Are You in Need of Some Brotox? Botox for Men

Botox for Men in San FranciscoWe have an important announcement for men everywhere: Botox isn’t just for women. If you’ve been avoiding Botox because you don’t want to undergo a “womanly” cosmetic procedure, avoid Botox no more. Botox is beloved by men. For many it is their secret weapon to looking younger and increasing self-confidence. Give us a call and give Botox a try. Men love it!

If you’re still unsure about men and Botox, let’s take a quick look at some of the facts. Last year (2013) 385,358 Botox treatments were performed on male patients, a surprising 6% of all Botox performed. Since 2000 the number of men turning to Botox is up more than 300%. Those in the business jokingly call it Brotox. Men are even using Botox as a career tool to give them an aesthetic edge in an increasingly competitive job market. Botox is tried and tested on both male and female patients. In fact, in clinical trials of frown lines, 17.5% of those tested were male.

What is Botox?

While most of us are familiar with Botox, or at the very least the jokes made about the procedure on TV, very few actually understand how this treatment works and its many benefits, especially men who may not talk openly about the treatment with their friends. Our faces contain a surprising number of muscles. Some of these we knowingly control (when we smile for example) while others contract on their own (squinting in the sun). Each day our facial muscles make thousands of movements. These muscle movements (both voluntary and involuntary) can lead to wrinkles.

Botox helps these muscles to relax, smoothing common facial wrinkles. It is administered by targeted injections (placed in precise locations to relax specific muscles).Don’t worry about looking fake or frozen. When properly administered Botox produces natural looking results. The procedure takes about 30 minutes start to finish and requires no recovery period. Come in, get injections, and get back to work. If you don’t want anyone to know, we won’t tell. Your new good looks can be our little secret.

Does Botox Work?

Botox is highly effective, both in men and women. In one study of patients with moderate to severe frown lines, 80% were determined to have significant improvement 30 days after treatment. Botox can treat wrinkling across the face including crow’s feet, frown lines, lines between the eyebrows, and more. Check out these results real men experienced when they received Botox injections.
