LightStim LED light therapy

Hello Everyone! Sorry for the delay on my blog I am excited to announce I am moving! Its been a crazy period looking for new homes but I am very excited for this new chapter in my life. I also wanted to announce the winner of the $1000 off giveaway for Dr. Aaron Rollins is Michelle @grbush82 Congrats Michelle Dr. Aarons is amazing and if you do end up trying his Laser Lipo I know personally you will be thrilled! with that the Anti-Aging battle must continue and up next I have a really fun and exciting therapy I don’t think many people know about. Light Therapy!

Ok, I know you have all heard of cutting edge lasers, steams, creams, I have even touched on the magic of electro micro currents, but today I will be showcasing the healing properties of Light therapy that not only can change your skin but also add on great bonuses to any treatment you might get at the spa!

So what is light therapy and LightStim? Basically LightStim uses LED light therapy to deliver light energy in a similar way plants absorb light energy from the sun. LightStim emits UV-free, beneficial light rays that energize cells and stimulate the body’s natural process to build new proteins and regenerate cells!

By Using different wavelengths, or colors of light each LightStim is awesomely beneficial! When the light is applied directly to the skin it helps to increase collagen and we ALL need that, as well as elastin production, it reduces inflammation, speeds healing and increases circulation Oh and did I mention is can DESTROY Acne bacteria! Boom!

So how do I use it? well first  they have three different lights!


*LightStim for wrinkles

The Wrinkle LightStim uses Amber, Deep Red, Light Red and Infrared light which together emit multiple wavelengths of colored light, this is a patented Multiwave technology! See ya later crows feet!

*LightStim for Acne

This Acne light uses Red and Blue light! The Blue light Destroys acne causing bacteria and the red light reduces redness, together they clear and help prevent future breakouts I got this one for my 16 year old daughter and she LOVES it!

*LightStim for Pain

This LightStim emits light energy that reduces inflammation and increases circulation, this increased circulation accelerates your body’s healing process by delivering oxygen and naturally helps relieve pain! I will be getting this bad boy of my mom this xmas to aid in her arthritis!

and YES,  you read that right! you can actually use one of these hand held devices for the temporarily relief of arthritic, muscle and joint pain and help reduce inflammation and stiffness, help increase blood circulation, speed healing and diminish bruising!

using it is easy, you lightly press it to your face and thats it, when the timer rings you move it to another areas until you have covered all your desired areas, I find that the warmth of the light and the color is very relaxing!

Sounds amazing right? well it is, I first learned about the power of lights at Kate Somerville med spa, who offers cutting edge facials and is leading in the industry in skin care, she offers over 7 facials with these amazing lights! Most of the machines in her spa are much bigger and made for a professional setting, like these! Now I love theScreen Shot 2015-10-13 at 9.16.25 AMse but they can be expensive and I really don’t have the space in my home to have them! But I wanted the benefits of the lights because I can SEE and feel the difference after just 15 min of being under them!

This is why I wanted to write this blog and share with all the ladies and gents who want these benefits but either can’t get to a spa, can’t afford it or also want to be able to do it in the privacy of their own home!

Welcome to our own private hand held LightStims LED lights! Another great Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 9.16.03 AMfeature about these hand helds is it comes with a App for your phone, so depending on what LightStim you choose you can go on to your smartphone and time your session!Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 9.47.16 AM I love to do this at night when I’m home watching TV or when I’m talking on the phone, my smart phone reminds me to move it and I get all the benefits that spas, estheticians, dermatologists, plastic surgeons and clients have used for decades in the privacy of my own home! I also want to note that the FDA has clinically Proven that 100% participants showed improvement in their fine lines and wrinkles in just 8 weeks! THAT is awesome and something you just don’t see everyday in the land of anti-aging

The great thing is you can treat your entire face! forehead, crows feet, cheeks, nasal labial folds, jawline and even your lips! As you all know, I only blog about treatments I have tried and treatments I believe in! This is the real deal people and something I highly suggest adding to your beauty regime, it’s easy, it’s therapeutic and it’s convenient!

Please take a moment and visit  LightStim’s website here

Treatments at spas for the healing LED light therapies can end up costing tons! which is why being able to have this proven therapy at your finger tips at home that you can do everyday is truly priceless!

