Cosmetic Procedures: Waxing


Waxing is considered to be the most effective method for removing unwanted hairs from practically any part of the body. Waxing is the epilation method which ensures complete removal of hair shafts from underneath the surface of the skin. Waxing is also one of the long lasting temporary hair removal methods. There are various other benefits of waxing discussed later in this article.

Generally, it is observed that it takes almost 3-8 weeks for new hair to grow back in the waxed area. The major advantage of waxing is that any body parts like face, eyebrow, underarms, arms, legs, bikini line, etc. can be waxed.

How An Eyebrow Change Totally Transformed These Celebs



Having good eyebrows is important to many women, but eyebrows in general - whether shaped or not - are actually a quite practical addition to your face. Eyebrows serve two main purposes and one is pretty obvious - to help keep things out of your eyes. Eyebrows also play a significant role in communication. We all recognize a furrowed brow to indicate displeasure or raised brows to signify surprise. Beyond just helping us demonstrate and understand emotion, eyebrows are useful for facial recognition. It's no wonder, then, that celebrities who have changed their eyebrows have also dramatically transformed their entire look.

DOs & DON'Ts When Getting Your Makeup Done By A Makeup Artist



This is what I think everyone going to a makeup artist should consider and keep in mind. I kind of learnt over time that COMMUNICATION is key. The very few unhappy clients I have had is because they were very passive and did not communicate with me at all so I had no clue on what they really wanted from the makeup application. I don't read minds, obviously. Every makeup artist wants a happy client, and I believe these tips will help you be happier with your makeup application. I understand that perhaps not all MUAs would agree with my tips, but these are tips I'd tell my clients. And remember that not everyone works the same, every makeup artist is different from another.

10 Reasons To Wax Instead Of Shave



# 10 Reasons to Wax Instead of Shave :

Shaving is a rather inefficient method of removing unwanted hair from the body. Depending on how fast your hair grows, you could end up shaving daily just to keep up with the growth. Fortunately, there is an alternative to shaving. Many people find waxing to be a better option for several reasons.

1. You can’t cut yourself with waxing.

2. Waxing lasts longer.

3. Hair grows back thinner.

4. The pain decreases the more you wax.

5. Waxing leaves your skin smooth.

6. Waxing is faster than shaving.

7. Using wax helps drain toxins from your body.

8. You can use the wax that works best for your skin.

9. Repeated wax treatments can eventually result in permanent hair removal.

10. Ingrown hairs are less likely with waxing.

Cosmetic Procedures: Extentions


This revolutionary new service extends your natural eyelashes and draws attention to your eyes. Semi-permanent eyelash extensions give you longer, thicker and natural looking eyelashes. They look so natural that no one will know they are not yours!

The extensions are semi-permanent and are made from single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They provide length and thickness to your own lashes and are available in varying lengths and thickness.  Each lash is applied one by one to your own natural eyelashes. Normally a person's natural eyelash falls out every 60 - 120 days and a new lash grows in. Therefore, it is necessary to get touch-ups every 2 to 3 weeks to add lashes to the new growth.   Your natural lash cycle as well as how you take care of your lashes will affect how long the extensions will last.   Some clients have had their extensions for over a year with regular touch-ups visits.

There is no need for mascara even though water based mascara can be used. The result is thicker, longer, eye opening eyelashes that are safe in the shower, while swimming, sleeping or exercising.  This new service has gained a tremendous amount of popularity in the last couple of years as the look achieved is so natural. Whether you are looking for an everyday look, lashes for your wedding day or just a weekend away – lash extensions will transform your look!

Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Opt For Professional Microdermabrasion


Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular skin resurfacing techniques used in medical spas and cosmetic clinics worldwide. It is not only cheap and painless exfoliation technique but has also shown tremendous results in improving skin tone and texture by eliminating facial wrinkles and removing acne scars. Dermatologists across the world are also using this technique to effectively improve hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration problems.

The popularity of Microdermabrasion prompted different companies to start preparing Microdermabrasion home kits, consisting of scrubs and exfoliating creams. Some companies have also prepared kits with a battery-powered exfoliating device to give nearer to professional Microdermabrasion results. You can easily use these Microdermabrasion kits in the comfort of your home to get a smooth, glowing skin.

