With men becoming more aware and conscious of their looks, they are warming up Botox injections to remove wrinkles and lines. The number of men opting for Botox injections is on the rise. Dr Shakthi Kandan J., who specialises in dermatology and cosmetology, says: “More men are open to the idea of botox injections nowadays.” “Men are more aware of the procedure and inquire about the process in detail before opting to take Botox injections. Selecting a doctor with the right skill and technique is of foremost importance,” adds Dr Shakthi. A disadvantage of doing a Botox injection is the change in facial expressions. Side effects of Botox are often light bleeding over the spot of the injection. The effects of the Botox injections also tend to wear off with time depending on the type of injection. “There are injections that wear off after six months to one year, following which one can opt to take it again,” says Dr Shakthi.
