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.

What is a Brazilian Blowout? 

Unless you’ve been hiding out in a cave for the last few years, you’ve undoubtedly have overheard some rave-review about a  Brazilian blowout. It’s not some kind of cocktail or south american steakhouse, but actually a life-changing hair treatment for those suffering from frizzy locks. The incredible results make it a must at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, but we want to give you a little more information. 

Frizz and unmanageable hair doesn’t discriminate, happening to the best of us, and even those who are religious conditioners and product obsessed. Brazilian Blowouts eliminates frizz and promotes intense shine by way of liquid keratin. The treatment bonds to your hair to create a intense layer around each strand, sealing the cuticle and soothes frizz. After you’ve gotten the Brazilian blowout, your hair will essentially have it’s own armor, making it more resilient to heat styling. The process to apply the Brazilian blowout takes about an hour to an hour and a half, but think of the time you’ll save by not having to fight frizz in the mornings. Given that you keep up your Brazilian blowout with the appropriate products (we can help!), your treatment should last up to four months, or possibly longer. 

Imagine, finally having a long-lasting solution to frizzy hair and all of the energy you’ll save by not having to wake up half and hour earlier to straighten your hair. For more information about Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa’s Brazilian Blowouts or other salon services, please visit or call us 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.

A Firefighter’s Testament on IV Nutrient Therapy

There’s no denying the massive benefits of IV Nutrient Therapy for the average person, but what happens when the treatment is put to the ultimate test? Trent McMinn, a local firefighter recruit, recently discovered IV Nutrient Therapy at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa and learned first hand the value of this treatment while training at the fire academy. As you can imagine, the training to become a firefighter is no small task— constant physical demand, grueling climate conditions and lots of heavy gear. We caught up with Mr. McMinn to discuss how IV Nutrient Therapy helped him in his challenging training to become a firefighter.

How long have you been doing IV Nutrient Therapy and when did you first see the results?

I have been doing the IV Nutrient Therapy for the past two months, and I honestly felt the results right away, I noticed I was sleeping a lot better and deeper, and when I’d wake up in the morning it wasn’t the normal drag out of bed, I felt great.

What do you do for and how does this treatment benefit you on the job?

I am currently a Firefighter recruit going through the fire academy and will be on the fire truck starting in January after the academy ends. So far the benefits have been amazing due to the physical and mental stress that comes with being in the fire academy. I have noticed my body being able to recover faster and I feel more alert and have a better sense of well being.

What made you want to start IV Nutrient Therapy?

Once I got my job offer for the fire department and was about to start the academy I knew I was going to have to be able to perform at very high levels for the next 15 weeks and wanted to give my body the boost it would need to stay healthy, I started looking around at maybe a vitamin B shot, but then found the IV Nutrient Therapy offered at Colair and decided to give it a shot.

Are you planning on sticking with these treatments? 

I am planning on sticking with it because of the daily stresses that come with the role of being a firefighter even after my academy is over. I want to stay healthy and be able to provide the service the community deserves.

So there you have it. If IV Nutrient Therapy can help a gentleman survive the demands of fireman training, imagine the benefits for yourself? Not just for fatigue, this treatment is also aides with hypertension, infections and among many others, depression. Flying commercial or stuck in a tight public space? This treatment helps boost ones immune system so you’re less likely to catch that cold that’s been going around. Not unlike the Myer’s Cocktail, IV Nutrient Therapy at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is a vitamin-mix ‘push’ treatment that takes around five minutes and is administered by our on-site Registered Nurse.

What is Dysport? Compare to Botox

Have you ever thought about getting cosmetic injections to treat your wrinkles and fine lines? With over 3 million botulinum toxin injections occurring every year, wrinkle erasing injections are a popular, safe, and effective method to treat signs of aging on the face.

These injections are most commonly referred to as “botox”. However, Botox is only one brand of botulinum toxin injection that can be used. Dysport is another brand of botulinum toxin that is also used to treat the appearance of wrinkles.

At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, Dysport and Botox are some of the many different cosmetic injections we offer. Dysport injections will smooth out the signs of aging in your skin, resulting in a younger appearance in just a few days.

But what is Dysport, and how long does Dysport take to work? What are the differences between Dysport vs. Botox? Keep reading to find out all there is to know about Dysport. 

What Is Dysport? 

Dysport is a formulation and brand of botulinum toxin Type A, or more specifically of abobotulinumtoxinA. Dysport is injected into the skin and can be used for both medical and cosmetic purposes. 

At Colair Beauty Loung & Med Spa, we use Dysport for cosmetic purposes only. This injection is used to treat the wrinkles that occur between your eyebrows, commonly referred to as “11 lines” or “frown lines”, forehead lines and “crows feet” or “smile lines” near the eyes. 

The appearance of frown lines can become quite pronounced as you age, and these lines will typically grow deeper with time. Dysport can help erase the appearance of these stubborn wrinkles, and leave you with more youthful-looking skin. 

How Does Dysport Treat Wrinkles?

Wrinkles form as a result of repetitive muscle movement in specific parts of the face. For example, raising and furrowing your eyebrows repeatedly over the course of many years can lead to forehead wrinkles and frown lines. 

Dysport wrinkle injections target and reduce the muscle contractions that lead to fine lines and wrinkles between your eyebrows. 

It is only approved to treat frown lines. However, if you are concerned about the signs of aging on other parts of your face or body, there’s no need to worry! 

At Colair, we offer a wide variety of anti-aging beauty solutions. From other anti-aging injectables to thorough facials and miraculous chemical peels, our team can help you decide which options work best for you and your skin!

