Cosmetic Procedures for the Holidays

The weather’s getting cooler, the days are getting shorter, and the leaves are changing colors. Fall is now in full swing, which means the holiday season can’t be far behind. Most of us look forward to the holidays as a chance to celebrate, enjoy the company of family and friends, and eat delicious food. But have you ever considered that this time of year is also an ideal opportunity to get cosmetic procedures? Here are the top three treatments we recommend heading into the holidays.

1. Laser Treatments

Many people associate fall with hayrides, apple picking, and pumpkin spice-flavored everything. But in the world of aesthetic medicine, fall is laser season. At Dermatology Medical Group of San Francisco, our experts often recommend getting laser skin treatments like Fraxel®, V-BEAM, IPL, and Clear + Brilliant® during the colder months. That’s because sun sensitivity is one of the side effects of laser treatments, and you’re more likely to stay indoors and avoid exposure to UV rays during the fall and winter.


Like having a real-life airbrush for your skin, lasers can improve flaws such as sun damage, uneven tone and texture, wrinkles, and enlarged pores and leave you with a smooth, clear complexion. And, because you might need more than one session for maximum results, scheduling your laser treatment now is the ideal timing to get immaculate skin by the holidays.

2. Dermal Fillers

Injectable dermal fillers have become one of the most sought-after treatments we offer. They provide a nonsurgical, zero-downtime solution to age-related volume loss in the cheeks, lips, temples, and tear troughs and can also minimize wrinkles around the mouth and lips. You can enjoy nearly immediate results with minimal side effects in one quick and relatively painless in-office appointment. If you get your fillers in the week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, you’ll look your best for NYE parties and ring in 2021 in style.

3. Kybella®

If you have a double chin, you already know it’s an unwanted guest that ruins your selfies and makes you feel self-conscious during video chats. Submental fat that’s genetic, rather than weight-related, can make you look older or heavier than you are. If you’re tired of wearing turtleneck sweaters and strategically arranging scarves to hide your double chin, Kybella® is your ideal solution.


As the world’s first and only FDA-approved treatment for stubborn submental fat, Kybella® uses a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid to break down and destroy fat cells. After a series of Kybella® treatments, your double chin will finally be gone – never to return. If you have family members you only see during the holidays, you can surprise them with your newly smooth, tightened, and defined chin and jawline.
