This month we are focusing on MOM in the New Year!

Find ways to create a NEW YOU!  Refresh, Relax and Recuperate from the holidays!

Today's feature for helping you do so is, Physician's Center for Beauty, Louisville's Premier Medical Spa that has it all. Physician's Center for Beauty is a physician owned and managed full service medical spa located in the heart of St. Matthews. Founded in 2005, they have become a leader provider of spa services and non-invasive cosmetic procedures in the region. Dr. Sean Maguire is a dual-trained plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic surgery of the face, neck, eyes, breast and body.  b2ap3_thumbnail_drm.jpgOne side of the spa is more clinical based offering services such as facials, chemical peels, massage, exfoliating treatments and more. The other side is more surgical based. They offer everything from Cool Sculpting to breast enhancements, face lifts, tummy tucks and Botox. 

As a mom I am always looking for ways to relax and de-stress. I had a wonderful kid-free morning of "me time" when I visited Physicians Center for Beauty. I first had a complete skin analysis with Marilyn Cannon.  Marilyn has been an innovator in the health, wellness and medical spa business for over 25 years. She gave me a tour of the facility, answered questions about all of the services they provide there, and then talked to me specifically about my skin. There was a neat machine that scanned my face on both sides and then showed her on a screen various levels of acne, sun damage, wrinkles etc., I was thrilled to see that I got really good results, but still excited to learn that there are plenty of ways I can keep up the good work with my skin and ways to make sure I can maintain a youthful appearance as I start to age.  Marilyn believes that beautiful skin starts from within, with good nutrition, exercise and plenty of pure water.   However, with the wonderful medical grade products and services that Physician’s Center for Beauty offers, they can correct past damage and direct a program that will help you achieve the beautiful skin that you imagine.   Marilyn will act as your “personal trainer” for your skin.   


Next, I was shown to a very nice changing area where I put on a plush robe and slippers so I could get ready for my 75 minute Signature Facial. Once in the spa room I was treated to a deep, relaxing back massage and seaweed mud masque application. This allows your entire body to become fully open and responsive to the application of our soothing marine facial products. I was in heaven as this was applied to my tired, sore muscles. This was so welcome after my busy weeks of holiday shopping and wrapping. When the mask is applied, it starts to heat up target areas of soreness.  You can feel it bubble and soothe your skin, but it doesn't hurt at all. 

b2ap3_thumbnail_facial.jpgWhile it was doing its work, I then laid back and enjoyed a full facial.  Jill Stewart was the aesthetician performing my facial. She first spent time asking me important questions about my skin care regimen and where I was seeing certain problems. She analyzed my skin under a bright light and pointed out areas where she thought I could focus on. She exfoliated, steamed, extracted, massaged, cleansed and toned my skin. After applying a pore minimizing mask, she then gave me a wonderful leg treatment. This was just what my tired calf muscles needed after the stressful holiday season. She massaged my feet and legs, then applied a gel that had a cooling effect and wrapped them. They soaked in the peppermint goodness while she finished moisturizing my face, and then she wrapped up with a hot stone massage on my legs and upper arms, I have never had a hot stone massage but it felt wonderful. The heat coming from the cool smooth stones creates a wonderful sensation.  She massaged my arms and hands which felt great after sitting at a computer for so many days! 

I was so relaxed by the time my session was over. This would make the perfect gift for any mom or special person in your life!  Don't forget that Valentine's Day and Mother's Day will be here before you know it! 

As a mom who wants to keep my self-confidence built up I am going to be interested in one day learning more about some of their other services. I would love to b2ap3_thumbnail_cs_20150106-023122_1.jpgtry out the Gentle Waves face machine to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  With the GentleWaves Skin Fitness System, you can restore & maintain healthier, smoother, softer & better looking skin. Through the process of LED Photomodulation, GentleWaves both corrects skin appearance & helps minimize signs of aging over time.


I also plan to eventually get more info on CoolSculpting® to get rid of the stubborn baby pooch that likes to stick around even after I have been to the gym for over a year straight.  CoolSculpting® is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.  Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime.  Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing. It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.


They also offer many Laser Treatments. Lasers used at Physician’s Center for Beauty include those for:
