It’s that time of year again! Time for celebrations and gatherings with friends, family and co-workers. With all the upcoming photo ops and reunions with loved ones, it’s no wonder that many Americans turn to Denver’s top all-inclusive skincare facility.
Procedures with little to no downtime
Although there is a wide variety of reasons people visit their medical practitioner this time of year, wanting to look your best for a holiday party is definitely a top one. You may be thinking it is too late. After all, the celebrations are right around the corner. Great news! Many of the top procedures this time of year are nonsurgical, with fast results and little to no downtime.
2-3 Weeks Before
If you are planning ahead, you have multiple options available. Although you can receive an injection much closer to your parties, we do recommend 2-3 weeks. Some patients have minor bruising, which is normal for the site of an injection. If you have had facial injections before, you likely know how your skin reacts already. If this is your first time, allow yourself ample recovery time to play it safe. Here are some of the popular injections you should consider when you are 2-3 weeks out from your important gathering.
Botox needs no introduction. It is one of the most popular treatments for fine lines and wrinkles around the forehead and eyes. Although many patients experience almost immediate results, it can take up to a week to two weeks to really show the full impact. The good news is that it lasts for 3 -4 months so you won’t have to even think about it again until all your holiday parties are past and we are on our way to Spring.
Juvederm Dermal Fillers
Juvederm dermal fillers and injections can be used to add subtle volume to your chin, jaw, cheek area, lips and to treat small lines near your nose and mouth. The results are like a mini liquid facelift, without the downtime.
1-2 Weeks Before
As we get a little bit closer to the holidays, there are still quite a few good options.
IPL Photo Facials
IPL Photo Facial treatments help to treat sun damage, wrinkles, age spots, discoloring, large pores and more. Results can be seen after one treatment, though it is recommended to continue with 3-4 treatments a month apart.
Micro Laser Peels
These peels provide your skin with a healthy glow almost immediately after treatment. They remove the outer/dead layers of your skin to provide more even tone and smooth texture. We do recommend a downtime of 2-3 days after treatment, as your skin may appear to be sunburned during that time. However, this is a great option as the holiday parties approach.
Chemical (and Non-Chemical) Peels
There are a wide variety of “chemical” peels out there, although some of them use all organic ingredients. Depending on the results you are looking for and your skin type, there may be some that are better for you specifically. We recommend speaking to a Skin Specialist to find which one is best for you.

If you did not plan in advance or need a quick fix a few days before a party, ditch the Botox and Chemical Peels and consider one of these treatments instead.
Micro-needling & Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Micro-needling is a minimally-invasive procedure with little downtime but amazing results! The microneedling treatment builds collagen, reduces pore size, and tightens the skin, getting you ready for that holiday glow. With each treatment, you continue to grow collagen. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) can be added to your microneedling treatment. The PRP treatment uses your own blood to promote a natural, faster healing process.
Microdermabrasion can soften and tone skin without the downtime. Just one treatment provides results you will love. This treatment removes dead skin, creating an even look. It can even reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Recovery time is typically 24 hours, during which you may experience a pink tone to your skin.
On the Day Of
If you have waited until the day of your event, your options are a little more limited. The results may not be as extreme as the other treatments mentioned above, but do not discount the effect of a classic facial. Facials can immediately provide a nice smooth feel and a slight glow to your face. If you have sensitive skin and have never had a facial before, make sure to discuss this with your skin specialist before jumping in.
