How to Treat Blackheads

If our faces were a house, blackheads would be cockroaches. They seemingly infest our mug, and once you think you’ve gotten rid of them, one springs up. But fear not! Your friends at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa are here to help with a few tips and treatments.

What are Blackheads?

But to destroy an enemy, you first must know what it is. Blackheads are a mix of oxidized dead skin cells and oils, sitting in pores. It’s the exposure to air, that makes the pores turn black. Though there’s a lot you can do to stay on top of them, there’s a big genetic disposition to blackheads/pore size. One of the best tools in your arsenal against blackheads is salicylic acid. It’s a beta hydroxy acid that works to remove excess oils and help exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface of your face. Colair not only sells products from SkinMedica that includes salicylic acid, but a few of our facials use them as well.

Treating Blackheads

Though it might be tempting to pick at those stubborn blackheads, you should leave it to the professionals with a facial. Picking can leave you with an infection and then possibly scarring. Extractions during a facial at Colair make all the difference. We start off by steaming the pores, which opens them up, and after some magical topical solutions, we can manually clean up all of those pores. After a facial with us, one of our highly trained aestheticians can point you in the right direction for product. You’re going to want to keep your skin moisturized, it helps keep the skin balances so you don’t overproduce oil.

Get Rid of Blackheads for Good

So if blackheads are your enemy #1, allow us to help. Our amazing staff and lineup of clinical strength products will do the job nicely. If you’d like to learn more about our facials, products or spa services, please visit Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa or call us at (480) 912-5325.

Five Reasons to Love the Emage Image Pro 3D 

It feels like Christmas at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. The most incredible piece of beauty technology has landed at your favorite Gilbert med spa. The Emage Image Pro 3D is going to change the way you approach skincare. Though we could go on and on, here’s five reasons to love this incredible piece of tech.

Emage technology at Colair

1.) Pulls Up the Finest Details

Not unlike some ocean floor scan, the Emage Image Pro 3D can actually show us a 3D scan of your face; pores, depressions and even sun spots. This is the ultimate intel report, showing us the intimate details of your skin.

2.) Identifies Future Problem Areas

Want to know the future of your skin? With this marvelous tool, those scans of your skin can actually tell us what and where your future problem-areas are going to be. This will allow you to make decisions to soften issues, before they’re even issues.

3.) Shows Sun Damage

Sometimes we need a harsh reminder of the sun’s damage to our faces, especially living in Arizona. This skin imaging tool shows us sun spots, telling us if you should receive treatments and where to focus at. Most of all, this is the ultimate sunscreen reminder.

4.) Gives You Insight Into Your Med Spa Treatment

Have you been interested in that amazing med spa treatment, but just can’t picture what the results will look like on you? Sometimes those before and after shots can be a little less than relatable. With the Emage Image Pro 3D, we can show you YOUR face and the projected results of treatments. You will actually be able to see the results on your face, not some strangers. This will inspire confidence in your decision making for treatments.

5.) Shows Results and Treatment Progress

You won’t have to rely on bathroom selfies to see the progress you’ve made after your treatments. Because the Emage Image 3D Pro captures the state of your skin in such an in-depth manor, we will be able to show you the results and progress of your treatments in near microscopic details. Seeing the results of your treatment will provide confidence in your investment in yourself.

If you’d like to learn more about this state-of-the-art skin imaging tool and how it can help you achieve your skincare goals, please visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa at (480) 912-5325.

Got Sun Spots? We’ve got Solutions

They’re referred to by a few names— sunspots, liver spots, or age spots— but what is for sure, is that these dark spots on our skin age us drastically. At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa we understand your desire to look and feel your best, so even though some might tell you to overlook a few dark spots on your skin, we’re here to help handle them. Very common in adults over 50, but sun spots also appear in younger people as well, they’re the byproduct of prolonged sun exposure and the melanin becomes gathered in specific areas.  Of course, sun protection is the key to the prevention of sun spots, but even if you do everything correctly, your chances of landing a sunspot are still pretty high. So what can you do to diminish them? Here are a few ideas at your favorite Gilbert med spa.

