Stay Looking Young As A Vampire With Help From… A Cow?

Read Original Article from Racked – Shopping and Style Intelligence posted on Friday, February 1st, 2013
DNA CryoStem Cell Therapy has arrived in Chicago. The latest and greatest treatment in combatting signs of age is being offered exclusively at Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique in Chicago. Ms. Chavie, a skincare guru (did you know she has been in the business since she was just 15?), invited Racked to her skincare boutique in Lincoln Park to experience the newest treatment that involves… organic bovine stem cells.

Yes, COW, stem cells.
DNA CryoStem Cell Therapy is a treatment to protect, correct and rejuvenate skin that has suffered photo damage and premature aging. It tones, firms and lifts the skin. Originating in the French Alps (the serum is actually overnighted from France) the serum is made of embryonic fluid rich in nutrients and stem cells extracted during the first trimester of a bovine’s pregnancy. The serum is applied to the face prompting skin cell renewal.
It sounds very sci-fi movie like and while the thought of applying bovine stem cells to the face may not sound appealing at first, rest assured that the treatment is quite relaxing and produces immediate results. In fact, word is that your favorite Hollywood vampires are getting this treatment twice a month.
Currently this treatment is only being offered in a handful of spas across the country. Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique is the only one currently offering it in Chicago.
And for you animal lovers: No cows are harmed in the process. – Victoria A. Olivares

Revision Skincare’s Nectifirm featured in RedBook

Revision Skincare’s Nectifirm, a featured product at Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique, was featured in RedBook as a prescription for your neck.
Original RedBook: You may be diligent about taking care of your face, but it’s time to focus your attention a little further south. Experts say your neck and decolletage are like the early-warning system of aging. “The skin there is much thinner, which means it’s probably the first place you’ll notice things like sunspots and crepiness,” says Ava Shamban, M.D., an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at UCLA and the author of Heal Your Skin. “Treat these areas to the same anti-aging ingredients that are in your face moisturizer, like peptides to boost collagen and stop sagging and Vitamin C to brighten and diminish spots.” Revision Skincare’s Nectifirm
