Super Volume lash extensions with our new lash technique - Volume Lashes - clients are now able to choose the volume and thickness they would like for their lashes at Red Lotus Lash Salon in Portland, Or.Read Now
What Are Volume Lashes?
With traditional lash extensions, we could only safely attach one eyelash extension to each of your single natural lashes. We could only apply lashes based on the number of natural lashes you have. This can be disappointing if you have only a few natural lashes yet desire a thicker look.
Our new 2D - 6D Volume sets now give even natural-lash-challenged clients the option for volume they have never had before! Opting more for volume rather then length.
"Volume Lashes" is a revolutionary lashing technique where 2 to 6 super fine extensions are applied to one single natural eyelash SAFELY creating a look so soft and full it seems to be enhanced with Photoshop!
Whatever your lash look, volume lashes are suitable for everyday wear and a real treat on special occasions such as weddings.
We have creative spa ideas for the girl who has everything.

Master Aesthetician Patricia at Red Lotus Facial and Skin Salon in Beaverton, Oregon talks about how Raw Coconut Oil is one of the best kept beauty secrets around.Read Now
Dry skin, eczema, dry hair, weight loss, all the answers in a jar of raw coconut oil?
Coconut oil has many different uses. Using it instead of olive oil or vegetable oil in cooking is a great alternative but it can be used in your beauty routine as well.
Coconut oil is sold in jars at about $10 a jar. We recommend getting virgin coconut oil which is easily found at Trader Joes at half that price. Some things that you can cook with coconut oil are eggs, cookies, salad dressings, smoothies, curry, oatmeal and even popcorn. Coconut oil has a slight buttery taste but without all the trans fat.
Now besides cooking what else can you use it for?
Mouthwash ~ Using coconut oil instead of mouthwash is believed to do a better job of getting rid of plaque and other bacteria in our mouths, and boosting the immune system overall. Simply use like you would a regular mouthwash. Swish for a few minutes and spit.
Moisturizing ~ The oil strengthens and removes excessive dead cells which make the skin dry and rough. Coconut oil has no chemicals in it making a better option then some lotions you get at the drugstore.
Hair Conditioner ~ Coconut oil can help grow hair long, strong and healthy. It also keeps the hair shiny.
Treat Eczema ~ Eczema can be treated with coconut oil because it is very moisturizing, easily soaks into the skin and contains no ingredients that can irritate the skin.
Cuticle Oil ~ Have a problem with hangnails? Coconut oil may be the solution. Rub some into your cuticles and let it work it's magic. Also use it for dry hands and feet.

Ways to Keep Your Lash Extensions on Longer and look better, from Red Lotus Lash Salon in Portland, Oregon.Read Now
1. Sleep on your back
This might sound like a crazy request (unless you already sleep on your back), but it's really important directly following your application, since the glue takes a while to dry fully and you'll otherwise get weird kinks. After a night or two, resume your normal sleeping position. Special trick sleep with eye mask to keep from crunching them.
2. Give your lashes a little TLC (Tender Lash Care)
When removing your eye makeup (liner, shadow, etc.), gently go over the area with a gentle makeup remover that contains no oil instead of placing cotton pads or puffs over your lids—not only could you eventually weaken the extensions and mess them up, the cotton fibers get stuck on lashes. (Not cute). Makeup remover wipes can also snag the lashes which can pull them out prematurely and leave fibers. I always make my own cleanser with baby shampoo, baking soda and a foam pump bottle with water. Put lots of bubbles on the lashes, gentle pressing the bubbles into the lashes with the middle finger and thumb. Careful not to tangle them just squeeze soap in with fingers to top and bottom of lashes. Rinse by cupping water up to eye, than pat dry with towel and gently comb down onto the cheek to organize the lashes a bit, than let air dry.
3. No oil
Oil weakens the glue bond on your lash extensions causing them to clump and stick together and can make them fall off sooner.
4. Comb them out
To prevent any criss-crossing or wonky-looking lashes, use a spoolie or mascara wand. Close one eye, place the spoolie on top of your lashes, then roll the brush over lashes to keep them defined. However, combing over and over again can pull out the lashes.
5. Resist playing with them
Your eyelashes shed naturally, so when you have extensions, this will help push them off. If an extension looks out of place, avoid playing with it or twisting or pulling it off—you'll risk losing your natural lashes. Let them come out on their own, and use a spoolie to brush them back into place in the meantime.

