Why Do Women Really Get Botox? Not Because They’re Trying to Look Younger

Liz Spikol at The Philly Post recently wrote a thought-provoking article on why women have Botox and other facial rejuvenation procedures. It’s not, as many might think, merely to look younger. In fact, Spikol says, women have Botox because they want to look familiar.

It all stems from the transition that women make in their forties. Until early middle age, Spikol says, women tend to look the same as they did during their college years. During this time of early adulthood, women come into their own as adults. They become accustomed to looking a certain way. As a result, this look of early adulthood becomes an important part of their identities.

Nowadays, women are especially aware of different aspects of their bodies, in part because of the proliferation of beauty magazines:

“A lot of women in this culture know their faces and hands and hip bones and knee caps and every other body part intimately, particularly if they believe those parts are flawed. When a magazine has special sections devoted to individual body types, face shapes or hair type, we women know exactly which pages to look at. ‘Oh, that’s me—combination skin!’”


Facelift or Fillers: What’s the Difference?

Which is better: facelift surgery or injectable fillers? It’s a difficult question. Each of these procedures has its own pros and cons, and finding which procedure is right for you will depend on your individual needs and priorities.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and ArteFill can be administered through simple injections. They are generally best for adding volume in specific locations on your face, such as thin lips and hollow cheeks, as well as filling out wrinkles.

PROS: These injections can be administered during the course of a lunch break, and involve no downtime, so that you can return to your daytime routine immediately. There are a few risks, and side effects are mild and temporary. As well, dermal fillers are inexpensive compared to other procedures.

CONS: Dermal fillers are unable to tighten the skin or add support to the underlying tissues of the face. Restylane and Juvederm are temporary and may last up to a year. However, ArteFill provides permanent results, thanks to its ability to stimulate the production of collagen in the body.of collagen in the body.


Is There a Best Age for a Facelift?

When is the best age to have facelift surgery? It’s a tricky question, since most facelifts are between the ages of 40–60, and many people choose to have their procedures at other times of life. A conversation between cosmetic surgeons on shows that there are many differing opinions on the subject.

In fact, most cosmetic surgeons agree that there is no “best age” for facelift surgery in general. However, there is a best age for your individual procedure, which will depend on factors such as genes, lifestyle, and personal priorities.

When considering facelift surgery, you should consider:

whether sagging skin, deep folds, or significant wrinkling have begun to develop on your face
when these signs of aging begin to appear in your family
whether you want your surgical results to be apparent to others

Benefits of an Earlier Facelift
Having a facelift earlier in life is often preferable to waiting for significant signs of aging to appear on the face.

It allows for a smaller procedure, such as a “mini facelift,” which entails shorter incisions and a shorter recovery time.
