Self-care matters

If you’re a caregiver, you know that it’s often a round-the-clock job, day in and day out.

You also know that when it comes to caring, you put yourself last on the list. Caregivers need a chance to step back, breathe and recharge. It’s critical for providing the best care to your loved ones.

November is National Caregivers Month, so it’s time for you to treat yourself!

More than 44 million Americans serve as caregivers for friends or family members according to The National Alliance for Caregiving. That’s a lot of hours and effort! It can be exhausting.

If you look in the mirror and don’t recognize the aged, tired, bleary-eyed face staring back at you, it’s time to take action.

Cosmetic treatments don’t just make you feel better immediately (although they can have that effect), many of today’s treatments can even save you time every day, taking one more item off your to-do list.

Tired of shaving your legs? (And plucking your chin?) Permanent hair removal can keep you smooth and ready for anything without the hassle or maintenance of shaving or even waxing.

BBL (or Broadband Light) hair removal is fast, effective, and comfortable. No more shaving, waxing, plucking, or harsh chemicals. When administered by a licensed professional, BBL requires no downtime after treatment, and you can resume your normal routines immediately. Unlike traditional laser permanent hair removal, BBL laser hair removal uses quick pulses of light and cooling technology for a more comfortable experience and effective treatment.

BBL is also the technology used in Photofacial treatments. Make-up is often one of the first personal care tasks that go out the window when a caregiver is facing a hectic schedule. Photofacials mean you can ditch the daily concealer stick and still feel beautiful in your bare-faced freedom.

Photofacial treatments have become one of the leading methods of treatments for women dealing with confidence-zapping skin conditions including:

· Acne

· Rosacea

· Scars

· Freckles

· Sunspots

· Age spots

· Broken blood vessels

· Uneven skin tone

Just being a caregiver can take its toll on your skin as well. Stress can contribute to wrinkles, creases and fine lines. Caregivers don’t have time for a complicated twice-a-day anti-aging routine to maintain your skin’s youthful appearance. BBL treatments can also remove wrinkles and create tighter, firmer, more youthful skin. Sciton SkinTyt, a BBL skin tightening laser, uses infrared light energy to stimulate collagen and rejuvenation below the surface of your skin, resulting in natural skin tightening and skin firming and the formation of younger-looking and firmer skin.

Once you’ve gone hair bare and your skin is smooth, even-toned, and matches your looks to the age you feel, it’s time to go out for a long lunch. Get a massage. Take a nap. Get a haircut. See a movie that you like without listening to anyone complain. Just take a day for you.
