The eyes have it thanks to RevitaLash

 

The number one goal of any Med Spa is to find the best modality to accomplish a clients goal. So what is the number one asset that most women try to enhance?

No, not those. Think a little higher up.

There you go, Her eyes!

For me it was Audrey Hepburn! Those eyes and brows were captivating. If a woman’s eyes are the windows to her soul then the eyelashes and brows are the frames. Eye contact is the most communicative non-verbal cue we have. So much that it sometimes conveys more about our thoughts and feelings than our words. Ever stare lovingly into your sweetheart’s eyes? Or noticed a baby ogling you on the city bus? The shape of your eyes tells a biological story as well. Large eyes in a female suggest that she has low androgen (male hormones and high estrogen, which implies youth and fertility. Luckily, it’s also an effect that can easily be enhanced with clever makeup tricks.

Enter Dr. Brienkenhoff and RevitaLash.

 

RevitaLash was founded in 2006 by Dr. Brienkenhoff. Here is how he describes the reason he created RevitaLash. “In 2006 this company began with just one product, a unique eyelash conditioner created for one special lady. RevitaLash Cosmetics would not have come into being without my loving wife, Gayle, and my desire to help her feel beautiful during her courageous fight against breast cancer. From our original product, inspired by love, we have developed an entire collection that revitalizes the natural beauty and inner spirit of all women.”

10 years later RevitaLash Cosmetics is now available in over 50 countries.

The lash products use Curl Effect® which helps naturally lift and curl the eyelashes. And the Revitalash product will not change or effect your eye color. A proprietary blend of scientifically-advanced technology and natural botanicals join in concert to protect against breakage and brittleness. This improves flexibility, moisture, and shine for more dramatic-looking eyelashes. Daily use provides immediate conditioning benefits, leading to healthier-looking, more luxurious lashes.

RevitaLash is a huge supporter of cancer research and continues to try and improve the lives of those affected by this devastating disease.

Thank you Dr. Brienkenhoff for your inspiration!

WHO IS CARRIE BRADSHAW

Today I am going to reintroduce you to our staff. Since she was our first employee we will start with our lead Aesthetician Carrie Bradshaw.

Who is Carrie Bradshaw?

 Well isn’t that a loaded question!

 

NO NOT THIS ONE

No, not this one.

 

Yes, this one

I can tell you she is more than just a fictional TV and movie character (Sex In The City). Our Carrie Bradshaw is a very passionate skincare specialist that has personally struggled with skincare issues for as long as she can remember. She tried it all, and I do mean all, from lemons on her face (it burns the bacteria. Yeah right) to Accutane (That was after her high school crush told her he would never take her to Prom because she looked like “I stuck my face in an ant bed”… Ouch!)

After years of facials, microderm treatments, chemical peels, & plastic surgeon visits her wonderful husband, Mr. Big, made a joke about learning this “stuff” on her own so she could save him some money. Well, let’s fast forward. I’m not sure about the saving money part, but the learning of this “stuff” has become part of her every day life.  Now she has made the skincare industry her career and her mission is to help as many people that are willing to listen, about their skin.

In talking to Carrie for this article she said, “This giant leap of faith has paid off and being a licensed aesthetician has become better than any dream I could have dreamt. My heart is full and I hope that comes through with all of my services I provide for my clients.” Trust me when I say it does!

Carrie was the first person that we hired last year, 5 months before we opened. We knew the moment we spoke to her that we needed her on our team of professionals. She is a graduate of the Artistic Nail and Beauty Academy in Lakeland, Florida and has worked in several Polk County spas. She was craving the opportunity to expand her skill level into the medical side of aesthetics, (deeper peels, microneedling, etc) so it was a perfect match for both of us. She is currently working on some CEU’s so that she may expand her list of services to include more medical services.

Carrie maintains a Facebook page, Pretty in the City, Ask Carrie Bradshaw, where she helps her followers with their skincare needs. She is constantly researching, attending conferences and training with our vendors so she can stay at the top of her chosen field. Her zest to improve her craft and overall passion for skincare is contagious. Honest, easygoing, and incredibly skilled, she makes you feel refreshed, relaxed and informed.

Her list of services includes:

Facials

Waxing

make-up

Dermaplaning

microdermabrasion

Norvell spray tanning.

Eyelash tinting and extensions

chemical peels including medium and deep medical grade

Carrie lives in Lakeland with her husband and 3 daughters.

See you next week!
