Autumn has officially arrived, which means the holidays are right around the corner. We all want to look our best before meeting friends and family—and our medical spa treatments here in Rochester can help. From skin care to body contouring, we have the tools you need to rejuvenate your look from head to toe. Follow our treatment timeline below to give yourself a beautiful glow before your next big event.
8 Weeks Out: CoolTone™
Sometimes a healthy lifestyle isn’t enough to slim down those trouble spots. CoolTone—made by the creators of CoolSculpting—is a nonsurgical treatment that tones the muscles of the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. The procedure works by using electromagnetic energy to make muscles contract, much like they would during traditional exercise. Cooltone also has the added benefit of combining muscle toning with fat reduction, allowing you to sculpt your body even further.
The procedure works best for those who want to give a finishing touch to specific parts of the body. After 2 or more treatments, your muscles look firmer and have a more defined, contoured appearance.
6 Weeks Out: Dermal Fillers
We lose fat, collagen, and elastin in the skin as we grow older. Dermal fillers restore some of this youthful volume using the hydrating power of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA retains moisture, helping your skin look naturally plump and smooth. Many patients use fillers to fade wrinkles, add volume to the lips, or restore age-related hollowing in the cheeks.
Dermal fillers come in many variations and product lines so that all your needs are covered. Scheduling your dermal filler appointment 6 weeks out allows time for a touch-up 2 weeks before your holiday gathering if needed. Depending on the type of filler used, results typically last 3 to 4 months.
5 Weeks Out: Sciton® SkinTyte™
Loose skin can make you look older than you feel. With SkinTyte, you can tighten skin on your face and body without the downtime or invasiveness of surgery. SkinTyte uses infrared light to heat the deeper layers of the skin and promote new collagen production. Results begin to show within a couple of weeks and continue to improve for several months, giving your skin a naturally tauter and firmer appearance.
We recommend completing a series of treatments for the best results, with each treatment spaced at least 4 weeks apart. Scheduling your first treatment 5 weeks out allows you time to have a second treatment 1 week before your event. Because there is little to no downtime involved after the treatment, you’ll be ready to step out looking your best by the big day.
4 Weeks Out: BOTOX®
Sometimes it takes more than a strong cup of coffee to look awake and alert. BOTOX is a great treatment option if you want to smooth away wrinkles that create a tired or angry appearance. It addresses deep wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines, and more. Our experienced injectors produce subtle, flattering results that never look “frozen” or “overdone.”
BOTOX injections are often combined with dermal fillers for comprehensive anti-aging results. If you want to contour your face while taking years off your appearance, ask your provider about using BOTOX and fillers together.
3 Weeks Out: miraDry®
Summer isn’t the only time you need to worry about unwanted sweat. Warm fires and thick sweaters can make excessive sweating a common annoyance in autumn and winter. MiraDry solves this problem by delivering controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area to eliminate sweat glands. This procedure reduces wetness, unwanted odor, and even underarm hair.
As an FDA-approved treatment, it is a safe and trusted procedure that requires no surgery or needles. Having a miraDry session in early November can put you in great shape as soon as Thanksgiving.
2 Weeks Out: Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Harsh winter weather and a hectic schedule can leave your skin looking ashy and dull. Luckily, our experienced dermatology team can help you create a customized skin rejuvenation plan.
Laser skin resurfacing treatments brighten the skin and help you achieve a natural, youthful glow. Options such as Halo Pro can fade freckles and scars, while Contour TRL repairs long-term skin damage caused by sun exposure. If you want to reduce dark spots or red, splotchy blemishes, Vbeam Prima may be your best choice. Your provider can help you find the best laser treatment to address your specific skincare needs.
For the best results, schedule your treatment at least 2 to 4 weeks before your special occasion.
