How to Make an Entrance at Your Holiday Parties

by Marria Pooya

It’s the season of giving and thanksgiving and, most importantly, of holiday parties. Make an entrance at all of your events this season when you rev up your look with the age-reversing effects of injectables and fillers. Count on injectables like BOTOX and dermal fillers to provide easy solutions to many signs of aging, such as wrinkles, crinkles and folds, as well as that overall “tired look,” which means you’re sure to bring the “wow” to any holiday party.

“Our patients are amazed by the quick and simple results from injections, which can smooth away lines and fill wrinkles to impart a more youthful look,” said Amanda Pucci, aesthetic nurse practitioner at the Greenwich Medical Spa in Westport. “The best part is that it only takes a 30- to 60-minute office visit to take years off of the face.”

Beginning with BOTOX, the world’s most popular non-surgical cosmetic medical treatment, lines on the forehead and between the eyes, not to mention those crow’s feet, can be quickly diminished. BOTOX works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles on the upper face. With effects that last up to three or four months, pre-holiday BOTOX injections will take you all the way through that New Year’s Eve party.

Dermal fillers are used to literally fill lines, and today, most of these have been formulated to target specific areas. With the Juvéderm family of fillers, which includes Ultra Plus XC, Volbella, Voluma and Vollure, aesthetic professionals can improve lines around the mouth and marionette lines and add subtle volume to the lips. Voluma restores volume to the cheek area, lifting the face and reducing the appearance of jowls. These long-lasting fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is naturally present in the body and works as an internal moisturizer. Expert injectors will know which fillers are best suited to meet your needs.

“Many women – and men – are hesitant to try injectables and fillers because they are afraid the results will look unnatural,” said Shilpa Desai, physician assistant at the Greenwich Medical Spa. “But when used by experts with significant experience and a light hand, these treatments provide natural-looking results that do not make you feel like someone else. You just appear as a younger version of yourself.”

Plan ahead for your holiday parties and events by getting your wow factor started now with a little help from today’s effective injectable treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can EMSCULPT NEO do for me?

EMSCULPT NEO is an amazing noninvasive body sculpting treatment. It’s perfect for patients who are looking to get summer body ready! With this state-of-the-art, two-in-one technology, you build muscle and burn fat at the same time! This treatment provides a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 25% growth in muscle on the treated area after a recommended number of treatments.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

While you lie down and relax, EMSCULPT NEO sends high-intensity energies deep below your skin, making your muscles contract in a big way that is like doing thousands of crunches or squats in a few minutes. While your muscles are contracting, the energy from the applicator simultaneously sends warmth to your fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction. So you build real muscle from the contractions while destroying fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by your body.

How many EMCULPT NEO treatments will I need?

The recommended treatment plan is 4-6 treatments, one week apart. Depending on the patient, you may see improvement in your muscle tone, core strength and posture within a few weeks. And you’ll see fat reduction continue for about 12 weeks after your last treatment.

Are there any patients for whom you do not recommend EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is great because it has been shown to be safe and approved for all body and skin types. Contraindications include hernia, recent surgery, and pregnancy, so if a patient has any of these conditions, they should wait until they don’t to get EMSCULPT NEO.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO?

CoolSculpting is a well-known treatment that is excellent for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas. EMSCULPT NEO also reduces fat, but it has the benefit of building muscle, which is what its predecessor EMSCULPT was made to do.

Which treatment you choose depends on what your body needs and your personal goals. If you have great muscle tone and only need to get rid of some extra fat in a specific area like your abdomen or below your chin, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. But if you have loss of muscle tone and need more of a lift or tightening to a certain area like your abs or butt, EMSCULPT NEO is your two-in-one solution.

What is your favorite thing about EMSCULPT NEO?

Not only is this treatment super convenient with one treatment lasting only 30 minutes, but there is also no downtime! Patients can go about their day as they normally would immediately after their visit.
