03 Jan Why Are More and More Men Getting Brotox?
Gone are the days of Botox® being just for women! In fact, Botox has actually been the top non-surgical procedure for men in the United States. I, Jen Pilotte, am one of the top Botox and filler injectors in Dallas, and I am going to share a little bit about my special “Brotox” treatment 😁.
Benefits Of Botox For A Man
Botox, an FDA-approved injectable, is made to treat an array of medical conditions. Created with a neurotoxin made by Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. Botox is most commonly used to treat wrinkles and deep creases. In addition to that, Botox is actually highly effective at combating hyperhidrosis (extreme sweating), acne, and eyelid twitching. This powerful substance is given in small doses, and is able to paralyze muscle contractions, allowing the sking above the muscle to relax and appear smoother.
Here are a few of the top benefits of the Brotox treatment for men:
Less Botox Is Needed: Usually, men need much less Botox than women do (not fair, am I right, ladies?). Most men actually look better as they age; more refined. In fact, you may be surprised to hear that most men’s desirability actually peaks at the age of 50! Don’t get me wrong. This is obviously assuming that this man has taken care of himself throughout his lifetime through good diet and a quality skincare regimen. But forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet all should be addressed early to avoid severe signs of aging, but it is most definitely okay to still have some natural looking wrinkles. We want to minimize the wrinkles and keep them from progressing, NOT eliminate them entirely. That’s usually not a cute look. Not only is this easier on your wallet, but it also means that your results will look much more subtle. You don’t have to worry about walking into work the next day and getting those annoying questions and comments about why your forehead is so smooth.
Social Proof: Whether we like to admit it or not, we tend to judge very heavily on appearance. While your character is what truly matters, you still need to feel confident in your day-to-day activities. Whether you’ve got a first date, job interview, or just a night on the town, you should feel assertive and sure of yourself! 😎 Studies have shown that “attractive” looking men are actually employed faster, promoted sooner and even earn up to 3 to 4% more than their more average looking colleagues. Genetics play a big role in this, but anti-aging treatments and fillers to define bone structure can certainly help.
Also, let’s be honest. Social media can be a ‘make it or break it’, for first impressions. Ever match with someone on a dating app, and then done a bit of stalking on their social media, 🧐 only to realize that they look way older in most of their Instagram pictures 😅? Instead of hiding behind “throwback” photos from 5+ years ago, you can feel confident snapping some selfies and keeping your social profiles up-to-date with a little Brotox here and there.
Eliminates Adult Acne: Believe it or not, quite a few adult men still struggle with those annoying pimples. Botox is actually able to minimize oil production where it is injected, thus reducing most flare ups. While Botox shouldn’t be your first option for treating acne, it definitely is a great way to kill two birds with one stone if you’ve been having frequent breakouts.
Debunking The Stigmas
Botox Is Feminine: Alpha males, especially, seem to be shamed whenever they spend too much time in the mirror, clothes shopping, or taking care of their appearance. However, the research has clearly shown that neglecting your appearance can run over into both your professional and dating life. You should not feel bad for taking charge of your appearance!
Botox Will “Freeze” My Face: I’m sure by now you have seen the movie, CHRISTMAS WITH THE KRANKS… when Tim Allen’s character gets Brotox for the first time to prepare for a holiday vacation, and his face freezes beyond recognition 🤣. MYTH! The only time this ever would happen is if someone gets an excessive amount of treatments, or they were administered the treatments by an EXTREMELY inexperienced provider. As one of Dallas’s top Botox and Filler injectors, I am always careful to evaluate my patients and give them a healthy amount of treatments. As mentioned before, men usually don’t need an outrageous amount of Botox in order to maintain natural-looking results.
Botox Is Dangerous: While the main ingredient in Botox is a botulinum toxin protein, there’s no need to worry! This toxin is not meant to be swallowed. When injected by a trained professional in extremely small doses, it is perfectly safe!
