What is Restylane Silk? 

Maybe you’ve heard about Restylane Silk and aren’t sure what it is. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is here to help. Learn if this is a potential answer for your esthetic needs. Have you noticed your lips aren’t looking as lush and kissable as when you were younger? Maybe little lines have become more noticeable above your lips. Unfortunately, as we age, the skin around our lips and eyes tends to wrinkle first.

Restylane Silk is an FDA approved lip injection that helps augment your lip shape and smooth the lines over your lips which are called your perioral lines.

One of our registered nurses uses an ultra-fine needle to plump your lips with the filler. The filler is made with hyaluronic acid which has been manipulated so the micro particles last longer in your body than natural hyaluronic acid that your body produces.

When it comes to the lip injections and Restylane Silk, you’ll need to see a licensed practitioner. One of the nice things about this formula is that it includes a bit of Lidocaine, which means it will help with the discomfort or sting due to the injections.

As they inject the gel-like product, they may also gently massage the area to create a more even distribution which will give your lips a more natural look. Based on a clinical study, 98% of patients saw a difference within 2 weeks.

For about 60% of the people studied during a clinical research trial, almost 60% saw results that lasted up to 6 months, though this is a procedure you’ll need to duplicate if you want to continue with fuller lips.

Some contraindications to be aware of: If you’re allergic to Lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins used to make hyaluronic acid, prone to bleeding, or have a bleeding disorder you shouldn’t use this product.

So, if you’ve been feeling less than stellar in your appearance, and the thinner look of your lips is bothering you, there is a solution. It’s natural. It happens to most of us because of aging. And those pesky perioral lines that are directly above your lips give your age away as quickly as crow’s feet. It’s frustrating, but at least there’s a simple solution now, a solution that can give you a more youthful look.

With Restylane Silk, you can reshape and refill your lips with results that last up to six months. Knowing the product is FDA approved offers peace of mind as well.

What bothers you the most about getting older? Is it the gray hair sprouting up you’re constantly in a battle to color, the lines around your eyes, or your thinning lips? Thanks to modern science and technology, we can combat most of these things with ease, so don’t let something bother you if you want a quick fix. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to feel your best.

Wrinkles Got You Down? Botox Vs. Dysport

What’s the difference between Botox and Dysport? What do you need to know if you’re considering either of these options to tackle your aging concerns? Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is here to educate you on two awesome choices.

There’s no easy way to say it, but the fine lines and creases we develop as we age are only going to become more noticeable. It’s a fact. They’re there and not going away anytime soon. Sure, you try to act like they don’t bother you, but spending more time staring at them in the mirror isn’t the solution. Look, if you really want to erase them, why not try a temporary solution and see if you like the results. That’s where Botox Cosmetic and Dysport come in. They aren’t life changing, but they can help you love what you see in the mirror once again.

These injected formulas allow you to turn back the clock if even for a couple months to see if this is something you want to keep using. There’s nothing that says you need to continue, but why not reward yourself and give it a try.

Okay, so, what do you need to know when it comes to Botox and Dysport, and which should you try?

Both of these products use the same type of ingredient and are injectables. They are often used for muscle spasms to treat medical issues, but they’ve been found to help with the aging process and wrinkles as well. Bonus!

Now, within these two different branded products are proteins. The comparison between them have to do with the specific proteins and how many of them there are in the formulas. Another thing to consider is that while Dysport may show you results sooner than Botox, it doesn’t last quite as long as Botox does.

While these are not fillers to help change the shape of the lines on your face, what they do is smooth the muscle beneath the skin, which gives it a more uniform appearance. This causes the wrinkles to appear smoother, and less noticeable.

Dysport is used for the lines and wrinkles that form between your eyebrows. It is only approved to be used in this area. Botox however can be used in the same location, plus tackle your crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.

Another thing to note is the Botox may take longer to see the results, up to a month’s time, though the results last up to six months. Dysport will show results within a week’s time in some cases, but only lasts 3-4 months. If you’re looking for a quicker fix, Dysport might be a good option when this area bothers you. Otherwise, Botox can treat multiple areas and lasts longer. Seems like a win, but only you can truly decide.

