Just in time for the holidays, we have 100% Pure Mink Lashes in!
What's the difference between lashes?
Though very little difference in look, there is a difference in feel.
Pure Mink Lashes: Mink lashes are made with real fur and are the most natural looking and luxurious of all lash extensions. Because they are extremely fine, it is advised to schedule a more dramatic service because more are required to lok full. Minks are extremely soft and absolutely seamless on any lash.
Synthetic (Faux) Mink lashes: Synthetic (Faux) Mink Lashes lashes are sterilized and hypo-allergenic. These synthetic mink lashes have a black, high gloss finish that mimics the look of real mink individual lashes (extensions). Synthetic mink lashes are curled and tapered to perfection and will give your clients a soft, natural, yet durable, glamorous sexy look.
Silk Lashes: Our silk lashes are the finest on the market made with natural silk protiens providing a lighter, softer feel than faux minks. They are great for adding length, thickness, curl and drama to any look while still looking like beautiful, clean, natural lashes!
The Official Pumpkin Peel has arrived! Come get your facial..
Pumpkin Peel Facial
Pumpkin Peel Facial with Microdermabrasion
Our Pumpkin Peel Treatment is a powerful antioxidant treatment that brightens and rejuvenates the skin. Pumpkin highest contains the concentration of salicylic acid of any plant, which provides the Pumpkin Peel Treatment with potent skin smoothing and pore clearing action. It also offers more than 100 beneficial components including the highest concentration of vitamins A, C and beta-carotene found in any other fruit or vegetable..
During the microdermabrasion treatment, the aesthetician uses a device to deeply exfoliate the skin and improve its tone, texture, and clarity. A vacuum draws away the exfoliated cells, giving the complexion a fresher appearance and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The pumpkin peel then delivers antioxidants and enzymes to the skin, making it look refreshed and younger.
The Sudatonic Infrared Body Treatment is a great complement to our mineral body wraps or can also be done on its own. When fat accumulates, circulation deteriorates. This leads to a vicious circle of fat & cellulite development. In time this leads to cellulitic skin, and increasingly degrading condition. Hormones that control the in out flow of fat cannot reach fat cells, making it difficult to lose fat. This condition can be caused by numerous things: bad diet, lack of exercise, hormonal imbalances, wearing tight clothing.
The Sudatonic System works with FIR Infrared technology to make the body burn fat by forming a resistance of sweating and then making the body try to sweat. The four Sudatonic creams function by applying 2nd skin on top of regular skin. The user then lies in a specialized French Heating Blanket, which heats the entire body up, and causes the body to try to sweat so that it can cool off. This is the natural body reaction whenever it warms up. The creams also help to activate and promote fat mobilization.
What is Far Infrared (FIR)?
FIR infrared ray energy is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight, minus the skin damaging UV. FIR Infrared Heat Therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone, texture and mild cleansing of the skin. See page 10 for more information on the health benefits of FIR Infrared.
In one session, a client can:
Lose up to 5 pounds
Burn up to 4000 calories
Lose inches off the waistline, hips and thighs
Dramatically reduce cellulite
Completely invigorate the body
Reduce stress and fatigue
Remove wastes and impurities
Improve your immune system
Relieve pain and joint stiffness
Increase blood circulation
Strengthen the cardiovascular system
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System relieve pain?
A. The FIR heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. Many people use FIR heat as a successful way to help alleviate the pain or discomfort of arthritis, rheumatism and muscle spasms.
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System control weight?
A. Perspiring is part of the complex thermo-regulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. The process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water soluble at 110?F and the body sweats out fats and toxins.
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System provide the same effects of exercise?
A. The heart receives a workout similar to a 6-mile run in a 20-30 minute Sudatonic™™ Infrared blanket session and the body perspires the same amount as a 6-mile run. Infrared blankets are perfect for those that do not have time for regular exercise or suffer from injuries that inhibit rigorous activity.
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System eliminate toxins?
A. Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel) and mercury accumulate in the body during modern daily life. The body eliminates most toxins naturally by sweating but the process is sometimes too slow. Infrared heat stimulates the sweat glands that cleanse and detoxify the skin. The FIR heat technology simply speeds up the body's natural process!
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System improve the immune system?
A. Most illnesses are accompanied by a fever. During a fever, the body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. Often misunderstood, this rise in temperature is a natural stage of the immune system's healing process and is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwelcome visitors. The immune system weakens the hold of viruses and bacterial growth. FIR heat induces an "artificial fever" by heating up the body but without the pains of an illness. Subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the "artificial fever". Recent studies also show that colds and flu-like illnesses are reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages with FIR heat.
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System reduce stress?
A. Infrared heat therapy loosens muscles and relaxes the body prior to a massage. Many massage therapists use infrared heat to provide more thorough and effective massages.
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System benefit my skin?
A. Infrared heat improves circulation, expels dirt & chemicals and removes dead cells on the surface of the skin. All of these benefits lead to a more soft and firm complexion.
LED (Light Emitting Diode) therapy utilizes the concept of multiple wavelengths of light energy being sent through the skin to create heat in the dermis in order to stimulate cellular activity, also known as, ATP synthesis. This process has been proven to naturally increase the production of collagen, in addition to, the level of blood circulation.
