Fall is just around the corner……I know, I don’t want to accept it either! So why not go into fall with a glowing complexion? I’m offering 2 Fall scented facials at Sova Skin Solutions. The first facial is the toasted coconut coffee facial. This facial will satisfy any coffee lover! The toasted coconut coffee facial includes a gentle exfoliation,  using a coconut/papaya enzyme that dissolves dead skin, leaving you with glowing, healthy skin! The coffee and caffeine in the arabica coffee mask are antioxidants to protect and stimulate the skin.  Coffee and Happybelle-PE are the active ingredients which stimulate microcirculation for a flushing of toxins from the skin. Happybelle-PE leave the skin relaxed and happy! This yummy facial is good for those with dry, normal and even those with sensitive skin.

Hello you beautiful people, I’m so excited to be bringing in an additional skincare line.

I made the decision for my clients, to offer them a gentle, yet effective line that offers affordable home care. SkinScriptRX is a professional grade line that is not tested on animals, paraben free, fruit based and ideal for treating all skin types. Their products are created to address skin concerns, while improving the skin’s appearance. Skin Script’s philosophy is based on the idea of progressive rather then aggressive treatments. They have a great variety of home care, like the  Pomegranate Antioxidant cleanser for those with dry, sensitive, or rosacea. One of my personal faves (it smells amazing). Or the Acai Berry Moisturizer…. meant for dry/normal, sensitive or mature skin.

I’ve had a few people approach me and ask my opinion on the “at home” dermaplaning tool. And because I am so passionate about the industry, and love dermaplaning, I thought I’d write a little blog to clarify. These tools seem to be trending and are being advertised as dermaplaning. The tinkle razor is in fact what it says, a razor. That’s all. And unfortunately people are being led to believe that it’s actually dermaplaning. It only removes surface hair.

I just purchased the MSB, a handheld LED device that has multiple benefits! This small but powerful tool, enhances product penetration, reduces redness and inflammation, stimulates collagen renewal and skin rejuvenation, and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores!

 

There are 6 different settings on this amazing handheld LED device!

The first setting omits a red LED light, along with thermal heat therapy and an ultrasonic vibration. Thus giving a deep cleaning and exfoliation, along with anti-aging benefits. The red light penetrates into the subdermal layer, promoting collagen renewal.

Lash Lift

What is  a lash lift you ask?

A lash lift is a semi-permanent treatment that enhances your natural lashes, making them look fuller and longer.There is minimal after care, good for short or long lashes, nourishing and conditioning. I use the Elleebana lash lift system, which takes half the time to process, so about 40 minutes with a tint. The Elleebana lash lift is the best in the industry. The solution is gentle, yet effective. It contains keratin, which helps strengthen the lashes. This process is very simple and even relaxing too! I attach a small silicon rod on the lash line, lift the lashes on the rod, apply the lash perm, apply the setting lotion, then the tint. It’s that simple! The lift last for 6 to 8 weeks, even up to 12, depending on how you care for them.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is the removal of the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). It is also highly effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scarring, while leaving skin smooth, supple and vibrant. It creates the perfect smooth canvas for makeup application too! This blank canvas allows products and serums to penetrate deeper into the skin, showing great results.

Dermaplaning is performed with the use of a specialized sterile surgical instrument. After the skin is prepped, the Esthetician holds the skin taut, and gently scrapes the skin with the blade held at a 45 degree angle. An enzyme mask, as well as serum, moisturizer and SPF is applied after the dermaplaning. Read more

I recently had 2 of my clients mention that they went somewhere else to get their faced waxed and they both broke out in a red itchy rash. They both stated that the tech double dipped in the wax, and didn’t cleanse their faces before or after. This got me to thinking, it is important to educate the public on what to look for to ensure the place of business is following the safety and sanitation laws. It is our responsibility as licensed professionals to follow these laws for the safety of our clients and ourselves. Please read below for some tips to look for the next time you go get a service at a spa or salon.
