Five Ways to Fight Wrinkles Before the Holidays

As you prepare for holiday gatherings and other festivities in the oncoming weeks, now is a great time to freshen up your look! Wrinkles, fine lines and age spots can disappear with the help of some of today’s innovative cosmetic enhancements, and some can be performed over your lunch hour.

Whether you want to say goodbye to crow’s feet or undergo a complete mini-makeover for the holidays, here are five treatments that will help to defy the signs of aging before party season gets underway!


Thermage is a skin tightening treatment that increases collagen production and strengthens the skin. Fraxel is a skin resurfacing procedure that helps to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, age spots and scars. The ThermaFrax procedure is a combination treatment that can help to rejuvenate your face, freshen up your look and eliminate light wrinkles and lines just in time for holiday season.

Botox Injections

If you’re looking for the ultimate quick fix for wrinkles, head to the cosmetic surgeon’s office or medical spa for a Botox injection. Botox will freeze the muscles that are causing wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes, and you can expect to see results as soon as you leave the doctor’s office. This is an affordable alternative to facelift surgery, can be performed over your lunch break.


Microdermabarsion is a skin “sandblasting” technique that removes dead skin cells, increases circulation to the skin’s surface, and also increases collagen production. When you’re getting ready for the holidays, plan to get your microdermabrasion procedure at least two weeks before a big event. The treatment will help to buff away fine lines, scars and light pigmentation to reveal the healthier layer of skin underneath. This can be performed over your lunch hour and there is now downtime involved.


The SilkPeel is a variation of the traditional microdermabrasion procedure. This treatment will buff away dead skin cells and also deliver a topical solution deep into the pores to lighten skin pigmentation, reduce the appearance of scars, and also to trigger collagen production. You will notice a big difference in the texture and tone of your skin after a single treatment, and can undergo a series of treatments before holiday events to see even better results.

Aluma Wrinkle Treatments

Aluma is another non-invasive wrinkle treatment that uses radio frequency energy to increase collagen production and tightens the skin. The treatment only lasts an average of 30 minutes and works by heating up the dermis while leaving the surface of the skin untouched. You’ll notice that your skin will become tighter, firmer and more toned just a few weeks after your first session, and wrinkles will begin to disappear! Plan to get your first Aluma treatment at least one month before a special event for best results.
