Spa memberships are here — enroll in milk money now

August 7, 2023
milk money — more than a membership

We are excited to announce that we’re launching our brand new milk money membership program. 

Over the years we have offered different membership programs where our guests paid a monthly fee in return for receiving a service once a month. This worked for some guests but we received feedback that this model wasn’t ideal for anyone with a busy schedule, who liked to receive different service types, or who regularly get services like medSPA treatments or haircuts that didn’t happen on a monthly basis. Furthermore, it was sometimes stressful when you had to schedule one treatment within a calendar month or pause your membership.

So, we went back to the drawing board and created a membership program, milk money, which offers the ultimate flexibility and value for our guests.

Our members choose a tier of membership — Signature, Lux, or Ultimate — and agree to monthly membership payments. The payments —“milk money” — accrue on a monthly basis and can be applied to any product or service that we offer. Think of milk money as a bank where you make a monthly deposit which you use at the spa for your favorite services and products at any time.

In return for making a monthly milk money deposit, our members receive:

Up to a 15% discount on our products and services (including spa, salon, and medSPA) depending on their membership level.

  • Ultimate-level members receive a 10% discount on gift certificates purchased for others.
  • An exclusive discount code to share when their friends are scheduled for services at the same time. 
  • Exclusive access to our reservation and concierge teams, making booking by phone, email, or text seamless.
  • Access to last-minute appointments and exclusive member-only specials.
  • No annual contracts are required — members may cancel at any time  (after three months) and any milk money that has been accrued can be spent on any of our products and services after the membership has been canceled. So, signing up is low-risk and easy.

Here’s how the membership levels work:


Whether you enjoy an Ultimate Retreat once a year, receive medSPA services every four months, come in for a weekly blowout, or purchase gift certificates for your employees around holiday time, we know you will benefit from this program.  


If you would like to learn more about the milk money program, please visit us here or speak to our concierge team at (844) 645-5772. And if you’re ready to sign up, you can do so in our locations, over the phone, or you can do so online.

Winter Skin Care: Skincare Routine & Tips

November 1, 2021

Winter weather can wreak havoc on your skin. Dry, cracked, and dull skin, unfortunately, are common issues your skin can face while dealing with the colder temperatures, and as we crank up the heat inside, the dry air can also cause a whole slew of different issues. Caring for your dry skin in winter is important, so here is a skincare routine and some additional tips to help keep your skin feeling glowy, hydrated, and healthy.


Winter Skin Care Routine

The first step to ensuring your skin stays supple and hydrated through the cold winter months is to adjust your skincare routine. When the temperatures drop, humidity levels drop as well; as a result, it’s important to ensure your skincare routine is gentle and hydrating to seal in moisture and keep your skin looking its best. Here are some tips to switch up your routine to fight off dry skin in the winter:

