Dermaplaning at Rejuvenate Rx

Our clients absolutely love dermaplaning!

Dermaplaning is a great way to exfoliate down to newer skin using a fine blade to remove old skin cells.   Although it is a very effective treatment, few people are aware of this technique and fewer practitioners perform it.   Dermaplaning requires medical equipment and specialized training to perform properly.

Despite the skill set needed to perform it, dermaplaning is a very simple, safe and effective treatment.  Nowadays, many medical estheticians and physicians choose dermaplaning as their method of choice for clinical exfoliation.   This technique also allows  superior product penetration when coupled with other medical-grade exfoliation procedures.  As an added bonus say “Good-bye” to facial fuzz and “Hello” to gorgeous makeup.

Want to improve texture, tone, pigmentation, hydration and fine lines all in one treatment?  Dermaplaning is outstanding by itself however at Rejuvenate Rx we use it principally as the first step in our rejuvenating treatment known as the SkinCeuticals MicroPeel.    Come in to try this premier anti-aging corrective skin care treatment (affectionately known as “the peel without any peeling.”) There is no downtime; your skin will not be red or irritated and the results are spectacular.

Consultations are complimentary.  Come in and see us or call (509)290-6149 to find out more.

Bikini Waxing

So Many Hairs, So Many Technicians! How to Choose the Right Bikini-Waxing Experience
One of the many services we provide here at Rejuvenate Rx is waxing. Our seasoned experts have fine-tuned what is needed to have an exceptional waxing experience. We know that there are many other local businesses offering this delicate service so we thought to help you distinguish the best standards as you seek out where and if you should wax– especially now that bathing suit season is upon us.
Before you set foot in a treatment room there are a couple things you can do to ensure your best results:
1. Exfoliate the bikini area beforehand using light, upward motions to release trapped hairs that can be forced back into the skin.
2. Stop shaving– ¼ inch hair length is ideal.
3. Discontinue Retinol products for 3 days prior to your appointment and inform your provider that you are using Retinol.

Once you are in the treatment receiving your waxing service, please make sure your choice is a safe one by paying attention to how your technician is performing the task:
• Sanitation is first and foremost. Bacteria can be transferred through waxing which can cause serious infections such as Staph or even MRSA.
• Gloves are a must when waxing the pubic region.
• Once the wax has been applied to the skin, the same stick should never be re-dipped into the wax.

Pain management is a concern that should be managed including quick wax removal followed by pressing on the area as soon as the wax has been lifted. The technician should use a product to soothe the skin and protect it after the treatment.

A post-treatment product regimen is ideal to use at home to help you avoid the inflammation of ingrown hairs. At Rejuvenate Rx, we offer the products below as homecare during your 3-4 weeks of grow out (1/4 inch is ideal) until you are ready for the next session.

Nose-waxing Newsflash for Men and Women

As we get older, hair starts to grow in all sorts of places that one could consider unsightly.  Unfortunately, this hair can also be difficult to remove.  Nose hair is a very common area of unwanted extra hair growth.  This can be improved by waxing the hair instead of using alternative methods. Although you have other ways of removing nose hair, waxing truly makes the most sense.

Nose-hair trimmer. This will give you quick results but you will be left with stubble and the hair will begin to grow back almost immediately.

Scissors: With this option you are again left with stubble and the hair grows back quickly as well. Accidental cuts are common.

Hair removal creams: Not recommended for the nose due to a high probability of chemical burns in the nostril and respiratory side effects.

Tweezers: Ouch! This will take a long time if you are removing a large amount of hair. It will also be painful as you are pulling hairs out one at a time or a few at a time at best.

Electrolysis:  This involves a needle that penetrates the skin and is placed next to the hair follicle. It then sends an electric current to destroy the root and the dead hair must then be tweezed. The needle must be inserted into every single hair follicle which is hard to do with a small area such as the nose.  Prepare for hours of pain.

Waxing: This procedure literally takes about a minute per nostril. You get long-lasting results because the hair is removed in its entirety. A new hair must grow back in its place which will take weeks.  Our esthetician has great technique for this procedure—don’t watch internet videos, she uses a very different technique which we would be happy to explain to you on the phone or in person.

Instead of incorporating a hair removal method that requires everyday management, choose waxing and get back living life without worrying about those unattractive nose hairs. Kim Jarrell our licensed esthetician at Rejuvenate Rx is well-known for her gentle touch and expertise in waxing.  Make an appointment for services or complimentary consultation at (509)290-6149.
