Now that we’re into November and the holiday season is officially upon us, it’s a popular time for self-improvement treatments for nipping and tucking, softening fine lines and wrinkles, correcting common complexion concerns like age spots, and so much more. If you’re looking to make a few improvements, it’s a perfect time to schedule treatments. Here’s a look at the most popular holiday prepping treatments and the particulars of timing them perfectly so you get the biggest bang for your buck.
Botox and dermal fillers
In general, every injection carries a risk of swelling, pinpoint bleeding, or bruising, so the more time you can allow for these side effects to resolve, the better off you’ll be — because the last thing you need to feel during this hectic season is panic over your injectable treatment!
Here are a few more notes: Botox® takes four days to a week or longer to show optimal wrinkle-smoothing results. This injectable relaxes the muscles that cause your wrinkles to form. Once your muscle is relaxed, the skin over it smooths out, revealing a relaxed, younger-looking you with minimal to no downtime. All this muscle-relaxing action takes time to settle and take full effect. You’ll need to schedule your treatment a good three weeks before any party to ensure you allow enough time for your injectable to settle in. If you must push it, allow two weeks minimum before you need to be seen.
Dermal fillers provide immediate gratification, but they often cause short-term swelling. To be on the safe side, you need to allow two to three weeks for swelling to fully subside, revealing your true, optimal results.
TruSculpt® 3D is an amazing non-invasive body contouring option that can tighten skin and reduce excess fat in your “problem spots.” This means you can wear that party dress with confidence. SculpSure® is another non-invasive fat reduction solution you may love, but the most important tip for these treatments is scheduling them months in advance. Optimal results are typically achieved with a series of treatments which span the course of several months. If you start treatments today, you may see improvement within the month, but your best results are waiting for you in the new year. Think of it this way: Non-invasive fat reduction is a gift to yourself that keeps on giving! As long as you’re not expecting an overnight miracle, you’ll love it!