Why do I need to cleanse my face before bed? Master Aethetician Patricia at Red Lotus Skin Peel & Lash Salon in Portland, talks about why cleansing before bed is important to keeping you younger longer.Read Now
Cleansing is a huge part of every skincare routine and there are good reasons behind it.
~Research shows cleansing before bed is essential to looking younger, longer.
Every day your skin is aging. And the very simple process of washing your face before bed is an excellent way to mitigate the external factors associated with aging and to stimulate the internal processes that fight aging.
Research has shown that certain physiological changes in the skin do occur overnight. Like many of our organs, our skin can tell night from day. Biological processes vary over 24 hours as a result of time-sensitive “clocks” within our cells, said Dr. David R. Weaver, a neurobiology professor at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Some evidence exists linking circadian clocks to cell cycle (cells dividing to replenish dead ones) and DNA repair, the natural process by which a cell regularly detoxifies itself. (Impact Journals: Aging.)
Overnight, the skin needs oxygen to repair itself. And sleeping with your makeup on deprives it of this vital nutrient. Even if you do not wear makeup you want to cleanse to remove pollutants, bacteria and unwanted debris off of our face.
~Nighttime cleansing is essential for letting anti-aging ingredients work.
Nocturnal blood flow in the skin is higher. And when blood flow is increased so is absorption and penetration of ingredients. So again, if you aren't washing you can't apply actives that will help fight aging (or acne or whatever your skin condition might be).
Thus, If you don't wash your face before bed it’s a missed opportunity to do something great for your skin and to wake up with smoother, softer, clearer skin.
~Forgoing nighttime cleansing regularly will give you larger pores.
First, consider that excess sebum (oil), dead skin cells, and pollution are sitting on your face. Not to mention makeup (and just because you don't wear foundation is no excuse). A cleanser will emulsify all of these and remove them from the surface of your skin. According to Dr. Dennis Gross, M.D., when makeup is left on it can seep deep down, clogging pores. He also says that once your collagen levels start to decline (due to aging), the pores do not snap back as easily once they become enlarged. And, leaving makeup on can lead to inflammation that can generate free radicals and collagen breakdown.
~Nighttime cleansing prevents skin dehydration.
Skin temperature rises overnight which leads to trans-epidermal water loss (evaporation).
This in part causes the skin to lose a significant portion of water at night. According to an article, Nocturnal Itch, by the Departments of Dermatology and Neurobiology & Anatomy at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, transepidermal water loss (TEWL) is significantly increased during the night, which is why our skin can sometimes feel more itchy at night. Thus, if you don't wash your face, you can't apply a moisturizer which will help hydrate your skin while you sleep.
Daytime cleansing prevents excess oil production.
I know what you’re thinking: So why then do I have to wash it again in the morning; I went to bed with it clean? As we just learned, overnight your skin recovers. Which means in the morning you have more dead skin cells to slough off. And more excess sebum to emulsify. These can’t be rinsed away with mere water. Same with dead skin cells and excess sebum…you need to dislodge them & then rinse them away. Water alone removes only about 65% of oil and debris from the surface of the skin.

How to really deep clean your skin and why is deep cleansing important in the facial room? Master Aesthetician Patricia from Red Lotus Skin Peel and Lash Salon in Beaverton, talks about how to deep clean skin.Read Now
Every time you receive a facial deep cleansing, which can include a gentle brushing, it helps to get down deep into the pores removing traces of makeup, dirt, and oil. However, brush cleaning is not for every skin type, and some skin types may notice too much irritation with brushing and are best with lots of massaging during the cleansing step really working up a lather and allowing a minute before washing it off.
Deep cleansing is important in the facial room because we want the products we are putting onto the skin to really penetrate and be most effective. Cleansing the skin is one of the most important steps because it removes anything that can block another product from being effective to it's full strength. Sometime a double cleansing step is needed with either a milky cleanser and a sudsy cleanser after or even 2 sudsy cleanses. Then, a toning step that may have acids in it, or just hydrating vitamins and plant extracts. Next step is some type of exfoliation that can be as gentle as a gommage' that manually exfoliates while massaging skin with plant extracts that help the skin loosen and roll off. Lite acids, enzymes or microdermabrasion are all forms of more deeply cleansing the skin of debris so the skin will be prepared to accept the treatment to than improve the skin conditions you may have.

New Eye Care Products from PCA Skin
The eye area is a common concern among most patients, and they will be looking to you for advice regarding the best ways to fight the visible signs of aging. There are so many products on the market that claim to “erase” wrinkles instantly, which is simply not achievable. An aged eye area can make a person look much older than they truly are, making it an area many are looking to correct.
As with many of the conditions skin care clinicians treat, correcting the common visible signs of aging in the eye area requires addressing multiple conditions at once. The typical complaints include:wrinklinglaxitydark circles, puffiness, sagging upper eyelids. Most products currently available on the market address only one or two of these concerns, while our new Ideal Complex: Revitalizing Eye Gel and Ideal Complex: Restorative Eye Cream takes a multifaceted approach never seen in eye products before. The two formulas allow for every patient’s preference to be fulfilled. The gel is light and quick-absorbing, while the cream is rich and provides the addition of optical diffusers to deliver instant brightness. Regardless of which product you choose, both will exceed expectations and deliver excellent, visible results.
