Didn’t we just put away holiday decorations? (At least it seems like we just did.) And once Halloween passes, it’s a whirlwind of activity leading up to Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, holiday parties, and family vacations! They’re just around the corner, so now is the perfect time to start getting your skin looking its best!
At Vivid, we offer many skin treatments to help with that perfect holiday glow, but first let’s make sure you’re winterizing your skin.
Keeping Your Skin Healthy for the Holidays
While we don’t have the cold and temperature extremes in Florida that other regions have this time of year, even slight differences can have an effect on your skin. Plus, many of us will be traveling to colder climates for the holidays, so the temperature extremes can cause problems as well. Sun exposure, reduced humidity, and a change in indoor air can all make your skin red, dry, and flaky. Those holiday treats and a tendency to eat on the go during this busy season can wreak havoc as well. Fortunately, a few simple adjustments to your lifestyle can combat these common problems.
As the holiday season approaches, be sure to enough sleep each night, exercise regularly and stay hydrated. This lowers your stress level so you’re not as prone to have an acne breakout, develop red or dry skin or other skin issues. If you normally take warm or hot showers, try to limit your time so the water does not dry out your skin. Using a moisturizer within a few minutes of getting out of the shower helps to keep your skin’s natural moisture from escaping.
Professional Skin Aesthetics for a True Holiday Glow
Whether you have specific problems you want to eliminate or are more interested in a touch-up, your face can shine this holiday season with one of these treatments:
- Laser Facial Treatments: Thanks to advanced laser technology, there are so many issues that can be quickly treated – from erasing facial spider veins to tightening sagging skin, and brightening overall tone and texture. Additionally, Vivid Laser Facial Treatments not only removes sun-damaged pigment, but can also increase the production of new collagen for younger looking skin. If you start right now, you could get a package of three and schedule one for each month, October, November, and December.
- Injectables: Aging literally leaves a mark on your face, such as deep-set frown lines. If you’d like to look more rested and peaceful for the holiday season, an injectable treatment may be right for you. Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin help to eliminate crow’s feet, forehead lines, and other typical signs of aging. Around the holidays, appointments for injectables – especially Botox – fill up quickly because everyone wants their treatment to be fresh for holiday events and photos. So we recommend scheduling your appointment for early December right now.
- Dermal Fillers: The loss of facial volume is a normal part of aging, but you can fight back with Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, or another dermal filler. These treatments add volume to cheeks as well as eliminate laugh lines, deep-set tear troughs, and much more. For optimum holiday glow, you should schedule your dermal filler appointment by early November to allow time for any swelling to go down and the fillers to settle.
Tis the season to look your best and put your best face forward for the New Year. If you’d like to learn more about any of these procedures or schedule a free consultation, just click here.
