Top Three Reasons for Dermaplaining

I started doing dermaplaining over a year ago and now I can’t live without it. This unique service gently exfoliates the epidermis all while removing unwanted hair.

In a nut shell, this teatment significantly improves the texture and look of the skin right away just by removing all the peach fuzzy hairs around the face and jawline. Once the hair and  dead skin cells  are removed with a medical grade scalpel, those epensive serums you’re using will be 50% more effective. Why you ask? Because now your serum is able to go directly into the freshly treated skin.

Flawless makeup application is just one side benefit of this inexpensive service. Foundation and bronzer glide on and there is no feathering and flaking!

Continued cell turnover from the exfoliation helps keep skin hydrated and plumped. Don’t forget to maintain your treatments with in home care from Lira!

The ABC’s of Microneedling

ANTI AGING

A 2015 study published by The International Journal of Dermatology confirmed that microneedling is in fact an effective way to achieve skin tightening. Collagen forms around the pore and plumps it, and because this treatment causes the skin to create collagen, pore size is reduced and the skin’s appearance becomes more youthful. Some experts even say that microneedling actually slows the aging process by causing the skin to thicken in response to the treatment.

BROWN SPOTS BE GONE

Because microneedling breaks up pigment without using heat, it is the ideal treatment for those of us with age spots from sunny days gone by. Melasma, which is what I had in the pictures above, is characterized by large brown spots and patches of discoloration. As you can see from my photos above, results are amazing. I had six treatments over the course of seven months, about once every four weeks, and used a combination of Vitiamin C and Hyaluronic Acid serums to penetrate the micro channels created by the needles.

COLLAGEN INDUCTION

Collagen Induction Therapy, which is microneedling, is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate, tighten and tone the skin. It is fast becoming the favored modality by skin care professionals because it is cost effective and delivers superior results. It can be used to correct a variety of skin issues such as scars, wrinkles, age spots and stretch marks. The results appear natural because the body’s own healing response is activated.

The Essential Oil Facial

o

I started using doTERRA oils a few years ago when I was in esthetics school with amazing results. Lavender, Melaluca and Frankincense are my main staples and I also use a lot of Hawaiian Sandalwood , Roman Chamomile and Cedarwood. These oils have been proven effective in supporting variety of health issues as well as topical benefits to the skin such as: tightening, soothing, calming, and cellular turnover.

In my treatment room, I use a variety of these oils to enhance your facial. And with all the positive feedback I’ve been getting from clients, I decided to create an essential oil facial with steam.

Using steam to open pores, I then do a deep tissue facial massage with selected oils added into a deep exfoliating product to relieve congested skin and sinuses. Oils are added to the cleanser , exfoliator, and finishing moisturizers to create a healing facial that will have you glowing.
