Why More Men Are Getting Botox & Other Aesthetic Treatments

Earn More with Men’s Botox & Other Aesthetic Treatments

In a world where first impressions matter – and where all of us our on our screens all of the time – men are increasingly turning to non-surgical aesthetic treatments to enhance their appearance and boost their confidence. The shift in increased men’s aesthetic treatments is notable, with statistics from reputable sources like the American Academy of Plastic Surgeons revealing a significant increase in men seeking non-surgical procedures.

But this trend in increased men’s cosmetic procedures is NOT just about vanity! Studies show that younger looking and attractive men, tend to both earn more and be promoted more frequently.

Dr. Nishath Hakim of Prosperity Health in Royal Oak, MI, recognizes that part of providing comprehensive care for men is helping them look as good on the outside as they feel on the inside. So, as part of her functional medicine approach, she offers natural treatments that help men look as good and young as they feel, without any telltale signs that look like they have “had work done”.

The Increase in Men’s Aesthetic Treatments

Several studies and surveys point to rising interest among men in non-surgical aesthetic treatments. According to the AAD 2023 Aesthetics Trends Survey, 39% of male respondents reported considering an aesthetic procedure in the next year, up from 35% in 2022. And in the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) 2022 Global Statistics, men now accounted for 15.6% of all aesthetic procedures worldwide in 2022, indicating a significant increase.

And there is a significant amount of research and evidence supporting the idea that men perceived as younger and/or more attractive earn more and are more likely to be promoted. In 2023 a study published in the Journal of Business Psychology found that men perceived as more attractive earned 9% more than their average-looking counterparts. This effect remained even after controlling for factors like education and experience.

And a 2021 review of 38 studies published in the Journal of Applied Psychology concluded that physical attractiveness positively influences career advancement for men. Men perceived as more attractive were more likely to be promoted and held higher-level positions.

Another 2022 study reported in the Journal of Organizational Behavior found that men with youthful facial features earned 10% more than those with mature features. This held true even across different occupations and industries. This supports the research in a 2020 report in the Journal of Human Resources that found men with more “baby-faced” features were perceived as more competent and trustworthy by managers, leading to a higher chance of promotion.

Scientists sometimes refer to this as the “Halo Effect” – in which attractive individuals are often stereotyped as being more intelligent, competent, and likable, leading to better evaluations and career opportunities.

“Brotox” – Men’s Botox & Xeomin

And according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2022, Botox and similar Botulinum injections like Xeomin, ranked as the number one minimally invasive aesthetic procedures among men – even ahead of laser hair removal.

Men, driven by workplace competition and the desire to present their best selves in the era of Zoom meetings, social media posts, and online dating, are increasingly seeking these treatments. Dr. Hakim at Prosperity Health in Royal Oak,  specializes in providing “Brotox,” a term affectionately coined for Botox and Xeomin treatments tailored to enhance masculine features without compromising a natural appearance.

Men’s Juvéderm

Juvéderm, is a line of natural dermal fillers whose main ingredient is hyaluronic acid-based – which is a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in the body. Juvéderm works by absorbing and binding 1000s of times its weight in water – which plumps the skin and fills wrinkles and lines for a more youthful appearance. Juvéderm dermal fillers, available at Prosperity Health in Royal Oak, come in a wide range of formulas designed to address various aesthetic concerns in men. From smoothing out wrinkles to restoring volume, Juvéderm’s versatility makes it an ideal choice for men seeking subtle and natural looking, yet impactful, improvements in their appearance.

One noteworthy formulation, Juvéderm Volux, is gaining popularity among men for its ability to sculp a more defined and masculine jawline. This firmer Juvéderm formula holds its shape, feeling like natural bone, to enhance the contours of a man’s face, providing a chiseled chin and jaw that aligns with standards of male attractiveness.

Men’s Wrinkle and Scar Reduction

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) combined with microneedling is another natural approach to skin rejuvenation, at Prosperity Health in Royal Oak. PRP uses the body’s own innate healing mechanisms to reduce lines and wrinkles as well as minimize scars.

PRP, derived from your blood, is rich in growth factors and platelets that stimulate cellular repair. Microneedling creates micro-injuries, prompting the skin to naturally regenerate and renew. The combination of PRP and Microneedling enhances the skin’s repair process, encouraging the production of collagen and elastin. This leads to improved skin texture, reduced fine lines, and a youthful glow.

PRP and Microneedling can also be highly effective in reducing the appearance of scars, including acne scars. The treatment supports the restructuring of damaged skin tissue.

Men’s Fat Reduction, Weight Loss & Muscle Building

In addition to restoring sexual vitality and performance, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) offers a range of aesthetic appearance benefits for men.

Hormonal imbalances, especially declining testosterone levels, can contribute to muscle loss. BHRT helps restore testosterone levels, aiding in the maintenance and growth of lean muscle mass. Hormonal fluctuations, particularly imbalances in cortisol and testosterone, can also contribute to the accumulation of abdominal fat. BHRT addresses these imbalances, resulting in a reduction in men’s belly fat.

As an added bonus, the hormonal balance achieved through BHRT contributes to skin elasticity and collagen production. This can enhance men’s skin health, promoting a more youthful and vibrant complexion.

Semaglutide, a groundbreaking medication found in both Ozempic and Wegovy, is also making waves as a men’s weight loss treatment. This injectable medication, a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, works by mimicking the function of a naturally occurring hormone in the body.

For men struggling with weight management, Semaglutide offers a unique and promising solution. It operates by influencing appetite regulation and satiety, primarily targeting the areas of the brain that control hunger. By signaling a sense of fullness, individuals are likely to consume fewer calories, leading to gradual and sustainable weight loss.

One notable additional advantage of Semaglutide is its ability to address not only weight loss but also associated health concerns. It has demonstrated efficacy in improving cardiovascular health and reducing the risk of obesity-related complications. As men often face unique challenges in weight loss, Semaglutide provides a valuable tool that works in harmony with the body’s natural processes, offering a comprehensive approach to achieving and maintaining a healthier weight.
