Holiday season is known to be one of the happiest and most exciting times of the year. At the same time, with all of the party planning, holiday baking, and searching for perfect gifts, it can also be one of the most exhausting times of the year.
It’s easy for us to get caught up in the stress that the holidays can bring. With all the things to check off on our holiday to-do lists, we tend to neglect the things that seem less important at that moment, such as our own self-care.
We forget that in order to best serve others, we have to also take care of ourselves. Taking care of your skin and body not only makes you glow on the outside, but makes you feel good and glow from within. This holiday season, make sure to take time for yourself!
Here are 5 “Self-Care” Treatments to Get Done Over The Holidays:
Do you have stubborn cellulite that makes you self-conscious of your butt or thigh dimples? Treat yourself to QWO this holiday season!
QWO is the first FDA-approved injectable to treat cellulite in the buttocks of women! You can now also use it to treat thigh dimples.
It’s a quick procedure and other than some soreness and bruising, there isn’t any downtime.
Since you can expect to experience some bruising in the areas of injection, take advantage of the holiday season to schedule your QWO treatments. You’ll be ready just in time for swimsuit season!
It’s pretty much a given that when the holidays come around, we’re all bound to put on at least a couple of extra pounds. If you have stubborn fat that you want to get rid of, treat yourself to CoolSculpting Elite!
CoolSculpting works by freezing the underlying fat cells without damaging the skin’s outer layer through cryolipolysis. This treatment is safe, effective, and there’s little to no recovery or downtime!
Chemical peels are great if you want to reveal youthful glowing skin just in time for your holiday parties and family gatherings.
Here at Dermfx we offer a variety of different chemical peels to treat all sorts of skin conditions from hyperpigmentation to acne and more. Depending on the peel you choose, you may need downtime of up to 7 days, so make sure to keep that in mind when scheduling your appointment.
If you’re looking to combat sun damage, improve skin tone, or reduce redness from rosacea, a Photofacial treatment may be perfect for you!
IPL uses light energy to target the damaged tissue and stimulate collagen production. It’s safe, effective, and there’s only minimal downtime.
With the minimal downtime, you don’t have to worry about taking time off from running all of your holiday errands.
The CO2RE is a great resurfacing laser that reduces the appearance of acne scars, sun damage, enlarged pores, wrinkles and more!
This laser creates microchannels in the skin to stimulate cell renewal and increase collagen production. As a result, this can help with skin tightening and crepey skin.
This treatment does require some down-time (7-14 days), but the results will be long-lasting.
Set time aside to take care of yourself with one of our recommended treatments this holiday season. Schedule a free consultation with one of our providers and they can create an individualized treatment plan just for you.
