In keeping oneself beautiful, there are a number of different things to consider. However, one that seems to give many women the most trouble, particularly as they begin to age noticeably, is keeping facial wrinkles away.
Many women go to great lengths to cover up or smooth over their wrinkles with makeup; however, this is clearly a bit of a tedious solution, as well as one that must be repeated consistently. For a more permanent solution, many women turn to minor plastic surgeries, some of which can be read about on websites such as About Plastic Surgery. There are two main procedures that can be useful for reducing or getting rid of wrinkles:
A botox injection is specifically designed to flatten out facial skin and reduce the appearance of aging by eliminating wrinkles. Basically, here is how it works: wrinkles, though they seem to be little more than sagging skin, occur as a result of the activity of small muscles beneath the skin surface. Botox basically goes after these tiny muscles, affecting them so that they “tense up,” resulting in a more flattened facial appearance. The only problem with this process is that you can occasionally lose some small amounts of muscle activity (resulting in not being able to lift your eyelids, for example).
Collagen injections take a different approach toward accomplishing the same goal as a botox injection. Essentially, if you have a collagen injection procedure, a tiny amount of fat is injected just beneath the surface of the skin… the effect of this is that the skin is stretched out to a small extent, resulting in a “flattening” and reduction of wrinkles. In some respects, this type of procedure is less risky, as well as more permanent, than a botox injection typically is.
Of course, some women may prefer to simply rely on their own abilities to keep their faces beautiful using makeup and other methods. The idea of a surgical procedure – even a simple injection – is not always appealing.
However, if you are interested in the preservation of a youthful and beautiful appearance, and you find it tedious or difficult to keep your wrinkles from being obvious or noticeable, you may want to consider these sorts of procedures. At the very least, it may be worth it to talk to a doctor or do a bit of research to see if a certain type of procedure sounds right for you.
In my case…
If I had the money to spare now, I would consider having a tummy tuck and other procedures which could help reduce the appearance of stretch marks which I have gained from my twin pregnancy (they are quite horrid considering that I gained 60 pounds then).
Now, in relation to Botox and other procedures, I believe that every woman should be committed to maintaining her beauty – relative of course to how she interprets it. I also think that although physical attractiveness is definitely NOT the only thing that counts in being beautiful, it is STILL a part of the Beauty Formula.
I want to preserve my physical beauty through natural ways for as long as I could. After two decades or so (I’m just 26 now) – if ever I get too much of those facial wrinkles and eye crows feet however, I am open to having simple surgical procedures that could help retain my physical beauty.
