Eyebrow Tinting Med Spa | Barrington, IL

Tag Archives: med spa

Tinting the eyebrows can significantly improve your appearance whether you have altered your hair color recently or just want to make some dramatic changes to yourshutterstock 131921414 300x300 - Eyebrow Tinting Med Spa | Barrington, IL look.

But it is not a good idea to simply slap on some dye on the eyebrows as they are located conspicuously on your face. You should choose a qualified med spa with expertise in procedures such as eyebrow tinting.

Tinting the eyebrows involve dying the brow hairs. It does not involve any type of hair removal. However, it can definitely be done in combination with waxing, threading, or tweezing. The process of eyebrow tinting involves applying a dye to the eyebrows and letting it remain for approximately 10 minutes (in case of a vegetable dye).

But what does the brow tint do? It offers the brow hairs shine and evens out the color creating a smoother appearance. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides eyebrow tinting to individuals in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

Suggestions for Brow Tinting

If you are considering a change in your brow color, the following suggestions may help:

Finishing Touches to a New Hair Color

In case you are considering a major change in your hair color and decide to go a few shades darker or lighter or go for an entirely different hue, your natural eyebrow color may not match well with the new hair color. An eyebrow tinting specialist at the med spa will explain that if they are coloring a client’s hair, they usually lighten their brows to an extent as well.

If the expert undertakes a single-process root touch-up, they typically tint the eyebrows with a shade that is one to one-and-a-half hues deeper that the new hair color. This has the benefit of accentuating both the skin tone and eye color.

Do Not Try to Aim for an Exact Match

Going too “matchy-matchy” may not be a good idea. While it does make sense to match the eyebrow color to your hair color, it may not be the most appropriate option. It may be more aesthetically appealing to have a subtle difference between both the shades.

According to tinting experts, you should never use the same hue on the brows as well as the hair. The completely matched look is not necessarily flattering.

Rather, when it comes to deeper shades, she uses the same shade on the eyebrows as she does on hair but also uses 10-volume peroxide on the brows for a contrasting effect. As far as lighter shades are concerned, she uses an oil lightener on the eyebrows for one minute to lighten their appearance.

Leave it to a Pro

While it can be tempting to purchase a boxed hair color at a pharmacy to tint your own eyebrows, but letting a professional med spa colorist work on your eyebrows is ideal. A pro not only has more control over the color in comparison to a box dye, but the application will also be safer in their expert hands.

Specialists recommend that this procedure should only be undertaken as a med spa service due to its proximity to the eyes. Motykie Medical Spa serves people from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for eyebrow tinting.

Eyebrow waxing can quickly and gently define the eyebrow shape for long-lasting results. A majority of beauty salons offer this treatment on the basis of a pre-booked fhfgh 300x275 - Eyebrow Waxing Med Spaappointment.

Brow bars also offer eyebrow waxing for “walk-in” clients. But it is advisable to choose a qualified med spa for eyebrow waxing, which follows the best cosmetic and medical practices to ensure safe and desirable outcomes for every individual.

The advantage of eyebrow waxing is that it will only take a few minutes to have the eyebrows waxed and the re-growth of the brows will occur only after many weeks. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides eyebrow waxing to individuals in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations across the horizon.

What to Expect

If the eyebrows are groomed well, they frame the face and highlight facial features dramatically. It is advisable to allow a professional to create the brow shape, even if you subsequently maintain this shape at home. Prior to the shaping appointment, you need to grow out your eyebrows until bearable to enable their natural form to become apparent.

The med spa treatment provider removes dark as well as lighter fuzzy hair in one instance through the use of small strips and hot wax which they apply using a narrow spatula or a roller ball applicator.

The provider will make sure that the eyebrows are in symmetry and will place an imaginary line from the nose’s end to the outer and inner edge of the eyes for guidance.

Primarily, hair is eliminated from beneath and in-between the brows. The beautician may also trim the brows from the top to develop a sharper definition. The provider will apply a soothing gel at the end of the treatment to cool and address any redness. They will offer you a mirror to evaluate the outcomes.

In case you require modifications, you can certainly ask the beautician to shorten the length or the brow or make the arch shaper. However, it is important not to get carried away and end up with a permanently surprised appearance due to misshapen brows. A well-trained expert will guide you against this and the hair typically re-grows after a while anyway.

Suggestions for Eyebrow Waxing

Some tips that can make the eyebrow waxing more effective are as follows:

  • Ensure that your skin is clean and do not use lotions, moisturizers, and makeup before your eyebrow waxing appointment. If the specialist gets a clean canvas, they will be able to shape your brows more effectively.
  • Do not undergo tanning pre and post your eyebrow shaping service. Waxing leads to skin exfoliation which increases the chances of sunburns and may make the treatment more painful.
  • In case you are using any skin medications, do inform the eyebrow shaping treatment provider. Some medications such as Differin, Retin-A or Accutane may lead to skin irritation if the skin undergoes waxing. You should ideally consult your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Do not tweeze before the eyebrow wax treatment as you may end up overdoing it. It is best to let an expert give your eyebrows the beautiful shape that you desire.

