Post Chemical Peel Tips 

A good chemical peel can do wonders. In the hands of a trained professional, a series of skin-friendly chemicals are applied to your skin to help with skin texture, reduce pore size and lighten pigmentation. At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, we offer a few similar treatments, including our VI Chemical Peels.

Here’s a few great tips for after your peel, so you can get the best results from your treatment.

No Touchy: One of the biggest battles after your chemical peel will be fighting the urge to scratch, pull or pick at your skin. Doing this can lead to scarring, which is counterproductive.

More Moisture: You’ll want to ditch your usual skincare routine. Moisturizer and sunscreen are all you’ll need. Make sure you’re applying face cream throughout the day which helps with the peeling process.

Flaky Fashion: If you’re not wanting to look like you survived a snow storm, avoid dark clothes whilst peeling. Go for something light, because dead skin loves dark clothing and that isn’t cute.

Want to lear more about the benefits of chemical peels and the facials at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa? We’d love to have you in our incredible Gilbert, Arizona location and show you around. Please swing by or call us at (480) 912-5325.

Our RN Reveals her Skincare Routine 

If you’re not already aware, when you’re coming to Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, you’re not just in the hands of some random professional, but the best in their field. We’re lucky enough to have a registered nurse on staff for all of our med spa services. Meet Michelle Nemchick. With 11 years of ICU and aesthetic nursing experience, she knows a thing or two about skincare. We sit down with Michelle and dish about her favorite skincare products and why she loves them.

“First of all, my job exposes me to a lot of skincare products. I get to test the best of the best. But I’d be lying if I didn’t say my favorite was iS Clinical. If you’re looking for a line of products that actually works, this is it. It’s amazing for all ages, genders and for all types of skin concerns. It’s a better product because of the research and ingredients that go into it.”

Cleanser: “I’m absolutely crazy about the Warming Honey Cleanser. I find most {cleansers} strip my skin, but this luxurious gel not only smells incredible but cleanses deeply, and leaves your skin moisturized.”

Serum: “After I’ve washed my skin, it’s time to slather on a serum. It’s a vital step in my regimen, because it helps seal the moisture in the skin before you apply any kind of cream/ moisturizer. I reach for the Youth Serum, a potion that helps with the signs of aging. My skin suddenly has more bounce and smooths out my skin before makeup.”

Moisturizer: “Right, so living in Arizona it’s vital we load up on hydration for our skin. It doesn’t matter how much Botox we get, if your skin is dry, it’s going to age you terribly. I really enjoy the Reparative Moisture Emulsion for an all-over moisturizer; it’s gonna help protect your skin from environmental aggressors and really work on fine line and wrinkles.”

SPF: “Between your serum and moisturizer, you should wait a minute or so. Brush your teeth, etc and let that good stuff soak in. After I’ve applied my moisturizer in and waited a min, I move onto the most vital part of my routine. SPF isn’t an option. Mom, Dad, Kids, and dog (joking) should wearing SPF Daily. And at least a SPF 30. I opt for the iS Clinical Eclipse SPF 50+ because it goes on sheer, light and doesn’t mess with my makeup.”

iS Clinical is available at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, AZ. We’d love to show you this amazing line of products and tell you how it might help with any of your skincare concerns. Please visit are Gilbert, Arizona location or call us at (480) 912-5325.

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

Got Sun Spots? We’ve got Solutions

They’re referred to by a few names— sun spots, 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 that 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 prevention of sun spots, but even if you do everything correctly, your chances of landing a sun spot are still pretty high. So what can you do to diminish them? Here’s 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 provide a glow and help 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 aide 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 to 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 younger looking skin.

The Manly Man’s Guide to Med Spas 

Somewhere through the macho pages of history, gents got this notion that they weren’t allowed to have their own time at the spa. Though Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa provides outstanding services for women, we’re equally passionate about men visiting us for med spa treatments as well. You work out, try to look your best and yet you might be thinking med spas aren’t for you? Alas, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Firstly, let’s talk about Brotox, or Botox for Bros. Botox is a injectable used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, and our incredible registered nurse can even maintain your ruggedly-handsome looks, giving you a more refreshed, youthful look. 

Maybe you’re finding yourself feeling a little out of it and run down? Try our IV Nutrient Therapies. For the gym rats, or party boys, IV Nutrient Therapy is ideal. Available in both traditional drip and ‘push’ form, IV Nutrient Therapy allows you to receive a plethora of vitamins and good stuff directly into your bloodstream. Not only can it help with issues like fatigue, hypertension and infections, but it can also help alleviate a wild night on the town, making that hangover a little softer. If you’re looking to recovery faster from intense workouts at the gym, IV Nutrient Therapy helps with muscle recovery. 

Maybe you’re going a little thin on top? We can even help with that too. There isn’t a thinning-haired fella around who can’t say he wished there was a solution, and that’s why we have PRP for hair loss. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and it’s important here because the growth factors found in your own plasma act as a kind of messengers, telling skin cells to function and help stimulate activity in the follicles to promote hair growth. The treatment starts with a easy and simple blood draw from our registered nurse, where we draw your blood and separate the plasma from the red blood cells by way of a machine that spins the liquid quickly. From there, the PRP will be injected into the locations on your scalp where you’d like to see hair growth.

So next time you hear your lady-friend mention she’s headed to see us for an appointment, don’t be afraid to come in for your own service. If you’d like to learn more about any of the treatments discussed above, or any of our other men’s med spa services, please visit Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa 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 father 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.

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.

Five Reason to Love Dermaplaning

If you ask any serious beauty-buff what the secret to glowing skin is, you’ll more than likely get an earful about dermaplaning. Done by taking a scalpel and scraping the top layers of dead skin off, dermaplaning sounds way more terrifying than it actually is. For the sake of not looking like you got into a fight with a blender, this treatment should only be done by a professional like the ones at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. We offer this service as an add-on to our facials. Below are some reasons why we’re obsessed with dermaplaning.

1.) It helps reduce signs of aging

Dermaplaning actually helps promote the production of matrix proteins such as collagen and elastin which therefore reduces the signs of aging.

2.) Makes Your Skincare Absorb Better 

With all of that dead skin removed, your products will penetrate your skin so much better. You’ll find that you’re using less cream/serum and it glides on much easier.

3.) Helps Battle Acne 

Not just for giving you a glowing complexion, dermaplaning helps with “hyperkeratosis” which is a buildup of the top layer of skin, that not only dulls your complexion but also contributes to acne.

4.) Removes Peach Fuzz

Who isn’t without those random patches of ‘baby hair’? Since dermaplaning is essentially shaving down your face, you’ll lose the hair and dead skin cells at the same time.

5.) Even Skin Tone

Besides just improving the texture of your skin, it even helps the color of your skin to appear more even— especially great for hyper pigmentation!
