8 Amazing Things You Didn’t Know Botox Could do for a Man’s Skin

Society is more interested today in how men look than ever. It's refreshing to see men slowly drop the belief that good skincare is for women. It's even better to see them make conscious choices to give their skin executive attention.

While the beauty industry has responded in kind to accommodate them, a big chunk of them is still hung up on poor skincare. Some of the reasons they give are they don't have time for it, their skin doesn't need special attention, it's an expensive and unnecessary idea, they are too old for it, and so on.

But if grooming should start somewhere, it should be on our dear skin. In this article we'll look at the benefits your skin can get from botox. Read on for a comprehensive understanding.

The Benefits of Using Botox

The only thing that gets better with age is wine. Our bodies tend to droop and drop in all the wrong places as we get older. Botox has been a go-to solution for many beauty professionals-and for a good reason.

Botox is actually a toxin (onobotulinumtoxin A ) that temporarily relaxes the facial muscles responsible for facial wrinkles. It works by blocking certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract. We've listed seven benefits it has on your skin.

1. It Will Take Years Off Your Face

Exercising, eating right, getting a good night's sleep, and avoiding stress are great pieces of advice for staying young. But you can only look young for so long. Botox is designed to reduce the appearance of laugh lines, crow's feet, and wrinkles on the forehead as age kicks in. If applied early, it can prevent them from forming in the first place. Look young, feel great!

2. Reduces Sweating

Sweaty skin underarms and skin are good company on your run. It's a whole other issue to have a sweaty patch on your underarms during a presentation at work. There's such a thing as stress sweat too. It's a bad case of extra smelly sweat when a man is stressed.

Botox counters excessive sweating by paralyzing sweat glands, which reduces the amount of perspiration in a given area.

3. Managing Persistent Acne

Facial skin can be really problematic. From razor bumps to acne, your skin can make you look tired all the time. Facials are one way to manage these issues. However, if you have oily skin, those pimples always come back.

Botox can get you better results than a regular facial. Little amounts of it injected superficially prevents the skin from producing too much oil. Your dermatologist can inject it in only some areas, for example, the forehead, and not the entire face. Remember to always go to a board-licensed dermatologist for these injections.

4. Tightening the Jawline

Whether you have a square jawline or not, having saggy skin around the jaws makes you look older. Botox can lift the skin and give you a softer appearance.  Injecting botox on to the jawline shrinks the muscles and lifts your cheeks for a youthful look.

5. Smoothening Your Neck

The neck is always among the first to give up signs that you're aging. It develops horizontal lines that are hard to ignore. Dermatologists suggest injecting botox above and below those lines to relax them and iron them out.

6. Getting a Nose job

Once you hit forty, the nose begins to move down and brings the whole face with it. You can get a botox injection between your nostrils to prevent the muscles in the area from pulling downward.

7. Relaxes Muscles

Botox is an effective muscle relaxant. If you have an eye twitch or lazy eye, a botox injection can relax the muscles around the eye to prevent these skin-altering conditions.

8. Restoring Athlete's Skin Elasticity

Athletes lose a lot of water during training. The skin responds in becoming stretchier. Botox maintains skin elasticity by stimulating fibroblasts which help the skin to produce more collagen and elastin.
