Giving a gift that is both useful and thoughtful is more difficult than it sounds. When it comes to your closest loved ones, you undoubtedly want to give something that is special and well-received, but that’s a narrow category and one that gets even smaller after taking into account the recipient’s likes, interests, and your own budget. Perhaps you find yourself falling back into the same old gift ideas each year, and now you are looking for a way to mix things up. In any case, cosmetic treatments could be just the option you need and what almost everyone secretly wants.
Why do Cosmetic Treatments Make Good Gifts?
When we look our best, we feel our best, and for many that means fighting back lines and wrinkles or combating problem areas such as thin lips or sagging facial skin. In years past, addressing such concerns meant undergoing surgical procedures such as facelifts or liposuction or putting faith in unproven products. Thankfully, that is no longer the case. Today, looking one’s best is often just an FDA-approved injection away. Fillers and relaxers have taken over as not only a simpler, more affordable option for maintaining youthful glowing skin, but they deliver more natural looking results as well. For the special someone on your list this holiday season, consider the following three popular treatment options:
Botox as a Holiday Gift
Botox has become the gold standard among cosmetic injectables. Although smoothing lines and wrinkles may not have been the intended purpose initially, this relaxer has made a name for itself as a safe and incredibly effective treatment option. When injected in the right areas and in the proper amounts by a professional such as a dentist, the results are smooth, beautiful, glowing, wrinkle-free, skin that lasts for months at a time.
Juvederm as a Holiday Gift
Juvederm has a collection of fillers with each formulation serving a different purpose. Whether it’s lines and wrinkles, hollowing cheeks, or thin lips that are the source of dissatisfaction, Juvederm offers an FDA-approved product to help. Results are reliable and natural in both look and feel. These products can last from a year to two depending on the location and product. Even better, patients who are seeking lip fillers needn’t worry about permanence should they not like the results. Because Juvederm is composed of hyaluronic acid, it is easily “erased” with an enzyme injection.
Microneedling as a Holiday Gift
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure designed to thicken the skin and reduce common signs of aging by promoting the production of collagen and elastin. Microneedling is performed with the use of a tool or pen with 11 tiny needles at the tip. These needles are used to create micro-punctures in the skin’s surface. In response, the body treats these punctures as wounds and ramps up cell turnover, collagen, and elastin in an effort to heal them. With a series of 4-6 microneedling treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, most patients can achieve optimal results with noticeable improvement in skin’s elasticity and smoothness. This is just one of many services that can be purchased for a gift of beauty at Kelly’s Laser Aesthetics.
