As the holidays approach and party plans start to take shape, both men and women are scheduling cosmetic procedures to ensure everyone looks their holiday best. Gift certificates are also proving popular stocking stuffers.
Among the top five pre-holiday procedures individuals seek include:
- Injectables (Botox), and Fillers (Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane, Sculptra)
- Skin rejuvenation
- Laser hair removal
- Skin tightening
- Laser vein removal
Injectables and Fillers
While among the most popular cosmetic procedures year-round, injectables such as Botox and DySport and fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma, Sculptra and the latest in injectable treatments, Kybella, top the list in requested cosmetic procedures in preparation for the holidays. These simple procedures take little time to perform in the office and produce immediate results – eliminating furroughed brow and forehead lines, reducing the appearance of crows feet, smile and lip lines, as well as lifting brows and subtly plumping lips.
Enhanced skin rejuvenation laser therapy helps shed the visible wear of the past year, reinvigorating sun-damaged skin and reducing visibility of age spots, lentigines and facial telangiectasia. Patients with photo-damage and photo-aging often benefit from this type of procedure.
Skin Rejuvenation Laser Therapy Specifically Addresses:
- Sun damage
- Lentigines and facial telangiectasia
- Vascular and pigment irregularities
“Painting” the entire face with the laser, patients typically see clearing of sun damage, wrinkle improvement as collagen forms and overall younger looking skin. Optimal benefit may require three to eight treatments.
Laser Hair Removal
Hair removal procedures are very popular in preparation for skin baring holiday styles. Utilizing the latest in laser hair removal technology, registered nurses safely remove hair by heating the area at the base of the hair shaft, permanently preventing hair regrowth.
The laser procedure targets the pigment in the hair follicle, which works on either black or brown hair, and must be performed during a specific phase in the hair’s growth cycle (active or anagen phase). Multiple treatments are required and vary with each individual and by body site.
Skin Tightening with SkinTyte
Skin tightening treatments are among the fastest growing laser procedures in the aesthetic industry. Using infrared energy, SkinTyte is safe for all skin types and can treat any area of the body (face, neck, arms, abdomen, knees), giving skin a firmer and more youthful appearance. There is no need for topical anesthetic, no down time, and no excessive redness. This is truly a lunchtime procedure!
Laser Vein Therapy
A beautiful pair of legs can greatly enhance a holiday dress. With a revolutionary new laser vein therapy treatment, spider veins and other distracting veins are quickly and safely eliminated. Vein removal treatment, including Sclerotherapy and Alscera, effectively eliminates broken capillaries up to 4 mm in diameter on the face and legs as well. Utilizing advanced technology redness and bruising associated with traditional treatments are minimized. This laser vein therapy technology also allows treatment for people of any ethnic origin and skin type, including tanned skin.
