While certain cosmetic procedures are highly effective at enhancing both your appearance and confidence, some individuals avoid having these types of procedures for the sake of avoiding downtime, which can interfere with work, family, and social obligations. Fortunately, there are several cosmetic treatments available today that offer instant gratification and results for those who aren’t interested in facing a long recovery.

Here are five cosmetic treatments that may have the ability to deliver instant results and gratification, based on your unique skin type and condition.
1. Laser hair reduction reduces unwanted hair
This cosmetic treatment has the potential to permanently reduce unwanted hair on various sections of your body. While several repeat treatments may be needed to achieve permanent hair reduction, you can benefit from smoother, softer, hairless skin immediately following each treatment. Laser hair reduction usually only takes an average of 20 minutes, and may produce some temporary mild redness and swelling.
2. Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells
This procedure improves and enhances the appearance of your skin by removing dead skin cells and treating sun damage, scarring, and wrinkles. Microdermabrasion is painless, non-invasive, and requires no downtime, and produces near-immediate results. While cosmetic treatments such as chemical peels may cause redness for several days following treatment, microdermabrasion is a quick, effective solution for those who want radiant, beautiful skin.
3. Photorejuvenation repairs damaged skin
Photorejuvenation involves the use of Broad Band Light therapy, which repairs older, damaged skin cells so they can lend to younger-looking skin. During treatment, your skin absorbs the therapeutic light and provides immediate results with no downtime. Photorejuvenation treats freckles, sun damage, birthmarks, and other blemishes.
4. Cellfina smooths out cellulite
This treatment smooths the appearance of cellulite on your thighs and buttocks to rejuvenate your natural contours. Cellfina involves the use of a fine, needle-sized device that treats bands of cellulite lying just below your skin. Though Cellfina doesn’t offer immediate results the moment you leave the clinic, you can see results within three days, which is just a fraction of the time you would spend trying to reduce cellulite through diet and exercise.
5. Dermal fillers can contour your face
Some dermal fillers are highly effective at plumping your face and enhancing your contours instantly following treatment, while others require extra time to take effect. Inform your cosmetic surgeon at the time of your initial consultation that you want immediate results from dermal filler treatment. Your surgeon may recommend Voluma XC or Radiesse — both of which can offer instant results based on your skin condition and on the experience of your nurse injector.
The key to achieving satisfactory results from cosmetic treatment is to have realistic expectations about what can and cannot be achieved from the procedure. In some cases, procedures that normally offer fast results may take longer for you based on your unique skin type and skin condition. Inform your cosmetic surgeon about the goals you hope to achieve through cosmetic treatment so both of you can decide on procedures that will work best for you.
