Salt Room Therapy Frequently Asked Questions

What is a patch test?


Much like any chemical service, it is strongly advised that if you have never gotten extensions before that you schedule a patch test. The test involves dabbing a small amount of lash adhesive to a few eyelashes at the outer corners of each eye and allowing 24 - 48 hours to see if there is any reaction. If there are no side effect, you are ready for your lash session! In doing this, it allows you and your Stylist to monitor and check for any signs of a reaction within that time frame. With a patch test you’ll be able to identify an allergy before you’re fully exposed to the adhesive. We understand it isn’t ideal to have to come in twice, but these risk prevention methods are meant to look out for you and designed following the best industry standards and safety guidelines.




Will eyelash extensions hurt my natural lashes?


No. Your lashes have a cycle. Most people will have completely new eyelashes 60 days from now. Every eyelash will have fallen out and began to re grow. This happens in such a way that we don't even notice it. The lash extensions are only applied to existing lashes. They will not affect your eyelash growth.




Will eyelash extensions thin out my natural lashes?


Some people may think their lashes look thinner after their extensions come off. This is most likely because they have gotten used to have thick, long, glamorous lashes. In reality, if you choose to let them come off naturally, wait a couple months for the cycle to complete naturally.




How long will my full set last?


This is dependent upon your natural growth cycle and your maintenance of the lash extensions. For some people, they may only need a fill every month or even less often.

What do the different trout stream classifications mean?


Class 1: 100% Wild Trout There are over 5,000 miles of class 1 streams, each having a sustained population of wild trout that are replenished through successful natural reproduction. Because it's not needed to maintain full capacity, they are not stocked with hatchery trout. Class 2: Some Wild Trout There are over 6000 miles of class 2 streams. These waters have some natural reproduction and year to year survival carryover, but not enough to sustain a stream to it's full capacity. Stocking of Brown, Rainbow, and Brook trout is utilized to supplement mother nature. Class 3: No Wild Trout There are over 1,500 miles of class 3 streams. These streams have limited trout habitat, no natural reproduction, and little to no annual survival carryover. Without annual stocking, they would be virtually troutless.

When is the best time to fish for trout in the Wisconsin Driftless?


Trout can be caught throughout the open season, but there are definitely seasons that are better than others. March-May: Springtime is probably the best to time fish. With hungry trout ready to make up for reduced feeding in the winter, and several mayflies beginning to hatch, Spring can bring a perfect storm for dry fly action. June-August: Summertime fly fishing in Wisconsin's driftless can be tough. With clear skies and bright sun, the first challenge is staying hidden from the trout. The second challenge is the slowing down of aquatic insect activity. When no mayflies or caddis are present, casting terrestrials can be very effective and pure ecstacy when it works. September-October: Fall can be a great to time fish the driftless, but most of the trout will be focused on eating subsurface. This is the time of year that brown and brook trout spawn, so if you enjoy fishing egg patterns, this is the time to go. *Note, WATCH OUT FOR THE REDDS (trout spawing areas on the streambed). It is essential for the survival of the fish we love to be able to reproduce without being disturbed. October-December: Wintertime trout fishing can be slower than the rest of the year, but fishing presure is much lower, increasing the odds that you could have the stream all to yourself. We've found these three patterns to be the most effective in the driftless during the colder winter months.




Which airport to fly into?


While driving to the drifltess can provide beautiful scenery, sometimes because of time and distance you may be better off flying. If so, there are several municipal airports in the area, but your best bet is the La Crosse Regional Airport because you can get there from almost anywhere with a few connecting flights, and they offer car rental service right there at the terminal.




Do I need four wheel drive to get around the Wisconsin Driftless?


To access the streams, no, you will not need 4 wheel drive. However, if you are visiting in the winter months, 4 wheel drive would be essential to navigate the rolling hills if there happened to be snow on the ground.

How does ProCell Micro-Channeling work?


Our micro-channeling device creates microscopic perforations in the outermost layer of the skin which initiate a natural healing response. These perforations also function as micro-channels to deliver the ProCell Serum into the skin. The ProCell Serum is specifically formulated to trigger the collagen-producing cells in your body to go into overdrive and create permanent new healthy skin! Micro-channeling can be used as a single form of therapy or it can be combined with other treatments to further enhance the effectiveness. The micro-channels allow for deeper product penetration, increasing the effectiveness of the topically applied ProCell Serum. ProCell Therapies uses a potent growth factor serum that is derived from human bone marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC). ProCell Serum is quite effective on its own, but when combined with micro-channeling, it accelerates healing, yielding even more dramatic results. After the procedure, the skin may appear red, with mild swelling, and your skin might feel tight and sensitive to the touch. Although these symptoms may take a day or two to resolve completely, they usually diminish significantly within a few hours after treatment.




