Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What’s the difference between IPL and laser hair removal?
Both IPL and laser produce energy in order to disrupt the hair growth cycle of each hair follicle to reduce the hair growth without damaging the surrounding tissue. Choosing IPL, each laser pulse takes a fraction of a second and can treat several hairs at the same time whereas the Laser produces a single wavelength of light which has a very concentrated beam and specific target (the melanin in the hair follicle)
Q. What’s the difference between sns & acrylic nail enhancements?
SNS is a much safer but completely different technology than acrylic enhancements. SNS is a dipping system with no liquid, no acetone and little to none odour. Acrylic on the other hand is much more hard wearing and are targeted for the client base who enjoy longer nails and stronger wearing.
Q. How long does a spray tan last?
5-7 days depending on what products you use to keep your skin hydrated. For example, we use Tuscan tan here at Allure Salon and Spa and in this range we also have a tan extender to help reduce the risk of your skin turning dry and flaky. It also helps with the fade of the tan, keeping it an even fade rather than that blotchy unwanted pigment on our skin in between tans.
Q. Why did we chose Youngblood makeup?
Youngblood stood out to us because of their true ‘mineral’ meaning. While the storyline of Pauline Youngblood whom at the time in 1996 was not satisfied with the makeup options available for sensitive and traumatized skin teamed up with expert chemists to develop formulas that provide coverage but without restricting the skins ability to heal. That to us, was enough. Youngblood Is Non-comedogenic and non-acenegenic, free of talc and fragrance which is commonly found in other brands.
Q. What are the benefits from getting microdermabrasion facial?
Microdermabrasion can be used to give your skin a healthy glow removing any dead skin or dull cells on the surface of the skin, also helping removing any clogged pours resulting in blackheads or acne.
Q.What are the benefits of LED light therapy?
LED light therapy works at a cellular level especially great to fight active acne and rosacea. The deep penetrating LED light target deep into cells heightening their internal functions and creates faster healing so your skin always looks rejuvenated.
Q. Why is it important to consider changing over to Youngblood mineral makeup?
When wearing makeup for 12+ hours a day, and knowing how many alcohol and fragrance ingredients are in other makeup lines, it’s very important to let your skin breathe and with mineral makeup, your skin can be left glowing and breathable.
Q. What is a carbon facial?
A carbon facial also known as the charcoal facial is a non-invasive laser facial treatment that leaves your skin feeling tighter, smoother and soft.
Q. Does waxing really reduce hair growth?
Waxing should make your hair regrow finer and lighter depending on one’s wax schedule and hair growth. In time, waxing leaves the hair follicle weakened but won’t stop hair growth forever.
