How Botox for men works
Botox is a neuromodulator that can be used to relax the underlying muscle that causes dynamic wrinkles in the face. Made of botulinum toxin A, Botox works just as effectively on men as it does on women. When injected into the muscle, Botox will temporarily paralyze the injected muscle, effectively preventing wrinkles and lines to appear as the muscle will not contract, thus lessening the appearance of the wrinkles. Botox for men will typically provide results for 3 to 4 months, and treatment can be repeated, though no more often than once every 3 months. While some results may be seen a few days after treatment, the patient should not expect to see optimal results until 1 to 2 weeks after injection.
What areas to inject Botox for men
Botox for men can be particularly effective in treating signs of ageing in the upper half of the face. This includes glabellar lines, which form between the eyebrow, crow’s feet, and deep horizontal forehead wr ...
What is Synvisc One?
Synvisc One, also known as Hylan G-F 20, is a single-use intra-articular injection made from hyaluronan. Synvisc One is an effective treatment to help relieve pain and delay surgery in patients living with osteoarthritis of the knee. This injection works by implanting a fluid that is similar to synovial fluid, which is the fluid in the joint that lubricates and absorbs shock. When there is not enough of this fluid in the joints, it can lead to pain and limited mobility. Hyaluronan, the key active ingredient in Synvisc One, is also naturally present in the fluid of the joints and helps return functionality and reduce pain once the patient is treated with Synvisc One. When patients are treated with Synvisc One, they can expect relief from osteoarthritic pain for up to six months.
Side effects of Synvisc One
While treatment with Synvisc One is very safe and effective, there are some common mild side effects that may occur. Approximately 1 in 14 patien ...
What is Dysport?
Dysport, also known as abobotulinumtoxinA, is a neuromodulator and cosmetic injectable made of botulinum toxin A, the same substance from which Botox is made. While Dysport has many medical uses, it can also be used cosmetically to help freeze muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, or the wrinkles that appear due to repeated facial movements. By freezing the underlying muscles in areas where dynamic wrinkles appear, the muscle is no longer to contract, thus diminishing the appearance of lines and folds, and preventing existing wrinkles from developing further. Dysport for crow’s feet is just one possible use for this cosmetic injectable—it can also be used safely and effectively to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines, the lines between the eyebrows that appear when we frown.
Why Dysport for crow’s feet?
Crow’s feet, also sometimes referred to as smile lines or periorbital wrinkles, can become a real source of insecurity for patients. The l ...
