Holiday Parties: The Perfect Excuse for a Facial Refresh With Fillers

Marion Ob/Gyn Inc., David W. Foulk, MD

It’s holiday time. The perfect time to sit back, take a break from the bustle of life, and enjoy some downtime with your nearest and dearest.

It’s also a busy time for parties and gatherings. A time when you want to look your best. It’s the perfect excuse for fillers to refresh your smooth, youthful looks.

One of the best ways to extend the life of your filler or Botox results is to undergo maintenance treatments, or a facial refresh.

So, to ensure your holiday dreams of looking rested and relaxed don’t turn into frozen, weird expressions or puffy skin, here is a guide to getting your anti-wrinkle, fresh-face look just right. And, exactly why it’s time to consider a refresh before you step into holiday season.

Fillers can help you look younger and refreshed

Facial fillers are designed to treat wrinkles and fine lines on your face that are the result of muscle movement.

Take a look in the mirror and squint just a little bit. Do you notice lines forming around your eyes and mouth? Stop squinting and see what happens. Thanks to years of constant muscle movement, you may notice that those static lines remain.

Fillers work to relax the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. Once your muscles are relaxed, the overlying lines and wrinkles are reduced, softened, or even eliminated, leaving you looking refreshed and relaxed.

Common treatment areas with fillers

Some of the common areas of the face that can be treated with fillers include:

Before getting to work on your facial refresh, Dr. Foulk carefully considers the overall balance of your face and the amount of fillers needed to create a smoother appearance.

The desired outcome of the treatment and the volume of filler needed to achieve the preferred outcome will vary from one person to another. Overall, balance is important, and it all depends on the depth of your lines.

Keeping things natural

Some cosmetic fillers have a negative reputation for making you look unnatural, or “frozen.” These kinds of results only tend to happen when too much of a product is used. With all types of facial injectables, it is better to start with too little filler than too much. If you do end up requiring more, you can simply book another treatment.

However, Dr. Foulk is a skilled and professional practitioner, so you are assured you will leave looking natural and revitalized. In fact, while everyone else is scrambling around to do last minute gift shopping and mounds of cooking, you’ll step right into the holiday season looking well-rested and youthful.

A facial refresh is quick and easy

The biggest benefit of a facial refresh with fillers is that it’s quick and easy. You don’t need any special preparation, and there is no downtime. You can simply pop in for your treatment and carry on with your day.

Fillers take around 30 to 45 minutes to administer. They are so fast, you could book your treatment during lunch and go straight back to work, or your next holiday party.

Despite the big rush to get ready for Christmas and the New Year, don’t forget to get your face ready and jump right into your holiday parties and celebrations looking like this year has been very kind. In other words, look and feel refreshed and rejuvenated as you see in the New Year!
