This is the time of year during which we gleefully make our holiday gift-giving list. No doubt you’ve already done so, with the holidays now upon us. If you remember, you probably felt a surge of delight just making the list. This is because there is literal psychology to giving, actual changes in the brain that happen when we give a gift of any size to those we love. Studies show that even giving to charity can light up the areas of the brain that are within our “pleasure center.” As merry as we feel giving to others, the holidays can put us in a place of potential burnout, too. It is important to remember that you belong on your holiday gift-giving list to truly make this the hap-happiest season of all.

A Gift of Any Size will Do

Remembering yourself throughout this holiday season doesn’t have to be a chore. It should be something to look forward to and it can be something that you do often. A little TLC may come in the form of a hot bath at the end of a long week, or a morning in bed with a good book. A true gift, though, is also one that you’ll remember. We have several quick and affordable options that you may love.

For a special gift all for you, visit our ReDerm MD Medical Spa in Denver for:

  • CoolSculpting body contouring treatment on the tummy, thighs, chin, or other areas.
  • SkinTyte skin-firming treatment on the face, neck, abdomen, arms, or other areas.
  • Forever Young BBL broadband light treatment for signs of sun damage and aging.
  • Dermal fillers for plump, beautiful lips or diminished lines and wrinkles.
  • Botox (bye-bye, frown lines!).
  • No downtime microneedling for a healthy holiday glow.

The holidays are depicted as a merry time of year, which they typically are. At the same time, the holiday season can bring stress along for the ride, with the extra spending and extra socializing we expect of ourselves. During the holidays, we may long for someone who is no longer with us or generally feel a bit melancholy. Enacting the psychology of giving, we can offset the stressors of the season with some good old TLC.

We’d love to see you in our Denver medical spa. To schedule a visit, call 720-550-6476.
