Luanne Green and the team at Permanent Makeup Artistry and Restoration Massage work to help beauty stand the test of time by offering a range of permanent and semipermanent cosmetic procedures. They imbue faces with lasting beauty during permanent-makeup appointments, as well as airbrush-makeup sessions that apply cosmetics via a fine mist. Luanne and her team work with myriad shades, and allow clients to custom-blend their own colors for looks that are as personalized as monogrammed bathrobes. The staffers can also remove unwanted tattoos with saline or fade products, or reduce the appearance of scars with micropigmentation color camouflage or dermarolling.
The aestheticians at Skin Wellness Weight Loss and Spa improve skin tone and texture with an array of PCA Skin products. The scientifically designed line of creams, lotions, tinctures, and wizard potions tackle nearly any skin issue such as fine lines and acne, and also cater to more-complex skincare needs. For those undergoing chemotherapy, they offer specifically designed treatments. Patrons also can opt for mani-pedis, waxing sessions, eyelash extensions, or soothing massages.
Cosmetologist Patsy Baggs purchased Signature Spa & Salon in 1983, and in the decades since, she has expanded the boutique's menu of services thanks to a multitalented team of stylists, massage therapists, and cosmetologists. The staff beautifies nails with glistening polishes and nurtures hair with products from Redken and Matrix.
Featured in beauty magazines, on ABC's 20/20, and on local news programs for her work in permanent cosmetics, Dixie Medford is both the owner of Classic Beauty Concepts and a certified permanent-cosmetic educator. Along with medical-grade skincare services, Medford can implant upper layers of skin with micropigments in permanent cosmetic sessions, eliminating the need for daily makeup applications or naps in a box of crayons. As she fills in brows and adds soft hues to lips, Medford carefully selects the shapes, colors, and designs that best complement skin color and features. Medford practices traditional makeup application techniques with her micropigments, as well as camouflaging scars and adding beauty marks. Her beauty repertoire also includes light- to medium-depth chemical peels, medical microdermabrasion, and ultrasonic facials.
