Men and Aesthetics
In recent years, more men have been using BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers to reduce lines and wrinkles on their faces. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), over 447,000 men had BOTOX® Cosmetic performed in 2016, a 376% increase since the year 2000. The reason for the rise in BOTOX® Cosmetic and facial fillers for men has been attributed to an ever-increasing competitive job market and the desire to project a youthful and energetic appearance.
Expertise In Cosmetic Injections For Men
At Flawless Med Spa, we understand the motivation to look and feel your best, that’s why we offer BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers for men to lessen the signs of aging on the face. As male injectables become more popular each year, it’s important to understand that there are subtle differences in how they work between men and women. While it’s just as safe for men as it is for women and the results are the same, the way in which it is administered and the techniques used can vary. Because of these slight differences between the sexes, we recommend having your Brotox performed by a trusted injectables specialist so that you can get the best results. Some of the differences include:
Men need more:
Because men have more muscle in their face, it generally takes more of the product to achieve the desired results than it does for women. On average, women generally require 30-50 units of BOTOX® Cosmetic whereas men generally require 50-75 units.
The difference in brow & face shape:
One of the most important things for natural-looking BOTOX® is the brow shape. Obtaining an aesthetically-pleasing brow shape is key for both men and women. Women tend to have a gentle arch for their brow while men generally have a lower, straighter brow line.
The same applies to dermal fillers – our highly-skilled injectors are cautious to make sure that the face is not “overdone” to the point of looking unnatural, a common concern with men receiving fillers. Your provider will take special care to ensure that your final results are as natural as possible based on your specific facial shape.
Precision in technique:
Because of the different facial needs of men and women, it takes a highly-trained individual to deliver the precise amount in the right locations to achieve optimal results for both men and women. Men also tend to have higher hairlines than women which require BOTOX® to be administered higher and more accurately to produce natural-looking results.
