"Brotox" Offers Men Enhanced Cosmetic Results, Reveals Tampa Skin Care Practice

Kristen Thornley, ARNP of Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Explains How Tailoring BOTOX Cosmetic to Suit the Anatomic Needs and Aesthetic Goals of Male Patients Can Achieve Improved Results

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - Men have unique needs and goals with regard to cosmetic enhancement procedures, states Kristen Thornley, ARNP, MSN, FNP, a registered nurse practitioner in Tampa. She explains that by customizing BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments, male patients can typically achieve enhanced results tailored to their more masculine features.

To optimize the benefits of BOTOX® injections for male patients, Kristen Thornley advises taking a comprehensive view of both the anatomic indicators and the cosmetic goals of the individual. Men tend to have thicker skin than women, she indicates, therefore creases often will be deeper, particularly along the forehead. Aesthetic ideals can be different too, she adds; men often request very subtle rejuvenation for two reasons: They may not want friends and coworkers to suspect they had "work done," and maintaining some signs of aging can provide the appearance of ruggedness or character, something many individuals desire.

Kristen Thornley explains that while the desired outcome and anatomic needs may differ between men and women, the candidacy requirements usually will be the same. Typically all patients, she notes, should be over the age of 18, and they should inform the nurse injector if they are allergic to any substances. Other qualifiers may exist depending on whether BOTOX® Cosmetic or another cosmetic injectable will be used, she notes, and the nurse injector will explain what those are during the consultation.

Ultimately, Kristen Thornley encourages men considering BOTOX® Cosmetic to seek out a qualified nurse injector who is offering customized "Brotox" treatment to maximize the potential benefits and ensure the safest experience possible. Male patients deserve to have the same access to natural-looking aesthetic enhancement as women, she says, and the procedure should be personalized to suit their desired outcome.
