Holiday Ready Injections: Look Your Best in Time for the Holidays
Now that the fall is upon us, it’s time to prepare for the upcoming holidays. During this busy time of year, whether you’ll be traveling on an exotic vacation or just spending the holidays with your loved ones, you’ll want to feel radiant as you celebrate, and of course, you’ll want to look fabulous in all those holiday photos!
At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, you can prepare ahead during this busy season by getting a non-surgical facial makeover on your lunch break! And there’s no post-treatment downtime to worry about, so you can save your vacation days and spend them vacationing. Smoothing away those bothersome lines and wrinkles that detract from your youthful appearance is as easy as scheduling an appointment for dermal injections a few weeks before you want to look your best.
If you’re wondering when you should begin to schedule your Botox and dermal filler appointments so that you can show off the results at holiday parties, the simple answer is: Right away!
Botox: Time-tested, Affordable, and Effective
For decades, men and women have been using Botox to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in troublesome areas of the face to achieve smoother, firmer, more radiant skin. Botox treats dynamic wrinkles caused by the natural aging process and those caused by repeating creases that your facial muscles create when you make certain facial expressions. Botox temporarily relaxes those facial muscles, softening the wrinkles that they cause. And the best part is that with repeated use over time, Botox will gradually eradicate those wrinkles.
The most common Botox treatment areas include frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. The results are dramatic but subtle enough that only you will know you’ve had injections, and improvements increase gradually, so you’ll see the full results about 7 to 14 days after your initial treatment. After that, results typically last around 4 to 6 months before you’ll need another round of injections.
RHA Fillers: Smile and Say Cheese with No Worries
To keep you looking your radiant best, Glamour is proud to provide Revance RHA® dermal fillers, the first and only FDA-approved collection of dermal fillers that treat dynamic folds and wrinkles in the face. Dynamic wrinkles are folds that move with your face due to your everyday facial expressions, such as worry lines in the forehead, crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes, or radial cheek lines that only appear when you smile. RHA fillers are effective against even the most stubborn lines, folds, and wrinkles in the most wrinkle-prone facial areas.
RHA fillers are also less processed than traditional dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane. While all of these formulas contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA), the HA in RHA fillers is more similar in composition to the HA produced by our bodies, which greatly reduces the risk of any adverse reaction to the injections. As a result, RHA fillers are currently considered the “purest” and “cleanest” fillers on the market, and Dr. Bachilo is thrilled to offer them to her patients.
RHA fillers are especially effective at treating lax, “crepey” skin that often develops with age or due to photodamage, hormonal fluctuations, and/or pollutants in the environment. RHA fillers come in various formulas, each designed to treat different areas of the face while also hydrating and firming the skin in the delicate throat and décolleté region and the delicate skin on the back of the hands.
Traditional Dermal Fillers
For those who’ve had great luck with traditional fillers, you can also continue to use formulas such as Restylane, Juvederm, and others to increase facial volume in different areas such as the cheeks, lips, and lower face. These can help to smooth wrinkles, creases, and fine lines in other areas of the face. You can even get dermal injections to banish your double chin!
Bear in mind that when using HA-based formulations, such as Juvederm and Restylane, full results develop gradually over time thanks to the triggering of collagen production in the skin and the effects of the HA, which increases hydration and volume, sometimes taking as long as 2-3 months to reveal themselves fully. The beauty of this is that the changes occur subtly and gradually, so nobody can figure out your little secret.
Dermal fillers produce longer-lasting results than Botox injections, with some formulas lasting as long as one to two years.
