If you do a Google image search for “Botox,” you may notice that 99% of the pictures are of women. While women are certainly in the majority when it comes to receiving this safe, effective, and minimally invasive treatment for rejuvenating skin and reducing imperfections, men can also benefit from Botox, and are doing so in increasing numbers.
A study released this year by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery found that 453,281 men received botulinum toxin injections (commonly known by their brand names as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin) in 2016, or almost 10 percent of the total procedures performed. A 2015 study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that the number of men getting Botox treatments increased by an astounding 337 percent since 2000.
It’s not hard to understand why. The same things that make Botox an appealing treatment for women apply to men as well, and at Dr. Busso Aesthetic Dermatology in Miami, we invite men of any age to reap the benefits of this procedure.
What is Botox?
Botox injections are the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure, used to reduce facial wrinkles through minimally invasive injections. Made from botulinum toxin A, Botox is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent approved by the FDA for several different uses. It can block the nerve muscles responsible for the repetitive actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away to produce a younger and more refreshed appearance.
Botox treatments are usually focused on the forehead, the upper face, and around the eyes, but they can also address smoker-lines, lip wrinkles, laugh lines, neck wrinkles, and many other issues.
How Men Can Benefit from Botox
For men, the most popular areas of Botox treatment are between the eyebrows and across the forehead. Men can benefit from Botox’s ability to help them look relaxed and younger for business meetings or social purposes, such as online dating profile pictures. Even younger men in their 30s and 40s can have noticeable furrows from smiling, frowning, and other facial movements. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired.
Quick, safe and effective, Botox for men reduces facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months with no downtime and little to no discomfort. Botox treatments can not only prevent these lines from deepening, they are a simple and powerful way reduce unwanted signs of aging and increase self-confidence.
