With all the holiday hustle and bustle, you forgot all about your face and the signs of aging. But you don’t want to hit the holiday scene with all those wrinkles. Is it too late to give your face the attention it deserves?
The good news is, BOTOX® and fillers can be your holiday miracle, reducing the appearance of wrinkles just in time for the big holiday party. In addition, you will be able to enjoy the results well into the new year.
The Holidays Are a Busy Time
The holidays are a busy and hectic time of year. Rushing to get the perfect gift, visiting with family and friends and attending holiday parties. While this may keep your schedule full, it is also a very busy time at the medspa near you. Everyone wants to look their best for the holiday festivities, and this is often the busiest time of year for med spas.
As soon as you decide to reduce those wrinkles and improve your appearance with injectables, call your local med spa and make an appointment. While results from dermal fillers and BOTOX happen quickly, you don’t want to leave it to the last minute, or worse yet, not be able to get in before the holidays.
Dermal Fillers Offer Natural-Looking Change
Dermal fillers may be just the gift your face deserves this holiday season. Dermal fillers offer natural-looking and instant results that can target a variety of facial concerns.
They can plump up lifeless lips and add volume to the cheeks. If the holiday hustle has left you with hollowed under-eye areas, dermal fillers can address that as well. In addition, different fillers can also smooth out marionette lines and even lift the face in areas.
In most cases, treatments with dermal fillers take less than an hour. But the results can last up to two years or longer, depending on what filler is used. There are many different fillers available, such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®. Which one your provider chooses depends on their experience and the facial concerns you wish to treat.
Results are typically seen shortly after treatment, allowing you to put your best face forward this holiday season. But the fact that these results last so long is a gift to yourself that keeps on giving.
BOTOX Targets Specific Wrinkles
Like dermal fillers, BOTOX is a simple injection treatment that can provide dramatic results for your face. However, BOTOX works a little differently and targets specific wrinkles.
Like dermal fillers, BOTOX treatments typically take less than an hour and cause minimal discomfort. While dermal fillers often provide instant results, it can take up to a week to see the final results of BOTOX injections.
So, what wrinkles does BOTOX target and how does it work? BOTOX targets the wrinkles in your face that develop due to repeated facial muscle movements. These include forehead creases, crow’s feet and frown lines.
BOTOX works by relaxing these facial muscles, allowing the surface skin to become smoother, giving you a younger appearance. Because of this, results are not seen immediately. Muscles should relax and you should begin to see initial results in a couple of days, with optimal results appearing around one to two weeks after treatment.
Unlike dermal fillers that can last up to a couple of years, BOTOX results are temporary and only last for three to six months. Many people set up regular maintenance appoints to maintain your results.
Consider Both and Take Years Off Your Appearance
If you are really looking to wow your family and friends this holiday season, consider combining both dermal fillers and BOTOX treatments. Because they treat different wrinkles and facial concerns, combined treatments can address all of your concerns and help to remove wrinkles from your face quickly, giving you the holiday look you desire.
Some Things to Consider When Scheduling an Appointment for Dermal Fillers or BOTOX
In order to make sure you receive the results you are hoping for this holiday season, consider these tips:
- Despite the hustle and bustle of the holidays, don’t leave booking your appointment to the last minute. This is a busy time of year and appointments will fill up fast.
- Schedule dermal fillers at least a week before an event and BOTOX at least two weeks before an event. This will help ensure you have plenty of time to see the full results of your treatment.
The holidays are a time for giving to others, but you deserve a little pampering too. A trip to a medspa near you will give you a gift you can enjoy well into the new year.
