A woman we know once proclaimed that “Every day should be Mother’s Day” and we couldn’t agree more! Realistically that is not going to happen so all of us mothers must unite and take advantage of the Mother’s Day that is rapidly approaching on Sunday, May 12th. What would make your day perfect? Brunch with the family at a five-star restaurant? Breakfast in bed? A piece of jewelry? A gift certificate to Blu Cocoon for a spa service of your choice? If you answered yes to the last question, we are here to help, keep reading …
If you want to be showered with Blu Cocoon gift certificates (and who doesn’t?) we are fully supportive of your wish! We’ve done a little soul-searching and internet browsing and have come up with some strong points about the “benefits of being beautified” and how certain treatments offered at our San Jose med spa can assist in that quest. We only can help you so much, so we suggest that after reading this blog post that you print it out, cut the top two paragraphs off (this one and the one above) and leave it somewhere to be found by your loved one(s) who may be contemplating what to get you for the special day. They will be grateful for the hint and you will be ecstatic when you receive your gift! Truly a Happy Mother’s Day!
The title of this blog post is a little tricky. We’re not discussing “being beautiful” but instead we are addressing “being beautified“. What exactly do we mean by that? At Blu Cocoon Med Spa in San Jose we “beautify” our clients every day, in different ways for each person. Some clients need help relaxing their wrinkles while others want fuller cheekbones or lips; certain clients simply desire clearer pores while others seek revitalization for their skin. Whatever spa service a person chooses, they are doing so because it is helping them feel more beautiful. And when a person feels beautiful, they exude confidence and positive energy; we think this truly makes a person beautified. There are both emotional and physical benefits to being beautified. Let’s explore …
Facials – such as the Blu Cocoon Classic Facial or Blu Cocoon’s Corrective Acne Treatment – contribute to both the rejuvenation of the skin and the mental well-being of the client. Deep cleansing, exfoliation, and massage soothe the skin in a relaxing atmosphere. A facial sloughs off the old skin to show new, glowing skin and at the same time can improve a mood by decreasing anxiety levels (according to a study conducted by the User Science Institute). It may also relieve sinus congestion for certain people (if steam is used) and can stimulate the lymphatic system to help remove toxins from the body. A facial refreshes the skin while resetting the mood of the person receiving the service. An upbeat mood can positively affect a person’s parenting, work performance, and relationships with others. Which is why we feel that a facial truly beautifies our clients. There is no downside to having a facial (especially on a regular basis)!
Advanced wrinkle treatments – such as Botox, Dysport, and Dermal Fillers – are also beautifiers. Botox and Dysport both temporarily relax the muscles in the forehead that make wrinkles (the lines across the forehead, the “crow’s feet” around the eyes) while dermal fillers get rid of crevices in the face (like the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth) and also fill and lift areas to accentuate cheek bones, open up the eyes, turn up the corners of the mouth, and much more. Undoubtedly Botox and fillers, used together or separately, can help turn back the clock on a person’s face and can literally “turn the frown upside down”. This external beautification can help internally as well. UCSF Medical School professor of Psychology, Paul Ekman, established the idea that emotions and expressions are linked and thinks it’s “perfectly plausible that changing people’s facial expressions will change their mood”. We’re not claiming that Botox will cure depression, but it can boost a person’s overall feeling of well-being. Clinical studies have shown that Botox users feel less anxiety when their wrinkle-free, refreshed appearance smiles back at them in the mirror. Feeling beautiful from the outside to the inside can heighten a person’s happiness, enhance their quality of life and positively affect those who surround them. That is beautifying!
These are just two examples of how we beautify people daily at Blu Cocoon Med Spa. We offer plenty of other medical spa services designed to improve the skin, renew your outer beauty and your inner spirit!
