The holiday season is around the corner, and for many, it's a time of celebration and reuniting with loved ones and colleagues at small gatherings or large functions. As invitations to holiday parties and gatherings start to fill your calendar, you may be considering how you can look and feel your absolute best this season.

Whether you have numerous events to attend or one significant gathering that holds special importance, Botox and dermal fillers, often referred to as injectables, can be your secret to achieve a refreshed and youthful appearance just in time for the festivities. Planning these treatments well in advance allows you to enjoy the benefits just in time for the holiday season.


Popular and widely used injectable Botox can target and relax the facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles and fine lines. As part of the neuromodulator group of injectables, Botox is a trusted and proven treatment used to rejuvenate your appearance with a simple office visit and virtually no downtime. Boost your confidence for every upcoming event with a more refined, youthful, appealing look.

What can Botox do for me?

Botox can treat a variety of concerns in the face, including reducing the appearance of forehead lines, glabellar lines or frown lines, and crow's feet. These dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive facial movement, and Botox works by preventing tiny muscles in the face from moving and creating these wrinkles. If those persistent lines on your forehead, between your eyebrows, or at the corners of your eyes have been bothering you, Botox can effectively smooth them out, giving you a more youthful, relaxed, and vibrant look.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers come in various brands and formulations, each tailored to address specific concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. These versatile injectables include:

  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers: Juvéderm, Restylane, and the innovative RHA Collection
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) Fillers: Radiesse
  • Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) Fillers: Sculptra
  • Polymethyl-Methacrylate (PMMA) Fillers: Bellafill

What can Dermal Fillers do for me?

Dermal fillers provide a wide variety of rejuvenating effects and can make you look and feel younger and more refreshed, so you can make a statement at the Thanksgiving table, the office banquet, or at midnight on New Year's Eve. This treatment works to restore volume, smooth lines and wrinkles, enhance facial contours, and even provide hydration and improve skin texture.

Over time, the natural loss of volume in your cheeks and lips can lead to a more tired or aged appearance. Dermal fillers can restore this lost volume, giving your face a youthful fullness. Even deep lines and creases, like nasolabial folds and marionette lines, can be effectively smoothed out with dermal fillers.

This treatment can also be strategically used to enhance your facial contours, whether you want more defined cheekbones or a more pronounced jawline. In addition, many dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which can hydrate and revitalize your skin, leaving it with a healthy and radiant glow.

When is the best time to book a Botox or Dermal Filler treatment before the holidays?

As you plan your pre-holiday beauty regimen, it's crucial to consider the recovery timeline for both Botox and dermal fillers. While the treatments themselves are relatively quick, the results may take some time to fully appear. Botox gradually relaxes the targeted muscles and typically takes around two weeks to fully settle and reveal its optimal outcomes.

Dermal fillers need time to integrate with your tissues and provide their plumping and smoothing effects and are best scheduled at least three weeks before any major holiday events.

Some patients may experience minor swelling or bruising for a few days after these treatments, so it's important to plan for that possibility when scheduling your injectable appointment. This careful timing will ensure that the healing process is finished and optimal results are visible when it's time to celebrate.
