Botox For Men

Facial lines caused by muscle movements, such as squinting or smiling, are known as dynamic wrinkles. This type of wrinkle can be tough to prevent and treat and may make you look sad or angry even when you are in a good mood. Tiny muscles cause the skin to fold when you make a facial expression, and over time, these folds become deeper and more permanent.

BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to soften facial lines and creases to provide a more youthful and refreshed aesthetic.

Benefits

  • Non-surgical
  • Little to no downtime

Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic are concerned about fine lines and wrinkles in the upper portion of the face but are not interested in a surgical procedure. Patients should be in good health and willing to continue regular treatments if they wish to maintain their youthful appearance.

How It Works

BOTOX® Cosmetic is made of a diluted form of botulinum toxin A, which blocks nerve signals to the facial muscles. When it is strategically injected, the BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily immobilizes the muscles, smoothing out wrinkles in the face. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used in the following areas:

  • Forehead
  • Frown lines
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Neck bands
  • Masseter muscle (for facial slimming)

Ice or numbing cream may be applied to the target sites for your comfort. Injections will then be made to relax the muscles that are causing fine lines and wrinkles. Your treatment can be completed in about 15 minutes.

Recovery and Results

Immediately after your injections, you may experience some swelling and redness in the treatment site(s). These side effects are usually mild and resolve within a day or two. You may return to most of your regular activities right after your appointment, but we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise for about 24 hours.

Most patients begin to see results 24 to 48 hours after their injections. Final results can take 10 to 14 days to develop. You can expect the effects of your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment to last for approximately three to four months. Maintenance treatments spaced three to four months apart can help preserve your refreshed appearance. Continued use may help extend the lifetime of future treatments.

FAQS

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines – the repeated muscle
contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your injector will inject these muscles
with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines
between your brows, your crow’s feet lines, and your forehead lines in 2-3 days, and you will see the full effect in 14 days.

BOTOX® Cosmetic lasts for an average of 3 months. We recommend BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments 3-4 times a year for most
people. When you see muscle activity returning to the point where you see your skin creasing, it is time for your next BOTOX®
Cosmetic treatment.

If you discontinue BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments, your muscle activity will just return to normal and you will begin to see your
wrinkles returning. Nothing bad will happen, you may just miss your previous smooth appearance!

Not at all! Many men make BOTOX® Cosmetic part of what they do to care for their appearance. The number of men choosing
treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic has risen fast – in the past three years alone, men have received over one million botulinum
toxin treatments.

The actual injection process takes less than 10 minutes. Your injector will take your photos, discuss your treatment goals and
perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment for you that aligns with your budget. Your initial consultation
and injection appointment will take about 45 minutes. Once you have a treatment plan in place, you will usually be in and out
of our office in about 20 minutes for your routine BOTOX® Cosmetic appointments.

Most patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your injector may use ice to numb the
treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your injector may apply a topical numbing cream before
administering your treatment. If you would like additional numbing time, please notify the specialist when scheduling your
treatment.

Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies, one percent of patients experienced eyelid
swelling in the crow’s feet studies, and one percent of patients experienced brow drooping in the forehead lines studies. Other
possible side effects include dry mouth; discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; headache; bruising; double vision;
blurred vision; dry eyes and allergic reactions.

Everyone is different and our injectors have extensive training to help them determine muscle strength and indications for
each individual’s treatment. With that said, a typical forehead treatment is between 12-25 units. A typical treatment between
brows is about 20-25 units. A typical crow’s feet treatment is between 24-30 units (12-15 units per side).

Yes! We love the temporary effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic injected into the muscle around the mouth. It gives a slightly pouty
appearance and often shows more pink of the lip when the patient smiles. A typical lip flip uses about 3-4 units.

Dr. LeConey is board-certified in emergency medicine, is a certified Allergan trainer, and trains physicians and nurses in the injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, and KYBELLA®.

Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for the Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ treatment are individuals who wish to remove hair from their legs, arms, bikini, back, chest, stomach, face, or neck. These candidates also have realistic expectations of their goals. The ideal candidate also has colored hair, as this laser does not work on gray or white hair.

How It Works

Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ works by using laser energy to gradually heat the hair follicles in the subcutaneous tissues until the follicles can no longer produce new hair. This technology also uses a patented DualChill™ treatment tip to keep the surface of your skin cool and comfortable during the treatment. Additionally, Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ uses a sweeping motion to ensure that the entire target area is tended to without leaving any hairs behind.

