Can we talk about the holidays??
They’re the most wonderful time of the year, but also the most photographed. Oh yeah, and did we mention that this season is stressful? With all the events, travel, shopping, and busyness of the season, who has time to maintain their beauty routine, you might ask. What you need is a strategy to look your best with the least amount of time and effort. Here are the beauty treatments we recommend to keep you looking good even when your Google calendar is stacked and you're a regular at the SkyMiles lounge.
Treatment 1: Botox
This multi-tasking medspa mainstay is an absolute must. Whether you're looking to treat the fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead, stop yourself from complusively frowning while you're at your computer, or slim down your jawline, Botox can help. One of our fave benefits of Botox is that it keeps your expression serene and calm even if you might feel stressed on the inside. We tend to clench our muscles when we are stressed without even realizing, and this time of year can be so busy! Botox helps you to relax your face and release tension.
Treament 2: Dermal Filler
There are a couple different reasons why filler is such a useful treatment during the winter holidays. The biggest reason? It’s the time of year when you’re most likely to be photographed constantly, with all the parties and events going on. Filler is great at balancing out your features, making you look more symmetrical and photogenic. The placement and type of filler depends on your unique face. You might benefit from filler under your eyes, or in your chin or cheeks. Check out our complete guide to facial balancing to learn more.
The other reason why fillers are a godsend in the winter? Our lips get dried out super easy because of how thin the skin is. Lip fillers like Restylane Kysse or Juvederm Volbella don’t just add volume and shape. They also restore moisture to the lips, because the hyaluronic acid they’re made from helps your body hold onto moisture more effectively. If you’re tired of applying lip balm every ten minutes, even a small amount of filler (about half a syringe) can help your lips feel more moisturized and comfortable. Plus, your festive red lipstick will look even better on a fuller, softer pout.
Treatment 3: Hydrafacial
If your skin is looking dull or tired, join the club! Between central heating and cold temps outside, skin easily gets dried out this time of year. The Hydrafacial solves this problem, combining painless extraction technology with next-level hydration. The result of this 60 or 90 minute treatment is skin that’s super clean, smooth, and well-moisturized. For best results, get a Hydrafacial every four weeks, and keep up a good skincare routine. Your skin will look radiant and glowy all season long.
Treatment 4: CryoSlim or Evolve
It’s no secret that the holiday season is a time when many of us put on a little extra weight. Whether from the rich food and drink, the weather’s impact on your exercise routine, or stress, holiday weight gain is frustrating. One way to get ahead of this problem is to incorporate a body sculpting treatment into your routine. While these treatments won’t help you lose weight overall, they do help to reduce unwanted fat in specific areas of the body. So if you know that those slices of apple pie go straight to your inner thighs, a treatment like Cryo Slim or Evolve is just what you need. Cryo Slim targets just the fat cells themselves, while Evolve can also tighten and firm skin, or build up muscle mass.
