Waxing Before and Aftercare Instruction 



  • Make sure your hair is trimmed and about 1/4 inch in length to ensure no excessive "pulling" is needed,” 
  • 30-60 minutes Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is the better choice over ibuprofen (Advil), but either will help take the edge off.
  • Apparently ibuprofen does prolong bleeding, and is not recommended before a more invasive procedure. Bleeding from waxing treatments is usually minimal, if at all, so it really doesn't matter which pain medication you take before being treated. Acetaminophen does not prolong bleeding time so it would always be the better choice if you're concerned.
  • “Topical anesthesia with 4% lidocaine can help take the edge off. You can ask your physician to prescribe it, and make sure you put in on 45 minutes prior to the procedure.
  • Regular face washing exfoliates the face for eyebrow waxes, but prior to leg, bikini, or anywhere else below the neck, make sure to use a body scrub at least a few hours beforehand.  By removing the dead skin cells you provide an easier exit for the hair.

  • High acidity in your body can make skin more sensitive.  Refrain from caffeine and alcohol for at least 3 hours before your wax.  Drink lots of water, and maybe pop a few antacids like Tums 20 minutes prior.

  • We do not recommend any person to make a body sugaring or waxing appointment less than 48 hours over-exfoliated skin using​ (Glycolic, Microdermabrasion Peel, Retinol A, Renova, Accutane or similar products) to avoid trauma or discoloration of the skin. 

  • We recommend you do not wax 48 hours before or after sun exposer and always protect your skin with Sunscreen SPF 30 or Sunblock after treatment. 


FACIAL THREADING


Why Threading Over Waxing? 
Threading is an ancient method of hair removal originating in the Eastern world.

In most recent times it has gained popularity in Western countries. Threading is preferred hair removal technique for a number of reasons. As opposed to waxing, the top layer of skin are not peeled or traumatized in the process making threading gentler on the skin. Threading is highly recommended and an excellent option for those who use (Glycolic, Microdermabration Peel, Retin-A, Renova, Accutane, or similar products)  


How Does's It Work?
Threading is a hair removal technique that uses 100% anti-bacterial cotton thread. The cotton thread is twisted and rolled along the surface of the skin entwining the hairs in the thread, which are then lifted quickly from the follicle.

It is more precise than waxing and allows for better lines.


Microblading

pre treatment & Aftercare Instructions 


Prior to appointment avoid any aspirin based products or  blood thinners 


Post care treatment 


First step in the microblading healing process is: 30 minutes after the microblading treatment rinse the eyebrows with neutral soap (children’s). Remove all the lymph and previously applied cream by doing so. After that apply a very thin layer of PhiShield. Repeat this procedure 3 to 5 times during the day.
If the treatment was done late in the afternoon and you do not have time to do it 3 to 5 times, put a plastic wrap over the eyebrows you previously applied the cream on, so that you protect the eyebrows from drying and wiping overnight.

In the next 7 days, maintain facial hygiene and apply the cream after washing your face or having a shower. PhiShield can be used on all skin types, due to its natural active components that regulate oiling.


What is to be avoided during the microblading healing process:

During the first 7 days all the creams (except for the protective one), all make-up (foundation) in the eyebrow area. Avoid workouts that involve a lot of sweating, sauna, facial massage and steaming – inhalation.

In the next 30 days:

Avoid Sunbathing, solarium, light therapies, chemical peelings, fruit acids, microdermabrasion, creams that contain regeneration factors.

Always avoid laser treatments over the treated area during microblading healing process (fraxel laser, IPL), because they can destroy the pigment and cause burns.

Use of antibiotics and hormonal therapy can lead to a faster pigment fading. Always protect the eyebrows from the sun with SPFs (not during the first 7 days).

EyeLash extensions

AfterCare Instructions 


*All products are opthalmology tested. A patch test is recommended 2-3 days before your first set of lashes are applied, to avoid any irritation to the eyelash adhesive. We use Premium Synthetic Mink and Silk Lashes which are flexible, soft and very similar to your own natural eyelashes. Our Glue is premium glue with less fumes and doesn't cause irritation for sensitive eyes. 


  •  Wait 24 hours before getting your lashes wet, the adhesive is still bonding to your natural lashes.


  •  Any cosmetic product or cleanser containing glycols, organic solvents, urea or high concentrations of alcohol should be avoided. Products such as these can potentially break down the adhesive bond and shorten the lifespan of the extensions.


  •  Gently Cleanse your lashes and eyelids daily to maintain healthy and beautiful lashes and follicles. 


  •  Use non oil based Eye Make-up Remover and Facial Cleanser.