I am VERY excited to announce that LightStim has offered to do TWO giveaways! These retail at $250 so there will be 2 very lucky ladies! All you have to do is Follow myself and @lighStim on Instagram! Leave a comment with your name and Instagram name below and In 1 week we will do a random drawing! YOU don’t want to miss out on these ladies! best of luck and lots of happy LightStimming!






Elite Body Sculpture

Hello everyone! I am REALLY excited to blog about this next article on the one and only Dr. Aaron Rollins and his one of a kind Air Sculpt Laser Lipo! I have never had more people ask me about my experience then this and I mean men and women! So I am going to give you all the juicy details on my experience, but first lets meet the doc himself!
Dr. Aaron Rollins is the liposuction doctor to the stars, as well as, the founder of Elite Body Sculpture in Beverly Hills, Houston, Sacramento and New York. Dr. Rollins is considered a specialist in body sculpting and has performed thousands of laser liposuction procedures. Due to this, he has been featured on numerous media outlets including Good Morning America, Extra, Good Day LA as well as being featured in Europe on RTL and Nova TV.   Screen Shot 2015-09-12 at 4.18.36 PM

He is a life-long art lover who studied sculpture and to fulfill his dream of combining art and science, he eventually attended medical school.

Dr. Rollins went to medical school at the McGill University Faculty of Medicine in Montreal, Canada after completing his undergraduate studies at McGill University. He has received many awards for his distinguished work, including the I.D.E.A. Bronze Medal for medical inventions and the “Great Distinction” honor at McGill University. He is affiliated with the American College of Surgeons, American Board of Laser Surgery, American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Society of Liposuction Surgery. He is also a member of the World Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Rollins was awarded the Compassionate Doctor certification in 2013.

“Patient comfort is my main focus,” states Dr. Rollins “because we focus exclusively on laser liposuction at Elite Body Sculpture this has allowed me the ability to pioneer new techniques to increase patient comfort and maximize their results while minimizing their recovery and down time.”


Ok so now what is Air sculpt Laser Lipo exactly and why is it different then what you have seen in the past?  From their website   “AirSculpt™ Laser Liposculpture is not only a technique, it’s a philosophy. We want to be as minimally invasive as possible. The entire procedure is geared to make healing faster with less bruising and less trauma to the area being treated.

No Needle, No Scalpel, No Stitches™

That is why we use no needle (who wants a needle stick?), no scalpel, we use a device that makes a circular entry site that is 2mm (smaller than a pencil top eraser) this gives a mark similar to a freckle or natural skin blemish as it heals instead of a line and suture marks which show the world that you had surgery. No stitches – you don’t need them, which means you will not need to get them removed! We leave your entry sites open so that your swelling can drain out of your body so you heal FASTER.”

Ok so lets get down to all the nitty gritty and all the REAL details right? I am a mother of 3, I have had 3 C-sections and I also work and live in Hollywood, I work out ALL the time but even so after three C-sections there is just certain areas for ME that just wouldn’t move, yes I know there are women out there that have a 6 packs after 5 kids, I am just not one of them, I DO believe in diet and exercise and just because I got lipo it doesn’t mean I was lazy or just gave up, I continue to work out and eat healthy, however for me no matter how fit I was, I had a issue with my tummy and I ALWAYS had a issue with my chin, even when I was 19 and 108lbs, I had a double chin…it’s just where I held my fat, My Gf came to me about Dr. Aaron and it just seemed like a to good to be true situation! No needles, No scalpels, No stitches, No general anesthesia? I was in!

I showed up to the Beverly Hills office for my first appointment and consultation to sort of go over what I wanted to do, the office is stylish and beautiful and the staff friendly! Dr. Aaron is passionate about his trade and what I love is that all they do at this office is LIPO! I loved that, I loved that they focused on one procedure and truly are the BEST at it! After deciding what areas would be best for me, I made my appointment to come in.

