Overview of BOTOX® for Men
In recent years, there has been a surge in men seeking out anti-wrinkle treatments such as Botulinum toxin (BOTOX®). Once primarily seen as a women’s treatment, men are now equally interested in the potential benefits of anti-wrinkle treatments. At our Face & Fillers clinics in Surrey, we are now seeing an increasing number of men taking advantage of the many benefits of anti-wrinkle treatments.
Botulinum toxin is a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, as well as help prevent their progression. It can also be used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), jaw clenching and migraines. Botox works by relaxing the muscles and softening the appearance of wrinkles and lines. With just a few injections, it can make a huge difference in the appearance of the skin, leaving it looking younger and more refreshed.

Anti-Winkle Treatments for men
The anti-ageing medication is injected into specific muscles to stop them from contracting. This then prevents the lines and wrinkles from appearing to give a smoother and more youthful appearance. This treatment also prevents lines and wrinkles from getting worse.
For men, Botox can be particularly helpful in addressing signs of aging that are commonly associated with the aging process. It can be used to help soften forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines, as well as to contour the jawline and reduce the appearance of neck bands.
At Face & Fillers, our team of experienced doctors are highly skilled in providing Botox treatments for men. We are passionate about helping men look and feel their best and understand that everyone’s individual needs and goals are unique.
We take the time to discuss each patient’s individual needs, and tailor treatments to suit their specific requirements.

Botox a prescription-only medication that we source only from UK pharmacies. Botox can be used to smooth and reduce the lines and wrinkles which add to the ageing appearance. Anti-wrinkle treatments are a quick and convenient way to improve the appearance on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes without any need for surgery.
The process explained
The anti-ageing medication is injected into specific muscles to stop them from contracting. This then prevents the lines and wrinkles from appearing to give a smoother and more youthful appearance. This treatment also prevents lines and wrinkles from getting worse. You can expect to see the results within 4 – 10 days. The treatment can last up to 3 months or more.
When is the best time to start anti-wrinke treatments?
It is worth considering anti-wrinkle treatment when lines and wrinkles begin to appear readily during regular or mild facial expressions, such as smiling or frowning. Usually, this begins to happen towards the late 20s and mid-30s but varies from person to person. It is best to start Botox treatment earlier than later to maintain a smooth, youthful appearance and delay the signs of aging by preventing further, deeper lines and wrinkles from appearing.
Difference between Botox for Men and Women
Muscles in men are predominantly much stronger than in women, and that means we need to tailor the dose and location of the treatment in order to maximise the effects of the treatment and results for the patient. This may mean that more Botox is required in order to gain a good quality result in men because their muscle mass is a lot stronger.
Achieving the desired look for men
The look that men are going for can be massively different to the look that women are going for. For example, women may want a more frozen, smooth appearance, whereas a male patient will look for a more rigid look with softer lines to maintain expression so that it’s undetectable he has had any treatment. This is completely achievable with the correct consultation, dosing and location of treatment in order to achieve the desired results. A male patient may have 10 lines across his forehead, and we can reduce the lines down to 2 – 4 lines. This allows him some level of lines or softer lines in order to reach his expectation and maintain the expression.

Does a Botox procedure hurt?
The treatment is relatively painless to a minimal level of discomfort. The injections are so small and shallow, they usually don’t cause more than a slight sting. The area may feel tender or slightly sore afterwards, but this usually fades quickly. Some people may also experience mild bruising at the injection site, but this is usually temporary.
How long does a Botox treatment last for?
Botox treatments can last between 3 – 5 months. The more regularly you maintain your treatment, the longer it can last.
How quickly can I see the effects of a Botox treatment?
It takes 4 – 10 days for the effects to show. Most people start to notice an improvement in their lines and wrinkles from day 4 and enjoy the results for 3 months onwards.
What are the most common side effects of a Botox treatment?
Some people experience small spots of bruising where the medicine has been injected. This is most common around the corner of the eyes as the skin is thin and there are many tiny vessels. The small bruising can usually be easily covered up by make-up and usually disappears within 1 – 2 weeks.
How long does a Botox procedure take?
The actual procedure takes approximately 5 – 15 minutes to complete the small injections in the appropriate places. Your appointment will usually be booked for 30-45 minutes to make sure there is plenty of time to discuss your medical history, aftercare instructions and to ask as many questions as you need.
Is a review appointment included in the price?
All treatments include a 2-week review appointment to check the progress of your treatment and make sure you are happy with the results. Before and after photos are usually taken to see the progress made.
What happens if I need a top-up?
At the 2-week review appointment, a top-up dose can be given where appropriate to make sure you get the best results from the treatment.
All treatments include:
- an initial consultation;
- review appointment after 2 weeks;
