How to inject Botulinum Toxin (Male Client)

Injecting Botulinum Toxin (male client).

Botulinum toxin injections, commonly known as Botox® injections (which is in fact a popular brand and not the product), are a popular cosmetic treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. While these injections are widely sought after for their cosmetic benefits, it’s essential to understand their uses, limitations and the high risk of complications. This is why we stress the importance of correct training and the necessity to achieve an OFQUAL regulated Level 7 Aesthetics Qualification. We hope that the government will soon bring in regulation to the cosmetics industry, making it mandatory for all aesthetic practitioners to have a Level 7 certificate before they are allowed to inject botulinum toxin.

Injecting a male client with Botulinum Toxin Video

In this video we look at injecting a male client with botulinum toxin as part of Master of Aesthetics Level 7 (MAP 7).

We look at where to inject, how to achieve a natural look on a male with botulinum toxin, the angles at which to inject and how these change depending on the depth of the muscle at each point. We also briefly look at how to avoid complications by pointing your needle in the correct position.

PLEASE NOTE – Botulinum toxin injections are potentially very dangerous. Serious risks and complications can occur causing permanent damage to a clients face. While this video gives a very brief overview, this is not an educational resource and is not considered thorough training. To really learn about the safest way to administer anti-ageing injections and to treat a client you must complete the Level 7 Certificate in Aesthetic Practice.

This video assumes you have already marked-up your injection points. You can visit this page to learn more about marking-up for botulinum toxin (includes video).

Uses of Botulinum Toxin Injections:

  • Cosmetic purposes: Botulinum toxin injections are commonly used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. In this video we look at injecting a male client to get a natural look.
  • Medical purposes: In addition to cosmetic use, botulinum toxin injections are also used to treat various medical conditions, including chronic migraines, muscle spasms, and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

Risks and Considerations: While botulinum toxin injections are generally considered safe when administered by qualified professionals, there are risks associated with the procedure. These may include:

  • Pain, bruising, or swelling at the injection site
  • Cosmetic complications such as Dropped brow (brow ptosis)
  • Temporary weakness or paralysis of nearby muscles
  • Rare but severe complications such as difficulty swallowing or breathing
  • Plus more – we will cover these on the MAP7 / Level 7 Aesthetics course
