How to Get Your Skin Christmas Card Ready
If screaming kids, matching outfits, and a bunch of fits are a part of your Christmas card then you are not alone. It’s safe to say that a messy Christmas card photo shoot is everyone’s normal. Even though we at Associated Plastic Surgeons may not be able to convince your kids that they need to behave, we can ensure that you are looking your best. From fighting acne to fine lines and wrinkles, we have a few fast solutions that will help you get the picture-perfect worthy complexion that you want.
If you have acne scars that you are really concerned about then you may want to consider getting some chemical peels before your photo shoot. Depending on the type of chemical peel that we do, however, your skin may be red for several days afterward which means that you will have to plan accordingly. During your initial chemical peel consultation, we will go over what you can expect as far as healing time.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
A photo says a thousand words which means that your fine lines and wrinkles can’t behind that lens. To help you get a more youthful appearance, we can use both fillers and Botox to help you get a smoother looking appearance. During your consultation, your doctor will discuss what injections they think will help you give the best results. The great thing about fillers is that they work almost immediately. Botox takes about seven full days to show full results but many patients start to see visible results in just five days.
You want to send your Christmas or holiday card out feeling confident about your appearance. If you want to learn a little bit more about how you can get a better-looking complexion, schedule a consultation with us at our Huntington office and contact us at (631) 423-1000.

The Scoop: At-Home Vs. Professional Microdermabrasion
It can be hard not to get sucked into buying products that claim to do things like “Make a professional omelette in under 10 seconds” or “Get rid of all of your wrinkles in one minute.” However, with a lot of these products that make these big claims, they simply can’t deliver the results that they say they will. With things like at-home microdermabrasion kits, it’s nice to know if you are getting ripped off or if you actually can get the healthier skin from the comfort of your home. This article will discuss the differences between at-home microdermabrasion and professional treatments. Read on to learn more.
At-Home Microdermabrasion Kits
These microdermabrasion kits have many benefits including the ability to do them whenever you want and wherever you want without having to spend as much money. Typically, at-home microdermabrasion kits come with a foam and cleanser rather than an entire machine. Filled with the same crystals as a professional microdermabrasion, the at-home option will work to slough off a little bit of your skin without leaving you with as much sensitivity or redness. However, because the strength of these solutions isn’t nearly as high, you aren’t going to get the same results.
Although professional microdermabrasion is going to cost you more money for each session, the results that you get are going to be night and day. Specifically, the machine that we use at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants has technology that is designed for all skin types and will work to get rid of the top few layers of your skin— resulting in a smoother and healthier complexion. Additionally, all of our skin care professionals have years of training, which means that you will get the most precise and consistent results possible.
Yes, it is true that you will get some small results from your at-home microdermabrasion kit, but they won’t be nearly as noticeable as the results you will get if you get your microdermabrasion done in the office. If you would like to learn more about microdermabrasion or if you would like to schedule an appointment, contact Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants today!
