Enhance Your Competitive Edge in the Workplace with Cosmetic Procedures


With job losses at an all time high, and 401-k’s leaving us with little left to fall back on, it comes as no surprise that our baby boomers, once set for retirement are now getting back on their feet and back into the workforce. Needless to say, the amount of job seekers on the market today makes securing a job that much more complicated. Times are tough and competition is fierce for those looking to make some extra income.

These days, appearance is almost as vital as your actual resume. Why? There are several reasons, but most importantly, first impressions are critical. While many would have previously splurged on surgery as an anecdote to age, this option has become harder to commit to as bank accounts have dwindled and expenditures have re-adjusted.

So how do those 40 and 50-somethings maintain their competitive edge against the array of young professionals? Easy….they are turning to non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to turn back the hands of time without burning a hole in their pocket or their bank accounts. A recent article published discussing this very subject, and in the process, outlined “Six Popular Treatments for Cost-conscious Consumers”.

And they are:

1) Botox Injections - still the most requested procedure to date, this treatment temporarily removes the glabellar lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows).

2) Cosmetic Fillers - wrinkle fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, Evolence, etc.

3) Laser Treatments - longer lasting procedures that eliminate not only wrinkles, but scars, birthmarks, blemishes, acne, spider veins, and much more.One of the most popular procedures is the Fraxel re:pair, which is virtually a facelift without a facelift.

4) Skin Resurfacing/Rejuvenation - this includes treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasions.

5) Minimally Invasive Surgery - facial plastic surgeons are now using more minimally invasive techniques which give you less pain, less downtime, and less trauma to the skin.

6) Lip Augmentation - a great way to give your pucker a little more “umph” while reducing wrinkles around the mouth.

Understanding that these procedures may still sound intimidating, it is important to do your research before moving forward. Americans undergo more than 2 million facial plastic surgeries per year. Go with a doctor you can trust, has great training and experience, and who takes your face and your appearance seriously.
