It’s the holiday season and when you want to look your best. But it can be hard to look your best when you aren’t feeling your best.
There’s nothing wrong with typical signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, but they can make you feel older than you are. They can also make you more self-conscious about your appearance.
But there are non-surgical ways to treat these subtle signs of aging and rejuvenate your face! We offer several treatments at Reflections at St. Luke’s that can help you feel as young and vibrant as you are.

When most people think of cosmetic treatments to treat wrinkles, they think of cosmetic procedures. However, there are non-surgical treatments that can significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging without resorting to invasive options.
These treatments usually only use injections and don’t require any downtime to recover. The results are also subtle, so you don’t have to worry about anyone noticing a considerable change in your appearance.
But the subtle enhancement to your features will make you glow and feel your best. Reflections at St. Luke’s offers three non-surgical cosmetic treatments for wrinkles and fine lines, including Botox, fillers, and cosmetic laser skin rejuvenation.
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world, and for good reason. Botox is non-invasive, subtle, and naturally processed out of the body, so it has no permanent effects.
If you have lines on your face like frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and lines on your neck, Botox is the best way to reduce their appearance. Botox is injected into the muscles that create the creases that become lines on your face.
Repeated muscle movements cause lines on the face, and injecting Botox into those muscles helps them relax, making them unable to turn into lines on the face. But you don’t have to worry about having a frozen face.
You’ll only have Botox injected into specific muscles to treat the area you want to look smooth and rejuvenated. The surrounding muscles automatically take over, so you can still move all parts of your face!
Botox injections last 3-4 months, so they’re perfect if you want to try a cosmetic treatment without resorting to something permanent. If you’re satisfied with your results, you can maintain the effects of Botox with regular injections.
Another injectable treatment worth trying if you want to look younger and refreshed is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injections that are naturally processed by the body.
However, dermal fillers usually last longer than Botox, taking between 6 and 18 months to be fully processed out of the body, depending on the specific kind of filler used.
Dermal fillers contain a gel that can fill in hollows and creases in the face to smooth out certain areas and plump others. Certain fillers can smooth out folds around the mouth and nose.
Some fillers fill out the appearance of the cheeks, while others can plump up the lips and increase their volume. There’s even a filler that can smooth out the common “parentheses” lines around the mouth and nose.
The advantage of dermal fillers is they are easy to inject with little downtime, meaning you can enjoy a more youthful appearance that’s refreshed and ready for the festivities of the holidays!
Cosmetic laser skin treatments are not injectable, but they are non-surgical and minimally invasive. Laser skin treatments are most commonly performed on the face but can also be performed on other parts of the body.
Laser skin treatments use a gentle laser to remove the very top layers of your skin. The laser then focuses on certain damaged areas to treat them and stimulate collagen production.
Laser skin rejuvenation can treat many things, like scarring from sun damage, rosacea, acne, and skin elasticity. Poor skin elasticity causes wrinkles to form on your face, so the treatment can treat wrinkles and also make it harder for wrinkles to develop in the future.
Increased collagen production also makes your skin healthier. The treatment results are long-lasting, especially if you keep your skin healthy using a good skincare routine!
With any of these treatments, you can look great in time for the holidays! Botox and dermal fillers don’t require a lengthy recovery, so you’ll look younger and radiant immediately.
Laser skin rejuvenation takes a little longer to heal, but you can expect any redness to diminish within a month of treatment. Whatever you choose, you can look forward to having dewy, glowing skin for the holidays!
You’ll have more confidence so you can be the perfect host or just the life of the party. No matter how you spend your holiday season, you can feel secure and happy about your appearance!
