Botox for men? Most men consider taking care of their body an anti-aging no-brainer—but do they know they can also prevent facial aging with Botox injections? According to a study in Cosmetic Dermatology, the number of men in America getting Botox has skyrocketed 258 percent over the past decade. In 2016, there was a totaled 453, 281 men getting Botox injections—more than ever before.
“In the last few years, there has been a surge of men seeking minimally invasive facial rejuvenation,” Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Neavin tells PEOPLE Magazine. “More than ever, men are seeking beauty maintenance in the form of fillers and Botox because when they are properly administered, they work so well to create natural looking results with zero ‘evidence’ or downtime.”
The goal for most men isn’t to look younger, but to look more well-rested, healthy and fit. The common targets for their injections are their crow’s feet and frown lines.
The job market is consistently changing and becoming more and more competitive. For a long time, studies have shown that physical appearance is linked to career success. Men are choosing to use Botox procedures and other injectables to keep up their appearances and maintain their competitiveness in the workplace.
Botox offers a quick, easy and relatively painless outpatient treatment for those going through the process. The actual treatment takes up to 10 minutes with minor “mosquito bite-like” swelling that goes down in 10-15 minutes.
