Botox Use Increase for Men

Both men and women desire to maintain a youthful look and age gracefully.  Until recently, women have been more vocal and proactive with their cosmetic treatments to curb unwanted signs of facial aging. However, men who are concerned with the effects of aging including wrinkles and age lines are now seeking treatments to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox® injections are the number one minimally-invasive procedure for both men and women. Although women dominate the number of cosmetic procedures performed, the number of men receiving Botox® is significantly increasing. From 2000 to 2010, there was a 258 percent increase in the number of men seeking Botox® injections.  You may have heard the term “brotox” to describe the use of Botox® by men.

Botox® and Dysport® are purified forms of the toxin botulinum that work by causing the wrinkle-producing facial muscles between the eyes and along the brow to relax.  As the muscles relax, the appearance of wrinkles and furrows around the eyes and forehead are smoothed creating a softer, refreshed appearance.  Common complaints among men who seek Botox® include a furrowed brow and wrinkles around the forehead. Botox® and Dysport® can help address these issues to create a natural, fresh look.
