Lips Are In Season

I can always tell when lips are in season as women are calling to ask me, “What can you do to make my lips look fuller, and give them more color?” Women are too busy to keep applying lip color, and then they get frustrated when the color feathers into the fine lines around their lips.

My first response is, “You can never go wrong when you have a natural, classic looking color tattooed on your lips. This will give your lips the rich, fuller appearance you are looking for.”

Did you know we start to lose our natural lip color as early as our late twenties? Eventually our lips turn very pale, and sometimes even colorless. This can become frustrating for the women who want to have richer, fuller looking lips.

When choosing lip colors I always like to stay with a more classic color that will stand the test of time. This never fails to compliment my clients natural color tones, whether it be a brick, mauve, praline, or anything in-between. Women want their lips to have the vibrancy of color like they see on these beautiful, younger children. That natural, rich coloring with a crisp outline.

The last question they always ask before we begin the procedure is, “Can I change my lip color if I want to?” And my response is, “YES!” The beauty of this procedure is, when you have your lips tattooed with pigment, you will wake up with a more natural looking vibrancy already in your lips, but you will have the flexibility to change the color by using a lip balm over top of your tattooed lips if you wish. You will also love the added feature that your lip balm will tend to stay within the perimeter of your tattooed lip area.

By calling Alisa today she can help give you back those richer, fuller lips that natural aging has taken away.

HERE IS A FUN WAY TO CREATE YOUR OWN LIP BALM

Find a blush, or eyeshadow that you like for your lips. Take tweezers and scrape some of the powder off on a clean surface. Mix it with clear balm, or petroleum jelly. If you want the color to be deeper add more pigment, if you want it a bit softer, add more balm. Have fun!

If you have any questions, or would like to schedule for your lip treatment give Alisa Florio a call today at 419-680-1486.

We get one opportunity at living out this life, let’s make it a great one. Thank you all for your wonderful support, Hugs to you!

Cancer & Permanent Makeup

Did you know that the American Cancer Society says in the United States alone cancer will occur in 3 out of 4 families, and cancer plays no favorites?

My Mom was working in the professional field when she was diagnosed with cancer. Like most people who are struck with cancer, she couldn’t afford not to work. She continued at her job while undergoing radiation, and chemo treatments. Mom lost all her hair including most of her brows, and eyelashes; just like the client I’m going to share with you today.

Patty’s before Permanent Makeup

Patty was happy to share her pictures with you to help others who are going thru the turmoil of hair loss with cancer. She wanted you to see the benefits of the Permanent Makeup

Patty after Permanent Brow & Eyeliner

We can put clothing on, and wear decorative hair pieces to cover scars and loss of scalp hair, but our eyebrows and eyelashes will give the cancer away every time! Mom was self conscious of her appearance which became the motivator for me to learn how to do permanent makeup. Now, 25 years later, I’ve had the privilege of working with thousands of men & women like Mom, and Patty.

As cancer is on a rampant rise, so is the need to look, and feel as normal as possible while going through this devastating experience. Hope, Faith, and Self confidence makes all the difference in the world!

GET YOUR GLOW ON

 

Did you know you can WAKE UP YOUR SKIN with a DERMA PLANING FACIAL?

 YES, IT’S TRUE!  Our face gets year round exposure which makes us vulnerable to all types of environmental damage. Then when we add other factors like age, stress, and poor eating habits our skin can respond to this invasion, or lack of nourishment, by going into a dormant phase. This means the elasticity in our skin doesn’t have the bounce back that it once did. We can see visible signs of its resilient nature going into a sleep mode. So, if you’re wanting to GET YOUR GLOW ON

IT’S TIME TO TAKE ACTION! 

For the month of November you can earn $10 towards any Skin Care purchase of      $80 or more when you have your DERMA PLANING FACIAL

If you have any questions, or you would like to schedule your facial treatment today call Alisa Florio at 419-680-1486 You can also go to profilesbyalisa.com for more information.

