The new Super-Polish!

 SHELLAC Hybrid Nailcolor

The Shellac manicure is unique & revolutionary. Have you ever gotten a manicure and then reached for your keys and ruined it?  Have you ever painted your nails before bed and woken up with sheet marks in them?  Personally, we can say “yes” to all of these things, which is why we're completely in love with Shellac, the manicure that requires no drying time and lasts two weeks with no issues whatsoever.

Shellac lasts for at least 14 days without chipping, scratching, or smudging. A mirror shine with no chips or nicks is guaranteed for a full two weeks and is easily removed in about 10 minutes.

Lasting 14 days is an accomplishment all by itself but shellac does even more. Many women have noticed that their nails are stronger and healthier after using shellac. Not only does it not damage your nail but it can improve your nail health.

“Our chemists invented a modern solution to the normal polish inconveniences that frustrate women,” says CND co-founder and style director Jan Arnold. How does Shellac get around the dry time? CND created a special UV lamp that accommodates hands and feet and cures the polish as you go. (The machines are completely washed and sterilized between customers.)
Shellac application does take longer than standard nail polish and requires professional application for the best results. Shellac paints on just like a regular polish using specially formulated base coat, two layers of color, and top coat. After each coat of polish is applied, you put your hand under the timed lamp while the other hand is being painted. As soon as the manicurist is done with your nails, you can dig into your purse for your keys without any concern of smudging or chipping. They are 100 percent dry at the end of your mani or pedi
So reach into that purse and grab your keys without worry!
Removing the polish is equally innovative. Using CND’s remover wraps and acetone, the polish literally glides right off. No harsh chemicals eating at your skin. Shellac nail color is hypoallergenic and “3-Free,” which means no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP. 
Plush has the area's largest selection of Shellac colors. and our collection is always growing!

I love Shellac! I bowl in a league twice a week and my nails always look great!! No chipping. I'm also convinced that Shellac makes my nails stronger. I find that I can grow my nails long and they are not breaking when I bowl...that's amazing!
As a nurse I had long given up on growing out my nails due to the frequent handwashings. It made my nails weak and brittle.Then I discovered the Shellac nail system. Wow have my nails started to grow. They are strong and withstand hundreds of handwashing and opening many different medications. The polish looks great for 2 weeks with no chipping or peeling. I’m so happy to see beautiful feminine hands again. Thank you Shellac!

New Botulinum Toxin at Plush!

   Plush Medical Spa is pleased to report that Merz Asthetics, makers of the wrinkle-filler Radiesse, gained FDA approval in 2011 for the cosmetic use of their brand of Botulinum Toxin, XEOMIN (pronounced (ZEE-oh-min).

  Our own Dr. Amanda Bell is one of the US physicians selected by Merz to be one of the first to try Xeomin in their practice. "I'm very excited to be one of the first to offer this new neuromodulator in Alabama", says Dr. Bell. "In theory, Xeomin® is less likely to cause resistance or allergic reactions, and it's always good to have more options when treating patients." This now brings the number of neuromodulators approved for cosmetic use up to three (Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®). Dr. Bell goes on to explain that Xeomin® does not have an extra protein that the other two products have, making it potentially a great option for those who have developed some resistance to the other products over the years. When resistance develops, it is usually due to antibodies against these proteins.

  The drugs (Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®) are injected directly into the muscles through a small needle. By weakening the muscles, dynamic wrinkles disappear, as they are unable to fold the skin above them. The benefits of treatment with Xeomin usually last 3-6 months.

 Like Botox and Dysport, the other botulinum toxins offered at Plush, Xeomin was first approved for patients with neurological disorders, specifically cervical dystonia and blepharospasm.Widespread clinical use will lead to a better understanding of the practical differences between Xeomin vs. Botox, and Xeomin vs. Dysport. 
  Like other preparations of botulinum toxin A, Xeomin must carry a black box warning regarding a rare risk for spreading outside of the injection site. If this occurs, life-threatening swallowing and breathing problems may result. However, these severe side effects have not been reported in patients receiving botulinum toxins in cosmetic doses and have only been reported in people receiving much larger doses, as might occur during the treatment of those with cerebral palsy or spasticity resulting from stroke.

Now through February 2012
