It is already that time of the year again – holiday party season! So dust off your sparkly holiday dress, pull out your ugly Christmas sweater, and glam up your beauty routine. To help you look your best, Dr. Guy Massry, a Beverly Hills oculoplastic surgeon, recommends Botox and/or filler treatments to refresh your facial appearance.
Botox is a fantastic non-surgical treatment that erases wrinkles on your forehead, 11-lines, and crow’s feet. The treatment temporarily prevents the wrinkles from forming and therefore your skin appears softer and smoother. When performing Botox injections, Dr. Massry’s goal is not to “freeze” your face, but to soften it while still allowing for muscle movements that display your expressions. Additionally, Dr. Massry can strategically place the Botox injections to give you a “Botox Browlift.” Botox takes 7 – 14 days to take full effect, so make sure you book your treatment at least a week and a half before your holiday party!
Facial fillers are a fantastic way to instantly restore volume to the face. A voluminous face with contours is a mark of youth and beauty. Unfortunately, as we age, we lose our youthful volume. When Dr. Massry examines his patients, he determines which areas of the face have lost volume and uses fillers such as Juvederm, Belotero, and Restylane to restore volume. The most common areas that Dr. Massry treats with fillers include, the mid-face, under eye area, and temples.
- Mid-Face – When the mid-face (cheeks) loses volume, the skin begins to droop and sag and the face appears older. Using an injectable filler, such as Restylane Lyft, Dr. Massry is able to lift and augment cheek volume to restore a more youthful appearance.
- Under Eyes – The stress of the holidays often times reveals itself in the form of unwanted dark circles under the eyes. If you are beginning to notice you look more tired than usual or if your under eye area has been bothering you for a while, now is the perfect time to try Restylane, Restylane Silk or Belotero under the eyes! The treatment will make your dark circle disappear instantly and you will look like you are the most well-rested person in the room.
- Temples – Many people don’t realize it, but a common area that we lose volume is in the temples. Hollow temples create an unflattering shadow effect that darkens the face and eyes. Filling in hollow temples with Juvederm provides stunning results!
Dr. Massry recommends you schedule all filler treatments 7 to 10 days before your holiday party so if you experience any bruising or swelling, it has enough time to dissipate.
