If you need a quick mini-makeover for the holidays and New Year countdown, simple and affordable cosmetic procedures such as laser hair removal and dermal fillers may be your best bets.
Researchers at the Harley Medical Group, the UK's largest cosemtic surgery provider, are reporting that laser hair removal treatments and packages are some of the most sought-after procedures for the 2012 holiday season.
A recent press release from the Harley medical Group states that the quick and gentle procedure helps to remove small patches of unwanted hair right in time for the holidays. While some people will need a series of treatments to achieve long-lasting results, the procedure can help get rid of a substantial amount of hair after one treatment, eliminating the need to use hair removal creams or wax for fuzz-free skin.
Botox and other dermal fillers are also convenient options for a quick pre-holiday fix, and many medical spas and cosmetic surgery centers are offering deep discounts on these treatments to lure in holiday shoppers during the tough economic times. Dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and Botox can help diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and all of them deliver instant results. Since these fillers do not require any bandages or a significant amount of downtime, they could be an attractive treatment for those on a tight schedule this holiday season.
A single laser hair removal treatment can cost between $50 to $200 for small areas and $500 - $900 for larger areas. Costs depend on the density of the hair, number of treatments purchased, and the location of the laser hair removal doctor.
The average cost of Botox and other dermal fillers ranges between $400 - $600+ depending on the type of injectable and the physician or aesthetic professional administering the injection. Patients who do find discounted packages and special offers are advised to check the credentials of the provider and verify that the facility is using genuine products.
