    Tried any new spa/salon treatments?

    There are always new treatments cropping up at local spas and salons -- new facials, new massages, new product ingredients, etc. How do you keep track of it all? How do you decide to try a new treatment?

    Also, what new treatments have you tried lately and where? Did you like them? Did they work? Why or why not?

    Tried any new spa/salon treatments?

    Stuff I've Tried Recently At Exhale Spa (Over on Arlington Street):

    Power Facial - Uses cold laser therapy and na enzyme peel.� Really cleans out your skin in a gentle way.� Plus, the treatment specialist does an arm and hand massage for you, then fits your arms into these heated gloves with some moisturizer on them.� It's heavenly.

    Power Body Detox - This is a treatment that works your muscles with electrodes.� It feels weird and takes forever to set-up before they turn the machine on.� (They have to dry-brush your skin and cleanse it.� Then they cover it with gauze and this clay mask stuff.)� It really worked the muscles...� Not really interested in trying it again though.

    Acupuncture - Very relaxing.� Went twice a month for like 10 months.� Really helped with back problems.


    I've also tried something at Isis Spa over in Brookline Village a few times last year: colonics.� I had� a series of six bi-weekly colonics.� It was so not what I expected.� I expected it to be a bad experience, but wanted to see what all the hype was about anyway.� It was very relaxing.� And less invasive than an annual trip to the gynecologist.� I would definitely go back for it later this year.

    You know...� I am so interested in laser air removal...� But I have not yet researched where to get it done.� I'm still a "waxing" kind of girl.� Anyone else know a legitimate place to get laser hair removal?

    I'm starting hair removal at sleek tomorrow. 6 sessions 4-6 weeks apart & you can shave normally between the sessions. It was a little pricey, but i got 0% interest for 1 year and i plan to have it paid off by then anyway...

    I also have a friend who just started a couple weeks ago. she said it feels like a rubber band snapping. But trust me, that's much better to do 6 times rather than all that waxing!

    I'll let you know how it goes!
