Women, your wrinkle busting secret is out! More and more men are getting Botox treatments to help get rid of wrinkles. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 385,000 men got Botox injections last year. That’s a 310% increase from a decade ago! No wonder they’ve started calling it “Brotox”.
In Los Angeles we have been seeing a growing number of men receiving Botox for quite some time. At the Z Center for Cosmetic Health, almost 50% of our Botox clients are men.
So why are more men getting Botox now? Well, there are a few reasons. In general, we have been seeing an increase in non-surgical cosmetic treatments as a whole. Just as the number of women who get Botox has increased, so has the number of men. It has also become more acceptable for men to seek cosmetic treatments. More and more men are coming to terms with the fact that it’s ok to get rid of those wrinkles that can prematurely add years to their faces. And, in the right hands, this can be done naturally so that no one will actually know that they had anything done.
Many men in the Los Angeles area are in the entertainment industry where youth is king. Actors, musicians, etc. turn to Botox to keep them looking young and fresh in front of the camera. There has also been a growing number of men in the workforce who get Botox to erase those wrinkles in hopes that it will help them compete for jobs with the younger generation of job seekers.
Our female clients have also been more proactive in getting the men in their lives to come in for Brotox. The results have been great and the men are always happy that they did it.
Botox for men is quick and painless. It can be done during your lunch break. There is little to no downtime associated with the procedure. In our experience, there has been very little risk of swelling and bruising for men who get Botox compared to women.
