What does Microcurrent do?

  A microcurrent facial is often referred to as a “natural” facelift. This safe and painless facial helps erase fine lines and wrinkles while firming your skin and defining your features. It improves muscle tone, reduces puffiness, increases cellular activity, and tightens pores. The overall result is healthier and younger-looking skin, no matter your age.

What is the history of microcurrent technology?

  Microcurrent technology has been around since the 1800s as a treatment for damaged tissues and muscles. But when a physician of a Bell’s palsy patient noticed that the face of his patients appeared much smoother and younger-looking after receiving microcurrent therapy, one of the world’s first high-tech aesthetic treatments was born.

What is the Science behind Microcurrent?

  A microcurrent facial emits extremely low-voltage electrical currents (hence ‘micro’ current), which mirror your own body’s electrical currents, on a cellular level to repair damaged skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The intensity is so slight that it would take one million microcurrent machines to light a 40-watt light bulb.


This treatment is often referred to as “facial toning” because it’s like a workout for your face, whereby skin cells are broken down and then grow back stronger, the same way your muscles do after lifting weights.  It works simultaneously to repair a product collagen in the dermis, the deepest layer of your skin, while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis, the top layer of your skin. According to studies, a microcurrent facial can increase collagen production of up to 14%, elastin increases 48% and blood circulation goes up 38%.

What are henna brows?

  Henna brows are a form of eyebrow tinting that is used to stain the skin beneath the brow hairs. The purpose of this is to cast a shadow or create an illusion of depth and fullness in the area, visually filling in any sparseness.

Henna is a natural dye made from a plant known as Hina or the henna tree. Henna has been around since ancient Egyptian times when it was used for many purposes such as dyeing hair, clothes, fabrics, and makeup.


The process for henna brows is very similar to henna coloring methods you may see in traditional Indian culture, however, the shades have been formulated specifically replicate natural eyebrow tones.

How do henna brows compare to other temporary brow tints?

  Henna is a safe and natural alternative to tints and dyes. It is vegan-friendly and free from peroxide activators, making it a suitable option for anyone with sensitive skin.

Henna generally produces longer-lasting results and makes it a good stepping stone to more permanent eyebrow procedures.

Henna tinting is more effective for staining the skin compared with other forms of eyebrow tinting.

It will appear matte and fluffier than regular tinting. Traditional hair and brow dye will tint the hairs more effectively, whereas henna successfully grips the skin.

How long do henna brows last and how do you maintain them?

  The results of henna brows typically last between around 4 weeks, but it’s dependant on your skin type. If you have a dryer complexion, henna brows will tend to last a bit longer than they would on someone with an oily complexion.

  Henna works best on clients with healthy skin. Skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema will mean the henna won’t last as long. Freshly exfoliated skin is not ideal.

The more bow hair the better – people with little hair in their brows won’t see as long-lasting results.

What is Brow Lamination? 

  Brow lamination gives brow hair a uniform shape. It smooths out thin or bushy brows and lifts the hairs in a more upward direction. Whereas microblading gives you the illusion of fuller brows, brow lamination primarily works with the hairs you’ve already got.


What is the Brow Laminating Process?

  The process is quite simple. It starts with the application of a lift cream, which moves hairs into a specific direction. Next, brows are brushed in the desired shape and set with a hair neutralizer to keep it in place. Brows can then be tinted to add fullness and are then finished off with a nourishing brow oil.

How Long does Brow Lamination Last?

 It can also last as long as 8 weeks with proper care. 

Who should avoid brow Lamination?  

  People who are prone to breakouts or have eczema should avoid brow lamination because the chemicals used could lead to further irritation.

What is the aftercare for Brow Lamination? 

  Avoid wetting your brows for 24 hours. Brush brows daily and apply a nourishing brow oil to keep them moisturized.


What is a Lash Lift? 

  A lash lift is essentially a perm for your natural lashes, this relatively low-maintenance process lifts, and curls lashes.

Who is a Lash lift Perfect for?

Clients who don’t want or who can’t have extensions, those who are taking a break from extensions, those who love the gym or who are time-poor.

The lash lift usually takes around 1 ¼ hour in the salon and requires no maintenance, unlike extensions that require regular fills.

How Long Does a Lash Lift last?

  Up to eight weeks.

Repeat treatments can be carried out after at least six weeks, depending on the health of the natural lashes.
