Seriously, Do NOT Leave Your Med Spa Makeover to the Last Minute

Man and woman embracing in front of holiday lights

It’s that time of year again when you want to look your holiday best for family photos, parties and dinners. While there are plenty of cosmetic treatments perfect for the holidays, you won’t want to wait until the last minute to book your appointment. Even though nonsurgical cosmetic treatments come with the benefit of no downtime, that doesn’t mean you’ll see your results in the snap of a finger.

Use this guide to help you plan your med spa makeover and see beautiful, head-turning results just in time for the holidays.

Pellevé® Wrinkle Reduction

Don’t let lines and wrinkles keep you from absolutely loving the way you look in this year’s holiday photos. Pellevé® wrinkle reduction is a cutting-edge cosmetic treatment that uses radiofrequency waves to heat the dermis of your skin, where important proteins like collagen are produced. This triggers your skin to produce more collagen, which naturally decreases as we age.

In the weeks and months after your Pellevé treatment, your skin should begin to ramp up its production of these important proteins, resulting in a smoother and younger-looking complexion. But because it can take around 30 days to start seeing these amazing results, you’ll want to schedule your treatment well before the annual Christmas or New Year’s party.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

When it comes to laser skin rejuvenation, you’ve got lots of options. But no matter which one you choose, it’s best to start your first session weeks before your holiday festivities. Some laser treatments can cause slight redness or swelling, so you want to make sure you give your skin some time to recharge before standing under the mistletoe.

Additionally, some people see optimal results after a series of laser skin treatments, so if you want to see your full results in time for Kris Kringle to wiggle down the chimney, start even sooner.


You should continue to see improvements in your skin’s appearance as much as 90 days after your Pellevé treatment.

Sometimes called “lunchtime procedures,” injectables like BOTOX® and dermal fillers are some of the most popular cosmetic treatments around, especially for the holidays. That’s because these treatments usually take 20 minutes or less to complete, and you should be able to see pretty quick results.

That said, you still want to schedule your injectable appointment at least 2 weeks before your holiday party. Sometimes, it takes this amount of time for the product to completely settle into place and produce your final look. Plus, it’s not uncommon to see some bruising and swelling for 1 to 2 weeks after getting injections.

Professional Skin Care

It might seem like updating your skin care regimen would be an easy last-minute fix right before a big event. But the truth is that if you don’t start using your new products for a few weeks, you’re probably not going to see much by way of results.

Not only do topical products take some time of regular use to work, but they can also cause redness, flaking or other reactions if your skin isn’t used to particular ingredients. So it’s best to play it safe and hold off on starting new products until after your holiday party, unless you have enough time to introduce them into your routine in advance.

And for the best results, work with an experienced professional who can recommend the right products for your skin.
