* Body Wraps


At Pro Spa and Salon

Body wraps are all the rage at spas these days -- you might have even seen billboards or TV commercials touting the miraculous slimming benefits of these treatments. Women arrive at the spa in the morning and leave an hour later, suddenly three dress sizes smaller and completely free of cellulite!

The "slimming" wrap treatment is only the tip of the body-wrap iceberg. They're offered to improve arthritis, skin ailments and cellulite. "Detox" wraps claim to draw toxins out of your body, and during a "power wrap," while wrapped in ACE bandages soaked in an electrolyte solution (yes, that is for real).

1 Relaxation

Relaxation is probably the one body-wrap benefit that anyone would be hard-pressed to dispute. Regardless of what might or might not be happening with your skin and cellulite, you're spending quality time alone, listening to calming music in a sweet-smelling, low-lit room. Of course, if you're totally claustrophobic it would definitely not be pleasant to be wrapped up like a mummy and left in a dark room for a half-hour.

2 Skin Detoxification

This one is a little bit controversial. Many theoreticians claim that certain materials, when used in a body wrap (like clay, mud, seaweed and algae) will "pull" toxins out of your body. But while there's no scientific evidence to support the idea of a full-body detox, you could have some luck with skin purification and improvement of acne.

Wraps are designed to improve the texture and appearance of the skin by helping to rid the body of excess fluids and toxins. Benefits of body wraps may include detoxification, boosting of the lymphatic system and metabolism, body contouring, temporary inch-loss, skin tightening, and skin softening

3 Moisturization

No matter what kind of body wrap you get, your skin will end up nice and moisturized. Wrap solutions, regardless of their exact ingredients, are always super-moisturizing -- so wrapping them against your body and adding heat will only intensify those effects. You might not end up 20 pounds lighter, but your skin will be soft as a baby's bottom.

4 Exfoliation

If you select a body wrap treatment that includes a scrub before the wrap, guess what? Your skin is going to be exfoliated -- there's not much doubt about that. Whether the exfoliating agent is sea salt, pumice, sugar or some other natural ingredient, it will scrub away dead cells on the surface of your skin, which will set the stage for the next step in the wrap: moisturization.

5 Quick Cellulite and Weight Fix

Many people who sign up for weight-loss or cellulite-elimination body wraps are trying to improve their appearance for a special occasion, like a wedding or a beach vacation. And they might be the perfect customers for these treatments: The wrap could very well make your skin look tighter or cause you to lose a few pounds of water weight, but you'll go back to your "old self" after the big event. Unfortunately, disappointment awaits those who are looking to get rid of cellulite forever or permanently shed pounds -- there are no shortcuts that'll beat good old diet and exercise. This is an ongoing process, and to produce long lasting results, you may want to set up a regular routine of body wraps. Ask about our Bulk Pricing for multiple Body Wraps.

*Saunas

The Many Benefits of a Sauna are at your fingertips at PRO SPA & SALON & BOUTIQUE

  • better sleep
  • relaxation
  • detoxification
  • weight loss
  • relief from sore muscles
  • relief from joint pain such as arthritis
  • clear and tighter skin
  • improved circulation
  • help for people with chronic fatigue syndrome

Saunas flush toxins. Many - if not most - of us do not actively sweat on a daily basis. Deep sweating, however, has multiple proven health benefits. Benefits derived from a deep sweat can be achieved via regular sauna bathing. Due to the heat of a sauna, the core body temperature begins to rise.

1. Saunas improve cardiovascular performance.

Not surprisingly, sauna bathers most frequently cite stress reduction as the number one benefit of sauna use. Medical studies often determine that stress in our daily lives can negatively affect our health. In fact, the vast majority of disease (i.e. heart disease) is at least partially stress-related. Heat bathing in a sauna provides stress relief in a number of ways. It’s a warm, quiet space without any distractions coming from the outside. As we like to say, "Step into a sauna, and close the door on the rest of the world." The heat from the sauna relaxes the body's muscles, improves circulation and stimulates the release of endorphins. Endorphins are the body’s all-natural "feel good" chemical, and their release provides a truly wonderful "after sauna glow.”

  • Reduced risk of all-cause mortality & fatal cardiac incidents (heart attacks). Using sauna 2-3 times per week at 174 degrees F reduces risk of Fatal Cardiovascular Disease by 27% and 4-7 times per week reduces risk by 50%
  • Reduced risk of hypertension (high blood pressure) with regular sauna use. A 3-month study of bi-weekly sauna use showed reduced occurrence of high blood pressure.
  • Long-term sauna use and aerobic exercise are associated with improved arterial compliance, which means the arteries are healthier and better able to handle additional stresses.
  • Sauna use increases the heart rate similar to aerobic exercise with the heart rate ranging between 120-150 beats per minute.

2. Saunas aid in recovery after intense physical activity. Saunas relax muscles and soothe aches/pains in both muscles and joints.

