Four Ways to Get Ready for Holiday Photos
By Michael A. Devlin, MD on November 30, 2015
While it’s fun to look back over photos from previous years, it can also be a reminder of changes we don’t always enjoy seeing. If the thought of family photos makes you cringe, you might want to think about why.
It’s a safe bet that you will be posing for a few or may a hundred different pictures at parties, dinners or other festive occasions. Your friends, family members and even your coworkers will be asking you to say “cheese!” all season long.
So what can you do to look your very best for your holiday photos?
- Botox/ Dysport and fillers. Well-loved because they are non-invasive, relatively painless, affordable and provide natural-looking results, Botox, Dyport and fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane Lift are Dr. Devlin’s favorite all year long when his patients want a quick beauty boost with no downtime. Botox minimizes fine lines in the brow and forehead area as well as crow’s feet. When we age, we lose volume in our cheeks. Restylane and Juvederm can fill out hollowed spots in the cheeks, tear troughs, and lip area. Combing these procedures can erase years and provide a more youthful appearance.
- Chemical or Laser Peel. If you would like dramatic results but are not yet ready for a surgical face lift, you might want to consider a chemical peel or laser peel. Dr. Michael Devlin can target both the surface of the skin as well as underlying tissue to smooth texture and minimize or erase wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots and other signs of aging, and tighten the skin. These treatments can be done in under an hour with no scars and less than a week of recovery time. Everyone will wonder how you got your holiday glow!
- Facelift Surgery. For the most long lasting results that can help you regain some of your lost youth, Facelift surgery may be the answer for you. Dr. Devlin can take away up to ten years of wrinkles and sagging skin, which will help you “turn back the clock”. During a facelift, Dr. Devlin will tighten the tissue of the face, remove excess skin and reposition it for a firmer, smoother appearance. With over 20 years of facial surgery experience, Dr. Devlin provides you with natural looking results and not an “overdone” appearance.
- Eyelid Lift and Brow Lift. An eyelid lift (also known as Blepharoplasty) or brow lift can dramatically transform a face that is showing signs of aging through sagging skin and loss of elasticity around the forehead and eyes. Deep lines etched into the forehead can be hard to correct with other treatments such as Botox and Dysport. Dr. Michael Devlin frequently performs a brow lift in conjunction with an eyelid lift to achieve the most youthful, refreshed look. The eyes are typically your best feature. Why not accentuate them the best you can?
Growing older is a natural process, but no one wants it documented in annual holiday photos for the world to see. Instead, you could make memories that will bring a smile to your face for years to come when you look in your holiday photo album.
