5 Instant-Gratification Beauty Treatments

Today, we live in a world where the five-minute nose job is an actuality, and where a vaginal rejuvenation can take place over your lunch hour. A world where you can take fat from your midsection and pump up your rump, and then hit the beach two weeks later with a derriere that Kim K herself would envy. 

If you are looking for something that gives quick results without much downtime, the new world of aesthetic enhancements is your oyster. Of course, we can't stress enough the importance of doing your own thorough research and consulting with several surgeons, as well as others who have received your desired treatment — but we've also done a little groundwork for you already. Here, we speak with several experts to get the lowdown on five most popular “instant beauty” procedures with absolutely zero downtime.


#1. Injectables
Botox: Like the Kardashians, BOTOX™ is largely misunderstood, but has a huge loyal following. Microinjections of this purified protein simply slows the muscles that contract hundreds of times a day, eventually etching in permanent wrinkles due to increased dermal damage along those lines. Artful administration can lift the brow and lip corners for a sincere and refreshed look, while protecting skin from further accelerated ageing and rapidly relaxing lines without freezing out vital expressions. After all, you are not a tree, so nobody should tell your age at a glance from the lines on your face.

This is also the red carpet secret behind many mysteriously slim and fabulous V-shaped jawlines, Botox Jaw microinjection allows you to shape up safely and discretely without surgery or downtime. A small step from you could mean a big step towards gorgeousness

Best For: Wrinkles, Lines, Creases & Facial Slimming
Time Required: 30 minutes


Natural FillersHyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm® or Restylane® are smart and easy ways to add volume and smoothness to your skin. They are made of hyaluronic acid gel that closely resembles the body's own hyaluronic acid. It is long lasting, but not permanent. Both Juvederm® and Restylane® are FDA-approved for use to restore volume and youth to the face. Fillers enhance your natural looks by restoring your skin's volume, creating softness and revitalizing your appearance.




The Nose: Occupying the prime location in our facial neighbourhood, this central feature is, unfortunately, most commonly the weakest in a typical Asian face. To target the frequent issues of “too flat a bridge, and too wide and short a tip”, Natural Facial fillers are ll-tested and simple way to achieve a perkier, sharper and slimmer schnoze sans surgery. This will not only beautify your side profile, but also visually narrows down a wide Asian face by drawing the spotlight back to the previously flat and featureless central face. Try out this instant non-surgical nose job that you can squeeze in your lunch time!

Best For: Flat Nose Bridge, Short Nose Tips


The Lips: A voluptuous set of puckers speaks volumes about your feminine beauty. Besides being a direct advertisement of your youth and sensuality, subtle plumping and highlighting of strategic central cushions of the lips with hyaluronic acid microinjections can do wonders to enhance your overall facial harmony…or even give the illusion of a smaller, cherry lips in those with an overly wide pair counter-intuitively! For those who want to keep it 'au naturel' yet want to give their best asset an added edge, then Revitalift Lips fits the bill. It's certainly more than just 'lip' service, that's for sure.

Best For: Thin Lips
Time Required: 30 minutes


#2. Skin Tightening & Facial Contour Rejuvenation
Turbocharge your gravity-defying efforts with The Sloane Clinic's 3D Facelift Program, a trailblazing protocol which harvests the synergistic effects of two of the world’s leading anti-ageing superstars – one shot of Ulthera non-surgical ultrasound soft tissue firming treatment, with another of Thermage radiofrequency skin tightener – to restrengthen and rejuvenate skin’s entire collagen supportive structure from within.

Signs of late nights and a fast-paced lifestyle start to quietly vaporise into smoke as existing collagen fibres experience an instant recoil for a quick, subtle bounce back to youth, whilst new collagen genesis occurs over subsequent months to stealthily sculpt a more V-shaped visage, bright opened eyes, and a toned and smoother neckline.

Besides creating a naturally lifted look by unlocking skin’s innate age-healing potential, this walk-in, walk-out youth reviver is safe to help all skin types stay perky year after year, with no needles nor extra commitments of social downtime. 

Best For: Skin Tightening, Lifting, Skin Rejuventation, Deep Lines
Time Required: 60 minutes



#3. Vaginal Tightening
To specifically restore spring in the vajayjay for majority of women who do not have urinary incontinence but would just like to liven things up between the sheets, the Intima Touch specially designed to address vaginal laxity in a painless, non-surgical manner. This lunchtime “facelift” for the vagina uses a patented radiofrequency technology that sends deep penetrating energy into the tissues to stimulate new collagen production in the treated vaginal and introital tissues, restoring its suppleness and firmness over 30-90 days after each treatment. In two clinical studies, 88% of the women showed sustained improvements in vaginal tightness at 12 months after treatment, with a 68% mean increase in their vaginal laxity scores. This correlates well with reported improvement in sexual satisfaction, which was maintained through the 12 months after treatment.

Intima Touch is an in-office treatment that requires no anesthesia and can be completed in about 30 minutes, with no downtime after the procedure. At the beginning of the treatment, the doctor will insert a treatment tip, about the size of your thumb, just inside the vaginal opening. The tip is circumferentially moved around the opening, delivering pulses of radiofrequency energy to the collagen fibers that make up the underlying tissues, while also cooling the vaginal surface.

Best For: Vaginal Laxity
Time Required: 30 minutes


#4. Hair Restoration
Perms, colour and blow-outs – things you do for fuller and healthier-looking locks are, in fact, damaging your hair. Be kinder to your tresses by embarking on the Hair Maximiser Program and get rewarded with an exuberant, lustrous mane. Follicle-stimulating Revage 670 hair laser and strand-strengthening Revitascalp work synergistically at the roots to redeem styling sins, defy meager-maned genetics and counter age-related thinning. It’s quick, painless, and scientifically-proven to nurture a healthier scalp and happier hair (that’s a volume tune up of 40 percent to vavavoom, and an impressive 85 percent success rate of keeping a firm grip on your hair for years to come, to be exact). What’s not to love?

Best For: Hair Rejuvenation, Thin Hair Damaged Hair
Time required: 40 minutes


#5. Non-Invasive Body Contouring
Shrinking the hips and thighs is often an uphill battle as the distribution of fat here is genetically predetermined and classically resistant to diet and exercise. Advanced solutions are usually called for to focus on these pockets of stubborn fat. Besides surgical liposuction, various clinically proven non-invasive modalities present a convenient option for those with mortal fear of needles and scalpels.

A stellar example is the CoolShape Program which combines CoolSculpting Plus (8 sessions) with Body Thermage (1 session), a skin-tightening radiofrequency treatment to smoothen away bumpy cellulite, shrink unsightly stretch marks and sculpt enviably tighter thighs, tushies and tummy. Wage an intelligent war on those stubborn fat areas with CoolSculpting, a clinically-proven non-invasive fat buster. This FDA-approved body sculpting treatment uses a patented controlled cooling technology to target and freeze fats cells without harming the surrounding tissues, delivering a stunning 20 percent fat reduction of each treated area in 60 minutes. Your dream of a svelte silhouette crystallizes over the next 4-8 weeks, as the treated fat cells are cleared by the body’s own natural metabolic processes. Thermage finishes up the job by tightening overlying sagging skin to ensure your body looks velvety smooth and taut

This lunchtime skin lifting treatment is FDA approved for both skin tightening and treating cellulite, allowing you to kill 2 birds with 1 stone in a single treatment.

Best For: Stubborn Fat, Saggy Skin
Time Required: 60 minutes
