A testament to the fact that cosmetic procedures like Botox aren’t just for women, Brotox has exploded in popularity over the last decade. As its nickname might suggest, “Brotox” refers to Botox procedures for men. And according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of men seeking Botox has risen by an astounding 355 percent in the last 15 years.
Despite its catchy name, Brotox is exactly the same procedure as the Botox injections that many women also utilize to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. During the 15- to 20-minute procedure, Dr. Crabtree will carefully administer injections to the desired areas while you simply relax. Because this treatment is generally quick and easy, it’s often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure,” meaning that it can be scheduled during your lunch break or a free afternoon, as it requires little to no downtime afterward.
Most people will notice their final results within 2 to 7 days following their treatment, and these results typically last anywhere from 3 to 6 months but because the procedure is relatively convenient, many men and women find that making regular appointments spaced several months apart is easy to fit into their busy schedules.
