Keep on smiling

It’s been hard to miss the recent story about Tess Christian, the 50-year-old woman who has refused to smile for forty years because she doesn’t want to get wrinkles. Whether this story is true or not, it has given rise to some worrying confessions from others who have similar concerns.

Here at Dr Joney De Souza Aesthetic Clinic in London, we believe that everyone should be free to express their emotions at will. And if that causes a few wrinkles, there are treatments available to deal with that!

The natural look

One of the chief reasons Ms Christian gave for her smile-free strategy to stay youthful was that it is ‘more natural than Botox‘. However, most people would consider spending forty years without smiling a pretty unnatural way to live!

At Joney De Souza Aesthetic Clinic, here in London, we are firm believers in creating a truly natural-looking result. With the judicious use of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, we believe we can make you look ten years younger without anyone suspecting a thing – and you can smile as often as you like.

Psychological benefits of Botox

Psychologists commenting on Ms Christian’s story have mentioned the negative impact that not smiling for a prolonged period can have on your emotions. In contrast, anti-wrinkle injections have actually been shown to improve your mood – by breaking the habit of frowning, you can start to feel much happier, and just a few anti-wrinkle injections can achieve this.

The power of attraction

Of course, one major flaw in Tess Christian’s plan is that a miserable face is not an attractive face. Studies have shown time and again that smiling attracts people, so if the aim of the game is to appeal to the opposite sex then the odd wrinkle here or there is less of an issue than an unsmiling face.
