Adding Natural Volume with Injectables

Today, I would like to discuss facial fillers. What are they? Who needs them? What do they do?
First, the most commonly used fillers, such as Juvederm®, are based on a very natural substance called hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the skin. So that when we inject Juvederm®, we are really just

replacing or enhancing something that is already within us!

Why would someone have a filler? As our skin ages, it loses volumes and sags, producing unwanted lines and wrinkles. Anyone who is experiencing these changes is a candidate for a filler.
And that brings us to the main concept today, volumization. While it used to be thought that correction of wrinkles required injection directly into the lines, we no understand this differently. We know that because of the loss of volume in the face, we must replace that. My preferred filler for that purpose is Juvederm® and it works very well. As volume is replaced, lines and wrinkles lessen and the face takes on a more youthful appearance.
Thus we have it, volumization!

Improve Your Hair Color Services with an Infrared Color Processor!

One of the #1 things people complained about during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic was being unable to get their hair colored. It was commented on the internet, made into memes, and more.


Now that salons are open again, we are hearing that clients are FLOCKING in to get color services. With salons working on more limited capacity than before, customers may be going to any salon they can get an appointment at.

What can you offer your clients in order to maintain their business? How about the best – and fastest – color services around?


Investing in an Infrared Color Processor can help you achieve that goal!

Our favorite is the LUMASHINE Infrared Color Hair Processor. Available in either a stand-alone or wall-mounted unit, this processor features an ozone function that helps bond dyes and molecules to hair to help protect and condition hair by “locking in” dye for a more vibrant long-lasting color. Infrared technology penetrates hair follicles and dries hair from the inside out. Hair is dried faster and with less damage, leaving it smooth and manageable.

Details:
  • Variable temperature settings
  • 30-min timer
  • Ozone, infrared, and fan may be operated simultaneously or individually
  • Available on roller base or wall-mount arm
ADVANCE FAR-INFRARED HEAT TECHNOLOGY:
Different from Ultra Violet9s (UV) destructive energy, far-infrared heat is low-intensity and not damaging to color treatments. Far-infrared heat technology penetrates the cortex of the hair, applying heat from the inside out. Infrared technology heats the hair gently, evenly, and helps maintain hair9s natural moisture balance to prevent over-drying for vibrant lasting shine, faster treatment penetration, and better color retention.

PROTECTS THE HAIR:
Corrosive alkalizing and oxidizing agents forcefully peels hair cuticles open from the outside. This approach damages the natural integrity of the hair and may irreparably destroy the hair9s natural ability to “hold” color. This leads to accelerated color-fading, unpredictability, and less consistency. Infrared heat technology mimics the organic heat energy found in nature and applies it gently, uniformly, and efficiently without the use of aggressive man-made chemicals.

INCREASE COLOR PREDICTABILITY:
Using an infrared heat source to progressively apply heat results inconsistent absorption and retention that produces more vibrant and predictable results. And because the hair cuticle is opened from the inside out, it naturally returns to equilibrium state during the cool-down period. And without harsh chemical residue, the color is better locked-in; creating a more intense shine and constant shade vibrancy.

IMPROVING YOUR BOTTOM LINE:
Applying far-infrared heat technology, hair cuticles are better to open hair cuticles, color, and perm treatment times can be dramatically reduced by 40-50% with most color lines and even with most grey clients. This means a higher chair-turnover rate and less real estate dedicated to clients sitting and waiting for treatments to process.

LED Light Therapy for Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Acne and More!

LED Light Therapy, in different wavelength colors, has been used to treat numerous skin issues, including acne, collagen stimulation, and wound healing. The skin has the ability to absorb infrared light, using the light as an energy source to stimulate cellular regeneration.


Different color LED light penetrates the skin at different depths, thereby providing different results based on the color light being emitted. LED light has been found to produce results with regular use over a period of time, usually 8-12 weeks. This is a non-invasive treatment with virtually no down time, making it an easier sell to your clients who are looking for results.


Blue LED light penetrates 5 mm and can be used to kill acne-causing bacteria, clear comedones, calm inflammation and redness, control sebum production, promote protein synthesis, stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation in the dermal and epidermal. This is a great add-on treatment to your Teen or Acne Facials!


Red LED light penetrates 8-10 mm and can be used for aging or mature skin to stimulate fiberblast activity, increase collagen production, rejuvenates skin tissue, smooth skin texture, improve skin tone, accelerate blood circulation. Anti-wrinkle treatments? I’m in! 🙂 LED Light Therapy is great for stimulating collagen production, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.


Green LED light penetrates 2-5 mm and can be used to reduce hyperpigmentation, calm the skin after a chemical peel or microdermabrasion treatment and help repair skin damage. This is a perfect finish to some of the more abrasive facial treatments you may offer.


Additionally, yellow or amber LED light is used for scar reduction and wound healing. The yellow light triggers the repair mechanism of damaged cells. It has detoxifying and purifying properties, and it improves lymphatic function. Yellow LED light therapy can be specially added to many treatments as determined during your skin inspection.


Pure Spa Direct offers a range of LED Light Therapy units, from large, stand-alone units, to small hand-held units. LED Light Therapy is quickly growing as a popular treatment within the beauty industry. Check out the units we offer today, and start showing your clients results!
