To ensure you look your holiday best, here are some cosmetic treatments for the holidays and New Year.

As the holidays approach and party plans start to take shape, both men and women are scheduling cosmetic procedures to ensure everyone looks their holiday best.  Gift certificates are also proving popular stocking stuffers.

Top cosmetic treatments for the holidays

Among the top five pre-holiday procedures individuals seek include:

  • Injectables like Botox and Fillers (i.e., Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra)
  • Skin rejuvenation with laser therapy
  • Laser hair removal
  • Skin tightening with Ultherapy
  • Fat reduction treatments

Injectables – Botox and dermal fillers like Juvederm

While among the most popular cosmetic procedures year-round, injectables such as Botox and Dysport and fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are highly sought after cosmetic treatments for the holidays. These simple procedures take little time to perform in the office and produce quick results. Botox results appear within 5 to 14 days eliminating a furrowed brow and forehead lines, reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, smile and lip lines, as well as lifting brows and more. Results last for approximately 3 to 4 months.

Most dermal filler results are immediate to add volume, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, subtly plump the lips, and more. Results last for up to 18 months. Sculptra is also a dermal filler used to add volume, with results appearing over time.

Skin rejuvenation with laser therapy

Enhanced skin rejuvenation laser therapy helps shed the visible wear of the past year, reinvigorating sun-damaged skin and reducing visibility of age spots, lentigines and facial telangiectasia. Patients with photo-damage and photo-aging often benefit from this type of procedure.

Skin Rejuvenation Laser Therapy Specifically Addresses:

  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles
  • Photo-aging
  • Lentigines and facial telangiectasia
  • Vascular and pigment irregularities

Using the laser on the entire face during treatment, patients typically see clearing of sun damage, wrinkle improvement as collagen forms and overall younger looking skin appears over time. Results vary based on the type of laser and number of treatments. Optimal benefits may require three to eight treatments. The Halo, Moxi, GlacialRX, BBL (broadband light) and CoolPeel are all popular laser treatments offered at many MedSpa and dermatological treatment centers.

Laser hair removal

Hair removal procedures are very popular in preparation for skin baring holiday styles. Utilizing the latest in laser hair removal technology, registered nurses and technicians safely remove hair by heating the area at the base of the hair shaft, preventing hair regrowth.

The laser procedure targets the pigment in the hair follicle, which works best on darker hair, and must be performed during a specific phase in the hair’s growth cycle (active or anagen phase). Multiple treatments are typically required and vary with each individual and by body site being treated.

Skin tightening and lifting with Ultherapy

Ultherapy treatments are popular procedures in the aesthetic industry. Using ultrasound energy, Ultherapy is safe for all skin types and can treat the face, neck, and chest areas, giving the skin a firmer, more lifted and more youthful appearance. There is no down time and results improve over the months following treatment.

Fat reduction – CoolSculpting and Kybella

Kybella is an injectable fat reduction treatment for the area under the chin. Many turn to Kybella to say bye-bye to a double chin or turkey waddle for an improved profile. I can take a series of treatments for optimal results.

CoolSculpting Elite is an advanced technology that uses freezing technology to eliminate fat cells from the body. Fat cells in treatment areas are frozen and naturally eliminated from the body in the following three months after treatment. CoolSculpting is used to treat nine areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, back, bra area, under the chin, the waist, and under the buttocks.

Since these treatments can take some time to see results, it’s best to pursue them a few months ahead of the holidays or use them to reach your New Year’s goals early in the year.
