Top Holiday Prep Tips from a Skin Expert

Holiday prep with BOTOX, Fillers, CoolSculpting, Latisse and Fotofacials in Oakville Ontario. Our resident Medical Aesthetician Bethany shares the best ways to glow this festive season.

It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is just around the corner! We are on that precipice before our social calendars fill up and our to-do list goes into overdrive. In anticipation of how busy life gets, our Medical Aesthetician Bethany has put together her list of the best treatments to help you glow this festive season.

Hit refresh with injectables.

A big part of looking refreshed is getting enough sleep; however, the signs of aging such as volume loss in the upper cheeks and permanent frown lines can make us appear tired and stressed, no matter how many hours of shut-eye we get.

This gets compounded with less sleep during the busy holiday season. Fortunately, with a quick injection or two, we can quickly refresh our appearance without downtime. To achieve this, we turn to neuromodulators such as BOTOX COSMETIC® and dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM®. Both are gold standard treatments for non-invasive facial rejuvenation that can be done over a lunch hour.

BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments help to soften deep expression lines while dermal fillers replenish and apply volume to our features. The effect of these two combined treatments is often likened to a non-invasive face lift, as you can see from the results below.

 

BEFORE & AFTER INJECTABLE FILLERS

 

Fotofacials for a festive glow.

The next step in looking your best is addressing the clarity of your complexion. One of my favourite treatments to achieve this is with a series of Fotofacials.

This gentle, non-invasive light therapy repairs the negative effects of the sun that lead to brown spots, redness, and dullness. With each pulse of light, heat energy is delivered into the skin, specifically targeting the damaged cells. Once treated, these cells are discarded either through the elimination pathways of the body, or shed from the skin’s surface.

This results in a more uniform skin tone, and overall luminosity. The recovery from this treatment is a breeze, and the results are noteworthy, which is why it’s one of my go-to treatments for glowing skin.

I recommend a series of treatments to begin (usually one treatment a month for 3-4 months). This gets your skin into optimal condition, after which point, yearly follow-ups help to maintain your results.

 

CoolSculpting® a bright new you.

This time of year can quickly become tough on our waistlines as we indulge in festive feasts. The good news is that a quick, non-surgical treatment can keep us trim and feeling fabulous in our holiday best.

There’s a reason CoolSculpting is the world’s most popular non-surgical fat reduction treatment. It delivers results! At Oakville Plastic Surgery, we’re equipped with the latest treatment applicators (CoolAdvantage, CoolMini and CoolSculpting Petite) which allows us to provide fast treatments and target smaller areas like underneath the chin and the upper arms.

The results of a CoolSculpting treatment take about 4 weeks to begin to appear, and up to 3 months to be fully realized. Depending on your goals, one treatment may be all you need to realize satisfying results.

 

Bat those lashes.

Who doesn’t relish having alluring eyes in festive photos? Rather than investing in lash extensions that can be damaging to your natural lashes, why not grow your own?

Latisse® is a must-have lash enhancement treatment for anyone who wants high-impact lashes. A nightly application of the prescription treatment helps your lashes to grow longer, fuller and darker in a matter of weeks.

 

Don’t delay.

It’s the ideal time to get started on any of the treatments I’ve recommended in order to achieve your goals in time for your holiday events. Because the most subtle and natural-looking results (which is what we want) take a little time to develop. I’d love to help you get started!
