Botox for Men
Botox is a simple non-surgical treatment injected into facial muscles in order to improve the look of wrinkle and frown lines. Once the Botox treatment has been injected it will produce a smoother complexion. Botox has been used for over ten years and is becoming the most chosen non-surgical treatment to reverse the signs of aging. Botox injections are very safe and require no downtime for recovery.
Fillers for Men
Cosmetic fillers are substances injected through small needles into the skin to smooth depressions caused by wrinkles, folds and scars. Fillers can also be used to augment existing features such as eyebrows, lips and sculpting the nose.
Botox Services Frequently Asked Questions
Who is best suited for Botox?

When will I see the results from Botox injections and how long do they last?
The results from a Botox injection will be visible within a few days as you will see marked improvements in your frown lines. The improvements to your frown lines will continue for approximately 30 days and last up to 4 months.
How does Botox work?
Botox works by temporarily blocking nerve impulses from travelling to the injected muscles. As a result this reduces the muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows and on the forehead. When you squint, frown or concentrate the muscles between your brows contract, this will cause your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.
