Facial aesthetics are becoming vastly more popular with more and more people deciding to have a little injection here and there to highlight their features. There’s really nothing wrong with wanting to add a little extra spice to the way we look as long as it’s done for the right reason. Understanding why we want to inject a little botox Dublin here and there is crucial if we’re going to achieve results that will actually make us happy in the long term. With that in mind, here’s a little guide on the questions you should be asking yourself before opting for botox.
What Am I Trying To Achieve?
Botox is great, I think we can all agree on this, but it’s not a miracle cure for how you’re feeling about growing older or your appearance in general. Botox, at its core, will fill out fine and wrinkles and that’s it. If you’re expecting a miracle transformation, then you should perhaps look to other avenues or clock in with why you want to change your appearance so much.
Why Do I Want To Do This?
With so much being so easily accessible to us now, it’s easy to think “yes, I’ll just do it” and not take time to register why you want to do it. With any cosmetic surgery, you are making huge changes to yourself, even if they seem like small changes. Clocking in with the why is super important; you need to understand exactly why you want to do this and whether it’s something you want to do for yourself or if it’s something you want to do because you feel pressure to look a certain way.
Taking time to think about why you want to do this now is also important; you need to make sure you aren’t jumping into something rash for external reasons such as a breakup, divorce or bereavement. When we aren’t feeling our best, it’s natural to want to lean on the things we can control in order to make ourselves feel better; this can feel good in the short term but doesn’t give a long-term solution to how we’re feeling.
How Long Have I Wanted To Do This For?
This is an extension of the question above. If you’ve wanted to do this for months or even years, then surely, you’ve likely done enough waiting and weighing up the pros and cons. However, if you decided to do this last weekend, then it could be worth taking a little more time before committing to the procedure.
Can I Afford This?
Sometimes we can decide we want to do something, do it, put it on the credit card and worry about it later. Again this is lending itself to the short term, you might feel good about it now, but the anxiety created by worrying about money might not feel so great. Take a moment and really think if you can make it cost-effective. Maybe take a few months to set money aside for it so that you can think about it for enough time and have the money ready.
