In 2002, Allergan introduced us to the world of neurotoxins for cosmetic purposes by gaining FDA approval for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (the vertical “frown lines” between the brows). Over the last 15 years, BOTOX® Cosmetic has become a well-known product for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face such as the forehead, crow’s feet, bunny lines, gummy smiles, jawlines, and chins! This anti-aging treatment has primarily been geared toward women but is steadily gaining popularity amongst the male population as well.
The stigma against men being concerned with their aging appearance is rapidly diminishing as more men are opting for treatment! Over the last five years, there has been an 84 percent increase in men’s procedures with approximately one in 10 BOTOX® Cosmetic patients being male. It is unfair to think that women are the only gender that is concerned with their appearance. Aging is not strictly a female problem, as many men will confirm. The muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear in women do the same to men.
Treatments are tailored to each person’s specific concerns and will create a gradual improvement over the following weeks’ post-treatment. Results can take up to two weeks to be fully seen but usually appear by one week. The effects last for a duration of three to four months on average. A thorough consultation with a provider who is experienced in men’s procedures is recommended. With Brotox on the rise, women, as well as men, can challenge the signs of aging by keeping themselves wrinkle free!
