Two Girlfriends Get Real About… A Wrinkle In The Workplace

Published On: February 1, 2021

Dear 2GGR:

I am in a competitive sales environment and my colleagues are getting younger and younger. I feel I’m losing my edge. What can I do to get it back? A.B. from Bear Creek.


Great question A.B.! You are not the first man or woman who has felt this way. Teachers, sales people, marketing personnel, basically anyone who deals with the public has found that a youthful appearance plays a critical part in achieving success. So what can you do to get it–without undergoing surgery? I feel that getting one’s feet wet with regard to rejuvenation begins with Botox and fillers. It is amazing what a difference this quick fix can make. Botox and fillers can erase a frown between the eyes, forehead wrinkles, and those deep naso-labial folds that really age the face. Injectibles do not provide the results of a facelift, but small cosmetic procedures can make a big difference to your bottom line—and they are well worth a try.


Ageism in the workplace is real! Plus, studies show that first impressions are critical when dealing with the public. If you look tired or grumpy, you’ll lose out fast. Women especially, have workplace challenges. Look at the former president of Chile, Michelle Bachelet. The press called her La Gordis (the Fatty!). Look at Hillary and the slings and arrows she’s endured. Both of them are tremendously accomplished, but what do people notice? Their looks! Vigor, good grooming, and projecting confidence are core attributes of workplace success. So why not use every weapon in your arsenal…including fighting back with Botox and fillers.


Down time: Almost none (but there can be some bruising).
Longevity: Botox, 4 months. Fillers, 6 months to 5 years (depending on type)
Affordability: As a short term fix…pricey but affordable (probably under $2000 for both)
Wow Factor: QUICK and visible results (but allow 3 weeks before a big event…just in case)
