Graceful negotiation for the signs of aging

Summer Sensation

 

With graduation just a month away, summer is barreling right around the corner. It is during April and May that many clients (should) place some focus on their back! It’s the season of summer dresses, beach trips and the time where your skin will often experience the most exposure. Now is a fantastic time to schedule your mole mapping and skin check with your Dermatologist! Don’t put this off! In my own life, I have lost two friends under the age of 30 to melanoma that metastasized into solid brain tumors. It’s no joke. If you need a recommendation of a good Dermatologist, give me a call (or a text, or a PM, or a tweet..you get the hint). While we’re on this subject, I know that like myself you all have stumbled upon Groupons or other special offers for laser services. In no way am I saying that businesses who run these specials are not qualified, just a gentle reminder to know that the laser is not as important as who is holding that laser. If you have “brown spots” and are not sure if they are precancerous, how would a clinically untrained individual know when NOT to treat that brown spot? The body has an incredible way of providing clues when something is wrong. Let’s say there is a lesion and it fails the ABCDE’s of skin cancer and an untrained individual simply removes the “brown spot” for you to gain a laser sale. This could lead to a disastrous diagnosis down the road (stage 3, stage 4?) cancer – all because the “signal” the body used was taken away. All of this to say – be careful. If the laser technician cannot describe cancerous versus noncancerous lesions, do not let them deploy a laser on your skin!

In this last year ALONE, I have sent 19 individuals to a Dermatologist to have lesions (many that the client didn’t even know they had) checked. One, a young mother of a 3 and 5 year old. She had skin cancer. Caught early. Did I make that sale that day? No. Can I sleep at night? Yes. (Well no, but not because of this!) Do I have a client for life? Yes. She was in for laser hair removal. I promised her it could wait. She has since returned with a clean bill of health and now I’ll deliver the hair-free legs that she wants. We both win. Her babies win.

Now that my ever-so-gentle-reminder is out of the way, during the month of April and May, we’re highlighting our specialized back treatments. No two treatments are alike, because none of you are alike (even the three sets of twins I treat)!

Classic Back Aesthetic treatment. Includes cleansing, exfoliation, extractions and moisturizing treatment cream application. regular price $60 (20% off – $48)

Bacne  treatment. This Aesthetic back treatment is intended for individuals with active back acne/breakouts. Cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, light glycolic peel and skin detox treatment mask included. regular price $75 (20% off – $60)

Lightening & Brightening: This laser and IPL service includes all components of the classic back treatment – with the addition of laser and IPL for the removal of scarring, brown spots or red dots. regular price $125 (20% off – $100).

We can’t wait to hear all about your fun adventures and the cool trips you take this summer. Play it safe! Because we’re all about protected exposure at About Face, here are some tips to protect your skin during times of high exposure:

Avoid sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. (early morning or late night runs)
Whenever possible, seek shade. (Take a beach umbrella along)
Use a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 – and reapply every two hours. Reapply after every swim or profuse sweating. (If you are not sure what kind of sunscreen is best for you – ask us for a recommendation).
Wear a wide-brimmed hat and if possible, tightly woven, full-length clothing.
Don’t forget your lips! Wear lip balm with sunblock with an SPF 15 or higher.
Wear UV-protective sunglasses.
Please just stop the use of tanning beds. Melanoma is not cute.
If you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time, check the UV index. Reapply sunscreen accordingly.
Obviously, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can reflect off water, sand, concrete and snow, and can reach below the water’s surface. However, certain types of UVB light penetrate fog and clouds, so it is possible to get sunburns even on overcast days.
If you are taking an antibiotic or other medications, ask your health care professional if it may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun) OR LASER.
If there is no way to avoid over-exposure, check out clothing lines that block UV rays. VERY cool. If I had little children, you can bet they’d be sporting this line of clothing. It’s just smart.

Back to school and some new fitness in town!

It’s hard to believe that it is back to school time already. Around my house that means JROTC has already started up (today my cadet got to stuff bags for teachers as they return tomorrow). Of course it means shopping for school supplies and re-working schedules.

