What is a lunchtime facelift?

Lunchtime facelifts are procedures that can be done with short healing times and almost immediate results. You don't have to go under the knife in search of younger-looking skin. These days, the bulk of procedures designed to restore a more youthful appearance to your face (and sometimes hands and neck) are done on an outpatient basis, often in the doctor's office.

These "lunchtime" facelifts include treatment with Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA), also known as botulinum toxin, to improve the look of frown lines, as well as dermal fillers to plump out wrinkles and laser procedures to smooth away bumps, age spots and scars. The main reason for the procedures? To look more relaxed, less stressed and rejuvenated. Today's nonsurgical cosmetic procedures are relatively affordable and very accessible.