Want to learn more about Botox / Dysport? Perhaps speak with one of our registered nurses? Visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona at (480) 912-5325.

Glutathione Therapy: What is Glutathione and How Does it Make my Skin Look Better? 

Glutathione is both an antioxidant and protein. Here’s an interesting fact—Glutathione acts as a sponge which draws out free radicals. It also teams up with other vitamins in the body, forcing them to work harder. The best news? Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is your local hook-up for Glutathione therapy.

Did you know that your body produces this peptide? There’s a way to increase the efficiency and make a bigger impact. Glutathione therapy is one way to add more of this incredible peptide to your body. There are both injections and IV therapy available, which lets your body readily absorb more of the crucial protein and antioxidant.

The healthful benefits include detoxifying your body and removing scavenger free radicals. This protects your skin from damaging elements. You end up with improved immune function while reducing inflammation in your body. As for your skin, it gets brighter, clearer, and healthier looking. Due to the peptide nature of this protein, it has anti-aging benefits as well.

Time has changed the environment and stressors around us. We’re constantly bombarded with pollution, free radicals which are damaging to your cells, and constant day to day stress. What that means is that while your body produces Glutathione, it doesn’t produce nearly enough to keep up with the non-stop demands placed on your body.

By getting Glutathione therapy, you can help coerce your body back into better health. The enzyme responses of Glutathione mean that your skin becomes brighter, helps reduce scarring, and also can reduce dark spots. Because of the anti-aging benefits and how it helps enhance Vitamin C, that means it addresses wrinkles, puffiness, fine lines and even helps prevent acne.

Glutathione also accelerates the benefits of Coenzyme Q10 which is another anti-aging booster. This therapy can be used as injections or IV therapy. You may be wondering why you can’t just simply take supplements to get the same response. Unfortunately, due to how it’s digested, you’d lose the nutrient value, as it doesn’t absorb properly. Generally, the injections are done as muscular injections, while the IV therapy is infused through a standard IV procedure.

When you’re tackling the frustrations of getting older and the inevitable fine lines that occur, there are things you can do. In this instance, by injecting a naturally occurring ingredient you can rejuvenate your skin, while detoxifying your body by using the benefits of the amazing Glutathione therapy. This super peptide is one antioxidant that will give you a nice boost when it comes to a healthier appearance.

When you come to Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa for Glutathione injections, or any kind of IV therapy, you’ll be in the hands of an actual registered nurse. They’ll be able to answer any questions you might have and you can trust the treatment is being done by a seasoned professional.

Want to learn more about our Glutathione therapy or IV Nutrient therapy? Visit our Gilbert location or give us a call at (480) 912-5325.

Lip Injections for Men: A Guide to Plump, Puffy Lips

When we think of lip injections, it’s easy to picture the Kardashians or other celebrities using the filler to plump their lips. Women are the largest client base when it comes to getting lip fillers. But, what about guys? Is this service for men as well? Or does the thought of getting a needle to the face freak you out? Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is here help fella’s get the lips of their dreams.

As we get older, our natural elasticity in our skin fades, and the fat stores that create fullness in our faces diminishes. This leaves us often looking sullen, less youthful, and with thin lips.

While it’s not considered masculine to want fuller, plump lips, some men have trouble accepting the changes in appearance from the aging process. The change comes on gradually, but once you notice it, it’s hard to ignore, and nature won’t bring that youthful exuberance back.

So, if you’re a guy aching for plump, puffy, kissable lips, here’s what you need to know about lip injections for men.

Yep. A needle to your face. Ready for the juicy details?

First, what you need to understand is that dermal fillers and lip injections offer a temporary solution. This can be a good thing or a bad thing. It means that you can try it and see if you like the results. If you don’t, eventually, your lips will go back to their thinner existence. If you do, then you’ll need to continue getting injections to keep the results.

