Forget about diamonds, Louboutins and Facebook Portals this holiday season. This year, an aesthetic subscription is the gift everyone’s placing at the top of their wish list. Amazing skin, hair-free legs and lips to die for? Now, who’s going to say no to all of those under the Christmas tree?
So, what is an aesthetic subscription? In short, it’s a unique, doctor-prescribed treatment program curated specifically to help attain and maintain your aesthetic goals (or the lucky recipient of this year’s BEST holiday gift ever, of course). A treatment plan may include anything from injectables like Botox, Dysport, Restylane and Voluma, to chemical peels, HydraFacials, medical-grade skincare and even laser hair removal.
“A beauty plan goes above and beyond the usual routine because it turns up your anti-aging efforts full throttle and is also designed to eliminate personal concerns like acne, rosacea and hyperpigmentation,” explains board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Ronan, founder of Blackhawk Plastic Surgery and MedSpa.
It really is the whole package – and not just for the holidays;)
Think of it this way: you can take your chances with your average, everyday skincare routine that’s been blindly recommended by department store sales people, beauty mags or the latest Insta influencer. Or, you could work with the best aesthetic physicians in the business to create a totally customizable, medically-advanced treatment plan to suit your skin, concerns, budget and goals.
We know which option we would choose.
Injectables, medical-grade skincare and aesthetic treatments offer far more visible results than any off-the-shelf product or spa treatment could dream of. And yes, this even includes the latest $200 miracle face cream that promises the world, but in reality offers so much less. Clinically proven to renew, revive and rejuvenate at a deep, cellular level, physician-dispensed skincare such as Alastin, ZO and Neocutis, alongside regular treatments at the doctor’s office help put you in control of the way you age.
“No store-bought product or mainstream spa treatment can promise the results you get from harnessing the power of medical-grade everything,” adds Dr. Ronan.
Whether your skin could benefit from dermal fillers, at-home retinol, injectable toxins, microdermabrasion or some regular laser resurfacing, a treatment plan has it all covered. And being able to pay for everything in easy monthly installments, rather than in one big hit? It’s like Christmas every day of the year. Especially when someone else is paying!
Another major benefit a treatment plan offers is consistency. By signing up to a plan, you’ll receive a regular treatment schedule, including personal reminders so you’ll never forget a treatment or leave it too late. This makes it oh-so-simple to stay on-track with your appointments. Your skincare will be delivered to your doorstep exactly when you need it and if you find you use less than you thought, you can easily change your delivery dates.
In our opinion, doctor’s treatments are the only proven way to get problem skin to behave the way you want, particularly when skin becomes less efficient with age. And when you add a bespoke, clinically-proven skincare prescription into the mix, what transpires are fewer lines and wrinkles, less noticeable discolorations and improved tone and texture – especially with continued treatment, both at home and at the doctor’s office.
It’s official: a treatment plan is what every woman wants for 2019 and beyond. Obviously diamonds, Louboutins and Facebook Portals wouldn’t go amiss, either, but you know, priorities…
