Botox/Dysport for Men
Cosmetic procedures are not just for women!
The Brotox trend has gotten very popular in the past few years, and it doesn’t look like it’s going away anytime soon.
Cosmetic procedures such as botox/dysport are not just for women, it has gained prominence in our clinics over the past decade. This procedure is used to treat lines and wrinkles in the face which are caused by expression, and men are wanting these lines and wrinkles to go away just as much as women do! Not only does this treatment stop wrinkles, it can also be used to treat migraines, teeth grinding, and sweating in the underarms, palms, and feet. This procedure takes anywhere from 5-15 minutes only and there is no down time. Dysport is a neuromodulator containing abobotulinumtoxinA and it blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.
How popular is Brotox?
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons report that approximately 453,281 men in the US received Brotox in 2016, and that the number of men getting injections have increased by 337% since 2000.
What is the average age of men receiving Brotox?
The men who come for their Dysport injections are typically from 35-65 years old, and they are often receiving the treatment in their brows, eyes and forehead to remove their “aged” look and frown lines.
Top reasons why men are increasingly receiving these treatments?
- To improve their self-esteem. Men get a boost of confidence that brotox can provide; when you know you look great on the outside, you often feel better on the inside and this can improve your quality of life.
- There is a growing need to stay competitive in the career field. The job market is very ruthless, and many men feel the pressure to not lose out on jobs in which younger men in the work force can come and potentially take away. Many men who want to excel in their career field often take advantage of these procedures to maintain a youthful and energized look that matches how they feel on the inside.
- Men aren’t immune to the appearance of aging. With the shifting of focus, and the changing societal norms, men now wish to reverse the hands of time and they want to look younger and more energized as well.
Things to know about Brotox:
Men have naturally thicker skin and stronger facial muscles and they often need more botox than the average female. This reiterates why Dr. Anna does her Dysport using treatment areas, rather than unitage, because it ends up being a better financial decision to do it that way. Starting a little sooner in life with Dysport can help you look better as you age and we call this preventative brotox. Doing this treatment sooner can help remove wrinkles and lines before they become permanent and deep creases.
