The holiday season brings lots of festivities and is often the time for visiting friends and family. Naturally, everyone wants to look their best for holiday parties and family photos. However, the holidays are also the perfect time to schedule cosmetic procedures. Whether you have been considering non-surgical or surgical treatments, here’s why winter may be the time to see them through.
Non-Surgical Treatments for the Holidays
The winter is a great time for non-surgical treatments because these treatments require little to no downtime. You can schedule these treatments just a few weeks before your family visits or holiday gatherings and enjoy beautiful results just in time for the festivities. Dermal fillers and injectables are incredibly popular during the holidays, as they help patients reduce lines and wrinkles that have been developing all year. The winter is also a perfect time for laser resurfacing and other laser treatments because there is less harsh sunlight around to damage sensitive, recently treated skin. However, patients considering laser treatments may want to plan their treatment at least a few weeks before their holiday events to ensure that the skin fully recovers.
Surgical Treatments for the Holidays
The holidays are also a great time for plastic surgery treatments because everyone gets time away from work and school. Many surgical procedures require patients to take time off of work while they recover. During the winter, you don’t have to worry about missing as much work and will have plenty of time to relax and heal. You can also use warm clothing to hide any swelling that may be present following your surgery. Of course, another benefit is that receiving treatment during the winter will ensure that you are ready to show off your results by the time that swimsuit season rolls around!
