Prepare for the Holidays with Dermal Fillers

It’s about to be the most wonderful time of the year — and the most chaotic. Halloween feeds straight into Thanksgiving, and we’ll be ringing in the new year before we know it. That means you probably have a lot of festivities with friends and family in the months ahead.

So you can feel your best this holiday season, you want to look your best. And getting there can be quicker and easier than you might think. That’s because Robert M. Olson, MD and the team at LH Spa & Rejuvenation offer Juvéderm®, a leading type for dermal fillers. With these cosmetic injectables, we can reverse the signs of aging and give you fuller lips, improved facial contours, and more. 

Sound good? Let’s take a closer look at this excellent way to prepare for the holiday season.

What Juvéderm can do

When you think of cosmetic injectables, you likely think of Botox®. This option works extremely well for specific wrinkles that develop because of repeated facial expressions, like forehead lines and frown lines.

But that’s not the only way your face changes over the years. As you age, you also lose volume. That’s why our team offers Juvéderm. 

With this FDA-approved line of dermal fillers, we can do a lot. Juvéderm replaces volume where you need it to smooth lines and restore your youthful contours. In fact, we can even use this option to address issues that have plagued you for your entire life, like thin lips, hollow cheeks, or sunken scars. 

Fitting dermal fillers into your holiday plans 

One of the best parts of Juvéderm is its convenience. Once we have your initial consultation and agree on the right placement and level of fillers for your cosmetic goals, the actual injection process takes just minutes.

You don’t have to worry about any downtime, either. Many people get their dermal fillers and head straight to the next activity on their agenda. You’ll be able to enjoy your results right away. 

That said, you should know that some people experience some bruising at the injection site. So you don’t have to worry about extra concealer this holiday season, we recommend scheduling your appointment at least a few days before any big event.

Fortunately, the results from dermal fillers can last six months or longer. That means that if you schedule your dermal filler visit now, you’ll be able to look your best well into the new year. 

To check this holiday-season prep off your list, call LH Spa & Rejuvenation at either of our offices in Livingston or Madison, New Jersey.
