The staff at Pigmenta Permanent Cosmetics believes that beauty should be effortless, which is why they've curated a selection of services designed to minimize time in front of the makeup mirror. Permanent makeup artist Julia enhances eyes and lips with hypoallergenic ion-oxide pigments custom-matched to the client’s skin-tone and cosmetic preference. Instead of relying on a machine or stencils, Julia performs the tattoo-like procedure by hand, allowing her to impart a soft, natural look and even mimic the look of individual eyebrow hairs. Meanwhile, lash specialists enhance flutterers with everything from semi-permanent extensions to lash dipping—a process that allows clients to ditch their mascara for up to six weeks. Pigmenta’s staff also invites customers to stop in for quick threading sessions, where sturdy lengths of thread allow aestheticians to swiftly remove excess hair from the face and brows or quickly sew it back on if the client changes their mind.
Wholly dedicated to hair removal, the small team at Cleveland Laser Spa has performed tens of thousands of laser procedures between them. So confident are they in their proprietary LaserFast system that the clinic offers a two-year guarantee on all completed hair-removal regimens. This is because they know that any possible hair regrowth will occur in the first 24 months after the treatments, so if tufts sprout anew in that timeframe, the technicians will re-zap the region for free and plaster each follicle with a tiny eviction notice.
While many laser-hair-removal spas carry only one laser system, Albany Laser Spa keeps an arsenal. When consulting with a new client, the spa's technicians will evaluate skin and hair type to determine which of the FDA-approved systems will best suit him or her. Also, the staff is LaserFast certified to use the proprietary system that ameliorates the laser's sting with a pulse of cool air, so the technician doesn't have to blow on it.
The Premier Laser Spa of Boston trains high-energy light on all manner of undesirable skin issues. During hair-removal treatments, the spa's technicians zap offending follies with pulses of energy, shutting down the hair-growth process to leave skin as smooth as a baby who has had laser hair removal. The spa's lasers also rejuvenate skin, tightening epidermises by stimulating the production of new collagen.