  1. Wash with a gentle cleanser: When cleansing your skin, swap out your foaming cleanser and opt for a gentler formulation like a balm, oil, or cream. Foaming cleansers can strip the skin of its moisture and disrupt the skin barrier. Balm, oil, and cream cleansers aren’t as harsh and are just as effective at washing your skin. Consider using cleansers that are fragrance free and don’t contain large quantities of harsh ingredients like alcohol.milk + honey cleansing balm
  2. Incorporate a good exfoliator: A gentle exfoliator can help remove dead skin skills and reveal softer, glowing skin. Not only does exfoliating help your moisturizer absorb better, but it also helps create a smooth base for makeup application. That being said, don’t over do it! Choose between a chemical exfoliant or gentle physical exfoliant and use it once a week. You can bump it up to two times a week if your skin can tolerate it.milk + honey exfoliating toner
  3. Use a daily moisturizer: Moisturize with a rich cream or oil-based moisturizer in the winter. They are more effective than lotions at locking in moisture and hydrating the skin’s outer layers. Don’t forget to also moisturize your hands, since they often come into contact with water and are exposed to the cold air.milk + honey intense hydration cream
  4. Always carry lip balm with you: Your lips can be exceptionally sensitive to the colder weather, so it’s best to keep them moisturized and protected. Use occlusive balms to seal moisture in, and consider using a lip mask at night to make sure your lips stay hydrated through the night.milk + honey lip balm
  5. Wear sunscreen daily: It’s important that you continue to wear sunscreen as part of your winter skin care routine. Even if the day is gray and snowy, sunscreen ensures your skin is staying protected from harmful damage caused by UV rays.
  6. Incorporate skincare oils: Use a hydrating oil after applying your moisturizer. Oils can add an extra layer of moisture to help keep your skin hydrated in the winter and provide antibacterial and healing properties to keep your skin looking its best.milk + honey face oil
  7. Use a heavier nighttime cream: Night creams contain ingredients that hydrate your skin slowly over several hours. This ensures that you wake up in the morning with plump, hydrated skin. In the long term, night creams can reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve your skin’s elasticity.
  8. Use an overnight mask: If a heavy night cream isn’t cutting it, consider investing in an overnight mask. Overnight masks can help lock in your products, like oils, creams, and serums, to keep everything working more effectively without evaporating away. Masks don’t only seal in your winter skin care products, but they also provide a barrier from the dry, cold air, to prevent further moisture loss. For extra hydration, keep a humidifier on throughout the night to ensure the air around you isn’t drying out your skin.
  9. Incorporate hydrating ingredients into your winter skincare routine: Changing your skin care routine can seem like a daunting task – but it doesn’t have to be! Look for these ingredients to build out your own ultimate winter skincare routine:
    • Hyaluronic acid – Hyaluronic acid helps bind and retain water molecules so that skin can appear dewier and more hydrated.
    • Ceramides – Ceramides help create a barrier to lock in moisture into your skin, which helps prevent dryness and irritation.
    • Lipids – Lipids, such as grapeseed oil, can help shield and protect the skin from the dry air to promote moisture retention.
    • Aloe vera – Aloe vera is a soothing ingredient that can help alleviate the pain of cracked skin and can help along with the healing process. Not only can it heal your cracked skin, it also can add an extra layer of moisture and protection to your skin.
    • Lactic acid – Lactic acid is a gentle exfoliant that helps remove accumulated dead skin cells on the top layer of the skin. Find products with lactic acid if you feel physical exfoliation is too rough on your skin.
    • Glycerin – Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it helps draw water to the skin to make sure your skin remains feeling hydrated and refreshed.

Winter Skin Care Tips

Once you have a winter skin care routine down, it’s important to get in the habit of protecting your skin, both indoors and outdoors. Follow these additional winter skin care tips to ensure your skin stays healthy and hydrated in the winter:

  • Invest in a humidifier: With cold weather comes dry air – both inside and outside. Invest in a humidifier to make sure that enough moisture is in the air to prevent your skin from drying out.
  • Avoid hot baths & showers: Hot water can irritate sensitive or dry skin. Try to use lukewarm water when taking a shower or a bath. You’ll also want to limit how much time you spend in the shower to avoid stripping the moisture from your skin.
  • Wear comfortable, non-irritating clothing: When going outside, wear clothing that can act as a barrier between you and the elements. Wear gloves, ear muffs, and scarves and make sure you’re choosing fabrics that aren’t scratchy or irritating.
  • Lower the thermostat: Turning up the thermostat can contribute to dry air that can cause cracked, dull skin. Consider turning it down to a cozy 68°F to 72°F to ensure your skin stays hydrated while indoors.
  • Moisturize frequently: If you feel your skin getting dry throughout the day, carry a small cream or balm with you that you can apply while on-the-go. Don’t forget to also grab your lip balm!
  • Layer your skincare: Layer your skincare to help lock in moisture to prevent dry skin during the winter season. A good rule of thumb is to layer lightest to heaviest (toner, serum, moisturizer, oil, cream/mask).

The Ultimate Guide to Laser Skin Resurfacing

September 15, 2021
laser skin resurfacing

What is laser skin resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing, also called lasabrasion, laser pelling, or laser vaporization is the process of using lasers to help reduce a wide variety of skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, blemishes from your skin. 


