Did you know that men show signs of aging earlier than women as they have stronger muscles around the glabella area and the forehead? But everyone hates the idea of aging: no matter your age or gender! And men look in the mirror every morning too and judge how they look! More men have been taking good care of their skin than ever before and are also getting minimally-invasive treatments with Botox and fillers. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 400,000 U.S. men received “Brotox” (or Botox for men) injections in 2014 and the percentage is only growing at a whooping rate since then.
As we get older, fine lines and wrinkles may begin to appear creating a more mature appearance. Reducing the visible signs of aging is key to putting your best face forward. Men are specifically interested in immediate, long-lasting improvements with no need for the knife and limited downtime for recovery. Here are some guide points specifically for men who are considering brotox or dermal fillers.
Botox is an injectable that weakens facial muscles and reduces fine lines and wrinkles for up to four months. It is injected right under the skin in certain areas, to give the face a rejuvenated look. This blocks nerve signals to targeted muscles in the face, causing them to become temporarily paralyzed. There’s absolutely no down time and full results are seen in 2 weeks.
According to Dr Fallek, Medical Director and Plastic Surgeon, not only are more males getting Botox to stay more competitive in the workplace, look better on social media, and online dating profile pictures, but they turn to Botox to treat migraines. “Men with stressful jobs and face high pressure are more prone to headaches. And guess what, Botox is the solution!”
Dermal Fillers for the Male Face
Dermal fillers are injectable implants approved by the FDA to help smooth skin and wrinkle. Dermal fillers can help minimize these signs of aging, restore youthfulness and proportion.
Men have a different facial anatomy than females.They seek to hold onto their masculinity in their appearance. For example, male cheekbones are lower and flatter than the females. They are also generally hairier and thicker-skinned than women. With strategically placed filler, injectors can fill the lower eyelids and upper cheeks to reduce shadowing yet maintain the sharpness of male facial angles. Balanced injections can help restore proportion and enhance the males features.
Considering Fillers or Botox?
It’s a common misconception that following injectables, your face will look frozen, or fake. Both Brotox and fillers are highly customizable. Injectors can focus on one or more areas of the face to help achieve the results desired. Our best advice is to book a consultation with a licensed injector!
