January is the perfect time to make your beauty resolutions for the new year. Just like many of us make resolutions to improve our fitness and eat better, achieving our anti-aging goals by developing and committing to a plan is equally important when wanting to look and feel our best. To complement your New Year’s resolution for a better, younger-looking you, read on for some beauty tips that will help you along the way!

1. Understand Your Concerns And What You Can Do To Improve Them
Many of us have skin care concerns that we don’t fully understand. Why is our skin behaving the way it is? What can we do to improve our appearance? Whether your suffering from dry, dehydrated skin, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores and/or fine lines and wrinkles, so much of our time and money is spent masking these conditions with lotions and potions rather than finding effective solutions that will help us look and feel better.

Visiting a Skin Care Specialist and/or Aesthetic Nurse Injector for a Complimentary Consultation can help you understand what is causing your skin issues and what steps you need to take to improve your condition and enhance your overall appearance. When you meet with our Aesthetic Patient Consultant at APT, we provide you with a VISIA Complexion Analysis at no charge. This revolutionary skin system generates high-quality, digital images of your skin to accurately measure your skin’s health by assessing and measuring the amount of sun damage to your skin as well as facial wrinkles, pores, skin pigmentation and tone. This customized analysis provides a solid basis on which to build an individually-tailored anti-aging treatment plan and skin care program that fits your specific timeline and budget.

2. Plan Your Treatment According To Your Needs & Lifestyle
When addressing the many signs of aging, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. A combination of treatments planned throughout the year according to your lifestyle and budget will generally get you the best results possible. If sun damage and/or hyperpigmentation are your biggest concern, starting off with the best skin care regime comprised of medical-grade skin care products is usually the first recommendation. Many people choose to schedule their laser treatments such as Halo™ and BBL™ in the fall and winter when they aren’t spending as much time outdoors. If you’re looking to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles achieve a perfect pout, or restore lost volume in your cheeks, Botox and dermal fillers can be performed during the same visit to give you the best result. With a customized anti-aging treatment plan in hand and scheduling your treatments in advance, achieving your beauty goals will be easier than you think!

3. Take Steps To Maintain Your Results
Maintenance is part of any self-improvement plan and with consistency, it doesn’t require much effort at all! Once you have achieved your anti-aging goals, be sure to visit your Medical Aesthetician and Nurse Injector regularly for follow up. This will help you maintain your results and be proactive with respect to any future skin concerns that arise. Being consistent with a solid, at-home skin care routine is also essential in maintaining your new, youthful appearance and glowing complexion. This includes taking your make-up off EVERY night, washing your makeup brushes regularly and applying high-quality, medical-grade skin care products in the AM and PM such as those offered by Vivier and Neocutis.
