The holiday season is here, and many people are preparing for family parties and social gatherings. Whether you are planning a cruise with the family between Christmas and New Year’s, or you have a big New Year’s party with friends, you might consider a few cosmetic options to ensure that you look your best. It’s important that you feel comfortable and confident when you step onto the dance floor in that little black dress.
If you want to look great during the holiday season, then you might discuss a few options with a plastic surgeon. Some treatments, such as a breast augmentation or a mommy makeover require that you plan a few months in advance. But, there are a few things that you can do if you want to see results before Christmas or New Year’s:
- Botox: These injections are used to weaken muscles temporarily, which is beneficial to relax wrinkles. We can target the lines on your face, such as frown lines, forehead creases or Crow’s feet. Botox treatment only requires a few minutes in our office, but you can enjoy the benefits for up to three months. You won’t have immediate results, so the best strategy is to schedule your appointment about three weeks before the holiday event.
- Dermal Filler: If you need immediate results for a party next week, then consider dermal fillers instead of Botox. These injectables are fillers that plump up the skin to eliminate wrinkles. They can also be used to smooth the appearance of scars, lift the tissue, and increase volume on the cheeks and around the eyes. Sometimes, patients experience minor swelling or bruising from the injections. So, it is best to schedule your appointment as far in advance as possible. The results usually last up to six to twelve months.
- Eyelid Lift: Get rid of the saggy, wrinkled eyes with a blepharoplasty treatment, also known as an eyelid lift. This treatment eliminates the extra tissue on the eyelid so that your eyes appear to be brighter and younger. You will notice the results right away, but you should plan time for healing so that the swelling and bruising can go away. Most people need three or four weeks of healing time.
If you want to exude self-confidence at your upcoming holiday party, then schedule an appointment right away with our team. You can visit our office right now, and enjoy the results by the time you attend the events later this month. Don’t procrastinate the appointment, because it is often best to give yourself a little bit of healing time before going to a big party.
