If there is one thing that I and everyone should know, it’s that things change and on a long enough timeline, everything that is possible will occur in one dimension or another. That is if you know anything about quantum physics in a theoretical sense, either way a theoretical physicist is a whole lot more intelligent than most of us, so we should depend on these kinds of people because they’re the ones who are going to save our skin when we need it most. Opinions about beauty have changed as well, many different standards exist on the planet today depending on culture and other environmental factors. But by and large, the full-figured, voluptuous women that the best artists of all time from the renaissance era were so inspired by, like Michelangelo, Raphael, Donatello and Leonardo da Vinci (The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were named after these artists, which produces an odd juxtaposition between Italian and Japanese cultures), are no longer the standard of beauty and what most people seek to attain. That’s just one way that things have changed but it’s an interesting topic for discussion for a lot of reasons, one of which is the billion dollar beauty industry that has come into existence because of society’s fixation on and desire to be beautiful. Take your pick, so many people are uncomfortable with so many things about their bodies that the available procedures that can be performed by a cosmetic surgeon, doctor or qualified technician at a medical spa, are incredibly vast.
It doesn’t matter if you’re self-conscience about your belly fat, your aged and old-looking skin, your thin and short eyelashes or what some people inconsiderately refer to as ‘cankles’, there’s a cosmetic procedure that can take care of all of these things if they bother you that much. A woman’s body, way more so than a man’s, is one of the most-objectified things on God’s green earth and although it’s not necessarily a fun thing for most, it’s unfortunately the way that it is and a part of the society that most of us reading this are surrounded by. So, if you can’t beat them, then you might as well consider joining them because fighting them might be an uphill battle that you don’t have the energy to endure. Latisse lashes, for example, is actually a topical solution applied to the skin on your eyelids where your eyelashes grow from. The FDA approved it for cosmetic use about six years ago, and it’s the only prescription solution available to those who want to improve the length, diameter and fullness of their lashes in the most natural way possible. The solution serves to stimulate the hair follicles in the eyelashes and it’s been proven, that it indeed works.
Other eyelash treatments exist as well and can be applied by a trained and certified medical aesthetician. There are cheap solutions to the eyelash riddle that involve inferior adhesive located on the underside layer of transparent peel-on and peel-off lashes that you can buy at costume shops and some salons. The better and superior solution though are what is called simply, ‘eyelash extensions’. This is a tedious and time-intensive process whereby an esthetician, with the aid of skin-safe, medical grade adhesive, applies eyelash-like fibers to each, individual eyelash. That is why it can take so long, but many women believe that it is totally worth it because if taken care of properly, they can last four to six weeks. The things that can damage them and necessitate another appointment or a ‘fill’ session sooner than you’d like, are rubbing your eyes or over exposing them to water from crying or when you shower or wash your face. They’ll naturally fall out over the course of a month to a month and a half, but it’s not something that happens all of a sudden. It’s a gradual process that is difficult to notice, much like a lot of the other changes the occur around us during our lives.
There are many more procedures that the cosmetics industry can help you with and the good thing is, most of the people who work in the occupations that can help you, do it because they have a genuine desire to assist people who want to feel better about themselves. These are the kind of people who are on the cutting, technological edge of emerging medical and aesthetic procedures, they’re also hyper-aware of the developing trends in the world of beauty as they develop. It’s okay that the world has changed and continues to all the time. We can’t really stop it, so we might as well do everything we can to be comfortable and accepting of it to a degree, so we don’t feel like we’re fighting a futile battle during our time here.