“Women who want to feel confident about themselves!”

As we enter into a new season the phone lines are getting busy again at Profiles by Alisa with this main focus, “Women who want to feel confident about themselves with a Fresh, New Look!One that gives her a freer expression of herself without the use of tons of makeup, with the added benefit of time management, and skin care products that will give her noticeable results. Many women balance life with children, grandchildren, careers, and a significant other; while fretting over stress related issues such as: hair loss in their brows and lashes, scar tissue from acne breakouts, wrinkles and age spots, as well as dull, uneven skin tones.

To answer the most popular questions on how to achieve this Fresh, New Look; here are the most noticeable treatments available, and the most affordable in the beauty industry; as an alternative to laser or surgery

              PERMANENT MAKEUP, NEEDLING & DERMA PLANING & here’s why

Women come to Alisa to feel confident about how they look and to eliminate hours in front of a mirror. Here are the most effective treatments with longer lasting results that have Wellness/Beauty Clinics popping up all over!

PERMANENT MAKEUP may not be completely permanent, but it is definitely longer lasting than any other approach available! Alisa prefers to use a technique that simulates the look of natural hair strokes in the brows. Adding eyeliner helps the eye color to appear more vibrant. Finishing with a whisper of color to the lips to give her clients an overall Brighter & Fresher appearance.

NEEDLING is a growing art that, when used in conjunction with targeted skin care products, has made noticeable improvements to scar tissue and helping the face to appear more plump by waking up the skin. Therefore, reducing the appearance of wrinkles & expression lines, especially effective around the mouth and forehead.        

DERMA PLANING  is a safe alternative to Botox, Chemical Peels, and other injectables by removing dead cells that just rest on our face causing dull, uneven skin tones. This procedure also leaves the skin in prime condition to treat it with a Doctor Formulated Regimen that has proven to reverse the signs of aging. This is Alisa’s personal favorite with it’s patented ingredients to restore the moisture & elasticity loss due to our environment. 

These 3 advantages in the beauty industry can be key elements to having more stability and a stress free start to every day. Do your research and find a beauty consultant that will help you target your concerns and give you noticeable results!

A Natural, Realistic Approach to Permanent Makeup & Skin Cell Repair

 

Isn’t it crazy all this extra time that could be saved if we didn’t have to use conventional makeup to draw on our eyebrows, eyeliner & lip color each morning, especially when we watch it disappear throughout the day? Saving time, and always fixing herself in front of a mirror were the reasons Alisa chose to get Permanent Makeup over 20 years ago. Now with the progressive damage the sun and environmental debris are doing to our skin, this has led her to using a doctor formulated regimen to help combat these concerns. These may be 2 of your concerns as well, looking fresh and having healthy skin.

    At Profiles by Alisa we are focused on taking a natural, realistic approach in the Art of Permanent Makeup & Skin Cell Repair. 

Many of us are wanting to go through some type of a transition that will leave us feeling confident, and ready in a moments notice for work, family, and fun. Permanent Makeup, along with Skin Care Treatments and products, can help you achieve a successful transformation. Especially since our skin, and having a fresh appearance are high on the list in aiding to our self confidence.

After years of experience, and working with thousands of clients, Alisa has found that with the application of Permanent Makeup in conjunction with Skin Care Treatments, and doctor grade regimens; has helped put many smiles back on her clients faces. When tattooed makeup is applied to compliment the individuals natural color tones, and bone structure, this allows the artists live canvas of skin, and the ink to harmonize with one another. Her approach to treating the skin, along with the application of permanent makeup, have given her clients the freedom from the concerns of applying a conventional makeup, and the appearance of clearer, brighter, as well as; smoother looking skin.

Alisa enjoys the art of mastering the, “Hair stroke” technique, which helps her clients eyebrows appear so real. When eyebrows are combined with the permanent eyeliner, which we know enhances the overall appearance of the eyes, giving the color part of the eyes more clarity, and shine; these two procedures work together to erase years from a women’s appearance. By pigmenting the lips you can bring back that missing cupids bow that helps to add character along with the lip line; giving the lips an overall fuller look. Who could ask for more?

