Top Treatments for Getting Holiday Ready New Canaan, CT

November 1, 2023

A key element to looking and feeling your best before the holidays is timing your treatments accordingly. We would suggest allotting yourself at least four to six weeks in advance to begin treatments so you can start seeing results as soon as possible. This makes November an ideal month to get the ball rolling on your aesthetic goals.

It’s the most wonderful time of year to pamper yourself, so let’s get into our top treatments for holiday-ready radiance:

Advanced Skin Rejuvenation

BBL® HERO™ photofacial is a fast-acting treatment option to revitalize your skin from head to toe. This includes improving the look of age spots, sunspots, freckles, redness and rosacea, uneven skin tone, dullness, acne, small veins and broken capillaries and with repeated treatments, lines, wrinkles and skin laxity. BBL HERO works quickly, treating the face and larger areas of the body within minutes with no social downtime. As the BBL HERO device delivers high-energy broadband light to break up pigmentation in the skin without harming its surface, it also stimulates collagen production. Within a week or two, you can expect to see optimal results of your refreshed, glowing skin which will continue to build as new collagen is generated.

Halo® laser skin resurfacing can take an aging complexion and restore it to its former youthful glory, helping you achieve long-lasting complexion improvements for a healthy glow. Halo works by combining ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to treat the skin at multiple levels for intense renewal with shorter downtime than similar lasers. Along with increased collagen production, Halo can help improve concerns of hyperpigmentation, large pore size, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin texture, dullness and more. As your treated skin heals and flakes off in the following days to a week, your new radiant skin will be revealed with continued improvements over the next few weeks and months. Best of all, with just one to two treatments, your Halo glow can last for years!


Botox® makes it easy to refresh your appearance and boost your confidence in only a few short minutes. This tried-and-true neurotoxin injectable temporarily relaxes wrinkle-rousing muscles so the skin above can gradually smooth out, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Popular treatment areas include crow’s feet that radiate from the eyes, horizontal forehead lines and vertical frown lines between the eyebrows. As your results fully settle in the days to weeks following treatment, you can enjoy your wrinkle-free radiance for up to four months.

Dermal fillers are ideal for anyone looking to achieve immediate improvements to the volume, softness or smoothness of their skin. Formulated as a clear, ultra-smooth hyaluronic acid (HA) gel, fillers add fullness where injected, which can be to multiple areas of the face. This is why we’re proud to offer the full collection of Juvéderm® HA fillers to address an array of needs, including Voluma® XC for volume loss and augmentation of the chin, Vollure® XC for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and Ultra XC for lip augmentation. The beauty of fillers is that they replenish volume and fill in wrinkles and folds instantly with optimal results appearing in the following weeks. Not to mention these benefits can last anywhere from six months to a year or longer, depending on your specific filler.
