- Cryotherapy (cold liquid nitrogen spray) to erase brown/tan “age” growths on the face or body. The procedure involves a 5-7 day recovery time, during which one may have a thin scaly crust over the growths, before they fall off. 70% of them can be covered with concealer, but I do not advocate planning the procedure right before an important event, such as a wedding. See below for typical results on the hands:
- Sculptra® injections, to improve moderate facial volume loss, treat deep wrinkles, or lift a sagging mid- or lower face, takes approximately 3 months to show full results, since it stimulates collagen production in the skin. If you want your results to be impressive for those holiday photos, get your Sculptra® injections now!

- IPL (stands for “Intense Pulsed Light”), also called thePhotoFacial, is a combination of laser treatments in the red and brown light spectrum, to treat both the redness, broken capillaries and brown spots associated with recent and long-term sun damage. I often advocate doing this laser treatment at the end of the summer, to “clean up” all of the sun exposure “mis-steps” which occurred during the past season. ☺
- Sclerotherapy (leg vein injections), so your legs can look pretty in those holiday cocktail dresses, involves a 2 week bruising period, solely in the area of the treated veins. Therefore, think about treating those leg veins in September, so that your legs look great by late October.
- Consider doing a deeper chemical peel than usual this month. If you get some mild scale or crust, you can recover more easily now, before your fall social schedule gets into full swing. A deeper chemical peel is ideal for younger skin, to erase the summer sun “mistakes” of 2012.
