'Lunchtime' cosmetic procedures become more popularPosted: Updated:
PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. -- Cosmetic surgery used to mean invasive procedures and long recovery times. But things have certainly changed! Now, you can trim years off your face during your lunch hour, and head right back to the office.
Susan Van Dyke of Van Dyke Laser & Skin says non-invasive treatments that can be done in an hour or less, with no downtime, are becoming more and more common.
"You don't need to take two or three weeks off," says Van Dyke. "And you're going to see results that are subtle immediately. But the real results start in about a month, and they'll continue about two or three months afterward."
One procedure, called Clear + Brilliant, can rejuvenate the skin in approximately one hour on your lunch break. The Clear + Brilliant skin laser is FDA approved to refresh the skin, providing a more youthful appearance with no downtime.
You can also freeze unwanted fat in about one hour on your lunch break. CoolSculpting is a clinically proven procedure that selectively reduces fat in problem areas, which includes the muffin top, love handles and back fat.
Lift your face without surgery by using Ultherapy. That procedure was recently FDA approved for the neck and chin line, and it harnesses your body's natural processes in order to build new collagen.
Dr. Van Dyke says you can burn bra fat in 40 minutes or less using Liposonix. It's an FDA approved fat reduction treatment that harnesses the power of ultrasound technology. Once only available in Europe, Japan and Canada, in 2012 the treatment became available in the United States.
The treatment targets stubborn fat around your waistline, outer thighs and saddlebags. Noticeable results show after just one treatment, and it is non-surgical, so you can return to work the same day.
