The Beauty of the IPL

The Beauty of the IPL

I’m getting married this summer which is exciting but since I am in my late 40’s, I have a little more “maintenance” to do than a young bride. Sun damage. Even for someone who has taken pretty good care of their skin, it’s inevitable when you are my age. And when you are suddenly looking at a beautiful new ring on your finger and spotty hands, well, it’s not so pretty. So I went to Vasu.

The Solution: The Vasu IPL

I was a novice at IPL’s (Intense Pulsed Light), but I had a friend who had been going to Vasu for her severely sun damaged face with incredible results (more on that in another post) so I decided it was my turn. WOW! After just one IPL, I can’t believe the results! It really works. I even went to the dermatologist for my annual skin check and when she looked at my hands, she immediately remarked, “Your hands look great!” I still have a few rounds to go because as with all treatments, it can take three to four treatments to get maximum results.

VASU: the Wise Choice

Now, a few words of caution, you don’t want to just go anywhere to get an IPL. You want to go somewhere that they know what they are doing, like Vasu. I appreciate Vasu because they are knowledgable as well as conservative. They don’t do something that they think will put your skin at risk for damage, yet they get results. For someone who is cautious with their skin, I really appreciate and respect their approach. I completely trust them with my skin which if you know me, is a huge compliment. Also, there is some down time after treatment, where the spots actually look worse, so don’t freak out. You will be admiring your spot free hands, face, chest, soon enough. I am personally very excited as it makes me feel on the outside, like the young bride I feel on the inside. Thank you, Vasu.

Why Vasu?

The Right Medispa: Knowledge. Experience. Results.

Once you decide that you have had enough of the unsightly bushes under your arms, your back or down there, you decide it’s time. Time to remove that hair, permanently, but where do you go? Or maybe you have long considered doing some anti aging treatments but you want to make sure you go to the best place in town, with the most knowledge, experience and results. Well, I am here to tell you why Vasu is the best place to go to for all skin related matters, whether its anti-aging, hair removal or advanced skin care. Here are 10 reasons (in no particular order) why Vasu is the best place in town and you should look no further.

Why Vasu: 10 Excellent Reasons

1) YELP & GOOGLE REVIEWS: Take a look at those YELP & GOOGLE reviews!! Talk about customer satisfaction. It pretty much sums up WHY VASU! See for yourself… VASU YELP & GOOGLE REVIEWS.

2) AFFORDABLE: More affordable than other places in town.

3) CONCERNS: For those of you who have any concerns or hesitations, what is so awesome about the women who run Vasu is that they explain everything. They take you through the whole process. All your questions will be answered and your concerns assuaged.

4) BRIDGES THE GAP: Vasu bridges the gap from a plastic surgeon to a basic esthetician.

5) SANITATION: Clean, sterilized, disinfected. Everything. From the lasers, to the supplies, to the table you lie on, to the floors, even the door handles. They take cleanliness very seriously and it is one of their top priorities. And if you still have any worries, they will be happy to disinfect the lasers for a second time, right before your eyes.

6) LOVE: They LOVE LOVE LOVE what they are doing! It’s infectious! You can just tell that their enthusiasm, and knowledge stems from a love of what they are doing. It really feels good to be in Vasu. They care and it shows. They take a real interest in you, the client and want you to leave there feeling good and happy with the results.

7) ETHNICITY: They take every ethnic background and understand all different skin types. This is VERY IMPORTANT when doing any skin treatments.

8) MY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: Vasu results are 10000x better than other skin places in town and I am speaking from personal experience both for anti-aging and hair removal. Before Vasu existed, I had my bikini area lasered. It took somewhere between 12-15 times (I lost count) to get the results I had been promised. My legs, however, through Vasu’s state of the art technology and experienced technicians, took only 6x!

9) CUSTOMER SERVICE: I think the Vasu ladies have gone through 5 star hotel training. They are top notch with their customer service. From scheduling, to your appointment, to following up, to everything in between, they leave no stone unturned in the entire process.

10) STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY: Not only do they have state of the art technology but they are constantly staying on top of the latest technology.

Find out for yourself Why Vasu. Once you do, I am confident you will never go anywhere else.

Time to Spring Clean!

… and we’re not talking about cleaning out your closet.

The snow has melted, the flowers are blooming, spring is finally here. I love me some spring cleaning! Cleaning and purging. Getting rid of the clutter. Opening up the windows. Cleaning out the cobwebs and dust bunnies. I don’t know what it is, but I suddenly want to purge myself of all the crap that has been accumulated throughout my house and piled up over the winter. I want to feel light and airy and minimal and tidy. That goes for my body as well.

In the last two days as the weather has been warm and sunny, I have been pulling out my skimpier clothing and have noticed some neglected areas on my body that could use some touch ups. I want to be hair free this summer. Don’t you?? While I was late to laser, mostly because it wasn’t even a thing back in my 20’s, I think it’s one of the great inventions of the 21st century. There is such a difference between the areas I have lasered versus the areas I haven’t. My calves are smooth as silk. My thighs are not. My bikini area is perfect. I never have to break out the razor right before putting on a swim suit, only to leave rashy bumps and an unattractive bikini line. And who, please tell me, finds hairy armpits attractive?!

Consistency matters…

One thing I want share that I have learned about laser, is you must be consistent. Be diligent with your appointments. This is how you will get the best results. The Vasu professionals will map out your appointments so you can catch those growth cycles at the right time and your hair will be gone forever. Hair laser removal does take a series of sessions but you will never have to shave again. And I mean ever.

So this is my advice, don’t just clean out the closet, give yourself a little spring cleaning too! Whether you are going to be in a swimsuit all summer or just shorts, or maybe even a skirt and tank top, surely those areas that have been covered up all winter, will be exposed. And I repeat, the brilliant thing about laser is once you get those hairs lasered, you never have to worry again about unwanted hairs poking out of unsightly places.

By the way, this is a great spring gift for any occasion! Oh and for you men out there, just as you probably don’t find hair poking out of a bikini appealing, we do not find hairy backs attractive… please run and get your laser appointment scheduled. We thank you.

2016: Commit to Your Skin!

Since the beginning of the new year, almost every person I know is on some sort of cleanse. They have strictly prohibited the following from their diet: alcohol, caffeine, sugar, wheat, dairy, etc. While I respect their ambitious goals, personally I find them hard to keep! This year, commit to your skin: I like to set myself up for success by taking care of my skin, which not only feels like I am doing something good for myself and is a goal that reaps rewards, but it’s also a treat. Not only is it relaxing and beneficial, but I love the ladies at Vasu. It’s a triple whammy in one. Unless, of course, you are getting hair removal – it may not be exactly relaxing, but the results make you feel sexy and smooth.

A Resolution to Keep: Commit to Your Skin

It is not too late to commit to your skin for 2016. It will pay off for years to come. A peel now and then, a laser here and there, a series of IPL’s, it makes for smooth, beautiful, wrinkle free, spot free, hair free, luscious skin. Now that’s a resolution I can keep! How about you?

The Specials Keep Comin’

And look out for the VASU specials. Every month Vasu offers packages at a discount. Whether you are doing chemical peels, a silk peel (I just had one and LOVED it!), or hair removal, it’s always best to buy in packages. Not only are you getting a discount (and who doesn’t like a bargain) but all of these services work best when you do them in a series. So you are committed to taking care of your skin and to getting a deal.

Simple Tips to Add to your New Years Resolutions

WATER! WATER! WATER! I know you’ve heard this a million times. So just do it! Drink 1/2 your weight in ounces. If you are 120lbs, that means drink 60 ounces of water. Water should be your BFF. It is what is sustaining you. Did you know that by the time you are thirsty you are already dehydrated? This is one of the single, easiest, free things you can do for your skin, body, health and mind so drink up! In fact, make it a habit to drink a large glass of water first thing in the morning before anything else. This not only helps your skin but helps your brain to respond quicker throughout the day.