  At About Face Time, it means the end of an extremely successful (& popular!) Summer Skin Camp. As many of you know, we believe in seasonal skin care and as the summer fades away, we hope any signs of too much fun in the sun does as well. All of the Summer Skin Camp participants have asked for the next round of “camps” as they really don’t want this one to end.

pure barre

  Have you heard? There’s a new fitness studio opening in Murfreesboro! Pure Barre, Murfreesboro’s newest fitness center will help clients focus on the areas that we all struggle with the most – Pure Barre lifts the seat, tones the thighs and upper body, and creates long and lean muscles without bulk through small isometric movements centered around a ballet barre. Clients are attracted to Pure Barre because of the results it produces and how it makes them feel- strong, healthy and confident. Pure Barre has exploded in popularity due to its extremely effective technique, which transforms the shape of clients’ bodies in record-breaking time. 

class schedule

Pure Barre Murfreesboro Class schedule – beginning 8/18/14!

  I had a brief introduction to this fitness technique when I was out of town visiting a friend. As a physician, she felt this would be a great choice for me as I have had difficulty with heavy impact, high cardio type fitness since my lengthy hospitalization in 1996. It appears my “compromised” pancreas doesn’t play well with others and reacts to high/heavy impact rather violently. It has been advised for years that yoga and pilates is a better choice for my compromised self. The problem for me was that I thought I’d be bored. I had taken yoga before. My head was all over the place as I was creating lists, wondering about all things possible instead of embracing yoga.  I admit, I was hesitant about Barre too. I spent years in dance class, but never ballet. Tap and Baton for me- because, you guessed it – they were fast! I was only able to take a couple of classes during my visit, but did leave wishing we had one locally. Being clinically trained, I liked their technique. You may not think you’re working hard, but you’ll be lifting and toning parts of you that you forgot existed! I loved that the class was made up of all shapes, sizes and capabilities. Sure, there were others who were far more graceful looking, but it was great fun! I love the fact that in Murfreesboro, everyone will be new to it, so we’ll all be starting together! Keep me accountable, ladies! 

 Essentially, barre classes mix elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and functional training, and the moves are choreographed to motivating music! 

  Pure Barre opens in Murfreesboro on August 18th! They have a great special going on if you purchase before the opening – 6 weeks of unlimited classes for just $100.

barre goals  Since we believe in fitness and in personal goal-setting, of course we’ll sweeten the deal! If you purchase their grand opening package (and bring a copy of your receipt), we’ll pay it forward and give you a complimentary laser treatment! Now, there’s just NO excuse – 6 weeks of unlimited fun fitness & improve your skin? Nothing to lose – including money!

Dry brushing and DIY Cellulite Cream

drybrush

 

Dry brushing. Everyone does this right? I’ve been dry brushing my skin for several years, and I simply was not aware that not every woman on the planet was aware of this simple, extremely effective DIY body basic!

It is customary for blog posts to be created as a direct result of conversations inside the treatment room. Last week we were busy discussing laser hair removal and somehow the softness of the skin was brought up.  After 14 years of treating with medical lasers, it doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination that I have had hair removal – well, everywhere. We were discussing my arms specifically (which used to be really hairy with a light blonde-light brown hair mix). The client wanted to know if there was a need to treat in the future, or if there were any skin disruptions, was it soft, etc. The client asked if the softness of my skin was due to laser hair removal. Although, hair-free skin is indeed softer, my hair removal was over 10 years ago. As the conversation progressed I found myself repeating my daily routine for my own skin (body, not face). I realized that in addition to the DIY body butter I use (click here for recipe) as posted on the lovely Rachel Holder’s blog at holderingherown.com, that I only use the body butter if not treating for cellulite. As I tend to do, I was on to the next laser treatment and in a post-note sort of thought-out-loud statement added “in addition to dry skin brushing”.

body

In the world of holistic beauty treatments, dry brushing is kind of the genesis of all body skincare — it’s the one thing that people with glowy effortlessly gorgeous skin do – everyday. When I heard about this years ago, it seemed like something that I would definitely not enjoy. They wanted me to take a dry scratchy brush with no product and brush it over my already sensitive red skin? Yes, that’s correct. They insisted it would make it softer. “Right” I thought and discarded that almost as soon as I heard it. On his very next visit, the skin care professional that I trained under for over a decade asked how often I replaced my dry brush? I’m sorry, my what? My attention was then captured. Admittedly, the first few times I tried dry brushing, I didn’t spend much time on it because initially it felt a little torture-esq. However, with a recent considerable amount of weight loss and a sluggish lymphatic system I was dedicated to dry brushing daily for 30 days. I measured various body areas and took photos (scary photos!).

