LASHES

Liv Lashes (mink or silk) are expertly crafted to appear natural-looking, and last up to 3 months with proper care & refill maintenance! The technique used will create a more full, & luscious look. Up to 3 faux lashes can be applied to an individual lash to create beautiful, outlined eyes. This allows us to customize each lash application to suit your look - even if you naturally have thinner lashes! Choose between a range of styles which vary in density, length, and color - Mermaid Lashes!

Receiving the proper volume technique is important!

Please do your research and only choose qualified and experienced technicians to apply your volume set.

Waxing

Waxing frequently brightens dark areas, smooths skin, and allows thinner hair growth. This makes your experience  less stimulating as you go! we use a combination of soft, film and chemical-free waxes to ensure a great and gentle service. 

For best results, our estheticians recommend waxing every 2-4 weeks (varies per person & area) between each appointment. 

To ensure a successful waxing experience, please read and follow these instructions:

If you are currently using or experiencing any of the following, please inform your technician. These products can make the skin more sensitive. Thin, sensitive skin is more vulnerable to lifting and sensitivity during waxing.

  • Accutane
  • Differin
  • Birth Control
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer or Chemo patients
  • Antibiotics
  • Lupus
  • Varicose Veins
  • Cold Sores / Herpes Simplex Virus
  • Botox or Collagen injections within 7 days

PRECAUTIONS & CONSIDERATIONS: Please read these valuable guidelines:

  • Hair must be at least 3/4 inches for best results.
  • Sunburned, irritated or areas with open skin cannot be waxed.
  • Moles cannot be waxed.
  • You must wait a minimum of seven (7) days before waxing after a light chemical peel or Microdermabrasion.
  • Waxing cannot be performed if you have been in a tanning booth the same day.
  • Waxing cannot be performed if you have had laser skin resurfacing within the past year.
  • Waxing cannot be performed if you have had a physician administered peel within the past two (2) years.
  • If irritation should occur, recommend you use an antibiotic ointment such as Neosporin to keep the area continually moist to avoid infection and scabbing.
  • No sun/tanning booths for 2 days following a waxing treatment. Extra precaution should be taken if using tanning accelerators. Wait 2-3 days to wax before/after tanning with accelerators.
  • No hot baths for 24 hours following a body waxing treatment.
  • No abrasives for 24 hours following a waxing treatment.
  • No deodorants for 24 hours following an underarm waxing treatment.
  • Women may experience extra sensitivity to waxing up to a week prior to the beginning of their menstrual cycle.

 


Facials

Maintaining a proper skincare routine is the key to glowing & healthy skin. Cleansing, toning and moisturizing twice per day is highly recommended! Exfoliating and applying a masque is also ESSENTIAL! (2-3 times per week) Our facials are designed to kickstart your journey to healthy skin. Enjoy a variety of organic skincare ingredients, along with effective skincare techniques. We recommend a facial every 3-4 weeks to KEEP your skin looking it's best.

Contraindications that prevent a facial treatment: 

Viruses such as:

  • Colds
  • Cold sores
  • Warts
  • Bacterial infections ( impetigo, boils, conjunctivitis, styes)
  • Fungal infections (ringworm, blepharitis)
  • Undiagnosed lumps or swelling
  • Known sensitivity or allergy to products 

Immediate aftercare:

The skin has been deep cleansed, stimulated and nourished. No aftercare is needed except to leave it alone. Avoid picking, squeezing pimples or touching the area.

Do not apply make-up for at least 8 hours if possible, Avoid any further overstimulation and heat treatments for at least 12 hours, Avoid highly perfumed products, No depilation (hair removal) should take place after a facial, If any rash, irritation or itching occurs just apply a cool compress to the area.

Contraindications for massage:

  • Fever: Massage increases overall circulation and could therefore work against your body's natural defenses.
  • Inflammation: Massage can further irritate an area of inflammation, so you should not administer it. Inflamed conditions include phlebitis (inflammation of a vein), dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), arthritis (inflammation of the joints), and so on. In the case of localized problems, you can still massage around them, however, avoiding the inflammation itself.
  • High blood pressure: High blood pressure means excessive pressure against blood vessel walls. Massage affects the blood vessels, and so people with high blood pressure or a heart condition should receive light, sedating massages, if at all.
  • Infectious diseases: Massage is not a good idea for someone coming down with the flu or diphtheria, for example, and to make matters worse, you expose yourself to the virus as well.
  • Hernia: Hernias are protrusions of part of an organ (such as the intestines) through a muscular wall. It's not a good idea to try to push these organs back inside. Surgery works better.
  • Osteoporosis: Elderly people with a severe stoop to the shoulders often have this condition, in which bones become porous, brittle, and fragile. Massage may be too intense for this condition.
  • Varicose veins: Massage directly over varicose veins can worsen the problem. However, if you apply a very light massage next to the problem, always in a direction toward the heart, it can be very beneficial.
  • Broken bones: A little light massage to the surrounding areas, though, can improve circulation and be quite helpful.
  • Skin problems: You should avoid anything that looks like it shouldn't be there, such as rashes, wounds, bruises, burns, boils, and blisters, for example. Usually these problems are local, so you can still massage in other areas.
  • Cancer: Cancer can spread through the lymphatic system, and because massage increases lymphatic circulation, it may potentially spread the disease as well. Simple, caring touch is fine, but massage strokes that stimulate circulation are not. Always check with a doctor first, or bring a doctor's note when being serviced.
