The costumes and candy of Halloween are now behind us. When that calendar turns over and you see “November” staring back at you, that means the sprint to the holiday season has suddenly begun. Getting together with family at Thanksgiving is just the first of many social occasions, events, and parties that seem to come one after another after another through New Year’s Day. You’ll want to put your best face forward throughout this most wonderful time of the year, and there are some quick, effective, and non-invasive ways to get your skin holiday party ready.
At Dr. Mariano Busso’s Miami aesthetic dermatology clinic, we specialize in non-surgical, minimally invasive therapies that rejuvenate skin, restore youthful appearance, and boost confidence without scalpels and sutures. As you look ahead to the holidays, consider giving yourself one of these gifts which will keep on giving for months to come.
Botox is currently the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure in the United States, ahead of soft tissue fillers, chemical peels, laser hair removal and microdermabrasion. In 2015 alone, 6.7 million Botulinum Toxin Type A procedures were performed.
Botox treatment is extremely versatile and is used to fight a wide range of aesthetic imperfections and medical discomfort. Dr. Busso uses Botox to treat fine lines and wrinkles including crow’s feet, lip wrinkles, laugh lines, neck wrinkles, glabella (between the eyes) lines and smoker lines.
Botox treatments are popular for many reasons other than their impressive results. Botox treatment is a perfect tune-up for the holidays or any time of year because it is quick, painless, requires minimal recovery time, and delivers visible results in a matter of days.
Depending on your treatment area, expect the procedure to take between 10-30 minutes. Reactions are usually minimal. You may notice small, red bumps at the injection site immediately following treatment, but these usually subside within 30 minutes. You’ll see a significant difference just a few days post-procedure and will be ready for whatever the holidays bring your way.
While Botox treatments address lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections by targeting the muscles responsible for causing them, dermal fillers work by plumping facial features to counteract volume loss that is a natural part of aging and a primary cause of wrinkles.
Like Botox, dermal fillers are injected into the skin. Unlike Botox, dermal filler injections tend to address issues in the lower two-thirds of the face, plumping facial features such as the cheeks, lips, chin, and other areas.
Dr. Busso offers a wide array of dermal filler treatments, including:
- Juvéderm Voluma
- Juvéderm Volbella
- Restylane® Silk
- Restylane® Defyne
- Sculptra Aesthetic®
- Silikon™ 1000
Dermal fillers typically remain in the skin for six to 18 months. They work by attracting water to the injection site and increasing collagen production at and around the treatment area. In combination with the filler itself, these effects increase the volume of the area under the skin, stretching the skin and thus reducing and fading wrinkles.
