For people older than 45, the likelihood of have difficulty finding a job is the highest in 15 years, according to data from the U.S. Department of Labor. In fact, job seekers 45 and older spend several more weeks unemployed than younger competitors. So, given this state of affairs, there has been a huge increase in the numbers of cosmetic procedures that are being performed on those people (both men and women) who are job seeking. Those looking for a job often feel that they are competing for jobs with applicants who are younger. The older applicant is often more qualified, but unfortunately may be judged on their appearance and not their skills.
Surgical and non-surgical procedures can make you look substantially younger, potentially opening the door to many job opportunities that might have otherwise gone to younger applicants. Both surgical and non-surgical procedures have seen a considerable increase in recent times. The non-surgical procedures include such things as: micro-dermabrasion, chemical peels, laser peels, Botox, and other new injectables. Other laser procedures such as Refirme, Trinity, and Thermage can help to tighten and rejuvenate the face without invasive procedures. Many techniques can give that quick lunch time lift and have patients back to work in only minutes looking refreshed and younger!
The hottest surgical techniques to make you look younger include eyelid lifts, facelifts, deeper laser resurfacing, and rhinoplasty. The eyelid lift only takes about an hour and can give a very youthful appearance to both the upper and lower lids. Patients after an eyelid lift can go back to work in about five days with minimal discomfort and swelling. A facelift, whether it is mini, lower, or full lift can take years off of facial appearance. A facelift is great way to pull up the excessive skin, rejuvenate the neck and lift the jowls. The downtime with a facelift is between one to two weeks. Mini, or modified facelifts are often performed on much younger patients before the signs of aging are advanced. Overall, the natural look is of utmost importance. We can often combine laser resurfacing procedures and rhinoplasty to complete a full facial rejuvenation.
One of the most important things to consider in facial rejuvenation is to combine a good skin care regimen along with any facial rejuvenation procedure.
