Guys, I’ll get right to the point - you might need Botox too.
You’re probably thinking that Botox is just for women. Or it’s superficial. Or it’s just something dudes don’t do. Well, you’re wrong.
In fact, guys are getting Botox now more than ever, and we have plenty of male patients coming in for Botox treatments at Perfect Face Aesthetic Medicine. Indeed, there are plenty of reasons why you might want to come in for a Botox treatment yourself.
For starters, your significant other will appreciate it. I know Dr. Zoe appreciates the time and effort I dedicate to both staying in shape and keeping my skin looking young and healthy. Time and training inevitably leave their marks on both your body and face; while PFAM can’t fix your injuries (we can soon though, stay tuned!) Botox can help you get rid of those crows feet and forehead lines that come with years of focused grunting and scowling at heavy weights.
It can help your career. Multiple studies have shown that there are positive benefits to being attractive; people assume attractive people are more intelligent and trustworthy. Attractive people also tend to get paid better and get promoted faster. Seriously, there’s a book about it in addition to many years of well done research in the fields of behavioral economics and psychology.
But at the end of the day, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to look younger. Aging is a fact of life. Even though we can’t stay young, we can at least appear young. And botox is a very common, quick, and safe way to decrease signs of aging.
If Botox doesn’t seem like the right fit (it’s not for everyone), maybe a light chemical peel or microneedling can help you achieve a natural fresh look that you (and your partner) will appreciate. Personally, these are the options I choose when looking to lessen the dermatological effects of years on call and being beaten up while training Jiu-Jitsu.
Listen, you’re a guy. You’ll make your own decisions. But don’t let old school perceptions of what it means to be a “man” define how you should act. What’s important is that you feel good about yourself. And if looking good helps you get there, that’s ok. It doesn’t hurt to come in and start the conversation.
