Regardless of whether we like it or not, looks are important. According to 2011 research by Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, people assess your competence and trustworthiness in a quarter of a second (250 milliseconds)–based solely on how you look. But what if you weren’t dealt the best hand of genes? Work with what you have!
Starting from the top, we can put our best face forward with a consistent skin care regimen. Skin Medica offer’s a great product called TNS Essential Serum. I personally use it, and recommend it to all of my patients because of the rejuvenating ingredients that include; growth factors, antioxidants, soluble collagen cytokines and matrix proteins. In addition to TNS Essential Serum, using daily sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher is imperative. Not only does it protect us from skin cancer, it also helps protect against photoaging: the wrinkling, spotting and loss of elasticity caused by exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.
After we have taken great care to treat and protect our faces, we can begin to address bigger issues. For instance, Rhinoplasty or an Endoscopic Brow Lift can do wonders for the face. Both procedures offer beautiful and natural results that make a huge impact on first impressions. By eliminating distracting features like a slight hump on the nose or a low brow, we are creating opportunity for others to notice our better features.
