London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 25, 2009 -- The Harley Medical Group, the UK's largest cosmetic surgery provider, has reported an increase in professional men aged 25-30 years, having Botox across its 26 clinics, with men accounting for 20% of all Botox patients. 'Boytox' is increasingly being used as a preventative treatment by men who want to stay fresh-faced, despite living hectic lifestyles. Botox is now the second most popular non-surgical treatment with men At The Harley Medical Group.
Dr Nick Milojevic, Botox [http://www.harleymedical.co.uk/non-surgical-solutions/non-surgical-solutions-for-men/] doctor at The Harley Medical Group, said: "Young men in the City have been spending a lot of time frowning over the last year and we're seeing the fallout. Men coming into the clinics are telling us that they want to stay looking wrinkle-free despite their demanding lifestyles. Many of my younger patients opt for 'Baby Botox', a lighter variation of the treatment that uses extremely low doses of the toxin, giving a subtle and natural effect."
Botox injections are also increasingly used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) to prevent the embarrassment of slippery handshakes, underarm sweat patches and dripping brows. Botox injections freeze sweat glands to stop perspiration in the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, underarm and chest areas.
In 2008 The Harley Medical Group also saw an overall increase of 6% year on year in Botox treatments.
The group's Chairman, Mel Braham, advised that all patients ensure that their non-surgical treatment is carried out by a qualified professional. All patients at The Harley Medical Group, which has been established for over 25 years, undergo an initial consultation with a fully qualified Cosmetic Surgery Nurse Counsellor.
