Holiday Glow – Getting Your Skin Ready for the Holidays

Emory Aesthetic Center Winter GlowYou bought the dress, the new shoes and the jewelry. You secured a babysitter. You have an appointment for your hair. But have you thought about your face? Is your skin ready for the holidays?

The Emory Aesthetic Center Spa can help get your skin ready for the holiday season. The question is how much time do you have before that special event? Let’s discuss the options available to get your skin glowing.

For the Planner – You have everything scheduled weeks in advance.

Since the amount of time required for recovery is not an issue for you, you are a candidate for the most effective non-surgical treatments we have available. This means you will have the most significant change to your skin for your upcoming event.

  • Fractional laser resurfacing can be performed to improve fine lines and wrinkles and the overall texture of your skin. The treatment requires premedication and topical numbing cream. The treatment takes about 45minutes to perform. We ask that you have someone available to drive you home. After the procedure you are very red and swollen and this can last for 3-5days. Your skin will be flaky and rough for up to a week after the treatment. Do this well in advance of a special event. The results can be amazing.
  • Micro-needling is the latest innovation for our Spa, and is similar to fractional laser resurfacing. The difference is that micro-needling is done with small needles as opposed to the laser. It helps with fine lines and improving pore size. Topical numbing cream is used. After the treatment your skin is red, lasting for 1-2 days. The redness however can be easily covered with makeup. Depending on how aggressive your treatment is, some bruising may be evident for up to a week. This is another great option for getting your skin to glow.
  • Medium depth chemical peels are another great way to get your holiday glow. The peel is well tolerated. Minimal discomfort is noted. Immediately after the peel the skin will be red. The peeling process typically begins 3 days after the treatment and can last 4-5 days. Your skin peels in sheets as if you have had sunburn. Beautiful skin is uncovered.
  • Intense pulsed laser (IPL) is another option if you have recovery time. IPL uses laser energy to remove dark spots, irregular pigmentation, and broken blood vessels. It is easily tolerated with minimal discomfort. Your skin will be very red the day of treatment. Brown spots and vessels will appear much darker for up to one week. A great option if spots are an issue.

For the Procrastinator – You tend to do things last minute. You just found a dress and the party is in 2 days, but there is still time to improve your skin.

• A microdermabrasion treatment can be performed to reveal brighter skin. Fine crystals speed exfoliation and the superficial and dull layer of skin is removed. Your skin will be slightly pink after the treatment but will resolve in a few hours. Your new glow is evident the following day.

• We offer a variety of facials that will leave you slightly red after the treatment, although it will resolve in a few hours or the following day. They are a wonderful combination of stress reduction and skin improvement.

• A HydraFacial™ is a multi-step treatment that hydrates the skin and results in glowing skin at the completion of the procedure. No down time required.

No matter how much time you have, the licensed aestheticians at the Emory Aesthetic Center Spa can create an individualized care plan that works for you. We offer all of these treatments and can help you accomplish the goal of glowing skin for the holidays. Take the first step to getting your holiday glow and make an appointment.
