When you’re busy with your career and family, it can be hard to find time for self-care. Sometimes lunch is the only “personal time” in your packed schedule. Thanks to modern medicine, there are a few fast treatments that can quickly rejuvenate your skin. Dermal fillers, BOTOX®, and other nonsurgical procedures are popular at our London, Ontario, practice for this very reason.
Each of the following treatments typically can be performed in 45 minutes or less. Here are some of the most popular options for patients who want big results in little time.
Dermal fillers are an excellent way to add youthful facial volume and fade the appearance of fine lines. Formulas such as JUVÉDERM use hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump up the skin. Other choices, like Teosyal, can brighten the face by improving undereye circles. Different fillers have different effects and can be customized to a patient’s needs.
Dermal filler sessions last between 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the number of areas treated. Most patients can start seeing results immediately.
BOTOX is a fan-favorite for smoothing out wrinkles and fighting signs of aging. The active ingredient relaxes facial muscles and prevents them from pulling on the skin–the issue that forms wrinkles in the first place. The treatment is suitable for many areas, including the forehead, lips, and corners of the eyes. BOTOX injections are often combined with dermal fillers for a more comprehensive transformation.
BOTOX treatments take around 15 to 20 minutes to complete. There is no downtime required after treatment, so patients can immediately return to their daily activities.
Facials are one of the easiest ways to step into the world of skin care. Our reconditioning and anti-aging facial can help skin that is damaged by sun exposure and other environmental factors. The rejuvenating ingredients help your skin appear instantly firmer and younger. This treatment is best for those who struggle with dehydrated, aging skin.
An average anti-aging facial session lasts around 30 minutes. The protective products involved in treatment will help support your skin for weeks to come.
Medical grade chemical peels are great for brightening the skin and improving your complexion. The treatment removes damaged skin cells from the top layer of the face, revealing the smooth, fresh skin underneath. Patients have many different options when it comes to chemical peels. Each formulation can address specific skin health issues and can be adjusted to suit a patient’s needs.
Depending on the type of peel you request, treatment takes between 15 to 30 minutes. Our peels work well for people of all skin types, skin tones, and complexions.
