Pamper Yourself with Massage Therapy

Are you feeling tired, achy, slothful, just out of it?  Come see us, let one of our LMT’s work out your kinks.  If you haven’t ever experienced a massage at Esthetics by P Brown, then it’s time for you to schedule one.

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is a treatment where a trained professional (Licensed Massage Therapist – LMT) manipulates the muscles in your body to helps relieve pain, heal injuries and mainly helps you relax.  

Our LMTs help knead out knots, improve circulation, reduce other stress points in the body, and (literally)help the body relax. 

What Should I Expect During a Massage Session?

When the session starts, you can get as comfortable as you’d like and we make sure you’re covered by a sheet draping along where needed.   Our LMT’s are trained professionals and if you choose to undress, it usually makes it a better, more effective appointment because sometimes undergarments can get in the way of the LMT getting to certain pressure points or making the long strokes in your muscles.  

Pressure is often added to help reduce pain in the body.  Frequently our LMT’s will lubricate your skin with massage oil/lotion and add massage strokes to warm and work the muscles so they can help release the tension which allows for the LMT to give a deeper tissue massage. Depending on how tight your muscles are, there may be a little discomfort as the LMT works on the muscle, but overall, it should be a relaxing treatment.  And if you happen to feel pain, please speak up and inform the LMT.

Following the massage, you’ll want to drink a lot of water to continue to flush toxins.  You may want to get a massage more frequently than once a year, if possible, you’ll want to get a massage every 4-6 weeks and it would definitely benefit you to make it a part of your long-term wellness routine.  Getting your muscles loosened frequently may help reduce injury.  

At Esthetics by P Brown, you have the option of scheduling your massage in as small as 30 minutes or up to 120 minutes.  The longer the massage, the longer the LMT has to work out the tension in your body. 

I hope this was helpful.  For more information about our services or if you would like to schedule an appointment, please feel free to schedule with us on our website: www.estheticsbypbrown.com.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (615) 884 – 6744 or email us at estheticsbypbrown@yahoo.com.

The Ultimate Facial for Your Skin

People visit day spas for various reasons.  When you visit Esthetics by P Brown, our aim is for you to experience pampering at its’ best.  Our foundation for skincare is based off the Lancer model and we have customized our methods to meet the needs of those with ethnic skin because that’s our specialty.  As you entrust us with your skincare needs, we join you (each step of the way) on your skincare journey.

It’s important for you to know that all of our facials start with the Organic Refresh Facial and then clients can add-on as needed.  The Organic Refresh Facial is designed simply to be a maintenance facial – for the clients without hyperpigmentation, or severe acne, or for clients who may have hormonal acne (one or two breakouts during her cycle), and for clients who are just happy with their skin as it is.  The Organic Refresh Facial will hydrate, treat, nourish, and restore your pH levels, it also allows us to assess your skin and ensure you’re using the best products for your skin.   This service usually runs 30 – 45 minutes.   

WHY GET A FACIAL?    

A facial by an esthetician is one of the best ways to care for your skin.  Here at Esthetics by P Brown, we use a 3 step method that has proven the greatest success for our client’s skin. 

Step 1:  Exfoliate

Exfoliation polishes the skin and removes any debris.  This is an important step because it helps remove dead skin cells thus leaving your skin looking vibrant and hydrated.

Step 2: Cleanse 

Cleansing is the act of gently removing the impurities, so your skin looks and feels healthier.  

Step 3: Hydrate 

One of the biggest threats to the aging process is a lack of hydration to the skin.  Cells can lack the amount of oil they need (dry skin) or the amount of water they need (dehydrated skin), so it causes the cells to struggle to complete the cellular turnover process.  

Now, at Esthetics by P Brown since we focus on ethnic skin care, we take it 3 steps further.  While following those steps we have to ensure that your ingredients nourish and rebuild the skin so that they’re not over-treating or over-stripping, and not rebuilding it back up.  

WHAT ARE SOME BENEFITS OF A FACIAL? 

