Nonsurgical Cosmetic Treatments to Help You Look Your Best During the Holidays
The holiday season is an exciting time filled with festive parties and plenty of photo opportunities. It is no surprise, then, that we want to look our best during this time. And what better way to look our best than with bright, young-looking skin? New York plastic surgeon Dr. Bruce K. Barach offers several nonsurgical cosmetic treatment options to help your skin shine, without the need for cosmetic surgery. Here, he shares three of his most popular holiday season nonsurgical treatments.
For Wrinkles and Crow’s Feet
Botox continues to be many patients’ “go-to” solution for wrinkles and crow’s feet, and for good reason. The treatment requires no downtime and can be performed during a patient’s lunch break. Botox involves relaxing muscle movement, which in turn smoothens out facial skin in areas such as between the eyebrows, forehead and around the eyes. With Botox, you will notice a smoother appearance almost immediately, typically within 24 to 48 hours of treatment, giving you plenty of time to be ready for your upcoming office or family holiday party.
For Sunken or Hollow Skin Areas
Over time, the skin tends to lose fat and volume, causing the areas underneath the eyes, cheeks, eyebrows or jawline to look hollow. This results in a tired or older looking appearance. If you have sunken or thin-looking facial areas, dermal fillers can help restore youth and beauty to these areas just in time for the holidays. Dr. Barach offers his patients Restylane and Juvederm to restore volume to sunken facial areas. These injectable fillers can also treat wrinkles by filling in the depressions, or they can plump up the lips for a fuller, luscious appearance. Like Botox, dermal filler treatments produce almost immediate results and require no downtime. The longevity of results vary depending on the amount and type of filler used, but generally can last up to a year.
For Sun Damaged Skin
Whether your skin is still recuperating from summer beach time or years of sun damage have begun to appear, laser skin resurfacing can help. Laser skin resurfacing uses pulsating beams of laser light to diminish old, damaged skin cells and make way for new, healthy skin cells. This in turn produces a smoother, refreshed complexion. Dr. Barach offers Fraxel laser treatment, which uses a microscopic laser that offers more precision than other laser treatments. Fraxel Laser treatment requires little downtime and can be used to treat discoloration, age spots, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and other signs of sun damage.