Types of Lasers

There are two types of lasers used in laser skin resurfacing, that is ablative lasers and non-ablative lasers. Each type of laser has its own advantages, and this guide will help you determine which type of laser is best for you. These two types are ablative and nonablative lasers. 

  • Ablative lasers – These lasers work by removing the outer layer of skin known as the epidermis and stimulates the underlying skin, the dermis. These types of treatments are more invasive, making them a better choice for treating mild to moderate wrinkles, facial scarring, and skin discoloration. You will see results after one treatment, but the recovery process will be longer. As the epidermis heals and regrows, the treated area appears smoother and tighter. Types of ablative treatments include the following.
    • Fractional C02
    • Erbium 
    • Combination systems
  • Nonablative laser– These lasers improve the appearance of mild wrinkles, minor scars, and discolorations like liver spots by heating the skin without injuring the surface of the skin. These lasers stimulate collagen growth, which over time helps improve skin tone and texture. This approach can be done with various types of lasers as well as intense Broadband light (BBL). Non-Ablative laser resurfacing is less invasive and requires less recovery time than ablative laser resurfacing.
    • ND: Yag
    • Broadband light
    • Moxi


What can laser skin resurfacing treat?

Laser skin resurfacing can be used to treat a number of skin conditions. 

  • Wrinkles
  • Skin irregularities such as acne scars or blemishes
  • Aged or sun damaged skin
  • Eczema
  • Stretch marks
  • Warts
  • Liver spots
  • Birthmarks
  • Enlarged oil glands
  • Tattoos 

Who can get laser 

Laser skin resurfacing is a good option if you have been trying over the counter products of one of the above skin conditions without results. You should consult your doctor if you have one of the following disqualifiers. 

  • Have taken the acne medication isotretinoin during the previous year
  • Have an autoimmune disease or a weak immune system
  • Have had radiation therapy on your face
  • Are prone to cold sores or have had a recent outbreak of cold sores or herpes virus
  • Have a darker skin tone
    • Certain lasers do not work as well with darker skin tones, but your surgeon will know which is best (like Erbium or Moxi)
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding


Who performs the procedure? 

There is a lot of information floating around about what qualifications are adequate.You should have your surgery performed by a plastic surgeon or dermatologist certified by one of three boards. The top tier of qualification would be a surgeon certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). This is the highest standard for specialty medical practice and physicians must meet the highest standard to become Board Certified. To become certified by the ABMS, a surgeon must have at least six years of surgical training, as well as an accredited plastic surgery training program. They must also complete thousands of hours of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery procedures, and pass a rigorous written and oral examination, as well as continued education to maintain their accreditation. The ABMS recognizes two other boards, the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The ABMS does not certify cosmetic surgeons. Many cosmetic surgeons are certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS) however this board is not recognized by the ABMS. The requirements to become certified by the ABCS are much less rigorous, they require experience in 300 procedures along with one oral and written exam, there are no continued education requirements. In 2018 California ruled that ABCS was denied the right to advertise as “Board Certified”. Use this link to find out if your surgeon is an ABMS Certified practitioner.

Things to know before your laser skin resurfacing appointment 

If you get cold sores or fever blisters around your mouth, laser skin resurfacing can trigger breakouts. 10 days before your appointment you should refrain from taking supplements and medications such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and vitamin E. NASID’s (non steroid anti inflammatory drugs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen thin your blood and make it harder for damaged skin to clot. This could lead to excessive bleeding after your procedure so it is best to avoid these starting 10 days before your appointment. 

Depending on your procedure, you will likely receive some form of anesthetic. Some non-invasive forms of anesthetic include topical creams, cryoanesthesia, or a combination of both. Some more invasive forms include nerve blockers, a local anesthetic injection, and finally supervised anesthesia. 