Under the high heat provided by a sauna, the body releases endorphins (see health and wellness benefit #1). Endorphins can have a mild, enjoyable "tranquilizing effect" and the ability to minimize the pain of arthritis and muscle soreness other from, say, an intense physical workout. Body temperature also rises from the heat of the sauna.. This causes blood vessels to dilate, therefore increasing blood circulation. This increased blood flow in turn speeds up the body’s natural healing process via soothing aches and pains and/or speeding up of the healing of minor bruises or cuts. After participating in physical sports, use the heat and/or steam of a sauna to promote muscle relaxation by helping to reduce muscle tension and eliminate lactic acid and/or other toxins that may be present.

  • Regular sauna use may also benefit strength training through improved recovery & muscle growth through the increased growth hormones.
  • Growth hormone increases by 200-300% after a single sauna use, which helps with reducing muscle atrophy. This relates to University of Iowa study.
  • Three-weeks of post-exercise sauna bathing increased run time to exhaustion by 32% in male distance runners.

3. Saunas Flush Toxins

Many - if not most - of us do not actively sweat on a daily basis. Deep sweating, however, has multiple proven health benefits. Benefits derived from a deep sweat can be achieved via regular sauna bathing.Due to the heat of a sauna, the core body temperature begins to rise. The blood vessels then dilate, causing increased blood flow (see above). As heat from the blood begins to move toward the skin's surface, the body’s nervous system then sends signals to the millions of sweat glands that cover the human body. As the sweat glands become stimulated, they produce sweat. Sweat production is primarily designed to cool the body, and is composed of 99% water. However, deep sweating in a sauna can help reduce levels of lead, copper, zinc, nickel, mercury and chemical - which are all toxins commonly absorbed just from interacting with our daily environments.There is no shortage of books from Doctors and practitioners, who describe the benefits of detoxifying our bodies regularly. As many doctors will agree, a big reason for the popularity of saunas is that they are one of the best ways to detoxify our bodies.

4. Reduces incidences of Alzheimer’s by 65%

A study conducted at the University of Eastern Finland by Dr. Jari Laukkanen and his colleagues revealed regular sauna use (4-7 times per week) at 176 degrees F for 19 minutes lowered the risk for both Alzheimer's & Dementia.

5. Saunas relieve stress.

Sauna use can help the body and mind adapt to stress and reduce the risk of depression and other mental disorders. In addition to the adaption to stress, the improved cardio respiratory fitness contributes to the therapeutic effects of sauna for depression and anxiety.

6. Saunas Can Induce a Deeper Sleep

Research has shown that a deeper, more relaxed sleep can result from sauna use. In addition to the release of endorphins (see above), body temperatures, which become elevated in the late evening,fall at bedtime. This slow, relaxing decline in endorphins is key in facilitating sleep. Numerous sauna bathers worldwide recall the deep sleep experiences that they feel after bathing the the calming heat of a sauna.

7. Saunas Can Help Fight Illness

German sauna medical research shows that saunas were able to significantly reduce the incidences of colds and influenza amongst participants. As the body is exposed to the heat of a sauna and steam (in the case of traditional saunas), it produces white blood cells more rapidly, which in turn helps to fight illnesses and helps to kill viruses. In addition, saunas can relieve the uncomfortable symptoms of sinus congestion from colds or allergies - especially when used with steam (tip: add eucalyptus to the water for added benefit and overall enjoyment). The steam vapor action helps to clear up unwanted congestion and is a wonderful aspect of the Finnish sauna experience.

8. Sauna Cleanses The Skin

Heat bathing is one of the oldest beauty and/or health strategies in terms of cleansing one's skin. When the body begins to produce sweat via deep sweating, the skin is then cleansed and dead skin cells are replaced - keeping your skin in good working condition. Sweating rinses bacteria out of the epidermal layer and sweat ducts. Cleansing of the pores has been shown to improve the capillary circulation, while giving the skin a softer-looking quality.

9. Saunas Burn Calories

Outlandish claims are often made by some sauna sellers (primarily those who sell infrared saunas) to promote saunas as an end-all weight loss tool. While some individuals may experience high amounts of calorie burn at first - particularly those individuals in poor shape to begin with - over the long term, saunas are simply treated as one of many tools in our arsenal when it comes to burn additional calories.The sweating process itself requires a notable amount of energy. That energy is derived from the conversion of fat and carbohydrates in a bodily process that burns up calories. According to U.S. Army medical research (Ward Dean, M.D.), "A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna in a single session, consuming nearly 300 calories in the process.”The body consumes said calories due to the acceleration of heart activity (the cardiovascular section). As heart activity increases and as these processes demand more oxygen, the body begins to convert more calories into usable energy.

10. Saunas Bring Out Recreational and Social Benefits

While the social benefit is rarely talked about, it's actually quite important. The sauna can be a private, personal area of relaxation and solitude. However, it can just as easily be a relaxing environment for socializing with family, friends and soon-to-be friends. The sauna room environment is conducive to open, intimate and quiet conversation.

11. Saunas Just Feel Good

A sauna not only feels good, it’s good for your body. Whether it’s the physiological changes that occur during the warmth of a sauna, or if it’s simply the time spent in the calming and still retreat of the sauna, every seasoned sauna bather agrees - it feels wonderful! As we progress through our stressful everyday lives, the sauna provides a pampering retreat - where we can relax and restore body and soul. Sauna bathing truly makes you "Feel Better”, "Look Better” and "Sleep Better”!

