MOST MEN HAVE SURELY HEARD ABOUT BOTOX BEFORE? MAYBE THE ARGUMENT ABOUT WHETHER A CERTAIN MOVIE STAR’S LIPS ARE REAL OR INJECTED WITH BOTOX? MAYBE THEY’VE OVERHEARD WOMEN DEBATING ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT TO HAVE THE PROCEDURE DONE? REGARDLESS, MOST GUYS THINK OF BOTOX IN THE SAME VEIN AS FEMININE PRODUCTS: FOR WOMEN ONLY.THIS IS NOT TRUE THOUGH. IN FACT, STATISTICS SHOW THAT MORE AND MORE MEN ARE GETTING BOTOX TREATMENTS IN MEDISPA SETTINGS, AND IT’S NOT JUST RESTRICTED TO ANCHORMEN OR ACTORS.
As a male, Botox may be a good option for you. Whether you desire to smooth out those forehead wrinkles, soften your look, lift up the sag/tighten your skin, end excessive underarm sweating, or even to take care of the skin around your face and limit the effects of future aging, Botox can help.
In fact, men are signing up for “Brotox” because they want to look and feel better about themselves, feel more attractive, and look more rested and fit, but the biggest motivator for men getting Botox is to remain competitive in the marketplace. Looking young can give them that edge.
In 2014, over 400,000 men received Botox treatments, which many not seem like much, but that represents a 337% increase since 2000. The year 2016 saw the number rise to over 450,000. The average age of men going for treatments is also decreasing each year from 42 with some men as young as 28 signing up for it.
If Botox can help men look younger, feel better about themselves, and stay competitive in the market, why aren’t, even more, men doing it? The simple answer is social stigma.
Aside from the belief that cosmetic surgery is for women (not true), a lot of men believe they need to wear aging on their face as a sign of masculinity (also not true). Other concerns are about safety, a length of time for the procedure, and loss of feeling, all of which are unfounded concerns. Botox injections have been FDA approved since 2002, most treatments take 10 minutes, and any loss of feeling is typically recovered within a few hours of treatment.
