December is a month full of social engagements, work parties, and family events. It’s no secret that we all want to look our best during the holidays and it doesn’t hurt to have a little help. We have listed three of the top aesthetic procedures to help you look your absolute best during the holiday season. According to the American Academy of Facial Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery, cosmetic procedures increase by 25% during the holiday season with minimally invasive procedures at the top of the list.
Botox: there really is no downtime with Botox injections. However, allow yourself up to 7 days to receive full results. Botox is an injectable treatment that helps to relax the facial muscles to give you a smoother appearance. Some of the most popular areas to treat are frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Typically Botox injections last anywhere between three to four months.
Dermal Fillers: are injectable treatments that help to fill in deep wrinkles and add volume to the face. These session usually take about 30 minutes to complete and you can expect some bruising, however, not always. We suggest to not drink red wine, take over the counter pain reliever with the exception of Tylenol, or fish oil before this treatment. Allow yourself time to come in 10 days to 2 weeks in advance before your big event in case of bruising. Popular areas to treat are lips, marionette lines, and cheeks. Filler can give you a more refreshed; younger look when you are worn out from all the holiday hustle and bustle.
HydraFacial MD: is the “New Generation” of Microdermabrasion. It incorporates all the benefits of a Microderm, but it also includes deep skin cleansing, extractions, and antioxidant infusion. It is a procedure that can be customized for unique skin concerns and has a no downtime. This particular procedure takes about an hour and leaves you with glowing skin. If you are looking to relax and melt some of the holiday stress away this procedure is just for you!
