Think you can easily pop into your favorite med spa on your lunch break and grab a sneaky anti-aging treatment without your partner knowing? Whether it’s the money you don’t want them to know about or the simple fact that you’re using a cheat code to unlock graceful aging, you wouldn’t be alone in thinking about “forgetting” to fill them in.

Popularly referred to as “cosmetic infidelity,” the practice of hiding cosmetic treatments from your spouse or partner has been on the rise. Why? Well, for one, no one wants to admit that they’re aging, nor let on that they’re getting a little help to stay lookin’ fine.

For two, more and more couples are maintaining separate bank accounts these days, even after marriage. So it might be a matter of, “what’s yours is yours and what’s mine is mine” when it comes to keeping track of where the money’s going.

Lastly, you might know your partner isn’t in love with the idea of cosmetic treatments, for whatever reason. There is still a bit of a stigma around them, after all, though that is thankfully waning (about time!).

So, should you tell your spouse about your latest anti-aging cosmetic treatment? Here’s the 411 on how to handle “cosmetic infidelity” and some compromises.

When Does a Sneaky “Beauty Snack” Cross the Line, Anyway?

TBH, the word “sneaky” and “relationship” don’t exactly go together. If you feel guilty about spending money on secret cosmetic treatments, chances are good it’s not great for your relationship. That’s not to say that your partner should make you feel guilty about doing something for yourself, though. If you find yourself in this predicament, sounds like a soul-searching, heart-to-heart chat is in order between the two of you!

Fess Up about Your Anti-Aging Treatments, Already!

It’s time to fess up, ladies and gents – anti-aging treatments shouldn’t be taboo in your marriage!

At the end of the day, there’s nothing to be ashamed of if you’re getting anti-aging treatments, and they’re certainly nothing to ruin a marriage or relationship over. Alas, honesty is the best policy, and you might just find that your other half is more understanding about your cosmetic treatments than you thought.

What Are the Best Cosmetic Treatments for Anti-Aging?

If it’s extensive surgery or a fake look your partner’s worried about, you’re in luck! There are plenty of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments for anti-aging that can be the perfect compromise, helping you look and feel like a 10 without worries of being unrecognizable to your spouse.

Here are some of my personal faves:

  • Laser skin treatments. If your partner is worried about you looking “overdone” or “fake,” have no fear with laser treatments! These puppies will have your skin looking and feeling healthy and glowing without the worry of coming away looking like a Stepford wife.
  • Nonsurgical skin tightening. Likewise, nonsurgical skin tightening devices like Profound® RF are able to give you a youthful look without the more dramatic results of something like a facelift or one-too-many units of BOTOX®.
  • Nonsurgical body contouring. Not quite loving the results you’re getting at the gym just yet? Body contouring devices like CoolSculpting® and EMSCULPT® can help enhance your already-amazing efforts with diet and exercise to help you reach your fitness goals. And again, you’re not going to come out looking like someone else – just the very best version of you!
