Eyelash Extensions at Image Makeover

eyelash

Our amazing esthetician Lea Brito does eyelash extensions and boy is she ever
good! With eyelash extensions you wont need to wear makeup and your eyes will
still have the big and bright look. The eyelashes are dark so the only mascara
you’ll need is clear mascara (to help keep them looking neat after a night of
tossing and turning) What most of our clients love about having the extensions
is that they always look put together, even if they had to rush out of the house
without makeup. Most of the celebrities( if not all) that you see with dark sexy
eyes or soft and natural look, they have eyelash extensions. The extensions last
3-4 weeks before they start looking scarce. The treatment of putting them on is
very relaxing, some have been known to fall asleep, the eyelashes are put on one
by one while other salon and spa’s put them on in three’s, the benefit to this
is when one falls off, only one falls off not three. The extensions last much
longer wear when they are applied this way. The cost of eyelash extensions is
$120 for a full set the first time they are applied and $50 every 3-4 weeks to
maintain them. When you think about how much time you could be saving, this is a
small price to pay.

E.M.S. ELECTRONIC MUSCLE STIMULATOR

We now offer a treatment that helps to reduce cellulite.
E.M.S. ELECTRONIC MUSCLE STIMULATOR
Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. The impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes on the skin in direct proximity to the muscles to be stimulated. The impulses mimic the action potential coming from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract.  EMS is both a form of electrotherapy and of muscle training as complementary technique for sport training. In the United States, EMS devices are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
EMS causes adaptation, i.e. training, of muscle fibers. Because of the characteristics of skeletal muscle fibers, different types of fibers can be activated to differing degrees by different types of EMS, and the modifications induced depend on the pattern of EMS activity. These patterns, referred to as protocols or programs, will cause a different response from contraction of different fiber types. Some programs will improve fatigue resistance, i.e. endurance, others will increase force production.
EMIn medicine EMS is used for rehabilitation purposes, for instance in Physical therapy in the prevention of disuse muscle atrophy which can occur for example after musculoskeletal injuries, such as damage to bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons. Because of the effect that strengthened and toned muscles have on appearance (a stronger muscle has larger cross-section), EMS is also used by a niche of practitioners for aesthetics goals. EMS devices cause a calorie burning that is marginal at best: calories are burnt in significant amount only when most of the body is involved in physical exercise: several muscles, the heart and the respiratory system are all engaged at once. In EMS training few muscular groups are targeted at the same time, for specific training goals. A niche of coaches regularly use professional EMS devices as integral part of the training of their athletes; some of these are high profile coaches, such as track coach Charlie Francis, who used the technique to supplement the training of Olympic-level athletes. FDA certification The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) certifies and releases EMS

·Prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy;
·Increasing local blood circulation;
·Muscle re-education;
·Immediate post-surgical stimulation of calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis;
·Maintaining or increasing range of motion.

The FDA mandates : no use for wearer of pacemaker; no use on vital parts, such as carotid sinus nerves, across the chest, or across the brain; caution in the use during pregnancy
This machine can tighten and tone your muscles. Some places on the body are next to impossible to tone the way we want, but with this machine we are able to do that. Sculpt your body and get rid of cellulite. It takes a minimum of 10 sessions to see a really big difference, but we have all been using this machine since Lea brought it and we are all amazed after just a few treatments!

Image Makeover – American Express Event

amexevent

Last night Image Makeover was at the Ritz Carlton doing a presentation for the most valued American Express clients. We told them about all the services we provide here and also little tips and tricks for hair and makeup. Because all of our clients are our most valued, we are going to share the same information with you here!

“The American Express most valued client event was an amazing success . The presentation on how to look 10 years younger using Colomer products , was just amazing and well received , the audience was thrilled to receive our luxury brand and lots of interaction after the presentation”

 How to look 10 years younger

Our beauty philosophy is to make yourself a priority every day. Get dressed, apply your makeup and style your hair…yes, every morning. With Image Makeover in your corner, you’ll walk out of the house a knock out every day.

 Nothing ages you like…
  • 1) Bangs that are too short!
  • 2) Hair that is just too long and parted in the middle.
  • 3) High hair.
  • 4) Hair that is too structured.
  • 5) Visibly thinning hair.
  • 6) Hair that is too dark over the age of 40.
  • 7) Solid block of color.
  • 8) Gray hair.
  • 9) Gray roots.
  • 10)Ashy blond streaks.
What we can do…

1) Cutting layers and angles into the hair. When angles and layers are cut around the face, it opens the face up and gives a more youthful appearance.

 2) Change the length a bit. Giving the hair a shorter length will give a softer and more youthful appearance.

3) Changing that middle part into a side part!

 4) Changing the hair color. Hair color is the first thing someone will notice about your hair, so think about what your hair color is saying about you. 54% of us realize that hair color can make us look 10 years younger!

5) Keep your hair moving! Young hair has bounce, it moves and grooves. Get tousled, stirred and shaken! Use products that allow your hair to move, not sticky and hard.

 6) Shiny hair is youthful hair! Pump up the shine with orofluido hair elixir for all hair types and give your hair that youthful glow.

Today’s women desire to be young and beautiful, no matter how old they are. They don’t give up in their struggle against time. Revlonissimo high coverage was created just for them: a high coverage color with a complete anti-age hair treatment.

 Arginine is the newest anti age ingredient in hair color. As hair ages it loses melanin, it becomes more vulnerable, fragile and less receptive to color. As a natural component of skin, muscles and nails, arginine is a part of human proteins and is particularly present in keratin. Its multiple attributes in the cortex and cuticle make it supreme “hair anti-aging” ingredient. Arginine has the ability to counteract the ravages of time, restore the energy, increase the elasticity of hair and protect its color.
Makeup

Too much makeup can make you look harsh. These easy makeup tips will help give you a soft, healthy, youthful glow!

 1) Exfoliant: It is important to exfoliate the skin once a week to remove dead skin cells and let the new layer of skin glow.

2) Moisturize religiously: Applying cream every morning makes skin look fresher even when you don’t wear foundation-and helps it glide on smoothly when you do.

 3) Proceed carefully with powder: A soft dusting helps set makeup and absorbs shine, but too much can settle into lines. Always use a brush rather than a puff for a lighter application.

4) Blur the edges: Rimming your lids with an eye pencil will define the eyes and seem to plump lashes, but always smudge the line a bit afterward for a more flattering, soft-focus effect.

 5) Go light on lip color; Dark colors can look harsh and accentuate imperfections. A lip gloss- not too shiny- looks much fresher.

6) Don’t be afraid of shimmer; a dusting of shimmer shadow over the lids refracts light and brightness to the eyes.
