Choose the Right Waxing Experience

 

Bathing suit season is upon us! One of the many services we provide here at Rejuvenate Rx is waxing. Our seasoned experts have fine-tuned what it is to have an exceptional waxing experience.
Before you step foot in a treatment room there are a couple things you can do to take control over your best results:

1. Exfoliate your desired 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.

A post treatment kit is ideal to send home with to help you avoid the inflammation of ingrown hairs. At Rejuvenate –Rx we offer products as homecare during your 3-4 weeks of grow out (1/4 inch is ideal) until ready for the next session.
Rejuvenate Rx Post Care Recommendations:
Clarisonic Smart Profile- Head to toe exfoliation using Ultrasonic technology
Skinceuticals Blemish and Age Serum- antibacterial with anti-inflammatory properties
Skinceuticals Retinol.5- helps to prevent ingrown hair and breakouts

After a few regular waxing cycles your hair will get on same grow-out cycle. The more you do this service, the more you become desensitized. Your hair will grow back more sparse.
Our estheticians at Rejuvenate Rx are here Monday – Saturday to help you with all your waxing needs. Feel free to call us with any question or concerns. Let us show you what exceptional care is all about.

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.

Summer Skin Tips

Warm temperatures and longer days keep your mood light but acne flares can become an issue in the summertime.

Higher temperatures can increase facial oil production which can lead to clogged pores; contributing to black heads and breakouts.   Sweating also contributes to inflammation which can worsen acne.

A few simple changes to your skin regimen can help control summer skin problems.

1)      Gentle yet diligent–Wash your face with a non-drying foaming or lotion cleanser twice a day.  Avoid harsh soaps and toners which can dry out the superficial skin layers and stimulate more oil production.  You may want to let your cleanser set on your skin for a minute or two prior to rinsing.

2)      Unplug—a quality clay mask a few times a week is great for absorbing oil and clearing pores.

3)      Go lightly or skip—a lighter moisturizer or hydrating gel is usually enough to keep your skin happy.  Many skip moisturizers altogether in the summer.  Drinking plenty of water will help  keep your skin plump and soft.

4)      Protect—Use a gentle facial sunscreen daily.  Choose a product with an SPF of at least 30.  Try a tinted mineral sunscreen.  Mineral sunscreens are great because they reflect UV radiation rather than absorbing the rays and causing heat damage to the skin.

5)      Seek guidance—Come see us at Rejuvenate Rx for a little help if your acne continues to bother.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

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.
Rejuvenate Rx Post- Care Recommendations for bikini waxing:
Clarisonic Pro Body –Head to toe ultrasonic exfoliation.
Skinceuticals Blemish and Age Serum- -antibacterial with anti-inflammatory properties
Skinceuticals Retinol 0.5

After a few regular waxing cycles your hair will get on a stable grow-out cycle. The more you do this service, the less discomfort you will experience at each treatment. As an added bonus, your hair will grow back sparser with continued waxing.
Our estheticians at Rejuvenate Rx are here Monday – Saturday to help you with all your waxing needs. Feel free to call us with any question or concerns. Let us show you what exceptional care is all about.

Loving care for your lash extensions

 

Full, lush eyelashes can be yours in one appointment at Rejuvenate Rx.  Eyelash extensions are individual lashes attached to your own lashes using a special bonding agent.  Once affixed, your extensions will grow along with your natural lash growth cycle.  We put together some tips to make your lash extensions a success.

When setting your appointment: Expect to spend a little over 2 hours for a full set of lashes.  Fill appointments are typically 1 hour in length.

Before your appointment:  Remove your makeup if possible.  If not, we will remove your makeup for you at the time of your appointment.   The lash adhesive works better on lashes that are completely free of any residues or oils.

After your appointment:

1)      After each application, whether a full set or a “fill,” avoid getting your lashes wet for 48 hours.

2)      Avoid saunas, steam rooms, swimming pools and hot tubs for 48 hours.

3)      Avoid “drenching” work outs for 48 hours.

4)      Use eye make-up and removers that are oil-free

5)      Avoid waterproof make-up, especially waterproof mascara.

6)      Wearing less make-up is better for your lash extensions.

7)      Resist urges to pull or tug on your lashes.  If your lashes are crisscrossing, use a lash wand to brush them straight from root to tip. We will provide you with a wand at your appointment.

8)      Keep your extensions beautiful and well-maintained by keeping your lash-fill appointments every 2-3 weeks.

Enjoy your beautiful lashes!  Give us a call at (509)290-6149 if you would like more information.

Cute cheeks with VolumaTM at Rejuvenate Rx

Cute cheeks with VolumaTM at Rejuvenate Rx

Wrinkles and age spots aren’t the only problems as we age. There is another large part of the aging equation: Volume loss.  Volume loss in the cheeks causes our faces to flatten which causes the skin on our faces to migrate lower and look saggy.

Before Juvederm Voluma XC and 1 month post-treatment. A total of 3.5 ml was injected into the cheek area.

Enter VolumaTM from Allergan.  VolumaTM is the first and only FDA approved filler to add volume to the cheek area, mainly on the cheek bone.  VolumaTM gives you back lifted, youthful, cute cheeks for up to 2 years.   There is very little, if any recovery time and your results are instant.

We are happy to share with you more information over the phone or in complimentary office consultation.  Give us a call at (509)290-6149.