Take Omega oils and watch your skin glow. Fish oil is amazing. When I take fish oil consistently, I notice two things immediately. My skin glows and my finger nails grow like weeds. I am always amazed that one daily tablespoon works such wonders.

Lastly, get good skin products for your daily home regime!! I can not stress this enough. I have used products for as long as I can remember and it has paid off. I continue to invest in this simple daily routine and love both the Epionce and Revision line! At night, I use the Epionce Intensive Nourishing Cream. Damn that stuff is good. Especially in this dry climate. During the day, I love Revisions Intellishade Broad-Spectrum SPF 45. This stuff rocks! You all know how important sunscreen is. This is the bomb. Try it. You won’t be disappointed.

Manscaping 101

What exactly is ‘Manscaping’? Think landscaping for a guy. Cleaning up those hairy areas? Hairy back? Hairy ass? Who needs those? Women hate those! Planet of the Apes went out of fashion ages ago. What about all those cyclists around town who shave their legs? Why not just permanently remove that hair, no more stubble, no more shaving, no pricking your partner with you stubbly legs. Smooth chest…yum….who doesn’t love a man with a smooth chest? Think David Beckham. There is no way his chest is that smooth without some serious manscaping. And I bet that that is not the only place his body is ultra smooth. Or what about those private areas…yep, I’m talking groin grooming…how about cleaning up those too while you’re at it? Us women have been onto Brazilians for quite some time now and you men have been enjoying the benefits. Well, it’s your turn now. Women like groomed, bare areas just as much as you do. And according to a Gilette commercial there’s an added benefit, “When there’s no underbush, the tree looks taller.” ;-0

How does Vasu manscape? With a laser! “Why laser vs razor,” you ask? I’ll tell you why. Because after a series of sessions, you will never have to do it again. Your hair in those unwanted places will be groomed and gone forever. You will never have that itching, burning feeling or stubble again. You will never have prickly hairs just a day after shaving. You will be as smooth as a babies bum, and you will reap the benefits.

Nervous? Embarrassed? Vasu estheticians are professionals. They have seen it all, done it all, and are experts in the art of manscaping. There is nothing they can’t do or have done. They will make you feel at ease. Manscaping is becoming increasingly more popular and mainstream and in fact, Vasu has been doing it for quite some time.

Whether you do this for yourself, for her, or for him, you won’t regret it. Hairless is SO 21st century. Dare to be bare!

The Chemical Peel Perfected

chemical peel

Brrr, winter is coming: its the perfect time for a chemical peel!

If you are a Game of Thrones fan, that means you might die. Fortunately for you, it simply means that this is a REALLY GOOD time to consider a chemical peel. Why is that you ask? As we enter the shortest and darkest days of the year, as well as the coldest, it is probable that you are not going to be in the sun nearly as much as you were this summer. In other words, it’s a great time to do some damage control on what may have transpired over the summer. I know what you are thinking, do I really want to look like Samantha from Sex and the City in the infamous chemical peel episode??? This is NOTHING like that. In fact, you will probably look like all those aging celebrities that you are wondering what they do to have such amazing skin. What are they doing? PEELS is what! Okay and a little botox and plastic surgery but we’re talking about peels right now, so I’m going to stick to the benefits of peels.

Chemical peels give you that glow!

Vasu’s peels are state of the art peels that work on the surface to stimulate collagen production, smooth and even out skin tone, reduce hyper-pigmentation and overall anti-aging. Does it sound too good to be true? It’s absolutely been my experience. People often ask about my skin and what I do. Honestly, peels have been my number one anti-aging go-to. I was terrified at first, having the Samantha Jones visual in my head and now I am writing this post because I am such a believer. Want a pick me up? Get a peel. Want smoother skin? Get a peel. Want to stimulate collagen production? Get a peel asap. It’s that good! In fact, get a few. It’s the best bang for your buck, non-evasive single best thing you can do for your skin. And trust me, coming from someone who is officially middle age…you are going to want that collagen. (Nan Gentry, November 2015)
