Did you know that in 2010, in California, there were more complaints about age discrimination than racial discrimination, sexual harassment and discrimination due to sexual orientation? Nowadays, more than ever, men are feeling the competition in the job market against 20-something hipsters who are the epitome of youth, vigor, and wrinkle-free faces. How can a 40-something man with frown lines compete? The answer is simple – Botox. A treatment of Botox injections takes about 30 minutes and results in the temporary relaxation of frown lines (and crow’s feet, too) for up to 4 months. A forehead without furrows can take years – even a decade – off an appearance.
Botox is a highly purified, naturally occurring protein that has the ability to relax the muscles to which it is applied. At Blu Cocoon Med Spa in San Jose, we regularly treat men with Botox and, if necessary, dermal fillers (to restore lost volume in the face). Our clinicians have honed their skills to work with a person’s features to give just the right amount so the result will be natural, not “done”.
On the topic of treating men with Botox, we recently read that men (in comparison to women) are more likely to get their Botox from “other” establishments such as a dentist’s office or in the back of a hair salon by a beauty esthetician. Not sure exactly why this may be the case but whatever the reason, we don’t recommend it! People who are giving Botox “on the side” of their career are less likely to have the skills and training necessary to perform an excellent job (see our blog post on our Platinum Status from Allergan, the maker of Botox Cosmetic). When having a Botox treatment, consider it an “investment”. A skilled clinician in a reputable establishment like a med spa is going to be able to give you the result you desire. At Blu Cocoon we are one hundred percent focused on making our clientele look good because aesthetic treatments are our primary focus.
