Why More Men Are Looking Younger with Botox® InjectionsCosmetic procedures aren’t just for women. In fact, plastic surgeons are seeing more and more men getting Botox®, dermal fillers and other minimally invasive procedures every year. Since the year 2000, plastic surgeons have reported a more than 400% increase in men undergoing Botox® injections, the most popular cosmetic procedure in both men and women. In 2019, almost half a million men achieved a younger-looking appearance with Botox®.
Men and women seek out Botox® for similar reasons, including:
Looking Better OnlineYour online presence is becoming more and more important to your career, dating life and self-esteem. Many men decide to get Botox® because when they look at their Instagram or their dating profile, they notice fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes or on their forehead. These are the exact type of wrinkles that Botox® can get rid of.
Improving Career ProspectsMany men worry about ageism in the workplace, especially if they are looking to change careers or get promoted. By looking younger, they feel they are investing in their future and improving their chances of growing their career.
Compared to a raise or promotion, Botox® is very inexpensive. Botox® results last for 3 or 4 months. But maintenance appointments can help results look great for longer. Repeat Botox® injections cost between $250-$1000 per appointment, depending on the area where you live. This might be a particularly good investment for fields in which appearance is important, such as politics, sales and real estate.
Getting a DateWhether or not they talk about it, men feel pressure to look great, especially when using dating apps when first impressions are often based only on appearance. Many men feel looking younger can help them start a new relationship.
Men don’t need much notice to get Botox® before a first date either. Results are apparent within a week of the procedure, and there is no recovery time. While injections might result in a small amount of redness or swelling, those side effects are typically gone within 48 hours.
Acceptance is IncreasingIt used to be taboo for men to get cosmetic procedures or even admit to wanting to look more attractive or more beautiful. But those taboos are breaking as men learn the value of skin care products, minimally invasive procedures and plastic surgery. More men are talking about their procedures online and don’t mind sharing how they care for themselves.
As men continue to talk online and to each other about the benefits of Botox®, it is likely the procedure will become even more popular and even commonplace among men in their 30s, 40s and beyond.
