Youth equals beauty. When those creasing signs start to show on your face, it can have a devastating effect on your self-esteem. It is only natural to want to retain what we once had, and we try to hold onto it with all our might because looking old often takes away our sense of purpose in the world. Though philosophers may scorn this shallow thinking, it resonates deeply in our society.
And since the fountain of youth has yet to be discovered, is it so bad to want to look and feel good?
One obstacle, however, may be preventing you from going the surgical or botulinum toxin route, that is:is it safe?
Here are the facts that clearly point out the safety of anti-wrinkle treatments:
- Tried and tested
The B-Toxin drug has been around for decades and has been used in other procedures such as for the treatment of headaches. Furthermore, it was officially approved in 2002 by the American Food and Drug Administration for the use as an effective and safe anti-aging drug.
- Licenced product
In Australia, it was confirmed by the president of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Geoff Lynns, in which it was clearly stated that injected neuro-toxins are safe. However, he did warn that you must ensure the clinic you visit to smoothen your lines is a licenced practitioner.
For the ASPS to go ahead and make such a statement must be proof enough that such treatments – performed of course by a trained, licenced practitioner using approved products –are perfectly safe.
When we write “painless”, we mean virtually painless. It feels like an ant bite at most, and when done by a professional, licenced practitioner, it can be genuinely painless. It depends on the experience of the doctor injecting you. Still, compared with other forms of surgical treatments to improve ageing signs, a little prick of the injection is nothing indeed. Furthermore, the results and the joy you will feel after the procedure helps you forget the minimal pain you experienced during the treatment.
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look and feel young, despite your age. If you’re not ready to accept the signs of ageing, get in touch with the team of experienced skin care professionals at Victorian Dermal Group.
