Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Hair Reduction

iStock_000017384804XSmall

IPL is a permanent method for the reduction of unwanted hair. In a series of treatments as short as five minutes, IPL emits pulses of intense light into the hair follicles. The intense pulsed light strikes the contrasting dark hair follicles converting the light into heat which loosens the hair and disrupts the cells responsible for growing new hair.

You will need to have a series of anywhere between 3 and 6 sessions of IPL because your hair grows in different cycles. When hair grows back after an IPL treatment will be lighter and thinner, and over time you will begin to see a permanent reduction in hair growth in the treated area. People with light skin and dark hair will see the best results.

IPL hair removal is not advised for darker skin because of the risk of skin damage. You should avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight for four weeks before and after treatment.

Lash and Brow Tinting

Female eyes

This treatment adds color to your eyelashes or eyebrows for more dramatic looking eyes. You can dye your lashes and eyebrows to match your new hair color or you might want to darken up brows that blend too much with your skin tone to provide more contrast.

We use a non-invasive treatment requiring no downtime and the results will be immediate.

LED Photofacials

This is a gentle treatment that feels cool and relaxing on your skin. LED photofacials use a narrow spectrum of light to boost the production of collagen in your skin to make the skin more supple, smooth and young looking.

An LED photofacial is also an effective way to treat acne by killing the bacteria in your skin that causes acne.

A Photofacial using LED will not provide as dramatic a result as plastic surgery, but it is a much gentler, non-invasive and far less expensive way to revitalize and greatly improve the appearance of your skin.

A back facial treatment is custom formulated to meet your personal needs, and it includes extractions and exfoliation leaving ythe skin on your back soft, smooth and glowing.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a gentle, non-surgical way to smooth, and soften your skin, reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles and age spots, and generally make your skin feel fresh an look younger. Microdermabrasion uses a diamond-tipped wand to gently sand and remove the outer layer of the skin to stimulate the growth of a new layer of skin. This gentle abrasion stimulates the skin to produce collagen, a protein in your skin that keeps young skin tight and smooth, but as its production slows down over time skin can grow loose and saggy.

This treatment is safe for darker complexions and it is gentle enough for those with burn scars, acne scars, pigment changes or other skin conditions.

In order to get the best possible results, these treatments are often done in a series about 10 -12 days apart.

Your esthetician will advise you about how to care for treated areas when you get home. You’ll want to nourish and protect the skin after the microdermabrasion treatment while the new skin grows. Wear sunscreen and stay out of the sun immediately following treatment.

Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup is applied using a process that applies micro-pigmentation depositing safe, colored pigments just below the skin in the dermal layer. Not unlike a tattoo, the pigment is applied using a needle, so there will most likely be some degree of discomfort during the treatment.

The esthetician will apply a topical ointment to numb the skin 15 minutes before the procedure. Depending on the treatment area, a permanent makeup treatment can take anywhere from 45 minutes to just over an hour.

Permanent makeup can be a wonderful investment for anyone from the busy woman who does not want to take the time each morning to apply and then later, re-apply her makeup, athletic women who tend to sweat off their makeup, those with vision impairment or unsteady hands who have difficulty applying their own makeup will love the subtle enhancement to their natural beauty that permanent makeup can provide.

Face & Body Waxing

Waxing is a safe way to temporarily remove hair at the root. While waxing is temporary, waxed skin will be silky smooth for weeks, and when the hair grows back it does so more slowly without the rough stubble you can get from shaving.

Warm wax is applied to the skin and then gently removed leaving skin smooth to the touch. The results will last a month or two depending on how quickly your hair grows, and treatments should be repeated about every four weeks or so.

Be sure to protect your skin from the sun before coming in for a waxing treatment because we can’t treat sunburned skin. Also be aware that waxed areas can be sensitive temporarily right after a treatment
