Resolve to Start Anew This New Year

“The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.” — Melody Beattie

New Years’ resolutions – we know we’re likely to break them yet we continue to commit to a self-promise year after year.

Weight loss, fitness and saving more money continue to top the list Jan. 1, followed by resolutions related to happiness, paying off debt and spending more time with friends and family, according to’s annual assessment of resolutions.

All of these well-meaning resolutions – whether or not they are kept and fulfilled – have a common thread: individuals wanting to better themselves for the coming year.

Here at Delete® – Tattoo Removal & Laser Salon, we see a surge of bright eyed individuals in January, inspired to improve their appearance, invest in their health or hit “Delete” on an old tattoo that no longer serves them. We welcome them with open arms and support them in their vision to revealing their best selves.

Although we regularly see resolution-driven visits at the beginning of the year, here are the top themes we’re likely to see come 2017.

Resolution Theme #1: “I’m ready to let go of the baggage of an old flame.” According to the latest census data, 107 million Americans count themselves as single, making up 45 percent of all U.S. residents 18 and older. In fact, singledom is so accepted and celebrated that we now have a dedicated week in September, National Singles Week. Being single, yet bearing the tattooed name of an old flame, is not the best way to meet a new partner.

Resolution Theme #2: “It’s time I started taking care of my skin. Chemical peels, botox or laser-treated facials like our PicoWay Resolve™, which reduces scars left behind by acne, stubborn stretch marks, skin irregularities and age marks, all help you invest in the long-term appearance of your skin. Individuals aren’t waiting until their 40s or 50s to take notice of sun damage or wrinkles; we’re seeing patients in as young as their mid-20s wanting to get a jump on preventing aging.

Resolution Theme #3: “I want to have more energy.” To-do lists seem to grow each year, and life certainly isn’t getting less busy. Therefore, we’re seeing a surge of individuals simply wanting the energy to meet the day head on and eventually reach big personal goals they’ve set for themselves. Our injectable therapies do just this – help our patients feel energized, healthier and free of toxins.
