How to Look Great in Holiday Photos

It’s that time of year again, but you don’t have to dread holiday photos! In fact, this is the best time of year to show off a fresh, new look. With the right cosmetic procedures, you can turn back the hands of time, enhance your favorite features, and feel confident.

Whether you want fewer fine lines and wrinkles, fuller lips, a higher brow, or the opportunity to minimize your dark spots, there are currently a number of non-invasive procedures that can produce dramatic improvements in your appearance. With no downtime or surgery, many of these treatments are simple enough to have completed on your lunch break.

Create a Fresh, Youthful Visage with Botox

It isn’t surprising that Botox is one of the most popular, non-invasive procedures in the nation. This purified toxin can be strategically injected in areas that have developed laugh lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and other creases. It is designed to temporarily immobilize the muscles that are responsible for the development of wrinkles.

With Botox, you can get fast, lasting results. Once the targeted muscles have achieved a fully relaxed position, your face will be smooth and line-free. The results of these treatments can last between three and six months and, apart from minor redness that will quickly abate on its own, you’ll be ready to return to your normal activities as soon as your procedure is completed. In addition to eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, Botox is also great for getting a quick, non-surgical brow lift in mere minutes.

Regain Facial Fullness with Injectable Fillers

There are a number of safe, FDA-approved dermal fillers that can be used to restore fullness to the face after skin elasticity is lost. If you hate taking holiday photos because these images have been annually documenting the aging process, you can use fillers like Juvederm and Restylane to make this holiday season like no other.

Much like Botox, facial fillers do not entail any major recovery time and there is no cutting or tissue removal. Dermal fillers are simply injected into the targeted areas which are then gently massaged by Dr. Mani for even distribution and a smooth, natural look overall. They’ll restore plumpness to your face so that you can show the camera a youthful, beautiful visage.

Rejuvenate Your Face with Microdermabrasion

The holiday season is the ideal time to have microdermabrasion performed. This procedure sloughs away dead skin cells, fosters the generation of new, healthy skin cells and promotes optimal collagenesis, or the natural production of collagen. With microdermabrasion you can eliminate:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun spots
  • Melasma
  • Enlarged pores
  • Moderate acne scarring

Microdermabrasion can also create tighter, healthier looking skin overall. During this procedure, we will use microdermabrasion wand with a special tip to gently lift away the topmost layer of skin cells. This creates a controlled form of skin damage that stimulates and supports your body’s own natural healing response. Once this healing is complete, you’ll have a bright, vibrant complexion with fewer lines and blemishes. Given that treated skin will need to be protected from the sun, the cold, darker months of winter make it easy to pamper your dermis immediately after a microdermabrasion procedure.

Get Rid of Unwanted Hair Once and for All

Dr. Parvin Mani at San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic can also help you get rid of your unwanted hair across the body and the face. Much like microdermabrasion, laser hair removal is often best performed in the winter. Not only will this help you look amazing in your holiday photos, but it will also make the laser far more effective. With laser hair removal, individual hair follicles and the pigment inside of these is targeted with laser light. Each follicle is duly destroyed and fewer hairs will grow back. Over the course of several treatments, many people achieve permanent hair removal or a permanent reduction in the amount of unwanted hair present on the skin.

Dr. Parvin Mani even offers special cellulite treatments for smoothing, firming and tightening the skin in all of the most common trouble zones. No matter what your aesthetic concerns may be, you can find a relatively non-invasive solution for resolving them. Best of all, you’ll be assured of looking your best in holiday photos and can ring in the new year with optimal confidence. Contact San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic today!
