Botox® has been one of the leading injectable treatments for years, and continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic treatments among male patients. At Newport Plastic Surgery, we offer Botox® under the expertise of Dr. Go, a skilled plastic surgeon in Newport Beach, Irvine, Huntington Beach, and the surrounding areas of CA.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is an injectable treatment composed of a purified botulinum toxin, a neuromodulator that relaxes muscles in the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The Botox® treatment is especially favored among men because it can produce subtle wrinkle-reducing effects while also preventing wrinkles from developing or worsening. In fact, Botox® is such a popular treatment among male patients that it is commonly referred to as “Brotox.” With Botox® treatments at Newport Plastic Surgery, patients can reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines to achieve a refreshed appearance around the eyes and forehead.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
The cost of Botox® can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver a patient’s desired results. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Go of Newport Plastic Surgery, he will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific cosmetic goals. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing through CareCredit® to make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the Botox® Treatment Like?
Patients often find the treatment quite tolerable and are able to remain relaxed during the injection process. Injections are made into and around the facial areas. The exact location and number of these injections will depend on the patient’s unique treatment goals. A Botox® treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes.
At Newport Plastic Surgery, Dr. Go takes pride in personally performing all injections for his private patients and does not allow medical assistants, nurses, medical students, or surgical residents to practice on his patients.
Is There Any Downtime After Botox®?
There is minimal downtime after Botox®, where patients are recommended to take it easy the rest of the day to minimize swelling. Thus, patients are able to return to the gym, the office, and their usual activities soon after their appointment. Patients may notice some minor swelling or redness around the injection area, but these effects typically fade within a few days.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Botox®?
Dr. Go takes special care when providing male patients with Botox® in order to ensure that the results look natural and preserve the masculine features of the face. The results from Botox® will become visible within a week of treatment, after the formula takes effect in the face. Patients can expect their results to last about two to three months, after which time additional treatments can be performed to maintain results.
