All about Chemical Peels!! Everything you need to know before your first treatment. Chemical peels are acids, which are applied to the skin about once every two or three weeks in either an esthetician or doctor’s office.1-2 Doctors can administer peels in up to 70% strength, and estheticians in spas and salons can administer peels in up to 30% strength. The acid is left on the skin for a few minutes (3-5 is typical) and then removed. Depending on the strength and type of peel, the acids in a chemical peel cause the skin to peel and sometimes blister over a period of a few days. This exfoliation signals the cells inside the skin to regenerate faster, which can help hasten skin turnover, improve skin texture, and prevent pores from becoming clogged.1,3 At this time there is no evidence showing whether any one type of acid works better than another.

Stress Local Spa

Posted by on Feb 15, 2017 in Spa Talk | 0 comments

This is seriously the season for colds; and stuffy noses. Colds that commonly escalade into the dreaded flu. There are vaccinations that we can all receive to prevent the flu. But like most viruses the flu has the capability to mutate and beat the vaccination that’s at hand. We have seen or experienced this through ourselves; loved ones or we have seen it on our local news channel. Schools shutting down weeks at a time because of illness; in hopes of letting the virus run its course without claiming its next victim. To stop the spread from child to child and house hold to household. It’s an annual epidemic we all face every single year. Even though we are faithful to our vaccinations it would still be nice to have a bodily defense that will keep our bodies from turning into a battle ground of cellular destruction. If there was something one could do about defending themselves from this epidemic; would it be done? We have heard endless times that “stress” is the leading killer in the united states. However, have you ever thought deeply into this statement? Think about what stress can cause and how it effects the body. Think now what a simple cold could do to a “stressed” host? If we could eliminate “stress” our body could produce a defense system that would can fend off the worse of colds and could even adapt to fighting off mutant strands. To do this, we would have to eliminate stressed situations or at least keep it to a minimum. To do this one must understand that stress is physical; mental; and emotional and we have to defend all three to eliminate the: stressed” effects on the body. To reduce stress in all three spectrums could be something as simple as how we treat ourselves. Something as simple as an hour or two at the “local spa” could put a deep impact on the “stress relief” module. A simple facial using beneficial products such as peppermint or spearmint could really relieve the abundance of stress and energize the body inside and out. This treatment could be physically soothing; mentally delightful as the body becomes emotionally relaxed. As the natural elements of mother nature rejuvenises the body allowing our defense system to grow stronger. Remember that no one ever gets skipped because a virus is never picky; however, one can be protected more than another. A physically; mentally; emotionally strong body is a healthy happy body and can defend its most important asset; YOU! Treat your body like royalty and it will defend you from all aspects of internal wars. Just a little something to keep in mind when you book your next appointment at your “local spa”....

“The Face” Why Facials?

Posted by on Feb 3, 2017 in Facials | 0 comments

  Why should anyone receive a facial, you ask? Facials can be more benefitting than not and very important to the life and appearance of one of the most seen body parts out there; “the face”. If one washes their face before bed and when they wake; add moisturizers or creams, lotions or potions of any kind; they have just given themselves a type of facial. It is considered a professional Facial when one attends or books a spa type facial service and a trained technician conducts the facial using simple cleansing and steaming products on the basic end to higher end products that include extracts from various plants and herbs. Facials are received to treat surface issues on the face such as moisturizing dry flaky skin; clearing or lighting dark or blotchy like patches. Treating acne is a popular reason one receives frequent facials. These are conducted more so with teens as the adolescent skin rebels in its life changing confused state along with its attached being living the same stages and changes all at once. Restoring skin color is another reason one receives facials along with the wonderful ability to tone the skin. A fabulous reason frequently sought after by the aging. Toning “the face” makes one feel a step closer to the “Fountain of Youth”. When one receives a Facial they are simply receiving a deep skin treatment that will cleanse, rehydrate and rejuvenate the skin and not to forget to mention to diminish the dreadful ageing process for all “wrinkles”. Facials are received in hopes of finding the ultimate result; a beautiful; glowing skin that simply seems “ageless”. Facials are the more relaxing and desired approach to the “Fountain of Youth” that simply leaves one smiling feeling refreshed; cleansed; perfected in that “ageless” manner that excites one’s inner youth to become viable and present once again. To experience the benefits; pros and cons of a Facial the best thing to do is Book yours as soon as you get a moment. The ending result maybe you’re most exhilarating one...

What does a woman want?

Posted by on Jan 11, 2017 in Spa Talk | 0 comments

What does a woman truly want? What extremes does she go through to achieve it? This is not only a very confusing subject to a man but a very specific analytical one. To women our complex wants are as simple as it gets. Our wants are our needs and our needs are our wants. It may be very hard to understand this so allow me to try to put it into laymen’s terms for the “laying around wondering men” out there. You see a woman is like a vibrant flower that blooms when it is time to bloom. She will wilt as a flower but not die for she will lay dormant until it’s time to bloom again. When a woman is in bloom she is at her best. She smells beautiful; she is breath taking and happy; turning her surroundings into a scenery that will not allow you to close your eyes. At this moment is when she is appreciated and she knows it. She knows she is in existence and she is admired. The thing it is about being a woman is what it takes for her to be in bloom. What stages she must go through to get there. How long that flower lays dormant working; growing; and doing what it must do before it is in bloom. The flower automatically knows when in bloom it is no doubt anything less than perfection. A woman wants to feel the same way; and to feel this way there are things she needs to do. When she spends her day at the local spa; it’s not because she is selfish; it’s because she needs to be there and do what she must do to feel perfection. When she comes home from the spa with her relaxed improvements she wants you to notice the improvements and needs you to tell her what they are so she can bloom into her very own inner perfection. If you can understand this and implement it then you will never have to wonder what she wants again and she will always bloom and feel the admiration and adore how you think she is absolute perfection....
