Winter is the season for pulling out your favorite cozy sweaters, spending more time at home, and enjoying the quiet snow. Many people pick up old hobbies and engage in new forms of learning. The cold temperatures and blustery weather often contribute to both self-reflection and self-improvement. For these and other reasons, winter is also the perfect season for considering the vast range of invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures. With the opportunity to focus on any necessary recoveries, and less exposure to sunlight, you can think about investing in rejuvenating skin procedures, skin-tightening treatments, and other aesthetic services for reversing the hands of time, evening out your complexion, and streamlining your physique. Following are four procedures and treatments to schedule this winter.

1. Create Your Ideal Body With CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is ideal for anyone who’s struggling to get rid of those last few stubborn pounds, but who isn’t willing to undergo an invasive procedure like liposuction. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting, also known as fat freezing or cryolipolysis, does not require any incisions or actual tissue removal. This procedure is instead performed by cooling unwanted fat to the point of crystallization. Once fat cells crystallize, they’re broken down and flushed out of the body, leaving the treated area leaner and more refined.

One of the greatest benefits of CoolSculpting is its ability to produce targeted fat removal in select areas. Given that natural weight loss efforts are only capable of producing uniform fat loss across the entire body, areas that are naturally predisposed to excess fat storage will remain disproportionately large even when significant pounds are lost with diet and exercise. CoolSculpting can target unwanted submental or under-chin fat to eliminate double chins. It can also eliminate excess fatty tissues at the backs of the arms, the lower abdominal area, and inner thighs. Best of all, fat-freezing is a simple, non-surgical procedure that requires absolutely no downtime and produces truly permanent results.

2. Take Advantage Of Skin Resurfacing Procedures

If you’re looking to brighten your complexion, eliminate dark spots and wrinkles, minimize fine lines and enlarged pores, or fight off recurring acne breakouts and the resulting scarring, skin resurfacing can be your best choice. Treatments like chemical peels, laser resurfacing, micro-needling, and microdermabrasion incite controlled damage at various levels of the skin. This in turn causes the body to react by expediting its normal production of collagen and new skin cells for gradual renewal across the treatment area. Given that many resurfacing procedures require patients to avoid direct sun exposure during the early and critical stages of healing, wintertime is the best time to use these treatments to even out your skin’s texture and tone, creating a healthier and more youthful-looking complexion overall.

3. Open Up Your Eyes, Lift Your Brow, Or Eliminate Loose, Sagging Skin

Loose, sagging skin is one of the more advanced signs of facial aging. This is also something that you might suffer from if you’ve recently experienced significant and fairly rapid weight loss. Brow lift procedures are perfect for opening up the eyes, tightening the upper and mid-face, and creating a more all-around youthful visage. If loose skin is impeding your vision or constantly makes you appear tired or angry, a brow lift combined with blepharoplasty can revitalize your appearance entirely. Facelift procedures have become increasingly less invasive and increasingly more appealing to people in their early to mid-50s. For those experiencing severe facial creasing or sagging, a facelift paired with a neck lift can create beautiful, seamless, and incredibly natural-looking results.

4. Check Out Our Impressive Range Of Cosmetic Injectables

Cosmetic injectables are capable of producing a vast range of aesthetic improvements. Moreover, they can do so with absolutely no cutting, risk of scarring, or downtime. Injectables like BOTOX are meant for instantly relaxing dynamic facial wrinkles in the upper and mid-face. In minutes, BOTOX can release tension in the expressive muscles that are responsible for crow’s feet, frown lines, and even smoker’s lines, or peri-oral wrinkles that radiate outwards from the mouth. Dermal fillers can restore lost facial volume to fill in creases at the nasolabial folds, marionette lines that travel from the outer corners of the mouth to the chin, and hollows at the cheeks. With instant results, short treatment times, and very few side effects, cosmetic injectables are ideal for anyone who’s looking to quickly freshen up before big holiday events.
