The holiday season is upon us and soon we will be racing around trying to fulfill all our obligations. I know this time of year can be extremely hectic and I didn’t want you to forget about the most important thing – YOU! To keep you on track with your makeover essentials, I put together a simple timeline of a few necessary items to ensure that you are looking and feeling your best this holiday season!
Week 1 – Dermaplane and Chemical Peel
We need to start with a really good exfoliation! Removing that top layer of dull, expired skin will smooth out texture and even out skin tone! Your holiday make-up will look flawless! I like to do this well ahead of time because exfoliation can often lead to redness, dryness and even a temporary breakout. You don’t want to be dealing with a blemish during your holiday festivities so its important to give the skin some time to recover before the big day.
Week 2 – Cosmetic Filler
Now is the time to take care of any volume loss that you may be concerned about. A little cheek augmentation will turn back the hands of time and give you that needed pick me up! And it’s a great time to plump those lips and get them mistletoe ready! With any filler, you will have to contend with a few days of swelling so giving yourself a few weeks before Christmas and New Years is definitely a good idea!
Week 3 – Botox
Break out the neurotoxin! Now that you’ve evened out skin tone and texture and added a little volume back to all the right places, it just makes sense to treat the remaining fine lines and wrinkles you see in the brow, forehead and around the eyes! Botox is a quick and easy treatment that will leave you looking completely refreshed. There will be absolutely no evidence of any holiday stress on that face! Neurotoxins take approximately 7 days to take effect so they will be working just in time for the festivities!
Week 4 – PRP Facial
Its time for the finishing touch with a PRP facial! This microneedling treatment combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) will hydrate the skin, soften lines, shrink pores, smooth texture and even out skin tone. A PRP facial will leave you with an amazing glow that even your in-laws will compliment you on! There is no downtime with this treatment so it can be performed just a few days before a big event or holiday party!
Week 5 – Coolsculpting
Reality sets in! We enjoyed all the holiday parties and definitely overindulged with good food and refreshments! Now it’s time to make some New Year resolutions and start getting ready for the warmer months. Coolsculpting is the perfect option for all your body contouring needs. It will take approximately 3-6 months to see optimal results so there is no time to waste! Beach bodies are made in the winter!
