Would it surprise you if we said more men are getting injectable fillers like Botox and dermal fillers?
According to recent statistics, that is exactly what is happening.
Guys are increasingly getting Botox and fillers to appear younger, and more Botox providers are noticing a significant increase in their male clientele.
Guys Are Getting Botox & Fillers To Look Better on Social Media
You are probably asking yourself how popular Botox for men has become in recent years?
Well, since 2010, there has been a 20 percent increase in the number of men getting plastic surgery in general, with a large majority of them opting for minimally invasive procedures like cosmetic fillers that can reduce wrinkles and restore lost volume in the face.
The number of men getting Botox has increased nearly 27 percent during the same time span, which has led several media outlets to use the term “Brotox.”
In 2017, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported that men made up 10 percent of all cosmetic treatments administered.
Social media plays a large role in men wanting to look younger in photos. Some suggest the low cost of the procedure is a quick fix for those who spot perceived flaws in their social photos.
In fact, the influence of social media is so strong that some plastic surgeons have developed their own procedures to enhance client’s appearance in selfies. One facial plastic surgeon in New York is credited with creating the LitLift, which utilizes a series of Botox and dermal filler injections on six different areas of the face to make clients appear well-lit.
Even Allergan, the creator of Botox, is betting on Botox for men. The company recently announced that it will be rolling on TV spots targeting male consumers. (Stay tuned for a Botox for men commercial broadcast on a TV screen near you.)
