Fellas, let’s face it: the women in your life aren’t the only ones starting to show signs of age. And although they may tell you the crow’s feet at the corner of your eyes are endearing, you may not exactly agree.
You might think Botox® is just a treatment for women, but that’s far from the truth. At MedSpa at ChristiMD, we offer Botox for men in Katy who want to reclaim their natural youth and stop wearing their stress on their face!
What is Botox?
Botox is a brand of neurotoxins, which are produced from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. When it is injected in small quantities into the muscles, it blocks muscle contractions. When your muscles contract, your face forms wrinkles. If Botox stops the contraction, the wrinkle can’t form in the first place.
Botox is both preventative and corrective. It smoothes out wrinkles and fine lines while also stopping your muscles from forming more of them.
Will it look like I’ve had work done?
Our team of licensed aestheticians, certified physician assistants, and expert injectors complete ongoing training to keep their skills sharp. Our philosophy is “aging intentionally”, so we don’t freeze faces; we provide natural looking results. You’ll be able to maintain all of your natural expressions and no one has to even know you’ve had anything done!
In providing Botox for men in Katy, we will lessen the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles, but you will not look like you’ve “had work done”.

Botox for men in Katy entails a few pre-care instructions.
10 days prior to injections
Stop taking aspirin and blood thinning medications.
3 days prior to injections
2 days prior to injections
Do the injections hurt?
Everyone has a different pain tolerance, but there is minimal discomfort associated with Botox injections. If needed, we offer a topical anesthetic and Pro-Nox, an analgesia to manage treatment anxiety.
We know you’re busy, but a session of Botox for men only takes about 10 minutes! You’ll be in and back to regularly scheduled programming in no time.
No Downtime, no problem
One of our favorite things about Botox is how you can carry on with your day right afterward; there is no downtime.
When will I see results?
Botox injection results are pretty fast-acting. You’ll see some results within 24 to 72 hours, but results will take around 1 week to be fully visible.
Your results will last between 3 to 4 months. Over time your body metabolizes Botox and it starts to dissolve. So, if you don’t like Botox, you’re not stuck with it forever.
How many sessions will I need?
If you do like Botox and you want it to last for longer than 3 months, then you’ll have to come back for maintenance sessions. A session once every 3 to 4 months is common for those who want to maintain results.
