Since we last wrote about men and BOTOX®, interest in male-centered applications of the popular injectable—known informally as “Brotox”—has only grown. As recently as February 2016, media outlets from affiliate TV stations in the western states to England’s The Guardian have reported on the steady increase in men paying more attention to their appearance, accepting the benefits of cosmetic treatments, and arriving at practices ready to smooth out their creases and folds.
Men are no strangers to the benefits of BOTOX® at Skin Care and Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills, where dermatologist Dr. Derek Jones has frequently applied his talent and deep history with BOTOX® Cosmetic to the unique aesthetic needs of the male face and skin.
While many men would like to look younger, some also choose to preserve a sign or two of their age as a marker of experience. A few gray hairs, for instance, or perhaps a telltale wrinkle in a key spot, can convey an air of authority. Control and precision are imperative in creating a look that balances youthful skin with a distinction years in the making.
Since BOTOX® works quite well at preventing specifically targeted muscles from moving, great care must be taken to ensure that the treatment focuses on the exact areas that will yield the desired ultimate look. A patient’s health is, of course, always paramount, but a true aesthetic artist can develop beyond these safety basics to most effectively deploy knowledge of facial anatomy, including how the muscles interact with the skin above, as well as with each other.
In other words, BOTOX® injections on the forehead should complement any treatments happening on the rest of the face—BOTOX® or otherwise—as well the patient’s natural appearance. The goal is a harmonious look, not an isolated area free of wrinkles.
Given Dr. Jones’ history with researching, applying, and educating other physicians on BOTOX®, he understands that best way to deliver subtle, yet impactful results is the careful formulation of a personalized treatment plan and the knowhow and physical dexterity to carry it out.
