3 Little-Known Facts About the Invigorating Green Peel Spa Treatment

[Posted March 16th, 2015 by: Amy’s Skin Care ]

Bookmark and Share

Softer, cleaner, healthier skin is just a spa treatment away with our Green Peel facial. This revolutionary treatment is designed to repair, cleanse and rejuvenate the skin.

While you may know what the treatment does, you might not know all the background on it. The following is a look at three little-known facts about this particular custom spa treatment that you will benefit from knowing.

Green Peel Has Been Around for Over 50 Years

A little over half a century ago, this invigorating spa treatment was created by an individual named Christine Schrammek. Christine’s goal was to create a facial cleansing system that would help women repair their dry, damaged skin. She was successful in her mission, and this spa treatment is the result of her hard work.

It has been over 50 years, and Christine has created multiple products and treatments that are designed to help improve everyone’s skin – not just women’s. There are three different types of herbal facial peels and there are over two dozen take-home products available.

All-Natural Ingredients

Many of our clients are worried about using harsh, chemically based ingredients to repair their skin. If you choose this spa treatment, you will not have to worry about unnatural or invasive ingredients, as everything is 100% natural.

The active ingredients, which are essential to helping you repair and rejuvenate your skin, are all plant-based. And there are several different versions of this spa treatment, all of which use natural ingredients.

Treatment Is Only Offered by Certified Aestheticians

The only individuals who are allowed to offer and/or perform this type of spa treatment are certified aestheticians with the proper training and state-board licensure. This is very similar to the training and licensing requirements related to laser treatment for hair removal.

An aesthetician cannot just perform this type of spa treatment. He or she must attend several training seminars and/or lectures before being qualified to perform this treatment on other individuals. This requirement guarantees that the spa treatment is performed correctly, each and every time.

The Green Peel treatment is available at our luxurious spa, Amy’s Skin Care. We have a number of certified aestheticians who are just waiting to help repair dull, dry, damaged skin by offering this invigorating yet relaxing spa treatment.

5 Benefits To Laser Treatment For Hair Removal

[Posted March 12th, 2015 by: Amy’s Skin Care ]

Bookmark and Share

There are many benefits to laser treatment for hair removal. Knowing about the benefits can help you to decide whether to undergo the procedure or not. When you go to the right location, you can learn about the process and determine whether it is something that will give you the results you desire.

Permanent Hair Removal

It’s possible to experience permanent hair removal with a laser treatment. While you will have to go through between four and eight treatments to kill all of the hair follicles, this could be enough that hair will never grow back in the areas where you are treated. That means you won’t have to deal with stubble after a few days, like with shaving, or even hair growth after a week or so following a waxing treatment. The hair will be gone forever, which can be a great and liberating feeling.

Relatively Painless

Many people don’t realize it, but laser treatment for hair removal is virtually painless. The most amount of pain that people feel is similar to what a rubber band feels like when it is snapped against the skin.

Affordable

Another benefit to laser treatment for hair removal is that it’s affordable. You don’t have to spend a ton of money on the treatments and there are various incentives at Amy’s Skin Care where we focus on making it as affordable as possible for you to undergo the treatments.

Works in Many Areas

You want to look your very best and that may mean getting rid of unwanted hair in various parts of the body. There are many areas for hair removal, including:

–           Underarms

–           Upper lip

–           Legs

–           Bikini area

–           Back

It’s possible to have the laser treatment where you want it. Plus, you can schedule other services at the same time, such as a Green Peel so you can shed layers of dead cells and have the refreshing, rejuvenated skin you desire.

No More Purchasing Shaving Products

There are a lot of shaving products out there, and you have to constantly buy shaving cream and razors, wax strips and others in order to keep up appearances. The cost of these items can add up over time. When you go through laser treatment for laser hair removal, you never have to worry about having to keep an inventory of these products ever again.

6 Benefits To A Non-Surgical Facelift

[Posted March 10th, 2015 by: Amy’s Skin Care ]

Bookmark and Share

A non-surgical facelift can provide you with the look you have been wanting. The facelift is done with injections and even chemical peels to turn back the signs of aging. Since there is no actual surgery, there are many benefits to the procedure.

Reduced Risk of Infection

There is a long list of surgery complications that would be reviewed if you went to a cosmetic surgeon for a facelift. This includes blood loss, clotting, as well as infection. There is no incision being made with this alternative form to a facelift, so there is a dramatic reduction in risk for any kind of infection.

Faster Recovery Time

You will experience a faster recovery time and this is one of the main reasons why people choose to have a non-surgical facelift. Depending upon the product that is injected, results can be seen within hours of the procedure being completed. There is little to no swelling, so a person can go back to work or regular activities the next day. A typical facelift with surgery could result in six weeks or more of recovery.

