Do you use your lunch hour to get things like phone calls or appointments done? We offer our patients several treatments that can be done in approximately 30-45 minutes, leaving you just enough time to get you back to work or about your day with ease. From skin care treatments to injectables like Botox, there are several options for those with busy schedules to still take time out of their day for a quick tune up.
If you are unfamiliar with chemical peels, they come in a variety of strengths from very superficial to deep. Various skin concerns such as sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars can be treated with a series of chemical peels. If you are unfamiliar with chemical peels, it is a chemical exfoliant that is applied to skin to remove damaged layers of skin. As mentioned above, there are different strengths which are tailored to each individual based on the depth of their damage. With a chemical you can choose your recovery time, so if you want to come in for a lunchtime peel that requires no downtime, we can customize a peel for you. If you are looking for something a little more aggressive, most peeling doesn’t occur for 2-3 days, so you have time to prepare for a few days out of social interactions before that happens.
AquaGold Fine Touch
AquaGold is a treatment that uses mesotherapy micro-channeling technology delivering a combination of micro-Botox, filler, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B deep into the dermis with very minimal to no down-time. Treatments are typically quick, making it a great lunchtime treatment that will have you glowing for months.
During a typical treatment, the cocktail of diluted Botox, filler, and serums penetrate the skin through 24K pure gold-plated surgical grade stainless steel micro-channels. These tiny needles are so fine that they cause no bleeding and no pain. Following treatment, it is common for individuals to experience mild redness which decreases throughout the day. This can easily be concealed and smoothed with a mineral sunscreen that won’t penetrate the pores following the treatment. Aquagold skin cocktail provides improvement of tone and texture, often compared to a photofinished smooth and glowing appearance. Results are apparent quickly after treatment with noticeable improvement over 3-7 days. Aquagold lasts approximately 3-5 months.
If you are looking for a relaxing lunchtime but effective treatment, look no further. Hydrafacial is a multi-step treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts impurities followed by antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid that are infused into the skin. The best part about a Hydrafacial is that immediately after treatment that skin is glowing from within.
Hydrafacials can be done on every skin type and for the best results, it is best to receive treatment every 1-2 months. Benefits of consistent Hydrafacial treatments includes: improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, no discomfort or downtime, evens skin tone, more vibrant skin, improves skin texture, reduces hyperpigmentation and reduces oil and pore size. Utah Facial Plastics offers an upgraded Deluxe Hydrafacial that includes a skin corrective booster and LED light treatment. The Hydrafacial lip and eye perk treatments are also great additions for those often-neglected areas.
Botox injections are one of the most popular lunch time treatments because injections can be done in less than 15 minutes, and you still have time to grab a coffee or lunch. Botox is used to treat and prevent wrinkles on areas of the face such as the forehead, between the brows, or around the eyes. Botox generally takes 3-10 days to take full effect and typically lasts 3-4 months on average. The best part about Botox injections, is following treatment it looks like nothing was done and with a quick mineral makeup touch up you can be back to work in no time. Botox is one of Utah Facial Plastics most popular treatments and when done by an experienced injector can look undetectable and natural.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is another very popular lunchtime treatment, again because of how quickly treatment can be done. Laser hair removal is ideal for anyone who has dark hair and light skin who has unwanted hair. Pigmented hair is necessary to have a safe, successful treatment. The laser that is used is attracted to pigmented hair meaning those with blonde, gray, or white hair cannot be properly treated. Most skin colors are appropriate, however those with Fitzpatrick skin type 6 may not be a candidate. Contrast between the skin and hair is necessary so the laser will target the melanin in the hair versus the skin.
Laser hair removal takes anywhere from 6-12 treatments. Before each treatment, the hair must be freshly shaved with no hair above the skin’s surface. If you are being treated during your lunch hour, shaving in the morning is ideal. Each area that is treated takes a different amount of time, so it is important that you discuss this with your esthetician prior to making a lunchtime appointment.
