Lunchtime aesthetic treatments are so named for the reason that they can be done in very little time, short enough to be done during the course of your hour lunch time, with little to zero recovery time so you could return without anyone else knowing you had something done.

As a mom with a full-time job, this appeals to me on so many different levels, especially on the fact I could reap the full benefits of a treatment without having to invest too much time. When it comes to lunchtime treatments, these are my go-to.

#1 Anti wrinkle injections

While I’m one to embrace my age, I’m not one to embrace deep wrinkles, particularly the ones that make an appearance even when my face is resting. These deep wrinkles I’m referring to are the two vertical lines that run on my forehead between my eyebrows.

At 42, I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands and decided to opt for anti wrinkle injections. The treatment itself, nothing more than 10 minutes with the doctor marking out the injection points and proceeding with the injections on my forehead. For the first 10 minutes, there was some swelling where the injections were done but within an hour all swelling had disappeared. While results aren’t immediate and can only be appreciated in about 5 days, I liked how I could literally zip in and out of the clinic.

#2 Profhilo

As we age, it’s only normal and expected that our skin will appear drier and saggier as our stores of collagen run down. Profhilo, using pure hyaluronic acid, is a great treatment to intensely hydrate the skin while also treating skin laxity.

This is another injectable that is both effective and fastidious. With injection points just limited to 5 points on each side of the face, the Profhilo treatment can be done in as little as 5 minutes in the hands of an experienced doctor. I’m not going to lie, you’ll be left with some visible pin prick marks on your skin for a few hours after the treatment, but it’s nothing makeup can’t conceal.

Besides improving the overall complexion, Profhilo also helps to tighten and lift the skin – everything you need right there to reduce the signs of ageing.

#3 Laser Hair Removal

Unwanted body hair can be both unsightly and cumbersome to deal with, but the good news is they don’t require too much effort to get of them once and for all.

Laser hair removal treatments are quick and generally painless, without leaving any redness on the skin. The new Candela G-Max permanent laser hair removal treatment is suited for all skin type and also works well for both darker skinned and fair skinned individuals. The treatments can be repeated in four to six week cycles so that means trips to the clinic need not be so frequent.
