Smoking and Straws: Lips Biggest Enemies

Few aesthetic aging signs are as damning as line around the lips or smoker’s lines. But the worst part is, you can develop them even if you’ve never picked up a cig. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa knows bad lines and wrinkles happen to good people, and we can help.

Not unlike lines around the eyes or forehead, lip lines care caused by muscle movement. Repetitive moment often results in permanent lines, that become deeper with time. Smoker’s lines are caused by puckering of the lips. Though far less worse than smoking, using a straw creates the same muscle movement that causes said lines.

If you’ve managed to avoid smoker’s lines around the mouth, prevention is everything. Make sure to ditch the cigarettes, straws and wear plenty of SPF. Sun exposure is going to expose the skin cells to damage and effect the appearance of fine lines. Keep the skin around the lips well hydrated.

Perhaps you haven’t been able to dodge these pesky lines, but fear not! Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is here to help at whatever stage your fine lines may be at. We’ve got two very success options to treat lip lines. One being Restylane Silk, a injectable that smooths out the lines around your lips. It’s FDA-approved and made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that your body produces naturally.

Another option is our PRP Treatment. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and it’s an incredible treatment for all types of skin concerns, especially lip lines. How does it work? Our registered nurse draws your blood, separates the blood and then performs microneedling on the targeted areas. The PRP is applied to the face and absorbs into the face, increasing collagen production.

So if you’re suffering from smoker’s lines, or maybe just straw lines, Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona can help. Come by for a free consultation with our RN, or give us a call at (480) 912-5325.

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.

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.

Ways to Extend the Life of Your Color

After finding the perfect stylist and agonizing over which shade, you’ve made the leap into an exciting new hair color— now to maximize the life of your color. What could be more frustrating than achieving your ultimate hair goals, only to see the color fade? With the help of Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa’s expert stylist and amazing products, you’ll be well on your way to long lasting hair color, but here’s a few more tips.

Wash Wisely: Choosing product is just as important as deciding on which salon to visit for your service. Sulfates and sodium chloride strip the hair of color. We suggest Pai-Shau’s Replenishing Hair Cleanser.

Keep it Cool: When rinsing your color treated-hair, you’ll want to avoid hot water because it may allow pigment to escape more freely. Fight the urge to turn up the heat and keep it cool so you don’t see color spinning down the drain.

Avoid the Sun: Not only are the sun’s harmful UV rays damaging to your skin, but also your hair and hair color. Too much sunshine can fade hair and cause hair dehydration. Protect and maximize your treatment with stylizing products that have specific UV absorbers (Pai-Shau offers great items). But if all else fails, just put on a hat.

Moisturize Often: Though it might sound like a simple tip, we can not stress the importance of moisturizing often to extend the life of your hair color. Few products work as well as the Supreme Revitalizing Mask from Pai-Shau, a fan-favorite at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, this magical infusion of polymers not only give your hair the moisture needed, it also has an anti-static barrier.

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!