Types of lasers and their specialties 

Fractional C02

Laser to the dermis deeper layer of skin, laser stimulates and rejuvenates cells to produce collagen and produces a more natural appearance,  blending with the surrounding skin, the end result is more elastic skin, improved texture and quality, and more youthful appearance.Results produce lasting a natural results, your skin rejuvenates itself

Recovery happens in two phases

  1. 7-10 days after treatment, changes to texture and quality, smoother skin and improvements in fine lines and wrinkles
  2. 12 months after- full effects, body will produce new collagen and improve elasticity, tightening, and help even out skin tone 

Broadband Light (BBL)

Targets signs of aging, sun damage, and other skin conditions. BBL can treat brown pigmentation often found in aging spots or freckles. BBL can also target vascular problems such as smaller blood vessels, excess redness, and rosacea. 

  • How it works: BBL targets the upper layer of your skin, gently heating it. This heat stimulates your skin cells to regenerate. If your target is redness, the blood vessels will absorb the energy causing them to close off, following treatment your body will reabsorb the destroyed vessels. If you are targeting a brown spot, such as a freckle or liver spot, the laser will target the pigmented particles, breaking them up. 7-14 days after your treatment those spots will peel off.
  • How many treatments will you need?: Your treatment should be personalized based on your needs. Typically complete corrections require 3-4 treatments.
  • Recovery: After your treatment you will have redness that may feel like a sunburn. Depending on the area of treatment you may experience swelling for a day or two. After vascular treatment you may see what looks like bruising, this is from the blood of the targeted vessels. Be sure to use sunscreen after your treatment as your skin will be more sensitive to sunlight.


A non ablative fractional laser resurfacing treatment that can aid in the correction of the initial signs of sun damage and aging by fixing uneven pigmentation and improving the general tone and texture of the skin by way of collagen stimulation. Moxi is designed to treat all skin types. Moxi also works particularly well with younger patients, or those who are just starting their skincare journey, as it is quick, effective, and has a short recovery period. Because it is non ablative, the recovery time for moxi is a lot shorter than say a Fractional C02 treatment. Moxi is a quick procedure that is usually completed within 30 minutes. Moxi lasers produce gentile micro-pulses to induce controlled damage to desired targeted areas. Your body will naturally remove these damaged cells and replace them with new cells, resulting in fresh and vibrant new skin.

Recovery with moxi is very quick, with patients being able to apply makeup as soon as 24 hours after their treatment. 

Erbium (Er:YAG)

Lasers can be ablative or non-ablative. Erbium treatmetns promote collagen remodeling, making them popular options for treating fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and age spots.The Erbium laser emits light that is absorbed by water as the light hits the skin which vaporizes the tissues holding that water. This controlled vaporization of the superficial skin cells leads to collagen remodeling and healing, as it stimulates the formation of collagen which will tighten the skin further. The object is to damage the skin to stimulate it just enough to promote healing. This damage will be similar to a burn and afterwards with potential for the skin to ooze. Deeper wrinkles require more treatment, while shallow scars and wrinkles may be completely erased after just one treatment.

Healing typically takes around a week. There may be mild swelling and inflammation, but it will recede within a week’s time. Keep the area clean, and you may be given an antibiotic ointment.


Neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet is a crystal that is used as a medium for solid state lasers. This laser works by emitting a high energy wavelength of light which, when focused on certain skin conditions, will create heat and destroy diseased cells. ND Yag can treat a wide range of conditions including vascular lesions, pigmented lesions such as liver spots and freckles , hair removal, and even tattoo removal. The vascular conditions ND yag can treat include, varicose veins, spider veins, facial veins, vascular birthmarks and vascular tumors. 


Maintenance/upkeep after a laser skin resurfacing treatment

After your procedure is completed you will need to keep the treated area clean. You will want to clean the area 4 to 5 times a day, as well as applying an ointment such as petroleum jelly to prevent the area from scabbing over. Depending on your swelling, you may be prescribed steroids to help the swelling. You will likely be itchy in the areas where your treatment took place, this will subside within a few days. Typically 10- 20 days after you start your healing you can start wearing oil free makeup. 

