Botox has become the 'go-to' treatment for many looking to rejuvenate their faces filling in fine lines and wrinkles. But how do you know if it's for you, what is actually does and what the safety implications are? Today we'll answer all these questions and tell you why Botox has become such a popular treatment in Manchester for wrinkles and fine lines.
What is Botox?
BOTOX®, as it's commonly known, is the brand name that technically is a substance called botulinum toxin, which is used frequently in medicine to treat a variety of muscular conditions. Botox works by blocking nerve activity into the muscles it's injected into, reducing activity temporarily and thus decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst having a positive effect in restoring youth. Often, Botox treatments are combined with others such as dermal fillers to compliment them and add additional volume to the skin and plump them out, dependant on the area of treatment.

Can Botox be used for Men?
Dr Rose has explained that whilst men may have stronger and more dominant features than females and age slightly differently due to the depreciation levels of collagen over a period of time, that generally speaking, the anatomy and physiology is the same and as such, men can use Botox treatments in the same manner that women can to treat various areas of concern.

Botox treatments are generally well tolerated and extremely safe, with some minor bruising or swelling for a couple of days generally the largest side-effects most individuals will encounter.
