About waxing

Yes, waxing can be painful but these tips will help you to make your waxing visit less sensitive as possible. Many of our clients swear by a numbing Easy Wax cream, a topical solution available here at the salon for purchase. It must be applied 45 minutes prior to waxing and only a dime size amount is necessary. Taking two ibuprofen about 30-60 minutes before hand may help dull your pain receptors. The day of your waxing, limit your caffeine intake as it can stimulate the nervous system. It is recommended to schedule your appointment within the first two weeks after you cycle has ended. This is the time when you are less sensitive. Waxing can be done at any time, however, keeping these hints in mind will make your visit as comfortable and less sensitive as possible. If you considering having a waxing service for a special event, consider having this area waxed one month before the event; this will give you an idea of how reactive your skin will be. If there is no adverse reaction, you can have the area waxed up to 48 hours before the big event.

 

Before waxing. The length of the hairs should be at least quarter of an inch. Please allow hairs to grow for about two weeks or more. Before waxing, do not apply self tanner, moisturizer, or any abrasive body or facial scrubs. Do not take sun bath or tanning booth the same day of waxing. Certain products and medications can be contradicting for a waxing services, such as: Accutane, Retin-A, glycolic acid, alpha hydroxyl acid, Tazorac Avage, Differin, Strivectin, Renova, Proactive, Avita, Benzolyn Peroxide and Salycilic acid. If any other products might be questionable to you, check with your doctor if you have any doubts.

After waxing. For 24 hours after waxing there are several recommendations "Do not": exercise, take hot shower (warm shower is okay), use lotions or oils, soak in bath, go into a hot tub, apply any deodorants and perfumes, swim in the pool, ocean or lake. Please try to avoid shaving any hairs that didn't get picked by a wax. To fully benefit from a Brazilian wax it is important to wax every four weeks so that can get your hair on the same growth cycle. Hairs left behind may mean that your hair growth cycles were not synced with each other due to shaving or not keeping a waxing schedule. After 24 hours, it is recommended that you start exfoliating the area to prevent the possibility of ingrown hairs. Tend skin solution, sold by Organic Wax and Skin Care, helps to prevent ingrown hairs and irritation, recommended to use it in 24-48 hours after waxing.

 About SKIN CARE

A European facial is a great basic skincare treatment. You get personalized attention on your face and skin as well as time to relax and enjoy being pampered. A cleanser is used to get rid of surface impurities and debris. Exfoliant gets away the rough dead skin. Extractions are performed during the treatment manually. Masks are applied towards the end of your facial after relaxing massage. Facials are a perfect skin treatment to get on a regular basis as they are affordable and can do wonders for your skin if done regularly.

ADDS on to European:

Enzyme exfoliation: This treatment is considered a milder form of exfoliation, due to the fact that enzymes break down specific skin structures of the desmosomes. Enzymes function mainly to digest or break the peptide bonds of proteins. This means that cellular debris “stuck” to the surface of the skin is gently released, resulting in a fresher, more clarified and brighter appearance.

The Ultrasonic exfoliation: This treatment removes 20% to 50% of the stratum corneum (the outer layer of the skin which is continuously shed). The ultrasonic vibrations spin the water molecules at a high frequency causing cavitation, a brief phase change in the water molecule. This process gently loosens and removes oil, dirt and cellular debris from follicles for cleaner, healthier skin. Pores diminish in size and bacteria levels are reduced; removes the dead surface skin cells and cleans out follicles without irritation and inflammation. It uses no crystals, salts or chemicals, making it the perfect, gentle alternative for sensitive skin or for anyone who needs superficial resurfacing for common photo-aging skin damage.

Antioxidant Infusion: Takes place when low frequency ultrasound wave coax open microscopic pathways between cells through which nutrient-rich treatment compounds can flow. Antioxidant vitamins from Caviar ampoule gain access to the deepest layers of the epidermis, where new cells are forming new skin, to make it healthier and more resilient than ever before. This treatment also gently stimulates skin to produce collagen and elastin and aids in penetrating skin care products deep into the skin.

Smooth the texture of the skin, even skin tone

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion, also known as microderm, is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can get. Its benefits are many: microderm softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots.

Microdermabrasion also makes it easier for high-tech skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.

Microdermabrasion is essentially powerful mechanical exfoliation with an expensive machine, generally either the original crystal microdermabrasion technology or the newer diamond-tip microdermabrasion.

Both work by removing the uppermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, chest and hands. True microdermabrasion is usually done in a day spa, medical spa or specialized skin care studio. It gives results you can't achieve with a home microdermabrasion kit, which is basically a scrub for the face that is often too abrasive and can even irritate skin.

 The Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion can achieve dramatic results, but it is highly dependent on the skill of the esthetician. In general, it's best if you get it from an esthetician you already know and trust.

For the best results, it is generally recommended get a series of treatments. Your esthetician should be able to recommend the number that is appropriate for your skin type and condition. A typical protocal is six treatments about 10 to 14 days apart.

Because the machine can be adjusted depending on skin type and condition, even people with sensitive skin can get a treatment from a skilled esthetician.

