Have you experienced Botox shaming?
In a society where the idea of “My body, my choice” is so prevalent, surprisingly the idea of Botox is still a bit of a faux pas.
Why do we shame those who decide to have Botox?
Generally, people are judging Botox and the people who use it by “reality” TV shows or viral photos of ones who have bad Botox; these are extreme cases and shouldn’t be the bar that Botox is judged on.
Typically when a patient has good Botox, other than their appearance looking more refreshed and relaxed, it is hard for onlookers to tell if they have had injections or not.
Another argument some have is that they feel those who turn to Botox are neglecting their natural beauty.
The truth is….Botox is a popular product that has helped millions to feel more comfortable in their own skin.
As we age, noticeable changes start to take affect with one’s appearance. Our hair starts to turn grey, wrinkles and fine lines start to appear and we lose bone. As these changes start to become more noticeable this can start to discourage a person and they can feel insecure about how they look. The natural response is to remedy these signs of aging.
Botox is a safe product. It is neuromodulator that relaxes overactive muscles that cause wrinkles to appear, typically when we smile, frown or squint. It can be injected to treat frown lines, gummy smile, TMJ, facial slimming, wrinkles, chin dimpling and so on
Whether a patient wants to look younger or simply wants to look refreshed; Botox can help.
Our physical appearance can have a high impact on how we feel. Botox allows one to feel beautiful, young and positive about how they look. Patients can be as they see themselves beautiful and full of life.
