Why​ ​Men​ ​Are​ ​Becoming​ ​More​ ​Comfortable​ ​with​ ​Botox

According​ ​to​ ​a​ ​recently​ ​released​ ​study​ ​from​ ​the​​ ​​American​ ​Society​ ​for​ ​Aesthetic​ ​Plastic​ ​Surgery​, the​ ​number​ ​of​ ​men​ ​getting​ ​Botox​ ​injections​ ​totaled​ ​453,281​ ​in​ ​2016,​ ​an​ ​increase​ ​of​ ​337​ ​percent since​ ​2000.

Known​ ​colloquially​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Internet​ ​blogosphere​ ​as​ ​“​Brotox​”,​ ​Botox​ ​injections​ ​for​ ​men​ ​are becoming​ ​increasingly​ ​more​ ​acceptable​ ​to​ ​talk​ ​about,​ ​which​ ​has​ ​added​ ​to​ ​men’s​ ​level​ ​of​ ​comfort with​ ​these​ ​procedures.​ ​In​ ​the​ ​past​ ​couple​ ​of​ ​years,​ ​trusted​ ​publications​ ​like​​ ​​Men’s​ ​Fitness​Forbes​,​​ ​​The​ ​Huffington​ ​Post​,​​ ​​GQ​,​ ​and​ ​others​ ​have​ ​covered​ ​the​ ​procedure​ ​in​ ​favorable,​ ​or​ ​at least​ ​neutral,​ ​terms​ ​as​ ​a​ ​perfectly​ ​viable​ ​option​ ​for​ ​men​ ​looking​ ​for​ ​a​ ​younger​ ​appearance.

For​ ​men​ ​who​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​look​ ​younger​ ​without​ ​undergoing​ ​cosmetic​ ​surgery,​ ​a​ ​Botox​ ​treatment can​ ​be​ ​an​ ​attractive​ ​solution.​ ​Botox​ ​can​ ​smooth​ ​out​ ​wrinkles​ ​and​ ​lines​ ​on​ ​the​ ​face​ ​by temporarily​ ​paralyzing​ ​the​ ​muscles​ ​that​ ​produce​ ​them.​ ​Three​ ​to​ ​five​ ​days​ ​after​ ​treatment, “crow’s​ ​feet”​ ​around​ ​the​ ​eyes,​ ​frown​ ​lines,​ ​and​ ​other​ ​deep​ ​creases​ ​on​ ​the​ ​forehead​ ​begin​ ​to fade​ ​or​ ​disappear.

Botox​ ​is​ ​a​ ​great​ ​option​ ​for​ ​many​ ​men​ ​because​ ​it​ ​costs​ ​less​ ​than​ ​surgery​ ​and​ ​requires​ ​no downtime.​ ​Although​ ​the​ ​results​ ​of​ ​Botox​ ​injections​ ​are​ ​not​ ​permanent,​ ​men​ ​can​ ​expect​ ​to​ ​retain a​ ​younger​ ​appearance​ ​for​ ​roughly​ ​four​ ​months​ ​following​ ​treatment.

Many​ ​doctors​​ ​​are​ ​hearing​​ ​from​ ​men​ ​who​ ​want​ ​Botox​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​look​ ​younger​ ​and​ ​remain​ ​more competitive​ ​in​ ​the​ ​workplace.​ ​Cosmetic​ ​procedures​ ​are​ ​also​ ​becoming​ ​more​ ​accepted​ ​among men​ ​in​ ​general,​ ​so​ ​Botox​ ​doesn’t​ ​carry​ ​the​ ​stigma​ ​it​ ​may​ ​once​ ​have​ ​had​ ​among​ ​men.​ ​In​ ​general men​ ​are​ ​getting​ ​more​ ​comfortable​ ​with​ ​caring​ ​about​ ​their​ ​appearance​ ​and​ ​taking​ ​some​ ​steps​ ​to look​ ​and​ ​feel​ ​younger.

Botox​ ​for​ ​Excessive​ ​Sweating

Botox​ ​is​ ​usually​ ​thought​ ​of​ ​as​ ​a​ ​procedure​ ​used​ ​for​ ​facial​ ​rejuvenation,​ ​but​ ​another​ ​important function​ ​is​ ​its​ ​use​ ​for​​ ​​treating​ ​excessive​ ​sweating​,​ ​also​ ​known​ ​as​ ​hyperhidrosis.​ ​When​ ​injected into​ ​problem​ ​areas​ ​like​ ​the​ ​armpits,​ ​Botox​ ​blocks​ ​stimulation​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sweat​ ​glands,​ ​resulting​ ​in​ ​a potentially​ ​dramatic​ ​reduction​ ​in​ ​the​ ​amount​ ​of​ ​sweat​ ​produced.

Men​ ​who​ ​suffer​ ​from​ ​excessive​ ​sweating​ ​live​ ​with​ ​constant​ ​fear​ ​of​ ​embarrassing​ ​odor​ ​and clothing​ ​stains.​ ​They’re​ ​often​ ​caught​ ​in​ ​a​ ​cycle​ ​of​ ​feeling​ ​nervous​ ​because​ ​of​ ​their​ ​excessive sweating,​ ​which​ ​causes​ ​them​ ​to​ ​sweat​ ​even​ ​more.​ ​Botox​ ​injections​ ​are​ ​among​ ​the​ ​most effective​ ​non-surgical​ ​treatments​ ​for​ ​hyperhidrosis.

If​ ​you’re​ ​a​ ​man​ ​and​ ​you’re​ ​seeing​ ​more​ ​of​ ​your​ ​peers​ ​take​ ​advantage​ ​of​ ​Botox​ ​to​ ​help​ ​alleviate wrinkles​ ​and​ ​look​ ​younger,​ ​you​ ​owe​ ​it​ ​to​ ​yourself​ ​to​ ​find​ ​out​ ​what​ ​all​ ​the​ ​fuss​ ​is​ ​about.​​ ​​Get​ ​in touch​ ​with​​ ​us​ ​to​ ​set​ ​up​ ​a​ ​consultation!
