Many men assume Botox to only be a treatment for women; however, this is actually far from the truth. In just the last five years, there has been an 84% increase in men’s Botox procedures in the United States alone. Men in their early 30s start to experience progressively deepening wrinkles around the face. These wrinkles can initially appear as dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that only show when your face moves). However, over time they can develop into deeper set static wrinkles. More and more men are turning to Botox to not only treat fine lines, but also to prevent deep wrinkles from forming in the first place.
Additionally, now more than ever, men are utilizing Botox to help treat hyperhidrosis, i.e. excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis is most common under the arms, in the groin area, on the palms, and on the soles of the feet. The condition occurs outside of normal exercise and exposure to heat. Botox works to combat excessive sweating by temporarily flipping the off switch on chemical secretions that signal your sweat glands to sweat. Studies have shown that Botox injections can reduce underarm sweating by 82-87%, and that it’s 80-90% effective on the palms.
To treat your hyperhidrosis, Dr. Hakimian injects Botox just below the surface of your skin. You should notice preliminary results after 2-4 days, and full results after around two weeks. Dryness from hyperhidrosis Botox injections usually lasts anywhere from 4-12 months.
