Botox Injections for Men: A Rising Trend
Although plastic surgery is commonly associated with women, more men nowadays are having cosmetic procedures, such as Botox, to make themselves look younger. Botox for men is increasingly popular for reducing wrinkles and fine lines on male faces. Nine-time Olympic Gold Medalist Mark Spitz has had Botox treatments and has since become a spokesman for this anti-aging treatment to help men.
From working out and eating well to keeping fit and dressing sharply, men are becoming more conscious of their appearance. With women looking younger as they age, men have begun to realize that they need to keep themselves youthful to keep their women’s interest and also to compete in the job market. In today’s competitive society, more men are turning to cosmetic procedures that enable them to look and feel more youthful, including dermal fillers and Botox. While women make up most cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures performed, cosmetic surgery for men is growing in popularity. Since 1997, the number of cosmetic procedures performed on men has increased by 121%.
HOW BOTOX WORKS
Botox and dermal fillers are non-surgical procedures that last a few minutes and do not require anesthesia. The muscles in your face are controlled by nerves that learn to anticipate commands from the brain. It is the same muscle memory that helps you swing a golf club or shoot a basketball without consciously manipulating every muscle in your face. Your face becomes habituated to creating certain expressions, which your face maintains, thus creating unwanted wrinkles. Botox works by inhibiting the muscle’s ability to contract. In doing so, the cosmetic anti-aging treatments effectively allow muscles to relax and assume their natural crease and wrinkle free forms.
BENEFITS OF USING BOTOX
- Quick procedure – usually takes less than 15 minutes
- No anesthesia is required.
- Can resume normal routine immediately; return to work the same day!
- Short recovery period
- Results are usually seen within 2–3 days.
