Statistics from leading plastic surgery organizations like the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that more men than ever are discovering the benefits of anti-aging treatment with Botox. The cosmetic injectable has attracted the attention of a wide demographic of men — tired fathers and busy bosses alike. Even famous record executives like Simon Cowell have admitted to undergoing treatment with Botox (he famously told the U.K.’s Glamour magazine, “To me, Botox is no more unusual than toothpaste.”)
Here, the oculoplastic surgeons at Los Angeles area Eyesthetica explain some of the reasons why Botox is surging in popularity among men.
Minimizes the Appearance of Stress
Stress from work or family responsibilities can cause noticeable wrinkles to appear around the eye area. Repeated facial expressions like frowning and furrowing the brows lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that contract when making these facial expressions; as a result, the overlying wrinkle becomes less pronounced and smoother in appearance. Stressed-out fathers or business executives tend to look much more relaxed and rested after Botox injections.
Creates a More Youthful Facial Appearance
Looks matter to many men, especially those that want to succeed in the workplace. With the younger generation climbing up the ranks quickly, many older men want to project an energetic and virile appearance to stay competitive. Botox minimizes the signs of aging and stress for a more confident and capable look.
No Evidence of Treatment
Botox minimizes signs of stress, fatigue, and age without leaving any telltale signs of treatment. Our oculoplastic surgeons hear from countless men that want an anti-aging solution that does not require incisions that could lead to noticeable scarring. Botox fits the bill and delivers results without any signs of surgery.
Treatment Is Quick and Convenient
Botox treatment usually takes an hour or less to administer. And, it does not require any recovery downtime. There are very few side effects, and serious bruising and swelling are rare. A treatment session can be conveniently scheduled on a lunch break from work or between other normal activities.
