Ever look in the mirror and want to change what you saw right away? Generally speaking, there are no quick fixes—even Botox takes a week to work its magic. But there are few treatments that deliver instant results so you can look younger by lunchtime. Here are three of our favorites.
- La Prairie’s Cellular 3-Minute Peel
When they created this product they weren’t kidding around. The Cellular 3-Minute Peel was created with professional strength AHAs and BHAs, salicylic acid and mixed fruit acids to rid skin of surface debris via exfoliation. That means it’s gentle but still potent peel that polishes and refines skin by speeding fresh, young cells to the surface. It comes with its own salon-level brush applicator so you don’t have give your hands a peel. While they suggest weekly use to seek skin grow firmer and visibly less wrinkled, it’s strong enough to see and feel results after one application. $225 on laprairie.com or at your local Neiman Marcus or Saks Fifth Avenue.
You know the saying “No pain, no gain”? It doesn’t apply here. This quick and painless procedure feels a lot more like a hot stone massage than a serious beauty treatment. But trust us, it works. It reduces wrinkles, and works wonders on necks that are starting to look a little lax. And it does it right after the treatment, although some improvement may continue. So the Venus Freeze is a no-brainer, and if you can get in with Eduardo Ayub at White Light Skin Care in South Pointe, you might be able to have a new neck and face.. today. Starts at $250. White Light Skincare 110 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL (305) 534-7546

This helps tightens everything, lifting drooping eyelids, sagging cheek bones and jaw line for an instant face-lift. The aestheticians at Lapis make the skin appear better too as the facial includes extractions, lift action mask and even a moisturizing foot treatment. Starts at $175. Lapis at Fontainebleau 4441 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL. (305) 538-2000.
