Filters Provoke Cosmetic Treatments
As humans, we are wired to compare ourselves. Have you experienced innocent tweaking leading to self-harm and self-destructive perspectives? Have you compared yourself to others you see on social media, influencers, and celebrities?
When scrolling through social media, turning magazine pages, or watching television shows or movies, we need to remember that what we idolize may be a false body ideal that is not what the person actually looks like if you met them in real life (IRL).
We may turn to social media for validation and become depressed by harsh comments and few likes when we expect positive comments and thousands of likes and shares. We invite judgment from social media, a dangerous road that can lead to reinforcement of fictitious positive or negative reinforcement and various mental health concerns.
We may modify our appearance to convey a more appealing aesthetic, boost our likes, and grow our following. With the click of a button on a face and body-altering app, we can slim our jawlines, erase blemishes, alter one tone and texture, reshape our features, change the color of our eyes, whiten our teeth, and restructure our face and body.
There is an increasingly potent trend of “Snapchat dysmorphia” and getting surgery to mimic the effects of filters. Filtered selfies and the abundance of altered images and videos can inspire us to create expectations that we should naturally appear perfectly primped at all times.
Increased Interest in Medical and Cosmetic Solutions
According to 2019 data from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 72 percent of facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons have received requests for cosmetic procedures to appear better on social media — a 15 percent increase from 2018. Consequentially, there is a dramatic increase in minimally invasive procedures, such as chemical peels, neurotoxins, fillers, Sculptra, microneedling, laser, and a variety of skin treatments, especially among individuals under age 30. The rise of social media has also inspired men to prioritize their image and aesthetics.
Although there are various health benefits to nourishing our beauty from inside and out and preventing aging concerns, obsessing over our appearance and how others judge us can lead to mental health concerns. At BB aesthetic, we embrace the whole person with compassion on a case by case basis. We explore all options to achieve their goals in a physically and mentally healthly manner.
