Spray Tanning Advice

Thinking of getting a professional spray tan? Our tanning advice below will give you the full run down of how to prepare for your treatment, the treatment itself and maintenance. A St.Tropez Tanning Treatment gives you a flawless tan with professional results.

How to prepare before treatment

  • We recommend you have a patch test 24 hours prior to your St.Tropez tanning treatment.
  • It is preferable not to apply any type of perfume, deodorant oraromatherapy oils on the day of your treatment as these may reduce the results.
  • Waxing or shaving should be completed at least 24 hours prior to the treatment to reduce sensitivity. For laser hair removal please seek advice from your practitioner.
  • For Spray Tanning, the evening before or morning of your treatment, exfoliate your entire body using St.Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Polish. Pay special attention to dry areas of your body such as hands, elbows, knees and feet.
  • Wear dark, loose fitting clothing as not to disturb the tan when getting dressed. Please be aware the guide colour can stain light hair, man-made fibres and wool.

The Treatment

Spray Tan Application – Approximately 15 minutes. After selecting the appropriate St.Tropez Bronzing Mist, available in Classic, Dark and new Express you will receive a professional full body straight after the treatment.

After Treatment Advice

  • Your tan will begin to develop immediately after your treatment.
  • Do not shower or bathe for a minimum of 4 hours after your treatment. The ideal development time is 8 hours.
  • During the development time, do not participate any activity which may cause perspiration.
  • It is fine to leave the guide colour on overnight and wash in the morning.
  • Some guide colour may transfer to bed linen. This will wash out of cotton but not so easily from man-made fibres or wool.

Tan Maintenance Tips

  • With the correct aftercare your tan can last longer. Apply St.Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Moisturiser daily to hydrate your skin and maintain your tan for longer.
  • Exfoliate your skin with St.Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Polish every 3 days to ensure your tan fades evenly.
  • After showering or bathing pat your skin dry rather than rubbing.
  • Avoid swimming pools as chlorine can bleach the skin causing your tan to fade faster.


Semi-Permanent Lash Extensions

Extend Lashes is the individual lash extensions treatment created exclusively by Nouveau Lashes.

Giving you the appearance of fuller, thicker looking lashes with added volume. For 24/7 powerful eyes, this is it - The ultimate lash treatment. You want fuller, thicker, longer lashes from the moment you wake? Extend makes it happen. Extend lash extensions are soft but strong. Each is beautifully curled and tapered to imitate natural lashes. They’re light enough not to weigh your own lashes down and the effect is flawless.

How does it work?

Top-quality Extend lash extensions are attached one by one to each of your lashes. They come in different lengths, thicknesses and styles. You choose how bold a statement you want to make. Subtlety or all-out glamour - The choice is yours.

How long does it take/last?

After a short consultation, you can put your feet up for approx 90 beautifying minutes. What’s not to love? Then you’re set for up to eight weeks with optional in-fills every 2-3 weeks. To keep your lashes looking their best, maintenance is required. Don’t neglect the aftercare.

Will it damage my natural lashes?

Be assured that our Extend latex-free lash adhesive has been formulated and tested to prevent damage to your lashes. You’re in safe hands with a Nouveau Lashes technician. One thing to remember - Brave as you are, never try to take Extend lash extensions off on your own without using our Lash Extension Remover. That’s just asking for trouble.

What aftercare is involved?

Look after yourself. You and your lovely lashes deserve it. Pick up our Lash & Brow Tool with Mini Mascara Wands or Disposable Mascara Wands for use twice daily, ensuring your new lashes are here to stay and for as long as possible. See below for further details:
  • For the first 48 hours after any Extend treatment it’s important not to allow water to come into contact with your lashes.
  • For 2 days afterwards do not steam your face, use a steam bath, swim or wash your face with hot water.
  • Do not use waterproof mascara.
  • Use oil free make-up remover if mascara is worn (only use a water-based mascara).
  • Do not attempt to perm or use lash curlers on Nouveau Lashes extensions.
  • Don’t rub your eyes when washing your face – always pat the lashes dry after cleansing.
  • Ensure lashes are not manipulated into different positions (e.g. when sleeping, cleansing the face, applying moisturiser or cosmetics).


LvL Lash Treatment

Created exclusively by Nouveau Lashes, the LVL Lash Lift is the revolutionary natural lash treatment taking the beauty industry by storm.

You’ve already got what it takes, you just haven’t seen it yet. The LVL Lash Lift is the revolutionary lash phenomenon that reveals your natural lashes in all their glory.

Without you having to do a thing, make the most of what nature gave you with the length, volume and lift effect of LVL.

By straightening your natural lashes at the root and then tinting them, the LVL Lash Lift gives you the appearance of longer, thicker lashes. No mascara. No messing. Just perfect lashes from the moment you wake up.

How long will it take/last?

Around 45 minutes with an expert LVL lash technician. It’s a closed-eye procedure too. Relax and take a power nap. You’re then set for up to 6-8 weeks.

Will it damage my natural lashes?

We’re the undisputed authority in lash care. So you can be assured that our LVL products have been specifically formulated and tested to prevent damage to your lashes.

  • Ensure your lashes do not come into contact with water for the first 48 hours after your SVS treatment, to allow the adhesive to cure
  • Avoid steam, sauna, and swimming for 48 hours after treatment –remember this includes heat from an oven and steam from the kettle
  • Do not use any mascara as this will cause the fans to close and may impede the maintenance of the treatment
  • Try not to use liquid eyeliners, as these can affect the lashes
  • Use only oil-free make up remover (ours is specially formulated one to use with SVS extensions)
  • Be mindful how you sleep at night as sleeping face down may reduce the longevity and change the appearance of the lashes
  • Do not use lash curlers as this will cause your lashes to break

  • Take care when cleansing, moisturising and applying make-up that you don’t manipulate your lashes into different positions as this may cause them to loosen or fall off
  • SVS lashes are a fan application method which is created using extra fine lash extensions, therefore, we do not recommend clients use any conditioning serums, as this will encourage the fans to close and stick together

Facial Treatment

A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. A facial will cleanse, exfoliate, and nourish the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion and can help your skin look younger. You also receive advice on the best way to take care of your skin. A facial works best when it is part of an on-going program of skin care.

We recommend a monthly facial as that is how long it takes the skin to regenerate. Why not four times a year to feel nice and refreshed with each season?


Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - 'Rei' which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and 'Ki' which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy".

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
