Frequently Asked Q& A's 

 

Using the beautiful French line Sothys, we treat all different skin concerns from the most sensitive skins to acne, rosacea, sun damaged, dry, oily, aging skins.

Depending on your skin condition and concern we will always personalise and do the treatment we feel will give you the best results possible. 

Do we do extractions?- YES if you are looking for a place that does deep cleaning facials, you have found the right spot! If you are wanting blackheads or milia removed (little white heads), we can do this as long as its in a spot where is safe to remove and does not cause damage to the skin! 

What is microdermabraion? Microdermabrasion is a machine that enables us to give a thorough exfoliation of the top layer of your skin. It feels like a vacuums across the skin. 

This helps with pretty much all skin types and concerns including acne, pigmentation, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin is left to feel soft and  replenished for days later with no downtime. 

What are peels- we do several different peels depending on your skin type- however peels are great for those suffering with acne, scarring, pigmentation or just aged, dry or dull skin. We will always start with our Level one peel and go from there and this can be combined with the microdermabrasion to give your skin that glow you were looking for! 

LED In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis. All this being said- the LED makes for a great add on to any of our facials! 

From your basic booster facial, peels, to the leading Diamond head microdermabrasion system, our facials are personalised to your skin to offer a results driven treatments, each and every visit.

Before you come in there are a few simple steps to ensure your skin is its best for the tan. 

7 days before the tan-

Exfoliate  all over really well (especially knees, ankles and elbows) the week leading up to having the tan. Ensure you are moisturising your skin at least once a day. 

Night before make sure you shave any usual areas 

Day of the tan-

 Make sure you come to your tanning appointment freshly showered if possible. 

Ensure you have no moisturiser or deodorant or perfume on. 

Wear loose fitting clothing- we have tanning dresses available from $25- 60 if you are wanting something more fashionable  

Underwear- we have disposable g'string, however if you choose to wear your own ensure they are dark colours or older ones you don't care too much about. 

After the Tan- 

Leave on for the time advised by your therapist before taking a warm shower to remove the bronzer, try not to use soap.

DON'T freak out if you feel you have washed your tan away- it takes 12-15 hours to fully develop! 

 

Spray Tans 

What is a lash lift? It's like a perm (but without chemicals like parabens or formaldehyde), for your natural eyelashes. It uplifts and curls them from the base of the lash, making them stand out and look longer. It's often paired with an eyelash tint, to enhance the defining effect. It is a great alternative to eyelash extensions, as it requires very little maintenance and has long lasting results.

Who is the ideal client for this treatment? 

 

Anyone who is time poor and doesn’t have time to put mascara on or anyone wanting a defined look without the need of extensions. Many of our clients have had extensions and found they ruin their lashes so have this done as an alternative 

 

How long will it last for? 

Most clients get anywhere from 6-12 weeks, it just depends on the lashes natural growth cycle! 

 

Can I go swimming with it? 

The lash lift is perfect for those who love the water which makes it the perfect treatment for anyone going on holidays or honeymoons

 

Will it ruin my lashes?

Like any colouring or perming treatment you may find the lashes feel dryer- this can be avoided by using the elleplex treatment afterwards ($39) or adding the lash Botox onto the lash lift (a keratin and collagen treatment) 

 

How do I get naturally longer lashes-

There are so many products out there in the market however we recommend eyenvy lash conditioner- every single client who uses this gets longer, thicker lashes, so we know this works and go as far as to put a 100% guarantee you will get results if you use it every day for 3 months! 

Lash Lift & Tint 

Henna works on the hair and skin structure is incredibly unique in comparison to tinting. Tinting uses an oxidant to open the cuticle of the hair and allows colour to penetrate the brow hairs cortex through the oxidation process. Henna on the other hand, acts like a blanket over the hair and provides a coating to the hair shaft, coating the top layers of the hair cuticle only.  As the brow cuticle has a scale like finish this coating smooths out the finish, almost like buffing out the hair imperfections to give the appearance of a thicker, softer and smoother hair and eyebrow.

 

Our vegan and cruelty free formula contains hydrolysed proteins, vitamin complex and anti-oxidants. Henna helps to strengthen and restore hair growth and improves the natural condition of the eyebrow hair. This makes it perfect for people who have sparse, over plucked brows or are still recovering from a nightmare waxing experience.

 

Lasting up to 7- 14 days on the skin and 4-6 weeks on the hair,  Henna is a gentle formulation containing no ammonia, lead or peroxide which helps to minimise the body’s natural absorption of nasties.
