Wrinkle Smoothing Injectables for Men in Charlotte
The lines and wrinkles that appear across your forehead (transverse forehead rhytids), between your eye brows (glabellar “frown” lines), and smile lines at the corners of your eyes (crow’s feet) and on your nose (bunny lines) are actually the result of muscle movement beneath the skin and the steady passage of time. As you make facial expressions throughout your normal day, your facial muscles contract, causing the overlying skin to wrinkle. This is quite apparent when most people frown, emphasizing the glabellar frown lines between your eyes.
Over time this continual wrinkling of the muscles causes facial lines to stay longer and become more pronounced. For men, whose facial muscles tend to be much thicker and stronger than a woman’s, and whose skin is typically thicker, these lines may become quite deep and eventually can become permanent.
Our physicians Dr. Kara Criswell & Dr. Bryan Criswell offer these treatments at both of our Charlotte offices. Botox and Xeomin are simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatments that can improve, and in some cases completely erase mild to moderate wrinkles. The treatment, which is performed in our office, consists of a few tiny injections and generally takes 10-15 minutes. After your procedure, you will often be able to see a dramatic result the same day or within a few days. Results may last four months, although individual results vary. Our doctors will tailor your treatment to your goals. After your treatment, you can still smile, frown, and look surprised. It will not ‘change your look’. You will just look younger and more rested without the wrinkles and creases you had before.
