Botox For Men
Think that Botox is just for women? Think again – more men than ever are discovering the benefits of Botox injections. The goal of Botox for men is to minimize stubborn lines, yet still ensure you don’t look overly done. With the right plastic surgeon, Botox for men can help you look experienced, yet youthful and energetic enough to be up for any task. Dr. Tenley Lawton specializes in Botox injections for men at her plastic surgery practice in Newport Beach, CA.
Botox For Men By Dr. Lawton in Orange County
Botox was one of the first anti-aging injections to hit the market, and it’s still the most popular. Botox is primarily used to minimize the look of deep forehead wrinkles and lines, as well as smooth away crow’s feet. Botox can even be used to achieve a non-surgical eyebrow lift, which can be ideal for patients who want to look more alert without resorting to a traditional eyelid lift. Botox can be administered in small doses, which is ideal for finding the right balance for looking both experienced and youthful.
Botox injections can be done within 15-30 minutes and produce almost immediate results (usually within the first week). There’s no recovery period necessary, so patients can return to their normal activities. Results last about 3 to 6 months.
If you want to minimize forehead wrinkles without looking overly “done,” contact Dr. Lawton’s Newport Beach office to schedule a consultation. Dr. Lawton is an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon who can inject just the right amount of Botox to achieve your desired results.
How Botox Works
Botox’s primary ingredient is botulinum toxin type A, which interrupts the signals that the brain sends to the muscle’s nerve endings. When this occurs, the muscle becomes temporarily “paralyzed,” causing the skin resting above to relax. The ultimate goal of Botox is to ease the frequent expressions that cause forehead wrinkles. Botox results typically last for 3 to 4 months, at which point patients will need to undergo another injection to maintain their results.
Side effects are minimal; however, patients should anticipate some swelling, redness, and mild discomfort at the injection site. There’s no recovery time needed, so patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Good candidates for Botox are men (and women!) who want to ease the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines without looking overly “done” (frozen). Botox is most successful when used to treat mild to moderate forehead wrinkles and fine lines. Candidates should also be 21+ and have realistic expectations for their treatment.

Men may be more concerned about Botox results, as they don’t want it to be obvious that they’ve had work done. That’s why Dr. Lawton starts with minimal injections, as she can build up to the results you want without going overboard.
