Are you a man who is looking to treat your wrinkles, fine lines or just trying to look younger but you’re not sure which procedure to turn to? In this blog I’m going to cover which product would work best for you!
I’m sure you’ve heard of Botox. When you hear about a celebrity getting work done it’s always “Did you see their new Botox work?” Botox is a go-to for men. Men are getting Botox more than ever before. Botox is made from Botulinum toxin, which is used to treat wrinkles and fine lines and it’s FDA approved to treat these areas. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Botox was the top nonsurgical procedure for men in 2017, with over 160,000 men receiving Botox injections.
A wide range of men are turning to Botox, from men in their 20s to men in their 60s! It’s a great nonsurgical solution for wrinkles and fine lines and it noticeably enhances your appearance. The procedure requires no anesthesia and takes just a few minutes!
Some reasons why men are getting Botox in record numbers, is to remain competitive in the workplace, to boost their self-esteem or to just enhance their appearance while keeping a natural look!
Another great option for men is Dysport. Dysport is also a Botulinum toxin. Dysport is a go-to for women these days, sometimes being recommended over Botox but it’s really all about preference. Men will love Dysport just as much, or more than Botox.
Dysport has been proven to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, as well as the forehead and crow’s feet. It smooths the lines between your brows in a way that looks natural. You will still look just like you, but unwrinkled.
How is Dysport different from Botox?
While both use the same ingredient, there are differences in the protein content due to differences in their manufacturing. If someone is used to a certain number of Botox units, they will likely need to increase the number units when switching to Dysport. Some people will say Dysport produced better results for them than Botox, this will vary from one person to another.
Reasons men might choose Dysport would be similar reasons why they would choose Botox. Dysport would also just require a few minutes of your time. We can help assess which product would work best for you, just give us a call and set up a consultation with Dr. Kurzman.
