When it comes to utilizing Botox® and facial fillers, women aren’t the only people who notice signs of aging and seek these treatments to achieve a younger looking appearance. Although men may not discuss it as frequently as women, they are no happier with wrinkles and fine lines than their female counterparts. For this reason, some men also consider Botox or facial fillers to help rejuvenate and refresh their natural appearance.
If you’ve wondered about such treatments, it’s probably because you are concerned with crow's feet, sun damage, hollowing features, and deep brow furrows around your face, as these are the most common aging signs for men. Below are some essential facts about how you can achieve noticeable improvements with Botox injections or dermal facial fillers.
Injectable wrinkle relaxers are extremely popular for men, as they offer realistic results without the need for intricate surgeries or missed time from work. In fact, cosmetic surgeons like Dr. Patt of Houston Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, know that it is possible to correct most crow's feet issues, forehead wrinkles and furrowed brows in less than minutes with two simple procedures.
Why Use Botox & Facial Fillers?
Botox was approved in 2002 as a muscle paralysis agent. It decreases facial motion and therefore helps eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. Although muscle paralysis is an ominous phrase for some people, Botox is completely safe when administered by a qualified professional.
The term "fillers" refers to another range of products that were designed to enhance facial volume and these are different from Botox. However, both are great options if your primary goal is a smoother, younger-looking complexion. It is essential to discuss each option with a facial specialist who can recommend the best treatment for your specific goals.
Both are proven extremely effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sunken facial features.
Popularity of Cosmetic Procedures Increasing Among Men
As of 2017, one in every eight cosmetic procedures in the United States were performed on men, as opposed to one in 20 in 1999. This trend is easy to understand, as all individuals age regardless of their gender. Therefore, men and women have identical goals: to increase self-esteem and feel better about themselves when looking in a mirror. For this reason, if you want to lessen the visible signs of aging, but are not yet ready to pursue full facial plastic surgery, you should consider the minimally invasive options of facial fillers or Botox injections, and take the first step towards a better complexion and a more youthful appearance.
