Cosmetic Treatments Overview
Getting ready for a big trip goes beyond putting clothes in a suitcase or picking out a hotel. Going on a trip means seeing new things and encountering new people; potentially important people.
And while first impressions aren’t everything, they can be pretty close to everything. So, why go on a big, potentially life-changing trip looking tired and worn out? This is the question on the mind of the countless patients that visit their local cosmetic dermatologists to get ready for their big trip.
But what exactly should one get treated with and how are these procedures going to help them with their trip? This is the question we’re looking to answer and give you a few suggestions on what you can enhance, tone, and freshen up before heading out on your journey.
1. Sculpt the Body Ahead of Time
Definitely do not leave this one on short notice. Coolsculpting is a fat reduction procedure that makes use of fat freezing as are great ways to reduce fat in specific areas of the body. The one catch is that these body contouring procedures do work rather slowly since they rely on your body’s natural abilities.
The fat-freezing applicators can target precise areas of the body that you wish to tone and reduce the fat in those areas. And while this will take some time, you will see a gradual improvement as the fat slowly deteriorates. 
Going on a trip means being physically active, as you move from different parts of a new city, hitch a ride to cross a long stretch of barren land, or even climb rocky terrain. You’ll need to feel comfortable in your body to get through all these physical challenges. For example, if there is too much fat on the inner area of your thighs and you happen to be wearing shorts, the thigh skin is going to be constantly rubbing against each other. This isn’t too bad at first, but then you realize that the skin is getting irritated and that it is getting uncomfortable to do something as simple as walking.
Let’s not overcomplicate things on your trip by needing to purchase skincare products just so you can walk comfortably. By burning the fat on the inner thighs, you can leave your thigh gap free of skin irritation and enjoy taking long walks wherever it is the road takes you.
2. Freshening Up and Staying Strong
Your body burns through a lot of nutrients and important resources very quickly. So, before you know it, your body and skin have run out of all the necessary building blocks that keep them strong and resilient, as well as looking young and fresh.
If only there was an injection that contained all the necessary vitamins, hormones, and even herbal elements which would give you a dosage of just about everything you need for your body to look and feel strong. There is and it’s called the Mesotherapy injection.
While most cosmetic injections you find on the market are going to smooth out wrinkles or burn through fat, Mesotherapy focuses on the internal health of your skin and aims to strengthen and rejuvenate it using a specialized injection. The ingredients inside this injection are adapted to your needs, so depending on what your body requires a little boost of, this injection can be customized to fit that order. 
Perfect for a general refresher, but even better for someone looking to have a fresh and vibrant appearance throughout their trip. And with results coming in at around 2 months, you can get treated right before you go.
3. The Double Chin Solution
Trips are all about making memories and a great way to save these memories is with photos and selfies. We love taking them and we love looking back on them fondly, remembering the good times we’ve had.
Unfortunately, not everyone is happy to look at their photos. Some people complain about how they had their eyes closed, others complain about their hair being messy, or makeup looking uneven. But a major reason for disappointment among many people is the double chin.
You might not see it in person, but the double chin tends to pop up and ruin some of the best photos and selfies. So, to fight back against the dreaded double chin, there are a variety of cosmetic solutions. You can always try out the aforementioned Coolsculpting which can target the area around the neck and under the chin to freeze the fat in those areas. 
But if you want something faster and don’t mind a few injections, there’s Kybella. According to the study, Kybella is an injection for fat elimination that uses a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. 
While the procedure can be a little uncomfortable, even painful sometimes, it’s worth going through it once you see the results of the treatment.
The compound burns through the fat after 3 to 4 sessions of Kybella, leaving behind a smooth neck and chin area. After 2 months, you will see a huge difference in the smoothness of your double chin and you’ll be ready to take as many photos as your heart desires.
Preparing for a trip is the best way to ensure that you’ll have a great time and will make some truly fantastic memories. It’s easy to overlook the preparation process and leave everything up to chance, which can be fun in its own right. But it’s much better to know what you’re getting yourself into. And it is also important to have control over your body and appearance.
Thanks to the many cosmetic solutions we have today, you won’t have to worry about settling with what you have and living with the cards you’ve been dealt. If you don’t like something about your appearance, change it, enhance it, accentuate, and improve it. What better way to celebrate your future adventures and trips than by giving yourself the makeover you deserve?
