Known as the red carpet facial, the microcurrent is a facial that uses a mild electrical current very similar to what our bodies generate. An injured or damaged area disrupts the natural flow of electricity through the tissue, and when the microcurrent is applied, it has the ability to restore the lost energy to that area. It is a great option to add to any facial treatment.
LED LIGHT EMITTING DIODES
“Light Emitting Diodes,” or LED, is a non-invasive, painless, and safe skin treatment approved by the FDA. Specific wavelengths of colored light energy safely penetrate your skin, producing optimal skin rejuvenation at the cellular level. After the LED treatment, your skin will look and feel firm, rejuvenated and youthful. In addition, skin will be more hydrated, smoother, and it will have a natural radiant glow.
“Threading” is an age old eastern skill for removing hair from the skin with little or no damage or risk of hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) that can be caused from waxing. This method not only gets rid of dark coarse hair, but is also excellent for fine blonde hairs that can escape waxing and lasers.
Your skin should be cleansed and then a very thin thread is held in the esthetician’s hands and twirled in such a way to remove hair quickly. You will feel a slight pinching sensation. Threading usually leaves the skin with a smooth texture. Occasionally, some sensitive individuals may experience a few acne breakouts or very small superficial abrasions. These are rare and temporary.
Hair growth usually will also decrease after several treatments. One usually receives treatment every 5 to 8 weeks, depending on hair growth.
