After months of lockdown and working from home, many workers are beginning to make the move back into the office. Many businesses have been making the most of video conference software such as Zoom and Skype. This is helping people to stay in touch with their teams and clients. However, these online meetings are slowly becoming face to face interactions.
As a result, a large number of workers are opting to undergo cosmetic procedures and beauty treatments before they head to back to the workplace. Everything from non-invasive facelifts and anti-ageing treatments to liposuction and sculpting are becoming increasingly popular. For many, it isn’t a case of vanity but about looking the part for when they are back in work.
In this post, we are exploring why these treatments are on the rise and how they are helping the workforce get back to their daily lives.
There are many reasons why individuals are choosing to undergo cosmetic procedures to enhance and improve their appearance in the workplace. Some of the key reasons include;
For those workers that have spent hours a day on video conference calls, they will have been looking at their own face on the screen for all this time. Most people don’t spend anywhere near this much time looking at their appearance. Consequently, it can lead people to scrutinise every little detail.
Many individuals are seeing lines, wrinkles and blemishes that may have never bothered them before. Unflattering angles, less makeup and preparation in the mornings can highlight areas of improvements. You may not have considered these previously, but now want to enhance.
While most non-invasive surgeries have very little recovery time, many people still want some time at home to ensure they are looking their best post-procedure. Many treatments have progressive results. This means they continue to improve over time. With workers now being given dates to head back to the office, a lot are keen to get their treatments in while they can still recover privately at home.
If cosmetic procedures can be completed while working from home, then when it is time to get back to work, they will be looking their very best. Not only that but with recovery taking place in the comfort of the home, workers can head back without anyone knowing they have undergone a cosmetic procedure.
The Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown has been a stressful time for everyone. With many people having to handle additional responsibilities such as childcare and education, it really has taken its toll. Stress is one of the main causes of signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
When the body is stressed, it shows in your appearance, and many people are finding themselves looking more tired and aged than they were a few months ago. Because of this, people are turning to non-invasive anti-ageing procedures to combat these signs of stress and ageing on the skin.
In addition to this, a lot of people have gained some weight during lockdown. This can be due to emotional eating, gyms being closed and the difficulty of maintaining a healthy routine. Weight loss procedures are becoming a popular choice for these people.
With beauty salons and surgeries ordered to close during lockdown, anyone who did decide over the last few months that they wanted a procedure has been forced to wait. Now that these salons begin to open their doors and welcome patients once again, they are seeing a massive surge in demand.
Many workers will have made the decision to have beauty treatments over the last few months, but not been able to go ahead with their plans until now.
Many people are choosing treatments which fight signs of ageing, weight loss and blemishes on the skin. Here at Hans Place, we offer a range of non-invasive treatments which are popular among people returning to work. Our top treatments are;
For those looking to reduce sagging skin anywhere on the body or neck, Renuvion is a popular choice. It uses non-invasive technologies to tighten the skin and leave it smoothed. Radio frequencies are cooled using helium and work to quickly heat and cool the subdermal tissues within the skin to create a tighter, toned and more youthful appearance. A local anaesthetic is required, and the procedure takes roughly 1 to 2 hours. Recovery time is just 1 to 2 days, making it perfect for before returning to work.
Dermal Fillers are a great, non-invasive option for cosmetic procedures such as facelifts. They work to plump up diminished areas in the face which can be the cause of signs of ageing and sagging. These types of fillers are extremely natural-looking and help to improve the youthfulness and vitality of the skin.
Dermal Fillers are administered using small injections in a treatment which takes just 30 to 45 minutes. The recovery time is just 1 to 2 hours, and the results are very impressive. Because Dermal Fillers are so versatile, they can be used to treat signs of ageing, augment facial features or rejuvenate the skin. Dermal Fillers are extremely popular among workers wanting to enhance their appearance before heading back to work. This is thanks to their potentially powerful results and minimal recovery.
Anyone who suffers with stubborn areas of fat can benefit from Vaser Liposuction. This is a non-invasive option to traditional liposuction. The treatment takes between 1 to 3 hours and depending on the patient; the recovery time can be between 1 to 7 days.
It works by using targeted ultrasound technologies to remove areas of fat and reshape the body. This treatment usually focuses on the thighs, flanks or tummy, and the results are impressive.
There is no need for anaesthetic or a stay in hospital. The procedure will take place in a minor surgical theatre. Before the treatment, the treatment area is filled with a special solution using small incisions in the skin. After this, the small ultrasound probe is used to transmit sound energy which emulsifies the fatty tissue.
