COVID-19 Reopening Updates View Update Virtual Consultation

Newsweek recently published an article about the benefits of looking good in the modern-day workplace.  And in the words of a New York recruiter “This is the new reality of the job market,” says one New York recruiter, who asked to have her name withheld because she advises job candidates for a living. “It’s better to be average and good- looking than brilliant and unattractive.”  You can read the full article here: The Beauty Advantage

Unfortunately, the world we live in is based upon a modest degree of superficial opinions.  But this truly has persisted for many reasons since the dawn of human civilization – this is only the most modern version and permutation.  People often choose their partners, employees, or friends based upon genetic code.  Indicating what “traits” have been the most successful over the ages.

Over the past several years, I have seen an increase in the number of patients who lost their jobs as a result of the economy and came to my office looking for a way in which they can be more competitive and look “younger.” There is a proven unconscious bias that people will more likely select a less qualified, more attractive candidate for a position.  Certain cosmetic procedures can help individuals look younger, more vibrant, and possibly help someone successfully reenter the workplace.

It is interesting how little this has changed over the years – I only disagree with the example they used for the present day.  What do you think?

TO OUR MARIN AESTHETICS PATIENTS:

In light of the state wide restrictions on non-essential businesses to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are rescheduling all of our elective appointments until the global circumstances improve. Our necessary post-operative appointments will be made, as needed, to address immediate surgical concerns such as suture removal and acute postoperative issues. All non-acute follow up appointments, fillers and Botox will need to be postponed until after the quarantine period mid April. Our office will reach out to all patients who need to be rescheduled.

We will be offering new patient virtual consultations online and via Skype that can be scheduled through our website or by emailing info@marinaesthetics.com. Also, we will offer follow-up appointments in the same manner to help manage our patients’ concerns while still respecting the need for social distancing.

We appreciate all of your understanding during these difficult times for all of us.

Stay safe,

Dr. Main and the Marin Aesthetics Team
