Best Botox in San Diego: Men, Image, and Botox
They say in fashion that image is everything, but that is also true of the boardroom. How we look and how we react to pressure impact how we get promoted and who gets the job. A sweaty forehead gives the impression of stress and concern. Those are negatives in a high-pressure situation. Botox can help.
An article that appeared in Psychology Today talks about how good looks helps people get promoted or hired. Looks matter in the world of business. Is that why men are opting for Botox? It turns out that looking better at work is part of the reason men opt for cosmetic procedures. We often think about the words young, vital, capable and powerful to describe good-looking people.
Boardrooms are stressful. Whether you are pitching ideas, defending lagging sales, or having to out-maneuver a rival, the boardroom is tough, and people sweat. Sweat is considered a sign of weakness and as that commercial goes, ‘never let them see you sweat. Botox can keep your forehead from perspiring and makes you seem like you are the picture of tranquility in the boardroom.
Botox and Its Many Benefits
According to the 2015 Plastic Surgery Statistic Report, Botox is by far the most popular of minimally invasive procedures. There were 9.3 million Botox procedures performed in 2015 followed by soft tissue fillers at 2.2 million. Men accounted for about one million minimally invasive procedures such as Botox.
Botox for men can temporarily relax muscles that can create a wrinkle free face but also temporarily slow down the sweat glands in the area treated. In stressful situations, when we worry, or when we are nervous or angry, we sweat. In the boardroom all of those conditions apply, and men sweat. Botox stops the sweating process in treatment areas. It works by relaxing the nerve impulse to the sweat glands. Without the notice from the brain to start sweating, the sweat glands remain inactive, and you remain dry. The benefit of Botox for sweating is that you appear more in control, and by the end of the day you don’t smell like you’ve been to the gym.
By injecting Botox into the middle layer of skin, we can relax the apocrine glands that produce sweat. The target areas are usually along the scalp, armpits, hands and feet. Our body uses sweat to cool itself off. That is why when we become emotional — nervous, upset, or angry — we start to sweat. Under those conditions our body heat rises. One common concern from men who are considering Botox treatment is overheating. As it turns out, this is not usually a problem as the rest of your body can sweat and cool off your body. In short, Botox works to stop sweat production in treatment areas and it does so without affecting the body’s ability to cool itself. Turning off the sweat is that easy. The treatment typically lasts 3-4 months but for some possibly longer with repeat treatment.
