Look, we all know that these days, it’s hard to dedicate a long amount of time to anything that’s not family, work or fun. Everything is becoming faster and no one wants to be left behind in the dust. Our communication is getting faster, so is our transportation. The way we study, eat, shop, even get in shape is all being developed to be as convenient and easy as possible.
And the beauty industry upholds this philosophy just as much as anyone else. Clinics know that the last thing you want to do is sit around in the waiting room for hours, to get into the surgeon's office for a couple more, only to leave the clinic half a day after you arrived. It’s like that nervous waiting time outside the dentist’s; who wants that?
So if you happen to lack the patience just like everyone else or if you don’t have the time to wait (also like everyone else), then you want cosmetic treatments that are not just effective, not just safe, and not affordable. You want treatments that are fast. You may think that because of the way the industry works and how complicated the procedures are (procedures like dermal fillers or Botox NYC and other major metropolitan areas’ most popular treatments), they take a long time.
But you’d be sorely mistaken, because many of these popular treatments are actually quite fast in all the safest, most efficient ways. So let’s take a look at some of the most popular treatments you can get at your nearest clinic that are quick, but super effective.
Yes, the big one; Botox. Even Botox, a treatment that many clinics exclusively open up for, is actually much faster than most people have come to believe.
This mostly comes from the fact that the treatment is minimally invasive. When it comes to procedures, you can categorize them in different ways. Invasiveness is one of these factors and it determines how much damage is done to your body for the procedure. Of course, by damage I don’t mean concussions and broken bones, but rather, things like cuts, incisions, maybe sometimes even controlled burns of the skin. So there is a vast variety of different things that can be done to the skin during a procedure.
But Botox is minimally invasive, which means that there is minimal damage that’s going to be done to the body or the skin. Damage in this case, is a series of tiny injections into certain parts of the body. Very simple, very controlled and safe injections are made in designated parts of the face, which distribute the Botox compound into that area.
Once the compound is safely under your skin, you’re pretty much free to go on your way. And depending on the amount of Botox that you’re getting, as well as what area of the face or body you're treating, the procedure altogether should last you around an hour, this includes the waiting time, a few minutes for some paperwork and administrative tasks.
So you can get a Botox treatment out of the way rather quickly, if you were up for it.
Ever heard of Microneedling? It’s basically a very simple procedure that involves a bunch of tiny needles poking holes in your face, which then triggers your body to create new skin cells to replace the old ones, thus making the treated skin layer much smoother, more supple and healthy.
It’s not really as simple as I make it out to be but that’s the general idea. As with Botox, the treatment is minimally invasive, as it’s just the needles going into a certain layer of the skin, making microscopic holes. The holes do bleed, but very little. Basically, if you wipe off the blood once, the holes close up and won’t bleed after that.
So, much like Botox, there is barely any damage done to the skin to reach the desired results of the treatment. Not to mention, that the holes actually heal pretty fast. But the procedure itself, also much like Botox, can take no more than 50 minutes, depending on how much of the face you’re treating.
The results come around as this new layer of fresh skin, which is strong and healthy, as well as the smoothing out of wrinkles and acne scars. So, you’ll be done within the hour and go back to your daily routine. Again, very short, but very effective.
To help restore volume and smooth out wrinkles, dermal fillers are being used as an injectable. A special compound is injected into key areas of the face, that holds up the skin and tightens it around certain locations of the face, like the forehead, cheeks, chin and jawline.
Like the two previously mentioned, the procedure is basically a series of injections and is very safe. Most clients report that the actual procedure takes around 40 minutes tops and is pretty much painless thanks to special numbing creams.
Plenty of Others
Now, I only talked about a few treatments which are the more popular ones among the roster of many professional clinics. There are plenty of other treatments that are quick, both in terms of procedure and downtime.
If you want to know more about them, you can visit the Skinly Aesthetics website. Skinly Aesthetics is a Manhattan-based clinic, which has gained a lot of notoriety for its high quality of service, its great results and some very convenient treatment plans, such as the Botox NYC, which is a widely beloved package many clients can take advantage of. As a way to promote skin wellness for both new and loyal clients, Skinly Aesthetics offers the treatment plan for a very reasonable price, that won’t be too much of a hassle for your budget.
Most clinics nowadays put your safety and comfort as a top priority for their work. And if taking as little of your time is a priority for you, then these clinics are willing to grant you that comfort as well.
