Dudesport and Brotox: Dysport and Botox for Men!

Father’s Day is right around the corner and you may be wondering what in the world to get that special guy in your life.

Well, if he has made a subtle mention of getting older, perhaps it is time to call in the troops at Art of Skin MD. If the furrows between the brows need to be tamed, or the horizontal forehead lines are getting worse, or the wrinkles next to the eyes are no longer distinguishing but disheartening, perhaps it is ponder some wrinkle control for your man with Dysport or Botox.

Here are some great, short videos featuring Dysport administered by me (Dr. Melanie Palm) in a female patient to treat the forehead, brows, crow’s feet and even the jelly roll underneath the eyes and nose wrinkles called bunny lines:

The reason I term Botox and Dysport with the nicknames “Brotox” and “Dudesport” when treating men is because my male patients receive treatment unique to their female counterparts. Male patients often have stronger muscles, which means that more product may be required to soften the muscle movement causing wrinkles on the face.

Additionally, the technique of injection when treating males with Botox or Dysport differs somewhat from women. Our facial features, men versus women, are different, and the ideals of what a feminine and masculine face is also differs. A male brow should remain relatively horizontal and not curved or peaked like the female eyebrow. Male brows in general are heavier than females.

Forehead muscle movement may also differ between my male and female patients. For this reason, it is critical that a man deciding to treat his facial muscles with a neuromodulator select a board-certified dermatologist that is appreciative of the anatomical differences and goals with a male patient.

Dysport and Botox is a fast, easy, and painless treatment. I ensure that patients are comfortable but thoroughly explaining the procedure and making them aware of next steps. Furthermore, the use of very fine needles and pinching the skin for distraction and improved patient comfort.
