The chemicals used in skin peels are acids that are derived from natural sources. A peel involves chemically removing the outermost layers of the skin which in return promotes exfoliation and cell turnover. Depending on the type of peels used they can help treat fine lines, textural issues, acne, scarring, redness and provide a fresher, healthier appearance to the skin.
Chemical peels can be done on any area of the body, most commonly the face, neck, chest, hands and back.
Peels range in strength and have amazing benefits, however, they contain powerful peeling agents and have the ability to really hurt someone if not properly administered. Through a a proper consultation, your professional service provider will educate you about the peel and the expected outcomes including post treatment instructions.
Different peels can be mixed together and are known as blended peels. They can also be mixed with other ingredients such as vitamin c, hylauronic acid and dead sea minerals to pack an extra punch and provide a variety of additional benefits.
Whether you’d like to use peels as an anti aging method, or have a clear skin goal, your service provider can create a treatment plan customized for you.

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.

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.

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 recommended that clients wait 12 weeks between lash lifts. This allows your 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.
