When the subjects of cosmetic surgery or facial treatments are mentioned, many people think that they have to give up at least a full day of their time to have them performed. However, this is no longer the case, as many of these treatments can now be performed in an hour or less. This not only leaves you with the freedom to get back to your regular routine; it enables you to enhance various aspects of your appearance with minimal effort at the same time.

Injections and Fillers

When questioned, most women will state that their main concern revolves around looking a lot older than they are. This can be easily remedied these days by means of injections and filler treatments like Botox, Restylane and a host of other dermal fillers (Juvederm and Radiesse). Each of these treatments has the ability to banish fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines and unsightly folds in the face and neck areas and the injections usually take no longer than about 45 minutes to administer properly. It is recommended that your cosmetic surgeon perform a simple allergy test before administering these treatments.

Dermabrasion, Chemical Peels and Laser Resurfacing

Owing to the fact that these options are used to treat skin that is unevenly pigmented, scarred, sun-damaged or acne-damaged, these facial treatments have become extremely popular over the past few years. These treatments work by gently removing the first one to two layers of skin to allow new and unblemished skin to grow and cover the facial area. In many cases, these treatments are also able to remove ultra-fine lines and wrinkles from the face as well. Patients who have more severe scarring or deeper wrinkles will benefit greatly from having laser resurfacing performed. In more severe cases, more than one treatment session may be required to obtain the desired results.

Permanent Makeup Procedures

Women who spend a lot of time and money on makeup and makeup removal products can benefit greatly from these treatments. Some of the most popular options that can be inked permanently include adding color to and defining the lips, a permanent eyeliner option, defining and filling in of the eyebrows or even an entire facial procedure where the eyes, lips and the rest of the face are treated. In some cases, the inking treatments can even be used to disguise or camouflage minor scars on or around the face. It’s important to remember that these inking processes are irreversible, so each should be carefully considered before making any final decisions in this regard.

Each of the above mentioned procedures should only be performed by a qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon, as this will not only guarantee the best possible end results; it will also minimize the risk of any unpleasant or irreversible side effects being experienced afterwards. However, once performed properly, you will be able to feel happier and more confident with your new appearance each time you see yourself in the mirror.
