Why the Holidays Are the Best Time to Have Cosmetic Treatments

Most of us associate the holiday season with good company, delicious food, gift-giving, and enjoying shared traditions. But at our San Francisco dermatology clinic, we often see a spike in the number of people scheduling their cosmetic treatments at the end of the year. What makes the holidays an ideal time to get popular procedures such as injectables and laser skin resurfacing?


1. You’ll Look Your Best for Any Celebration

Whether you’re looking forward to a quiet get-together with family or planning to attend a glitzy, glamorous party, you’ll love it more when you know you’re putting your best face forward with neuromodulators like Botox® to erase wrinkles like crow’s feet and brow furrows. The holidays may be the only time of year you get to see some of your loved ones, so why not look great for those family photos and impromptu selfies?


2. You Can Reward Yourself

The holiday season can be a whirl of cooking, entertaining, decorating, and picking out the perfect presents for others. Amid all these festivities, don’t forget to get yourself a gift, too! You work hard all year long to fulfill so many different obligations, but now it’s time to treat yourself to minimally invasive anti-aging procedures like microdermabrasion and dermal fillers. You can celebrate the end of 2020 and ring in 2021 with a renewed appearance and finally say goodbye to facial flaws like wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin tone and texture.


3. You Will Have Time to Enjoy Your Results

Even if you have a busy schedule for the rest of the year, the holidays represent an opportunity for many people to slow down. If you get the chance to enjoy a week or two of vacation, you can take advantage of it by scheduling cosmetic procedures that require some recovery time, like a deep chemical peel or hair transplant surgery. Even if you choose one of our many no-downtime treatments, such as CoolSculpting® or Ultherapy®, you can use the break to appreciate your results to the fullest.


4. You’ll Be Indoors More

The cooler temperatures and shorter days of the holiday season can often work in your favor after some cosmetic procedures. Treatments like laser skin resurfacing with Fraxel® will make your skin more sensitive to the sun, and you’ll need to be careful to avoid exposure to sunlight. That’s why we refer to fall and winter as “laser season.” This time of year, when we tend to congregate indoors and stay out of the sun, can be the ideal occasion to recover from a laser procedure.
