Getting red-carpet ready with the Perfector

We’ve been telling our clients about the Perfector, which will be hitting the studio in early March. Hollywood is embracing the Perfector machines as well, with celebrities using them before red-carpet events to look youthful, radiant and slim (yep, they use the machines on their entire bodies).

Let’s remind you what the Perfector can do:

  • Erase wrinkles                               
  • Heal acne and rosacea                                   
  • Firm and tones skins
  • Erase dark circles and puffiness     
  • Diminish scars
  • Thicken skin by regenerating tissue      
  • Close open pores and improves skin quality
  • Remove pigmentation   

With all of these benefits, it’s no wonder that stars would use the Perfector to look firm and toned. We can’t wait to deliver the same results to you.

Based on decades of research that was initiated on Bell’s Palsy and burn victims, the Perfector is based on the Nobel Prize-winning discovery that the cell membrane contains a specific amount of electricity. The Perfector offers the cell the specific amount of electricity needed for skin regeneration by adjusting the electrical impulse for your skin type and thickness. Cosmopolitan magazine calls it “the Star Wars of modern facials.” Combined with our classic French skincare techniques, this cutting-edge machine will help you to look like your absolute best self. Get ready for YOUR close-up.


Bill Clinton and the alkaline way

Cnn_ess_ornish-cropped-proto-custom_1 We’ve been singing the praises of an alkaline diet, and now Bill Clinton is too! Check out his interview with Wolf Blitzer, where he describes his dramatic weight loss through an alkaline-friendly diet, which has the capacity to heal the body and turn around heart disease.

Have you discovered the wonders of an alkaline diet? Eating foods that alkalize your system like green drinks, raw vegetables, and nuts, and avoiding acid-producing foods like meat, sugar, and processed foods can drastically change your health and your weight. Jill has long been an advocate of an alkaline lifestyle and we carry P. Jentschura products in the studio that will help to alkalize your system. From MorgenStund porridge to Wurzelkraft plant granules to treat your system internally to copper body brushes and AlkaBath to promote elimination of toxins, the products have quickly become key to many of our clients' wellness plans. One client has lost 15 pounds since October by changing her diet and incorporating P. Jentschura into her daily regimen. Come in and see what all the buzz is about!





Gold-medal Skincare

Lindsey-vonnKnee-deep into the Winter Olympics and with the Academy Awards looming, we thought Jill should weigh in on skin-care considerations: 

  • If you are in very cold conditions, your skin needs extra protection. You wouldn’t go out in sub-zero weather without the proper gear and clothing. Your skin needs the same consideration. In addition to a great moisturizer, look for a good sunscreen with a high SPF (Jill loves Ombrelle), particularly if you are in high altitudes. And everyone should be taking fish oils to lubricate their skin from the inside out. 
  • For a big upcoming event, start a skin-care regimen about three months in advance if you haven't already been taking care of your skin properly. In addition to at-home care, schedule a treatment (we start with a Classic French Facial so we can get an understanding of your individual skin needs and make a treatment plan) every two to three weeks until the skin responds, then once a month until the event. Of course, once the occasion has passed, keep your skin radiant through regular treatments and great skincare.


Oh what a night!!!

We want to thank everyone who came and enjoyed the festivities at our Holiday party.  We especially appreciate all your food donations to Northwest Harvest.  Thanks to your generosity, we filled up two very large container boxes.

The evening reminded all of us of how many wonderful clients we have, clients who have become our friends.  And for that we feel blessed.

XO, Jill











Paris 2009

Paris 123 Vive la France…..

This fall I took Taryn, my lead skincare therapist, with me on my annual training trip to Paris. We went for Cosmeeting — a trade show for everything new in the industry in France as well as all over the world.

The trade show was a bit smaller this year than past years but we still found some useful information to bring back to our clients.

Paris 105
For me, the best part was being able to see the new training center and spa for Biologique where we studied  the newest treatments offered in Paris but not yet available here in the US. I learned about an amazing nori seaweed treatment that left my skin very firm and I could feel all the serums that were worked into it.  And it looked great for weeks!

We also received additional training on the Jacquet-Leroy massage that is a French technique that Josette Allouche, renowned osteopath and co-creator of Biologique Recherche, has perfected over the years. 

As always, Paris was a vision everywhere we looked and Taryn was so much fun to travel with. She is a gem.