Recovery and Results

Laser hair removal does not require any downtime, and because treatment is so quick, patients can be back to their normal routine without interrupting their day. It is important to follow all post-treatment instructions and avoid direct sunlight to the treatment area, picking or scratching the treated skin, and plucking any new hairs that may grow between treatments.

To achieve optimal results, patients may require six to nine treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, depending on the area. Yearly maintenance is also suggested.

FAQS

You can expect results from a series of relatively short sessions. A trained laser technician performs each treatment and you are free to return to normal activities immediately after each session, with respect to working out.

There are a number of factors that can affect the success of a series of hair removal treatments, but generally, after each treatment, you will see a noticeable, permanent reduction in the number of hairs that re-grow in the treatment area. Remember that the laser only disables the follicles of the hairs that are in the "growing phase" at the time of the appointment.The follicles that are in the "resting phase" will begin to "wake up" over the course of the next few weeks. Typically, it will require 6-9 treatments to permanently reduce the number of re-growing hairs. Treatments are recommended every 4-6 weeks depending on the area treated. Maintenance sessions may be required, typically once or twice a year.

While pain tolerance is subjective, many patients often describe the sensation as soothing as a “hot stone massage” on most body areas, more sensitive areas can feel slightly more intense.

No. Alma hair removal requires no “down time” or recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work or school immediately.

Most importantly, before you undergo laser treatment, you must not expose the treated area to the sun or tanning beds. A sunscreen of SPF30, or preferably a total sun block of SPF50, should be applied whenever exposure to the sun is unavoidable. It is also important to shave the area being treated within 24 hours before your appointment. It is recommended to wait at least
4 weeks after having any waxing, threading, tweezing, bleaching treatments or use of a depilatory cream before starting laser hair removal and discontinue completely during the treatment series.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

In men, the decline in testosterone secretion that accom­panies middle age is called andropause (male menopause). Men begin to experience these unpleasant hormone deficien­cies between the ages of 30 and 45.

During this time, men begin to experience decreased drive and motivation. They find it harder to stay focused and sharp. They begin to feel the aging process. By age 50, testosterone levels deteriorate to 50 percent of what they were at age 20.

However, male hormonal imbalances can be easily and safely restored with transdermal testosterone replacement. Dr. LeConey can personalize a Bio-Identical Hormone Replace­ment Therapy program to optimize your health and well be­ing, and prevent the physical, emotional and mental effects of andropause.

Are you experiencing?

  • Decreased libido/sex drive
  • Decreased energy
  • Decreased strength/endurance
  • Decreased strength of erections
  • Deterioration in ability to play sports
  • Deterioration in work performance
  • Emotional changes (frequent anger, decrease in life enjoyment)
  • Evening fatigue
  • Reduced quality of sleep
  • High cholesterol
  • Hair Loss

Testosterone Replacement Includes


  • – Testosterone Replacement
  • – Cialis/Viagra – improve sexual function
  • – Weight Loss Program

Testosterone is the solution to decreased sex drive in middle age men.

Transdermal Testosterone is the easiest way to increase sexual desire and performance for men as they get older. The decreased sexual drive and less than satisfying sexual per­formance that arrives with middle-age is normal. It is caused by decreasing levels of testosterone that actually starts in the early 30’s.

Transdermal testosterone cream is the safe natural alterna­tive to testosterone injections. Until recently, testosterone replacement for men required shots every few weeks, given in the doctor’s office. Now, men can treat themselves with testosterone cream at home.

Testosterone is better than Prozac

Mild depression, frequently perceived as a feeling of apathy and loss of drive, is common in men as they ap­proach their forties. This is caused by a decrease in tes­tosterone, but frequently is treated with antidepressants that cause unpleasant side effects. Testosterone supple­mentation is the real solution. It restores the youthful vigor and zest for life.

Hair Restoration with PRP

Hair loss can be an embarrassing issue. Male and female pattern hair loss is a genetic problem that can leave you feeling helpless. Options, like prescription drugs, are often only partially effective and carry the potential for unwanted side effects. Surgical hair restoration can be expensive and does not treat the underlying medical problems.

Now there is an affordable way for you to improve your hair density without surgery or harmful side effects. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration involves a series of simple injections of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp.

PRP for Hair Regrowth


  • Increases blood supply to the follicle
  • Increases shaft size (thickness)
  • Triggers and maintains the growth phase
  • Controls hair growth cycle
  • Decreases hair loss

How PRP Works

Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has lead different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.

Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth. With PRP for hair regrowth, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the minaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstart dormant hair back into the growth stage.
