Contraindications & Side Effects
*Artificial eyelashes accentuate natural eyelashes by giving them a more dramatic and/or fuller look. Artificial eyelashes add length and thickness to the natural lash. Special glues or adhesives are used to adhere the artificial eyelash to the natural lash or lash line.
*Contraindications include but are not limited to-eye infection (pink eye, sty, inflammation), laser eye surgery in the past 3 months (a letter from a doctor is required), and swollen or irritated eyes.
*Some risks/side effects-swelling, stinging and burning in the eye and on the eyelid, red eyes, itching, pain, infection, and dry eye.
*Brow lamination is a temporary texturing treatment for individuals who have unruly eyebrows. Brow lamination softens the hair follicle and sets the hairs into a smoother shape. Brow lamination can be paired with other services such as tinting and/or waxing. Brow lamination can last up to 2-6 weeks.
*Contraindications include but are not limited to-recent lamination, eczema/psoriasis, recent eye surgery, alopecia, ultra-sensitive skin, pink eye, recent permanent makes-up, pregnant/breast feeding, and use of brow growth serums.
*Some risks/side effects-swelling, redness, peeling, itching, bumps.
*Brow tinting is a noninvasive, temporary procedure that darkens existing eyebrow hairs to make them look fuller. Brow tinting is effective for individuals who have enough hair to darken. Tinting may not be effective on sparse hairs. The tint can last up to 1-4 weeks.
*Contraindications include but are not limited to-cuts/abrasions, scar tissue, hypersensitive skin, allergic reaction to any form of tint or hair dye in the past, sunburn, pink eye.
*Some risks/side effects-burning/irritation, contact dermatitis, skin or eye infection.
*Dermaplaning is a procedure that gently scrapes the face to remove vellus hairs (fine facial hair or "peach fuzz") and dead skin cells (light exfoliation) using a surgical scalpel. Dermaplaning helps with product penetration, gives a brighter and smoother appearance, can reduce the appearance of acne scars and fine lines and wrinkles. Dermaplaning can be done monthly with a facial treatment.
*Contraindications include but are not limited to-active or cystic acne, thick or coarse facial hair, eczema (in the area to be treated), lupus, sunburn, use of Accutane, open lesions.
*Some risks/ side effects-Soreness, red and swollen skin from scraping, and/or burning or tingling for about 48 hrs.
*Diamond Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that offers aggressive exfoliation. It works to renew skin texture and tone. An abrasive diamond tip instrument is used to exfoliate the epidermis, which "sands" away dead skin cells to reveal fresh skin underneath. Routine microdermabrasion treatments during a facial can address concerns such as acne scars, sun damage, fine lines, dark spots, and melasma. Microdermabrasion can be performed every 2-4 weeks to help maintain results. Microdermabrasion is a great alternative for candidates who cannot tolerate acids (chemical peels or enzymes).
*Contraindications include but are not limited to-recent cosmetic surgery, laser treatment, chemical peels, injectables, inflamed rosacea or acne, sunburn, fragile skin, Retin-A or other medications that exfoliate or thin the skin, open lesions or sores.
*Some risks/side effects-a burning or stinging sensation, bruising, skin redness (similar to sunburn), skin swelling, and increased photosensitivity.
*Facials help improve the appearance and texture of the facial skin. Routine facials can address skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne, dry or dehydrated skin, and hyperpigmentation. Not only are facials beneficial for overall skin health, but they also activate endorphins which cause a positive feeling or relaxation of the body.
*High frequency is a facial procedure that uses electric currents to rejuvenate the skin and stimulate new cell growth. High frequency is used to treat acne, reduce the appearance of line lines and wrinkles, and shrink large pores. High frequency can be performed for faster healing time of lesions after extractions and acts as germicide to prevent secondary infections. High frequency can be performed monthly. An initial series can be performed weekly for 3-6 weeks.
*Contraindications include but are not limited to-pregnancy, pacemaker, history of heart disease, seizures, and metal jewelry (must be removable).
Some risks/side effects-redness, peeling.
*Some risks/side effects-mild and temporary redness, swelling, and tingling.
*A relaxation massage is manual manipulation using rubbing, kneading, stroking, and/or tapping techniques to relax the superficial muscles of the body. A massage can help stimulate metabolism and circulation, and has mental and physical benefits. The central nervous system also benefits from a massage causing neurotransmitters (dopamine and serotonin) to increase resulting in feelings of happiness and self-worth.
* The massage oil used is a lite, unscented, and nut-free oil. Essential oils can be added to the oil for aromatherapy.
*A vajacial is a spa treatment performed on the mons pubis and bikini line. Vajacials remove dead skin cells, help with hyperpigmentation, can smooth bumps around the bikini line, and treat ingrown hairs. Routine vajacials can help maintain, smooth, and hydrated skin in the vaginal area. It is recommended to have a vajacial once a month or every 15 days. A vajacial can be done immediately after a brazilian or bikini wax, or up to 10 days after waxing. Vajacials are performed only on a hairless pubic area.
*(Please wait at least 3-5 days after menstruating to schedule a vajacial.)
*Waxing is a temporary epilator for hair removal. Waxing can make the skin look and feel much smoother than with shaving. When waxing there are less ingrown hairs, regrowth is finer, and there can be a reduction of hair growth over time. Regrowth after waxing can range from 2-6 weeks depending on your hair type and texture.
*Contraindications include but are not limited to-rosacea, diabetes, sunburn, skin disorders, thin fragile skin, post-cancer hair growth, antibiotics, blood thinners, thyroid medications, cortisone, acne medications, and autoimmune disorders.
*Some risks/side effects-redness, irritation, tenderness
