PERMANENT COSMETICS

Let our Experts Enhance your Natural Beauty with our Exclusive Advanced Techniques.

Permanent Eyebrows & Microblading

“3D Hair Stroke Brows”  Your perfect brows are achieved by removing hair where it is too heavy, and adding hair strokes of color where the hair is sparse.  Semi and permanent cosmetics join waxing and tweezing to sculpt exquisite brows.

Permanent Eyeliner & Lash Enhancement

Adding color to the lash line makes lashes appear darker and fuller. It also defines, brightens and accentuates the eyes. Thickness and color are customized for each client.

Permanent Lip Color & Lip Blushing

Creates a beautiful, youthful look by adding soft color, fullness, and definition to the lips. You will still be able to change the color with your own lipstick when you want to.

3D Nipple and Areola Tattoo

3D Nipple and Areola Tattooing- Shading, shadows, and other specialized techniques create realistic nipples as the final step to Breast Reconstruction following mastectomy.

SKINCARE & SPA TREATMENTS

Restore the health and beauty of your skin with our powerful, yet non-invasive Spa Treatments.

Chemical Peel/Micropeel

Brighten skin and dissolve dead skin cells with glycolic, lactic, or salicylic acid.  This treatment is a quick, affordable, and effective way to restore a youthful, healthy glow.  Suitable for Most Skin Types.

Microdermabrasion

A skin resurfacing treatment that is performed with a special handpiece that releases tiny crystals across your skin for gentle buffing and polishing.  The crystals, along with a vacuum, remove dull, lifeless, damaged, and flaking skin cells to uncover silky new skin below the surface.  Suitable for all skin types.

Dermaplaning

A mechanical exfoliation that gently scrapes away dead cells and facial “peach fuzz” to reveal baby soft skin.  This is a great by itself, or as an addition to any of our skin treatments.  Not suggested for active acne skin.

Photofacial/IPL/Laser Hair Removal

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, and is commonly known as a photofacial.  Damaged skin cells are heated with a pulsed light, improving skin tone and surface imperfections caused by aging and sun damage.  This treatment rids the skin of brown spots, redness, broken capillaries, acne, rosacea, and sun damage.  This treatment is only safe for pale to medium skin tones. 

HydraFacial

This treatment thoroughly cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates, and nourishes all skin types in a revolutionary way.  Dead skin cells are removed while impurities are extracted, as the skin is flushed with hydration serums and infused with antioxidants and peptides.  You’ll be amazed by the clean, healthy glow!

Microneedling/Collagen Induction Therapy

Micro-Needling plumps and hydrates the skin from the inside out.  Very fine, short needles are used to push Hyaluronic Acid into the skin while causing micro injuries which trigger your skin to produce more of its own collagen.  This treatment can improve the appearance of fine lines, acne scarring, sun damage, large pores and improves the skin’s overall appearance.

LASH & BROW SERVICES

Lash Lifting

Eliminate the need for eyelash curling for up to 3 months.

 

Brow Shaping

Let our brow experts sculpt your perfectly polished brows.

Lash & Brow Tinting

Eliminate the need for mascara. Darkens the lashes for up to 6 weeks.

Why Our Program is Second to None

Chosen and led by Cosmetic Solutions President and Cosmetic Enhancement Specialist, Rachel Schinosi, our staff has unparalleled skill and expertise.

Why Choose Us?

Cosmetic Solutions uses state of the art equipment, quality pigments, and sterile safety needle cartridges.   A clean and comfortable atmosphere is maintained at all times, with treatment rooms that are specifically used for permanent makeup treatments.

 

Before you let someone do your permanent makeup, ask the following questions:

  • How long have you been doing permanent makeup?
  • How many permanent makeup procedures have you done? (Be specific! If you are shopping for permanent lip color, ask how many lip color procedures they have done.)
  • Where did you obtain your permanent makeup training?
  • What did your permanent makeup training entail?
  • Did you complete an apprenticeship after completing your fundamental permanent makeup certification?
  • How often do you do permanent makeup? (How many procedures per day? Per week? Per year?)
  • Do your pigments have Safety Data Sheets, Lot numbers, and expiration dates?
  • Do you keep records?
  • Do you have professional references? (They should be able to give you names of a couple of salons, spas, or physicians who refer permanent makeup to them if they are qualified.)
  • Do you have before and after photos? (You need to see pictures of work immediately after and healed!!)
  • Do you offer a full line of pigments with unlimited color options?
  • Can you explain what measures you take to ensure cleanliness of the procedure?
  • Can you explain your policy for touching up and maintaining my permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup is not regulated in most states. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the customer to evaluate whether or not their artist is truly qualified. When someone tells you that they are “certified”, it does not necessarily mean that they are experienced. Most certificates are obtained after only 3 or 4 days of training! Currently, there is not a single fundamental permanent makeup training course that lasts more than one week. This should be a huge concern for people who choose a recent graduate, considering that it takes up to six weeks before you can see “healed results” on the clients who are practiced on during permanent makeup training. Just because someone is a good hair stylist, nail tech, makeup artist, or painter, does not necessarily mean they will be good at permanent makeup after completing a week of training. Less experienced permanent makeup artists are likely to have more complications with their procedures. Some include: excessive swelling and bruising, un-necessary discomfort, longer procedure times, and unsatisfactory results. DO NOT trust your face to someone inexperienced!!

Luckily, at Cosmetic Solutions, we are setting our standards higher. Our artists are easy to communicate with, talented, and are passionate about helping people look and feel their best. All technicians are state licensed as estheticians/cosmetologists and must demonstrate superior abilities in makeup artistry. After completing their fundamental permanent makeup training, our technicians apprentice under an experienced permanent makeup artist and must perfect at least 50 procedures before they can perform that specific procedure on their own. Our Permanent makeup studio is overseen by Rachel Schinosi. She has performed over 75,000 permanent makeup procedures since 1999 and has developed many of her own techniques, including Brow Brilliance-TM, our exclusive eyebrow enhancement treatment. Rachel’s techniques are only taught to permanent makeup artists who are selected to work for Cosmetic Solutions.
