More Irish men than ever before are opting for Botox in order to compete on a more even playing field with younger candidates in the job market. Botox is the cosmetic treatment of choice for older men looking for work and attending interviews, with solicitors and accountants topping the list of those enquiring about the procedure. Experts in the industry believe that there is a direct correlation between a tough employment market and the increase in the number of older men looking into anti-ageing procedures. This revelation supports the latest figures released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which revealed an increase in younger men opting for procedures such as male chest reduction, and older men choosing facelifts and Botox. Cosmetic surgery clinics in Ireland are currently unregulated but those in the industry say they would welcome the same strict regulations in Ireland as govern UK clinics.
