The liquid facelift, laser genesis, chemical peel, IPL, and facials can all be done in about an hour.
How will you look immediately after? Is it safe to go in public?
A liquid facelift involves multiple dermal fillers which reduce sagging and wrinkles. Some bruising might occur, but that can easily be covered with some makeup.
Laser Genesis boasts no downtime. It’s a non-invasive treatment that improves redness, Rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, uneven texture, and scarring.

It might be a good idea to do IPL toward the end of the week versus lunchtime. The treatment may leave your skin red and swollen for 24 to 48 hours. The brown spots “lift,” look darker, and then flake off in about 10 days. For redness, the patient will have more significant downtime and experience bruises and some swelling.
