  • Is laser removal with Cutera HR really worth it?

    Due to Cutera HR's superior technology, exceptional results are achievable on all hair types - fine or coarse. Commonly requested areas include underarms, legs, bikini area, chest, and back.

    Although clients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed side effect is slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These side effects typically fade after a few hours.

  • Does it work on all hair types?

    During your consultation, we' will assess your hair type and color to determine if laser hair removal is right for you. Sometimes, the lasers do not pick up on gray, light blonde, and/or some shades of red.

Xtreme Lashes

    Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions will last indefinitely with routine re-lashing every 2 or 3 weeks. The natural eyelash grows in, matures and sheds on a natural cycle, typically every two to three months. The lash extension will shed with the natural eyelash. Relashing addresses this natural shedding to maintain a full beautiful set of lashes. Prior to the application, your Lash Extension Stylist will conduct a thorough consultation to design a set of customized lashes suited specifically for your eyes.

  • Will I Receive Mink Lashes?

    When looking for lash extensions nearby, make sure to find out what types of materials are being used by your Lash Stylist. Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions are faux mink lashes, meaning that they are made from synthetic fibers that look and feel like a natural lash. Real mink lashes come with several disadvantages. For one, some people have an allergy to real mink. Also, mink lashes require frequent curling after application because they do not hold the curl. Due to these disadvantages and others, Xtreme Lashes chooses to provide faux mink lashes.
