Last Minute Spa Treatments for All Your Holiday Events

We all want to look our best during the holidays—after all, more social events occur in December and January than at any other time of the year. Unfortunately, that same hustle and bustle make taking time out to pamper ourselves next to impossible. Few people can fit cosmetic surgery before the holidays, and even taking a full day out to visit the spa can be challenging. That’s why we offer several “lunchtime procedures” here at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg. These non-surgical treatments can make a big difference in how you look, without impacting your busy schedule.

4 Quick and Easy Holiday Spa Treatments

1. Vampire Facials and Facelifts

If you’re looking for a refreshing and rejuvenating facial treatment before the holidays, vampire facial procedures may be right for you. While the name seems intimidating, these treatments utilize PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to encourage cell turnover and help the skin look renewed and youthful. Vampire facials utilize PRP in addition to microneedling, which allows for deep penetration of the PRP serum and improved collagen production by creating microscopic perforations that heal quickly. If you choose a vampire facelift, you can benefit from the plumping and lifting effect of a variety of dermal fillers with the use of PRP to improve the skin’s tone and texture. The result is vibrant skin that no longer looks hollow or drooping. Your procedure is customized to address specific areas of concern.

The vampire facelift does not require downtime for recovery. While the skin may appear slightly red after a vampire facial treatment, any residual side effects will quickly dissipate so you can enjoy the holiday season looking your best.

2. The Fraxel Laser

During Fraxel laser treatment, our doctors use a specialized medical laser to abrade the top layers of the skin gently. This removes damaged and highly pigmented skin cells while speeding up the rate of cellular renewal and boosting collagen production. Fraxel laser treatment is, therefore, a great way to get rid of fine lines, age spots, acne and acne scars. It will also make your skin firmer, smoother, and younger-looking throughout a few treatments.

Unlike a chemical peel, laser skin rejuvenation won’t cause your skin to peel or flake. You’ll be able to resume all your normal activities on the same day you have this procedure, making it an ideal last-minute spa treatment.

3. BOTOX®

Though most people have heard of BOTOX®, few realize how no-fuss this injectable treatment really is: Most BOTOX® appointments take just 15 minutes to complete, you won’t have to rest afterward, and this compound rarely causes any side effects. At the same time, BOTOX® is powerful enough to erase forehead lines and crow’s feet.

4. Paraffin Wax Treatment

One of the first things most of us notice when the weather turns cold is painfully cracked, dry skin on our hands and feet. At Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg, we use paraffin wax submersion to treat this dryness while soothing raw skin effectively. Paraffin wax is a powerful emollient – it coats the skin and traps moisture, so it doesn’t evaporate. Paraffin wax treatment is also a great way to heal damaged cuticles, ease joint pain, and increase circulation.

The holidays will be here soon, so if you’re interested in having a few last-minute spa treatments, you should contact us to arrange a consultation. We’ll help you pick the best low-maintenance treatments to meet your needs.

The Perfect Chemical Peel for Mom

Does your mom dream of smoother, younger looking skin? A chemical peel could help her dreams to come true. Our Master Esthetician, Priya, is highly experienced using several top chemical peels. She can help your mom choose the right peel for her skin. We offer the Obagi Radiance Peel, and a gentle AHA peel. The Physicians offer the Obagi Blue Peel, and a deeper Phenol peel.

Chemical peels slough off the outermost layers of skin. This boosts your body’s healing response and smoothes out uneven skin. This treatment can improve the appearance of sun damage, fight acne, smooth rough skin, fade lines and wrinkles, and more.
