I had been given a lovely and thoughtful gift of a few BBL treatments a few years ago and really enjoyed them. It wasn’t until I was learning how to do the treatments myself, that I truly grasped what BBL could offer. As a Registered Nurse, this wasn’t an area of medicine that I knew much about but as took courses and prepared to work at Second Spring Medical Aesthetics and Laser it quickly became my favorite treatment to perform.

We had so much fun at our open house and hope you did, too. Did you enjoy the give aways as much as we enjoyed meeting new and current patients? Dr. Shelby Bentz and the rest of the Second Spring staff are always happy to answer questions about the medical aesthetics and laser procedures we offer.
We always appreciate hearing and reading the kind words of our satisfied patients. Are you loving your Second Spring experience? Let us know, and thanks!
“My experience with Dr. Shelby Bentz has been a wonderful one. She is a very good doctor with a great bedside manner and a great personality. She is so nice and it is such a joy to see her and talk with her during my procedures. She is really caring when it comes to her patients and how they feel. Throughout all the procedures I’ve had, she was always asking if I was OK and great at explaining what exactly was going to happen or how it would feel when we started. And the results have been amazing. Her pricing is great and I couldn’t be happier with her and plan to continue to go to her for everything I might need or want in the future.”