Now, the morning of I brought my best friend Stephen to come with me, because you will need someone to drive you home, I was given a shot for pain and we went into the procedure room,Lipo I was laying on the table fully awake and with my best friend,  At first I was told I would feel sort of a knock on my skin, which I did and it did not hurt at all, then Dr. Aaron used a tool to sort of numb the area he would be working on, this did not hurt either, then the magic happens and Dr. Aaron uses his invention by lasering your fat cells which what I have been told basically heats them up until they implode and becomes liquid, the doc might be able to give you a better explanation! Now I know many of you have visions of those old Lipo wands that look HUGE and you have seen these doctors basically sticking them into peoples bodies like a Thanksgiving Day turkey, This is the magic of Dr. Aaron’s invention, HIS wand is not scary in fact when you first see it, you think THAT’S it? that little wand? it looks like the inside of a pen! This Wand Tightens the skin, and vibrates at such a fast rate he literally can sculpt your body and do it in a very controlled, smooth motion. After this he sucks out the fat and YES, you are awake and can actually watch it! you can even talk on your cell phone and pick your favorite Pandora play list! this whole procedure took about 45 min! After I was put into a Spanx sort of suit and off I went to take a picture with my 2 gallon bottle of fat! In this picture it looks like a smoothie…but that is my fat ALL the way to the top! Fat that can not and will not ever come back!

Now what did I get done? My tummy, chin and I loved it SO much I came back and had him do my thighs on my TV show Hollywood Exes on VH1! After the procedure I went and had a steak dinner for protein and as you can see Im up and able to take a picture and make fun of my jar o’ fat! The next couple days I was a little sore but nothing I couldn’t handle and I was ordered to wear my spanx for two weeks! Anyone can do that! The pictures I am posting below are my before and after shots, my chin shot everyone likes to say “well you are obviously sticking your chin in”, sadly I really wasn’t, it was that bad and aged me considerably. A31367B9-353A-4B41-86DC-0597F404C913Now maybe your double chin doesn’t bother you but mine bothered me and I was thrilled to have something done about it! LIPO2

My recovery was very easy, and I saw results quickly and as more time went on I just kept getting smaller and smaller, the little pooch above my C-scar which was somethingFullSizeRenuuder I was very insecure about was gone and I finally got to wear my favorite bikini I couldn’t wear in years! Here is a picture of me 3 days after my procedure! Yes I still had to wear the spanx but you can clearly see a HUGE difference!

Is this for everyone? I think so! If you have been struggling and or have a part of your body that bothers you, why not do something about it! Does it really work? YES! Was it worth it? I am asked often, YES! I am thrilled and over the moon with my results and more then anything I trust Dr. Aaron to help me make the proper decisions for my body, He will be the first to tell you if he thinks you truly need something or not. That is just my perspective and I don’t mind sharing it because I know a lot women and men who struggle with a particular issue and I think it’s important to not hide in shame and talk about being proactive and doing something to better yourself if you want to. I am always here to answer comments and questions.

Dr. Aaron offers an array of procedures, do you know he can literally take YOUR fat from your bum and put it in your breast as a fat transfer! smaller bootie and bigger boobies! No IMPLANTS! your own fat! Yes please! or maybe you want that horrid arm fat gone and a Brazilian bootie, he can do that too! Ladies aren’t the only ones either for men he has a 48 hour six pack procedure! I Highly suggest going to his website and looking at his Before and After photos! I was actually shocked after I was showcased on Entertainment Tonight with Dr. Aaron how many men really wanted to do something about their Dad bods!

now lets please note these are all my personal opinions and from my perspective but it is something I loved and I would do again! I always suggest taking your time and seeing if this would be best for you by doing your research and of course always speaking to your doctor!

Ok, so lets start with who is Kate Somerville? Kate is the creator and director of the renowned medi-skin clinic in Los Angeles, Kate pioneered the integration of skincare and medicine, By partnering early on with top dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons she set the foundation for the medi-spa industry, For the past 15 years her dedication to research and development has kept her at the forefront of skin wellness, Committed to innovative new products and the continuous creations of revolutionary treatments, she truly is coming out with NEW and cutting edge products monthly!  Kate Somerville is leading the pack in skin wellness!  Kate is also the inventor of The Skin Health Pyramid! Founded on scientific research and clinical tests, the Skin Health Pyramid™ was utilized to develop a synergistic line of treatments and solutions that work perfectly together. By combining the most advanced technology, cutting-edge ingredients, and time-tested botanicals, Kate Somerville has made radiant skin a reality for everyone.


