4 Lunchtime Cosmetic Treatments You Need to Know for Skin Care

Whether you’re working a full-time job or managing a family and home, finding the time for self-care can seem impossible. Skin care may be the last thing on your mind until one day you look in the mirror and realise you need some rejuvenation.  

Booking a lunchtime cosmetic treatment is your solution. Rejuvenate your skin in no time at all by booking a microdermabrasion facial while you take a break. Or, how about a chemical peel? Only got 30 minutes available? No problem at all! With some skin treatments, you can leave the salon before your lunch break is over, feeling refreshed while your skin glows.

Here are four cosmetic treatments you can choose the next time you take a lunch break. All of these treatments can be done in a timespan of 30 minutes to one hour. And you’ll feel invigorated and refreshed knowing you’ve given your skin some loving care.

1. Microdermabrasion Facial

Booking yourself in for a microdermabrasion treatment is one of the best ways to rejuvenate your skin in no time at all. It’s suitable for all skin types, using exfoliation to deal with a multitude of skin problems. This treatment unclogs pores, removes dead skin cells and promotes lymphatic drainage which encourages toxin removal.

Furthermore, this type of treatment will soften wrinkles while boosting the production of collagen. If it’s an anti-ageing treatment you’re looking for then microdermabrasion is your non-surgical alternative to having younger looking skin. It helps to fade dark spots while moisturising and nourishing dry skin.

How does microdermabrasion work? By using gentle exfoliation with fine crystals, the upper layer of the skin is buffed away, exposing the fresh, new skin layer below. The production of collagen is encouraged by this abrasive action, leading to smoother and firmer skin.

2. Chemical Peels

Also known as the “lunchtime peel”, a chemical peel can be done in one hour, resulting in a smoother, glowing skin. Similar to the microdermabrasion facial, a chemical peel:

  • Removes dead skin cells
  • Smooths out heavy facial lines
  • Increases blood circulation

It’s suitable for all skin types, being customisable for your specific facial needs.

The “lunchtime peel” offers a superficial skin treatment with limited recovery time. This means you can get back to work or pick up the kids from school without a red face! Instead, your skin will have a toned appearance, leaving you feeling refreshed for the rest of the day and longer.

A chemical peel works by using gentle abrasion with glycolic acid or lactic acid. Some treatments include both chemical exfoliation methods. This treatment helps to remove dead skin and boost collagen production while reducing the wrinkles and other facial blemishes.

3. Microneedling

Does the thought of needles put you off booking a facial during your lunch break? With microneedling, you don’t need to worry. This treatment can be done during lunchtime with minimal recovery time. If you’re looking for a way to tone your skin, minimise wrinkles and other fine lines and reduce acne scarring, then this is the facial treatment for you.

Microneedling works on the principle of boosting collagen to plump up your skin. It improves the elasticity of your skin while increasing cell turnover and blood circulation. Your skin will look brighter, nourished and rejuvenated after a microneedling session.

Using very fine sterilised needles, your therapist will pierce your skin with a tool similar to a pen. This action stimulates the skin to react and start the process of healing the wound by producing collagen. While the procedure sounds painful, a pain-numbing cream is used to minimise the piercing sensation.

Dermasweep Facials

Another cosmetic treatment popular for lunchtime facials is the Dermasweep. It works well for all skin types including sensitive skins. It helps to tone your skin while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. After one lunch break treatment, you’ll leave the salon feeling younger, fresher and invigorated.

The Dermasweep facial is known for its immediate results which makes it a great cosmetic treatment if you have a special date for the evening. It’s non-invasive and takes 30 minutes, giving your skin an improved and toned appearance.

It works by using exfoliation to improve blood circulation in your skin with a bristle-tipped brush. An infusion of serums with Vitamin C or peptides is then applied to hydrate and increase the production collagen. Your skin will be rejuvenated while feeling cool and fresh.

Final Thoughts

There’s no reason why you shouldn’t treat yourself to a lunchtime cosmetic treatment. With some of the facial options available and mentioned above, half an hour can make a world of difference in how you look AND feel.

Lunchtime facials are designed to rejuvenate your skin while improving the collagen production. These results in your skin feeling nourished, moisturised and toned in no time at all. What’s more, they’re suitable for all skin types.

Book your next self-care treatment and feel invigorated and refreshed before tackling the afternoon tasks. You’ll be glad you did and looking in the mirror will prove it was all worthwhile!