There are many benefits to a facial, I won’t name them all, but here are a few.  Facials increase circulation, help improve the skins ability to remain hydrated, help fight against free radicals and the aging process and allows for the renewal of skin cells. 

WHAT IS A RESET FACIAL?

A Reset Facial is an Organic Refresh Facial that is designed for our clients who have traveled somewhere with another eco system.  For example, if you’re from Tennessee and you travel to Arizona or Las Vegas, or California, we’ll do a reset facial and it will reset your pH levels after your trip.  We’ve been seeing that facial needed more and more for people who are skincare junkies, and they’re just out there trying stuff from YouTube and it’s throwing off their pH levels and inflaming their skin, then we’ll reset their levels.  This facial is usually 15-20 minutes.  

WHAT IS A MINI FACIAL?

The Mini Facial is for people who are on a time-crunch.  You’ll come in, we’ll exfoliate your skin and then do a quick cleanse and hydrate with a moisturizer.  You won’t receive a mask or extractions.  We’re literally looking at removing any buildup, cleansing the skin thoroughly, and hydrating the skin.  This is a 10 minute facial.  

HOW DO I SCHEDULE A FACIAL?

Let’s say you need corrective skincare, you’ll visit the website and hit the button that says, “Book Today” when the services appear, select Facials, then select the Organic Refresh Facial.  From that screen, you should be able to go into add-ons.  That’s where you let us know what your issues are.  Maybe it’s Hyperpigmentation, Acne Breakouts, Milia, or whatever your skin condition is, you’ll want to select the add-on, so we can customize your facial needs.  From there depending on what you select as an issue is how the professional will determine what needs to be applied during the service.

We understand that sometimes, clients aren’t sure of what they need.  Not to worry, we’ll do a consultation before the service and ask the proper questions to make the process flow more smoothly.  In which case you’ll want to go ahead and schedule the Organic Refresh Facial.   

Our Organic Refresh Facials do more than give you a superficial cleanse, they give your skin a deep cleanse and have you leaving the spa radiantly glowing.  Men, this extravagance is not only for women, men benefit heavily from spending time in the facial room.

Release Stress and Anxiety through Energy Work

When my clients come in with various mental, emotional or physical distresses we’ve found that Energy Treatments help bring them back in balance.  

Crystal Facials and Reiki Energy Balancing Treatments  


Crystal Facials

We added Crystal Facials to our services a while ago, but recently I’ve been getting new clients and a few regulars requesting these Facials more frequently.   I’m not sure if they’ve heard about celebrities who believe in the benefits of crystals or if they’re just curious, but my appointments for Crystal Facials have increased greatly. 

For those who are not as familiar with Energy Work, crystals are used for healing. They allow positive energy to flow into the body thus causing the negative energy (and all its attachments) to leave the body. The after effect helps the body feel relaxed, restored, and revived. 

Just like everybody’s needs are different, everyone’s Crystal Facial is different.  For each facial, I develop a customized formula to meet each client’s need.  My intention is to restore balance, energy, and glow and from the feedback we’ve been receiving, clients leave saying they feel relieved, refreshed, and rejuvenated.

Balance Your Emotions with Reiki

Reiki Energy Treatment

Another way we provide energy work is through Reiki, a holistic energy treatment that aids in relaxation and stress reduction.  Reiki helps reduce the flow of negative energy surrounding the body and when pain is connected to that negative energy, Reiki may also remove the pain.  Reiki allows you to relax and release negative energies that have attached themselves to you through either your environment, or your interactions with others, or even from your intake (what you watch through media, what you listen to – books, music, podcasts, etc., and your own thoughts).  Most clients leave feeling lighter, relaxed, and pain free.  

What happens during a Reiki Session?

