The holiday season is now upon us, and that means Instagram pics, selfies, and lots of photos. You’ll want to look your best as you mix and mingle with family, co-workers, and friends you haven’t seen in a while. Now is the perfect time to upgrade your appearance or get a few minor things fixed before the festivities begin.
Non-invasive surgical procedures can help give you the look that you desire with a relatively quick office visit. You’ll be able to go back to your daily routine without any downtime. They can help your appearance and allow you to look your best when celebrating the holidays.
Here are six non-surgical procedures that you can have done to help you look your best this holiday season.
Look younger than you did last year with Botox. If crow’s feet, smile lines, and frown lines are starting to appear on your face (and in your social media pics), a round of Botox injections can help soften the wrinkles and restore your youthful looks.
The best part about Botox is that there is little to no evidence that you’ve had work done to your face. People you haven’t seen in a while will remark how young and radiant you look. The results can last anywhere from three to six months, so now is the perfect time to get it done!
Facial fillers are often used in conjunction with Botox to achieve the perfect look. They contain Hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance that helps the skin retain moisture, and thereby looking younger and healthier. Fillers can accomplish many aesthetic goals, such as:
- Smoothing wrinkles and lines
- Enhancing facial symmetry
- Restoring lost volume to the hands and facial areas
- Plumping lips
There’s a wide variety of facial filler brands that you can get, and each one has its own unique set of benefits. Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Volbella® are just a few of the many fillers that can help you look younger and more radiant.
Slim down for the holidays—and fit into your favorite outfit—with Coolsculpting. This non-surgical treatment uses a wand that’s moved over areas of fat on your body. It delivers a precise amount of cooling to freeze and kill fat cells. Once the fat cells die, your body will absorb and eliminate them naturally.
The best part about Coolsculpting is that it doesn’t require you to go under the knife or have anesthesia. Patients are wide awake during the treatment session, and there’s absolutely no downtime. It’s a great procedure to get done on your lunch break or in between your holiday shopping trips.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective alternative to other hair removal procedures. Unlike waxing, shaving, and plucking, laser hair removal permanently removes hair without the side effects of skin irritation and ingrown hairs.
It can help get rid of hair growth in areas such as the bikini line, underarms, upper lip, and arms/legs. Laser hair removal is also relatively painless when compared to waxing and other techniques. There’s no downtime, and patients can return to their regular daily routine immediately after the procedure.
Our skin tends to sag and loosen as we age and grow older. Non-surgical skin tightening can help stimulate elastin and collagen production, which will help tighten skin and provide a more youthful look and appearance.
There are several different kinds of non-surgical skin tightening procedures, each with their own benefits:
ThermiVa – Both aging and childbirth can take away the tightness of the vagina. The ThermiVa procedure uses radiofrequency energy as it stimulates and heats the surrounding tissue, which in turn stimulates the production of naturally occurring collagen.
ThermiSmooth – If you have saggy skin, cellulite, or wrinkles, ThermiSmooth can help reduce their appearance. It uses radiofrequency energy to heat the skin areas, which causes it to tighten and smooth. There is no recovery or downtime, and it’s performed in an outpatient setting.
Thermi-Tight – This procedure can help spot-treat the skin on any part of the body. It uses radiofrequency energy that’s delivered to the skin via a tiny probe. It’s most often used for tummies, necks, breasts, and the thigh areas.
