It’s December and the countdown to Christmas is officially on. The festive rush has begun, and clients are on the search for minimal-downtime treatments in time for their seasonal celebrations. With many clients leaving their pamper regimes until the last-minute, they’re in search of tweakments that offer subtle rejuvenation without the extended downtime.
Here’s our top treatments for those last-minute clients.
When it comes to skin treatments, many clients assume that more is more and that the answer to a clear complexion is to layer one ointment on top of the other in a multiple-step routine. However, excessive skincare efforts such as lengthy 7-step routines can often leave behind a slew of skin concerns such as a compromised skin barrier. Additionally, topical skincare routines, alongside being lengthy, don’t give immediate, long-lasting results. They may leave a temporary glow on the skin but require constant top-ups to achieve a rejuvenated look. Skin boosters are a go-to option for long-lasting, luminous-looking skin with minimal to no downtime. Perfect for clients searching for a simple solution for a brighter complexion, skin boosters offer a minimalistic approach to skincare within a single treatment.

Most dermal filler treatments are perfect for party-season prep; after a treatment, patients can return to their daily activities almost immediately. With dermal filler treatments, there are few restrictions and minimal downtime post-treatment. Although recovery time can vary from patient to patient, there are some minor side effects that patients should be aware of such as slight bruising, redness, and tenderness at the injection site. Any discomfort should only last a few days at most and can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain relief if necessary. With dermal fillers, clients can expect to see immediate results with the longevity of results depending entirely on the product used, the volume injected, and which area has been treated.
One of the most popular non-surgical treatments is the liquid rhinoplasty, more commonly referred to as the non-surgical rhinoplasty/nose job. Non-surgical rhinoplasties are achieved by carefully injecting dermal filler into the nose to help improve the appearance of various concerns such as a mildly crooked nose, a dropping nose tip, a bump on the bridge of the nose or other age-related changes. The treatment involves altering or reshaping the nose to help refine a clients’ appearance or to help achieve their dream side-profile, without undergoing invasive surgery.

For non-surgical rhinoplasty, we recommend REVOLAX Sub Q to help you achieve optimal results. Sub-Q’s viscous consistency and ability to mould the features make it ideal for use in non-surgical rhinoplasty. The nose requires a thicker substance to create structure and REVOLAX Sub-Q can create the perfect side profile, thanks to its thick gel consistency. The filler is formulated with numbing agent lidocaine to help ease patient discomfort, helping to reduce bruising, and swelling. It is also available in a non-lidocaine formulation, suitable for those with allergies.

Already a routinely treatment for many clients, anti-wrinkle injections are used to treat a host of both medical and cosmetic concerns and has shown effectiveness in the prevention of fine. These injectables are also beneficial for smoothing creases in the face for a fresher appearance; static lines can often make the face appear fatigued.
When anti-wrinkle treatments are injected, they work to block the signal sent from your nerves to your muscles. Without this signal, the muscle cannot contract, thus resulting in the visible improvement of fine lines and wrinkles. Preventing the targeted muscles from contracting essentially helps to diminish wrinkles caused when frowning or showing expression. Moreover, anti-wrinkle injections can also be used as a preventative measure; helping to pause the formation of future lines.
Anti-wrinkle treatments take very little time and have virtually no downtime with most clients returning to their daily routines immediately. Although there may be a few small and minor bumps where the skin has been injected, these usually subside within an hour and bruising is minimal. The effects of anti-wrinkle treatments can be seen as early as 3-4 days however, full effects can be seen between 10-14 days after treatment depending on a host of factors. Although it is recommended for clients to have their anti-wrinkle injections at least 2-3 weeks before any events, they are still an effective treatment for a youthful look, nevertheless.
