Get Your Summer Body In Spring

Summer is around the corner and though we enjoy our very own summer year round in Palm Beach we still have to work on getting our Summer Bodies ready for all the summer beach fun and fabulous pool parties.  At Anushka Spa we offer multiple service to help you have your best body in no time.  Whether your issue is cellulite or stubborn belly fat we can help.

Anushka has been named the “THE Anti-Cellulite Maven” by W Magazine and the “Cellulite Exorcist Extraordinaire” by Vogue. She has been interviewed on the Today show, Good Morning America, and Live with Regis and Kelly, to name a few. Her cellulite programs have been featured in international beauty and fashion magazines such as Vogue, Allure, Cosmo and Harper’s Bazaar as recently as May 2014.

Anushka’s treatments offer multiple modalities of cutting-edge technology including radiofrequency, infrared, pneumatic compression, ultrasound, pulsed-magnetic field detoxing, slimming body wraps and photomology therapies.

If cellulite is not your issue we can help with stubborn love handles, thigh fat and other nuisance areas that won’t disappear with diet and exercise.  SculpSure is a breakthrough in light-based body contouring designed to reduce stubborn fat in problem areas such as the abdomen and love handles, helping you achieve a slimmer and natural looking appearance without surgery or downtime.  SculpSure’s body contouring technology is able to target and destroy these fat cells in just 25 minutes without affecting the skin’s surface. Over time, these damaged fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body, with results seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks. There is no recovery time following treatment, so you can resume your daily activities immediately.

Whether you’re looking for your Summer 2017 body or to tone, tighten, lift or contour, our Spa and Cosmedical team can have you looking and feeling your best this year and for years to come.  Book your appointment or consultations online or by phone or text to 561-820-0500.

 

SculpSure™ + Sculptra® = Body Perfection

The past few years have seen some pretty phenomenal changes in regards to redefining your body without surgery. As new uses develop for older products and new machines actually do reinvent a better wheel, perfection is within our grasp!
We all know diet and exercise are mandatory not just for a fit body but for a solid state of well being. However that only works on appearance so long…eventually there are pockets of fat that nothing seems to relieve and the skin, well, it just isn’t the same. Cellulite begins to consume the backside, the knees find wrinkles from who knows where, and everything begins to sag: first a little, then a lot.
The first truly effective fat removing device (permanently removing) was Coolsculpt™. This device cooled a chunk of fat down to a temperature that was incompatible with the living cell, thereby destroying it. The only problem is that not only was the treatment dreadfully long, but it removed fat in various areas leaving a “shelf” of fat surrounding the target area. If you did not like that shelf (I understand no one did) then you had to undergo another treatment targeted to that particular area. This proved costly for patients expecting a more even result.
The latest effective fat removing device does not grab the fat and suck it into a container to treat it but rather uses 4 flat pads that transmit laser energy that passes through the skin and targets the fat layer at a 1.5cm depth. The skin is kept cool by circulating refrigerated water at the surface of the pads. Because there is a 30% radius of relayed energy, the fat is removed in a smooth, even fashion. The reduction is a bit more than is seen with the Coolsculpt device.
So now, the only thing that remains is the sagging, crepey, dimpling skin. Sculptra® is an injectable collagen stimulant, not a filler. When placed superficially under the skin, your skin is stimulated to grow fresh, healthy, new, stronger skin that will once again take you back to years ago. Placed in strategic areas of concern, you will once again relive those youthful years when the word “crepe” was reserved only for a paper you put out for birthday parties and baby showers.

Lighten and Brighten For The New Year

Promenade into 2017 looking younger, healthier and more beautiful with A Vitalize peel.  This procedure aims to accelerate skin exfoliation by the use of chemical substances resulting in renewed, healthier looking skin and more uniform complexion.   Vitalize Peels are appropriate for patients with mild-to-moderate skin imperfections like:

  • Skin aging
  •  Sun exposure
  •  Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Skin unevenness from acne scarring
  • Other pigmentary changes

After the Vitalize Peel®, patients will notice an improvement in the appearance of overall skin condition, diminishment in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smoothness of skin texture, more even skin color, and improved skin clarity.

