Tapping a little juice from the fountain of youth is something that women have been doing for years, and now men are joining in the growing trend of using Botox to remedy the signs of aging.
The numbers certainly don’t lie, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 400,000 U.S. men received Botox injections in 2014 (via Forbes).
That signals a significant jump, a 337 percent increase in fact, over the past decade.
Dr. Michael Bedics–of the Age Management Center in Portland, Maine–motivates men to jump on the “Brotox” trend.
“We encourage men to walk on the wild side,” said Dr. Bedics.
“There’s definitely still a stigma out there that men are vain if they want to look younger,” said Jason Bloom, M.D., of the Main Line Center for Laser Surgery, but things certainly seem to be changing.
