BOTOX® Cosmetic for Men
More and more men are choosing nonsurgical procedures like BOTOX® Cosmetic to revitalize their appearance and restore the strong, energetic look of their younger years. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment works by injecting a product containing botulinum toxin into the target area, relaxing the facial muscles that can cause wrinkles.

Is BOTOX® Cosmetic Right for You?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a minimally invasive treatment that may be a convenient and effective alternative to surgical procedures for many men. While the natural effects of aging are inevitable, BOTOX® Cosmetic can target the root cause of dynamic lines and wrinkles responsible for the skin’s aged appearance, resulting in a younger, more confident look.
The most commonly treated areas are the lines on the outsides of the eyes, known as crow’s feet, and the vertical wrinkles between the brows, also known as frown lines. BOTOX® can also help to treat neck bands and wrinkles in the chin, nose and forehead.
Wrinkles Around the Eyes/Brows
Often, the first signs of aging appear around the eyes and between the brows. BOTOX® injections work by inhibiting these facial muscles from contracting, which can reduce or eliminate the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the treated areas. Many men find that smoothing the skin in these areas better defines their strongest facial features.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are the most popular cosmetic procedures performed annually, both in the U.S. and worldwide. Learn more about the product, how it works, and why it’s important to choose qualified injectors.
All About BOTOX® ►
A Comprehensive Approach
BOTOX® injections may be used alone or combined with other treatments for a more comprehensive approach to combating the signs of aging. Because BOTOX® treats dynamic wrinkles, but doesn’t address volume loss in the face that is often characteristic of the body’s aging process, dermal fillers can work as a complement to treat deeper lines and wrinkles caused by loss of volume. For a longer-term solution, some men choose to combine BOTOX® injections with additional skin rejuvenation treatments.
Since the results of BOTOX® injections are temporary, most men find it convenient to make regularly scheduled appointments every few months. This ensures that your look stays consistently revitalized and well-defined.
Your Recovery & Results
A typical BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment session takes only about 10 minutes. There’s little to no downtime required afterward, so there’s no need to schedule time off of work for your appointment. Some men even find that BOTOX® fits nicely into a lunchtime session, which can make it an ideal treatment option even with today’s busy schedules. It is recommended that you remain upright for the few hours following injections, but you should otherwise be able to immediately return to your normal activities.
Some minor redness or swelling at the injection site are common side effects of the procedure, but these should diminish on their own within 1 to 2 days. You can expect to see noticeable improvement as soon as any swelling or redness subsides, but most men see their final results within 5 to 7 days following treatment.
Your results should look natural, with a more refreshed and enhanced appearance. Many men find that erasing etched-in lines and wrinkles from their face can give them a stronger, more relevant look that boosts confidence in today’s competitive workforce.
