Aging: it happens to all of us. It’s an unavoidable experience, a race against time that we’ve been losing for centuries. It’s a reality that appears frustrating, daunting and discouraging at times, but today, there are resources and options that have been made readily available for you to reverse time, appear younger, and win the race. Cosmetic procedures are widely perceived to be time consuming. This doesn’t have to be the case when choosing the procedure that is best suited for you. Listed are four cosmetic procedures available to you at our Lucere Skin Dermatology & Laser Clinic in Edmonton – and the best part? All can be completed in under an hour:
- Botox – One of the most popular cosmetic procedures, Botox injections can be used to target different areas, but specifically, it can be used on any wrinkles around your eyes, on your forehead and in between your eyebrows. While the prospect of Botox may appear tedious and intimidating, you will find that our Lucere team will ensure the process is as comfortable as possible – and it only takes minutes. There is no surgery necessary, no lapse in time during the procedure, making it as fast as possible, and you will find that there are virtually immediate results, all which contribute to the procedure’s popularity. You can be in and out of the surgeon’s chair in only 15 minutes. Within 2-3 days, you’ll find results that you’ll continue to see for months.
- Dermal Fillers – An option that is available simultaneously with Botox, or independently from it, Dermal fillers target lipstick lines (lines that appear vertically around the lips), any lines that appear at the corner of the lips, thinning lips, and virtually any area of the face that has experienced soft-tissue volume loss, which typically occurs with age. The procedure takes only 20 minutes, and the results of these fillers are even more immediate than Botox and last even longer (10 months or more).
- Laser Skin Resurfacing – Laser skin resurfacing is a widely customizable treatment, with many possible procedures and results. While the word “laser” might typically jump out at patients, who would associate it with a lengthier time slot, treatment can actually only be done in 30 minutes. It can be used to improve the overall texture and tone of your skin, address sun damage, or to target any specific wrinkles on any area of your face. The results are quick, and the broader the area that you choose to treat, the more dramatic the results, although it will affect the timeline. Our Lucere team will carefully attend to you and the degree of detail that you are planning for.
- Lid Blepharoplasty – While it is the only procedure on this list that actually is surgical, it also has minimum time commitment. Determining whether the procedure is for you does not have to be a daunting prospect with your Lucere team here to help walk you through the process. Fat will be removed from the inside of your eyelid, through incisions made either below the lash line or inside the eyelid, and you will be in an out of surgery in an hour. You’ll experience reduced lower lid sagging and bagging within an hour, leaving your face looking fresh and rejuvenated.
Aging is a process that everybody will go through, and can leave you feeling disheartened. Where’s the magic wand to reverse the years? Well, who needs a magic wand, with these quick and comfortable cosmetic procedures, leaving your face looking and feeling younger.