Low Amount of Pain

The pain is very low with a non-surgical facelift. Some local anesthesia is used, but it is no more than a pinch that is felt when the needle goes in. There are no incisions and no stitches, so the fear of pain is removed.

No Scarring

While the visibility of scars will depend on the actual surgery as well as the surgeon who is performing it, you don’t have to worry about such a thing with a non-surgical facelift. Injections are made and those heal quickly enough so that no one ever notices a thing.

Improved Results

There can be improved results with a non-surgical facelift because of the various contouring and lifting that can be done. The focus is on where you need the help the most. An aesthetician at Amy’s Skin Care can sit down and discuss options with you during a consultation. There are various other procedures that you can explore while making your appointment, too. A Houston massage can even be scheduled as a way of helping you to relax prior to the facelift.

Long-Lasting Effect

Many of the products used in a non-surgical facelift will provide a long-lasting effect. You can look younger for six months to a year without having to worry about the need for any more fillers.

Does Laser Hair Removal Work For Men? Top 4 Reasons Men Should Consider This Treatment

[Posted March 9th, 2015 by: Amy’s Skin Care ]

Bookmark and Share

One of the questions we hear often at Amy’s Skin Care is, “does laser hair removal work for men?” Men are wondering how such treatments can work for them, if the treatments are more suited for women, and whether it creates a lasting effect for them. If you are wondering whether you should get this treatment, the answer is simple. Yes. Laser hair removal is a perfect treatment for men who are worried about the amount of hair they have. In fact, we have gathered together the 4 reasons why you should get this treatment if you are a man worried about your appearance.

1: More Hair Grows As You Age

As you grow older, you will find more hair growing along your upper arms, chest and back areas. Shaving these areas constantly can be a tedious process, and trying to reach the hair on your back can be difficult unless you have someone else do it for you. Laser treatment for hair removal can thin out the hair in these regions so it is less noticeable. Getting a treatment once a year can keep the hair in check.

2: It Is A Fast Method

A typical session will be about 30 minutes depending on the area that is being treated. While you will have to get several treatment sessions to see results, you can still do other things during the day as you don’t have to rest up like you would after a surgical procedure.

3: It Works Great For People Who Have Dark Hair

People ask, “does laser hair removal work for people with light skin but have dark hairs?” We tell them that it does. Laser hair treatment works well on dark hairs for light-skinned people as the laser targets the hair root and destroys it. This procedure makes it harder for hair to continue to grow there.

4: It Is Suited For Different Body Areas

Laser hair removal treatments can work on the stomach area, shoulders, chest, back and genital areas for men. If you have too much hair in these areas and want a great treatment, come to Amy’s Skin Care. We can answer your questions such as, “does laser hair removal work for men?

What to Expect When Receiving a Green Peel Treatment

[Posted October 15, 2014 by: Amy’s Skin Care ]

Smoother, brighter skin is just a spa treatment away. The Green Peel treatment, offered at our luxurious spa, helps clients of all ages repair, rejuvenate, and revitalize their skin in a way that is safe, pain free, and 100% natural.

Understanding how this spa treatment is administered and what is involved can help individuals decide if this is the right skin treatment for them. The following is a general overview of what to expect during a scheduled appointment to receive this spa treatment.

Work to Create a Customized Mixture

The mixture used for a Green Peel treatment is made up of several different vitamins, enzymes, and minerals. The solution is 100% natural and cause little to no skin irritation.

Our trained staff can create a unique solution for each client. Every client has unique skin care needs and a customized solution allows individuals to have their individual skin conditions addressed and treated.

A unique solution is created by increasing or decreasing the amount of herbal plant products to the mixture. Before the first scheduled treatment, our staff will work with our clients to create a personalized skin treatment regimen that will address a wide variety of concerns ranging from acne scarring to fine lines and wrinkles.

The Actual Treatment

Once our staff has completely evaluated our client's skin care needs and created a customized solution, it is time to receive the actual treatment. The actual treatment for this procedure takes a little under an hour.

The procedure involves massaging the newly created herbal mixture into the skin. The mixture is massaged into the skin using an intense technique that involves using circular motions and is designed to activate the peeling process.

After it has been applied to the skin, a gentle compression cloth is placed over the treatment area. This cloth keeps the mixture moist while it sits on the skin for approximately 20 minutes. One of our staff members will be applying small drops of diluted mixture to the treatment area to help keep the herbal mixture moist.

When 20 minutes has passed, the cloth is removed and the mixture is gently removed from the skin. A toning product is applied to treated area to finish the process.

The Green Peel treatment is successful in removing acne scars, repairing sun damaged skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and tightening and firming the skin. Amy's Skin Care — located in Houston, TX — has a trained and experienced staff that can administer this spa treatment and other non-surgical facelift treatments to clients.
