Botox is a treatment used to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and is popular among older women. However, a Washington D.C. doctor recently reported to Lipstick.com that her big money clients aren’t just celebrities and movie stars, but also politicians, presidential candidates, and other important political figures. And a large majority of them are male.
”Male politicians, lobbyists, and lawyers — and the treatments that are popular with them — are the same as those for women in smaller doses,” says founder and director of Capital Laser and Skin Care, Elizabeth Tanzi. Tanzi boasts a large client base, of which more than 20% are male. Many of her customers are important figures in the political world.
When a man is over the age of 50, they can start to lose volume in the face. This can give them a permanent look of fatigue. This makes men great candidates for Botox, which can add lift to a tired face.
“The refreshed look starts immediately with filler application to address volume loss or lines of facial expression,” says Dr. Janis P. Campbell, Dermatologist, Laser Rejuvenation Clinic & Spa of Calgary. “Botox begins to work within days. The process of application for both takes minutes and is very comfortable.”
Many of Dr. Tanzi’s clients go to her because of her ability to keep total discretion for her more famous clients. To avoid detection, Dr. Tanzi’s office features a discreet entrance for important customers who desire Botox treatments, so they can sneak in undetected.
Tanzi says that the most popular treatments for older, male politicians are fillers, Botox, and a special laser known as the Clear + Brilliant. She says that all three can be done at the same time, and the combination takes little recovery. That means that the politicians can be ready to stand in front of the camera within one or two days, if not sooner.
”Lasers help brighten the skin and give it a healthy, warm glow. Fillers, used conservatively, soften and refresh a tired, travel-worn expression,” explained Tanzi.
