Dicas para a aplicação de toxina botulínica em homens

Dermatologists treating men’s frown lines with neurotoxins should take a few important things into consideration, according to Miami, Fla.-based dermatologist Jeremy B. Green, M.D.

Dr. Green gave a talk on botulinum toxins for men, during the March 4 presentation, “Botulinum Toxin Applications: Past, Present, and Future,” at the 2017 American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla.

“When treating the male patient with botulinum toxin, consider using a seven-point injection, instead of the traditional five-point brow injections for frown lines, with one injection site on each side of the forehead,” Dr. Green tells Dermatology Times. “This can prevent the dreaded brow peaking ‘Spock’ look–a tell-tale sign of [botulinum toxin] injections your guy will not want to display.”

Another tip for male patients: When treating the frontalis make sure to treat the muscle all the way superiorly to the hairline, according to Dr. Green.

“Failure to do so can result in a ‘shower cap’ appearance, where above the relaxed portion of the forehead, frontalis fibers are still contracting. Most men … are sheepish about getting neuromodulator treatments, so inject him properly, so the world knows he looks great but can’t pinpoint why,” he says.
