Fat Tightening, Botox, Zit Killers! Hollywood Spa Owner Dishes on Stars favorite Pre-Oscars Beauty Treatments
The Oscars are Sunday night and stars are getting ready by getting some treatments from plastic surgeons and spas.
Spa owner "Nurse Jamie" Sherill , a registered nurse... and the co-owner of Beauty Park Medical Spa in Santa Monica, California says she's been busy this week with celebrities getting treatments from Cortisone shots to remove pimples to head-to-toe instant skin tightening.
She also uses the i-Lipo which is a fat busting device that can help dissolve unseemly belly bulges, love handles and back fat.
Here are Nurse Jamie's Top Ten Pre-Oscars Beauty Treatments...
1-Baby Drop Fillers: A special 'Gucci' needle and baby drops of filler can smooth wrinkles even on the day of an event. Nurse Jamie uses a hyaluronic acid- based filler for natural, bruise-free results.
2-Head-to-Toe Instant Tightening: A 'non-surgical team' of registered nurses will tighten every inch with a radio frequency device. Nurse Jamie says: 'Instantly the skin looks incredibly taut and there is no downtime.'
3-Botox Lite: 'For a softer, more relaxed look, we inject tiny amounts of the toxin into multiple areas of the forehead,' Nurse Jamie says. 'This way, people still have full motion... without the skin looking like an accordion!'
4-Vitamin IM Injection Facial: An aesthetician tends to the skin, while a registered nurse administers an IM injection, which includes B Vitamins and Vitamin C. It's better to take them together rather than one at a time. It helps to maintain collagen and protect the skin from sun damage.
5-Zit Killer: On its own, the acclaimed 'cort shot' (cortisone injection) can shrink colossal zits with in 48 hours. As a follow up, skin is smoothed with the Near Infrared light.
6-Cue the 'Q': This is the no downtime facelift. It target redness in the skin and works wonders on the skin's texture and tone. If a star can't get in to see Jamie, she tells them to pick up a EGF Stem Cell Repair serum and Beauty Stamp which uses a similar technology.
7-Vaginal Rejuvenation: 'Before you pass judgement on this treatment, I want to tell you it is so worth it!' says Nurse Jamie. It includes front-to-back skin tightening in the bikini area and removal of ingrown hairs, skin tags and discoloration. 'I'm just saying, we do a LOT of these procedures,' she says.
8-Body Fat Tightening: 'We'll essentially redo the entire surface of their body,' says Jamie, who uses radio frequency to tighten loose skin. Also in demand is i-Lipo, a fat-busting device that targets belly bulges and love handles.
9-Electric Facials: This facial uses different types of current to boost radiance, enhance lymphatic drainage, kill acne bacteria, wipe out dark circles, and even spark cellular repair.
10-Bacteria-Busting Facials: Facials with extractions can trigger more blemishes than they treat. Jamie's team applies gauze dipped in liquid nitrogen to kill bacterial and sooth the skin.
That all seems like a lot to go through in the name of beauty, especially number seven! What do you think? Have you ever had any of Nurse Jamie's beauty treatments or is there one you would like to try? Leave your comments below and enjoy the Oscars.
