Botox….Not just for Women
“Bro-tox” – noun. The definition of bro-tox is the act of a man getting injections to reduce the effects of aging. An example of bro-tox is what some male Hollywood actors get before awards season to minimize wrinkles.
Women are not the only ones obsessed with looking younger. Many men nowadays, also want to hold onto their youth. Just like women, men often want to look their best. Besides, why should women get all the fun? It’s a well known fact that BOTOX® is the only FDA approved product on the market to help relax your muscles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So it’s no secret that men are getting more Botox now than ever before. In fact, Botox Services has increased in men by 337% since 2000! Men are becoming increasingly aware of their skin. Whether it’s finding a good skincare routine, working out at the gym or prepping their meal plans–men are consciously (and subconsciously) making it a point to take care of themselves. Mentally, physically and spiritually men are more aware and in tune with their well-being.
However, there is an anatomical difference to facial features when it comes to men and women getting BOTOX®. The main difference is that female eyebrows are naturally arched, while those belonging to men are horizontal. The best use of Botox on male faces is to soften the deep creases that form between the brows, forehead, and crow’s feet that can make a man look unintentionally sad and angry. Because men are bigger and stronger it usually takes a little more BOTOX® to do the job for men because they tend to have more muscle mass (naturally) than women. Of course, you will want to talk to a doctor first, but the suggestion is that the first time you go in for a treatment, you want to discuss your lifestyle with your injector, and ask for optimal correction so that you are pleased with your results. And remember, the key to success is consistency.
Main Reasons Men Are Considering “Bro-tox” at Beautique:
- Restores Youthfulness: Women aren’t the only ones who feel pressure to look younger — men face the same challenge. More and more men are concerned about how the effects of aging affect their lives. Like women, men worry that crow’s feet and frown lines will have an impact on their overall looks. This happens outside of Hollywood as well. Just think, men that are in sales or in the public eye need to look professional and youthful to help close the sale or get the promotion they want.
- Combats Excessive Sweating: Medically known as hyperhidrosis, this condition causes a person to sweat when there isn’t need to, such as sweating to regulate body temperature and avoid overheating. Those who are afflicted with hyperhidrosis sweat when there isn’t a need for temperature regulation. Extreme perspiration can be embarrassing. The FDA approved the use of BOTOX® as a way to treat severe hyperhidrosis in 2004. BOTOX® turns off the chemical that turns on the sweat glands. Brotox can be injected into the underarms, forehead, back of the neck and even the hands and feet to block the discharge of sweat. Remember the last time you shook a hand that was sweaty and clammy? Ugh, now Botox can help with that so that our men can perform confidently at work. And just think how much you’ll save in dry cleaning bills!
