Have You Got Enough Time to Get Your Glow Back for Christmas?

Is your skin on the naughty or nice list for this Christmas?

Get your glow on and get ready for party season!
With the holiday season fast approaching our minds are turning to Christmas; worrying about choosing gifts, planning festive events and indulging in all the amazing party food!
The stress of cramming it all in, combined with the autumnal and winter weather changes (and finally caving into sticking on the central heating!) can all collectively take a toll on our complexion.
In this blog post, we’ll explore the ideal party-prep treatments and provide you with the perfect timing to schedule your appointments at SkinHD so you can look and feel your best this holiday season.

Botox®: The Ultimate Wrinkle Eraser

Botox® is SkinHD’s most popular treatment for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It addresses concerns such as crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles. A free consultation is required to determine suitability. Typically, it takes 1-2 weeks to see the full results, which last for 3-4 months, but you may need a little top up at your review appointment 2 weeks after your initial treatment. We recommend scheduling your Botox® appointment at least a month before your Christmas Do to ensure the best results.

Lip Fillers: Pout Perfect for Mistletoe Moments

Lip Fillers are one of SkinHD’s specialties; re-volumising and plumping out lips and evening out any asymmetry with natural looking results. The number of treatments needed depends on your desired outcome, but most clients achieve their ideal look with 0.5-1ml of product, which can be applied in one session. Results are immediate, with a few days of minor swelling, and typically last 6-12 months. We’d recommend arranging your lip appointment at least 2 weeks before any big event for swelling to subside, or a little earlier if you tend to bruise easily.

Jawline Fillers: Sculpting the Perfect Profile

Concerned about a weak chin or sagging skin in the jowl area? Jawline fillers are perfect to provide a more defined, contoured jawline and balance out your facial profile. Just one treatment is usually required, giving immediate results that last for 12-18 months, but can take a couple of weeks for any swelling or bruising to resolve, so we’d advise getting your jawline filler appointment booked in 3-4 weeks before your event.

Cheek Fillers: Lift and Re-volumise

We tend to notice the loss of volume in our mid-face area before anywhere else and can lead to a flat or sunken appearance. Restoring this volume with cheek dermal fillers can help to regain a youthful appearance in just one session. You can expect to see some immediate results – but as with all dermal fillers – we’d recommend arranging your appointment at least 3 weeks before any parties so any swelling and bruising has settled.

Chemical Peels: Get your skin glowing!

Prep your skin for a flawless makeup application by gently resurfacing the skin with chemical peels. Our peels are perfect for addressing concerns such as uneven skin tone and texture, helping to lift superficial pigmentation, controlling acne/breakouts and minimising the appearance of pores. We have a few different types of peels at SkinHD; our light peels have no downtime at all, whereas some of the stronger peels you may be actively peeling for up to 2 weeks after your treatment. We’d recommend a course of 3-5 light peels spaced a few weeks apart, or 1-2 of the deeper peels to get best results.

Microneedling: Stimulate collagen production naturally

Microneedling improves skin texture, addressing concerns like scars, fine lines, stretch marks and enlarged pores, by stimulating your natural collagen production. A course of 3-6 sessions is best recommended, each two weeks apart. Results start to become noticeable around 6 weeks after your first session and continue to improve over the following months, so you’d want to start your treatments in October/November to start seeing the results for Christmas. Microneedling may leave your skin feeling a little red for 24 hours and may feel a little sensitive for a few days, so best to leave at least a week after your last session before any big events.

Profhilo, Sunekos and other Skin Boosters – Improve Collagen Production

Our collagen biostimulators are fantastic treatments to combat skin laxity and overall skin quality, boost hydration in the skin and stimulate collagen production to give you a natural looking lift that glows. Skin booster treatments are not just for the face either, they can be used on the body too!
A course of 2-3 treatments a few weeks apart is typically required, with results becoming visible within a couple of weeks. The outcome is a natural, refreshed appearance and better skin health that can last up to 6 months (longer with maintenance sessions). Learn more about Collagen Biostimulators

Tear Trough Fillers: Brighten Tired Looking Eyes

All those late nights and stress in the lead up to Christmas can leave you with dark circles and a sunken appearance under the eyes. Applying dermal fillers can help re-volumise the tear trough area, erasing the signs of fatigue and smoothing away any crepey lines.
The effects last for 6-9 months, ensuring your eyes sparkle well into 2024! We’d recommend booking in for your tear trough treatment at least 3 weeks before any parties, to ensure any swelling and bruising has resolved.
