How Medical Cosmetology Procedures Can Enhance your Natural Beauty

Throughout history, humans have struggled to enhance their appearance but in a way that makes the enhancements seem natural. Today’s cosmetology procedures enhance your natural beauty with such success that you will not need to pile on the cosmetics.

Cosmetics have been around for at least two million years, with the use of face and body paints dating as far back as the Paleolithic era. People began applying rouges and powders during the Shang and Zhou dynasty in about 1600–1050 B.C. It became popular to discuss cosmetics during China’s Spring and Autumn dynasties and, over time, cosmetology and traditional Chinese medicine began to fuse together as healers began to understand the mental health benefits of looking good.

In modern life, it is not enough to slather on some makeup – cosmetics must enhance the wearer’s natural beauty. In fact, Americans were reluctant to alter their looks in any way that created an unnatural look until quite recently. Although hair dyes have been around for centuries, only models, actresses and “fast women” colored their hair until the 1950s and ‘60s, when Clairol introduced their famous hair dye campaign slogan, “Does she or doesn’t she? Only her hairdresser knows for sure.”

This old ad revolutionized cosmetics in the United States in two very important ways. First, it made it okay for women to dye their hair. Second, saying that Clairol was so good that only professionals could tell the difference created a lasting trend towards cosmetology products and procedures that enhance natural beauty rather than just covering it up.

Medical Cosmetology Procedures that Improve Upon Nature

Medical cosmetology can actually enhance your natural beauty merely by perfecting what nature has already given you. Smooth, flawless skin does not need as much makeup to look healthy, for example, and long-term hair removal reduces the need for shaving with a razor or using harmful chemicals on your skin.

Laser hair removal leaves the skin on your face and your body looking smooth, whereas shaving and plucking leave behind unattractive bumps and acne-like breakouts. Chemical hair removers, in comparison, are tough on your skin and do nothing to prevent hair from growing back darker and more noticeable than ever before. After repeated laser hair removal treatments, however, hair grows back finer and lighter in color. Waxing is also infinitely better than plucking, as it removes unwanted hair for up to eight weeks.

Skin care procedures vastly improve upon nature by making your skin so smooth and attractive, you will not need makeup! Chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and laser skin tightening removes tired old skin cells and promotes the development of fresh, healthy looking skin. Permanent makeup eliminates the need for any makeup at all.

Botox enhances your natural beauty by stopping the natural aging process it its tracks, so you will not need to cover your wrinkles with makeup or use messy creams to stay young looking.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) “Vampire Facials” are the ultimate in enhancing natural beauty with what you already have inside you. The PRP procedure uses plasma and platelets collected from your own body to reduce pigment, reduce stretch marks, and treat wrinkles and light scarring, saving you from having to wear a ton of makeup to hide these flaws.

Today’s cosmetology procedures can enhance your natural beauty so well, people will be saying “Does she or doesn’t she? Only her cosmetologist knows for sure.”

Why Microblading Isn’t Just a Fad

trouve-tattoo-eyebrows

Bold, defined brows are a hot trend, led by Instagram superstars like Demi Lovato and Cara Delevingne. Unfortunately, you may not be blessed with the full, dark hair you need to pull this look off. You can make this youthful, vibrant trend come to life with a fistful of powders, gels, and brushes. However, you may end up like Alyssa Coscarelli: “Before I knew it, I was spending a whole 10 to 15 minutes on my brow routine every morning, and when you’re not a morning person, this gets old fast.”

What about a long-term, no-fuss solution? What about eyebrow tattoos? Or even better…the newer, less invasive process of microblading?

Permanent makeup has come a long way. Long gone are the days of cartoonish, overdrawn lips and brows that look like they were applied with a black marker. Modern dyes come in a variety of flattering colors and safe formulations, and the application techniques employed in medspas are subtle and flattering with quick recovery times.

Lately, there’s been buzz about a new technique, sometimes called ‘eyebrow embroidery’ or ‘microblading.’ This is similar to eyebrow tattooing, but is much safer and less invasive…as the ink only enters the outermost layer of skin, also called the epidermal layer. Meanwhile true eyebrow tattooing is injected further into the dermis, or inner layer of skin. You will be so pleased with the gorgeous, natural look this process gives you. So I’m sure you’re wondering, “How is it done?”

Eyebrow Embroidery, Step by Step:
First, you need to locate a professional who is trained in this technique and will do it in a safe, sterile manner. You may have excellent results with a specialist at a medspa. The browologist will look at the ideal shape of your brows, and may mark the outline or fill them in with removable marker. Don’t worry, you won’t look like this forever!
Next, numbing cream will be applied to your skin. You may find yourself sitting for a while, to give the cream time to do its work. Meanwhile, the browologist will match their inks to your brow hair’s natural color. For best results, they may do a custom blend of dyes.
Once your face is numb, they will begin the blading process. This part of the procedure is faster than you may think, sometimes taking just ten minutes! You may feel pressure or a slight scratching sensation.
You can expect a healing time of 1-2 weeks. Your browologist will explain how to care for your skin during and after the procedure.

The Results:
“I held the mirror close to my face in disbelief at what I was seeing. I finally had the brows I always wanted.”
– Alyssa Coscarelli

Eyebrow tattoo fans like Alyssa have raved about the natural results of this technique. Eyebrow embroidery uses fine lines that mimic your own eyebrow hairs and follow the curves of your face. Your brows will look fabulously, naturally thicker.