1.) Chemical Peels

One of the most effective treatments you can use to address age spots is chemical peels. The treatment is a solution that’s applied by one of our amazing aestheticians, which helps remove the outer layer of skin. Kind of like an eraser for your complexion, the chemical peel provides a glow and helps with wrinkles and other blemishes.

2.) Dermaplaning

Want to see a big difference on your skin quickly? Dermaplaning is a painless treatment that takes a matter of minutes, but with incredible results. Performed by one of our talented aestheticians, dermaplaning is the act of using a scalpel to gently scrape the dead skin from your skin. This provided a more even complexion and permits your skincare products to go deeper in the skin. 

3.) Microneedling

One of the reasons why age spots darken as we age is that there’s a lack of new cells being created, one way to aid this is with a process called microneedling. The treatment starts with a topical numbing agent, then with a pen containing several very tiny needles which then are injected into the skin, creating collagen induction channels. These small ‘injuries’ made to the face causes the body to start a healing process, where collagen is sent and ultimately leads to more youthful-looking skin.   For more information about how Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa can help with your sunspot concerns or any skincare goals, please visit or call us at (480) 912-5325.

Four Wellness Treatments to try in your 20s

There’s probably a trillion things you wish you could tell your 20-something self; skip that, do this, the pizza is gonna catch up to you, etc. But what specifically would you tell yourself about skincare and self-care? I think we could all collectively agree that we wish we would have worn more sunscreen, but at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, we’ve got some pointers for 20-somethings. 

Preventive Botox 

Botox before I have deep wrinkles? I know, it seems like a crazy concept. But those cute fine lines on your face today can be tomorrow’s deep forehead canals. Preventive Botox is a wonderful solution to soften the effects of aging before it even begins by freezing those wrinkle-causing facial expressions with Botox. 

Facials 

After we’ve come out of the damning days of having acne, most of us are terrified of hydrating our faces or risking any kind of breakout, but that’s all backwards. Spending time getting facials not only hydrates your skin (which gives our oil glands a timeout), but also can help clear up congestion in your pores, minimizing the chances of future breakouts. 

Product Investment 

Oh the things you blew your money on when you were younger. There’s no better way to spend your money than investing it back into yourself, especially your skin. At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, we’re so happy to offer SkinMedica. Not your drugstore kind of product, SkinMedica is backed by science to give your face the best results, and ultimately fighting aging. 

IV Nutrient Therapy 

Surely, in your 20s you put your body through all types of challenges, including how can one human drink before death and other strenuous activities. Wouldn’t you have loved a treatment that softened the blow of hangovers? Alas, our IV Nutrient Therapy does just that and more. A direct line of vitamins and hydration, IV Nutrient Therapy assists with all types of bodily issues. 

Regardless if you’re a 20-something or further down the road of life, it’s not too late to incorporate any of the above treatments into your life. Feeling and looking good doesn’t take a backseat at any point in your life. For more info about any of these services, or how we can help you feel and look your best, please visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa at (480) 912-5325.

Do you need Botox? Four Signs You Do

These days it’s hard to find someone who hasn’t dipped their toe in the BOTOX pool. That neighbor who looks suddenly ‘refreshed’, the guy at work who took years off his face in a few days and that one cousin who seems to be tricking time with each family gathering. They’ve probably have gotten the memo and saw someone for BOTOX. So, is it time for you to come to Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa  to do the same? We’ve got four signs that’ll help you decide. 

1. Forehead Lines

Have you noticed your forehead is looking way too much like a treasure map? Lines and X’s, but no treasure. Forehead furrows or frown lines are one of the first places we start to visibly age on our face. 

2. Smile Lines

Crow’s feet, those pesky lines that form around our mouths. Crow’s feet become most intense when we work the muscles around your eyes. BOTOX blocks this by relaxing the muscles that cause crow feet to appear. 

3. Got TMJ?

TMJ or Temporomadibular when the temporomandibular joint is where the skull and jaw bone connect, acting as kind of hinge for your mouth, are out of alignment. TMJ can cause earaches, pain when you chew and even a change in how your teeth fit together. Our and highly-trained registered nurse injects BOTOX into masseter muscle, allowing the muscle to relax and help with pain caused by persistent grinding and clenching. 

