For men, there’s a fine line between virility and vanity, but it’s growing wider. While celebrities like Simon Cowell have been using Botox, or Brotox, for years, it seems more and more non-famous men are catching on.
Brotox is the latest trend among men trying to slow down the aging process or regain their youthful appearance. For those of you who don’t know, Botox is a liquid solution injected into facial muscles, which blocks nerve impulses and reduces the muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows, on the forehead, or crow’s feet.
In this new age of male grooming, dermatologists across the country agree that it is becoming more and more accepted for men to have injectable treatments. Botox was up 258% in men from 2000 to 2010, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Last year, there were 13.8 million cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the U.S and 300,000 of those were guys getting Botox. That is a 10% increase from the previous year, and those numbers are expected to grow throughout 2012.
Before going ahead with your Brotox treatments, make sure you choose a cosmetic dermatologist who is experienced with treating male patients. If the correct dosage is used by a qualified medical professional, Botox will not limit your facial expressions. You will still be able to smile, frown, or look surprised. You just won’t have wrinkles and creases, but something tells us you won’t mind. An experienced doctor will also be able to provide you with results that maintain your masculinity.
