Botox for Men: Botox is the most widely used and highly-popular non-surgical, anti-wrinkle treatment in the UK. Millions of British women rely on a once or twice yearly visit to their aesthetic doctor to receive what many see as an elixir of youth. Why is Botox so popular? Well, simply put – IT WORKS.
Anti-wrinkle injections are clinically proven to relax the facial muscles which cause dynamic expression lines and to temporarily smooth areas such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, Glabellar lines (the lines between the eyebrows). Botox is a treatment that is a must-have for glamorous women all over the world, who want to retain the appearance of youthful-looking skin.
At Bank MediSpa in Hale and Warrington, we are seeing a rise in the number of men who are coming to us for this treatment and we put it down to several reasons.
In the past, it was seen as ‘un-manly’ for a heterosexual, middle-aged man to undergo any kind of skin rejuvenation treatment. A shave and perhaps a nose and ear hair trim was about the limit and anything more would have been seen as something that only homosexuals or those in certain professions would go for.
Times are changing rapidly and with more women expecting their guys to take better care of their skin, the men are starting to want to look good for both their other halves and indeed, themselves.
Social changes are also adding to the desire for men to keep up with their female counterparts when it comes to anti-ageing treatments. A rise in the numbers of divorces and those starting new relationships, well in to their 40s and 50s means that dating is more common for this age group and maintaining a healthy and youthful appearance to attract a new potential partner is important.
Those in the public eye and changing male trends are also having a big effect on how men take care of themselves.
TV shows, films and iconic male models and actors who openly admit to having Botox and other injectable treatments means that men from the age of 30 are starting to see the benefits of this non-surgical treatment.
As more men encourage the use of non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the media and on TV, the average metrosexual is coming around to the idea of competing with women to look as youthful and glowing as possible and for longer!
The ‘copy-cat boyfriend’ as we affectionately call him, is also very common.
As many women in Hale and Warrington undergo regular anti-wrinkle injections, their other halves have started to decide that if it’s good enough for their girl then its good enough for them!
We are incredibly discrete at the clinic and offer a straightforward and professional approach, men feel more comfortable and confident in visiting us for these anti-ageing treatments and may even book in to come along with their nearest and dearest and make a day of it.
The stigma of men seeming ‘girly’ or ‘vain’ if they undergo cosmetic treatments to enhance their appearance is long gone. Botox for men is on the rise and here in Hale and Warrington, we applaud and encourage these changes!
