Botox for Men — Busting Common Myths

botox treatments

It’s a common misconception that Botox is only for aging women who want to look young. In reality, more and more men are opting for Botox procedures, too. In fact, the male patient population is steadily growing. While women are still the majority, men are seeing the benefits for themselves. Approximately one in 10 cosmetic patients are men, as of 2013. Still, common myths are surrounding the procedure.

Myth #1: Botox Takes Time

This is wrong, pure and simple. Botox is actually a relatively quick procedure. In fact, treatment typically takes 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery. Most patients schedule their appointment for a lunch hour or day off without fail.

Myth #2: You’ll Look Like You’ve Had Work Done

One primary concern most prospective patients have with cosmetic procedures is they don’t want to look as if they’ve had work done. People put a lot of stock into what everyone else thinks. It’s human nature. With Botox, the procedure is smooth and subtle. You’ll notice reduces lines around the eyes and brows almost instantly.

Myth #3: New and Untested

Again, this is completely false. In 2002, Botox became the first FDA-approved product designed specifically for moderate to severe frown lines. In 2013, Botox became the first and only FDA-approved cosmetic procedure to improve crow’s feet.

Myth #4: For Lips Only

People often consider cosmetic procedures to enhance the lips and only the mouth. This is wrong, though. Sure, Botox is possible on the lips, but they’re not its sole purpose. Botox has been approved for crow’s feet, frown lines, and more.