BENEFITS OF DRY BRUSHING

1. Removal of dry skin. Let’s face it – we spend a great deal of time on the appearance of our face, but largely ignore the skin on our body. Dry brushing is fantastic for whole body exfoliation. The good news is, that’s not all it’s good for.

2. Say good-bye to cellulite! Of course it’s easy to think that cellulite is a problem reserved for individuals who are over-weight. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. The truth is – cellulite is experienced by those with a sluggish lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is responsible for eliminating (cellular) waste products.  Hundreds of miles of lymphatic tubules transport cellular waste to your blood for elimination, (this is called lymphatic drainage). In addition to the aesthetic presentation of cellulite, if your lymphatic system is not working properly, waste and toxins will build up and can make you sick. Lymphatic congestion is a major factor leading to inflammation and disease. By stimulating your lymphatic system and helping it release toxins, dry skin brushing is a powerful detoxification aid. If you have the body type that is characterized by sluggish lymphatics, dry brushing will wake up the lymphatic system and get the lymph flowing freely. (If you are not sure of your primary body type, ask during your next visit, these body types have been studied specifically for the treatment of your skin – there are 4 primary body morphologies: Sanguine, Lymphatic, Nervous & Bilious).

3.  When you dry brush your skin, it increases circulation to your skin, which encourages the elimination of metabolic waste. If this waste is not properly eliminated, cellulite (or fatty deposits under the skin). Dry brushing will help eliminate toxins as well as more evenly distribute any fat cells.

DRY BRUSHING 101

1. Purchase a natural bristled brush (like the one pictured above).  These should not cost more than $10. It is better to have one with a handle for hard to reach spots (mine has a detachable long handle).

2. Brush your skin once a day, preferably in the morning before you shower.

3. Start at your feet and use long upward strokes  always towards your heart.

4. Be sure to go over the armpit area really well – there are many lymph nodes here.

5.  Brush over an area several times – just remember the point of dry brushing is stimulation, not irritation. It is normal for the skin to be slightly red immediately after brushing.

6. When you get above your heart, brush downwards towards your heart.

7. Dry brush at least once per day before you shower or bathe. After you shower, apply the DIY body butter from above. For an added punch – make this DIY Cellulite cream and apply after towelling dry.

DIY Cellulite Cream

What you’ll need:&

  • 3/4 cup Coconut Oil
  • 2 tablespoons of shaved Beeswax
  • 3 tablespoons of Witch Hazel
  • 10 drops Juniper oil
  • 10 drops Rosemary oil
  • 30 drops Grapefruit or peppermint oil
  • 30 drops Cypress oil

How to:

  • Mix together all of the essential oils and the witch hazel. Stir until well blended.
  • Over low heat and using a double broiler, melt the beeswax & coconut oil together. (This gives you a creamy base).
  • Once the beeswax has melted, add the oil mixture to the beeswax & coconut oil blend.
  • Pour into a resealable jar and store in a cool place. *Preferably glass. I use a wide mouth mason jar).

This homemade cellulite cream packs a powerful punch, thanks to the amazing essential oils!  Why? Well, Juniper is a diuretic and purifier while also being a great circulation stimulator. Rosemary is essential for increasing blood flow throughout the body which significantly reduces the appearance of cellulite over time and it is also great for flushing out your lymphatic system and getting rid of water retention. Cyprus and grapefruit essential oils are both effective towards increasing circulation, relieving fluid retention and flushing toxins from your skin. Witch hazel is a crucial ingredient, as it helps refine and tighten your skin.  Having a more even-toned surface will deflect some of the visual effects of cellulite.

*It is not recommended to use this DIY cellulite cream while pregnant. If you have varicose veins (not spider veins) that are rope like, do not dry brush nor use this Cellulite cream.

