Not all of us were blessed with naturally beautiful eyebrows that never require maintenance or attention. In fact, virtually everyone (men, too!) can benefit from having their eyebrows professionally shaped, at least once in their lifetime. While the natural shape of some people's eyebrows makes it easy to determine where they should be trimmed and groomed, it's less obvious with others, which is why it's wise to have someone who is specifically trained in eyebrow shaping help you to determine a natural shape that suits your face.

You may be thinking, "they're just eyebrows, why all the fuss?" but it's amazing what proper shaping or too much or too little hair removal can do for the overall appearance of a person's face. Plus, it's easy to go overboard, when you don't know what you're doing, and eyebrows that are over-plucked may never grow back.

Professional Eyebrow Shaping at a Brisbane Day Spa

When you book a professional shaping session at a Brisbane day spa like our own, the trained technician will redefine each eyebrow, tending to the top of the brows as well as trimming and removing hairs from the underside of the brows. Just one hair that's out of place can totally change the look of your eyebrows and overall facial appearance. Don't believe us? Come and see for yourself!

While most people have heard some of the reasons massage therapy is good for one's mental and physical health, few know about the different types of massage that are available and how they can be of benefit. Swedish massage is just one of several types of therapy that you will find available at a Brisbane day spa, such as iBeauty Medispa.

Popular  -  and For Good Reason!

It isn't difficult to find a place that offers Swedish massage in Brisbane, and this is because it's the most traditional type of massage therapy available. While styles of massage like deep tissue and hot stone were designed with various specific purposes in mind, such as targeting certain areas of the body that are particularly tense or sore, or focusing on relieving stress and less on specific muscle groups, Swedish massage strikes a good balance. It's a very popular form of massage because the therapist can help you alleviate tension or aches and pains in specific areas of the body, while relieving stress and making you feel relaxed.

For many men and women in Brisbane, microdermabrasion is something they've heard of but have no idea what the treatment process involves or how it can be of benefit. Ultimately, it's the safe and proven way to resurface the skin, eliminating pore build-up, smoothing fine lines, wrinkles and even scars. Microdermabrasion could be an effective skin treatment for a wide variety of people, all with varying skin types, even those whose skin is sensitive.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

One of the things our Brisbane day spa clients are always surprised to discover is just how quickly one can see results with microdermabrasion. Unlike some treatment processes that require multiple sessions before any noticeable results are revealed, microdermabrasion lifts the outer or superficial layer of skin to expose smoother, more radiant skin. These are some of the many ways your face, neck and décolletage will benefit from microdermabrasion:

In the past, when sun exposure and the natural aging process caused sun and age spots, freckles, moles and broken capillaries, there was little one could do about it. Now, with advances in medical spa technology, IPL photo rejuvenation allows us to turn back time - at least as far as our complexions go! With treatments administered to areas like the face, neck, décolletage, arms and hands, you can eliminate the irregular pigmentation and other spots or marks that can make you look older than you are.

How Does IPL Photo Rejuvenation Work?

When the IPL wand passes over an area of the face, neck, arms or hands, light waves target the colour pigments, or specifically the moles, freckles, broken capillaries and other imperfections you wish to eliminate. The reason IPL photo rejuvenation is a treatment of choice for many Brisbane women and even men, is that it delivers many of the same benefits as a facelift, without the invasive procedure and required recovery time.

It's strange to think that the holiday season - a time of togetherness, good eating and time off from work - could leave you feeling stressed, but more often than not, people are just downright exhausted in January. There are many reasons why the New Year is one of the best times of the year to visit your favourite day spa in Brisbane for a little 'me' time.

Alleviate Stress

No wonder a lot of us feel stressed during the holidays! There's so much to do, it can all be a little overwhelming; shopping for gifts and food, decorating your home, family and friends to entertain, children's holiday concerts and parties to attend, not to mention burning the midnight oil at work just so you can take your vacation time!

By the time the 25th of December rolls around, many people are already mentally and physically exhausted. Taking the time to visit a day spa in Brisbane for some pampering, either during or following Christmas time, is a great way to alleviate that stress. Whether you visit for a relaxing...

Every December, people make resolutions to do a whole host of things in the new year, from losing weight and committing to going to the gym 5 days a week to eating less sugar or spending less time online. Unfortunately, by February, many of those resolutions are long forgotten and the goals are never met.

For this coming year, why not make a resolution to do something that's guaranteed to deliver the results you want and need - make 2015 a year for great skin! While our day spa in Brisbane offers many treatments that can dramatically improve the look and feel of your skin, the following are some simple things you can do to achieve your 2015 skincare resolution.

1. Wear Sunscreen Daily: Your doctor and favourite day spa in Brisbane have been saying this forever, and for good reason. Find a lightweight moisturiser with SPF and get in the habit of applying it daily. It's your best defense against the sun's damaging rays and a sure way to maintain younger looking skin.

2. Moisturise: Apply a good quality moisturiser to your face and body morning and night, because moisturised skin looks younger and healthier. Slathering on a good lotion after you get out of the shower, before your skin is totally dry, is a good habit to get into.

  I'm sure every woman has gone to bed with her makeup on at least once. Whether it's because they're too tired or they forget, many women wonder what the effects will be if they don't wash their face. Realistically, missing one night of washing isn't likely to cause any serious breakouts, but not washing your face on a daily basis can lead to clogged pores and even acne. And, it's not just makeup that you should be concerned about! Just think about the number of times you touch your face during the day. That's a lot of bacteria left on the surface of the skin, just waiting to erupt into a bigger problem.

Instead, for great looking, healthy skin, adopt a skin care routine that you can easily work into your pre-bed rituals - something so simple and foolproof, you won't be able to come up with an excuse to skip it. To establish which skin care products are best for your particular skin type and/or skin issues, it's a great idea to visit a skin care expert at a day spa in Brisbane. During a professional...

Hot summer weather, while great for our spirits, can wreak havoc on our hair. More than 10 % of our hair is composed of water, but some of the moisture that keeps our hair looking healthy is evaporated on warm, sunny days. While many beauty salons in Brisbane sell moisture-infusing hair treatments, there are some things you can do at home to prevent your tresses from becoming overly dry this summer. Give the following hair care tips a try:

1. Choose the Right Shampoo for the Season: While you can't do much about the summer heat, you can use a shampoo that will help restore your hair's moisture. Look for shampoos that contain keratin, panthenol or other moisture-giving ingredients. Virtually all of the beauty salons in Brisbane carry shampoos, conditioners and other products specifically designed to help restore moisture to hair.

2. Up Your Water Intake: Keep your hair soft and healthy looking by increasing the amount of water you drink in the summer time. Just like the right shampoo can help restore...
