WHAT IS BOTOX?
The numbers also don’t lie. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 400,000 U.S. men received “Brotox” (a.k.a. Botox for men) injections in 2014. That’s a tiny fraction of American males overall, but a 337 percent increase in any market over a decade is nothing to scowl at (pun intended)
Botox is a neuromodulator; an injectable treatment that smooths wrinkles, without the risk or recovery time of surgery. An increasing number of men in the Fair Lawn, NJ area are using Botox to look refreshed and youthful, for that slight edge in business and social life.

The treatment takes only a few minutes and is performed in the office. The effects of Botox take 7-10 days to develop and last 3-4 months after a single treatment. Botox is most commonly used to treat and prevent wrinkles between the eyebrows, horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, and crows feet. There is no downtime after Botox treatment, which (combined with the excellent results it delivers) makes it one of the most popular dermatological treatments. As we tell the many patients who ask us, ‘what is Botox’, it is an excellent treatment for anyone who would like to treat or prevent wrinkles without surgery.

Botox is an injectable substance that is a medical-grade form of the botulinum toxin A, also called botox botulism. It is a medical protein that is injected into the muscles of the face to minimize the appearance of furrows and lines.
Botox for Frown lines
Frown lines are the result of gathering or knitting the tissue between the eyebrows into a fold. They are caused by the repeated action of underlying muscles associated with facial expression.
Botox for Crow's feet
Crow’s feet are wrinkles etched in the corner of the eye. Unlike wrinkles or expression lines on other areas of the face, crow’s feet can appear to look deeper or more pronounced on the skin . Some of the leading causes of crow’s feet include UV exposure and the loss of collagen and elasticity that come with age.
Botox for Brow lines
Brow lines produce a sad look on many people which deteriorates the facial appearance. Some people consider treating frown lines to improve their appearance and enhance their self-esteem.
Stress causes facial tension which results in repeated facial expressions. Smoking also causes repeated motion which can lead to the development of frown lines around the mouth. Tobacco smoke causes narrowing of blood vessels, reducing the supply of oxygenated blood to the tissues. This causes the development of brow lines.
Botox injections for sweating (hyperhidrosis)
Botox also works beautifully for hyperhidrosis. For treatment in the underarms, Botox is injected in about 15-20 sites in the armpits. Decreased sweating is seen about two weeks later, with the sweat reduction lasting approximately six months. Botox injections also work well to treat excessive sweating in the face, soles of the feet and palms of the hand.
Botox injections for Migraine headaches

Botox for Low back pain
Lower back pain is a common cause for visits to the doctor.
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), low back pain is the most common cause of job-related disability. At least 80 percent of Americans will experience low back pain in their lifetime.
Most low back pain is the result of an injury, such as muscle sprains or strains due to sudden movements or poor body mechanics while lifting heavy objects.
Acute back pain can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, while chronic back pain is pain that lasts longer than three months.
Low back pain is more likely to occur in individuals between the ages of 30 and 50. This is partly due to the changes that occur in the body with aging. As you grow older, there’s a reduction in the fluid content between the vertebrae in the spine.
This means discs in the spine experience irritation more easily. You also lose some muscle tone, which makes the back more prone to injury. This is why strengthening your back muscles and using good body mechanics are helpful in preventing low back pain.
When injected into muscle in tiny amounts, botulinum A (Botox) can stop or reduce muscle spasm by blocking nerve signals to the muscle. … Botulinum toxin A has been tried as a treatment for chronic low back pain. Although this practice is experimental and not well tested, it has shown promise.
