I missed doing an October newsletter. Hopefully November's will be "newsy" enough to make up for that! We had a great turnout at the Head To Toes Party at Solemates on October 18th. I enjoyed meeting all the new people and seeing all our regulars in such a fun setting. Hope everyone is enjoying their Botox and facial peels. I know you are enjoying the shoes, jewelry and Arbonne, because I am!
Our next event is Dazzle Daze in Conway. It is Nov 17th, 18th and 19th at the Conway Expo Center. Thursday is Girls Nite out from 6-9pm. On Friday hours are 10am-8pm and then Saturday 10am-4pm. There are over 90 merchants. You can shop, eat and enjoy some music, and sample some food. Sei Bella Med Spa will be debuting the new Xeomin. It is THE new botulinum toxin! There are some advantages to Xeomin and I'll tell you about those in a minute. The Xeomin will be $10/unit at Dazzle Days. We will also have our Gloss and VIPeel medical grade facial peels those three days for $150. They are normally $300. Also, we will have packets of info on our products and services that include discounts and coupons for you to use in the future. We will have our product lines there including Obagi, Young Pharmaceuticals, and Bionet Esthetics. If you are having a particular skin problem, come see us; I'm sure we have something to help. Also I'm making gift baskets to include gift certificates, wellness items, facial products, chocolates and lots of other goodies. Do some Christmas shopping- big or small! You can get advance tickets or tickets at the door. For a list of merchants, advance tickets or to learn more about Dazzle Daze go to www.conwayregional.org/dazzledaze .
Now a little more about Xeomin.....First there was Botox, then Dysport, now Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) which is manufactured by Merz. It works like the other two by freezing the muscles in the upper face that cause wrinkles. However, there are no additives in Xeomin just botulinum toxin A. This will lessen a person's chance of forming antibodies. When you form antibodies to botulinum toxin A you don't get the desired result which is the disappearance of those aggravating frownlines, forehead lines and crow's feet. Maximum results with Xeomin may take up to a week to fully develop just like with Botox or Dysport. Xeomin's effects last three to six months. Xeomin has been approved in Europe since 2005. In some studies it has been shown to last six months, but frankly, I can't promise that. Time will tell as we use it more extensively at Sei Bella. I have $50 Visa gift cards that can be used for any future service at Sei Bella when you purchase Xeomin. They are limited in number, though, so I can't guarantee I'll have any left by Dazzle Daze, but if I do, I will bring them with me.
On Thursday, Nov 3rd we are doing a Groupon for DermaFrac. You will have three package options you can purchase. DermaFrac is extremely popular in Europe. Sei Bella has the first machine in Arkansas. This procedure painlessly lays peptides between the dermis and epidermis layer of the skin. The handpiece makes microchannels in the skin and you can choose to have either anti-aging, lightening, anti-acne or hydration peptides. Enjoy a softly lit room and some relaxing music while you have your treatments. If you're not a member of Groupon yet, go to http://www.groupon.com/ to sign up. It's free and then check the website this Thurs. I have the deal of the day texted to me each day. (Somebody in my family needs to benefit from unlimited texting besides my kids!)
I got a postcard in the mail about a product called DermaFlage. I looked at the website, http://www.dermaflage.com/ to learn more about it. Apparently it was developed by a Hollywood makeup artist and a plastic surgeon. Dermaflage is for indented scars. The results were impressive. I don't sell Dermaflage, but the company is supposed to be sending me some samples. I think Amazon had the best price for it, but go to the website and watch the video if you're interested. Sei Bella carries Scar Gel which is for raised scars. If any of you try DermFlage, please drop me an email and let me know what you think.
We have several new products at Sei Bella. I have Bionet's glycolic or lactic acid cell turnover serum, a new cellulite cream, an alpha hydroxy acid facial wash, and the new Dermateen set for teenager's acne. Dermateen works well and is cheaper than the Obagi. It's good maintenance for teens as well. If acne is more significant, I think the Obagi line is better. Plus I can prescribe metrogel as an add on.
The newest product we have at Sei Bella that I love is soap. Yes... the stuff you wash your body with (and hope that your coworkers and family members use as well!) This is an all natural herbal soap made by a really nice lady in Brownsville, TN. It contains all natural oils of coconut, palm, olive and canola plus pure fragance oils and dried herbs. It is all I have used for the last two years in the tub or shower and I carry it with me when I travel. She has some wonderful scents...sandalwood, vanilla sandalwood, lavendar and oatmeal, rosemary mint and lavendar, Hotel Costes, and doublemint with poppyseed. Love them all! As this is mainly a hobby for her, she only makes this soap a few times a year. I got a batch this time, but not sure when I will be able to get more, so let me kow if you want me to save you a bar or two or three. As a side note, it also appears to be quite safe. My dog ate the remaining piece of my bar two nights ago and is doing fine. Apparently it was tasty....
Before I go, just a reminder that Teresa is now at Sei Bella on Mondays, Thursdays and some Fridays offering massage from Swedish to deep tissue to focused problems. Lipo-Ex is available as a full or minipackage. Xeomin, Botox, Juvederm, and Radiesse are always available for your lines, creases and wrinkles. Gloss and VIPeels will help take away the sundamage and fine lines created this summer. Our IPL machine is very versatile. we can do hair removal, photofacials, spider vein treatments, acne and scar treatments...pretty much anything a laser can do except for the aggressive, ablative, skin resurfacing. Plus, IPL isn't painful.
I am always available to help you decide what treatment or product will work best for you. If I think you would be better served by seeing a plastic surgeon to achieve your goals, I'll tell you that, too, and be happy to recommend several good ones. Hope to get some new pictures up on the website and blog soon. Don't forget the Groupon on Thursday for DermaFrac.
