RISE IN NON-SURGICAL COSMETIC TREATMENTS
TO IMPROVE CAREER PROSPECTS
AS the economy
starts to pick up, workers are increasingly turning to cosmetic
improvements to boost their business position and employability.
More people are seeking cosmetic improvements in a serious bid to
make a good first impression at job interviews and make their mark
in the boardroom.
Anita Morris, an influential northern businesswoman is the latest to
have taken advantage of non-surgical cosmetic options in order to
boost her appearance naturally. Anita commented:- “I am
approaching my 50th birthday this year and working in a
client-facing industry, I realised the importance of taking good
care of my skin.
I never set out to look 30 again, so decided against surgical
options and embarked on an alternative programme of natural
treatments to rejuvenate my skin. I’m really happy with the results
and so many people have commented on how well I look.”
Leading non-surgical cosmetic clinic, SkinGenesis, records over 150
consultations each month at its 3 clinics in Leeds, Manchester and
Peter Beard, Director of Treatments at SkinGenesis, said:-
“Looking good gives people confidence and maintains a positive,
‘can-do’ attitude. The workplace is currently more competitive than
ever, and many of our clients come to us seeking skin rejuvenation
treatments, without the risks associated with going under the
Non-surgical options are becoming increasingly attractive to
cash-strapped people who need a boost and wish to be taken seriously
in the boardroom. The trend is evident amongst both men and
women hoping to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and to help shift
unsightly thread veins, redness and blemishes that have developed
over the years.
Peter added:- “First impressions count and whether it’s a job
interview or an important sales pitch, it has never been more
important to ensure you make the right one, so knowing that you look
good can provide the extra confidence boost that you need.
Anything that we can do to help people get back into work or gain
the promotion they deserve, we will do whole-heartedly.”
GRAND DAY OUT ON THE TILES

to the public as part of a series of ‘grand’ celebrations.
The exquisite Minton tile floor of Liverpool’s celebrated St
George’s Hall is being revealed from Wednesday February 10 until
Monday February 21 to celebrate the first 1,000 days since the
Victorian jewel was re-opened by HRH Prince Charles on St George’s
Day in April 2007 after a £23m restoration.
The mosaic masterpiece, which takes pride of place in the Great
Hall, consists of 30,000 hand crafted tiles and is an immaculately
preserved surface after being covered in the 1880s to provide a more
hardwearing surface for dancing.
The tiles, which depict tritons, sea nymphs and boys on dolphins, as
well as the city's coat of arms, were last unveiled in February 2009
and attracted over 35,000 people.
The award-winning Hall will be open from 10am to 5pm every day, and
although booking isn’t necessary, there is a £1 per person admission
fee, payable at the Heritage Centre Entrance on St John’s Lane
(under-16s go FREE with a responsible adult). Last admission is at

over an hour. Tickets will cost £5. To book, please contact the

Councillor Tina Gould, Liverpool City Council’s Assistant Executive
Member for Heritage, said:- “The re-opening of St. George’s
Hall was one of the cultural highlights of the past decade and the
first 1,000 days since has been hugely successful for both the hall
and the city. We want to
celebrate the hall in all its glory – both its history and its role
today - and encourage as many people as possible to experience how
one of the great architectural triumphs of the Victorian age is
being brought to life in the 21st century.’’
St George’s Hall is also currently celebrating the bicentennial of
the birth of Liverpool-born, four-time Prime Minster William
Gladstone. The exhibition, held in the Gladstone Gallery, runs until
Sunday, March 7 and features items such as records, diaries and
books from his career, Gladstone merchandise such as pottery and
ceramics, newspaper cuttings of the day and a bust donated by
Liverpool John Moores University.
And on Wednesday and Thursday, 3 February to 4 February 2010, the Great Hall will
be home to almost 70 specially decorated penguins as part of the Go
Penguins People’s Preview – which is the final opportunity for
people to see the stars of Liverpool’s public art winter blockbuster
before they are auctioned on-line. For more information visit:-
