Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox® is an FDA-approved injectable that more than 1 million people use to treat lines and wrinkles every year. Dr. Marshall recommends Botox to men with frown lines, crow’s feet, or frustrating forehead wrinkles.
Forehead wrinkles and frown lines form over the years due to repeated facial expressions creasing your skin. Botox uses botulinum toxin to block signals from your nerves to the treated muscles, making it impossible for them to contract. The result is softened wrinkles.
Each Botox treatment session takes about 10 minutes, and most men experience minimal downtime. It’s possible to notice results just 24 to 48 hours after your session. Results typically last up to four months.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are another popular type of cosmetic treatment for wrinkles. Where Botox uses botulinum toxin to block nerve signals, fillers use a solution like hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) to smooth skin and fill in lines and wrinkles.
Tru-Male Medical offers a suite of dermal fillers, including Radiesse®, to help men look and feel their best. Radiesse is FDA approved to treat wrinkles across your face, including:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
Radiesse immediately fills lost volume to lessen the look of wrinkles. The proprietary gel filler also boosts your body’s natural production of collagen to continue treating wrinkles for at least a year.
What aesthetic treatment is right for me?
Tru-Male Medical has the best injectables and dermal fillers available. Dr. Marshall recommends the best cosmetic treatment for you based on your aesthetic goals. Botox is a great option for patients with embarrassing frown lines, crow’s feet, or forehead lines.
If frown lines are your main frustration, Dr. Marshall may recommend Dysport®, an injectable that uses botulinum toxin to soften the look of frown lines. Dysport delivers natural results with just five injections above the eyebrows.
For wrinkles elsewhere on the face, including the cheeks, mouth, and nose, dermal fillers help fight the signs of age.
Let Dr. Marshall evaluate your skin and your desired look to help you decide which treatment is best for you.
