Seeing real results and having a positive impact on the lives of my clients is why I love my job so much. I am a qualified beauty therapist with 15 years experience and a passion for electrolysis and IPL hair removal. Skin care is another important aspect of my work, and I believe in quality products and treatments that will visibly improve the health and appearance of your skin. I love nothing more than watching my clients transform and grow in confidence. I look forward to helping you with your hair removal and skin care concerns. Mary, Owner at Bare Bella Join in the fun with Bare Bella on Facebook and Instagram for health and beauty info, tips and promotions! My treatments range is extensive! I offer waxing, eyebrow shaping, eyebrow tinting, eye lash tinting, electrolysis, diathermy (red vein removal), IPL hair removal, IPL Skin Rejuvenation, Skin Needling, Fractional Mesotherapy (Collagen Induction Therapy – a more advanced form on Skin Needling or Dermal Rolling), Skinstitut Facials, Skinstitut Peels, Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion,
Waxing – I use Bubblegum white strip wax for legs and arms which is more pliable and gentle as it has titanium dioxide is it used to make it look like bubblegum! My strips are Calico, natural and more natural gentle synthetic strips = less pain for you! 🌿 Available for legs and arms at Bare Bella! Bare Bella hot wax is organic bees wax, made from natural ingredients and containing real (not acrylic like others) it doesn’t leave a sticky residue, irritation or reactions to the skin. All products are used to maximise the removal of hair from the root (other ingredients/methods just snap the hair halfway in the follicle) so your regrowth cycle is longer and the hairs grow back finer, softer and lighter.
Tinting – Eyebrows or Lashes, which includes a soothing hand massage while the lights are out when you receive a lash tint or combo of lash and brow tint ($5 cheaper for bundle). Lash tinting bring the eyes and face to life! Give it a try – you won’t be disappointed. Eyebrow tinting can make or break a “power brow” and we consult to get what you like, not everyone needs high maintenance and I believe in communication to get us both on the same page.
Electrolysis – This niche treatment, doesn’t matter how much IPL or laser I do, there will always be a market for this. Our current lifestyle situation means these days women and men are hormonal all throughout their lives. Whether it’s post laser hair that does not and never will work, blonde thick hairs, white hairs or that facial “down” that is stimulated with laser or IPL hair removal, some men’s beard lines as laser or IPL light can “scatter” out or even just those few hairs where laser is not worth it. So many reasons why this only permanent hair removal method, is something I would never give it up! Plus I love it and have been treating since 2002! Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal method. It involves the insertion of a fine wire probe into the hair follicle to the hair root. The hair root is disabled via a mild thermolysis (heat) or galvanic current whereby the hair can be released and easily slide out. The hair is removed on the day of treatment. The Electrolysis process is a few or more second per hair depending on the thickness of the hair. We may sometimes use IPL hair removal first to weaken the hair before electrolysis as most hair needs more than one treatment and if it is thick hair the IPL will minimise the amount of over all electrolysis required for permanency. We use disposable probes, a new probe per client visit. We use gloves in the treatment. We will swab the area with alcohol swabs and then proceed with the treatment. At the end of treatment a cooling witch hazel gel is applied. Our aftercare is a combination of minimal alcohol swabbing and witch hazel over a few days. We recommend a good quality mineral makeup to be used if at all. Our process is structured accordingly to the growth and type of hair.
Diathermy – Diathermy works by coagulating the red vein using a fine wire probe, by doting along the capillary. Most facial veins & red spots will disappear during treatment. Some results should be evident within 7 days after treatment. Larger veins can be reduced in size. The number of treatments you require may vary, depending upon the size of your veins and red spots. It is common to require 1-3 treatments to clear most facial veins. Some patients report feeling a slight stinging sensation during their Red Vein Removal treatment followed by some redness which usually settles in 2-4 hours.
IPL Hair Removal – Bare Bella IPL uses the very latest medical grade IPL system from Palomar. PL stands for Intense Pulse Light, the light creates heat that will “cook” the hair follicle. If the hair has the appropriate conditions, it will fall out over approximately a week.
IPL is permanent hair reduction. There are varying reasons why IPL will work or will not work. Thorough consultation is really important to make sure we and the client are on the same page. Firstly there needs to be a contrast between hair colour and skin colour in order for the hair to be treated. If skin is dark it can still be treated (as hair may be darker again) and if hair is lighter it also can still be treated (as skin may be a lot lighter), the operative word is contrast. During consultation we like to do a test patch on the area if possible to register the correct starting treatment to optimise results from the get go.
The % of hair that will die is directly related to the % of skin and hair contrast colours. This is not the only reasoning for a good result though, incorrect timing of treatments, hormones and medication will also affect the result. We have electrolysis, which is permanent hair removal that may be required in conjunction with the IPL for the desired result. Areas like bikini, underarm and legs can have a permanent result when colouring is good, as they are generally not hormonal. Hormonal areas like chin and lip can generally need continual treatment to keep hair away and electrolysis is an added option. Hormonal areas like belly and sideburns can be more permanent despite being hormonal.
We will let you know the process and home care, to optimise the result. At Bare Bella the client and practitioner must be on the same page before we proceed. Integrity and communication is definitely key to our results. Give Bare Bella a call to start your journey onto hair freedom!
