Lash extension are perfect for the summer - Brookline, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, July 30, 2014

By: Mary Kelley

Lash extension are a great accessory year-round but perfect for the summer. Lash extensions are different from false eyelashes purchased in a retail store. Instead of being a long strip of lashes, extensions are individual synthetic lashes that are applied to individual lashes on the upper lash line. When properly maintained, lash extensions are a great way to add a little, or a lot of, glamour to your look.

The first session—called a full set—lasts about an hour and a half. I go over the DOs and DON’Ts for extensions and how to care for the lashes. The treatment itself is very simple and relaxing. I apply an under eye treatment patch over the lower lashes to protect them and have my client keep her eyes closed throughout the treatment. After that, maintenance visits—called fills—take about 45 minutes and should be scheduled every two or three weeks. You can still wear eye makeup, just skip mascara on your upper lashes.

Here are some DOs and DON’Ts to help maintain your lash extensions:


  • Come in for fills every two or three weeks.
  • Schedule an appointment if you want your lash extensions removed. Trying to remove them yourself can result in damage to your natural lashes.


  • Use oil-based products. This will weaken the adhesive and cause the extensions to fall off.
  • Use mascara on your top lashes. The extensions will add length, volume, and color to your top lashes. You can use mascara on your bottom lashes. You can still use shadow and liner as usual as long as the products are oil free.
  • Rub or pick at your extensions. You will damage your natural lashes, as well as shorten the life of your extensions.
  • Spend too much time in steam or under hot water. This will loosen the extensions.

With a little bit of TLC, you can enjoy wonderful lashes all year round. Call Dream Spa Medical today for your free consultation.

Achieve a Healthy, Youthful and Wrinkle Free Glow – Brookline, MA

Darren Kincaid - Thursday, July 24, 2014

Women of all ages want to put their best face forward daily, whether at work or at play. As we age, it seems to take a little more time and effort, and though they say beauty is only skin deep, we want that skin to shine with a healthy, youthful glow. Though preventative measures to protect skin from showing signs of aging should be taken early in life (like using sunscreen and moisturizers), it’s never too late to start. There are tons of anti-aging products on the market, as well as facial treatments that can minimize wrinkles, enhance suppleness, and even out skin tone. A change in diet and other habits can ensure radiant skin for years to come.

Women head to spas for full-body waxing, makeup application, and facial treatments. For facials, glycolic peels are very popular. Glycolic peels are more gentle than physician’s strength. They target the surface of the skin to eat away dead skin cells, help with fine lines and wrinkles, and reveal a more dewy, supple skin appearance without making your skin dry and flaky like physician’s strength can. Adding this to your preventative and correcting skin-treatment plan can make a beautiful difference.

As for brightening and tightening the facial skin, adding a skincare product rich in vitamin C, along with daily sunscreen, will make brighter, tighter skin and a more even skin tone. The health of your skin not only benefits from what you apply topically, but also what you eat. Not smoking, getting plenty of sleep, eating a well-balanced diet, exercising, and even just adding fresh lemon slices to your water can promote healthy, glowing skin.

Dream Spa Medical helps transform womens’ appearances by offering anti-aging and skin-care treatments. Many women are concerned with correcting wrinkles, but it is important to understand the different types of wrinkles and their causes, so that they can be properly treated.

Dynamic wrinkles are formed where muscles move the face and those tend to go very deep. Their appearance is obvious even when you aren’t using your facial muscles. You can find them between your eyes — the furrows that give you an angry look — and around your mouth. Static wrinkles are superficial wrinkles that appear most obviously when your face is moving. They can give your age away even if the rest of your face is smooth. A great way to battle these types of wrinkles is to do facial resurfacing or Retin-A cream. The best thing to do is come into Dream Spa Medical for a complimentary skincare assessment, so a qualified aesthetician can create a customized treatment plan and home care routine that will achieve your anti-aging goals.

Tips For Summertime Facials - Brookline, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, July 21, 2014

One of the most important things to remember when getting a facial is that the treatment is not one-size-fits-all. In the summertime, our skin is often very different than it is throughout the rest of the year.

Before you book your facial, call the spa and tell them your skin concerns and ask if they offer treatments that can address those issues. Make sure the esthetician personalizes the products to your skin type and methods to your personal preference. For example, those with sensitive skin might want to avoid the type of treatments that those with oily skin might receive.

Whether you have dry skin, oily skin, acne-prone skin, sensitive skin or a combination of all the above, a good skincare therapist should perform a customized service that is best suited to your particular condition.

Believe it or not, despite the fact that we sweat all summer, the more simple the facial the better. When you think about it, this makes sense. The fewer ingredients there are in a product the less likely you are to experience a negative reaction. This,p is especially important for pregnant women.

You should also change the products and type of facial you receive depending on the season. In the summer, there is plenty of moisture in the air, while the winter is much drier and harsher on skin, especially on your face – the treatments used during your facial should reflect that.

If you can afford the time, monthly facials – or at least seasonal – ensures the best results for your skin. Regular monthly facials are needed to properly exfoliate the skin and remove dead cells to unclog the pores.

To set up your facial, or for more information, contact Dream Spa Medical.
