It’s hard to believe that Halloween is upon us. I’m already feeling sad that some of the trees have lost all their leaves. The vivid fall colors paired with the sounds of leaves crunching underfoot, makes the briskness in the autumn air more bearable.
I don’t personally have any plans for Halloween this year, just a nice dinner to celebrate the completion of mid-terms, so I will be out and about on the 31st previewing all the elaborate costumes. We’re quite lucky in North America to have a day where adults get to dress up and pretend to be someone or something else for a few hours.
For those of us who are not dressing up, we still may want to put on a “new face” and scare off any wrinkles that have started to settle in. If these ghastly furrows have out-worn their welcome, don’t worry, there are several options with which you can banish them.
- Injectables This is undoubtedly the quickest and easiest method to create a more youthful appearance. A few tiny injections of either botox or a hyaluronic acid-based filler can imbue youthfulness to your appearance for four to twelve months. And if you feel like having a plumper pout while you’re at it- why not?
- Cosmetic Acupuncture This approach to age prevention works beyond the instant gratification of and helps to activate your body’s natural age-fighting battalion. Minute needles are place along expression lines and areas of concern to bring blood flow and nourishment to the skin, and connective tissues. The tiny wounds inflicted by the needles encourages the formation of collagen- all the while, you’re stimulating points corresponding to the organs of your body. Ostensibly, you’re doing your whole body a favor with this treatment.
- Photorejuvenation If the leopard look is not a part of your plan this Halloween and you’re looking to loose your spots, this treatment is for you. The side benefit to shedding those hyperpigmented cells is improved firmness and smoothing of fine lines.
- Skin Tightening This treatment is like boot camp for your skin. Infrared light builds heat in the dermal tissues of the skin, causing new collagen to be formed. The result, smoothing out of wrinkles, expression lines and facial contours without the fright-factor of a face lift.
Don’t let aging process scare you into submission- with these weapons at you’re disposal, this Halloween will have more of a Casper the Friendly Ghost feel, than that of a terrifying tribulation.
