There’s been a lot of discussion in print, broadcast and online about the effects that social media has had on the growth of cosmetic procedures. It seems that since we’re taking (and sharing) a lot more photos, we are more aware of our appearance flaws. Plus, we’re smiling and making various facial expressions for photos more often than at any time in history, and we all know that using our facial muscles is part of what causes wrinkles.
Luckily, we are also hearing and reading about the many procedures available that can help us look better — in pics and person. But all that exposure to information can be stressful, and stress takes a toll on the skin, further driving up our interest in anti-aging treatments. And for those of us who are spending more time than ever accessing information on our phones, we may be squinting to read it, which contributes to lines around the eyes.
It might seem like a vicious cycle, but Botox can be a solution, custom made for times like these.