Now you must be thinking, why anybody would choose professional treatment when a cheaper alternative is available? The answer to this question is simple; you can never beat the proficiency of professional hands that have been performing a certain procedure for years now. There are numerous other reasons as well to convince an individual why he or she should go for professional Microdermabrasion despite having the choice to perform the same procedure in the comfort of home. Top three reasons why you should opt for professional Microdermabrasion are listed below:

Higher intensity of skin polishing:

One reason why professional Microdermabrasion should be preferred over at-home procedure is that the former offers the highest level of skin polishing as compared to any other skin exfoliation technique used at home. Dermatologists use expensive Microdermabrasion systems in their clinics to instantly buff away damaged layers of skin while keeping the surrounding areas as well as inner layers intact. Furthermore, professional Microdermabrasion kits use aluminum oxide crystals for exfoliation, which is not the case with home kits. Some creams in the home kits also contain aluminum oxide crystals but they do not remove the dead skin cells as effectively as does a professional kit.

Professional hands can obviously do the job in a better way:

Another reason why you should have the procedure done in a clinical setup by or under the direct supervision of a board-certified dermatologist is that professional hands can obviously do it much better than you or your friend or family giving you the exfoliation massage. In addition to that, the doctor will also formulate a treatment plan that suits you the best. The doctor will carefully assess your skin type and the extent of damage before setting the strength of the procedure. The FDA-approved clinical Microdermabrasion kits also allow the clinicians to control the speed of exfoliation during the procedure by controlling the level of crystal blasting. Sometimes the doctors also combine Microdermabrasion with other cosmetic procedures such as chemical peeling or laser skin resurfacing to achieve the best results. For mild to moderate damage, he may combine the procedure with topical treatments to accelerate the efficacy of treatment.
It is the safest mode of treatment:

Lastly, you should get the procedure done by an experienced dermatologist in a clinical setup because there you get the safest mode of treatment. They use sterilized equipment free of germs and harmful bacteria with all the safety precautions. Adjustable devices will also minimize the risks and side effects often associated with the procedure.

Having that said, Professional Microdermabrasion will not only reverse the skin damage safely and effectively but will also maintain the youthful results afterward. So why to risk with home kits when you know only professional hands can do it in the most effective way. Visit your nearest cosmetic clinic today and get the skin rejuvenation procedure done by experienced hands with an FDA-approved system in a safe environment.

Sciton - ProFractional Therapy



ProFractional is Scitons solution for achieving excellent resurfacing results with minimal downtime. Unlike full field resurfacing which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body's wound healing response which stimulates fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and tunable results that can range from subtle to dramatic.

ProFractional utilizes a 250 µm spot size and offers a range of treatment densities from 1.5% to 30% coverage. ProFractional-XC utilizes a 430 µm spot size and predefined treatment densities for greater speed. ProFractional-XC also provides the ability to add depth-selectable tissue coagulation for enhanced collagen remodeling.

How To Take Care Of Your Face!


Taking care of your face is very essential. The skin on your face needs more attention than the rest of your body because it has more oil glands. The forehead, eye, nose and chin area need extra care because of the extra oil glands. You need to perform a brief morning and a longer evening regimen every day, whether you think you need to or not. After you have your own facial regimen, cleaning your face will take only five to ten minutes a day.

Your morning facial care should take place in a shower or at a sink. You should clean the face with luke-warm water and a creamy cleanser or gel wash. Try to avoid bar soap because it will strip the face of its natural moisturizers. Blot the skin dry with a towel, never rub the skin dry. Next, tone the skin on the face. Toning the skin will help remove any makeup or residual cleanser that may have been left behind. Skin toners also help to restore the natural pH level and keep the skin clear, clean and ready for hydration.

After applying the toner, use a day cream which should be specialized for your skin type. A moisturizer will leave the skin feeling soft and smooth. Day creams also help with dryness and smooth away fine lines in the face. Sunscreen can also be applied over the day creams when needed. When you are finished, you make apply make-up if you wish to wear it.

Your evening facial regimen should begin the same as the morning. Wash your face with luke-warm water and a cleanser or purifying gel wash. The skin cleansers will help remove any makeup you had on. A toner should then be applied. The easiest way to use a toner is on a cotton swab or pad. While your face is still wet, you should begin exfoliating.

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells. These dead skin cells cause the face to look dull. The build-up of dead skin cells can contribute to blockage of pores which causes acne. Also, this buildup will not let the products you use to penetrate the skin or work to their full capacity.

Exfoliation will brighten and give the skin a healthier glow. Afterward, apply a night cream and if you want to use a firm eye cream around the eye area. Also, never go to sleep with makeup on as this will clog your pores while you sleep.

