At Shines & Shimmers, we use the latest state-of-the-art equipment (SPL and VPL) and offer fast, comfortable, effective treatments while keeping your budget in mind.PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is an advanced light-based technology. It works by delivering shots of light of many different wavelengths over the area being treated. With hair removal treatments light is absorbed by pigment in the hair (melanin) causing hair follicles to heat up. This results in destruction of hair follicles. Different sets of configurations are used to treat various hair and skin types and conditions. VASCULAR TREATMENTS (for diffused redness, broken capillaries and spider veins)
Different configurations to those that are utilized for hair removal are used to treat vascular conditions such as fine diffused redness, broken capillaries and spider veins. The way it works is that light is absorbed into the blood vessel and the heat damages its walls. The body then reabsorbs whats left of the vessel along with its contents and replaces it with collagen. It is sometimes possible to see results within several weeks, but may take up to 6 weeks after the treatment to appear. SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENTS (for acne, fine lines, some types of stretch marks)
Skin rejuvenation treatments combine treatments for pigmentation and mild vascular conditions. These treatments encourage the production of collagen, which in turn improves skins appearance, enhances its condition and results in a wonderfully new texture, color and radiance. These treatments are non-invasive, gentle and extremely effective. PIGMENTATION TREATMENTS (for age spots and solar damage, including freckles)
Pigmentation is usually caused by exposure to sun and Redness from blood vessels sitting too close to the surface of the skin. Solar damage responds best to IPL treatments. PAMPERING EXPERIENCES

Sclerotherapy consists of repeated injections of a solution into the veins This irritates the vein lining, causing a small, inconsequential clot in the vein. With the blood flow stopped, the vein will dry up and eventually disappear. This procedure is generally performed on the lower extremities. The solution is usually injected into the veins two or three times over a period of several weeks. Although the veins will generally begin to disappear within several weeks following treatment, it may take up to several months. This process may need to be repeated, depending on the degree of severity. These veins do not serve a purpose; leaving or removing them causes no health problem. MESOTHERAPY -> NEW (for fat reduction, body sculpting, cellulite reduction, and skin rejuvenation)
Mesotherapy has been touted as the latest breakthrough in aesthetic medicine. It is the practice of using microinjections of conventional or homeopathic medication and/or vitamins into the mesoderm or middle layer of skin to deliver healing or corrective treatment to a specific area of the body. Mesotherapy injections generally are a solution of various vitamins, minerals, enzymes, plant extracts, anesthetics, medications and amino acids. The ingredients in the solution depend on your individual treatment needs and the desired effect you want to achieve. Phosphatidylcholine is the main product for dissolving fat.
A treatment cycle could require as few as 4 and as many as 10 treatments or more, depending on the size of the area being treated and the results desired. Each individual will respond differently and with each treatment the same person can respond differently each time. This can depend on your mood, hormones and/or health. Most clients notice a difference after the first treatment. There is no down time or recovery time for this procedure. Following treatments hot showers should be avoided for 8 hrs. Treatments on the face require avoiding makeup for at least 4 hours. There usually is some bruising and burning discomfort.
