Pumpkin Facial and Body Treatments in Santa Barbara

Pumpkin is a wonderful treat for the skin! 

Pumpkin Facial Santa Barbara
Rich in vitamins A and C along with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), pumpkin helps to increase cell turnover, brighten, soothe and smooth the skin.

We are excited to feature two pumpkin based treatments this season!

PUMPKIN FACIAL

Similar to a Rejuvenating Facial, but utilizes the therapeutic Pumpkin Mask, which uses the power of pumpkin, antioxidants, and salicylic acid to smooth rough skin, reduce breakouts, and promote an even skin tone. The Pumpkin Facial also includes a pumpkin based toner filled with amino acids and enzymes that leaves the skin healthy and glowing.

PUMPKIN BODY GLOW

The Pumpkin Body Glow treatment starts with a pumpkin scrub – naturally rich in beta carotene and active enzymes – that renews tired skin while gently drawing out impurities and toxins.

After your therapist applies this amazing body scrub and washes it off with the seven jets of the Vichy Shower, you will receive a French Sugared Vanilla Silk and Honey body hydration.

These handmade premium natural ingredients are reminiscent of warm pumpkin pie with freshly whipped cream.  Yum!

– – – – –

Both the facial and body treatments are 60 minute services, normally priced at $120 each. 

For the month of October, each service will be $15 off!

OR

Enjoy both treatments –  the Pumpkin Facial and Body Glow –
for $200! (a $40 savings)

Cellulite Treatment by Cellfina in Santa Barbara

Evolutions is excited to offer Cellfina –  a cellulite treatment that is clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least 2 years. This is the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment.

What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is most commonly seen in the thighs and buttocks. There are connective bands woven throughout the fat and the tight bands pull down the skin, creating a puckering (or dimpling) that can be seen on the surface. Having cellulite does not mean you are overweight. If women in your family have cellulite, there is a good chance you will have it too, regardless of your weight.

How does Cellfina work?
Cellfina treats the primary structural cause of cellulite – the connective bands that are creating the puckering. A Cellfina treatment releases the tension of the connective bands. When the tension is gone, the skin bounces back and smoothes out.

Does Cellfina involve cutting to release the bands?
Cellfina uses a minimally-invasive, small needle-sized device to treat the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface. A Cellfina treatment does not involve an operating room or general anesthesia.

When will I see improvement?
Results can be seen in as little as 3 days. In a pivotal patient study:

  • 85% of the patients were satisfied 3 months post-treatment
  • 94% were satisfied 1 year post-treatment
  • 96% were satisfied 2 years post-treatment (this surpasses the patient satisfaction rate of other leading cellulite treatments)

How long is a Cellfina procedure?
A Cellfina treatment for the buttocks and thighs will be about 1 hour.

Are there side effects?
In the pivotal study, no serious adverse events were associated with Cellfina. The most common side effects included soreness, tenderness, and bruising. Most of the side effects resolved quickly.

Can I see before and after pictures of a Cellfina treatment?
Cellfina’s website has a gallery of unretouched photos that show before treatment, after 3 months, 1 year, and 2 years. Click here to see before and after Cellfina photos.

How much does Cellfina cost?
A Cellfina treatment is individualized and it is best to book a consultation to get an accurate quote.

Dr. Perkins’ Opinion on Cellfina
Dr. Perkins has reviewed the Cellfina system thoroughly. In his opinion, a Cellfina treatment may permanently improve cellulite.

Learn More about Cellfina at our Smooth Summer Skin Event on Wednesday, May 4th! 

 Call us (805) 695-2160 to book a complimentary consultation for a Cellfina treatment in Santa Barbara.
