Botox ‘should not be available through prize draws’

Tue

Botox 'should not be available through prize draws'Health experts have spoken out against competitions that offer cosmetic procedures such as Botox as a prize.

The Independent Healthcare Advisory Services (IHAS) and the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons are unhappy that surgery is being advertised in this way, BBC News reports.

Sally Taber of IHAS said prize draws and loyalty card schemes could encourage young people to sign up for treatments they do not need, without properly considering the consequences.

"They're enticing people to have cosmetic surgery who may not have even thought about it," Ms Taber told the news provider.

"It's important people make an informed decision in the right environment," she added.

A recent event known as My Big Fat Plastic Surgery Prize Draw offered ticket holders the chance to win plastic surgery worth £4,000.

This comes after plastic surgeon Peter Paterson told the Lancashire Telegraph that a growing number of British men are opting for Botox injections and other facial procedures to keep them looking "young, energetic and vibrant".ADNFCR-2621-ID-800602747-ADNFCR

‘More businessmen’ seeking Botox treatment

'More businessmen' seeking Botox treatment  Increasing numbers of career-minded men are choosing to receive Botox treatment in a bid to improve their appearance, an expert has claimed.

According to plastic surgeon Peter Paterson, image-conscious males are selecting cosmetic treatment to look as "slick and attractive" as contestants on The Apprentice.

In an interview with the Lancashire Telegraph, Mr Paterson revealed that the growing trend of metrosexuality has resulted in men accounting for one in four of his clientele.

Career-focused males in their mid-20s are also seeking treatment such as anti-wrinkle injections, laser line removals and fillers in order to look better, Mr Paterson remarked.

He added: "Programmes like The Apprentice have put the focus more than ever on looking slick and coming across as young, energetic and vibrant."

A rise in the number of celebrities receiving Botox treatment could be responsible for its significant surge in popularity.

Music mogul Simon Cowell and True Romance star Christian Slater are among the well-known men who have chosen the treatment to improve their appearance.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800581187-ADNFCR
