Improving Signs Of Aging
Botox treatments are not exclusively for women. Many men are getting Botox to help improve signs of aging in the face due to wrinkles. Currently, 1 in 10 patients receiving Botox are men. Understanding the key differences in male and female facial anatomy is what makes both Dr. Feledy and Dr. Maiorino the best providers of Botox for men in Washington DC.
Look More Youthful
Botox is short for "botulinum toxin", which is a popular injectable treatment.
