New "it" gift for men: Bro-tox?

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Move over ties and gadgets -- this year one of the hottest gifts for men is Botox. More and more men are getting the cosmetic procedure done.

"Bro-tox" is getting so popular some clinics are having Black Friday deals on Botox. And it's not just for women -- lots of men are trying it out.

So many men are getting Botox it's now being called Bro-tox. Last year more than 300,000 men got Brotoxed, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgery.

"I've had big guys come in that don't look like they would give their looks a second thought but they do," says Eva Estes of Suddenly Slimmer.

Estes has never had so many male clients. They all come in for different reasons.

"You know the job market being what it is, people are having a hard time getting a job, they're competing against a younger generation."

Even the younger men are getting Bro-tox to prevent wrinkles.

"I was starting to have some really severe frown lines in here," says customer Ian Bowman.

Unlike most men, Ian Bowman isn't embarrassed to get Brotoxed on camera. He gets a deal because he works at Suddenly Slimmer.

"I started noticing a lot of my friends got it done too so I'll hop on the bandwagon."

Suddenly Slimmer has a Black Friday deal on Bro-tox. They say Bro-tox is a great gift considering the average Botox appointment can cost $200 to $300.

In 10 years, the number of men using Botox increased more than 200 percent.
