Laser Hair Removal Review



I have wanted laser hair removal for the longest time. And, last year I took the plunge and started getting laser hair removal in three spots. Bikini, underarms and legs.


The reason I am writing this post is because I found an amazing woman who does my laser and to all the local people that read my blog, I want to tell you a bit about her. 



She is located in Fort Myers , Florida 



Lisa Hart

Medical Aesthetician, Certified Laser Specialist

Lisa Hart
Lisa Hart, Medical Aesthetician, Certified Laser and Permanent Makeup Specialist has been in the medical skin care industry in Fort Myers, since 2000. She began her career as an independent contractor doing permanent makeup in several doctor’s offices and realized the love and passion she had for the medical skin care industry. At that time, she went back to school to become a medical aesthetician and receiving certification as a laser specialist. She holds an Associates in Science degree and has the intention to keep furthering her education in the medical field. Lisa Hart has received numerous advanced laser certifications and has worked with many doctors training and assisting at laser workshops.

Furthermore, Lisa has many years of experience with medical grade peels helping her patients receive their maximum skin care goals. She knows that clinical skin care offers a full spectrum of anti-aging treatments and medical skin solutions compared to regular day spa treatments. She has a passion for enhancing one’s appearance and well being. In her spare time, she enjoys, running, fishing, boating, and spending time with her family. The name of Sky Med Spa was inspired and named after her daughter Skyler.




















































I have went for about 6 sessions. But couldn't do all areas at once bc I was very tan especially on my legs. So, I went to 6 sessions but not of each. I am absolutely thrilled with how professional Lisa is and I really do trust her. She makes you feel at ease and makes the whole experience a pleasure/


I would highly recommend her to any one in need of laser hair removal ! She is great and I have maintained great results. So, I say if you're anywhere near southwest Florida, she is the person to see if you need laser or any kind of aesthetic procedures done. 


Sky Med Spa is located :

Milani Hair 3-IN-1 Clipless Curling Iron

I was lucky enough to have been sent the Milani Hair 3-in-1 clipless curling iron by the founder of Milani hair,  Leyla Milani Khoshbin . Visit her website HERE

The 3-in 1 clipless curling iron which is, essentially a curling iron that is tapered/skinny on one end, and it doesn't have a clamp. You just wrap your hair around it, hold for a few seconds, and then let go. It sounds hard, but I got the hang of it after a few minutes, and it was really easy/fast. 


First, I sectioned it off. On each section, I sprayed L'ORÉAL Paris ELNETT SATIN HAIR SPRAY - FLEXIBLE HOLD. Then, I brushed through, and curled all of the sectioned off pieces of my hair. You only have to hold the hair on for about 5 seconds. When you let go, you have the most amazing, shiny, bouncy curls. 

But the great thing about  Milani Hair 3-in-1 clipless curling iron is that it comes with 3 Interchangeable Ceramic Barrels in 3 Different Sizes: 1/4", 3/4", 1" .  And, it also comes with a heat protectant glove to keep you from burning the tips of your fingers. 



With Milani Hair The Triple Threat, hair becomes:
 Perfectly Styled: From soft beachy waves to tight curls with frizz-free definition.
Frizz-free: Ceramic technology produces negative ions to seal cuticles and repel
humidity.
Shiny: Tourmaline ceramic technology allows for quick and even heat distribution for a healthier, silkier finish.
More Protected: Tourmaline-coated barrel prevents hair damage and residue buildup.

I have really straight hair that usually does not take well to a curl at all. And, with this I was able to achieve gorgeous tight curls using the smallest barrel. This is what my hair looked like, after I curled my entire head with the smallest barrel :

















And the best part is I slept on my hair and the curls loosened in my sleep leaving me with a softer, sexier curl. Below, is second day slept on hair :



This is slept on hair with just a bit of hairspray the next morning. Which proves that the curls held up really well ! And, left me with a softer bouncier curl.



