Services Suspended for Now

Posted by on Mar 18, 2020 in eNews | Comments Off on Services Suspended for Now

Good morning,

Under the Governor’s order, our services are suspended through March 27. We hope to reopen March 28.

Across the country, this is a great opportunity for all of us to do our parts, to make a difference and flatten the curve of the CornonaVirus infection.
Nationally, if we can hunker down, and continue with our increased hygiene practices, we can turn this around and contain the spread.

We’re living through a history-making year, let’s reinforce this with our children and grandchildren, whose events are and will be canceled.
Find the ways you can make a difference, help others, and look to history for perspective.

I remember my mom telling me about rationing in WW2, and that her mom “could make a party out of nothing!”

And after a long power outage here in the 90’s, a client’s youngest asked if they could still light candles and play games.

Yesterday, with schools out and organizing for on-line-learning, my 9 year-old great nephew created a wonderful Leprechaun trap/house out of cardboard boxes at home.

I’m advancing my April 15% off Retail Sale starting today, and taking orders now.
Gift certificates are always available.

Thank you so much, take great care and hang in there, we’ll get through it together.
Sending our best thoughts,
Marguerite and Milla

LED Treatment Results and September Sale!

Posted by on Sep 8, 2019 in eNews | Comments Off on LED Treatment Results and September Sale!

September means 15% off your favorite products!
Let me know and I’ll set yours aside for pickup, or send it to you!

Jakare’s September Special is 25% off their Exfoliating Collection
(new this year)
I’ve been offering LED Light Therapy in facials since 2015, using either of 2 LED canopies over the face and neck. Results are always very effective for acne. It’s truly music to my ears when a teen looks in the mirror with surprise and says “Wow!” Most clients report their skin is tighter after a facial that includes an LED Treatment, and stays firmer longer since we added the light canopies. Headaches and sinus congestion are relieved too. Our newest canopy achieves results in only 5 min, using 1800 Deep Red LEDs, leaving more time for other treatments.

I’ve used our LightStim canopy over the top of the skull too, because it has Infrared light which penetrates deeper. A client receiving chemotherapy treatments reported “the brain fog has lifted!” Another client who sustained a concussion reported feeling his head had cleared. Recently the same client suffered a stroke (extremely lucky guy who got to the hospital in time for the  antidote treatment) came in tired and dragging, and left “feeling great.”

Additionally, we have several smaller lights from LightStim to use for sore joints, bruises, injuries and to stimulate circulation. Neuropathy can be relieved too. And recently even nerve pain from Shingles was relieved using one of our pain belts. I laid the pods next to the affected side of my client’s neck, and continued with her facial. She was amazed later at both the pain relief and reduction in swelling! LED light therapy is stimulating blood flow and ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) production, which provides energy to drive many cellular processes, including healing. Increased ATP affects skin too, stimulating collagen and elastin production.
I recently bought another pain belt for my husband to use following knee replacement surgery. Well, his Physical Therapist said that he’s exceeding all the benchmarks for progress, 4 weeks out from surgery. Very encouraging!

I share this to spread the good news about what’s possible. We have so much to offer besides skincare! The smaller lights from LightStim can be purchased for use at home, also for 15% off in September.

That’s all for now, thanks for reading, and reply back with your questions.

Have a great day!

Happy Summer Everyone!

Posted by on Jul 6, 2019 in eNews | Comments Off on Happy Summer Everyone!

Jakare’s Plant Stem Cell Serum is getting great client reviews but Karen’s takes the cake. She says it’s made the single biggest difference of any one product on her face and neck! It’s competitively priced compared to Image and GlyMed too.

1 oz pump is $10 off at $75 in June

One of my favorites for Summer skincare is Vital C ACE Serum from Image. It’s a daily multi-vitamin for your face with vitamins and minerals, plus special rose petal red wine complex from a family vineyard in Alpine Spain. It tightens, too.

1 oz dropper bottle is 15% off this month for $53 (reg $62)

Good Karma Skincare’s 4 in 1 Cream now has Astaxanthin, from a Hawaiian red sea algae, that adds photo protection to this very popular cream.  It’s always a great buy at $48

Sunscreens, both Image and Skin Ceuticals, are also 15% this month.

Jakare’s June Special is all about Vit C, and this month only is boosted with Hibiscus Oil, which has the ability to inhibit the enzyme that breaks down your skin’s elastin. Happily, this translates to firmer skin!

3 sale options are available: their Vit C Collection or a set of 2 Brighten are 20% off, or 1 Brighten and 1 C Booster are 15% off
Check out the Collection at and I have all this in stock!

Plus special Honey & Neroli Gel Cleanser in June only, for $16 ($20 reg)
Also sun-safe in Summer are the face lift treatments Milla and Mariola are doing at Yantar in Minnetonka

I just started back with their cutting-edge microcurrent treatments, hoping to be a good advertisement for them!

Special intro session is just $89

Have a great Summer, have fun and wear your hats!

