Stress less this holiday season with some simple timing tips to get your skin in tip-top shape for Turkey Day through the New Year. Here, we share a timeline outlining when to start popular beauty treatments like fillers, facials and more to see results in time for festivities with friends and family.
Medical-Grade Skincare: At Least 8 Weeks Out
Thinking of starting a new skincare regimen for wrinkles, acne or other skin issues? You’ll want to get professional recommendations and start new products at least eight weeks before your holiday party to see results in time.
Many topical skincare ingredients can take up to 8 weeks to show results on the surface, but that doesn’t mean they’re not working behind the scenes in the meantime!
IPL Therapy: 4 to 6 Weeks Out
Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments can address a number of common skin concerns, ranging from fine lines and wrinkles to acne scars and redness. It can take 4 to 6 weeks to see the full results of each IPL session, so start your first treatment at least this far in advance to enjoy results in time for your event.
While you might need 3 to 6 IPL treatments to maximize your results, you should see a noticeable improvement to your complexion after each session, as results are cumulative.
Injectables: At Least 2 Weeks Out
Schedule injectables like dermal fillers and BOTOX® at least 2 weeks before holiday photos or parties. It can take up to 2 weeks for swelling to subside and for your final results to develop.
Facials: 1 Week Out
Facials are excellent treatments to schedule around a week before a holiday event to both give your skin a boost of radiance and give your mind a chance to relax and recharge in the midst of the holiday hustle and bustle.
