Do nail extensions ruin my own nails?
If they are put on and taken off correctly, they will not ruin your own nails. We also recommend you purchase a cuticle oil to help nourish the nail to extend the life of the extensions.

How long can you keep nail extensions on for?
You can keep extensions on indefinitely, provided you have them maintained on a regular basis.

What extensions should I have, Gel, Acrylic or fibreglass?
Your nail technician will advise you on which system she thinks will best suit you and your nails.

My nails are reasonably strong, but are never all the same length at the same time
Then why not try having them "Wrapped". This means having your own nails covered with a product which will keep them strong. The nail technician will advise you on this and you will continue the care with regular maintenance's.

I want my nails to look good but I can't have them too long
You can have the nail extensions any length and shape you like, in fact, if you haven't had them before, we would suggest that you have them on the shorter side as it's easier to get used to them like that.

Do I have to use a special nail polish and does it chip off?
You can use any nail polish, but ensure you use NON ACETONE remover, which is available at the shop. The polish doesn't chip off nail extensions, in fact most clients return for their maintenance and still have the same polish that was put on 3 weeks earlier!

What is "Maintenance" and how often do I need it?
Maintenance is carried out approximately every three weeks. It involves reshaping and re-strengthening the nail, and replacing any nails you may have broken. The technique depends on which overlay you had initially. ie Gel, fibreglass, Acrylic, etc. Without maintenance the nail becomes unbalanced and break.

I bite my nails! Can I have nail extensions?
Yes. A great deal of our client were once nail biters. If your cuticles have grown down onto your nail bed then it is advisable to have a manicure first or push your cuticles down every time you get in the bath. This will enable us to get a better nail shape and finish for you. We also suggest you have maintenance's every one to two weeks to begin with. After your nails have grown a little and your nail beds have recovered, your maintenance's will be every three weeks.

Do you use electric drills?
No. We feel that there is far too much damage being done by using drills. We do all our filing by hand, ensuring no damage is done to the natural nail plate.

Do you use MMA products?
There has been a lot of media attention recently regarding nail salons using MMA products. Briefly MMA is the liquid used in acrylic nail applications. It has been banned from being used in the States, due to health concerns, but is still available in this country. We do not use MMA. We use OPI and EZ Flow, who are highly reputable suppliers of top quality products and whose training is second to none.

What do I do if I have had nail extensions and now want them off?
Never prize or pull the nail extensions off as this will damage the natural nail plate. We offer a soak off and treatment manicure service, regardless of where you had your nails done.


Caci non surgical face lifting

How frequently and in what time intervals must treatments be provided?
Optimally, every 10-14 days to allow skin to heal. Treatments should be provided with realistic outcome in mind. Because it is a cumulative treatment, normally a package of 5 or more is suggested for retainable, tangible results.

Can this system be used with other skin care treatments?
Yes, as long as the prescribed waiting times are observed.

How many passes are recommended for the face?
Normally two, not in the same direction but in a direction that respects lymphatic drainage.

What is the average treatment time for the face?
Equipment run time is approximately 10-15 minutes. You can reach 30 minutes with a full procedure, including pretreatments protocols.
