The “Brotox” Trend: Why More Men are Having Botox

BrotoxAlthough women have long been using cosmetic treatments to turn back the clock on their appearance, men are adding to this number in droves. In particular, the number of men having Botox injections in order to smooth out their fine lines and wrinkles has exploded, with a 310 percent increase from the past decade. Botox is so commonplace for male clientele that the term “Brotox” has been coined to describe the growing trend of non-surgical procedures for men. Dr. Samuel Pearl of the Pearl-Ereso Plastic Surgery Center explains the reasons why this this anti-aging cosmetic treatment has been on men’s radar.

To Get the Edge at Work

The unstable job market, especially since 2008, has increased many people’s level of anxiety when competing for jobs — or even keeping their current job. And according to a recent CNN report, nearly two-thirds of unemployed workers in recent years are 55 or older and have experienced difficulty when competing for jobs with younger contenders. This age group, and even younger men in their 30s and 40s, are looking for any edge they can find in the job market, and are finding that looking younger and more alert plays a significant role in their candidacy.

To Look as Young as They Feel

Many men  use Botox to match their appearance to how young they feel inside.  And with the increasing demands on men to keep up with their appearance, men who care for themselves with regular exercise and healthy diet habits often want a younger-looking face with less lines and creases to match their fit physique.

To Get Rid of Wrinkles on Their Lunch Hour

It is undeniable how quick and easy a Botox treatment is — you can get rid of forehead wrinkles, the “11” lines between your brows and smile lines in less than 20 minutes! Because the treatment is so fast and there’s no downtime or recovery afterward, men can have it on their lunch break from work. And since the effects of Botox are natural-looking, men look younger and less tired, without anyone being able to tell they had work done.
