For Christmas 2014 Beauty, Timing Is Everything

By Daniel Baker

 

Don’t wait until the night before Christmas to book your cosmetic enhancement appointment. Different treatments and procedures have different healing times. Ideally, you should schedule your procedure with enough lead-time that any residual signs of injectables, surgery, or other rejuvenating procedures have faded away.

Dermal Fillers for Christmas 2014

Dermal fillers are an excellent choice for re-sculpting the cheek and re-building lost volume. Some of the more popular cosmetic enhancement uses for dermal fillers include

  • Minimising smile lines
  • Plumping cheeks or lips
  • Filling in under-eye hollows

The gel is injected into the dermal layer of the skin with a small needle. The injecting process itself takes about 15 minutes and the results can be seen immediately. There is no real downtime with fillers, so you can schedule your treatment close to the holidays if you wish.

Yourimproved appearance will last, on average, from six months to a year.That means you can schedule your appointment now, and show off the new you at Christmas, New Year’s, and well into 2015.

Scheduling Anti-Wrinkle Injections for Christmas

Anti-wrinkle injections help smooth the complexion without the need for surgery to give you a brand new youthful look just in time for the festive season. Anti-wrinkle injections give you a fresh, young-looking complexion along with confidence to enjoy all your holiday gatherings.

The injections are administered using a very fine needle and they are painless. Treatment time is very short, about ten minutes per session, and you don’t need to worry about taking time off to recover or dealing with swelling or bruising. Most people experience a visible reduction in their lines within 3 to 5 days, with final results sometimes taking up to 2 weeks to emerge.

Noticeable results have lasted as long as 4 months, but results can vary.Scheduling your appointment now will improve your appearance for the festive season without having an impact on your holiday schedule.

Cosmetic Surgery for Christmas 2014

If you’re planning surgery like blepharoplsty, a browlift or a facelift, you will need to factor in a significant amount of recovery time. Giving yourself as much time as possible between the holiday and your chosen procedure will help ensure that bruising/swelling has gone down, redness has disappeared, and any surgical scars are well on their way to being healed (or are healed enough that they can be covered with cosmetics).

The recommended recovery time for the top cosmetic surgery procedures include:

  • Brow Lift- 1-2 weeks
  • Facelift- 2 weeks
  • Eyelid Surgery- 2 weeks
  • Breast Augmentation – 1 week
  • Breast Lift – 1 week
  • Liposuction – 1 week
  • Tummy Tuck – 3-4 weeks

Happy holidays!
