4 Cosmetic Issues That Affect Your Confidence

When it comes to clothes, hair and jewellery, it’s fairly easy to make changes. One wardrobe mishap can be redeemed with the next styling effort. However, cosmetic issues are not as easy as changing outfits and can affect an individual’s self esteem for long periods of time.

In today’s globalized world, men and women from all walks of life face increasing scrutiny and insecurity regarding their personal appearance. According to a market research survey, only 11 percent of Canadians feel completely satisfied with their appearance when they look into the mirror.

That means about 1 in 5 Canadian women feel insecure about their looks. So, what are these appearance-related issues they’re worried about? We’ve compiled a list of four main cosmetic issues that affect confidence.


Wrinkles are one of the most frequently mentioned cosmetic issues. Ageing is a natural part of life, but nobody wants their skin to age sooner than their heart does. As we age, our skin becomes thin, dry and less elastic. This makes it unable to cover the facial muscles in the same way that it used to.

One way to combat wrinkles is to get injectable fillers treatment that induces collagen to help rejuvenate the skin.

Puffy eyes

Working around the clock and not getting enough sleep are sure-fire ways to introduce dark circles to your eyes. However, some people struggle to get fresh, younger looking eyes despite following time-stamped beauty regimens. People who are genetically predisposed to having dark circles can often feel insecure about their tired looking, baggy eyes.

Sagging neck and jawline

While ageing is often the most common factor for sagging skin, there are young people who may undergo this form of aesthetic faux pas. The general idea is that our skin becomes less elastic and supple looking with the breakdown of collagen inside the skin. While collagen deposits do decrease with age, certain environmental factors can also play a role.

For example, staying in direct sunlight for long periods of time can break down collagen at faster rates, hence making sagging skin prominent.

Stretch marks

Stretch marks are lines that often occur at the waist, hips or thighs. These scars develop when our skin abruptly expands and tries to readjust itself—for example, after pregnancy or during a growth spurt. These marks can be of varying colour, depending on the type of skin tone and can be a major cause of insecurity for people.

The good news is that you don’t have to live with your insecurities. If one or all of these issues is damaging your self-confidence then you can get in touch with our cosmetic treatment clinic in Calgary, AB.
