A GUIDE TO MOTHER’S DAYHome » Blog » 2019 » May
While moms deserve to be celebrated every day of the year, Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to take full advantage of expressing your love. We realize that nothing feels adequate enough for all the thanks our moms deserve. Even still, we’re here to share some inspiration of ways you can make this Mother’s Day a special one.

Even if her kids are all grown up, being a mom is no relaxing task. Sometimes it takes someone she loves to stop her in her tracks so she’ll pause and take some time for herself. Our practice offers a robust range of aesthetic services that will not only allow her to relax, but will also pamper her and her skin. Treat her to a procedure like dermaplaning, which is a safe and painless treatment where we use a sterile surgical blade to exfoliate dull skin and gently shave off the dead skin cells for a natural glow. We also offer other aesthetic treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or facials that use medical grade skin care that’s tailored to her unique needs.
Some other fail-safe ways she’ll love to be pampered? Consider treating her to a massage, a manicure or a pedicure!
GIVE A GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
Subscriptions or gift cards are a great way to keep giving long after Mother’s Day comes and goes. A handful of treatments we offer aren’t a “one and done” approach and often require follow up visits. Purchasing gift cards to use toward these type of treatments is a great solution to keep giving to mom again and again. While Dr. Biesman can develop a customized plan best suited for your mom’s needs, some popular examples among moms that require multiple visits include:
As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity. Thermage® is a non-invasive, skin-tightening treatment that carefully heats the skin and creates a contouring effect while stimulating your skin’s natural collagen production process. This treatment can not only help mom look her best, but can also play a preventative role to help her maintain her appearance as she ages.
With aging, our faces often lose volume or develop unwanted lines. A great solution to restore a more youthful appearance is with injectable fillers like Juvederm®, Restylane® or Radiesse®. Regardless of which is best for your mother, Dr. Biesman can develop a customized plan to fit her needs.
Other gifts that keep on giving? Consider subscription services that suit her interests, whether it’s a magazine, cosmetics or a wine of the month service!

Regardless of what you plan for Mother’s Day, try to find a way to include an element of surprise. If you plan a brunch together, perhaps you have flowers sent to arrive that she’ll find when she comes home. If you live in different cities, maybe you coordinate with other family members a way you can surprise her with a visit. Or, if she’s a patient at our office, let us help you secretly cover the bill for her next appointment on your behalf. Even if it’s not a grand gesture, surprises are a sweet reminder that you love her and were thinking of her.

If you have memories from your childhood that you remember sharing with your mom, chances are she values and remembers them even more. If you always planted her rose garden together, maybe you bring her roses with a photo of you all in the garden. Or if you had a favorite film to watch together, pop some popcorn and cozy up on the couch together for a trip down memory lane. Whatever it was, find a way to be nostalgic about those moments and show her that you cherish your memories together.
TELL HER YOUR FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT HER
Moms are often culprits of loving everyone else better than themselves. Use your words this Mother’s Day to remind her why she is your superhero. Whether you tell her face to face or you write it out in a card, it’s bound to carry more meaning than you probably even realize.
Some of our favorite things about moms? We have countless patients (and staff!) who are mothers, and they are some of the most incredible women we know. Generous, hard-working, and never hesitating to put the ones they love first, these attributes barely scratch the surface of what it means to be a mom. It is a privilege to serve all of you everyday and to offer some much-deserved care that is so often given to others first.
Wishing all of the moms in our life a very happy Mother’s Day!
