Make a Beautiful You for the Holidays

The holidays are coming, and everyone is getting ready for the best party days of the year! We all get ready for delicious food, vacations, family time, and gifts. But what about your skin and beauty routine for this holiday time?

It’s even more important to take care of skin and hair during this season because all the attention is somewhere else, and we need to prepare the beauty routine to look as good as we can, on those special days.

Modern society glorifies youth.  Society often associates negative shame with the concept of getting older. Often the older you get, the harder it is to maintain a positive body image. This can eat away at your self-esteem as you watch your physical appearance evolve over time.

FIRST and foremost, think about your body image and the many products and services available today to make yourself more attractive and beautiful no matter your age.  We are very lucky to live in this age of peels, injections, and stem cells, that are safe and give you absolutely amazing results.

Did you realize that feeling better about your appearance has an enormously beneficial effect on your self-esteem, success and even your overall health?  Do you have a negative body image and are you aware that negative feelings can leak into every area of your life?

Feeling good about your appearance, helps you to achieve positive self-esteem.  Believe it or not, positive self-esteem can actually help you to achieve greater success in your life and your career.  Positive self-esteem makes you self-confident – with the resilience to keep going, even when things are tough. And the best news is that when you feel better about yourself, people perceive you as being more beautiful.

If you find that you’re struggling with a negative body image, there are several ways that you can begin to ameliorate the situation.  Accept your body and forget about holding up unrealistic examples and expectations. We are all lucky that today, many advertisers and manufacturers are beginning to show, and even realize, that beautiful women come in all shapes and sizes.

Turn away from false standards, find out what there is to love about yourself, and then, find a good doctor or aesthetician to help enhance your parts that you love or that you can learn to love with a little “improvement.”

A positive body image can lead to high levels of self-esteem. Your positive feelings toward your body can foster confidence, develop your abilities, and help you feel happier. It can also spur you to take better care of your body, your face and your mind.

Of course, you’ll want to have the most qualified doctors apply these services so that you are confident in getting the best results possible.

And guess what a highly experienced and knowledgeable doctor is right around the corner.  Dr. Adrian de la Torre of DrTen20 located in Dana Point Orange County, California has more than 30 years’ of experience treating thousands of people, with hundreds of testimonials.  Don’t put your care in the hands of just anyone, but use an expert like Dr. de la Torre and his med spa. DrTen20 is offering many holiday specials where you can achieve the results that will make your holidays – Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year’s – beautiful and the best days of 2022 and even 2023.

Don’t worry; here is a Pre-Holiday Beauty Checklist to make all your holiday preparations easier, and your skin and hair will be thankful for this!



Dry skin is a common problem during the winter months when the skin is exposed to colder temperatures and lower levels of moisture in the air. In these cases, using moisturizer is good to soothe and eliminate dry-skin patches. Also, now it’s the right time to change your powder blush and powder bronzer for creams.  Liquid foundation and creams are perfect for getting rid of dry, flaky skin this season.

However, some people experience chronic, or long-lasting, dry skin and can benefit from some different treatments. Consider switching to a hypo-allergenic foundation that is made for aging skin that is made of all-natural ingredients that your skin will thank you for. If you start with a good base, your makeup will look better. If you’re having trouble getting your skin balanced DrTen20 is a good place to start with a FREE consultation with Dr. Adrian da la Torre.

In addition, if you feel that your age is really “showing” at this time and you want to do something about it…here are some great suggestions:

There are INJECTABLES & FILLERS.  These treatments which are available only by a physician will help to fill out any sunken areas of your face, add volume and fullness and smooth out wrinkles and other problem areas.  Injectables can smooth out wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet without undergoing surgery.  Some of these injectable fillers are:

  1. BOTOX: For smoother skin, many people turn to injectables like BOTOX® Cosmetic, to reduce frown lines and crow’s feet.
  2. JEUVEAU: Jeuveau is a relatively new type of “botulinum” injection used in the treatment of wrinkles (AKA the New Botox or “Newtox” for short). It’s made of the same active ingredient used in original Botox Cosmetic injections.
  3. RESTYLANE: Restylane can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
  4. There are other injectable fillers. The best approach is to go to a good med spa and seek out a real doctor with the knowledge and experience to ensure the best possible results. An experienced physician can work with you to determine what you want to accomplish and help you decide which products will work best for you and your skin type.  Do yourself a favor and avoid going to med spas where you don’t know who is going to be treating you.  de la Torre is a 5-star rated physician with over 30 years’ of experience.  His extensive experience with faces will get you the best results possible and avoid some of the nightmares that you might have heard about when these treatments are provided by less experienced providers.