The astute Motykie Medical Spa serves people from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and suburbs in this area of The Golden State for eyebrow waxing.

Millions of men and women across the US are afflicted with hair loss and hair thinning problems. Innovations in hair grafting techniques in recent years have led to the emergence of some innovative, credible and less invasive hair restoration solutions. dgdsg
One such hair grafting treatment that is currently the safest, fastest, most effective and comfortable hair transplant technique on the market with the least downtime and risk and highest stick rate percentage is SmartGraft.
Notable and cutting edge cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides SmartGraft hair transplant procedure to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

Award Winning Technique

SmartGraft procedure has won the prestigious Medical Insights Awards for Best Hair Restoration System for 2016. The award is conferred by the Aesthetic Industry Awards to the safest and most effective medical and cosmetic technologies.
SmartGraft procedure eliminates the need for scalpel and stiches because of its advanced Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) system. Unsightly linear scars can be therefore avoided when harvesting hair follicles for transplantation using this procedure.
The procedure has rapidly gained a competitive edge over other techniques because of its high precision and outstanding aesthetics outcomes.

Key benefits

Some of the vital benefits that give SmartGraft a differentiated edge over competing products include:

  • The procedure allows for more precise and gentle extraction, counting, separation and placement of hair grafts into an environmentally controlled container until implantation.
  • The procedure time is cut down by one-third since the process of counting, sorting, storing and moistening of the hair grafts is fully automated.
  • Patients can achieve superior, more natural and permanent results because the faster implementation of hair grafts increases their stick-rate percentage.

SmartGraft Procedure

The procedure begins with a small area being shaved off at the back of the patient’s head. The area is shaved off in small sections, depending on the hair length required. This makes it easy to cover the donor site after the procedure. A local anesthetic is used for prepping and numbing the recipient site.
The treatment provider will use the SmartGraft device to gently remove hair grafts from the donor area. Immediate collection, sorting, counting and storing of each graft in a sterile environment is facilitated by a fully automated process.
The provider will then create tiny, strategic openings, about the size of a pinprick for implanting the grafts. How natural looking the final result would turn out to be would depend on factors such as the angle, density and placement of each graft.

Patient Experience

The newly transplanted hair with SmartGraft would grow in multiple phases. It takes about a few weeks for the hair to take root, after which it will begin to shed, which is a normal occurrence. New hair would emerge in about three months. Significant improvement can be seen in about six months.
In about 12 to 14 months, patients can experience optimal hair re-growth results. Judicious and dignified plastic surgery expert and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other suburbs and neighborhoods in this area of the southwest for SmartGraft.

Several new and promising hair loss treatments are available today, and leading the pack is PRP scalp injections. At the time of initial consultation, the provider will explain the med spa treatment options to the patient and may also present PRP scalp injection hair transplant before and after photographs. dsgdg-copy
The first concern of a responsible provider will be to educate the patient about PRP injection therapy and help them make a well-considered decision.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides PRP injection treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other communities and suburbs in this part of the southwest.

What are PRP Scalp Injection Before and After Images?

Before and after images in case of PRP scalp injection hair transplant med spa procedure refer to a set of pictures belonging to an earlier patient who has received the same procedure successfully. The set includes images taken prior to the procedure and after the procedure at a stage when all treatment sessions are completed and full hair re-growth results are visible.
The provider will take care to ensure that the photos are obtained with the patient’s full consent and presented before new patients in a discreet manner.
The patient’s identity may be kept confidential as per the standard norm. The sole purpose of the provider in this case is to use these photos as a visual aid to explain the potential results of PRP scalp injection therapy to new patients and help them make informed choices.

Benefits

When a patient is seeking an effective hair loss treatment, it is natural for them to be skeptical about various hair restoration solutions that they may come across. During the PRP scalp injection consultation, the provider can make use of before and after photographs as a transparent tool to reassure and convince the patient about the expected benefits of the treatment.
Some patients may need more extensive PRP therapy, while others may only need to improve thinning hair in a limited area of the head. In a few cases, PRP may also be combined with other hair transplant techniques. In each case, the patient will be better placed to make the right choices when they have access to PRP scalp injection hair transplant before and after photos.

Reasonable Expectations

A patient who is anxious about hair restoration may sometimes form wrong or unrealistic expectations about a hair re-growth procedure. An experienced provider will like to avoid such a situation, and may present PRP scalp injection before and after photos at the outset to avoid any misunderstanding. With access to these photos, the patient will clearly know what to expect and what not to expect from the procedure.
The provider has also an option to create an online photo gallery on their website to give free access to before and after photos to everyone which Dr. Motykie does not do for this particular treatment but there is amazing hair restoration pictures on the site so any patient can ascertain the skills and salient work this clinic provides patients of all walks of live on a daily basis.

