Are You Ready for a Glowing Holiday Season?

Featured Image

‘Tis the season’ for shopping, decorating, cooking, and giving so carving out a little ‘me time’ can be challenging. But no worries! We’re here to help you navigate this Holiday Season with some fabulous ideas, from treating yourself to Botox and fillers to skincare, laser and beyond. (Hint: Your friends and family will love this too). But there’s no better time to treat yourself than during the season of giving, right?!
You can brighten your spirits (and your skin), by indulging in a peel or a HydraFacial. If you’re looking for a more youthful ‘lift’, begin a series of microneedling treatments and start the New Year right by rolling back time! Don’t forget the daily skincare though!
We offer several procedures along with medical grade products to keep you feeling your best all winter long. It’s time to get the skin you’ve always dreamed of. Pamper yourself a little this Holiday Season!
And…..don’t forget the Gift Certificates for those hard to buy for (they are a definite home run with everyone) or gift yourself and bank for later.
Here’s just a few of our fav’s!

A Perfect Duo
If you are looking to enhance your facial profile or jawline but are apprehensive about going under the knife just yet, dermal fillers such as Juvéderm Voluma and Juvéderm Volux are a great alternative.
Juvéderm Volux is the newest cosmetic injectable in the Juvéderm product lineup, and the first injectable formulated to specifically improve the appearance of moderate to severe loss of jawline definition. Volux is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler that reduces jowls and creates a chiseled, yet natural-looking jawline. For patients with a recessed chin or facial profile, Volux is the best filler for sculpting a more defined jawline.
Then there’s Juvéderm Voluma, an injectable specifically designed for restoring volume in the midface that is often lost due to aging. This dermal filler can be used to add volume and structure to cheeks that have flattened with age or developed a sunken-in appearance. When used in tandem, Volux and Voluma are a highly effective way to instantly create a chiseled jawline, improve recessed chins, and correct volume loss.
How About Those Lashes
Faux eyelashes and eyelash extensions have become a popular beauty trend in recent years. However, false lashes often require regular maintenance, and in some cases, can be irritating to the eyes. Whether you’re looking for a low maintenance way to add volume to thinning lashes, or you’d like to amplify your existing lashes, Obaji Nucil is the perfect remedy.
Nu-Cil is a unique blend of 4 key ingredients that nourishes lashes for a more luscious and thicker appearance with results that continuously build day after day. Ready to love natural voluminous-looking lashes? With Nu-Cil, seeing is believing. You will absolutely love the results.

Chemical Peels
Who doesn’t love a good chemical peel??? They remove the top layer of your skin which can help minimize wrinkles, dullness, hyperpigmentation, and scarring. It may also help skin disorders like acne and rosacea. Remember you need a few days of healing time depending on the level of peel. Hint: Add a Dermaplane to truly get a lasting glow!
The holidays are typically a time of the year that fills our social calendar with work parties and school programs and festivities with our families. We interact socially with more people during the holidays than any other time of the year. It can be exhausting and downright stressful. But we still want to look our best while doing it all!
Botox is a safe, effective, and relatively painless way to improve your mood, self-esteem and make your holidays a little brighter (and your wrinkles less noticeable). By feeling better about yourself, social interactions are easier and more rewarding. With the holidays being the most social time of the year, whether we like it or not, Holiday BOTOX is absolutely a must! It’s quick and relatively painless so why not schedule now to get rid of those pesky wrinkles??

Of course, we can’t forget the HydraFacial! If you’ve ever wanted to feel like your skin has gone through a dishwasher cycle–that deep clean, steamy goodness–it might be time to consider HydraFacial. This magical 45-60-minute treatment tackles everything from dehydration to discoloration, aging to acne, and uneven skin texture.
Ready to book? Honestly, same. Many patients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. 60 minutes later you can emerge with a glow-ier, dewier version of yourself that lasts for up to a week. Best part? Since HydraFacial’s help to brighten the skin by exfoliating the top layer, skincare will penetrate better, and makeup will be applied easier.