Treatments 

As part of Summer Skin Camp we’ve been providing cellulite treatments in the treatment room as well. Slightly different from being at home. First, we start with cleansing and exfoliation of the area to be treated as we teach you to dry brush. Next we apply the slimming solution to the body area being treated. We then wrap the area in plastic wrap and add a thermal blanket that activates the slimming treatment. After this solution is hot toweled off, our Cellulite Treatment cream is applied and clients take home a jar of their own. This service is now a part of our regular menu offering for $175. This includes any laser service for your face during the wrap (might as well not let this time go to waste!). From today through Saturday, June 28th we are offering the cellulite body wrap service (along with any laser service for the face) with take home treatment cream and dry skin brush for $125!  (This service can not be combined with other offers).

Sensational Summer Skin (camps!)

 

 

Image

 

 Hooray! Summer is finally (almost) here! School is ending, backpacks are being emptied for the last time as parents of school-aged children breath a sigh of…relief? melancholy? It happens every year – we’re all happy for less rigid routines and schedules, but sad that another school year is ending. For parents of high-schooler’s (now that I have been there, too) – the shock of having a graduate under your roof can take some adjusting to. Having a graduate and a teen who no longer goes to summer camps is even more strange! But here we are- headed towards the dog days of summer. For the first year ever – we are kicking off our version of Sensational Summer Skin camps, where we hope you’ll learn a little about our philosophy of “seasonal” skin care, as well as be ahead of the curve and ready to tackle a new school year come August 11th or so. We have worked very hard to create mini camps that should meet everyone’s needs!

  First, let’s talk about Summer and skin (care!). The best advice any professional can give you for surviving summers with higher temps and more outdoor activities is simple. 

1. Sunscreen. It’s that simple. Yes, it’s a must. Every.single.day. Find one you like and apply it 20-30 minutes before heading out the door. Then re-apply it based on the spf strength. So how do you know how long before you need to reapply? 

SPF numbers start as low as 2 and have just recently reached 70. To figure out how long you can stay in the sun with a given SPF, use this equation:

Minutes to burn without sunscreen x SPF number = maximum sun exposure time

For example, if you are like me and burn after 10 minutes of sun exposure, an SPF of 15 will allow you to be in the sun for up to 150 minutes without burning. But before you launch your calculator app and head for the beach, you should know that this equation is not always 100% accurate. People usually use far less sunscreen than the amount used in testing. In the real world, the average sun worshiper uses half the amount of sunscreen used in a testing lab, which could result in a sunburn in half the time. Personally, I use SPF 40 and have approximately 5 hours of coverage in the Tennessee sun before I need re-application. If I am at a beach, I normally re-apply after coming out of the water and no longer than 3 hour intervals during the peak of the day. So that’s the good news. There is a way to protect ourselves from harmful UVB rays (think b for burn). SPF only protects the skin against UVB rays, it does not protect the skin from harmful UVA rays. (Think a for aging!) Therefore, unless you plan to spend some time in corrective treatments, expect accumulated effects of long term sun exposure to show up on your face. For those who love visuals – check out these two photos.

This first image is a photo that shows This image shows the hidden damage being inflicted on skin as a result of overexposure to UVA rays. She can’t see them now, but they are there, just waiting to surface as the skin thins with the natural aging process.


The second photo that recently spoke volumes to me is the photo above of a 69 year old truck driver with markedly worse damage on the left side from repeated exposure to UVA rays through the driver’s side window. The dermatologist who saw him believed the age of his skin on the left was that similar to an 86 year old.

2. Hydration. Yes, your skin needs it (as does the rest of you!). Water is cheap and yet, I am still amazed at the number of clients who resort to expensive skin creams and treatments versus just adding water! Yes it’s true- 50% of your weight in ounces is what you should take in (minimally). If you weigh 140lbs, that’s 70 ounces of water each day. For more activity in higher temps or sun bathing, increase the number of ounces. Your skin’s appearance will reward you!

 There you have it – my best summer time skin care advice.  More than likely what you’ve been waiting for is this years much anticipated Sensational Summer Skin Specials (think of them as mini-summer camps for skin).

All camps are available for implementation now (5/27/14 and will end on 8/9/14). 

Sensational Summer Skin Camp #1. This camp is designed for teens and college-aged students with problematic skin. This 10 week camp includes 5 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart. During each treatment the skin will be double cleansed, pH balanced, exfoliated, any necessary extractions performed and a customized to skin condition chemical peel treatment completed. Average visit length 45 minutes. First visit, expect slightly longer for intake (approximately 1 hour).

