Most centers and spas treat a lot of women but few men. That could be a red flag. A man can need up to twice the amount of Botox or more because their muscles are stronger. If your provider does not have enough experience injecting men, they may miss the subtle variations and peculiarities that distinguish men’s facial features and fail to give you the most effective treatment. You will never have to worry about that with us because we specialize in cosmetic procedures for men.
We Trained With A Team Selected By The Inventors Of Botox Cosmetics
The Carruthers, a husband and wife medical team, discovered Botox for cosmetics. She’s an ophthalmologist; he’s a dermatologist. They were using Botox to stop eye spasms when they noticed that the crow’s feet of the people they injected simply disappeared.
The Carruthers developed the treatment protocol, petitioned the FDA for the approval of Botox for cosmetic use, and wrote the defining textbook on the procedure. I have tremendous respect for these two pioneers and was delighted to train under their auspices.
The training was far more extensive and time-consuming than I had expected but it was worth it. I love hearing the compliments my patients get. And by the way, “Your Botox really worked” is not a compliment. “You look well-rested” is. Call us at 404-888-0228 and start looking like you regularly get nine hours of sleep a night.
Is Your Botox Lasting As Long As It Should?
Botox is a powder mixed with a saline solution. The more you dilute it, the less effective it will be. Unfortunately, a lot of providers weaken the solution to make more profit.
Many of our patients ask why Botox injections from our practice seem to last longer. It is simple: We do not dilute. We use the exact concentration specified by the manufacturer.
How To Keep Yourself From Getting Ripped Off
It is easy to charge less for Botox — just keep diluting the solution. How do you make sure that won’t happen to you? First, get injections from a medical professional you trust.
Second, ask them how they price the injections. They should be charging by the unit of Botox, not the area of the face. If they charge a flat fee for an area, they are basically saying that everyone’s facial musculature is the same and requires an equivalent amount of Botox.
When you come in for a Botox injection, the first thing I will do is a visual and manual examination of your facial anatomy. It is only then that I can estimate the number of units it will take to get the desired effect. Facial muscles are different in every person. What might take two units to relax a forehead wrinkle in one person might take three for the next.

Beware Big Needles
One patient was surprised when I wheeled in a tray of small needles. The spa he had been going to used one or two big needles for multiple injection sites. Now, big needles hurt and multiple injections make them dull. While using one needle for more than one injection is not illegal or unethical, it does not rise to my strict standards of care.
