Whether you’re ready or not, the holiday season is here, for many people the busiest time of the year. You’ve got work parties, family gatherings, and all types of social events piled on top of your usual responsibilities and obligations. With so much going on, it may be tempting to push your aesthetic concerns into the winter doldrum months of January and February.
Why be tempted? We at Hamptons Medical Associates have plenty of quick treatments that can have you looking your best throughout the holiday season, including three of our favorite approaches highlighted here. Take this holiday season to the next level with a refreshed and revitalized look.

Whether you’re looking for outstanding medical treatments or aesthetic care, we make sure you get the amazing and healthy results you deserve.
Botox®, scientifically known as botulinum toxin type A, is the most popular minimally invasive procedure, and by a large margin. In 2017, 7.23 million procedures were performed. It’s easy to see why so many people are interested in the procedure: Treatment takes minutes, and it doesn’t even require anesthesia.
While Botox has many cosmetic and medical uses, we recommend it for moderate to severe vertical lines between the eyebrows. These lines, often called 1's, 11's or 111's, form over time as you move your forehead and brows to squint, concentrate, smile, or frown.
As you age, your skin becomes less elastic, and these momentary movements end up leaving wrinkles and fine lines. At Hamptons Medical Associates, we use Botox Cosmetic, the first FDA-approved botulinum toxin, to lessen these lines for up to four months.
While the weather in Boca Raton may not experience a winter shift, much of the rest of the country can get truly cold during the holiday season. If your plans are taking you northward, a HydraFacial MD® can help you recover.
Cold weather holds less moisture and makes many people’s skin dry and flaky. Central heating can also dry out your skin. After spending some time in the cold, you may notice excessive dryness or even an acne breakout.
The HydraFacial MD revitalizes and protects your skin with a mix of powerful antioxidants. This treatment, which works for all skin types, revives your skin with its smooth and non-irritating healing. It’s immediately effective and requires no downtime.
Permanent laser hair reduction
Do you ever get tired of constantly waxing and shaving? The time and money spent getting rid of normal but unwanted body hair can really add up. An American Laser Centers survey found that the average woman spends the equivalent of 58.4 days shaving in their lifetime. Further, lifetime investments for shaving and waxing add up to $10,207 (shaving) and $23,000 (waxing).
Those figures make it easy to see how permanent laser hair reduction can save you time and money. We use the Vectus® by Cynosure® to remove unwanted hair in the following areas:
- Bikini line
The Vectus laser can remove unwanted hair in as little as five minutes. It works well for almost everyone, with a range that includes most skin colors and hair types. Best of all, these treatments are fast and easy, with very little downtime.
The holiday season could be a great time for a quick aesthetic treatment. Hamptons Medical Associates can have you looking your best this winter.
