As the holidays quickly approach, many gift-givers are looking for unique presents to give to their loved ones. Though gifts such as clothing, jewelry, makeup, and shoes are often good choices to put under the tree, many people don’t think of cosmetic treatments as appropriate gifts as well. Cosmetic treatments, however, are affordable gifts to give and are often appreciated by the right recipient. Here are some reasons why cosmetic treatments should be on your radar this holiday season, who you should consider buying them for, and some of the many options available.
Why Cosmetic Treatments Make Good Gifts
Cosmetic treatments make great gifts for the right people, especially since many women and men won’t spend the money to pamper themselves or take good care of their skin. When you give the gift of a cosmetic treatment, you’re telling the recipient that they are worth the time and money to treat themselves and their skin right! You can either give a specific treatment or you can give them a gift certificate so they can choose the treatment of their choice.
Who to Buy Cosmetic Treatments For
Cosmetic treatments make perfect gifts for spouses as well as ideal presents for good friends, family members, and adult children. When giving them as a gift, make sure you emphasize that you want your loved one to relax and pamper themselves. This is a gift of relaxation and rejuvenation and one that will pay dividends for months or even years into the future.
Type of Cosmetic Treatments Available
Depending on the unique needs and preferences of your loved one, you can give them a number of different treatments that will be perfect for them. We recommend bringing them in for a consultation to ensure they receive the treatment they really want and need. If you want to keep the element of surprise, gift certificates can go a long way. Here are the cosmetic treatments offered by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Matt Hershcovitch.
Dermal fillers are innovative injectable substances that can lift jowls, contour sagging cheeks, and soften fine lines and deeper wrinkles in areas such as around the mouth and on the forehead. Dr. Hershcovitch offers a procedure called the liquid facelift that is ideal for those who want long-lasting, noticeable results without surgery. There is no recovery and no downtime required by a liquid facelift—just amazing rejuvenation!
It’s possible to restore and revive the skin without surgery. With laser resurfacing, Dr. Hershcovitch uses non-invasive fractionated CO2 laser energy to delve deep into the skin and help restore it to a more youthful form. This is a more comfortable treatment than traditional laser resurfacing procedures, and patients generally need little to no recovery. Results include younger, clearer skin that is free of blemishes and evenly toned.
Chemical peels are perfect for those who want to reduce a wide range of aging signs such as dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. Dr. Hershcovitch uses a 35% tricholoacetic acid peel that does not bleach skin and can be used on all parts of the face including around the mouth and eyes. It has proven effective in treating conditions such as dark under-eye circles, sun spots, and melasma as well as the wrinkles and fine lines that come with aging. There is some downtime with chemical peels that is similar to dealing with a sunburn, but patients are usually back to their normal routines within a few days.
You may not have heard the term ‘neuromodulators,’ but you’ve certainly heard the word Botox. Botox is just one of the injectable neuromodulators that Dr. Hershcovitch can use to target expression lines that comes from years of muscle contractions. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin can be injected into certain muscles to relax them and gradually minimize lines and wrinkles. Though many people worry about their face being paralyzed or looking mask-like after having these types of injections, Dr. Hershcovitch’s years of experience have shown him exactly which muscles to target to achieve a natural and youthful result.
Cosmetic treatments make unique and useful gifts for the right person on your holiday list. If you’re considering buying a treatment as a present, contact board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matt Hershcovitch to find the perfect option.
