How to look fabulous for the Holidays without Surgery

Medical Spas are  a huge industry for one reason: People want to look their best without surgery.  Most people do not have the money or the down time to incur a cosmetic surgical procedure.  This is why Botox cosmetic has become the #1 cosmetic procedure in America because it takes 20 minutes, has no down time and makes you look 5-15 years younger in 2 weeks!

The Holidays are only 3 weeks away (Thanksgiving) and Christmas & Chanukah are close behind it.  So what are the best procedures to make you look younger and fabulous in a time crunch?  I’m going to list the top 4 from our Orlando Medical Spa: Winter Park Laser & Anti-Aging Center.

#1: Chemical Peels: This is the oldest and still one of the best cosmetic treatments to date to help your skin look better with in weeks.  There are light and medium chemical peels that require only a few days of flaking with big pay offs.  This involves a chemical solution being applied by a licensed aesthetician.  This chemical will exfoliate and break down the dead skin cell layers that have piled up on your skin over time and reveal new fresh skin-diminishing brown spots, tightening pores, evening out skin tone, diminishing fine lines, wrinkles & giving skin a healthy glow instead of dullness.

#2: Botox Cosmetic: If you haven’t done Botox yet; you might be the only one (haha).  Once you do it once you will be hooked-why? Because it is easy and gives you a huge bang for your buck.  The procedure uses tiny insulin needles so it is virtually painless, only leaves swelling for about 2 hours but does take 2 weeks to take full effect so if you want results by Thanksgiving you need to start soon.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for 3-4 months on average. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.

#3: Dermal Fillers AKA Liquid Facelift: We love Dermal Fillers such as Juvederm XC at our Medical Spa-they can literally make someone look 10 years younger instantly! The dermal filler is used to replace volume in areas such as the cheeks, lips and around the mouth-also lifting the cheeks & therefore tightening some skin. JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler (hyaluronic acid) that our PA-C uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.

#4: IPL Photo-Facial: My personal favorite treatment takes 20 minutes for a full face, has little discomfort and only leaves slight redness for a couple of hours.  Give it 2 weeks for end result and it will at least 30-40% of sun spots and redness or broken capillaries in 1 treatment!Palomar® Intense pulsed light treatments use the MaxG hand-piece to deliver energy to target and destroy vascular and pigmented lesions associated withveins, Rosacea, sun damage, and age spots from face, chest, hands, legs, and arms.  During the procedure, the entire treatment area is scanned with an IPL handpiece and treated with multiple passes and customized settings.
