The popularity of Botox is on the rise for men
Women still dominate the market for cosmetic procedures, but the number of men getting work done is trending upward. Botox and other botulinum toxin injections like Dysport and Xeomin are some of the most popular anti-aging methods for men.
Some factors that may be contributing to the increased popularity of Botox among men include:
- Workplace competitiveness. Many men report being motivated to get Botox to maintain their competitiveness against their younger co-workers. Many people feel that keeping a youthful appearance helps them fight against ageism in the workplace.
- Social media. The rise of social media and online dating apps may also be a motivating factor for some men who want to look their best for their online profiles.
- Encouragement from significant other. Some men may be motivated to get cosmetic procedures for their significant other.
PRP Hair Restoration
How Does PRP Work for Hair & Skin?
The way PRP works to restore hair is a 3-step process. First, your blood is drawn, typically from your arm as with many other medical tests or procedures. Next, the blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the components—blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and platelet-rich plasma—for the PRP extraction. Last, we inject the extracted PRP into your scalp where your hair is thinning.
Growth factors in the PRP begin to take over. Stem cells are stimulated to reverse any miniaturization of existing hair follicles. The hair you have is encouraged to maintain robust growth. PRP also promotes new follicles to form by increasing collagen and keratin production, which is the building block of the hair cuticle. The results are thicker hairs, an increase in the number of hair follicles, and improved blood flow for a more fertile scalp for the hair to continue to grow.
