Your Cosmetic Treatment Timeline for Flawless Holiday Photos

couple's christmas photoIf you want to get the most out of your holiday photo shoot this year, you might be considering a cosmetic treatment or two. The trick is to get the timing just right so you can reap the benefits of each procedure in time for your photos*. Take a look at the general timeline for scheduling these common cosmetic treatments for the holidays.

1. Facial

If blackheads, acne or a dull, lackluster complexion are bothering you, you might be considering getting a facial before your holiday photos or another big event. Although you could see a noticeable improvement in your skin’s appearance within a few days after your facial, schedule it about a month in advance to see the biggest improvements*.

2. Chemical Peel

Similar to a facial, you’ll want to give chemical peels about a month to have its full effects in time for your photos*.

There are lots of different types of peels, so make sure you talk to your plastic surgeon or aesthetician about the most appropriate choice for your skin.

3. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are popular cosmetic treatments before the holidays for several reasons. Not only to they not require downtime, but they can typically be scheduled just a few days before a big event*.


If forehead wrinkles or crow’s feet are your main cosmetic concern, BOTOX® may be the best choice for you. This injectable treatment can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months and should be scheduled 2 to 3 weeks before your holiday photos*.
