Research Shows: Looking Good is the Key to Feeling Great
“The evidence is pretty strong that people who improve their appearance tend to feel better about themselves,” says David Sarwer, a Penn associate professor of psychology in psychiatry and surgery and one of the nation’s leading experts on physical appearance. His work centers on the relationship between cosmetic treatments, including plastic surgery, and someone’s psychological health.
He explained in a recent Penn Current interview, “Since that time, though, we’ve learned that whether we like to admit it or not, our appearance really does matter. Not only are more attractive people seen in a more favorable light, but they’re also treated more positively in a range of situations across their lifespan. That really gets right at the core concept of body image, which is kind of our view of ourselves, in our own minds.”

Like it or not, people judge one another based on appearance each day. Fear of this judgment can often lead to poor body image and low self-esteem. You have the power to create a positive body image and boost your confidence, two critical keys to psychological well-being. Westchester Cosmetic surgery and beauty treatments can play a vital role in how you perceive yourself. When you like the way you look, this translates into a sense of confidence and self-assurance.
There are many simple, minimally invasive steps you can take to improve your appearance. Skin care is a great example. Microdermabrasion rejuvenates the complexion by gently sloughing away tired, exhausted skin cells. It’s a simple way to perk up your appearance – and we’ve seen the impact it has on people’s mood be almost instantaneous. Seeing your youthful, fresh-faced self smiling back at you from the mirror elevates the spirit very effectively.
It can be discouraging to see wrinkles in your face – especially when you know it’s lots of stress that put them there! Botox and Dysport, the most popular wrinkle removers, are the perfect remedy. The use of Westchester’s favorite fillers like Juvederm, Restlylane and Perlane can fill in those deeper creases and folds. These treatments work with the body’s natural systems to gently smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. The results are natural looking and impressive: you’ll look just like you, but a younger, more energetic you. Imagine the impact that will have on your sense of self!
Erasing the damage the effects of sun and time have left on the skin can also do wonders for your self-confidence. Treatments like IPL laser sessions gently diminish the appearance of sun spots, age spots and even rosacea with little to no downtime using the application of pulsed light.
