How a Day at the Spa Can Do More Than Just Relax You

How a Day at the Spa Can Do More Than Just Relax You

Vacations aside, is there anything more relaxing than a day at the spa? With steamy facials, gentle massage therapy, and soothing scents, it’s not hard to let go of your worries and stress while you’re enjoying spa services. This perk alone draws people in by the thousands, and they quickly discover just how beneficial a spa day can be. 

At Sterling Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Sarasota, Florida, board-certified surgeon Mark Mathieson, MD and his team of certified aestheticians welcome you to the practice for numerous spa services that go above and beyond to make you look and feel first class. 

We encourage you to explore our selection on our website or visit for a consultation to select the services that align with your preferences. As you review services to add to your next relaxing spa day, consider these benefits that make your trip worth it:

Taking the time off your skin

You don’t realize just how much your skin has aged until you go through the right treatments or practices to restore some of its youthful beauty. While you might have qualms about individual wrinkles or age spots, our facials and other spa services like chemical peels or microdermabrasion can transform your skin more than you might anticipate. 

Exfoliating spa services like chemical peels and microdermabrasion literally slough off layers of dead, dying, and sun-damaged skin cells. Once your skin heals with renewed cells, its beautiful new glow stands out. Following many of our spa services, you can see fewer:

With plenty of options for facials, such as our collagen-boosting green papaya facial or our peptide-rich copper moisturizing mask, you can customize your time at the spa with services that meet or exceed your expectations.

Easing your discomfort

One crucial component of every spa facial is a gentle face and neck massage. There are many purported benefits of a facial massage, including lymphatic drainage and wrinkle minimization. But you might be most intrigued by the potential for pain relief. 

If you experience temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), which causes a painful jaw and sometimes headaches or ear pain, a facial massage can help the involved muscles relax. The massage also promotes great circulation not only to relieve tension, but also to marginally improve your skin’s appearance.

Additionally, a facial massage can relieve sinus pressure, congestion, and any associated discomfort. Many people experience pressure in their sinuses due to allergies, a deviated septum, or chronic sinusitis. As long as you don’t have a current acute infection, you can safely release pressure during a facial. 

Ready to experience the benefits for yourself?

If you’re overdue for a spa day, our team of professional aestheticians is ready to help you make the most of it. Schedule your spa visit over the phone or online at Sterling Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery today.
