September Newlsletter

Hi Everybody!
    It's that time again!....School has started; vacations are over; hurricanes are blowing through! And very importantly, it's time to start thinking about your skin. Did you get some sun damage this summer? Did you do a lot of squinting and get some crows feet? Skin dry from the sun and the waves? Let's get your skin back in shape! Do you or your kids have really sensitive skin and have trouble with washing powders? I have a solution for you.
    Most of you should have gotten the email with the product sales on Arbonne and Bionet and the promotion on Sonya Dakar. Those prices and discounts are good while supplies last.
    As you know we love the VIPeel facial peels. They are TCA (trichloracetic acid) based and medical grade. Out of the peels we have used and tried ourselves, Jessner's, lactic, glycolic, etc.,, this is our favorite. It can be used in children down to the age of 12 and on all skin types and ethnicities. Our VIPeel rep, Michelle, visited on Monday and put a couple of their new peels on Sandy and me. I got the VIPeel Precision Plus which is stronger than the basic VIPeel. It is for tough melasma, pigment or sun damage. Besides TCA it also contains retinoic acid, salicylic acid, vitamin C, hydroquinone, and kojic acid. I'm very happy with the results. The sun damage I had show up after our summer vacation is gone! Sandy got the VIPeel Precision. It is great for oily skin, light sun damage and melasma. It can also be used on the hands, arms and chest. There is also a VIAcne Peel now. It treats active acne and scars and can be used on all skin types. Call and schedule your appointment for one. We worked all week, no downtime, and use the post procedure cream included in the take home package for any mild redness or itching. Depending on the peel you get, from the basic to the Precision Plus or Acne Peel Plus, the cost is $300-$400.
    Now for you sensitive skin folks....a washing machine attachment! It's called pureWash. It's environmentally friendly, and uses little or no washing detergent. It installs to your current washing machine and uses ozone to clean your clothes, and kill bacteria and viruses.  pureWash uses cold water and is available for top load or front load washers. I have some brochures at the office. For more info you can also visit Kordsmeier Furniture in Conway. Their web address is .....Phone 501-329-3946. Ray Kordsmeier is the owner and a great guy. He has one at his home. I think the pureWash retails about $400.
     Don't forget to touch up your Botox and get your Juvederm or Radiesse filler. Slip by for a massage, or get rid of some unwanted fat with Lipo-Ex. The results we've gotten with IPL for spider veins and sun damage has been amazing, too. For those of you who haven't gotten one of my "welcome packets" or been in lately, I have two specials on services right now: Get three IPl photofacials, a basic VIPeel and a bottle of cellular turnover treatment for $350 (regularly $600). This is a great to tackle pigment and sun damage in more than one way. The other special is 20 units of Botox and a basic VIPeel for $300 (regularly $580).
     And finally, the New York marathon is November 4th, barely 2 months away. I will be running it with 3 other members of the NF Endurance Team to raise money and awareness for neurofibromatosis and the research of the Children's Tumor Foundation. If you would like to read about my NF Hero, Austin (he's 7 and a really cutie), go to my NF NY marathon page at . While there, please think about making a donation by clicking on "Give Now" in the upper right hand corner. more thing. Raffle tickets are still available...$1 or check; mail or come by...prizes 20 units of Botox, a silk Su Shan robe or 2 massages. Plan to draw Oct 1st, sooner if I sell all the tickets before then. ALL proceeds go to the Children's Tumor Foundation.
     Have a great month and let us know what we can do for you. I love hearing from you!

August NewsLetter

Hi Everyone!
   I can not believe it's the first of August! 2012 is more than 1/2 over! And it isn't feeling much like Fall out there. Not sure what your kids and grandkids think about school starting back, but I bet you're ready (unless maybe you're a teacher)!
   On August 15th we're having a Sonya Dakar and Botox Event at Wired! Karla Larson, the owner, has generously offered us her very nice and very convenient space. Wired! is located at 400 N. Bowman in Little Rock. From 3:30-6:30 pm, we will gather for food, fun, drinks, and Botox. Most importantly, our Sonya Dakar rep from Texas will be there to talk to you about this wonderful line of facial products I've used for the last 6 years. She has free samples for the attendees and I'll be offering Botox and Sonya Dakar for a discount that night. So come join us at this drop in.  Karla will be there as well to answer any questions you may have about IT support. Wired! is a complete IT management company started in 1991. They also have a security department that designs and installs IP security camera systems. Karla was very helpful to me when I started Sei Bella Med Spa.
   It's also time to vote for the best beauty products and services in Central Arkansas. Winners will be featured in the 2012/2013 Little Rock Beauty Black Book. This will be included in a future issue of Soiree and Arkansas bride. Go to the following link to cast your votes by August 8th!......  They are having a drawing for a $250 gift certificate.
   94 days until the New York marathon! Four of us on the Arkansas NF Endurance Team are running it to raise money for the Children's Tumor Foundation and to increase awareness of neurofibromatosis. This is a terrible genetic disease that causes tumors to grow throughout the nervous system, including in the brain. Some tumors become cancerous. Advances in research over the last decade have helped not only neurofibromatosis patients, but also the entire community especially those with brain tumors. If you would like to make a donation, click on my New York Marathon webpage at the following link......... learn more about the NF spectrum of diseases go to
    I'm looking forward to a new procedure we're planning to offer this fall....PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections. I'll give you exact details closer to time, but PRP injection is done just like filler injections, such as Juvederm and Radiesse. We will first draw your blood, spin it down, then inject it in all the places we inject fillers, and also in the hollow areas under the eyes, sunken in cheeks, etc. Your own plasma that is injected contains stem cells and growth factors so you can build your own collagen. It's very exciting, so look for more info in an upcoming newsletter......
   Enjoy the rest of the summer if you can stand the heat. Let us know what we can do for you......
