6D Sculpture eyebrow is a tattoo technique that fills brows out or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs.  It leaves brows looking natural, and is done with a hand-held tool — it “looks like an X-ACTO knife made out of needles,”— It is done by making small, implanting pigment under the skin in the upper dermal layer, but doesn’t go as deep as a normal tattoo would. It’s also semi-permanent. Your 6D Sculpture brows should last between two to five years, about three years on Avg. The actual 6D Sculpture is probably the shortest part of your appointment,

You need to prepare

If you drink a lot, take aspirin, or use retinol, stop one week before your treatment. “Retinol makes your skin thin and then you bleed a little more”. Avoid blood thinners, aspirin, and alcohol.

It doesn’t hurt (too much)

Pain is relative. “Some feel more than others. Overall it feels like little scratches. You feel it, but it’s not unbearable. It’s not like having a baby”. We will use the topical numbing cream for reducing the discomfort.

Aftercare is essential

That means protecting freshly bladed brows from all moisture–no sweaty workouts or washing your face with water. Some patients experience some itching and redness during the first week, which Vaseline can alleviate. Brows will look slightly darker at first, but the color will fade 30 to 40 percent.

6D Sculpture is an investment

The first treatment can cost up to $950. While lower-priced services are available, we cautions against visiting inexperienced technicians. Remember, 6D Sculpture is a form of tattooing.

Skin Pen

Face and neck: $425

Face only: $300

Skin Pen (SP) is based on fine needle penetration that can deliver some of the same benefits as fractional lasers but at more affordable prices and without the down time. SP stimulates your skin to produce more collagen and elastin. Why do you need more collagen and elastin? Because they form skin’s structure — collagen imparts strength, while elastin contributes the elastic quality essential for healthy skin. As you get older, your skin produces less collagen and elastin, which contributes to wrinkles and loose skin.

When very thin needles from SP, are used to gently puncture the skin and create small channels. They trigger the body’s natural healing process, including the production of collagen and elastin. This technique improves skin texture, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, and helps remove scars.

The SP delivers an unparalleled response via fractional delivery of needles into the epidermis and dermis. The micro injuries to the skin encourage the power of the body’s ability to repair the skin. SP can be used on any part of the body. 4-6 sessions are recommended 4-6 weeks apart.

How it works: SP offers solutions for all skin types with very little down time. SP creates a small wound to the skin with fine micro needles which will then allow the skin to respond with collagen productions and new skin cells. Depending on the depth of the needle penetration, the SP can offer skin rejuvenation levels from a simple enhancement of product absorption to the clinical treatment of scars, wrinkles and pigmentation.

Dermaplaning $145

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 to 14 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. “Dermaplaning requires handling a very sharp blade that’s used in surgeries.

Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.

Wondering if you should try dermaplaning versus microdermabrasion? They are both forms of physical exfoliation, but the methods are very different. Microdermabrasion sands and suctions dead skin cells, which also helps to uproot clogged pores around the nose, mouth and chin. Dermaplaning safely scrapes off the top layer of skin, so it is well suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz. But, keep in mind, both methods are good for almost everyone and it could just boil down to your personal preference.

Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acne skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.

This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream and potentially harming your baby.

Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face.

First, the aesthetician will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Next, she’ll pull an area of your skin taut with one hand, and hold a sterile 10 to 14 gauge blade at a 45 degree angle in the other hand and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz.

You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture right after it’s done. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.

Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.

Dermaplaning should be administered by a board certified dermatologist or licensed aesthetician who specializes in this procedure. An aesthetician has to be licensed in the state she is practicing in. There are several different schools you can attend, but ultimately you have to pass a state administered written and practical exam to get your license. It’s always a good idea to ask how long they’ve been administering dermaplaning to know their level of experience—there’s a very sharp blade involved.
