The Blog D’MARGE: Australia’s ‘Brotox’ Boom Shows How Men Are Struggling In The Workplace
More and more Australian men are seeking cosmetic procedures such as Anti Wrinkle, and it’s a direct result of COVID – just not in the way you might think…
DMARGE spoke with Dr Josh Wall who explained how working from home during COVID has forced men to take a good, hard look at ourselves – quite literally, in fact. “One major outcome of the COVID pandemic has been the use of webcams for people working from home and using Zoom to interact,” says Dr Josh.
“It’s drawn attention to specific areas of the face that were previously unseen; people are seeing themselves from different angles, and those angles are not flattering. During the pandemic, the average businessman was at home comparing himself to other males, with that camera screen showing asymmetry and other facial quirks he hadn’t ever noticed until then. The ageing process and imperfections stood out like never before.”
“We have patients seeing us before a job interview – specifically for the interview – and they are driven by that reason, particularly if they are middle-aged and beyond.”
“We are seeing a huge rise in treatments that focus on masculinisation – think a strong jaw, chiselled chin and so on. Fillers can be placed in these areas to sculpt and define, so those with a soft jawline or weak chin can correct these issues and feel more masculine in their appearance.”
“There’s also such thing as non-surgical rhinoplasty. This is basically a nose job that simply uses fillers to smooth out a crooked nose shape. It’s not surgical, it’s just injections of the dermal filler. But it gives amazing results for people who have lumps and bumps or a hooked nose and want it to look more streamlined.”