  •  Although mascara is not necessary with Lashes Extensions, Mascara can be used sparingly on the tips only, to achieve an even more dramatic look.


  •  Curling of  Eyelash Extensions is not recommended.  Because the extensions come pre-curled, additional curling is not necessary and doing so may shorten the lifespan of the extensions by compromising the adhesive bond.


  •  Avoid pulling, picking or twisting your lash extensions. This can cause damage to your natural lashes and lead to premature shedding of your extensions.


  •  Lashes can be removed at anytime with a solution by your Aesthetician, do not attempt to remove yourself or pull off lashes


  • Use a lash wand to fluff your extensions to reduce tangling and flipping every morning and night.​


  • Touch-ups every 2-4 weeks are recommended for maintenance purposes.

​BEFORE & AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS 
Chemical Peels & Microdermabrasion


  • ​Avoid taking blood thinners, Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen and pain relievers before microdermabration, although it may relieve pain temporarily it also thins the blood leaving you prone to bruising and broken capillaries. 
  • Hold off on using Prescription acne products Retin-A, Renova and all other medication 48 hours prior to and after your peels and laser treatments unless instructed by your skin specialist.  
  • Avoid sun exposure and sun beds or sauna, steam rooms and jacuzzi for 48 hours as this will increase your chances of broken capillaries.
  • Avoid vigorous exercises, hot yoga and swimming for 24 hours.    
  • Our preference would be to wait 10 days to 2 weeks, until the swelling and bruising from fillers have fully resolved. Botox also takes approximately 2 weeks to achieve the full effects. 
  • We recommend waiting at least 2 weeks, to give enough time for your skin to recover after the IPL. Try to be safe and choose a mild chemical peel, such as 15-20% glycolic or salicylic acid peels. Having a Chemical Peel 1-2 weeks before the IPL will be a good idea as well. When the skin is exfoliated, the light from the IPL will penetrate better and you will have a more beneficial treatment.
  • If having Laser Hair Removal you need to wait 10 Days after your Micro – usually Laser Hair Removal on Face is done monthly so 1 Micro Session fits nicely in between your Laser sessions.
  • Do not use any exfoliating products or products containing AHA’s for up to 7 days after Micro Treatment. These can irritate the skin.
  • Avoid any waxing/threading/epilating for a week after Micro.
  • If you have had a skin peel you need to wait minimum of 14 days before you can have Micro – otherwise the two treatments combined together can have harsh effects on the skin. Drink plenty of water to re-hydrate the skin.Remember that the new fresh skin that is exposed is delicate – Use SPF 30 sunscreen / sunblock to protect the skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Keep the skin well moisturized, using a Epicurean moisturizer day and night – this will avoid any peeling and dryness.
  • Keep the skin clean with PH balancing products – that means cleanse, tone and moisturize every day. Your treatment should be repeated every 10-14 days until you have reached the desired result – You will attain healthier Skin after each and every treatment.​ 



The Benefits OF Infrared Body Wrap


    •  
 Cellulite reduction and fat loss

    •    Treatment of muscle spasms and joint stiffness
    •    Treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis
    •    Enhance blood flow

How does the Infrared Body Wrap works? Fat loss and cellulite reduction


When we accumulate body fat, blood circulation becomes worse. Because of a lack of blood circulation, we cannot metabolize or burn body fat. In addition, very little heat is being circulated to that part of your body. This is what we call "cold spots." When we take away the heat from that area of your body and it cools, the fat then turns from subcutaneous fat into cellulite. Subcutaneous fat is very soft and easy to lose. Cellulite is almost like hard muscle that is hardened from lack of blood circulation.

The purpose of the Infrared Body Wrap Treatment is to apply heat to the body in order to get underneath the fat tissue and thin the blood to allow it to get into the areas where fat tissue exists. Bringing the blood back into the areas that have had restricted blood flow causes the metabolism rates to rise. The heat softens the fat tissue causing it to break up and be released into the blood stream in the form of calories to be burned up as energy.


Your body will burn off those calories through the day. While the weight of water lost can be regained by rehydration, the calories consumed will not be and the inches loss from Infrared treatment is permanent.

Increase metabolism. 


The heat produced by the Infrared Body Wrap Treatment is similar to that of a cardio or physical workout all while laying down for a period of 50 minutes. This infrared heat stimulates the metabolism and increases blood circulation just like it would with a workout session. It will also increase your heart rate and increase blood circulation. This increased circulation will also increase your Basic Metabolic Rate and by doing so consumes or burns calories. Your metabolism will also be stimulated for at least 24 to 36 hours after using this treatment. This means that your body will be burning calories at a higher rate for the next several days after using one treatment.
