Over the last decade there has been a significant increase in the number of men having cosmetic procedures like botox. Botox is no longer just for women, as brotox has also become extremely popular. Botox is a well-known anti-wrinkle injection that produces subtle, natural looking results. But what exactly is brotox.
What exactly is brotox?
Brotox is simply botox for men, as it’s the same injectable treatment that many women get to treat dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. It’s been estimated that approximately 20-30% of clients requesting botox in the US are men.
Botox or botulinum toxin type A, is a neurotoxin that works by temporarily blocking the transmission of signals from the nerves to the muscles. This inhibits the muscle’s ability to contract, and minimizes muscle activity. The results last approximately 3 months.

- Social media: Like women, men are also getting botox to look better on social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram. Since botox smooths expression lines on the forehead and
