Sun Protection Products Available at Evolutions

Wearing sunscreen daily is one of the best ways to ward off sun damage which includes fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation (also referred to as sun spots, brown spots, or “liver” spots). There is a misconception that you cannot get burned in the winter or on cloudy days, but that is simply not true. UVA and UVB – ultraviolet rays – are strong throughout the year. UVA rays accelerate aging by penetrating your skin and promoting collagen breakdown. This action also increases the risk of skin cancer. UVB rays are the ones that cause a sunburn.

We recommend everyone to include sunscreen application as part of their daily skin care routine. Gone are the days where we have to apply white, sticky drugstore sunscreen to our faces. Now there are sunscreens made by reputable medical grade skincare companies that provide sun protection and additional benefits for all skin types and sensitivities.

These are the sunscreens we currently carry at Evolutions.

– – – – –

Thank you for your support over the last 12 years and for helping us become the largest medical & day spa in Santa Barbara!

We invite you to help us celebrate at our Anniversary Open House

– – – – –

Wednesday, January 31st
3:00 – 7:00 pm

  • Discounts on Services & Products (Up to 25% off select series, 15% off all products)

  • Free Mineral Make-up Application
  • Complimentary Mini-Treatments and Mini-Massages
  • Interactive education on your skin

A special note: 

Many of you are aware that Carie Baker, one of our aestheticians, had her house torn apart and swept away in the Montecito mudslides. She was inside with her 12 year old twin daughters, Summer and Sawyer, and her step-daughter, Morgan. Summer and Carie were rescued and are currently in the hospital with significant injuries. Tragically, Sawyer and Morgan did not make it.

Carie is a hardworking single mom and a wonderful employee. In one terrible night she lost her home, her car, all of her possessions, and two of her daughters. She has months of healing and rehabilitation ahead of her.

Many clients who heard what happened have already called the spa to ask how they can help. Though nothing can replace what she has lost, a GoFundMe page has been set up to help Carie in her recovery. You may donate through the link below. If you prefer, you may also give a “tip” directly to Carie through Evolutions. Just call us or come in and one of the Spa Coordinators can help you to do that.

Finally, at our 12th Anniversary Event, we are planning to donate 10% of all of our service/package sales that day to Carie, so it is a great time to pre-purchase any service(s) you are interested in having at Evolutions.

We Look Forward To Seeing You At This Great Event!

Cellfina Cellulite Treatment One-Year Guarantee

Got cellulite? Want to get rid of it?

Cellfina is a one-time cellulite treatment that is clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for 2+ years.

Does Cellfina really work? 

Yes! It works because it 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.

How is a Cellfina treatment done?

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

How soon will I see improvement?

Results can be seen in as little as 3 days. In a Cellfina patient study:

  • 85% of patients were satisfied 3 months post-treatment
  • 94% were satisfied 1 year post-treatment
  • 96% were satisfied 2 years post-treatment 

How long is the Cellfina procedure?

A treatment for the buttocks and thighs will be about 1 hour.

Are there side effects?

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

The Cellfina One-Year Guarantee 

If you are interested in getting rid of your cellulite, there is no better time than now! The manufacturer of Cellfina is so confident that you will see REAL results with a single Cellfina procedure that they are backing it with a one-year guarantee. If your treated cellulite returns within a year of treatment, the CYA (Cellfina Yearlong Assurance) Guarantee will cover your re-treatment at no cost to you. (You must register for the CYA Guarantee within 30 days of treatment to qualify for the guarantee.)

Schedule a Cellfina consultation today! 

Call us at (805) 695-2160 today to see if a Cellfina cellulite treatment is right for you.
