Start the New Year Right With These 5 Cosmetic Treatments
December 17, 2020
The holiday season is hectic, no matter how prepared you think you are. That’s why it’s important that you don’t forget about yourself in all of the hustle and bustle and do something that will allow you to kick off the new year feeling fresh and rejuvenated.
If you’ve been thinking about starting the new year with a brand new you, here are five quick and easy cosmetic treatments guaranteed to improve your appearance. We’ll also include a suggested timeline if you want to get a quick treatment to get ready for New Year’s Eve.
If You Have a Month or More…
Those with more time for minimally invasive cosmetic treatments have their choice of any available treatment out there, but particularly treatments where more time is needed to show results.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, surgery-free fat reduction treatment that works to eliminate those stubborn areas of fat you haven’t been able to get rid of with diet and exercise. The treatment works by using cooling technology to freeze the fat underneath the skin, eliminating those fat cells permanently as the body metabolizes them. Problem areas targeted—think saddlebags, abdominal fat, or love handles—are based on your personalized treatment plan and goals.
Most patients will see results within three weeks after a CoolSculpting treatment, although it can take up to two months for the best results. Expect some sensitivity in the week after your treatment. You can expect a 20-25% reduction of fat in the targeted areas within one to three months.
Cosmetic laser treatment
If you resolved to step into 2021 with refreshed and rejuvenated skin, we have just the thing. From fractional laser resurfacing and Titan™ laser treatments to carbon laser facials, SDBotox offers a wide range of laser resurfacing procedures that will leave your skin looking and feeling flawless. Laser treatment benefits include smoother skin texture, a reduction in wrinkles, naturally producing collagen, and an even out skin tone. In just weeks, you’ll take years off your skin, leaving you glowing from the inside out. Though there’s minimal downtime for these laser treatments (a huge perk!), we recommend a series of applications spaced over four weeks to see the best results.
You may be wondering if laser procedures are safe for every type of skin. Well, we have great news! Cosmetic laser treatments do vary in strength, but they’re suitable for every skin tone and texture. The expert team at SDBotox will advise you on the best treatment plan based on the results you’re looking for.
There’s a reason why you’ve heard about the benefits of microneedling over the last few years. This minimally invasive treatment does wonders for the health and appearance of skin all over the body. This is why it’s one of our favorite procedures to look your best in the new year. Microneedling creates tiny, virtually painless punctures on the skin’s surface to boost collagen and rejuvenate your skin. You’ll leave your appointment with plumped, silky soft skin, and over time, you’ll notice a reduction in fine lines and scars and an improvement in texture.
Healthy skin is happy skin. Microneedling also allows for ever-important moisturizers and products to absorb better. This procedure can supercharge your skincare routine, especially when paired with your favorite creams and serums.
Results for microneedling are immediate, but you’ll see the best outcome after four treatments done over a month. But remember, your skin may appear pink and sensitive for the first few days after the procedure, so plan accordingly if you have any special NYE celebrations to attend.
If You Have Two Weeks or More…
Two weeks or more before a big event will give you an increased buffer if your skin needs to heal following a treatment.
Botox injections remain one of the most popular quick, and easy cosmetic treatments out there for a reason. If you’re looking for a temporary fix for crow’s feet, fine lines, or a furrowed brow, Botox is a non-surgical way to improve your appearance and give you a youthful glow. Botox works by paralyzing the muscles that create wrinkles, and with repeated treatments, reduces the appearance of lines in targeted areas.
While most will see results within four to seven days of a Botox treatment, SDBotox suggests scheduling your appointment two weeks before a special event like New Year’s Eve to allow for any potential bruising or swelling to heal ahead of that event.
Dermal filler injections are popular among quick and easy cosmetic treatments for the immediate improvements patients see following their fillers. Depending on the treatment area and type of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers used in a treatment, results can plump up a lip, eliminate laugh lines, or add volume to the face where it needs it.
Results with dermal fillers are immediate, but patients see the best results within a few days after a treatment. SDBotox suggests booking an appointment for dermal fillers two weeks before any special events to allow the filler to settle. That will also give time for any potential bruising or swelling to heal. How long your fillers will last is dependent on the type of filler used, but patients can expect to go 9-24 months between treatments.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a long-term solution to the cycle of plucking, tweezing, and shaving unwanted hair. As you’ll need several treatments at set intervals after starting laser hair removal, it’s best to start the process sooner rather than later, with initial results expected at about the two-week mark.
Treatments are customized based on a patient’s skin color and hair texture, one of the big pros of laser hair removal. Expect some skin sensitivity for the first few days after a treatment, and we recommend that patients avoid sun exposure for the two weeks after sessions. Most patients need between three to six laser hair removal treatments at intervals recommended by their technician to eliminate hair in targeted areas.
If You Have a Week or Less…
If you only have a week at most before a big event or want an instant boost, you still have options for quick and easy cosmetic treatments that will show an immediate result.
A hydrafacial treatment is a facial rejuvenation treatment that leaves the skin looking clean and hydrated. One procedure will clear out any impurities in the pores, but over time, additional treatments can lead to a reduction in the appearance of fine lines in the face, a smoother skin texture, and a more even skin tone. Available add-ons for patients needing a more intense treatment can target more problematic areas on the skin, such as brown spots or rough patches.
The more immediate results of a hydrafacial treatment—smoother, hydrated skin—will last at least a week, but multiple treatments are recommended for patients who want long-lasting results. A big plus of this treatment is that you can leave the office that day with no downtime and beautiful results.