There are two different kinds of lip fillers—synthetic and natural fillers. Both create a fuller look after being injected to the dermal area of your skin. The hyaluronic acid will eventually absorb, leaving you needing another boost of filler. You may also see this referred to as lip augmentation.

If you choose to get the lip injections, your results generally last about 6 months, so be sure you’re comfortable making this change. It’s not going away in a week’s time. While hyaluronic acid is typically the filler of choice, there is another option where fat is removed from one area of your body, and then is used as filler for your lips. Most people opt for the simple lip fillers with hyaluronic acid due to the quickness and ease of the procedure.

The doctor will dot or mark the area to be corrected, and then insert thin needles into your skin to apply the filler. Think of it as similar to the experience of getting Novocain at the dentist’s office. After the procedure, ice can help with the discomfort. You’ll see the results immediately, so make sure you go with a reputable doctor who has a solid reputation and good reviews.

Ready for the lips of your dreams? Try lip injections for men. Give Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa a call and set up an absolutely free consultation (480) 912-5325.

Cause Serious Brow Envy With Lamination

Let’s face it, we’re living in the golden age of brows. Ever since Instagram baddies came around, we’ve been absolutely obsessed over how to get our brows big, bold, and beautiful.

And if you’re looking for the latest trend in drool-worthy eyebrows, it’s here at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa: brow lamination. It’s the easiest way to get the fashionable feathery brows of your dreams.

Brow Lamination got its start in Russia, but British models brought it to the mainstream. Basically, brow lamination is like a perm for your eyebrows. A chemical solution is applied to your brows that help to restructure your brow hairs for a more attractive, feathery look.

If you’ve got brow hairs that can get a bit unruly, this is the treatment for you. It’s also perfect for those with unwanted light patches or gaps in their brows. And if you simply want to wake up with Vogue-worthy brows every day without touching a spool, then it’s definitely what you want.

Unlike microblading or eyebrow extensions, lamination works with your existing eyebrow hair. It’s non-invasive and the results can last up to 8 weeks. And sure, it works best on those who already have a decent amount of brow hair to work with, but it’s also great for giving a fuller look to those with fine brow hairs.

Want to know what to expect from your brow lamination visit? When you first get to Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa,  you should have an initial consultation with your brow artist. They should explain the treatment and the process and make sure to answer any of your questions. Once you’re prepped and ready to go, your brow artist will brush through your brow hairs and apply a gentle chemical product that makes the hairs softer and easy to shape. This should stay in your brows for about 20 minutes.

After that, your artist will shape your brows and set them in place with a second solution. This is a keratin oil treatment that makes your existing hairs big and fluffy while stimulating more hair growth to keep them that way. Altogether, the whole process should take less than an hour.

There’s not much you have to do to prep for your brow lamination. Avoid using harsh skincare products like retinol and acne treatments for at least 48 hours before your appointment. These can make your skin more sensitive and irritable to the lamination solution. And to make things simpler at the spa, go to your appointment with a bare face and clean skin.

Your results should last about 8 weeks, but only if you take care of your brows and maintain them. After getting your brows laminated, make sure to:

  • Keep the affected area dry for 24 hours. Don’t apply creams, oils, or eye makeup.
  • Don’t rub your eyes for 24 hours
  • Skip the gym until tomorrow and avoid a super-hot shower.
  • Oil your brows nightly after the first night
  • Don’t use retinol or an exfoliator for 72 hours.

And just like that, you’ve got Cara Delevingne-level brows! If you’re looking to seriously improve your brow-game, visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona at (480) 912-5325.

Have Melasma? Try a PRP Facial

After the dog days of summer are over and your sun-kissed glow sadly fades away, do you ever have patches of tan that never quite leave? Well, these brownish-gray blotches have a name—Melasma. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is here to help.

They can show up on your forehead, chin, cheeks, lips, and nose. And they might be around for the long-haul. According to Harvard Medical’s Dr. Barbara Gilchrest, “Women who develop melasma in their teens or 20s or 30s may see it stay around for decades.”

