In today’s society – contrary to much opinion – women aren’t the only ones seeking cosmetic treatment to fight signs of aging. The number of men seeking cosmetic procedures has been increasing over the years – in the last 15 years, the number has more than doubled. Among these procedures, one of the most common is Botox. It is a simple, non-invasive procedure that is often admired due to its simplicity and quick recovery time.
The appearance of youth is something coveted by both men and women, and that youthfulness can be achieved through Botox injections. It can give men a higher level of confidence and help them look their best through the years to come.
At The John Bull Center for Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Medispa — located in Naperville, IL – we offer Botox injections to both men and women. Often referred to as a lunchtime fix, Botox injections can be administered quickly, and you can immediately return to your daily routine following treatment. Contact Dr. Bull today to see if Botox is right for you.
For many men, Botox and the aging it repairs (though temporary) gives them a competitive edge, both personally and professionally. As men age in the workforce, they may find themselves up against younger men. A little cosmetic help can make a big difference, especially when it comes to landing a new job in an unsteady economy. A man may have years of professional experience, but it’s better to let that show up in his resume and not in his face. Botox injections that relax those pesky facial lines without making it look like you’ve “had work done” are being considered an advantage for professional men.
Competition on a more personal level matters too, since the workplace isn’t the only area where looks can offer an edge. Men want to look younger and more desirable just as much as women do. If a 10-minute visit to a doctor’s office can turn back a little time and give a man’s confidence a bump, many men are figuring, why not?
Botox injections are simple to administer in the privacy of a cosmetic surgeon’s office, making them an easy fit into even a busy weekday schedule. There are no hospital visits, hospital stays or pre- or post-operative time required. Results show up within days and are long-lasting, averaging four to six months. Consider it all — no special preparation, no recovery time, no long hospital stay, and results that appear quickly and last for months. When you think about it, it’s easy to see why Botox is such a popular choice, for men or for women.
But what can Botox fix? The injections can alter the appearance of some of the most common problems men face as they age, such as wrinkles around the eyes, frown lines in the brow area, furrows and deep wrinkles on the forehead and a harsh jawline. After Botox, wrinkles and lines appear smoother or disappear altogether, and the jawline has a more rounded appearance — all in less than 10 minutes from the first prick of the needle.
Do you think Botox could be right for you? The best way to make your final decision is by talking to a professional who knows the ins and outs of Botox and other dermal fillers, as well as other cosmetic procedures.
