Previous research we have commissioned has shown that low self-esteem is a factor in the decision making process when considering surgery, therefore the drastic physical alteration and confidence boost is bound to be addictive."
She continues, “Women thinking they will have Botox forever is shocking; there has to be a point that we embrace getting older and the physical changes it brings. Discovering that 1 in 5 women wish they researched better is a shock; I really want to stress the importance of knowing everything there is to know about the entire procedure before having it done.”