An enhanced formation of new capillaries and improved production of collagen will mean smoother, firmer, more youthful, radiant looking skin.
In addition to lessening fine lines and wrinkles, LED Therapy is also known to address common skin care issues, such as: Acne, Broken Capillaries, Age Spots, Rosacea and Melasma.
This facial treatment is non-invasive, which means there’s no down time and treatments typically take between 35 and 60 minutes from beginning to end, depending on the issue/s being addressed.
Studies show that anti-aging results from LED therapy can be delayed between sixty and one-hundred-eighty days due to the time it takes for collagen to form and accumulate. Bear in mind that results will vary depending on severity of the issue, age, lifestyle as well as consistency of treatments.
Please call me at 909.989.6462 if you would like to schedule your LED facial treatment now.

I think chemical peels are great and not just because they are part of my repertoire as an esthetician. I like to think of chemical peels as a “reboot” for your skin allowing healthy skin appear. A series of chemical peels can help treat a myriad of skin issues. There really is no reason not to try one.
This post addresses the issue of chemical peels performed by estheticians. There are plenty of “peels” that are available for home use. Peels that you use at home provide very superficial peeling, simply exfoliation, and can help you maintain even toned, healthy skin. Chemical peels performed by estheticians have a lower pH than home use products so that they can penetrate much deeper into the skin, will normally cause you to turn red, a lot of time your skin will peel following a peel, and these peels, when performed in a series, can treatment skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation and acne. Simply put – a chemical peel performed by an esthetician will do a lot more for your skin than a home use product called a peel.
What Are Chemical Peels?
There are many different types of chemical peels, and each company that sells peels has its own series of formulations. Having said that the chemical peels used by estheticians are generally a solution that has a combination or sometimes just one alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) or beta hydroxy acid (BHA). The solution is applied to the skin, normally in layers though some peels are simply one layer, like a treatment mask. The peel is either removed at the end of the treatment or left on to self-neutralize. The acids in the peel work to dissolve the top layers of the skin creating a controlled wound and thus allowing the skin to regenerate itself.
Reasons to get a Chemical Peel
A chemical peel will:
Improve the texture of your skin
Increase the cell turnover rate of your skin
Improve your skin’s ability to hold moisture
Help your skin produce more collagen
Reduce fine lines
Unclog pores and help clear up acne
Leave your skin smooth
Make your skin softer
Make your skin look more even-toned
Give you a “glow”
Make your skin look dewy
Improve minor scarring
A chemical peel cannot make dramatic improvements to deep wrinkles or very sagging skin. Conditions like that need to be treated with lasers or cosmetic surgery.
Who Can Get a Chemical Peel?
Truthfully pretty much anyone can get a peel as long as they don’t have any of the contraindictions listed below for peels. Generally people with darker skin need to take more precautions before getting a peel and must make sure that the peel they are receiving is formulated for their skin type. The reason for this is that very strong chemical peels can actually cause more hyperpigmentation on darker skin.
Contraindications: It is generally recommended that pregnant and nursing women not receive peels since there are no studies, as of yet, about the effects of peels on fetuses or nursing babies. You cannot get a peel if you have been off Accutane for less than 6 months. If you are prone to cold sores a peel can actually bring on an outbreak so you need to take anti-viral medication before, the day of, and the day after your treatment. Also if you have a tendency to scar, are taking antibiotics, have cancer or an autoimmune disease, or have an open sore you cannot get a chemical peel.
Everyone’s skin will be more sensitive to sunlight following a peel so make sure that you have plenty of sunscreen on hand after your peel, and be sure to vigilantly apply and reapply your sunscreen after a peel. Hopefully the esthetician who performed the peel will either include post-peel products in the price of the peel or have them available for purchase at a reasonable price.
Make sure that the esthetician who is performing the peel has asked you an extensive list of questions before going ahead with your peel. An esthetician must keep many factors in mind before performing a peel so that the client gets the best possible result with the fewest possible side effects. You will be asked questions about medical conditions, allergies, the products you are currently using, and the results you want to achieve. You may also want to go with a lighter peel the first time you get a chemical peel and build up the strength of your peels from there. All of these issues should be discussed with your esthetician before you receive your first peel.
How Are Peels Performed?
Before you get a peel you should exfoliate at home or have a professional microdermabrasion treatment so that your skin in properly prepped for the peel. Your skin will be cleansed and “degreased” before the peel is actually applied. This means that all surface oils and debris are removed so that the peel can penetrate properly.
How Does It Feel?
Generally you will feel a warmth over the area being peeled during the procedure. The esthetician performing the peel will either fan the area being peeled or provide you with a small electric fan to hold over the area. You may feel stinging, burning, and even itching while the peel in performed. Those sensations will stop once the peel is over. Your esthetician will check in with you throughout the peel so if you ever feel any great discomfort she or he will know to stop the peel immediately.
What to Expect After a Peel
As I already mentioned first and foremost your skin will be quite sensitive to the sun following a peel so be extra vigilant about sunscreen use following your peel. Because of this it usually isn’t a good idea to get peels in the summer or right before going on a vacation to a warm climate.
