The holidays — that period from Thanksgiving through the New Year — is a magical time of year, filled with friends and family. But it can also be hectic and stressful with too much travel, too many parties, too little sleep and too many “To Do” lists. As women, most of us already feel pulled in a million different directions at the best of times, but during this time of the year it can get even more overwhelming.
This year, in the midst of the pre-holiday craziness, remember to take care of yourself. Do try to get enough sleep, make time for some physical activity (other than shopping for Christmas presents) and make sure to drink a lot of water to combat the stress, the salted food and the alcohol. Why not even go so far as to allow yourself to indulge in some of our quick and easy clinic services? They will leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on the holidays and at the same time, they will give your skin a more refreshed and glowing appearance leaving everyone around you wondering…how does she keep it all together and look so refreshed?
In my Ottawa clinic, I offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures that can quickly and easily make you feel rejuvenated, revived and refreshed just in time for that holiday onslaught. Most of these procedures take less than one hour of your time, making them a perfect fit for your busy schedule. Any one of the following would be good options:
TNS Anti-Aging Facial: Our Most Luxurious Facial. A hydrating facial treatment using the potent age-fighting technology of TNS growth factors to moisturize, nourish and re-energize dry, aging and sun damaged skin. Exfoliating microdermabrasion included. Also includes a head, neck, shoulder, scalp, hand and foot massage. Heavenly!
Microdermabrasion: A safe, superficial skin treatment by which a gentle exfoliation is performed by a diamond tip passing over the skin’s surface. This process allows the exfoliation of dead skin cells. Quick and easy, this is the perfect procedure to receive just before any event. The end result is smooth, glowing and radiant skin.
Chemical Skin Peels: An easy way to turn back the clock. These treatments take about 20 minutes and are very comfortable. You will feel nothing more than a slight tingling sensation. Chemical peels will leave your skin looking radiant and revitalized.
Botox Cosmetic: Ideal for combating fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Botox offers results within 10 days and will make you look as if you’ve slept like a baby. You can say goodbye to those worry lines!
Fillers: Great for softening deeper lines around the mouth, for example, the folds outside of the nose or to plump one’s lips. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm are also the gold standard for restoring volume to the mid-face and can give you back the cheeks you once had. Personally, I love performing cheek treatments on my clients because I find that it is often what gives them back the most youthful facial curves. The trick is to do it tastefully so it looks natural and refined.
Laser Genesis: This is the perfect pre-holiday treat to give yourself. Not only because the Laser Genesis’ works to reduce redness, pores and fine lines leaving the skin with an overall improved complexion, but also because, in my opinion, a Laser Genesis treatment is actually pleasant, very relaxing and soothing to receive.
There are plenty of options to treat yourself at TosoniMD. It may be cliché to say so, but it does not mean that it is any less true: Indulge a little, you’re worth it!
