Your Timeline to Look Great For Any Event!

Looking your best for a big or small event is always top of mind but figuring out the right plan to achieve this may not be. So, if you are looking to improve fine lines, wrinkles, boost your glow, correct a double chin, or any other type of procedure, you need to consider downtime, how long it takes to see full results, and any other details associated with the procedure.

To make this easy, Dr. Imber has outlined a variety of surgical and esthetic procedures that can help you reach your goals by show time. However, it’s important to consider that a customized plan is always best and everyone responds differently to everything.

Treatment: No Peel Peel

Downtime: You may be red for a few hours but most patients aren’t and can apply makeup right away. You won’t experience any peeling so this is great to prep skin 2 days before a big event!

Procedure: Botox

Downtime: This wrinkle reducer freezes muscles but does take 2 weeks to settle in. Consider this treatment at least a month before the big event to account for any adjustments.

Procedure: Fillers

Downtime: Fillers help replace volume loss in areas like cheeks, lips and under-eyes (tear-troughs). While results can be seen almost immediately, keep in mind that even the introduction of a needle can cause bruising and black and blue so do what you have to do at least 3 weeks before the big day.

Procedure: Microsuction

Downtime: This surgical procedure is the most efficient way to remove excess fat underneath the chin area. Dr. Imber often pairs this with a Fat Transfer if needed. Expect recovery to be 2-3 days and full results approximately 6-8 weeks.
