A Quick Guide to the Best Body Treatments in Town

Hi, y’all! I’m a local Knoxville blogger who is here to give you the inside scoop on all things local. This month, I’m focusing on my five favorite spa treatments and where to get them done. 

1. Dermaplaning – Shea Aesthetic Clinic

Yes, this is the “shave your face trend” that has exploded on YouTube. Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). This makes my skin so smooth and helps my makeup look flawless.

2. Hydrafacial – Shea Aesthetic Clinic

These are my new favorite kinds of facials because my skin is left feeling hydrated. It’s a facial that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. Hydrafacials are an absolute favorite monthly spa treatment.

3. Microneedling – Aesthetics Skin Solutions Med Spa

Microneedling is a dermaroller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles and large pores.

4. Facials – Pure Luxe Spa

They offer more than 10 different types of facials and have the best day spa packages in West Knoxville, from a girls’ day out to a couple’s retreat.

5. IV Hydration – Revitalist

I wish I would’ve had IV hydration therapy when I was pregnant with my kids. I suffer from HG (Hyperemesis Gravidarum), and this could have completely changed my health during pregnancy. Hydration Therapy restores your body with direct hydration and nutrient replenishment in ways that drinking water cannot.
