Nearly 1 in 10 Americans receiving a tax refund in 2016 plans to make a “splurge purchase,” such as dinner out, clothing, or a trip to the spa, as the National Retail Federation reported in its annual Tax Returns Survey.
If you are among the 8.3% who plan to spend a portion of your refund on a spa treatment or other special treat, there are a few services in particular that will go a long way toward renewing your outer “glow.” You know, the glow that was perhaps dulled by all those long working hours!
Here’s what the ladies at Spa One at The Plastic Surgery Group here in Albany recommend with a budget under $200:
- Massage Therapy: It is our belief that taking time to listen to and pamper your body is beneficial — not only for your beauty, but also your health. Massage therapy is a wonderful way to do just that. At Spa One, we offer a complete line of massage treatments to relax even the most worn-out muscles. We use aromatherapy, reflexology, hot stones, and warm towels to help you de-stress.
- Facial: Essentially a massage for your face, a facial helps to cleanse, balance, and restore your complexion to help you look refreshed and more youthful. Our facials are customized to meet your unique skin care needs and include deep cleansing and exfoliation. The experienced estheticians at our spa will help you decide on the best option for your skin.
- Medical-Grade Skin Care Products: Skin care products, especially of the higher-end medical-grade variety, might seem like a splurge. But when you choose the right products and use them well, your investment will pay off in the end with beautiful skin. It’s better to buy a quality product that will last than a variety of inexpensive products that may not add up to noticeable results. Our staff is helpful when it comes to choosing the best products. Stop by the spa for a recommendation and some free samples!
These are just a few options for post-tax refund splurges. Each spring, we also meet men and women who set aside some of their refund for a larger investment, such as laser hair removal, liposuction, or breast augmentation. Our Albany plastic surgery practice works in tandem with the medical spa, so if we can help you with any combination of surgical or nonsurgical options, please feel free to contact The Plastic Surgery Group online, and we’ll reach out to you to schedule a consultation.
