The Holiday season is here and holiday stress can wreak havoc on your skin. A surge in stress hormones can cause acne, wrinkles, rosacea, and just make your skin look worn out and tired. You don’t have to lose your glow this holiday season, though. There are many skin rejuvenating treatments that will make you and your skin look refreshed and revived, even under the most stressful situations.
A chemical peel is a chemical solution applied to the skin that causes exfoliation and peeling, leaving a smooth, more youthful appearance to the skin. There are different types of peels to make you look years younger, refreshed, and smooth out rough, dry skin, acne scars and uneven pigment on your face, neck, and chest. Which peel is right for you? For a fresh glow right before a party or event, a light peel is the perfect choice. The medium and deep peel offer more dramatic results, but I recommend at least two weeks between the treatment and your first holiday party.
Tip: Make sure to allow enough time for your skin to peel and heal before a big event or party.
PRP Microneedling is the perfect treatment for those with deeper lines, wrinkles, scarring and collagen loss caused by stress and age. After a PRP microneedling session your skin will be lifted, tighter, and rejuvenated. After just one visit you’ll have a holiday glow so bright, no one will even guess you’ve got stress!
Tip: You will need a few days for your skin to heal and be your canvas for the holiday palette.
Laser/IPL Treatment is an all around winner to eliminate sun spots, blemishes and redness on your face, chest, arms and hands. Laser/IPL treatment is an exciting technology that uses wavelengths of light to effect changes to the skin. Only 3 sessions are usually needed, there is little to no downtime, and a dramatic improvement is usually seen two weeks after the first treatment.
Tip: For best results be sure to schedule your treatment 2-3 weeks prior to your holiday events.
Botox, Juvederm, and Voluma are a few of the most popular injectable treatments. This non-invasive procedure lifts, smooths and enhances hollowness, wrinkles and volume loss making you look refreshed and younger immediately. Many people are afraid of these options for fear of looking like “plastic face”. Part of the art and science of this technique is injecting filler in small amounts in strategic areas to restore volume loss in the face that occurs with aging. Botox is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles that occur by relaxing the over expressive muscles more commonly seen in the upper face. Tailoring the treatment to your needs allows for some motion without having frozen face! When approached from the viewpoint of restoration, the results are a fresh, more youthful and natural appearance.
Tip: Botox typically requires 7-10 days to see the full result. Injectable fillers give you immediate results, but allow at least a few days before any big event or party.
