Between last-minute shopping, never-ending return lines and spending a little too much time with distant relatives, it’s no secret that the holiday season can be a bit stressful. But that doesn’t mean you have to put your own sanity and wellbeing on the backburner for the sake of spreading cheer for all to hear.

So why not take a moment out of your hectic holiday season to relax, unwind and pamper yourself with these post-holiday med spa treatments?

1. CoolSculpting®

Are you feeling discouraged about areas of stubborn pockets of fat such as love handles, bra rolls or belly pooches that are still there, despite sticking to your diet over the holidays? The problem could be that some isolated areas of fat are difficult or nearly impossible to get rid of through diet and exercise alone.

If you can relate, treating yourself to CoolSculpting® could be the answer you’ve been looking for. CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical body contouring treatment that uses the process of cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy pesky fat that otherwise won’t budge.

2. BOTOX®

Feel like the stress of the holidays has caused lines and wrinkles to pop up out of nowhere? BOTOX® is a relatively quick and easy med spa treatment that can help to smooth away the look of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and “11 lines.” And the best part? You don’t even have to schedule a day off of work. BOTOX usually only takes about 20 minutes or less to perform and it doesn’t require any downtime.

Most people enjoy their smooth, youthful-looking BOTOX results for 3 to 6 months before a touch-up is needed.

3. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can, in some cases, be very nicely combined with BOTOX for enhanced results. Other times, fillers can create a smoother complexion and a fuller, younger-looking facial contour when used on their own.

Like BOTOX, dermal fillers can usually fit right into your lunch break and shouldn’t require downtime.

4. Micropeel

If you’d like to improve more than one aspect of your stressed-out complexion at a time, a micropeel might be for you. This treatment involves three steps:

  1. Dermaplaning – A type of manual exfoliation to help remove flakes of dead skin, dirt and debris from the surface of your skin.
  2. A gentle chemical peel – This step involves a type of chemical exfoliation to resurface the skin even further. Collagen stimulation is another added benefit of a chemical peel.
  3. Cryotherapy – Finish with a refreshing freezing procedure that can have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits.

5. Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is another great post-holiday med spa treatment that can help you to get that refreshed, revitalized look. It is a type of manual exfoliation that works by gently blowing abrasive crystals against the surface of the skin. The result is a smoother, brighter-looking complexion that only takes about 30 minutes to achieve.

Microdermabrasion could be a good option for you if you’re bothered by acne scars, sun damage, skin discoloration or an uneven skin texture.

6. Lash Extensions

Want a fun, flirty new look without having to spend hours in the makeup aisle, only to find that the products you’ve chosen can’t offer the dramatic results you want? Treat yourself to high-quality lash extensions like Xtreme Lashes® this post-holiday season.

Xtreme Lashes are applied one-by-one to give you the most natural-looking, effortless look currently available.