The Beauty of Volbella

The Beauty of Volbella
The Juvéderm (Allergan) family has welcomed its latest addition: Volbella®. Volbella is a hyaluronic acid (like Juvéderm) but is manufactured to be a soft and subtle addition to the line of products that addresses lips, fine lines, and subtle issues that require a gentle enhancement.
The look of Volbella is refined especially around the mouth where we tend to accumulate the dreaded “smoker’s lines”. The area does not get elevated so the platypus look is avoided and swelling is nearly non-existent. The lips are gently enhanced into a perfect pout, rather than a protruding trout. The luxurious feel of this new filler is heartily welcomed by all!

Fall Fab: From Lips To Lashes

We’ve officially said goodbye to summer and are excited about all the fabulous fall trends. This year is the year of Lips and Lashes. Long lashes and dark brows are all over magazine covers and the runway. From tinted lashes (and brows) to dark red lips we are loving the look. Some of our favorite lippies this season are Kevin Aucoins dark, romantic black cherry lip color Black Dahlia, Oribe’s The Red and Mona, a flattering reddish brown by Nars. Worried your lips aren’t full enough to rock these bold colors? We can definitely help with that. Dr. Bonnie Marting can help get your lips looking more full and plump with a site of Juvederm or Resty. Whether you’ve noticed your lips thinning over time, or simply want fuller more natural looking lips these are two great options.

Whether you’re new to lash and brow tinting or a seasoned expert, we guarantee you haven’t seen perfection if you haven’t made a trip to see Ellie Malmin, our expert Lashologist and Palm Beach brow guru. Don’t trust your eyes to just anyone. Lash and brow tinting is definitely an art and requires precision and skill. Don’t start the glamorous Palm Beach holiday season without stopping in to see us.

Anushka’s Style Experts Dish on How To Have Healthy Hair

Quit using your hot styling tools? Cut off a few inches? Cease coloring altogether? Most of us are simply not willing to give up our beauty routines in search of healthier hair. Anushka’s styling experts share insider secrets on how to regain the health of your hair without compromising the finish you crave.

