Why January is the Busiest Month of the Year for Cosmetic Treatments

January is the biggest and best month for many purchases – particularly fitness equipment, gym memberships, nutritional plans, and cosmetic procedures.

This comes down to resolution-conscious consumers starting their year with a bang and getting a jump start on looking their best for the pending summer months.

For some, this means getting minor touchups like injectablesBOTOX®, or superficial skin treatments. For others, this could mean body contouring procedures such as CoolSculpting or liposuction.

Which procedure people choose depends entirely on their own goals and desires, but the reason for January being the busiest cosmetic-treatment month of the year boils down to resolutions and new beginnings.

The “Makeover Mentality.”

For many people, entering the new year means making changes, whether these changes be to their habits, personal lives, professional aspirations, or physical appearance.

Looking one’s best often leads the way towards achieving other personal goals, which is why people often focus their new year’s resolutions on their physical appearance.

Cosmetic procedures offer a fantastic way for patients to boost their physical appearance and gain motivation for moving into the new year.

With this in mind, some of the most popular new year’s cosmetic procedures are often minimally invasive procedures that provide stunning results without the need for an extended period of downtime.

Dermal Fillers and BOTOX®

One of the most common concerns leading into the new year is the encroaching appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, which dermal fillers and BOTOX® address particularly well. Dermal fillers and BOTOX® injections provide patients with rapid anti-aging results with virtually zero downtime.

SkinPen Microneedling

Many patients are concerned with residual scarring from acne. In such cases, SkinPen microneedling offers a minimally invasive and highly effective treatment for eliminating the appearance of these scars by naturally capitalizing on the body’s healing systems.


Losing extra pounds or getting a better body is probably the most common new years resolution. With this in mind, it is no wonder that procedures such as CoolSculpting are massively popular in January, as they help patients get a glimpse of their potential physique and provide fantastic motivation towards achieving the body and muscle tone they desire.

Laser Liposuction

Just like CoolSculpting, laser liposuction helps people change their body for the better and realize the possible results if they stick to new years resolutions. This minimally invasive procedure will allow you to get the figure you deserve without a lengthy recovery period.
