Let’s Celebrate Women: Addressing the Stigma Around Non-Surgical Procedures
In March, we celebrated International Women’s Day. After a lifetime of building careers and raising kids, it can feel somewhat strange to look in the mirror and think—uh-oh.
At times, there’s an undeniable stigma around Botox and other non-surgical procedures. Many times, we keep these treatments a secret. Why? Because we’re not sure how people will judge us. However, the fact is that not feeling good about how you look impacts your confidence.
Fortunately, as an aesthetic clinic in Vancouver, a lot of the procedures available today are safe and minimally invasive. There’s no extensive-time requirement—and most treatments are relatively cost-effective. It takes a relatively modest amount of time and investment for good, long-lasting results. All this has helped to make non-surgical treatments more accessible and reduce any reservations attached to them. For example, the Soft Lift (non-surgical facelift) has become one of the leading requests for men and women looking for a quick boost of self-esteem.
Soft Lift in Vancouver
As a mini-facelift, the aptly named Soft Lift combines neuromodulators (Botox and dermal fillers) to treat common signs of aging. Unlike a surgical facelift, which requires a considerable investment of time, recovery, the Soft Lift is a treatment that balances Botox and skin fillers to reduce wrinkles and enhance youthful contours for a fresh, youthful look.
By focussing on strategic areas around the face—cheeks, lips, jawline, and temples, Dr. Kamani artistically smooths out dynamic wrinkles and adds filler where loss of volume has occurred. There is no danger of looking overdone as she works with individual features and bone structure, determining just the right amount of product required for a look that’s fresh—never frozen.
The full procedure takes about an hour. You can return to your normal activities immediately. Any swelling is mild to moderate and typically subsides within a week of treatment.
Aesthetic treatments allow people to feel happier and more confident. Everyone’s appearance changes over time. Doing what feels right for you, choosing to invest in self-care is a choice. And isn’t that really what it’s all about?
