Facial wrinkles can cause self-confidence issues
While we’d like to think that looks aren’t all-important, our physical appearance has been shown to be linked to confidence and self-esteem, as well as psychological well-being. While few of us aspire to win a beauty pageant, most of us want to look our best and generally feel good.
Research shows that the reasons for undergoing aesthetic procedures are often related to self-image and self-esteem. Our faces and facial expressions convey our health, age and emotions without words. Expression lines such as frowning can lead to errors, i.e. false signals about our condition. For some of us, it can potentially erode our self-esteem.
Expression lines convey our emotions
Our faces and gestures convey many things whether we like it or not. Mimic lines let others know if we’re happy about something, like when vertical frown lines appear between our eyebrows.
While our face rests, we also communicate many things about ourselves, such as our age and health. Clear skin can make us look healthy, while a dull complexion can make us look tired, unhealthy, or not getting enough fresh air and sleep.
Our skin, lines and wrinkles provide many non-verbal clues about us.
Many wrinkles are the so-called dynamic wrinkles; They occur when we express our emotions, such as when we smile. Over time and with repeated muscle contractions, these lines of expression can become permanent, leading to a mismatch between our true feelings and the way others interpret us. Persistent frown lines, for example, can make us look angry or frustrated, even when our faces are motionless.
Frown lines and other permanent lines are one of the many changes that affect the face with age. Other changes include sagging skin, facial fat loss, and osteoporosis. Studies have shown that such changes can significantly affect our mood, psychological health and feelings about ourselves.
Not surprisingly, many people use cosmetic treatments to reduce the appearance of frown lines and other expression lines and wrinkles.
Understand the psychological impact of aesthetic treatments
Studies examining the effectiveness of aesthetic treatments usually try to capture the psychological impact of treatments on patients. They measure not only the objective reduction of the area, such as frown lines, but also how patients feel after the treatment and whether the treatment has affected their self-confidence and self-esteem.
Treating expression wrinkles, especially frown lines, is often not about looking aesthetically pleasing.
Does the person feel better after the treatment of mimic lines?
A clinical study evaluating the effectiveness of frown lines treatment showed significant changes in patients’ psychological well-being after treatment. The psychological changes studied include:
– I feel fine
– I feel attractive
– I feel amazing
– I like myself
– I feel happy
– I am sure
The study thus showed that aesthetic treatments for frown lines can have a much deeper effect on us than just changing our physical appearance. Aesthetic treatments can make us feel happier and more comfortable. When frown lines (and other expression lines) diminish, we feel more confident and confident.
