The days of men not caring about their appearances are over. We want to look and feel good about ourselves, whether it’s with a new fitted suit or the way we style our hair. However, sometimes age could get in the way of us feeling our best when the face stares back in the mirror. At Zuliani Facial Aesthetics, we get it–we all want our appearance to match the youthful and energetic person we still are. These days, men are making up one of the fastest growing demographics at Dr. Zuliani’s Michigan practice. More and more, guys are turning to facial surgery, laser and light treatments, and injectables to wipe out wrinkles and fine lines and regain their youthful appearance. What is the most popular treatment men are getting? That is Botox!
One of the men who has recently had Botox is NFL legend, Deion Sanders. You wouldn’t have guessed it by looking at him, but the legendary cornerback known as “Primetime” is now 50 years old. It doesn’t seem that long ago that he was electrifying fans on both the football and baseball fields. The now TV analyst wasn’t pleased with what he was seeing in the mirror as he got older. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight he explains, “I noticed frown lines and crow’s feet. I am like, ‘I have got to do something about this!’”
And do something, he did. Sanders chose to reclaim his youthful appearance by eliminating his wrinkles and lines with Botox. “It was definitely the first time I have ever done that, but I go by the motto and the slogan that I used my whole career – if you look good, you feel good,” he said.
Now Sanders says he couldn’t be happier with his refreshed look, “The before and after pictures are distinctly different, and I love the result.” His wife is pleased with the outcome too! “Oh, she loves it. She loved it! She is ready to go back (to get Botox) with me,” he says.
Sanders is not alone—believe it or not, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that more than 447,000 Botox injections were performed on men in 2016. That’s a nearly 25 percent increase since the year 2010!
If the current trend holds—and Dr. Zuliani has no doubts it will—Botox treatments for men could easily surpass half a million in the next couple of years.
A lot of men like Sanders love Botox for its ability to bring back their youthful look, but turning back the clock on aging isn’t the only motivation men have for seeking out Botox treatments. Botox has also been shown to help men who struggle with excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) that can’t be otherwise controlled with antiperspirants or other medical approaches.
Chronic migraine sufferers can also look to Botox to find relief. It’s the first and only FDA-cleared treatment for preventing chronic migraines. Unlike aspirin or ibuprofen, injections with Botox can stop headaches and migraines before they even start, helping men avoid several potentially crippling headaches.
