The key here, like in many markets around the world, is to know how to bargain, but be aware that the local Russia women are very tough and the like to up value their creations. Saturdays and Sundays are the only days when the Vernisage is really much of an attraction.

Carboxytherapy

Carboxytherapy  |  Buenos Aires, Argentina  |  Only one, of the many ambulatory beauty treatments that you can get performed while visiting Buenos Aires, taking advantage of the reduced cost and TOP professional services. Carboxytherapy is an innovative, safe, effective therapy that improves the elasticity of the overlying skin. It is used for skin irregularities, skin tightening, and as a complementary treatment to liposuction (for residual fatty deposits). The procedure works two ways. First, it kills fat cells through a process called lipolysis. Second, it causes blood vessels to dilate, which increases blood flow – and hence oxygenation – to the area. In the process it eliminates the built up fluids between the cells. The end result is fewer fat cells and firmer tissues. Carboxytherapy can be used to treat any part of the body. The procedure is safe, relatively painless, and simple to perform. No anesthesia is required, and there are no restrictions following treatment. Carbon dioxide is a byproduct of metabolism, during which it is transported in the blood and exhaled. It is naturally produced by the cells in our bodies every day and is non-toxic.

Carboxytherapy refers to the cutaneous and subcutaneous administration of carbon dioxide gas [CO2] for therapeutic purposes. Carboxytherapy originated at the Royal Spas of France in 1932 with the treatment of patients afflicted by peripheral arterial occlusive disease. In South America and Europe, carbon dioxide therapy has been applied to the treatment of stretch marks, cellulite, and hypertrophic scars with impressive results. Studies have demonstrated that carboxytherapy improves skin elasticity, improves circulation, encourages collagen repair, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and destroys localized fatty deposits. Carbon dioxide is a natural constituent of our very being. We breathe in oxygen, and we exhale carbon dioxide. Plants take up the carbon dioxide, and in turn give us the oxygen that we need. There are no known risks associated with carboxytherapy. Carbon dioxide injection.

In a sense, by injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide gas just below the surface of the skin, we are tricking it into increasing the blood circulation to that area. Dark under-eye circles, cellulite, and stretch marks have all been shown to have some root cause in poor blood circulation.

The whole procedure takes less than 30 minutes and it is combined for a better result and younger skin with a n ABM Monopolar Radiofrequency and a relaxing Face Mask.

Monopolar radiofrequency (RF) energy has been used to successfully accomplish noninvasive skin tightening of the face, abdomen, and extremities. Numerous reports of a monopolar radiofrequency (RF) device have indicated that this nonsurgical option for reducing skin laxity with little or no downtime may be effective to address sagging of facial skin. The theory is that carefully controlled RF can be used for heating to contract deep dermal tissue without superficial heat injury. RF energy deposition through a distinctive capacitive coupling membrane is used together with a timed cryogen cooling spray to regulate the depth and extent of heating. The most important aspect of this combination of heating and cooling is epidermal protection from injury while heating collagen in the dermis and other subcutaneous structures.

Believe me… I did this last Friday and has great and immediate effect. After all these and in only 1 hour you will look at least 5 years younger, and feel your skin tighter and firm. This along the PRP Treatment are only a few of the many ambulatory beauty treatments that you can get performed while visiting Buenos Aires, taking advantage of the reduced cost and the TOP professional services.

Buenos Aires Architecture Tour

Buenos Aires Architecture Tour |  Buenos Aires, Argentina | Buenos Aires holds a valuable, striking and suggestive architectural heritage. Inspired by international patterns and combined with the local tendency of free reinterpretation, Buenos Aires architectural scenery results in a wide and eclectic building legacy. This tour highlights the most outstanding features focusing on the descriptions and how they are related to the city’s history. The sites to be visited are: The financial city (from colonial times, passing by monumental bank architecture from the belle époque, to the Banco Hipotecario, impressive brutalist jewel from the 1960s). The second area to be visited is Avenida de Mayo (seeing, among other buildings, the former headquarters of La Prensa newspaper, café Tortoni, Barolo palace, Chile hotel, former headquarters of Crítica newspaper, National Congress). We end the tour at the postmodern and controversial area of Puerto Madero, seeing the buildings by some of the most important international architectural celebrities, such as Calatrava, Pelli, Foster and Viñoly.
Important note: although the tour focuses on façades, we always enter some of the buildings to see distinctive features (La Prensa building, Barolo palace, Faena hotel; and, depending on the time, a few of the banks, too).
The transport leaves us at Microcentro, where we walk for about half an hour. Then we drive along Avenida de Mayo, stopping for a one-block walk. Then we take Belgrano Avenue, with one small stop to see the Otto Wulf building, into Puerto Madero. Once in the area, we stop at the Faena hotel, then driving along Juana Manso Avenue, stopping again at the Fortabat Museum and walking two blocks along the river coast with excellent views of Catalinas towers, the Yatch Club and the brick old storehouses. Length of the tour: 03 hours daily Tour Class: Private.  Check my FULL Buenos Aires Photo Album on Flickr.CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
