You are currently viewing Prep Your Skin for the Festive Season!

As we approach the celebratory period of Chinese New Year, our focus naturally shifts to organizing family gatherings, travel arrangements, and sprucing up our homes. However, it is equally as important to dedicate some time to prepare our skin, ensuring that we look and feel our best as we usher in the Lunar New Year.

Our team of doctors have shared skincare tips and treatments below, suitable for both males and females. However, it’s important to remember that these are general guidelines. Our skin age doesn’t always align with our chronological age. It is always best to customize your skincare routine based on the specific problems you may be experiencing.

Prep You Skin - Sylfirm X

In Your 20s and 30s: 

Congratulations! You’re still reveling in the benefits of youth, typically characterized by supple, firm, and radiant skin. That said, if you’re suffering from acne, treatments such as Sylfirm X can help reduce the activity of oil glands in the skin. This results in less oil production, which also reduces the chances of clogged pores. You can consider treatments like Pico laser and fractional CO2 to address concerns such as uneven skin tone, acne scars and pigmentation from sun damage. 

Additionally, incorporating Plinest and injectable moisturizer like Profhilo® can help hydrate the skin for a covetable, dewy complexion that others will envy – perfect for all the festive gatherings! Don’t forget to establish a solid skincare routine with moisturizers, low strength retinol, exfoliants like AHA/BHAs and sunscreen to keep your skin clean, hydrated, and protected from sun damage.

Prep You Skin - Belotero Revive

In Your 30s and 40s: 

Intrinsic aging is the natural aging process that takes place over the years regardless of outside influences. After the age of 20, a person produces about 1 percent less collagen in the skin each year, resulting in thinner, more fragile skin as years progresses. There is also diminished functioning of the sweat and oil glands in addition to less elastin production. With that, wrinkle formation as a result of intrinsic aging is inevitable, but it will always be slight when compared to lifestyle factors from extrinsic aging. Extrinsic aging is a result of sun and environmental damage and poor habits (tobacco use and exposure to pollution, for example). 

Both intrinsic and extrinsic aging give the skin the appearance of roughness, uneven tone, brown patches, thin skin and deep wrinkles.  

Hence as you enter your 30s and 40s, signs of aging may become more noticeable, requiring targeted treatments to address specific concerns. Muscle relaxants like Botox can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes and forehead. Botox also offers rapid results, smoothing out your skin within just 3-5 days. To ensure your face is flawlessly radiant for Chinese New Year festivities, schedule your Botox appointment at least one week in advance. 

Boost your Botox results with other treatments like Sylfirm X and Boletero Revive. Both are quick and minimally invasive procedures that yield immediate results, leaving you with a dewy, firmer complexion, perfect for welcoming the festive season. Additionally, Ultherapy can be beneficial for lifting and tightening sagging skin, particularly along the jawline and neck. 

For scars, Pico laser and fractional CO2 deliver excellent improvement in fine lines, general texture, and a reduction in troublesome pigmentation areas.

To maintain the results of these treatments, continue using moisturizers and incorporating retinol and sunscreen into your skincare routine. At this age, it’s ideal to incorporate serums tailored to your specific skin type— examples are copper peptides, growth factors and ceramides.   

Prep You Skin - Ultherapy

In Your 40s and Beyond (Menopause): 

For women experiencing menopause, hormonal changes can lead to a loss of collagen and elasticity in the skin, resulting in dryness, thinning, and increased wrinkles. Focus on treatments that target skin laxity and volume loss, such as fillers with biostimulators properties like Radiesse and Ellanse. These injectable fillers stimulate collagen production and restore lost volume, resulting in firmer and more youthful-looking skin. 

Additionally, both Radiesse and Ellanse serve as fast-acting fillers, swiftly enhancing volume in your skin within one to three days. Visible improvements become apparent around seven to 10 days post-treatment allowing you to pair your festive attire with radiant skin and a confident smile during the Chinese New Year celebrations. Additionally, the benefits of the treatment will continue to enhance over 2 – 4 weeks as collagen stimulation progresses, further improving skin quality.

Ultherapy is particularly beneficial for women over 40 because it targets deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and providing a non-invasive solution for lifting and tightening sagging skin, reducing fine lines, and improving overall skin tone and texture.

For long-term skin rejuvenation, Plinest stands out as the ultimate choice. Its remarkable ability to repair and enhance skin quality ensures lasting results. Plinest addresses all four key aspects of skin rejuvenation—skin tone evenness, skin surface evenness, skin firmness, and skin glow—making it the golden choice for comprehensive and enduring skin improvement.
