Amaris, Office Manager
Amaris has been with Blue Water Spa and Michael Law MD Aesthetic Plastic Surgery since 2005.
Favorite Charity: As a proud fur parent I appreciate the work being done by Second Chance Pet Adoptions. Every pet deserves to be spoiled rotten in a loving home and Second Chance works to not only find homes for strays and rescues but also focuses on educating people on responsible pet ownership thru education, services and programs. And if like me and you have reached your “pet capacity”, you don’t have to adopted in order to make a difference. They have a program where you can sponsor a pet for a nominal fee. This will ensure the animal receives the care it needs while waiting for a loving home, plus as a bonus you get a beautiful picture of the sponsored animal and note cards to share with others.
Favorite Treatment & Product at Blue Water Spa: One of my favorite treatments is injectables. I love being the only one carded at a restaurant table full of friends my age. Many women might be shy about sharing with others that they get Botox® or Juvedérm® but I will take being mistaken for being in my 20’s any day! I also love Purity Clean- it helps keep my skin clear and bright.
Who Inspires You: I would have to say that the biggest inspiration in my life is my husband and our daughter. They have taught me how to be a better wife and mother and opened the door to unconditional love, limitless happiness and unbounded joy. Their ability to enjoy life, open their hearts to love and not sweat the small stuff despite whatever difficulty they face is a constant inspiration to me.

Favorite Charity: As an avid animal lover, World Wildlife Fund is close to my heart. Since 1961, they have put forth great effort to stop violence and crime against wildlife on a global scale. They work to protect vulnerable, endangered, and critically endangered species. They allow you adopt a species to help support conservation. There are over one hundred species to choose from, and you can choose based on highest threat. All life deserves to be preserved. The work that WWF does has stopped species from disappearing, while protecting their natural habitats.
Favorite Treatment at Blue Water Spa: My favorite treatment is the 80 minute deep tissue massage. It is the ultimate relaxation. Once you have an 80 minute massage, you will never go back to a 50 minute!

Favorite Charity: My family grew up poor AND with foster kids, so love and generosity is instilled in me by my parents, and I have been on both sides of charity. The program that I currently work with is called Christian Life Home. It is a home for pregnant young girls and helps teach the girls that they are loved and prepares them to live the rest of their lives in a healthy way. I was young when I had my daughter so I have a heart for these girls who are in a desperate situation.
Favorite Treatment & Product at Blue Water Spa: Choosing a favorite spa treatment is like choosing my favorite child. I love them all for all their uniqueness. The Peels, Microdermabrasions, and Laser Hair Removal are best for results while the Signature Facial, Massage, and Lymphatic Drainage treatments are so relaxing that I feel like I am floating. I use a variety of products lines on my skin because each line has a different purpose, but I think Hylunia is my favorite all around skin care line at Blue Water Spa.
Favorite Childhood Memory: Because money was tight, we lived in Washington State, and my parents were old hippies, our family vacations when I was a child were almost always camping. The lakes in Washington are clean and cool and the trees are lush and tall. We were allowed to bring friends and bikes and eat marshmallows anytime we wanted.

Favorite Charity: My favorite charity is MDA which stands for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. This charity raises money for children with MD to be able to attend specialty summer camps with other children affected by MD. In high school a club I was apart of held charity events in order to raise money for MDA. We sent about 10 children to summer camps through our efforts and that is a great feeling! In the future I hope to continue to work with MDA and support the children it helps!
Favorite Treatment at Blue Water Spa: My favorite spa service would be the Microdermabliss! It is incredibly relaxing and effective.

Favorite Charity: St. Jude Children’s Hospital because it helps children live. No child is denied. They help with prevention & cures for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
Favorite Treatment at Blue Water Spa:I love injectables. Especially the Botox and Juvederm. Both treatments tend to soften lines and filler gives fullness and volume. Thus leading to a more youthful “age gracefully” appearance. I love just wearing our Elta Tinted sunscreen with hyaluronic acid. It is wonderful having SPF and a built in moisturizer with just a hint of tint to promote an even skin tone.
Who Inspires You: My two boys! Their unconditional love and kindness makes me strive to me the greatest mother I can be. Watching them grow and to see their hard work, dedication & discipline for school, work and sports makes me so proud to be their mom. I know their talents will give them many paths to choose from in the future. They give me strength to accomplish great things, take risks, not to be afraid of failure, and allow to make mistakes and learn from them.

