Micro-Channeling is a minimally invasive skin treatment that targets and diminishes the appearance of visible wrinkles, unwanted acne scars, and sun-spots. During the treatment, Joanna creates tiny pinholes to the outermost layer of the skin promoting a natural healing response. The pinholes also function as micro-channels for quick absorption when the serum is applied to the skin. The serum activates collagen-producing cells in your body to increase collagen production and create permanent new healthy skin!
Micro-channeling may be used as a separate treatment only or as an additional add-on to other skin treatments to enhance the effectiveness of skin health. To get an idea, Hydrafacial or chemical peels are perfect treatments for Micro-channeling pairing.
I am interested, can you tell me more about the procedure?
I myself, love this procedure. I highly recommended Micro-channeling to all my clients that are looking to improve their skin health, in the least abrasive way.
The treatment requires the usage of a handheld device, lightly grazing across the skin using a stamping motion type of pattern. Unlike micro-needling, this instrument does not cause damage or trauma to the surface of the skin. These microscopic abrasions stimulate and produces new collagen and elastin.
After the stamping phase is complete, we apply a skin serum to target areas to nourish the skin and regenerate new skin cells. There will be some downtime during the recovery stage, but it should be no longer than a few days. You can do your face, arms, neck, and stomach to regenerate tighter healthier skin.
The skin serum that is applied is a well-formulated concoction contains the following ingredients with benefits. (take home an extra vile for $90)
Vitamins A, B5, C, E
Anti Wrinkle & Stimulate Collagen Production
Human Growth Factors
During your recovery stage, it is important to keep up with maintenance in order to maximize the result. I highly recommend applying Sorella’s Quench & Protect Hydrating SPF 30. (purchase this on your next visit $51)
Leaves skin deeply moisturized
Excellent makeup base
Provides both UVA/UVB protection
Provides pure physical sun protection
Be Comfortable & Confident in your skin
No one should feel insecure about their skin, but the reality is that we all are fighting the same battle. Whether it is signs of aging or acne scars, we get self-conscious about our skin. When you are ready to take matters into your own hands, call or book online with Joanna. Together we can redefine age. $360 a treatment or $260 when added to another facial treatment, ie: a Hydrafacial.
Our skin is constantly changing due to climate (changing seasons or vacationing) hormones or stress. Facial treatments can help slow down the aging process and prevent the appearance of wrinkles. These treatments can be as simple as a sound home care routine to professional exfoliant treatments, lymphatic drainage and hydrating treatments
If you are dedicated and committed to helping your skin health, home care is a big part of maintaining your skin. Any professional treatments will have less effect unless
you follow a good at home care routine. It can be as basic as a cleanser (cleansing twice on occasion), eye cream, a good hydrating serum or moisturizer (no matter if your dry or oily) and broad-spectrum sunscreen. If you want to help your skin cell turn over you can add in an exfoliate 1-2 times a week, this really helps bring blood to the surface, circulation and give you a nice glow.
Massaging your face with an anti-aging cream will immediately increase the blood circulation and oxygen flow, which promotes collagen production and enhances the elasticity of your skin. However, applying product to the outer layer of dead skin and peach fuzz is just a place for your product to hang out, inhibiting it from penetrating into your skin. Having your skin professionally exfoliated removes the grey layer of dry skin off your face so products can penetrate much better. Dermaplaning is a great way to exfoliate the first layer of dead skin plus the vellus hair (peach fuzz).
Peels and the Hydrafacial
I recommend monthly treatments to address areas of concern your skin. Fall is a really good time of year to start a peel series. I usually have my clients do a series of 3, every 4 weeks. Then maintain with a Hydrafacial membership, once a month to enhance your skin’s health. Hydrafacial is 3 steps and only 30 minutes, cleanse + peel (uncover a new layer of skin with a gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing), extract + hydrate (remove debris from pores with painless suction, nourish with intense moisturizers that quench the skin) and fuse + protect (saturate the skin with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow).
If you really want healthy, glowing skin and to fight the signs of aging I also recommend a Lymphatic Drainage facial which works to improve circulation, as well as detoxify, tone, and firm skin. We can work on the entire body, face, arms, back, legs.
And always always always don’t forget Sunscreen. SPF 30 is a must every morning. If you maintain your skin with a solid home care routine, professional treatments to maintain, address concerns and wear sunscreen daily you can reverse signs of aging. I am committed. Are you?
Today we have so many options to enhance our eyelashes: Lash Extensions, lash growth enhancers (serums), Keratin Lash treatments (or perms), false lashes (strip lashes), and mascara. Today I’d like to go over these options and see what suits you best!
Let’s start with my favorite, eyelash extensions. I have been doing lashes for over 12 years now and it has come a long way. You need to be realistic and careful when choosing a lash studio. If the lashes are not applied correctly it could damage your natural lashes and cause irritation to the lash line. Also, the adhesive is very important. I always recommend non-formaldehyde adhesive which allows you to wet your lashes after your lash appointment. If the tech tells you to keep your eye dry for a day this is because water will activate the formaldehyde causing a fume that can get into your eye. Make sure to always do your research when choosing a lash studio and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Novalash is the best brand of adhesive Platinum Bond and Sensitive as well ae the lashes.
Now the fun stuff, picking your lashes! You have options when choosing your lash extensions which come in different lengths, thickness and curls.
The classic extension (1 extension on 1 lash) gives you a natural lash line.
Volume lashes (3-6 very thin lashes made into a fan and placed on 1 of your lashes) are what I wear. This creates a full fluffy effect; it is triple the amount of lashes added to your lash line. It does not have to be a heavy look, can be very natural or very dramatic.
Cashmere lashes are similar to classic though the tips of the lash have been split.
Real mink hair (not to be confused with the brand minky lashes) are a natural thin lash. Although they do not hold their curl long they are real, natural and pretty.
Every person has a different amount of natural lashes on their lash line with different thickness. The application appointment is made for the general lash line. This is where I think women need to be realistic with the outcome. If you want the dramatic thick lash line it may take a longer appointment or possibly 2 appointments. Lash extensions need touch up appointments, as you lose your lashes and or extensions you will want to fill in the gaps.
Lash Growth Enhancers
Lash growth serums can be used while you wear lash extensions. There is a lot of different lash growth serums on the market and I believe they all work to some degree. This is a good option for people wanting the growth for long lashes.
We offer Lash Dr. by Novalsh and GrandeLash.
Yumilash Keratin Lash Treatment
A great solution for woman that have had a reaction to lash extensions or just don’t have time for the maintenance is the Keratin lash lift. This is a treatment curls your natural lashes up, opens your eye and gives you a nice curl for 2-3 months. You can add a few extensions if you need more or wear mascara. Yumilash is the best brand I have found from Paris for this treatment.
Lots of options for mascara now a days. They have primers to thicken up the lash, wands that separate the lash and fibers that add length. I still stay away from mascara due to the raccoon eye, it always makes its way to create a dark circle around my eye
