An article in today's New York Times discusses the use of Botox among the less fair sex. Allergan has started marketing Botox to men, with the help of Olympic gold medal swimmer Mark Spitz. According to plastic surgeons, men often require higher doses because of the structure of their faces and skin and usually target brows and forehead lines.
One of the most interesting points the article brings up is that even men that do get injections wait longer between appointments than their female counterparts. “Men tolerate the return of wrinkles better,” says Dr. Alan Gold, the president of the American Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. “They’re not as bothered as quickly. Women sit in front of a mirror putting on makeup every day and are acutely aware of changes.”
How would you feel if your brother, father, or significant other wanted to get 'toxed?
