Non-invasive treatments for men such as ‘Brotox’ so called Botox for men or dermal fillers are an excellent option for guys who, whilst they are aware of their looks, are certainly not obsessed by them.
Every guy knows this one honest truth: Feeling that you’re getting old sucks, no matter what your age. We all look in the mirror every morning and judge ourselves by how we look. And that’s without the looks we get from our partners, colleagues or peer group down the gym.
For centuries, women have been held to a far higher standard when it comes to ageing so it’s a modern, socially acceptable norm that many of them will willingly go under the needle to reset nature’s clock. Men, by contrast, have long worn their wrinkles and sun damage as a badge of endurance, experience, hard work, and sacrifice.
Robert Redford is a case in point. When he walks down the red carpet in Hollywood, people still swoon, but I wonder are they blinded by memories of the past? Does he really look more handsome with the rugged lines and the sun damaged skin?
Of course men are not immune from the effect of ageing with their muscles relaxing, skin losing its natural plumpness and wrinkles appearing across their foreheads and around their eyes, but neither do they need to live with it with a great range of treatments for men available nowadays. According to figures released by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, there were over 50,000 cosmetic surgery procedures in the UK last year, up a huge 13% on the previous year. Of those, 4,164 procedures were undertaken on men. This is almost twice the number of men who had cosmetic surgery a decade ago, and representing about 9% of the total. What is most interesting however, is the fact that physical surgery reduced slightly as more and more men opt for the less invasive option of Botox® and dermal fillers.
The truth is Brotox injections will make you look younger, which means you will feel less old. Most men, although they though loathe to admit it, are just as vain as their female counterparts. The younger ones will have their eyebrows tamed, slave over a six-pack in the gym or cover themselves in pretty tattoos of roses and birds. The older ones? They’ll drop three figures treating premature hair loss and balding and hit the gym every morning to keep their gut in check. But when it comes to the wrinkles on their face being a “Sissy” is still more shameful than getting a brow wax. It’s time for men to get over it.
Men also feel pressured to look youthful in the highly competitive job market. Furrowed brows and crows feet don’t represent experience the way they used to, so being able to come across seasoned as well as youthful is often the ticket to nailing your next big role – especially when you find yourself up against the Millennial who’s shamelessly leveraging age against you.
Oh Boy! – then there’s social media. Like it or not, we are now all judged for our online personas whether it’s LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, looking old, sour, and uninspiring online is a surefire kiss of social media death.
When it comes to getting yourself back into the dating market, it’s even more brutal. When a two-second swipe of approval on Tinder is based solely on how you look on an iPhone, you’d better look your best.
So, having established that there are options should you wish to smooth out wrinkles or refresh your face, the first thing to do is to establish which treatment is right for you, and book a free consultation.
‘Brotox’, anti wrinkle treatments for men
If we do decide together that Brotox anti wrinkle treatment is right for you, Botox® is injected into the areas to be treated using a very fine needle. the procedure itself takes no more than 30 minutes and there’s barely any discomfort. Because there is no anaesthetic required you can leave immediately after the procedure and get on with your normal routine.
Because Botox® treatment slowly relaxes the muscles in your face to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles, it can take a few days for you to see the final results. This means you wont be walking around looking like someone else – you will simply look like you, but on your best day. The effects can last from 4 to 6 months.
Dermal filler treatments for men
Whilst anti wrinkle treatments like Botox® are generally for fine lines and wrinkles in the upper facial areas, dermal fillers are typically used around the nose, and mouth. Dermal fillers are also more suited to treating deeper lines from the nose to the mouth and mouth to chin. Dermal fillers are also used to add volume back to lips, often lost through smoking or just from the inevitable signs of age.
Dermal fillers are injected in small controlled doses just under the surface of skin. This literally fills out the sunken areas and lines to give a smoother, firmer and generally younger appearance. Results last from 6 to 24 months.
