Entering my thirties was a transition.
I was settling into divorced life and our new life here in Sarasota.
I was gaining my confidence back while working on being more intentional with self-care. For me, I started self-care with learning how to do my make up. When I realized that high-school girls looked like they daily had a professional makeup artist at their house, I figured I could learn too. I watched YouTube videos and laughed with friends who were also clueless in the art of contouring. And I slowly figured it out.
However, I was utterly clueless about how to care for my skin.
I bought whatever fad or networking marketing product my friend said would help with fine lines. I bought random items from the drug store. I had no clue what I was doing or what my skin needed, so my routine was the most inconsistent random concoction!
My First Med Spa Experience
When Bowtique Med Spa invited Katie and me to try out their Diamond Glow treatment, I was so nervous.
I had a misconception about what Med Spa is.
When Katie and I walked into the treatment room with the fabulous Amber, Skin Care Specialist, we were already cracking jokes about how clueless we were to all of this. We confessed our bad facial habits, and Amber never once made us feel bad.
The reality is most of us have no clue how to care for our skin.
She asked each of us different questions, educated us through the entire process, and sincerely made me question why I was so afraid I had never done facial self-care!
The Full Facial Experience
Diamond Glow was formerly known as Dermalinfusion and is an advanced skin-resurfacing treatment. It combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion. It removes dry and damaged skin, does a deep cleanse of the pores, then adds good stuff to your skin. Your Skin Care Specialist helps you pick what's best for your skin type. For me, we did a mix of Vitamin C and Hydration.
The Diamond Glow treatment is a non-invasive treatment that is quick, effective, and affordable. It's a little suctioning massage for your whole face and neck.
I know that my before and after photos have different lighting; however, I immediately noticed my skin was just brighter. It felt insanely clean and smooth. And seeing all the dead skin in the jar was evidence that my face had just had the best cleaning ever.
After the treatment, I spend some time with Amber, and she helped me create a plan to care for my skin that worked for me. Now I wash my face at night with the product I already had, apply Vitamin C, in the morning splash my face with warm water, apply Vitamin C and then add an SPF 30 light foundation.
Super easy for this busy mom!

Hello again babes! I'm excited to share with you my most recent Med Spa experience at the Bowtox Boutique. If you are local to Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch or Bradenton, I just found your new go to Med Spa for Botox, fillers, Dermal Infusion treatments and SO much more!
Bowtox Boutique just opened a brand new location in Lakewood Ranch and they also have a location in Sarasota. I visited their newest location in Lakewood Ranch to try out their amazing Dermal Infusion.
Let me just say, the minute you walk in the door the friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere makes you feel right at home. The owners of Bowtox Boutique are also super friendly, which always makes me feel good about the businesses I am supporting! Julie was working at the front desk and was very accommodating while I was checking in. I mean, just look at the gorgeous atmosphere at the new Lakewood Ranch location!
I had the pleasure of getting the Dermal Infusion Treatment done by Amber, who truly made me feel so comfortable as she explained the process every step of the way.
What is Dermal Infusion?
You can learn the ins and outs of Dermal Infusion here. However, let me explain it in my own terms as well for further understanding! First of all, it is a customizable treatment– so whether you have rosacea, acne, dry, oily, etc. skin, they can customize it to meet your needs. In my case, I suffer with the slightest bit of acne, so Amber customized my treatment to help clear that up. It is basically a tiny vacuum that sucks up all the "yuck" in your pores, while infusing it with serum to help treat your skin. Meanwhile, it exfoliates your skin to make it look and feel fresh, radiant and even more voluminous! It is basically the best non-invasive treatment you can have to get youthful skin.
The treatment took about 40 minutes and is definitely affordable for the quality results you are getting. It did not hurt, it truly just felt like a little vacuum on your face!
I am super happy with the overall results. Not to mention that it was really relaxing- I cannot wait to go back. Look at the video below to see the serum they infused vs. what came out of my skin (hard to see what was floating around on camera but you can clearly see the color difference ￼). Pretty crazy considering I came in with no makeup on and a clean face. So much dead skin and dirt came out of my pores from the treatment. Especially living in Florida in the Summer, the sweat that accumulates in your pores can really cause some damage, so take care of it with this treatment!
The results I had were great from the Dermal Infusion. My skin looked noticeably more clear, smooth, refreshed and voluminous RIGHT after the treatment. Even my lips were more plumped and my under eyes were less dark looking. The first BEFORE & AFTER photo was taken immediately before and immediately afterward. The immediate results were even noticeable! However, they told me to wait 48 hours to see the full results of the treatment. The second before and after photo was taken 48 hours after in similar lighting and I did not have face makeup on in any of the photos. HOW CRAZY?!

Yesterday I visited the brand new Bowtox Boutique Med Spa location in Lakewood Ranch for my cheek filler procedure. I have had cheek filler in Sarasota in the past, but this was my first experience at the office on Lake Osprey drive. It is absolutely beautiful. The waiting room is modern and spotless and the ladies in the office are so sweet and extremely knowledgeable in each of their roles.
You may be wondering what to expect if you've never had injections, so let me give you a little more detail! The injector I worked with yesterday was Aleena Gurskiy, APRN, Nurse Practitioner, and Aesthetic Injector. Aleena is very personable, professional, and she made sure I was at ease and knew what to expect before, during and after the procedure.
First, she did a consultation for me by assessing which product to use, where to place it and she made a recommendation for how much I may need. From there she walked me through the procedure, applied the numbing cream to my cheeks and, went to grab the 2 syringes of Restylane Lyft. We decided on one syringe per cheek.
The injection process is fairly quick. Aleena made about 5 to 6 small injections along each cheek, checking multiple times to make sure they were perfectly symmetrical. While the process is slightly uncomfortable, it's nowhere near as painful as lip injections. I would liken the pain level to a pinch that stings for a moment, maybe a 2-3 on the pain level scale.
Before I knew it, we were all done and she cleaned the area and applied Arnica cream to prevent bruising. She gave me an ice pack to help with the swelling and I was good to go! I can't recommend the Bowtox Boutique enough. They are definitely my go-to MedSpa for Cheek Filler in Sarasota.
Check out my awesome before and after! I love the subtle cheek pop that adds a more sculpted look to my face. The aftercare was pretty simple, I was a bit sore yesterday so I took some Aleve and just kept icing my cheeks. Today they are feeling much better. The full swelling will be gone in two weeks!
If you're a Sarasota/Lakewood Ranch local too, I highly recommend giving either of the locations a call for a consult! You can reach the Sarasota location at (941) 360-2869 and the Lakewood Ranch location at (941) 359-2869! Tell them Britt sent you.