New Masques, Collagen Drinks, Bone Broths and April Sale

Posted by on Apr 9, 2019 in eNews | Comments Off on New Masques, Collagen Drinks, Bone Broths and April Sale

Happy Spring Everyone!

Our Spring Sale is 15% off all skincare products through April 30, excluding devices.
Jakare’s April Special is their Refining Collection for 20% off!

The Luminous Moisturizer has organic alfalfa (very unique!) to refine and exfoliate
You can read about all 4 products in this collection by clicking on this link:

Image Skincare has new masques in 2019:

~Firming Transformation Masque, it firms, tightens, oxygenates, hydrates and exfoliates
~Purifying Probiotic Masque with yogurt, superfruit blend, clay and charcoal, it’s decongesting and very good on sensitive skin!
~Hydrogel Sheet Masques in Hydrating or Anti-Aging formulas, both with essence of mineral-rich healing waters from Japan and Jeju Island, antioxidants, amino acids and hyaluronic acid that leave your skin dewy and glowing.

Many of you get treated to these in your facial, also available to use at home too for $8 each
GlyMed Plus has a new peel and serum set, used 2-3/week at home.

I’m testing this now, so stay tuned~

Marguerite’s home remedy corner:

Many of you know the benefits of bone broth to your bones.
But did you know it can increase your skin’s collagen, elastin and firmness?

My acupuncturist says bones must be simmered for 12 hours to extract full benefits, with just a little apple cider vinegar in the pot. She’s my guru for cooking and many things. She recommended I start making bone broths to rebuild myself after a bad virus.

I also like the Vital Proteins brand of collagen drinks, available in several formulas from both marine and bovine sources.

You can find them at Lakewinds Coop, Whole Foods, and Fusion Lifespa

Thanks for reading!

New LED Light Canopy and March News

Posted by on Mar 9, 2019 in eNews | Comments Off on New LED Light Canopy and March News

Hello Everyone!

We’ve added a new LED Light Therapy canopy and are getting great results in only 5 minutes! This is achieved with a panel that has 1800 Deep Red LED lights. It gives us more time in your facial for the micro-current/myotonology machine and other special treatments.

We’re keeping our LightStim canopy, it has other LED colors we need plus InfraRed light, for increased pain relief.

Milla and I will both be getting our Advanced Practice licenses this year. We have recently attended prep classes for the exam, and are reading the required text books. It’s wonderful to be refreshing our knowledge, but I’m also learning lots of new info that wasn’t taught when I did my training. This new license requirement is raising the bar for our profession and we’ll be proud to post ours in the studio.

Clients have asked me about micro-blade service referrals. According to my friend Flo Hoxie owner of Pretty Woman in Edina, Microblading, micropigmentation and permanent makeup are synonymous terms for cosmetic tattooing. Her prices are more reasonable than what I’ve been hearing, she’s super experienced and a true artist, so I’m referring all my clients to her! Check her out at, find her on Facebook or call her at 727-858-5033

She’s the best!

I love the Jakare line, and in the last 2 years, I see so much innovation and reformulating it makes them cutting edge and very competitive.

A client who likes a stronger peel in her facials reports that the Jakare Plant Stem Cell Serum eliminates post-peel flaking. That’s impressive!

Jakare Special in March will be their Hydration Collection with 4 products (pricing to be announced after March 1)

The February Special is the Firming Collection with 3 products they call “your best nighttime ritual. Though we’re on the cusp of February’s end, if you want to take advantage of the 20% discount, let me know

Their collections are always 10% off regular pricing and when you buy 5 or more items, you get an additional 10% off

Our Annual April Sale is around the corner, 15% off all products except devices. Advanced orders are welcome and help me plan.

With continued appreciation and thanks, we wish you the very best!

Hello All,
The September Sale is 15% off retail products through this month.

These are new products that I think deserve accolades, prices don’t include sale discount:
Retexturing Activator from Skin Ceuticals ~ potent but gentle, it provides simultaneous exfoliation (with photo-safe ingredient) and hydration, in a unique serum that smooths texture and lines, increases radiance. I use it in treatments and at home. $80 for 1 oz, a little goes a long way, I really love it!

Wrinkle Remedy from GlyMed ~ their latest development in peptides and delivery system, this is like their already-great Peptide Complex on steroids, and it’s more hydrating. We use this in treatments too, with very noticeable results. $79.50 for 1 oz pump

Total Overnight Retinol Masque from Image ~ it’s “Retinol-Light” plus deep hydration, for those who don’t want a strong Retinol. I love this treatment for myself, too, very firming, tightening and brightening.
$70 for 1.7 oz jar

Jakare has 2 new products that are the culmination of long and in-depth research: Hyaluronic Acid BOOSTER and SILK Facial Moisturizer (silk peptides), both are 20% off in September. These are so new, I haven’t used them enough to testify, but if Jakare is excited, so am I!

These products feature RejuvaPlankton from the sea, rich with antioxidants; plus added peptide blend and more. This is a unique product line, competitively priced.