Does Microchanneling treatments hurt?


Since each individual is different; there may be minimal physical discomfort. Serenity Salt Spa offers each client the option to utilize numbing cream for each procedure they undergo. (If you will be using numbing cream, please let Staff know at the time of scheduling). There is no lingering discomfort, and we have a number of strategies we employ to minimize discomfort during treatment. Post-procedure, most people report a “tight” feeling in their skin.




What is in the serum?


ProCell’s Microchannel Delivery Serum contains bone marrow-derived growth factors in a hyaluronic acid suspension. Both of these elements are naturally-occurring in the human body. There are no human, animal, or plant cells, DNA, blood, or any other foreign substances. The product has been used safely and effectively for over a decade




My skin is irritated. Can I use moisturizer?


It is normal for treatments to result in some skin irritation, especially for clients with more sensitive skin. Always wait a minimum of 90 minutes before putting anything else on the skin. During this time, it is normal for the skin to remain pink or light red. After the 90 minutes you can apply additional moisturizer or other products. Keep in mind however, that as your skin may be more sensitive than usual for several days after the treatment, especially strong topicals should be avoided until the skin returns to normal.




How long before I can expect to see results?


Though neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen) can take several weeks, most Clients will notice some improvement in the quality and appearance of your skin within the first 24 hours. After 2-3 treatments a thicker more robust, collagen filled cellular matrix will produce more consistent and noticeable improvement. And 6 or more treatments may be recommended for scarring, laxity and wrinkles.




Are ther any contraindications?


If you have any underlying condition that significantly impairs your immune system, you will need to get a doctor’s approval before beginning any procedure, without approval; it is a good idea to avoid microchanneling. Examples include but are not limited to active radiation or chemotherapy, uncontrolled diabetes, chronic inflammatory skin disease, Accutane in the past 2 years, hemophilia or similar bleeding disorder. Also, anyone with stainless steel allergies should not do this treatment. We also discourage treatments for those who are pregnant or nursing.




Do I have to use the Microchanneling solution/aftercare serums?


Microchanneling stimulates the body to release peptides, cytokines and growth factors that induce collagen production. As you get older, the stem cells that produce these vital proteins lose efficacy and decline in population, so microchanneling alone becomes less and less effective. Because of premature aging, the Microchannel Delivery Serum and the post care Cellular Renewal Serum and Healing Accelerator Serum become more vital to improvement. Use of the ProCell aftercare products ensure the skin continuously receives potent, robust, pristine peptides, cytokines and growth factors even in between treatments. Think of diet and exercise – microchanneling without serums is like exercising without dieting. Results can be good with microchanneling only, but are significantly amplified with serums.

ION Foot Detox

 
 

Is it a person that does the massage?


Unlike a traditional massage, our lymphatic massages are done with an air compression suit (pneumatic massage). When you arrive, we slip you into large boots and a wrap that goes around your torso. We then discuss which pressure would be best for you and turn on a small machine that sends air pressure up your body, relaxing and releasing every part of you, along with stimulating the lymphatic drainage system. Our clients find this to be even more effective than a manual massage in terms of moving fat and toxins around and out of the body and describe it as feeling like 4 pairs of hands are massaging you at once.




Why don't you have a compresssion suit for the arms?


About half of our lymph nodes are in the torso and legs and they hold onto large amounts of toxins, excess hormones and water. Our suits are designed so that the fluids in your entire body are getting movement during the massage and therefore, your arms also receive these benefits.




Does it hurt? What if I don't like the amount of compression?


It does not hurt at all – in fact, it is extremely soothing and relaxing. Just like our saunas, the lymphatic massage is completely customizable. You can do a session that is light and gentle with low compression or we can turn it up to feel more like a deep tissue massage, it’s your choice!




What is Lymphatic Drainage and what are the benefits?


Lymphatic Drainage is crucial for good health and a strong immune system.
The suit massages your lymph nodes – bean shaped glands throughout the whole body. A properly functioning Lymph system will drain excess fluid from tissues, prevent the absorption of fatty acid, and subsequently transports fat to the circulatory system, all of which are necessary for the production of immune cells.

The best part of our lymphatic massages is its ability to minimize cellulite! The breaking up of fluid and increase of circulation will also decrease swelling and bloat in the body. Doing Lymphatic Massage is also essential before and after traveling by plane, to help your body’s ecosystem balance out again.
