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.
