Tis the Season

Happy Winter, Holiday season Everyone!

If you are anything like me, you are busy getting ready for the holidays! And, perhaps you’re a bit stressed out and overwhelmed with coming up with ideas for gift giving. I know it can be incredibly stressful thinking of the perfect present, and unfortunately that can over shadow an otherwise happy time of year.

So, I thought maybe I could share a few gift ideas and where to buy them.

For the special lady and gentlemen in your life,

How about packaging a spa gift card( from Anton’s , of course), with a corresponding gift,

A pedicure gift card with a pair of flip flops and toeless pedi socks( I got mine on Amazon for cheap)

A massage gift card with a homemade coupon for babysitting during her appointment and an Uber to drive her back and forth, since the massage will RELAX her so well😉

How about some cozy PJ’s ( affordable ones available everywhere, including Old Navy, Target, and Gap) with a bottle of sleepy/goodnight essential oil blend( Anton’s carries a few, Amazon as well) and a trial size of Aveda Hand and Foot relief( available at Anton’s in holiday gift sets or separate)

A family game night basket. Filled with a card game, or a pack of dominoes, a cute pad of paper and pen for scoring, bottles of root beer and a bag of snack mix

Looking forward to SUMMER skin care gift bag. Include sun block, tinted moisturizer, lip balm , a pair of sunglasses and a beach towel. (great products by Skinmedica and Image available at Anton’s).

Also, I find that an experience makes a great gift, for instance, tickets to a play or comedy show for after the holiday season. It’s always a treat to have something to look forward to. Or, perhaps a house cleaning gift certificate to clean up after the rush of the season.

Hopefully this gave you

Always Thankful

Hello Friends!

Just a short note to wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving! Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. And , we, at Antons, want you to know that we are Thankful for all our clients! Xoxo Jenimg_0172

Face the truth

Let’s face it, none of us are getting any younger,me included. Being a 43 year old woman in a career that surrounds me with 20 somethings, reminds me of this on a daily basis. We are ALL flanked by advertisements selling youth and beauty, but, what products , services and service providers can you trust?

I am in a unique position, because I am blessed to be in a high end Medical Spa, where I am privy to all the new products and services and work with the most educated aestheticians,RNs, and a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in facial surgery, enhancement and rejuvenation.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Dr Anthony Krausen, at Anton’s Med spa and got some great information about the best treatments, injectables and fillers for each individual’s needs. We also discussed his upcoming event at Anton’s on August 25th, where he will be showcasing his “liquid facelift” on appropriate participants. (For more information on this event, please, visit our webpage and Facebook page)

One distinction I took note of immediately about Dr Krausen, he has a strong conviction never making a person look “overdone” or doing unnecessary services. His philosophy is ” I want people to look like themselves, just, rested and refreshed” and ” looking as young and vibrant as they feel”.

Dr Krausen begins his relationship with each patient with a thorough consultation, in this time he listens to your expectations and needs,and shares an honest, professional opinion.

A very important part of any treatment you may choose to do, is using medical grade skincare. Both Dr Krausen, and the Anton’s MedSpa service providers are strong advocates of this. “It’s about achieving and protecting the results you’ve invested in” says Dr Krausen, You cannot expect professional, long lasting results without using professional products. Dr Krausen will always give his skincare recommendations for use both before and after any treatments he performs, such as Skinmedica Ha5, a glycolic acid and retinol, to name a few.

His liquid facelift consists of a series of Botox, fillers, injectables and lip filler/ lift ,tailored to each patient, that mimics a facelift. Giving you a rested, lifted and rejuvenated appearance, without the downtime and expense of a traditional surgical facelift. Dr Krausen prefers using a Cannula needle, which reduces bruising, discomfort and needle pokes, benefiting the patient.

We as a society ,Woman and men included, are becoming far more comfortable freely discussing these types of procedures and treatments .It is no longer “taboo” to share your experiences with Botox, fillers, ect.  This leads to better information and a much more educated decision when choosing a provider.

After talking to, and getting to know Dr Krausen, I felt very comfortable suggesting that my husband go in for a consultation to discuss options for the areas around his eyes that concern him. John complains that because of some discoloration and sagging around his eyes, he himself, and his coworkers and friends think he looks tired. He is a former US Marine, and currently works for the military, and is someone I would describe as masculine. He has never been vain, and certainly not a man I would call “metrosexual”. However, he has the energy and body of a much younger man, and would like his outer appearance to match how he feels inside.  He isn’t interested in looking like someone else, just rested and refreshed.  I am very confident in Dr Krausen’s expertise and look forward to seeing the results. I will be sure to keep you all posted!image

The main point here, is, make sure you trust and feel comfortable with any service provider that you choose. They should be knowledgeable, informative, and you should not feel pressure to  do MORE than you feel you need.

