Christmas parties, dinners and magic moments under the mistletoe - are you ready and looking your best for the upcoming holiday season? To ensure you look as festive as you feel, the medical estheticians at 8 West Cosmetic Surgery suggest the following five beauty boosts to give your skin a youthful Yuletide glow!


1. Botox

With zero downtime, Botox is perfect for those looking to achieve a quick and subtle holiday beauty boost. This popular neuromodulator is a "wrinkle relaxer" that blocks the muscle contractions that lead to facial lines and can also treat hyperhidrosis, which causes excessive sweating in the hands, underarms and back.


2. Dermal Fillers

Ideal for correcting facial volume loss associated with aging, dermal fillers can bring back the youthfulness associated with, say, full cheeks (they're also great for plumping a particular part of the face, like the lips). Best of all, little recovery time makes them a perfect beauty pick-me-up for the busy holiday season.


3. Chemical Peel

Our medical grade peels are nicknamed "red carpet peels" for their popularity among Hollywood celebrities. Boasting quick and significant results with minimal to no downtime, these facial peels work to improve the health of the skin through exfoliation, cellular stimulating and a calming post-treatment cream. They can target and treat acne, melasma, discolouration, sun damage, fine lines, texture roughness, large pores and dullness and are good for any skin type or tone.


4. Microneedling

Also called skin needling, this collagen-induction therapy is minimally invasive yet very effective. A device with fine needles punctures the skin to create a very controlled injury and initiate the healing process, resulting in a boost of collagen and plumper, healthier skin for the festive season.


5. BBL Photo Facial

When it comes to addressing uneven skin tone, poor skin texture, large pores and/or sun damage, our BBL Photo Facial is your holiday cure all. This broad-band light therapy heats the upper layers of the epidermis to correct UV damage and stimulate the cells to regenerate collagen.
