Chemical Peel

 

Beverly Hills Chemical Peel

Certified in Dermalogica and PCA Skin, Clinical Aesthetician Nancy Young is very knowledgable about treating hyper pigmentation, and melasma.  I had been sort of concerned or afraid to try chemical peels as a treatment.  After trying many products to treat hyperpigmentation, a friend recommended chemical peels, and raved about them.  With more research, I became interested in becoming an licensed skin care therapist.  I became an Skin Health Expert as to find a way to treat my own melasma.

PCA Skin chemical peels are gentle, and have no downtime.  For my first personal experience with chemical peels,  I had to feel it was safe to go with it.  Too many scary looking peel videos.  Keep in mind that aggressive therapies often worsen pigmentation, and cause aging!. Many light therapies causes inflammation, redness and sensitivity.  Those alone can cause or trigger your pigmentation.  Without making matter worse, and not want to get any harsh treatments, I initially went with a series of 5 peels, 3 weeks apart.

Affordable and low risk, I had the best experience and result that I could hope for.  With melasma, I was experiencing a rather sudden darkening of the complexion, after less than a minute in the sun.  Now my melasma is much improved, and no longer visible with a quick a dusting of facial mineral powder.

Melasma and pigmentation are quite difficult to resolve without expert skin care advice and treatment.   Effective and safe, PCA Skin chemical peels are all skin types including acne, antiaging, rosacea, sensitive, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and melasma treatment.

Vegetable & Fruit Based Organic Pigments

Welcome to the Premiere website for Los Angeles Cosmetic Tattoo & Micropigmentation!   Contact us when looking for a Permanent Makeup Artist Expert in Los Angeles.

Are you allergic to any food, fruit or vegetables?  Do you have food sensitivities?  Organic vegetable and fruit based foods may be great in your kitchen but is it right for your cosmetic tattoo?  New companies put a new spin on an ancient art that can confuse the consumer.

Should you avoid organic pigments? If you have any type of food, fruit or vegetable allergy I strongly suggest that you reconsider going to a cosmetic tattoo technician that uses organic micropigmentation pigments.  It is also not uncommon to develop food, fruit or vegetable allergies after exposure.

We only use the best permanent makeup pigments.  All made in the USA.  Contact Clinical Aesthetician and Master Permanent Makeup Artist Nancy Young at 323.680.4458. Consultations are complimentary. See the photo galleries for our three locations in Century City, Sherman Oaks, andWest Hollywood.

Feather Stroke Tattoo Eyebrows

Welcome to The Premiere Site for Permanent Makeup Los Angeles! Permanent Makeup should be Subtle, Natural and Adaptable over time. Natural Permanent Makeup lets You feel Polished and Pretty, but also True to You.

 

Feather Stroke Tattoo Eyebrows


Feather Stroke Tattoo Eyebrows

Feather Stroke Tattoo Eyebrows or 3D eyebrows are brow hair like strokes are applied in the direction of your natural eyebrow growth. This is the most natural look with very fine hair strokes. The fact is that feather stroke brows fades the fastest.  Too many cosmetic tattoo technicians are not properly informing their clients.  Feather stroke or 3D eyebrows require at minimum annual retouching.  This can be costly, and as the client you should have this information to decide what works best for you.  My clients are always properly educated about this reality.

Depending on the color and how your take care of your eyebrows, hair stroke eyebrows retouching can be as often twice a year.  If a client is does not have the time and do not wish to spend the resources, they would not likely chose this permanent makeup brow option. Many technicians here in Los Angeles are not so frank about feather stroke eyebrows.  It is unfortunate that so many permanent makeup clients out there are not properly informed.  As the premiere permanent makeup artist in LA, I educate and properly guide my clients to a decision that works best for them.

LA’s Premiere Permanent Makeup Technician

Rapid fading or color changes is usually a poor quality permanent makeup pigment.  Losing all or most of the pigment a week or two after the procedure is poor technique.  Of course, keeping your follow up retouch appointment is necessary.  Additionally, iron oxide pigments also last much longer than organic pigments. See my post Iron Oxide Vs Organic Pigments.

For up to date, quality iron oxide pigments that are long lasting – contact permanent makeup expert and licensed Clinical Aesthetician Nancy Young. For a complimentary consultation, call 323.680.4458. For more information, and see Before & After photos, see our Los Angeles Permanent Makeup page.

Permanent Cosmetic Lips Aftercare

Permanent Cosmetic Lips Aftercare

Your permanent cosmetic lips immediate results  will have an exaggerated, vibrant color.  Since the lips are quite vascular, there is more pigment fading.  This will fade at least 50% after healing.  Your lips will be puffy, and tender. Protect your procedure area with aftercare ointment to keep the area moist for comfort, best healing, and better permanent makeup pigment color retention.

After your permanent cosmetic lips procedure, avoid salt, spicy food, and alcohol.  As always, keep the post procedure area clean and protect your permanent cosmetic lips by staying out of the sun for at least a week.  At least one touch up appointment will be needed, so be sure to return for your follow up visit for gorgeous results! Keep your post-procedure care information until after your lips are completely healed. For more information, see our Los Angeles Permanent Makeup page.

Iron Oxide vs Organic Pigments
Iron Oxide vs Organic Pigments

Permanent Makeup Los Angeles

Permanent makeup – iron oxide vs organic pigments, what is the difference?  Attempting a new spin on the ancient art of tattooing, many of the new permanent makeup businesses advertise organic pigments. Be wary about the repackaging of long established tattooing knowledge with trendy buzzwords! See Smithsonian’s online article Tattoos: The Ancient and Mysterious History.

Iron Oxide vs Organic

Organic permanent makeup pigments fades faster, and can also be unstable. Organic color pigments are not always consistent from bottle to bottle.  Nor are peanuts always the exact same color. Clearly, just because a peanut is natural does not mean that it does not cause very serious allergic reactions in many people.  Many people are allergic to peanuts, pollen, plants, citrus, seaweed; the list goes on and on. For more, see Micropigmentation Organic Pigments.

Best Permanent Makeup Tattoo Pigment

About Face by Nancy Permanent Makeup only uses iron oxide permanent makeup pigments.  Iron oxide is already present in the body.  A client that is low on iron would have earlier fading as the permanent makeup iron oxide pigments will be absorbed by the body. Be wary of using organic permanent makeup pigments.  Founding Director of the American Academy of Micropigmentation and Ophthalmologist Dr. Charles Zwerling, who coined the term “micropigmentation” and co-authored the book, Micropigmentation: State of the Art states the following:

Dr. Zwerling says pigments, like iron oxide, rarely cause allergic reactions. “Iron oxide has been shown to be the safest pigment,” he says. “Anything that is vegetable based, organic, or natural is the most risky. It’s the natural products in vegetables and herbs that can cause horrible allergic reactions.” Dr. Zwerling also stated, “Iron oxide pigments are inert, meaning they don’t react metabolically. There’s just a miniscule amount of migration with iron oxide.”

5 Star Reviews Permanent Makeup Cosmetic Tattoo

Here are some of Master Permanent Makeup Artist and State Licensed Esthetician Nancy Young’s 5 star reviews. When you chose your permanent makeup specialist carefully, permanent makeup enhances your life – all day, EVERY day!

5-star reviews

“For some reason, Yelp never posted my original review to her page, so I’m writing another one. I went to Nancy for some permanent eyeliner after lots of research into different locations that offer it as a service. Suffice to say, if permanent eyeliner is what you need, go to Nancy.

She’s easy to get ahold of, prompt in her responses, and made sure I could find her location easily via text. Other than great customer service, her actual service is awesome.

The eyeliner tattoo application process hurt like hell, not going to lie (it’s on your eye, lol), but Nancy made it as comfortable as possible and did it just the way I wanted.

There was some swelling and flaking off of the product in the next few days, which Nancy warned me about, but the overall product stayed just the way it was, just not as dark as it was when freshly applied (like any tattoo, which, again, Nancy made sure I was completely aware would happen).

In the end, I was left with nice, everyday, natural-looking permanent eyeliner – exactly what I came to see Nancy for. The water-line and bottom lases faded because I wasn’t able to go back for my touch up appointment within three months because I was out of the country, but that’s not Nancy’s fault.

PM if you have any questions, since I know permanent eyeliner is kind of a huge decision.”

“I luv it, very solid & dark! My eyeliner looks good! You’re the best! I’ll refer people to you since my eyeliner came out great!! Ur really the best person I been to! Way better than Korea Town! My mom love the repair too! I need to bring her in one day.”

E.H., Business Administration

5-star reviews

“Nancy is amazing!! I received a permanent eyeliner with her and couldn’t be more pleased.  She had a yelp special and because I had gone to two other technicians before her, I didn’t want to spend a ton of money and felt I just needed a touch up.  I had gone to two other technicians who were highly reviewed on yelp and with numerous years in business however was disappointed and unsettled with the results because the eyeliner color never stayed and began fading immediately.  I read Nancy’s bio on her website and knew she had incredible experience with permanent makeup and very educational.  Nancy was very kind and patient listening to my concerns and extremely meticulous.  She took her time and was in no hurry and even stopped several times during the session to have me look at a mirror to see if I was pleased with the eyeliner. 

