Nora Bode Oxyjet Trearments

Elle Macpherson swears by it. Demi Moore raves about it and Jennifer Aniston uses it to breathe new life into her skin. Now the latest 'Nora Bode OXYjet' facial which is adored by the Hollywood A-list is now coming to Worthing. After 20 years of research by two German doctors comes the very latest alternative treatment to cosmetic injections and surgery. OXYjet is the world’s most effective oxygen system available, it works using pulses of pure oxygen pressure to harmlessly shoot 'BEAUTY-TOX' which is a special blend of active ingredients deep into the lower levels of skin. This amplifies the collagen within the skin, filling lines and wrinkles, for a smoother, softer complexion. This treatment is suitable for men and women who want to stay young looking without resorting to Botox and other cosmetic injections.

How is BEAUTY-TOX applied?

The BEAUTY-TOX treatment is applied using the Nora Bode OXYjet. Using pulsed oxygen pressure, the special active ingredients penetrate to the bottom ‘Basal Layer’ of the skin.
BEAUTY-TOX does NOT paralyse the facial muscles or alter facial expressions; the high concentration of the relaxing ingredient used reduces the muscle contractions responsible for the formation of lines and wrinkles on the forehead, and around the eyes and mouth. This treatment is completely painless, harmless and completely natural.

What is the best age to start with the BEAUTY-TOX treatment?

All ages will benefit from BEAUTY-TOX treatments, but if possible, it is suggestive to start in the mid 20s to prevent premature ageing.

How many Treatments do I need?
 You will notice an instant result after just one treatment so these facials are great before a special occasion to give you skin a quick boost. If you are looking for lasting results a course of five treatments is recommended along with homecare products and regular ‘top-up’ treatments every 6-8 weeks. All our courses of treatments include the home care products you will need to get the very best results.

How long do the results last?

The results can last up to 6 months, but this relies on the continuous use of the home care products and regular ‘top-up’ treatments every 6-8 weeks.

At last we can say Goodbye to BOTOX, hello to BEAUTY-TOX

OXYjet treatments will be available at La Belle - The Beauty Boutique from August 2011. For more information call La Belle on (01903) 239177 or visit our website

Ever wondered how celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz and Gweneth Paltrow have such beautiful, radiant skin? The answer is simple. They all have regular Microdermabrasion skin treatments. Here is some more information about La Belle’s most popular treatment…

What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a gentle exfoliation, using ultra fine crystals that rejuvenate the skin. The crystals work as a gentle abrasive on the skin to remove dead skin cells layer by layer. This results in the removal of dead skin cells and the clearing of pores giving a smoother surface instantly.

How does Microdermabrasion work?
The treatment is performed using a machine that gently blows ultra fine crystals onto the skin then removing them with a vacuum suction. The vacuum action of the machine stimulates the circulation and promotes increased blood flow to the area. The production of collagen and elastin is stimulated, which results in a firmer, more youthful looking skin.

What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion?

Immediate Results, straight back to work and radiant skin!

There is minimal discomfort experienced during a Microdermabrasion treatment and you are able to carry on with your normal day afterwards.

What skin conditions can Microdermabrasion treat
  • Acne & Acne Scarring
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Ageing Skin, Dull and Tired Skin
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Dry and Dehydrated Skin
  • Pigmentation and Blemishes
Is Microdermabrasion safe for all skin types?

Yes, Microdermabrasion can be used for all skin types on all areas of the body and face.

How quickly will I see results? 
You will see results immediately and with each subsequent treatment your skin will continue to look progressively better.

How many treatments should I have? 
La Belle recommends that all clients have a treatment once a month to keep on top of removing dead skin cells to achieve brighter, more radiant skin.
For problematic skin concerns a course of 6 treatments is recommended and treatments are usually performed every 7-10 days. Clients with pigmentation or acne scarring might need more treatments and we recommend a monthly maintenance treatment after the course has finished helping maintain the results achieved.

Are there any side effects to the treatment?
After the treatment, the skin may feel tight with mild redness. Therefore it is important that you use a good moisturiser. These effects normally subside within 24 hours of treatment.

Microdermabrasion Skin Treatments range from £35-£55 at La Belle - The Beauty Boutique. For more information visit our website or give us a ring on (01903) 239177.

St Tropez Spray Tan

The sun is finally out and if you’re feeling a bit pale and pasty from months of being hidden under wraps of clothing, why not try a spray tan? It may seem like a bit of a daunting treatment but once you have had one, believe me you will be hooked all summer!
Spray Tanning makes you feel better and makes you look slimmer it can also help camouflage cellulite and stretch marks! With the harmful effect of sun exposure, spray tanning is the safest way to get a healthy glow.  Here are my top tips for the perfect spray tan:
Prior to tan:
  • The week prior to having a spray tan done try and look after your skin by exfoliating and moisturising daily. Your skin often gets drier in the winter months so exfoliate to get rid of dead skin cells and moisturise to keep your skin soft and smooth.
  • The day of your tan exfoliate your body well focusing on the drier areas. DO NOT moisturise the day of the tan as this could act as a barrier and stop the tan from developing.
  • Bring loose, dark clothing with you for your appointment and loose footwear (flip flops are best). Try and come with your hair up and no make-up or deodorant on.
  • If you can, the evening appointments are best to have your tan so you can just go home and sleep with it on and wash off the next morning after to reveal the new you!
At Your Appointment:
Our therapist will ask you to fill in a consultation card and then take your into our spray tan room. You will then be left to get changed. (We supply you with disposable knickers or you can wear you own) You will be asked to put a hair net on and take off any make-up or deodorant.
The therapists will then moisturise you dry areas where the tan takes more quickly which are the hands, elbows, knees and feet. You will then be asked to stand in the tanning booth and the therapist will spray you with a hand held gun. The tanning application takes just 10 minutes to apply.
Your therapist will check the tan and gently buff it into the skin using a mitt to make sure that it is all even and there are no streaks! You will be then left to get dressed,  the tan dries instantly however it is recommended to wear loose clothes and avoid putting a bra back on.
Aftercare Advice:
Your tan will develop over 8-10 hours, it is recommended to not wash it off until it had completely developed. It is best to sleep in your tan over night and wash off the next morning. You may find it will rub off slightly on your sheets, this is the excess tan coming off. The tan is completely washable and should not stain your sheets or any clothing. When you wash your tan off in the shower, you will see the excess tan coming off and you will be left with a lovely, healthy looking tan!
Gently pat yourself dry with a towel when getting out of the shower and moiserise daily to help pro long your tan! Your tan will last for 5-7 days but will look its best for the first 3 days, after this it will gradually start to fade. It is recommended to gently exfoliate your skin everyday so when the tan does fade, it fades evenly and you’re not left with any patches.
St Tropez Spray Tan only £25 at La Belle.
