The holiday season is right around the corner: That means time to start making your list, checking it twice, and making sure your skincare products and treatments are extra nice. Get ahead of the gift-giving game with some AlDa staff favorites.
From injectables and in-office treatments to at-home skincare, and whether you’re treating yourself or someone else, these picks are sure to land you a spot on the “nice” list!
Voluma – Juvederm
A (nearly) unanimous must-have, filler is definitely having an in-vogue moment for a reason!
Treat yourself or a loved one to an instant confidence boost and facelift that’s better than the best contouring palette. Anastasia Beverly Hills has nothing on some reliable hyaluronic acid.
Our very own nurse injector, and Juvederm lover, Alyssa D’arcy says it best, “It’s my workhorse! It delivers a natural yet gorgeous lift in the cheeks and lower face.”
Another sure-fire way to land you on the nice list? HydraFacial. One of the best treatments you can treat yourself (or a loved one to), it will have your skin shining bright in just thirty minutes by cleansing, exfoliating, and nourishing the skin.
Still, do yourself a favor and kick it up a notch with a custom HydraFacial that includes dermaplane as well to really penetrate the skin and soak up all the good stuff.
“There’s nothing better than getting that extra exfoliation while brightening the skin all at the same time. My skin feels like butter” explains our Master Esthetician Alyssa Breault.
(The addition of dermaplaning means an exfoliating upgrade to the traditional treatment that eliminates clogged pores and reduces signs of aging with frequent procedures.)
You’ve likely heard of Botox, but here’s our quick refresher on how it works: the active ingredient Botulinum toxin decreases muscle activity by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. With the injected muscle unable to contract, the treated wrinkles relax and soften for up to six months making it the gift that keeps on giving… literally.
Treat your younger sibling and get them hooked early. Our NP Nurse Nally touts the benefits with ease, “Such a simple and easy way to give patients a refreshed and youthful appearance by reducing fine lines and wrinkles [and it’s the best] way to prevent aging in the younger population.”
Forget the lame stocking stuffer, give them something they’ll really be thankful for.
Skin Medica – TNS Advanced Growth Factor Serum
Not every gift needs to be an experience. Sometimes a product or treatment you can do at home is perfect too.
Skin Medica’s serum is one of those cases — simply ask our co-owner and Master Licensed Esthetician Dana Broslovskey: “This powerhouse product helps to keep my skin looking healthy and youthful.”
Trust us, if you aren’t envious of her skin, it’s only because you haven’t seen it.
For the savvy family member that already gets regular Botox? Help them level up with the perfect companion.
The added growth factors and milk proteins in this product make application smooth and luxurious: AKA it’ll feel like you just finished up at the spa every single night. As Nurse Nally puts it, “TNS is the hero product for reducing fine lines and wrinkles and is a great addition to any injectable for optimal results!”
