Last week I shared an amazing company and crazy great giveaway with you. You can check out the giveaway HERE. It is for 6 underarm laser hair removal treatments. That means that you will never have to shave under your arms again. Wow! Lucky winner. Make sure you head on over to enter. Today is the last day of the giveaway.
Who is NIMA? And why are they giving away laser hair removal?
When I realized that I was going to hit my 100 pounds in weight loss, I wanted to celebrate I wanted to do something for me. Something that would make me feel fabulous.
As I mentioned in the giveaway post. We all need a little pampering now and then. We all need to do something for ourselves. I think it is so important that if there is something about yourself that you want worked on, or fixed, or if you just need a little pampering, that you do it!
If that means 20 minutes a day with a good book, DO IT. If it means 30 minutes at the gym, DO IT! If it means a SPA day full of relaxation and pampering, DO IT!
NIMA was started by the owner of Elase Medical Spas. You’ve heard of them, I am sure. They are amazing medical spas that have wonderful treatments for everything you could want. Facials, Laser Hair removal, Botox, Skin Rejuvenation, even weight loss, the list goes on and on. Carrie (the owner) was looking for the best of the best when it came to estheticians. And she just wasn’t finding what she was looking for. So, she went ahead and started her own Esthetician School. NIMA (National Institute of Medical Aesthetics) is a school but they have a spa built right in. You see where I am going with this, right. LOW LOW PRICES! Sweet!
When I got to NIMA I was instantly impressed by the professional spa feel. I had to keep reminding myself that this is a school. Everything is so nice and state of the art.
The first thing I did on my Spa day was spend some time learning about my skin. This cool machine is called the Emage System. I put my face into the round part and it took a bunch of pictures of my face with different lights. Very cool. Then all the images were downloaded to a computer which then reads them and gives you an analysis of your face. Don’t laugh, but here are the pictures they took.
Cool, right. This analyses all of your wrinkles, sun damage, pores, skin tone, ect. Being a red head, I of course have more skin damage due to the sun. But my wrinkles were pretty good, especially considering the weight loss. It was so interesting. After the analysis, they then give you a list of products and other things that you can do to help your skin. I loved this education. I hope to do a bunch of things that they recommended and then come back and do another analysis to see if I have improved.
After the Emage, I headed over to get a back facial and regular facial. WOW! Can I just tell you, it was a little slice of heaven. I have never had a facial, let alone a back facial. I would recommend both! It was so relaxing and my skin looks and feels amazing. Even now and it has been a few weeks.
Oh, and I totally fell asleep during my facial. Which is just CRAZY! One, because I never nap. I have such a hard time relaxing. And two, because I NEVER sleep in public places. But it was the most relaxed I have been in a VERY long time. It really was wonderful.
After my facial and back facial, I finished the day off with a manicure and pedicure. Yep, they do those too. And they do an amazing job. (Did I mention that they are crazy affordable)
The hardest part of the day was deciding on my colors.
Did I mention that they did a GREAT job. So professional. I had this done 2 weeks ago, and my nails still look amazing.
I couldn’t be happier with my spa day at NIMA. They really are the BEST find in Utah. With amazing prices, impeccable service, and a stellar group of ladies, I would recommend them over and over again.
I can’t wait to go back! Hopefully you’ll head on over to NIMA’s Facebook page and like them. They run specials just for their Facebook fans. Then go check them out. They are in a great location just off the freeway. Call them and book your appointment today.
