Runner up is the photofacial, more specifically, the ACLARA.
ACLARA removes hyper pigmentation caused by sun damage, aging, and acne scarring.
Photofacials change your skin in ways a facial cannot. For example, while a facial can clean pores, it cannot shrink them. The ALISA photofacial can. Photofacials are the next step up from a facial and are great for anti-aging.

LASH LIFT Q & A
Q: What is a LASH LIFT? A: Lash lifts are a gentle form of lash perming that curls the natural lashes along the lash line. It gives the appearance of longer more feminine lashes.
Q: How does it work? A: The first step is to open the bonds in the hair, giving flexibility within the mid shaft where the curl is found. The second step sets the lashes into position and seals the hair shaft. The third step reintroduces moisture back into the lashes.
Q: How long does it last? A: Lash lifts can last up to 12 weeks. This depends on after-care products used and thickness of lashes. Gentle products are recommended on eye area and minimal rubbing. Thick lashes are more resistant and will fall faster than thin lashes.
Q: Will the lash lift damage my lashes? A: It is recommend that clients wait 12 weeks between lash lifts. This allows you hair to recover and regenerate new growth. EyEnvy will condition and hydrate hair follicles for stronger-than-ever lashes.
Q: How do I care for my lashes following the treatment? A: You must avoid water, makeup, and pressure on the lashes for 48hrs. Afterwards you can return to your regular routine and products. It is recommended to sleep on your back in order to avoid bending the lashes overnight. Using a lash comb to lift and operate the lashes will help set.
Q: Are there any allergies I must be aware of? A: It is rare for reactions to occur as the products are kept strictly on the lashes.
who have sensitivity to latex are not recommended to have the procedure, as the adhesive used does contain latex.
If you have ever reacted to artificial lash glue used for strip lashes, you are at risk of having a reaction.
Typical allergic reaction will cause the eyes to swell for up to 72 hours.
Whether your skin type is dry, oily, or combination, typically, after moving to Alberta, your skin becomes extremely dry in some areas, and extremely oily in others, and suddenly your skin is breaking out.
The reason for this is that Alberta has a very dry, arid climate. What happens is the skin becomes dehydrated which means it lacks water. In order to compensate for that water loss, your skin will elevate its oil production. Plus, this dehydration causes a build-up of dead and dry skin at the surface.
Build up will block products from getting into the fresh skin that really needs that hydration.
Rather than increasing the consistency of your moisturizer, like going for a thicker cream, or an oil-based product, you should be focusing on exfoliating using gentle daily exfoliants, such as the Gentle Enzyme Exfoliant, or the Daily Polishing Cleanser.
Follow up with hydrating moisturizer, such as the
Conditioning Hydration, or the
Oil Free Moisturizer, for those that tend to be a bit oilier. A facial is an excellent way to extract buildup and start with a clean slate. And who can say no to a day at the spa? ;)

Q: My skin is normally clear, but lately I have been experiencing small bumps throughout my cheek and chin area. What can I do to get rid of this issue?
A: You start by having a pore extraction facial to pull the “bumps” (comedones and blackheads) out of your skin. This process involves thorough cleansing and light resurfacing, before an ozone steaming session. The steam opens the pores and softens the surface of the skin making extractions a breeze. Blackheads and oil-build up are pulled out of the skin leaving your pores clear of visible debris. Closed comedones (whiteheads) are pierced with a small lancet allowing for trapped debris to be safely removed.
After having your skin purged of impurities, it is important to stick to a regular cleansing and nourishing routine. Start by cleansing with a cleanser containing the appropriate blend of ingredients suitable for your skin type. Double cleansing is recommended every evening so your skin can breath and absorb nutrients overnight. Moisturizer should be applied while the skin is still humid in order to seal in added hydration. Regardless of your skin type moisturizer is very important in maintaining a healthy balance in your skin.
You may have blemishes pop up over the following week, this is normal as all the impurities are making their way up to the surface. If you are confident with your extractions, you can gently extract these blemishes after cleansing and a steamy shower. Although, if you can’t get it in the first 2 attempts then let it be as this may cause bruising or damage to the skin.
Once your skin has made a full recovery after 4-6 days, your skin should look and feel smoother with minimized pore size. You can schedule your facial sessions 4-6 weeks apart and once you’ve cleared the excess, seasonal facial and home maintenance should be suffice.
