Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, and Black Friday sales are a fading memory, you’re likely to be getting into full-on holiday mode. Whether that means lots of parties with friends, family, and co-workers, or simply endless running around, you will want to look and feel your best. While you probably don’t have time for full-on surgery during this busy season, you might have time to squeeze in one or two quick, minimally invasive treatments.
To Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles, Try Botox Cosmetic:
If you want to smooth away your frown lines, those two vertical lines that form between the eyebrows, or ease your Crow’s Feet, the crinkly lines that format the corners of your eyes, before any holiday parties or before those lines are forever preserved in holiday photos, Botox Cosmetic is your answer.
Botox works on the dynamic wrinkles, lines created after years and years of repeated muscle movements. Unless you’ve managed to keep a still, expressionless face for decades, you’re likely to have a few dynamic wrinkles as you get older.
Timing is important when it comes to Botox. The results from the injectable will last for around three months. However, it does take a while for the results to first appear. If you’re considering Botox in preparation for a major holiday party, such as for a New Year’s Eve bash, you’ll want to schedule your treatment about two weeks in advance. That will give you enough time for the Botox to work and will give you enough time for any potential side effects, such as bruising or swelling, to fade away.
To Reduce Unsightly Fat, Schedule a CoolSculpting Treatment:
Maybe it was the feeling of fullness or bloat that followed your Thanksgiving meal that made you realize that you’re carrying a bit of extra fat. No matter how much you exercise or eat healthfully, that fat just won’t go away. While at one point in time the only option for getting rid of stubborn, exercise and diet resistant fat was surgical liposuction, today, you have a much less invasive, but still effective option: CoolSculpting.
As you might guess from the name, CoolSculpting destroys fat cells by freezing them. Over the course of a few weeks, your body processes and flushes out the destroyed cells, leaving you looking slimmer in the target area.
Although it does take some time for you to see the final results from CoolSculpting, meaning you’re not likely to see the full effect until sometime after the new year, the holidays can be the ideal time for the treatment for a few key reasons. One is that it’s a pretty short and sweet procedure. CoolSculpting takes about one hour to treat a single area. It’s also possible to treat two areas at once, using two separate devices, doubling your results. After the treatment, most people can get right back to their regular activities. That means that even if your holiday social calendar is full, you can still find time in your schedule to go in for a CoolSculpting treatment.
A second reason why CoolSculpting can be great for the holiday season is that it can give you added motivation not to overindulge. You’re more likely to re-think that extra holiday cookie or extra glass of eggnog if you know that you’ve just done something great to help you get the body you want.
Finally, CoolSculpting can help you get a jump on, and actually keep, your New Year’s resolutions. Let’s say you resolve to lose an inch around your stomach in the New Year. Scheduling CoolSculpting in December will definitely help you stick to that resolution.
Saggy Skin? Go with an Ultherapy Session:
Perhaps the holiday season means heading home, seeing old friends from your high school or college days, or seeing your cousins once again. You want to look your best when seeing old friends and acquaintances, but your holiday dance card hasn’t left room for a facelift. Maybe you fall into the category of potential patients who do not have enough skin laxity to make you a good candidate for a facelift, but there is still some degree of loose skin.
Enter Ultherapy, a non-surgical skin tightening treatment. Ultherapy is an in-office, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound energy to tighten the skin. The treatment usually takes less than an hour and is recommended for people who are just beginning to show signs of aging.
Like CoolSculpting, it does take some time for you to see the full results after Ultherapy. Some degree of subtle, yet noticeable, results are usually visible right away. You might not be fully rejuvenated when you head home for the holidays, after a Ultherapy treatment, but you will look refreshed and feel more confident.
