Five Ways to Update Your Look for the Holidays
posted on 10/16/2010
Holiday season is right around the corner, which means now is a great time to update your look with a cosmetic procedure. Whether you want to lose a few inches to fit into that holiday party dress, or say goodbye to wrinkles to erase a few years, it’s easy to get a mini-makeover well before the holiday revelries begin!
Get in touch with a medical spa in your area to find out what types of body shaping, facial rejuvenation and skin tightening treatments are a good match for you. Many medical spas offer packages and discounts on treatments that are performed as a series. You can book up a series of treatments leading up to holiday events!
Lose the wrinkles with Botox or fillers. Crow’s feet, fine lines around your mouth, or deep grooves on your forehead can be eliminated with the help of Botox and other injectable fillers. These are quick-fix treatments that can easily take a few years off your appearance. You can head to the doctor’s office over your lunch hour, and enjoy results that last all the way through the holiday season!
Get rid of age spots and fine lines with microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a “lite” version of dermabrasion, a skin resurfacing procedure that can buff away those signs of premature aging. You can undergo a series of microdermabrasion treatments before the holiday season to rejuvenate your face, neck and décolleté. This treatment can be coupled with a chemical peel for even more benefits.
Lose a few inches with VelaShape. Velashape is among the most popular body shaping procedures on the market because it allows you to lose a few inches from your waist, hips and thighs without surgery. The procedure uses infrared technology and heat to tighten and tone your skin. Set up a series of VelaShape treatments if you want to squeeze into that party dress or just want to improve your silhouette for the holidays.
Tone up your midsection with Thermage. If you’re struggling to achieve that six-pack or have some loose skin around your stomach and waist area, settle in for a Thermage skin tightening procedure. This procedure uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to stimulate the body’s natural renewal of collagen. Your skin will appear tighter, toned and smoother after a single treatment, and you’ll see progressive results for the next few months.
Lose a few years with laser resurfacing. If you’ve been thinking about getting a facelift but don’t want to stress about the downtime and healing involved before the holidays, consider a laser resurfacing procedure instead. Fractional laser resurfacing and other laser treatments can eliminate wrinkles and fine lines, zap away age spots and strengthen and tone up your skin to create a rejuvenated look. You can lose several years after just a single treatment, and you’ll only need a few days to heal.
Set up a consultation with a medical spa in your area to discuss the pros and cons of all of the above procedures. Your doctor or medical aesthetician can perform a skin or body consult, and recommend a treatment plan that will help you achieve your goals before the holidays.