Xeomin



XEOMIN is a prescription medication injected into the muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.

How does Xeomin work?

When you squint or frown, the muscles between your eyebrows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.

Botulinum toxin type A- the active ingredient in Xeomin- acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin can temporarily reduce the lines between your eyebrows or anywhere else on the face.

Broadband Light for Your Face - Treating Broken Capillaries and Other Facial Redness Problems



Red blemishes on your face like broken capillaries, nose veins, rosacea, and others can now be safely and more accurately treated using broadband light (BBL). BBL uses interchange laser wavelength filters to solve a multitude of skin problems caused by the sun and other damaging environmental factors; hyperpigmentation; and, aging. This treatment, while generally suitable for all areas of the body, is commonly used for skin problems on the face, neck, and décolletage areas.

Although the length of the BBL treatment period always depends on the gravity of the skin condition, a session or two would usually eliminate the majority of the blemishes. Your first visit will include a thorough examination by your cosmetic specialist. Aside from discussing with you about your skin concerns, you can expect him to check your medical history and take photos of the areas needing treatment. You'll be shown before-and-after images of previous patients with conditions similar to yours. In cosmetic clinics using the latest technology, you might even be able to get a glimpse of how your skin would look after your treatment.

The BBL treatment is non-invasive and doesn't require anesthesia. During the procedure, you will experience quick stings like rubber bands flicked on your skin. An ice pack or a similar remedy may be provided if certain areas of your skin need to be calmed. Right after your treatment, expect your skin to be flushed. The good thing is that you can wear make-up immediately after the procedure. Or you can simply wait for a few hours and your skin color will return to normal. If not, you should immediately contact your doctor.

Most facial redness problems treated with BBL usually do not recur, but there are certain conditions like rosacea wherein new vessels may develop after some time. The latter would require maintenance treatments at infrequent intervals. Post-procedural care is important, however, to avoid any further damage to your skin.

While BBL treatment is considered safe in the industry, it also presents risks, as in any medical treatment. Possible complications include prolonged redness, swelling, and even bruising. If not treated immediately, they can eventually lead to infection.

Also, BBL treatment is not recommended for people who have disorders that involve seizures; cold sores and suspicious lesions; and, other similar infections. It's also prohibited for pregnant women and those who've been tanning their skin.

Broadband light is now considered the gold standard in helping eliminate facial redness problems, since it's proven as an effective, fast and safe cosmetic solution. Just make sure that your doctor has discussed well with you your skin concerns and the whole procedure before going ahead with the treatment.

Micro Laser Peels Can Help You Look Younger And Minimize Lines And Wrinkles


If you wish that your skin was smoother and looked healthier, consider undergoing a microlaser peel. This minimally invasive procedure uses laser energy to resurface the skin by removing the damaged outer layers. The result is an appearance that looks younger and rejuvenated. This state-of-the-art technique reduces skin blemishes like fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and sun spots by using short bursts of laser energy. Many patients find that micro laser peels result in significant improvements in the tone, texture, and pigmentation of their skin.

The technique takes only about an hour and can be performed right in the doctor's office. First, a topical numbing cream is spread over the surface of the skin to ease discomfort. Depending on the depth of the peel, an oral sedative or local anesthetic may also be used. While the most popular treatment areas are the face, neck, and hands, microlaser peels can be performed on nearly any area of the body, wherever you have skin blemishes you wish to treat.

Unlike most other techniques for skin resurfacing, one of the benefits of microlaser treatments is that the doctor can precisely control the depth of the peel, or how much skin is removed. The laser device is set at a particular depth according to each patient's individual needs. Some skin blemishes can be treated by a light, superficial peel, while others require a deeper peel because the damage extends further into the skin.

Once the anesthetic has been delivered, the doctor will begin treatment by holding a handheld laser device against the skin. This device emits pulses of laser energy which will enter the targeted area of skin. This energy vaporizes the outermost skin layer, including dead skin cells and superficially damaged skin. Because the treatment removes the outermost layer of skin, it is known as an 'ablative' technique. This energy also heats the layers of skin within the body, stimulating the production of collagen, a key structural element of the skin.

Microlaser peels are not painful, and you should feel minimal discomfort, thanks to the anesthetic used. Some patients do feel a slight stinging sensation as if a rubber band was snapping against their skin. After the doctor has finished treating the skin with the laser, patients are free to return home immediately.

