Midnight shopping sprees, mad dashes to the sale racks, mile-long lines at checkout: These are but a few visions that may come to mind for many of us when pondering Black Friday. But at COR Medspa, we’re thinking about injectables. Stay with us, we’ll explain. Black Friday means that Christmas and Hanukkah are only a month away, which means the next two weeks are prime days to undergo Botox® and dermal filler treatments if you want to enjoy optimal results before the holidays. Of course, we’re also thinking about every other treatment on our advanced menu.
Since our mission at COR Medspa is to help you look radiant under the mistletoe or while lighting the menorah, here are a few timing tips for top holiday aesthetic treatments:
Optimal results with this injectable can appear any time from four to 14 days after your treatment, so advance planning is key. With every injection, there is also a risk of swelling, pinpoint bleeding, and bruising, so factoring in possible social downtime is a must. We recommend scheduling Botox a good two weeks before your event.
While dermal fillers provide immediate volume, they also incur some swelling, which can last up to a week for some. Dermal fillers also take time to fully settle into your facial contours. So if you’re looking to flaunt optimal benefits, schedule your dermal fillers two to three weeks before you need to see results.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
If you’re scheduling a BBL™ photofacial to fade dark spots and other pigmentation issues, we recommend scheduling your BBL a good week before your event. While this non-invasive light treatment doesn’t break your skin, it does bring pigmentation issues up to the surface, which darken before flaking off in the days following your treatment. To play it safe, plan your BBL a full two weeks before your event to flaunt perfectly smooth, evenly-toned skin.
Halo™ laser skin renewal is a different story entirely. This skin renewing treatment resurfaces your face by creating thousands of tiny channels in your skin, literally spurring new skin growth. We recommend scheduling Halo or other resurfacing treatments such as ProFractional™, MicroLaserPeel®, and NanoLaserPeel® a good month or two before you want results. You’ll notice improvements much sooner, but your improvements with these treatments only continue as your body continues to produce vibrant new collagen, so waiting a good month or two only helps your cause.
There’s no downtime to plan for with HydraFacial. If you need to hit the refresh button on your complexion and you don’t have time to spare, HydraFacial is the ideal treatment for you. This gentle yet intense skin resurfacing treatment helps to exfoliate dead, dull skin cells, clear away impurities and replenish your skin with hydrating nutrients to reveal smoother, clearer, more evenly-toned skin without a moment of downtime. HydraFacial is so easy on your skin, you can schedule your HydraFacial the day of your event! We recommend a series of treatments for your best results.