If you’re like us, you’ve taken time in quarantine to bring your skincare game to the next level. If you’re still seeing skin discoloration and dark patches on your face after all your face masks and serums, read on to learn about Melasma and how you can treat it.

So what exactly is melasma? When pigment cells in your skin start overproducing, it can cause dark spots that are larger than freckles or age spots. This is Melasma, sometimes referred to as “the mask of pregnancy” because it often (although not always) occurs in pregnant women. It’s a painless condition that doesn’t present any health risks which more likely to get Melasma if you’re a woman or have darker skin.

If you’ve noticed darker splotches on your face, you’re not alone–nearly 6 million American women are in the same boat.

There are lots of things that can cause Melasma, but the two most common triggers are:

  • Hormones: Hormone fluctuations, like those during pregnancy or when starting new birth control, can cause Melasma.
  • Sun Exposure: We all know the sun is the enemy of youthful skin, and here’s just one more reason to use SPF. The sun can cause Melasma or worsen existing cases.

There are ways to reduce and even eliminate Melasma. Do you remember that slightly terrifying insta of Kim K getting her “vampire blood” facial? Well, that was a form of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). Recent studies have found that PRP is actually a very effective treatment for Melasma.

Platelet-Rich Plasma is basically a superfood for your skin cells. When injected into the skin’s membrane, it adds a boost of collagen and stimulates new blood vessels and cell growth. You’ll see results are just 2-3 injections.

Microneedling is another minimally invasive solution for melasma. PRP and Microneedling are like Batman and Robin–they work better together.

During microneedling, the estheticians at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa uses teeny tiny needles to create pores in the top of your skin. This does two things: it allows topical treatments to penetrate deeper and work better, and it stimulates the production of collagen. So you can get rid of Melasma and reduce your wrinkles in one fell swoop.

When you add PRP on-top of microneedling, you’ll get a dynamic duo that will wow you with the results. One last word of warning before you make your appointment–Melasma is known to come back, every now and then. If you don’t want to do this whole process twice, don’t forget the golden rule of skincare: SPF, SPF, SPF!

What is PRP? Platelet-Rich Plasma for Hair Loss

Have you heard of PRP for hair loss? It may be the answer you’ve been looking for and it’s available at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. This smart technology offers medical intervention and can help you with your hair loss. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma which helps with follicular development, stimulates the scalp, and encourages hair growth.

Blood is removed from your vein, and then they put it in a centrifuge which spins the blood, separating it into different layers. One layer in particular is the one that is helpful in targeting hair loss issues—the platelet-rich plasma.

This plasma is then injected back into you, via your scalp and helps stimulate growth.

One of the most important things to point out when you’re considering PRP treatment is to start it as soon as you notice shedding. The sooner you start, the better. Staying ahead of hair loss is half of the battle.

This medical treatment is a great choice to tackle the issue before it gets worse. When you increase the blood supply to the areas lacking in it, you’re going to then help rejuvenate the scalp and hair follicles. Creating new hair growth is essential, and then making sure it has the right nutrients is crucial. PRP treatments help you each step of the way.

Also, another thing to mention is that this procedure can be helpful for both men and women when it comes to helping thinning hair. Again, the key is getting the treatment early in the hair loss process. The sooner you get started after you notice excess shedding, the better.

Nobody likes dealing with hair loss, but with PRP there’s a treatment that’s finally helping many people, both men and women, tackle the embarrassing issue of balding and hair thinning.

If you’d like to learn more about PRP for hair loss or any of our med spa services, please visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona at (480) 912-5325.

When You Care About Results, Trust iS Clinical Active Serum

As we age, small signs in our skin give us away. A dull complexion, fine lines, and even another round of adult acne can crop up. It’s fine to target short term goals, but wouldn’t it make sense to use a product that focuses on both the short-term and long-term appearance of your skin? At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, we have specialized products to help with any skincare goal you may have.

iS Clinincal partnered with a team of physicians and pharmacologists to give you a skincare serum you can trust. It’s cutting-edge advanced and a product you can count on.

