Is Botox an essential expense?
July 2, 2012
The poll found that 10 percent of men surveyed from London say Botox injections are a vital part of maintaining their looks.
It also revealed that men from the UK are also taking other steps to ensure they look their best. Overall, one in ten said that having a fake tan is essential to looking good. In one area, 22 percent of men though it was crucial to looking their best. 23% of men in Wales thought eyebrow shaping was a critical part of their grooming regime.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, since the year 2000, Botox has been the most popular cosmetic nonsurgical procedure. In 2011, more than 2.6 million individuals underwent injections of Botox and other Botulinum Toxin Type A substances, such as Dysport.
While Botox often provides positive cosmetic results with few side effects, its effects are not permanent and injections need to be repeated every three to six months for the best results.
Individuals interested in the procedure should speak with a licensed, board-certified plastic surgeon or cosmetic dermatologist to ensure their safety and a positive outcome.
