5 Procedures to Get Your Skin Holiday-Ready

Xmas Girl Small

The holiday season ushers in the usual whirlwind schedule of office parties, family gatherings and festive events. Are you ready? The question of what to wear may prompt you to shop for a smashing new outfit and the perfect pair of shoes. But the bigger question is – how does your skin look? Get your holiday glow on with one of the following procedures and really shine this season.

A Chemical Peel
Uneven skin tone, fine lines, age spots, acne scars – wouldn’t it be nice to wave a magic wand and make these all disappear? A chemical peel wields some of that power and it’s one of the least invasive ways to improve your skin’s appearance. There are different strengths of chemical peels with the mildest being the salicylic acid peel. It gently exfoliates, removes the outer layer of skin and results in a healthy glow.

Botox
Hopefully you plan to do lots of smiling this holiday season. Botox is most effective at treating “movement” wrinkles – the crinkles and crow’s feet that appear at the corner of your eyes when you smile, the crease between them when you frown or the lines on your forehead when you raise your brows. This popular injectable could make a world of difference in the image you project from this year’s family photo card.

Dermal Fillers

Movement wrinkles are one thing but what about more static wrinkles like smile lines around the nose and mouth? These deeper wrinkles or so-called “wrinkles at rest” can benefit from the application of volume fillers like Juvederm and Restylane. Another excellent rejuvenation measure is to restore volume mid-face with the help of an injectable like Juvederm Voluma.

IPL Therapy

How about diminishing sun damage, rosacea, blotchiness and discoloration in time for that glittery holiday event? IPL therapy is a skin rejuvenation process that uses intense pulses of light to penetrate deep into the skin. The light prompts a response from the blood vessels and collagen in order to make skin look younger, smoother and more supple. It even addresses large pores and fine lines.

Laser Skin Resurfacing
Turn back the clock a few years with this procedure that improves the quality and texture of your skin. Here at SBC we use Mixto CO2 technology to peel off top layers of skin and uncover new unblemished skin below. This laser is used to improve lines and wrinkles, brown spots, scars and acne scars, aged and sun damaged skin. It also boosts collagen production. Typically, only one session is require to obtain desired results.

In the midst of holiday preparations, don’t forget your skin so it will sparkle as much as the season!