This semipermanent tattoo is designed to last at least a year. It will fade over time but you can keep the brows looking fabulous for longer by wearing sunscreen and protecting your skin. You can also schedule a brow touchup.

Lip Augmentation: Not Just for Celebrities

say-yes-to-lips

You’ve seen the results of lip augmentation in celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Lisa Rinna, Jessica Simpson and Sharon Osbourne. Obviously, women of all ages can look better with the help of lip augmentation. In fact, lip augmentation procedures are at an all time high! But this procedure isn’t just for celebrities who want a better pout. It’s for anyone who would like to look younger and sexier. It’s for you.

The Signs of Aging on the Lips
Your lips give your age away more than you might think. With age, lips become thinner and more wrinkled. They sometimes even start to have a downward appearance at the edges, giving your resting face that permanent “frown” look. Lip augmentation does away with all that nasty business. Shortly after treatment, your lips can be full and youthful looking again, just like the hottest celebrities you see in magazines.

Enhance Thin Lips With Augmentation
Even younger lips can benefit from lip augmentation. Just look at Kylie Jenner. She didn’t try to launch her career with the thin lips she inherited from her mother. Instead, she went for lip augmentation and now she’s making money selling lip products to young women who want the same look. There’s nothing wrong with thin lips, but if you don’t like yours, there’s something you can do about. Get lip augmentation, and in a very short time, you can have the kind of lip real estate that women envy and men can’t get enough of.

Enough of the Trout Pout
If you think lip augmentation gives you that hideous trout pout that everyone makes fun of, think again. These days, lip augmentation is a much more subtle procedure. So subtle, in fact, that people may wonder if you actually had anything done, or if your lips are just looking fuller naturally. You can let them keep guessing, because it can be our little secret. Lip augmentation doesn’t leave any telltale scars like other cosmetic procedures can. There’s nothing to give away your secret if you want to keep it that way. The only think you have to admit to is having full, luscious lips that men want to kiss.

An Affordable Beauty Treatment
One of the most attractive features about lip augmentation is its affordability. Practically anyone with a wallet can afford to have lip augmentation done. So if you’ve been holding back on finding out more about lip augmentation, don’t. You don’t need to take out a jumbo loan to get youthful, plump lips. Go ahead and make an appointment for a consultation so you can get started on one of the most affordable beauty treatments available.

Improve Your Self-Esteem
If your thin lips or so-so smile has been making you have low self-esteem all your life, why not try lip augmentation? This procedure has such a beautiful effect on women of all ages that you’re sure to feel better about yourself everyday when you look in the mirror. Not only that, but you’ll be able to wear the trendiest lip colors with confidence. Get used to feeling good about yourself, because that’s what lip augmentation can do for you.

Contact us today for more information about this affordable and straightforward treatment. You’ll be glad you did!

Where to Get Latisse Products

Where to Get Latisse Products | Spa Trouve

Are you tired of thinning, sparse lashes? Even with expensive mascara, you may still be unable to achieve the long, beautiful lashes you desire. However, the good news is that there are ways to achieve longer and fuller lashes without the need for lengthening mascara or fake lashes (which can actually damage your natural lashes).

Specifically, Latisse products can be used to promote growth for longer, fuller, and healthier lashes.

Latisse for Lashes

Latisse is an FDA-approved treatment for thinning lashes; it can be applied directly to the lash line and comes in a serum form. Studies have found that using Latisse as directed can result in 106% fuller, 25% longer, and 18% darker lashes.

How to Use Latisse

Latisse must be obtained by a prescription, and a specialist should instruct you on how to properly apply the product to the lash line in order to achieve optimal results. Typically, the serum should be applied once a day to the base of the upper lashes. That’s it!

What to Expect

In as little as eight weeks, you can expect to notice longer, fuller, and darker lashes. Many women report that they no longer feel the need to use mascara, eyelash curlers, or even false lashes to achieve the look they desire. Not to mention, one small bottle of Latisse goes a long way, and will pay off in the long run. You can finally stop shopping around for lengthening mascara and other products.

Where to Get Latisse Products

If you’re interested in finding out more about Latisse and how it works to help you achieve longer and fuller eyelashes, contact Spa Trouvé today. We’re a proud provider of Latisse products here in our office and would be happy to show you how to apply it as well! Be sure to check our promotions page often for the latest deals and specials.

Here at Spa Trouve we specialize in laser hair removal, and love answering frequently asked questions about this amazing procedure:

Is it Safe?

Smooth skin is a sure path to looking young and beautiful. Laser hair removal is an excellent way to maintain smooth, healthy skin without all the shaving that causes dry or itchy bumps. Today, most women shave. In fact, a full 84 percent of women groom their bikini areas, according to Self. Why go to all that effort and damaged skin when you could remove it permanently?

Does it Hurt?

Some clients experience minor discomfort during their treatments. People compare it to a rubber band snapping against the skin. If you are uncomfortable, we have a topical numbing cream that helps with the pain.

Can you Treat Blonde Hair?

At your consultation, we will evaluate the color of your skin and hair, and let you know what you can realistically expect. In general, laser hair removal is less effective on body areas with blonde, red or grey hair.

Is it Permanent?

Spa Trouvé offers permanent hair removal with the latest in laser technology. It is important to note that not all “lasers” on the market give permanent results. we offer only the best in Cynosure laser technology to give optimal results. The average patient can achieve 70-90% hair loss after 12-14 treatments.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?
