Gone are the days when a pair of socks or a box of chocolates would suffice as Christmas presents. Modern women want something more for the holiday season. They want beauty treatments and cosmetic enhancements.
Clinics and health spas that offer them have seen a surge in the number of people purchasing treatments to give as gifts — so many, in fact, that many clinics are now offering gift cards.
Family members try a treatment for themselves and pass on the gift to another, wanting them to experience the same benefits. Husbands, too, choose a cosmetic enhancement as a gift for a wife who really wants to make the most of her best features.
However, a third of all treatments given as presents are given to male recipients by their partners. Men are just as concerned about their appearance as women, with more than ever opting for cosmetic treatments, such as hair implants or eye bag removal.
One of the most popular treatments is Botox and collagen filler injections to diminish the appearance of wrinkles. Botox works by transferring a tiny amount of botulinum toxin into the skin over the wrinkles. It then temporarily paralyzes the muscles so they cannot contract, relaxing the wrinkles, so they aren't as noticeable.
The effects of Botox can last between three and six months and will make a person look visibly younger. During the holiday season, local Botox specials in Utah are available so people can get the ultimate beauty gift for their loved one at a more affordable price.
Juvéderm is also a popular choice. This is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid — a component found naturally in the body. When injected into wrinkles, it smoothes them out, giving volume and a more youthful complexion.
Laser treatments are another non-surgical gift idea. Laser treatment can banish wrinkles and acne, minimize scars and facial vessels and remove unwanted hair.
Cosmetic enhancement gift certificates are the new and increasingly popular way to give a gift at Christmas, for women and men alike. Botox and dermal fillers are two of the most sought-after treatments and are a non-invasive affordable way to help someone you love feel great.
