Beauty Break: OrangeTwist Treatments That Take an Hour or Less

There’s a lot you can do with a lunch hour. There’s a leisurely meal, of course. But you can also spend that time to run errands, work out or call a friend. But what if you thought about that hour as an investment in your skin care?

OrangeTwist has a long list of treatments that you can do in about an hour or less and return to your desk feeling refreshed, glowing and gorgeous.

HydraFacial: HydraFacial is a next-level treatment that leaves your skin clear, soft and ready for the rest of the day. The three-step process includes hydradermabrasion, which gently removes dead skin through a water process; a chemical peel that promotes elasticity and firmness while diminishing fine lines and spots; automated painless extractions through a special vacuum as well as the delivery of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and peptides. Each HydraFacial is custom-tailored to your skin’s specific needs.

Laser hair removal: Nobody likes stubble. For effortless and non-invasive, pain-free hair removal, ask about OrangeTwist’s laser treatments for your legs, bikini area, face, back or arms. While it’s not a permanent solution to removing hair, the light emitted by the laser works on the hair follicle, discouraging immediate grow-back. There could be a little tenderness or redness on the treated area, so you may want to wear something loose on that day.

Forma: Considered a “non-surgical facelift,” Forma is a radio-frequency treatment that prompts elastin and collagen production, resulting in better definition and smoother, tighter skin. You may experience residual redness, but you’ll see instant results. This can also work on other areas of the body such as arms and breasts.

BotoxDysport: Modern neurotoxin injectables help to minimize or disappear fine lines and wrinkles, so that you look like yourself, only younger and better rested. These ultra-targeted treatments help to block the nerves’ signals to muscles that get frequent use (such as the “elevens” frown lines at the brows and crow’s feet from the corners of the eyes).

Fillers: OrangeTwist offers an extensive menu of fillers, and our experts will determine which ones are the most appropriate to help you reach your goals. These can help increase volume and improve definition in areas such as cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, creases around the mouth and the small vertical lines around the lips. There are a lot of myths around what fillers are and aren’t, and we’re happy to answer any questions you may have. Most treatments take about 20 minutes, show instant results that can last up to 18 months, and cause minimal to zero bruising and swelling.

Vitamin injections: Yes, you can always take your vitamins, but to really see an impact on your skin and in your mood, gluteal injections of the “Myer’s Cocktail” can help to increase red blood cell production, regulate sleep, improve your mood and raise energy levels. The specialized blend of magnesium, calcium, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12, selenium, niacinamide, thiamine, riboflavin, and vitamin C takes just a minute or two and you can be on your way. Getting these water-soluble vitamins in a shot may be a better way for people to get the nutrients that may not be fully absorbed when taken orally.

Ultherapy: Considered the premier “non-surgical facelift,” it takes 60 minutes or less to do this ultrasound treatment on a smaller area, such as brows or the neck. By triggering collagen production, skin becomes firmer and smoother. There’s zero downtime, and you can resume your regular activities immediately, though some patients may feel some flushing or redness in the treated area.

Forever Young IPL: This intense pulsed light treatment works on photo-aging symptoms that include pigmentation, broken blood vessels, fine wrinkles, and sagging skin. By heating the outer layers of the skin, the body’s natural healing defenses kick in. You don’t lose any skin, and you’ll start seeing the results in about a week. This is appropriate for the face, hands, chest, shoulders, arms, and back.

ZO Skin Health Stimulator Peel: Your aesthetician will administer this light chemical peel to fight signs of aging, such as discoloration and fine lines—then send you home with products to moisturize and soothe your skin afterward. This unique combination of exfoliants, retinol and other ingredients that serve as protectants may feel uncomfortable while being applied and may or may not peel afterward. But you’re able to return to your normal activities (it’s better if you stay out of the sun) right afterward.

CoolSculpting: During a lunch hour, you can target a small area, such as your chin or upper arms with one machine, or double up machines for a larger one in half the amount of time. CoolSculpting is a way to permanently remove fat in certain areas by freezing it away. Though you can get back to work immediately, it takes up to three months to see full results because the dead fat cells are eliminated naturally, over time.

And of course, we don’t want you to leave hungry after sacrificing your lunch hour—that’s why we have complimentary snacks and beverages at all OrangeTwist locations. Because we not only want you to look good, we want you to feel good, too.
