What is a chemical peel? A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun. There are three (3) basic types of chemical peels:
1- Superficial or lunchtime peel: Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.
2- Medium peel: Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is applied to penetrate the out and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration. It also can be used to smooth rough skin and treat some precancerous skin growths, i.e. actinic keratosis.
3- Deep peel: Tricholoracetic acid or phenol is applied to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment removes moderate lines, age spots, freckles and shallow scars. Patients will see a dramatic improvement in skin appearance. The procedure is used on the face and only can be performed once.
When is a chemical peel appropriate? Chemical peels are used to treat a number of conditions including:
Acne scars, Aging skin, Crow's feet, Scars, Sun damaged skin, Sagging skin, Wrinkles. What can one expect after having a chemical peel? All peels require some follow-up care:
A)- Superficial peels require one to seven days to heal. Treated skin will initially be red and may scale. Lotion or cream should be applied until the skin heals, followed by daily use of sunscreen. Makeup can usually be worn the next day.
B)- Medium peels require seven to 14 days to heal. Treated skin will initially be red and swollen. Swelling worsens for the first 48 hours. Eyelids may swell shut. Blisters may form and break. Skin can crust and peel off in seven to 14 days. Skin must be soaked daily for a specified period, followed by ointment application. Antiviral medication is taken for 10 to 14 days. Mild lotion or cream may be applied. Avoid all sun exposure until healing is complete. Camouflage makeup may be worn after five to seven days. A follow-up appointment will be necessary to monitor progress.
C)- Deep peels require 14 to 21 days to heal. The treated area will be bandaged. Skin must be soaked four to six times daily, followed by ointment application for the first 14 days. Afterwards a thick moisturizer is applied for the next 14 days. Antiviral medication is taken for 10 to 14 days. Mild lotion or cream may be applied. Avoid all sun exposure for three to six months. Camouflage makeup may be worn after 14 days. Several follow-up appointments will be necessary to monitor progress.
Sun exposure and smoking after a chemical peel must be avoided because they can cause unwanted side effects, including infection and scarring.

What's a Chemical Treatment and Why Do I Need Them? What is Dermabrasion? Dermabrasion is a procedure that uses a wire brush or a diamond wheel with rough edges to remove and level the upper layer of skin. The treated area heals, allowing new skin to grow in its place. It often is used for facial procedures.
What should first be done before considering dermabrasion? Patients should understand that dermabrasion injures the skin and must be prepared with how they will look immediately after treatment and during the healing process. Post-procedure instructions must be carefully followed to avoid infection and ensure proper healing. It's also important to have realistic treatment expectations. Typically a 50 percent improvement in the skin condition is considered a good result. It may take several weeks or months for full results to become apparent.
When is dermabrasion appropriate? Dermabrasion can be used to treat: Superficial acne scars, Age/Brown spots, Crow's feet, Scars, Skin growths, Skin lesions, Sun-damaged skin, and Wrinkles.

Who is not a candidate for dermabrasion? Patients are not good candidates if they have: Used isotretinoin to treat acne within the last six to 12 months, Recently had a facelift or brow-lift, A history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring, An active herpes infection or other skin infection, Skin that is overly sensitive to cold, A skin, blood or immune disorder that could make healing more difficult.
Is dermabrasion painful? Dermabrasion can be uncomfortable, so local anesthetics are used to numb the skin before treatment. A freezing spray may also be used to numb and prepare the treated area. For larger treatments, such as full facials, a general anesthesia may be used. Ice packs may also be used during the procedure. After treatment most patients report little or no pain, though some require pain relievers as well as a corticosteroid for swelling.
What are the potential complications of dermabrasion? Uneven changes in skin color, Darkening of the skin, usually caused by sun exposure in the days and months following surgery, Swelling, Scarring, and Infection.
What can I expect after having had dermabrasion? Patients will be required to follow a post-procedure regimen that includes: Cleansing the skin several times a day to avoid infection and remove crusting, Changing the ointment or dressing on the wound to keep the area moist and promote healing, Avoiding sun exposure and, after healing, using a daily sunscreen, Possibly taking an antiviral drug to prevent infection, Several follow-up visits to monitor your skin's healing and to identify and treat early signs of infection or other complications.
What is a Facial? People get facials for different reasons: Some people want those horrible blackheads out! Others start taking care of their skin in their 20's to preserve a youthful look. Older people want some help with anti-again regimens. And then there are the people who just want to relax and be pampered. These are all fine reasons to get facials. However, often the facial itself is a bit mysterious. What does the steam do? Why do they keep putting creams on and taking them off? Why get facials regularly? A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of ones skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help skin look younger. One will also receive advice on the best way to take care of the skin. A facial works best when it is part of an on-going program of skin care.

