Okay….who doesn’t want to save money and look great? It’s the classic New Year’s resolution! The reality is that things get in the way. Time, money and the sheer effort of change can derail anyone after a while.
I am here to tell you that it CAN be done. Here’s how:
Let’s say you have fine to moderate lines, brown spots and/or laxity in the lower face. These can be drastically reduced with one of the many at-home microdermabrasion or microneedling kits. Starting cost for your own device is ~$25 where a professional treatment will start around $125 per treatment.
I’d recommend the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System or PMD Microdermabrasion. Both have kits that are perfect for these skin issues. If you want to be a bit more aggressive then my recommendation would be one of the Ora microneedling dermal rollers.
But the biggest issue with any DIY skin care treatment really isn’t which device to use. It is actually using these tools on a regular basis. One way that helps is to schedule an appointment with yourself and KEEP IT just like you would any other appointment! Make it a habit and in 6 months you will love how your skin looks!
How about issues you can’t do yourself like Botox? Yes, it can be expensive, but did you know that multiple independent studies have shown that Dysport actually lasts LONGER than Botox. Not only that, but their reward program (Aspire Galderma Rewards) is much more generous than Botox’s Brilliant Distinction program. Most physicians charge the same for both Botox and Dysport, so if one lasts up to a full month longer than the other – why not try it?
Revanesse Versa. Never heard of it? It’s the newest HA dermal filler to hit the U.S. market. What’s so great about it? Little to no swelling. That’s right. You can get your lips injected one day and go back to work the next without looking like a blowfish! It also costs a bit less than all the other HA’s. Faster results and costs less??? What’s not to love?
And there you have it. Ways to improve your skin, stop those expression lines and restore lost volume – all without breaking the bank!
Until next time….
