Beauty Treatments

Here we will explain the range of beauty treatments available at Glossy Locks Hair & Beauty Salon in Newport. The benefits of our beauty treatments will be explained along with how long each procedure takes.

Botox

Wrinkle reductions one of the most popular facial aesthetic treatments today. At Beauty Basics we offer a non-surgical treatment using Botulinum Toxin® or Botox as it is popularly known to most people. Botox is highly effective with an excellent safety record and has been used professionally for over 15 years without any known adverse side affects.

Both men and women can benefit from the treatment to reduce and eliminate the appearance of frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and other smile lines. As we get older, our skin loses its elasticity through various constant facial expressions as well as being damaged by the sun or smoking. By injecting small quantities of purified botulinum protein into the desired areas will relax the facial muscles and smooth out the skin giving you a youthful and natural look.

The wrinkle reduction treatment is relatively quick and simple and you will only feel a slight discomfort from the injections. Our experienced practitioners will discuss the procedure beforehand and assess the areas you would like treated. The whole process may only take approximately 20 minutes.

Dermal fillers

Commonly referred to as Restylane, dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid gel that help restore your skin’s volume, creating softness and revitalizing your appearance.

What are dermal fillers used for? Hyaluronic acid, abundant in youthful skin, changes in distribution and function as we age and it’s these changes that produce the characteristic signs of aging. Restylane is a hyaluronic acid gel that closely resembles the hyaluronic acid occurring naturally in the body, which means it reduces the risk of an inflammatory reaction or other side effects. Dermal fillers help replenish your skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, helping revitalize and ‘plump up’ your skin, instantly reducing the appearance of lines and giving your skin a softer look.

Will I be suitable for the injections? Your Clinician will assess your suitability for dermal filler injections during a free initial consultation. The consultation will involve suitable medical testing and an examination will also be taken. Restylane is a hyaluronic acid gel.When should I not have dermal filler injections?

Do not have dermal filler injections if you:

  • have an infection where the treatment will be injected

  • are allergic to any of the ingredients

  • are pregnant, or think you may be pregnant

  • have a permanent implant placed in a treatment area

Spray Tanning

Spray tanning involves an application of chemicals sprayed onto the skin. The popularity of spray tanning has risen after health authorities have linked UV sun rays to skin cancer. Excessive use of tanning beds can also cause skin cancer, which makes spray tanning a preferred option. Some people use tanning lotion, although spray tanning gives a more desired effect when applied correctly by a professional. Spray tanning also lasts longer and reduces the risk of leaving a residue on clothing and bed sheets.

Eyelashes and Eyebrows

Eyelash or eyebrow tinting is for those wishing to have the hair around their eyes stand out, without using makeup. With tinted lashes or brows, there will be no smudging and no need to wash off at night. You will wake up every morning looking like you already have makeup on. There’s a wide range of colours to choose from at our beauty salon. Tinting normally takes around 15 minutes to complete.

Body and Eyebrow Waxing

Waxing removes the hair from the root and takes around 4 – 6 weeks to grow back. In rare cases, this can be as soon as 1 week, depending on your “hair growth cycle”. It depends on the individual. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, from eyebrows and face to pubic areas, arms and legs. Several waxing methods are used to remove unwanted hair, depending on your skin type and area of hair removal.
