Women who want to save time and money in purchasing and applying makeup are finding an affordable, effective alternative with Your Look Permanent Cosmetics and Eyelash Extensions.
Your Look is operated by Julia Dove at Fletcher Smith The Spa in Murrieta. Services provided to patrons include permanent makeup for eyebrows, eyeliner and lipstick, plus eyelash extensions. Procedures enhance women's beauty through micropigmentation.
"In a literal sense, it's a tattoo," said Dove, "but we're depositing pigmentation into the skin rather than tattoo parlor ink. We use organic pigment to create natural tones. We have different pigments for different ethnicities and hair color."
The pigment applied is not completely permanent, so touch-ups are required every few years. This gives the customer leeway to make adjustments in their look periodically. Meanwhile, the cost of purchasing makeup on a regular basis and applying it every day are eliminated.
Permanent makeup has been around since the days of the ancient Egyptians and came into use in the U.S. in the 1980s. Its popularity increased in recent years and improved technology has made the procedure more efficient.
"Now we have a digital machine to inject the pigment, and the technicians are better than they used to be," said Dove. "It hardly traumatizes the skin, and we use anesthetics to make the experience more comfortable."
There is no danger of allergic reaction and virtually no possibility of infection, Dove said. If the customer is concerned, a test pigmentation is performed on a small patch of skin behind the ear and is checked a day later.
The digital machine is adjustable so different amounts of pressure can be used. Obviously, work on the eyelids require less pressure than the eyebrows. Pigmentation added to the lips normally takes two or three sessions. Most sessions last about an hour.
Eyelash extensions are meticulously applied individually to each eyelash, using adhesives. These provide women with longer, thicker eyelash that last up to three weeks. Different lengths, thicknesses and curls are available.
Sessions are scheduled by appointment only. Visit the company website or call now to schedule your makeup session and enhance your beauty!