The 48-Hour Rule
Taking showers every day is actually detrimental to hair. It promotes frizz and breakage of the hair shaft, while inhibiting the natural oils from nourish and protect the follicle. If you’re a daily washer, try to skip a day in between to let your hair re-generate itself. If you’ve got traditionally dry hair, you can go up to 4 days without washing with the help of a good hair cap. Keep hair fresh, light and fragrant with a dry shampoo. These formulations help to keep hair looking voluminous and offers additional hold for days. Try Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray ($44). Not only are the ingredients ultra-luxurious but the signature scent is intoxicating.
Prep Like A Pro
It’s critical to fully read the label of your beauty products and understand just how they should be used in order to take advantage of their full benefit. We’ve all been guilty of using too little, or too much of the recommended amount. Not only will you miss out on the awesome power of your products, but you may also be under-protecting hair, leading to further damage. Pro stylists use just the right amount of product to prep hair by picking up wet sections and spritzing (or evenly coating) the entire length, hitting all of the right angles, ensuring the formula is evenly distributed by combing through afterward. If you style often, make sure you’re using heat-protecting formulations, like those found in the Kérastase Discipline Collection. We recommend Spray Fluidissime ($42), a thermal-protecting spray that promises up to 72-hours of frizz prevention and offers heat protection up to 450 degrees. If you prefer a crème serum, try Keratin Thermique ($43), a priming crème with humidity and frizz inhibiting properties, that promises to reduce blowdry breakage by 85%.
Throw in the Towel
Nothing damages hair more than our sacred styling tools. While they work wonders – curling, bending, flattening, smoothing – all things we love and crave, they are also the culprit behind split, frazzled and dying ends. Consider what a difference it would make to cut down on using your blowdryer for just 5 minutes every time you styled. Start by removing more moisture post-shower by throwing in the towel, and patting hair with paper towels, or a cotton shirt. Believe it or not, these fabrics help wick away more moisture without putting unnecessary stress on the hair. Towel drying is more damaging to hair and can cause pressure on the follicle, which can make it more difficult to style. Not only will you save a few minutes every day getting the finish you want, but you’ll help hair get to a healthier place blowout by blowout.
Get To Great Lengths
There is a great compromise to styling hair and also wanting long, lush locks. So often, we over-process hair to the point where you eventually have to cut your losses and start fresh. Test out styling options that help you stay sans-heat. Try braiding towel-dried hair, leaving it in to dry overnight. Loosen in the morning for beautifully natural-looking waves. If you need more help going au-naturel, choose a weekend (especially if “scrunching” isn’t something you’ve done since high-school) and test-drive different formulations that offer texture and hold for curls, or oil-based smoothing solutions for loose waves. We love the all-natural products from Davines. These Italian-made formulations are amazing for sustaining naturally healthy, beautiful hair. Try products from the Authentic Collection, which are formulated with rich botanicals that truly nourish hair to a smooth, velvety finish. We recommend the Authentic Nourish Oil ($54), and their Authentic Moisturizing Balm ($32), a product that can universally deliver deep hydration to hair and be used as a moisturizer for the body.
If you’re looking for texture and control, check out Bumble & Bumble’s Curl Conscious Defining Cream ($29), which helps to sculpt curls without weighing down hair, or BB Gel ($26), which offers a little more hold without the tackiness characteristic of other formulas.
There is no loss to testing out different styling options, especially if it affords you a few more winks in the morning, and takes the heat off your hair for a bit. We love the idea of mixing up the options, especially if that means giving hair a well-deserved rest. You don’t have to stop using your “hot-tools” in order to have healthy hair, but exploring other options is a great way to mix up your look and invest some TLC into your style routine.

Anushka’s experts share summer beauty tips and DIY tricks to protect your hair from the elements of summer and create easy, elegant styles in a snap.

1. Make Your Own DIY Salt Spray For Oceanic Waves

Recipe 1: Simple Salt Spray

Take 20 oz. of seltzer water and a teaspoon of sea salt. Mix them together and pour it into a spray bottle.

Recipe 2: Polynesian Blend

Dissolve 1 teaspoon of sea salt into 1 cup of hot water. Mix 1 teaspoon of coconut oil with 1 tablespoon of hair gel. Add 1 teaspoon or 1 tablespoon (depending on how dry your hair is). Whisk together, pour into a bottle and enjoy Hawaiian tropic tresses.

2. Create An Easy, Elegant Updo With Just A Headband

Place a headband on, preferably with an elastic band that holds tight onto the back side of your head. Simply begin picking up 1 inch thick sections or so and tucking them up and around the bottom of the headband until it is all secured up and away from your neck. This style is also a great way to achieve beach curls when assembled with damp hair first.

3. Protect Your Hair From Damaging Chlorine With…Tap Water?

Believe it or not, by simply rinsing your hair off before you hit the pool, you’ll be able to ward off hair-destroying toxins like chlorine. Why? Your porous hair will soak up the water first, which will help deter it from soaking in the pool water afterward. Beauty experts also mention that spraying a leave in conditioner (when your shower or smartwater is out of reach) for the same protective power.

4. Choose The Right Products To Fight Off Summer’s Elements

When hair becomes dry, it soaks up the moisture in the atmosphere, causing frizzy ends and drying the cuticle. Properly hydrating your hair with the right, specifically engineered hair products will help prevent this and leave you with sleek strands through the heat of the summer. Choose products with the following callouts: hydrating, anti-humidity, sulfate-free, UV protection, and alcohol-free. Speaking of alcohol, not only is it bad for your body but it wreaks havoc on your hair!

