Reports show that women are getting more and more anxious about ageing – the average woman reckons she has spotted her first wrinkle by 29. A poll of 2000 women by a UK-based skincare company, showed top concerns of females at this age to be: facial hair, wrinkly cleavage, double chins, thinning lips and their bottoms ‘heading south’. Women are becoming increasingly inclined to take evasive measures to seek quick-fix solutions.
Don’t make sudden choices to go under the knife. If you are anxious about ageing you should get clued up on surgical and non-surgical measures and all the available options to deal with your aims and concerns. There are many avenues you can explore including natural, dietary and non-surgical procedures, which are a lower-risk solution.
Dr. Dayal Mukherjee, director and lead clinician of The Aura Clinic London, warns that younger consumers especially, need to know the pros and cons of surgical measures: “I have indeed seen people in their late 20′s with concerns about early age lines, although most female patients I see below age 30 seek either lip or cheek enhancement. Prior to treatment I always try to advise these patients well on the pros and cons and the fact that there will be an ongoing need. Most accept this and are relatively well-informed to start with. Preventative Botox is a bit of a myth and can mislead young people, because if you stop having Botox, wrinkles will eventually reappear, although studies have shown that Botox is required less frequently as time goes by.”
The benefits of non-invasive procedures are that they can indeed prevent or significantly delay the need for surgery by keeping the face well rejuvenated, without needing a general anaesthetic. There are lower risks, lower pain, and lower down-time with such treatments compared to surgery, at most taking an hour of your time. Furthermore, Botox and dermal fillers are usually reversible, should this be required or desired.
So, if you are considering treatment, look at all the options available and seek guidance from a qualified aesthetic surgeon or physician.
