Some Raleigh men have decided to be more proactive about their appearance and give Botox treatments a shot — dubbed “brotox” for men — they’re getting more compliments and say they have a bit more swag.
There’s less of a stigma associated with cosmetic procedures for men nowadays. Men who have tried Botox say they feel better, look better, and believe it gives them a competitive edge.
Botox Use Rises For Raleigh Men
It’s been nearly nine years since the U.S. great recession and many people don’t feel a full economic recovery. With the economy being a major factor, many men feel pressured to maintain a more youthful and attractive appearance in a highly competitive marketplace.
For years, women have been held to a higher standard of beauty than men. Now men want to make sure they are complimentary of their female counterparts — and besides, a Botox treatment can take as little as fifteen minutes, allowing men to return to the office after having their procedure.

How Does Botox Work?
Physicians have been using Botox for years to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases in women. Men who want to reduce the signs of aging and look a little less stressed are opting for Botox treatments too.
As we age, fine lines develop in the upper part of the face. These lines, wrinkles, and folds are due to repetitive contraction of muscles in the forehead, between the eyes, and around the eyes. The combination of this constant folding of the skin and other environmental damage results in crow’s feet, smoker’s lips and other cosmetic concerns. When used on small muscles in the upper face, Botox smoothes out wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet.