She is a secret gem amongst so many permanent makeup artists who seem to have incredible reviews on yelp and market themselves well.  Nancy exceeded my expectations and went above and beyond the other two technicians I saw and couldn’t be more pleased!! The ink she uses has amazing pigment that stays!  Nancy is also a perfectionist and has great bedside manners.  She is a true artist and humble.”

R.H., Fashionista

5-star reviews

“Nancy is extremely pleasant, intelligent, professional, and has an artist’s eye and a sure technician’s hand. She talked my out of getting tails on my permanent eyeliner (the right decision) and listened when I said I wanted a tapering line. She was really solicitous, checking on my pain level (pretty minimal) and switching back and forth between the eyes for relief. She has detailed aftercare instructions and answered my text questions about swimming (stay away from chlorine and salt water for a while) promptly. During the touch up session she evened out and defined the lines more completely. The second session doesn’t take as much time, but she doesn’t rush anything.

I’m delighted with my makeup. I feel this is the way I should look naturally, and love running out of the house never having to go through that morning ritual.

I recommend Nancy unconditionally!

-Debbie E., Educational Multi-Media

5-star reviews

“I had a great experience with Nancy for both eyeliner and lip color permanent makeup. She was excellent about articulating her views and perceptions as an artist (my face being the canvas!) but was always attentive and sensitive to my views and feelings as well; we had a nice give-and-take as the process went on, which is essential. I appreciated the little time-outs she had us take; that made everything flow better. I felt safe in her hands, and I love my results. All in all, I’d highly recommend her to anyone.”

-Kiara J., Legal Assistant

Permanent Makeup Eyebrows

Permanent makeup eyebrows can help in accentuating your eyes, face shape, and balance your whole face! Full, lush eyebrows are one of the signs of health and youth. And definitely play a big part in making you look your best, and even prettier. Permanent makeup eyebrows can help balance your features, fill thinning or uneven eyebrows. Eyebrows is so important that you can get away with wearing no makeup if your brows look good! To help enhance your beauty, give particular attention to your brows because they are often neglected, or over-waxed. The right shape can correct a frowning, angry, surprised or tired appearance. Neat, well shaped eyebrows open up your beautiful eyes, and face.  Well groomed eyebrows make you look fresh healthy!

Thin, sparse eyebrows that are barely noticeable do not show up in photographs, and can even make you appear sickly. Lost of eyebrow hair results from chemotherapy. Instead of having to use eyebrow makeup everyday to draw in or fill sparse or non-existant eyebrows, consider permanent makeup eyebrows. Using permanent makeup pigments designed especially for the face, you can have a natural or more vibrant eyebrow makeup application that least for years!

This will save you so much time! Permanent makeup eyebrows, like any other tattoos will gradually fade with time. When using a light color, keep this area protected with sunscreen or a hat.  A touchup might be necessary to refresh your permanent makeup eyebrows.

Permanent Makeup Eyebrow Procedure

Welcome to The Premiere Site for Permanent Makeup Los Angeles! Permanent Makeup should be Subtle, Natural and Adaptable over time. Natural Permanent Makeup lets You feel Polished and Pretty, but also True to You.

 Permanent Makeup Eyebrow Procedure

Permanent Makeup Eyebrow Procedure

The procedure takes about 1-2 hours, including the color selection and numbing process. Your permanent makeup technician will work with your to design the perfect brow to your liking. Initally, the eyebrow shape is penciled in with regular makeup. With your approval, the a brow design can help flatter you eyes and facial features. Those with wide site eyes, a round face, or a long face eyes are complimented by different brow shapes. Your face will be analyzed before to find best eyebrow shape for you. The same brows do not work for every face.

Your permanent makeup eyebrow pigment is just placed under skin, using a needle designed for facial permanent makeup. It can be mildly painful, and a good topical anesthetic will quickly resolve any sensitivity. Sensitive skin types can expect some minor skin redness and swelling. Immediately after the permanent makeup eyebrow procedure, the color will be slightly darker. Then it will soften considerably as your skin cells grow over the initial eyebrow pigmentation area. When completely healed, the final color will appear.

For modern cosmetic tattoo artistry, and long lasting, true color pigments – contact permanent makeup expert and licensed Clinical Aesthetician Nancy Young. For a complimentary consultation, call 323.680.4458. For more information, and see Before & After photos, see our Los Angeles Permanent Makeup page.

Retouching your eyebrows following your first procedure is very important.  The perfecting visit completes the color, shape, and length of your cosmetic tattoo eyebrows.  More color is added to the skin for longer lasting permanent makeup eyebrows.  There may be areas are lighter and you may want slight adjustments in the brow design such as longer or thicker. Your retouch appointment is usually included.  A touch up appointment is best after at least 4 weeks to allow for complete healing.

Color Tint Fill Eyebrows

Welcome to The Premiere Site for Permanent Makeup Los Angeles! Permanent Makeup should be Subtle, Natural and Adaptable over time. Natural Permanent Makeup lets You feel Polished and Pretty, but also True to You.

 
Color Tint Fill Eyebrows

Color Tint Fill Eyebrows

Color tint fill eyebrows is a color wash or light shading your eyebrow area. Under the eyebrow hairs, this can be very natural looking when done well, and is hardly perceptible. A shadow is created under the brow hairs, and the eyebrows simply look fuller, and is very natural looking.  This is a great way to enhance your eyebrows and is recommended, especially if you already have a lot of brow hair and want a very natural appearance. When the color selected is light, this also requires more frequent retouching.

A darker power fill look will also supplement clients that have most or some of their eyebrow hairs. Because many of my clients love their enhanced eyebrows, they chose a darker, color tint eyebrow for a long, lasting permanent makeup eyebrow color.  I always educate my clients with an frank and honest assessment of what permanent makeup can do.

LA’s Premiere Permanent Makeup Technician

Rapid fading or color changes is usually a poor quality permanent makeup pigment.  Losing all or most of the pigment a week or two after the procedure is poor technique.  Additionally, iron oxide pigments also last much longer than organic pigments. See my post Iron Oxide Vs Organic Pigments.

Eyeliner Tattoo

 

Eyeliner Micropigmentation

A talented lady, at a very well known place in the city of San Francisco did my eyeliner micropigmenation years ago.  Famous city-wide with Asian ladies who flocked to the little shop from all over the San Francisco area.  The waiting room was packed.  Even with an appointment, the wait was sometimes over 3 hours.  Even though I specified no tail, she hesitated on one eye, doing a slight tail.  She was so rushed, and was speeding on.  Not wanting to waste time to check her work.  And not even wanting to ask.  She did not even want to waste a few seconds by simply asking, tail?

Customer service or bedside manner aside, I was still happy with the results. It was uncomfortable too, because she did not let up.  She would get mad when I was uncomfortable.  I always let my clients rest, alternating eyes and checking my work. Luckily, she did not do a big mess up.  I had to keep reminding her, saying, “no tail, no tail.”  During any follow up touchups, I would remind her as she pressed on.  She did not waste a second comparing one eye to the other.  In, and out, that was it.  But I can still say it was worth it!

Los Angeles Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup is great, I wholeheartedly recommend it.  When done well, and conservatively, you will be pleased with your cosmetic tattoo for many years. Saving so much time, and not only with the daily removal and application.  What about the hours at cosmetic counters, trying to find the right shade, consistency, etc?  That alone is very tedious.  You can spend the entire afternoon testing one product after another, and still not be happy with it.

When considering permanent makeup, do your research.  Go to a reputable business.  I had no idea if the person that did my permanent makeup was gloved up or anything.  Remember that it can be dangerous to go to the wrong person.  I am very careful and precise in my work, as I know what can happen.  I do not do a fast food type of service.  For more cosmetic tattoo before & after photos, see our Los Angeles Permanent Makeup page. When you chose carefully, permanent makeup enhances your life – all day, every day!

Eyeliner Tattoo Laser Removal

However, after a number of years, I decided that I didn’t like the bottom liner.  It had to go, and I had the eyeliner tattoo laser removal done.  Crazy, but the laser removal treatments were done without metal eye shields. At the time, I wasn’t even sure that they even had those.  I was scared too.  Though, I was sure that the technician had steady hands.  Charged me an arm and a leg, too.  She treated it about 4 or 5 times for that price.  The laser worked, the eyeliner tattoo faded more each time.

Be very careful who you let work on your face! You might think it’s a good idea now, but beauty ideals and standards change. Natural-looking beauty is ALWAYS the way to go.  See our permanent makeup Before & After gallery.  Caveat emptor or let the buyer beware.  It is critical to be on the same page as your cosmetic tattoo can last for years.  Be sure to inquire about licensing, training and compare photos. For more information, see  When Permanent Makeup Goes Wrong.

