Did you know that Botox is gaining popularity for both women and men? Over the past few years, “Botox” has become more mainstream with men, aged 40 to 50.
In fact, according to Men’s Journal, “Chances are, you know a guy who’s had Botox. Since 2000, the number of men undergoing the procedure has surged by more than 200 percent, with some 385,000 procedures in 2013, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.”
Is Botox different for Men and Women?
Botox Cosmetic is performs the same when injected into men and women. However, there are a few notable differences between Brotox and Botox. The most common area that men are looking to have treated is the squinting lines to the sides of the eyes, commonly called crow’s feet. The most common area for women is the “11’s” or glabella, which is the area between the eyebrows with vertical wrinkles. Both men and women are seeking treatment for the horizontal forehead lines.
The other main difference is the size of facial muscles for men and women. Because the muscles in men’s faces cover a larger area, more Botox might be required to soften wrinkles.
What age is a good time for Men to start getting Botox?
Preventative Botox is becoming more popular for both men and women. Using Botox to soften dynamic wrinkles with movement decreases stress on the skin and prevents the development of static wrinkles that you can see even at rest. Using Botox in your 20s for both men and women could help decrease the likelihood that you will develop wrinkles later in life.
