Start now to prepare your skin for the holiday season. Once the frantic rush starts, most of us don’t find time for ourselves. Some treatments will give an instant glow while others may have a few days’ downtime. Some of our treatments may even take up to two weeks to see the full result, so don’t delay. We all want to look our very best, especially now that we can have gatherings again with family and friends.
Review the following list of common skin concerns and the solutions we can offer such as neuromodulators at our Toronto-based Gidon Aesthetics and MediSpa office.
- Unwanted Lines and Creases
Ban the brow and mouth frown lines that can make you look sad, worried, and stressed. Neuromodulator injections can relax the muscles that cause those unwanted expressions. Fillers can replace lost volume and smooth wrinkles.
- Jowls and a saggy jawline
Aging causes loose, saggy skin. Radio frequency skin tightening can firm and lift skin, tighten existing collagen, and stimulate the production of new collagen.
- Rough texture
Our gentle Clear and Bright laser stimulates collagen, exfoliates the skin and results in smooth, fresh, glowing skin. Microdermabrasion removes old surface cells to reveal fresh, new skin cells.
- Dull Complexion
Medical grade facials combined with light chemical peels give an instant glow without downtime. Our Oxyfacial and dermalinfusion with specialty serums are relaxing treatments that promise radiant skin.
- Brown Spots
Skin appears older with the presence of brown spots caused by aging and the sun. IPL and fractional laser resurfacing can lighten the brown spots for a clearer, brighter, smoother complexion. Maintain the treatment results with fading serums and creams as well as daily sun protection.
Sleep deprivation, sweet treats, and stress may cause acne breakouts. Start with a gentle cleanser containing salicylic, glycolic, or lactic acid, and then apply a hyaluronic acid serum and an oil-free moisturizer. A benzoyl peroxide gel can be obtained over the counter in pharmacies to help control pimples. If this regimen does not help, schedule an appointment with us to discuss prescription medications and acne treatments such as chemical peels and photopneumatic therapy.
- Dry Skin
Cold winter weather brings decreased humidity and can cause dry, irritated patches, especially on the cheeks. Products containing hyaluronic acid, ceramides, glycerin, or lactic acid can help retain moisture in the skin and keep it hydrated.
- Which Skin Care Products Should you use?
A busy schedule may prevent you from following your usual skin care routine. Prepare your skin for the holiday season by applying antioxidant serum and sunscreen every morning to protect against UV damage. Use hyaluronic acid serum and moisturizer at night to prevent dryness and retinol a few times a week to keep skin smooth. Our therapeutic exfoliating masks used once or twice a week will exfoliate old skin and ensure you will glow during the holidays.
Start glowing with a combination of these treatments to ensure you look fantastic for the holidays! Schedule an appointment with us at Gidon Aesthetics and MediSpa for cosmetic procedures such as neuromodulators in Toronto and feel confident you will look your best. Call us at 416-483-4541.
