Look Your Best with Last Minute Procedures before the Holidays
The holidays are rapidly approaching, meaning many are looking forward to holiday parties with family and friends. This late in the year, many patients are looking for temporary quick enhancements with short recovery times, rather than permanent adjustments that take time to heal. Fortunately, in just a few short days, you can look younger and more refreshed at your holiday gatherings with these procedures.
There’s a good reason why Botox Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. Botox injections are extremely quick and simple, and are an effective way to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Most often used for the forehead, glabella, and crow’s feet, Botox is best administered a couple of weeks before their event, to allow enough time for the neurotoxin to kick in and any bruising to heal. Once administered, Botox lasts for three to four months, ensuring a younger looking appearance through the new year.
Skin Laser Treatment
Another quick and effective holiday-time procedure is the Fraxel laser. This non-ablative laser improves skin tightness and texture, and thus its overall appearance. Redness may occur immediately following treatment, but dissipates after a few days. This is why many patients elect to book the procedure a week or two before their holiday festivities commence.
Get ready to meet your honey under the mistletoe with plump lips just in time for Christmas and the New Year. Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can provide a natural looking lip-enhancement and help balance facial features. These fillers can also smooth “smoker’s lines” with very little downtime. Fillers provide a small change without shocking your family and friends.
Microneedling is another popular last-minute procedure. The process stimulates collagen formation and can help refresh your appearance by improving skin’s texture and imperfections. The process can also be followed by a growth factor serum that penetrates more deeply into skin to repair tiny holes left by the treatment and provide better results.
