It starts off quite early. In your twenties you find yourself looking in the mirror and noticing the odd wrinkle and wishing it wasn’t there. Then you start seeing bits that are sagging slightly, and spent time pulling bits about and stretching out your skin, wishing that, if only that wasn’t there you’d look so much better.
The older you get, the harder it can become to look in the mirror. Before my first Botox treatment at the age of forty-three I hated what I saw in the mirror. It was only after I had my first treatment that I began to feel better about myself. Of course, it’s important to clarify that there is nothing wrong with wrinkles and nothing wrong with ageing, but it’s how you feel about yourself that makes the difference.
It’s a big decision to decide whether or not to go for it and have your first Botox treatment, and you may be weighing up the pros and cons. There are numerous benefits of having Botox, and we are going to run through a few of these with you to help make up your mind as to whether Botox will benefit you.
Botox will boost your confidence: At least, this is what I found. There is nothing inherently wrong with wrinkles. Not on other people anyway, but I couldn’t cope with seeing them on my own face every time I looked in the mirror.
Obviously Botox did not undo the ageing process restore me to my former, glorious, eighteen year-old self but it did give me a huge boost of confidence and made me feel great.
No more migraines: Although we automatically link Botox to the reduction of wrinkles, in the USA the FDA originally approved Botox to be used as a treatment for chronic migraines. Don’t rush out to get Botox due to a few headaches, as the treatment has shown to be unsuccessful on other types of headache and migraines.
Get rid of wrinkles: This is the main reason that we all consider getting Botox and this is what our mind jumps to when we think of Botox. The treatment softens the appearance of wrinkles by limiting the movement of the muscles in your face and all of those lines that are caused by your facial expressions will be lessened dramatically.
Youthful appearance: Having fewer wrinkles around your eyes and forehead will almost instantly make you appear more youthful, and make you look more on the outside like you feel on the inside; young and full of energy and life.
Reduce Excessive Sweating: Botox can also be used to reduce excessive sweating by injecting the Botox into the area of the body where the excessive sweating occurs, whether it’s the hands, feet or armpits. This means you won’t have to be embarrassed any more when someone attempts to shake your hand.
Whatever your reasons for wanting Botox, if you’re in Belfast and considering a Botox treatment than why not book a consultation with Array Aesthetics.
