I'm turning 36 and have really hated being in photos for a couple of years - I just couldn't put my finger on why. Is this painful and lonely realization just a cruel part of life? I finally realized that while I was trying to not notice and not care that I was aging and just "age gracefully" - I really was aging and why be in denial when I could maybe do something about it. I definitely have mixed feelings - the cost is so high, it's risky, and I worry that once I start I'll start obsessing about what to fix next, rather than just being grateful for what I have. So I'm trying to tell myself "it's not what you got, but it's what you do with it" to help provide some balance, while I slowly proceed with hopefully technology boosting my self-confidence a bit. I feel like I have realistic expectations-I don't want to look like a celebrity, just like myself but a little younger.
I feel like I've done my due diligence with research and my appointment is today. I plan to get some Botox in my 11's and also some dermal filler to help lift my sagging, flattening cheeks and diminish my nasolabial folds. I would also love to try filler in my weak chin, but I think this is off-label and I'm not sure if they do this.
