It’s April! How did we get here so fast? April is Stress Awareness Month. In this issue, you will find easy ways to manage your stress so you can lead a calmer, more beautiful and balanced life.

April also is the precursor to so many upcoming celebrations. Mother’s Day, graduation and prom are all fast approaching. Not to mention April welcomes spring in full force.

We are extra excited this month because we have a new and refreshed newsletter to share with you. You will still find great promotions, but we’ve added some additional features. The goal is to give the medi spa e-zine a purpose and provide you with great value!

See you soon!

Remember, Mother's Day is May 13th


This is the day you get to spoil your mom (or grandma, or sister) the way she deserves it! You should do it throughout the year, but on May 13th you’re semi-obligated. After all, she changed your diapers, potty-trained you (no easy feat), and still loved you through all your teenage years. The true gift of a mother, though, is that she loves you unconditionally.

I guess what we’re trying to say is, YES, mom deserves a medi spa day. Your Mother’s Day promotions are listed below. Oh, and if you want to take advantage of this for yourself? We won’t tell anyone!

 

Purchase a $125 gift card and receive a $25 gift card FREE!

Every single one of us has different types of skin challenges. Whether you are dealing with acne, an excess of oil, red and chapped skin, or even a combination of all of the above, you might not know about a secret weapon. The chemical peel has been offered by medi spas for years and what was formerly thought to be a celeb privilege, is now very much mainstream.


These are the five benefits that can resolve some of your most stubborn skin challenges:

1. Skin and skincare products look and work better. When a tired layer of old, dead skin is banished, it’s surprising what the healing powers of the skin can do! Not only is the skin queued up to begin to produce more collagen and other skin-loving chemicals, but the products that you use actually penetrate and you get to reap the results!


2. Chemical peels have gone custom. When chemical peels first hit the medi spa scene, a huge concern about hyperpigmentation arose. Now, we know that chemical peels can contain different strengths of ingredients to better address dark spots, sloughing, and even localized areas of concern. You can wade into the pool and figure out what combination and potency work best for you.  


3. Introducing an acne treatment. Not only can chemical peels eliminate acne, but the scars resulting from bouts of acne can be softened as well. Unclog pores, extract blackheads, and make damage less visible. Another awesome bonus is that the properties in the chemical peel linger in your pores and so you receive a longer-lasting defense against skin offenders. Laser treatments are not as effective in creating lasting results, so you want to consider your options carefully.



4. Lose those dark undereye circles for good ... maybe. Well, we have to add in the disclaimer because everyone and every skin type behaves differently. But we have noticed that even the darkest undereye circles start to brighten up after even one treatment. If one won’t do it, results have been promising for multiple chemical peels.


5. Finally, melasma control! When the sun creates dark spots on your skin, you won’t have to look any further for the resolution than a chemical peel! As mentioned in tip 3, lasers may temporarily diminish the darkness, but a chemical peel wards off recurring spots in a far superior fashion.
 

If you’ve been weighing the benefits of a chemical peel, we hope this article has illuminated your options. And of course, we would love to talk to you about any remaining questions. Or, if you’re ready, give us a call and schedule your chemical peel ASAP.

Maybe we should start this article by noting that mother is right? Your skin’s best preparation begins BEFORE we see damage. Even if you are in your 20s, it is not too early to start learning about the benefits of Botox. A good rule of thumb to follow is when you start to see lines sticking around, it might be time to visit the medi spa to embark on your skin’s preservation.

 

Botox is a bit of a magical potion and works when your face becomes more relaxed, which discourages wrinkle formation (and when used preventatively, even deep wrinkle development)! What is the old saying:? “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” When speaking of Botox, no other statement better describes the results that await you with regular administration.

Although most doctors don’t recommend treatment before the age of 30, some women and men are at the mercy of early-aging genes and want to get a jump on controlling their future appearance. So, an exception might be made for you if you are noting wrinkles at rest.

 

The age at which you begin Botox also varies according to your genetics. Lighter complected people generally start injections in their mid-to-early-40s and darker-toned people may be able to wait longer. That said, it is difficult to cast a general age range over any population. The determining factor in beginning your use of Botox depends on your skin’s condition. Try this small test; if you see crow’s feet tugging at the corners of your eyes and you’re not smiling, it might be time to come in for your first session.
 

Toying with attending a Botox party? Beware the risks that can occur. We recommend that you only receive your treatments in a professional office with trained aestheticians on-hand to ensure any reactions and the dosage can be controlled.

If you’re still not sure, we are always happy to schedule a consultation to discuss your questions further. Our aim is to enhance your natural beauty ... but only if you feel comfortable with your beauty decisions.


We hope to hear from you soon, to discuss this intriguing and effective option to beautify your skin and turn back the hands of time.
