Spring Preparations: Choosing The Right Procedure For You

Summer season will be in full swing before we know it, so now is the time to get ready for all the warm weather festivities! While many people choose winter as their beauty season of choice, there are many strong reasons spring makes the right time to pursue your aesthetic goals.

Advantages of Spring Procedures
Having your cosmetic work done in early spring allows you ample time to heal completely before the busy summer season – which brings vacations, weddings and family reunions onto the scene. You can also take advantage of cooler temperatures conducive to healing and spring clothing that will hide most signs of a procedure. When the time comes to don your more skin-baring fashions, you will be ready to show off your new you!

Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are very popular at this time of year as well, allowing you to put finishing touches on your look with time to spare before the summer social season rolls around.

Surgical Options
For a more definitive solution, there are a few surgical options to check out during the spring season. Here’s the lowdown:

Mini Facelift: The mini-lift provides enhanced definition along the jawline and smooths away even deep creases in the face around the nose, mouth and chin. Incisions for the mini-lift are very short, ensuring you can enjoy a faster recovery.

Eyelid Surgery: Tired, drooping eyelids can get some help with eyelid surgery designed to refresh and awaken the eye area on the upper lids, lower lids or both lids at the same time.

Neck Liposuction: Thinking about wearing a scarf this summer? With neck liposuction, you can create a smoother, sleeker contour from the shoulders to the face by removing isolated areas of fat from around the neck.

Mole Removal: Say goodbye to troublesome lesions that are making you self-conscious about your appearance.

Non-Surgical Options
If surgery is not for you, don’t stress. There’s still plenty of treatments that will keep you looking fresh for summer in no time.

One of the top treatments I offer in preparation for summer is an injectable procedure to treat excessive sweating, a medical condition known as hyperhidrosis. You can face even the warmest days of summer with less underarm wetness and embarrassment.

Other non-surgical procedures to consider for summer include:

Acne Injections: If your acne condition is making you self-conscious about upcoming summer events, injectable treatments might offer you clearer skin in time for those occasions.

Jaw shaping: Achieved with Botox/Xeomin injections into the masseter muscle, giving you a more heart-shaped appearance.

Facial Fillers: Injectables such as Voluma, Juvederm, Radiesse, Belotero can all be placed anywhere from the under eye hollows, cheeks, nasolabial lines and marionette lines, and lips, to soften, plump and refresh away our winter blues. These treatments show immediate results and last anywhere from four to six months to a year or two.

Wrinkle reducers: injectables such as Botox/Xeomin are placed in the lines of the forehead, between the eyes (eleven lines or glabellar lines) or lines around the eyes (crows feet lines) to soften your appearance making you appear more rested and youthful.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation: The perfect fix for those of you bummed out about dull skin after the winter season. You can freshen up with laser procedures created to refresh and rejuvenate the skin.

PRP facials: Platelet-rich plasma is all the rage, ranging from uses in orthopedic and cardiac surgery to vampire facials and slowing down hair loss by providing growth factors to stimulate hair follicles. After laser skin resurfacing, placing the PRP under the skin and on top, improves healing and results.

Spring has sprung and summer is right around the corner. Now is the time to get ready for the season with a cosmetic procedure to enhance your appearance—hope these inside tips help you make your next moves into the summer season!
