Invest Your Tax Return on Improvements to Your Health, Beauty and Well-Being

Invest Your Tax Return on Improvements to Your Health, Beauty and Well-Being

For most of us taxpayers, preparing your tax return is often one of the most dreaded necessities in life. But hopefully there is a benefit to all the hassle and stress that accompanies the filing of your taxes. And that benefit is a lump sum tax refund, with the average estimated return around $3,000. If you’ve been trying to scrimp and save up during the year for a little “something” just for you, and haven’t been able to get it all together, a tax return represents a nice, big windfall. Although there are always good solid ways to spend the refund – paying off credit cards, home improvements, an IRA, or savings options, a vacation or electronics? But what if it could go toward enhancing your appearance and boosting self-confidence, which is a long term gain? If you’ve been considering treating yourself to a cosmetic treatment with that tax refund, is recommended to give some serious thought as to how best to use that money. If you feel happy about yourself, does it really matter if your backsplash is the latest glass tile trend?

Long Term Gains

We’re not talking radical procedures for a total and often unrecognizable transformation. At LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic, we offer predominantly non-invasive, non-surgical procedures to improve a problem area or condition that has been keeping you from feeling and looking your best. Is your chin doubling up on itself? Are you reluctant to wear anything shorter than capris in the heat of summer because of varicose and spider veins? Does it take valuable time every day to try and hide acne scarring or sun damage only to see your reflection and it’s still visible through layers of make-up? Are your beautiful eyes disappearing under folds of draping skin? LaserMed suggests procedures that allow you to still be yourself – only better. And there’s no more valuable investment than one that improves your self-esteem and ultimately quality of life. Think about it – in 10 years will that $3000 make a huge difference in a mutual fund or stocks the way the market goes up and down? Or in 10 years will you be able to look back and say, “I think that was the best decision I ever made. I’ve felt so good and I really looked so much younger”.

How Do I Get the Most From My Return?

Recent 2014 statistics indicate that of those people receiving a tax return, approximately 30% spent all or part of it on cosmetic procedures. Depending on the return amount, your age, health of your skin, issues to be addressed and/or areas identified for improvement and desired outcome, LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic shares some recommendations on how you can put your refund to work for you!

Non-Invasive, Short Term, Targeted Area Treatments for Smaller Returns:

Tax refund a little less than you expected? Have you been blessed with a wonderful complexion but have extremely strong facial muscles so defined lines are etched between your brows, on the sides of your eyes or on the forehead? Do you see a puppet looking back at you because of nasal labial folds or marionette lines? Is your skin looking dull and flaky? Or do you just need a little boost for a special occasion, or a well deserved hour of pampering? Here are some choices to give you a “photoshopped” advantage with just a few minor changes.

Botox or Dysport – Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles between the brows, crow’s feet alongside eyes, and forehead. Dysport can also be used to help reduce the lip pursing movements which contribute to lip lines.
Injectable Dermal Fillers – Restylane, Sculptra or Voluma Ultra
Chemical Peels – Vi Peel or a Custom Peel
Intense Pulse Light (IPL is often called Photofacial) treats pigmented lesions, redness or broken capillaries (2 or 3 sessions)
LaserFacial – Mild acne scar or rosascea laser treatment series (3 or 4 sessions)
Sclerotherapy – Minor Spider Veins

Average Returns Score Deeper Epidermis and Laser Treatments with Long Lasting Results

Did you receive a tax return around the national average? Good for you. If you are in the age group where skin laxity and gravity have become partners, and are seeking a solution to tighten, uplift and stimulate collagen product for select areas, including your face, brows, eyes, neck, thighs, or decollete? What about those stubborn little bulgy pockets of fat that just won’t budge despite diet and exercise? Is your entire face at that point where an all over revitalization is required? Is unwanted hair or unsightly veins on various parts of your body making you self-conscious, and always wishing it was winter? Or do you suffer from tattoo regret? Whatever your specific body vexation, LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic can invest your tax return funds for your maximum benefit.

Fractionated CO2 Laser: For a total facial rejuvenation, Fractionated CO2 Laser treatment evens out skin color, and refines skin texture, reduces melasma, softens fine lines and wrinkles, and levels out acne and surgical scars. You’ll look glowing and refreshed.

Medical Micro-Needling with Growth Factor: This minimally invasive non-surgical procedure for targeted areas of facial rejuvenation involves the use of a micro-needling device to create a controlled skin injury. The body then responds by stimulating the production of collagen, which improves the appearance of common skin conditions such as scar revision, fine line correction, texture improvement, as well as lifting and tightening the skin. The infusion of the growth factor serum penetrates into the skin for a boost of good healing proteins that promote cell regeneration.

Tattoo Removal: Removing a tattoo uses a shortwave light beam laser. The color in the tattoo absorbs the light and begins to break up the ink which is harmlessly removed by the body’s immune system.

FIT Cellulite Treatment and Body Contouring: A radio frequency procedure which targets laxity and sagginess on the body for instant, temporary tightening and lifting of the treated area with no downtime. Also increases collagen and elastin production to combat the appearance of cellulite on hips, thighs and buttocks. Add the Resolution Cellulite System to maintain the reduced appearance of cellulite.

Sclerotherapy: If spider or varicose veins on your legs make you dread warm weather, then Sclerotherapy is the answer. The process involves the use of a series of very tiny injections of a solution directly into the affected veins. This therapeutic liquid solution causes the affected veins to first seal shut, then collapse and slowly fade away.

Endovenous Laser Ablation (CTEV): This minimally invasive technology represents the most recent advancement in treating varicose veins.

Laser Hair Reduction: Remove that unwanted hair by means of exposure to laser that destroys the hair follicle. A series of treatments is required due to the hair growth cycle. Price varies by area, so small areas such as upper lip, center of chest (female) or chin may be able to be completed even if your refund amount is below the national average.

Blast fat cells with SmartLipo. Contour your arms, thighs, saddlebag areas, tummy, hips, muffin top, even neck.

Hit the Jackpot Return

In the lucky event that your refund is abundant, you can maximize the your potential by combining several procedures, or going for the gold level Ultherapy packages: the Mid/Lower Face & Neck which includes the area from the cheekbones to the collar bone; the Full Face, which includes the Mid/Lower Face and eye areas; or the all-inclusive Full Face With Neck, which encompasses your eyes down to the collarbone. It’s like a full facelift without a single suture or scar.

Using your refund to invest in your body and your health is priceless and can have a major impact on your life. You won’t have any regrets once you see the return on your investment.
