Here comes the - botox - bride
Skin experts say botox brides are definitely the trend.
According to a survey conducted by a leading matrimonial site, 65 per cent of girls in the city are not in a hurry to get married. Of them, almost half, about 45 per cent, go for botox treatment, say industry insiders.
"Everyone is conscious about their skin and appearance and it leads to a huge demand for bridal botox treatments. Women plan their wedding and cosmetic treatments well in advance with the help of experts. They do a botox trial run about three-four months ahead of the wedding day," Delhi-based cosmetic dermatologist Vandana Chatrath told IANS.
Usually, brides-to-be opt for botox treatment to get rid of frown lines, crow's feet, eyebrow shaping, face contouring and the most embarrassing problem - excessive underarm sweating.
Said Rashmi Shetty, a cosmetic physician based in Mumbai: "The most popular botox treatment among brides is treatment for hyperhidrosis (controlling excessive sweating). No bride wants to don a sweaty patch under her armpit especially on her wedding day and in her wedding pictures."
The second most popular treatment, she said, is brow lift as it "leaves you with desirable arch and gives you a lively and happy look".
