5 Cosmetic Treatments to Get Your Holiday Glow-Up

The arrival of Fall gives you several weeks to get ready for the holiday season, which is a great time to book some aesthetic appointments to enhance your looks for a confidence boost. Discreet touch-ups to improve your skin’s health and create natural-looking results are easy to achieve with board-certified dermatologists like our team at Advanced Dermatology Center.

We invite you to schedule a consultation to start planning your holiday glow-up. Our staff members can discuss what your goals are and tailor an aesthetic plan to them so you can feel confident about your look for the holiday season. We offer a wide range of safe and convenient cosmetic options that you can easily fit into a busy schedule.

#1 Facials

Whether you enjoy cosmetic treatments on a regular basis, or it is your first time incorporating those in your skin care regimen, facials offer many benefits for both your skin and your general well-being. As a relaxing experience, they offer you a chance to relax and take a break from your everyday tasks or even festivity preparations.

Our facial offerings at Advanced Dermatology Center include:

  • Detoxifying acne facial that exfoliates, cleanses, and soothes blemished skin
  • Hydrafacial for instantly visible results after in-depth exfoliation and rich hydration without irritation
  • Microdermabrasion for gentle exfoliation and visible reduction of the appearance of scars, large pores, and/or fine lines
  • Mother-to-be-facial to increase blood flow and skin smoothness
  • Oxygen facial, a 5-step process that offers an instant glow and a soothing pampering experience
  • Ultimate custom facial that combines intensive resurfacing and rejuvenation to nourish your skin

Facials are not just for women, and we offer a men’s spa facial that specifically addresses men’s dermatological needs and includes a relaxing face and neck massage.

One of the main benefits of facials is their versatility. You can expect a physical examination of your skin and a discussion of your goals before we recommend a specific type of facial to achieve your desired results.

Facials can typically support your skin’s health and reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, acne, or redness. It can treat inflammation and imperfections. You can usually enjoy the results of your facials for about a week. For your convenience, you may combine a facial with other aesthetic treatments. Facials require no downtime and let you go back to your normal activities right after leaving our office.

#2 Neuromodulators and Dermal Fillers

FDA-approved injectables are a discreet and easy introduction to aesthetic treatments, and you can continue to enjoy them for years to come. You can opt for neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport, dermal fillers like Juvéderm, Restylane, and Radiesse, or a combination of both. Most injectables only take about 15 minutes and require no downtime. You can even get them during your lunch break.

Neuromodulators acts as muscle relaxants and smooth wrinkles, folds, and fine lines. They only work on dynamic wrinkles that happen due to facial expressions like crow’s feet or smile lines. Dermal fillers can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases. Fillers can restore volume in hollowed areas or plump thin lips. If you are frustrated with a double chin, Kybella injections specifically target this area to get rid of submental fat.

Injectables create natural-looking results and we can combine them with other aesthetic treatments to maximize your visit. You can expect the results of your neuromodulator injections to last about four months while dermal fillers can maintain their results for up to a year depending on which type you receive. Our team can answer any questions you have and determine an appropriate maintenance schedule to keep your looks fresh.

#3 Chemical Peels

A chemical peel involves the application of a chemical solution to your skin to safely remove its outermost layer. It reveals younger and healthier skin cells and creates a smoother and more even tone and texture. Chemical peels can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, blotchiness, discoloration, and scars.

Advanced Dermatology Center offers chemical and herbal peels like:

  • Antioxidant fruit acid peel
  • Clarifying acne treatment
  • Intensive anti-aging peels
  • Lightening lift
  • Mini green peel
  • Organic passion peel
  • Red carpet treatment
  • Soothing redness treatment

A chemical peel typically takes up to one hour depending on the area you want to be treated. You can enjoy immediate results. If you experience mild pinkness or irritation, it usually fades away within a few hours. To maintain your results, you can get a chemical peel monthly. You can also combine a chemical peel with other aesthetic treatments.

#4 Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections use your own plasma to rejuvenate your skin or stimulate hair growth. Plasma is the part of your blood that consists of water and protein and plays a vital role in your body’s healing and cell regeneration processes.

PRP injections stimulate your natural production of collagen and elastin for firmer and smoother skin. In addition to their powerful anti-aging results, this type of injection can also increase your moisture retention. If you want to enhance delicate areas like under your eye, PRP injections are more gentle than other treatments like laser resurfacing.

A PRP appointment generally takes about 30 minutes but may last longer if you are receiving treatment in a large area or several ones. Platelet-rich plasma injections involve no recovery time. You may experience minor side effects for a few days like redness, itching, or swelling.

Our team may recommend two to five treatments to achieve your desired results, usually once a month. Once you have completed the initial cycle, your results can last up to a year with appropriate skin care and a healthy lifestyle.

#5 PDO Thread Lift

Are you considering a face lift but are not willing to go for surgery? A PDO thread lift may be exactly what you need. This non-surgical treatment uses FDA-approved resorbable sutures to treat the face and neck for lasting rejuvenation.

A PDO thread helps tighten your skin and minimize sagging. We can use this method to treat most parts of your facial features, including crow’s feet, marionette lines, and the nasolabial folds. We can also combine a PDO thread lift with other treatments to add definition to your face.

This treatment often takes 15 to 30 minutes and requires no recovery time, a substantial contrast with a traditional face lift that involves preoperative testing, a procedure that lasts over an hour, and weeks of healing.

A PDO thread lift creates natural-looking results over the course of several weeks as it boosts your body’s production of collagen. Your results can last a year.
