Working from home had its advantages but going back to the office has its perks too. If you’ve ever felt that you don’t have enough hours in the day to squeeze in some self-care time, let alone work, then this article is for you. It really is important to take your lunch break and reset. There are a number of ways to decompress at lunchtime, be it a Pilates class or catching up with a friend over a meal. It should come as no surprise that by taking some time out of your day, you should feel recharged for the afternoon.  But how can you make the most of those 60 precious minutes on your office days? We wanted to propose the idea of a trip to the doctor to boost your afternoon productivity. Here are our top three lunchtime treatments you should be slotting into your diary:

The no downtime lunch-time peel

Dr Lauren recommends the V&G Signature Glow “This resurfacing treatment uses active ingredients by pH formula, which penetrates, exfoliates and targets specific skin concerns such as redness and leaves the skin looking revived. This is a great treatment if you’re in need of a quick lunchtime fix. Our patients notice an immediate improvement. We would advise a treatment every six weeks in order to maintain healthy-looking skin.”

Following a consultation to discuss your skin’s needs the V&G Signature Glow may be suggested if you wish to improve the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, overall skin tone, redness and spots. The common misconception is that face peels require days of downtime, but technology has come a long way. Unlike traditional chemical peels which work by exfoliation, The V&G Signature Glow stimulates cell regeneration throughout the layers of your skin. That’s why at Victor & Garth we refer to these as resurfacing treatments. This means you can expect little in the way of, irritant effects such as peeling, redness and swelling. 

Red Light Treatment is the 30-minute skin rejuvenator

If you are looking for a way to treat problematic skin or just want to boost a dull, lifeless complexion, a course of red light therapy may be just what you need. All we need is 30 minutes of your day.

Laura recommends Red Light Treatment, “This relaxing treatment uses low wavelength red light, which has been proven to be effective at reducing a huge range of skin concerns, ranging from acne to sun damage. It’s incredibly relaxing and all that is required of you is to lie back whilst the light gets to work. It’ll leave you with brighter, radiant skin.’

Cosmetic acupuncture is the natural approach to treating fine lines

Cosmetic acupuncture, sometimes referred to as an “acupuncture facelift” or “facial rejuvenation,” is a firm staple of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It has become incredibly popular recently and is favoured by those seeking alternative treatments for fine lines and wrinkles. This non-invasive treatment involves the insertion of ultra-fine micro needles into specific acupuncture points in the face, to improve microcirculation as well as the superficial appearance of skin. We promise, it is more relaxing than it sounds!Dr Miriam recommends cosmetic acupuncture, “We’ve seen a huge uptake in this treatment, which noticeably regenerates the skin through a micro-wound healing response. It addresses multiple factors of ageing – from smoothing lines, to enhancing the firmness and volume of skin. To see a noticeable difference, we would advise a course of at least 6 sessions.”
