Staying ahead in today’s competitive workplace by appearing youthful is an experience some men are facing at a surprising young age.
The 2019 Hiscox Ageism in the Workplace Study found 21% of those over 40 had experienced ageism in the workplace. Among workers aged 40 and over, there is a perception that they are somehow, “washed up professionally” and that they are seen by their younger co-workers as being “set in their ways, not tech-savvy and unmotivated.” While unjustified, this trend applies to both men and women and may be present in some sectors more than others, such as tech.
Men are increasingly looking for solutions to project an image of youthful vitality. Staying fit, mentally nimble, and socially current are among the strategies. Building on the benefits of physical maintenance are non invasive, age correcting treatments for the face, neck, body and skin. The number of men undergoing non surgical procedures more than doubled between 2000 and 2016. Rather than looking weary or worried when in stressful high demand situations, these treatments make it possible to appear fresh faced, relaxed and naturally expressive.
At Live Young Medical we are seeing an increase in the number of men seeking anti-aging treatments and skincare. They are discovering how easy and discreet it is to obtain clear, taught skin and a more attractive, defined look with minimal downtime. Below are some effective options for natural results.

Profound® Radiofrequency/Microneedling is a treatment that combines the benefits of deep micro-needling with radiofrequency to reduce the fat layer that causes a double chin and to tighten the overlying skin by generating new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid within the skin. It is also used more widely to tighten the skin in the mid and lower face and neck and for mild to moderate face and neck lines.