  • The Reiki session is held in a room where the environment is soothing and calm.  
  • The client lays comfortably, fully clothed (shoes removed).  
  • The Energy Treatment process is explained in detail. (The treatment will be centered around the basic 7 chakras and everyone experiences different feelings: some feel heat, some feel a cooling sensation, some feel a tingling sensation, etc.). 
  • The client will be lead through a breathing exercise to help him/her fully relax. 
  • When the session begins, the specialist holds her hands lightly over the energy centers of the client’s body for approximately 1-2 minutes, if blockages are discovered, the specialist holds her hand over the blocked energy until it dissipates.  
  • At the end of the session, the specialist and client discuss the blockages that were discovered. 
  • The client is urged to sit up when he/she feels ready and ask any additional questions.
  • The client is urged to remain hydrated throughout the day because his/her body will continue to flush toxins just as the body would if he/she experienced a massage.  The reasoning is because just as a masseuse works out the knots in a person’s muscles, Reiki works out the knots in a person’s energy.

It’s a positive experience… we’d love to see you…

4 Ways to Detox and Rejuvenate

Our body is fully equipped to detoxify itself without supplements or special diets, however there are many ways to enhance the detoxification system and at Esthetics by P Brown, we offer these  four suggestions.

BODY WRAP

Benefits of a Body Wrap

It flushes toxins, flushes a buildup of caffeine, it helps deposit minerals into the skin.  

Process:  We take gauze wrap and soak it in an herbal solution, bentonite clay or china clay mix (depending on the client’s skin and what delivery method is the best to deliver the herbs) and then wrap the gauze around the selected body part – if partial wrap.   If full wrap the body is wrapped from the shoulder to the ankle.  We then have the client sit in a detox blanket (on low heat) and which allows the body to absorb the herbal solution. 

YONI STEAM

Potential Yoni Steam Benefits

PMS, heavy bleeding, severe cramping, uterine fibroids, irregular or absent menstrual cycles, vaginal dryness, PCOS, hormone imbalances, menopause, yeast infections, bladder infections, toning, moistening, removing odors, detoxifying and removing toxins from the body… and so much more. (This is not an exhaustive list) 

Process: The Yoni (vaginal) detox is another form of self-care in the holistic process. When done properly, it resets her pH.  Mayan and Asian women have been steaming their Yonis as a form of herbal hydrotherapy for centuries. Yoni steaming involves steeping herbs and then sitting over them, thus allowing the steam (from the herbs) to penetrate her Yoni. This gentle technique can be quite healing for women.  Our herbs used for the Yoni Steams are Certified, Organic, Living, and have their own individual health benefits

INFRARED SAUNA

Potential Infrared Sauna Benefits 

Increases blood circulation, stimulates sweat glands (which helps the body release toxins and heavy metals through sweat) helps relieve muscle aches and pains, eases sprains and stiffness, aids in relaxation and invigoration, helps reduce stress and anxiety, sheds dead skin cells. May also help with reducing cellulite and increasing metabolism. (This is not an exhaustive list.) 

We invite you to come into ours and experience the healing that awaits you.  Our infrared sauna is nothing like those gym saunas.  Our Infrared Sauna seats two comfortably and is designed to restore health and wellness into your body. The heat you’ll experience in the sauna is similar to the heat of the sun, minus the ultra-violet rays.  

HERBAL STEAM SAUNA

The Herbal Steam Sauna is a step above the Infrared Sauna.  It occurs in either a steam unit or in the Infrared Sauna.  The difference is that essential oils are added to the sauna experience to aid in detoxification and relaxation. The client has to option of sitting in a Sauna Unit or in the Infrared Sauna.  

Regardless of the detox service you choose, our aim is to make your experience relaxing and rejuvenating.  You’ll definitely want to keep your body hydrated during any of these services because your body will be flushing toxins continually.

Cavi-Lipo Liquifies Your Cellulite

Our Cavi-Lipo Aids in Body Sculpting and Contouring

The Cavi-Lipo service is a non-invasive, fat reduction system, that helps clients remove cellulite in those stubborn, unwanted areas, by breaking down fat cells and liquefying them.    

