December is one of the most popular months of the year for aesthetic treatments. But which treatments are the most common, and why?
What are the most popular aesthetic treatments in December?
Throughout December there are some aesthetic treatments that are requested much more frequently than others, in preparation for the party season and the new year. These popular treatments include:
- Lip fillers
- Chemical peels
Lip fillers in December
Lip fillers are one of the most popular dermal filler options throughout the year. However, in December, we often find that demand for lip fillers spikes. So why is this?
Lip fillers are injections of dermal filler into the lips and these can be used effectively for:
Adding volume to the lips – increasing the volume of the lips slightly, in line with your individual facial structure and shape, can be a great way to transform the face. It’s important to strike the right balance between the top and bottom lips as well as the rest of the face.
Lip symmetry – the left and right balance of the lips can be altered with lip fillers by increasing the volume slightly to resolve asymmetry.
Reducing the signs of ageing- as a natural part of the ageing the skin loses volume and this can lead to thinner lips. Lip fillers can be a straightforward solution to this, increasing Lip volume quickly and easily.
Chemical peels in December
With parties and social gatherings aplenty throughout December and into the new year, its no surprise that chemical peels are so popular at this time of year.
Chemical peels are an aesthetic treatment that involves using a slightly acidic substance which is applied to the outer surface layer of the skin. This is then removed after a certain amount of time which will differ depending on the type of chemical peel treatment you are receiving. What this does is removes the dead skin cells and old skin on the outer layer, encouraging skin cell rejuvenation. Ultimately this leaves your skin fresh, glowing and radiant in time for the party season. Chemical peels can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by removing the outer layer of skin allowing new skin cells with more elasticity to replace the old ones.
In addition chemical peels are also popular throughout the winter months as these are also useful for treating dry skin and skin complexion issues that may arise due to the change in temperature and humidity.