Permanent Makeup Full Face

Everyone from the young to the elderly can benefit from permanent makeup full face artistry. Customized just for your face and desires, it can be a soft, natural enhancement or a more vibrant application.  Perfect solution for those that do not want to spend so much time every single day applying and reapplying faded and smeared cosmetics.

Benefits of Makeup Tattoo

Permanent makeup is also known as micropigmentation.  Cosmetic tattoo is a great benefit for active people who want to keep looking good during workouts.  And especially beneficial to those who can’t wear  cosmetics due to allergies, and skin sensitivities.  Vision impaired individuals, those who have difficulty applying their cosmetics, and others with motor impairments such as arthritis, are great candidates for permanent makeup full face.  Or it can be as simple as permanent makeup eyelash enhancement for a fuller lash look, or to improve balance and symmetry with permanent makeup eyebrows.

What is Semi-Permanent Makeup?

semi-permanent makeup

Welcome to The Premiere Site for Permanent Makeup Los Angeles! Permanent Makeup should be Subtle, Natural and Adaptable over time. Natural Permanent Makeup lets You feel Polished and Pretty, but also True to You.

 

semi permanent makeup

Semi-Permanent Makeup

The term “semi-permanent” is used in Europe and Australia.  The term “permanent makeup” is not used there because they want you to remember that all tattoos fade from UV exposure, use of body chemistry, and macrophage activity.  Also, cosmetic tattoos can fade from many anti-aging skincare products and treatments exfoliate and resurface the skin.

Unskilled technicians may not apply the pigment deep enough.  As the skin cells rejuvenate, the cosmetic tattoo can even be completely peeled away during the healing process.  It is not unheard of to have it completely gone after a week.  Unethical technicians have also been known to do this to keep clients returning.  This personally happened to me, and actually is what motivated me to become a Clinical Aesthetician and Master Permanent Makeup Artist.

 

Permanent Makeup

The term permanent makeup is used here in the States because it can not be removed with soap and water. When the cosmetic tattoo does fade, some of it may remain and it may be not completely removable. Permanent makeup does need to be refreshed.  If the initial application is lighter, and natural looking it will need to be refreshed every 2 years or so.  It may be necessary to retouch the cosmetic tattoo every 8 months or so.  A more vibrant permanent makeup application may require a retouch every 3 to 7 years.  It depends on the individual, sun exposure, etc.  Permanent makeup is long lasting, you should take great care to select the right person to apply your cosmetic tattoo permanent makeup.

 

  Your Consultation

Whichever term you want to use, semi-permanent or permanent makeup – read this UK article, “Is Semi-Permanent Makeup Worth the Pain?”  Find out if permanent makeup is right for you.  Schedule a complimentary consultation to see before and after photos, ask the right questions, and find out if cosmetic tattoo  is the right cosmetic choice for you.

You can be confident that aesthetic ability and clinical safety are met.  Contact Nancy at 323.680.4458 for a complimentary consultation.

Nancy adheres to both the State of California Board of Cosmetology sanitation and the Los Angeles County Department of Health guidelines. If a permanent makeup artist is vague about their licensure, registration, certification, and training – be wary. Also ask where their topical anesthetics and needles are manufactured. For more information, see my post: How To Chose Your Permanent Makeup Artist.

Cosmetic Tattoo Eyeliner

Cosmetic Tattoo Eyeliner

I often hear from my clients that they’ve gone to other technicians for cosmetic tattoo eyeliner, and were not getting the results they expected. In one case, a client went to two different technicians a total 7 tries, and still not getting results. Thick scabs, little choice in pigments, leaving the client with results that look like cosmetic tattoo eyeliner was done twenty years ago. After 7 treatments, and a lot of wasted time – black eyeliner should not be grey blue, with missing spots.  This is poor technique, and pigments that do not last – fading immediately after the healing period. They wished that they had come to me in the first place.  It would have saved them a lot of time and money. A client even had her eyelashes permanently damaged from the wrong technique used during eyeliner tattoo application.  Don’t let this happen to you!  These are the technicians that trained as hair stylists, they do not understand the skin and facial hair,  and eyelashes.

About Face By Nancy

And, I also hear that other technicians who may be competent, but will insist to only do what they want to do with your face. That may work for some that agree with their aesthetics. I see each client as a individual, with their own unique features.  Your cosmetic tattoo eyeliner is personalized for you individually, with your input.  I like to hear from my clients!  I want to understand what you have in mind. I ask questions, we go over photos, I apply conventional makeup for you so we can achieve the look you have in mind together. Here is an online beauty forum for those wondering whether to get permanent cosmetic tattoo eyeliner.

Beauty Professional

I advise my clients from the perspective of my formal training, personal experience as a professional fashion and photography model with extensive cosmetic training. I am also in front of the camera as an actress here in Los Angeles.  As a true beauty professional, I attend professional classes to continue my education with the latest advancements, and discoveries in the beauty world.  Everything is related to my career choice, a dedicated beauty professional.  Read over my permanent makeup posts for information most cosmetic tattoo technicians don’t even know.  I like to keep my clients informed about their choices, options, treatments and home care.

Melasma – Don’t You Hate It

Melasma – Don’t You Hate It

I love to do permanent makeup, however the one skin care issue that I am all too familiar with is melasma.  Los Angeles has a diverse population, melasma is fairly common in Asian and Hispanic populations.  Melasma also occurs with Black and Caucasian skin.  Millions of women and some men suffer from this very difficult to treat skin condition.  Even cosmetic lasers are not effective, and can even trigger melasma – especially if you have a medium to dark complexion.

I’ve had melasma about 8 years, and I’ve really tried practically every product out there.  From drug store brands like Porcelana, to prescription Obagi, to Vivite, then Lumixyl to Clinque Dark Spot Corrector, the list goes on and on and on.

 

What Is Melasma?

Melasma is overproducing, sensitized pigment cells that cause patchy pigmentation areas primarily on the cheeks, forehead and upper lip.  You must wear sunscreen vigilantly, and be very careful in dealing with it because many things can make it even worse.  Here a list, it’s a long one – stress, hormones, heat, not eating or sleeping regularly, sun exposure, your home lighting, and even the light emitting from your laptop or computer.

 

Fairest of All

When you have great skin, you can take it for granted.  Healthy, beautiful skin is one of the best things your parents gave you, take care of it. A fair complexion is very near and dear to many people, especially those that are from or around Asia.  A tanned complexion especially for a woman is a huge no no.  Even the men desire and seek the light skin all of the celebrities have.  Once, I was on the phone to an IT support person in the Philippines, and we started a detailed discussion on how to brighten and lighten the skin.  As we waited for my computer to reboot, we exchanged ideas on how to get results.  The IT guy, and yes he was a guy – suggested glutathione oral supplements, and so I even purchased those and tried that too.

 

Cultural Preferences

While there are many others in Europe and the United States do prefer a tanned look as it is slenderizing, has an athletic appearance, etc.  In contrast to the view above, a tan is also a status symbol, as in being able to vacation abroad, or summer at the resort and therefore having the leisure time, and resources to do so.  Melasma, however is a lot more complicated than a tan.  Melasma, also known as the mask of pregnancy is an uneven complexion often triggered by hormones.

Adversity to tanned skin is because it is seen as not only aging, but originates from the view that an untanned complexion means not having to do outdoor manual labor in the crop fields, etc.  I write about this, not in agreement but to convey the historical reasons for this very strong preference, and how it is still very prevalent today. Personally, with dark hair, I just think the contrast looks better on me.  Effective melasma treatment requires your commitment. When you’re ready to do this the right way, contact Clinical Aesthetician Nancy Young at 323.680.4458.

Permanent Makeup Discounts

Permanent Makeup is available around the world, and popular here in Los Angeles.  Micropigmentation or cosmetic tattooing services are also discounted on coupon sites, where basically the new businesses secure clients and also farm for student practice models.  Everyone loves a bargain.  Always keep in mind that permanent makeup is applied with needles, and the service is not unlike the risks for any other needle or open skin procedure.  Risks include blood borne pathogens, including Hep B and HIV.  There is a good reason why the Los Angeles Health Department make inspections, and requires professional permanent makeup and tattoo artists have an annual permit and registration.

Are these professionals that actually know what looks good on you, that can advise you with their experience? More then just the technical aspect, do they have the aesthetic ability to give you a long lasting, highly regarded look that you will enjoy for many years?   As one of the most skilled and trained beauty professionals in this industry, Aethetician Nancy Young has seasonal promotions, and Internet Specials.  With loyal clients, our best advertising is our results and personal referrals.  See our permanent makeup Before & After gallery.  Caveat emptor or let the buyer beware. Think twice before letting just anyone tattoo your face! For more information, see  When Permanent Makeup Goes Wrong.  It is critical to inquire about licensing, training and compare photos.

