Botox for Men OK but Let’s Get Real
Botox for Men I just read an article on Linkedin that called attention to this new website advertising Botox for men. The article is pretty funny because it calls attention to the guys in the ad and the fact that very few guys come in for Botox who look like this. Mostly what we see is normal, everyday looking guys who just want to look a little better.
Men generally get Botox because they feel that the lines of their forehead are just too deep or the lines around their eyes make them look too weathered. Unlike women, most of us do not mind wrinkles, we just do not like it when they are, “too much”. Guys are also generally opposed to the maintenance factor that Botox has. While many men wouldn’t mind getting Botox to soften their forehead lines or get Botox to help out their crow’s feet, many I know are willing to live with their lines rather than have to come in every 3 to 4 months to get their Botox.
It would be much better if we could administer Botox at the barber shop, but believe me, it does not work there. I’ve tried it. Just not enough guys or gals come through any one shop to make it worthwhile.
However, for the few men who feel they need it and are willing to come in to see us a little Botox will go a long way. Just don’t expect to look like the guys on this Botox advertising site.
I agree that the guys in the Botox for men website look a little more like hair model for a hair salon than they the regular guys who come in to see me for Botox. No doubt the Zohan would be happy with their hair though.
We do see a number of men who come in for filler, especially the 5 year filler Bellafill. Predominantly we treat under their eyes to remove the tired look. It works wonders! Here is an example:
