posted on 8/23/2011
If small wrinkles, skin breakouts and age spots are preventing you from looking your best, you don’t have to settle for layers of expensive skincare products to improve your complexion. Today’s innovative skin rejuvenation treatments can help improve your skin from inside out, and treatments such as the ‘lunchtime peel’ are a quick and easy way to enjoy a mini-facelift – without painful surgery or incisions.
Variations of the classic microdermabrasion treatment and chemical peels lay the foundation for an effective lunchtime peel; if you have thirty minutes to spare over lunch break, give your looks a boost with these anti-aging skincare treatments:
How the Lunchtime Peel Works
Every cosmetic surgery center or aesthetic clinic has its own version of the ‘lunchtime peel’; some use a combination of microdermabrasion techniques and a chemical peel, while others use innovative laser and photofacial devices that help buff away dead skin cells, eliminate blemishes and light scars, and also reduce pore size. The lunchtime peel can help treat several types of skin conditions including:
Sun-damaged skin: any age spots, skin pigmentation and skin discoloration can be dramatically reduced after a deep exfoliation treatment
Acne scars and superficial scars: lunchtime peels can help buff away the top layer of skin so that you’re left with a clearer, smoother complexion
Aging skin: wrinkles, fine lines and even slightly sagging skin can be treated with microdermabrasion and chemical peels that help tighten and tone the skin from inside out Oversized pores: if you have enlarged pores that are often the source of breakouts, chemical peels can be particularly effective in shrinking the pores and reducing your risk of breakouts
Key Benefits of the Lunchtime Peel
In addition to being a quick, safe and effective treatment, the lunchtime peel has several other benefits:
No discomfort – you won’t need anesthesia or any type of medication to recover from this facial rejuvenation treatment. The lunchtime peel is simply a deep exfoliation treatment that will cleanse the pores, reduce oily patches on the skin and leave the skin clean and fresh.
Low risk of side effects – almost all skin types respond well to microdermabrasion and chemical peel treatments, and the procedures present very few side effects. This makes it easy to manage skin after the treatment and enjoy the benefits right away.
Low-priced treatment – when you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on skincare treatments, a chemical peel or microdermabrasion treatment can help you balance the budget. These skin rejuvenation treatments cost an average of $100 - $175 depending on the market, and you will see results immediately. Problem skin may require a series of 3-5 treatments to see dramatic results, but even then, the total cost is considerably lower than other facial rejuvenation procedures.
Quick procedure - most people who book a lunchtime peel can be in and out of the doctor’s office in under 45 minutes, and the treatment itself only takes between 20-30 minutes.
If you want to improve the look of your skin and ward off the signs of aging, a lunchtime peel may be a quick and effective way to begin your anti-aging skincare plan.
