WHAT IS GREEN HERB?
Lira’s green power, a powder solution, formulated with batiaga river sponge, mystiha, and minerals, not only kick starts collagen production but reduces inflammation and brightens the skin. It’s also an acid-free product that uses natural herbs to deliver incredible results without the use of harsh chemicals.
A few benefits of the key herbal ingredients:
Batiaga River Sponge also known as Spongia Officinalis, is a type of sponge used in medicine and herbalism. This fine ingredient has optimum tightening effects on lackluster and sagging skin.
Green Tea has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It helps in reducing inflammation and redness in the skin. It can also help reduce aging and acne by fighting bacterial growth on the skin.
Mastiha has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial properties. It balances oil production, giving the skin a radiant, healthy appearance. Mastiha also has a tightening effect that helps aid in fighting wrinkles and keeping the skin youthful.
HOW WE USE IT
The green herb powder is mixed into a carrier solution and is then manually massaged into the skin. It’s fast, efficient and extremely effective. The goal is to create micro channels that allow for immediate and progressive product absorption.
You can think similarly to how micro-needling creates channels through needle punctures, the herb creates these channels with natural fibers being worked into the skin instead. This makes it a non-invasive way to get similar results. The carrier mixed with our green herb during your treatment depends on desired depth and results, but is selected by your esthetician. The fibers can stay in the skin for up to 48 hours creating lasting product absorption and texture reduction!
