It’s that time of year again to start thinking about your New Year’s resolutions and how you can kick off 2019 with a great start. If you’ve been thinking about treating yourself to a cosmetic treatment or two, what better time than now to get your appointment in the books? These four popular treatments can help you ring in the New Year with a bang.

1. NeoGraft® Hair Restoration

NeoGraft® hair restoration has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for men, although women can also benefit from this cutting-edge technology. This FDA-cleared hair restoration treatment is able to transplant real hair follicles without requiring sutures or staples.

So how does NeoGraft work? This technique uses a method called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) to harvest hair follicles from areas where hair growth is thicker, usually from the back of your head. This process is done using pneumatic pressure to carefully extract hair grafts in groups of 1 to 4 follicles. Those follicles are then manually transplanted to the thinning area to create a seamless, natural look.

Your NeoGraft procedure will not require any incisions or scalpels.

2. Laser Skin Treatments

Could your complexion use a little pick-me-up before the year’s end? Whether you’re bothered by dull winter skin, acne scars, wrinkles or sun damage, laser skin resurfacing and other laser rejuvenation treatments may be able to help.

If you’re looking for a laser treatment that doesn’t require downtime but can still leave your skin looking and feeling brighter, more youthful and refreshed, IPL could be the most appropriate option. IPL photofacials are great for women and men who want a brighter and more even skin tone and texture. These treatments are generally quick and easy, and you can get right back to holiday festivities directly after your appointment.

Laser skin resurfacing can help to erase years of sun damage, acne scars, lines and wrinkles and other skin imperfections. There are two types of laser skin resurfacing: ablative and non-ablative.

Ablative lasers remove the top layer of your skin, which translates to some downtime and about a ten-day recovery period.  Non-ablative lasers, on the other hand, reach the underlying layers of skin by delivering tiny columns of light into your skin, thus eliminating the need to remove the outer layer. Therefore, non-ablative laser skin resurfacing would be the better choice if you prefer less of a recovery period and no downtime.

3. Laser Hair Removal

The holiday season is one of the best times of year to start laser hair removal treatments. Not only will you be less tempted to head out into the sunshine and relax by the pool in the winter, but you’ll also be able to start enjoying your results by summer if you start now.

Laser hair removal gradually treats unwanted hair over the course of several sessions, each spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart. The number of sessions you will need will depend on the size and location of the treatment area.

4. Facelift

When nonsurgical cosmetic treatments are unable to provide you with the comprehensive and long-lasting results you are looking for, surgical options like a facelift may be the best solution. Many people have extra time away from work and other obligations over the holidays, making this a convenient time of year to schedule your facelift. Sit down with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options and help you decide if you could be a good candidate for a facelift.
