The Youthful Look You Envy May Not Be Natural After All
Do you envy the youthful look some of your girlfriends have? Research suggests that it might have less to do with naturally great skin and more to do with modern cosmetology. A little bit of probing might reveal a secret they have been guarding carefully for a while—medical cosmetic treatments. Studies show that more women are opting for injectable dermal fillers and skin rejuvenation treatments to enhance their appearance. It’s just that others around them don’t know it yet.
The age at which women are opting for these treatments is significantly younger than we would imagine or are accustomed to hearing about. In an article from Cosmopolitan magazine, the author confesses that her first brush with injectable dermal fillers was when she turned thirty. Nobody noticed the change even though she saw a dramatic difference. So, she didn’t divulge her secret. She goes to state that at the time of the revelation to the magazine’s readers, her family and fiancé were still unaware of her medical cosmetic treatments. Only a handful of her close friends knew her secret.
Although this may seem like a not-so-common occurrence, a survey by Transform, a large cosmetic surgery group in Britain revealed that this is indeed the trend. Among the individuals surveyed, it was found that 72% of women who were polled kept their nonsurgical cosmetic treatments from their family and friends. The reason? They want people to perceive their look as natural. That survey is already more than 5 years old, so the numbers are certainly higher now.
Why Younger Women are Turning to Injectable Dermal Fillers
Yet another article by Cosmopolitan early this month, indicates that women as young as 19 are having injectable dermal fillers. You’re probably wondering why, because their skin certainly does not need the boost. Let’s take a look at what motivates younger women to get medical cosmetic treatments.
- Celebrities: Personalities like Kylie Jenner appear to have made a big impression on young adult women and many are choosing Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Radiesse® and other FDA-approved injectable fillers to look like her.
- Competitiveness: Women (and men) want to look younger than their friends and co-workers. They believe it gives them the edge to stand out. The relationship between appearance and self-confidence is an age-old one. People who believe they look good naturally feel better about themselves.
- Ubiquity: Most people would love to turn back the clock and erase the effects of aging. Many are willing to try medical cosmetic treatments to enjoy that “forever young” appearance. After all, who wouldn’t want to be frozen in time and looking eternally young?
