Why Emotional Support Matters in Consulting for Surgical & Non-surgical Cosmetic Treatments?
For anyone who’s faced some troubles or changes in life, and I’m sure that’s almost every one of us, I think the one thing that we can all agree is that while it is not impossible to go through tough times and changes entirely on your own, but it definitely helps, and most of the time, significantly to have a support system. Namely emotional support.
Believe it or not, changes in life is one of the top stressors (The cause of stress, such as situations or pressures.), change of job, environment, and of course, changes in your body, be it natural or planned.
People who go through cosmetic treatments, be it surgical or non-surgical, usually have already gone through quite a lengthy process to get to the point that they’re making appointments and decisions on the treatment. We all know, or at least heard of that planning events are stressful, now, imagine planning an “event” that is happening on your very own body! Not to mention the process of making the decision to receive cosmetic treatments; while it is great to take matters into your own hands and do something about things that you are not 100% happy with yourself, the negative emotions of being unhappy with yourself can be a heavy burden on anyone.
Sure, emotional support along is unlikely to remove all the stress, but it can definitely reduce it, significantly. Why does the reduction of stress matter? Stress can cause many biological reactions, such as hair loss, acnes, and even some sleep disorders, which is very, very bad for your body’s immune system in addition to causing the lack of energy during the day.
Helping someone reduce their stress plays an important role in their overall health and well-being.
Before the treatment
There are a lot of different kinds of cosmetic procedures out there these days, a curse and a bless, some might say. Choosing the best option for something that’s going to have a direct impact on your very own body can be very stressful, and sometimes even a very analytic person can be overwhelmed by all the information and options.
The emotional support from a friend or family member can help calming things down and giving the person a clear head by listening or looking at the options and information together. After all, all the stress could lead to bad decisions or judgment that might result in a long lasting impact on the body. For example, if it’s a fat reduction surgery your friend is looking at, she or he are likely to be looking at Liposuction, one of the top five cosmetic surgeries last year.
It’s so popular because it’s effective with immediate results, but it also requires a lot of down time, there are also risks that associates with surgeries. Can your friend afford days of down times? Is your friend scared of surgeries? If that’s the case (and the stressor), perhaps Cool Sculpting is the fat reduction treatment that is more suitable for your friend, being non-invasive and requires no down time. The Cool Sculpting results are also proven to be effective.
By listening and discussing before the treatment, you might just be able to come up with a better alternative that can help your friend achieve the same goal with less stress.
During the treatment
Some treatments, such as natural supplements, take a long time to see the results, and without proper and consistent documentation, the results could even go unnoticed. Nobody likes to see their time and effort put it end up being nothing but a huge waste, and this makes a great stressor. Some encouragement here and there and make time for a little discussion about the treatment do not take much from one’s time, but it will make a huge positive impact on the person receiving the treatment.
After the treatment
For those taking the natural, non-invasive approach, a lot of times the treatment gets terminated because it didn’t work. In which case, the time, effort, money invested are just all down the drain, and if that doesn’t make a top stressor, very few things will.
For the surgical treatments takers, the post-treatment emotional support is especially important, the down time and temporary bruises will eventually fade away, but that doesn’t make the waiting process any easier, this is also when people tend to overthink and worry that something might or might have gone wrong, and the stress generated from that does not help the recovery one bit, in some extreme cases, it could even make things worse.
The emotional support
When it comes to the emotional support in cosmetic treatments, it really all comes down to reducing the stress. All of the mentioned above stressor can be reduced by some level of emotional support, sometimes even just a cup of coffee together can do wonders. The feeling of being supported, encouraged and cared for can change one’s mood dramatically and therefore reduce a great deal of stress. Remember, your one small step is one less stressor for your friend/family member![sgmb id=1]
