For just about anyone, February 14th is about love. Whether you’re attached, striking out on your own, looking for a mate, or just wanting to turn heads, Valentine’s Day is a popular time for that makeover-plus.
The plus in this case might be as simple as a microdermabrasion. This is a great treatment, performed in minutes, with a speedy recovery time, that goes that little bit further than a simple spa visit by removing a layer of dead skin. The benefits? A smoother, more supple skin texture, removal of anything from fine wrinkles to acne scars, all performed without anaesthetic during a lunch break or a quick stop-off on the way home!
At the same time, why not treat yourself to laser hair removal? This one’s great for both men and women, face and body alike. Like microdermabrasion, it’s a simple procedure and it can remove unwanted and unsightly hair to help get you in the mood for Valentine’s Day.
For something a bit more in-depth, and if you have some time to spare pre-Valentine’s, an Obagi Blue Radiance Chemical Peel might just be the solution. This is a peel that, unlike others, doesn’t continue to flake after the treatment, and the skin will be back to normal in just 2-4 days. Except it won’t be normal, it will be better – smoother, with a more youthful glow, smaller pores, and removal of fine lines and wrinkles. And, it will continue to improve for several weeks after the big day!
Of course, there’s probably not time for a full-on facelift, but if you feel you’ve got a few wrinkles or hollow areas, then perhaps a quick session of Botox Cosmetic or Juvederm XC is in order. There should be more than enough time for the treated area to recover. The great thing about fillers is that they are a good value for money, have a short recovery time, and generally don’t require much downtime.
On a final note, for ongoing skincare, don’t forget that a qualified facial plastic surgeon can offer a wide range of medical-grade skin care products that can help you to stay looking your best for longer.
So, treat yourself this Valentine’s Day and contact renowned facial plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Vitenas of Houston, Texas, today at (281) 484-0088.
