Why Men Are Turning to Botox in Record Numbers
According to industry research by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox® for men has quadrupled in the past year alone and they estimate that nearly 10% of all Botox treatments are being sought after by men. There’s even a term for it… Brotox. Why the sudden upturn?
“While we do not have official Canadian statistics, we do see similar trends in our Oakville office,” says Dr. John G. Henein, Owner of Oak Lake Medical Centre & Spa. “More men are requesting general non-invasive treatments, with Botox requests leading the way. The reasons aren’t always to combat wrinkles either. Botox, used in many medical professions, has health benefits that so many people simply don’t understand.”
In today’s visually-focused, social environment is it any wonder that men are turning to non-invasive cosmetic surgery options to look their best? The pressure to put forth the best view of yourself and your life is ever present; however, Botox is about so much more than smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
Our Male Oakville Clients Tell Us
Before any client receives treatment, our expert team at Oak Lake Medical Centre & Spa conducts a thorough analysis and health history to help balance expectations with achievable results and direct clients toward the procedure that makes the most sense for them. While Botox isn’t a lifelong commitment, we strive to ensure our clients are doing what’s right for their physical and emotional health.
When talking with our male clients, we have come to understand the main driving forces behind this sudden trend to Botox here at our Oakville clinic.
Botox Give You An Edge in the Workplace
Botox offers a non-surgical approach to treating and reducing wrinkles and facial lines. Men who would like to look younger without the expense, discomfort or recovery time of surgery can rejuvenate their look easily. Many of our professional clients report that a younger, more exuberant look gives them the confidence to compete with their younger counterparts. Some, who are closer to retirement age, say that the younger look allows them to remain in the job that they love for longer periods of time.
Botox Helps With Migraines
While still a relatively new treatment, recent studies showed that those suffering from frequent migraines, noted a reduction in pain following Botox injections. Doctors believe that Botox works for migraine headaches because it blocks chemicals (called neurotransmitters) before they get to the nerve endings around the head and neck, ultimately blocking out the pain.
Botox Relieves Excessive Sweating
Heavy sweating (hyperhidrosis) is a struggle for millions of men and women around the world and most have just learned to live with the embarrassment it can bring. Our Oakville team has a solution with proven results. Botox inhibits the nerve signals that control sweating and when these signals are no longer sent to the brain, or they are inhibited, they do not cause excessive sweating.
“Regardless of why our clients turn to Botox, the one linking factor is confidence,” says Dr. Henein. “Those seeking Botox treatments are looking to feel better and more confident in their daily lives. We are proud to be a part of that journey and provide a safe and non-invasive option for our clients. When you look better, you feel better and perform better.”
