The holidays are here! Whether your schedule is filled to the brim, or you’re having a relaxing holiday with family, the winter break is the perfect time to schedule aesthetic treatments or procedures.


This procedure requires no downtime, so you can get back to your festivities almost immediately. You can even attend a holiday party on the same day as the treatment.

CoolSculpting at our Des Moines med spa kills fat cells under the skin using carefully controlled cold temperatures without the need for anesthesia or incisions.

After the treatment, many see results within 3 weeks. Maximum decrease in fat occurs after 2 to 4 months. Most patients have a noticeable decrease in fat after just 1 to 2 treatments, but optimal results may require 3 or 4. With this in mind, winter is the perfect time to start or continue your treatments if you want to see full results by swimsuit season.


BOTOX is an injectable facial rejuvenation treatment that relaxes wrinkles caused by contractions of facial muscles. Typical treatment areas are the frown lines between the eyes, horizontal forehead furrows, and crow’s feet.

The procedure requires little to no downtime, so patients are typically able to resume their normal daily activities right away. Results appear about a week after treatment, and last 3 to 4 months, so you will be able to start the new year looking refreshed and youthful!

Koch Facial Plastic Surgery and Spa is one of the largest providers of BOTOX treatments in the state of Iowa. Our BOTOX treatments are performed by or under the supervision of board-certified surgeons.

Chemical Peels

If you don’t have any plans during the days leading up to New Year’s Eve, a chemical peel can be a great treatment for renewing the surface of your skin and improving the appearance of any irregularities.

Chemical peels can often lead to raw, red, flaky skin depending on the type of peel selected, so this could be a good excuse to stay inside and relax for a few days.