I am a state licensed skin care specialist, with hundreds of educational training hours.  I’ve also had the additional training for permanent makeup.  Cosmetologists are not skin care specialists, they only have about 6 to 10 hours of skincare training. Or in other words, a cosmetologist trained to be a hair dresser.  Few people are truly suited for the permanent makeup profession.  In addition to artistry, permanent makeup technicians require excellent eye sight, stable hand and eye coordination, and a long list of other requirements. See my post: How To Chose Your Permanent Makeup Artist.

State Licensed Beauty Professional

Many permanent makeup artists today are still entering into the business without any formal training nor state licenses. This is often when you will see a permanent makeup business where it is advertised that the business specializes in and only does permanent makeup. The reality is that they are unable to do ANY service in a beauty salon because they have not have met the educational requirements for beauty professional licensing, nor have they received formal disinfection and sanitation training according to state boards. You definitely should ask questions when you allow someone to use a needle on you. Read more about Permanent Makeup Then & Now.

State board licensed Esthetician and Micropigmentation Expert Nancy Young is very knowledgeable about permanent makeup and skincare.

All shades of the more popular lip sticks are available and may be worked on in a short time at little inconvenience.

Cleopatra is is believed to have had permanent makeup.

Permanent Makeup & Micropigmentation

Permanent Makeup is technically micropigmentation or in other words, a cosmetic tattoo. An ancient Asian and Egyptian beautification practice, permanent makeup has gained popularity around the world. Tattooing for medical reasons such as scaring or vitiligo are essentially the same procedure, this is sometimes the last resort when no other solution exists.

Early Days of Permanent Makeup

Tattooing is an ancient art, the oldest tattoo in the world is 5300 years old. Carbon dated from the Bronze Age, Otzi the Iceman was discovered frozen in a glacier in 1991. And his body was covered with tattoos!

Permanent makeup has been a celebrity secret since as least the 1930’s. See Lip Tattooing Is The Latest Fad (January 1933). Permanent makeup or cosmetic tattoos was not well-known in the United States until early 80’s. During the mid-nineties, a California woman started flying all over the country promoting this new service. A popular industry was born, and as it grew, many people from various backgrounds got into this business. Many are tattoo artists that came up the traditional ways – under an apprenticeship of a senior tattoo artist and or learn tattooing at home.

Requirements for Permanent Makeup Technicians

Many permanent makeup artists today are still entering into the business without any formal training nor state licenses. This is often when you will see a permanent makeup business where it is advertised that the business specializes in and only does permanent makeup. The reality is that they are unable to do ANY service in a beauty salon because they have not have met the educational requirements for beauty professional licensing, nor have they received formal disinfection and sanitation training according to state boards. You definitely should ask questions when you allow someone to use a needle on you. See my post: How To Chose Your Permanent Makeup Artist.

Municipal Regulations & Restrictions

Some cities have municipal bans and zoning restrictions on tattoo shops. In the late eighties, a California beauty professional appealed the regulation, and the ban was updated to exempt aestheticians, cosmetologists, electrologists, and physicians. As an aesthetician, my background includes the study of psychofigurism – the study of the facial features, facial symmetry, and facial bone structure. Along with artistic ability, I customize brows, eyes and lips for a client’s face and individuality.

Licensed Beauty Professional

Additionally, application service of false eye lashes, and lash extensions are not allowed unless they are licensed Aestheticians or Cosmetologists in California. As a state licensed beauty professional, I’ve had hundreds of classroom hours on disinfection, sanitation, eyebrow shaping, lash extensions, and permanent makeup.

how to chose your permanent makeup artist

How To Chose Your Permanent Makeup Artist

Chose your permanent makeup tattoo artist based on their experience, talent, training, artistry and knowledge of color. Before you select your cosmetic tattoo artist, make sure that you are selecting the services of a qualified technician that is highly skilled and trained. See our Permanent Makeup Before & After Photos. Important questions to ask include:

  • Are they registered with the Los Angeles Health Department per California state law?
  • Do they adhere to Health Department protocols?

  • Do they have close access to soap & running hot water?
  • How did they get their training?
  • How many procedures have they done?
  • Do they have a portfolio of clients they themselves have done?
  • Do they pencil you in first?
  • Does your tech have both technical and artistic skills?
  • Do you agree with their aesthetic ability?
  • Do you like their own permanent makeup?

  • What kind of aftercare do they give you?
  • Do they answer all of your questions?
  • Are they easy to reach if needed?

Permanent Makeup Consultations

Permanent Makeup Eyelash Enhancement

Client in her early twenties came in for a permanent makeup consultation. She wanted a natural, no makeup look. Together we were able to select the perfect shade for her permanent makeup eyelash enhancement. This cooper brown permanent makeup pigment shade is perfect for her. All clients with lighter complexions, and those with blond or red hair are particularly careful about choosing permanent makeup or permanent makeup eyelash enhancement pigment shades. Keeping a warm tone that matched her eyelashes, it is the perfect look that she requested. Such a pretty color and so natural looking, this is photo is one of our most popular.

Upper Lip Liner for Fuller, Shapely Lips

Permanent Makeup Lip Liner

Client in her early 30’s came in for permanent makeup lip liner consultation.  She wanted natural looking lip liner that would match the color and go with the shape of her own lips.  Looking for fuller, more shapely lips, she used lip pencils.  Her lip pencil was used and sharpened down to short stumps! Refreshing and redrawing the shapes many times a day to get the look that she wanted.  Finally, she decided to go for permanent makeup lip liner.  Together we chose a shade for her.

The client was thrilled, and said it was perfect!  The permanent makeup lip liner color was an exact match to her natural lips. The pigment colors are custom blended to your very own natural color palette. With her big, dark, expressive eyes, the permanent makeup lip liner balanced out her entire face, and chin area. No more worries about thin upper lips that disappears when smiling. She definitely looked like herself, only better!

is permanent makeup safe

Is Permanent Makeup Safe?

Permanent makeup is absolutely safe when applied by a qualified technician.  Never go to a unregistered home based permanent makeup / tattoo artist.  With any needle procedure, there is risk of infection and blood borne pathogens.  See my post How To Chose Your Permanent Makeup Artist.

Cosmetic Micropigmentation

Permanent makeup, also know as Cosmetic Micropigmentation  is usually done with iron oxide pigments which are nontoxic and rarely cause any allergic reactions. Iron oxide have been used for hundreds of years. Iron oxide pigments do not react to tissue, and are the longest lasting.

Modern permanent makeup procedures done correctly cause no trauma to the skin and heal really fast. One of my clients did lose her eyelashes permanently due to the improper technique of another Los Angeles permanent makeup technician. So, definitely do your homework. Contact Nancy at 323.680.4458 for a complimentary consultation. Visit one of our three Los Angeles area treatment rooms. See the photo galleries for Century CitySherman Oaks, and West Hollywood.

Los Angeles Permanent Makeup

Women who have permanent makeup well, will tell you that the procedure is very tolerable and well worth any minimal discomfort.  Swelling and discomfort is normal for the first few days after the procedure.

Touch ups are necessary over the years because the permanent makeup will fade due to factors like the sun, chlorine and salt water, tanning beds. Also avoid applying acidic, glycolic, and retinol skincare products on the permanent makeup area. Let your skin care specialist know about your permanent makeup before any skin treatments.

Inform your permanent makeup technician of any allergies.  Avoid alcohol, excessive salt intake, and blood thinning medication.  If you are under prescription medication, consult your physician before getting the permanent makeup. For additional permanent makeup information, see our Los Angeles Permanent Makeup page.

After A Chemical Peel

after a chemical peel

after a chemical peel

 

After A Chemical Peel
After a chemical peel, it is important to protect your skin from the sun to extend the results. Keep it healthy and avoid damaging your skin again.

1. Stay Out of the Sun: The best way to maintain results after a chemical peel is to stay out of the sun and use sunscreen daily. The sun accounts for up to 70% of extrinsic aging.

2. Not Everyone will Peel: Depending on the condition of your skin, you may or may not peel. Peeling is a side effect. If you’ve had medical grade exfoliation or recent peels, you may not peel because it is not necessary. Some clients peel a lot, and some do not peel at all. Cellular improvements are still happening because of the treatment serums applied while the pores are more open. For more exfoliation and peeling, a retinoid serum can be added during the peel treatment.

3. Daily Care is Essential: What you do every day is important. To keep your skin healthy, daily sunscreen, antioxidants and a moisturizer are essential. Antioxidants repair damage and protect skin from UV damage. Moisturizers keep skin hydrated. Also, including antioxidants in a clean, healthy diet heals from the inside out.

4. Use a Retinoid Product: The gold standard in skincare, using a retinoid reinforces chemical peel results. Keeping the skin in a repair cycle, by creating new collagen and exfoliating the skin’s surface. However, avoid using excessively as prescription strength Retin A can cause dryness, flaking, redness and sensitivity. Always hydrate, moisturize, and protect with sunscreen when using a retinoid.