This smart serum not only improves the appearance of your dull and acne-prone skin, but it helps smooth the appearance of your fine lines. You’ll also look healthier as it targets hyperpigmentation, redness, and helps soften your skin texture.

There are a few active ingredients to point out, so you can see the care that was put into Active Serum. First, you’ll love the salicylic acid, which acts as a gentle exfoliant and helps with the aging process of your skin, as well as improving the texture.

While it’s loaded with herbal extracts, there are two we’d particularly like to mention. Bilberry extract is full of antioxidants which you know helps banish free radicals. You’ll appreciate the protection. Another ingredient worth mentioning is willow bark extract which soothes and calms the skin. This will help you with redness and flare-ups.

With iS Clinical, you can take care of those immediate concerns, all while knowing you’ve got a product that will continue to help improve the appearance of your skin long-term.

If you have combination skin, acne-prone or oily skin, this is a great product to add to your skincare routine. It’s also a great choice for those with mature skin and can help with your dull complexion and everchanging needs while helping you tackle those pesky little signs of aging.

Understanding IV Nutrient Therapy

Our bodies regularly get vitamins through nutrition and supplements, but what happens when you need a boost because your immune system or metabolism is sluggish? There are multiple ways to increase your dosage of certain vitamins, but there’s a catch. Even though you’re putting vitamins into your body via eating healthy, there’s a limit to how much your body can absorb at one given time.

Did you know that the way that food breaks down, you’re only absorbing about 50 percent of those vitamins that you ingested? There’s a better way that allows your body to absorb more of what you need—in fact, it offers a 90 percent absorption rate.

IV Nutrient Therapy at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is an option that puts you in the driver’s seat. With this method of vitamin delivery, you can invest in your body by getting more of what you intended.

Not only do you get higher absorption, but it works faster, so you’ll enjoy the benefits quicker and more efficiently.

Have you heard of Lipotropic injections? These are injections that introduce a highly specialized dose of ingredients to help target cholesterol issues, fat issues, along with helping to detox the body. They do this, all while helping boost your metabolism.

They start with a base of B12, which we all know is great for your body, but are you familiar with other B vitamins, or only the “popular ones” that get spoken about. Have you heard of Inositol? This is also known as B8, though it doesn’t get the same exposure that B12 or B6 does, you’ll want to know about the benefits this B vitamin can do for your body. Here’s a neat tip, it’s actually a sugar! But, this sugar does great things like helping your cell membranes, helps metabolize fat, and aids in nerve synapses. It also helps with serotonin levels and interacts with insulin. In fact, Healthline states that… “research suggests that additional inositol in the form of supplements may have numerous health benefits.”

What other ingredients will you find in B12-MIC IV Nutrient Therapy?

The C in MIC is Choline. According to Medical News Today, Choline supports DNA synthesis, helps metabolize fat, and helps with cell maintenance.

The M stands for Methionine. This is an essential amino acid you find in things like meat and dairy. This important nutrient acts as an antioxidant to help detoxify your body. According to the National Library of Medicine, this powerhouse also is… “required for growth and tissue repair…and is involved in many detoxifying processes…protects cells from pollutants, slows cell aging…”

Because it’s an injected source of vitamins, there are a few important things to know before getting started. First, always work with a practitioner that is both well-qualified and that you trust. Also, with it being an injection, it’s always smart to consult with your doctor to make sure you don’t have any contraindications such as kidney disease because people with kidney disease lack the proper filtration that your body needs to process excess minerals. It’s always important to know what your body is deficient in. Know what you’re lacking, so you can seek out sources that will help you. Take your health back into your hands and find solutions that are effective and can help you feel better.

IV Nutrient Therapy has been around for over 50 years. The more we learn about potent combinations, the more we’re able to create specialized mixtures that enhance and help our bodies.

If you’d like to know more about IV Nutrient Therapy and how it can help you, please visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa (480) 912-5325.
