Even Children Have Wrinkes, So Don’t Sweat ItJuly 4, 2011 No Comments
Oh, perfection. We strive for it always and do anything in our grasp to remain “perfect” for as long as we possibly can. But Botox in our 20s? Woah.
The Botox craze has been booming more and more lately, with younger women joining the frenzy. I am 20 and have no worries about wrinkles yet. I’m mainly just trying to keep my delicate fair skin from getting cancer. Shouldn’t that be the main concern? Not for some.
One woman heartily believes in the idea that by starting Botox treatments early, she will be saved from future facelifts and harsher attempts to “continue to have that youthful appearance our society so values.” Tiffany Rose Goodyear is 29-years-old and started her treatments at 24 in an attempt to start her youthful reservation process.
But is it worth it?
As youthful numbers are on the rise, even plastic surgeons are bewildered by the whole craze. “If you don’t have wrinkles, why do you need to treat it?” says plastic surgeon Steve Pearlman.
Some plastic surgeons believe that having treatments more often could possibly prolong the wrinkle-free years due to the fact that treatments lessen the time muscles are being used. But if there are no wrinkles to be lessened yet, why go through the dangerous process?
Pearlman believes that if Botox is so desirable for you, wait until wrinkles actually show up on your face, and not when smiling or moving your face. Even four-year-olds have lines when they grimace. So are women desiring the perfection of a fetus or a nonexistent line-less creature? Appears so.
Our society is clearly obsessed with youthful perfection, but until some miracle drug prevents all wrinkles and cures all beauty flaws, it is best to simply take care of our skin. Eat healthy, wear sunscreen, and save the money from not getting Botox for beauty care products that will do a lot less harm but make you feel youthful. And remember: even four-year-olds have lines.
