What is Brotox?
Yes, you guessed it. This is the world famous neurotoxin for the boys, the brothers, the bros! And why not? I’m all for everybody learning about and getting to love aesthetic enhancements. Once upon a time it was just women who enjoyed the benefits of neurotoxins, but now more and more men are turning to the needle to boost their confidence, sex appeal and careers.
Neurotoxins freeze or delay movement in muscle tissue where the injections are placed. We can relax wrinkles, smooth lines, relieve migraines, unclench jaws and improve surface skin texture. That means men who frown a lot can erase the very deep lines that can form between the brows and along the forehead. Remember men have stronger muscles so they need more neurotoxin.
We touched on some of the reasons for using neurotoxins, but apart from the obvious ones of looking and feeling good, there’s prevention of further aging damage, preparation for big events such as getting married and other landmark life events. Men tend to be more cautious in self improvement so this is a great way to introduce other procedures such as chemical peels, IPL, Morpheus8 RF Microneedling into their beauty repertoire. Men also know that there is no more stigma connected to self improvement and with the advent of social media we are often hearing about male stars in traditionally masculine arenas such as sport and music, having tweaks that make them look younger.
I’m very happy to see this change in attitude because feeling good in your skin is for all of us not just women! I am more than happy to help my patients reach their goals and am particularly thrilled when I see couples coming in for fillers and neurotoxins together.