Now that the makeup is in place, lets clear the skin of those blemishes, dehydration and dark spots. Giving it back the elasticity along with that pink glow as we even out the skin tones, eliminating those fine lines. You will hear Alisa say that skin can look malnourished, and when you give it the right vitamins and nutrients it goes from that pruny look to a more plump, and hydrated appearance.

Permanent Makeup, Skin Care Treatments & Regimens are all part of Alisa’s expertise when it comes to problem solving. With the application of her unique technique, and doctor formulated products you will discover her approach to be a very natural looking alternative to laser and injection treatments. She can help connect you with answers to help resolve your beauty concerns, and recommend the best approach to fit your budget, and desired outcome.

Here is a fun skin fact for you:  Did you know as we approach our late 20’s our skin is already starting to break down? This is the ideal age Plastic Surgeons like you to start thinking about plastic surgery. Hard to believe but I have heard this to be true. Always, always use some type of a moisturizer. Any moisturizer is better than no moisturizer.

Have a great day, love to you all, and for any further questions you can reach Alisa at 419-680-1486 or by email at profilesbyalisa@yahoo.com

Creating Beautiful Brows

 

These past few weeks of creating beautiful brows from the ages of 19-72 has reminded me that even after drawing on thousands of brows, at this point in my career, no 2 faces are the same. Each client has their own unique canvas the same as the identity of a fingerprint.

Taking the time to do a complete consultation gives me, as an artist, the opportunity to study the characteristics of the live canvas I will be drawing on.

The condition of the clients skin, whether it is dry or oily, are their pores large or small, what age group am I working with to allow room for the stretching of their skin, do they have droopy eyelids; these are just the beginning of an artists observation.

An artist can never go wrong when they stick to drawing on a classic brow. By doing this, they can keep the color to a more natural tonal value and a shape that can be utilized to create a timeless brow; allowing room for future hair strokes to be added as the client loses more natural hair with age, and the fading of pigment due to the elements their skin is exposed to.

I believe perfectly placed brows can be challenging when drawing on with either a pencil that can be wiped off or when using a tool for a lengthier time frame. Finding the right color tone and shape is essential to the longevity of the artists portrait. Their is a science to a brow design and a chemistry to formulating a color that lasts a duration of time and has a pleasing flow to the individuals overall appearance.

Future touchups are going to be necessary throughout the life of your creation. Like everything else that is exposed to environmental elements you will experience fading, and you want to ensure the best performance. These touchups normally range from 2-7 years depending on each clients preference and needs. These touch ups play a vital role in the longevity of maintaining a beautiful brow, and normally come with a lesser cost than the initial creation of the more permanent or long term eyebrow.

I also believe the most important feature of an individual is their brows, which ultimately is connected with the eyes. When one’s brows are missing or have broken sections in the natural flow, the onlooker tends to move their attention across the canvas of the person they are looking at and this can be disruptive to the person who is wanting to maintain a pleasing eye contact.

Over the years I have noticed the rise in confidence as my clients leave the artisans seat. Their whole body structure changes. They rise from the lounging chair with their shoulders parallel and ready to meet their onlookers with the reassurance of what they consider to be a flawless appearance; they now feel balance to the over all structure of the one part of their body that none of us can hide.

Yes we can mask it for a time period, but this becomes daunting after a while. Life can keep us busy with high demands that don’t allow time for us to put that perfect face on everyday with a pencil or powder.

A common fear most people will ask about is, “What will I look like while my brows are going through the scabbing period?” Here is a picture a client sent me yesterday after having her procedure on December 22, 2 weeks and 2 days after her brow treatment. All 3 pictures in this post are from a 19 year old someone had recommended to come see me because she was self conscience of having no eyebrows, and it was hard for her to get them even everyday while trying to keep up with her hectic lifestyle. When I called her to ask her if she could send me a picture she went on and on about how her and her friends love her brows, how natural they look, and she is so thankful for the time I took to make her feel comfortable enough to follow through with having them done. I responded with, “I too am thankful for you trusting in me to be the one to do them for you!”