Patients should feel free to ask questions and clarify any doubts or concerns before they commit to the treatment. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other communities and towns across the horizon for PRP scalp injection therapy.
What is amazing and should be mentioned here is digital technology. This technology has altered the depth of about every industry there is and the plastic surgery industry is certainly on this list. Countless patients have benefited from this fabulous technology. Now patients do not have rely on a surgeon’s explanation or some vague brochure with pictures that are not that clear.
It is a brave new world and the Motykie Medical Spa is focused on delivering exceptional work for every patient they have.

PRP or platelet rich plasma injections provide an excellent med spa solution to boost hair re-growth in people struggling with hair loss and hair thinning. The treatment works not only to improve hair growth and hair count, but also hair thickness and strength of the new hair. smiling
Motykie Medical Spa, led by the judicious and hardworking cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides PRP injection treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and towns in this part of the country.

The Role of PRP Growth Factors

The two vital components in the blood are plasma and red blood cells. Out of the plasma, which is composed of white blood cells and platelets, is rich in growth factors. Researchers have discovered that these growth factors can work to trigger growth of new hair in the scalp. When injected into the targeted areas, these growth factors regenerate dormant follicles and promote their fresh growth.
Growth factors essentially play the role of a messenger, giving signals to the skin cells to perform their function. Hair follicle stimulation and activity occurs when growth factors are delivered through small injections in PRP therapy.

PRP Scalp Injection Procedure

The procedure begins with the provider drawing a small amount of blood from the patient’s own body (usually the arm). The tube of blood is then put into a machine known as centrifuge, which will spin the blood until the red blood cells and plasma are separated. The plasma is then separated from the mixture because it is rich in platelets.
The purified plasma is then injected directly into the affected sites of the scalp at the precise level of the hair follicles. The procedure must be performed meticulously by a skilled PRP injection provider to achieve the desired results. The small injections begin across the scalp, approximately at every half inch across the targeted area.
The PRP injection med spa treatment session is typically completed in about 30 minutes, but may take a little more if the surface area to be treated is larger. In some cases, PRP scalp injection therapy may also be combined with traditional hair transplant treatment for more effective results.

Safety and Recovery

PRP scalp injection treatment involves minimal to no risk of complications. In fact, many patients may receive the tiny injections even without numbing the affected site. To minimize the pain, the treatment provider may use ice therapy. Mild painkillers such as Tylenol may be recommended after the procedure to mitigate discomfort.
Bruising, if any, will resolve within one to two weeks. The downtime involved is minimal, but the patient should avoid typical hair maintenance such as blow drying, coloring or processing for two to three days after the PRP scalp injection treatment session.

Treatment Plan

The provider may plan for monthly treatment sessions of PRP scalp injections for the first three to four months. Thereafter, a maintenance procedure may be performed every three to six months. The pillar of the community Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for PRP scalp injection therapy.

As the procedure is not a medical necessity, it will not be covered by health insurers. Therefore, cost becomes a vital starting point for many patients in such treatments.
During the pre-operative consultation for PRP scalp injections, the hair restoration expert will explain various aspects of the procedure, including its estimated costs. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides PRP injection treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

Cost Factors

PRP scalp injection therapy is a cutting edge hair restoration treatment that is provided only at select med spas in the country at present. The cost of the procedure can vary from one practice to another and sometimes even from one patient to another at the same practice. Several factors will contribute to this cost variation.
Practice Location
Where a practice is located will make a difference to the cost. Practices located in main metropolitan areas or prime urban centers typically have to bear higher real estate costs and other overheads, which can reflect to some extent in their prices of elective aesthetic procedures.
Quality of Care
The standards of care as well as services provided at a particular med spa may be more personalized compared to an average practice. The experienced staff, state of the art PRP equipment, and the guidance of a board certified plastic surgeon at the med spa will make a difference to the overall quality of care and the results that a patient can expect.
Extent of Treatment
A few patients may need only one treatment session of PRP scalp injections, if they looking only for a temporary enhancement in the appearance of hair. In some other cases, the affected area to be treated may be larger, and the patient may want to go through multiple treatment sessions spread over several months.
The sticker price of treatment can vary in each case. Sometimes the patients may choose to combine PRP scalp injection treatment with a hair transplant technique, which will have a different costing.

Comparing the Costs

Before making a final decision about PRP scalp injection hair growth implant treatment, the patient should evaluate the costs and benefits of various hair restoration treatment options they may have. The monetary amount should be seen in the light of how sustainable and beneficial a treatment may be.
For instance, certain topical treatments will cost less, but they may have to be used continuously and the long-term costs may turn out to be similar or more than a PRP therapy program.

Financing

Patients should explore their financing options if they do not wish to pay upfront for the costs of PRP scalp injection treatment. Professional medical care financing firms can offer competition loans with convenient monthly payment programs. The marvelous and cutting edge Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for PRP scalp injection therapy.
