A Recent Success

Vickie Mickey has just completed training in micro-blading! After many prior training in permanent cosmetics the invention of the micro-blading affords the opportunity to present the perfect eyebrow without all the prior issues in regards to permanent makeup. The micro-blading will last for several years and it will not turn that unpleasant color! Have the eyebrow you want and need now!

Skin Care  101

Skincare cleansers may occlude the skin, preventing other compounds, such as sunscreen, from being absorbed into the skin! Additionally, cleansers inhibit the release of hairs in teleogen phase or dead stage after laser hair removal. Better Options for skin cleanser are clear products that can be seen through compared to opaque products. Opaque or cloudy cleanser formulations contain high molecular weight waxes – such as cetyl alcohol or stearates – which make the skin feel soft. The stearates are deposited on the skin as softners.  however, the skin appears dull as the buildup prevents the skin from functioning properly.

We use what the celebrities are using, but ours is BETTER!

Hey there everyone!

There comes a time in our lives where our skin starts to lose its youthful appearance. Our muscles are no longer where they used to be and collagen is broken down. Luckily there is a way to help put everything back in place!

Microcurrent Face Lifts are a facial and neck massage that uses all natural galvanic current that works with your body to put your facial and neck muscles back where they once were. Microcurrents also rebuild your collagen! 

This link will show you more information about the process: http://extratv.com/videos/0-6lul0l2o/

The difference is we have a more effective machine and a better technique.

Tweezing and Waxing are the enemy!

Beautician prepares wax for a beauty treatment.

Hello everyone!

I’d like to talk to you guys about how certain hair removal methods are only worsening your hair problems. 

Methods such as tweezing and waxing are actually causing your hair to become coarser and more deeply seeded. By ripping the hair out of the follicle, you only irritate it and stimulate further hair growth. 

The better options for temporary hair removal are shaving or clipping the hair off the surface. This way you aren’t aggravating that annoying hair!

Of course the permanent solution is electrolysis, as well as permanent reduction with laser hair removal! Why waste so much money on temporary when it can be permanently gone?

Please feel free to comment with any questions about temporary and permanent hair removal methods. 

Happy Holidays!

Retinol: Why you should be using it

retinol eye

Hello everyone!

I wanted to explain to you all the benefits of retinol. There are many different skin types that can be improved with retinol. 

1. Aging skin: Retinol rebuilds collagen to tighten skin and help prevent future wrinkles.

2. Sun-damaged skin: Retinol works as an antioxidant to replenish damaged skin and lighten sun spots.

3. Acne prone skin: Retinol prevents free radicals from entering the skin, therefore clearing pores and fighting breakouts.

It’s a miracle in a bottle!

What to expect after an eMatrix treatment

Hey guys!

Many people are worried about down time when it comes to beauty treatments. The eMartrix treatment does come with minimal downtime but nothing nearly as bad as getting a surgical face lift.

Day 1: After the procedure, your skin will be red and appear irritated. You will be advised to keep an SPF of 30 or higher on throughout your healing process, as well as to keep a healing ointment on the treated area. 

Day 2: Your skin will have checkered looking marks where the current was applied. The surrounding skin will no longer look red/swollen. 

Day 3: Your skin will be less red and may be starting to dry out.

Day 4: The peeling process will start to begin on the areas that were treated. 

Day 5: Your skin will continue to peel for a couple more days. You will be advised to keep it moist and protected from the sun.

After the peeling has stopped, your skin will continue to rebuild collagen, level out scarring, and help improve pigmentation. You can have another treatment in a month from your last one.

For more information, check out our eMatrix pages!

Is your skin breaking out? It may be your makeup…

Hey guys!

I just want to take a minute and talk about break outs. Our skin is the biggest organ on our bodies and we need to treat it well!

When shopping for cosmetics, it’s important to know what is in the product. I myself have sensitive skin and get clogged pores that turn into blemishes with certain makeup brands. It can be avoided!

Here are a list of chemicals to avoid when looking for cosmetics:

1. BHA and BHT

2. Coal tar dyes: p-phenylenediamine and colours listed as “CI” followed by a five digit number

4. Dibutyl phthalate

5. Formaldehyde-releasing preservatives

6. Parabens

7. Parfum (a.k.a. fragrance)

8. PEG compounds

9. Petrolatum

10. Siloxanes

11. Sodium laureth sulfate

12. Triclosan

Just something to think about! Happy Blogging!

Will Laser Hair Removal work for you?

laserhair-removal-banner

Hey there everyone!

I wanted to share some information about Laser Hair Removal. There are many people out there that are not sure if their hair color or skin type would be safe for the laser.

ALL skin types are safe and can be treated (unless you have laid in the sun recently)! The main thing you have to consider is your hair color. If you have red, platinum blonde, or gray hair, the laser unfortunately cannot treat that hair. You would have to be treated with electrolysis for your permanent hair removal.

If your hair is anywhere between medium blonde to black in color, then you’re perfectly able to get hair removal performed safely!

Thanks for reading! Happy blogging!