Shea, Laser Technician

Favorite Charity: I appreciate any and all charities that rescue and properly re-home animals, especially but not limited to, dogs. Most recently, I have been involved with Australian Shepherd rescue and I have two of these smart, wonderful dogs in my life. Mac is my older Aussie and at 17 years old he still keeps me on my toes with his brains and zest for life!
Favorite Treatment at Blue Water Spa: My favorite Blue Water Spa treatment is Laser Skin Tightening. As far as keeping skin looking it’s best and smoothest, this is the treatment to get. I love that it helps keep any acne breakouts to a minimum and the overall glow I get from it. My favorite product is the BWS Vitamin C Serum and it pairs beautifully with the Laser Skin Tightening.
Who Inspires Me: There are so many awesome people in my life but if I have to choose I would say my Mom and Dad. They’ve been married for 42 years and are still going strong. I definitely try to follow their example in positive attitude and a happy outlook on life. It makes rolling with the punches that much easier!
Farrah, Spa Assistant
Farrah has been with Blue Water Spa and Michael Law MD Aesthetic Plastic Surgery since 2014.
Favorite Charity: My favorite charity is UNICEF because of its focus on children welfare. Children are the future of our society and must be given every opportunity and understanding that people care about their wellbeing to ensure they have a happy and stable life. UNICEF uses resources to work toward getting children in third world and developing countries educated, nourished, and sheltered. There are so many kids that do’t have the opportunity to go to school and understand how much potential they have, but UNICEF provides children with that type of opportunity, which I think is amazing.
Favorite Product: I love the Mandelic cleanser because no matter how bad my acne is at the time, immediately after I use it, I already see a difference in my skin. The Mandelic cleanser eliminates acne from my list of things to stress about.
Favorite Quote: My favorite quote is: “When you get older, you realize you have two hands: one for helping yourself and the other for helping others” Audrey Hepburn. I read this quote almost every day to remind myself of what I am working towards for my future. I have to remember that before I can dedicate my life to helping other people, I need to first better myself in order to share the resources and knowledge I will have developed throughout my education and career.
Sinead, Concierge Services
Sinead has been with Blue Water Spa and Michael Law MD Aesthetic Plastic Surgery since 2015.
Favorite Charity: As a passionate dog lover, one of my favorite charities is the American Pit Bull Foundation. It is the first organization that helps train rescued pit bulls to become service dogs. They can also be adopted by individuals who they see fit. I truly believe that the owner of an animal has everything to do with their behavior.
Favorite Treatment at Blue Water Spa: My favorite spa service would be the chemical peels! It is relaxing and also leaves your skin feeling tight and replenished. I also love that they can be customized for every skin type!
Who Inspires You: Both of my parents inspire me. They moved to the United States for a better educational opportunity. While only speaking Spanish, they managed to learn English while taking classes in college, and graduated. They are the reason I believe that anything you want in life is possible!
Kayla, Laser Technician
Kayla has been with Blue Water Spa and Michael Law MD Aesthetic Plastic Surgery since 2016.
Favorite Charity: There are a group of individuals that network with each other all over North Carolina that work on saving animals from smaller shelters in rural counties surrounding the triangle. Due to the fact that there are fewer rescues, more abandoned animals, and smaller shelters in these rural counties, animals have a very short time frame to get adopted or picked up by a rescue. These men and women volunteer countless hours to network these animals to find adopters or rescues, get fosters and pledges to help attract more rescues, and try to save the animals who may not have had a chance due to health conditions, breed, or abandonment issues. Their goal is to save as many as they can and rehabilitate animals who have already had a tough road.
Favorite Treatment at Blue Water Spa: Latisse is by far my favorite product. It does wonders for those who have short or thin eyelashes. I have been using it for about a year now and my lashes have never been fuller or longer.

Favorite Treatment at Blue Water Spa: Micro-needling is my favorite treatment because it is quick, easy, results oriented, and addresses a wide variety of skin concerns.
Who Inspires You: I can thank my grandmother for inspiring me to go down the aesthetics route. From the time I was a child I was obsessed with her beauty and fascinated by her china doll look.
