Wrinkles can make a person look older and more tired than they should. As people age, the muscles responsible for facial expressions create permanent creases in the skin. One of the benefits of Botox injections is that they can be used to relax these muscles, resulting in smoother skin and less wrinkles.
People who want a younger, fresher appearance have been turning to Botox for many years. In the past several years, minor cosmetic procedures such as Botox have surged in popularity. Botox is designed to smooth out wrinkles, and recent studies show that these cosmetic procedures are very safe and have a low rate of (minor) side effects.
Unlike traditional facelifts, these procedures can be performed without general anesthesia, and the recovery period is typically only a day. The absence of side effects in the majority of cases makes these treatments an attractive alternative to a surgical facelift, which involves cutting the skin and anesthesia.
Botox: It’s not just for women anymore!
Recent studies also show that the number of men opting for these procedures has tripled over the past few years, so be sure to share this information with the men in your life!
When it comes to the fine lines and wrinkles that inevitably accompany aging, more men than ever are opting for Botox. Interestingly, the number of men choosing Botox treatments has increased over 300% since 2000.
And while women have consistently been held to a higher aging standard than men, it appears that the gap may be diminishing. Studies reveal that the number of American men getting Botox injections – to relax their facial muscles in an effort to minimize lines and wrinkles – has skyrocketed.
Today, male patients are much more open and hands-on about their appearance-related concerns. Male patients who have tried Botox report that they look and feel better, and believe it gives them a competitive edge in business with less stigma linked to cosmetic procedures today than in the past.
