Nail treatment is a procedure that is performed on the nails to enhance their appearance, strength or overall health. We offer a variety of treatments including acrylic extensions, gel treatments, manicures, pedicures, nail art and more. These treatments can involve shaping, filing (with or without the e-file), buffing, cuticle care and the application of nail products like gels or acrylics.
Waxing is a procedure to remove unwanted hair from its roots. In some areas warm wax is applied to the skin, and a strip of paper is pressed into the preparation. The strip is then pulled away, taking hair with it. In other areas hot wax is applied to the skin and is allowed to cool. The cooled wax is then pulled away taking hairs with it.
Threading is a procedure to shape and remove unwanted hairs from areas such as the eyebrows, upper lip, chin and full face. The threading procedure involves a thin, twisted cotton thread that is rolled over the skin, catching and removing the hair from the follicle.
Lashlifts & tinting is a procedure that involves curling and lifting the natural lashes from the root using a silicone rod or shield. The lashes are carefully adhered to the rod or shield, creating a lifted and curled effect. This helps to enhance the natural shape and length of the lashes. After the lashes are lifted, a lash tint is applied to darken the colour of the lashes. The tint is applied to the lashes, giving them a more defined and noticeable look.
Lash extensions are a procedure that involve applying individual synthetic lashes to your natural lashes creating a fuller and longer lash appearance.
Possible Side Effects of the Treatments
The above procedures may cause side effects. The side effects listed here are merely examples and is not intended to be an exhaustive list. Every person is different and there is no guarantee that more severe side effects will not occur. Of the observed side effects the most common are listed. You may experience quickly dissipating, mild discomfort when the e-file, LED setting machine or hair is removed. Taking antibiotics may also make skin more sensitive and susceptible to skin lifting when undergoing any of the above treatments. Please be aware that use of the e-drill, LED setting machine or hair removal may cause inflammation, welts, hives, skin lifting and reddening or small breakouts due to bacteria being pulled out with the hair or due to sensitivity or an allergy to products or equipment used. This is usually not severe and may subside within a few days. If you have a reaction, apply a topical antibiotic, apply aloe vera gel, stay out of the sun and avoid contact with heat / hot water. If not resolved within a few days then you should contact a medical expert.
