Yep. Sitting down eating dinner and watching Special Report on FNC. On comes a commercial for Botox for men. They have these metrosexuals on the ad of various ages.

Just turn in your man cards. Oh that's right - they gave those up years ago.

Yep.

Supposedly "men's beauty" products and services is a booming industry. In fact, a men's beauty salon recently opened in my town.

My son uses some kind of gel in his hair, but apart from that I don't know any guy who uses men's beauty products.

I saw a article on a investment site about this. IIRC some patent is expiring in a couple years and the company is making an effort to dominate the "Botox" branded treatment for men before a bunch of off brands can get a foothold on the expected to boom male market.

The same kind of "man" who gets hair plugs, or spray tans, or calf implants (yeah it's a thing), or any of the other men's vanity treatments that have been booming lately.

It seems odd that these products are even marketed to men.

I think I know someone who fits the bill. I actually went to high school with him. I come across him from time to time; he still thinks of himself a being a 'player', despite having nearly six decades of wear and tear behind him. Gold chains, designer clothes, droptop Benz, maybe even a bit of time under the knife...THAT kind of guy. Trying to make himself look younger, and shockingly he conceals his age quite well. I remember him have a bigger nose as a teen, but even I admit he's looking pretty good for someone who's about to be a sexagenarian. Still it's rather disturbing to see him with some girl half his age if not more, painting himself as some kind of sugar daddy. He's done quite well for himself financially so if he want to paint himself as a fool, who am I to protest?

I met a guy in his fifties recently who apparently had some sort of hair plug or hair transplant procedure done when his hairline was first receding. I think if he had it all to do over again, he would’ve passed on it, because he’s got this inch or two ring of doll-hair where his hairline used to be, and the whole top center of his head is smooth and shiny. It’s... awkwardly obvious, and has earned him the nickname “Friar Tuck” behind his back.

In 15/20 years, the manbun, skinny jeans, gauged ears, Botox and guyliner crowd is gonna look like this:


Don’t be a pussy. Age naturally.

Never saw an ad on TV as I don't own one but a few years ago my daughter had surgery on her right ear as she was missing a piece of cartilage from birth. Wasn't that bad but her ear stuck out a bit.
As I was sitting in the waiting room(plastic surgeon office), I started looking at some magazines and other stuff.
Botox pamphlet and had men in it as well as women. I just shook my head.
I'm no male model and I never will be. I'll be 51 this year and my hair line has receded, a good bit of gray has set in and I'm generally getting older. I'm just gonna roll with it.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

I may consider getting it done.

On my balls.


Do I still turn in my card or do I get a bigger one?

A thirty-year old man worried about smile lines? Really? I guess I'd feel the same about a woman. Quit being so self-centered and do something for someone else.

Age is a factor in the hiring process of many companies. Imagine you're a man that was laid off after 40 years in a career as a top pharmaceutical salesman due to your company being bought out. You are now out interviewing for the 3 available jobs in a 5 state area in your area of expertise. Your competing applicants are 1/3 your age. Your recruiter will tell you that ageism is going to be a problem. No one will admit it on the hiring side but it is. Advice - color your hair so the grey is out. Go clean shaven - no facial hair. If you have a lot of wrinkles consider botox. Improve your odds by looking younger. May not need it depending upon the person or career but who knows if may affect the job interview with the 30 yr old manager.

True in that situation, but the commercial shows younger “men” getting it done for vanity.
