(English) Lunch hour treatments you’ll love
Lunch hour treatments, so named for their quick and efficient aesthetic treatments you can do during lunch time, or under an hour. And what’s not to love about them? They’re fast, they treat your imperfections and they help you look better than when you first stepped out of your home this morning. Plus with many aesthetic treatments having little to no downtime, you could easily step back into your office with no one knowing about your little self-improvement.
Here are the latest (and personally my favourite) lunch hour treatments you can consider booking yourself in for.
Deep lines in your forehead can make you appear older than you really are, and a square jaw can make you look less feminine than you’d like to. Botox injections placed in the right areas can help to eradicate deep lines and even help you achieve a more V-shape appearance.
These treatments work in the same way where Botox are used to block the nerve impulses responsible for causing these contractions, relaxing the muscles in the process. The treatment can be done in under 30 minutes by a skilled doctor with maximum results to show for it in 7 to 10 days post treatment.
As we age, it’s normal to notice that our skin is not as plump or firm as it used to be. Temples may seem a little more hollow, lips a little thinner, or cheeks not as full as they once were. Fillers can help with these and more.
Depending on your pain threshold, some numbing cream may be applied to increase your comfort level. Filler injections can be completed in under 30 minutes with results to show for it immediately after. Some may notice mild swelling or bruising but these usually dissipate in a few days.
Makeup can be applied immediately after treatment and no one would guess you’d been to the doctor’s.

Youth Preserve using Profhilo is not your regular filler injection and doesn’t serve to add to volume to your skin. While it also uses hyaluronic acid, its main call to fame is treating skin laxity, remodelling ageing and sagging skin while giving a boost of hydration and glow.
Simply by injecting into 5 points on each side of the face, the treatment stimulates 4 types of collagen and elastin via a slow release of hyaluronic acid. Recommended to be done over a series of sessions, the results of Youth Preserve can last for up to 12 months. Downtime is minimal with possible mild swelling for the first 24 hours.
Magnetic Muscle Sculpting
Going to the gym can sometimes feel like a chore. Packing an extra set of gym clothes and a pair of trainers can sometimes feels like it’s worth more effort than you’d like for a toned body.
Enter Magnetic Muscle Sculpting, a body treatment using Functional Magnetic Stimulation to improve the tone of treated muscles by stimulating muscle contraction. This machine can be used for the abs, buttocks and thighs, and even used to treat weak pelvic muscles to improve tone and muscle definition. All these with your clothes on and without you breaking a sweat. You can even choose to watch your favourite episode on Netflix while having this treatment done.
