There was a time in the not-too-distant past when cosmetic treatments were viewed as the purview of the rich and famous. Not anymore. Today's cosmetic treatments are more effective, efficient and affordable than ever, making them perfect for everyone from the Hollywood starlet to the stay-at-home mom.
Here's a look at six cutting-edge treatments so fast and effective you can have them done during your lunch break:
Angelina Jolie has them. So do Scarlett Johansson and Rihanna. And now thanks to the Pucker Up injection, you can get full, plump lips as well.
Pucker Up is a procedure that uses dermal fillers to subtly enhance the natural shape of your mouth. It typically costs around $700 and can last for as long as a year.
What if you could rejuvenate your skin in one visit to your dermatologist? You can, thanks to Halo, which uses lasers to get rid of damage to your skin that's due to sun exposure in a matter of minutes.
Halo reduces wrinkles, fine lines, shrinking pores and leaves your skin looking lovely for years to come. Ask your dermatologist for a consultation and about cost.
So easy, you can do it on your own, Mesolyft is an effective way to both brighten and tighten your skin.
Mesolyft uses a process called micro-needling to remove dead cells and send therapeutic solutions deep into the epidermis. All you have to do to achieve brighter, tighter skin is order your Mesolyft online, put a little cream onto the Mesolyft device and then spread it onto the skin around your lips, eyes and other areas of concern.
If you struggle with unsightly sweat stains, you may want to take a close look at MiraDry.
MiraDry is a painless procedure during which your skincare physician will press a device against your armpits to eliminate some of the sweat glands, which your body doesn't need.
By the time the MiraDry procedure is done, you'll notice an 82 percent reduction in perspiration that will last for as long as a year.
It's been called a six-pack-shaping shortcut because SculpSure is all about tightening and toning the belly and waistline.
The procedure takes about 25 minutes and uses a heavy light to destroy fat cells. After the treatment is done, your body will naturally get rid of the fat cells, leaving your problem area tighter and more toned in as few as six weeks.
The good news is that fat cells don't regenerate, so your new abs should be permanent.
If gravity is taking a toll on your bottom, it may be time to take a look at the Thread Lift. This is one of those cosmetic treatments that might make you wince because it involves inserting sutures just beneath the skin. Your doctor will then gently pull up on the sutures to subtly provide a lift that can last for at least six months.
Thread Lift also works for the face, breasts and thighs.