When clients schedule a Cavi-lipo treatment, it’s generally because they are looking to physically flush their body fat percentage before building their muscle percentage.  The Cavi-lipo treatment reduces the adipose tissue pockets in whatever area they consider an issue:

  • If it’s thighs, usually clients desire the treatment to be more concentrated on slimming the thighs, so their butt pops and they get rid of cellulite.  
  • If it’s the tummy area, that’s where we hold our cortisol and that makes the fat more stubborn.  

What’s Discussed in the Cavi-Lipo Body Consultation?

Before you schedule an appointment, you’ll need to schedule a body consultation where we’ll review the treatment steps:

  1. We start with the RF therapy (high frequency – that ringing the client hears, but the technician doesn’t).  It ruptures  the fat tissue and burst the adipose tissue into smaller particles.
  2. We then come behind it with the high frequency therapy, (keep in mind, these steps are in conjunction with the Cavi-lipo and not part of the Cavi-lipo) the high frequency therapy will liquify the fat and start to flow to the lymphatic system.
  3. Then when we get to the Cavi-lipo, all those cool lasers, do is (they are considered cool lasers because they don’t cut into the skin) make the process of it flowing through the lymphatic drainage system and out your urethra – easier.  This way, you flush more fat because as it sits, it will reaccumulate and swell in the body – so you need to flush that out as quickly and as soon as possible. 

How long before I see results?

We have some clients who come in expecting us to have a magic pill, of course that’s not how this works.  With the Cavi-Lipo, you’ll generally see 1-2 inches lost, but it usually takes a series of 6 – 9 treatments before you see about 5 lbs. gone.  With the treatments in  30 – 45 minute sessions, it limits the amount of fat that can be ruptured.  Then you still need the kinetic energy and to maximize the results, you need your body to stay in motion.

However, if you have really chunky cellulite which is pinched adipose tissue between connective tissue, the Cavi-lipo will smooth that out and usually after about the 6th treatment, it’ll stay smooth.  And if you have the treatments and then you’re in the gym, and you’re reducing your adipose tissue, at the same time we’re flushing your adipose tissue, you may only need 3 treatments and you’ll see it.  

Our Cavi-Lipo Services, you can schedule 3, 6, or 9 Treatments:

Cavi Tummy Reduction

Cavi  Butt Reduction

Cavi Back Treatment

*Some people choose their arms because they don’t like the “bat wings,” but even with the bat wings, the results are dependent on if there’s fat in there, or if it’s just loose skin.  

What you need depends entirely on the results you are seeking and your body fat percentage. For example, if you’re smaller and within the 14-24% body fat range, you should see results quickly, within 3 treatments and you’ll be chiseled and loving it. However,  if you’re in the 30 – 46 %  or higher body fat range, you’ll need more treatments to see and feel the results.  You also need to pair it with cardio at home, the saunas that we do, services that will help get your metabolism going to flush those fat particles quicker.

Body Treatments for Body Blemishes

As you probably know, Esthetic’s by P Brown, is a Full-service Day Spa with a menu of services for your entire body.  Some expect Day Spas to be limited to facials, massages, manicures and pedicures and while we also offer those services, if you pull up our menu, you’ll see much, much, more.  

This may not apply to you personally, but some people have blemishes on their backsides and for them, we offer body treatments: back facials, butt facials, and body peels. Now before you raise your brow and think it’s weird, some people actually have acne on the back side of their bodies. Back acne can surface for various reasons with sweat or diet among the list.

Esthetic’s by P Brown’s Body Treatments

BACK FACIAL

A relaxing treatment for both men and women that helps remove acne, pimples, zits, inflammation, dry scaly patches, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, erythema or red splotches.

BUTT FACIAL

A relaxing treatment and good cleanse to hit those hard to reach spots and help remove acne, pimples, zits, inflammation, dry scaly patches, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, erythema or red splotches. Some get a butt facial for uneven skin tone (hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation – the lack of pigment). To some, it’s considered a luxury service, but at EBPB, it’s more common than you would think.

