Why live with what you don’t like about yourself?

This is a question that many people ask themselves, and it comes up against firm resistance on the odd occasion. On the one hand, you have the standpoint that you should grow old gracefully, accepting your flaws and imperfections, and sure, that’s true, but on the other hand you have the viewpoint that if something bothers you to the point of affecting your self-confidence and your standard of life, then of course you should do something about it, if there is a safe and effective way to do so.


If you’re living with unwanted body hair, excessive fat bulges which affect the way you see yourself, skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, rashes, warts, dry skin, psoriasis etc, then I’m sure if you could find a way to either eradicate these conditions completely, or reduce them significantly, then you’d do it. The good news is that no matter where you live, there are services available for you to do just that, and if you live in the Michigan area, Clarkston Dermatology are a fantastic choice, offering advanced treatments to improve the conditions that are affecting your life.


There are plentiful treatment options out there, no matter what your problem, so it’s a case of doing a little research. For instance, do you have a tattoo that you now look at and think ‘why did I do that?’, well laser tattoo removal could be the answer for you. This is something that takes a few weeks to complete, but once it’s finished, you’re back to a blank skin canvas! Lasers can also be used to treat a variety of conditions, including laser hair removal, treatment for sun damage, rosacea, acne, facial veins, and broken capillaries; the list goes on.


Have you heard of CoolSculpting? This is a relatively new treatment on the block, but one that is making huge waves. Basically if you have unwanted fat which affects the way you see yourself, such as muffin tops or bulges, this could be an option to look into. It’s worth noting that this isn’t an option to treat obesity or an alternative to liposuction, but for small annoyances, it’s a good go-to. Cool Sculpting is basically a non-surgical way to break down fat cells and smooth out imperfections, using the body’s natural processes to do just that.


I guess the point I’m trying to make is that if something is bothering you that much, to the point where it’s affecting yourself esteem and stopping you living the life you want, realistically of course, then there are options out there, and help at hand; so no, if something is bothering you that much, you shouldn’t have to live with it, provided you’re seeing things through a balanced viewpoint.