The Results: How Long Does Dysport Take To Work? 

One of the many benefits of Dysport is that it is fast-acting, with most people starting to see results within 2-3 days! The full and final results should only take a 7-14 days to appear, making Dysport one of the fastest wrinkle treatments.

As with all other anti-aging injectables, the results of Dysport are not permanent. Most people need Dysport touch-ups every 3-4 months, which provides an added benefit for first-time users that want to try wrinkle injections without a lengthier time commitment. 

Dysport vs. Botox

Dysport and Botox are both anti-aging injectables that we proudly offer at Colair. These injections are both formulations and brands of botulinum toxin Type A. Though Dysport and Botox have similar qualities, there are also important differences between these two cosmetic injections. 

The differences between Dysport and Botox come from the different proteins involved. As mentioned previously, Dysport is formulated with abobotulinumtoxinA. Botox, however, uses a slightly different botulinum toxin called onabotulinumtoxinA. 

The different formulations of Botox and Dysport account for key differences between both treatments including:

  • Treatment areas
  • The time it takes for results
  • How long do results last
  • Cost of treatment

Treatment Areas: Botox vs. Dysport 

Botox and Dysport are both used to treat wrinkles in the upper half of the face. 

Dysport is approved to treat wrinkles between the eyebrows. These wrinkles, commonly called “frown lines”, can be effectively lessened with Dysport injections. 

Botox can also treat wrinkles between the eyebrows. However, Botox can treat areas other than frown lines, including the crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes) and forehead wrinkles. 

Time It Takes For Results 

One will start to see the results of Dysport after only 2-3 days, with final results appearing after one week. 

Botox results may not appear until one week after injection, with results taking as long as one month to appear on the face.

How Long Do Results Last?

Dysport and Botox wrinkle injections can last anywhere from 3-4 months, with some people seeing results for even longer.  

Cost of Treatment

Between Dysport and Botox, Dysport is the most cost-effective option. 

At Colair, one unit of Botox costs $10.50, whereas Dysport costs $4.50 per unit. However, with Dysport you need double the Botox units. In the end you may save a little with Dysport. This may be something to consider when deciding on which wrinkle injection suits you best, however both options will be thoroughly discussed with Colair’s Registered Nurse prior to treatment. 

Benefits of Dysport

Dysport is a great and effective option for treating stubborn frown line wrinkles. The benefits of botox are numerous, and include: 

  • Fast results (2-3 days)
  • No downtime
  • Lasts 3-4 months
  • Very effective at targeting frown line wrinkles
  • Can be tailored to your specific cosmetic needs

If you’re wondering how to reduce wrinkles, Dysport is a great and safe option available through our skilled injectors at Colair! 

Other Cosmetic Injections

If you have concerns about other signs of aging on other parts of your face that neither Dysport nor Botox don’t cover, don’t worry! Our services at Colair provide a number of other anti-aging treatments. 

If you are concerned about fine lines around your mouth, or if you’re worried about a loss of volume in your face due to aging, then fillers are another great option for you. 

These cosmetic injections will increase volume in the skin, and fill in deep-set lines on other parts of your face. Many people opt to get both Botox/Dysport and filler to maximize anti-aging results!

Say Goodbye to Fine Lines and Wrinkles

What is Dysport, how long does it take to work, and what are the differences between Dysport vs. Botox? Now that you have the answers to these questions, and even more information regarding Dysport wrinkle injections, the next step is booking your treatment!

Our Creative Director’s Six Must-Have Products

There’s a seemingly never-ending around of advice on which beauty products to buy. If you’re looking for the opinion of a true-pro, and one with 20+ years of experience, let us introduce you to our creative director, Gretchen Weidman. She’s here to dish about her six must-have products, that you can pick up today from Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa.

Gretchen Weidman, Creative Director of Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa

1.) I literally can not say enough good things about Pai-Shau, therefore, I must start this list with the incomparable Biphasic Infusion. Perhaps the crown jewel of the brand, the infusion is loaded with tea and all their antioxidants— it not only gives the hair amazing shine but protects from heat damage. Also, because the infusion isn’t an oil, you can totally indulge without the fear of having a soggy-looking scalp.

2.) There’s really nothing like the Cleanse Shampoo from Nuema. Because of the peppermint essential oil that’s packed into the shampoo, it’s the most refreshing thing that will ever happen to your scalp. I’m also in love with the fact that this product is without sulfates and completely organic. This is a great product for everyone in the family.

3.) For dry summer ravaged-hair, the mask from Pai-Shau is a miracle in a jar. After you’ve let the mask sit five to seven minutes, rinse it off in the shower and you’re ready to go. The products from Pai-Shau, are busting with oat and rice protein— that means you’re safe to use this on the daily, including the shampoo!

4.) If you’re looking for thee perfect styling product, look no further than the Clay Pomade from Nuema. It doesn’t create a film on the hair, has a light scent and leaves the hair flexible— allowing you to change up your look freely.

5.) I’m a sucker for lux products, so I must mention the Opulent Volume Shampoo from Pai-Shau. This liquid gold doesn’t leave your hair feeling like Velcro as most other shampoos do, rather you’re going to find yourself with smooth locks. In addition to the shampoo, the conditioner softens the cuticle and leaves your hair light as a feather— no heavy hair here.

6.) I can not do this list without mentioning my favorite hairspray, the Sublime Flexible from Pai-Shau. If you need control but movement, this product is the ticket. Strong enough to hold curls and fly-aways, yet soft enough to run your fingers through— without ever flaking on you mid-day.

For more information about the products listed above or to schedule an appointment with our creative director, give us a call at (480) 912-5325
