04 Nov 2 Treatments with Fast Results for Holiday Parties
Many treatments require patience—CoolSculpting, Ultherapy, laser skin rejuvenation, and others take time for results to shine. However, at RefinedMD we are also committed to giving you instant gratification. If holiday parties are sneaking up on you fast, you can still count on Botox and fillers for fast and even immediate results. Combined, these two injectables are the gold standard in turning back the clock and customizing your look with no downtime.
Botox is the go-to neuromodulator, but it can do a lot more than stop wrinkles in their tracks. If you do use Botox to prevent or stop wrinkles, results show up in just a few days. As long as you have about three days before your holiday gathering, Botox can help you look your best and feel confident. You can also use Botox for a “lip flip,” which can give you a more subtle fuller pout.
Lip flips require precise application, so you only want to work with trusted professionals for this quickie procedure. Tiny amounts of Botox are injected along the upper lip line, “flipping” it outward for the appearance of a fuller lip. It’s an excellent option for clients with gummy smiles, but keep in mind that results last just three months. Since this area is very mobile, Botox wears off faster here than in other parts of the face. It’s a subtle but effective difference—however, if you want a more dramatic change, fillers provide insta-results.
Fillers for Every Festivity
Most dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a compound that is already synthesized naturally in the body. Fillers can immediately plump just about any part of the face and hands. For years, lip fillers have been very popular and they’re still a great option if you’ve lost volume in this area or always wanted it. However, today the technique for dermal fillers is a most holistic approach.
In fact, you can achieve a non-surgical outcome just with fillers. For example, dermal fillers can be injected in the temples, along the jawline, the chin, the cheeks, and the undereye area to seriously turn back the clock. We all lose good fat in our face as we get older, and these are often signs of aging that we overlook. It’s not just about lines and wrinkles, though of course volume loss contributes to that. Instead, aging is a more comprehensive process that often begins with volume loss at the same time or even before wrinkles.
Minimally Invasive Results
You can even inject dermal fillers in the tops of the hands so they don’t give away your age. Working with a skin care expert to create a one-of-a-kind regimen just for you is the key to results that you’ll love. By using Botox and dermal fillers together, and in a manner that’s designed just for you, nobody will be able to tell you’ve had anything “done”—they’ll just know that you look fabulous.
Although there is rarely any significant downtime when it comes to Botox and fillers, you don’t want to schedule your appointment on the same day as a big event. Botox can cause tiny bumps at the injections site that can take a day to subside. Swelling is common with dermal fillers, so you want to give them time to relax and settle. At least one week before an event is recommended for injectables so you can make the most of your upgraded look.
Scheduling Your Appointment
We have kept some slots open so that you can look and feel your best during this festive time of the year. You can also pair Botox and fillers with other surgical and non-surgical treatments if you’re taking advantage of this time of year to refresh and revitalize. For example, marrying fillers and Botox with gentler laser skin rejuvenation options like Clear + Brilliant or an in-office facial can yield gorgeous results—but you can also pair dermal fillers with more aggressive treatments like surgery to take your outcome to the next level.
