5 Aesthetic Clinic Services You Can Have During Lunchtime

It is true that when you run a tight schedule, something’s got to give, but it doesn’t have to include skin care. Thanks to modern technology, it is possible for you to pamper your skin even during lunch time! Here are 5 aesthetic clinic services you get to enjoy even without breaking your schedule.

 

1. BTL Exilis Elite

BTL Exilis Elite is the skin tightening treatment that can be used on the face and the body through safe radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production. It can tighten the skin to reduce the appearance of sagging, while also addressing wrinkles. On top of that, it gives the skin a vibrant and youthful look.

 

How It Works

The controlled thermal effect introduced upon treatment affects the triple-helical structure of the collagen fibers. It quickly and efficiently dissociates the collagen structure. Consequently, the natural healing process triggers fibroblasts to actively produce new collagen fibers. This results in the skin getting new collagen fibers. These new collagen fibers are the ones that restores the skin, giving it a smooth texture, elastic quality, and the beautiful radiance of youthful skin.

Its sculpting effect also occurs as the heat destroys fat cells, and it is eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system. Take note that this is not a weight loss solution  but a viable option for those who wish to get rid of their noticeable, stubborn bulges.

 

Time Needed

The length of each session will depend on the area being targeted. Smaller areas like the face can be done in under an hour. However, if you aim to target the larger areas of the body, you might have to give it a bit more time. This type of sessions might take as much as 90 minutes tops.

The good thing about this is that you can immediately return to your usual activities since it doesn’t have any downtime.

 

Number of Treatments Needed

Since each patient is different, the treatment will vary depending on what would suit their needs. Some patients may already notice measurable difference after 4-6 sessions, while others may only need 1-2 visits.

 

2. Dermal Filler SkinBoosters

Another way for you to turn back the clock on your skin during your lunch hour is through Restylane dermal fillers called SkinBoosters. It is an injectable dermal filler that is combined with other “nutritional” or moisturising substances (e.g. amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants, and other solutions). It is perfect for those who want to augment a feature or reduce a line or wrinkle in select areas of the face. It also helps you to achieve a refreshed look by addressing skin concerns like:

  • Dull, aged skin
  • Acne scarring
  • Crepe-like skin
  • Fine lines

Dermal fillers are administered as micro-injections, which means that small amounts of dermal fillers are introduced with each injection through its micro-penetration technique. It replaces the body’s hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring sugar molecule in our skin which is responsible for hydration and plumpness. Problems occur when we gradually lose hyaluronic acid which causes the skin to become drier, rougher, and less elastic.

 

How It Works

Instead of exerting mechanical effects to restore skin damage, SkinBoosters work through their biomechanical properties. They help to restore your skin’s hydrobalance, improving its elasticity and skin structure, resulting in a youthful glow and lustre.

 

Time Needed

The time needed for treatment will depend on the area that is being targeted. Generally, an entire session can be done in under an hour. There may be some temporary swelling, bruising and pin-prick marks. However, the severity will depend on how sensitive your skin is and the skills or technique used by the injector. Most patients will not have any problems going back to work and other social activities after every session.

 

Number of Treatments Needed

A set of three SkinBoosters treatments are best done monthly. The initial intense regimen is designed to ensure that the skin is saturated with hyaluronic acid. This should kickstart the collagen production process to reverse the signs of skin aging.

 

3. Photofacial IPL Treatment

An IPL photofacial treatment is also another option that will help you freshen up during your lunch hour. It is the treatment for those who want to address skin concerns like acne scars, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and broken capillaries. It allows you to transform red, blotchy skin into something more radiant with just a couple of lunchtime visits.

 

How it Works

An IPL Photofacial machine is carefully calibrated to safely seek out specific pigments on the skin. It can be felt like a mild snapping of rubber bands against the skin’s surface. It penetrates deep below the skin’s surface with each snap to address areas right at the source. Furthermore, this treatment also encourages collagen production, eventually giving you smooth and supple skin.

 

Time Needed

An IPL Photofacial treatment can last from approximately 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the area of skin being treated.

 

Number of Treatments Needed

When done properly, an IPL photofacial almost always consists of a series of four treatments, one every three to six weeks. Multiple IPL photofacial treatments are often necessary to achieve maximum results. This is usually the case if you are want to improve skin texture and reduce redness. Getting multiple treatments will affect different layers of the skin. The number of sessions needed will be determined only after a consultation, and it will also be based on your cosmetic goals.

 

4. PicoWay Acne Scar Removal  

If acne scars have become the bane of your existence, PicoWay Acne Scar Removal is a treatment that you can easily schedule around your routine, lunch break or work schedule. It is a laser treatment that can reduce acne scarring through hyper-short laser pulses called “picoseconds.”  

 

How it Works

PicoWay specifically targets pigment and blasts it apart, making it virtually invisible to the naked eye. It multiplies a single beam into 100 “beamlets” to help stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin proteins. This makes it possible to deliver an efficient treatment in reducing discoloration, while improving the skin to make it healthy and flexible.

It is also important to know that collagen breakdown is a contributing factor in acne scarring. Along with elastin, these two proteins provides firmness or a plumping action that makes skin look youthful. Therefore, when these two are not present, scarring, skin damage, and discoloration occurs. The PicoWay laser encourages collagen production in facial skin, resulting in real improvement.  

 

Time Needed

A single session can be as long as 15-20 minutes. You can already observe these improvements in those problem areas without any downtime.

 

Number of Treatments Needed

Some results may be noticeable after one treatment, but it usually takes three sessions to achieve a significant improvement.

 

5. Pigment Removal

Also known as non-ablative laser skin resurfacing, this treatment is a proven method for reducing age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes. Aside from balancing your skin tone, it can also tighten your skin to make it appear more youthful.

 

How it Works

It can address pigmentation problems on the skin by introducing heat into the deeper layers without injuring the surface. The heat generated by the laser promotes collagen production which is an integral process in regeneration and in getting rid of unsightly pigmentation.

 

Time Needed

Depending on the extent of the work that needs to be done and the techniques used, the treatment usually takes 15 minutes to 1 ½ hours. It doesn’t require any downtime, which also means that you can apply makeup over it and resume your normal activities right after treatment.

 

Number of Treatments Needed

Non-ablative lasers call for a series of treatments to produce satisfying results.  This is the trade-off for being a no-downtime treatment. However, once the series of treatments are complete, the results you get to enjoy are long-lasting.

 

It is a relief to know that there are treatments that are more aggressive than topical solutions, but also gentle enough to create satisfying results without having to sacrifice your schedule.  However, you need to know that these treatments would have to be customised so that they address your concerns and your aesthetic goals. Therefore, the length and frequency of treatment is expected to vary for every patient. The best way to know for sure how much time you will commit to each session is through a consultation.
