Top 5 Beauty Treatments in Allen



 

 

This month’s Allen Woman Top 5 is all about Beauty! 

Now, I honestly think that true beauty comes from within; feeling good about yourself from the inside out, that alone makes a big difference and is something that no one can take away from you. Outer beauty and taking care of yourself by having treatments that help you stay young and vibrant can be fun and important too! When you feel good about how you look and you feel relaxed and rejuvenated, it can make all of the difference in the world. I am going to share my Top 5 beauty treatments in Allen!

 

 

 

TruDerm

TruDerm is Allen’s newest leading-edge Cosmetic Dermatological center right in the center of Watter’s Creek. They offer everything from mole checks and acne treatments to Botox and body shaping. I went in for Botox; I had deep wrinkles in my forehead and those “eleven” lines between my eyebrows that everyone has! I had never had Botox before and personally I did not know much about it, all I knew was that it got rid of wrinkles, and fine lines. TruDerm has such a beautiful and welcoming office, and a very professional and highly trained staff that I felt comfortable right away. I learned that; Botox does not hurt, it takes 7-10 days to see the full results, Botox contains a Botulinum toxin type A (the active ingredient), and a human albumin (a protein found in human blood plasma). It is a synthesized protein, not the poison that can hurt you like some people think! My experience was amazing! I saw a big difference after three days and after seven, my wrinkles were completely gone! Botox lasts about three and a half months to four months before you begin to see a few of your wrinkles coming back. I had a great experience and I am headed back soon!

North Texas Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Have you ever had a body part that just stood out and really bothered you? One of mine was my very thin top lip. I was never one of those girls that could make that sexy kissy face, you know the one, that face that you see in almost every Instagram photo these days. I stopped by and visited with Dr. Slack, who was amazing by the way, he talks to you for a very long time no matter how small or large your request may be. There are many different types of fillers that you can use in your lips and each one does something a little different. Dr. Slack chose to inject a product in my lips called Restalyn Silk, he used this product because it would define the outline of my lips, plump them and get rid of the lines on and around my lips. I will say upfront that it was painful. Your lips are one of the most sensitive parts of your body, and they have many little nerve endings in them, but as soon as the needle broke through the skin, there was no more pain. It was well worth it! I love my new lips and would do it again. This procedure lasts anywhere from twelve to sixteen months. 

Nail Lounge

Now, I know what you are thinking…pedicure and manicure. No, not at all, although I do get those done there too, every three weeks! The Nail Lounge offers many more services that you may not know about, one being; facials! When I walked in, I had no idea what to expect, but it was one of the best facials that I have ever had! The facial was called the Custom Organic Facial that included a deep pore oxygen treatment. It was an hour long and included a hydration treatment, deep cleaning, anti-aging and gentle resurfacing. One of my favorite parts was the quality of the products that they used. The products that they use are from Eminence Organic Skin Care and they smell amazing. They use everything from a seaweed mask and Vitamin C Green Tea Serum to a Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoam with Lactic Acid in it. Your facial also includes a neck, face and hand massage, it is extremely relaxing. If you need a relaxing, facial that is customized just for your skin type and needs, stop by the Nail Lounge in Twin Creeks Village!

Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa

Hand and Stone is a hidden gem in the Villages of Allen. I decided to go in and try their LED Skin Phototherapy Treatment, I had heard that it was a great collagen stimulator and was good for dark spots. As a young girl, and I have to admit, even now I love the sun and I love being tan, but as we all know there is a price that comes with that as we age and that is sun spots. Hand and Stone’s LED treatment was formerly a beauty secret to the stars but now is available to all of us! It is a non-chemical, non-invasive alternative to skin rejuvenation! The lights are warm on your face when you have it done and they feel really good. My favorite part was the ClarityRX mask that they used with the LED lights. As soon as the esthetician applied it, I could feel it working deep under my skin. Afterwards, my skin was a little pink, but looked and felt incredible! Hand and Stone offers many other services such as massages, and hair removal. Try the LED facial, you will leave feeling like a rock star!

Fairview Dermatology

Fairview Dermatology is one of the newest Dermatological offices in town, and is located in Fairview Town Center. Dr. Kim-James is a minimalist when it comes to procedures and believes in non-invasive care where possible. Dr. Kim-James also carries an extensive line of skin care products. I wanted to try some of her products and see how they worked as far as corrective and preventative treatments, as opposed to lasers or surgical treatments. If I can treat my skin with a product that is healthy and works, rather than having a surgical procedure, count me in! The two products I chose to use were from Skin Ceuticals, one was called; Phloretin CF, which is an ant-oxidant treatment that prevents further damage and the second product I chose was called; Discoloration Defense which is a multi-phase serum that targets discoloration for brighter looking skin! If you are looking for an alternative to surgical treatments, you may want to start here!
