Botox for Men

26 July 2017

Martyn revisited Woodford Medical clinic in Danbury this week for another Botox treatment with Dr Patterson and it was time to catch up with Martyn and find out if his migraines had continued to improve. This is what Martyn had to say.

I have been amazed that the migraines have continued to stay away. They have been so dibilatating for so long that I had forgotten what if was like to be headache free for weeks at a time.Until you have suffered from Migraines you have no idea how ill they make you feel and so I can get on and enjoy my family life without worrying about bringing one on.

Also I have the added benefit of looking refreshed and relaxed with the Botox easing out my frown lines and crows feet"

 

Read the first intalment of Martyn's visit to see Dr Patterson

Martyn Robinson is a 33 year old married man with three children and works as a personal trainer at Virgin Active Chelmsford.

Martyn has suffered migraines for many years and finds working in the gym a particular trigger as the strong lighting affects his eyes and makes them feel very sensitive. Martyn normally suffers with one migraine at least every 2 weeks.

Although not usually too concerned with his appearance, when he is working at the gym surrounded by mirrors, Martyn would often find himself looking at his reflection becoming more conscious of his looks, noticing lines and wrinkles that he didn’t have before.

 “When weight lifting I have found that you put a lot of strain onto your face and neck by tensing and straining,  that’s when I can see how deep my forehead lines are and then once I have stopped lifting they don’t disappear.

Training in the gym and lifting heavy weights causes your face to create more dynamic lines than usual as the tension of lifting shows simultaneously during the workout. These dynamic lines will eventually settle into lines and wrinkles.

Martyn had heard about Botox through his best friend who has it done regularly and would always say to Martyn that he should have it done, as it also has the added benefit that it can help with his migraines.

“I kept thinking that I should definitely look into having Botox, but I am absolutely petrified of needles which really put me off. My friend talked me into at least going for a consultation at Woodford Medical and to see how I felt once I had spoken to Dr Patterson.”

After booking a consultation at Woodford Medical Martyn decided to go ahead with the treatment and had it done that day.

“After having my consultation with Dr Patterson I felt no concerns at all about having the treatment done. I explained how I suffer with migraines and I dislike the lines on my forehead and around my eyes."

Dr Patterson explained how Botox works for migraines and how he can also soften my forehead lines and crows feet, with the reassurance that the needles are very small and virtually pain free. He also went onto explain that Botox for a male client is very different than for a female client and for men it’s all about giving a “totally natural” improvement in a very discreet way. The frozen look is definitely not required for our female clients so is a complete no-no for our male clientele.

 After the treatment Martyn was pleased to note

“The treatment itself was indeed virtually pain free and over in a few minutes, I was so surprised at how quick it was.”

Martyn went on to explain,

“I went back to work after my treatment and no one had even notice I had anything done, it was great.”

The full effect of Botox takes between 4 – 14 days to develop and gives a smooth, wrinkle free appearance for approximately 3-4 months. We advise 3-4 treatments in the first year after that the affects may then start to last longer and the time between repeat treatments may increase.

We offer all Botox clients a two week review to ensure they are completely happy with their treatment. Martin returned to Woodford Medical after two weeks and was thrilled with the results and also as to how much it has helped his migraines.

“I am so pleased with the results, the wrinkles in my forehead have gone and I feel I look much younger and fresh faced. Also since having Botox I haven’t had a migraine and I don’t find my eyes so sensitive to the lights in the gym. I was telling my brother-in-law all about it and he has booked in to come and see Dr Patterson. I will be back again in three months for my next treatment!”
