19 Sep Repair sun-damaged skin and gear up for Fall with the Brow Boutique

Repair sun-damaged skin!  The Brow Boutique is gearing up for Fall. We have a voluminous Autumn lineup that will have your skin screaming for more!

 

Recuperating from sun-damaged skin can be challenging. Most of us forget to apply sunscreen half the time, and even if you aren’t directly under the sun, the sun gets reflected off everything! The sun can cause dryness, patches, pigmentation, and sunspots, which can stay with you all winter long. Resuscitate and repair your summer skin by doing some of the following:

At home you can utilize seasonal fruits that will help you cleanse your insides leaving our outside hydrated and radiant.

1 cup Fresh Pineapple

1 whole lemon

½ half a pomegranate

Blend it all together and add it 2liters of water.

A simple daily cleanser would be to use our Black Soap. It is filled with coconut oil, palm oil, palm kernel oil, shea butter and cocoa butter. They also contain ashes from different plants, like shea tree bark, banana trees, cocoa pods, and plantain leaves. For centuries, Ghanaians and Nigerians have used black soap to help relieve acne, oily skin, clear blemishes and various other skin issues. Many swear by it for skin irritations and conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

08 Sep The 411 on Microneedling done at the Brow Boutique Portland and Lake Oswego

What is Microneedling? Microneedling is done using an electric skin needling device made especially for this purpose. The Dermapen is an award-winning device shaped like a pen that uses disposable tip that is in cased with very fine needles. It is a sterile medical device used in microneedling to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply.

What conditions can be treated or improved with Microneedling?

  • Mild to moderate acne scarring; any new or old scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles;
  • Loose, lax skin;
  • Improves skin texture and reduces pore size
  • Stretch marks on all parts of the body

 

How does Microneedling work? The device that we use is the best-rated Microneedling pen out there, called Dermapen.  The Dermapen glides along the surface of the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The procedure prompts the body to respond through the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers underneath the dermis. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and tightens, reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and wrinkles.

What does the procedure involve? The skin is cleaned and numbing cream may be applied to lessen discomfort. For better results we use a collagen-stimulating product like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin-C serum or skin lightener for pigmentation during the procedure. A small handheld pen like device with a sterile, disposable tip with tiny needles is then used to pierce the skin. The Dermapen has multiple speeds and adjustable needle depth allow needles to pierce the skin’s layer at 90 degrees and increase the absorption of products. After the treatment, soothing Vitamin-C serum or Hyaluronic acid are used to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.

What will I look like after the treatment? Most people will experience redness and mild swelling in a similar way as mild sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be minimal pin-point bleeding and/or light bruising. Almost immediately, you will notice your skin tighten. Within a week or two, you will notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant looking but the full effects won’t be seen until a few months later.

What is the down time after Microneedling treatment? The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 24 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based sunblock. The use of mineral makeup is recommended after procedure.

 

What are the benefits of Microneedling?

  • Dramatically increases the effectiveness and penetration of active ingredients in topical preparation
  • Stimulates circulation and collagen production
  • Medical grade titanium needles makes it non-allergenic to human tissue
  • Cost effective compared to other resurfacing procedures
  • Can be performed on all skin types, including ethnic skin
  • It can be used on all areas of the scalp, face, body including fragile skin like around eyes, mouth and neck

 

What effects does the Microneedling have on the skin?

  • Improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles
  • Stimulates tissue regeneration
  • Disfiguring scars, especially acne scars can be improved as new collagen fibers elevate the depressed scar tissue with the periphery skin
  • Pore size reduction
  • Improves the appearance of stretch marks

 

Is Microneedling painful? Prior to the treatment, numbing cream will be applied to minimize pain that is felt during the procedure.

Can Microneedling be performed on any skin color? Microneedling is safe to use on all skin types and all skin colors. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

How many treatments do I need and how often can  Microneedling procedures be repeated? Microneedling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 4 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, and the extent of the damage at the beginning Microneedling can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs, etc). Most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment.

What should I avoid on my skin after treatment? To ensure the right healing environment, for 2-3 days do not use AHA’s (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients. Exposure to sun should also be avoided or zinc based sunblock should be used.

What are the side effects of the Microneedling procedure? There are virtually no negative side effects, and none have ever been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide.

17 Mar The History of Sugaring

“The history of hair removal is less simple and defined than the techniques themselves. There are many guesses as to where the practice originated. Possibilities history of sugaringinclude Persia, India, Pakistan, Turkey, or Egypt. What we know for sure, though, is that hair removal was important to women even in ancient times.There is a well-known story about Malikat Saba, the queen of the ancient kingdom of Sheba, best known to us as the Queen of Sheba. The Queen of Sheba was a very hairy person. Solomon, the king of Israel, invited the Queen to come to him in his kingdom. The spirits, animals, jinn, and other natural and supernatural creatures who were the servants of the Jewish king became afraid that their kind would fall in love with this queen, and they did not wish to serve two masters. The jinn–unseen creatures of the spirit world–devised a plan. They decided to build a crystal palace on the occasion of the visit that had floors of glass above a lake, so that when the Queen stepped across the floor she would be tricked into thinking it was water, and so must raise her skirt. The King would then see her hairy legs and be repulsed. Upon the Queen’s arrival, Solomon escorted her to the new palace. Upon seeing the floor, the Queen raised her skirt and the King saw her hairy legs and was indeed, repulsed. So he called upon the jinn to see if they knew of a remedy for this. Seeing that they could not interfere with King Solomon’s love for the Queen of Sheba, the jinn suggested that the Queen shave. The King thought it was inappropriate for a woman to shave her legs as a man shaves his face, so the jinn instead devised a sticky substance called gypsum. When they applied this substance to the Queen’s legs and then pulled it off, the hair came off with it leaving the Queen’s legs smooth, and the King was pleased. From this story we see that women have been removing hair for aesthetic reasons since ancient times.” Rahman, Tasneem (2013-12-08).
