Men need more Botox than women
Date:12/28/2007

Chapel Hill, NC December 28, 2007 A review published in Dermatologic Therapy reveals that men can be treated with Botox for cosmetic procedures in the same way as women but require higher doses of Botox in all treatment areas.

There has recently become a growing interest in cosmetic procedures by men. Although most practices see a majority of women, the number of male patients who seek treatment is slowly increasing.

Men often require more units of Botox than women which may be because men have a greater muscle mass than women. Similarly, it has been a common clinical observation that larger, stronger men need more units per treatment area than slender, small-boned men. The most common cause of inadequate results in male patients is under-dosing, which may lead to men requiring additional Botox injections.

Various areas of the male face can be treated with Botox and injections need to keep in mind the greater muscle mass in men, the author notes.
