During the holiday season, it can feel like you don’t have time for all the things you need to do, not to mention making time for yourself. But you also want to look your best for all the celebrations you’ll be attending. Many procedures involve recovery periods, especially invasive surgeries. Luckily, there is a wide variety of non-surgical, minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments to choose from to give you that fresh, healthy glow just in time for the holidays!
Quick and Easy
If you don’t have time for any recovery period at all, one of our facial treatments may be right for you. While some options, such as chemical peels, may require some time for your skin to recover, we also offer services like dermaplaning or our Iconic Signature Facial to give you glowing skin immediately after treatment.
Smooth Fine Lines and Wrinkles
If you are concerned with wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead creases, and have a little more time available, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be a good choice. The treatment is quick, and you will see results in about a week that can last for up to three months. You may see some slight swelling or redness after treatment, but these symptoms should also resolve in about one week. BOTOX® Cosmetic uses a diluted form of botulinum toxin type A to temporarily immobilize tiny facial muscles, which smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles and make you look refreshed and more youthful quickly.
Restore Youthful Volume
As you age, your skin begins to lose volume, which can make you look gaunt and enhance the appearance of wrinkles. Injectable fillers can be used to treat these concerns quickly and without downtime. Most fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is produced by your body and helps keep your skin plump and hydrated. There are several products available to help rejuvenate your appearance.
Restylane®: This formulation is most commonly used to add volume to the lips and tear troughs (under the eyes). It can also be used to smooth out laugh lines and chin wrinkles.
JUVÉDERM® XC: JUVÉDERM® XC is ideal for smoothing creases such as nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and corners of the mouth).
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC: Patients who have lost volume in their cheeks may be good candidates for treatment with this formulation.
BELOTERO BALANCE®: This option integrates with your skin tissue to give you a more youthful appearance while still looking natural.
If you can schedule in a reasonable recovery period and are concerned about sun damage or signs of aging on your face, you may want to consider fractional CO2 laser resurfacing. This procedure uses focused light energy to heat the skin and stimulate collagen production. Your skin will be red afterward, and the recovery period can last for up to two weeks. However, your results can last for five to ten years if you take care of your skin.
