HydraFacial vs. Hydrodermabrasion: Whats the Difference?

FullSizeRender.jpg


Here at The Style & Beauty Bar we are excited to announce our newest treatment , The Hydrofacial has quickly become one of our most requested and popular services.  This service is excellent because it is soothing, moisturizing, non-invasive  and safe for most skin types.

But the question we’re  asked the most is: What is the difference between Hydrafacial and Hydrodermabrasion/ Hydrofacial?

So here’s the breakdown:

HydraFacial is a skin resurfacing treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin. With its patented Vortex tip, the device simultaneously removes dead skin cells and other impurities from the skin, while infusing the cells with super serums that cleanse and moisturize.

while,

Hydrodermabrasion  is a term used simultaneously for both Hydrafacial and Hydrofacial and can be defined as a dermatological procedure which combines simultaneous dermal infusion of medicinal products with crystal-free exfoliation.

Our popular service The Hydrofacial uses the natural healing powers of oxygen and water to cleanse and exfoliate the skin without the use of hard crystals or abrasive textured wands. Thus promoting  deeply hydrated and healthier looking skin. This exfoliation technology combines ultra-hydrating fluids and super serums to permeate deep into your skin, allowing cells to drink the nourishing active ingredients they  need for fresh and healthy regeneration. 

So whats the difference? Hydrafacial is a trademarked brand name of a specific patented hydrodermabrasion technology and machine whereas Hydrodermabrasion is the actual process. Here at The Style & Beauty Bar we perform our Hydrofacials using a hydrodermabrasion machine that is FDA registered and superb in quality. We also use the purest serums on the market which are all made in the USA. Our focus is on providing the best service and results for our clients - irregardless of brand. 

Furthermore we have many clients who have stated they feel virtually no difference in the actual process or results regardless of the brand name of machine used.

However, we totally understand with so many treatment options available, it can be a confusing task to figure out exactly which treatment is right so here at The Style & Beauty Bar our mission is  to offer the best affordable and effective options for your specific skincare needs.


Staying Hydrated

FullSizeRender.jpg

Someone once said if you Stay #hydrated then you won’t have anytime for negativity cause you’ll be running to the bathroom to pee every 5 mins. 😩😂 But on a serious note, I get this question all the time.. If I drink more water will it help to clear my skin? And the answer is Yes it will.

But how much water is enough?


My personal goal has been a gallon a day (when I actually get it down lol)

So here’s what I do:

1- I fill four (32 ounce) large opening water bottles. I put them in the fridge and drink 2 before noon and 2 before bed.


SN: I infuse water with fruit - whatever fruit you prefer. For me fruit is the key to helping me actually drink enough.

I’m always looking for new ideas on how to improve water intake. Drop a comment below and tell me what tricks you use to make your daily water quota. .

Why Makeup Wipes are not your friend...

IMG_9575.PNG

FYI: It’s time to breakup with your wipes...That is if wipes are ALL you’re using to cleanse. 💯

Now don’t get me wrong, this post isn’t to bash wipes because they are great for the gym or on the go.


But, Let’s just put it this way...the difference between using only makeup wipes versus using a cleanser is huge!


Why you ask? We will break it down for you:


1. Makeup wipes don't actually clean your skin. Some contain carcinogens like formaldehyde not to mention they can contain #comedogenic ingredients which lead to clogged pores and major frowns if you are acne prone☹️ 2. And since you aren’t actually washing off the residue from these ingredients you  increase your risk of developing inflammation on your skin.


3. The act of “scrubbing” your face with makeup wipes, can also leave you with irritated skin that over time, can promote hyperpigmentation or even early wrinkling.


So here’s what you can do:

1.Throw your makeup wipes away. (Let em go girl, let em go! 😩💁🏽‍♀️ 2.Use Micellar water with an esthetic wipe and gently remove makeup.( oil free for my eyelash extensions wearers)

3.Next use a cleanser thats formulated to treat your own individual skin conditions.


So, Let’s just call this a friendly reminder to TOSS those wipes..😉 trust me your skin will not only look but FEEL cleaner.

What questions do you have about skincare cleansers or skincare routines? I’d love to hear!

We love our space and we know you will too!

We LOVE our space! But what most people don’t know is two years ago when I was creating The Style & Beauty Bar I had absolutely no budget- no renovation team, no fancy interior designer, just my Husband, his carpentry skills and a dream.To say it has been a labor of love is an understatement ❤️ I’ve changed the concept several times.. in the past two years I have painted and re-painted,changed decor, and to tell the truth I’m not close to finished. LOL 😂

I just knew I wanted my space to be inviting for ALL women, all ethnicities, welcoming and warm with great vibes while offering the best in professional beauty treatments. It is with same dedication that we service our clients everyday.And slowly but surely I think I’ve achieved that goal .❤️ Come redefine your beauty with us today ❤️ link in bio to book!

Meet Kay: Owner of The Style & Beauty Bar

IMG_9406.JPG

Hey! I don’t think I’ve ever officially introduced myself. My name is Kay, and I’m the owner of The Style & Beauty Bar.

Normally I’m super private but one of my #goals for 2019 is to open up more and let my clients and followers get to know a little more about me.

I’m a licensed #esthetician and I’ve owned The Style & Beauty Bar for two years. I’m a wife and mother to a two year old and two month old (both girls)💗 I’ve always loved all things Style & Beauty and I also love people! So what better then meeting new amazing people everyday and making them look and feel beautiful! Everyday I’m inspired by amazing women and also empowered by their strength and resilience.

I love my Styletresses (as I affectionately call my clients) & really enjoy seeing the confidence transformations can give. I also train, educate and mentor women to become entrepreneurs.


I decided to create The Style & Beauty Bar because I saw a void. I wanted to offer results driven skincare and quality beauty services to the everyday woman in ONE  location with an amazing atmosphere and vibe. A place where women from ALL walks of life could enjoy much needed #selfcare .


All and all, I’m super passionate about helping women & I’ve built my business on #redefining the idea of beauty and the fact that its not one size fits all.


I know I was always meant to do this and with every day I’m more thankful than ever that this isn’t just my job but my true passion! So keep pushing towards your goals... DREAM big and if you don’t like your life, change it!✨✨

Redefining Beauty

IMG_9398.PNG

Happy Wednesday Loves!

You would be amazed at how many women I meet who are so unaware of just how beautiful they truly are. Completely oblivious! I for one believe society puts incredibly unrealistic standards on women and we try (and fail) to live up to them everyday.


I’ve struggled my whole life to love my imperfections- gap teeth, and uneven skin and even became a Esthetician to help “fix” my flaws. But some time ago I realized it’s completely deeper than the surface. I had to start within.


So I decided to redefine beauty with The Style & Beauty Bar to include strength of character, resilience, and integrity. 


Now when I look in the mirror I don’t see those imperfections - I see beauty in my uniqueness, perseverance and hard work. Here’s to enjoying life, smiling wider, laughing harder, and loving yourself first before anything else.