I am so thrilled with the results that the Milani Hair 3-in-1 clipless curling iron gave me. I have tried other hair wands and none of them seem to hold the curl as well as this did ! Like I said, my hair usually doesn't hold a curl well. And, with anything else I've ever tried, I have never had curls last me two days (and I am going on three days)


 I highly recommend the Milani Hair 3-in-1 clipless curling iron. Not only has it given me lasting curls but I think it is great that it has 3 barrels. You really are getting 3 curling irons in one. What more could you ask for ? I also think that it is very reasonably priced for everything you are getting. 



Now, here are some other products from the Milani Hair line that have caught my eye :





"Big Hair Don't Care : was designed by Milani Hair founder, Leyla Milani--known for her BIG hair! This lightweight powder is designed to give a major boost of volume to hair of any type and length while providing a matte finish.  Never feeling sticky or stiff, it can be used several times throughout the day." 

Directions: Style hair as desired and sprinkle a small amount over entire head. Then use your fingers to scrunch and move hair in any direction to achieve the look you want.  For extra lift and volume, sprinkle powder directly on roots then tease and/or massage in.  Want even more volume? Flip your hair upside down and sprinkle powder over entire head, then flip back and scrunch. Finish by spraying a light amount of our Hold It Right There hair spray and you're set!




No h2o Volumizing Dry Shampoo :  This is great to keep your hair style looking fresh. Lets face it. We all don't have time to wash our hair everyday ( and it isn't good to wash your hair a lot, anyway). This product also gives your hair  major volume.   


How to Use Dry Shampoo:

  • Start out by brushing your hair thoroughly, making sure there are no tangles or knots. 
  • Spray product evenly throughout hair. If you have very greasy hair, apply more.
  • Let the dry shampoo set in your hair. A few minutes should be long enough for the dry shampoo to absorb the sebum in your hair. If you have particularly greasy hair, it may take a little longer.
  • Towel your hair until all the dry shampoo is absorbed. Then, brush again for beautiful, degreased hair. Style normally.

Hold It Right There :  is the latest in spray technology. This versatile hair spray lets you decide what level of hold you want.  This humidity resistant, thermal friendly formula will never get sticky.  Brush through and restyle hair as many times as desired.  Great for today's high fashion longer hair styles and excellent to use on your Milan Hair extensions.

Directions:  Set dial to desired hold.  Hold can 10 to 12 inches away from hair and spray evenly.


Judging by how happy I am with the Milani Hair 3-in-1 clipless curling iron. I think all of the products from Leyla Milani's line will be fabulous. And, I  can't wait to get my hands on them !

Hair Inspiration

I have not cut or colored my hair in about 7 years. So, I thought it was time to change up my look a bit and I found some hair inspiration photo's that I thought I would share with you guys. I am very happy with the way my hair turned out. I am considering lightening it a little bit. But, I did a slight ombre. I didn't want a drastic change in colors from my natural color to the highlight. I stressed that to my hairdresser and she did an AMAZING job.  I am absolutely in love with my hair and would highly recommend my hairdresser to any one in the area. (details,below)


Here are my inspirational photos for hair :


Jessica Biel



     
Jamie-Lynn Sigler


This is the hair cut and color I ended up with . I am thrilled with it. I may make it more blonde before I go back to Florida. Opinions welcomed !

Pictures of my hair ( Pardon the no makeup, only mascara)










Do you think I should stick with these ever so slight highlights, or go a bit more caramel?







The salon that I got my hair done at is :

Salon Neo 

1108 Forest Avenue  Staten Island, NY 10310
(718) 273-6800

I went to the owner Erica Delgado at Salon Neo and she did my hair so beautifully and she is very sweet !

 If you go to her mention that you found her through my blog !! It may help you out ;)



So, do you like my new hair do for the New Year ?


Happy New Year to everyone reading this ! May your wishes, hopes and dreams come true in 2013 !