It is important to realize that you have taken off the outermost layer of the skin, which is also its protection, so this is not the time to go to the beach. Be careful with your skin a few days after the microdermabrasion treatment: don't do vigorous exercise and don't expose your skin to the sun. Wear a gentle physical sunscreen, even if its a cloudy day.

How Microdermabrasion Works

The crystal microdermabrasion device consists of a compressor that draws in air through a hand-held wand. When the wand touches the skin, a vacuum is created. Aluminum oxide crystals, also known as corundum (the second-hardest mineral next to diamonds) blast across the skin’s surface, picking up dead surface skin cells along the way. The crystals and dead skin cells are quickly sucked up through a different tube in the same wand and go to a disposal bag.

The depth of exfoliation is controlled by the strength of the vacuum and crystal flow, which is determined by esthetician. He or she makes two passes over your skin, sometimes a third if your skin is thick enough or if there is an area that needs special attention, like a scar or brown spot.

 Crystal microdermabrasion can be uncomfortable, especially around the sensitive tissue of the mouth and nose, but it should not be painful. The esthetician should be checking in with you about your comfort level during the treatment. If anything hurts, speak up.

Diamond-tip microdermabrasion uses the same vacuum technology and hand-held wand, but there aren't any crystals moving through the tip. The diamond tip itself exfoliates the skin and the vacuum whisks the dead skin away. There are many different tips with various grades of roughness, and the esthetician choose the correct one for your skin type and condition.

 Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is much less uncomfortable, but achieves the same results. It is also usually better for sensitive skin.

What Is DERMAPLANING?

Dermaplaning is a gentle skin treatment that is performed by using a surgical blade that gently scrapes the outermost layers of the epidermis, therefore, ridding it of dead skin cells, impurities and debris. This treatment is an excellent way to exfoliate the skin and to regenerate new skin cells, thus leaving the complexion smooth, soft and vibrant. 

Is Dermaplaning right for me?

If you have dull, dry, dehydrated and/or congested skin it is often because you have a surface barrier of dead cells that are not allowing topical products to penetrate. At the same time, impurities are trapped and underlying new cells are unable to surface. Once your skin is dermaplaned, it accelerates and aids in the sloughing off of the dead skin, that barrier is removed and the skin begins to respond to the skin products being used. Also, it is able to expel the impurities from within creating a healthier and revitalized skin. Dermaplaning may also be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars. By skimming away the surrounding skin, the noticeable difference between the area levels is evened out. 

How many treatment do I need?

Treatments only take about 30 minutes and regular treatments are scheduled about 3-4 weeks appart. Blading the skin actually removes about 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cells. 

Won’t the hairs on the face grow back thicker?

No. The hair on the face is called vellous hairs and it is physiologically impossible to grow back thicker. There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies: Vellous (tiny translucent blonde hair) and Terminal (thicker hair that grows under the arms, pubic area, eye brows, mustache and beard for men and legs). Vellous hair when cut or removed will grow back the same. The structure of the hair does not become damaged, therefore it is impossible to alter. Terminal hair is physiologically coarse. When Terminal hair is cut, it grows back the same way…coarse.

Peels are accelerated exfoliation, having the immediate benefit of a general brightening of the skin’s appearance through the removal of surface proteins. 

Lactic  acid peel is gentle, safe and well tolerated by most skin types. Lactic acid is not only effective for lessening the appearance of hyper pigmentation but is also considered hydrating. There is no downtime and clients should expect little or no physical peeling.

DermaFrost peel is effective fro helping address acne and is considered self neutralizing. clients can expect a mild to moderate amount of physical peeling.

Alpha Beta peel is combination of lactic and salicylic acid, considered gently and very well tolerated and at the same time extremely effective. it will leave the skin soft, more even toned and luminous.

MandeliClear peel system was developed specifically for attenuating pigmentation issues associated with darker skin complexion. A “half Jessner” peel with added benefits of mandelic(almonds and wild cherries) acid makes the peel effective for brightening pigmentation associated with acne, melasma or sun damaged skin.

Anti-Age Management

What Is MICROCURRENT?

Microcurrent, meaning mild electrical current, is a near duplicate electrical current to that which your body generates on its own. It is so slight that it would take one million microcurrent machines to light a 40 watt light bulb and therefore generally sub-sensory. It was discovered that an injured or damaged tissue in your body, disrupts the natural flow of electricity generated by it. Therefore, preventing or delaying your body from healing itself. When microcurrent is applied to the injured or damaged area it restores the natural flow of electrical current and therefore the healing can begin.

How Does It Apply To Aesthetics? 

If you have skin with fine lines or wrinkles, sagging muscles or lost elasticity, this is simply damaged skin. Microcurrent has the ability to restore the lost energy to your tissues and thereby turning back the hands of time in your skin. When you get a microcurrent facial, the facial muscles and your skin are being giving a workout that stimulates collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are two essential proteins needed for the skin to remain youthful and glowing. A microcurrent facial is in essence a non-surgical facelift that will leave your skin looking amazing.

Is It Safe?

Pregnant women and people with any kind of heart condition will be prevented from receiving the treatment. However a person in relatively good health can get this wonderful treatment without any side effects.
