Beautiful Holiday SkinDare we say it? The holidays are nearly upon us. While you’re thinking ahead about which of your festive outfits you’ll wear, don’t forget about your skin. Advanced Skin Treatment Center has a variety of treatment options to get you looking your best for the holiday season. Some of the procedures require some advance planning so that you have the time for results to really take effect. October and November are the ideal months to make appointments so that you have plenty of time to put your best face forward all season long.

Think of it as a pre-holiday tune-up to address problematic skin and other issues that are simply keeping you from looking as youthful and lovely as possible.

At Advance Skin Treatment Center, our most popular combination of treatment is a mix of Botox, Juvederm and Restylane, IPL and SilkPeel, combining them with anti-aging skin care and, often, prescription Refissa and Latisse. The combination we use depends on the patient’s specific issues and their desires. We recommend this series of procedures, skin care and prescriptions because they can give immediate results, compared to some other procedures that are either done as a series over several months (Fraxel, Sculptra) or that can take up to 6 months to get the full results (Thermage).

Because time is of the essence, we recommend procedures that people can do within a month or two before a holiday or event:

SilkPeel Dermalinfusion can be done the same day of any event with no downtime. But it’s best done within 2 weeks prior to any event for optimal results. It can also be done in a series that requires more lead time. The procedure combines precision exfoliation with a diamond treatment head that, with controlled intensity application of customized dermaceutical treatment solutions, restores lost radiance, improves acne and abnormal brown pigment. The ongoing benefit is that the procedure allows for better penetration of home cosmeceutical treatments.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) can usually be done 7-10 days before an event. The treatment is used to improve sun damaged skin, age spots, brown discoloration, redness, broken blood vessels, freckles, fine wrinkling and rosacea. It is safe enough to use on the neck, chest, arms and backs of the hands too! 

Botox can be done within 3-4 days, although full results may not be seen for up to 2 weeks. Expect to see good results within a week. BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes facial muscles leaving you looking more rested, less stressed and eliminates that angry look that frowning communicates. It can be used for a Botox brow lift, on crow’s feet, on forehead lines and frown lines.

With Juvederm XC and Restylane L, some patients may bruise a bit—bruising that can last up to 3 weeks. Because of this, just to be safe, Dr. Elaine advises patients to do it at least 3 weeks before a big event. These fillers are injections that restore volume to specific areas, reducing wrinkles, lines, and improving areas that have lost volume such as lips, cheeks and underneath the eyes.  

Just imagine a season of comments like “Wow, you look amazing!” Contact us today at Advanced Skin Treatment Center to create a plan for your particular skin care situation.
