We live in a results-obsessed world, don’t you think? We may not like to admit it. But it seems to be human nature to want what we want now! “Show me what you got” should practically be on t-shirts everywhere. Want proof? Look no further than the 2012 Summer Olympics that are going on right now.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love the Olympics. But in the few short days that have passed since the Games began, everyone is looking at the medal count ready to make an impression about the results. “Canada only has four medals so far,” mentioned one of my friends the other day. The way I see it, there are two ways to looking at this.
One way is to compare Canada’s four medals to the 19 that first-place-overall-so-far China has. Doing that will make you look at Canada’s accomplishments over the first few days as poor. Another way to look at it is to compare the four medals to the zero that Canada had at this point during the Olympic Games in Beijing four years ago.
Doing that will make you see the improvements that the Canadian Olympians have made since the last Summer Games. What’s my point, exactly? People only remember what you have done for them lately. This is why when we take a look at our own personal appearances, we expect everything to look good now, and get frustrated when our efforts take time to pay off.
“I was hoping it would work right away,” mentioned another friend of mine who has invested quite a lot of money into skin creams lately, “But I don’t notice much of a difference.” My friend, mind you, has only been using her new skin cream for a week. In her opinion, that is a long enough duration of time to see “smoother results”.
Considering this attitude, perhaps, the quickness of long lasting results is one of the best reasons to consider Juvederm Dermal Fillers. These injections target skin areas to produce smoother, tighter and more full looking skin. Known as a wrinkle and facial line eliminator, Juvederm has truly worked wonders for those who wish to attain that younger look.
But again, the best part is that you won’t be waiting weeks to the see the results. Although some normal symptoms that include slight swelling, tenderness or redness may soon appear after receiving an injection, they subside pretty quickly. What is left is a smoother, more supple look that you don’t have to wait very long for at all.
Even better is the fact that the results generally last upwards of six to nine months. For some, results are still apparent two years later! No more worrying about facial creams that “take forever” to work. See your doctor or consult a skin care specialist to learn more about Juvéderm Dermal Fillers. You shouldn’t have to wait around forever to look younger again!
