Male FIFO workers take Botox – or ‘Brotox’ – when cosmetic procedures for men skyrocket

0

More men are getting Botox – or ‘brotox’ – than ever before, leading cosmetic clinicians have revealed.

Dr. Andrew Clark, a cosmetic doctor from Perth, said he sees hordes of FIFO workers coming to his clinic for cosmetic procedures such as Botox, dermal filler and laser facials to repair damage at work.

Meanwhile, esthetician of the stars Dr. Josh Wall said he has seen twice as many men coming to his clinics in Sydney for Botox in the past year, including FIFO and construction workers.

He said he notes his male patients are turning to facial dermal fillers to make their appearance more masculine and improve their facial features.

Dr. Clark said the stigma surrounding cosmetic injectables is relaxing for men, and more people are coming to his clinic to do their jobs.

“Many FIFO employees work outside in very harsh and intensely sunny conditions, causing premature signs of skin aging,” said Dr. Clark.

Sometimes it is the man’s wish to undo the damage that motivates them to book in [but] More often than not, I would say it is their partner or girlfriend who drags them to the clinic [and] they get addicted! ‘

Mr. Wall said that 15 percent of his clientele and 30 percent of the people who come to the website are male.  Pictured: Mr. Wall treats bachelor star Carlin Sterritt

Dr. Wall said the taboo around injectables was fading and that he has seen double the number of men coming through the doors for Botox and other cosmetic procedures in the past year.

“I mean, you can go to the gym, you can exercise, you can get a tan and all that stuff, but there’s not much you can do about wrinkles,” he said.

He described his male clients as alpha, career-oriented types.

“The most common male patient I get, they’re young professionals, they’re really going to get guys, and they’re just ticking everything off,” he said.

“They’re in top shape, their careers are unreal, and they just do everything they can to bring out the best version of themselves.”

Mr. Wall said that 15 percent of his clientele and 30 percent of the people who come to the website are male and believes cosmetics for men will skyrocket in the next ten years.

If we fast forward 10 years, it should be nearly 40 percent … especially in this day and age of social media [and Zoom] you are constantly aware of what you look like, ”he said.

He said men should not worry that Botox was too feminine because the product was applied according to the customer’s desired look.

Attitudes [are] definitely changing and I think if done correctly it won’t feminize you at all. You can’t really say about most good Botox jobs: people just look fresher. ‘

Former MAFS contestant Telv Williams said he was first given injectables after seeing himself on the reality show and disliked his forehead lines.

‘It was offered to me and I thought I would try it. And when I saw the results, I was quite happy with it. So I kept getting it, ‘he told Daily Mail Australia.

Mr Williams said that while his friends initially ‘failed’ him for the procedure, some of them followed suit and it has become commonplace in his social group.

“Now most of my male friends get it,” he claimed.

‘FIFO friends and many friends from Melbourne who are in the construction industry. And many guys who follow [me on social media] told me about it too. ‘

Mr. Williams will not say whether he received the treatment for free.

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Dr. Andrew Clark was a plastic surgeon.
