There’s no getting around the fact that we live in an image- (and youth-) obsessed society. Fine lines and wrinkles are among the first signs of aging, and can start to develop as early as your 20s and 30s depending on factors like your lifestyle, genetics, and where you live and work. The good news is there have never been more options available to help manage the aging process (at every age).
At The Women’s Center at Life Point Medical, our nurse practitioner, Monique Petteys, and our team offer cosmetic and women’s health and wellness services at our clinic in Clayton, Georgia.
Emotional benefits of wrinkle-smoothing treatments
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as the old saying goes, and everyone invests in cosmetic and wellness treatments for their own reasons. If you’ve started to notice the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or have been living with them for some time, wrinkle-smoothing treatments like Botox® and Xeomin® offer a number of personal and professional benefits.
Injectables like Botox and Xeomin are minimally invasive, and will smooth your wrinkles without dramatically altering your appearance. But as we all know, it’s possible to look great and still deal with feelings of inadequacy or insecurity.
Here are a few of the emotional benefits you can typically expect from investing in your appearance with wrinkle-smoothing and other wellness treatments:
Boost your self-esteem
Even minor imperfections can affect confidence and self-esteem, interfering with everything from going out and enjoying a night with friends to pursuing professional opportunities. For example, if you find yourself trying not to smile to prevent your crow’s feet or wrinkles in your forehead from showing, Botox injections might be a good option for you.
Look and feel your best at every age
Everyone ages at their own pace, and you can invest in wrinkle-smoothing treatments whenever it feels right for you, whether you’re in your 30s or your 60s!
Feel more confident at work
Unfortunately, ageism in the workplace is still a very common problem. Many people invest in wrinkle-smoothing treatments like Botox and Xeomin to look more polished at work and to exude an air of competence and confidence. Aging is a normal part of life, and cosmetic treatments can help you to embrace and feel good about yourself at every age and stage of your life.
If that’s not enough, recent studies have shown a relationship between Botox and alleviating symptoms of depression.
It’s never too late (or too early) to invest in your appearance and overall wellness. For more information about wrinkle-smoothing treatments and the cosmetic and wellness services we offer at The Women’s Center at Life Point Medical, call or message us today to schedule an appointment.
