DermaSweep in Santa Barbara

Our Santa Barbara Day Spa offers an escape from life’s everyday stress. A 60 or 90 minute day spa service (such as a massage, facial, body scrub or wrap) can be an amazing “mini stay-cation.”

This month, our featured Mini Stay-Cation idea is a DermaSweep exfoliating treatment.

DermaSweep Santa Barbara

As our skin ages, the natural exfoliation process slows down. Exfoliating treatments at Evolutions work to speed up the natural cell turnover and help you to achieve and maintain clear, healthy, youthful-looking skin.

DermaSweep MD, our most advance exfoliation treatment, uses a variable-level vacuum system to gently lift the skin as the device “sweeps away” the dead layer quickly and painlessly. Increased blood flow in the treated area encourages collagen formation, toning, and firming of the skin

Finally, Epi-Fusion delivers skin specific topical solutions deep into the skin to treat common concerns such as acne, dry skin, and hyperpigmentation.

Santa Barbara Day Spa Facial

Life is busy and we know that it is not always possible to take off for a week, a weekend, or even a day! We do know that it is important for your mind, body, and soul to take a break from every day stress, even if it is just for a small amount of time.

One way to take a timeout is to treat yourself (and your body) to 60 or 90 minute massage, facial, body scrub or wrap at our Santa Barbara Day Spa. This is the perfect “mini stay-cation” – without leaving home!

Evolutions Mini Stay-dation idea: Age-Defying Oxygen Facial

Instantly breathe life into your skin with pure and concentrated oxygen mist combined with high potency, organic serums imported from the Swiss Alps.

This amazing 90 minute facial is custom blended to meet your skin’s individual needs and is excellent for all skin types. The combination of advanced oxygen technology and ultra-premium products helps promote long term skin health while immediately leaving your skin firm, fresh, and glowing!

Before or after your treatment, be sure to relax and detoxify with a dry sauna and/or a soothing cup of tea while putting your feet up in our Tea Lounge (both complimentary with your treatment).

Santa Barbara Sauna Has Healthy Benefits

Evolutions Dry Eucalyptus Sauna in Santa Barbara

At Evolutions Day Spa in Santa Barbara, our locker rooms feature dry eucalyptus saunas for our guests to unwind prior to a treatment or to continue in their state of bliss after.

You may be surprised to hear that several recently published studies have shown that dry saunas have health benefits that go far beyond relaxation.

Here are the findings:

  • “The more often the men went to the sauna, and the longer they stayed, the lower their risk for sudden cardiac death, fatal coronary heart disease and fatal cardiovascular disease over those 20 years.” – A Finnish study that looked at dry sauna bathing and middle-aged men over a 20 year period.
  • “Regular sauna bathing is a simple, self-directed treatment that is effective for reducing headache pain intensity in chronic tension-type headaches (CTTH).” – Study by the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.
  • Sauna-induced sweating detoxifies the body and raises the heart rate (like exercise, but in a more passive way). A study of 19 and 20 year olds who used saunas saw their body mass index (BMI) drop, with the overweight and obese participants losing the most. – Study published in Scientific World Journal.

Reap the benefits of a dry sauna in Santa Barbara at Evolutions. Use of the shower and sauna facilities is complementary with any 60 minute (or longer) day spa treatment.

Get a Santa Barbara Massage for a Mental Health Boost

santa barbara massage evolutions

Feeling tired or feeling blue? We invite you to come in to Evolutions and have a massage in Santa Barbara for a mental health boost. While it is well known that massage can help many physical ailments (such as reducing pain and stiffness, relaxing muscles, and relieving headaches), it is less widely reported about how massage can benefit a person’s mental health.

The American Massage Therapy Association has published studies about the benefits of using massage to treat mental health problems in different situations. Here are the findings:

  • The use of back massage while receiving chemotherapy was shown to significantly reduce anxiety and acute fatigue.
  • An 8-week study of HIV patients who were mentally stable but diagnosed with major depressive disorder showed that the severity of depression was significantly reduced at week 4 and continued to be less at weeks 6 and 8.
  • Military veterans returning from Afghanistan or Iraq who incorporated massage therapy as part of their reintegration found that worry, anxiety, and depression (along with physical pain) was significantly reduced.
  • Nurses who received massage during work hours immediately felt relief from stress, headaches, insomnia, and other pain.

Why is massage so beneficial for a mental health boost? It is known that Swedish massage causes the body to release oxytocin. This hormone plays a role in many positive emotional aspects such as maternal instincts, love and bonding, friendship development, reduction of anxiety, and more. The mood-elevating serotonin is also released during massage.

Many consider massage a “luxury” treatment but research is revealing that it is a valuable tool for healing both the body and mind. If you’re looking to boost your mental state, boost your wellness, boost you health, and feel good – book a massage in Santa Barbara today. Contact Evolutions Medical & Day Spa at 805-695-2189 to make an appointment.

Santa Barbara Facial Testimonial

santa barbara facial evolutionsAt Evolutions Medical & Day Spa in Santa Barbara, we offer a wide variety of facials that are customizable because we don’t believe that our facial treatments should be “one-size-fits-most”. Skin condition and issues can vary greatly, so we trust the expertise of our aestheticians to modify a facial to best fit the needs of the client and their skin. With this approach, our clients usually leave with glowing skin and often do not experience any discomfort afterwards such as blotchiness, excessive peeling, or inflammation.

Facials are one of our most popular day spa treatments and we are always ready to listen to any feedback. While many clients will verbally tell us their thoughts on their facial experience, we were really pleased to find this wonderful write up on a style and fashion blog by a woman named Sophia who had been to Evolutions for our Age-Defying Oxygen Facial in December. Read her Santa Barbara facial testimonial here.
