Summer is coming and we couldn’t be happier! However, with sunny, hot weather comes sweat, which can fuse with your makeup to cause blemishes and clogged pores. If you want to ensure a clear, beautiful complexion this summer, check out the HydraFacial in Bellevue.

What is the HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial has shot up in popularity over the past few years, due to its amazing results. It was even awarded “Best Facial to Transform Your Skin” by New Beauty and has even been featured in Allure and Marie Claire. This multi-step treatment uses cleansing, extraction, and hydration to help your skin look and feel its best. The treatment also uses super serums made from nourishing ingredients to help great an instant glow!

How It Works

The HydraFacial is a multi-step procedure that requires no downtime! First, cleansing and peeling occur to uncover a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing. Next is extraction and hydration, which uses suction to remove debris from pores. Nourishing moisturizer is also used to quench the skin. Lastly is fuse and protect. The skin’s surface is saturated with antioxidants and peptides to help maximize your results. Treatment usually only takes about 40 minutes to complete, so you can be in and out in no time and enjoying your new beautiful complexion!

HydraFacial Benefits

Watching your body change right in front of your eyes can be difficult. When we’re young we worry less about frown lines and crow’s feet, if at all. Although we were warned about our skin’s eventually changes, it’s jarring once they’re knocking on your doorstep. We adjust our skin care routine to incorporate more moisturizers and serums but it’s not always enough to get our skin looking like it was. Advanced Skin and Body Solutions’ signature Ultimate Age Defying Facial effectively targets aspects of aging skin to help it regain your skin’s youthful characteristics through 4 different therapies.

What Aspects of Aging Skin Does the Facial Target?

1.Thick Skin

Over time, our skin goes through a lot. We experience acne and the scarring that comes along with it. Microdermabrasion is one of the skin therapies used in our Age Defying Facial. This medical grade, painless, non-invasive treatment involves spraying microcrystals onto the skin and using a suction device to exfoliate the skin and reduce the top layer of dead skin cells. It’ll leave your skin softer and smoother.

2. Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Dark Spots, and Acne Scars

The Glycolic Peel is an effective way to tackle wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, dark spots, and acne scars. This chemical peel captures the outer layers of skin, reducing rough and dry skin, leaving uneven skin coloring and wrinkles behind, ultimately improving your skin’s appearance.

3. Skin Tone & Texture

Another skin therapy we use in the Age Defying Facial is the LED Light Treatment, a.k.a. Photo Rejuvenation. Originally used in the U.S. by NASA to improve wound healing and tissue in space, this specific light at exact wavelengths can be absorbed by connective tissue cells, promoting the production of collagen and elastic proteins that make the skin supple and flexible. This light stimulates the skin and underlying tissues enough to make eyes look less puffy, define cheekbones and jaw line, and make skin overall firmer.

4. Dull Skin

Our skin loses its natural glow over time. The bt-micro® ultrasonic treatment also exfoliates to leave skin smooth, soft, and ready to absorb skin care products. The skin treatment uses ultrasonic microcurrents to encourage applied product further into the skin. The bt-micro treatment also increases circulation and promotes cell renewal.

We recommend getting a series of 3 – 5 Age Defying Facials every 2 – 4 weeks that may give you the best results.

The Best Part of Our Signature Facial

Want to know the best part of our signature facial? It’s on sale for the entire month of April! Come in, sit back and relax while we work our magic.

Beauty trends come and go but if eyebrow history tells us anything, thick brows always find a way back into the limelight. Thanks to celebrities such as Cara Delevingne and Lilly Colins, thick eyebrows have been one of the hottest trends in beauty within the past decade. Since 2015, studies found that sales of eyebrow grooming and treatment products increased by +250%, with some eyebrow growth serums seeing an increase of +200%. Across the country, women are paying top dollar for eyebrow growth serums that may or may not help them achieve the natural full brows they seek. But can we blame them? It feels like only a few years ago women were waxing, tweezing, and some even shaving off their brows to achieve wispy fine brows like Kate Moss, Pamela Anderson, and Gwen Stefani. With beauty trends constantly changing (and botched eyebrow jobs happening regularly), could microblading be the key to easily going thinker?