Following a peel your skin will feel tight and then a little dry. You may remain red for an hour or so following the peel. If you peel after the chemical peel treatment peeling will begin approximately 3 to 5 days following your peel. The extent of peeling varies according to the person and the depth of the peel. Not everyone peels following a chemical peel actually. Some people have some mild itching following their peels.
Keep In Mind
Because chemical peels are stimulating you actually need to modify your lifestyle behavior slightly following a peel so that you don’t cause any unneeded irritation or hyperpigmentation to your skin. So following a peel avoid excessive exercise with sweating for a few days. Don’t scrub or pick at your face. You cannot use retinol products or AHA products for at least 10 days following your peel. And avoid any sort of excessive heat source like a sauna or hot tub.
How Often Can You Get a Chemical Peel?
Generally it is best to get a peel every four to six weeks. But if you suffer from acne there are some peels that you can do every two weeks until you get the results you want. Generally it is a great idea to buy a series of four or five peels up front so that you can achieve the treatment results that you want. Also when you buy a series of peels upfront you will probably receive a discount. Consider buying a deal that allows you to get chemical peels interspersed with microdermabrasion treatments or facials. The microdermabrasions and the facials will enhance the results of the peel by helping to exfoliate the flaky skin you have on your face. These treatments will also help prep your skin for your next peel.
When Will You See Results?
Truthfully chemical peels can be a bit unpredictable. Some people see results as little as 10 days after their peels. Other people won’t see results until about three weeks following their peel. And for people who receive many facial treatments a chemical peel may just enhance the normal way their skin always looks.
As you all know, I have been doing individual eyelash extensions for years now but I have recently decided to join the NOVALASH Extensionta family! I am so excited to show you the difference that this company has brought to the table compared to most of its competition.
I am currently offering a special for $85 for a FULL SET of NOVALASH Eyelash Extensions.
Award-winning, long-lasting, medical-grade lash extension adhesives have earned NovaLash its reputation as “the healthiest” professional eyelash extension system. Comprised of a wide-ranging palette of colors, textures and sizes of eyelash extensions that can be combined for looks that run the gamut from subtle and natural to trendy and glamorous; each lash application is a work of art with an intricate finish.
As the industry leader, NovaLash offers superior lash extension education and training to its most talented and dedicated lash artists, and superior products and service to its clients.

“NovaLash eyelash extensions are an “instant pretty” for any woman who desires for longer, fuller lashes. NovaLash eyelash extensions are meticulously applied lash-by-lash, bonded with award-winning medical-grade adhesives, by certified professional NovaLash stylists. They are weightless, wonderful and truly transformative.” - Sophy Merszei, CEO of NovaLash Eyelash Extensions.
1) What are Novalash eyelash extensions?
NovaLash Lash Extensions are a glamorous new way to extend the length and thickness of natural eyelashes, and are a practical, convenient and beautiful alternative to the daily use of mascara. Unlike decades-old, traditional false lashes, lash extensions are the first innovation in lash lengthening that can be worn daily, without nightly removal. Because each tapered, synthetic lash is bonded to a single natural lash, the final result is of effortless glamour and difficult to detect even close up.
2) How long do they last?
When properly applied, using Platinum Bond Adhesive, NovaLash lash extensions can be worn throughout the year with minimal monthly maintenance. Touch-ups are recommended after the initial full set application to refill any lashes that have cycled out. To maintain the full, thick appearance of a new set of lashes a visit to your beauty/lash professional is recommended every 4 weeks based on your own natural lash growth cycle.
3) Can lash extensions harm natural lashes?
When applied properly, lash extensions will not harm natural lashes. The NovaLash application technique allows natural lashes to grow and thrive with extensions. This technique requires several different “separation” steps during the application process so each extension is adhered to a single natural lash in order to prevent interruption of the lash growth cycle.
4) Can mascara be used with lash extensions?
Mascara is typically not needed with lash extensions. Mascara should only be used when a touch-up is drawing near. Water-soluble mascara can be worn; however constant use of mascara may shorten the life span of lashes. Waterproof mascara is not recommended for use, as it will dissolve the bond with the lashes. NovaLash glycol and carbonate free mascara is specifically formulated for use on extensions without interfering with the adhesive.
5) Once applied, what is the proper way to care for lashes?
Nightly conditioning is necessary to maximize the life of the extensions. NovaLash’s nighttime conditioning/cleansing pads are perfect for cleaning the lashes free of any makeup or debris while moisturizing the lashes to maintain flexibility. Using a lash wand to comb the lashes free of tangles is also recommended. You should not leave a hair salon without top of the line hair products – same with your lashes!
6) How long will this procedure take?
Between 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on your natural lashes. Difficult or very thick natural lashes may take a little longer. Most clients fall asleep waking up lashed!
7) Can I Swim with eyelash extensions on?
Absolutely! You may do anything and everything that you normally do. The extensions hold a permanent curl even when wet. Showering or swimming will not change the look, making them ideal for vacation. Just be aware of them.
