If you’re anything like us, you cringe at Halloween decorations in August and Christmas decorations before Halloween. But when it comes to aesthetic treatments, it’s not too early to prepare for the holiday season.
The holidays are a time of warm gatherings, fun parties, and lots of photos. Many of us want to look our best for the social events that are coming. Even no-downtime procedures require a bit of advance planning for best results. The right time to begin treatment is now! Here is a Calendar of Beauty you should use when getting ready for all the celebrations.
Thermalift – If a minimally-invasive skin tightening procedure is what you’ve been considering, act now. There is little to no downtime with Thermalift, but since it stimulates collagen for a tightening effect over the course of months, you’ll want to get started now to look lifted and tighter by Christmas on nearly any part of your face or body!
Plastic Surgery – You might be surprised to discover that procedures like Neck Lifts and Liposuction do not require as much recovery time as you may think. However, schedule your plastic surgery consultation now to avoid the holiday rush and allow ample time for pre-op, the procedure, recuperation, and post-op activities. You will look and feel fantastic by Thanksgiving!
Fillers – Hanukkah is late this year, but procrastinators be aware! Dermal fillers and volumizers such as Restylane and Voluma are perfect for filling in facial creases and restoring lost volume to your cheeks. Occasionally there is a bit of residual swelling and bruising at the injection site for a few days to a week after treatment. So be sure book in plenty of time to achieve the look you want before all the festivities begin!
Laser Treatments and DermaPen – Whether your concern is sun damage, unwanted hair, acne or skin texture issues, getting started early is essential. Most laser and light technologies such as Laser Hair Removal, IPL, Acne Laser and the DermaPen can be performed without much downtime. However, more than one treatment session may be recommended to see optimal results. Be ready in time for that first winter trip you’ve booked in better climates!
Neuromodulators – Dysport, Xeomin and similar products require very little or no downtime to eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. But some of these treatments can take a few days to two weeks for the full effect to be viewed. SkinCenter includes a complimentary touch-up visit two to three weeks after the initial treatment, so you’ll want to allow enough time. Early December treatment is best and you will look refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated by New Year’s Eve!
Skin Care – Microdermabrasion, peels and facials provide a deep exfoliation clearing congested skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and giving you back a healthy glow. Timing your treatment several days to a week or two before holiday events will ensure that you look radiant without any residual redness or short-term irritation they sometimes cause.
Don’t let the stressful holiday season bring you down. With a little time and planning, SkinCenter can help you to be your most beautiful and confident you before we can say Happy New Year!
