Spring Break Girls’ Spa Day – Procedures for Beautiful Skin!

Spring is just around the corner, and with it comes the opportunity for rejuvenation. With the damaging cold winds of winter now mostly gone, your skin deserves some love, and what better way to do that than with a spa day? Better yet, you can get one with your girlfriends during spring break!

There are plenty of procedures that you can get to improve your features to the point where making a choice can seem very difficult. When in doubt, the first route is to go for a procedure that offers immediate benefits. Read this blog and find out what treatments you can get to look your best.

How to Prepare for a Spa Day?

When you book a spa day, you often rest assured that the professional team will cater to your skin’s needs. However, to get the best service, you should take some preparation steps beforehand. The first is to eat a healthy meal and hydrate yourself, especially if you are going in for fillers or facials. This way, you will not compromise the results right after the treatment.

If possible, do not wear makeup on the day of your appointment. While our providers will also cleanse your face, the “canvas” should be as clear and clean as possible. If you must wear makeup that day, carry a pack of makeup removal wipes. Avoid shaving before the procedure, as some treatments can irritate your already sensitive follicles. Call Dr. Travis Shaw and ask him for advice on each procedure. 

Injectables for a Youthful Look

Welcoming spring break is much more rewarding when you are looking your best. Injectables can significantly benefit you, and below are some of the most popular options to enjoy during spa day:

1. BOTOX® Cosmetic 

When dynamic wrinkles are creeping their way in, an effective treatment option is BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. Based on botulinum toxin type A, these fillers stop the signal that goes from your nerves to your muscles, preventing unnecessary contractions underneath the skin. Over time, the surface begins to smooth out, offering you a more youthful aesthetic.

2. Dermal Fillers

Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, which stops muscle contractions, dermal fillers fill in the voids. The most popular options are hyaluronic acid fillers like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, which add extra volume, but Sculptra® Aesthetic is also a great alternative. Made from poly-l-lactic acid, the latter offers instant results and improves collagen production in the long term. 


Chin fat can be very embarrassing for many, preventing you from posting those cute pictures with your girlfriends. Made from synthetic deoxycholic acid, KYBELLA® damages the fat underneath the skin, causing it to be naturally eliminated by the body. Within a few weeks, you will notice your chin looking smoother, without a “shadow” underneath.

Facials for Bright Days

While fillers are great for improving the aesthetic of your skin, there are several other procedures that you can try. This can include the following: 

  • DiamondGlow® 

Cold air can dry your skin, making you look dull and tired. An excellent procedure to revitalize your complexion is DiamondGlow®. This three-step treatment exfoliates the skin, extracts debris from the pores, and infuses serums in your skin with a diamond-tipped tool. This treatment helps restore its vigor.

  • Dermaplaning

Your complexion suffers a lot when you have dead skin on the surface, and the peach fuzz often throws off your entire skin aesthetic. Dermaplaning is a great procedure to rejuvenate the skin, using a specialized scalpel tool to gently scrape off the top layer.
