5 'Must-Have' Holiday Treatments

Topics: General, Skin Care


For most people, the holiday season consists of endless get-togethers, shopping, outdoor winter activities and New Year’s celebrations. It can be a joyous, exciting and tiring time of the year.

When you’re constantly on the go and thinking of others this holiday season, it can be easy to neglect the smaller things that seem less important, such as your skin. Here at Belleza, we want to remind you not to leave skin care behind this winter!

Our estheticians and physicians strongly believe that part of feeling good on the inside comes from feeling good on the outside. A healthy and radiant complexion will help you beam energy at your holiday get-togethers, even if you feel like taking a 24-hour-nap.

Our expert estheticians and dermatologists recommend the following treatments to keep your skin glowing this holiday season and throughout the winter months.

DermaplaningIzzie Flynn, LE | Hinsdale & Warrenville Belleza

“If you want a beautiful glow this holiday season, dermaplaning is the way to go.

Dermaplaning can be a stand-alone service or combined with a facial or chemical peel for an initial exfoliation. By exfoliating with dermaplaning first, the products in your treatment will penetrate the skin more intensely, giving you the maximum benefit of the ingredients. 

Dermaplaning also removes fine hairs, leaving the skin soft and supple, and producing the perfect canvas for makeup application.”

HydraFacial®Nancy Keller, LE | Joliet Belleza

“The HydraFacial® will give you beautiful, fresh skin immediately following your treatment. The benefits include hydration, plumping and deep cleansing to free your pores. This is a perfect treatment to get before the holiday madness to help keep your skin hydrated and healthy.

Whenever I get a HydraFacial®, I am so pleased with the results. I’ve actually had family and friends ask me what I do to make my skin look so bright and flawless!”

SkinPen® MicroneedlingAnna La Tour, LE | Wheaton Belleza

“Our Skinpen® microneedling treatment will keep your skin radiant this holiday season.

Microneedling supports collagen production, pore reduction and a smooth complexion. It is often used to improve fine lines and wrinkles and acne staining and scarring.

Immediately following your microneedling treatment you will have mild discomfort and feel warm, similar to sunburn, for 48 hours. You can also have some dryness, tightness and peeling on days three to five. Treatments should be done in a series, depending on your skin concerns.

I’ve had three microneedling treatments myself and love the results. My best improvements are fewer lines around my mouth and eyes, in addition to firmer skin.”

Thermage®Melissa Lounsbury, LE | Naperville Belleza

“Thermage® is an ideal treatment to get before the holidays because it will smooth, tighten and contour your skin with little to no downtime.

Thermage® is typically performed on areas of the face to address signs of aging but it can be performed on other parts of the body as well such as the abdomen and legs. The key benefits include smoother skin, redefined contouring and collagen remodeling.

At one month post-treatment, my patients have reported that their skin feels firmer, and after three months, the contouring is more visible. At six months post-procedure, they had optimal results revealing smoother, younger looking skin.”

VI Chemical Peel (SkinMedica®)Dr. Stephanie Gan, MD | Hinsdale & Lombard Belleza

“I recommend the VI Peel® to get that holiday glow.

VI Peels® are suitable for various skin types, including darker skin tones. Each treatment is pain-free with results seen in as little as seven days. With its unique combination of vitamins and minerals, the VI Peel® helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles, restore a more even skin tone and smooth away rough texture.

The VI Peel® is designed to specifically address signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne and acne scarring.

I’ve had this treatment done over a weekend with minimal downtime. Afterwards, I had glowing and smoother looking skin.

The VI Peel® provides dramatic results that will leave your skin radiant this holiday season.”
