4 Anti-Aging Treatments You Can Do on Your Lunch Break

Mar 16, 2020

Life can get pretty hectic, and if you’re not careful, time can sneak up on you. Self-care may fall by the wayside, taking care of your looks often winds up at the bottom of your to-do list, and you can end up looking as exhausted as you feel. With everything else to do, who has time for cosmetic procedures? Actually, you do, with these quick, effective anti-aging treatments you can undergo during your lunch break!

  • BOTOX® is one of the most popular treatments in the country. An FDA approved treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. It’s appropriate for both men and women, of all ages and ethnicities, and it causes your facial muscles to relax without compromising your facial expressions. You can have Botox as soon as you notice signs of aging, or you can decide to have it as a preventive treatment when you’re in your late 20s or early 30s. There’s no downtime or recovery time, and you’ll see results within the first week. The best news? Patients can typically expect to be in and out of Botox treatment in 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Dysport® Cosmetic is a treatment for moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. These wrinkles, caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, can even develop in younger adults. This procedure involves one injection in each of five points between and above the eyebrows and leaves the rest of your face to move naturally. You’ll get natural-looking results, and you can easily do it on your lunch break because Dysport only takes about 25 minutes.
  • The DermaPen® is a fractional micro-needling device. It tightens, lifts, and rejuvenates the skin, effectively reducing fine lines and wrinkles, as well as stretch marks and surgical or acne scars. It’s safe for every skin type, involves minimal discomfort, and has virtually no downtime. For optimal results, you’ll need multiple treatments, but you should plan for an extended lunch break for these: treatment can take up to two hours.
  • Intensive Pulsed Light (IPL) is a form of light therapy treatment. It works on skin conditions like facial skin imperfections, signs of photo-aging, birthmarks, unwanted hair, small, unsightly veins, and blemishes using specific wavelengths of light. When the light reaches the collagen beneath the surface of the skin, it changes to heat energy, removing unwanted tissue and giving the skin a more youthful appearance. IPL only takes about 45 minutes, so it’s easy to squeeze into a lunch break.
