After a long summer of vacation trips and play dates while the kids were home from school, you are no doubt exhausted. Being a mom is hard work and the kids take priority, often leaving you to forget about self-care pampering.
The fall season, when the kids go back to school, is perfect to take some time for you and plan a nonsurgical mommy makeover. While the term “mommy makeover” often refers to surgical procedures such as tummy tucks and breast augmentation, there are a variety of nonsurgical options available that can give you a fresh new look just in time for the holidays. Take the time now to look for some of these antiaging cosmetic treatments near you.
If you are looking for a way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or add lost volume back to your face, injectables are a great option. Both BOTOX® and dermal fillers allow for a quick and safe treatment that you can get into while the kids are at school, and there is no downtime.
BOTOX injections target your dynamic wrinkles, or those caused by facial movement and expression. These include crow’s feet, frown lines and lines along the forehead. BOTOX works by relaxing the muscles responsible for these lines and reduces their appearance.
Dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM, inject a gel-like substance underneath the skin that helps fill in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as help restore volume in the cheeks that you lose as you age. This volume can help restore your pre-mommy facial contour. As with BOTOX, dermal filler injections are quick and require no downtime.
Microneedling & Microdermabrasion
Microneedling and microdermabrasion are two options designed to target wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage and skin discoloration. Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells while a vacuum system removes the crystals and dead cells. This form of exfoliation helps promote collagen production and the rejuvenation of skin.
Microneedling takes advantage of your skin’s natural ability to heal after injury. During this procedure, small needles puncture the surface of the skin, promoting new collagen and elastin production.
Laser and RF Skin Rejuvenation
If you are looking for complete facial rejuvenation, laser or radiofrequency treatments are a great option. Unlike laser treatments of the past, new technology gets the same results without the downtime and the pain. For example, Pellevé wrinkle reduction uses radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production with no downtime.
With the kids back in school, forget taking their Halloween candy and give yourself a real treat with a mommy makeover.
