As most of us are aware, Botox® is the most widely used and highly-popular non-surgical, anti-wrinkle treatment around and millions of British women swear by their twice annual visit to Dr Dan Dhunna to receive this elixir of youth, injected in tiny quantities and lasting for up to 6 months at a time. However, did you know that the popularity of Botox® for men is on the rise, with facial surgeons reporting a 70 percent increase in the demand from men, to have this treatment in recent years. But why is Botox® becoming more popular for male patients?
Simply put, Botox® works. It’s clinically-proven and a serious contender when it comes to erasing unwanted expression lines, albeit temporarily. Many men don’t want to use fancy creams and lotions, they simply want something that is scientifically proven, FDA-approved and more ‘technical’ in its efficacy and application. Botox® can reduce lines and wrinkles in those ‘high-activity’ areas of the face, such as the forehead, around the eyes and even the neck, jawline and mouth. Dr Dan Dhunna is noticing more and more men are flocking to his clinic, in order to receive a treatment that doesn’t rely on silly marketing or ‘smoke and mirrors’ advertising. Botox® is a prescribed drug and is effective, simple to administer (by a medical pro) and has the desired effect, without looking overdone, or permanently surprised.
In the past, it might have been considered ‘un-masculine’ for a heterosexual, middle-aged man to undergo a Botox® treatment and the theory that men would simply grow old ‘gracefully’ was what was expected. Nowadays, it’s not only homosexual males who want to keep their skin looking youthful and healthy. Times are changing rapidly and with more women expecting their other halves to take better care of their skin, guys are looking to more effective methods, such as Botox®. After all, why should only the women in the relationship look fantastic?
An increase in the numbers of divorces and those starting new relationships, well in to their 40s and 50s could also explain the rise in desire to stay more youthful looking and healthy. In this new, competitive world of mature dating, you have got to look your best, right? Botox® can temporarily eradicate those tell-tale lines such as crow’s feet, Glabellar lines, forehead lines and mouth lines, for a fresher, natural appearance.
Male celebrities are also speaking more openly about having Botox® to keep themselves looking sharp and TV actors, iconic male models and sportsmen who openly admit to having Botox® and other injectable treatments, help dispel the myth that guys shouldn’t be partaking in non-surgical procedures to help them to look and feel good!
The convenience of Botox® also has its allure. Most men don’t want to spend hours having facials or lengthy facial treatments and the average Botox® procedure takes around 10 minutes. There is no clinical downtime and no need for rest or recovery, which means a guy can have a Botox® treatment in his lunch hour and return to work without anyone noticing he has had anything done!
At Dr Dan’s clinics in London and the Midlands, we applaud the fact that men are now stepping forward to undergo simple and effective non-surgical treatments and we also appreciate that for some men, it might still be something that they wish to keep under wraps. Therefore we offer a highly-discreet service in calm and relaxing surroundings, to ensure that all our patients feel confident and comfortable throughout their Botox® treatment. Aftercare advice is free and we will ask that you attend an initial consultation, prior to your Botox® treatment, to discuss your concerns and check your medical history, so you can rest assured that the procedure will be both safe and effective to undergo, should you decide that it’s the solution for your requirements.
