Give the Gift of Skin Care

Consider Cosmetic Dermatology this Holiday Season

Gift-giving can be one of the most joyous and also the most stressful aspects of the holiday season. On the one hand, it feels good to give loved ones a present and watch as they light up while unwrapping and unboxing something you spent time and money on. On the other hand, it is incredibly nerve-wracking trying to uncover the mystery that is someone else’s wants and desires. You never want to become the fruit-cake lady or the person with the bad present ideas. Thankfully, there are sincere and good-hearted gifts that are nearly universal. Skincare gifts can show someone that you care about their health and well-being.

Gifting skin treatments may be precisely what people want, especially if they have been making sidebar comments about not looking as young as they once did or complaining about sagging and wrinkly skin. If you can think of someone in your life who would appreciate such thoughtfulness, then consider these five gift ideas.

 

1. Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin rejuvenation can be perfect for someone who suffers from skin irregularities. This procedure is excellent for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes or even acne scars. The process involves the precise placement of concentrated, pulsating beams that remove the affected skin layer by layer. While this may not be the first consideration for skincare gifts, it can make a significant difference in the lives of many individuals.

 

2. Juvederm

Another option for skincare gifts is a Juvederm treatment. A hyaluronic acid dermal filler, Juvederm is perfect for temporarily correcting facial wrinkles or folds that may be considered moderate or severe. Unfortunately, the procedure is only temporary, but it lasts anywhere from nine months to one year.

 

3. Sclerotherapy

Do you have an older loved one who suffers from varicose or spider veins? Such a condition can be uncomfortable, even Sclerotherapy is a proven method for treating small varicose veins. Using a salt solution, the treatment is injected directly into the vein to help collapse it and force the blood to clot.

 

4. Botox

Like Juvederm, Botox is another type of facial injectable or filler. As skincare gifts go, Botox has been in use for years and proven effective in the treatment of wrinkles and facial creases.

 

5. Gift Cards

While the options above can make excellent holiday presents for a loved one, you may not know which is the right treatment to choose. If a trip to the dermatologist may be what your friend or loved one is hoping for but you aren’t sure what their exact wishes are, then purchase gift cards for skin treatments. To avoid your loved one having to pay any extra out of pocket, it is a good idea to know some common treatment values:

  • $250 for anti-aging treatments
  • $500 for Botox or fillers
  • $1,000+ for more involved procedures

 

Skincare gifts may not be the most traditional holiday presents, but your loved ones may well appreciate them more than another pair of socks or a garish sweater. If you are considering gifting one of the above treatments, then contact Windsor Dermatology, a leader in the industry, for a consultation and recommendations.
