It should be no surprise the Botox for men works just as well as it does for women. Over the past two decades, men have found that they too are often judged by their looks and have increasingly turned to plastic surgery to improve their appearance. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of men opting for cosmetic procedures has increase 106% since 1997. So it is no surprise that more men today are using Botox than ever. The media has even coined the term “Bro-tox” because of the larger market share that men now command within the cosmetic industry.
Why Botox for Men is on the Rise
As Hollywood and magazines increasingly feature good looking men, regular guys are doing their best to keep up with the images portrayed in the media. While looking good was always considered important in landing the most beautiful women, now careers are influenced by appearance as much as by skill or experience. Studies have proven that attractiveness in men, as well as in women, helps in almost every area of life. A handsome man is considered to be more intelligent, confident, healthier, more sincere, a better leader and a superior father. The increased focus has driven many men to consider procedures that they would not have even thought about in the past. And Botox for men is one of the easiest ways to turn back the clock on aging.
Botox works for Men to Reduce Wrinkles
The recession has been more difficult for middle age men than for any other segment of the U.S. population. More men over age 45 were laid off from work since the downturn started in 2008. The job market has become far more competitive so many guys want Botox to make them look younger in order to contend. Botox is a quick way for men to reduce wrinkles around their eyes and forehead region. While it can be used in other facial areas, men tend to get their first Botox injections in the glabella (the area where 11’s form between the eyebrows). The vertical lines known as the 11’s, make people appear to be angry or stressed which is not a helpful look when interviewing for a job. Botox helps relax the muscles in this area to release the wrinkles. This will make a man look younger, less stressed and more confident overall.
Women encourage Botox for Men
An interesting development is many men are encouraged to try Botox at the suggestion of their wife or girlfriend. According to Dr. Dominic Castellano, an expert facial plastic surgeon in Tampa, “more of our female patients are giving the gift of Botox to the man in their life. We’ve seen a definite increase in men coming to our office because they’ve already noticed the great results of Botox injections from their spouse… or they have come because their wife or girlfriend recommended Botox to help reduce wrinkles.” It is important to note that men should be very careful in selecting a knowledgeable and well-experienced injector that can administer the Botox in a way that looks natural. While more men are choosing to undergo cosmetic procedures, there is less lee-way for men. Too much Botox or injections made in the wrong facial muscles can result in some side effects such as rigid facial expressions or a drooping eyelid. Therefore, it is best to work with an experienced professional administrator that is working under the direction of a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist in order to get the best results. “Botox for men works wonders, but only when done right” says Dr. Dominic Castellano of Elite Facial Plastic Surgery.
