It’s no surprise really, that more and more of us are keen to turn back the hands of time a little. Most of us want to look good and are always keen to try the latest new “must have” product and see if it works for us. Right?
Same goes for Botox and fillers. No longer just the thing us ladies indulge in though… Oh no! Chances are a guy you know has braved a needle or two in order to look ‘better’. Whether, for them, that means looking younger, brighter or just smoother, they are at it too. Data published in the US suggests more and more men are choosing anti-wrinkle injections and fillers in order to get the look they want, Botulinum Toxin injections ranking the highest procedure at over 3.5 million a year, and fillers over 1.6 million. I’ve tried looking for uk statistics but unsurprisingly there’s very little data to be found.
And why shouldn’t guys go for it? Rylan Clark of X factor fame has had it. Simon Cowell openly admits to giving nature a helping hand, and who can deny he looks pretty good? Ok, some of you might, disagree given his penchant for a chest flash and high waist trousers. But his face looks good. Reportedly Gordon Ramsay has given it a go too following advice from Simon(!?). Ok, so maybe my argument is losing it at this point …… I’ll give you that one! Wayne Rooney has even been subjected to scrutiny after a recent TV appeal causing speculation he’s had Botox to his forehead. So what? It’s his face and he can do what he likes.
Gone are the days where men paid no interest to their appearance or skincare regime. The skincare ranges available for men are ever increasing which is only to be celebrated. It’s only natural they’re going to explore other options in order to achieve the look the want or the face they want to present to the world. And let me just share this with you. I’ve had the most open interest from guys looking for treatment with me. So I know from experience they are more than happy to enhance themselves and feel better in their own skin, and why not?
PS. If you hear Gordon’s looking for new injector send him my way …..
