When thinking of cosmetic procedures, many people think that all of them will take more than a few hours to perform. However, this is no longer the case because many procedures now take between 20 minutes and an hour at the most to complete. Below are just five examples of facial procedures that you will be able to have performed during your next lunch break.

Lunch Hour Facelifts

These can involve the use of a product such as Juvederm or Radiesse, which will help relax any wrinkles that may have developed on your forehead or the unsightly lines that often appear between the nose and mouth. In some cases, this procedure can be performed in conjunction with laser resurfacing, which can provide your skin with more of a rejuvenated look. Absolutely no cutting is involved with this type of facelift.

Chemical Peels

These procedures involve having a chemical-based product applied to your face, which causes the uppermost layer of skin to peel off. Chemical peels are a fantastic option of you would like to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, freckles and even some forms of mild scarring. If you have to return to work after your treatment, it can be a good idea to ask if there is the option of using a less concentrated solution, because it will not make your skin as red as the regular option.


This procedure makes use of micro-crystals to polish your outermost layer of skin. All dead skin cells are removed, which enables the rest of your skin to look evenly toned and more radiant. In some cases, microdermabrasion has been known to reduce the appearance of ultra-file lines, acne scars and age spots as well. Although the procedure itself is painless, your skin will be quite sensitive for a few hours after the microdermabrasion has been done.

Botox Injections

Botox injections can be used to eliminate the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and even folds that have appeared in the neck area over time. Once administered, the effects of these injections can last for approximately 6 months. In most cases, it takes approximately 45 minutes to have a series of injections administered in the affected areas.

Laser Teeth Whitening

While not strictly on the face itself, the appearance of your teeth has the ability to make or break your appearance, especially if they are badly stained. A laser teeth whitening procedure involves using a bleaching product that is applied to your teeth. After this has been done, a laser light is shone on to your teeth to activate the product and whiten your teeth. Nowadays, great results can be achieved with a single treatment, which usually takes between 45 minutes and an hour to perform. Results can last between six months to a year.
