A calendar for a new you in the New Year
By Dr. Kelly Collins, Premier Wellness Center and Aglow Medspa
It is the new year and time to turn the page and start fresh or “refreshed.” Make this year about “you time” do yourself a favor, make a plan and stick to it by getting it all on the calendar at the beginning of the year. This way there will be no broken resolutions, no guessing, no second thoughts, it will all be on the calendar, scheduled and waiting for you to show up and take care of you.
Here is a good overall guideline and yearly treatment plan:
Schedule a consultation with your aesthetic medical provider to come up with a precise and customized treatment plan to help you reach your goals. Have all annual blood work completed, start a diet diary, a fitness plan and don’t forget to pay special attention to hormone testing and treatment especially for anyone over the age of 40.
This month is for lovers and a good way to get ready for Valentine’s Day is to make sure your lips are luscious and ready for kissing. Schedule an appointment to have your lips plumped with dermal filler—just enough for the perfect kiss!
This is a good time to start to get ready for bathing suit season by undergoing a few laser hair removal treatments and it is also a good time to get in one last photofacial/IPL laser treatment on your face, neck, chest and hands. March is a good time to schedule this because is best to do laser treatments such as these before the sun gets too intense and before you are out soaking up the rays.
Time for a little Botox. Ideally, Botox treatments should be repeated every three to four months and it is always a great idea to plan out and schedule the months you will need to get in for an appointment. As always, Botox is still the No. 1 aesthetic treatment performed worldwide. A few quick injections can smooth out years of frowning.
Celebrate Mother’s Day by pampering yourself and deep clean your skin with a HydraFacial treatment. HydraFacial is kind of like steam cleaning your carpets and should be scheduled on a regular basis for optimal results. HydraFacial works by sucking out all of the bad junk, opening and cleaning out pores, all while infusing antioxidants and nutrients deep into the skin. You will leave feeling refreshed and glowing after this treatment.
Get ready for those summer vacations by stocking up on physician-grade products such as SPF and products rich in vitamin C. Schedule an appointment to have skin tags, cherry angiomas and brown spots removed.
Make a “big bang” in July by scheduling a nonsurgical liquid facelift. Don’t know what it is? No worries, schedule a free consultation to find out! No surgery, just remarkable results.
Don’t forget your hands. So many people spend so much time making sure to take care of their face, but they forget what really gives away their age is their hands. There are many nonsurgical solutions to turning back time on your hands including laser and injectable treatments. Another tip, when applying physician-grade products and SPF to your face, neck and chest, don’t forget to also treat your hands at the same time. This little tip can make a world of difference.
Now is the time to start thinking about healing your skin from all of the added sun exposure you incurred over the summer months. Ease back into laser treatments with a no-downtime, pain-free ClearLift treatment. This treatment is safe to perform year-round, requires absolutely no downtime from working out or life in general. This is a true “lunch-time” procedure and no one will even know you had a treatment. This laser treatment works by targeting deeper layers of the skin in order to build collagen, lift, tighten and improve your skin’s tone and texture. A risk-free solution to beautiful skin.
Time to get serious and “shed the dead,” skin cells with a medical-grade chemical peel. There are no-peel, mid-level-peel and deep-peel options available, schedule a free consultation and discover which peel is right for you.
Think about skin resurfacing this month with an erbium laser treatment. There are several great options ranging from a light laser peel all the way to a deep blasting off of the skin’s surface. There are also specialized erbium options such as the Madonna Eyelift and the Youthful Essence Combination treatment. Scheduling a free consultation will ensure you select the treatment right for you.
Time to get your holiday glow on with a luxurious red carpet facial customized exactly for you. Slow down from the holiday rush, pamper yourself and leave feeling completely refreshed and renewed.
This is just a sample of the great treatments you can undergo. As always, the best approach is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with your medical aesthetic provider to outline the exact treatment plan will help you to meet your aesthetic and wellness goals for 2020.
