The brow’s meow: how to get eyebrows that wow

7 Apr

Have you ever noticed how important nicely shaped eyebrows are to overall appearance?  Or how a very light or blonde brow seems to visually disappear?  Do you appear angry even when you are not?  Beautiful, well-groomed, unfurrowed eyebrows frame and showcase what many consider to be the most important feature, the eyes!  And, speaking of brows, we have plans for you and yours!  Whether you need them waxed, tinted, made up, replaced, or unfurrowed, Northwest Hair Restoration and Laser Hair & Skin Center of Tacoma is the place to be.

For an easy makeup solution to enhancing your brows instantly, Jane Iredale, The Skin Care Makeup, has a travel-size compact called Bitty Brow Kit, that comes in blonde and brunette.  The kit is $27.00, and includes a botanical brow wax and pigmented powder for adding definition and staying power.

Laser Hair and Skin Center of Tacoma’s medical esthetician/laser technician, Angela Janssen, in addition to loving skin care, is also a big fan of brow waxing and tinting!  Brow wax $17.00, brow tint $17.00.

For those deep furrows or worry lines between the brows, Botox is a terrific option.  Botox is a purified protein that, when injected into your expression lines, will cause the muscle to relax and smooth out.  This treatment lasts approximately 4 months.  To view progressive before and after pictures of Botox results, please visit the Botox website.

At Northwest Hair Restoration, Dr. Robert Niedbalski does more than hair replacement on the scalp, he also does eyebrows, and they turn out beautifully.  Our staff has been positively giddy over the results!

Dr Niedbalski is one of the pioneering researchers in the application of ACell with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for both hair multiplication in hair restoration surgery and combating baldness with injection therapy.  In September 2011, he began a small clinical trial (10 men and 10 women) to study the effects of ACell + PRP therapy on thinning eyebrows. So far the results have been very promising.

Whether your brows need makeup, waxing, de-furrowing, or replacing, there are great options available to help you get brows that wow.

The Best Estheticians in the Tacoma Area

6 Apr

Esthetician is a funny word.  Not everyone knows what it means, but most people want one once they find out what it is!  Esthetics is a division of cosmetology, with the focus being on the health and beautification of the skin.  Be they known as beauty advisors, skin care experts, makeup artists, or hair removal specialists, estheticians wear many hats.

Beautiful, glowing skin has always been desirable, but aside from dermatology, skin care has not always garnered the attention in the Tacoma area that it receives nowadays.  You are likely now to find that many dermatology and plastic surgery clinics employ estheticians, and many salons and spas do as well.  An esthetician’s work is a great compliment to that of the doctor and the hair stylist alike, making the skin care profession a wonderful combination of health and beauty.

Each esthetician tends to be good at many of the aspects of their field, but it’s natural that they have certain services in which they really shine.  If you reside in the general Tacoma area, check out the following wonderful estheticians:

  • Makeup – Karli Stewart at Spa Aneity – 613 Capitol Way S, Olympia, WA 98501, 360-357-6953.  Karli’s place of business is a little bit of a drive from Tacoma, but she can help you with all your makeup needs, from color matching to bridal makeup.  
  • Brows and Lashes – Jamie DiStefano at Stella and Rocco’s – 3720 Sixth Avenue Suite D, Tacoma, WA, 98406, 253-686-8054.  The best brow waxing/shaping and beautiful lash extensions.
  • Day Spa Sooji’s Day Spa – 3914 6th Avenue, Suite B, Tacoma, WA  98406, 253-404-0024.  Sooji is lovely and will make you feel right at home in the facial room.
  • Clinical Skin Care – Angela Janssen at Laser Hair and Skin Center of Tacoma – 1201 Pacific Ave, Suite 1910, Tacoma, WA 98402, 253-572-2949.  Angela’s specialties are chemical peels, dermaplaning, and laser hair removal.
  • Laser SpecialistLucinda Johnson at Dr. Barbara Levy’s in Federal Way – 34503 Ninth Avenue South Suite 330, Federal Way, WA  98003, 253-927-1286.  Just a few minute’s drive on the freeway, but worth it for Lucinda’s experience and conscientiousness with IPL and Pixel.

When it comes to the health and beauty of your face and skin, always have an experienced esthetician on speed dial!

Applied with a special “manly” brush that looks like a shaving brush, it’s just enough to even out skin tone for a more polished look. Keep lips perfect with H/E Lip Balm SPF 15. It is a lemony gem that keeps lips soft, soothed, and protected.
