I see a lot of professionals from the Decatur area in my cosmetic plastic surgery office. Many of them confess their concern that the signs of aging – such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and sagging jowl lines – are hurting their chances for career success. We hate to acknowledge it, but looking younger can truly affect the way people perceive your energy and performance in a work environment. Fortunately, there are several easy ways to treat the signs of aging without taking much time off work.
Making a good impression starts with the way you present yourself and looking fresh and energized is a good way to show that you are ready to handle whatever your job involves. The effect is subtle, but the signs of aging can make you look tired and over-worked even if you are alert and attentive. So, whether you are interviewing for a new job or trying to move up the ladder at your current company, taking care of your appearance is essential for making the right impression.
Knowing you look your best makes you feel more confident as well, which is a quality that most employers look for. That confidence also carries over into your work, helping you feel more self-assured about your abilities. In addition, you spend less time worrying about how you look.
Choose the right approach for you when it comes to enhancing your appearance. Options range from cosmetic surgeries such as a face lift to non-surgical enhancements such as laser skin treatments and injectable fillers, which require no downtime. Popular solutions among professionals include injectable fillers to smooth away deep-set wrinkles or BOTOX® to treat wrinkles caused by constant muscle contractions. Requiring about an hour of your time, you enjoy the benefits for months, sometimes even over a year.
The challenge: how do you know which approach is the right one for you? Take the time to meet with a medical professional who you feel can meet your needs.
