While we all want to look our best for the holidays or any big event, it is best to plan aesthetic procedures well in advance. This is for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, treatments take time to reach optimal results. For example, Tox (Dysport, Botox, Xeomin, or Jeuveau) can take up to 2 weeks to reach full effect and may require a little touch up. Dermal filler can take 2-4 weeks to settle. And treatments that require the building of collagen and skin remodeling can take 3 months to start really noticing results. Not to mention things like bruising (which can last 2 weeks in some cases), redness, and swelling can occur and will need adequate time to heal. Even starting a new skin care routine takes time. This is for a couple of reasons. The first is the skin can take some time to adjust to the product. The second is the product needs time to show a difference in your complexion.
In a perfect world we would see our providers 1-2 weeks before a big event and be good to go. But the reality is, depending on what your goals are, that likely is not reasonable. Many times we have skin issues we want to address. Sometimes we are working on wrinkles that have already settled in to our skin or pigmentation issues that are deep and stubborn. Perhaps all of the above.
Below is a guide to help you get ready for not just the holiday season but any big event. And remember, if you are closer than you would like to an event, then I would recommend consulting your provider to see what is realistic for you to do to reach your goals in the time frame you have.
9-12 MONTHS FROM EVENT
1 MONTH - 2 WEEKS FROM EVENT
DAYS BEFORE EVENT
The above guide is just that, a guide. It is based on what would be an ideal situation. But at Ananya Aesthetics, we realize that each of us might be at a different leg of our journey. And it is best to remember that minimally invasive aesthetic medicine is best looked at as a journey not a sprint. If your time is limited we will do our best to get you where you would like to be but depending on the situation we may not have that ability. This is not due to lack of effort, it simply may just not be realistic. We pride ourselves in listening to our clients. We also pride ourselves on being honest with our clients. If you have been to Ananya Aesthetics you know that we believe in building relationships with our clients. And the trust that is built is not taken for granted. No matter where you are in your journey or what your goals are, we would love the opportunity to serve you and provide you an experience to show you what makes Ananya Aesthetics so special.
