What Are Injectables For Men?
Botox® and Restylane® brought on the wide-spread use of anti-wrinkle and anti-aging injectable treatments. For men, these injectables reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, smoothing the skin and giving it a younger appearance. Commonly treated areas among men are the eyes, cheeks and brows.

How Can A Man Prepare For Injectables?
Two weeks prior to your treatment, avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (Advil, Motrin, Aleve or Ibuprofen), Gingko Biloba, Vitamin E or fish oil supplements. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site. If you require a pain remedy during this time period, it is ok to take Tylenol.
What Can A Man Expect During Recovery From Injectables?
Most patients experience no discomfort and are perfectly fine after their injectable treatment. Any discomfort is mild. You may take Tylenol® to help with pain (avoid aspirin, Motrin, and fish oil for 1 week). A cool compress may be used for additional comfort, but do not use ice, since it may irritate the skin.
Should I Try Injectables For Men?
If you desire to have a smoother, youthful appearance, injectables may help you achieve that with minimal effort. Injectables for men can treat many areas including the brows, eyes, mouth, nose and other wrinkles and folds around the face. Dr. Swift can access the condition of your skin and help you formulate a personalized treatment plan that will get you closer to the skin you desire.
Are Injectables For Men Right for Me?
If you are concerned about the look of deep wrinkles and folds around the face, brows, eyes, nose and mouth, injectables may help give you softer, younger-looking skin. Dr. Swift can properly evaluate you as a candidate for injectables.
How Much Do Injectables Cost?
Costs for your injectable treatment will vary depending on the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result.