After surgery you should be using a broad spectrum sunscreen as your new skin is more susceptible to sun damage. You want a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects your skin from both UV-A and UV-B rays. You also want to choose a sunscreen with a high zinc oxide content that is at least spf 30. If you can use clothing to protect your skin that is a better option than sunscreen as you don’t have to worry about reapplication. Keep your skin moist with an ointment like petroleum jelly, this will promote your skin to heal and prevent scabs.

What Is Lymphatic Drainage Massage and How to Do It At Home

September 15, 2021
self massage

Over the last year or so, people from every corner of the world had to pivot quickly to land on their feet when things went awry. In the hustle to morph our homes into makeshift offices,  command centers, and even classrooms, it’s entirely possible that there were plenty of things that may have slipped through the cracks. Undoubtedly, ergonomic desk setups, desk posture, and self-care are high on that list. 

Fast forward more than a year later, and here we are. Many of us are still sitting at awkward desk setups, probably for longer daily stints than we’d like. At the end of the day (both literally and figuratively), our neck and back muscles are likely paying the price through the accumulation of toxins that build up over time. 

Indeed, by this point, the knots in your neck might be in need of a little TLC, and a self-massage with lymphatic massage therapy can certainly help. 

While you can book a consultation with one of our licensed massage therapists, it’s understandable if you’re not quite ready to visit a spa just yet. If that’s the case, rest assured that doing self-massage at home can be equally beneficial for promoting lymphatic drainage. Ahead we take a closer look at what lymphatic drainage is, the benefits of a lymphatic drainage massage, and we share some tips for how you can do it at home. 


What is lymphatic drainage?

The lymphatic system is a network of connective tissues and organs that is responsible for draining and removing excess fluid and waste from your body. Additionally, the lymphatic system also transports fats, water, proteins, and toxins to lymph nodes which are small clusters of cells located throughout the body that contain immune cells and work to fight infection. 

Lymphatic drainage is the process by which your lymphatic system moves toxins out of your body tissues into the lymph nodes so they can be eliminated. Lymphatic drainage works by pulling toxins out of body tissues and transporting them through a fluid called lymph using lymph vessels, into the lymph nodes where the toxins are removed. Once toxins are removed, the result is fresh lymph fluid that continues circulating throughout the body to pick up and remove more toxins. 

However, the flow of lymph can be slowed down or blocked if toxins build up in a particular area resulting in a condition known as lymphedema. With lymphedema, you may notice swelling and reduced range of motion in the affected area. More importantly, the disrupted lymphatic drainage process reduces the effectiveness of your immune system because the removal of toxins is slowed down. To address lymphedema, you can use lymphatic drainage massage to help restore the natural flow of lymph fluid.


What is lymphatic drainage massage?

Lymphatic drainage massage is a type of gentle massage that promotes the movement of lymph fluid throughout the body. Essentially, the skin is gently stretched and released over known lymphatic pathways.

For most spas, lymphatic massage therapy is considered a cornerstone technique for reducing inflammation and fatigue, and it is often used to help rid the body of toxins. Moreover, lymphatic massage can help reduce stress and anxiety, boost your immune function, and glowing skin when performed on the face. 


How to do a lymphatic drainage massage at-home 

Lymphatic massage therapy is relatively easy to perform on your own, but it’s important to remember that the key to a successful outcome is light pressure. Essentially you’re only rubbing your skin and stretching it gently toward your lymph nodes. If you happen to feel the muscle under your skin, you’re likely pressing too hard, so a good rule of thumb is to use your finger pads only, not your palms. 

One of the best areas to do lymphatic drainage massage is your neck, because it contains some of the largest lymph nodes in your body. To begin, rest your fingertips in the triangular dip just above your collarbone. And again, with an extremely light touch, gently and slowly stretch the skin in a downward motion. 

Next, place your hands flat on the back of your neck, right at the base of the skull on either side of the spine. Then stretch the skin towards your spine and move your fingers down toward the base of your neck, and release. 

Finally, place your full right hand across your neck, resting your index finger on your jaw. With light contact and just enough pressure to gently stretch your skin, move your hands in a downward motion toward your collarbone. 

