With the party season fast approaching, now is a great time to consider the aesthetic treatments you want. But how far in advance will different treatments need to start to achieve the maximum visual results by the time of your event? Well, this is our guide to the most effective treatment timeline for some of the most popular aesthetic treatments.
3 months to 6 weeks before the event
In the 3 months to the 6 weeks before your event there are a number of aesthetic treatments that you could consider, which will have great results in time for the event. These treatments include:
Laser hair removal – IPL hair removal uses Intense Pulsed Light to target the hair follicles within the skin, causing heat damage and disrupting the growth of hair. This is a treatment that needs to be repeated to target hair growth at different points of the cycle. Results can usually be seen after one or two months, which can be perfect for the party season, but for permanent hair removal you will likely need a course of treatments over several months.
Fat dissolving injections – here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic we provide DesoFace and DesoBody fat dissolving injections. These are targeted injections to remove stubborn pockets of fat and can remove fat cells completely. It will usually take around 8 weeks to see the results, as it takes time for the body to remove the fat cells and adjust, and several treatments may be necessary for full results.
1 month before the event
With a month before your event there are some aesthetic treatments that can be beneficial including:
Dermal fillers – dermal fillers, especially lip, cheek and jaw fillers are very popular at this time of the year. These are injections of hyaluronic acid into the skin tissue which will bind with and store moisture increasing the volume of the skin while also promoting the natural production of collagen, to enhance the shape and structure of the face. It typically takes about 4 weeks for the results of the dermal filler to settle, so making sure there is a month before your event can be important. However, results can be seen earlier than this with the natural swelling that will occur.
Anti wrinkles injections – anti wrinkles injections can help to reduce the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles and help your skin to look smoother and younger over the party season.
Chemical peel – a chemical peel involves applying a slightly acidic substance to the face to remove the outer layers of dead skin and promote thorough skin rejuvenation. This can help to nourish and hydrate skin and results can typically be seen after 1 to 2 weeks.
1 week before the event
With just a week to go before the event you could consider a number of smaller aesthetic treatments to give your skin a boost. These include:
Dermaplaning – by using a surgical scalpel to remove dead skin and dry skin cells on the outer most layer of skin, dermaplaning can help to refresh your skin and allow you to glow. This also makes your skin more able to absorb topical treatments like moisturizer and hydrating tonics. As a result, opting for this treatment 1 week before your event can ensure healthy, radiant skin.
illumiFacial® – with instant results the illumiFacial® is one of the most popular options for brightening and hydrating facial skin. This combines a chemical peel with IPL treatment and can transform your skin in time for your event.
