What Instant Fixes Should We Try For the Sexiest Valentine’s Day Yet?
You are probably already planning fresh hair and nails for Valentine’s Day, you may have even broken out a new outfit and your sexiest scent. But should you want to go in that direction, there’s endless options out there for treatments and procedures that will make this your hottest holiday yet.
Winter has made our lips dry, cracked and sad. Absolutely not how we want to feel when we’re kissed!
“Lips look great right away after a Hydrafacial, which exfoliates and infuses them with serum. To shape and fill the lips, Restylane Silk offers a subtle change with just a couple of days of swelling. Juvederm is robust, but lips are still soft. Any injection can lead to bruising, so avoid blood thinners before getting filler,” says plastic surgeon Heather J. Furnas, M.D.
Softer, brighter face
Face feeling tired? Blah?
“Patients love how they look after a PRP Microneedling treatment, which is done as series of three to six spaced one month apart. Peels with AHA, BHA, and Resorcinol may flake for a few days, after which the skin glows,” says Dr. Furnas. But to look good right away? Hydrafacial wins the prize, with its exfoliation and moisturizing qualities, says Dr. Furnas.
More V-Day Prep Ideas
‘Thermiva is taking off as a non-invasive, painless vaginal rejuvenation treatment that tightens and increases moisture. Botox and filler are always popular to look fresh and rested,” says Furnas. As far as surgery, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and labiaplasty are common requests, that often boost confidence, Furnas says.
Are V-Day treatments “gifts” a good idea?
You may have something you really want. Or your partner really wants. So is a Valentine’s Day gift of a plastic surgery or procedure/injection gift card a smart idea?
“If your sweetheart has never mentioned a procedure, I wouldn’t surprise him or her with a “gift.” On the other hand, some of our patients have had tears of happiness and appreciation as they recount how their loved one said, “You’ve always wanted this. Now you can have it.” In our medical spa, gift cards for non-specified services are very popular,” says Furnas.
