Women have long been the target market for anti-aging products, treatments, and therapies, but this trend is gradually shifting. In the past 10 years, more and more men are getting Botox injections to reduce lines and wrinkles. With a 258 percent increase in the number of men getting Botox in the past decade, there’s no question that ‘brotox’ is a trend to watch.
There are several excellent benefits of Botox for men -- also referred to as ‘brotox’...
Many men are considering Botox as a method to treat skin issues and reverse the look of aging caused by sun damage. Since Botox rejuvenates the appearance of the skin, smoothing and clearing the texture, injections offer a quick, simple solution to the effects of damage and aging on the skin.
According to a study published on Cosmetic Dermatology, “The demand for topical products capable of preventing aging or delivering cosmetic improvement to the male skin is growing… Cosmeceutical ingredients capable of reversing sun-induced alteration are of particular benefit for men. Adapting cosmetic treatment to male grooming routines increases compliance. Shaving presents an opportunity to deliver cosmeceuticals for men.”
Regardless of whether you’re male or female, when you look good, you have more confidence. The combination of looking good and the added confidence associated with it can give men a competitive edge in two very important areas: the job market and dating.
"Male patients who have tried Botox look better, feel better, and believe it gives them a competitive edge. There's also less of a stigma associated with cosmetic procedures nowadays," said Whitney Bowe, MD, a lead author in the Cosmetic Dermatology study and the assistant medical director for cosmetic and laser services at Advanced Dermatology P.
