Botox For Men’s Forehead, Crow’s Feet & Glabella
Men are seeking the same cosmetic procedures as women, but the goals of men and women are slightly different when it comes to Botox
Fine lines and wrinkles are the first signs of aging and the FDA approved Botox (Botulinum toxin type A) is one of the oldest cosmetic treatments available for wrinkles. Men are increasingly becoming more focused on their appearance. This once untapped market is growing exponentially as the use of social media rises with increasing numbers of online profiles.
Men are seeking the same cosmetic procedures as women, but the goals of men and women are slightly different when it comes to Botox. Men want to be very discreet about the procedure and are mostly interested in noninvasive treatments and injectables such as Botox for the glabella (the space just above and between the eyebrows) and crow’s feet lines and cosmetic injection of wrinkles with dermal fillers such as Juvederm.
Aesthetic procedures such as Botox can benefit a man in the workplace. Men can combat ageism by doing minimal invasive aesthetic procedures that will give them the advantage of staying competitive for additional training and promotion within the workplace. The use of aesthetic procedures such as Botox for anti-aging and treating the glabella and crow’s feet lines among men has risen over the years. The media have dubbed this as ‘Brotox’. More and more men are looking for noninvasive cosmetic treatments to enhance their appearance and also give them an edge amongst their younger counterparts. The old taboo of the use of Botox being a feminine treatment has long flown out the window as the number of men doing Botox treatment rises.
Botox for men gains in popularity
Men’s grooming was recently an untapped market. Today there has been more focus on men’s grooming which not only includes clothing, skin care products designed specifically for men but also cosmetic issues that are most important to men. Male patients are most concerned with their eleven lines (glabella), double chin, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, razor bumps and abdomen. Men aren’t afraid of doing cosmetic procedures. They are most interested in “lunch time” procedures that are quick with no downtime. Facial wrinkles, frown lines and forehead wrinkles are popular Botox cosmetic procedures. Generally men prefer to avoid plastic surgery because of the length of downtime involved.

Do male patients require different levels of Botox?
Men require more Botox at the injection site than women as they have stronger facial muscles and also, they metabolize the product much faster than women. The typical male should have Botox injections every three to four months to prevent the full effects of previous Botox treatments from wearing off completely. The effects of Botox treatment for the glabella area also known as the “eleven lines” and crow’s feet are different for men. Men aren’t necessarily trying to look younger but mainly they do Botox as it helps them to put their best face forward by giving them a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.
