Cellulite Reduction Therapy (NEW)

“Change Your Body Without Surgery”

Introducing the GX99 to relieve the following conditions:

Unexplained weight gain, daily exercise with poor results, unusual fatigue, joint pain, muscle pain & spasms, poor muscle tone, restless leg syndrome, migraine headaches, disturbed sleep patterns, scar tissue, poor circulation, cold extremities, fluid retention, constipation, & slow metabolism.

What is Cellulite?
Cellulite has been characterized as plump fat cells that are stuck together giving the appearance of dimpled or orange peel skin. It is found on the inner and outer thighs, buttocks, hips, knees, back of the arm and abdominal areas.

How did I get cellulite?
Cellulite is commonly linked to:
Lack of water, mineral oil based skin care products, genetics, pregnancy, medications, tight undergarments, yo-yo dieting, smoking, consumption of foods high in preservatives and obesity.

Is it possible to reduce Cellulite?
Absolutely! Although there is no permanent cure for it, there is a way to effectively fight and drastically reduce it with the GX99.

What can I expect from my treatments?
With proper body analysis and a customized treatment program performed with physiotherapy, a vibratory massage, we are able to decrease excess fluid retention and unblock the paths of the lymphatic system to increase circulation and metabolism. The results are increased blood flow and a decrease of lumps and bumps, which are broken down to allow the body to re-establish the elasticity of the connective tissue. Each treatment is equivalent to a 45 min aerobic workout. A slimmer, more toned, smoother body is an expected result.

Radiancy IPL System (NEW)

LHE (Light and Heat) therapies rely on the innate synergetic relationship between light and heat to create a singularly efficient photo-thermal technique. Various procedures include:

A revolutionary technology known as selective photo-thermalysis targets age spots, hyper-pigmented areas, as well as facial vascular lesions including rosacea. The treatment begins with restoration of the skins collagen fibers while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Suggested schedule for hyper-pigmented lesions, fine lines and wrinkles, firming and toning are one treatment per month for a minimum of three months. Vascular lesions (micro spider facial veins) and rosacea are two times per week for a minimum of three weeks.

Acne Phototherapy:
Creates an oxygen rich environment that destroys the harmful acne causing bacteria while minimizing inflammation. Recommended treatment schedule is two times per week for four weeks, for a total of eight treatments.

Hair Removal:
This photo epilation procedure ensures permanent hair reduction both safely and efficiently on all skin types. The hair is removed by damaging the root, thereby significantly delaying its re-growth. Recommended treatments are every six weeks.

Electrolysis is the only FDA approved method for permanent hair removal.

Analysis of the area and history of previous hair removal is necessary to determine the number of treatments needed.

Permanent Cosmetics

Barbara Strafella, D.A.A.M., C.P.C.T., L.M.T.A., has been creating Beautiful Faces for over twenty years. Her career began as a Cosmetologist, followed by extensive training in makeup application including special lighting makeup and camouflage. Barbara went a step further by adding advanced education in Permanent Cosmetics and Medical Tattooing. Her training was enhanced by working with some of the finest cosmetic surgeons on Staten Island to fulfill the need for medical tattooing. She continues to work closely with these physicians and their patients on Staten Island, Brooklyn and Manhattan. All procedures are performed under aseptic conditions with sterilized disposable needles. All procedures require a consultation.

Procedures Offered:

Permanent Eyebrows
Permanent Eye Liner
Permanent Lip Liner

Permanent MakeUp, or Permanent Cosmetics are available to those who would like to “Wake Up With MakeUp!” It is waterproof, smear proof, kiss proof and most importantly, can be an enhancement or a re-creation of your facial features. The procedure consists of implantation of micro-pigments into the second layer of the skin. All procedures are natural looking and feature-enhancing.

If your brows are gone before the day is over or you are self conscious about having your brows on 24/7, you are a perfect candidate for permanent eyebrows. Eyebrow arches seem to disappear or droop as we age, causing unneeded stress. Permanent MakeUp can fill in sparse brows or raise your brow and arch to give the appearance of a brow lift. Most permanent eyeliner procedures are performed because applying eyeliner in a straight line has become a daily chore. Have you recently purchased a magnifying mirror to use while applying your eyeliner? If so, then permanent eyeliner could be the right choice for you. Upper and lower eyeliner applications are available. Eliminate the need for reapplying your lipstick and lip liner throughout the day. Permanent lip liner will leave your lips well defined with a healthy look, appearing fuller and straighter. Besides having perfectly shaped lips, a positive benefit to having permanent lip liner is a decrease in the appearance of upper lip wrinkles.

Applying eyeliner can be a daily challenge for those with arthritis, limited motor skills, or vision impairments. Eyebrows can be re-created to their original arch for those treated with chemotherapy and radiation that either have no hair or bare spots on the brow. Scar revision is available to treat burned skin by restoring collagen to its natural state allowing pores to resurface. All procedures are available for men, women and children.

Permanent Eyebrows
“Home of The Perfect Brow”

Perfect eyebrows are a must at Wake Up With MakeUp!, Barbara has shaped brows
for many of the industries major cosmetic companies at “Brow Events”. She is known
to create the perfect brow for every face shape. Permanent MakeUp is then incorporated
into this perfect brow theory, only after your own brows have been perfectly shaped to suit
your facial features, even if you have minimal hair to work with. Your brows will have a soft powdery finish, which resembles natural brow hair.

Another option is to totally recreate your brow shape to offer the illusion of a brow lift.
Either way your new shape will flow with your eyes to frame your face and compliment
your skin tone and eye color.

Permanent Eyeliner

When the eyes are not outlined they blend into the rest of your face, when properly
outlined the iris appears significantly larger and the eyes become more noticeable.
The eyes own natural shape takes on a youthful form when attention is drawn to
the lashes instead of the lids.

All eyeliners begin with a lash enhancement that connects them at the base to give
the look of fuller lashes with the eyes open. Eyeliner can then be tattooed on the lid
to your specifications either following your shape to keep a natural look or winged
to create a lift to the outer edge.

Lipliner can restore the upper lip to its original shape. With certain facial movements
your natural lipline can be found and then recreated. Once this step is complete you
