Treatments for Two Weeks Before Your Reunion
You want your new self to look effortless, but with this easy treatment it really might be. Juvederm is an injectable, meaning it’s injected into the skin to smooth out wrinkles, creases, and create volume in the face. It’s also used to plump lips and fill in sagging areas of the face and eye sockets.
Procedure: You will get a series of injections of the solution, which will be done after around 10 minutes.
Recovery: You might see some swelling for up to two weeks.
Lasts: for about 6 months.
Botox & Dysport
Botox & Dysport are some of the quickest, safest, and most popular ways to get rid of expression lines and deep wrinkles.
Procedure: It’s only a series of small injections, which should be done in less than 10 minutes
Recovery: Almost none
Lasts: 2-4 months
Treatments for a Month Before Your Reunion
Here’s the light side to laser skin treatments: IPL uses pulses of light to treat brown spots, facial veins and capillaries, redness, rosacea and signs of aging.
Procedure: Depending on your type of skin, a series of sessions 2-4 weeks apart is recommended.
Recovery: There is no downtime, but if you do get residual redness it may last for up to a week after treatment.
Treatments for Two Months Before Your Reunion
Sometimes you want your newer, younger skin to be entirely yours. No worries, there a lot of skin rejuvenation procedures that renew the skin using the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
Dermabrasion works by physically removing outer layers of skin along with dead skin, oils, and other imperfections. When the skin grows back, you’ll notice improvements in your acne scars, wrinkles, chicken pox scars, lesions and so much more.
Procedure: You will be given a numbing agent or anesthesia to help with any kind of discomfort. Then a device combined with a freezing technique will work on one small area at a time
Recovery: After 7-14 days your wounds should fully heal and after 6 weeks any residual redness should be gone.
Chemical Peels work similarly to dermabrasion, but instead, it uses chemicals to blister and peel the outer layers of skin. Chemical peels can improve skin tone, reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and signs of sun damage. There are actually a wide variety of chemical peels:
- Micropeels: perfect for mild skin conditions like hyperpigmentation.
- Dermaplaning: couple this with a light peel to create glowing skin and remove annoying peach fuzz.
- Facial with Light Chemical Peel: make sure your skin is hydrated with this combo facial and light peel.
- Acne Clearing Facial: made specially to help with acne and acne scars.
Recovery: Your skin will feel like it’s been sunburned for a few days, and the stronger the peel, the longer your recovery.
