Think that BOTOX® Cosmetic is just for women? Think again – more men than ever are discovering the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. The goal of BOTOX® Cosmetic for men is to minimize stubborn lines, yet still ensure you don’t look overly done. With the right plastic surgeon, BOTOX® Cosmetic for men can help you look experienced, yet youthful and energetic enough to be up for any task. Dr. Tenley Lawton specializes in BOTOX® Cosmetic injections for men at her plastic surgery practice in Newport Beach, CA.
BOTOX® Cosmetic was one of the first anti-aging injections to hit the market, and it’s still the most popular. Commonly referred to as Brotox when used for men, BOTOX® Cosmetic is primarily used to minimize the look of deep forehead wrinkles and lines, as well as smooth away crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic 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® Cosmetic can be administered in small doses, which is ideal for finding the right balance for looking both experienced and youthful.

Good candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic are men (and women!) who want to ease the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines without looking overly “done” (frozen). BOTOX® Cosmetic 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.
If you want to minimize forehead wrinkles without looking overly “done,” contact Dr. Lawton’s Newport Beach office to schedule a Brotox consultation. Dr. Lawton is an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon who can inject just the right amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic to achieve your desired results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic’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 muscles to relax.
Men may be more concerned about BOTOX® Cosmetic 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.
The ultimate goal of BOTOX® Cosmetic is to ease the frequent expressions that cause forehead wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can be done within 15-30 minutes and produce almost immediate results (usually within the first week). Results last about 3 to 6 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 minimal recovery time needed, so patients can return to their normal activities about 4 hours after the procedure.
