The Portland Fashion Week Sushi Party at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness on May 18, 2017 was a hit! Nothing draws a crowd better than sushi, music and drinks. Portland Fashion Week brought together some of the friendliest people in Portland, all in the name of fashion.
Special thanks to Miki Willis/Sama for creating delicious sushi dishes, Clearly Kombucha for mixing out-of-this-world drinks, and DJ Cowboy for always keeping the party moving!
If you are looking for a gentle exfoliation regime that leaves you with a bright and radiant looking complexion we have the product for you! The Éminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant will leave your skin perfectly cleansed and gently exfoliated.
How it works: Rice powder absorbs oil while lactic and salicylic acids remove dead skin cells. The strawberries and rhubarb infuse the skin with antioxidants.
How to use: Dispense a dime sized amount of dry Dermafoliant to palm of hand and add a half teaspoon of water. Rub hands together to create a creamy paste and apply to face using circular motions, careful to avoid the delicate areas around the eye.

According to the Journal of the European Acadamy of Dermatology and Venereology, it can. In a randomized trial using three methods of soft tissue manipulation, subjects were treated with one of the following modalities of massage therapy: mechanical massage, mechanical lymphatic drainage and connective tissue manipulation. Each subject was evaluated for body composition and cellulite appearance. The results?
Methods: Sixty subjects were randomized into three groups. Group 1 (n= 20) treated with mechanical massage (MM), group 2 (n= 20) treated with manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) and group 3 (n= 20) treated with connective tissue manipulation (CTM) techniques. Subjects were evaluated by using standardized photographs, body composition analyzer (TBF 300) (body weight (BW), body mass index (BMI), fat %, fat mass (FM), fat free mass (FFM), total body water (TBW)), circumference measurement from thigh, waist-hip ratio (WHR), fat thickness measurements from abdomen, suprailium and thigh regions with skin fold caliper.
Results: All groups had an improvement in thinning of the subcutaneous fat after the treatment (P < 0.05). Thigh circumference decreased by an average of 0.5 cm in all groups and thigh fat thickness decreased 1.66 mm in Group 1, 2.21 mm in Group 2 and 3.03 mm in Group 3. Abdomen and suprailium fat thicknesses decreased 2.4 and 2.58 mm in Group 1, 1.78 and 2 mm in Group 2 and 1.23 and 0.64 mm in Group 3, respectively. The mean difference in waist-hip ratio was 0.1 cm in all groups.
Conclusion: All the treatment techniques are effective in decreasing the regional fat values of the patients with cellulites.
