Over the last five years there has been a substantial increase in the number of men seeking Botox®.

There has to be a reason for this. After all, men are generally very rational when it comes to decisions like this.

Does Botox® improve one’s appearance enough to result in men having a better social or home life?

Or sex life?


Actually, there are a few common and very sensible reasons for this.

The first is that in a very competitive job market, older and older looking doesn’t translate into better opportunities for jobs. Looking more youthful and robust can give one an edge over the competition and Botox® can surely help by reducing the creases and wrinkles of the face.

Many men also have deep vertical or oblique lines or furrows in the frown area of the forehead (called the glabella – the area between the eyebrows) which often can falsely convey to others a sense of anger, unhappiness or frustration when, in fact, one is perfectly fine. This is further worsened by subconscious contraction of the underlying muscles causing these lines or creases to be even more severe and accentuated. The Botox® will allow one to have a more calm, pleasant and non-threatening appearance.

This is both great for work and at home!

Many men, whether in their forties, fifties or sixties, feel a lot younger than they look. They may be in great shape and healthy and, well, single and looking for a significant other. If they can look younger, better and more pleasant by using Botox® then that’s a great decision and one more important reason that it has become increasingly popular with men.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
