Why Women Use BotoxPosted on June 5, 2017
When it comes to any cosmetic surgery procedure there will always be those who want to know why a person would consider such procedures. According to recent online article procedures like Botox and Dysport have become more accepted however people still remain skeptical as to why patients specifically women would choose these procedures. According to the article some people emphatically believe that women are trying desperately to hold on to use and are desperately grabbing any new idea that make that promise. However, according to the article most women who have chosen Botox injections have carefully examined the reason for choosing the procedure. Women who choose Botox have overwhelmingly said that it is not about reversing the signs of aging, or returning to their youthful look. It is more about trying to maintain their best appearance at their current age. Most agree that the changes become in your 40s 50s and 60s are likely to cause the most anxiety. Women who start using Botox in their 40s are less likely to want to necessarily look younger. Most women just want to look like they did for decades. Not like they did when they were 20. The article explains that wrinkles on the face can convey a level of experience or wisdom but they can also cause face to look unfamiliar and markedly different than it did without wrinkles. Horizontal lines on the forehead of a woman can look like a scowl and totally change the impression people have upon first glance. For obvious reasons, this can be disheartening. Women are quick to point out in the article that Botox injections are not a remedy for those who dont like their face. Women overwhelmingly have responded to numerous studies with a common theme as to the reason that they choose Botox injections. Overwhelmingly women have said that it is primarily to produce a more recognizable face when they look in the mirror. Dr. Kim helps patients understand that Botox injections are an excellent way to temporarily paralyze the muscle and minimize the lines and wrinkles on both the forehead and around the eyes. It is important for patients to prepare for their Botox injections by not taking aspirin prior to the injection. This can increase the likelihood of bruising and swelling and bleeding at the time of injection. It is important for patients to recognize that while it is critical for patients to treat each injection as a separate procedure and realize that the results and recovery time can vary, for the most part patients are able to return to work or their regular activities the same day following Botox treatments. Patients are not advised to exercise the same day following Botox or filler injections. Patients are considering Botox or other cosmetic procedure injections are encouraged to contact Dr. Kim and schedule a consultation.
