Now more than ever, it appears that you cannot afford to look your age. Men and women of a certain age are using Botox, dermal fillers and other minimally invasive treatments like peels and photofacials (IPL) to maintain a youthful appearance. Botox especially, remains a popular option for men for treatment of frown lines between the eyebrows.
Botox smooths out the vertical lines that make men look angry and confused. Men are also using Botox to smooth out the horizontal creases and lines on their foreheads. At last count, over 300,000 men in the US have been “Botoxed”. These men are not all actors, musicians and sports casters. They are business executives, attorneys, teachers and software techies.
While they are more anxious about the pain of the injections compared to their female counterparts, and are very concerned about looking overdone, they definitely express their appreciation at the refreshed, younger look that Botox gives them.
A new term has been coined to describe men getting Botox; “Boytox”.
The “Boytox” Club is discrete and growing. Members of the Boytox Club do not look frazzled by the stresses and demands of today’s work environments. They look younger than their stated age and plan to remain competitive and working for the foreseeable future.
