Many American’s are out of work these days and are looking for jobs, many who are Baby Boomers in their 40’s and 50’s. Making a good first impression is always one of the most important aspects to starting an interview off right, but when did wrinkles count against you? Apparently NOW.
According to a recent article in Time Magazine, individuals with wrinkles are less likely to get hired for a position. Could this be caused by the tired or angry look lines and wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead can create? Possibly. Imagine you are a business owner and you are hiring someone to represent your company, the first person your clients will often met, are you going to hire someone who looks like they are tired, mad or warn out? Probably not. Some business owners are starting to count age against individuals. They want someone who has experience, but doesn’t show it- literally.
For this reason many individuals in industries such as sales, account management and retail or opting to undergo facial rejuvenating procedures such as Botox, eyelid surgery and Facelift. Women and men are considering it an investment in their career, similar to the way you invest in college. Facials, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing are treatments to help improve and maintain healthy glowing skin, which people are undergoing on a routine basis. Injectables such as Botox, Restylane and other facial fillers can help improve the signs of aging by decreasing the extent and definition of lines and wrinkles, which are other common procedures being performed. Injectables and facial fillers are non-invasive and typically require quarterly or bi-yearly up keep to sustain and maintain a refreshed appearance.
For individuals seeking further improvements than decreasing the visibility of lines and wrinkles, such as getting ready of sagging skin above the eyelid or sagging skin on the neck or near the jowls often turn to eyelid surgery, facelift, neck lift, or a combination of procedures. Additionally, individuals who are looking for less up keep on a quarterly basis turn to these surgical procedures as the results often last much longer than injectables and facial fillers when weight is properly maintained.
