Why men in the Vancouver area should consider Botox injections
In the past, many have believed that men age more gracefully for women. Women have been using cosmetic treatments such as face-lifts and injections for decades to help them reduce the signs of aging and achieve a more youthful appearance. However, it is becoming more popular than ever for men in the Vancouver area to consider injectables such as Botox to help them reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face that are contributing to an aging look. In fact, a study done by the journal “Cosmetic Dermatology” has reported that men receiving Botox has increased over 250 percent in the last decade.
Botox injections have been used for many years as a cosmetic enhancer. This neuromodulator is made of botulinum toxin type A, a medication that has been used for decades in reducing muscle contractions. It has been used for everything from overactive bladder to chronic migraines and headaches. Dr. Adam Maddox and the team at Thrive are proud to use Botox for cosmetic purposes to address crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and forehead folds, which may be negatively impacting one’s appearance.
Botox injections are becoming more popular for men because men are now more proactive regarding their appearance. Men are realizing that their appearance can be improved with today’s cosmetic procedures including Botox. Botox makes men look better and feel more confident. In cases where youth is important, Botox gives them the competitive edge they need in their careers. Additionally, there is much less of a negative stigma associated with having aesthetic procedures done.
Some professionals contribute the increased popularity of Botox injections for men to the social acceptance of “metrosexuality.” Metrosexuality is a new term coined for men who are very adept at taking good care of their skin and body while dressing well. Men are beginning to feel the pressures of being more attractive in today’s society and therefore, have taken into consideration cosmetic treatments at anti-aging practices to give them the opportunity to improve their confidence and self-esteem.
