The holidays are filled with parties and gatherings with your extended family, friends, and the in-laws. Whether you’re attending a holiday party or hosting one of your own, you’re going to want to make sure you look refreshed and radiant wherever you are! The key to that? A great skin care regimen.

The key to great skin is planning and a consistent routine. The Senara Health & Spa team in Peoria are experts on creating customized skin care plans for our guests. We’ll analyze your skin and tell you exactly what services and products for at home will get you glowing!

If you aren’t sure where to start, we have a foolproof 8-step plan that covers ALL the bases. Check it out and then schedule an appointment at our medical spa and show off your new look to your family and friends this holiday season!

Step One: Chemical Peels

Peel treatments are the first step to starting your beauty regimen off right with rejuvenated and radiant skin. Peels are a powerful way to give your skin the extra burst it needs to glow this season. This will also give you a better understanding of the health of your skin, and whether other medical spa services could help further improve the appearance of your skin. 

Chemical peels can help improve your skin tone and clarity while also reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and acne. At Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa, we offer different chemical peels and Environ Cool Peels (no post-peel redness! Win win for good skin!) to help give your skin the boost it needs. 

Step Two: CoolSculpting

What’s the fun in dressing up for holiday events if you don’t feel confident with the shape of your body? CoolSculpting can help smooth and contour your physique without diet, exercise or surgery. Skip the Spanx, get CoolSculpting instead, is our motto. 

Sometimes there are certain areas of fat that are resistant to dieting and exercising. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that freezes away unwanted fat from those problem areas on your abdomen, arms, lower buttock, outer thighs, inner thighs, and more. Then, in the weeks and months following your CoolSculpting procedure, your body will eliminate those dead cells and leave those problems areas looking smooth — and leave you looking amazing in that holiday outfit! Results take up to 90 days for the full effect, however, so we recommend you plan ahead for this one!

Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive, you won’t have recovery time following your procedure. No one needs to know you had anything done! They’ll just notice the results with your improved shape. Learn more about the technology and process behind CoolSculpting on our website

Step Three: HydraFacial

Dry skin can be a real problem in the winter. HydraFacial is the answer to getting your skin the boost of moisture it needs while improving tone and texture, too! 

A HydraFacial features the best of peels, microdermabrasion, and serum infusion for dramatic anti-aging results. Because results are visible quickly after your treatment, it’s a great last minute facial option before a big holiday event! Plus, you can upgrade your HydraFacial experience with different serums, including our skin tightening to our detoxifying serum. Your face is going to love it!

Step Four: Injectables and Fillers

Non-surgical fillers are the ultimate solution for smoothing deeper lines and contouring face structure. At Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa, we offer both JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel and Restylane fillers to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The goal of fillers is to help fill in areas of lost volume (a natural part of the aging process, unfortunately), smoothing out the skin and reducing those wrinkles. JUVÉDERM®  and Restylane Fillers are great for replacing lost volume in your cheeks or smoothing fine lines and wrinkles around your lips and lip lines. 

Step Five: BOTOX®

No one likes frown lines — especially when you’re supposed to be throwing a cheerful holiday party. The answer to erasing them is Botox.

BOTOX® is an FDA-approved treatment to help remove frown lines and crow’s feet around your face. This treatment will target any unwanted wrinkles caused by normal muscle movements, leaving you with smoother lines around your forehead, eyes, and mouth. When you plan your BOTOX® appointment ahead of time, you will leave your friends and family members wondering where your frown lines went!

Step Six: Massage

The ultimate pre-party treat is a relaxing massage. Holiday planning or holiday preparation has probably left you exhausted and your muscles tight. We hold a lot of stress and tension in our muscles, so a massage is the perfect way to focus on those areas — while also spending some rest and relaxation time at the spa. (And who doesn’t need some of that in their life, right?!?)

At Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa, we offer a wide range of massage therapies, including our deep tissue, muscle mender, and Swedish massages. You can also schedule a couple’s massage for both a fun date idea and a mini reward for all of the party planning time you’ve spent. Just don’t forget to schedule your massage at our medical spa before it’s too close to your holiday party!  

Step Seven: Mani & Pedi

It goes without saying, but a fresh mani & pedi are essential to your holiday party look. Just make sure to get your nail appointment on the calendar ahead of time to ensure your nails are fresh for the event. We always recommend the CND Shellac Gel Manicure to make sure you don’t have any chipping  before your party. 

Also take some time to think about what you want your mani & pedi to look like. Is there a certain holiday color that matches your party? Or do you need a special color or design nails that match your party outfit? Whatever you decide, your nail treatment will help give you the ultimate look this holiday season. 

Step Eight: Makeup

The last step is your makeup. The day of the big event, a professional make-up application is a great choice. 

At Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa, have your makeup done by our team of medical spa professionals or sign up for a make-up lesson prior to the event to get custom product recommendations and application instructions. Just decide which option is best for you — and how much time you have on the day of your party to get your makeup done — and schedule your makeup appointment now
