We all want to look our holiday best in our annual Christmas photos, but what you might not know is that there’s a little secret — or five — that you can use to win holiday pictures this year. Stop in to your favorite med spa for one (or more!) of these top med spa treatments for the holidays.
BOTOX® and dermal fillers continue to be two of the most popular med spa treatments any time of year, and especially before the holidays. That’s because these injectable treatments can be done on your lunch break, don’t require extensive downtime and offer smooth, natural-looking results in practically no time.
Consider BOTOX if you’re looking to whisk away crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles or “11 lines” between your brows. Fillers can be a great choice if you’d like to add a little extra plumpness to your cheeks or lips, or if lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth are keeping you from looking and feeling your best.
2. Profound® Skin Tightening
Schedule injectable treatments at least two weeks before your holiday photo shoot so any swelling can diminish in time.
If it’s more than wrinkles that you’re worried about showing up in your Christmas photos, Profound® Skin Tightening might be the solution you’ve been looking for. This non-surgical med spa treatment uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling to stimulate collagen production and cell renewal.
This process can address sagging skin and wrinkles at the same time, with results gradually developing over the next weeks and months.
Microneedling can also be used on its own or in conjunction with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to rejuvenate the skin, getting rid of blemishes like acne scars, enlarged pores, lines and wrinkles and a dull, lackluster complexion.
Microneedling works by using tiny needles to cause very small “micro-injuries” to the skin. This process stimulates collagen to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin from the inside out. PRP can also be used to enhance this process.
4. Double Chin Treatment
No one wants a dreaded double chin creeping up in their holiday photos. If this is a cosmetic concern for you, ask your trained med spa professional about Kybella™, a non-surgical injectable treatment aimed at removing excess fat under the chin.
Kybella works best in a series of 2 to 6 treatments, so this one is better started early to ensure optimal results in time for the holidays.
Maybe you feel like your complexion could just use a bit of an uplift before the holidays. Why not try a relaxing HydraFacial®, which comes in several levels so that you can customize yours to match your specific skin type and concerns?
HydraFacial usually takes about 45 minutes and can address a wide range of skin problems, including dryness, oiliness, uneven skin tone and texture, lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores and more. There is no downtime whatsoever after getting a HydraFacial, and you should notice an immediate improvement in the look and feel of your skin.
