The holidays are just around the corner, and we all want to look our best for parties, family dinners, and drinks with faraway friends we don’t see nearly enough. Though it may seem like the holidays will be here before you know it, there is still time to book some last-minute spa treatments that will help you look and feel your best no matter where your celebration takes you! The professional staff at Vernon Hills-based Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa offers a number of treatments that are non-invasive, involve little to no recovery, and will ensure you wow everyone you see this Thanksgiving holiday. Here are just a few of the services offered that can be performed before the holiday season hits full steam.
You’ve probably spent many holidays smiling and laughing with friends and family members. While you’d never want to give up those moments, you might want to give up the subsequent expression lines that are the result. With injectables such as BOTOX®, Dysport, and Xeomin®, you can! These anti-aging procedures involve a simple injection into the muscles that are responsible for expressions such as smiling and frowning. The injections prevent the muscles from contracting, resulting in a smoother appearance and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and forehead. Though BOTOX® has been blamed for lending patients a ‘frozen’ look, new techniques have made these injectables more effective and natural-looking.
Dermal fillers are an excellent choice if you want to smooth out wrinkles or scars or enhance your lips with virtually no downtime. These injectable substances can plump the skin and lend you a more youthful, glowing look that will impress all those you encounter. Dermal fillers are long-lasting and safe as they are eventually absorbed by your body with no lingering residue. The staff at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa offers a number of different dermal fillers including Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Sculptra®, and Belotero Balance, each with slightly different chemical makeups and results. During your consultation, the best dermal filler will be chosen to provide you with your desired outcome.
Sculpting and Tightening Treatments
Every holiday season is a joy, but each year that passes also has an effect on your skin tone and elasticity. If you want to fight the signs of aging this holiday season, you might be interested in a sculpting or tightening treatment on either your face or your body—or both! We offer a number of different treatments that can target excess fat deposits, sagging skin, or loss of volume that make you look older and less vibrant. Here are just a few of our many treatments:
Oh, the dreaded double chin! Whether you’ve developed new fat deposits under the chin this year or you’ve been dealing with them your entire life, now is the time to do something about it. Kybella® is a revolutionary new treatment that, when injected into the chin area, dissolves unwanted fat and makes for a more streamlined, youthful appearance. Kybella® is safe, virtually painless, and has been impressing patients since it was first introduced.
Want to look especially lovely in your holiday dress this year? Consider a CoolSculpting treatment to permanently remove stubborn fat. This procedure involves freezing fat off in hour-long treatment sessions and provides amazing results with no downtime or invasive surgery. If you have a trouble area such as love handles, bra bulge, or upper arm fat, CoolSculpting can create outstanding results.
The holidays are brighter when you feel good about your appearance. It’s not too late to book a spa treatment before the holidays hit so you can wow the whole family. If you’re interested in one of these or another treatment to boost your holiday spirit, contact the professional staff at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa for a consultation.