5. Sun Powered Conditioning Masque

Anushka recommends restorative masques from Oribe, Davines and Kerastase

While we don’t recommend over exposing your hair and scalp to the suns powerful rays, but there is a way to take advantage of that energy to give you more hydrated hair. Create your own “Sun Masque” by using a well-engineered, deep conditioning treatment, like Davines’ “NouNou” ($37 for 9oz.). This nourishing masque will help to repair dry, processed or brittle hair with active ingredients like tomato extract formulated in Italy.

6. Elegant Updo: Upside Down French Braid Ballerina Bun

This style is perfect after you've left the beach, when hair is easy to style infused with salt from the sea!

Create this gorgeous updo easily with damp hair or 2-3 day old hair for the right hold (also works great after the beach when the sun and sweat has made your hair perfect for styling!)

    1. Flip head upside down and comb upward, removing hair from the neck
    2. Select a section of hair at the nape of the neck and separate it into 3 pieces
    3. Criss cross the sections like a regular braid, and afterward, beginning from one side, grab additional hair from each side of the braid and twist together again (do not add hair to the center piece.
    4. Continue this until you reach the crown of the head
    5. Gather ALL of the hair and tie into a high pony tail
    6. Using a chignon or your own version, create a bun around the base of the pony tail

7. SPF: Scalp Protecting Formulas

Create your own hair SPF by mixing sunscreen and water into a spray bottle.

SPF for your hair is often overlooked. In order to maintain the integrity of your color and to preserve the moisture in your hair, beauty experts across the globe recommend you add a hair SPF into your beach bag. If you’re not able to purchase a fancy version, or are short on time, simply mix a bit of sunscreen with some water into a spray bottle and voila.

8. Cooling Shampoos & Conditioners

Choose products with peppermint, green tea mint or aloe for a refreshing experience.

Choose products with peppermint, green tea mint or aloe for a refreshing experience.

What could be more enjoyable in the heat of the summer than experiencing the cooling power of peppermint and tea tree extracts in your shampoo? There are a number of very well made shampoos, conditioners and body washes that are rich in effervescent ingredients, opening up your pores and senses after a long day in the heat. We recommend Organix Tea Tree Mint Shampoo, which you can snag at any Whole Foods Store.

SOOTHING DRY SKIN

Dry, wintery weather takes a beating out on your skin, leaving it itchy, flaky, red, and rough. Dry, dehydrated skin can show up on your face, arms, hands, legs, and body. Sometimes the worst places for cold weather skin are scaly elbows and heels.

Making a few simple changes in your daily routine can help you stay on top of drying winter skin and keep it soft, supple, and protected.
For starters, when taking a bath or shower, keep them short. Hot water strips the essential natural oils from your skin, drying it out. Limit yourself to a single 5- or 10-minute warm shower or bath. Choose a shower gel that is unscented, soap-free, gentle, or contains mild cleansing agents. These will be the least likely to exacerbate dry skin problems.
When you pop out of the shower or bath, pat your skin damp and then apply body oil or a rich emollient moisturizer right away. Your skin will absorb creamy lotions best within 5 minutes after washing and the cream will get absorbed better.
When it comes to moisturizers, read labels and look for certain ingredients. Ceramides help skin retain water and soothe dry winter skin. Dimethicone and glycerin draw water to the skin and keep it from evaporating out. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant that attracts water helping to hydrate your skin. Lanolin, mineral, and petroleum jelly are other ingredients that can be used to help skin hold on to the water absorbed during bathing or showering.
In addition to changing your daily regimen and using a fragrance-free moisturizer, here are a few more tips we want to share with you. Use a humidifier at home to keep skin hydrated during dry, winter months. Drink plenty of water and eat foods loaded with Omega-3. Essential fatty acids can be found in cold-water fish like salmon and halibut, flax, walnuts, and safflower oil. EFAs help to fortify your skin’s natural oil-retaining barriers.
The Anushka skin expert team recommends applying sunscreen on all exposed parts of your body with an SPF 30 or higher every day – even when the sun isn’t shining. One of our faves is I/S Clinical ECLIPSE SPF 50.
