While Botox procedures is usually thought of in terms of reducing wrinkles – and it is mostly women who care about having them – the product can be of great use to men also, but not necessarily for wrinkles. There are several problems men suffer from that can be relieved or alleviated with the use of this drug – many would call it a wonder drug.

Excessive sweating

Men are usually the ones who sweat a lot, especially if they do hard physical work. That’s not so bad, but if they have an office job this can become a real problem. When sweating saturates clothing, sometimes several times a day, in spite of a good dose of antiperspirant and when they don’t have a physically hard job, men feel embarrassed and their clients or customers are put off by it. But Botox injections into the sweat glands can fix it quite simply. This is because it has the effect of freezing the gland so it doesn’t produce perspiration. It’s important to find a doctor who’s experienced in this treatment.


Men suffer from migraine as well as women, but often don’t seek the treatment that can really help them. Many men consider it a sign of weakness to go looking for a cure for something that’s not constantly a bother. Botox may not cure the problem, but it can certainly help to ease it; a good reason to go ahead and try it – under doctor’s orders, of course.

Enlarged Prostate

The operation for an enlarged prostate is painful – or at least, post op. is painful. But when Botox is injected into the gland it shrinks in size, giving good relief. It also prevents secondary problems such as frequent urination and urinary tract infections.  This relief has been found to last a great deal longer than the effects of wrinkle treatment. Expect it to last for at least a year. Note, if there is a tumour or cancerous lump, other treatment will be needed.


Again, many men suffer in silence when they have arthritis, or else they take over the counter painkillers that cause secondary problems such as ulcers. While still in the initial study stage, it has been found that Botox reduces pain and improves movement in arthritics. Additional study is needed to find out more about it, but it is expected to be the next big thing in treatment for arthritis.


Of course, men can have Botox treatment for wrinkles too. This can really help them to look younger and if this is a requirement for their job it’s a good reason to undergo treatment.  While most men don’t care that much about their looks, singers and actors or even anchormen who read the news might prefer to have fewer of those annoying wrinkles.
