"Photofacial" is a marketing term for use of Intense Pulse Light (IPL) on the face. IPL is best at removal of brown and broken blood vessels; it does so with minimal if any downtime.
IPL (Intense Photo Light) therapy is the same as BBL (Broad Band Light) therapy. These encompass a group of potential treatments which preferentially use different colored lights for different applications (from clearing acne, to getting rid of discolorations and sun spots, getting rid of small vessels and spots of redness to getting rid of hair).
Photofacial or photorejuventation refers to treatments which aim to correct sun related damage - sun spots / freckles and capillaries / redness.

Acne Facial with IPL
Acne can be a real spot of bother for people of all ages, and at some point in our lives we will all suffer from an outbreak. There are many myths about the causes of acne, most surround diet and hygiene, however neither are accurate, as acne is the skins natural reaction to a hormonal imbalance.
Acne is caused by the body’s increased production of the hormone androgen (a male hormone that is present in both men and women), which stimulates the sebaceous gland to produce more oil. The increased production of oil causes pores to become blocked and preventing the oil from coming up to the skins surface. The blocked pore causes bacteria to feed on and break down the oil, producing spots on the skin’s surface.
Treating Acne With Pulsed Laser Technology
Our acne treatment gets straight to the root of the problem. This unique treatment uses specifically selected wavelengths and optimised pulse duration and shape. The light is absorbed by haemoglobin, the red pigment in the blood, which then heats the area producing a minor reaction to the sebaceous glands. This in turn slows down the overall production of oil that leads to acne, thus dramatically reducing the chance of spots and minimizing the appearance of pores in general.
A Fast and Non-Invasive Procedure
The best results are achieved on inflammatory acne, best known as the sore, raised, red pimples. The procedure is non-invasive since the applicator only lightly touches the skin’s surface, making it relatively painless. Tolerance of pain is very individual but it has been described by many as the warm feeling one has after a day on the beach.

Combine the science of Microcurrent Technology and advanced proprietary engineering into safe, easy to use, hand-held facial toning device for a great facial In fact, the microcurrent devices used at Keep It Young are FDA-cleared, so your treatment is not only effective, but also safe.
How it Works
Microcurrent works by targeting the muscles under the skin that cause our facial skin to wrinkle and sag. As we age, our muscles become accustomed to certain expressions and tend to "stick" in these positions. A great example of this is the furrow between the eyebrows. At the same time, other muscles in our face are hardly ever used, and they begin to atrophy, which leads to sagging. An example of this is around the jaw lines, chins and necks where we tend to develop sagging or loss of definition as we get older.
Microcurrent facial toning devices send soft, gentle waves to the muscles in your face that help relax overly-tightened muscles and strengthen under-worked muscles. In essence, microcurrent facial toning "re-educates" the facial muscles and works to restore them back to their original state. When this happens the face is lifted, firmed and toned to a more youthful appearance. At the same time, the microcurrent improves circulation to your face which stimulates production of collagen, improves tone and texture, and helps eliminate fine lines.
Natural, Non-invasive Face-Lift
The results can be so dramatic and immediate that microcurrent treatments are often referred to as "non-surgical face-lifts", and known on the red carpet as "The 5 Minute Face-Lift."
With Microcurrent Technology, there are no needles, no incisions, no need for anesthesia, and no recovery time.

Professional Body Sugar Epilation is a safe, gentle and effective solution to hair extraction for women, men and children. Advanced Body Sugar Epilation offers numerous unique and diverse benefits.
The most important advantage is very fundamental: the Alexandria technique and sugar paste extracts the hair in its natural direction of growth and does so when the hair is still in the early growth stage. This eliminates breakage, unnecessary discomfort, irritation and ingrown hairs while exfoliating dry skin cells.
The result: smooth, beautiful skin, without the discomforts of other epilation techniques and possible permanent results.
Please call for pricing - as waxing and body sugaring fees are the same at Keep it Young.
Electrology is a method of permanent hair removal. This process includes sending a very small electrical current to the base of the hair follice. A very fine needle is inserted into the follicle to deliver the current. This current destroys the follicle so it cannot grow a new hair. The number of electrolysis treatments may vary with each person. Many different factors such as the quantity of hair, hair growth cycles, structure of hair, and heredity determine the best result. It is important to stay with the desired treatment program in order to achieve best results in the shortest time possible. Personal comfort is essential to knowing you have made the right decision in choosing your electrologist.
In recent years, offices have been quite loose with their use of the term “permanent hair removal.” The question is what do they mean by permanent? While lasers are FDA approved, the FDA does not allow for the marketing of technologies and services that state permanent hair removal. This is because technologies like laser hair removal provide a permanent reduction of hair growth up to 90%, give or take 10%. This means that you shouldn’t expect to permanently remove every single hair from the targeted area; however, you can expect to remove the vast majority of it. Hence, the FDA’s use of the term “permanent hair reduction” rather than permanent hair removal. The only treatment that can be considered completely permanent is Electrolysis. Because Electrolysis works follicle by follicle, it is safe to say that the individual follicle treated will be permanently removed.

Waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax combination thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair.

Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones, either as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body while they massage other parts of the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly. Starts at $80.00.
Swedish Massage uses five basic movements to increase circulation and, in theory, remove toxins from muscles. The therapist uses firm but gentle pressure, aided by oil to reduce friction, to compress and relax muscles, always stroking in the direction of the heart.
The principal moves of Swedish massage are:
Effleurage: Long gliding strokes whose pressure can vary depending on the therapist and the client.
Petrissage: A kneading movement designed to relax muscles and increase circulation by compressing and releasing muscle tissue.
Tapotement: Tapping muscles with the side of the hand, fingers or palm to release tension and cramping.
Vibration: Using hands or a machine to create rapid movement that relaxes and soothes muscles.
Friction: This is a strong, rapid, circular movement usually done to release muscle knots. Normally, friction is applied for only a short period of time to avoid an inflammatory response.
Bending and stretching movements may also be used to relax joints.
The Benefits of Swedish Massage
By far, the most popular benefit of Swedish Massage is that it is both relaxing and invigorating. It is an excellent way to help rid the body of tension and to achieve a sense of overall well-being. Starts at $75.00.
Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to the feet and hands utilizing specific thumb, finger and hand techniques without the use of oil, cream or lotion based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change in the body.
Research has shown the specific techniques of reflexology to be effective and beneficial in many ways. Creates relaxation: From the moment the reflexologists hands start their work, the relaxation begins as shown in research using EEG brain activity. Reduces pain: showing impact on individuals of all ages and health states. Improves blood flow: Separate studies show that reflexology work increases blood flow to the feet, brain, kidneys and intestines. Benefits mental health: Research demonstrates that reflexology can reduce depression and anxiety. Complements cancer care: Pain, nausea, vomiting, and/or anxiety eased for chemotherapy patients following reflexology work as shown by 16 studies from 7 countries. Eases pregnancy, delivery and post-partum effects: Women who received reflexology experienced shorter labor times and used less analgesia. In addition, reflexology showed a positive impact on postpartum depression, anxiety, urination and bowel movements. In general terms, the benefits of reflexology have to do with the reduction of stress. Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, they are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset homeostasis, the body's equilibrium.
Reflexology is a complement to standard medical care. It should not be construed as medical advice. It should not be a replacement to medical help.

Hypnosis -- or hypnotherapy -- uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness. The person's attention is so focused while in this state that anything going on around the person is temporarily blocked out or ignored. In this naturally occurring state, a person may focus his or her attention -- with the help of a trained therapist -- on specific thoughts or tasks.
How Does Hypnosis Work?
Hypnosis is usually considered an aid because the hypnotic state allows people to explore painful thoughts, feelings, and memories they might have hidden from their conscious minds. In addition, hypnosis enables people to perceive some things differently, such as blocking an awareness of pain.
Hypnosis can be used in two ways, as suggestion therapy or for patient analysis.
- Suggestion therapy: The hypnotic state makes the person better able to respond to suggestions. Therefore, hypnotherapy can help some people change certain behaviors, such as stopping smoking or nail biting. It can also help people change perceptions and sensations, and is particularly useful in treating pain.
- Analysis: This approach uses the relaxed state to find the root cause of a disorder or symptom, such as a traumatic past event that a person has hidden in his or her unconscious memory. Once the trauma is revealed, it can be addressed in psychotherapy.
What Are the Benefits of Hypnosis?
The hypnotic state allows a person to be more open to discussion and suggestion. It can improve the success of other treatments for many conditions, including:
Sleep disorders, Phobias, Fears, Depression, Stress, Post-trauma anxiety, Grief and loss
Hypnosis also might be used to help with pain control and to overcome habits, such as smoking or overeating. It also might be helpful for people whose symptoms are severe or who need crisis management.
What Are the Drawbacks of Hypnosis?
Hypnosis might not be appropriate for a person who has psychotic symptoms, such as hallucinations and delusions, or for someone who is using drugs or alcohol. It should be used for pain control only after a doctor has evaluated the person for any physical disorder that might require medical or surgical treatment. Hypnosis also may be a less effective form of therapy than other more traditional treatments, such as medication, for psychiatric disorders.
Is Hypnosis Dangerous?
Hypnosis is not a dangerous procedure. It is not mind control or brainwashing. A therapist cannot make a person do something embarrassing or that the person doesn't want to do. The greatest risk, as discussed above, is that false memories can potentially be created and that it may be less effective than pursuing other, more established and traditional psychiatric treatments.
Ear Candling: A special conical candle is inserted into the ear opening…The candle is lit and slowly begins to burn. Softened wax and fungus is drawn and burns off. You will most likely notice improved hearing, as for the wax blockage has been removed. Sinus drainage will increase after your candling session. This is beneficial and will relieve the pressure in your sinus area. Be ready to be amazed, relieved and relaxed!
45 minutes - $40.00 for both ears, $15.00 each additional candle, allow for extra time.
Spider Vein Reduction:
Spider vein reduction is a microinjection procedure that needs no pain medication or surgery. Abnormal veins are treated by sealing the vein off from the rest of the vein network in your leg, allowing the body to naturally redirect the blood flow to healthy veins.
Telangiectasias are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin, measuring between 0.5 and 1 millimeter in diameter. They can develop anywhere on the body but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, and chin. They can also develop on the legs, specifically on the upper thigh, below the knee joint, and around the ankles.
Technically speaking, spider veins, or telangiectasias, are too small to be called varicose veins. Still, like varicose veins, these thin, thread-like veins are enlarged and non-functioning. Their red, blue, or purple appearance comes from the fact that they lie very close to the surface of the skin.
All Vein Treatments must be decided on during a consultation, prices are also determined at this time.
