BroTox – A Guy’s Guide to BOTOX & Fillers
You’re aging. It happens. And lucky for you, the cosmetic tools to hide it are no longer reserved for women. More men than ever are fixing and rejuvenating their faces with lasers, needles, and chemicals.
In particular, Botox and dermal fillers are gaining popularity amongst men. Botox has even been dubbed with a nickname: Bro-tox. More and more men are putting Botox to use on their own faces. The typical male patient may have noticed an increase in facial lines or wrinkles himself or is increasingly asked if he is tired or angry. Either way he is ready to address the problem but not ready for invasive surgery. Botox provides a minimally invasive, low risk solution. In 2013 1 in every 8 cosmetic procedures in the U.S. were performed on males. And why not? There is certainly no rule that says men cant utilize cosmetic procedures to maintain a youthful appearance and continue to feel good about their self image as they age, just like women do. The procedures are just as effective and safe on males as they are on females.
Botox or Dysport
Injectable wrinkle relaxers like Botox or Dysport are super-popular for men because they provide real results and you don’t have to take any time off work. A brief, free injectable consultation with Dr. Ladie Arana-Domondon will help you better understand what to expect. Furrowed brows, wrinkled foreheads and crow’s feet can all be corrected in about ten minutes. Removing the lines in these areas can go a long way toward a younger and more relaxed look at work. We offer Botox at $10.00/ unit ( min of 25 U) to new clients.
Botox has many other medical uses besides wrinkle-reduction. One of the most helpful is for controlling Hyperhidrosis, a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. It is FDA-approved for the treatment primary axillary hyperhidrosis. Small doses are injected into the underarm areas to temporarily block the nerves that stimulate sweating. It lasts from 7 to 9 months.
Dermal fillers like Voluma ,Juvederm , Restylane, Radiesse and Sculptra aesthetics are becoming as popular as Botox for men because of the areas that can be treated with little or no recovery time. Men seem to get especially good results from the contouring under the eyes with fillers because they often are troubled with more pronounced hollows under the eyes. Because hyaluronic acid fillers are so easy to mold, they are used for creases in the ears, chin area and acne scars. The fold from the nose to the side of the mouth (nasolabial fold) can be filled in with Juvederm as well as the lines on the frown area. This is most effective when used in conjunction with Botox to eliminate the movements that cause these lines.
It’s not just women that see the signs of aging in their faces and don’t like it. Men, while they might not be as open about it, see the wrinkles and folds getting more prominent in their own faces as they age, too. Perhaps it’s a little tougher for males to decide they want to do something as un-macho as getting Botox or dermal fillers, but more and more American men are making that choice.