In addition to the fillers, there are CHEMICAL PEELS that are used to treat skin at a variety of different skin depths with the goal of stimulating new skin growth and improving surface texture and appearance. Chemical peels can treat mild to moderate skin discoloration (age spots), and moderate to deep wrinkles and scars while improving the skin’s texture. There are “light” peels and “medium” peels, and a doctor or trained aesthetician can help you to decide which would be the best product to use for your skin.


Today, there is a relatively new product that can really help your eyes look brighter and healthier.  The product is called UPNEEQ. If you feel like you look “tired”, you may have a condition called “acquired blepharoptosis” (also known as acquired ptosis or low-lying lids).  People with this syndrome look as if they don’t have their eyelids open, and they seem to be drooping.

UPNEEQ is a prescription eyedrop that can be used at home.  It’s quick and easy to use and the results are fast and significant – even dramatic. And since a prescription is required, a doctor’s prescription is required.  That is necessary since the product might interfere with other prescribed medicines – however, it’s easy at DrTen20 where you can get a complimentary appointment and an assessment regarding all our anti-aging treatments that you might want to consider.


Are you struggling with hair loss?  During the holidays, you may be invited to a number of parties and it is depressing to discover that you have bald spots or a receding hairline that are aggravating and so hard to correct with over-the-counter products.

Scientists have recently discovered that stem cell Interleukins can completely regrow hair. Unlike other hair solutions, Stem Cell Interleukin Hair Regrowth Treatments are simple: when stem cell Interleukins are implanted into hair follicles, new hair grows from them. Regenerative medicine (the use of your own Stem Cells) is a very good approach. It’s all about helping the body repair itself when it wouldn’t otherwise have the ability to do. By replacing dead hair follicles with living ones and adding human growth factors to the scalp’s makeup, physicians can jump-start the growth process and fight baldness.

In addition to stem cells, the Holidays are the perfect time to change your hair color, haircut, or add some highlights to your hairstyle. Anything to help you feel better about your appearance which boosts your self-confidence and most importantly, improves the way you carry yourself and feel about yourself.


Try your best to eat healthily during the Holidays. And of course, try to eat less although this is nearly impossible with all the food and goodies available.  With all the holiday preparations, it could be normal to forget to drink enough water, so make sure you get a nice, BPA-free reusable water bottle that you can always keep next to you to serve as a reminder to drink enough water during the day. A beautiful idea is to get a glass portable bottle that has a natural quartz quality stone inside.

Until now med spa treatments have addressed beauty and health issues from the outside in. But treating yourself from the inside out instantly reduces the signs of aging, increases energy levels, supports your immune system, and can even help you recover from a rough night on the town.

Today, there are a number of other ways to take care of your body.  Available for your health are IV TREATMENTS.  IV therapy is a method of administering fluids into the body via the blood vessels, and it’s the fastest way to deliver essential nutrients to your body.  Vitamins and nutrients are delivered directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your digestive tract. There’s no wait time for the benefits of an IV treatment, and because of this, the customized nutrition boost is instantly available to heal and nurture your body.

At Dr. de la Torre’s med spa, he offers a variety of different IV TREATMENTS for a variety of concerns such as Immunity, Anti-aging, Hydration and Beauty, to name just a few.  You can discuss your health concerns with the doctor, and come up with a “cocktail” of vitamins and nutrients that will be right for you and that will give you an immediate boost.  These treatments are great for this time of year when things are stressful and you may be feeling especially tired.  Wake up and feel great!

PAIN:  One more thought:  if you have pain, whether mild, acute or chronic, it is difficult, if not impossible, to handle all the things that need your attention during the Holidays if you are hurting all the time.  Now, stem cells have been shown to help PAIN problems. There are 65 million people in the U.S. suffering from back pain – but today, there is a potential solution.  Now, Stem Cell Interleukins can provide a real solution for some patients. The Interleukins are injected into the painful area. They produce a powerful anti-inflammatory effect and stimulate the body’s repair processes. It’s the ground-breaking, cutting-edge way to resolve chronic pain.

  • $100 off any Fille
  • r$50 off a Chemical Peel

Final thoughts on a successful Holiday Season:
