Party Prep for Your Skin
New Year’s Eve is upon us, which means your schedule is likely to be filling up with parties, events and family get-togethers. This also means you’ll want to put your best face forward, and there are many ways to help – both in the office and at home.
In the office, a series of BBL photofacial treatments improves fine lines, wrinkles, redness, discoloration, enlarged pores, firmness, radiance and more. Ideal for the face, neck, chest and beyond, this non-invasive light-based treatment takes less than 30 minutes, during which patients report feeling the heat and a sensation similar to a rubber band snap. You can apply a numbing cream is applied before the treatment to maximize comfort. The skin will be red for the first few hours after BBL treatment and areas with pigment will begin to darken. The treated skin begins to flake off within the first week, revealing fresher, healthier skin after just one treatment, although multiple treatments may be recommended for optimal results.
A series of chemical peels can also help get skin in tip-top shape in time for the new year. Ideal for improving fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, acne and rough skin texture, peels can be customized to meet a patient’s concerns, desired outcomes and willingness for downtime. Peel options include:
Light peels: The treatments gently exfoliate the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and also help clear the pores, promote cell regeneration and improve the appearance of aging or damaged skin.
Medium peels: The most commonly performed peels, medium-strength treatments penetrate deeper into the skin for more advanced exfoliation and skin correction without extensive healing time.
Deep peels: These penetrate reach the lower dermal layer of your skin and target more severe signs of aging and skin damage. This type of peel is the most intense and requires the most healing time.
These are just a few ways to get your skin ready to look and feel more beautiful. A comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation always starts with a good home care regimen and continues with in-office procedures such as Botox, fillers including Restylane and Juvederm, and other energy-based treatments that target skin laxity, pigmentation or stubborn fat deposits.
