Treat your skin to a steam clean with this luxurious facial

THE idea of a steam clean always appeals but have you ever thought of how steam can benefit your complexion? Jill Duggan of Killarney Toning & Beauty Studio has unveiled the top-class new Sothy’s Paris Collagen Hyaluronic facial, now available at the studio.

This is a super-effective treatment, which involves extractions, yet is still seriously relaxing – you simply lie back on the luxurious heated bed and let your therapist do the rest. “This is a deep-pore cleansing facial with steamer and hot towels,” says Jill.

The Sothys deep-pore cleansing treatment aspect of the facial definitely leaves the complexion feeling balanced and also boosts radiance – so much so that I feel you can even consider skipping the foundation if you wish the next day! “This is a facial that can be customised according to the skin’s requirements and is recommended for all ages,” adds Jill.

The therapist will begin the facial with thoroughly cleansing the face. Skin analysis follows, to determine your skin type and choose the appropriate products and treatments.

Exfoliation comes next, using a mechanical or chemical exfoliant to rub away the surface dead skin cells, before the steam machine is pressed into action. “We use a machine that directs a thin vapour of warm steam to your face,” says Jill. “This is relaxing and helps softening up any blackheads and whiteheads to be extracted.”

Following an extraction (or two), lie back and enjoy the facial massage. “This both relaxes and stimulates your skin and facial muscles,” says Jill.

Last but not least, a facial mask is applied targeting your skin type and condition.“At the end we use Sothys toner, serums, moisturiser, neck and sunscreen,” said Jill. “It's important to maintain results with correct home care.”

Killarney Toning & Beauty Studio stocks the entire Sothys skincare range and has some excellent special offers. Call 064-6632966 for more details.

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.
