Botox is a cosmetic procedure in which anti-wrinkle injections remove signs of ageing from patients’ faces. While in the past it’s commonly been used by celebrities, these days more men and women are turning to the treatment than ever before. Why? Well, the technique is proven to take years off people’s appearance and leave them looking vibrant and youthful. However, the procedure is about much more than just aesthetics. With this in mind, here are three hidden benefits to Botox.
Individuals who receive botulinum toxin injections are liable to receive a boost to their self-esteem once the effects take hold. This ability to feel more comfortable in one’s own skin can lead to increased mental health, a more sociable attitude, a new sense of confidence and a willingness to try new things. Essentially, Botox removes the daily anguish of seeing a smiling face staring back at one’s self in the mirror and replaces it with a seemingly much younger version.
Women – and men for that matter – can spend years experimenting with different beauty regimes in the hope that one will shave years off their face. This can be anything from moisturisers to anti-wrinkle cream. While a few may experience some success by going down this route, others may find it an exhausting and unfruitful process. Botox is therefore a more time-effective way to appear more youthful. It can simply be used once or twice a year, with many appointments taking no longer than an hour.
In 2011, the Financial Review reported that men had begun to turn to cosmetic work in an attempt to boost their job prospects. This followed what was already a common trend where women – especially those in the entertainment industry – insisted that a surefire way to take the next step in their career was by having Botox. The likes of Ruby Wax have previously attributed their continued success to the procedure.

It can’t be denied that more and more people are setting their sights on lip fillers. The treatment has shot into the mainstream thanks to celebrities like Kylie Jenner who now flaunt their killer pout to millions of fans on Instagram. It’s quite possible that you have the following question on your mind: are lip fillers for you or just for the rich and famous? The answer is yes – there’s nothing to stop you from treating yourself to the cosmetic procedure. However, you will need to know the answers to these subsequent questions first.
How are lips ‘filled’?
Lips are filled when they are injected with hyaluronic acid. This substance gives them the glamorous plumped up look that many people desire.
How long does the treatment take?
The entire procedure can generally be done within an hour. Most doctors will spend around 20 minutes or so on the actual injections, meaning the time on either side is just preparation and precaution. The overall process isn’t totally unlike methods of wrinkle reduction, such as dermal fillers.
How long until the results appear?
Almost immediately people will be able to notice a sizeable difference in the volume of their lips. That said, the final outcome might take a few days to fully appreciate because there’ll be a small amount of swelling and bruising. Overall, it’s a similar timeframe to those who have had Botox.
Is the treatment permanent?
Lip fillers typically last for around six months. From this point onwards patients are welcome to top up their pout.
What’s the long-term effect?
Much like other cosmetic procedures, lip fillers should leave people feeling more comfortable in their own skin. Similarly to hyperhidrosis (which prevents people sweating), the procedure ensures that patients can go about day-to-day life with a smile on their face.
Do men have lip fillers?
Yes! The treatment works for anyone regardless of gender.