One of the benefits of microlaser peels, when compared with other skin resurfacing procedures, is the short recovery period. For the first two to five days, depending on the depth of the peel, you may experience some redness and swelling. The newly revealed skin will feel as if it is sunburned, and it will be sensitive to the sun, so sunblock must be worn whenever you are outdoors. Some patients take a few days away from work to allow the side effects to subside, while others return to work on the same day as the treatment.

After undergoing laser skin peels, you will find that your skin appears healthier, smoother, and rejuvenated. Immediate improvements in skin texture and pigmentation are often noticed, while further improvements occur over the next six months, as collagen production improves, strengthening and smoothing the skin. While many patients find that one microlaser peel is enough to achieve their desired results, others undergo two or three additional peels until they are satisfied with the texture, tone, and pigmentation of their skin.

What Can You Expect At A Microdermabrasion Spa?


Microdermabrasion spas have become a popular alternative to home products for people with damaged or neglected skin. Home products are great for everyday maintenance, but some cases call for professional measures.

Store-bought products aren't enough to treat skin that has been overexposed or damaged by a severe case of acne. Some skin care clinics and spas are owned or operated by a licensed esthetician who has the training and tools needed to give you the absolute best treatments even if you suffer from very badly damaged skin.

What is Microdermabrasion?

The microdermabrasion is a fairly straightforward process. Human skin is constantly shedding the outer layers and the dead skin cells can build up over time and remain on the surface. As this layer of dead skin cells builds, it reduces the body's production of new skin cells.

When the outer layers are removed the skin increases collagen production and starts to rebuild itself. The end result is skin that is firmer and thicker, making it much healthier.

Keeping this outer layer of dead skin removed encourages the body to keep producing new skin, which is healthier and more youthful in appearance. If the dead skin is left on the body, the healthy skin beneath it will become thinner and start to sag, creating wrinkles.

Why Should I Get Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion has numerous benefits. Even for people with healthy skin, microdermabrasion can help fight the natural signs of aging that everyone experiences. In addition to having a healthier appearance, removing the outer layer of dead cells will help the skin absorb moisture better and make-up will go on smoother.

If you have scarring from acne or spotty coloration of the skin, microdermabrasion can help rebuild new tissue and reduce hyper-coloration. From fine lines and wrinkles to acne scars, microdermabrasion can be an effective treatment for most skin conditions.

Can I See Just Anyone?

The process of microdermabrasion used to involve ground up stones and shells, but has recently evolved to use diamond-tipped tools and particle-free brushes. Some microdermabrasion spas also take advantage of the exfoliation process and include an infusion to increase the effect of the treatment. This entire process is best performed by a specialist who knows exactly what you need to get healthier skin and has the tools and knowledge to give you the best results.

Having suffered from a serious skin condition is not a requirement for seeking a specialist for microdermabrasion. If you have noticed the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles from the natural process of aging, you are already a candidate for microdermabrasion.

If you have had major issues with your skin, getting a treatment to reduce the appearance of scarring can be a big confidence boosting experience. Your face is what you use to communicate with the world and when you feel good about how you look you can literally put your best face forward.

Top 5 Reasons To Use Botox



Are you worried about the facial wrinkles and creases that have started developing on the face over the last few years? Seeking an effective cure for excessive sweating? Have chronic migraines become unbearable for you? Or, uncontrolled eyelid twitching has started hindering your daily activities? Don't worry, you are not alone. There are millions of people around the globe battling either of these issues. For most of them, Botox is the best solution. Yes, you have read it right; Botox is the top priority of millions of people battling these cosmetic and non-cosmetic conditions.

What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin, sold with the brand name Botox, is a naturally occurring neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. Though it is a poisonous substance, when administered in FDA approved doses by a board-certified, experienced dermatologist, it can help treat a wide range of problems. Primarily, it is demanded and used for eliminating fine lines and wrinkles that start appearing on the face over time due to repetitive expressions. But doctors are using it successfully to alleviate numerous health conditions as well, including, excessive sweating, chronic migraines, misaligned eyes, uncontrolled eyelid twitching (blepharospasm) and pain management.

