Dr. Bonakdar Reviews 3 Must Have Treatments to Get Holiday Ready

COSMETIC DERMATOLOGY AND SKIN CARE for NEWPORT BEACH, CORONA DEL MAR & ORANGE COUNTY, CA

With Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukah just around the corner, it’s not too early to start getting Holiday ready. My list of must have treatments is short but effective and will have you enjoying your new found self-confidence and perfect holiday photos this year.

Must Have #1- $$$- Full Facial restoration with fillers and Neurotoxins is by far the best bang for your buck to get holiday ready.  This can be accomplished in one to three short appointments with the results of Botox or Dysport lasting 12-16 weeks and the results of the filler lasting 6 months to 5 years depending on the filler type used.

Every year we lose a teaspoon of soft tissue from our face. That is equivalent to 5 syringes of fillers! Unless this gradual volume deficit is replaced with fillers, we start to look tired and old.

The face is divided into the upper, middle and lower sections. To create the most harmony and balance, all these three section must be addressed. During the first appointment I treat the overactive facial muscles with Botox or Dysport. I like starting filler correction in the midface.  Re-establishing the cheek volume and lifting the cheek up, automatically improves the lower lid as well as the smile lines and jowl area. The next area I like to work on is around the mouth and jowls.  Generally, I wait until after Botox or Dysport has taken effect on the upper face muscles to see if any fine tuning is needed with fillers.

I preference is to use fillers that give the longest lasting results such as Artefill, Sculptra and Voluma. But with six fillers at my disposal, ultimately I customize what I use based on my client’s needs.

Must Have #2- $$- Start on a clinical skincare program to protect your investment of fillers and toxins. All you need an easy 4 step routine in the morning and the evening with multitasking products that contain Vitamin A, C, E, and Growth factors. We start with a Visia computerized analysis of your skin and choose products that will complement and address your skin’s needs.

Must Have #3- $- Forget eyelash extensions as eventually they damage your lashes and leave them sparse and broken. Start Latisse- miracle eyelash growth drops now and you will have thicker, longer and fuller lashes in time for the holidays.
