Women aren’t the only ones that get distressed about the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. New York men start to get those telltale signs of aging as well, and they can have a significant impact on a man’s self-esteem. If you are one of those men wishing you could snap your fingers and make those lines disappear, we have a treatment that can diminish aging symptoms and restore your youthful yet masculine look.
The Botox Difference
Botox has been touted as a top anti-wrinkle treatment for women. However, its benefits are not limited to our female patients. Plenty of men have tuned into the advantages of regular Botox injections to maintain their younger image. Whether you want to refresh your appearance for your mate, enhance your selfies or regain a competitive edge in a youth-oriented business world, Botox may be a positive step toward reaching your goals.
You’ve probably heard of Botox, but maybe you didn’t realize just how widespread this treatment is among men today. In 2017, more than 467,000 men underwent Botox injections, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That number has been steadily increasing since 2000, with a 397% growth rate in 17 years. It appears men are discovering that looking good and feeling confident is not just for women any longer.
What Can Botox Do for You?
Botox addresses wrinkles that form over time due to certain facial expressions you might make regularly. For example, if you squint frequently, you might begin to develop fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes known as crow’s feet. If you find yourself deep in thought multiple times a day, it could lead to horizontal lines across the forehead or deep vertical creases between the eyebrows. At first, you might only see the lines when expressions are made. Over time, the wrinkles can become permanently etched on the face, giving you an aged appearance that doesn’t match your active lifestyle.
Botox is an FDA-cleared medication that reduces the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that create them. Because the treatment works from the inside out, no one should notice that you had a cosmetic procedure performed. Instead, they will see a refreshed look without the deep creases that make you appear perpetually tired or worried. Results appear within a matter of days and will extend for a few months before you will need a touch-up procedure.

Botox injections are administered quickly and discreetly by Dr. Chugh at Anand Medical Spa. The needle used is relatively small, so you won’t feel much discomfort as the injections are performed.
