Paraffin Wax Hand Treatment

There is nothing better than when someone compliments you with, “Wow, you have soft skin!”. It’s a nice pat-on-the-back to have someone notice how hard & well you take care of yourself. Of course, there isn’t just one fool proof way to achieve such soft skin, and every person is different, but Paraffin Wax treatments is a pretty good start!

 

Paraffin wax isn’t talked about enough! Not only does it work as a great moisturizer for healthier & softer skin, it’s also a fast-acting, drug-free, and versatile, heat therapy for arthritis joint pain relief. Here at Schenden’s Med Spa, we use this treatment on your hands, feet and even in facials.  This wax treatment acts as a thermotherapy, or heat therapy, which helps heal by increasing the blood flow, relaxing your muscles and reducing the stiffness in joints all while leaving your skin silky smooth & smelling fabulous!

 

How it works on your hands is you dip your hand into the paraffin wax bath 2-4x, then a wax baggy is placed over your wax covered hand & an oven mitt over the top of that. This locks in the heat & moisture while the wax does it’s magic. You may feel a little silly with two oven mitts on your hands, but don’t worry, your aesthetician will be more than happy to help if you need anything while your hands are otherwise occupied! You will have to keep these mitts on for at least 15 minutes. This is why it’s a great thing to add onto your Pedicure or other treatment you might be having at the spa!

 

Call us today to schedule your treatment & never hesitate to ask during your pedicure if you could have this treatment added on. You won’t be sorry!

Shellac Manicure – join the new trend in manicures!

Have you heard about the newest trend in nails? If you haven’t it is time you learn about Shellac, how amazing it is, how long it lasts, how affordable it is and how little time it takes out of your schedule. It is hard finding time to schedule that weekly manicure or find time for yourself in general, which is why we are so excited about the new product that is revolutionizing the nail industry and making your nails shine for weeks!Normal manicures dull in just a few days, but Shellac is different. It is a gel-polish hybrid that last up to two weeks. It goes on similarly to nail regular polish and is cured under a UV light like a gel nail product, leaving your nails beautifully manicured and virtually indestructible! Typically the shine and shimmer will last nearly 14 days – you gotta love that. No more dull chipped nails.

Shellac cannot be used to lengthen your nails, but it will help you grow them by keeping them strong and flexible. A shorter, natural nail is definitely on trend and more appropriate these days. So, say goodbye to those acrylics and get Shellac’d!

Another Bonus! – there is no more waiting hours for your manicure to dry! Since it is cured under the UV light it is dry nearly instantly, so you can move on with your day without worrying about damaging your nails. Having it removed is also simple and can be done quickly at the spa right before you have Shellac re-applied!

You can see why Shellac is becoming so popular and the new trend in nails. Expect to pay a bit more than your typical manicure for this product, but it is SOOOO worth it considering how long it lasts and how great it looks for weeks! If you are considering Shellac or another nail treatment such as a manicure or pedicure contact the spa at 248.524.3622.
