There are many options available today for people who have little downtime available. This is just a quick overview to give you some idea of what can be accomplished without having to take much time off.
Botox and fillers are the mainstay for no downtime improvements. These procedures can be performed during your lunch hour and reduce wrinkles, provide support to the face, augment lips, and provide immediate results.
Light laser peels or chemical peels provide very nice improvements with no appreciable downtime. Our new Halo laser provides very nice results with only two or three days of downtime. It removes brown spots and reduces wrinkles while improving skin tone and texture. This proprietary technology is truly a game changer for those looking for dramatic improvements while balancing downtime.
CoolSculpting is a great method to remove fat and reshape your body without downtime. This painless procedures permanently removes fat. This is truly a no downtime procedure that can provide dramatic improvements to patients.
Lip augmentations with either silicone (Permalip) implants or fat grafting provide long term improvements for thinning lips. These require several days of downtime as you do get some swelling and bruising, but the bruising is easy to cover with lipstick. I find that many people miss the lips when thinking about facial rejuvenation or overall aesthetic improvement.
SkinTyte is a laser designed to help tighten skin with no downtime. For loose skin around the abdomen, knees, elbows, neck, etc. it provides excellent tightening without surgery or downtime. This is an exciting new device for those patients who wish to tighten their skin but either are not ready for or do not want surgery.
Mini neck lifts or facelifts are nice adjuvants for minimal downtime improvement. Although there is some bruising, it can be easily hidden to return to work in just a few days. I am a little more reserved for these procedures as a full face and neck lift provide more dramatic results, but for the right patient these are great surgeries to bridge them to a point where they are ready for a full facelift which would require around a week to ten days of downtime.
The Forever Young BBL (broad band light) is another great, no downtime procedure that actually makes your skin younger. This procedure, when done as maintenance, has actually been shown to make your skin look younger over time. This was studied over 10 years and was noted to visibly look younger than when started and even the DNA expression was closer to younger skin. I’m very excited to offer this procedure as it truly has reversed aging.
