1. Don’t visit a steam room.
2. Don’t wash your face.
3. Try not to touch face, especially no picking ( always good not just after facials ).
4. Avoid the sun as much as possible and wear sunscreen ( again, always a good idea not just after facials).
5. No other procedures at home or spa for 72 hours ( don’t want to sensitize the skin ).
6. No make-up.

“High frequency facial machines work in conjunction with high frequency electrodes which are made of clear tempered glass and come in a variety different shapes and sizes to facilitate the treatment of various contours of the face and body. When the high frequency electrode is firmly inserted into the high frequency hand piece, a gentle alternating electrical current is generated by the high frequency machine which then passes through the attached glass electrode upon contact with the skin. This contact ignites the inert gas within the electrode which produces healing electrical light energy and unstable oxygen which instantly converts into purifying ozone. In other words, when mixed with the air outside of the electrode, the electrical current infuses the skin with rejuvenating oxygen molecules and a therapeutic zapping or tingling sensation is experienced.” Joyfulyoga
What a difference lash extensions, tinting, threading and microdermabrasion facials can make!
I started Alluring Face Pdx in 2013 because I wanted to help people feel good about themselves on the outside so they would have the confidence to be who they are on the inside. The services that I offer, threading, tinting, lash extensions, facials and microdermabrasion, are services that I like to have done on me to feel better about myself. My business is unique in that it offers the aforementioned services under one roof. For now I enjoy being a sole proprietor ( a one woman show ) but who knows what the future will bring ! - Kara
Brow shape matters because it helps to balance features, frame your face, make you look happier, and look younger.
Oval face: prominent cheekbones, forehead larger then cheeks tapering down to a narrow chin.
Round face: face widest at cheeks and face is as long as it is wide
Long face: jawline, cheekbones and forehead are all approximately the same width and face tapers to a narrow chin
Square face: jawline, cheekbones and forehead all about the same width and squared jawline is the most prominent feature
Heart face: is like the oval face except chin is more pointed
Diamond face: very angular face and is wider at the temples and forehead is short ( not common )
First discovered in Asia, threading is a ancient hair removal technique.
To remove the hair from the brows the client closes their eyes and stretches the skin around the brows so that the hair is pulled out without nicking the skin. The threader then uses a special type of thread and technique to create a small lasso like shape to pull the hairs out from their roots. No heat or chemicals are used. Threading is great for all skin types but especially sensitive skin. Proper hygiene practice before and after is important to avoid pimples and irritation. Threading is more precise (gets hairs just above the skin surface) and last longer then waxing. Other common areas for threading are the face and neck.

Microdermabrasion sounds too good to be true, a simple procedure that can make your skin look younger in a matter of minutes. There must be a catch, right?! Wrong!
WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF MICRODERMABRASION?
There are virtually no risks associated with having microdermabrasion performed by a licensed and skilled esthetician. It’s a totally noninvasive procedure and it doesn’t use any harsh chemicals. It’s gentle enough that you could have it done during your lunch break. In fact, it only takes about 30 minutes, is not painful, and leaves skin immediately refreshed. At worst, you may have some minor redness and increased sensitivity for up to 24 hours. It is extremely important to use proper sun protection following microdermabrasion, as removing the outer layer leaves skin more susceptible to sun damage.
WHAT ABOUT AT HOME MICRODERMABRASION KITS?
Don’t waste your time or money on these. At home microdermabrasion is NOT the same as professional microdermabrasion.
Professional machines are far more powerful than at home machines and a skilled esthetician will remove way more dead, dry skin without causing damage. Also, like a teenager cutting her own bangs in front of a mirror, there’s no protection from taking a little too much off and causing long-term damage. Some things are best left to the pros.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MICRODERMABRASION?
The frequency of treatments varies depending on your skin type and specific needs; it is often between 2-8 weeks. Kara, at Alluring Face Pdx, will help you determine the best course of action for your skin. Go to alluringfacepdx.com to schedule your first microdermabrasion session with Kara right away.