If you are also facing any of the above-mentioned conditions and are not sure whether you should try Botox shots or not, here are Top 5 Reasons why you should decide in favor of Botox injections:

1. Look young forever

Whenever you smile, laugh, squint or frown, multiple muscles in your face underneath the skin contract to help you express your feelings. But over time, these facial expressions start becoming permanent, leading to the formation of deep, etched lines that make you look years older than your actual age. There are various surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures available in the market to help you look and feel younger and beautiful, but none of them offers as instant results as does Botox. Botox injections are extremely helpful in reducing aging signs and symptoms by erasing unsightly facial lines and wrinkles. The drug works by preventing the wrinkle-causing muscles from contracting. The skin tightening caused by Botox injections is not only instant but also lasts for several months, thus allowing you to look younger and fresher even in your late 50s.

2. It can address other health conditions as well

As stated above, this naturally occurring toxin can also be used for treating various health conditions. These include excessive, uncontrolled sweating, chronic headaches (a migraine), urinary bladder problems, neck spasms and lower back pain. When used for treating excessive sweating, the toxin works by inhibiting the chemical that stimulates sweat glands.

3. The results are instant

Effects of Botox treatment generally start becoming visible within a few hours after first getting the injection. However, peak effects can be seen after 7 to 10 days. So, you will notice a continuous improvement in the appearance of facial wrinkles over the next few days. Same is the case when Botox is used for treating medical conditions like hyperhidrosis, migraines, chronic pains or eyelid problems. All these conditions start showing signs of improvement within hours following the injections.

4. No recovery or downtime

Unlike surgical facelift or other abrasive skin resurfacing techniques, Botox treatments are non-invasive or at most, you can call them minimally invasive. So, they do not require any downtime or recovery period. Botox treatment is categorized as a lunch-break procedure. You can come to the clinic during your lunch hours, get the injections and resume your regular activities immediately afterward, with no pain or discomfort. You may experience slight swelling or bruise at the injection site, but that can be effectively alleviated by icing the treated area or by applying cold compressions.

5. Risks are minimal

Most of the procedures used for treating above stated cosmetic and non-cosmetic conditions have numerous side effects or at least require extended recovery periods. But there is no such problem when it comes to Botox treatment. The best part of these anti-aging injections is that when administered by an experienced dermatologist or cosmetic plastic surgeon, they do not cause any unnecessary side effects. Some possible side effects include slight swelling and bruising at injection site accompanied by a headache or nausea. But they are all temporary and go away on their own within 24 to 36 hours.

What Do Chemical Peels Do For Your Skin?



The skin is the largest organ of the human body and it provides a covering for our body, as well as helping it to breathe and to detoxify. Unfortunately, our skin is also prone to a number of difficulties because it is exposed to the outside world around us. Overexposure to the sun, damage due to the wind, heat and other elements, an improper diet, dehydration and the aging process all tend to take their toll on the appearance of our skin. That is why many people are looking for a way to improve their skin as the damage is occurring.

One of the options that are available to those who would like to improve the look of their skin is a chemical peel. This is a type of treatment which causes the outside layer of the skin to blister and to heal because you are applying a chemical solution to the skin. The effect of the chemical peel is that the new skin, which is now exposed, is often less wrinkled and much smoother than the old skin which has been removed. The effect is somewhat temporary, but it can be quite profound. Here are a few of the specific benefits that chemical peels have to offer.

Reduce Lines and Wrinkles - One of the more common reasons why people choose to have a chemical peel is because it can reduce the lines and wrinkles that appear due to the aging process and because of sun damage. These lines and wrinkles tend to be pronounced around the mouth and under the eyes.

Reducing the Appearance of Scars - Another benefit of chemical peels is that it can reduce the appearance of scars. It is important to note, deep or severe scars may not be affected to the point where a visible difference will be seen. For mild scars, however, it can make a difference and can improve their appearance considerably.

Acne - Certain types of acne can be treated with the use of chemical peels. It may promote the overproduction of skin cells, keeping pores from getting clogged. In some cases, up to a 50% reduction in acne lesions may be seen after a series of treatments have been completed.

Reducing Spots - Dark patches on the skin, including freckles and age spots, may be reduced with the use of chemical peels. Those dark spots may exist because of the aging process or they may be more likely to occur if you take birth control pills.

Improve Your Skin - the most popular reason why chemical peels are done is to improve the look and feel of the skin.

If you are considering getting a chemical peel, it's a good idea to make sure that you are a candidate for this procedure. Individuals who have light hair and are fair skinned tend to be better candidates. Those with darker skin may also get chemical peels but could end up with uneven skin tone when the procedure has been completed.
