Guide to Botox for Men (feature in GQ)
GQ wrote a guide to Botox for men, as more and more males look at this option. They interviewed Dr. Green in the article who notes a few different things for men looking to get Botox, from common questions such as how it’s not permanent, what to expect from the treatment overall and more. For example “your body will steadily metabolize the Botox, and muscular function will return. You should count on Botox “lasting” for 3-4 months,” says Green, though this varies.
The “The Guys Guide to Botox” article notes that Botox is used in many ways besides preventing “photo aging” in the face, says Green. “Other uses include blepharospasm (uncontrolled blinking), strabismus (lazy eye), hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), migraines, and bruxism (teeth grinding), among others in a similar fashion by blocking the release of acetylcholine.”
Common reasons for male patients include Botox on the glabella (between the eyebrows), forehead, masseter muscle (common to cure teeth grinding and build jaw definition), crow’s feet (around the eyes), and in the area of the chin (to smooth inconsistencies or build definition).
