Mastering the Wow Brow
During the holiday marathon of parties, family gatherings, school events, shopping, wrapping, cooking, packing and general stress scramble, take time to take care of the person at the head of the pack - you!

"It's healthy to do things for ourselves that lift our spirits - there's a reason they call them 'treatments,'" reminds Heather Nelson of WAX by Heather Nelson (644-4346). One of those treats should be regular brow waxing sessions. "Putting your best face forward will help you feel confident," says the brow pro. "A gorgeously-groomed brow and a pop of lip color is all you need to feel pretty and put together as you hop from errand to errand."

Microblade your Brows!
Love the idea of waking up with perfect brows - no fillers, powders, pencils or makeup pens needed? So did tens of thousands of women this year, making microblading one of the fastest-growing beauty trends in the United States. Similar to a tattoo in the sense that pigments are imbedded into the skin, microblading is much more precise and uses cosmetic-grade products to ensure that color and longevity are on point. Natalie Mendes, a microblading pioneer, specializes in the technique that makes natural, wispy-looking permanent brows a possibility - no matter how little "brow" you start with. Fill in bald spots, create a more-flattering arch and give definition and dimension to your face with products that boast results that last at least three years.

Raise your Hand with Pride?
Hands lose elasticity as we age, resulting in visible tendons and veins, which can make the hands look much older than the face. Dr. Ingber of DermaCure has created a method of injecting hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane Lyft into the top of the hands to help plump the area, hiding some veins and protruding tendons, making the hands look instantly younger. The procedure takes about 30 to 40 minutes and lasts up to one year. Side effects are minor; bruising and minor swelling are possible, but temporary. Pair your treatment with a Fraxel Dual hand treatment to improve the look of sun damage for the perfect overall hand makeover. 257-8400
