Gel nails

BY Zelmarie Breytenbach (the nail-fairy)

With nails there are just so many options.
So today we will chat a little more about Gel Nails

Gel is the name of a certain nail enhancement system.  Within this system you get hard gels and you get soft gels.

Hard gel gets its name because, once cured, it is tough enough to be made into a nail extension.These hard gels can be used to lengthen the nail and is tough and durable.  An example of these gels in our Maskscara range is the Builder gels and come in a UV and LED curable form.

Soft gel refers to the gel products that are too soft to create a nail extension. This includes gel polishes and thicker gels meant for gel-overlay services. An example of these gels in our Maskscara range is the Gel-it polishes and Sculpture gels.

Gel polishes are used for the increasingly popular gel polish manicures. These gels can last anything from 10-21 days on natural nails or applied over acrylic.

All gel services are performed using some form of gel, which usually comes in pots of gel or bottles of gel polish. Gel also comes in a variety of colors. All forms of gel require curing, or hardening, under a UV or LED light.

UV and LED curing refers to the chemical process that occurs when the gel itself are exposed to the UV or blue light. 

The process typically ends with an application of cuticle oil on all fingers, to bring back nourishment into the cuticle after harsh alcohol application.

Gel nails present the following pro's:

  • Gel nails can allow those allergic to acrylic or nail resin to enjoy an extension service
  • Many gel nail clients report that gel nails feel more natural 
  • Soft gel nails (gel polish) are easily removed with acetone when soaked or wrapped for about 8–15 minutes and do little to no damage to the natural nail
  • Gel polish manicures can last up to 3 weeks with no chipping, peeling or cracking
  • Leaves a glossier finish
  • Gel nails do not produce any odor
  • The curing time is very fast when using an L.E.D. light. 
  • Gel polish nails mean immediately dry nails after a manicure - no more smudging 
  • Holds shine and does not fade like regular nail polish

IPL laser hair removal and facial rejuvenation

BY Zelmarie Breytenbach (the nail-fairy)

Ever wondered about #IPL laser hair removal or skin rejuvenation but never knew exactly how it works?  Or Maybe you even tried it and was miss informed and never received the desired results?


Well at #fabwomen we strive to educate, help and get the best possible results for our clients!


Lets focus a little bit on IPL laser hair removal.

First things first, you need to understand that laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure and therefore no machine can claim a 100% guaranteed hair free results!  It is designed for cosmetic hair reduction and therefore a good result in less hair to almost hair free can be achieved.  Results are also based on various factors that can have influence on it, and can also be caused by hormonal or medical factors.


How safe is IPL laser?

Based on published studies done by H. Chan, MD, performed over a 6-month period with different types of lasers and IPL systems no evidence was found of any skin cancers or skin toxicity.

It is very important to remember that that there is a wide variety of lasers and each laser machine has it is own main functions and what it is specifically designed for!  A “soft laser” treatment is NOT laser – it is only light therapy and must never be confused for laser like IPL or YAG lasers!  Please make sure you familiarise yourself with the exact treatment and machine that is being done.


How does IPL laser hair removal work on the hair?

To understand how the laser work for hair removal you need to understand the hair growth cycle.The hair follicle moves through different stages during growth. 

1) the anagen phase – active growth,

2) catagen phase – between active and dormant and

3) telogen phase – resting phase as the shaft becomes detached and falls out.  this then means that hair will be treated at different intervals and phases.

Eg.  Hair on the face will initially be scheduled 3-6 weeks apart due to the beard and upper lip hair having a telogen (resting phase) of only 6-10 weeks. 

This means that you will definitely catch the next active phase in time with each session.  Eventually treatments will be scheduled according to the resting phase cycle length.

Below the neck (underarms, arms, tummy, back, bikini ect) however the hairs are primarily composed of dormant hair, with a 70% of the hair falling into the resting phase for a 12-week period.  Therefore, treatments are scheduled at intervals of 6-8weeks and eventually extended to a 12-week period.

If intervals are too short – you WILL see dramatic reduction of hair but as the months advance you could have up to a 70% regrowth

Research have shown that with 4-6 laser treatments, one can obtain a 50-90% long-term clearance rate

Brown, dark brown and black hairs are best targets with highest efficiency of clearance, where blond, white, red and grey hairs were more difficult to treat and took longerIt is important to understand that the laser treatment will need to be maintained of a period of time to get long term effects


In preparation of treatment:

No shaving, plucking waxing or using depilatories for up to 4 weeks prior to treatment

No active tanning up to 4 weeks prior to treatment

No artificial tanning products should be applied for 2 weeks before treatment

Hair should be shaved 24-48 hours before session
