Modern Essentials Med Spa!!

Today I started off my day with a FANTASTIC 18.60 mile run in 2:26...I met Angel and we ran our route in reverse order and my goodness it was good!!  We had to really hold back on our paces and force ourselves to slow down.  I LOVE when you see progress and increasing strength and speed in a training plan!  I kept my first 10-11 miles right at training pace or close to it and kicked it into high gear the last 7-8 miles.  I felt very strong today and even felt like I had a lot left in the tank when I was done!  I am really learning a lot from this training cycle and cannot wait to truly race! 
High Voltage!

Runner problems!!  Angel had to crack her toe and adjust her shoe on the HIGH VOLTAGE electrical box...Nice!  She survived and did not get shocked. 
Runner's High!!
After a nice warm shower I went to my friend Angela's new Med Spa...She and her mom just opened Modern Essentials Med Spa in Hockessin, DE.
Lovely Ladies!!

For the past 3 months my skin has been sooooo unhappy and inflamed.  I have tried so many different things and nothing has seemed to help but actually just makes it worse.  It has been extremely painful and I have become very self conscious about it.  Well... when I got the invitation to go to the open house I contacted Ang immediately and told her my situation...I feel so much better knowing who is doing the treatments and that they truly do work.    
MUST go here!!
So I had the HydraFacial and it was AMAZING...
My skin felt so clean and healthy instantly...the HydraFacial is a non-invasion, non-surgical procedure that shows results immediately.  It uses a vortex effect that feels like it is literally pulling the dirt and impurities right out of your skin!  There is a 4 step process:  Which does not take long
Step 1:  Cleansing and Exfoliation
Step 2:  Acid Peel ( helps loosen dirt from pores without irritation )
Step 3:  Extractions ( Painless extractions use vortex suction to clean out pores )
Step 4:  Hydration  ( Antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid are  Vortex-Fused to nourish and protect )

This may be life changing for me!  They also offer a ton of other services at the Spa also including many different types of massage ( which was also AMAZING especially post 18+ mile run today ), waxing, Botox and Fillers, facials, and i-Lipo Ultra+ ( Non-Invasive alternate to Liposuction ). 
Loved the massage!
 The Spa was beautiful and very personal!  I felt totally comfortable and relaxed... The entire staff was full of information and extremely friendly.  I highly recommend treating yourself to a service here at Modern Essentials Med Spa!  They also carry a full line of skin care products...

Highly Recommend!