The Clinic is found on the trendy and super chic Melrose Place in LA, she has over 16 treatment rooms and over two dozen service providers, ladies when you walk into this spa it is just stunning! I seriously wish my entire home was decorated in the same decor, you feel like you are escaping the energy of the city and really taking some serious “me” time, the staff  is friendly and is comprised of a medical director, nurse practitioners, Rn’s, Certified estheticians all overseen and trained by Kate herself! For me this is THE place to Renew Skin, Restore Health and Deliver Results! to Visit the clinic you can call here 1-323-655-7546 or contact them here! Skin Clinic

Kate has been so kind to offer TWO amazing must have giveaways this week but before I get into that we will be talking about the topic of my blog her one of a kind treatment “Laser Genesis!” This is a game changer gals and one you need to put into your anti aging regime!  THIS laser is my go to treatment here, I try to do this at LEAST once a month but if I find myself having a skin issue I will go in once a week for a more aggressive tune up! But first what is Laser Genesis?

Laser Genesis®
For all skin types, this gentle non-invasive laser is effective for anti-aging, rosacea, acne and scarring. By warming the skin and stimulating collagen, this painless treatment polishes the complexion, reduces redness and decreases pore size and fine lines. Recommended as a series for best results.
15–45 minutes

Now, as I am aging I am finding and please note I am fair skinned that under my eyes the skin is getting thinner and I also at times can have that crepey effect. THIS literally kills that! I am asked all the time what do I do to keep my skin looking so young and really this is the laser!


IMG_8411 I love this laser because it’s painless, it truly feels like warm raindrops on your skin and it doesn’t take long, they actually have 2 types the EXO and the EXCEL, one just covers a bit more area so it’s quicker which makes popping in on your lunch break perfect! I find this laser so relaxing that at times I can fall asleep!


When you come in for this treatment a esthetician comes in to cleanse your face and basically you get a nice mini facial! They then put some protective eyewear on and away we go…you have the option to do a full face or half, I usually just go in and have them do all around my eyes and under of course! what I love about this laser is you SEE results rather quickly and where I had fine line or crows feet after a couple treatments they are diminished! I literally can tell when I have been slacking and when I need to get in there and have another session, another great add on is her Red lights you can do right after but that will be another blog on another day! Overall I see a huge difference in skin tone, a decrease in pore size and a fine line killer! I also think for younger women to do this for preventive reasons is awesome!

Kate has so many treatments for EVERY skin type and leading industry products I could write a 100 blogs, so please look at her website, if you are dealing with acne, scarring, redness, aging, sagging skin you name it she has you covered and fairly priced!

Microcurrent Facials!

Hey ladies & maybe some gents! Thank you for all the positive feedback on this new blog and my last post! This time I am going to be talking about Microcurrent Facials! Some people swear by them and others it’s just not their thing! Being someone who loves to try anything I had my chance working with the amazing Charlene DeLory who has specialized in Microcurrent facials for decades! BUT before I get into the awesomeness that is Charlene I wanted to go over some basic questions and fun facts about Microcurrent facials and then I will tell you why I think they are something women should throw into their Anti-Aging regime!

What is a Microcurrent Facial ?

A microcurrent treatment, also known as microcurrent electrical neuromuscular stimulation, consists of gentle electric stimulation of muscles and tissue. During a microcurrent facial your skin cells as well as facial muscles will be targeted to tone and rejuvenate your face.

How Does a Microcurrent Facial Work?

Electric stimulation will make your facial muscles more taut, much like muscles in your body after a workout. This leads to a firmer skin and toned facial features. Gentle electric current is also known to increase blood circulation, production of collagen and elastin, and glycosaminoglycans. Glyco-what? Glycosaminoglycans, also known as “GAGs,” are large carbohydrates that encompasses proteins like collagen and elastin, and are responsible for a skin elasticity and firmness. On top of that electric stimulation has been shown to increase cell regeneration.
