Thankfully, there has been a push in the last five years for more research into ageing generally, as well as gender-specific analysis of cosmetic problems and medication. So far, the evidence suggests that ageing behaves differently depending on our genes and environmental factors. People need to do more to protect themselves against ageing and preserving your beauty, but so does the medical profession.
Now with the internet-mad generation, we have plenty of photos and other various social media stories posted every day, but not all of them can be taken with some value. What we love about social media is the variety and depth of information available regarding beauty and aging, but only professionals can lead you through details on what to do properly and preserve your youthfulness.
For patients in their 20s, the skin, ears and nose is usually the main cause of concern. Moving into their 30s and 40s, people’s preoccupation shifts to the peri-orbital area. The eye region remains a key area of concern into the 50s, but the jawline also becomes a primary focal point.
When people look in the mirror, they primarily focus on the parts of their face or body they most dislike or have a desire to change. Not surprisingly, this dissatisfaction is the strongest motivation for seeking aesthetic treatments.
Majority of us have a tendency to hold in our memory the features of ourselves in our 20s or 30s and we automatically compare our appearance to that period of a younger looking face or body.
However, majority of patients aren’t taking real action against ageing because they don’t see ageing as something affecting them immediately. But women tend to know their bodies so if they think there is something wrong with their appearance but can’t quite explain what it is, they should trust their instinct and get it checked by a cosmetic doctor.
Prevention of ageing is the key issue. The bond and trust between a patient and cosmetic doctor, which usually develops following a few visits, is very important. The doctor should treat his/her patients as a personal friend who is seeking honest advice or treatment on a regular basis – similar to the bond between a trusted hairdresser and client or beautician and client.
Dr. Roberts understands why patients are seeking treatment, and also ensures that you have a realistic understanding of aesthetic outcomes. Please remember that your beauty and your eyes reflect your personality.
