Botox for Men: the ‘Bro-Tox’ has arrived

The recent FT.com article about the growing popularity of Botox amongst men has pinpointed work stresses and divorce as the main incentives for treatment. Botox can deliver amazing results for men as well as women both in terms of physical appearance and self-esteem, but you do need to ensure you find a practitioner that understands the subtle differences between signs of ageing in the male and female face.

“Men have flatter faces, so although they ask for injections for higher cheekbones I won’t do it because they will look feminised. Men want to be seen as on top of their game and not appear angry or tense with a furrowed brow. With correctly injected Botox and fillers, they look, feel and perform at work better.” Susan Mayou, consultant dermatologist at Cadogan Cosmetics.

Some thoughts for consideration whilst contemplating the Bro-Tox:

-Face Shape – Men have flatter faces that women, plumping unnatural areas of the face will produce unnatural looking results.

-Eyebrows – Men don’t have arched eyebrows like women, so injections beneath the brow can add femininity.

-Hair – A receding hairline can have an impact on the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and will need to be taken into account.

-Lips – Men have naturally thinner lips that women, Botox can be used to reduce frown lines, but again caution is needed.

Botox can deliver great results for men, however an initial consultation and in-depth discussion about results is imperative. To talk to a member of our team about fillers, please contact us today.
