Coolifting

The CooLifting beauty device uses a low temperature of CO2 gas dispense combined with a solution of a propietary mixture containing hyaluronate. The combination of the cool temperature with the pressure applied instantly hydrates and plumps the skin as well as giving the skin an over all lifted appearance.

Lash Lifting

Lash Lifting  treatments are unlike traditional lash perms of years past. This procedure lifts your natural lashes at the root and in an upward position, creating the appearance of longer, thicker lashes. This treatment is ideal for those that want a little extra oomph from their lashes, but without all the maintenance of lash extensions, or the daily use of an eyelash curler.

Eyelash and Brow Tinting

Eyelash/Eyebrow tint is a form of hair dye developed for specific use on the eyelashes and eyebrows. Eyelash/Eyebrow tinting produces a similar effect to mascara or brow pencil/powder. It visibly lengthens, darkens and thickens the appearance of eyelashes and darkens the eyebrows without smudging, clotting or rubbing off.

Microblading

Microblading is a relatively new, manual method of eyebrow embroidery which does not use a normal permanent makeup machine. Microblading is done by using a unique hand instrument with a small row of very fine needles that deposit pigment into the dermis with feathering strokes. The pigment is implanted in the basal membrane, which divides the epidermis from the dermks layer of the skin. This creates very crisp, fine hair strokes that do not blur after healing like expected with a traditional permanent makeup machine.

Eye Treatment

Add on to any service to improve the appearance of tired eyes with the use of the Opal device. The Opal allows serums to penetrate in order to rejuvenate the appearance and texture of the under eye circles.

Airbrush Tanning

HOW DOES SPRAY TANNING WORK?

At Complexions Rx we use a sunless tanning solution containing DHA custom blended for your skin tone and preferences. DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is a sugar based derivative that has been approved by the FDA for over 30 years. It reacts with the outer layers of your skin to create a natural looking tan in 8-12 hours. The immediate color you see is a cosmetic bronzer that mimics the color you will see in the coming hours. Do not be alarmed if you see some color rinse off during your first shower, this is only the bronzing agent.

WILL I TURN ORANGE?

We pride ourselves in giving a natural, sun-kissed glow. The risk of turning orange is almost non-existent using the Infinity Sun system. Our highly trained estheticians will help you choose a level of color that is appropriate for your skin tone.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

  • Women: You may dress down to your comfort level. We provide disposal tops and bottoms, however tanning nude is acceptable.
  • Men: You may wear disposal bottoms that we provide or bring your own bottoms.
  • Our office features a private tanning area where you can feel comfortable undressing.
  • Please note, a small amount of overspray is expected on garments worn during spray application.
  • Bronzing additives usually wash out, but there is always a chance of staining. We also recommend wearing dark, loose fitting clothing after your tan to avoid any transfer of product.

HOW LONG WILL MY CUSTOM SPRAY TAN LAST?

A custom spray tan should last anywhere from 5-10 days. Proper skincare before and after will directly effect the length of your tan. Remember to always exfoliate, avoid lotions and perfumes, and remove makeup before your treatment. After tanning, moisturize and use gentle soaps or body washes.

BEFORE TANNING

If you are tanning for a special event, we recommend scheduling your custom airbrush tan a day or two in advance. Our custom airbrush spray tan solution contains cosmetic bronzers that will give you an immediate, natural-looking color. However, the best spray tan develops post rinse, approxiamtely 8-12 hours after application. We often suggest tanning the evening before an event and waiting until morning to rinse off the bronzing solution if possible.

EXFOLIATE:

It is extremely important to start with a fresh, clean layer of skin. Exfoliating will ensure a longer, more even tan. Please be sure to avoid oil based products, and focus on exfoliating rough body areas, like your knees and elbows. We also recommend avoiding Dove bar soap prior to tanning as it can leave a residue that prevents even application.

SHAVE:

Complexions Rx recommends shaving or waxing at least 24-48 hours prior to getting your custom airbrush tan. Shaving/waxing opens your pores, which we want closed before applying spray tan solution. Shaving or waxing too close to your tan can result in a "blotchy" or "spotty" pore look.

NO MAKEUP OR LOTION:

Please avoid lotions, perfumes, or deodorants on the day of your treatment. Excess oils can prevent absorption during application. If you are tanning your face, you will also want to remove makeup.

AFTER TANNING:

WHAT TO WEAR:

You will be safe to dress immediately after your spray tan. It is recommended that you wear loose-fitting clothing to prevent rubbing, streaking, and uneven wear until after your first shower. Please be aware that the tanning solution contains a cosmetic bronzer that may transfer to your clothing. It is unlikely, but there is a risk of staining. This risk goes away after your first shower.

STAY DRY:

The longer you can wait to rinse off, the better your spray tan will develop. We recommend waiting 8-12 hours before showering or getting wet for the best color. Sweating can also cause streaking in your initial bronze, so please avoid the gym and other strenuous activity until after your first shower.

GENTLE CLEANSING:

Please use a gentle cleanser and avoid exfoliating until you are ready for your next tan. Exfoliating encourages skin renewal and should only be done pre-tan.

MOISTURIZE:

Hydrated skin will hold a spray tan longer. Moisturize twice daily with an alcohol-free lotion. Lotions containing a small amount of DHA will help extend your tan an additional 3-5 days.