The Basic Steps of a Facial:
1- Consultation. A facial should begin with a consultation. One might fill out a form with questions about their skin concerns, diet, how much water one drinks, which drugs and supplements one takes, and products one is currently using. 'Retin-A' and other drugs can affects the skin and what kind of treatments the esthetician recommends.
2- Preparations. Usually the esthetician offers a wrap that goes around the body and underneath the arms, then closes with velcro. Some people remove all their clothes before putting on the wrap, some leave their pants on, and some even leave their bra on and put the straps underneath their arms. And at some spas, clients are invited to take off some or all of your clothes and get between the sheets. Don't worry too much -- the esthetician will let the client know the protocol where oen is.
3- Cleansing. Usually the esthetician starts by wrapping the hair with a towel or headband to keep product off of it. The first step is thorough cleansing, using cotton pads, esthetician wipes or sponges. Most professional facials do a double-cleanse.
4- Skin Analysis and Cleansing. Depending on whether one has make-up on, the esthetician might look at the skin under a bright lamp first, or covers the eyes and looks at the skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp. She is determining the basic skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive or normal) and skin conditions (acne, blackheads, whiteheads, aging, sun-damage, dehydration, etc.) The esthetician then chooses the appropriate products and treatments, and consults with ythe client about what he or she sees and recommends.
5- Steam. Most facials use a machine that directs a thin vapor of warm steam to the face. This is relaxing and helps softens up any blackheads and whiteheads to be extracted. If the client has very sensitive skin, the esthetician may not use steam.
6- Exfoliation using a mechanical or 'chemical exfoliant.' Mechanical exfoliant's have a gritty texture that rubs away the surface dead skin cells. This type of exfoliation usually happens during the steam. Chemical exfoliation uses enzymes and acids to loosen the bond between skin cells. A gentle enzyme treatment can be done during the steam. Stronger chemical peels, which vary in intensity, can be a stand-alone treatment or part of the facial.
7- Extractions. This is the removal of blackheads or whiteheads if one wants it and need it. People have different pain tolerance for extractions. They can be uncomfortable, especially on thin or ruddy skin. Extractions can cause broken capillaries and discoloration if done improperly. Watch a video of extractions being performed.
8- Facial massage using classic strokes like effleurage to both relax the client and stimulate their skin and facial muscles.
9- Facial mask targeted to the clients skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive, mature) and condition.
10- Final application of toner, serums, moisturizer and sunscreen if it's daytime.
Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different Human hair growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area called bikini waxing, legs, arms, back, abdomen, knuckles and feet.
1- Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly; the strip adheres to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin. This removes both the wax along with the hair.
2- Strip-less wax (as opposed to strip wax), also referred to as hard wax, is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have Sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful.

There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by Chemical depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the hair root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. There are drawbacks of waxing: Waxing can be painful when the strip is removed from the skin. Although the pain is not long-lasting, it can be intense, particularly in sensitive areas. Another drawback to waxing is the expense: waxing should be performed by
What exactly is Brow Sculpting? "Brow sculpting is the term given to a semi-permanent, textured eyebrow gel/skin paint that is applied to the skin to define and fill in eyebrows," explains Urla Duncan, President of Winks Eyelash Boutique in Toronto. "It's a great alternative to filling in your brows daily."
If the brow bone is barren and a good portion of the morning is dedicated to create or filling in the brows, or one may have considered permanent makeup, then one may be in luck. Brow sculpting is now a thing. Threading salons across the US are increasingly beginning to invest in the newest brow craze that creates and sculpts brows using a 3D sculpting gel that mimics the appearance of hair. Each brow takes thirty minutes and the results are waterproof, smudge-proof—life-proof—brows that won't require any retouching until the next appointment three weeks later.

