Les injections de toxine botulique en esthétique chez l’homme
Botulin toxin injections in cosmetic treatment of men

V. Gassia
23, allée Charles de Fitte, 31300 Toulouse 


Les hommes manifestent un intérêt croissant pour les procédures esthétiques non chirurgicales, même si les femmes représentent la grande majorité des patients. Les injections de toxine botulique A, en particulier, sont très prisées par les hommes : c’est la procédure non chirurgicale la plus fréquemment réalisée : 296 000 Injections aux US en 2007 (Fig. 1). Les hommes souhaitent conserver naturel et maturité, tout en améliorant leur apparence.

La technique d’injection classique ne diffère pas chez l’homme et les bases sont similaires aux femmes, cependant, ils requièrent souvent des doses plus importantes. Par ailleurs, la morphologie faciale masculine présente des spécificités à respecter lors du choix des points d’injection.

Men seek to remain natural while retaining their maturity and improving their appearance.

The classical injection technique does not differ in men and the basics are similar to procedures performed in women. However, they often require larger doses. In addition, men’s facial morphology presents certain specificities that must be respected when choosing the injection points.
