As much as we tell ourselves that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and our unique perceptions and preference, the truth is, we define beauty by science and psychology.
There are some variations in preferences from one person to the next but, overall, biological and psychosocial markers dictate our beauty preference.
Cosmetic and plastic surgery directly accelerate the evolution of beauty. Whatever the current psychological and social beauty trends are, as more people use cosmetic procedures to achieve current beauty trends, they are popularized, customized, and evolved.
While psychology influences our perception of beauty, beauty also affects our psychology. Today, we dive into what makes us define beauty, laser resurfacing, like broadband laser treatments, as well as other cosmetic lasers, help fight deep wrinkles and signs of aging.
The Effects of Beauty on Others
We are programmed to respond to beauty. Researchers at the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University ran MRI studies to explore the phenomenon of how we process beauty. By presenting beauty stimuli to patients while in an MRI machine, we can monitor brain activity and see how these images stimulate or alter the patient’s psychology.
The results show that neural activity is directly linked to facial attractiveness, showing the real science behind first-impressions!
When presented with a beautiful face, the viewer responds more positively. They pay more attention and are more likely to associate positive words and phrases. These results remain valid for both men and women.
The study also found that we, regardless of gender or sexual preference, perceive women’s beauty with greater scrutiny.
We also need minimal visual information to identify beautiful or attractive faces. Even one single positive indicator has an immediate and lasting effect on how the viewer perceives a person. In contrast, a single negative cue (ex. asymmetry, a blemish or lesion) results in a negative perception.
In short, it is human nature to judge a book by its cover.
Lasers Resurfacing and Beauty
The introduction of the internet has accelerated progression and changes in human activity, socialization, and how businesses run. The introduction of cosmetic laser therapies has had a similar effect on the evolution of beauty.
Laser technology is rapidly evolving, allowing us to create significant improvements in beauty procedure’s capabilities. Laser treatments have redefined the beauty marketplace. They can offer faster, more meaningful results than many past treatments, and all without surgical intervention.
As a result, many beauty trends are more appealing and accessible than ever before, further perpetuating the beauty cycle of trend adoption and advances.
Today, cosmetic lasers make it possible for anyone to have healthy, youthful-looking skin. Laser skin resurfacing removes wrinkles effectively, without the need for a facelift. Lasers remove even deep wrinkles, with noticeable results in a single treatment.
Micro laser peels rejuvenate the skin, removing dead or dying outer layers of skin cells so that new layers emerge. At the same time, the treatment stimulates collagen production, adding firmness and elasticity to the skin.
In the past many cosmetic skin lesions, like cysts, were left on the skin. If the growth presents no risk, doctors often advise against surgical removal due to the possible risk of infection. However, using lasers for cosmetic lesion removal resolves this issue with little recovery time or side effects. From rosacea scars, skin tags, to cold sores, doctors may now remove many lesions with non-invasive laser treatments.
