They’re calling it “Brotox” and its use has been steadily climbing since 2012. Botox for men is rapidly gaining popularity, especially among Baby Boomers who are getting less satisfied every time they look in a mirror.
These days, people feel far younger for their age than ever before, so it makes sense that more than just women want to find way to look younger.. While a lot of men aren’t quite ready to sign up for more invasive procedures such as face lifts, body lifts, and implants (though more are starting to come around to those ideas as well), the use of Botox has risen enough that it was considered the go-to holiday gift for the men-of-a-certain-age in your life as far back as 2011.
More and more men are making their appointments for Botox injections. One of the biggest driving forces is to maintain a look for competitiveness in the workplace. In a still unsteady economy where job loss and layoffs are common, many professional men are feeling the pressure to be professionally experienced without looking too experienced. Botox injections that concentrate on relaxing facial lines is one way to achieve that. Looking younger can be the difference when it comes to getting hired, regardless of one’s actual age.
There is also the matter of convenience. Botox is an easier solution than more traditional cosmetic surgery options like face lifts. The injections can be done quickly and easily in the comfort of a plastic surgeon’s office, with no hospital visit required. Results are quick and long-lasting (though not permanent), with little to no recovery time. Seeing results right away is a huge factor for both men and women who think Botox may be the right answer for their needs.
Botox can’t fix everything, but it can alter some of the most common problems associated with aging:
- Around the eyes: reduces the appearance of crow’s feet and similar dynamic wrinkles under and around the eyes.
- The Brow Area: decreases the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, including deep furrows
- On the Forehead: smooths out and lessens deep forehead wrinkles
- Around the Jaw: smooths out the look of an overly square-shaped jaw for a more rounded, oval appearance
When you consider that these corrections often take less than ten minutes in a doctor’s office, it’s easy to see why more men are considering Botox to be a fast, easy, and effective way to deal with the aging process.