While it may take some time to get the hang of a lymphatic drainage massage, you may find that if you keep at it, you’ll feel a little less stressed and a bit more relaxed. 


When to visit a professional for lymphatic drainage massage

If you’re experiencing severe swelling or reduced range of motion in a particular area, you should talk with your doctor to discuss treatment options. They may recommend a combination of exercises, treatment lotions, and lymphatic massage therapy to help.

While at-home lymphatic massage therapy can be helpful for mild issues or as part of your regular body-care routine, for severe or ongoing issues a professional massage therapist is recommended. If you’re interested in scheduling a professional massage, book an appointment at your local milk + honey spa.

What is a BBL Photofacial and How Does It Work?

August 24, 2021
laser skin treatment

If you’re considering getting a BBL photofacial but would like to know more, learn everything you need to know including what it is, how it works, and other helpful info to help you decide if this treatment is right for you.

What Is A BBL Photofacial? 

BroadBand Light (BBL) photofacials are a popular laser treatment for the face or other areas that can treat acne, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation. Additionally, this popular treatment also addresses other common skin concerns like those associated with aging and sun damage. BBL photofacials have been shown to effectively treat age spots, sun spots, and spider veins, and it can even reduce the prominence of freckles and some birthmarks. 


How Do BBL Photofacials Work?

Often confused with laser treatments, BBL photofacials are actually different. Instead of the more focused light of a laser, the BBL procedure uses non-invasive light waves to target and treat trouble spots and damaged tissue due. Moreover, laser treatments operate on a single laser wavelength, whereas BBL uses a broad spectrum of light that can be filtered in myriad ways to treat different skin conditions. Another notable difference is that BBL treatments can also treat a larger area of skin than a laser.

Most practitioners and skin care professionals will agree that BBL photofacials are the gold standard as far as laser treatments are concerned. Not only does it effectively treat a slew of skincare issues, but it’s also the only photofacial that changes and even reverses the expression of the genes associated with aging.

3 Reasons To Get A Back Facial

August 24, 2021
woman's back

While the focus of most skincare routines is squarely on the face and maybe even the neck, there are a few other parts of your body that stand to benefit from a little TLC from time to time. 

While most people are familiar with the benefits of a regular facial, it’s likely they don’t think about their back in the same way. But the truth is a back facial can help clean, tone, and exfoliate a part of your body that’s often forgotten or taken for granted.

And as we approach the height of the summer, you’ll also find that a revitalizing back treatment could help you pull off a backless top, a sexy dress, and of course, that swimsuit you’ve been waiting to debut. 


What Is A Back Facial?

Performed by a licensed esthetician, a back facial, like the one offered by Milk + Honey, typically begins with gentle cleansing and exfoliation, which is then followed by extractions, a masque, and oil-free hydration.

How Long Do Medspa Treatments Last?

August 24, 2021
medspa treatments

Milk + Honey offers our clients a wide variety of medspa treatments to help them look and feel their best. Ahead, we take a look at some of our most popular procedures, what they’re good for, and how long the results from the treatment will last. 


Injectables and fillers 

Injectables and fillers are minimally invasive med spa procedures that restore volume and lift the face. These products can be used all over the face to plump, smooth, and minimize the look of moderate to severe wrinkles. Dermal fillers can also be used under the eyes to diminish the look of bags and dark circles. 

How long do injectables and fillers last?

The longevity of dermal fillers and injectables depends on quite a few factors, including the type of filler used, the injection location, and even the patient’s individual metabolism. Some fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, while others can last up to 5 years. 

For example, Milk + Honey offers a collection of 5 different Juvederm products to treat our client’s specific needs. And while these products all fall under the Juvederm line of soft tissue fillers, their longevity tends to vary as follows: 

  • Juvederm Vollure – Up to 18 months
  • Juvederm Voluma –  up to 2 years
  • Juvederm Ultra –  up to one year
  • Juvederm Volbella –  up to 1 year
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus – Up to 1 year