Back and Butt Facial Procedures

For both the Back and Butt Facials, we follow the same facial procedures. The steps are below: 

  1. A light cleanse to break down the oil barriers then a heavier cleanse with a body brush
  2. Exfoliation with a sugar scrub
  3. Extractions (as needed)
  4. Clay mask to remove toxins and impurities 
  5. Hydration treatment that rehydrates the skin, resets the pH levels, and seals the skin.  (The sealant atop of the skin creates a barrier that keeps bacteria, dies, and other toxins that would easily penetrate the skin).  A sealant and a moisturizer is applied at that time.

BODY PEEL

This is a treatment for people who have scarring, acne, and hyperpigmentation.  It’s similar to a chemical peel (in the case that) we go in and cleanse the area, then use a prep for the acids so your body will absorb them quickly.  Then we lay acids so it peels or lifts up that hyperpigmented area or starts to peel away and break down scar tissue.  

Body Treatments and Cellulite Reduction

We have some people who schedule Back and Butt facials to reduce cellulite.  It’s because the treatments come with a massage component (with the brush) and heat therapy that comes with the mask, the combination of the two, helps reduce cellulite.  

So the next time you see a blemish on the backside of your body, or you notice you’ve got bacne (back acne) we want you to know that we’re here for you.  We’ll help you select the service that meets your needs.

I hope this was helpful.  For more information about our services or if you would like to schedule an appointment, please feel free to schedule with us on our website: www.estheticsbypbrown.com.  If you have any questions about skincare, please feel free to call us at (615) 884 – 6744 or email us at estheticsbypbrown@yahoo.com.

Chemical Peel for Vaginal Hyperpigmentation

Hey Tribe, this question was sent through my social media, I’m sharing in case anyone else has this question. 

QUESTION:

What can I do that is not as painful as laser treatments to remove hyperpigmentation from under my arms and my bikini area?  Is there a treatment that’s not high in cost and will it also treat ingrown hairs? 

ANSWER: YES

Most estheticians will do a variation of what we call our body peel.  This actually is something that I do (about) quarterly – because I have eczema on my body and I don’t want to look like a reptile.  

IT’S A BODY PEEL

So, yes, we do a body peel where we lay low-grade acids, like a Pumpkin Enzyme Acid, or I’ve done a Hibiscus Acid or an Apple Wine acid, something that is gentle enough to peel your intimate area but strong enough to lift up the hyperpigmentation.  We love anything that contains thorazine prohibitors, which will help prevent you from having hyperpigmentation during the healing process.  

72-HOUR WAIT

I will say, this as a disclaimer.  If you want to have relations as my grandmother would say, it is not the time within 3 days after this peel.  You don’t want to, because you are shedding, there’s nothing sexy about it.  Now, once you pass the 72-hour mark, your bikini area will look like it was poured from Jesus (so to say – smile).  Also, if you suffer from ingrown hairs, we’ve thinned out that excess ingrown hair that is kind of holding that ingrown hair in or that Folliculitis in and it’s going to slide out like pure butter.  And it’s going to even out your skin tone, those same problems happen up under your arm that will happen in the bikini area, so it’s not just let’s hold here.

PUMPKIN BENEFITS

To be clear, Glycolic Acid in my opinion is a sand blaster.  My exception to that rule, is if your Glycolic Acid comes from a natural derivative such as aloe or pumpkin.  While we love pumpkin lattes, pumpkin is the perfect enzyme to use on the bikini area, it will give you a flawless glow, even skin, reduce ingrown hairs and all jokes aside, tribe, it’s amazing!

I hope this was helpful and if it was, please leave me a comment below.  Also, please forward this post to anyone you know who would benefit from this information.

Also, if you have any questions about hyperpigmentation or any skincare questions in general, please feel free to call us at (615) 884 – 6744 or email us at estheticsbypbrown@yahoo.com.
