One of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to cosmetic procedures (both invasive and non-invasive) is, “When is the best time to get a procedure done?” While there is no right answer for this, the statistics certainly show what the general public thinks.
In this article, we will explore popular times for certain types of procedures, why certain times are more popular, and what time could be right for you!
When is the best time for non-invasive treatments?
For non-invasive procedures (such as Coolsculpting or Botox), there doesn’t seem to be a time that’s better or worse. Because of the steady trend towards more non-invasive procedures, there have been many improvements made that resulted in decreased side-effects. In other words, it’s easy to go into an office for lunch, get a treatment, and leave back to work without anyone noticing any harsh differences.
These procedures tend to be for those who need a slight boost in color or texture in regards to their skin. Other non-invasive procedures like Coolsculpting are a bit more intense, but they still don’t leave behind any serious scares. Additionally, there is very little (if any) downtime required of non-invasive procedures.
When is the best time for invasive treatments?
When we discuss invasive treatments what we mean are procedures that require going “under the knife” for. Some examples include facelifts, liposuction, or breast augmentation. For these kinds of treatments there is an overwhelming trend that we see of men and women getting them after November.
The idea is simple – these procedures require a lot of recovery time, and they may leave behind very noticeable scarring for the first few months. Since you want to be outside enjoying the sunshine in the summer, it makes the most sense to get these procedures done when it’s cold, people are bundled up in layers, and most people are taking time off.
When is the best time for you?
Ultimately, the decision on when you will have your cosmetic procedure done is completely up to you. The best time to have your procedure done is when you’re ready, have the finances, and have the time. The important thing to remember is that after an invasive procedure you will need to spend a few months taking it easy and recovering. With a non-invasive procedure, you could be fine to go to the beach or back to work within minutes or hours.
