Nonsurgical Holiday Makeovers: Quick Fixes for Thanksgiving

Ah, Thanksgiving! It’s a time to enjoy time with family and friends around a veritable feast. But there’s also the stress of travel and pulling together a big meal—and the ever-present jokes about Thanksgiving Day drama. Let us help you enjoy this special holiday! We offer a number of noninvasive, non-surgical treatments so you can look and feel your best for Thanksgiving gatherings. You’ll have one less thing to worry about—and can focus on the true meaning of being grateful for time with loved ones.

Treat Yourself!

These treatments are quick and require little to no recovery time, so you can be ready to roll well before you pack up the car for the drive, head to the airport, or start shopping for the feast. Not only are they easy, and they’re also highly effective—the perfect procedures to put your freshest face forward, whether it’s with your family at home or for the inevitable happy run-ins that you’ll have with people you haven’t seen in ages. Here are some of our favorite treatments.


Microneedling is magic for the skin—and it can be performed anywhere on the body. Using tiny needles to make micro-injuries in the outer layer of skin, this gentle treatment stimulates the collagen and elastin production that helps remove fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks and more for tighter skin that’s noticeably smoother. It can also minimize hair loss. Microneedling has an added benefit of stimulating additional collagen production to keep skin continually refreshed. You’ll be blown away by the immediate results and the sustained enhancement, and you’ll love the relaxing environment where we perform our treatments.

Chemical Peels

Go as deep as you’d like with a chemical peel, a gentle treatment that helps exfoliate the outer layer of skin to remove dead skin cells and reveal the younger, more vibrant skin beneath. Especially helpful for reducing fine lines, acne, dull skin, large pores, sun damage, and pigmentation, peels smooth and brighten the skin, enhancing the overall appearance with a youthful freshness. We offer two types of chemical peels for your face, neck, chest, and hands in our relaxing, spa-like atmosphere. It’s a wonderful way to kick off your holiday season!

VI Peel® for Skin Damage: In only seven days, VI Peel’s uniquely formulated medium-depth treatments can lift pigment, remove sun damage, alleviate acne and scarring, and fight fine lines and wrinkles, so you’re holiday-ready for the entire season and beyond. Procedures are painless and safe for all skin types and tones.

Obagi Blue Peel®: Created just for the face, this deep peel is our most effective peel available; it removes moderate lines, freckles, age spots, and even shallow scars by penetrating the skin and eliminating damaged skin cells from the middle layer. It’s a one-time procedure with excellent results that will have people saying, “How do you stay so young?”

It’s the facial everyone is talking about, from the A-listers to your friends who follow the A-listers. HydraFacial uses innovative and award-winning technology to eliminate dryness, enlarged pores, wrinkles, brown spots, oily skin, and other challenges with zero downtime or irritation, for the “best skin of your life,” according to the creators. We follow a three-step process that cleanses and exfoliates to remove dead skin and unveil the fresh new skin; extracts and hydrates by removing pore debris and then infusing the skin with nourishing moisturizers; and then fuses and protects by saturating the skin with antioxidants and peptides to get you glowing. Finally, washes of red and blue light therapy help stimulate collagen and prevent acne. Our patients swear by this treatment and schedule it monthly for optimal results, but one time will make a noticeable difference too.

Forever Young BBL

This BBL (broadband light) treatment is safe and highly effective, harnessing light therapy to turn back the hands of the clock on sun damage and aging. We use Forever Young BBL on all areas of the body to address redness, sun damage, age spots, small vessels, active acne, and more. By directing the light energy deep into the skin, it stimulates collagen to continue refreshing your skin. Results are almost immediate and get even better with regularly scheduled treatments. With no downtime, you can enjoy the treatment and be ready for festivities the next day.

HaloTM Laser Treatment

If getting together at Thanksgiving has you worried about people noticing blemishes, pigmentation, fine lines, and more, Halo is your quick fix before the holidays! We use this effective but gentle laser resurfacing technique to target enlarged pores, rough skin, discoloration, scars, and wrinkles, whether they’re on your face, neck, chest, or hands. Halo works immediately with little to no recovery time. It also stimulates collagen production for the gift that keeps giving, and will have you wondering why you didn’t try it sooner!

Injectables and Fillers

If you want to address frown lines or other wrinkles on your face, we offer DysportⓇ and BotoxⓇ injectables and dermal fillers for immediate results. Use Botox for fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead or by your eyes, and Dysport for the “11” between your eyes. Both also help avoid future wrinkles so we recommend them as preventative strategies too. Fillers like RestylaneⓇ, JuvédermⓇ, VolumaⓇ, SculptraⓇ, and more can give you a more sculpted look by building up any hollow facial areas, helping alleviate fine lines and wrinkles. These super quick fixes give you instant glam for your holiday season!

ZOⓇ Skin Health Products

If you’re looking to wow in the holiday season after Thanksgiving, don’t forget to adopt a smart skincare routine that helps maintain your results and promotes healthy aging. We offer a suite of ZO Skin Health products customized for challenges like pigmentation, wrinkles, acne, and more. While results are not as immediate as with the above treatments, integrating a well-rounded skincare routine is an important part of maintaining your skin’s health and ensuring it for the future. And if you’re looking for something more dramatic for the holidays and beyond, we also offer surgical procedures like our new Elevate Facelift, which provides more lasting results with minimal recovery time—and the thread lift, which also boasts minimal recovery time.

Make It a Thanksgiving to Remember

No matter how you spend your holidays, we hope that you have some time to truly enjoy them—to reflect on what you’re grateful for and enjoy the love and company of those with whom you celebrate. While it’s wonderful to feel beautiful when you enter a room of people you haven’t seen in a while, it’s even more wonderful to feel the beauty on the inside as you connect with them. At the Advanced Center for Plastic Surgery, we are extremely grateful for our wonderful patients and their families. We wish everyone a safe and fulfilling Thanksgiving and the beginning of a beautiful holiday season!