*BODY SCRUB

Put simply, a body scrub is a skin care product whose primary function is to remove dead skin cells through exfoliation as well as cleanse the skin and increase the body's blood circulation. Sometimes a body scrub is referred to as a body exfoliant, body gloss or body polish. The exfoliating component needs to be abrasive enough to achieve this but not too strong so as not to damage healthy skin.

BENEFITS OF A BODY SCRUB

If you're not using a body scrub then you're missing out on a number of benefits that other skin care products don't provide. So just what are the benefits of a body scrub?

Body Scrub Benefit # 1 - Makes Skin Look Fresh And Rejuvenated

Essentially the benefits of using a body scrub are the removal of dead skin cells from the body and impurities, leaving you feeling fresh and your skin looking rejuvenated and revitalized.

Body Scrub Benefits # 2 - Makes Skin Look More Youthful

Exfoliating dead skin cells tends to remove the dull and lacklustre appearance of the skin. Humans shed skin cells daily (anywhere from 11,000-23,000 skin cells an hour) and it usually takes about 27 to 30 days before new skin cells reach the top layer of the skin (stratum corneum). Using a body scrub regularly will help make your skin look more vibrant and youthful.

Body Scrub Benefits # 3 - Moisturizing Benefits

Benefits of body scrubs through the removal of dead skin cells as a result of exfoliation with a mild body scrub extend to moisturizing as it allows for the easy absorption of a skin moisturizer into the healthy skin. Ideally, the best body scrub is one that not only acts as a gentle enfoliant but moisturizes at the same time! All of the Volcanic Earth body scrubs do both.

Body Scrub Benefits # 4: Improved Self Tanning

More and more people are using self tanners rather than increase their risk of skin cancer through exposure to the damaging effects of too much sun. The important thing to know here is that to achieve a realistic "fake" tan using a self tanner is to exfoliate with a gentle body scrub first. If you don't do this to remove any dead skin cells then you run the risk of ending up with a blotchy look as the self tanner will darken areas where more dead skin cells accumulate (such as the elbows and knees). If you want a natural looking tan and you use a self tanner then using a suitable body scrub before applying the tanning product is essential.

*Eyelash Perm

Eyelash permanent wave, or more commonly called an eyelash perm, and may also refer to permanent relaxer that straightens the hair is a cosmetics procedure performed only by licensed Cosmetologists to flip up eyelashes using hair perming technology.

Why would anyone get an eyelash perm?

Call it an optical illusion: Upturned eyelashes look longer than very straight ones. Putting a kink at the lashline of your fringe not only grants you fuller, longer-looking lashes; it helps you fake a wide-eyed doe look, too.

Whether you achieve the effect through the wave of your eyelash curling wand or an eyelash perm, however, comes down to your personal preference for convenience and safety.

How do eyelash perms work?

First, lashes are coated with a special adhesive and wrapped around mini foam rollers or equally diminutive heated clips. This holds them in the curled position that you’re hoping to achieve. As you squeeze your eyes tightly shut, a perming solution or cream is applied to your eyelashes with a tiny brush. The esthetician then covers your roller-wrapped fringe in plastic wrap and lets the chemical concoction cook for about five minutes. After the perming chemicals have taken full effect, on goes a neutralizing solution. More plastic wrap is applied. You sit for another few minutes. Voila: curled lashes in a visit that takes about 45 minutes and costs anywhere from $25 to $70, depending on where you live.

What are the results of an eyelash perm?

The curl in your lashes will last anywhere from four weeks to three months. As your lashes grow and fall out (the life cycle of lashes is about 60 to 120 days), the effects become less noticeable.

*Facial

A basic facial is a skin treatment that cleanses pores, exfoliates away dead skin cells, and treats common skin concerns with a custom mask. This multi-step process is meant to rejuvenate and nourish faces, making skin appear healthier and younger. It is also a popular spa treatment to pamper and relax, right up there with a massage.

What are the benefits of a facial?

Basic facials deeply cleanse skin and may help fight certain skin problems, such as mild acne or dryness. The treatments leave faces glowing and are typically very relaxing, as they include a massage component.

Ask us about our many different types of facials that are designed for different needs and conditions.

*Massage Therapy

This form of therapy involves hands-on techniques to increase circulation, relieve tension, reduce stress, relieve anxiety, improve sleep, and promote relaxation throughout the entire body, as well as many other benefits. The body's soft tissue areas include themuscles, tendons, connective tissue, etc.

7 Benefits Of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a treatment approach which is growing in demand and popularity. It was once considered an alternative or fringe approach, but it is now becoming much more mainstream. More importantly, now that massage therapy is considered a mainstream treatment option, many insurance companies provide coverage for treatment sessions. This form of therapy involves hands-on techniques to increase circulation, relieve tension, reduce stress, relieve anxiety, improve sleep, and promote relaxation throughout the entire body, as well as many other benefits. The body’s soft tissue areas include the muscles, tendons, connective tissue, etc. If someone is tense and in need of a release, or they have been injured and have extensive muscle and/or nerve tissue damage that plagues their body, massage therapy might be worth exploring. Here are some benefits of massage therapy.

