Estheticians, also called Skin Care Therapists, specialize in cosmetic treatments of the skin and beautification of the skin. Estheticians perform cosmetic skin treatments such as professional skincare recommendations, facials, chemical peels, waxing, makeup applications and body treatments.

Microblading is all about creating the best shape for each face. The process is very precise thanks to the tool that is used which is effectively like a pen with the nib being a sloped blade with 10-12 little needles at the end – needles that don’t penetrate the skin but just delicately scratch the surface, much like a paper cut. 

The needle very finely implants featherweight strokes with a medical grade pigment on the epidermis layer for the skin, creating fine, realistic and natural hair strokes.

For a quick treatment with no downtime, dermaplaning might be just what you need for smooth, glowing skin! Dermaplaning is perfect before events, special occasions or for those who prefer a face free of “peach fuzz” for easier makeup application, promotes deeper product penetration and better skincare efficacy. We also recommend dermaplaning to anyone about to undergo a laser or chemical peel treatment to allow better penetration which leads to better results. Dermaplaning is also an amazing treatment for pregnant women who are unable to use certain actives in their skincare and must avoid many skincare treatments. 

Formulated to improve the appearance and texture of the skin by increasing cell turnover, the one-step esthetician-strength Lite Peel: Refresh is the perfect “lunch-time” skin freshening treatment. It relieves skin congestion, dullness, sallowness and improves acne with no downtime. The Lite Peel: Refresh has a pH of 2.9. 

What’s in it? 

  • Malic Acid 30% – Potent Alpha Hydroxy Acid that encourages cell turnover, hydration and reduces problem bacteria. 
  • Salicylic Acid 5% – Anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties improve skin clarity and texture by cleansing pores; lipophilic properties boosts the penetration of malic acid for optimum cell turnover. 
  • Willow Bark Extract 14.5% – Anti-bacterial and comedolytic properties help cleanse pores. 
  • Onion Bulb Extract 0.5% – Anti-inflammatory properties calm and soothe the skin. Contains quercetin to stimulate and encourage the production of collagen and elastin. 

SkinPen is a microneedling system that encourages the production of collagen in the skin through the use of stainless steel needle cartridges. The needles create a precise and controlled “micro-injury” that stimulates the body’s natural healing response creating new collagen and improving the appearance of the skin. 

A lash lift curls your lash from base to tip so that you can see the full length. All lashes have a natural shape to them, so this process alters that shape via a tiny curling rod and a lifting solution. The results typically last four to six weeks, depending on how quickly your eyelashes grow.

Lash tints are a happy medium between mascara and falsies, giving you a wide-eyed, long-lashed look for a relatively affordable price and with little upkeep. If you’re someone who regularly gets their brows shaped and tinted, then adding a lash tint to your routine will barely make a dent in both your budget and time. Lash tints last approximately 6 weeks.
