If you haven’t started already, the time for Christmas shopping is here. It’s tough for some of us to buy a gift for that special somebody, such as your partner. Perhaps they’ve hinted at a special bracelet or pair of earrings, or maybe it’s the simple things, like a soft, comfortable robe. Or maybe, just maybe, they’ve expressed a desire to improve their physical appearance by addressing a cosmetic concern.
If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift for somebody special, and are confident they are interested in a facial rejuvenation procedure, here is a guide on how to ensure your gift is well received.
Where to Start
If you’re thinking about gifting a facial rejuvenation procedure, you should keep these tips in mind:
- Pick a procedure that the recipient has mentioned some interest in.
- Gift a consultation with a board-certified dermatologist to ensure the procedure is right for the receiver of the gift.
- Don’t schedule a procedure secretly without a consultation, unless it’s a treatment your loved gets regularly (like BOTOX®).
If this is their first aesthetic treatment, don’t let it end with the procedure. Be there for support throughout the process.

How Do the Sexes Differ?
Women tend to be more open to cosmetic treatment as a gift than men. It’s essential to make sure your loved one sees your gift as a favorable present at the time you give it. For many, an aesthetic improvement is a personal choice they make with discretion, so it may be best to present the gift when the two of you are alone.
On the subject of presenting your present with little fanfare to others, younger generations, like millennials and generation Xers, are more open about cosmetic improvement. However, baby boomers are more likely to want to keep this gift a secret.
Men are more likely to give a facial rejuvenation or body contouring gift to their significant other rather than to a friend, parent, or sibling. Women, on the other hand, are more likely to give it to a friend or mother, rather than their romantic partner.
The generosity of this present is the motivation behind it. If your loved one has been wanting a particular treatment but can’t afford it or bring themselves to schedule a consultation, you may be the catalyst for him or her to attain their dream. However, if they have never mentioned wanting the procedure before, scheduling an appointment for cosmetic improvement may send the wrong message.
