Whether you’re already in a happy relationship, or are still looking for your special someone, there’s something about Valentine’s Day that motivates us all to look and feel our very best.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, here are 20 ways to look great before the big day arrives.
1. Banish the bulge with CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is a safe and non-invasive procedure that permanently gets rid of diet- and exercise-resistant bulges of fat on the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, bra line, back and buttocks. The treatment has also been proven effective at getting rid of a double chin.
CoolSculpting has become the most popular non-surgical fat-reduction method around the world because it is a quick and painless way to eliminate fat with no need for surgery or downtime. Most patients see results after just a few treatments. Learn more about CoolSculpting here.
2. Let lasers reveal healthy, glowing skin.
Laser resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that uses an intense, precise beam of light to improve the look of your skin. We often recommend laser treatment to minimize wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, blemishes, broken capillaries and varicose veins, stretch marks, scars, sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
Depending on the results you wish to achieve with laser skin resurfacing, we can tailor our treatment specifically for your skin type and the issues you would like to address. Get more details.
3. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
It’s easy to get caught up in daily stresses and worries. Everything from an overcrowded inbox to a traffic jam can take its toll on you, weighing you down and creating more negativity in your life.
Next time you feel overly stressed, try taking a moment to read, watch or listen to something that makes you laugh. Laughing and joking can help you relax and put you back into a more optimistic frame of mind. Try not to take yourself too seriously – it’s not the end of the world if you’re not totally in control of your situation at all times.
4. Give yourself compliments.
It’s always nice when someone gives you a pat on the back, but you don’t have to wait for someone else to give you an assist on a mood boost. You may feel awkward at first, but complimenting yourself out loud will help you validate positive affirmations and learn to
actively notice and acknowledge your best qualities.
5. Regain a youthful appearance in only 30 minutes.
Rejuvapen™ is a medical-grade micro-needling system that uses tiny, ultra-fine needles to create big results. Micro-needling leads to a youthful, healthy appearance and has been proven very effective at improving mild to moderate scarring and signs of aging.
With micro-needling, we can address common complaints such as fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, superficial scarring, stretch marks, discoloration and enlarged pores.
Basically, RejuvaPen treatments are so effective because they kick your body’s natural healing powers into overdrive, encouraging skin to repair itself – without surgery, discomfort or downtime. Treatment usually lasts about 30 minutes, and recovery time is no more than 24 hours. Is this procedure right for you? Find out more.
6. Wear clothes that make you feel good.
Old, ill-fitting or uncomfortable clothes can detract from your looks and put a dent in your self-confidence. Choose clothes that not only match your personal style, but also fit properly, in a way that flatters you. Make sure your clothes feel comfortable, too – nobody likes wearing something that’s itchy, hot or too tight.
7. Permanently remove unwanted hair.
Many of us are unhappy with waxing, shaving or tweezing to remove unwanted hair. That’s why laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S. If you’re considering laser hair removal, here’s how this option works.
Laser hair removal relies on highly focused beams of light to target the melanin in the hair. The laser creates heat that is intense enough to damage hair follicles, preventing future hair growth.
We can use laser hair removal on almost any part of the body; however, the most common areas we treat include legs, underarms, upper lip, chin and bikini line. Read more.
8. Eliminate negativity.
If you catch yourself getting caught up in negative self-talk, you need to pay close attention to why. These types of statements can make you feel worse about yourself and take a toll on your self-image. When you constantly obsess over things you don’t like about yourself, your low self-esteem will begin to affect every area of your life. Be mindful of the times you allow yourself to slip into pessimism, and get into the habit of counteracting every negative thought with a positive one.
9. Look younger with immediately noticeable results.
If your goal is to look subtly younger, reduce wrinkles and creases, restore natural facial contours or achieve a more rested, energetic look almost instantaneously, injectable dermal fillers are just the treatment you’re looking for.
Many of our patients are opting to use injectable treatments to achieve a more naturally youthful look with no need for surgery or downtime. These nontoxic, FDA-approved products are safe and effective for improving:
● The look of dark circles or bags under eyes
● A double chin
● Loose skin around chin or neck areas
● Sunken cheeks, temples or backs of hands
● Sagging or wrinkles around the corners of the mouth
Facial fillers offer long-lasting, natural-looking results without the recovery time or potential side effects of a surgical cosmetic procedure. You can choose a combination of injectable fillers to reshape your entire face in a process known as a “liquid facelift,” or you may choose to improve just one specific facial feature. Learn more about your options for injectables.
