Treatments To Get You Holiday Party-Ready

‘Tis the season for endless parties, family gatherings, and reunions. Are you looking for a pre-holiday pick-me-up? Because it may be the season of giving but you can’t forget to treat yourself too. Or perhaps, you simply feel ready for a change that will give your self-confidence a boost,  just in time for all those party close-up snaps. If you are, there are lots of treatments you can try to enhance your look –all quick and easy without any downtime.

Coast Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center has been providing cosmetic and medical dermatology services to patients in Laguna Beach and the surrounding areas since 1989. You can be confident that your skincare needs are being addressed by only experts. Dr. Glenn Goldberg and his team can perform injectable, skin rejuvenating, and skin tightening treatments that will have you looking and feeling your best throughout the season and beyond.

Your Holiday Beauty Checklist

These are the minimally-invasive treatments you can rely on for a quick enhancement, offered by Coast Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center:

Dermal Fillers  

A major advantage of these injectables is that the results are instant and natural-looking. Dermal fillers, performed by Dr. Goldman himself, can add volume to the cheeks, plump up deflated lips, smooth fine lines, fill in under-eye areas, and give the face an overall natural lift. At Coast Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center, we provide a wide range of dermal fillers to address the many skin concerns of our patients. Dermal filler results can last for 6-24 months (depending on the product used and target area), allowing you to enjoy the benefits of the treatment long after the holidays are over.

Examples of dermal fillers we use include Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane, Belotero, Radiesse, and Sculptra. Our team of experts at our Laguna Beach office will advise you as to which products will generate your desired results.

Wrinkle Relaxers 

These injectables work by temporarily relaxing the muscles in the forehead, around the brows and eyes, on the ridge of the nose, border of the lips, and neck to create a softer and smoother appearance. Wrinkle relaxers effectively treat moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles, helping you achieve tighter, firmer, and younger-looking skin. Optimal results can be achieved in 3-7 days and will last for 3-6 months.

Examples of wrinkle relaxers include Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.

Skin Rejuvenating Treatment

Laser and light therapies are effective treatments for triggering the body’s natural cell processes to repair the skin as well as to accelerate rejuvenation. An example of a skin rejuvenating treatment would be AFT Pulsed Light Therapy –a non-invasive treatment that uses light and heat to refine your skin’s overall appearance, improving its quality and health, especially after too much sun exposure. Target areas absorb the pulsed light energy without causing damage to the skin. It effectively treats photodamaged skin, broken capillaries, and brown discoloration. The heat energy also boosts collagen production, brightening the skin while improving its texture –all achieved with little or no discomfort, and minimal to no downtime. Dr. Goldberg also offers skin resurfacing using the UltraPulse – Fractional C02 laser. This revolutionary device can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, from fine lines and wrinkles to scars and other skin impurities. 

Skin Tightening Treatment

A skin tightening treatment done by our own Christina Basham, PA-C can address loose and sagging skin, helping you reclaim youthfulness to the skin without requiring any downtime. A procedure you can try is the Alma Skin Tightening treatment which uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat tissue within the skin’s inner layer (dermis), instigating the body’s natural healing response and promoting new collagen formation. Skin becomes smoother and more elastic.

Chemical Peel

A non-invasive procedure that improves the look and feel of skin, a chemical peel involves the application of a solution to the skin, causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The result is smoother, more radiant skin with even skin tone and less visible wrinkles. Coast Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center offers the Vitalize Peel By SkinMedica. It is suitable for all skin types and produces noticeable results after just one peel. It can treat mild-to-moderate skin conditions such as sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, acne scarring, and melasma. 

A Revitalizing Facial

Facials do wonders for the skin too. A good facial not only refreshes and rejuvenates the skin, but it treats you to a pampering experience as well. Try the Ultimate Pumpkin Enzyme Facial. It includes thorough deep cleansing, a relaxing neck shoulder and hand massage, and a soothing hydrating mask that increases the rate of skin cell renewal, resulting in the instant tightening and brightening of the skin. 

For best results, we recommend the above treatments to be accompanied by our advised skincare program. Dr. Goldberg has over 25 years of expert experience as a board-certified dermatologist and continues to remain on the cutting edge of the latest advancements in the field of dermatology. He has personally selected all of the products we offer in our Laguna Beach office. His selection of prescription and cosmetic products have been clinically proven to deliver excellent results.
