5 Myths About Botox

Posted August 14, 2014 at 1:33 pm By Re Salon & Med Spa

Botox Myths

Curious about Botox? Think you know everything to know about it? Read this first!

There are a lot of myths about botox that are simply untrue. We’re here to put this myths to rest once and for all!

Myth #1: Botox injections really hurt. 

Fact: Botox is administered with an extremely fine needle to minimize any pain. Patients typically feel some discomfort which goes away quickly. No anesthesia is required. Most of our clients are pleasantly surprised with how little discomfort they felt during the treatment.

 

Myth #2: After Botox injections, you won’t be able to move your face. 

Fact: Botox only relaxes the muscles at the injection site. If a person receives botox treatment from a skilled professional, they will have no trouble exhibiting the full range of facial expressions.  When you see photos of celebrities with “frozen” expressions, this is typically the result of a recent face lift or other plastic surgery procedure.

Myth #3: Botox injections are toxic. 

Fact: Botox has safely been used for over 20 years and has been approved by the FDA since 2002. No long term side effects have ever been observed in studies where people have received as many as 30 botox injection treatments within a nine-year time frame.

 

Myth #4: Botox is used to treat any and all facial lines and wrinkles. 

Fact: Botox is best utilized for “movement wrinkles” (i.e. wrinkled like frown lines that are caused when you make an expression and your face moves).  Other injectables like Dysport, Restylane, or Juvederm may be more appropriate for deeper set wrinkles.  Only a trained professional can tell you for sure what type of injection you need for your desired effect.

 

Myth #5: Botox is only for older women. 

Fact: Botox (or another injectable) is for anyone who sees and dislikes the signs of aging on their face. Many of our clients have experienced premature signs of aging due to sun overexposure or genetics. Botox is very effective in delaying the signs of aging for women of all ages.

If you don’t like what aging is doing to your face, give us a call at 704-334-8087 for a consultation. Botox and other injectables are an easy and fast way to regain your youthful appearance. You’ll be amazed at how fast you’ll see results! We can’t wait to help you love your subtle new youthful look!

Our Favorite Colorful Hair Looks of 2014

Posted August 12, 2014 at 2:35 pm By Re Salon & Med Spa

It takes an unabashedly confident woman (or man) to rock a hair color that doesn’t exist in nature. Maybe that’s why we love these hair colors so much. While everyone else seems to be asking for more natural looks, these celebrities made us second guess our latest balayage do. Could we get away with purple hair? Maybe. Maybe not.

But it sure is fun to dream about turning heads with one of these colorful hair looks of 2014.

Kelly Osbourne has had lavender hair for a couple of years now varying between an icy gray to this more vibrant look.  She makes it work with everything from a demure bob to this punk rock look above with a bad ass undercut. No one pulls it off better than her. No one.

This is probably one of the most subtle looks Katy Perry has shown off this year. And even though we love her jeweled tone hair and her dark raven locks, we’re really digging this ombre pink to strawberry blonde look.

Kylie Jenner is the least known of the Kardashian/Jenner clan. However, she turned heads this year when she showed off her new blue-green hair. She kept her usual jet black about 3-4 inches from the roots so that it looks like her hair was dipped in dark teal blue. Way to stand out, Kylie!

We love Demi Levato’s unapologetic attitude. And we think this colorful look suits her. Her hair is a rainbow of fuschia, ice blue, and lavender. Gorgeously different.

Nicole Richie is a fashion designer, the wife of a rock star, and the daughter of a music legend, so she’s used to turning heads.  However, her lilac hair color is extremely different than anything she has ever done before. And we like it! And we bet her kids like it too. What a cool mom.

We are going to ignore the fact that Selena Gomez has been tangled up with Justin Bieber for the past few years and instead focus on how sweet and innocent she looks with her colorfully striped locks. She’s like a modern day Rainbow Bright!

Whether you want a shockingly gorgeous new hair color or a few sweet subtle locks in an interesting shade, our professional and talented colorists can help you achieve the look you want. Call 704-334-8087 to schedule your appointment!

Our Favorite Buns

Posted August 5, 2014 at 5:18 pm By Re Salon & Med Spa

Gone are the days when buns were only for ballerinas and librarians. Today’s bun is chic, sexy, classy, and easy to accomplish if you have some length on your hair. When it comes to buns, we love everything about them! They’re great for the day after (or maybe two days after) you’ve washed your hair. Buns are cool in the heat of the summer. They’re chic, like the ponytail’s more sophisticated sister. But buns aren’t so fancy that you can’t wear then with leggings and a sweatshirt on a Saturday morning. They can go from day to night. And they’re perfect for showing off beautiful earrings, a slender neck, or gorgeous details on the back of a dress or shirt.

Excuse us if we’re gushing, but we just adore buns. And here are a few of our favorite buns in no particular order, along with a couple tutorials for achieving these beautiful looks!

6 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Wax At Home

Posted July 30, 2014 at 8:16 pm By Re Salon & Med Spa

Waxing At Home

We know it’s tempting.  There are so many articles and websites saying it’s easy and how you can totally do it all by yourself. So go ahead and ask your friends if they’ve tried it and be prepared to hear some horror stories.

Even if you do DIY your wax job successfully a few times, that one time when you botch the job will be awful enough to send you back to the professionals (that’s us!). Trust us.  It’s just not worth it. There’s a reason people get certified in waxing and it’s not because anybody can just do it after watching a You Tube video.

Still need convincing? Here are six reasons why you shouldn’t wax at home.

1. How hot should the wax be? Not that hot.  But you won’t know until it’s too late.

2. You can’t reach that spot, but professionals can.

3. Ripping off a bandaid is much worse when you do it yourself.  Okay, now multiply that by 10.

4. A professional knows just how close to get to the hair you want to keep. Most people don’t, which is why you see people with drawn-on eyebrows.

5. Professionals have tactics that will help your waxing not hurt so much, like numbing cream and other tricks of the trade.

6. Slippery wax. We’ll let this botched wax job speak for itself…
