Injectables... Yea or Nay?

I often get asked to share my opinion on injectable treatments. I have inevitably been exposed to these treatment options for some time now and have been able to gain some insight on the different types of product, and their effects seen in our skin and features. My general opinion is that these facial enhancing treatments can definitely be used to complement skin health, and when they are done correctly, can be used as a way to add volume and symmetry to our features, where volume and firmness was lost due to the natural unraveling of time, and differing ageing processes that contribute to collagen loss.

I believe that injectable treatments can add value to how we feel about ourselves, because they have a direct effect on how we look. For example: I like how my forehead looks after an anti-wrinkle treatment because my frown line is softened, my eyebrows slightly lift up, which makes my eyes look a bit wider and more open, which then accentuates my cheekbones.

But I am also aware that this pleasurable and satisfying feeling is only temporary, and when the effects start to wear off, I will probably WANT to get it done again. And I believe that the real concerns are generated from this very next step exactly.

I refer to the dark side of injectables when we start to get stuck in a vicious cycle where we just keep on adding that little bit more to feel better, and the more we do, then the less happy we actually feel, and the more we start to look like an exaggerated version of ourselves.

This happens because this external outlet only feed our egoic self, and not the deeper aspects of our beings. When our egoic self takes control of our actions, it generally tends to lead us to more suffering, as it is unable to stop, and does not have the capacity to give us what we need to find sustainable happiness.

It is important to seek treatment with a skilled cosmetic injector who does not play on our insecurities, to take the time to understand our own psyche, and to understand that other aspects of ourselves also need to be nurtured, heard and seen.
Skin to heart, beauty that runs deeper than the skin. ❤️🌈🙏
