Lash Lounge and Brow Bar 

High definition brows and long, glamorous lashes are just a “wink” away with the launch of a new Lash Lounge and Brow Bar at Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique in East Fort Lauderdale. Not your ordinary dentist’s office, Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique is South Florida first dental spa.  The new 500 square foot lash/brow bar will compliment Dr. Patty’s existing spa services menu, which features facials, massages, dermal fillers and other aesthetic treatments. Get pampered by Dr. Patty’s master brow sculptresses.  These licensed estheticians are skilled in the traditional Indian art of eyebrow threading and NovaLash artistry.  By removing an entire row of hairs, instead of one at a time, facial hair threading is a quicker, less painful method of hair removal with results that last up to three weeks. NovaLash is an award-winning, medical-grade eyelash extension system meticulously applied lash-by-lash to enhance the length and thickness of eyelashes.  Clients can choose from a broad palette of colors, textures and lengths of weightless lash extensions for customized looks that run the gamut from subtle and natural, to trendy and glamorous. “Each lash application is a work of art with an intricate finish for instant beauty,” explains Dr. April Patterson, founder of Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique. Prices start at $20 for an express brow service, $28 for a brow and lip combo and $50 for a high-definition brow makeover.  Waxing and additional a-la-carte treatments are also available.  A full set of NovaLash extensions start at $225. New clients can take advantage of the Pretty Peepers Package, featuring 50% off their first visit to the brow bar (NovaLash extensions not included).  All clients can enjoy complimentary cocktails at the new lash lounge including chardonnay and champagne while they wait.  Access to the complimentary Nespresso bar, shower and locker room is also available.
