New to Face
Pellevé this! A new painless skin treatment with no downtime is now available at Salon Senoj with skin consultant Amy Lavis. The procedure uses a radio-frequency wand, which heats up deep tissue, rebuilding collagen and elastin. “Pellevé provides a very subtle, natural result that continues to improve over time,” Lavis says. 101 Aris Ave., Metairie, (504) 835-5500, salonsenojdayspa.com
New to Old
Take a break from your vodka martini, and go to the dark side — of liquor, that is. The bourbon Old-Fashioned is new again — made all the more chic and divine with small-batch cocktail bitters and culinary extracts by Bittermens. These products are made in a New Orleans facility, featuring organic ingredients. After all, you’ll want a stiff drink after all the working out and shopping — at least, we think you should!
