Blepharoplasty: Plan 1 Month Ahead

The delicate, thin skin of the upper eyelid can slowly sag with age, resulting in eyes that look tired, uninterested, and even unhealthy. A blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, is a surgical procedure designed to eliminate this lax tissue, creating a brighter, more awake look to the appearance. The blepharoplasty can also address the loose fat pads that pull downward both above and below the eye, eliminating dark circles and under eye “bags”. The benefits of an eyelid lift can be seen almost immediately. Bruising and swelling are generally mild, but patients should give themselves from two to four weeks for healing.

Botox: Plan 3-4 Weeks Ahead

Botulinum Toxin Type A, also known as Botox, temporarily weakens muscles, relaxing wrinkles. Botox targets dynamic facial lines, or those caused by repetitive expressions, including Crows’ Feet, forehead creases, and frown lines. As the muscles release, the face will look younger and more refreshed. The in-office treatment takes only a few minutes and requires no downtime. While the results from Botox are not immediate, they will last for up to three months. In about two weeks, early benefits of Botox can be seen. For the best results, schedule your Botox session three to four weeks before a party or celebration

Dermal Fillers: Plan A Few Days Ahead

The dermal filler family includes injectibles like Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Voluma. Created from collagen-renewing substances such as Hyaluronic Acid, fillers plump wrinkles, smooth acne scars, lift tissues, and restore volume under the eyes or across the cheeks. The results from fillers can be seen immediately after administration and will last from six to twelve months. Do not wait till the last minute to plan on a dermal filler session, however, since mild bruising and swelling may occur after treatment.
