Celebrating Dads

Summer has arrived but this month at Travis Shaw MD we are all about the Dads! We want to help you pamper the Dads/Guys in your life because they deserve a little attention too – especially on Father’s Day! Whether they embrace their “Dad bod” or just want to up their skincare game, we are here to help.

If you have been putting a lot of thought into the “perfect gift” and just not coming up with the gift of all gifts, you are not alone. It can be a bit of a struggle to find just the right one to show your Dad or guy just how special he is.

We all know men typically don’t ask for what they want, which leaves us guessing and scrambling for just the right thing. So, what is something he might want but not be willing or know to ask for? 

A new shirt or tie, a card, something on the grill, or a round of golf would all be appreciated. But those aren’t really going to change how he feels about himself or take any time off his morning routine, right? That’s why we have some out-of-the-box gift ideas for your favorite father figures.  

We offer a variety of services and skincare that our male patients love. Botox or “Brotox” is one of our most popular treatments for men. Have you wanted to introduce your dad or favorite guy to injectables? Now’s the time!

Laser Hair Removal, Filler and HydraFacials are very popular as well and can be combined with products from our ZO Skin Health Medical grade skincare line.

Looking younger and feeling better about ourselves is not just for the ladies. We see male patients of all ages wanting to refresh their look and boost their confidence. Some of the biggest motivations for them is the pressure they feel at work and in their social lives to keep fit and look good, no matter their age. Men are now retiring much later in life than they traditionally have so “subtly” enhancing their appearance is more appealing than ever (not to mention social media or zoom meetings).

We have noticed our male patients’ wives or girlfriends are sometimes the ones that encourage and introduce them to cosmetic treatments. They know the difference it has made for their self-esteem and want to give the same gift to their husbands, dad’s or significant others. 

Another reason Dads may like a little “Brotox” or any of our other services as a gift: It gives them that little push to have a treatment they may have wanted for a while and still be able to go back to work with no one the wiser.

So, if you want to help the Dads in your life look relaxed, well-rested, and invigorated – looking and feeling like the best version of himself with little to no downtime – we have put together the “Guy” guide below with some of our favorite “Dad” services. 

So, if you are a Dad (or not), who has been toying with the idea of cosmetic treatments, it’s time to treat yourself!! 


Here our NP/Master Injector Whitney is doing a little “Brotox” for our own Dr. Shaw. Injectable treatments have become increasingly popular for men in recent years, especially for correcting crow’s feet and wrinkles, restructuring jawlines, defining cheeks and smoothing foreheads. There is no down time and patients can go straight back to work! In fact, after undergoing injections, many male patients liken Botox to a form of self-care that really is no different than working on their bodies at the gym.


Appearance-enhancing procedures, such as facial fillers, are not just meant for women.

Dr. Shaw and Our Master Injector, Whitney, FNP, are very versed in male facial anatomy as well as facial fillers. Their goal is to ensure subtle, natural looking results that do not feminize the face. Results vary but fillers have been proven for reducing deep wrinkles and fine lines and enhancing jawlines and chins producing a more youthful appearance.

PRP Hair Restoration

Hair loss as we age is extremely common for both men and women. Try giving your dad his old ‘do’ back this Father’s Day with PRP injections. This is a quick and simple treatment for regrowing hair in thinning areas, as well as strengthening hair follicles to prevent further hair loss.

Laser Hair Removal

Is Dad tired of shaving his beard and dealing with back hair? Help him save time during his morning routine by gifting him a few laser hair removal treatments! (Did we mention some of these treatments can take only 30 minutes or so AND we offer packages).

PDO Thread Lift

This can be a suitable procedure for Dads that are bothered about the appearance of sagging skin, lines, wrinkles, and poor skin elasticity. It almost sounds too good to be true, but this minimally invasive treatment now makes it possible to lift and tighten skin, achieving results that are similar to a surgical facelift. A PDO Thread Lift leaves the face firmer, tighter, and more youthful in appearance, and it offers results that can last 18 months or more.

Skin Tightening (Tempsure Envi) 

Does Dad have the urge to improve how he looks and feels? Skin tightening is an excellent choice for those struggling with facial laxity. Loose skin is a naturally occurring issue that develops due to collagen and elastin content loss. While exercise and an active outdoor lifestyle are instrumental in keeping bodies healthy, these measures do little to maintain facial skin tightness. If you want to help Dad improve his skin, we’re here to help! This treatment provides fast-acting, natural results without making you feel overdone.

We also offer HydraFacials, Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasions and our ZO Skin Health product line up as well, so a gift certificate is a great way to go. Then Dad can pick his favorite! Travis Shaw MD gift cards are available on our website @travisshawmd.com or by calling our office at (804) 775-4559.

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads who make our lives so much better just by being “Dad”!