4. Regular Treatments: Refresher chemical peel treatments will help maintain the longevity of healthier skin.

With exceptional results, PCA Skin is distributed in 70 countries. And is the largest manufacturer of aesthetic, medical-grade chemical peels in the USA. For more information, see Chemical Peels & Skincare Los Angeles.  One of the best trained skin health therapists in Los Angeles, contact Clinical Aesthetician Nancy Young at 323.680.4458.

In the early days of cosmetic tattooing, the looks were dramatic and exaggerated as that was the style at the time. Everyone knows someone that has micropigmentation, also know as permanent makeup. When done well, permanent makeup enhances facial features and is well worth the cost.  Rather than spending hours at the makeup counters, and wasting money on wrong colors, etc.  You can wake up looking beautiful everyday.

Permanent makeup eyebrows or eyeliner can have a blueish tint, as black pigments are really many shades of dark blue. Asians commonly have naturally yellow skin pigment. As the black permanent makeup fades, it can also look blue when the micro pigment is seen from underneath the skin. It is not difficult to correct blue brows or eyeliner. In fact, many eyebrows would benefit from a color update to a dark brown. For a different design or shape corrections, at least two sessions are necessary. A beauty book, Asian Faces: The Essential Beauty & Makeup Guide for Asian Women is filled with full color photographs. It may be a good place to inspire your permanent makeup brow tattoo, since Asia where cosmetic tattooing began.

Nowadays, Asian cosmetic tattoo clients typically like very natural, light-handed permanent makeup. I hear from my clients that the pigments used by many permanent makeup technicians are fading drastically or turning grey color immediately after healing. There have been many advancements in micropigmentation, and so many color options available today.

Makeup Tattoo Aftercare

Welcome to the Premiere Site on the Internet for Cosmetic Tattoo Permanent Makeup!  It is important to have proper makeup tattoo aftercare to prevent infections, and good retention of pigment color.  Your permanent makeup artist completed 50% of the procedure.  Now it is up to you to complete the proper aftercare.

 

Keep Clean and Cool

Keeping the area clean after the procedure is important.  Use clean, new, sterile everything.  Stay cool to avoid excess sweating.  No salt solutions such as saline as it will fade the cosmetic tattoo.  If you apply ice, use for about 5 minutes on and off, and keep the ice cubes in a new sandwich baggie.  Do not apply any makeup for at least 7 days after the procedure.  It is best to purchase new mascara and makeup to prevent infections.

Avoid touching the area, and always wash your hands before touching your face.  Keep out of the sun, pool and hot spa.  When applying aftercare products, use a cotton swab.  Of course, do not pick the procedure area.  Do not scrub or wash the procedure area, avoid cleansers, makeup remover, and soap.

Why Does Permanent Makeup Fade?

What Causes Permanent Makeup To Fade

Welcome to The Premiere Site for Permanent Makeup Los Angeles! Permanent Makeup should be Subtle, Natural and Adaptable over time. Natural Permanent Makeup lets You feel Polished and Pretty, but also True to You.

 

Why Does Permanent Makeup Fade

Permanent Makeup

Expect the initial permanent makeup procedure to be very vibrant. Permanent makeup pigments are tattooed under the first layer of your skin. Initially, the pigments are also in and on the top layer of skin. As your skin heals, the dead skin cells at the top naturally slough off. The remaining pigment is seen from below the surface of your skin. This is why cosmetic tattoo makeup is more natural looking than conventional makeup.

Micropigmention: Beautiful 24/7

Permanent makeup is popular because topical cosmetics smear, run, and melt. Conventional makeup is on the surface of your skin.  Keep in mind that pigment makeup will not be as bright as topical makeup. If you are looking for a vivid permanent makeup look, it may require more frequent refreshing.  Of course, you can always change up your look by using topical makeup over your cosmetic tattoo. Also, organic pigments do not last as long as iron oxide, see my post Iron Oxide vs Organic Pigments

Permanent Makeup Fade

Why does permanent makeup fade?  Frequent use of anti-aging ingredients encourages new skin to reveal itself. To keep your permanent makeup looking good for a long time, be careful using anti-aging skincare.  Avoid Retin A, AHAs, and BHAs around the procedure area.

Professional skin treatments such as chemical peels, and microdermabasion exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells, and will cause permanent makeup fade.  Do let your Aesthetician know that you have permanent makeup. To prevent permanent fade, your skin health professional will work around the permanent makeup area.

Sun exposure, and chlorine in pools also cause permanent makeup fade. Unlike body tattoos, the face is always exposed to the sun. Always use sunscreen to protect the longevity of your cosmetic tattoo.

Cosmetic Tattoo Permanent Makeup

Cosmetic tattoos should be refreshed periodically.  Schedule an appointment to refresh your permanent makeup every year or two, especially when using light, natural, earthy colors. For more information, contact Clinical Aesthetician and Master Permanent Makeup Artist Nancy Young. Call 323.680.4458 for a complimentary permanent makeup consultation.

Are Cosmetic Tattoo Pigments Safe
Are Cosmetic Tattoo Pigments Safe?

 

Iron Oxide Micropigmentation Pigments

The colors used in cosmetic tattoo (or permanent makeup) are technically, sterile pigments and they are regulated by the FDA. Cosmetic tattoo makeup pigments are actually safer than normal tattoo pigments because the molecules are larger.  In fact, iron oxide pigments have been used in tattoo inks safely for centuries.  There have been no lawsuits filed with iron oxide based pigments, unlike so-called “vegetable dyes” or synthetic organic pigments. See my other post Iron Oxide vs Organic Pigments to learn more about cosmetic tattoo pigments.

 

Cosmetic Tattoo Equipment

Also, the permanent makeup equipment used for the face, on the lips, and by the eyes are more gentle than the jackhammer coil machine at your local biker tattoo shop.  A topical anesthetic is used before, and during the permanent makeup application.

Which Skincare Treatment Is Right For Me?

los angeles skincare

 

Skincare Treatments

With so many types of skincare treatments out there, consumers can feel overwhelmed.   Here are some common therapies:

Chemical Peel

An exfoliation process, very effective in treating a large range of skincare concerns such as aging, sun damage, acne, mild scarring, improving overall skin brightness and evening skin tone. Peels can be light, moderate or deep. Light peels require no down time from work or normal activities. Moderate peels may require a day or two of down time, and deep peels can require a week or more to allow the skin to fully heal. Aestheticians who are not working in a medical setting perform light to moderate peels only. Deep peels are performed by a physican, or under a physician’s supervision, for your safety.

 

Exfoliation

The removal of dead skin cells manually (scrubbing, brushing, or using a system such as microdermabrasion), with a chemical peel (a product that causes dead skin cells to shed) or with an enzymatic product that digests dead skin cells. 

 

Extraction

This is the process of deep cleansing the pores, either manually (using gloved hands and cotton or tissue around the fingers, with gentle pressure to remove the impacted pore) or using a metal extraction implement designed to clear blocked pores. This can also include the use of a lancet (a small sharp blade to lift the dead cells of the skin prior to extraction).

 

Facial

A facial is the most popular treatment performed by aestheticians. It is a good way for your skincare therapist to get a good understanding of your skin prior to suggesting more aggressive treatments. A facial generally includes makeup removal and skin cleansing, exfoliation by mechanical, enzymatic or chemical means, steaming, extractions, facial massage, a treatment mask, serum/moisturizer and sun screen. For most people, facials can be scheduled every four weeks, although your therapist may recommend a different schedule based on your individual needs.

 

Microdermabrasion

The process of resurfacing the skin using a machine that sands the skin’s epidermal (outer) layer, using either a wand tipped with crushed diamonds, or a spray of special crystals which are then suctioned back up along with the dead skin cells. It can be very helpful in improving skin texture, fine lines and the effectiveness of home care product penetration.

Why should I see a Skin Specialist?

aesthetician los angeles

Did you know that your complexion is at the top of the list of items people consider when rating for attractiveness?

Skin Specialist

 

Beautiful, Healthy Skin

Why should I see a Skin Specialist?  Skin is the largest organ of the body for filtering and elimination.  If your skin’s beauty and health is a priority for you, you should consider seeing a Skin Specialist on a regular basis.  A variety of treatments and products are used to protect skin from environmental hazards, a dull, uneven skin tone, and combat fine lines, and wrinkles. Skin Specialists are also skilled in managing conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and dry skin. Additionally, skincare treatments are wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating, reducing stress levels. If smooth, healthy skin is your goal, visiting a Skin Specialist can benefit you.  Contact Clinical Aesthetician Nancy Young to explore your skincare options.

