Painted People Tattoo

Painted People Tattoo’s owner Asia has been in the business and tattooing for 13 years. Recently moving onto Wilson Avenue, this appointment only tattoo shop is constantly busy.  They have many different artists specializing in all styles and Asia was the perfect fit for mine.  During our consultation, I explained to Asia my ideas and from that she was able to construct a beautiful outline exactly like I wanted.  Asia loves doing flowers and was so happy that I approached her with mine. 

On the day of my appointment I walked back into Painted People full of nerves but Asia was great at calming them and putting me at ease.  Throughout the hour that it took, she kept me talking and alert with my mind off the tattoo and pain.  She really paid attention to what I wanted and captured my imagination in her artwork.  Asia and the staff at Painted People made this experience a very pleasant one.

Exfolier Rejuvene

Walking into Exfolier Rejuvene, the first thing I noticed was the décor. The chandeliers, flowers and soft music made for a very welcoming environment for my first facial.  My appointment was for 4 pm and on the dot I was taken into the private back room to begin the procedure. First, my hair was placed back and my face washed. Next, Linda carried out a skin analysis that she does for every client.  I had always thought that I had an oily t-zone, when really I have dry skin and was just using the wrong products.  Linda was really thorough and every step was explained as she was doing it.  

A microdermabrasion facial is when tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer and the dead cells.  It is a non-invasive procedure and not harming to the skin.  It is all skin exfoliation and rejuvenation that leaves the skin softer and brighter than before.  Microdermabrasion took about 40 minutes and a small machine that looked like a pen was swept across my face and had a pulling feeling almost like a vacuum.  There was no pain or discomfort and I actually enjoyed that feeling on my face.  Next, a white mask was placed over my face and a red, purple and blue light was flashed onto my skin for 20 minutes.  This was to even my skin tone, brighten and promote collagen growth.  As soon as that was done a face mask to brighten and moisturize was placed on and left for a couple of minutes to harden.  Throughout this whole process the conversation was flowing and Linda was so great to get to know. She had calmed all of my nerves that I had going in there.  After my facial she asked if I would like to do my brows as she saw potential in the thin sparse blonde hairs.  My brows were tinted to a shade of brown to match my hair and waxed into a perfect arch.  

After a final look in the mirror, I left Exfolier Rejuvene with amazing brows, plump glowing skin and a smile on my face.  It was a great experience that left my skin with noticeable differences and a beautiful glow that will now regularly be part of my beauty routine.
