Back in the old days, fine lines and wrinkles were considered to be tough and masculine. The craggy, roughened look of the cowboy was the very epitome of a handsome, sexy man. Men had it in their minds that it wasn’t “manly” to take care of their appearance, letting themselves succumb to the “all-natural” look. But the times are changing! Thanks to celebrities like Ryan Seacrest and his former co-star Simon Cowell, men are quickly turning from the rugged cowboy crow’s feet to the sleek look of a modern male metrosexual with Bro-tox (Botox). Why? It’s quick, it’s easy, and it looks amazing!
The Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology recently reported that the number of American men getting Botox® has increased 258% in the last decade. Men are realizing it’s not just for women when they themselves can look years younger and capitalize on a competitive edge. Men are also seeing the health benefits associated with Botox®. Botox® can be used to relieve migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and help with eye and neck spasms. It is excellent for the male professional who does not have time for surgery and the recovery time needed afterward. This no-down-time procedure takes minutes and makes you look years younger by erasing laugh lines, crow’s feet and those annoying lines between your eyebrows.
While women tend to get the maximum use of their Botox injections, smoothing out even the slightest trace of a wrinkle, men tend to go for a more subtle, natural look. They see Botox® as an investment, whether it be to further their careers or to remain as young-looking as their Botox® using wives. Whatever their reasons may be, men are recognizing that Botox® is helping them achieve the appearance they desire without invasive surgery.
When choosing a plastic surgeon to perform your Botox® injections, it is important to find someone who is knowledgeable about the difference in the outcomes between men and women who use Botox®. You will want to find someone who has experience with male patients and who will customize your injections to fit your needs and desires. So, if you haven’t already, say goodbye to the notion that men who worry about the way they look are not masculine or are feminine. In reality, taking care of your appearance will help to eliminate some of the stress and anxiety associated with climbing the corporate ladder.
Don’t hesitate to change the way you look and feel about yourself. Botox® not only fills in those fine lines and wrinkles but helps your skin appear healthier with a natural glow. You can also choose other injections, such as Juvederm or Voluma, to get a mini-facelift without surgery. With any of these procedures, you will be amazed at the instant effect they have on your face and you will love the way you look! You will feel more confident about yourself and your appearance. The new and improved self-confidence you possess will surely make your boss, your colleagues and your significant other take notice!