Microblading is a new form of tattooing where pigment is embedded under the skin with hair-like strokes by a handheld tool. Unlike eyebrow extensions or drawing on your brows every morning, microblading offers a hassle-free option for those who always want their eyebrows ‘on fleek’ without the constant upkeep. Celebrities like Bella Thorne have embraced the new approach to the always-perfect full brow. The process is a little painful but anesthetics are usually used to keep clients feeling as comfortable as possible. While microblading is most loved for its low maintenance nature, it does require some attention after the procedure to keep your brows from fading or infection. The bright side: the results can last up to three years. As the pigment fading rate varies from person to person, it is recommended to go in for touch-ups every year. A few days of maintenance for years of your ideal brow? Yes, please.
While thin brows have their glory decades such as the 20s, 30s, and 90s, we can always count on a Joan Crawford, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Nina Simone, Brooke Shields, Whitney Houston, Madonna, or Cara Delevingne to give life to a full brow resurgence. Whether you over tweezed and your brows were never the same again, or you follow brow trends, Advanced Skin and Body Solutions wants to help you achieve your eyebrow goals.

Since microblading can be a big decision, especially if someone has previously wronged your brows, we offer FREE consultations for microblading. In our free consultation, we will walk you through the process, answer any questions or concerns you may have, and begin to learn about your natural brows hair growth pattern and determine which type of brow would work best for you. Advanced Skin and Body Solutions is here to help you achieve your most confident self. Call us today at 425-643-5772 to schedule an appointment or feel free to do so online.

Microneedling is offered at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions as an option for those who want to remove certain skin inequities. Microneedling tools cause a slight injury to the skin and activate the growth of collagen. Because summer usually entails a lot of sun exposure, we thought it may be useful to know which effects from the sun microneedling is especially great at fixing, including some that are just problems year-round, like stretch marks.

1. Hand Rejuvenation
By enabling elastin and collagen growth, microneedling helps the skin become thick and thus reduces the appearance of wrinkles and aging.

2. Age Spots
Excessive sun exposure can cause younger people to develop age spots, flat and light brown spots that are commonly seen in areas like the arms, hands, and shoulders. They appear more often in those over 50 years of age, but aren’t strangers to younger people. In micronoeedling, the pigment of those spots are reduced and sometimes gone!

3. Rosacea
For those who live with the skin disorder and can attest to their facial redness, know that microneedling is certainly a saving grace. Many things in the summertime can trigger rosacea including mere sunlight exposure. By inducing copious amounts of collagen, micro needling decreases the blood vessels’ hypersensitivity and thus, redness is reduced.

4. Acne/Scars
With all the sweating we do in the summer, acne can be quick to develop. Microneedling is a beneficial solution to acne as it helps to promote blood circulation and enhances the effect of acne products into treated areas for quicker and easier absorption. As for scars that acne is capable of leaving behind (oh, those painful memories), microneedling can improve the appearance of those scars. Scars from surgeries are also treatable with microneedling by using the device to jumpstart collagen growth.

5. Stretch Marks
These annoyances we get when our skin stretches faster than it can handle can become apparent and embarrass us. Usually seen in pregnancy, natural growth, or in gaining weight, stretch marks are fairly common, but aren’t completely unfixable. There’s a solution in microneedling which is responsible for improving them 70% of the way. Those are certainly odds we’re willing to bet on.

This service may just become a special soon, so keep your eyes peeled for exclusive offers! We’re glad to be serving you and your skin needs. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions. You can set up an appointment or contact us.

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] Spring is beginning to settle and we can tell because we have already started seeing some flowers appear. The Spring Radiance Facial at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions is utilizing our favorite part about Spring by combining fruits and flowers to take you back to times of warm, ocean side breezes and ultimately, take back the years.

[/av_textblock] [av_one_full first min_height=” vertical_alignment=” space=” custom_margin=” margin=’0px’ padding=’0px’ border=” border_color=” radius=’0px’ background_color=” src=” background_position=’top left’ background_repeat=’no-repeat’ animation=”] [av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] The pineapple used in our facial is formulated with moisturizing lactic acid and best of all, pineapple is known for containing digestive and skin softening enzymes that improve skin elasticity, skin hydration, and is effective at removing dead cells. The result is a clear, glowing complexion, perfect for the Spring and the upcoming Summer months. Now that there is more sunlight in our days, it’s important to note how much damage that can cause to our skin complexion by increasing the development of age spots. The pineapple in our Spring Radiance Facial is also a fighter against age spots and can help reduce them and fine lines.

The Hibiscus flower makes an appearance in this tantalizing facial. The flower acids offer a greater moisturizing feature than the lactic acid alone. This makes the facial ideal for all skin types and often leaves the skin effective at stimulating collagen activity. For lasting results, the added Hibiscus provides antioxidants for radiant skin that lasts longer. We weren’t kidding when we said we could take back a couple of years, either. The Hibiscus flower is commonly known as the “Botox Plant,” as it is powerful in increasing skin elasticity and naturally firms and lifts your skin.

