Botox is for both men and women!
It is common misconception that botox anti-wrinkle injections are popular only among females. Though females certainly do discuss about it openly, men are equally showing interest in improving and enhancing their facial profiles. Men have different level of facial muscles and thickness as compared to women who have different aesthetic enhancement goals.
As the facial muscles and skin of men is thicker than women, they might need slightly more of Botox to achieve the desired results. The most popular areas of treatment with Botox in men are frown lines and area along the forehead while majority of women look for a treatment of frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines and neck cords.
The reasons why men and women desire to have Botox treatment are almost the same. At CosmeDocs, both men and women are seeking the cosmetic benefits of Botox because in some it helps to improve their social status while in others it is essential to remain competitive at their office or workplace. Some demand it for their own satisfaction, to quench their desire of always looking young and attractive.
Baby Botox / Microtox – What is this?
Baby Botox or Microtox is specially designed advanced Botox injections technique which is used for the clients who demand a more natural and subtle changes in their facial profile. BabyTox treatment is also highly popular and demanded by those clients who are undergoing first Botox anti-wrinkle treatment or by ones who are working in a media or fashion industry which constantly need them to maintain their natural and youthful expression in a natural and delicate manner.
The production of collagen declines in the facial areas which are continuously creasing. This is the reason that with ageing the wrinkles permanently sets in the creased areas. When botox is injected into that area it relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles which gives time to the body to produce collagen which helps in reducing those lines.
When Baby Botox is injected in small amounts into the upper skin layer called ‘dermis’ and into the superficial layer of facial muscles, it relaxes the outermost layer of muscles while diffusing into sebaceous and sweat glands. This slows down the movement of muscles in the superficial layer which creates wrinkles without effecting the movement of deep muscles, giving a more natural and soft appearance. This does not create a ‘frozen’, ‘expressionless’ or ‘over-botoxed’ look.
The additional advantage of Baby Botox is decreased sweating and production of sebum which is a cause of reduction in skin sheen and open pores.
Majority of the people choose the Baby Botox treatment for the common treatment areas such as frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead. They want this treatment in order to retain their remaining muscle movements for more natural expressions along with the skin smoothness which is offered by Microtox.
