‘It’s no surprise’ more men want Botox


Men want Botox to stay on top of their game, a doctor has suggested.  A doctor has said he is not surprised that a growing number of men are having Botox to get rid of their wrinkles

Speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle after figures from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons showed that men had 14.5 per cent more Botox last year than in 2008, Dr Allan Parungao explained that older guys feel a need to compete with their younger counterparts in the workplace.

"More baby boomer men are turning to non-surgical cosmetic treatments to look younger and help stay competitive in the job market," he commented.

Dr Parungao added that Botox appeals to men because it improves their looks noticeably, but also does not have a lengthy recovery time like standard cosmetic surgery procedures.

This follows a recent survey from Men's Health magazine and Slendertone Face, which found that a quarter of men worry that wrinkles and looking old could hold them back at work.

Could men’s worries about ageing lead to more Botox?


Could more men soon be having Botox? More men could soon be tempted to turn toward Botox, if the findings of a new survey are anything to go by.

The poll, carried out by Men's Health magazine and Slendertone Face, discovered that 35 per cent of men say they worry about getting wrinkles and a saggy face, while 41 per cent fear that getting old and wrinkled could spoil their chances of being lucky with the opposite sex.

Meanwhile, a quarter of the guys questioned said they thought appearing old might hold them back at work.

More than half of the respondents said they put pressure on themselves to look young, athough one in ten said they feel their partner wants them to stay youthful.

However, although all of those polled recognised that ageing is inevitable, 67 per cent said they knew they could do something about it, which could include using more moisturiser or having Botox.

Last month, Caci Medi-spas clinical adviser Jackie Smith told the New Zealand Herald she has noticed more and more guys opting to have Botox in a bid to keep their skin looking younger.