Two payment options: 1. Pay in full at the beginning of camp. $200. This includes a full-size at home cleanser ( average retail value $30) that is at the discretion of the technician’s choice and based upon the condition of skin and goals of treatment. Total savings $80

                                      2.  Pay as you go. $50 each for visits 1-4, 5th visit FREE. Total savings $50, does not include take-home cleanser.

Sensational Summer Skin Camp #2. This camp is designed for more mature skin or problematic skin in adults. This 10 week skin camp will consist of 5 bi-weekly treatments, starting with an express facial and chemical peel, followed by 3 laser genesis treatments for the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size and excess oil AND 3 IPL treatments to remove any age spots or redness from scarring and ending with a facial and chemical peel the last week of camp. This is an excellent package for those who would like to put their best face forward by Fall!

Two payment options: 1. Pay in full at the beginning of camp. $325. This includes a full-size at home cleanser (average retail value $30) that is at the discretion of the technician’s choice and based upon the condition of skin and goals of treatment. Total savings $105 + value of babysitting if needed.

                                   2.  Pay as you go. $115 each for visits 1-3. 4th and 5th visit FREE. Total savings $55 + value of babysitting if needed, does not include take-home cleanser.

I know what you’re thinking…this can’t get any better, right? Oh – we listened all through the school-year and we heard all about your babysitting woes! SO, if you have children ages 6 weeks – 12 years at home and you have a need for babysitting, we will provide that during your treatment, too FREE. Our babysitters are over the age of 18, CPR and first aid trained and have certified background checks. All babysitting is provided on site in a rec room adjacent to your treatment room (but we promise to drown out any kid silliness noise with spa music). Babysitting will take place for your children only (I mean, you can’t bring the neighborhood gang!), and is only available to those who book on Monday’s or Tuesday’s. (Please add a comment to your online appointment as to first names and ages of children coming for free activities/babysitting). 

Sensational Summer Skin Camp #3. We know the last offer is hard to beat! However, we believe we have accomplished this with our third and final summer skin camp! This camp is designed for adults over age 21 who not only need, but truly deserve the extra attention and pampering. Not only have we worked out a fantastic treatment schedule – we have thought of extra’s and are including them for FREE. Husbands and significant others – pay attention to this “camp”.

Here’s the summer camp 3 schedule:

1. Schedule this 1.00 hour visit anytime between 5/28-6/14/14. Deep pore cleansing facial with a customized chemical peel. This treatment also includes a complimentary neck lift/collagen mask. (Retail value of service $65) Pick up your camp goodie-bag, filled with extra’s and FREEBIE’s, detailed below.

2. Schedule this 1.50 hour visit anytime between 6/15-6/28/14. Cellulite treatment. This spot treatment includes your choice of problem area (abdomen, thighs, arms). This treatment starts with exfoliation of the area and “skin brushing” to get the lymphatic system moving! Treatment will be applied and the area wrapped and warmed for the next hour. Treatment will be removed at the end of the hour and a cellulite firming cream applied to the area. You’ll also leave this appointment with a take home cellulite cream to apply until it is gone. Of course, there’s no sense in wasting the hour just being wrapped! Might as well treat your skin to a “day at the beach, minus the UVA/UVB rays” laser service – laser genesis. You’ll be wrapped toasty and regenerating skill cells all at the same time!  (Retail value of service $175, cellulite cream – $48, total retail value – $223).

3. Schedule this 1.25 hour visit anytime between 6/29 – 7/5/14. The knees, legs and feet have this one. Have loose skin around your knees? We’ll tighten it. Have any problems with toenail discoloration or fungus? We’ll treat that too. If you do not have any toenail issues to treat, we’ll be pampering your feet with an aromatherapy foot treatment. Almost forgot the legs – spider veins? We’ll treat them this visit too!  (Retail value of service $150).

4. Schedule this 1.00 hour visit anytime between 7/6 – 7/19/14.  The brown spots and/or any redness – either diffuse or rosacea take the stage for this visit. During this visit we’ll treat any brown spot or red spot was can find with both laser genesis and IPL! (Retail value of service $100). OR Full body exfoliation service. Yes, that’s right – we’ll start at your head and end at your toes with our full body exfoliation service. All body parts are modestly draped as we keep you warm on the table. At the conclusion of this service, you’ll be slathered in our body butter that everyone raves about (and then take home your own supply of body butter!).  (Retail value of service $100, retail value of body butter – $27).  

