Audra Lowe: This holiday season you are going to want to put your best face forward where we luckily it's easier than ever to do if you try one of these fast face fixes of elbow at your local dermatologist. Dr. Francesca Fusco: Everybody is thinking about how they are going to look for big events and parties and we are seeing a lot of patients here asking what can they do that reasonably priced to perk up their appearance, brighten their skin, and make them look younger and better. Female Speaker: Dr. Francesca Fusco says there are three easy ways to freshen up your look without being at a commission over the holiday season. Dr. Francesca Fusco: As a matter of fact, that's one of my specialties because many patients cannot afford to go home and hide for a week after having something done. So, we have many treatments that we can do that resurface the face and make it look smoother, injectables that take away fine lines, wrinkles and crows feet, filers that can get rid of smile lines and other treatments that will make you look younger not cost a lot and have no downtime. Female Speaker: Lets start with treatment number one. Dr. Francesca Fusco: Treatment number one is called fraxel. Fraxel is laser resurfacing and even though if you have the word laser don't think all red and crusty and that you are going to have to hide for a week. Doing the fraxel treatment once every three to four weeks for a total of between three and six treatments will leave you looking a little pink for a couple of hours afterwards and in the long run take away brown spots, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles and just give you an overall brighter appearance. Number two is Thermage uses special energy radio wave frequency energy to tighten your face. I comically use the word -- sometimes because instead of getting a face lift what you can do is the Thermage and give you a little lift along your jaw line, take away little fullness underneath your neck or lift your eyebrows a little. There is virtually no downtime from the Thermage. You do it and you can go straight back to work, go pick up the kids and be on a new way. Female Speaker: The last treatment Botox is a familiar one but the procedure is changed a bit and so has the name. Dr. Francesca Fusco: Number three is Botox which we now calling neurotoxin because there are two products on the market, Botox and DISPORT, and both of these injectables are used to smooth out the number 11 lines that people get here to give a little bit of a lift to their eyebrows and to smooth out crows feet. It's kind of like a liquid face. You have been injectable and two weeks later you have a nice lift to your face, my patients tell me it's the biggest bank for your buck these days. Female Speaker: Three great ways to put your best face forward this holiday season. Audra Lowe: And don't worry about suffering through any other recovery time, all these procedures can be done during your lunch hour and you will be back to work that very afternoon.