Skin Specialist

Dermatology is a branch of the medical profession, practiced by licensed physicians who specialize in disorders of the skin, such as skin cancers. Aesthetic practice specifically excludes diagnosis, prescription, or any other service, procedure, or therapy that requires a medical license. If you’re being treated by a dermatologist, your Skin Specialist can provide complementary and support therapies. In addition, Skin Specialists are trained to recognize early signs of many medical conditions affecting the skin, and will refer you to a dermatologist.

 

Skin Specialist

 

Your Consultation

It is good idea to schedule a consultation prior to your first treatment, especially if you are new to aesthetic treatments. This gives you and your Skin Specialist a chance to discuss your goals and expectations for the first visit, and your longer term goals for your skin. During a consultation, your Skin Specialist will go over a client consultation form, and will likely do a cleansing of the skin followed by a detailed skin analysis. This will give your skincare therapist the information she/he needs to create an individualized treatment plan. Professional treatments and recommendations for home-care products will also be prescribed.

Skincare at Home

To maintain the visible improvement after a professional skincare treatment depends on your own consistent and correct home care. Your Skin Specialist is trained to select the skincare products and ingredients that will most benefit your skin. You will be advised on how to maintain your results between visits. Like medical or dental care, following the right daily regimen at home is essential.

Melasma Treatment

melasma los angeles

 

melasma treatment

 

Melasma is Challenging

If you have melasma, it is not necessary for me to detail why melasma treatment is at the top of a priority list of things you want to change. Prior to being a Clinical Aesthetician,  I was dealing with my own melasma for a number of years.  The experience motivated me to know everything I could about  skin.  I changed careers to become a skincare therapist. Read my earlier post, Melasma – Don’t You Hate It.

Melasma treatment is mysterious and elusive.  I was consulting with dermatologists, and purchasing expensive skin systems.  And researching everything I could find on hyperpigmentation, skin lightening, and melasma.  I tried brightening facials, and skin treatments from estheticians, many that that did not know what they were doing. I used topical skincare medication, and purchased vitamin supplements.  Going to department stores, and drugstores to find skincare solutions.  Online, I ordered lightening creams manufactured in different countries with questionable ingredients.  I tried pearl cream from Asia, lightening creams from the Philippines, and snail cream from Latin America.

 

Commitment to Treatment Protocol

To resolve pigmentation issues, you must be 100% dedicated.  Many clients want to resolve pigmentation and melasma.  However, the majority do not want to change their daily habits. If you are not ready to commit fully to the process, results will not last.  Doing what you’re doing, led to these issues.  Unfortunately, and without a doubt – the pigmentation will return.  Without your full cooperation, it is be impossible to maintain results.

Stay out of the sun, and wear sunscreen all the time.   Good sunscreen is critical.  Physical sunscreen is better than a chemical sunscreen. Or you can use both, like I do.  Any kind of light, even the lighting in your home affects melasma.

 

Melasma Treatment

Melasma is easily one of the most difficult conditions for a skincare therapist to treat. As a skin health professional, I only use only professional and medical grade skincare. I had a series of gentle medical grade chemical peels, 3 weeks apart.  With a strict skincare routine, and occasionally light chemical peels, I am able to maintain the good results.

Keep in mind that aggressive light therapies, and topical treatments can be aging. They can even trigger the start pigmentation problems.  Dermalogica Certified Specialist and certified in PCA Skin chemical peel, I am one of the best trained skincare therapists in Los Angeles.   Contact Clinical Aesthetician Nancy Young at 323.680.4458.

Micropigmentation FAQ

Permanent-Makeup Los Angeles

Welcome to The Premiere Site for Permanent Makeup Los Angeles! Permanent Makeup should be Subtle, Natural and Adaptable over time. Natural Permanent Makeup lets You feel Polished and Pretty, but also True to You.

 

micropigmentation

What is Micropigmentation?

Most micropigmentation pigments, or micro pigments, are made from a dry, powdery and insoluble substance that is usually pulverized. About Face by Nancy Permanent Makeup selects the finest pigments made in the USA.  Specially formulated with iron oxide, an inert ingredient safe for the skin. Micropigments made from organic ingredients, such as vegetables, have a high risk of carrying bacteria and causing allergic reactions. Because the color is implanted just underneath the dermis layer of the skin, the resulting shade is soft and muted. The most common procedures for permanent makeup are eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip liner.  Do not use body pigments on the face as this results in the exaggerated appearance that some early adopters have from the beginning, early days of makeup tattoo decades ago.

How Permanent is Permanent Makeup?

The duration of permanent makeup or semi-permanent makeup depends on the depth of needle penetration during the procedure. Skin type and after-care are determining factors in achieving lasting results. Follow all instructions carefully so that their makeup tattoo color can last several years. As you become accustomed to your new permanent makeup it’s not uncommon to want more. You will want to freshen up your cosmetic tattoo permanent makeup application every couple of years.

How Safe is Micropigmentation?

The art of tattooing has been practiced for centuries. The safest and most stable makeup tattoo used on the face are made of iron oxide and carbon based ingredients. See my post, Are Cosmetic Tattoo Pigments Safe? These compounds are naturally present in the human body. Strict sanitation and sterilization procedures are enforced to reduce the possibility of infection or contamination, but you also have the responsibility of keeping the treated area clean while it’s healing. Advise your doctor if you plan to undergo any other procedures, such as laser treatments, Botox, dermabrasion, chemical peels, etc.

Are There Risks with Makeup Tattoo?

As with any procedure where topical ointments or anesthetics are used, risks may occur if there is an allergy to certain ingredients. Most people would know if there has been any previous reaction during routine dental work. A medical history form is obtained during the permanent makeup consultation, so be sure to discuss any known allergies or questions ahead of time.  The biggest risk is ending up with a look that you don’t like.  Make sure to select your beauty professional carefully!

Does Micropigmenation Mix with Other Procedures?

Inform your doctor if you have or plan to get micropigmentation or permanent makeup. With their doctor’s advice, you can determine what kind of precautions to take or what protection is needed. Sometimes laser treatments turn pigment to a dark or black color. Collagen and pigments do not mix well either, so make sure to ask a dermatologist or physician to explain the possibility of reactions to Botox or collagen. The physician may suggest having these types of procedures before getting any permanent makeup done.  Reports have appeared of people having undergone an MRI and experiencing a burning pain in the area where micropigmentation were implanted. The iron oxides in the pigment react to the magnetic fields and radio waves used in an MRI, causing this pain. You should inform your doctor of any cosmetic tattoo permanent makeup prior to having an MRI.

Is There Pain or Swelling?

Some cosmetic tattoo permanent makeup clients may experience some swelling depending on their skin’s sensitivity. However, most applications look great immediately after the procedure! I use a highly effective analgesic ointment. I also use healing, and soothing gels, protective eye drops and other anti-inflammatory products.

Does Cosmetic Tattoo Fade?

Some permanent makeup fading will occur, which is normal. micropigmentation technicians should deposit the pigment deep enough to prevent color from scabbing.  Your own diligent after-care will also lock in color. Cosmetic tattoo permanent makeup applied correctly by technicians who strive to perfect their skills will result in better color retention and fewer touch-ups.

What to Expect for Healing?

Avoid steamy areas, such as spas or hot tubs, as well as contact with chlorine. Do not rub, pick, or apply additional cosmetics to the treated area until it is completely healed. The normal recovery time is 5 to 10 days.

How to Select the Best Makeup Tattoo Artist?

The application of micropigmentation makeup has become an increasingly popular procedure for women in the United States. With the increase in popularity of permanent cosmetic makeup procedures, many simply take 2 or 5 day classes.   Immediately, they start selling their trade on sites such as Groupon and other discount sites.  Untrained or unlicensed practitioners have jumped on the bandwagon.  The micropigmentation technician must have aesthetic and artistic ability.  The best choice is a licensed beauty professional that is also a certified micropigmentation technician.

What Training Does A Certified Technician Have?

Certified permanent makeup technicians are required to successfully complete a series of courses that include training on color theory and sanitization. Another standard requirement is experience in hands-on clinics. A micropigmentation technician who seeks legitimate training should choose an accredited, post-secondary school with credentialed instructors.

Can Micropigmentation Cause Infections?

Infections usually occur in skin that has a tendency to break out easily, or when not following the permanent makeup after-care instructions. For those that have skin that is sensitive or blisters easily, you must receive preparatory treatment well ahead of time. Start prescribed medication or preventative care a few days before the permanent makeup procedure. If an infection or outbreak occurs afterward, contact your doctor for a prescription or for information on available over-the-counter products. Immediately take care of any irritations or infections to promote faster healing, which will also protect the cosmetic tattoo permanent makeup color.

Why Do Some People Not Want Bottom Eyeliner?

They think the “uplift” they get from the top eyeliner is enough. A lot of times it isn’t. A soft permanent makeup bottom liner will further enhance the eyes and eyelashes.

What Makes A Face Beautiful?

face beautiful

face beautiful

 

What Makes A Face Beautiful?

