Working 9 to 5 leaves little time for that all-important “self-care.” Setting aside precious hours for the occasional massage, a mani-pedi or nourishing facial can make all the difference in the world for today’s busy professional.
But would you believe that you could take years off your appearance in the time it takes to eat a deli sandwich or slice of pizza? Though it’s been coined “lunch break plastic surgery,” the types of procedures offered aren’t invasive in the least and are therefore not surgical in nature. Injectables, fillers and skin firming devices don’t promise to make a 45-year-old look 20, but these innovative treatments deliver noticeable results for minor cosmetic issues.
So if you’ve been unhappy with deepening forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, laugh lines or dark under eye circles – there’s great news! Dr. B. Aviva Preminger offers a host of anti-aging, skin-rejuvenating procedures in her NYC plastic surgery office – all of which entail no downtime and can be performed on your lunch break.
Non-invasive plastic surgery on your lunch break
Increasing numbers of busy men and women are availing themselves of today’s most popular lunch hour treatments without anyone being the wiser. The beauty of Botox and temporary dermal fillers is that they leave patients with a fresh, youthful glow within minutes, or in the case of Botox – days – of the procedure. And when administered by a qualified and highly experienced plastic surgeon, the results are understated yet beautiful.
Let’s took a look at some of the most effective cosmetic treatments you can have in less than an hour.
- Lunch time wrinkle remedy – Botox is most effective on worry lines between the brows, wrinkles and horizontal lines on the forehead, as well as crow’s feet. The injections are virtually painless, take less than 10 minutes and function by halting muscle contractions in targeted areas. The full results won’t be noticeable for up to 5 days, but most patients notice a MAJOR difference in the first 48 hours. Side effects are minimal and may include minor bruising or redness at the site, and the results can last up to 5 months! With repeated injections, Botox can last longer, meaning some people only need a touch up twice a year.
- Facial fillers – Dermal fillers deliver youthful fullness to areas of the face that have lost volume or have developed creases over time due to repeated muscle movement. Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse and other fillers are excellent for addressing laugh lines, under eye hollows, sunken cheeks and wrinkles around the mouth. Fillers are well tolerated by most and involve no downtime, getting you back to work with nothing more than little redness. And the results can last anywhere from 6 months to 1.5 years.
- Ultrasonic facial lift – Ultherapy is FDA-approved to help firm, tone and lift skin under the chin, around the jawline, under the brow and chest using ultrasound energy. Designed to counteract the signs of aging, gravity and sun exposure, Ultherapy targets deep tissue structures to stimulate collagen production. A face and neck treatment lasts just over 60 minutes, while the chest/décolletage takes roughly half an hour. Full results are evident in 2 to 3 months and there is no downtime involved.
- Rejuvenating chemical peels – Bothered by age spots, freckles, rough skin texture or large pores? Light chemical peels can help correct these issues by exfoliating outer skin layers to reveal a healthy glow beneath. Depending on your skin type and level of sun damage, a Glytone Enerpeel MA, made with mandelic acid or an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) may work wonders.