Now think of all those wonderful things being massaged onto your skin as you sit back, relax, and prepare to wake up to a rejuvenated, radiant, and youthful you. We suppose it may also be safe to say Spring Break isn’t entirely over.

permanent makeup bellevue
Imagine waking up with your best face on. Imagine going for a swim, doing hot yoga, or dancing the night away in the hottest club with the confidence that your make-up is absolutely perfect. Or imagine having the scar on your lip beautifully camouflaged forever. Imagine being able to have your make up perfectly applied if you have Parkinson’s Disease, MS or any other condition that makes it impossible for you to apply your makeup on a daily basis.

With the mainstream popularity of tattooing, the art of permanent makeup is making a much welcome come back. Permanent makeup has been around for centuries. According to Cosmetic Surgery Forums, “This procedure is not new, as it dates back to the Egyptian days of Cleopatra (the Queen of Egypt), thousands of years ago. Cleopatra is believed to have been adorned with permanent makeup and Egyptian mummies have been recovered with face and body tattoos intact. Also, the ancient Japanese art of Tebori boasts full-body tattooing intricately done by hand.”

Without a doubt, the primary desire for permanent makeup is vanity. However, the art provides solutions to medical problems as well that can make people feel whole and restore their confidence.

The natural beauty of permanent makeup requires artistry, skill, and subtlety

The beauty of permanent makeup is a look that is natural — the result of artistry, skill, and subtlety, as well as an understanding of color and facial symmetry. When selecting an artist to apply your permanent make up procedure you will want to consider a variety of factors. Education, state and local certification for safety and cleanliness, and the experience of the artist/aesthetician are crucial and carry equal importance. A skillful artist can create the most natural look that will make you feel pretty and polished. Be sure to ask for a free consultation with the Aesthetician and ask to see before and after photos. Ask to speak with clients who have had the same procedures you are considering. Ask to see the equipment and where the procedure will be done.

According to Tawnya Lemley, Permanent Makeup Artist, Licensed Aesthetician and Permanent Lash Stylist in the Bellevue area, “You want to be sure that the artist you select to do your permanent makeup has the same idea of beauty that you do. You must trust their knowledge of color. Ask lots and lots of questions until you are completely satisfied.”

The point of permanent makeup is to feel confident and beautiful with your makeup. Carefully selecting your artist, based on experience, safety, cleanliness, artistic ability, and your personal idea of beauty will far exceed whatever price you pay.

If longer, fuller lashes at the top of your Christmas wish list, then Santa will be pleased to learn that lash extensions by Xtreme lashes are available this holiday season for a discount of $100 (instead of the normal $185) at Advanced Skin & Body Solutions. Won’t Santa be pleased? And you will too when you transform your ordinary lashes into lash-tastic lashes that make your friends a little green with envy.

False eyelashes as so old school, they are awkward to apply, temporary and stiff. Xtreme lashes, on the other hand, offer a semi-permanent solution, are applied by a professional and, best of all, look and feel like real lashes. No heavy falsies that you have to worry about falling off during the party, these lashes look so natural no one will know. What’s more you can kiss your mascara good-bye, because extensions naturally darken your lashes, your lashes will look vivid and mascara is not necessary. Hello, one less step to getting out the door in the morning.

So how do lash extensions work? Xtreme lashes are single strands of synthetic lashes applied to your natural lashes. Each strand is tapered with a thick base and curled to replicate a natural lash. This meticulous process delicately attaches synthetic lash to natural lash for a total of 60-120 lashes per eye – imagine how gorgeous you will look. The process is painless and so relaxing clients often find themselves lulled to sleep during the 1 ½ – 2 hour process of lash application. It’s the perfect procedure to have done during the busy holiday season to force you to take a moment for yourself in complete relaxation. (No texting during the procedure, unless you have learned to text with your eyes closed, so just lay back, take a deep breath and…)

This is the perfect time to get the gorgeous lashes that you have always wanted so you can feel extra glam for that holiday party, and with a little work you can make your Xtreme lashes last for months (maybe all of 2011). Because Xtreme lashes are applied individually to your real lashes, lash extensions need to be filled in every few weeks. (Everyone naturally sheds real lashes every few weeks, so extensions fall off with the lashes you lose. Don’t worry; this doesn’t happen all at once, it’s just like when you normally loose lashes from time to time.) The fill in lash procedure costs $68, so whether you want to stretch your gorgeous lashes to that spring wedding or through most of 2011, now is a great time to get started at the discount price of $100. (And for those who only want movie star lashes for one night, the synthetic lashes can be removed at any time with a special removal agent.)

Learn more about all of the benefits of Xtreme lashes and to book an appointment call our office at 425-643-5772. All of our lash stylists are professionally trained and happy to answer any questions you might have.

If you have been dreaming of lashes like the stars, you need the stars’ secret weapon – Xtreme lashes last extensions from Advanced Skin & Body Solutions.
