Facials, Environ and the DF Machine
Facials are important to maintain your skin health by removing impurities and dead skin cells as well as keeping your skin hydrated. For optimum results, you should have a facial once a month.
All facials include an eyebrow shaping as well as a shoulder massage. Carol uses Environ products during facials as she feels the range gives fantastic results on the skin.
Environ uses Vitamin A in its products. This normalises your skin while also improving the appearance of your skin by refining the skin texture and preventing sun damage and ageing. All Environ facials deal with your specific requirements...giving a vitamin boost or hydration to improve the appearance and condition of your skin.
The Environ DF machine is a machine that uses sound waves as well as a current to allow the products applied to penetrate deeper into the skin. This gives you more effective results. An advanced peptide (a peptide is an ingredient that encourages your skin to produce more collagen and elastin thereby creating a smoother, firmer, younger looking skin) facial can be done with the DF machine for a very effective anti ageing and hydrating treatment.
Peeling The Skin
Skin peels can be done with Environ's peeling system. Peeling helps to remove damages skin cells while improving the condition and appearance of your skin. Environ peels are effective yet mild on the skin meaning that there are minimal side effects. Some mild flaking may be experienced after a peel in areas where damaged skin cells were treated. Peeling the skin will make your skin more sensitive to the sun so it is best to peel in the winter months as a course of treatments and be aware to reapply sun protection throughout the day
Holistic treatments are treatments that are designed to promote balance in the body. Crystal Healing, Reiki and Kinesiology use energy to assist in balance and stress relief. Reflexology is the belief that your body is mirrored on your feet. Movements are done on specific areas of your feet to bring balance to your system.
Waxing is a method of removing hair from the body. The benefit of waxing is that it removes the hair by the root meaning that it is more effective than shaving as the regrowth will occur slower and the hairs will be thinner. This also eliminates the itching and redness from shaving rash. For best results, no exercising or hot baths should be taken directly after waxing to prevent aggravating the hair follicles.
Gelish, and IBX Nail Treatments
Gelish is a gel application for the nails that applies like a nail polish. Depending on nail growth, you will get between 2 and 3 weeks of beautiful looking nails from a gelish application! Soak off is quick and easy which means that there is no damage done to your natural nail and you can have a new nail design or colour every time you book for an appointment. Gelish is cured under an LED lamp which means your nails are dry as soon as the treatment is completed.
IBX is a nail treatment that helps with damaged, weak and peeling nails. The product penetrated into the nail plate to repair the damaged nail. This is not a topical nail strengthener but an effective treatment for your nails. This treatment can be done on its own or can be followed by a manicure or gelish application.
Gelish dip is a nail procedure where a resin is applied to your nail and then dipped into a coloured powder. This is ideal for clients who require something slightly stronger than the traditional gelish coating or those who do no like curing their nails in the LED lamp. The soak off procedure takes slightly longer than traditional gelish but does not damage the natural nail.
The Benefits Of Massage
Massaging is very important to increase blood circulation in the body. This helps to keep your skin firm and nourished. It also stimulates lymph flow in the body which allows your body effectively reduce toxins from your system. Massaging is also very effective in reducing stress and tension from the body.
Spraytanning is done with a tanning liquid and an airbrushing system to give you an even, beautiful looking tan in the shade of your choice. The tan is quick drying and a beautiful natural colour. Look healthy and sun kissed without the damaging effects of the sun! The tan dries quickly, but needs 8 hours to develop for best results. Exfoliate before your treatment and then come in loose, dark clothing and without any creams or perfumes on your skin. Allow 8 hours for the tan to develop and then you are ready to go! For best results, moisturise your skin regularly for a longer lasting tan.
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo procedure that uses a blade to draw hair-like lines into your eyebrow. The procedure involves measuring your face and eyebrows to determine your ideal shape, while also taking into account your desired end result. Microblading allows you to enjoy eyebrows that are fuller and without gaps for perfect brows all the time! After the treatment, you will need to avoid getting your eyebrows wet or exposing them to the sun for between 7 and 14 days. A healing cream will need to be applied twice a day for about 10 days. Your eyebrows will look darker for a few days after the treatment (don’t panic!) and will normalise thereafter. A follow up treatment will need to be done 6 weeks later. In some cases, a third session will be needed. Microblading should last you approximately 18 months before needing further touch ups.
This is a fabulous treatment that I recommend to incorporate into every facial treatment. Microdermabrasion is a machine that jets crystals onto your skin to remove dead skin cells. It provides a deeper exfoliation to the skin which brightens the skin, assists in regenerating the skin and leaves the skin looking smooth and radiant. The machine also has a suction effect which removes the crystals and dead skin cells from your skin while stimulationg lymph flow and blood circulation. This assists in having an anti ageing effect on the skin. 3 to 4 minutes of microdermabrasion is recommended to do in conjucntion with a facial. A course of treatments with 10 minutes of microderm per session are recommended if you have specific issues on your skin that you wish to treat. As this is exfoliating to the skin, your skin may be more sensitive to the sun so you must ensure that sun protection is applied daily after a treatment. There are no side effects to this treatment...only amazing looking and feeling skin!
I believe that make up should be a tool to enhance your natural beauty. For this reason, I often do bridal make up where the bride desires a more natural looking make up effect.
This revolutionary Permanent Hair Reduction Solution works in conjunction with a regular wax routine and is applied post epilation (wax) to the treated (waxed) area. It combines the simplicity of use with exceptional results that are equal to laser but without the limitations and excessive costs.
Microneedling is a skin treatment where small needles penetrate your skin to create tiny wounds in your skin. This causes your skin to activate its healing process which involves sending collagen to the injured areas. This assists in creating a younger, smoother looking skin. It can also assist to reduce scarring and pigmentation. Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy is done in conjunction with anti ageing and hydrating serums to boost the results of the treatment. There is some pain involved, but for most skin care issues it is not necessary to penetrate the skin too deeply. Your skin will be red for a few hours after the treatment and there may be sensitivity and even mild peeling for a few days after the treatment. Applying soothing and hydrating products during this time is highly recommended (individual advice will be provided during your treatment). Changes will be seen in your skin almost immediately but best results will be visible between 4 and 6 weeks after a treatment.
