Botox for Men in San Jose

Botox for Men San Jose, Mountain View, & Surrounding Bay AreaServing Mountain View & the Bay Area


Botox is an injectable that uses botulinum toxin to vanish lines and wrinkles that form along the eyes and brow. Because these lines are caused by muscle contractions, Botox works by blocking the nerves that communicate with the muscles. Once the muscles have relaxed for several days, these unwanted lines will fade away.

Over the years, Botox has become so popular with male patients that it has earned the nickname “Brotox.” Dr. Alexander Ereso sees Botox vanish wrinkles on men just as well as it does on women, though he will usually need to use more units of Botox to achieve these results since men have more muscle mass on their brows.  

Male Botox Candidacy

Men who are displeased with the lines and wrinkles on their faces and have reasonable expectations for what Botox can accomplish are generally good candidates for Botox injections.

Benefits of Botox for Men

Men who receive regular doses of Botox enjoy a more youthful appearance and often find that it improves their social and professional opportunities.

While Botox is best known for smoothing out unwanted facial lines, it can also be used to treat several other conditions such as excessive sweating, chronic migraines, eye twitching and bladder problems.  

Comparing Botox to Dysport and Jeuveau

Dr. Ereso also carries Dysport, Jeuveau and Xeomin, three other botulinum toxin type A injections that may be worth considering. While the effects of Botox tend to last longer than Dysport, Dysport kicks in more quickly, making it the better choice for patients who want to be able to show off the results within a few days. The main difference with Jeuveau is that it takes out some of the potentially dangerous proteins found in Botox, making it a slightly safer procedure. Speak to Dr. Ereso about which of these injectables he recommends for the specific lines you want to eliminate.    

Why Choose Us for Botox?

The team at Pearl-Ereso Plastic Surgery Center are experienced at maximizing the results of Botox. Furthermore, they understand the precise points to target on a man’s face to both reduce wrinkles and enhance the patient’s handsomeness.

Preparation for Wrinkle Reduction Injections

Before your injection, Dr. Ereso will confirm you meet the health requirements for Botox. Show up with your face washed and be prepared to clean your face of facial creams to receive the injection.

You can plan ahead by not taking aspirin, ibuprofen, blood thinners and muscle relaxants in the weeks before your treatment as the combination could cause side effects. Stop smoking as well as that can interfere with the healing process.

Botox Injection Recovery and Results

Botox Injections in ProgressThere is no downtime necessary for patients who receive Botox. You will be free to leave the office and resume everyday activities. You may experience some mild redness, swelling or bruising near the injection point, but those should clear up within a few days.  

The effects of Botox will start appearing after three or four days, though the full results may not settle for up to two weeks. The muscles should remain relaxed for at least a few months, meaning that the lines should stay away for approximately the same amount of time. 

Risks and Safety Concerns for Botox

Although it is rare, Botox carries a risk of botulinum toxicity. Patients who are affected by this toxicity may find it difficult to breathe, swallow and speak. If you start to exhibit any of these symptoms following Botox treatment, please go to a hospital.