1. It Is Relaxing – When the body is tense and under stress, it produces unhealthy levels of the well-known stress hormone, cortisol, which can contribute to weight gain, sleeplessness, digestive problems, and headaches. Massage therapy has been shown to decrease cortisol levels in the body. This enables the body to enter a recovery mode. Moreover, this form of therapy also triggers lasting feelings of relaxation, improved mood, and reduced stress levels.

2. It Reduces Stress – Not only can massage therapy help with stress relief, but regular massage sessions over a prolonged period of time can boost energy levels, reduce pain, and stimulate individuals on physical as well as emotional levels.

3. It Can Help Lower Blood Pressure – Regular massage therapy sessions have been found to reduce blood pressure levels. In fact, some long-term studies have shown that a consistent massage program can reduce both systolic (upper number) and diastolic (lower number) blood pressure. Moreover, it can also reduce cortisol levels within the body. Furthermore, consistent massage sessions can also reduce trigger sources for anxiety, hostility, tension, and depression. In turn, lower blood pressure levels can also reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and/or kidney failure, as well as many other health issues.

4. It Promotes Muscle Relaxation – The purpose of massage therapy is to target the source of the body’s pain via eliminating tense muscles, increasing flexibility, and providing relaxation to the affected muscles as well as the body as a whole. Massage also promotes circulation to the affected or injured muscles, which increases nutrients and oxygen to the damaged tissues. In turn, this increased activity to the affected sites reduces stiffness and edema (swelling) in the muscles and joints, as well as increases flexibility to help reduce pain. Moreover, this form of therapy also releases endorphins (pain-killing hormones), which boost the dopamine and serotonin levels in the body. These hormones assist the body in many ways–physically as well as emotionally. Case in point, they promote healing, pain management, and feelings of euphoria, as well as help to calm the nerves.

5. It Can Help Improve Circulation – The long-term benefits of massage therapy are not to be underestimated. Improved circulation is part of a snowball effect that occurs in the body as a result of receiving regular massage therapy on a consistent basis. This is because proper circulation brings damaged, stiff, and tense muscles the rich blood supply they need to promote healing.

Moreover, massage also promotes improved circulation via the use of hands-on pressure, which moves the blood through the damaged and congested areas of the body. In turn, the release of this same pressure causes new blood to flow into tissues. Furthermore, the squeezing, twisting, and pulling action of the massage technique also removes lactic acid from the muscle tissues. As a result, this action improves the lymph fluid circulation, which carries metabolic waste products away from internal organs and muscles. In turn, this results in lower blood pressure levels and improved overall body function.

6. It Can Help Improve Posture – Many Americans experience back, neck, and muscle pain from a variety of sources. However, the primary cause of this pain results from poor posture. In fact, chronic back pain, which is the number one reason for missed work days and second most common cause of disability, is often the result of incorrect or poor posture while standing and/or sitting. Moreover, being overweight, poor posture, and repetitive or overuse movements can also contribute to the strain on the back and other potential problem areas. As a result, the added strain often causes spasms, pain, and tense muscles in the hips, glutes, back, neck, and legs.

Massage therapy can help get the body back into proper alignment. In fact, improving one’s posture can be one of the most beneficial and relaxing aspects of massage therapy. Massage allows the body to relax and loosen the muscles made tense and sore via bad posture. In turn, this allows the body to position itself in its organic and pain-free posture. As part of a consistent massage therapy program, the body’s muscles are loosened and relaxed. Moreover, the joints have greater freedom, flexibility, range of motion, and pressure points are relieved. As a result, the body is able to position itself in an organic and healthy posture. In short, massage therapy helps to correct the positions and movements developed over time as a reaction to pain.

7. It Can Help Strengthen the Body’s Immune System – Regular massage sessions provide many benefits to the human body. It is a well-known fact that individuals who experience high levels of stress are more vulnerable to illness and injury. When stress is combined with sleep disturbances and poor nutrition, the impact is directed at the body’s immune system. Its ability to naturally protect itself against infections, pathogens, and bacteria is greatly reduced. Some might wonder how massage therapy benefits the immune system. Studies have indicated that regular massage sessions not only help reduce stress, but can also boost the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity (activity level of the body’s natural “killer cells”) and enhances the body’s ability to deliver nourishment. Moreover, massage therapy can be a great addition to any exercise program. Much like regular exercise can keep the body fine-tuned, regular massage therapy can help keep the immune system strong and resilient.

Once considered an alternative or fringe approach, massage therapy is now much more mainstream and growing in popularity. More importantly, now that massage therapy is considered a mainstream treatment option, many insurance companies provide coverage for treatment sessions. This form of therapy involves hands-on techniques to increase circulation, relieve tension, reduce stress, relieve anxiety, improve sleep, and promote relaxation throughout the entire body, as well as many other benefits.

*Balayage?

Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour - similar to what nature gives us as children - with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks.

How is it applied?

Balayage is applied on the surface and not saturated through the section until the very tips, otherwise you would have a streak of colour that isn't very soft at all. It can also be called a freehand technique because no foil or meche are used to create the highlights.

