In our current age, the cameras in our phones allow us to document with great ease the many moments of our lives. With the explosion of social media and the desire to connect with others, many people are uploading pictures of themselves to social media platforms. This is known in our society as a selfie.
One issue with selfies is the awkward angle at which these photoa are often taken. This results in strange and unflattering images of ourselves in these selfies. There are 3 cosmetic issues with our face that are often highlighted in selfies.
First is that overhead lighting and the angle at which the phone camera is held can magnify bumps and irregularities of our nose. Second is that the close position of the camera on the phone to our face can cause us to see the many pigment spots on our face. Third is that, depending on the angle at which the picture is taken, our brows can appear to crowd our upper eyelid space, making them appear heavy and tired.
Although the highlighting of these changes in our face can be distressing, thankfully there are office treatments with quick results and recovery which can help with these 3 issues.
For the crocked nose or nose with a bump seen in a selfie, a 5-minute, non-surgical injectable nose job can be a great option to make a nose straighter. For faces with sun spots, Broad Based light treatments can clear the red and brown spots in an office setting, revealing a clearer complexion underneath. Finally, for people with low eyebrows crowding the eyelid space, a Botox Browlift is a great option to raise the brows and show off the beautiful platform of the upper lid.
Although selfies can highlight for us facial changes we often don’t want to see, thankfully many options exist to help improve those changes for the better.
