Botox is often know as a cosmetic treatment females receive to cure those lines and wrinkles that are sore to the human eye. However, men are gradually turning to this safe, quick and effective treatment to reverse those dreadful signs of aging. The acceptance of Botox treatment for men is becoming more and more popular.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 14.6 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures were administered in the United States in 2012. Among those minimally-invasive procedures were Botox injections. Specifically, more than 300,000 men received Botox injections resulting in a 10 percent increase from the previous year!
Why the Bro-tox trend?
There are probably dozens of reasons for this increasing trend. Our staff here at BC Laser and Skincare found these are the most popular:
1.) Women are Influential – Men may be gradually coaxed into the notion by their girlfriends or wives. When they see firsthand the leading woman in their lives achieving positive results from Botox treatments they are persuaded in believing there is no harm trying a treatment eventually leading to additional treatments.
2.) Career Investment – These men do not want their worry lines and furrowed brows to leave them looking angry or exhausted. Some believe their jobs, careers and potential promotions are dependent on their appearance.
3.) Single & Middle aged – These men are anxious to look and feel young and more confident as they begin a new chapter in their lives perhaps seeking new partners.
How does Bro-tox work?
Here at BC Laser and Skincare, our well trained, educated and reputable Doctors carefully administer Botox Cosmetic into those commonly troublesome areas where many premature facial lines, unwanted wrinkles, and creases have a tendency to appear, such as around the eyes, mouth and on the forehead.
After receiving an injection, the muscles begin to relax. As a result, those unwanted lines and wrinkles fade or disappear, and the skin appears smoother. Frown lines, a common insecurity which can be misleading, make a man’s expression to be angry or upset, can also be reduced or eliminated with Botox treatment.
The non-invasive cosmetic procedure generally takes less than 20 minutes. Patients typically experience little to minor discomfort. There is virtually no recovery period and most men are able to return to their normal routine immediately.
While Botox injections for men often produce dramatic improvements, these results are not permanent. Results vary but usually become apparent within 7 to 10 days, sometimes sooner. Typically, patients can expect one treatment to last 3 to 4 months, after which additional injections are strongly recommended to maintain the various aesthetic results of Botox treatment.
Enter the Bro-tox Era
For men who want to appear younger and feel more confident, the procedure represents one of the safest, most effective and least invasive cosmetic procedure available. The majority of men who get the treatment are 30 to 40 years of age, some older and are interested in minimizing or preventing early signs of aging.
If you are considering it, you should have expectations that are in line with the reality of what you can achieve through treatments. A thorough discussion with a professional at BC Laser and Skincare can help patients develop realistic expectations and avoid disappointment.
