The Brotox Decade: Use of Botox Cosmetic by Men Increases 258% Over 10 Years

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - Jun 12, 2012) - According the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the use of Botox Cosmetic by men skyrocketed between 2000 and 2010 -- up 258%. Furthermore, Botox Cosmetic was the most popular cosmetic treatment chosen by men in 2010 -- beating both hair restoration and liposuction -- treatments historically more popular among the male population. At Naficy Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center, men make up close to 20% of our patient population.

Males make up a small percentage of the overall market for cosmetic surgery and enhancement, but the statistics are changing. The rapid increase in Botox usage is a bellwether for increasing male interest and participation in cosmetically enhancing their appearance.

Botox Cosmetic works by relaxing the muscles that create dynamic wrinkling of the skin on the face.