10. Work up a sweat!
You might dread the gym, but it can play a crucial factor in helping yourself feel more attractive, confident and sexy. Exercise goes well beyond the obvious physical impact on your body – working out is an incredibly effective way to boost your mood by releasing feel-good chemicals called endorphins. Schedule a daily run or gym time with your romantic partner for even better motivation!
11. Kiss your double chin goodbye.
A double chin, also known as submental fat, can put a significant dent in your self-confidence and ruin every selfie you take. If you are one of the many people who struggles with a genetic double chin, you have probably realized by now that this is one of the most difficult areas of your body to tone because it does not often respond to diet and exercise. Now, you have a new, minimally invasive option at your disposal.
Kybella is a revolutionary prescription medication that safely, permanently and naturally eliminates submental fat deposits by imitating a process found in your digestive system. In just a few brief in-office treatment sessions, Kybella makes it possible to slim your chin and jawline and create a more defined profile without surgery.
12. Get smoother skin.
Microdermabrasion is another non-invasive skin care procedure that is in high demand at our Atlanta clinic. Our aesthetic specialists will use a specially designed tool to gently exfoliate the top layer of your skin, removing imperfections such as uneven skin tone or texture, wrinkles and fine lines, stretch marks, age spots, pimples and sun damage. Microdermabrasion is a painless and low-risk way to get a healthy glow without recovery time or activity restrictions. Learn more about this treatment option.
13. Put on a happy face.
It’s no secret a smile makes you seem warm and inviting to other people, which can help improve their impression of you. However, you may get those same benefits by gazing into a mirror and smiling at yourself. Smiling is a universal signal that indicates approachability and attractiveness. People who smile more can make themselves look and feel happier every day.
14. Brighten your eyes.
Your eyes can convey a range of emotions without you having to say a word. However, the delicate skin around your eyes and eyelids is often the first place where early signs of aging emerge. You may be concerned that crow’s feet and sagging skin are making you look older, or conveying an unspoken message that you are always angry or fatigued. Laser eyelid resurfacing is an excellent non-surgical option for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their eyes and turn back the clock on premature aging.
15. You are what you eat.
One of the easiest ways to feel like a million bucks is to eat a balanced diet and get plenty of hydration. By choosing fresh produce instead of overly processed, canned or frozen foods, you can give yourself a natural energy boost and help your skin look better from the inside out.
16. Treat yourself to a chemical peel.
Skin care trends change over time, but chemical peels have remained enduringly popular because they are such an effective way to treat common skin concerns. If you are looking for an anti-aging solution that is customizable to your needs, ask us if you are a good candidate for one of our three levels of chemical peel.
17. Have good posture.
Your mother was on to something when she constantly pestered you to stand up straight. We now know your posture can have a major impact in how you look and feel about yourself. Instead of slumping or hunching, take a moment to realign your spine and pull your shoulders back for a quick and easy mood boost. Viewing yourself in a more positive way may be as easy as keeping your chin up – literally!
18. Get a completely kissable pout.
Contoured, plump lips are all the rage on social media because they create instantly beautiful results without recovery time. Whether you choose to augment your upper lip, lower lip or both, a skilled injector can place the ideal amount of filler in the perfect spots to help you get ready for all your most romantic Valentine’s Day encounters.
19. Stop comparing yourself to others.
Keeping up with your close friends and favorite celebs online is a fun way to pass the time, but the idealized images people post on Facebook, Instagram and other platforms can cause you to fall into a dangerous trap of making you feel like you’re inferior to others. Constantly scrolling through other people’s carefully selected photos makes it nearly impossible to feel good about yourself. Limit your time online and focus on what’s most important in your real life.
20. Be yourself.
Nothing improves your overall appearance like feeling good about yourself. A person who radiates confidence and compassion will be naturally beautiful. When you love the skin you’re in, it will shine through everything you do. Whether you go out on a date for Valentine’s Day, or stay in with your friends, never forget they love you for who you are, so there’s no reason to try to be someone you’re not.