What sets it apart from traditional hair colouring?

It's totally bespoke to you! A good balayage expert will be able to place the colour to suit your skin tone, so it'll look amazing and really light up your features. But don't get it confused with layage - a similar but more precise technique.

What's making it so popular recently?

It's a skilled technique that hasn't been widely taught in the UK until recently. Now it's becoming better known because all the models and A-listers are wearing it. Clients are seeing it on the catwalks and red carpets and want to get that finish rather than the uniform highlights that foils give.

Does it require a lot of maintenance?

Very little. It grows out beautifully and more naturally so you don't get an obvious regrowth line and and can wear it for longer between appointments. All you really need to do is protect it as you would any other colour: use a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner, regular treatments and heat protection when styling.

Is it suitable for all hair types/lengths?

It works on both light and dark hair, so anyone really. Both Rihanna and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are great examples of balayage poster girls. I'm currently doing a technique called 'bronde' popular amongst celebs such as Jessica Alba and Olivia Palermo. It's the perfect combination of brown and blonde tones. Bronde is perfect for darker haired clients who want to try out a lighter colour, it can be warm neutral or cool. The choice is really between you and your colourist. Balayage pretty much works for all lengths except very short cropped hair.

What makes it timeless?

It's low maintenance, looks more bespoke, more natural, and is a modern technique that's much more flattering. Healthy hair is attractive hair and that'll never go out of fashion. Balayage gives a gorgeous healthy finish that looks nature-enhanced, glossy and expensive. It can be natural or strong, whatever you want, it's all about the application technique.

*Plantar Fasciitis Treatment?

Do you suffer from heel pain?

Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. It is caused by repeated strain on the plantar

fascia, the ligament that connects the heel bone to the toes, supporting the arch of the foot. A strained

plantar fascia causes weakness, swelling, and inflammation, especially in one or both heels.

Causes of plantar fasciitis include rolling the feet inward while walking; having high arches or flat feet;

and running, walking, or standing for long periods of time. Symptoms include pain upon waking and pain

while walking and climbing stairs. Pro Spa and Salon has had tremendous success in treating this.

Treatment

We recommend 3 treatments in one week. The treatments are $30 each. Try to imagine what it would be like to get rid of that pain.

We also offer a combo package - 1 Treatment and 1 Foot Detox $50.00.

Call today to start the process of getting rid of that foot pain and getting on with your life

*What is Fascia

Fascia is the head to toe, arm to arm, inside-out connective tissue. It divides our muscles and penetrates them like the internal skin of an orange. It also surrounds virtually every structure of the human body. If we were able to peek inside our bodies and only see the fascia, we would look like a human form of cotton candy with mummy-like bandages running throughout. The entire fascia system is connected in ONE piece like a 3D spider-web. It's so obvious, how did we miss this?

There are 4 types of fascia:

***Structural fascia- Runs in long strips through the body. Visible in chicken meat just below the skin. The white silky membrane.

***Inter-structural fascia- Is present inside muscles and connects muscles to other muscles and to the bones. Visible when eating steak, the cobweb-like material.

***Visceral fascia- The "goop" inside our abdominal cavity that surrounds our organs and digestive system.

***Spinal fascia- the straw like thick casing that surrounds the spinal column

The fascia has a brush point with literally every other system of the body. It is as, or more significant than any other system. Having loose, healthy fascia is vital for overall health and well-being. Healthy fascia also makes us look, feel, and function better!

*Microblading

At PRO SPA AND SALON, we are all about looking our best, even at night when we take all our make up off. Are you looking at yourself in the mirror after washing your face and not liking what you see? We have the answer. I had it done last week. Now I loveeeee my face WITH & WITHOUT makeup. You can too!!!

It's called MICROBLADING?

Microblading, also known as Microstroking, is an advanced brow embroidery technique whereby a superfine row of needles is used to create thin, hair like marks on the skin, which last up to 18 months depending on your skin type and skincare routine. Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine. Microblading procedure is less painful than traditional eyebrow tattoo. ... You will not distinguish the difference between your real hair and hair from microblading. A machine is not used for the procedure which makes microblading more comfortable. The pigment used in the microblading technique is thicker.

AFTERCARE IS ESSENTIAL

Aftercare means protecting freshly bladed brows from all moisture–no sweaty workouts, swimming, or washing your face with water for a whole week. If you get them wet, the scab comes off too early and you just lose the pigment.

Some patients experience itching and redness during the first week, which Vaseline can alleviate. Brows will look slightly darker at first, but the color will fade 30 to 40 percent. Aftercare ointments are provided during your first appointment. Overall they look great right away and you don't have to hide. Slight redness and mild swelling is normal.

Call today to book your Microblading Session and change the way you see yourself at night after all your makeup is washed off.

*Brazilian Blow Out?

Brazilian Blow Out hair straightening treatments are a method of temporarily straightening hair by sealing a liquid keratin and a preservative solution into the hair with a hair iron.

Q. Who is the best candidate for the Brazilian Blowout?

A. It has been our experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.

Q. What kind of look will you get from the Brazilian Blowout?

A. The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.

Q. Can I still receive a Brazilian Blowout if I have highlights and/or color?

A. Yes, the Brazilian Blowout will actually improve the health of color-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine.

