5 Face Treatments to Look Your Best for the Holidays

5 Face Treatments to Look Your Best for the Holidays

It might feel like Summer was just yesterday, but Fall is here, and the holidays are approaching faster than you realize. It’s time to start thinking about this year’s holiday plans, from get-togethers and seasonal menus to family photo-ops.

If you’re thinking about enjoying aesthetic or cosmetic procedures to achieve your best possible appearance in time for the holidays, it’s time to start planning your treatment timeline.

At Apex Dermatology of Westlake Village, California, Dr. Karin Harp, Dr. Aria Vazirnia, Kristin Rupert PA-C, Mary Hanna BC-NP, Lani Keene LE and their team have all your facial cosmetic and skin care needs covered, from dermal fillers to laser skin resurfacing! Here are five of our favorite treatment options to have you looking radiant when the holiday season rolls around.

1. Botox

Botox® injections conceal the fine lines and wrinkles that appear in aging skin due to facial muscle movements. You can use Botox to address wrinkles across your forehead, between your eyebrows, and around your mouth area. The Apex Dermatology team also offers Xeomin® injections, a similar treatment.

Your results with Botox and Xeomin start to appear within a week, and most people see full results in about two weeks. Your results last for around 2-4 months, and you can use maintenance treatments to continue to prevent the appearance of targeted facial lines and wrinkles.

2. Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers, injected under your skin, restore and support lost volume, giving you a more desirable facial appearance and maintaining a healthy look.

Dermal fillers come in a variety of specially-formulated treatment options. Talk to your provider at Apex Dermatology about the best filler products to address aesthetic concerns around your eyes, cheeks, lips, and chin.

Your results with dermal fillers can last for a year or more. Many people find that they need a few weeks after the injection appointment to “settle,” and achieve the optimum appearance-enhancing effect.  We offer a large variety of well-experienced reliable fillers in order to customize your treatment for your individual needs and facial structure.

3. Laser skin resurfacing

Could you benefit from a total transformation of your skin? You should look into laser skin resurfacing. This cosmetic treatment gives your whole face a once-over with state-of-the-art laser technology, eradicating dead and damaged skin cells.

Laser skin resurfacing also triggers the production of new collagen in the treatment area over the weeks following your appointment. For that reason, your results continue to look better and better in the months after your treatment. Complete healing and resolution of redness can take 1-14 days after your appointment depending on the specific treatment.

Apex Dermatology offers several laser skin resurfacing options, so please book an appointment to talk with our team about treatment with the Fraxel Dual Laser, Juliet Aesthetic for Fractional Erbium, Laser Genesis, or Clear + Brilliant® systems.

4. Skin tightening

You can tighten up loose or sagging skin with this non-surgical treatment option, giving you the results of a facelift without the surgical recovery time. Non-invasive Thermage® FLX treatments use radiofrequency (RF) energy to effectively tighten and contour your facial skin. Typically, patients only experience minimal discomfort during treatment.

Morpheus 8 Radiofrequency Microneedling is a start of the art treatment in our hands which gives more intensive skin tightening, pore shrinkage, jowl reduction, resurfacing and we can event target unwanted fat and laxity under the chin, neck or body.  A Morpheus 8 series for face, neck, chest, eyelids or body could be your next favorite treatment discovery.  Apex patients and team consistently love it!

Results appear gradually but steadily after your treatment session, as new collagen production accelerates and your skin’s elasticity and lifting increases.

5. Microdermabrasion

For a skin care solution you can use without a lot of scheduled lead time, try microdermabrasion. This procedure sands away the outer layers of your skin that hold imperfections. Microdermabrasion works for all skin types, and doesn’t require any anesthesia or downtime.

The Apex Dermatology team can also use dermaplaning or dermal blading to scrape away layers of dead skin cells and reveal the fresh new skin, free from blemishes, scars, and sun damage, underneath.
