We all have that free hour throughout the day when we can take a work break and do something fun. Most of us opt to recharge our bodies with a quick meal, but if you’re not really that hungry, why not take some time to enjoy the lunch break by improving how you look?

Non-invasive cosmetic procedures have gone a long way in terms of technology, and many of the treatments that used to take a long time to perform and heal have now been reduced to less than an hour. Here are some of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatments that you can have during your lunch break in the best aesthetic clinics in Singapore.

BTX Treatments

BTX is an effective treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the face, like crow’s feet and the dreaded “eleven lines” between the brows. It also prevents new lines from forming as a result of repetitive movement. Though some little lumps may form at the injection locations at first, they usually go away within 10-15 minutes.

Botox is most effective on “dynamic” wrinkles, which are creases that appear when a person makes particular facial gestures. Those expression lines may become permanently imprinted in the skin over time. Botox works by relaxing the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles to appear, smoothing out the lines in the procedure. Botox could also be used to give a more youthful appearance by enhancing facial features around the brows and lips.

Because injections with a very thin needle are practically painless, the treatment usually does not require any form of anesthesia or numbing lotion. There is no downtime following the process, so you could spend a couple of minutes in the office getting your treatment and then go back to your normal schedule.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are an excellent way to increase volume on the face, reduce wrinkles, and “lift” the skin. The most usual places for dermal fillers are your eyes, cheeks, lips, and forehead.

The treatment often includes local injection of anesthesia and applying a local anesthetic cream to the area being treated. Dermal filler gel is gently injected into the treated area when numb. Treatment periods differ based on how many dermal fillers are needed and the treated area but often takes roughly 15-45 minutes.

After the procedure, you can already apply makeup and return to your regular day-to-day activities. Patients are recommended to avoid drinking excessive alcohol and heavy exercise as they could increase the chance of bruising.

Thermage

When you begin to notice skin sagging and drooping but not pronounced, it’s time to get an in-office, non-surgical cosmetic skin tightening procedure in the best aesthetic clinics in Singapore to avoid or fix moderate or early changes. Non-surgical aesthetic treatments to fight skin sagging could also help patients with more evident sagging, but either not candidates for tightening procedures or who do not wish to have surgical treatments and would like to get less tightening compared to what they’d get using surgery.

Thermage is an FDA-approved, non-surgical office treatment to tighten skin without incisions, recovery time, or surgery. The Thermage procedure tip transmits radiofrequency (RF) energy into your deeper skin layers offering rapid collagen and underlying tissue tightening followed by moderate tightening of the skin over time by stimulating new collagen growth.

The Thermage procedure helps fight against sagging skin resulting in the firming of loose skin and upper neck. While it’s not a replacement for a conventional “facelift,” it could offer a substantial tissue tightening effect on the patient’s neck and face who have mild to moderate sagging or looseness and for people who don’t need nor want a surgical facelift.