4. You Don’t Have Wrinkles

So, you’re a fresh 20-something who feels like you’re light years away from needing BOTOX? WRONG. Preventive BOTOX is a thing and it works. Within one study, contributors stated that it’s “rarely too early”. In the study on BOTOX, it shows that frown lines, forehead furrows and crows’ feet are caused by repetitive folding of the skin from normal expressions and if you slow down the use of those muscles in your early adult life, the lines never develop.

Chlorine’s Combat on Good Hair

Living in Arizona, we literally construct our schedules around when we’re going to be in the pool. If you’re not already swimming, you’re thinking about the next time you can jump in and cool off, but did you know that pool-time can actually cause havoc on your hair? Chlorine not only dulls your hair but also has a damaging effect, and especially to color-treated hair. Blondes beware; chlorine can have an especially damming effect on your hair and even give it a green tinge. If you can’t get your head above water this summer, try a swim cap or just rinse your with filtered water prior to jumping in. One trick we’ve learned to love, is taking our Pai-Shau Supreme Revitalizing Mask, a magical mixture of tea complex that penetrates the hair follicle, and lathering some on before we have our pool day, so it can soak in deeply and reverse damaged hair. The trick really boils down to saturating the hair with something, so very little chlorine will be able to enter the shaft, as our hair is sponge-like and will soak up anything. 

If you’ve read this tip a little too late, and are noticing your hair is on the crispy side from all of the swimming you’ve done, we can still help. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa has multiple options to get your thirsty hair back into shape. Our Brazilian Blowout Split End Repair Treatment is made just for said issue, as it seals and nourishes split ends, and gives your hair a sleek and healthy look. Also, have you might have heard of the benefits of collagen for your face, but for your hair? Yes, our Demi- Permanent Conditioner is a collagen-based product that deeply conditions and replenishes dry and damaged hair. So, go ahead and take a dip, we’ve got all of your hair-rehab treatments taken care of at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. For more information on how we can help with all of your haircare concerns and other salon services, please visit or call us at (480) 912-5325.

Restylane for Hands

As we age, we lose volume in the back of our hands, giving the appearance of tendons, veins and wrinkles to be more pronounced. At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa we want to address all of your anti-aging concerns, not just those to do with your face. It seems like most of our focus when it comes to anti-aging efforts lands above the shoulders, focusing on wrinkles and lines on the face, and as we go along, we notice our youthful-looking faces do not match our hands. Restylane is an incredible product that allows us to combat the effects of time, and can take years off of our faces and now hands too. 

By using Restylane, we’re able to actually fill in the backside of your hands safely and effectively, providing a more youthful and fuller appearance. Hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in our bodies, provides fullness and elasticity and as we age, depletes, causing a loss of volume and therefore wrinkles. Restylane has been used 30 million times worldwide and is one of our favorite products, because it’s not only safe, but also provides incredible results. If you’re wanting to extend a youthful appearance not only to your face, but also your hands, please visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa at (480) 912-5325.

What is Preventive Botox?

How soon is too soon for Botox? New studies say sooner the better and at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, we can’t help but agree. There’s a lot of brow-raising discussions about a younger audience benefiting from using Botox long term. Within the study, contributors stated that it’s “rarely too early”. In the study on Botox, it shows that frown lines, forehead furrows and crows’ feet are caused by repetitive folding of the skin from normal expressions and if you slow down the use of those muscles in your early adult life, the lines never develop.

So if you’re a 20-something and thinking that Botox isn’t something you need to consider for decades, think again. It’s basic beauty-instincts to follow certain anti-aging and preventive measures like wearing sunscreen, applying night cream and drinking water, but imagine altogether halting the development of wrinkles before they even start?

So, what is Botox? Contrary to what many believe—Botox isn’t shipped from heaven— rather, it is Botulinum toxin type A, a wonder drug made to smooth out lines by preventing muscles from contracting. Believe it or not Botox has been around for 100 years. Initially approved for treating eyelid spasms, Botox then went on to be used for bladder spasms and excessive sweating, then in 2002, it was approved by the FDA for treatment of wrinkles on the upper face. Located in Agritopia, Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is your one-stop skincare destination and our experts are ready to answer your questions about Botox and other med spa services.  If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of Botox or have questions, please do not hesitate to visit or call us at (480) 912-5325.
