Women aren’t the only ones concerned about their appearance. We are frequently asked if men also commonly get Botox. The answer is YES! Men are a rapidly growing demographic of Botox users and why the term “Brotox” has gained popularity.
Pressured to look a certain way and to feel better about themselves, men are turning to Botox to enhance their appearance. Some men are getting Botox to boost their career opportunities, to improve their dating life, or simply for boosting self-esteem. It’s easy to see why many men are turning to this cosmetic procedure.
We already know that Botox can help treat a wide range of medical problems. It also comes with many benefits for men who are beginning to notice the first signs of aging.
These benefits include:
- Managing adult acne
- Boosting self-esteem
- Obliterating fine lines and wrinkles, as well as preventing new wrinkles from forming
The most common areas for men getting Botox are the forehead, 11’s (area between brows), and crow’s feet (lines around the eyes). The effect is reduced muscle activity and relaxed muscles. The procedure has also been found to help with headaches and migraines. Results last between 3-4 months.
Men are also getting Botox for hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is the clinical term for severe underarm sweating. This condition is very common in men and research has shown that using Botox to manage hyperhidrosis is promising. The number of Botox units used, injection site, and frequency of treatment varies with each patient. Results can last 6 months or longer.
In conclusion, the number of men getting Botox has been surging. Men care about their physical appearance as well and should never be ashamed about wanting to look and feel their best!
