Don’t Be Scared!
Sexy Halloween costume’s are popular, but they don’t leave much to the imagination.
Our tricks and treats will make you “bootiful” before your Halloween Party.
Trick: Cellulite or belly bump.
Velashape is used to treat cellulite and for circumference reduction. There isn’t any down time so you can go out immediately post treatment. For best results a series of weekly treatments are needed, however even one treatment can offer improvement.
Trick: Scary Hairy
Waxing or Dermaplaneing
Laser hair removal is usually my first suggestion, however for a quick fix waxing or dermaplaning is your best bet. Waxing is quick and can be done almost anywhere on face or body, however waxing is not recommended if you are using isotretinoin or tretinoin.
For facial hair dermaplaning is my favorite option. Dermaplaning involves using a surgical blade to gently scrape the skin, to manually exfoliate dead skin and remove facial hair. Your skin is instantly smooth and your makeup will go on better than you ever imagined. You can go out immediately post treatment and look gorgeous.
Trick: Skin Laxity
ReFirme is a non-invasive Skin Tightening procedure, that is used to achieve a more youthful, toned and lifted appearance without enduring downtime. ReFirme is used to improve skin laxity, targeting those telltale signs of aging, including, jowl and neck laxity, sagginess under the eyes, saggy brow lines, and nasolabial folds. There isn’t any down time with ReFirme treatments, so you can have a treatment the same day as an event. A series of treatments are needed for best results, however even your first treatment offers a visual benefit.
An acne facial can offer some improvement, however keep in mind it is never a good idea to do a lot of extractions before an event. Extractions can be done on pustules and can help reduce inflammation.
Trick : Peeling, flaking skin and beyond.
Microdermabrasion and/ or Dermaplaning
Microdermabrasion is a form of manual exfoliation and is ideal for most skin types. Your treatment is customized to your specific needs. Exfoliation will slough of any flakey or peeling skin, and reduces the appearance of skin discolorations ” slightly”. Pigmentation will still be visible, but we are talking about a last minuet treatment, and you don’t get 100% correction over night. After a Microdermabrasion your skin is left smooth, hydrated and glowing.
Treat: Dead Sea Body Paraffin
This is an incredibly pampering, 90 minute- body wrap treatment. First dead sea salts infused in warm aromatic oil is rubbed over your body, exfoliating and removing dead skin. You are then wrapped in warm wet towels and the salt scrub is gently removed. After the salt glow, oils are massaged into the skin, and then a warm dead sea mud paraffin is painted over your entire body. The body is then wrapped in a cocoon to help seal in moisture. Finally, the the wrap and paraffin is peeled away, leaving your skin silky smooth. This is a salt glow, massage, and body wrap all in one.
Treat: Oxygen Treatment Facial
A uniquely designed system to cleanse, nourish and revitalize every skin cell through its revolutionary use of pure oxygen. It helps to reduce the effects of aging caused by the sun, exposure to pollutants and free radical damage. Vitamin rich oils are first massaged directly into the skin and then infused via pure oxygen into the skin again. This is excellent for dry, dehydrated skin as well as skin that is “hungover” from to much late night partying.
Treat: Lash and Brow Tint
This treatment is excellent for men! Women enjoy it too. Whether the hair is naturally fair or has lightened with age, a quick tint can brighten your appearance. There are many colors that can be used for a natural look.
Paradise Valley Skin Klinic offers a wide variety treatments.
