Top 4 Cosmetic Procedures With The Least Downtime

Our hectic schedules shouldn’t stop us from looking our best, and this freedom shouldn’t be limited to skincare and wardrobe either! Women on the go, however, think twice about their body enhancement dreams, thinking they won’t have weeks to spend in recovery.

 

Contrary to popular belief, cosmetic improvements shouldn’t be ruled out by your tight timetable. Modern technology has made possible treatments that can be done during your lunch break.  Who doesn’t want perky twin peaks within the span of an hour, or a quick treatment to flawless, blemish-free skin?

 

Here are some cosmetic procedures that do not require weeks of procedure and recovery:

 

Botox

 

This non-surgical treatment is the instant answer to apparent signs of aging. The wrinkles and creases on your face will be significantly reduced, takes only a few minutes and usually does not even require anesthesia. Your wrinkle problem areas such as your forehead, vertical frown and crow’s feet will be resolved with these purified toxins. The full effect can be observed a week after the procedure, and can last up to four months.

 

Chemical Peel

 

Chemical peels are simple procedures involving the application of a chemical solution to the skin, causing it to peel and reveal smoother and more radiant skin. The treatment itself requires an hour or more, and the recovery period depends on how deep the chemical peel is. The healing time varies:

  • superficial peels take a day up to a week
  • medium peels one to two weeks
  • deep peels two to three weeks

CoolSculpting

Say goodbye to fats (and surgery!) with CoolSculpting, a non-invasive procedure that reduces your body fat without going under the knife. Depending on the program you and your doctor design to fit your needs, one session will only require 35 to 60 minutes of your time and then voila--your frozen, crystallized fat will naturally die and be eliminated from your body. Downtime is little to zero--you can return to work after!

 

Microneedling

 

Another anti-aging solution, microneedling smoothens your acne scars alongside your fine lines and wrinkles. Using tiny surgical steel needles, your skin will be pricked creating minute injuries that prompt the natural healing process of the body, revealing healthier, more flawless skin.

You only need 30 to 60 minutes to complete a microneedling session, and it doesn’t even hurt. Don’t worry about the bleeding either, because the procedure involves numbing the microneedling area to ease possible pain or discomfort.