Dr Krausen and the nurses and aestheticians at Antons are the best, and most educated providers in the business, and show true compassion and care for their clients.  I trust my face, and that of my loved ones to these exceptional people.

I can’t wait to share the future results with you! Until then, don’t forget the SUNSCREEN!

XOXO Jen

New Perspective

Hello Friends!
Just returning home from a beautiful vacation in San Diego. Had a lot of fun with my husband, my daughter( who is a student there, at SDSU) and my daughter’s best friend, Taylor. We soaked in some sunshine, and packed in some good ” touristy” stuff, like a Segway tour, Farmers markets, beaches, USS Midway tour, ….
The great thing about a good vacation, is when it ends, you’re actually ready to return home and life has a fantastic ” New perspective”. You’ve enjoyed every sunny minute of your trip, but, you are ready to sleep in your own bed again, see your pets, and simply get back to your regular routine… just refreshed and renewed.
Sometimes, we all need the time to step back, and take a break from the “norm”.
We need to be in a different place, with a different set of rules( or no rules),a new comfort zone, and nothing “usual”, to make us appreciate our normal lives and our “usual”.
I know for me, it’s stepping back from housework, errands and yes, work, to really be able to recharge, and ” get my groove back”. It’s very easy to get into a rut, and forget what made you passionate in life before. For me, I love my job, I love getting creative, making people feel good, I love that my clients are my friends and I get to spend time with them everyday. But, like anyone, I need breaks. I need to remember why I love this job. And, after vacation, I love walking into the beautiful salon I am privileged to be employed, and really appreciate it.
I encourage all of you to take the time, even if it’s short,to step away. Turn off, tune out, and find your groove again! See your world from a ” New perspective” , or even the old one that has just gotten blurred.
XOXO Jen

Fall clean up

Hello friends!

Fall is here, and for some of you, that means a skin “tune up” after summer sun and fun. A new treatment to Anton’s that has us excited is  Resurfx.

 

The Lumenis ResurFX is the latest in non-ablative, fractional laser technology to improve skin discoloration, stretch marks, acne scars, wrinkles and more. Non-ablative means it does not destroy or ablate the skin cells, while fractional means it is only affecting a fraction or percentage of the skin. The benefit of the ResurFX is that it is able to get great results with minimal recovery time unlike the CO2 laser, which has several days or more of peeling, crusting and possible swelling after the procedure. The optimum benefits of ResurFX are obtained with several treatments depending on the condition and desired results

WHAT CONDITIONS DOES THE RESURFX TREAT?

– Age spots or sun spots
– Fine lines and wrinkles
– Stretch marks or striae
– Hyperpigmentation or discoloration
– Uneven skin tone
– Scars from acne or surgery
– Lax or loose skin

HOW DOES RESURFX WORK?

The ResurFX laser by Lumenis®, one of the world’s leading makers of medical devices, is a skin resurfacing option that prioritizes patient comfort just as much as effectiveness. It is a non-ablative laser, which means it stimulates the skin to develop collagen without harming or ablating any skin. As collagen increases, the skin looks tighter, more even, and more youthful. ResurFX is also a fractional laser, which means the laser is delivered to the skin in tiny dots and to only a fraction of the skin. The ResurFX requires only one pass over the skin to produce effective results, reducing treatment time. Finally, since it is a non-ablative, fractional laser, the recovery time after the procedure is minimized.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE RESURFX ROCEDURE?

During a ResurFX laser skin rejuvenation treatment, we typically use a topical anesthetic. Due to the non-ablative nature of the ResurFX laser, most patients find treatments extremely comfortable Additionally, we use a cooling air device that blows refreshing, cold air on the treated areas for comfort. Treatments can take 20 minutes or more, depending on the size of the targeted area.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE RESURFX PROCEDURE?

After ResurFX laser skin resurfacing, patients generally have recovery time with some redness and swelling after the procedure. Patients can return to their normal activities the day after the procedure. Recovery time is short and relatively comfortable. Redness, swelling, and minor irritation similar to a mild sunburn may develop, but these effects typically subside in just a few days. Sun exposure before and after treatment should be avoided and a sunscreen with SPF of 30 or higher should be worn daily in the days after the procedure. Once completely healed, ensure you wear at least a sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher every day to help protect your skin long-term.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?

ResurFX is completed as a series of treatments. Because it is a limited downtime procedure, it usually requires multiple treatments for significant and meaningful results. Typically, at least 3-4 treatments about one month apart are necessary to obtain optimum results, although this varies by the individual and their goal.

If this sounds like something that would meet your skincare needs, schedule an appointment with one of our highly skilled laser technicians today!

Have a great day! Xoxo Jen
