The ultimate in feelgood magic at the Killarney Park Spa

WANT to look and feel your best before a special occasion or simply feel like a little pampering? Then a visit to The Spa at the Killarney Park Hotel is a must.

The five-star hotel spa is always a wonderful haven and never more so than now, following a stylish refurb. To celebrate the spa’s new look, spa manager Jessica Horgan and her team are offering some really exciting summer packages. Choose from Glow, €69, and Shine, €99, or the Spa Special, €99.

The Glow package is a 40-minute treatment of choice, featuring Lime & Ginger or Massage or Booster facial followed by light lunch in the hotel’s Garden Bar.

The Shine package features a Tri Enzyme facial and back massage and also includes light lunch.

Thirdly, check out the Spa Special, which features an Elemis Biotec Firm and Lift Facial. In addition the first 30 readers to book one of these offers will receive an Elemis travel set, which feature generous-sized luxury Elemis goodies as well as a stylish purse.

The Elemis Biotec facials are ones to look out for if you have a special occasion on the horizon. Ultra-relaxing, they really live up to their billing as “results-driven” treatments.

They combine technology and the comforting magic of traditional hands-on massage and are regarded as the “next generation” of facials. Following this treatment, I drifted home from The Spa feeling super-relaxed and could definitely feel and see difference days later.

It is for this reason that many opt for this treatment prior to a big event such as a wedding, says Jessica. “The Triple-Tec Anti-Wrinkle Facial is ideal if you have a wedding coming up and is often chosen by brides and mothers-of-the-bride,” she said.

Elemis Biotec offers five standalone technologies in one machine; Ultrasonic Peel, LED Light Therapy, Galvanic Current, Microcurrent and Oxygen Infusion.

Powerful plant actives work with the body’s natural bioelectrical field and enhance the skin’s ability to rejuvenate. There are also facials tailored to sensitive and blemish-prone skin as well as a specific lifting facial. Contact The Spa at the Killarney Park on 064-6670089.

It may sound too good to be true but fat dissolving injections are as effective as the name suggests.

They are administered by our in-house Dr. Micheal Flynn who has been attending our salon for the past 10 years. It is the double chin and neck area that is treated and is suitable for both men and women. If you haven’t heard of fat dissolving, it is a very popular and relatively new treatment that is used to target stubborn pockets of fat on the jaw line and chin area. The injection dissolves and eliminates fat cells in a safe and effective way, making it perfect for dealing with stubborn fat that simply won’t budge with exercise.

The main ingredient is a fat dissolving substance sodium deoxycholate, which is found naturally in the body. This is injected into the treatment area which over time will destroy the fat cells. These are then removed from the body by its own lymphatic system, a complex network that rids the body of unwanted toxins and waste.

It is important to understand that fat dissolving injections are not a weight loss treatment. The injections should only be used on people who are a healthy size or carrying a little extra weight. It’s most effective on the pockets of fat stored under the jawline, known as the double chin, a migration of fat cells from the cheeks to the jaw line.

The injections work at a slow pace. It can take serval weeks for full results, but once it’s gone, it’s gone. The results are permanent, once you don’t gain a massive amount of weight.

The next clinic is Monday August 22. To book an appointment or more information, call Jill on 064 6632966.

Six members of the Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club will set out from County Meath on Wednesday on vintage tractors.

They are participating in the annual Eastern Vintage Club’s Ring of Kerry Tractor Run which is raising funds for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Over 50 vintage tractors, including the six Killarney examples, will leave Nobber in County Meath at lunchtime on Wednesday.

After an overnight stop in the midlands on Wednesday night and Newcastle West on Thursday night, the tractors are expected in Killarney town centre just after lunchtime on Friday.

The ‘spectacular show’, now a regular feature of the Killarney summer, will bring the town to a standstill for around one hour.

On Saturday morning the group will depart Tony Wharton’s farm in Fossa before a nine-hour drive around the Ring of Kerry.

The run will finish with a spectacular drive through the Gap of Dunloe.

“We hope to pass through town around 3.30pm on Friday,” said local organiser, Tom Wharton, who is one of the six Killarney-based drivers who will undertake the 400km journey from County Meath to Killarney. “It is always a spectacular show.”

On arrival in Killarney, tractors will be joined by a group of classic cars that will depart Nobber at 9am that morning.