5. Schedule this 1.25 hour visit anytime between 7/20-8/9/14. We’re making it all about the face again! We’ll start with double cleansing, pH balancing & exfoliation. We’ll then treat with laser genesis and IPL if needed to fine tune the skin before we end the treatment with a customized facial mask.  (Retail value of service $100).

Now that’s a summer camp, I’d like to attend! No mosquito bites, no being shipped off to a working “farm church camp” by your mother with your cousin, surely to die at the castle? (oh, that may have just been MY experience in upstate NY). What pampering skin care camp would be complete without some goodie bag FREEBIES? Here they are:

With the purchase of this complete package, each happy camper will receive the following FREEBIE’S (complete retail value of freebie’s = $168.00)

1. A gift certificate for a 90-minute introductory float at Float Nashville!

Float Nashville

I was introduced to the concept of “floating” by a beautiful soul who this world lost way too soon, at the age of 31. An amazing person and avid surfer, “Dr. Gage” talked about floating all the time. At the time, the closest float tanks to Nashville were located in NC. We never got the chance to go. Shortly after Dr. Gage’s passing, Float Nashville opened. Of course, I was going. Admittedly, I alternated between crying and laughing during my first 90 minute float and good talk with Dr. Gage. To learn more about floating, visit their website: http://www.floatnashville.com/. Be sure to check out the “float” tab that has great info and video’s too! You’ll find the owners not only extremely knowledgeable, but amazing people as well! I’ll let the professionals explain about the amazing healing abilities of float tanks/sensory deprivation – but suffice it to say – I’ve not only done my research, I’ve floated a few times too. Each visit brings more improved results. I strongly recommend this for runners, cross-fit enthusiasts, body builders, for those with chronic pain, or medical conditions such as arthritis, scoliosis and fibromyalgia. I like to equate the benefits with a whole weeks worth of sleep for myself personally, as a chronic insomniac. Value of this free gift – $69. Must be used no later than 8/9/14.

2. Sample/trial sizes of:

Revision Skincare’s Intellishade – sunscreen, moisturizer and tinted base make-up all in one. One of my favorite products! 

Physiodermie’s Bio-gommage. My go to, gotta have it exfoliator.

Travel size Redken Shampoo and Conditioner.

2 ounces of Epicurean’s grape seed oil (the only cleanser and moisturizer you’ll ever need!

3. $10 gift certificate to Staples

4. $20 gift certificate to a local hair salon of your choice. We intended this as a scalp-massage, blow dry and style add-on!

5. One bottle of your favorite color nail polish (that also happens to support our favorite childhood cancer non-profit.

6. Gift certificate for two movies at a local movie theater.

7. Gift certificate valued at $25 at our local new favorite place to lunch: Peter D’s. Visit their website (www.thepeterds.com) and download their menu. There are no bad choices! Now all you have to do is figure out who to take!

Two payment options:

1. One payment due before first service is scheduled: $550 (retail value of all services $665, retail value of all freebies = $168, total retail value = $833). Total savings of $283, plus the value of free babysitting if needed/used!

2. Three payments each of $215. Payments due dates: before first service is scheduled, then 6/15 & 6/29. Freebie goodie bag will be given on date of final payment. Total savings of $188, plus the value of free babysitting if needed/used!

 

Of course, we ran this by our panel of long time clients and we knew they’d have questions. So, before you ask – here’s the answers:

Q: Can any of the Summer camps be shared between friends?

A: Yes. Summer camp 1 and 2 may be shared with no problems and no price changes. The only caveat is one payment method only and the details of how the services are divided up remains between the purchaser and sharee’s. (we will ask for a signed sharing agreement). Summer camp 3 may ALSO BE SHARED, however only one FREEBIE bag will be given and shared as you see fit amongst your group. If the others you share with would also like a FREEBIE bag, there is an up-charge of $50 per additional person as the items have to be purchased.

Q: Do both Summer camps 2 and 3 include free babysitting?

A: Yes, as long as services are scheduled on Monday or Tuesday.

*None of the above specials/offers can be combined with other discounts or pre-purchased services. 

Have a great healthy and safe Summer ~ Lori
