Don’t You Deserve a Little Festive Pampering?


When the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Year starts taking its toll, treating yourself to a little festive pampering can really help you re-energize! Everyone wants to look their best at the office Christmas party, in the obligatory family photos, and perhaps even on that beach vacation scheduled for January, but the winter air, dehydrating central heating, and those late nights, rich food and glasses of champagne can quickly leave your skin looking less than vibrant.

Rejuvenate Your Skin with IPL Therapy

Consider putting a rejuvenating skin therapy on your Christmas list, such as a skin-brightening IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment that can reverse the visible signs of ageing. Or perhaps a little exfoliation using microdermabrasion techniques can help slough off those old skin cells and reveal a fresher-looking you to greet the New Year.

Smooth Out That Creased Brow with Botox

How about if you’re looking forward to festive family fun but worried about those frown lines, brow creases, or crow’s feet making you appear older and less fun-loving than you really feel? Pamper yourself with a quick and pain-free Botox treatment to iron out those creases by relaxing the muscle tension that causes deeper facial lines.

Restore Your Skin’s Youthful Bounce and Firmness with Juvederm

A consultation with a qualified and experienced dermatologist can help you decide if Botox is best for you or whether you might want to take advantage of the great range of natural fillers now available, such as Juvéderm™ VOLUMA™ and Juvéderm™ VOLBELLA™.

These are natural hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that can help restore youthful skin volume where age-related sagging is bringing you down. The injectable fillers help create the face contour you desire, restoring sunken cheeks and your chin to add back fullness lost through aging or even weight loss and genetic factors. Natural dermal fillers are also a great way to fix fine lines and restore lushness to lips.

Slim and Svelte for Christmas with Zerona Laser Therapy

If you’re wary of all those festive nibbles packing on the pounds then you might want to consider treatment with the innovative Zerona laser. This low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a safe and effective way to eliminate unwanted fat, fast and non-invasively.

Maybe you’re having trouble squeezing into that little black dress that you planned on wearing to the office party? Zerona laser treatment can see you quickly dropping two dress sizes, leaving you feeling slimmer and ready to dance, with no downtime like with invasive fat-loss procedures. Laser fat removal may offer even greater advantages when paired with Dr. Simeon’s original hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) diet so make sure to find a consultant, like Dr. Bakken, with experience using this protocol.

Stress-Busting Tips for Christmas

Of course, it’s not always possible to get through the holiday period without a little stress so take time each day to relax, whether it’s with a soothing bath, half an hour with a good book, or a gentle stroll outside, letting nature be your therapy. If you’re prone to taking on too much then make a choice now to start delegating! Pacing yourself, and knowing your comfortable limits can make Christmas more enjoyable for everyone. Make a list of everything that you need to do, prioritize and then see what’s really not essential. If you get all the way down your list then bravo! Then, and only then, should you consider putting a whole day’s work into building an elaborate gingerbread castle instead of a simple Christmas cake.

Likewise, think about whether you really need that table centre-piece, or that extra string of fairy lights, or if all your frosting need be absolutely perfect? What matters most is spending time with family and friends so consider throwing a Christmas potluck; having the kids help out with baking; and asking for a little extra assistance with household chores this year. Treating yourself kindly, and simply treating yourself to a little luxury, can make for a happier Christmas for everyone!
