Are you afraid that you might lose your job because of your age? Unfortunately, your fears may be justified. This is especially true in the technology industry.
An article at Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic News gives us the lowdown on this recent trend. According to a survey conducted by Payscale, 26 out of 32 tech companies surveyed had a median employee age that was younger than 35. Eight companies reported a median age of 30 or younger, while just six respondents had a median age older than age 35. When comparing this to the median age of the average worker in the United States – 42.3 years – the numbers are sobering. Given these statistics, where does this leave older workers? It’s a difficult question to answer.
But don’t fret – there’s some good news. Though you can’t change the year you were born, you can definitely change how old you look. Early signs of aging, such as very fine lines and winkles, are subtle and usually appear when you’re in your 30s. More advanced facial aging begins in the 40s and continues through the 50s—right about the time when many men and women are considering career changes or a new direction in life.
It’s those first deeper wrinkles or age spots that lead to so many mid-career employees to seek out med spa treatments like skin rejuvenation through laser resurfacing. The great thing about med spa treatments is that they are generally non-invasive, offer dramatic results and can fit virtually anyone’s budget.
Are you looking to gain a competitive edge in the workplace? Read on to discover the most popular – and effective – med spa treatments:
Botox, a neurotoxin, works by attaching itself to nerve endings. This causes temporary relaxation of the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles. Botox is only effective on dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that appear when you’re moving your face, such as when you frown. The best parts about Botox are that results are immediate and dramatic, and the procedure is non-invasive with hardly any downtime involved.
Thermage is a non-invasive radiofrequency therapy that can transform and revitalize aging skin on many areas of the body. People love Thermage because it lets them customize their beauty treatments to suit their specific needs. Compared to similar skin tightening treatments, such as mini facelifts, clients obtain superior results with Thermage – but without all the risks and downtime associated with more invasive procedures. Clients can resume their normal activities immediately following treatment.
Juvéderm is a dermal filler comprised of a smooth hyaluronic acid gel that, when injected into the skin, smooths wrinkles and folds around problem areas such as the nose and mouth. Juvéderm is so powerful that its results last up to a year – and after only a single treatment. Best of all, results are immediate, and there’s no downtime involved!
Clear + Brilliant
Clear + Brilliant rejuvenates the skin from the inside out using a non-invasive dioxide laser. Compared with similar laser treatments, Clear + Brilliant procedures require little recovery time and boast a lower risk of complications. Just one Clear + Brilliant procedure produces a significant improvement in skin appearance, improving skin tone and texture and reducing the appearance of pores.
VelaShape is the only FDA-cleared body contouring device. It effectively and safely contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas – all in as little as four treatments. Most people notice dramatic results after just one treatment, including tighter, firmer and smoother skin. After six treatments, people see a significant reduction in cellulite, along with a few inches in circumferential reduction.
