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.

Eyelid Eczema- Consider the Source!

When you have eczema your skin is more sensitive than someone who doesn’t have it. Eyelids are more susceptible to eczema than most areas on your body because eyelid skin is thin and very reactive to irritants.

It is important to know that the rash didn’t appear because your eczema “felt” like flaring up. Something triggered it.

In many cases, that “something” is coming in direct (or indirect) contact with the skin around your eyes. Think about metals such as nickel, tin and gold (yes even wedding rings.) Consider chemical ingredients found in shampoos, laundry detergents, skincare products, makeup, rubber gloves, sunscreens and nail polish. Sometimes winter dry skin is all that is needed to increase your sensitivity to a metal or chemical that never caused any problem before.

We at Rejuvenate Rx are ready to help figure out the cause of the problem when it starts. However, you can start your investigation right away by eliminating (or changing) some of the items above for 2-4 weeks at a time—keep track of any changes you’ve made on your calendar. If you are still stumped, come on in for help! –Dr. Gwyn

Acne from all Angles

Acne can affect you no matter what your age. Acne is different for different people and skin types.

Just as our approach to skin rejuvenation is multifaceted; at Rejuvenate Rx we approach acne care from several different directions. Home skincare combined with prescription care is a good foundation, however in my opinion all individuals with acne can benefit from office procedures. Chemical peels, cryotherapy and other acne procedures are extremely helpful in controlling and clearing acne. They help to clear pores, increase cellular turnover and speed resolution of stubborn acne lesions. Combined with the proper skincare program, corrective procedures and professional maintenance have proven to be great strategies to get your skin clear and keep you clear for the long run.
