I am only in my mid 30s and yet people mistake me to be somewhere between 45 and 50 years old. I guess I do not blame these people because indeed my face has aged a lot on account of the stress that I get from my work and family. I even look older than my eldest sibling who is in fact 12 years older than me. It was sometimes embarrassing not only on my part but also on the part of the people who mistook my age but I guess I only had myself to blame then because I never addressed the issue when in fact there was an available solution.
I wanted to visit a medi spa clinic but was so ashamed to do it because I felt that it was no place for men. I had the impression that medical spa clinics are only for women and are not for men. It was a good thing that a close friend of mine made me change my view on medical spa clinics and dermatologists when he brought me in one of the medical spas available in our place. I was so surprised to find out that indeed the medical spa is a place for both women and men. I realized that men have also become more conscious on the effects of aging and stress in their face and skin and are becoming proactive in preventing or reducing these undesirable effects.
It did not take me a long time before a doctor examined me and heard my concerns. I was advised that my skin had indeed undergone an advanced aging process because of stress. Since I cannot do anything about the stress I experience daily, what I can do is to undergo skin care treatments to address the wrinkles and excessive skin fold on my face. I was presented by the doctor with various treatment options that included Botox , dermal fillers, IPL and PRP.
Since I knew nothing of those treatments, I just told my doctor to give the treatment that best suits me for as long as I get the results that I desired which was to look younger or at least look right for my age.
I received botox injections and a week after it was injected to me; I noticed a significant improvement in my wrinkles. The wrinkles were no longer very obvious as it used to be. People also started teasing me that I looked younger and this really and this really made feel great and become more confident.
