Brotox is an urban dictionary approved word to describe the use of Botox® in men.
A growing trend and on the rise by around 10% every year globally, an increasing number of male clients are discretely coming to The Face Place to receive subtle treatments to soften the frown line, or ‘grumpy lines’, the horizontal ‘worry or stress’ lines on the forehead, and the ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes. Men have begun to adopt a more open attitude toward cosmetic procedures and have become more aware of the treatments available to them, and the age range of men being treated has widened. We are seeing younger men keen to start early and manage the ageing process, through to older gentlemen looking to soften existing lines and wrinkles and all ages in between. The number one thing we hear from male clients is they want to look ‘less stressed and grumpy’ – this is often key for men in professional careers.
Botox for Men
Men and women have very different features, so it is crucial that you choose a clinician who understands the difference in the male anatomy; identifying the bigger muscles (facially, as well as on the body) and stronger bone structure is key. It is important that men still retain some ‘ruggedness’ to the face, while reducing the impact of features that make them look tired, angry or stressed.
Brotox is a very simple and effective treatment. Cosmetically we use Botox treatments to relax the muscles in the face that create lines and wrinkles and to prevent further deepening of lines. It is a simple 10-minute procedure, with a few tiny injections directly into the muscles we want to treat. There is an art to Botox treatments – to achieve the best, most natural looking results it must be placed in the right muscle, in the correct place, at an ideal dose, by an experienced clinician.
