Blog reader you know that I’m a dancer, and on top of being a dancer I also made the mistake of painting my new place in my bare feet. Ultimately I gave up on trying to keep them pretty, so I removed my paint stained nail polish, and I just never got around to repainting them. I felt awful because they were a mess. I actually felt embarrassed, and I almost gave myself a pre-pedicure before going, but alas I was just too busy to make it happen. For my toes I went with a great wine/burgundy color which is a big change from my usual red or pink toes. I loved the shade of burgundy, and honestly I don’t think my toes have EVER looked so good. Thanks so much Patrica you’re a doll. More pics to come!
Many of us wish for better skin (myself included), whether in terms of a more youthful appearance, a smoother surface, or an even skin tone. The Dermasound Facial is a new skincare system that uses low frequency sound waves to provide a deeper level of exfoliation and healing, without the inflammation caused by other methods, and it feels so nice against the skin. It’s definitely not invasive by any stretch, and steps two and three are actually a little warm, so it feels like a massage on your face.
“The Dermasound Facial is a three-step complete facial that uses ultrasound technology:
The first step removes 20% to 50% the outer layer of the skin which we continuously shed. Ultrasonic vibrations spin the water molecules at high frequency. This step gently removes the dead surface skin cells and deep cleans out follicles without the irritation and inflammation that is sometimes associated with mechanical methods.
The second step of the Dermasound facial uses the process of sonophoresis to create pathways through the layers of the skin to dramatically increase the penetration of treatment products. The treatment products used during a Dermasound facial are specific to the results which are sought. That is, the facial can be customized to treat acne, rosacea, fine lines, discoloration and signs of aging.
The third step of the Dermasound treatment uses microcurrent therapy. Our cells have a natural electrical charge that can be damaged by the sun, the environment, and the process of aging. Microcurrent therapy promotes healing and restores the cell’s normal functioning. It increases the transport of nutrients to the cells and removal of waste products. Microcurrent therapy also stimulates the production of collagen, one of the most important support structures of the skin.
Ultrasonic Dermasound Facial is used instead of or in conjunction with Microdermabrasion” Here’s a great video about the treatment’s feature on the show The Doctors.
Needless to say I was overwhelmed with my little spa day transformation; I needed this visit in the worst way. The folks at The Summit Spa really know how to make a girl feel like themselves again no matter what kind of state they stumble in. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again but what I love about The Summit Spa is that they carry a very gentle make up line (Jane Iredale) that can be applied post facial. Honestly there’s nothing worse than having your skin sloffed off to only then have to go back out and face the world. I don’t know about you blog reader, but I rarely go bare faced, so even having a little bit of coverage with some blush really goes a long way.
