5 Ways to Combat the Havoc of Holiday Stress on Your Skin

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…and the most hectic and stressful time of the year. While stress is prevalent in all our lives, too much stress can really take a toll on our physical health causing fine lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging. Dr. Scott Gerrish of Scottsdale-based IYA Med is sharing five non-invasive treatments that will help combat signs of aging this holiday season and keep you looking wonderful.


Moisturizers and hyaluronic acids are a great option to help plump and hydrate your skin during the cooler winter months when your skin tends to be dry. Retina-A is also a great topical that helps promote skin health by improving micro-circulation, reverse sun damage, as well as build collagen to soften fine lines and rejuvenate the skin. Topical Vitamin C has an antiaging effect by increasing collagen production and decreasing collagen breakdown. Lastly, peptide creams send signals to your skin to build more collagen.

Hollywood Laser Peel

The Hollywood Laser Peel offered at IYA Med gives dramatic results with a quick session that requires no downtime. This treatment is a three-step process that begins with a topical carbon applied to the skin. Once the carbon absorbs into the top layers of the skin, the laser gently heats and removes the carbon, taking with it pore debris and dead skin cells. The gentle procedure helps counter the appearance of aging, damaged skin by evening skin tone and reducing the appearance of pigment, fine lines, and acne scars. The Hollywood Laser Peel can be performed alone but works best when you have several treatments over a period of time.

BOTOX® Injections and Fillers

BOTOX® is one of the most popular and most performed treatments for reversing the visible signs of aging. BOTOX® blocks the communication of the nerve and the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. With a few simple injections of BOTOX®, you can dramatically soften the appearance of worry lines, frown lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles.

Dermal fillers are safe and natural cosmetic treatments that instantly restore volume and fullness to the face to correct moderate to severe wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance. Fillers can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime. There are a variety of injectable filler treatments, learn more and determine which treatment may be best for you here.


Micro-needling gently and naturally stimulates the regeneration of collagen and elastin to address scars, skin texture, fine lines, and wrinkles. Micro-needling can be applied to the face, neck, decollete, abdomen, arms, knees and thighs.
