We have all your most common thoughts on all things FACE FOUNDRIÉ answered! Today we have a special guest, one of our licensed estheticians from our Houston location, Spencer Elliott! Here are her expert thoughts on all of our most asked questions:
What are the best enhancements to brow services?
You can never go wrong with enhancing your brow services with a tint! The deepness of color can be controlled for a more natural or prominent look and eliminates the need to fill in your brows. Whether you are simply getting a brow wax or lamination, I highly recommend enhancing with a tint!
What’s your favorite service combo?
Speaking of brows, my favorite service combo is a brow lamination, wax, and tint. This combo just makes my soul so happy. Brows are instantly lifted and thickened with the lamination and then darkened and carved with tint. Ending with a wax to tie it all together and you will literally leave with an entirely new brow, it’s amazing.
What do you feel like is the hidden gem service at FACE FOUNDRIÉ people cannot live without?
A hidden gem service at FACE FOUNDRIÉ is definitely the Cryo Queen. This is typically not the first service a client gravitates towards but once you try it, you will be hooked for life. The cryotherapy is surprisingly very relaxing (it will instantly get rid of a headache) and leaves your skin so plumped and glowy!
What brow services are your favorite to pair together to get a snatched brow look?
Of course, I am biased for my fave lami/wax/tint but if you are looking for a super snatched and clean-cut brow, I would highly recommend a wax and henna. Henna stains the skin and the brow hairs, leaving you with an extremely sharp shape that lasts for weeks to come! Then finishing with a wax allows the service provider to meticulously carve out your brow for that clean look.
What service should I do next for my skin type?
One thing I love about FACE FOUNDRIÉ is how our service menu is interchangeable regardless of your skin type. There are a few exceptions to that of course but for the most part, I always recommend a Clean & Natural as a great service for any skin type. The gua sha massage will have you snoozing in our bed in no time.
What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation technique performed by a licensed Esthetician. The technique includes using a sterilized medical-grade blade that is gently and carefully glided across the skin to remove the top layer of dead skin along with any peach fuzz. Dermaplaning provides an instant reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and allows all skincare products to better absorb into your face.
What does a chemical peel do to my skin? How does a peel work?
A chemical peel is a facial resurfacing technique that uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers.
What should I avoid after my peel service?
After a peel, you want to keep your skincare routine super simple and load up on the SPF. Avoid excessive sun exposure, no manual exfoliation, and do not skimp on the moisturizer.
How long do I have to wait to get another lash lift/brow lamination
Lamination can last anywhere from 2-6 weeks depending on the guest’s lifestyle/ products. It is safe to get another lamination once the effects of the first have worn off, I would say on average 6 weeks.
Do I need to wear a serum on my skin each day? Why?
The skincare junkie inside of me will always answer this with a yes, but I really do mean it. When using serums, they do need to be used daily in order to see their full benefits. It’s like working out for one day and expecting to see results, consistency is key with serums.
