The new year is a time for new beginnings. But when it comes to plastic surgery, regular maintenance and an occasional tweak do far more to keep you looking young than I can accomplish with surgery. With that in mind, here are seven beauty resolutions for the new year that will keep you looking great in 2020 and beyond!
- Get professional skincare help.
Stop guessing what the best skincare products are for your skin type, and find out for sure! At Greer Plastic Surgery we offer free consultations with our aesthetician Christy. And with products available for every budget, we can build you a regimen that will give you the best skin you’ve ever had for the New Year!
- Stay consistent with Botox or Xeomin.
When your Botox kicks in you see an immediate improvement in wrinkles. But did you know that if you aren’t consistent with your treatments you might be short changing your results? Over time your skin actually remodels. So if you’re consistent with your Botox injections, wrinkles smooth out over a period of several months to a year. Let your Botox wear off, however, and those little creases will keep getting deeper. Dr. Greer recommends treatments no longer than 3-4 months apart for the best results. If it’s been longer than that, you’re overdue!
- Take advantage of bad weather to do a skin overhaul.
Winter weather gives you a great excuse to hide out for a few days. And that’s all the time you need to recover from a Halo Peel. The Halo Peel smooths fine lines and removes sun damage to leave skin glowing. The best part? Only a few days downtime compared to two weeks with traditional laser peels.
- Get your body ready for warmer weather.
Spring break is sooner than you think. If stubborn fat is keeping you from feeling comfortable in a tank top or bathing suit, CoolSculpting can help! CoolSculpting reduces fat over the arms, abs, chin, and waist, with no incisions and no downtime. Get treated now and see results in time for spring break! Call us today for a free consultation.
- Get rid of summer sun damage.
Winter is the perfect time to fade brown spots, eliminate spider veins, and lighten redness over your face, décolletage, and hands with the Forever Young BBL. The Forever Young has no downtime (though you should stay out of the sun afterward). We recommend maintenance treatments 2-3 times a year to remove ongoing sun damage, build collagen, and keep your skin looking young!
- Ditch those lash extensions.
Lash extensions look amazing, but who has time to get them reapplied every few weeks? CareProst is an easy and affordable way to grow your own lashes longer and thicker. It has the same active ingredient as Latisse, but costs only $55 for a three month supply. Stop in our office to purchase- no appointment needed!
- Get your bikini and underarms ready for summer
If you’ve ever made a last-minute outfit change because you realized you forgot to shave, laser hair removal is for you! Laser hair removal eliminates hair on the legs, underarm, and bikini area. It’s surprisingly affordable and can be done safely on all skin types. Greer Plastic Surgery offers free consultations for laser hair removal.
