Job-hunting men turning to Botox, facial fillers

According to a MarketWatch analysis of September 2010 employment data, one in four men over the age of 25 and with a college degree is without a job.

“Many men in the job market—as well as those who are employed—feel they're competing with younger workers,” says Dr. Parungao. “That's why more men are turning to cosmetic treatments to look younger and help give them an edge in the marketplace.”

Facial injectables:
Quick results, no downtime

“Especially these days, people are looking for affordable treatments with little or no downtime,” Dr. Parungao explains. “So it's not surprising that the number of cosmetic procedures for men actually increased 8% from 2008 to 2009.”

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of men's BOTOX® treatments increased 14.5%, and men's hyaluronic acid filler treatments such as Juvéderm increased 46.1% in that time.

BOTOX® Cosmetic erases worry lines

“The frown lines between my eyebrows were making me look mean,” says “Frank,” a 51-year-old financial executive who works with a lot of younger employees. “My dermatologist recommended Dr. Parungao.”

“These days, when everyone is staring at their iPhones, BlackBerries and computer screens, frown lines are becoming a problem area for more people,” says Dr. P.

“In my case, BOTOX® worked really well—and I only need to get a treatment about every nine months,” Frank says.

“It's very unusual to have results last that long,” Dr. P explains. “Typically, patients get a BOTOX® treatment about every three months. How frequently you need a treatment will depend in part on how fast your body metabolizes BOTOX®.”

Juvéderm smoothes the
nose-to-mouth ‘parentheses’

Along with his BOTOX® treatments, Frank had injections of Juvéderm, a hyaluronic acid facial filler, to smooth out the nasolabial folds from the nose to the corners of his mouth.

“Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin by retaining water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1,000 times its weight,” says Dr. P. “This helps increase the skin's volume and density for a more youthful appearance.”

“BOTOX® and Juvéderm allow me to maintain a somewhat youthful appearance,” says Frank. “It helps from a self-esteem perspective to know I'm looking more friendly than angry.”

Before and after BOTOX cosmetic treatments

Go from angry-looking  .... to looking refreshed

BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles that cause frown lines between your eyebrows and on your forehead. Result: You'll look younger, more relaxed and confident.

Ask Dr. Parungao

Are Juvéderm injections painful?

A new formulation, Juvéderm XC, makes treatments a lot more comfortable by combining Juvéderm with the local anesthetic lidocaine. This also makes treatments quicker because we don’t have to inject a local anesthetic first and wait for it to take effect before we begin your Juvéderm treatment.
