Holiday Glow-Up Guide

This year is flying by, and the time has come for holiday parties. Whether you’re celebrating with coworkers, friends, or family, the holidays are the time to feel a little fancier than usual. There’s nothing better than walking into a party feeling and looking your best. Everyone notices it, and confidence simply adds cheer to your holiday spirit. So what steps can you take this season to get ready to *wow* the crowd? We’ve got the best list of quick and easy treatments for the perfect holiday glow.

About two weeks before your party…

We recommend Botox (or our new toxin, Juveau) two weeks before any holiday party. This will smooth out wrinkles and get you a buttery, smooth forehead just in time for the buttered rolls. In addition to Botox, we recommend getting filler two weeks before your party. This will have you lifted and looking fresh & young- and these injectable appointments take no longer than 30 minutes. We suggest injectables 2 weeks before so that there’s no chance of any bruising or swelling and your full results will be set in by the day of your soiree.

About three days before an event…

Luckily, most of our treatments have little to no downtime. A HydraFacial is the perfect treatment to get about three days before an event. This will deep cleanse, remove all dead skin cells, break up any dirt or oil clogging up pores and vaccuum out all blackheads, dirt and oil from your face- leaving your skin glowing and feeling cleaner than ever.

The day of your event…

If you’re down to the wire, and didn’t have time for a HydraFacial a few days ago, the best day-of treatment is a micropeel. This is a superficial chemical peel which can smooth and soften your skin, brighten your complexion, minimize pore size, and reduce discoloration, all with no social down time. Similar to HydraFacial, we begin micropeels by dermaplaning the dead skin layer and peach fuzz, then follow it up with a light chemical peel. Micropeels speed up and complement your daily skincare routine and leave you with improved skin texture, coloration and overall appearance. Also, we should mention, your skin doesn’t actually peel- it’s just left looking brighter and glowy. Perfect for your holiday party!

So to recap, a few injections early this month followed by a facial (either the HydraFacial or the Micropeel) closer to your party is our suggestion for the perfect holiday glow.