What's the procedure like? The sculpting procedure begins with an analysis of the brows to determine the best shape for the eye. After trimming and tweezing, the brows are filled in with a powder as a means to outline the desired shape. Duncan tells us that sculpting gel is "custom mixed to ensure the perfect shade." Using a fine applicator, the gel is then applied directly to skin in hair like strokes, giving off a 3D effect. "They last for weeks and fade gradually. This service is done to fill in gaps and give the illusion of hair where there isn't any," Duncan says. "It is a great way to add density and definition for beautiful brows without the daily fuss."
Want to intensify 'the sculpt?' Two words: eyebrow extensions. For that 4D look with texture, eyebrow extensions can be added on to the sculpting treatment. Conclusion: if one wants a darker, more drastic brow, go for the brow tinting. If one wants a more natural, textured brow, go for the gel sculpting.
Eyebrow trends come and go, from thin and sharp to bold and bushy à la Cara Delevingne and basically every other model who's been hot in the past few years. But the latest trend is micro-blading, a new tattoo technique that fills brows out or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs.
Micro-blading is a way of semi-permanent make-up, where through manual process of inserting pigment into the upper layers of skin we create the desired fullness and shape of the eyebrows. The effects last up to 12 months after which the pigment fades leaving the skin and your natural brows exactly as they were. Result looks natural and flawless as hair effect is recreated on the skin.
Nothing tells the story of ones face more than the eyebrows do. Eyebrows are the window to the soul. If one was born with bad eyebrows, or if they are still suffering from the aftermath of a waxing incident in 2004, then one probably find eyebrows to be a 'point of stress' for them. One must wake up every morning and draw them on with an eyebrow pencil, or fill them in with a pomade or powder. And if one does neither of those things and just wakes up, says "crap" and walks out the door, then they are a brave, brave person. It's called micro-blading.
When one has tried every pencil, powder, pigment, gel, stencil, ancient tribal chant, prayer, etc. and brows still are weak, it's time to look at a more permanent solution to thin or bad brows. Micro-blading is a semi-permanent brow tattoo procedure thatis life changing. Don't let the concept of a tattoo on the face scare. Unlike a regular tattoo, micro-blading is a form of tattooing where a trained artist uses a handheld tool instead of a machine. They draw hair-like strokes to mimic what the brows would look like if they were fuller. The result, if done right, looks natural and will be the only tattoo to never regret getting.

Micro-blading is done with a hand-held tool — it "looks like an X-ACTO knife made out of needles," — that puts pigment into the skin, but doesn't go as deep as a normal tattoo would. It's also semi-permanent. The client's micro-bladed brows should last between one and three years; 18 months is typical for most of people. The procedure differs depending where ones go's. As always, when it comes to any sort of elective procedure on the face, vet the micro-blading expert. An experienced and legit technician should have previous photos of his/her work available for one to look at.
The cool thing about micro-blading that one can learn from Taryn Korinne is that one can have zero brows, blonde ultra-faint brows, have lost brows due to alopecia, or just need a little help filling the arches in — either way, she's got it covered and will create a legit appearance of naturally full brows. She even creates a custom color that matches the natural brow color and uses several shades, so they look multidimensional and natural!
Hi, this is Leigh, owner of Amara. I would love to take you through the journey of my story. I have always had a passion for helping, serving and making people feel beautiful. I attended Esthetics school and graduated in January of 2000. I quickly realized that there weren't many options for pursuing my passions in the small town that I lived in. I was fortunate to get hired at a small place in Orem, Utah. I worked day in and day out to build my clientele and build relationships with everyone I came in contact with because I just love people. I was fortunate enough to work closely with our owners and managed the salon for close to five years. I am forever grateful for the opportunities, challenges, and mistakes that I was allowed to make and learn from in the beginning of my career.
In 2005, my new husband Tyler and I bought a small home and turned the basement into "Amara Day Spa." In the beginning, it was just me and my amazing sister Tessa, who was apprenticing under me. I hoped and prayed that my guests would come and see me at our new humble location. I was so proud that from the minute we opened, people came.
I've always known in my heart that it doesn't matter where you are located, if you have expensive equipment, or even the latest and greatest treatment. What matters is that the guest is "WOW-ed" each time they come and that they feel better about themselves when they leave. I believe that is why we continued to grow, so much so that in 2007 we built a home in Lindon, Utah, and dedicated the entire basement to Amara. We did spa services, massages, and injectables and soon grew out of that location.
My husband and I took a leap of faith in 2009 and bought a 3,000 square foot location in Orem. We invested hundreds of thousands of dollars of our own money, and I am forever grateful for a husband that has always supported my dreams and has been by my side every step of the way. We expanded services and hired 30 staff members to open with and thankfully they have worked with us through thick and thin. In 2012, we needed to expand again. We were able to purchase another 3,000 square feet right next to us and began building again. We did all of this without shutting down for one day. In 2016, we will open our second location in Lehi, Utah.
My goal is to continue to mentor others, help them succeed in the game of life, and create their own happiness in all they do. -Leigh Bennett, Owner
