Even in 2020 — a year when many of us were staying home — more than a quarter million American men decided to do something to improve their appearance. They chose Botox®, a cosmetic injectable that freezes and smoothes dynamic wrinkles.
In fact, we’ve seen an uptick in Brotox (Botox for men) at our offices on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York City, and in Madison, Connecticut. Here, Norman J. Pastorek, MD, and Janice Pastorek, BSN, RN, offer Botox injections not just to women, but also to men who want to turn back the clock and put their best face forward.
Why are so many men opting for this treatment? Let’s find out.
It’s safe and convenient
Botox was approved by the FDA two decades ago. Today, millions of people all around the globe turn to this cosmetic injectable to smooth wrinkles.
With so many patients receiving the treatment, you can rest easy knowing that Botox is safe. You can also be assured that it works. Specifically, Botox freezes and smoothes dynamic wrinkles, like:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines (the lines between your eyebrows)
- Laugh lines around your mouth
If you’re bothered by wrinkles in any of those areas, don’t hesitate to talk to our team. At our office, we also offer Dysport® and Xeomin®, two other similar treatments that work the same way as Botox.
More and more men choose Botox once they learn just how easily they can get it. After you talk with us about your ideal outcome and we agree on a treatment plan, the actual injection process takes just minutes.
You don’t have to worry about any downtime, either. You can head straight from your Botox appointment to the next thing on your agenda. Your results should appear in about a week and last three months or more.
Their friends are doing it
Even if this is your first time hearing the term “Brotox,” rest assured this isn’t a new trend. Even back in 2016, more than 450,000 men chose this age-defying option. Four years later, that number has more than tripled.
As men get this treatment, their friends and colleagues have more exposure to both its results and the convenience that comes with it. So you can expect Brotox to grow increasingly popular in the coming years.
If you’d like to learn what all the hype is about — and what Botox can do for you — don’t hesitate to call one of our offices or schedule your appointment online today.
