Botox is the ideal solution for men dissatisfied with their droopy eyelids, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines. With Botox, a few injections can restore your facial contours and angularity, making you look sharp, alert, and authoritative. Dr. W. Matthew White specializes in delivering subtle Botox results that restore your facial alertness without betraying signs of cosmetic manipulation.
In recent years, Botox has gained immense popularity amongst men who have discovered that it can improve their social and professional lives. Botox is made of a neurotoxin protein that blocks communication between nerve endings and the targeted facial muscles responsible for your wrinkles, i.e., the muscles you use to frown, smile, laugh, etc. As such, Botox suppresses the targeted wrinkles for up to 4 months.
Botox is the world’s leading FDA-approved cosmetic injectable for forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. However, it can also treat nasolabial folds, laugh lines around the mouth, smoker’s lines around the lips, drooping eyelids, and other signs of aging that make you look old, tired, and upset. Botox can reverse the signs of aging temporarily, restoring your facial youthfulness and alertness.
In the past, men stayed away from Botox because of the assumption that it left obvious signs of cosmetic work. However, advanced Botox techniques provide subtle results that leave no traces of cosmetic manipulation. Your cosmetic provider can alter the dosage to ensure you have access to the full range of expressions. Botox is now suitable for anyone who wants to look sharper and younger with discretion.

The Botox Procedure
During the Botox treatment, Dr. White will administer a highly-calibrated dosage into the strategically-chosen areas on your face with ultrafine needles. He numbs the treatment areas with topical anesthesia before the injection to ensure optimal comfort. The dosage is chosen according to your specific goals and concerns to ensure naturalized results with no signs of cosmetic work.
Dr. White will carefully select the treatment areas to prevent side effects or unwanted results. The number of injections depends on your specific goals. The entire treatment should conclude within 15 to 20 minutes, following which you can resume your daily activities immediately. If you want to maintain the results, you’ll need to schedule maintenance treatments every 3 to 4 months.
Recovery from Botox
Botox doesn’t involve any downtime — you can resume your daily activities immediately. But you should expect mild side effects, such as redness, swelling, bruising, and irritation. The side effects will gradually dissipate over the week, and the results will start manifesting after 3 to 4 days. The final results appear within a week and stay for 3 to 4 months.
The following are some tips to ensure optimal recovery:
- Avoid strenuous workouts for the first 24 hours.
- Don’t massage the area to prevent Botox from migrating to other areas.
- Keep your head elevated for the first 24 hours.
- Gently exercise your face by using your facial expressions.
- Leave the treated area alone.
- Don’t apply makeup for 24 hours.
