When it comes to the fine lines and wrinkles that come along with ageing, more men than ever are opting for anti-wrinkle injections. Will you give it a shot?
WOMEN HAVE LONG been held to a higher ageing standard than males, but it appears as though that gap may be closing. According to a new study in the journal Cosmetic Dermatology, the number of men getting anti-wrinkle injections; to relax the facial muscles to minimize lines and wrinkles, has skyrocketed 258 per cent over the past decade. So What gives?
Most males are much more open and proactive about their appearance. Males who have tried anti-wrinkle injections look better, feel better, and believe it gives them a competitive edge. There’s also less of a stigma associated with cosmetic procedures nowadays.
So what accounts for this huge shift? Well, metro sexuality and a quick fix with no downtime for starters, but it appears as though the economy is a major factor too. Men feel increasingly pressured to maintain a more attractive and youthful look in a highly competitive job market.
The study points out that a youthful appearance allows men—and women—to generate more revenue than their older looking peers, which is an important asset in a leaner workforce. And if you are out of work, it can give you an edge in finding a new job.