Q. Is the Brazilian Blowout going to make my hair straight?

A. If your hair is wavy, the Brazilian Blowout will make your hair appear naturally straight and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimize frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine.

Q. How long does the Brazilian Blowout last?

A. The Brazilian Blowout will last for 10-12 weeks. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last.

Q. Can you apply the Brazilian Blowout directly on top of other relaxers and strengtheners?

A. Yes. The Brazilian Blowout actually works best on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the hairs condition by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids.

The Brazilian Blowout works great directly on top of a relaxer. Perform the relaxer first, Brazilian Blowout next, and then neutralize at the very end of both treatments.

The Brazilian Blowout is great to perform when someone is trying to move away from having relaxers or Japanese straighteners. It puts movement back into the hair, allowing the hair to look its best.

Q. Will my hair lose volume if I receive the Brazilian Blowout?

A. No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout. Your hair will maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron.

Q. Can you color your hair the same day you receive a Brazilian Blowout?

A. Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment. If you get a Brazilian Blowout and wish to get a color service at a later date, you will need to wait 2 weeks.

Cavitation Body Sculpting

Ultrasonic Cavitation Treatments

Ultrasound- Cavitation Body Shaping is an aesthetic treatment, using leading edge ultrasonic- cavitation technology. It disrupts the membrane around fat cells allowing the fatty substance inside to be naturally drained by the body's own filtration system.

The treatment can be followed by a lymphatic drainage with Pressotherapy which is very effective at eliminating liquids.

How it works?

The ultrasound-cavitation creates bubbles in the liquid that surround the fat cells, which gradually grow and implode. As the membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of ultrasonic cavitation easily breaks them, while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue.

What happens to the released fat?

After disruption and emulsification of the fat cells, liquid which makes up the fat cells, in the form of triglycerides, is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells. This fluid is then metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as the energy source. Whereas the insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed as fatty acids from food.

What is the treatment like?

The cavitation treatment does not require any special pre-treatment. It starts with circumference measurement of the target body area and continues with use of ultrasonic pads or some times applicator over the treatment site.

The duration of treatment session normally takes around 20 - 40 minutes, depending on the size of the area and the thickness of the fat layer.

ls Ultrasonic Body Shaping a Safe treatment?

Yes. the therapist will complete a medical questionnaire with you to make sure it is safe for you to undergo this kind of treatment. It is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia. It is non-invasive (no cutting. leaves no scars or need postoperative course) and it allows for a full social life both before and after the sessions.

ls Ultrasonic Cavitation Painful?

No. Cavitation is a completely painless treatment.

Can these treatments be performed on male and females?

Yes, of course.

Which are the areas where treatment is more effective?

All those areas with localized fat and cellulite: thighs, abdomen. buttocks, hip flanks. arms and legs.

Is it possible to lose weight with Ultrasonic Cavitation?

Ultrasonic cavitation is NOT a method to lose weight but rather to shape the body. The treatment is used to reduce stubborn fatty pockets that just won’t go away with diet and exercise and to improve the appearance of cellulites.

Must you follow any guidelines before or after undergoing Ultrasonic Cavitation?

We recommend a low calorie diet and to drink at least 10-1 .5 liters of water before and after the session. After the session we recommend to do a small amount of cardio (brisk walk/jog). Drinking water and half an hour of cardio is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat.

What are the side effects of Ultrasound Fat Cavitation?

You can go about your normal activities right away. You may continue to experience a residual buzzing or ringing sound in your ears for up to 24 hours. Skin trauma is rare. However the area treated may retain warmth for a few hours afterwards. It is not uncommon for stool movements to be oily in the days that follow, or for urine to have an unusual smell as excess waste leaves the body. It is absolutely vital to keep water intake high during the days following treatment to help flush your system.

What might prevent me having an Ultrasound Fat Cavitation treatment?

Cancer: Cancer cells travel via the lymphatic system, as does waste produced by Ultrasound Cavitation. A treatment presents an unacceptable risk of helping to move cancer cells.

Cold or flu symptoms or fever: Ultrasound Cavitation releases toxins from the body via the lymphatic system, and treatments can exacerbate flu symptoms which also leave the body the same way.

Swollen lymph nodes: Treatments cannot be performed in areas where lymph nodes are swollen, infected, or not draining properly.

Oedema: Oedema or localized swelling of limbs indicates poor lymphatic flow. Treatments are not designed to alleviate oedema and may in fact exacerbate the condition.

Active Infections & immunosuppression: These factors compromise the healing ability of the body, and Ultrasound Cavitation should not be attempted until the infection or deficiency is cleared.

Liver. Kidney, or Heart Disease: Compromises the ability of the body to recover from treatments.

Severe hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes mellitus, or poor circulation of blood and lymph.

Pregnancy: Sound waves generated by the treatment will very likely harm an unborn child's hearing and may also result in compromising its Immune system.

Breastfeeding: As mother's milk draws nutrients from the body. There is an unacceptable degree of risk that toxins may pass into the milk and therefore be ingested by a nursing child.

