Posted: September 22, 2021  

The phrase “lunchtime” cosmetic  surgery was coined due to the rising popularity of procedures which are brief, involve only minimal discomfort and require no significant recovery or “down time”. In short, these are procedures which can potentially be performed over a patient’s lunch break.

Procedures which fall into this category include Botox injections, chemical peels, vampire facelifts and liquid rhinoplasty as part of a medically supervised skin care regimen.

Here’s where you can get it done in Nairobi 

Botox

Botox is a drug doctors have been using for years to treat wrinkles and facial creases.  

Getting Botox takes only a few minutes. You won’t need anesthesia. The provider uses a small needle to inject Botox into specific muscles, generally in the face, with only minor discomfort.

It generally takes 7 to 14 days to take full effect and lasts 3 to 6 months.

You can get it done at Nairobi ENT clinic.

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel is a minimally-invasive exfoliation procedure that uses chemical solutions to superficially resurface the skin. Skin rejuvenation with exfoliation treatments is based on the principles of wound healing.

By wounding and removing superficial skin layers in a controlled manner, cell renewal is stimulated, with regeneration of a healthier epidermis and dermis. The procedures can last anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes. You may need to undergo the procedure more than once to get the best results. 

You can get it done at Allure Laser, Skin and Aesthetic Medicine Centre.

Vampire Facelift 

The vampire facelift is a procedure that creates the youthful, rejuvenating effects of a facelift without any actual surgery. Instead, the vampire facelift gets its name because it incorporates Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) extracted from blood which is then mixed with different dermal fillers to give patients a refreshed look.

A vampire facelift is a non-invasive procedure requiring only topical anesthesia and typically lasting 1 to 2 hours. There should be minimal downtime, and side effects may include burning, itching, or swelling.

Results last for about a year.  You can get it done at DaVinci Medical Group. READ MORE

It can be done in 15 minutes or less. Results last for 6 months or less. You can get it done at  Avané Clinic. READ MORE

Dermaplaning

The procedure aims to remove fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface look smooth. Dermaplaning is safe for most people, with little risk of side effects This procedure doesn’t require any downtime for recovery, which makes it extremely convenient.
