With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the bend, many men and women are focused on creating the perfect holiday experience. Food, friends, and fun holiday decor are just the tip of the iceberg, and they won’t quit until they have a party fit to grace the likes of Southern Living. But many also have that niggling voice in the back of their head, “What about family pictures?”

Non-Surgical Procedures

The effects of Botox and derma fillers are temporary, lasting a few months to a year, so patients don’t need to worry about committing to a major procedure before they’re ready. If you’re looking to smooth wrinkles, rejuvenate the skin, and restore a youthful glow for the holidays, one of our non-surgical procedures may be right for you.

Injectible Fillers

Injectible fillers fill creases, wrinkles, and depressions in the skin. Juvederm treats folds around the nose and mouth, smoothing the skin for up to one year. Fat injection treatments use fat from the stomach to smooth wrinkles and creases. Unlike other fillers, fat injections are often permanent. Patients rarely experience complications, since the fat is harvested from the patient’s own tissue. Botox targets the facial muscles, tautening them at a subdermal level to smooth the overall appearance of the face. Botox improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines around the eyes and forehead. The results typically last three to four months, but after several treatments, many patients see more lasting results.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels rejuvenate the skin, restoring a healthy, youthful glow. Although chemical peels don’t target wrinkles the way injectible fillers do, TCA Peels and Glycolic Acid treatments may minimize the appearance of fine lines.
