SWCA created the Botox® Bunko Night to benefit a special charity called ‘Birmingham Magic Moments.‘ The sole purpose of Magic Moments is to make the lifelong wishes and dreams come true for seriously-ill children, providing them an opportunity to turn away from illness and suffering – if only for a moment – and feel what it is like to just be a kid again! It costs $4000 to create a Magic Moment for each child, and SWCA contributed $600.00 from the event towards a Magic Moment!! All of the attendees raved about how much fun they had and cannot wait until our next game night.
The event was held from 9am – 12pm in the parking lot of the Chelsea Publix on Highway 280. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet the community and share about services provided by Skin Wellness with the Chelsea community. This free family event was designed to promote healthy living habits and provide preventive care tips that can lead to a healthier and happier life.
SWCA provided a Fish for a Critter game for the K-5 students. Each student received an SWCA Fun Mix Kit which included a mix of candy and product for their skin. Additionally, Skin Wellness pampered the Mt. Laurel parents with complimentary hand chemical peels and hand massages. Thank you Mt. Laurel Elementary for allowing SWCA to participate in your annual faire!

Stretch marks can cause a great deal of distress, regardless of their location on the body. These marks are often considered a side effect of pregnancy.

However, these practices may not produce the kind of body contours desired. If you can relate, then you may want to consider the new and improved methods for shaping the body. Cosmetic surgical procedures like liposuction are commonly used to remove stubborn areas of fat on the body. Surgery is a big step, though; one that many would like to avoid.
