With the summer and festive seasons rapidly approaching, Dr Claire offers advice on how to time when you should have your procedures for maximal impact at your special events.
Many patients wait until right before events and holidays to come in to have anti-aging and beautification procedures performed. This is a huge mistake.
Certain aesthetic procedures that would result in a refreshed appearance can be performed close to an event, such as light chemical peels, or RF Cinderella facials.
For the rest of your Aesthetics procedures, remember:
• Your procedures may take several sessions, over a few weeks or even a few months, for optimum results.
• Your procedures may have settling time. Botox may take up to 10 days to take full effect. Fillers often look their best 2-6 weeks post procedure.
• Procedures, once settled, may require a top-up to perfect your new look
• You may have temporary inflammation, bruising, or swelling. Not cool the night before the holiday starts.
For most patients, and for big or special events and occasions, I advise that we stop with any aggressive treatments 2-4 weeks before the date.
Start to prepare for the end of the year now – don’t wait!
