Love is in the Air!

At Travis Shaw MD February is the month of love and a great time to love the skin you’re in. Whether you are celebrating with a romantic dinner for two or a night on the town or maybe time with your “Galentine”, you may want to refresh your look.  

If you are like most of us, you are probably still recovering from the hustle and bustle and all the excitement of the holidays so February can bring on the blahs. However, it is the month of love so we wanted to share some ways you can practice “self-love”. 

In our fast-paced world of work and daily life we tend to put ourselves last. That’s why the month of love is a perfect time to hit that reset button and focus on yourself for a bit. Why not kick off the month with a refreshed routine that will have your skin glowing while reversing the clock on aging. It’s a great time to finally get started on those beauty treatments you’ve kept on your wish list, just in time for the next big event on the calendar—Valentine’s Day! 

Below are some ideas to help you look your best and be ready for wherever the night or month might take you. We know you will fall in love with these treatments and be ready for Valentine’s Day!

Treatments to Fall in Love with this Valentine’s Day

Glow Up Your Skin

Forever Young BBL

Does it feel like traditional methods and at home treatments just aren’t doing the trick anymore to rejuvenate you? We all know trying service after service and product after product is time consuming and expensive. 

So, if you’re ready to get real results, glow up your skin with our Sciton BBL/Moxi treatment. Never heard of BBL? No worries…. We have the scoop. It’s one of our best non-invasive anti-aging treatments and our patients are seeing great results.

BBL uses broadband light (BBL) to diminish signs of aging, sun damage, dark spots, acne and many other skin conditions. 

It makes your skin clearer and more vibrant. It’s highly customizable, non-invasive, and there is no downtime after treatment. You can even wear makeup the same day! 

So, how about Moxi? Haven’t heard of this one either? Well, you are in for a treat! 

Moxi is a non-ablative laser treatment that resurfaces and rejuvenates your skin. It corrects the first signs of sun damage, treats uneven pigmentation, and improves the general condition of your skin by giving your collagen production a boost. 

What happens when you combine BBL/Moxi? Glad you asked! This two-in-one treatment is an excellent way to achieve gorgeous skin. Not only is your skin smoother, clearer, and more supple, your fine lines and wrinkles are reduced too. And best of all, this treatment is powerful and fast. 

You can see results after just one treatment, but you need to glow up your skin with our BBL/Moxi multiple times to achieve maximum results. 

It’s great for nearly all skin tones, and most people are ideal candidates for BBL and Moxi. You can have this combo treatment on other parts of your body, too. So talk to our providers about what areas you want to treat during your consultation. 

Are you ready to experience the most beautiful skin you have ever had? Rejuvenate and brighten your skin with our BBL/Moxi treatment. Our providers are dedicated to giving you the most amazing results. 

Wake Up Thirsty Skin 

HydraFacial

Winter months can really dry out your skin. Cold air is drier than warm air, especially if you’re outdoors in the wind. Inside heat and car heaters keep the dry air blowing on your skin. But you can keep your skin hydrated with a refreshing HydraFacial treatment.

A HydraFacial cleans away old skin cells, removes dirt deep within your pores, and then hydrates your skin with a special serum. It’s a non-invasive treatment that rejuvenates and refreshes your skin without harsh chemical peels or dermabrasion.

It is beneficial for all skin types: oily, medium, or dry. It improves the appearance of your skin and is helpful if you have wrinkles and fine lines, acne, dry or thin skin, aging skin, or large pores along with other skin conditions.

It also includes a gentle peel as part of this treatment which our providers customize for the most beneficial effect dependent upon your skin type. 

Your skin will feel super-hydrated and rejuvenated and who doesn’t experience chapped lips from winter wind? Those crusty “winter” lips that are still dry even with lipstick or lip serums will feel hydrated again.

You will see a radiant glow on your skin and smoother texture immediately. Your skin will stay intensely hydrated for a week or more. And your makeup will look smoother as well!

SAY GOODBYE TO THOSE WRINKLES ESPECIALLY AROUND THE EYES

Are you tired of frown lines and crow’s feet? They make us look older and more tired than we care to admit. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so what to do if we all want to look our best on the most romantic day of the year? Thankfully there is still time for a quick and easy Botox treatment. It’s a tried-and-true method for fixing those trouble spots safely and in a hurry.

We know you have heard that the eyes act as a window to our souls, right? Here’s why:  A loving gaze is one of the most special ways of showing love. However, if you’re concerned about the focus falling on your fine lines and crow’s feet, it’s time to skip the heavy makeup and try a wrinkle reduction treatment instead.

Botox is a great non-surgical treatment option to manage the early signs of aging by inhibiting the nerve signals at the places where we’re most expressive (and the most prone to wrinkles). Best of all: Botox is a gift you can give yourself that keeps on giving. Who doesn’t love that?

You’ll see initial and subtle results in time for Valentine’s Day, with results that last 3-4 months. Not bad, especially for a treatment that can take as little as 10 minutes. It’s time to let us help you be the best version of you with fewer noticeable facial lines.

Ditch The Hair & The Razor

Hair removal can be messy and time-consuming, whether waxing or shaving, not to mention the annoying bumps and burns that often occur. Imagine all the time and energy you’d save if you didn’t have to worry about any of that! We offer a longer-lasting solution, Laser Hair Removal, to reduce permanent hair growth. It is a series of customized treatments (ask about our package deals). This low maintenance alternative means you won’t need to worry about stubble left behind by your razor or deal with hot and messy wax anymore. Celebrate love with smooth, stubble-free skin all year round.

Pucker Up & Plump Your Pout

Love Your Lips

If you’re desiring pucker ready lips in time for Valentine’s Day, it might be overwhelming trying to decide which filler to use. Don’t fret -a consult with our Master Injector Whitney will ease those woes as she will assist in picking the best option for you. We offer multiple types of fillers that can work to add or replace lost volume to lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lip lines!

Whether or not you were born with naturally thin lips or noticed your lips thinning over time, our collection of fillers reduces wrinkles and adds volume. We can plump up those thin lips while also softening the appearance of those subtle or severe vertical lip lines around your mouth and nose. 

Fillers are a great way to provide instant results, which means they’re perfect for kissable lips this Valentine’s Day!

Toss the Spanx

Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to break out that little red dress or fabulous new outfit that’s been hiding in the back of your closet. Instead of relying on body-shaping undergarments to feel comfortable in those more fitted pieces, consider opting for a more reliable solution to smoothen out the muffin tops and flanks area. 

You may have heard of CoolSculpting? Well, SculpSure Body Contouring is a newer form of technology that uses a non-invasive laser to contour the body. It uses heat instead of cold and causes fat cells to rupture, a process known as lipolysis. Basically, Sculpsure causes fat cell death. The dead cells are then removed from your body via the lymphatic system over the span of 2-3 months. 

These are non-surgical treatments that work to effectively target and break down fat for a more contoured figure. Treatments can be done in different areas and our provider will assist you in determining goals. If you have small pockets of fat that bother you, SculpSure Body Contouring is a way to lose some inches if your weight remains stable, the results are permanent. 

This is a great alternative to liposuction, which can be expensive, and requires anesthesia and lots of down time and who has time for that! 

Best results can be seen with a series of 3 treatments.  

Are you ready to take the first step to feeling good in your skin this Valentine’s Day? If so, it’s time to schedule a consultation to see if this would work for you.
