We’ve all heard of Botox. Nothing new about porn stars getting a nip here, escorts getting a Botox tuck there but what if the day comes when it is your own reflection staring back at you in the mirror? Where do you draw the line?
Every escort could use an edge (or two) and it is no secret that youth has a used by date. Defying age or anti-ageing can be a full time vocation for some so a little extra help goes a long way or that is the theory at least. Unfortunately the human face is not a photograph cannot be airbrushed, cropped or photo shopped. Your face is a one-time deal, a one way ticket, no refunds no re-issue but with Botox can we change the dates of travel?
If your line of work dictates that you must look if not your outright best than not too far short of fabulous it pays dividends to acquire a booster if the clock is ticking a familiar tune. Botox has become the go-to procedure for national celebrities, TV personalities, sports stars and Sydney escorts keen to prolong and project a powerful image of beauty and desirability. “She’s suddenly beautiful, we all want something beautiful, man I wish I was beautiful”, lyrics from the hit song Mr. Jones by The Counting Crows. Latest Botox procedures may take anything from 15mins to 1 x hour, a real snip at around AUS$1000 with a top clinic or beautician, be warned results are not permanent, follow-up treatments every 6-months advised.
Botox surgeries can provide a welcome touch up for a Sydney escort approaching a 30-something age crisis, for those interested in a slightly more complex makeover a facelift procedure or rhytidectomy is another option promising significant reduction in facial wrinkles, eye creases or jowl jaw lines. This surgical procedure comes at a higher cost between AUS$5,000- $10,000. Another popular alternative are Collagen treatments, for both face and or lips, to soften the appearance of laugh lines, crow’s feet wrinkles or forehead creases etc, adding fullness to lips where ageing has left signs of visible wear and tear or natural thinning. Tests for allergies recommended.
Women are not the only creatures looking for a touch of physical comfort and pampering, Bro-tox, or Men looking for a short cut to the beauty myth is becoming fairly common with many individuals reported to be spending in excess of AUS$1000 per year on clinic treatments without the kind of stigma that may have been associated with such personal life choices 5-10 years ago. Important Bro-tox rules to follow are avoid raised eyebrows, trout pout or frozen forehead. Hollywood actors who value facial expression are known to favour more sophisticated surgical procedures, radio frequency facial procedures and skin needling, affording rather more subtle results in the areas of texture, tone and tightening though not for the faint hearted. However some would agree it’s very masculine to have forehead wrinkles!
For those considering a little touch up on the quiet, it is not unheard of to keep things hush hush march on business as usual. A well-known Sydney Botox technician reveals that 60-70% of both wives and husbands do not inform the significant other of the treatment. Partners may disapprove of the selective spending or the ideology behind it. See no evil speak no evil seems to be a bullet proof method. And then you have the Sydney escort who joined the party circuit early in late teens, smoked and drank through the 20-something years, it is not uncommon that time will suddenly catch up with them and before long on Mr. Botox’s door they come a knocking!
The poet John Keats famously wrote “A thing of beauty is a joy for ever, its loveliness increases, it will never pass into nothingness”. In contrast the great Socrates penned “Beauty is a short-lived tyranny”. Neither were far off the mark. In society today the old traditions of heed, salvation and rescue live on in the hearts and minds of all those bound by the surgeon’s knife. A cut above the rest care of a little friendly neighbourhood Botox.