Lymph nodes and joints cannot be treated with cavitation.

The face and neck cannot be treated with cavitation however RF can be.

Menstruation: During a period, the abdomen cannot be treated however other areas can be.

Metallic Implants: People who have metal implanted anywhere in their bodies, such as bone pins or pacemakers cannot receive a treatment.

Skin allergies or inflammation: Areas with obvious signs of inflammation cannot be treated.

Minors: Due to the changing hormonal and fat deposits in the growing body during puberty, we do not treat clients under 18 years of age with Ultrasound Cavitation or Radio Frequency.

What after-care will optimize my results from an Ultrasound Fat Cavitation treatment?

Essentially, Ultrasound Fat Cavitation is designed to destabilize and break down fat into carbohydrates and waste material. If not followed by exercise and plenty of water, the destabilized fat will reform and resettle. Think of the process in simple terms. Fat and sound waves. If you put a tub of butter in the microwave and heat it, the butter destabilizes into liquid. If you leave it to sit however, it solidifies again. The same applies to this treatment, and that’s why cardiovascular exercise and water are vital. Cardio afterwards serves two purposes; to burn off the released carbohydrates. and to encourage the contraction and expansion of lymphatic vessels to channel out waste. Meanwhile, the water acts to thin that waste and to hasten its removal from the body through the urine.

Recommendations prior to starting your first session and during treatment process

  • Prior to starting your first session and during each 3-day period of treatment, we recommend you drink

2-3 liters of water. Water and hydration is key to this process being effective.

  • To maximize the effectiveness of your sessions, it is best to restrict products that impact lymphatic

flow during the program. [caffeine alcohol and sugar in large amounts]

  • We recommend eating a healthy diet to stabilize the fat and inches loss you obtain during the program.

If you want expert guidance on healthy eating and detoxing, we recommend you contact your Doctor.

  • Always consult with your Physician before beginning any new Diet Program.
  • Always inform us if you have a change in health status or experience any unusual symptoms during

your program.

  • Plan to spend 10 minutes after your session on our in-office whole body vibration machine (If available); this will maximize lymphatic drainage to more quickly flush out cellular waste produced during the session.
  • We recommend additional daily exercise to stimulate lymphatic flow. This includes low impact

workouts, brisk walking, swimming or cycling during this process. Adding this activity to your ongoing

lifestyle will help to stabilize your weight and fat loss.

  • You can have Ultrasonic Cavitation during your Menstrual Cycle but it is recommended to avoid the

abdomen as you may not see the immediate results, due to bloating.

  • We concentrate on treatment of one body area during each session. "Time on Target" will achieve

maximum results. Treatments can be done a minimum of 72 hours apart.

  • Tell us if your digestive process is affected in any way during a session. [constipation/ diarrhea]
  • If you should become pregnant during this process please inform us immediately.

Benefits of Spray Tanning

Benefits of a spray tan. Boost your self-confidence, feel fantastic, look radiant and be the envy of your friends. Maintain a healthy, natural, golden glow anywhere and anytime. Even out skin imperfections, minimize the appearance of stretch marks & varicose veins.

Spray tanning gets a bad rep. Many people associate it with orange-hued skin and streaks. However, spray tanning has come a long way since it first became mainstream. At Tommy’s Tanning, we carry the very best spray tanning equipment so you can get a tan that looks just as good as the real thing. But there are a lot more benefits to spray tanning besides just being tan. Here are some of the often-unmentioned benefits of spray tanning:

*Spray Tanning Moisturizes Your Skin

Spray tanning is incredible for your skin, especially when completed at our tanning salons. The reason is because the formula we use contains unique blends of organic ingredients that deeply moisturize your skin. Some of the ingredients used, depending on the treatment you select, include: green marine algae, grape seed extract, ginger root extract, green tea extract, and more. So in addition to receiving a subtle glow, you will experience supple, soft skin that keeps you looking young.

*Gives You Confidence

If you think you look good, then your entire demeanor changes. You walk a little bit taller and smile a little bit more. So it stands to reason that if you believe being tan makes you look better, then it will also make you more confident in your day-to-day life. This means that spray tanning benefits can extend into your job performance, your relationships, and more. And since our spray tan equipment is the most advanced available, you never have to worry about streaks getting in the way.

*Can Slim Down Your Appearance

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, that is true; however, if you want to look slimmer, then this spray tanning benefit is for you. The theory is that the darker the skin, the slimmer it looks. Just like when you wear black slacks or a black blouse. Even Glamour Magazine agrees that a spray tan can make you appear more slim.

*Is Easy and Instant

The final benefit of spray tanning is that the results are effortless and fast. If you have a big event coming up, you are going on vacation, or you just want to boost your color for a night out, you can reap the rewards without a wait. We even offer an instant bronzer treatment, so you won’t even have to wait the few hours it takes for the full effect to show through.

Spray tanning benefits go beyond just darkening your skin: they can help your self confidence, appearance, and your skin health. What’s not to love about that? To test these spray tanning benefits for yourself, stop by one of our 14 locations in Connecticut today.

