Is It Time for You to Get Brotox?
29th June 2015
Skin injectable procedures have been a popular anti-aging treatment with women since the mid 90's.
But sagging skin, double chins and wrinkles can all affect men as well, and they're beginning to realise this.
So with the number of brotox treatments on the rise, we decided to give you the lowdown on this emerging procedure.
What is brotox?
A humorous portmanteau of the increasingly popular botox procedure, brotox is an anti-aging treatment, which involves injecting specialised anti-aging injectables into the upper layers of the skin to help rejuvenate and combat the emergence of wrinkles.
Essentially, the treatment works by encouraging your skin to produce more collagen, an entirely natural substance which helps to strengthen your skin and smooth away any lines or folds that have developed over the years.
Why are more men opting for brotox?
Whilst anti-aging treatments have long been associated with the fairer sex, the increase in the number of brotox treatments would seem to suggest that women aren't the only ones who are negatively affected by self-esteem and body issues.
Indeed, the rise of metrosexuality over the past few years would seem to indicate the disintegration of the stigma surrounding men's concern for their skin, as well as explaining the exponential increase in the number of brotox procedures undertaken over the past year.
Is brotox for me?
This decision is entirely up to you, and will depend on your satisfaction with your own appearance.
Although there is a strong argument to be made for men's looks getting better with age, if you feel that the corners of your eyes are looking just a little bit too wrinkly, or your skin is that little bit too lacklustre generally, it might be an idea to consult a dermatologist to discuss your options when it comes to anti-aging procedures, brotox or otherwise.
But if you do decide to take the plunge and go for a brotox treatment, make sure to discuss the effect you're hoping to achieve with a doctor who's experienced with male patients, as there can be some key anatomical differences between men and women which will affect the way your anti-aging procedure should be carried out.
