I must be a slow learner! I have too many regrets in my life…you know, things I know now that I wish I had known then! One of those regrets is that I ceased to take care of myself during most of my (kids at home) parenting days, so it has only been in the last eight years that I have taken care of myself at all!

I know now that feeling visible and confident is improved when I take care of Pam …dress nice, eat healthy, exercise, have refreshment times, and treat myself to pampering! So, when aesthetician, Kathleen Haagenson, invited me to visit her spa, I did not have to think twice….I was in!
Kathleen’s desire to help women of all ages began when she struggled with acne during her teen years. “I know how it eats at your self- esteem,” she said. “Now I just want to help girls feel and look their very best with proper habits and facial care.” For some of us, ageing is the same as acne. The saggy, wrinkled skin can zap our self-worth with the snap of a finger in front of a mirror, if we allow it.
|Kathleen Haagenson, 28, aesthetician and beauty consultant says she loves|
the intimate setting their spa provides. She can follow up on her patients and
they become like family!!
So, with a heart of service, Kathleen attended the Aveda Institute in San Antonio, became a certified aesthetician and beauty consultant, and joined Edans Med Spa, located in the SA Medical Center area. The spa itself opened a little over one year ago and includes the services of physician, Dr. Khym Zarzuela. They offer a full slate of spa packages including physician supervised weight loss programs.
When we discussed women of a certain age, Kathleen confirmed that we will be much more confident with regular facials and occasional body perks such as the seaweed wrap and the gesso body wraps. With exposure to so many free radicals on a daily basis, it makes sense that we would feel and look better with procedures designed to detoxify our systems. She said I got a good detox, because I was parched after the seaweed wrap!! In fact, I downed water the rest of the day! I would love to try the gesso wrap before summer is over…it is designed much like a cast placed around that tire I carry in my middle and will create maximum sweat and eventually inches off from fat loss! Sounds great to me!!

I will confess I was a little nervous when she asked me to be a guinea pig for a new facial she has designed! But, I decided to trust her….she has a great smile…. And go with the new Summer DeTox Facial….I am the first one to get it!! She performed a deep cleansing, manual microdermabrasion, a seaweed/mud/clay masque, and toner. I confess I cannot stop staring at my face…it looks amazing….tight skin, less wrinkles…it feels great! I also received time under the LED light. Kathleen said she has regular patients who call this the magic machine, and come on a weekly basis to get a treatment. She said it is a miracle worker with tightness, age spots, and wrinkles!! My face feels like it went on a vacation and my husband said he now wants a facial....he has never said that!

|This isn't R2D2!! It is a pain free, no needle way to get rid of cellulite! The|
Lumicell Wave gives the same results as the French mesotherapy injections
given for anti-ageing, weight loss,and cellulite.
If you are in SA, then call Kathleen at 210-348-8089. She suggests planning a summer spa party…either a facial party or Botox parties. You bring the guests and they provide a discount on the services, wine, and cheese!! Or refresh yourself with her Summer DeTox Facial..it is amazing! Also, look for a Botox special in your Groupons late in the month!
