Great Skin, Great Party

Last night we did a little partying with the Aestheticare Medi-Spa group as they celebrated their 6th Anniversary with their annual open house. These folks know how to throw a good party! Catered by Dean & Deluca, music by our good friend Drew and loads of great demo’s.

I watched a demo of the IPL Photo Rejuvenation. Very cool. I’m almost getting brave enough to start trying some of this stuff (I have a very low pain threshold). The gal having the procedure done only flinched a tiny bit each time the light flashed. Her skin was barely pink when it was finished. She had already done 3 procedures, this was her fourth. Her skin definitely had a more even skin tone and few sun spots that so many people have this time of year.

I saw my favorite aesthetician, Claudia, who just started at Aestheticare just a few months ago. She’s thrilled to be on board with them and I was thrilled to see a familiar face. Even if she used to make my cry when I had my legs waxed. Note: probably not a great idea to try waxing while your pregnant if you get sensitive skin. Ouch! Again..I’ve got a low pain threshold. I could have used the epidural for the waxing.

So I’m really considering having laser hair removal on my legs. It can’t hurt worse than waxing, surely. And once you’ve done a few treatments, you don’t have to keep going back every six weeks to start all over. Think of the savings on no more treatments and no more painful waxing! Plus no more razor cuts because I’m rushing to shave all the time.

Yep, I’m nearly convinced that my birthday present this year should be some laser treatments. Hmmm…now if I can just move that November birthday to July so I can get started.

You know when your kids say “Mom, why are your legs always scratchy?” that you need to make some improvements. 😉