A lot of research has been done to determine exactly what makes a face beautiful.  Good facial symmetry and skin condition indicates good genes and health.  When we judge a face beautiful, we are actually assessing the health and vitality of the person.  The University of Regensbury in Germany incorporated the responses of hundreds of people to generate the above photo with a morphing program.

Your Complexion

What makes a face beautiful?  According to Psychology Today, the HUE of your complexion is the most significant factor in determining what makes a face beautiful. Isn’t that incredible?  Even more important than facial shape or symmetry, your complexion, the glow of your complexion is the #1 factor.   Somehow, this is instinctively obvious to me.  See all of my certifications, as one of the best trained Clinical Aestheticians in Los Angeles, it is a priority of mine to know the ins and outs of keeping a complexion looking fantastic.

Your Skin

Your skin is alive, it changes constantly depending on your diet, exercise, habits, sleeping hours, and stress levels.  It is the largest organ of your body, and deserves to be treated with some major respect!  Many people spend a majority of their beauty budget on hair care, and expensive hair coloring, products, and treatments.  Though your hair is an extension of the skin, unlike your skin, the hair is are already dead.

Skin is your first line of defense against outside invaders such as bacteria.  Your skin keeps your skeletal frame and internal organs together and hydrated.  Studies also show that skin that is subject to a lot of sun exposure responds differently to touch.  For a lovely complexion and a beautiful face, I can not stress enough to protect your skin from damaging UV.

Facial Features

In judging characteristics of what makes a face beautiful,  in order of importance, are

  • Eyes
  • Brow
  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Nose
  • Chin and Jawline
  • Neck

Enhance Your Facial Features

For pretty facial features, you can chose to enhance or highlight them with permanent makeup.  A tint of color that is shown through the skin, it is very naturally looking when applied with skill and precision.  After your skin heals from a permanent makeup procedure, it will shed the top layer of skin. The results are even more natural looking than conventional topical makeup which sits on top of your skin.  What would you rather have,  natural beauty or make up beauty?  Each has it’s time and place.

You can have a more vibrant permanent makeup service or add topical cosmetics on special occasions.  By highlighting your features with permanent makeup, together we can get a personalized beauty that is your own. For more information, see our Los Angeles Permanent Makeup page. You can be confident that aesthetic ability and clinical safety are met.  Contact Nancy at 323.680.4458 for a complimentary consultation.

What Is Rosacea?

PCA Skin Chemical Peel

After 2 Facials & 2 Chemical Peels

 

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic skin disease that causes varying degrees of redness and swelling, primarily on the face, but also at times on the scalp, neck, ears, chest, and back. It is considered a vascular disorder (a disorder of the blood vessels).

The condition can develop over a long period of time and is more common in adults, particularly those with fair skin. More women get it than men, though in men the condition is often more pronounced. Severe, untreated rosacea can lead to a disfigurement of the nose called rhinophyma.

 

Four Grades of Rosacea

  • Grade 1: Mostly redness.
  • Grade 2: Pimples and other blemishes.
  • Grade 3: Edemas (swelling due to fluid retention) w/ inflammatory bumps on the nose.
  • Grade 4: Symptoms affecting the eyes.

No one knows the cause of rosacea, but it is thought to run in families and can be aggravated by environmental factors and diet. Although rosacea can be accompanied by pustules, it is not acne. Researchers believe rosacea might be caused by several things: abnormal function of the blood vessels, sun damage, and an abnormal inflammatory reaction.

People with rosacea often learn that certain things trigger their flare-ups. It is believed that fluctuations in temperature (especially extreme heat or cold) is a common trigger. Spicy foods and alcohol consumption can also cause flare-ups.

 

Rosacea Treatment

The key to rosacea treatment is to catch it early. It may start with cheeks that easily flushes red. Reducing skin temperature and calming the skin is usually the first objective. Once inflammation is under control, other treatments follow. There are many treatments, including topical agents containing azelaic acid or the antibiotic metronidazole. Both have proven helpful in relieving the symptoms of rosacea. Your physician may also prescribe internal antibiotics in the tetracycline family. Esthetically, rosacea is treated with chemical exfoliation, ultrasonic treatments, and calming, hydrating, soothing treatments.

While not a cure, any of these treatments can help control symptoms, sometimes for several years. Self-treatment is not advised, beyond a simple and gentle cleansing routine. Some over-the-counter remedies may actually worsen symptoms, as will aggressive scrubbing and rubbing.  Your licensed Aesthetician may refer you to a dermatologist for evaluation and medical support.

 

What to Expect From A Rosacea Treatment

Be ready to fill out a medical questionnaire and describe what medications and skin care products you are using. Your therapist will do an analysis of your skin, look for any interactions between products and medications, and devise a treatment plan that’s suitable for your unique needs. Be prepared to commit to a series of treatments and a home care regimen.

After your professional treatment, your skin care therapist can recommend a home treatment plan, as well as follow-up professional treatments. Your skin may be more sensitive after treatment. Many professional skin care lines provide specialized products that sooth the inflammation of rosacea. Your aesthetician will carefully choose products for you that are least likely to irritate your skin.

 

Rosacea Home Care

Your aesthetician can provide the best guidance on caring for your skin after a treatment. In general, people with rosacea should keep a diary of things that trigger their condition: environmental factors such as sun, wind, stress, exposure to heat or severe cold, alcohol or spicy food consumption, and irritating face products. Keep in mind that your own diet and lifestyle choices contributes greatly to calming rosacea.

Hyper Pigmentation Treatment

Hyper Pigmentation is the “darkening” of the skin because of an increase in the production of melanin in the skin. When looking for hyper pigmentation treatment, consider a series of light chemical peels. Effective over time, a series of peel will continue to improve your skin while being treating to the brightening properties of the treatments.

Did you know that IPL, hydroquinone skin bleaching creams add inflammation to the skin? Any inflammation will cause your skin to be much more vulnerable to UV rays. Conventional treatments can create “rebound hyper-pigmentation”. If you have ever used these treatment you may have experienced that 3-12 months after you stop (or heal), the hyper-pigmentation returns. And it could come back even darker than before. These conventional treatments only help in the short term and may be damaging in the long run.

Studio City Pigmentation Treatment

studio city pigmentation

Pigmentation issues are common.  Post-inflammatory pigmentation results from a pimple. The best way to reduce hyperigmentation is to avoid getting it in the first place.  Protect your skin from assaults.  Exposure to UV, sugar, wounds, etc.

Stay hydrated, and consume antioxidant rich foods. Eat plenty of red fruits and vegetable, especially tomato paste.  These foods contain lycopene which is a strong antioxidant.  Lycopene neutralizes free radicals. And protects your skin from the sun.

Hyper pigmentation is a reaction from your skin to light and UV.  To protect from skin cancer, you form a tan. Long term, tanning can be very damaging to your skin.  Remember, to correcting hyper-pigmentation is not possible without correcting the cause.

 Studio City Pigmentation Treatment

Exfoliation is key to beautiful skin.  Prevent pigmented skin cells from building up on the surface of your complexion. Certified Dermalogica Specialist and PCA Skin, Clinical Aesthetician Nancy Young is very knowledgable about pigmentation, and melasma treatment.

How to Get A Facial

How to Get A Facial

A professional facial with great skincare products will give you scrupulously clean, glowing, smooth skin.  As a licensed clinical aesthetician, I see many clients in my treatment room in Los Angeles.  To get the best experience, here are some essentials on how to get a facial.

Should be needless to say – go only to a reputable business, and always look for or ask for proper licensure. Many nail salons are offering skincare, in addition to brow grooming, lash extensions, etc. Know that only estheticians and cosmetologists can perform these services. Nail technicians do not receive any training and are not licensed to perform skincare.

Effective products are essential, this is where most places will skimp to save money. As you know, good skincare products are not cheap, there are years and even decades of development, research and testing behind them. Always ask what products are being used on your skin. Not just a matter of creaming and steaming, but protective antioxidants, essential oils, soothing hydration, and skin strengthening peptides are essential ingredients that your skin is thirsty for.

How to Get A Facial Los Angeles

During the client consulation, you and your skin care professional will have a thorough conversation about your skin. You need to inform your aesthetician if you are currently taking any prescription medications, such as Accutane, Retin A, or any other medication as they can affect your skin. Inform your aesthetician about products you are using such as acne products or OTC retinols. Your aesthetician will customizes the facial for you and avoid any skin irritation. Let your aesthetician know about any allergies or sensitivities. If you are a new client, you will have to fill out a client consultation form addressing these topics, and other essentials before your facial.

Be sure you like what you see, the treatment room should be clean and organized. The facial table should be made up with clean sheets and towels, and the equipment should be properly sanitized through the use of either an autoclave or barbicide solution. If you do not see these, ask how tools are sanitized. If you don’t like what you hear, take your business elsewhere. For your facial to be most effective and enjoyable, a relaxing experience is what you should expect.

