Indy Esthetician and Microcurrent Pro Update:  Ok, I'm such a goof!  I've been doing lots of Dot matrix Radio frequency treatments to myself and although my skin was looking better, it looked a bit lackluster. I recently read an article that said the average American diet, no matter how healthy, was found to be deficient in vitamin B complex, C, D and magnesium. A bell rang in my head saying "you forgot your vitamin C!"  And it's true, I had run out of my Image Hydrating Anti Aging serum (a best seller that packs in THREE types of highly absorbable and effective vitamin C). I put it on that night and viola! The next morning my wattle was back UP there and the rest of my skin, especially my cheek area (where we start to lose volume at my, eh hum, "advanced" age of 45) was fuller and less dry looking.  If you don't have some form of vitamin C in your Skincare routine (I'm talking to you, Nerium users) RUN, don't walk to buy Image's Vital C serum, Creme or Intense Creme.  You WILL notice a difference right away. And don't forget, vitamin C plays a HUGE role in collagen synthesis and without it, your skin will not thrive!!!

Did you know?
The simplest way to look younger now is to use sunscreen, however not all sunscreens are made equally.  

If you are in a time crunch in the morning, why use more than one cream?  A high quality all-in-one day cream should contain SPF AND a bevy of powerful ingredients to treat and protect your skin all day long.  Look for cutting-edge ingredients like plant stem cells and VBOSC (a non-acid, fat soluble form of Vitamin C that brightens sun spots) as well as other skin savers. 

Image Skincare's Prevention + Daily Ultimate Protection Moisturizers contain all the ingredients mentioned above, plus many other antioxidants so you are covered all day. 

Also, be sure to apply your sunscreen from your hairline to your breast bone.  The neck and the chest get scorched by the sun in the car, so its best to keep those areas covered. Plus, the neck and chest will give away our age just a surely as the face will, so protect them too!
If you want supple, lifted and hydrated skin, contact me for relaxing yet effective treatments.  Call or text now to book an appointment (317) 997-2260 or bookonline.


Have you tried...?
Fractional Radio Frequency

Fractional RF treatments are relaxing and effective.  While regular RF is painful and usually requires a dental anesthesia block for client comfort, fractionated RF is not painful. You only feel a slight heating sensation on your skin. With regular RF, you feel the full blast of heat from the treatment head, because deep heat is required to get collagen contraction and thus renewal. Fractionated RF's treatment head has an array of 96 holes in it so the full impact of the heat is not felt, but the skin still gets a full treatment.  The results?  Lifted, plump, tighter skin with less wrinkles without the pain and absolutely NO DOWNTIME.

"I was featured on this blog by certified life coach and career coach Drew Carey in Indianapolis!"

This is from Drew Carey's blog.  He is a life coach in Indianapolis, Indiana. 
-------
This blog has veered from its original intent to spotlight inspirational people who followed their inner wisdom to great success. I started writing about my own interests which have moved toward career coaching as my life coaching practice has evolved. Now the people who inspire me are those who left their jobs in corporate America to do what they love.

My latest inspiraton is Christine Byer, owner of Christine Byer Esthetics. I met her at church. She has an adorable daughter named Cici who brings smiles to everyone's face at the church! We finally officially met at the Easter Sunday service this year and made a date to meet for coffee a few weeks ago. In keeping with trying to support local coffeehouses, we decided to meet at Perk Up in Broad Ripple.  Part of me doens't want it to get busy because it's such a lovely oasis for me during the day. But it's a great place with amazing coffee!

Christine told me about how she had worked in her early career in sales and marketing for several companies in Texas and Florida. Like many of us, she wondered if there could be more to her life than her career was offering to her.  She graduated from Indiana University and was surprised to find herself considering beauty school for a new career.  She remembers being the "Groomer" in her family that included 5 sisters.  She was in charge of hair and makeup and many other chores to make her family look their best. 

Flash forward 15 years later and Christine is now a master esthetician and considered an industry leader in many skincare modalities, including photorejuvenation and microcurrent technology. She explained how microcurrent works to me so well that even I want to get a treatment! She places electrodes on designated areas on the face and neck based on each client's unique facial characteristics.  A small electrical current is given so that the muscles of the face are strengthened. It also increases the production of collagen and elastin.  This can reduce the appearance of wrinkles.  She calls it personal training for the face!
Her advice to anyone considering a career change? "I would say, not to be trite or cheesy, but follow your heart because that's where your passion is. Not all days in your new field of choice will be rosy. It's passion that carries you through. Many months into my new career, I made lots of mistakes (going out on my own too soon, choosing bad business partners, not marketing enough in person, etc.) but it was my love of esthetics and all things skincare that helped me get up in the morning and find my next client. I say, do your research, tap into your passion and go for it!"

Thank you, Christine, for being an inspiration to my clients and everyone who wonders if they can have a life of passion and meaning by embarking on a new career.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Did you know?
Deeply heating the skin with Radio Frequency waves causes skin tightening and is the gold standard for nonsurgical facelifting

When Thermage came out with their orginal radio frequency (RF) skin tightening machine over ten years ago, it was a tremendous success. Since then, many other manufacturers have come out with different variations of RF technology with varying results.  I have found that combining Fractional RF (explained below) with LED and Microcurrent makes for a fantastic, no downtime, photo-ready facethat stays plump and lifted longer. In fact, it's such a terrific combo that I have it on sale until July 31st.  Purchase a microcurrent, LED and RF treatment for only $175. You save $50!
If you want supple, lifted and hydrated skin, contact me for relaxing yet effective treatments.  Call or text now to book an appointment (317) 997-2260 or book online.
