Want to look your very best this holiday season? If so, these three beautifying procedures are a must.
Blepharoplasty – schedule 1 month before the holidays
We all want to look bright-eyed and cheerful for the holidays, but if you experience laxity of the upper eyelid you may find yourself looking tired, run down, and certainly not in the holiday spirit. It’s normal for this laxity to occur with age as the delicate skin on the eyelid loses volume, but it can be rectified with blepharoplasty.
Also known as an eyelid lift, blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure which lifts lax tissue on the eyelid to make the eyes look brighter and more alert. It’s also possible to deal with “eye bags” underneath the eyes which are caused by loose fat pads which pull the eye downwards and create dark circles.
Results of blepharoplasty are almost immediate, but you will see some mild bruising and swelling in the area for a 1-2 weeks. If you schedule the procedure around a month before the holidays, you’ll be all healed up, with bright, beautiful eyes, just in time for the celebrations.
Botox – schedule around 2 weeks before the holidays
We’d all love to say goodbye to pesky lines and wrinkles before the holidays, and with Botox you can. Wrinkles occur as a result of repetitive movements of the facial muscles which cause skin to fold, often on the forehead and brow (causing “frown lines”) and around the eyes (“crows’ feet”). Botox temporarily weakens the muscles in order to prevent them from creating these lines and wrinkles, allowing you to enjoy a smoother complexion and a younger, more refreshed appearance.
Botox only takes a few minutes for Dr. Wise to inject and there is no recovery time, making it the perfect treatment to schedule in during the busy weeks leading up to the holidays. Results aren’t immediate and show themselves anywhere from 3 – 10 days after the procedure, so be sure to make an appointment 2 weeks before the holiday season. You’ll be able to enjoy the effects for up to three months, which is plenty of time to show off your youthful new looks over the seasonal celebrations.
Dermal fillers – schedule a few days before the holidays
It’s amazing what dermal fillers can do; from restoring facial volume in the cheeks, smoothing out acne scars, restoring volume to the eyes and lifting sagging skin to plumping the pout and eliminating deep wrinkles, the likes of Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma and Radiesse have some truly wonderful applications. With immediate results which last between six months to 2 years , there’s no wonder injectable fillers are on your to-do list before the holiday season.
There’s no downtime involved when having dermal fillers, but you should still give yourself a few days between the treatment and the holidays to completely heal. It’s not unusual to experience a little mild swelling and bruising, so by scheduling a two or three days in advance of the celebrations you can make sure you’re looking your absolute best.
