What is BOTOX for men?
Minimizing the visible effects of aging on your upper face has never been easier than with BOTOX injectable treatments at Chiseled in The Woodlands, TX. BOTOX is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily limits the movements of the underlying facial muscles responsible for creating different expressions, such as smiling, frowning, and grimacing. Over time, dynamic lines can develop as a result of these repetitive muscle movements, creating undesirable wrinkles and fine lines along the forehead, between the brows, or around the eyes. BOTOX injectable treatments can significantly reduce the appearance of these wrinkles and fine lines to help you attain a younger and smoother-looking profile. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Melissa Chiang and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Younghoon Cho are happy to offer BOTOX injections to patients who wish to rejuvenate their appearance.
BOTOX was first the first injectable wrinkle relaxer to the market and has the strongest brand recognition. Since its introduction to the market, BOTOX has been joined by Dysport®, XEOMIN®, and Jeuveau™, which are other FDA-approved muscle relaxers that work using the same mechanism of action to relax targeted muscles that cause wrinkles. At Chiseled we carry all of these great brands.
"Great Experience with Botox - Dr Chiang was very personable and even took the time to check a suspicious spot on my skin before my botox treatment. I am very pleased with the results as well!"- P.B. / Yellowpages / Jan 22, 2016
"Dr. Cho has done several facial rejuvenation procedures on my face. I love the outcome because the procedures have not made me look "plastic" but have made me look well rested and fresh. He has done InstaLift, Botox, moderate fillers around the jawline. All of which have been done exceptionally well. I've had minimal down time or bruising. I've also had Ultherapy above the brow line to improve and lift the area. I love Dr. Cho and his staff especially Gina. She goes above and beyond what is expected for her patients."- T. / Google / Mar 09, 2018

Who is a Candidate for BOTOX?
BOTOX injections often work well for men who want to smoothen the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their upper face without surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventive treatment even if you do not yet show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It can be an effective nonsurgical treatment if you're frustrated by forehead lines or noticeable furrows between your brows. It's also a solution for lines around the eyes (Crow's feet). During your consultation, your doctor may also discuss the benefits of Dysport, XEOMIN, and Jeuveau, to explain the benefits of each product. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, we may recommend a filler product.
Advanced BOTOX techniques
More advanced applications for BOTOX include softening other dynamic lines in the face, as well as shaping and lifting the lower parts of the face. Other advanced applications for BOTOX:
- BOTOX can be used to smooth wrinkles on the nose known as bunny lines
- Lip lines around the mouth that deepen with expressions are also called "smoker’s lines" or "bar code lines." Relaxing the muscles around the mouth with BOTOX can soften the appearance of these lines. For visible lines that present with even without expression, dermal fillers or lasers can be used in combination with BOTOX for better results.
- BOTOX can help to narrow the appearance of the lower face by addressing the masseter muscle, which, when overactive (masseter hypertrophy), can create a more ‘squared’ appearance of the lower face. Relaxing the masseter muscle can slenderize the lower face and create a more harmonious balance between the proportions of the upper and lower face.
- Oftentimes, our salivary glands, such as the parotid gland, can be enlarged and widen the appearance of the face or cause bulging of the glands. Some patients may even experience excessive saliva production when these glands are overactive. BOTOX can help to decrease the prominence of these glands and even reduce saliva production.
- Neck bands that are visible with expression can be treated with BOTOX. Targeting the platysmal muscle with BOTOX relaxes the muscle and softens the appearance of these neck bands. The Nefertiti lift is another technique that relaxes the neck muscle in strategic places along the platysma and converts the downward pull of this muscle to lift the tissue along the jawline and can result in a more lifted appearance of the jawline and softening of the jowls.
- Some patients feel the shape of their mouths makes them look sad. Although dermal fillers are often used to treat this area, BOTOX can help to weaken the muscles that pull the corners of the mouth downwards and give this area a lift.
- An orange peel, or peau d’orange, texture on the chin is caused by the mentalis muscle pulling on the overlying skin. BOTOX can be used to weaken this muscle, often resulting in a smoother appearance in this area.
Creating optimal results with BOTOX requires a detailed understanding of the underlying muscle anatomy as well as the impact of the aging process on the face. Dr. Cho and Dr. Chiang are both national trainers for injectables and regularly teach injectors around the country about the art and science of using muscle relaxers such as BOTOX to achieve the best results for patients.
What to expect during BOTOX Treatment
If it's your first time to visit our office in The Woodlands, TX for BOTOX, we often perform the treatment during the same appointment as your initial consultation with Dr. Cho or Dr. Chiang. Your doctor will ask you to make a few facial expressions using your upper face — such as frowning, squinting, smiling, etc. — to allow us to plan where to place the injections. We do a comprehensive assessment and analysis of your facial muscle movements, as well as other contributing factors of the aging process. We'll create a customized approach to address your aesthetic concerns; this approach may include BOTOX, dermal fillers, thread lifts, or energy devices to help replenish collagen in your face or resurface your aging skin. BOTOX injections are administered by both Dr. Chiang and Dr. Cho between the eyebrows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), in the forehead, as well as the lower face and neck.
We'll clean and prepare your skin and then inject BOTOX under your skin with a fine needle We'll follow the inject with a cold compress to help minimize discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally isn't needed. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 20 minutes, and then you can get back to your normal routine with no required recovery period.
HOW LONG IS RECOVERY AFTER BOTOX?
After your BOTOX session, you can get back to your day without skipping a beat; however, we do recommend that you avoid strenuous activities, like exercise, for at least one day. This will help minimize the appearance of bruising. The treated sections of your face may appear red, swollen, or bruised for 2 – 3 days, but you should not experience any long-lasting side effects. In many cases, it takes around one week before the final effects of BOTOX can be seen. We recommend that you return after two weeks so that we can assess your results and determine if we need to further optimize your treatment. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You can speak with Dr. Chiang or Dr. Cho about how often to make touch-up appointments at Chiseled to maintain your results.
How safe is BOTOX?
BOTOX is FDA-approved as a safe and effective way to treat mild to moderate facial wrinkles. If you're worried about the safety of BOTOX, it rarely causes complications when it is administered properly. BOTOX is also used by the medical community to treat other conditions such as headaches and excessive sweating.
What about BOTOX parties?
You may have heard of a trend where men who want BOTOX treatments gather together and administer doses themselves. These BOTOX parties are very risky and could cause serious and unwanted side effects. Instead, BOTOX should be done in a medical setting with an experienced injector.
How should I prepare for BOTOX?
Patients who are interested in male BOTOX treatments will learn the details during an assessment at Chiseled. Our team can explain how many units are needed and what results to expect. Make sure you disclose your medical history, any allergies, and current prescriptions before getting started.
