Cosmetic Treatments: Tips to Make Your Plan for the Year

cosmetic treatments planning

More Americans than ever are getting cosmetic treatments – in fact, there were over 17 million treatments in 2018 alone according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That’s an increase of 163% over the last 20 years (compared to 2000). As cosmetic treatments increase, it’s important to make sure you’re trusting the right Providers to help guide you on the best regimen for your skin type and goals.

Determining Your Skin Care Priorities

You’ll want to start by making a list of any problem areas, concerns, or issues you’ve had with your skin. By sharing these items with your experienced Skin Care Provider, we’re able to help recommend the best medical and cosmetic treatments. Unlike some medical spas, we have Board-Certified Dermatologists who are onsite and oversee our practice, so you know you’re in the right hands.

Some questions to ask yourself include:

  • Are you worried about looking tired or showing signs of aging?
  • What are your short-term and long-term skin care goals?
  • Do you have any big events coming up in the next year or two?
  • Is your daily skin care regimen working for you?

You’ll want to make sure you’re getting your annual skin exam, which gives your Provider the opportunity to identify potential issues or discuss items you may want to address (this can also help identify potential skin cancer warning signs earlier).

Budgeting for Your Skin Care

In addition to picking the right dermatology practice, there are ways to help keep costs manageable when caring for your skin. Especially as we get older, our skin needs a little help to stay hydrated, get rid of acne, and keep wrinkles at bay.

Whatever your skin care regimen may be, scheduling and planning it in advance can help you maximize your time and investment. Work with one of our expert Providers at Vitalogy Skincare to develop your custom plan.

Be on the Lookout for Promotions

While cosmetic treatments can add up, if you love your BOTOX Cosmetic or other injectables as much as some of us do, you’ll want to find ways to save when possible. (Of course, you do want to make sure you are using a talented professional and have Dermatologists overseeing the practice like Vitalogy Skincare does.) 

For instance, you can sign up for Brilliant Distinctions — Allergan’s reward program that lets you earn points and discounts on treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic. There are also specials throughout the year, like National BOTOX Cosmetic Day, which will be held annually on the third Wednesday in November. Make sure to mark your calendar for it to line up great savings.

Deciding on the Right Treatments

Your Skin Care Provider can help you figure out what the right treatments and products are based on your skin concerns and what you’re looking to achieve. Since there’s no one-size-fits-all skin solution, we recommend scheduling a consultation to discuss concerns, get questions answered and to help you customize a plan.
