This is such a busy time of the year for me that I find I’m not as regular about using my skin care products, and I notice that my skin looks dull and I’m getting more blemishes than normal.  Do you have any suggestions?

During the holiday season many of us have so much on our plates that skin care ends up at the bottom of the to-do list.  On the other hand, it’s also the time of year when we want to look our best for parties, events, and photos. What can you do to look your best, without visible healing or downtime?  We recommend a great facial.  Facials are a good thing to do for your skin year-round, but especially during the holidays if you’re not as diligent about your skin care routine.  You may have it every week if you need it, it’s relaxing, and your skin looks better immediately.  The HydraFacial is our patients’ favorite.  It uses a patented system to exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin. We customize your HydraFacial to address your needs, whether it’s dryness, fine lines, breakouts, oily skin, enlarged pores, or discoloration.  Anyone may have a HydraFacial, even if you have sensitive skin.

Here are a couple of other tips to help you look great through the holidays.  If you get a large blemish, call us.  We can usually treat you the same day, and you’ll see improvement the next day.

If you have one week before your party, you have time to fade your facial lines with Botox or a similar neuromodulator treatment.  This is a simple way to look refreshed yet natural and is especially beautiful for photos.

Is there anyone who doesn’t indulge in holiday treats?  If so, we haven’t met them yet!  Enjoy, but try not to overdo with sugar, carbs, and alcohol, as these cause breakouts, puffiness, and redness for many people.
