Statistics released by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) show that the top five nonsurgical procedures performed in 2014 included Hyaluronic Acid (dermal fillers) and Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX®). Over the past five years, statistics indicate that men are now taking advantage of cosmetic and aesthetic surgery with an increase of more than 40 percent.

Since 2010, the number of men having non-surgical procedures has increased substantially:
- BOTOX® – an increase of 84 percent
- Dermal fillers – an increase of 94 percent
2014 Statistics for men and women:

Benefits of Injectables
Injectables offer patients a quick solution to unsightly wrinkles with essentially no downtime.
- Patients usually tolerate these injections well because they are not painful and only cause a slight stinging sensation. This sensation subsides.
- Results can be seen right away.
- Regularly scheduled follow-up appointments allow patients to maintain a youthful appearance.
Dr. Charles Dietzek is a cosmetic doctor who uses this purified form of botulinum toxin to paralyze specific muscles in the face. He targets the muscles that create wrinkles when they contract. He frequently uses BOTOX® to treat the outer eye area, the space above the nose (between the eyebrows) and for the horizontal lines across the forehead.
