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.

If this is the case, a complete 3D Microblading session may be necessary. This refresher can be booked within 6 weeks to 12 months following initial procedure.
Taking necessary precautions prior to treatment will ensure that your treatment can be performed safely and effectively.
1. Cleanse and moisturize morning and evening. Use a PRE CLEANSER such as our Glô Therapeutics Gentle Cream Cleanser in the evenings over your brow area.
2. AVOID caffeinated beverages 2 hours prior to appointment as this can cause skin sensitivity.
3. DO NOT consume alcohol 12 hours prior to scheduled appointment as this can cause excessive bleeding and sensitivity during treatment.
4. Apply SPF over brow area before sun exposure. AVOID direct sunlight and extended sun exposure.
5. DO NOT take the following medications/ supplements during the 72 hours leading up to your procedure: **Consult and report with your physician prior to stopping medication**
6. Direct contact with water will need to be avoided for 72 hours following your procedure; therefore make sure to wash your hair prior to your appointment.
The following guide will help you care for your fresh brows and ensure you achieve best results. Your brows may feel sore and bruised immediately following your procedure; this usually dissipates within 12 hours.
Follow the POST-TREATMENT GUIDE until your brows have completely flaked and healed. The healing process can take up to 10 days and varies with each individual.
1. Hot temperatures will irritate your brows during the first 12 hours, therefore remain indoors and fan if necessary.
2. DO NOT touch brow with unwashed hands, doing so can cause infection.
3. DO NOT soak brows. Showers and baths are safe; keep your brows away from direct water contact as this may cause color to fade.
4. Face washing and moisturizing instructions:
Gently cleanse lower half and forehead with your daily cleanser in the morning. When rinsing cleanser, use a warm face cloth avoiding drip from forehead onto brows.
Dampen a clean gauze or cotton pad with the POST CLEANSER and gently wipe brows in outward motion. Blot dry with dry gauze/pad.
Once your brows begin scab or flake, apply a small amount of the POST CREAM over the brows after washing in the morning and evening.
5. DO NOT use ANY makeup or SPF directly over the brow area until brows have completely healed. This may alter color tone or blur strokes.
6. AVOID direct sunlight, this can cause the pigment to fade and irritate the skin.
7. DO NOT pick or lift scabs or flakes from brows, this may pull the pigment prematurely causing fading or gaps in strokes.
8. Brow can be lightly tweezed around area treated but not directly over for 3 weeks. Waxing procedure can be performed 4 weeks following procedure.

Microblading is a semi-permanent brow treatment that requires minimum down time. Healing can take up to 10 days and varies with each individual.
You may encounter the following indications as you heal:
The procedure involves the technician making tiny incisions 2-3 layers into the skin, using a microblading tool. Your skin’s natural response to this action is bleeding from the site of incision; the amount of bleeding depends on your skin and any underlying conditions.
As the procedure carries on, the blood becomes thickened and soon forms a clot. This process is known as coagulation and it is your bodies’ way of blocking the flow of blood. This thickened blood then forms the scab that encloses the small incisions and protects them during the early stages of healing. At this point your brows begin to look darker and may appear raised due to the scabs forming.
Swelling and Secretion
Following your procedure you may experience slight swelling and secretion in the treated area. The swelling is a response to the increased blood and fluid circulating in the wound. Blood has many components that carry vital nutrients, antibodies, oxygen, and hormones to the fresh wound. The plasma component of the blood aids in clotting and also moves waste material away from the wound during the healing.
You may experience slight secretion of clear fluid from your brows; this is normal and begins to subside within 24 hours following your procedure. If necessary you can gently blot the brows with a clean gauze or tissue to absorb the excess fluid. Cleanse the brow area twice daily by first dabbing them clean using a dampened cotton or gauze pad. Then, lightly rub a dab of your cleanser over the brows using your ring fingers only, gently blot away cleanser using clean dampened cotton or gauze pad. Apply moisturizer daily and as needed throughout the day to prevent excessive drying and provide added protection. Remember to wash your hands before cleaning your brows ☺
Growth and Repair
During the growth and recovery stage, the scabs that protected the open wound will begin to shed thereby exposing fragile skin. The overall brow colour will appear patchy as the dark scabs fall revealing the lighter tone underneath. The exposed skin may appear thinner and slightly pink while it is re-building.
Your skin forms a network of collagen fibres that support the new layers of skin cells, as the new skin layers build, the pink colouring will fade along with the pigment of your brows. The length of time the skin takes to build back the layers of skin ranges depending on the overall health of the skin prior to procedure and how closely post-care instructions are followed. In most cases the growth and repair process ranges from 4-12 weeks. A cooling mask, such as the Cucumber Recovery Mask can help nourish and soothe the fresh cells after your microblading has fully shed.
Recovery and Refresher
Once your brows have fully recovered, the pigment will once again resurface revealing their true colour, the strokes will also appear more defined and realistic. It is recommended that you wait until all visible signs of the healing process have subsided before following up with your Refresher session.
Daily application of a serum, such as the Corrective Soothing serum after moisturizing strengthens the skin and accelerates the recovery process. Tracking your progress on a weekly basis during the recovery period will ensure that your microblading is healing as expected and provide the necessary information for your technician when selecting a date for your Refresher session.
Ensure you book your Refresher before your brows reach a 40% fade. A minimum of 40% of the initial shape must be present for your Refresher. This time varies per person. Overextending the re-booking period may cause you to lose the outlining shape from your initial session for the technician to follow. If this is the case a complete microblading session may be necessary.
