A facial is a multi-step skin treatment including cleansing, exfoliation, steam, facial masks, facial massage and a variety of creams and lotions. Compared to your at-home routine, you will get a deeper clean, and have better product penetration. Facial treatments can help slow down the aging process and prevent wrinkles. When getting a facial massage it will increase blood circulation and oxygen flow, therefore, promoting the production of collagen and improving the elasticity of your skin. Come relax and rejuvenate with a customized facial catered to your skincare needs.
The simplest way to to understand this process is to think of it as perming your eyelashes. The perming solution alters the shape by curling the lashes upward. Depending on the growth cycle of the eyelash it typically lasts four to six weeks. Before the appointment be sure to remove all eye makeup thoroughly. Also, be sure to remove contacts for the service.
Waxing is a hair removal process. Hard wax is gentler on the skin as it only adheres to the hair. It is best for sensitive areas. Soft wax is used with a strip and removes the first layer of skin as well as hairs in the area being waxed. Results can last anywhere from two to six weeks depending on the person and their hair growth cycle.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive add-on procedure used to eliminate dead skin cells. It aids in renewing overall skin tone and texture. It can also help improve the appearance of sunspots, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin concerns. It gently sands away the thick outer layer of the skin to aid in rejuvenation.
Dermaplaning is an add-on procedure that exfoliates the skin and gets rid of dirt and debris while also removing vellus hairs (peach fuzz.) This procedure aims to remove fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring. Dermaplaning clears damaged skin cells and are replaced by newer, healthier skin cells leaving your skin brighter and clearer.
Eyelash/Eyebrow Henna Tint
Henna is a special dye that is used to stain the skin and tint the hairs. It is a form of semi-permanent makeup you can apply to the eyelashes and/or eyebrows. On the lashes it gives the same effect as mascara. Whereas on the brows it looks as if they have been colored or filled in. This procedure can last anywhere from two to ten days.
