In the fast-paced, technologically advanced world we live in, everyone is looking for a quick fix, especially when it comes to their appearances. More and more people are opting to go under the knife to keep up with the Joneses. According to the TIME magazine article titled “Nip. Tuck. Or Else,” doctors performed a staggering 15 million cosmetic surgeries in the United States in 2014—up 13 percent from 2011. And, according to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, more than half of people are considering aesthetic treatments. The numbers continue to rise.
There are a variety of reasons people choose to undergo invasive cosmetic procedures, yet one driving factor is it’s just more socially acceptable to get work done now than it was a decade ago, with people posting selfies and recommendations for doctors online. Another factor: Women don’t want others to think they aren’t “taking care of themselves” if they start to show signs of natural aging.
Despite the popular trend, it’s not always necessary to go to such extremes to look younger. For those who prefer to skip the surgery and painful injections, there are products and tools that can dramatically transform your skin without requiring you to set foot inside a doctor’s office. If you’re obsessing over pesky crow’s feet, for example, you can try REDEFINE ACUTE CARE for Expression Lines with line-defying peptides and hyaluronic acid and achieve younger-looking skin in just four weeks.
Whatever your motivation to improve your appearance, it’s never too late to discover a more youthful-looking you. Comment below to tell us your approach to aging gracefully.
