Eyelash tinting regulations


Eyelash tinting is a confusing topic for me.


During my esthetics training, which was at a very reputable Aveda Institute, I was trained on how to perform eyelash tinting. When working in New York at the Aveda flagship, we did not perform this service as there was, it was explained to me, a federal law prohibiting it.

Sebaceous Hyperplasia - Has anyone treated a client with this disorder?

I have a client who has sebaceous hyperplasia.  I've done research on the problem and have been following the a combination of treatments such as hyfrecator, microdermabrasion and peels.  My client is extremely oil, thick skin, and is Fitzpatrick II.  Anyone have any suggestions as to proper treatment? I know this is a disorder of the sebaceous gland and there is no fix.  Just looking for control of the excessive oil and shrinking of the sebaceous pockets "whitish material".  Thanks.

Has anyone used or seen the results of using the SKIN CLASSIC or SKIN RESURFACER? The hand piece needle supposedly removes larger sunspots, telangantasia, skin tags, cherry angiomas, etc.. How effective and safe is this??

Putting Your Best Face Forward!!

If your live in New Mexico, you probably spend some time in the sun. Who doesn’t? I mean, isn’t that why we live here in the first place? But the Land of Enchantment is not without it’s toll on your skin. We have a high altitude which, while making New Mexico a beautiful place to live also makes it #1 for skin cancers in the entire United States of America.

Growing up in New York City I spent many happy hours on the beaches of Long Island. My parents rented a summer bungalow…

What's in Your Tool Box? Article in Les Nouvelles.

Hi Everyonne...I have an article in the September issue of Les Nouvelles Esthetiques. It's on page 23 and it's called "what's in your tool box?" They definitely did some editing though because there is a section in there about multifunction towers and anyone who knows me, knows that I'm not a big fan of spending money on that type of equipment. I have to say though that it's very much an honor to have an article published!!!
