Cosmetic Procedures for the Holidays
The holiday season is a time of celebration, relaxation, and reflection. The festive period also offers people an ideal opportunity to get cosmetic work done, as the added stress of worrying about finding time off from work to recover is relieved for several weeks.
On the other hand, for some patients, a hectic social calendar over the holidays means it may not be too practical to get an invasive surgery. But non-invasive procedures, such as injectables, may offer the ideal opportunity to look your best in the hundreds of holiday photographs that will inevitably happen.
Here, the expert team at Etre Cosmetic Dermatology & Laser Center discusses the best surgical and non-surgical options for you to consider before the holidays arrive.
Non-Surgical, Minimally Invasive Holiday Procedures
The holidays mean parties, family gatherings, and pictures!
Looking your absolute best during this time means you can have a lasting impression on your peers and family members. One way of looking tip-top without needing a procedure is minimally invasive spa treatments.
Dermal fillers are amongst the most popular variety of these treatments. Perfect for adding contour, definition, and vitality to any face, dermal fillers are perfect for smoothing out skin showing fine lines and wrinkles, particularly surrounding the eyes and nose.
They are wonderful for a pre-party touch-up, as results will be visible between forty-eight to seventy-two hours after your visit.
Similarly, other injectables such as BOTOX® and Dysport can be used to reduce the appearance of more advanced forehead wrinkles tactfully.
Finally, after months of summer sun, the end-of-year holiday season is a great time to revamp your skin and bring out its vibrance. Chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing are fantastic non-surgical procedures that remove freckles and sunspots and create an even skin tone.
Surgical Holiday Choices
Cosmetic surgery procedures that improve the face’s appearance do provide incredible aesthetic results— but there is a period of downtime associated with these surgeries.
Patients can make the most of the holiday time-off-work and make a full recovery from these procedures before returning to full-time work.
Many of these procedures, particularly liposuction, require the use of compression garments for proper healing. The cooler weather and indoors-vibe make wearing compressions garments much more comfortable at this time of year, and these garments can be easily concealed.
Timing your cosmetic surgery is one of the most important factors to consider as you decide how to move forward with your life-changing procedure. The holiday season can be a time of joy and looking your best with a minimally invasive procedure, or it can be an excellent opportunity to heal and after surgery and look your best going back to work.
