Similar to laser and light therapies, radio frequency (RF) uses energy to tighten and firm the skin. Where the treatments differ, however, is that RF uses electrical impulses rather than light to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Along with this, radio frequency treatments are able to penetrate deeper into the skin treating the elastin and collagen within whereas lasers and light therapy focus more on the surface of the skin.

So many of our guests suggest we serve champagne during treatments like many other facial locations. Ultimately, we do not serve alcohol because it actually exacerbates many skin conditions like eczema, acne, and dryness. We wanted to break it down a bit further for you, however, so here are the four main ways alcohol can worsen skin conditions.
The skin lipid barrier is the topmost layer of the skin that binds cells together, prevents water loss, and protects against environmental pollutants. A weakened skin lipid barrier can lead to dryness, flakiness, and other symptoms. Several factors can damage the lipid barrier, such as the use of harsh products, over-exfoliation, over-washing, and hot water. To protect the lipid barrier, people should clean up their personal care products, avoid harsh exfoliating, over-washing, and use lukewarm water. Repairing the skin lipid barrier can be achieved through the use of antioxidant-rich products and mineral-based sun protection.

Statistics show that 95% of people don’t get enough fiber (men 38g/day, women 25g/day).

Here is the thing...not all collagen is created equal. Especially when we are comparing animal collagen to human collagen. Fun fact: they aren’t the same thing. When we consume “collagen” that is sourced from animal products our digestive system needs to work extra hard to break these down into smaller amino acids which our body can then use to produce its own human collagen.

Facial Lounge announced the Sept. 1, 2022 opening of their second location at the Back Bay in Costa Mesa, California. The Facial Lounge is known for their Custom Signature Vegan Facial that has helped thousands of clients with a personalized, holistic approach to a clear complexion. The lounge's facials are designed for all skin types, ages, ethnicities and genders.
OC’s newest hot spot, Facial Lounge a prominent business in Corona Del Mar, voted #1 by the LA Times has opened it’s second location in Costa Mesa. Facial Lounge Founder and “Skin Whisperer” Amber Rose Johnson announces the September 1st opening of her second location just off the 73 freeway at Irvine Ave., right next door to the new hot spot, Coffee Dose.
Facial Lounge has been featured in For Women First! Here's what they had to say:
"I've been using a skin cycling regimen for nearly three weeks, and I'm impressed. I was nervous about chemically exfoliating my skin and immediately using a retinol the next night. So, I used a wash-off exfoliant for the first few cycles: the Facial Lounge Papaya Enzyme Face Mask."
On "hello glow", Amber gave her expert advice on the benefits of Gua Sha. "Relieves tension: Many of us hold tension in our faces, especially around our jaw line. Luckily, Gua Sha can significantly help reduce this tension when used regularly. Incorporating this practice can also help ease headaches and relieve stress, notes Amber Rose Johnson, expert esthetician and founder of Facial Lounge."
Any time cold - regardless of the vehicle - is used on the skin, it reduces inflammation and swelling, which can temporarily improve the contours of the face. "Icing is also anti-inflammatory, which helps calm acne, large pores, puffiness, and eye bags," says esthetician Amber Rose Johnson. "It constricts the blood vessels to improve circulation, and as blood starts to rise to the skin's surface, there is an instantly contoured, glowing look," she says. Simply put, less inflammation equals less puff for more definition and better contour.
Amber Rose Johnson has served the community for 21 years now, performing custom vegan facials out of her beachside bungalow in Corona Del Mar, California, and creating vegan skin care for acne issues and anti-aging. Her journey has made history, as she celebrates 21 years in business this month.
Amber Johnson was interviewed and featured in a publication with Les Nouvelles Esthetiques where they labeled her as the "Skin Whisperer." One highlight from Amber was the following: "Everything is customized, all of our facials are personalized to each skin type and facial preference. We give you what your skin needs. Our clients are like family and we really love building close relationships with our clients and view our little bungalow by the beach as an hour escape from the world for them to relax and unwind."

The beauty industry is constantly growing, and there is room for everyone big and small. I love seeing Ulta in Target and all the collaborations. The thing I love about small Indie brands is that there is a human behind it, they are real and usually make products in small batches.
