Over years of facial expressions (smiling, furrowing brows or frowning) and facial muscle contraction, lines and wrinkles begin to develop. These lines can give people an aged, tired or worn appearance even if they aren’t old or tired!
Men, too, experience these lines…and have been doing something about it with Botox treatments. Botox for men, appropriately coined “Brotox” has been gaining popularity over recent years, with more men than ever seeing the benefits of this safe and effective antiaging treatment.
Read on for more.
Adding Botox to your self-improvement regimen
Botox is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons says that the number of men receiving Botox has jumped well over 300 percent since 2000.
And it makes sense. Once thought of as a treatment predominantly geared toward the interest of women, men are realizing the anti-aging effects of Botox…and liking it. After all, no amount of lifting weights or time spent in the gym will make those wrinkles go away!
Through a short appointment and a few strategic injections, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and the number elevens (the vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows) can be smoothed and softened with no downtime or evidence of having been treated.
Though not a surgical treatment, it’s important to choose an injector who is highly qualified so as not to look “frozen” but rather, wrinkles looking softened.
More than the face
Much like Botox gaining popularity amongst men, so have other cosmetic treatments. Procedures like male breast reduction and tummy tucks are also being received by more and more men. Dr. Andrew Lofman specializes in male breast reductions and tummy tucks in Michigan.
Many men struggle with breasts that are larger and fattier than they’d like (also known as Gynecomastia), making them self-conscious of lacking a masculine appearance. A male breast reduction reduces the fat and fatty tissue in the breast area for a tighter, more toned appearance.
Likewise, a toned, flat stomach is a body characteristic that many men strive to achieve. But sometimes, no amount of diet or exercise can help to the level you’re looking for.
Extra flab and skin in the stomach area can be due to a variety of issues, including genetics and weight fluctuations. As such, men are turning toward a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, to reduce fat and tighten abdominal skin and muscles to reveal a trimmer, more toned waistline and more defined appearance.