I love the sparkle in these clients as they leave, and I look forward to them coming back in for more procedures until they’ve had their brows, eyeliner and lips done. This releases the stress of them having to take time to put makeup on at all!

One woman told me yesterday, “I don’t know what to do with myself any more in the mornings because I have all this free time now, so I sleep longer. I’ve never been able to do that before!”

All people have a beauty within them waiting to be discovered. Each having their own canvas, characteristics, personalities, color tones, and lifestyles. I am privileged to have discovered the talents God has placed in my fingers with a heart to pursue his purpose and a desire to help others discover their unique selves!

Thank you so much for adding to my life purpose by trusting me to design your Beautiful Brows!

Happy New Year, much love, and God bless you all!!

Today’s Beauty Report

What are these hard white bumps on my face and how do I get rid of them?

Many women who come to me for Dermaplanning facials are wanting to know what these white things are on their face, and the most common response I have for them is, “You have milia but the good news is, I can help you with this, and it is normally very treatable with speedy results.”

Then I go on to explain what milia is, how it forms and what to do to get rid of it. So let’s take a few moments to inform all of my readers on milia with today’s beauty report.

Milia is the small, hard, seed-like cysts, normally white in color that form on the skin’s surface from keratinized dead skin cells that get trapped underneath the surface of the skin.

Milia is commonly found on babies because their skin is learning how to exfoliate, or slough off the dead skill cells. As the skin reproduces and leaves behind these dead cells they rest on the skin and get trapped in the pores causing these tiny bumps. Sometimes these bumps can also be called Comedone’s, which is a Dermatologist term for clogged pores.

I have found most of my teen and adult clients who are experiencing these outbreaks of milia or comedones have similar stories such as: stress, lack of time to spend on their skin, hormonal imbalances, and unhealthy eating habits. Ultimately, leaving them feeling frustrated from trying to find a solution that works!

How can you take action?

Here are some tips to preventing and helping to get rid of milia and comedones.

  1. Cleanse with Salicylic Face & Body Wash a micro-exfoliating cleanser with 2% salicylic acid for enhanced dead cell removal and coconut oil to balance the skins moisture levels. This is 100% fragrance & sulfate free. Unclogs pores and improves pigment while clearing those unwanted bumps from your face, back of arms & elbows, shoulders & back, and anywhere else you want to smooth the skins texture.
  2. After cleansing tone your skin with Dual Action Toner to help refine skin’s texture and dissolve oil & debris inside the pores. Daily use will give the skin a gentle microscopic exfoliation and leave it with a healthy radiance.
  3. You can catapult your results by adding Green Tea Antioxidant Serum to your daily regiment.
  4. While using a moisturizer is vital to helping preserve the elasticity of your skin clients report that they have a hard time finding a moisturizer that doesn’t feel heavy or cause more breakouts. Clarifying Moisturizer may be your answer. This oil-free hydrator will improve & brighten overstressed skin.
  5. Remove these dead that rest on your skin by taking action:                                                                            A.   Apply small amount of cleanser then use a nylon buff ball, that will not scratch the skin, and make circular movements to cleanse and remove debris, rinse with luke warm water.  B.   Apply a small amount of cleanser to an exfoliating glove and make upward circles to slough of dead cells, rinse with luke warm water.
  6. Go to a trained professional to have Derma planning Facials that will slough off these dry, dead cells that just rest on your face creating havoc. After having a derma planning facial and all the excess debris is removed, this is when your skin will benefit the most by using a mask to super charge your results. Leaving your skin feeling nourished from essential vitamins and nutrients to allow oxygen to have a clearer pathway to regenerize you!