Botox Benefits

5 Amazing Benefits of Botox® Injections Your Patients Need To Know!

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the #1 most common cosmetic complaint patients have is wrinkles. Approved for wrinkle treatment in 2002 and more recently for crow’s feet by the FDA, nothing smooths out wrinkles quicker than Botox Cosmetic®. Your aesthetic patients already know this. Your medical patients, on the other hand, may be skeptical if it is suggested as a treatment for their condition. Here are 5 of the most popular cosmetic and medical benefits of Botox® injections. Use this as a quick and easy way to explain these procedures to your patients.

First, Explain How Botox® Works

The best way to explain Botox® to your patients is this: “Botox® works as a shield between the brain and the muscle so that, even if your brain is telling a muscle to move–whether this is on purpose or because of misfiring neurons–the muscle will stay still.”

Next, outline some of the ways that relaxing muscles can help in both cosmetic and medical patients. Here are some good examples to use.

Botox Benefit #1: Treat a Drooping Brow

Also called “Brow Ptosis,” drooping brow can cause patients to look unhappy and tired even when they are feeling awake and happy. In some instances there are biological reasons for the droop and you might advise your patients to eat more vegetables, exercise their facial muscles, etc. Many times, however, intervention is needed. Administering Botox® results in the relaxing of the brow muscles and, when administered correctly, can keep them aloft.

Botox Benefit #2: Stop Excessive Sweating

“Hyperhidrosis” is defined by the National Library of Medicine as “a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest.” Your patients probably won’t care about this. They’ll likely just want to stop sweating so much.

Explain that, just like Botox® can prevent directions given by the brain from reaching the intended muscle, it can also act as a shield for sweat glands. It is particularly helpful for excessive localized sweating in the patient’s armpits, feet or hands. Make sure to tell them that they’ll need to repeat the procedure every few months but the smart money says they’ll choose the treatment over the skin conditions they risk developing from having to walk around in damp clothing and shoes all day.

Botox Benefit #3: Reduce Migraine Pain

Many of your practice’s migraine patients will have probably read up on the use of Botox® as a treatment for their condition. This means that you won’t have to do much convincing with them, but you will have to manage expectations. Many migraine sufferers make the mistake of thinking that the drug stops the migraine itself. It doesn’t. It will, however, reduce many of their major symptoms like sensitivity to light and nausea, making the migraine easier to deal with.

Botox Benefit #4: Treatment for Bells Palsy

You have two choices for administering Botox® to your Bells Palsy patients. Here is how you can explain each of those choices to your patients:

Administering the treatment to the paralyzed side of the patient’s face–this can help relax facial muscles that might have tightened up and become painful as well as preventing unwanted facial tics.

Administering the treatment to the non-paralyzed side of the patient’s face–this Botox® benefit is more cosmetic in nature. This technique can help relax the movements on the dominant side of the face. This helps give the face a more balanced look even when the patient is talking or moving their face a lot.

Botox Benefit #5: Stop Eye Twitch/Squinting

If your patient is willing to come into your practice over an eye twitch, it’s safe to think that the twitch is more than a temporary annoyance. Sometimes the twitching will be rapid and/or constant. Other times the twitch can cause a permanent spasm of the muscle, holding it in a tense position for a prolonged period of time. In addition to being annoying and sometimes painful, these twitches can also interfere with the patient’s vision.

Filler Benefits

Dermal fillers are generally used for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and for adding volume and fullness to skin beginning to suffer from volume loss. Dermal fillers such as Voluma can also be used for cheek and chin augmentation, and Radiesse has been used with success to nonsurgically reshape the nose.

Dermal fillers are growing in popularity because they are a quick way to reduce the common signs of aging across your visage. Whether you are dealing with sunken areas, fine lines and wrinkles, thin lips or folds, there is a dermal filler to treat it. You are able to return to your daily activities immediately after treatment with a revitalized appearance.

The very first reason why people love dermal fillers is because they do not have to wait in order to enjoy the benefits of the treatment. As soon as the product is injected into the skin, they are going to see their appearance transform.

Most dermal fillers are based on substances that benefit the skin. So, the second miraculous benefit of dermal fillers is that they continue to produce fantastic results after treatment. Most dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid or collagen. These are two substances that you have in your skin already and that cause your skin to look youthful and healthy. When these are added to your skin by means of a dermal filler, they cause your skin to look hydrated and plump.

A third miraculous benefit of dermal fillers is that you get long-lasting results. In most cases, you will be able to enjoy a more youthful look for at least half a year. This means that you do not have to return to our clinic often in order to maintain an attractive appearance.

The fourth benefit that you are going to receive from dermal fillers is that the results are usually subtle. This is what most people want. They do not want to look like one person before the treatment and like a completely different person after. They just want to be a better version of themselves. Most people will not even know exactly what you had done. They just know that you look better.

One of the main benefits that people receive is a boost in self-confidence after using dermal fillers. They love the way they feel. Our goal is to help you achieve your aesthetic goals and to love your appearance.

To learn more information, contact Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery in Bethesda. We also happily serve clients in Washington, DC and the surrounding areas. Our medical team would be happy to help you see what dermal filler would be right for your aesthetic goals. Contact us today to make an appointment!
