The percentage of men in Los Angeles using BOTOX is higher than ever before. One million people receive this procedure each year, and 17 percent are men. The biggest benefit is a younger appearance. As injections are placed into facial muscles, lines and wrinkles are erased, and effects last up to six months. This is especially helpful if you are a man who feels pressure to compete in the job market "rat race." Getting or keeping a good job after age 50 can be difficult. However, looking younger often makes men feel younger and exude vitality that is attractive to employers.

Since this treatment is much less invasive than surgery, it is inviting to men. Within minutes, you and can return to normal activity. There is little pain involved.

There are other medical benefits of BOTOX for men. For instance it is effective at stopping excessive sweating. In 2004, the FDA approved this substance as a treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis. It helps raise self esteem, especially during a business meeting. If you are a man who sweats profusely, you will no longer need to worry about embarrassing underarm rings or wet palms.

A new study out of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine uncovered "Brotox" brings prostate benefits. When an injection is placed into an enlarged prostate gland, symptoms seem to improve. This heightens a man's quality of life into older age. Studies are still being done, but so far, results are promising.

Certified BOTOX Injection Specialists

As men and BOTOX are becoming a popular blend, the marketplace is filling with businesses offering procedures not administered by medical professionals. If you are a man who is interested in BOTOX, it is essential to select a provider who specializes in the treatment. A trained and certified BOTOX injector with plenty of experience under the supervision of a physician can answer all your questions and will provide the best results.