How to Get A Facial Los Angeles

A facial includes the following: makeup removal, cleansing, steam, exfoliation, extractions, facial massage, facial peel and / or masque, toner, eye cream, moisturizer, and sunscreen. Other add-on treatments can be customized to you, or may be more effective at another time.

While state requirements do vary, your aesthetician is required to wear gloves during extractions. The process can can be a bit uncomfortable, if painful – do let your aesthetician know. When properly done, extractions improve the feel and look of your skin. My extractions are steady but I do not force something that is not ready to be removed. The extraction fluid I use is very good, and softens sebum immediately. I never want to leave extraction marks on my clients. When they walk out of my treatment room, it will be with even toned, gloving skin.

How to Get A Facial Los Angeles

Facial massage is eliminates toxins, stimulates circulation, bringing blood flow with nutrients, and oxygen to your skin. Massage is not suitable for all skin conditions, and your skin care therapist will tailor the steps for you. Stay relaxed, and ask for an extra blanket if you get a bit cold. It is fine to fall asleep, many clients do just that as it’s one of the few times they can be very relaxed and pampered.

Masques hydrate, nourish, and soothe your skin. Your skincare therapist will quietly explain what she is applying to your skin, and how the ingredients work. Skincare ingredients are essential, and I only use the best in my treatment room.

Your facial experience will include some education on how to care for your skin. What you do daily to your skin is just as important, if not more than your monthly facials. Cleanse your skin two times a day, and Use the best products. Avoid facial waxing, and do not use any strong products for at least 5 days.

A great facial will leave your skin firmer, glowing and radiant. I recommend going home to relax, and keep the zen feeling going. The next day, Your skin will be smooth and clear. Remember to hydrate and protect your fresh, exfoliated skin with an SPF moisturizer. An investment in yourself, glowing skin is a luxury, not a right.

Ethnic Esthetics

ethnic esthetics

Everyone recognizes beauty when they see it. Studies have shown that even babies stare longer at a pretty face. However, there are certain particular preferences for various cultures and ethnicity groups. As a state licensed beauty professional, I see many types of people in my treatment room. As an Aesthetician specializing in all things considering the face, it is important to know and recognize what a culture will recognize as the “right look.”  With the diversity we have here in Los Angeles, I appreciate the varying ethnic esthetics  and preferences.

Asian clients prefer a natural brow that is fuller and not so arched. It is the brow of innocence and youth. A straighter brow also draws attention to the roundness of the eyes, and highlights glowing skin. As an Aesthetician that is also Asian, I can understand the great demand for a clear, even-toned, and hydrated complexion. Hyperpigmentation is a challenge for Asians, Blacks, and Hispanics as well.

Black clients usually love a hydrating, even-toned glow. These clients can also to have pigmentation issues, as with Asian and Hispanic clients. Exfoliaton or a PCA chemical peel will result in a healthier, younger-looking skin. Black clients usually also lean toward an arched brow, with some Cleopatra elegance – looking like a Queen that she is. Usually possessing an ageless appearance, remaining wrinkle-free for a long time, sunscreen protection is also a must for these clients, although many do not wear it. And lash extensions, they love it.

Caucasian clients prefer a more groomed look, sometimes quite arched brows for a sexy appeal. Some like a more natural, low maintenance approach – I assess each client carefully by listening carefully to their preferences, and also by asking a lot of questions as to their lifestyle. A client often wants to simply look more groomed or professional; sometimes a thinner brow tail is all that they really need. Lighter skin often is sometimes more sensitive, combination skin is one the most common things I treat.

Hispanic clients love a strong brow as well, complimenting the exotic dark haired look. Many prefer an arched, dramatic look. I work with my clients to give them a best version of what they are looking to accomplish. Exfoliation is key to this population in keeping the skin, and neck area looking bright and even-toned.

Middle Eastern clients in particular, love a “made up look.” Embellished and extravagant is the preference. In the summer, many tourists visit Los Angeles to escape the even hotter desert summers in the Middle East. A strong brow that is on the longer side is the usual preference. Many also love the permanent makeup lips, and long, dramatic lash extensions. Making a statement, glamour as a constant is preferred.

Working closely with my clients, it is their preference and feedback that I am listening for. As I work, they are always given a mirror to check the process as we go, so we both know that the client is getting a look that they really appreciate. Perfecting it, in a way that only a beauty professional knows how to do – my clients always leave my Los Angeles treatment room looking better than they expected. As an Aesthetician working with many people of different backgrounds and types, I specialize in skincare, chemical peels, lash extensions, and permanent makeup. I like to keep it as simple as possible, without compromising a beaYOUtiful result.

Chemical Peels vs Microdermabrasion

Chemical Peels vs Microdermabrasion

 

PCA Skin – Physicians Care Alliance

PCA Skin chemical peels are one of my favorite ways to effectively rejuvenate the skin.  PCA Skin chemical peels are the #1 manufacturer of chemical peels in the United States.  I prefer peels over physical exfoliation methods such as microdermabrasion. Peels are less abrasive, suitable for those with acne, barrier impairment, and other sensitive skin conditions that can not tolerate a more aggressive approach. Dead skin is lifted and the peel is completed over a time period of about a week, working along with your skin’s natural healing process.  This anti-aging treatment is in popular in my treatment rooms here in  Los Angeles. Visit our location photo galleries for Century City, Sherman Oaks, and West Hollywood.

 

Layer & Leave On

A PCA Skin chemical peel is applied to the skin, along with any treatment serums.  Your skin will look glowing, and healthy.  You can resume your day, though you should stay cool and avoid the sun.  Follow the aftercare instructions.  The layer and leave on approach is very nourishing, you sleep with peel on overnight. As the skin rejuvenates, the treatment products and serums contain antioxidants and melanogensis inhibitors. Additionally, lactic acid that naturally is found in the body, and it is also very hydrating for the skin. Skin peeling is done mostly over the 2nd and 3rd days, with about a week to result in a dewy, fresh complexion.

 

32345_10151100084511511_1724609573_n

 

Skin Rejuvenation

One of the best ways to treat acne scarring and pigmentation is to do a series of gentle peels over time. A customized chemical peel for your skin type and conditions will revitalize your complexion, increase collagen production, firm, smooth and brighten. And this includes treating uneven skin texture, and lines and wrinkles. I have clients that are really clearing up their acne, though the reminders from the past remain – acne scarring. After clearing up breakouts, we progress to the a series of light chemical peels to give them back the skin they fondly remember.

 

Pigmentation

Medium to dark skin types can not tolerate deep microdermabrasion because aggressive exfoliation can cause pigmentation and can cause uneven skin tone. In addition to over the counter physical exfoliation products such as apricot shell, sugar, salts, etc – microdermabrasion is a mechanical physical exfoliation. With microdermabasion – using crystals, or diamond tip mediums to “sand” the outer layer of skin, those with more active pigment cells, need to exercise caution. These methods are abrasive and if misused may cause more pigmentation problems. It is also difficult to judge in how long to “scrub” as you may not realize you have gone too far until after completing the methods. For those with acne, and rosacea should avoid any physical exfoliation of any type. Skin inflammation and redness can result in pigmentation.

 

PCA Skin Chemical Peels

 

Laser Treatments

Lasers are a more drastic way to address these kinds of skin issues. Laser treatments can be expensive and painful. Many times they need to be repeated. You would want to get references on the person/professional before using laser therapy for anything. Again, those with more active pigment cells need to be careful.

 

Pre-Blended PCA Chemical Peels

Another thing that I look for is pre-blended peels, to increase consistency and best treatment results. PCA Skin peels can target your skin type and accomplish great improvements to your skin over time. All skin pigmentation problems, overall skin tone, and light acne scarring can all benefit from the right type of exfoliation. Aesthetic chemical peels work on the surface of the skin to loosen and help flake off the old dead skin cells that build up over time. As one ages, natural cellular turnover slows down. With a series of gentle peels over time, effective treatment serums that can now easily penetrate your skin – there will be considerable improvements to your complexion. As part of your regular maintenance, PCA Skin chemical peels are well tolerated, safely address many skincare concerns, and have excellent results.

Glendale Hyper Pigmentation

Glendale Hyper Pigmentation Treatment

Hyper pigmentation concerns are common to almost every person.  Everyone has at one point or another experienced post inflammatory hyper pigmentation from acne.  Excess pigmentation also results from wounds. Over use of acne skin products also result in dark, dehydrated skin spots.  Too much skin exfoliation from scrubs or microdermabasion is also a cause of hyper pigmentation.  Certain medications cause skin sensitivities and pigmentation.  Other reasons are stress, sun exposure, and dehydration.

 

Melasma

Melasma is common in women, though men have it too.  Rather than dark sports, melasma results in patchy areas of excess pigmentation.  Usually on the forehead, cheeks, and upper lip.  Melasma is triggered by hormonal shifts, and excess sun exposure.
