What do Simon Cowell, Gordon Ramsay and David Hasselhoff have in common?
They've all confessed to having Botox. It seems this cosmetic treatment isn't just for women: clinics across Britain have reported a rise in the number of men opting for 'Brotox'. Clinics have seen a 40 per cent increase in men having the wrinkle-busting injections last year. And one of the main reasons behind this, is the economy. Men think looking younger and healthier could enhance their career prospects, particularly in industries where staff are youthful, such as advertising.Those with job interviews might have an advantage by appearing young and energetic.' The increase in male clients might also be explained by divorce rates. 'High separation and divorce rates are bringing more men on to the market and they are willing to do anything to improve their chances. Data from our patients shows treatments such as Botox increase their confidence, mood and self-esteem. There are even clinical trials on the mood-enhancing effects of Botox. A study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology demonstrated the paralysis of the frown muscles leads to less facial feedback for negative emotions. Consequently, a negative mood is harder to maintain.' The results for facial Botox can vary and if used correctly, the treatment can give a fresh-faced, frown-free forehead. But, if not used responsibly, you may end up looking like a member of the Stallone family. Hollywood hunk George Clooney has no problem embracing old age, wrinkles and all – and surely there's something slightly sinister in turning to a drug that paralyses our natural ability to frown to boost both mood and confidence? The more robust our self-esteem, the less perceived body flaws such as wrinkles tend to affect us,' says psychologist Dr Heather Sequeira. 'And the opposite is true: the more fragile our self-esteem, the more power our perception of body flaws has over the way we assess our self-worth. Although she's not an opponent of Botox, Sequeira says if you are using it because you lack confidence, feel depressed, or perceive yourself as old, then you might have a dangerouslyunrealistic expectation about how it can improve your life. It's ten years since the US Food and Drug Administration first approved Botox for use on wrinkles; its British licence was granted three years later. Treatments start at around £150 per area and are usually repeated every four to six months. Steve Slaughter, 45, from Manchester, has been having regular injections for five years. He says this helps him keep up with younger men. 'There's a constant need to look good and when I first had Botox, I felt as though I looked healthier,' he says. After seeing my results, some of my friends have had it too. I don't think anyone can criticise a man for wanting to look and feel good about himself. Over at nationwide chain Skin clinics, medical director Dr Askari Townshend reports a 17 per cent increase in male Botox clients. 'I've got roofers and plumbers coming in to see me,' he says. 'Guys you would never imagine having this kind of treatment come in with deep frown lines and ask to look younger. Sometimes their wives have even suggested they come in. Townshend says the biggest increase in Botox he's seen in men has been to stop underarm sweating. 'City workers, bankers, senior managers, etc, don't want big damp patches under their arms when they are under pressure or negotiating a deal so they come and have Botox in their armpits,' he says. This treatment works by blocking signals from nerve endings to the sweat glands. But Sequeira says we need to accept perfection is an impossibility. 'None of us are going to have the perfect body, perfect life or perfect job,' she says. 'Believe in your own worth and stop looking for other people to validate you. Focus on the positive characteristics that define you.
"Even if you go ahead with Botox, the comedown from the realisation that it's not changed your life can leave even more confidence issues."
What is Botox?
One of the many trade names for Botulinum Toxin A, Botox can be used to treat migraine headaches, muscle spasms, sweating, urinary retention, incontinence and wrinkles. For wrinkles, tiny quantities are injected to block nerve impulses, stopping muscle contraction and temporarily softening frown lines. After a 15minute treatment, it takes around a week to work and the effects last four to six months.
