With the holidays right around the corner, we’re all looking to feel fresh and confident before we reunite with our friends and loved ones. If you’re looking to minimize fine lines and achieve smoother, younger-looking skin, you may want to consider NUCEIVA. Now available at our Burlington plastic surgery practice, NUCEIVA is an easy nonsurgical treatment that rejuvenates your face and helps you look more relaxed and refreshed without the downtime or invasiveness of surgery.
In this blog post, we will explain how BOTOX works, what issues it can address, and how to best plan out your BOTOX treatments, so you can look your best for your big holiday event.
How Does NUCEIVA Work?
NUCEIVA (or its cousin BOTOX COSMECTIC®) is a neuromodulator, which means it relaxes muscles and prevents them from contracting and pulling on the skin. This prevents or reverses the formation of “dynamic wrinkles,” lines that form when you move your facial muscles—think squinting, frowning, or raising your eyebrows. The result is smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin with just a 10- to 20-minute appointment.
Which Areas Can NUCEIVA Treat?
The most popular BOTOX treatment areas include:
- Crow’s feet: The fine lines around the outer corners of the eyes that often result from squinting or smiling.
- Frown lines: Also called glabellar lines or “11s,” these vertical lines between the eyebrows appear with repeated frowning.
- Bunny lines: These lines appear on either side of the nose when wrinkled.
These are just a few of the many different uses for NUCEIVA. When you visit Cosmedica, we’ll create a custom plan to address any concerns you may be facing. For many people, that includes combining NUCEIVA with an injectable dermal filler to create the best possible results. Learn more about what you can expect at your appointment in this previous blog post.
Why Get NUCEIVA Before the Holiday Season?
NUCEIVA, much like BOTOX turns the clock back on your appearance without dramatically altering your appearance or requiring major recovery time. You’ll look younger, more rested, and more at ease when you reunite with loved ones at your holiday events. Results typically last about 3 months, so with just one quick treatment, you’ll enjoy smoother, younger-looking skin all season long.
When Should I Get NUCEIVA Before My Holiday Event?
NUCEIVA is a nonsurgical procedure, so it requires little to no downtime. However, it does take some time for the injectable to take effect and for results to develop. We recommend scheduling a treatment at least 2 weeks before your big holiday event.
