Botox has become so popular with male clients that the media gave it its own nickname: Brotox! This remarkable cosmetic injectable is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin, which is used to temporarily paralyze the tiny muscles responsible for frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet. With these muscles subdued, the face receives a noninvasive, nonsurgical “lift” that can restore vitality, youthfulness and attractiveness. Colleagues and friends may remark that you look well-rested and at peace, without being able to quite put their finger on why.
Dr. Capizzi will administer Botox using very fine needles that are in and out in a matter of seconds. The entire procedure takes around 20 minutes and can therefore be performed over a lunch break, with an immediate return to the office or golf course afterwards. Some clients may experience minor irritation at the injection site, but the majority find receiving Botox is a swift, painless process. Results become visibly pronounced within a few days, and typically last from 4-6 months, after which Dr. Capizzi will advise on follow-up sessions.
