Men and Botox – The Myths Busted
Did you know that, in 2011, 2.5 million women had Botox treatment? And that only 225,000 men did the same? But now, Botox treatment Orange County CA facilities are seeing an influx of men, although they may not be as vocal about it yet. What this has also uncovered is that a lot of men have some concerns about Botox, and this is why so few have the treatment completed. So let’s bust those concerns, which are nothing but myths, once and for all!
- Botox Makes You Look Feminine and/or Frozen
Botox is a cosmetic product, but it is not a form of makeup. It doesn’t make your skin all ladylike either. Rather, it stops your facial muscles from contracting, meaning you have fewer wrinkles. It doesn’t change the appearance of the rest of your skin, in other words. And yes, too much Botox can make you develop a frozen look. However, that can be avoided by going to a trained and qualified professional, who will use the right dosage and only as often as you actually need it. You can be a manly man, therefore, just one that looks a decade younger.
- Botox Costs too Much
Botox isn’t free, that is for sure. However, you probably don’t think twice about spending money on a tailored suit, a nice watch, or a nice dinner. Botox is actually cheaper than any of those things. Plus, because it is increasing in popularity and availability, it is also becoming more affordable. So yes, you will have to pay a bit of money, but you should also see that as an investment in yourself.
- Straight Men Don’t Have Botox
This goes back to that strange idea that Botox makes you look feminine. Did you known, in fact, that after liposuction and laser hair removal, it is the most popular cosmetic procedure in men? Those 250,000 men who had Botox in 2011 were not all gay. Some may have been, since 11% of the population identifies as being part of the LGBTQ+ community, but that has nothing to do with Botox in general.
- Botox Takes Forever
Botox is actually known as the “lunch time face lift”. The entire procedure, from entering the professional’s office to leaving it with Botox injections, can take as little as an hour! And once you have had one treatment completed and you no longer need the full introduction, you can be done in 20 minutes. The full results are visible within about a week.
- Botox Hurts
Botox means getting injections, and injections can be felt. However, they definitely do not hurt. All you will feel is a tiny pinch, and surely a real man is able to handle that? Considering 2.5 million women were able to withstand the “pain” of Botox, it is likely that you will be perfectly fine as well. Of course, it has been scientifically proven that men have a much lower pain threshold than women…
