I'm allergic to mascara, what can I do? With eyelash extensions, mascara is no longer needed! Red Lotus in Portland, Oregon talks about eyelash extensions.Read Now
Mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara. In fact, one of the many benefits of eyelash extensions is that you do not need to use mascara. If you must apply mascara, however, only use water-based mascara.
DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA as they can dissolve the bonding agent used and they can shorten the life of your eyelash extensions. Use care when washing off the water-based mascara and only use a water based eye makeup remover.

If you’ve never tried lash extensions before, you should probably experience this beauty treatment at least once in your life. Some beauty professionals are even declaring eyelash extensions to be “the new face lift for women over 50.”
The entire process takes about an hour (most people use it as an opportunity to have a quick nap), during which individual eyelash extensions are glued to the base of your natural lashes with an adhesive. When cared for properly, the extensions can last anywhere from two to six weeks and fall off gently, or as your natural lashes shed.
For women over 50, the natural eyelash growth cycle slows down and lashes become scarce. Filling in your lashes with extensions is an easy and effective way to achieve a fuller, more youthful look – and it can be an incredibly relaxing experience. Some places even throw in a complimentary hand and foot massage during the treatment.
If you’re curious about eyelash extensions and considering them for yourself, here are some of the pros and cons.
Pro: Your eyes instantly look younger.Full, flirty lashes work wonders for giving your face a lifted and youthful appearance. They also distract from the look of crow’s feet and fine lines.
Con: Upkeep can be pricey.For a full set of eyelash extensions, you can expect to pay somewhere in the ballpark of $150. If you’re planning on regular upkeep, it’s recommended to have your lashes refilled every two weeks to maintain a full look, and these refills can cost around $90 per treatment.
Pro: Eyelash extensions look gorgeously natural.False lashes are always a great way to add some glam to your makeup, but extensions are much more natural-looking.Con: They can be high maintenance.It’s crucial not to get your lash extensions wet for 24-48 hours after application. To prolong their lifespan, it’s also important to avoid oil-based eyeliner, mascara, and you have to be careful when washing your face. This can especially be a bit of a nuisance in the shower.Pro: Your daily makeup routine will be super easy.One of the main reasons why people are obsessed with lash extensions is because it cuts down on the need for actual makeup. When you wake up, your eyes will already look perfect. Add some concealer, blush and lip gloss, and you’re ready to go!Con: Eye creams reduce staying power.Oil-based or extra-rich eye creams can reduce the staying power of your lash extensions. Of course, discontinuing the use of anti-wrinkle creams (or keeping the delicate eye area moisturized) isn’t a good idea. So for women over 50, lash extensions may have a shorter lifespan.THE VERDICT:Eyelash extensions are a fantastic way for women over 50 to look younger – and not having to worry about wearing tons of eye makeup is worth the investment alone. But unless you can afford to refill them every two weeks, it’s best to save lash extensions for special occasions such as weddings, or when you’re going on a vacation.

What types of Chemical Peel treatment should I have? Red Lotus in Beaverton, Oregon talks about chemical peels.Read Now
All Rhonda Allison treatment procedures are considered superficial; they do not penetrate beyond the epidermis or papillary dermis. They are not to be confused with medical or physician-strength peels that affect the reticular dermis.
This refers to a treatment that does not usually cause immediate exfoliation and only removes the outer layer of skin or the stratum corneum. As treatments are repeated, the skin will experience a mild sloughing.
These peels affect the intra-epidermal layer, and exfoliation occurs within two to three days after application. The skin goes through very little down time. Peeling consists of light flaking similar to a sunburn peel.
These peels affect the deepest intra-epidermal layers. The skin becomes brown and crusty then undergoes considerable peeling, which occurs three to four days after application. The skin peels in large segments as opposed to flaking. The entire process takes about seven to ten days.

A chemical peel is a technique which involves the application of a variety of chemical solutions to remove the damaged outer layers of dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. It is extremely beneficial for many skin conditions such as hyper-pigmentation, rosacea, acne, sun damage, and photo aging.
By removing the build-up of dead skin cells and stimulating the regenerative process, you will notice marked improvements in the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, texture and tone of the skin, hydration, reduced pore size, clearing of blemishes and more balanced oil production and an overall healthier skin appearance.

As clinicians, we want to provide the best possible treatments for our patients’ skin. Once we have chosen the best treatment or treatments, the next step is to plan how frequently the patient must receive those treatments in order to obtain their desired results. PCA SKIN’s philosophy is to follow a progressive, rather than aggressive, approach; meaning including the least amount of inflammation to the skin in order to achieve those results.
PCA SKIN recommends basing frequency of treatment on the condition rather than the chosen formulation. For the best results, follow these guidelines:
Discoloration can be treated every three weeks. If you treat uneven skin tone more often, you run the risk of causing too much inflammation; conversely if you treat uneven skin tone not often enough, you are allowing pigment to be deposited into the keratinocytes. By treating uneven skin tone every three weeks, you are suppressing the melanocyte from producing more melanin, as well as simultaneously reducing the darker appearance of the previously pigmented cells as they rise to the surface of the skin, minimizing the appearance of the discoloration as you are treating it.
Acne (all types) can be treated every two weeks. Treating acne every week, could create too much inflammation, while waiting longer between treatments allows the propionibacterium (P. acnes) more time to proliferate. By treating acneic skin types every two weeks, you are staying ahead of the bacteria production while minimizing the appearance of future breakouts and encouraging the healing process.
Sensitive skin and rosacea can be treated every four weeks. Because the skin is already irritated in most sensitive skin situations, treating it more frequently than every four weeks will cause too much irritation.
Aging skin can be treated every three weeks. Aging skin types are usually also combating uneven skin tone. Treating the aging patient every three weeks not only manages the discoloration issues, but also keeps the skin hydrated and infused with firming and plumping ingredients.
Ultimately, the goal is to have our patients come in on a once-a-month basis for skin health maintenance. Also, we must stress to each of our patients the importance of daily care in conjunction with regular in-office treatments.
