Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. Many different products and treatments use this method, including medical procedures, salon treatments and creams and scrubs that you apply yourself at home. It's usually done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands. Before we can understand how microdermabrasion does what it does, it's important to understand how skin works.
Your skin is made up of two main layers, the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the layer closest to the outside world. It's a set of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are in the process of maturing. The topmost layer is called the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum mostly acts as a barrier between the outside world and the lower skin layers. It keeps all but the smallest molecules from getting through.

Swedish massage is the most common type of massage at the spa. Swedish massage combines various hands-on techniques including gliding, kneading, and cross-fiber friction to break up muscle knots, called adhesions.
Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology as opposed to energy work. It can be slow and gentle, or vigorous and bracing, depending on what the therapist wants to achieve.
The father of Swedish massage (and also) physical therapy is Per Henrik Ling (1776-1839) of Smaaland, Sweden, a physiologist and fencing master. In the early 19th century he developed a system called "Medical Gymnastics" which included movements performed by a therapist. These became the known as "Swedish movements" in Europe and "the Swedish Movement Cure" when they came to the U.S. in 1858. Today it is simply known as Swedish massage.
Eyebrow and eyelash tint
What is eyelash and eyebrow tinting?
Eyelash tinting involves carefully dying the lashes with safe, natural tints, to give them a natural, luscious, darker appearance. Many different eyelash and eyebrow tint colours (including blues, browns, blacks and greys) are available so we can complement your skin and hair colouring perfectly:
Who can benefit from eyelash and eyebrow tinting? Do any of these situations sound familiar?
- You do lots of sport (especially swimming)
- You’re sensitive to make-up
- You find the daily make-up ritual too time consuming
- You’ve got very fine eyebrows – an eye brow tint will help
- You simply want to enhance your looks
- You don’t like the ‘panda eyes’ that can result with mascara
- You’re a contact-lens wearer who’s tired of the hassle of applying mascara!
What does a typical eyelash or eyebrow tinting session involve?
Apart from the opportunity to relax in our salon. Two days before every brow or eyelash tint we’ll do a patch test; this is essential to ensure that you aren’t sensitive to the tint. Once we know there’s no reaction, we’ll agree the best eye lash tint for your hair and complexion. The tinting, involving careful application of safe natural dyes to your lashes, takes about 15 minutes – and can last up to six weeks.
Semi-permanent eyelash extensions will give you longer, thicker and very natural looking eyelashes.
Eyelash extensions are great for everyday wear or special occassions. Eyelash extensions brighten and open your eyes. Eyelash extensions have gained a tremendous amount of popularity in the last couple of years because the look acheived is so natural.
The extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They provide length and thickness to your own lashes and are available in varying lengths and thickness. They are applied to your individual eyelashes, one lash at a time. There is no need for mascara even though a water based mascara is fine to use. The result is thicker, longer, eye opening eyelashes that are safe in the shower, while swimming, sleeping or exercising.
Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area (bikini waxing, brazilian, hollywood), legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet.
There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.
Strip waxing (soft,warm wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin (i.e, bruising, broken capillaries, ingrown hairs caused by hair follicle trauma and lifting of skin). This removes the wax along with the hair.
Strip-less wax (as opposed to strip wax), also referred to as hard wax, is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful.
How the hair is removed
Preparation. First the skin is prepped with a pre-wax gel or talcum powder. This removes oiliness from the hair to ensure good adhesion with the wax.
A further thin layer of oil is applied. This does the same job as the gel, but also protects the skin.
Strip Wax: This is honey wax applied with a wooden spatula. The wax is heated to a gooey consistency so that it can adhere to the hair when applied, but not uncomfortably hot. It is applied along the direction of the hair growth.
When it cools down and sets after a short while, the wax is pulled off against the direction of hair growth, taking the hair with it.
Strip wax This is a more runny type of wax that is generally applied in a very thin layer with a steel spatula, also along the direction of the hair growth. A special paper or fabric strip is placed on the wax and pressed down to ensure good adhesion.
When the strip is pulled away rapidly against the growth direction, the hair goes with it.
Strip wax is generally used for larger areas like backs, arms and legs.
