why we do not offer acrylic nails?

December 19, 2018

Many women head to the salon for artificial nails for their convenience and beauty. The process requires a manicurist to apply artificial nail tips, using both a liquid and powder acrylic to bond the tips to your natural nails. Despite the attractiveness of acrylic nails, however, several toxins lurking in artificial nails can pose a risk to your health.


Chemicals

While acrylic nails look pretty, they contain several chemicals that can pose a health risk. Although the FDA banned the chemical methyl methacrylate, or MMA, in acrylic nail solutions, some nail salons still use it because of poor regulation in the industry. MMA is known to cause respiratory problems, eye and skin irritation and neurological issues.


Precautions

Whether you are a frequent wearer of acrylic nails or only get them for special occasions, be aware of the potential risks to not only to your natural nails, but to your overall health as well. To avoid permanently damaging your natural nails, make sure to have your acrylics removed by a professional nail technician at a reputable salon. Additionally, make sure your technician properly sterilizes all tools and implements to avoid a potential infection. Finally, limit your exposure to toxic chemicals found in acrylic nails by wearing them infrequently. 


We had discontinued acrylic nail services from our family businesses over ten years ago to maintain a healthier choice of spa life.

the "difference" between micropigmentation & tattoo

December 19, 2018

Micropigmentation ink is blended carefully to closely match your skin tone and your hair color. While a traditional tattoo would be created to stand out, micropigmentation is meant to blend in and look natural.

Micropigmentation Is Not Permanent. There is less of a risk when you invest in micropigmentation due to the fact that the treatments are not completely permanent. It is considered semi-permanent and will often last somewhere between three and six years, depending on your body and the amount of sun your skin is exposed to.

You should understand that you will need to invest in a bit of time when you opt for scalp Micropigmentation. You will often require about three sessions in total. Your professional will start conservatively so the color can be evaluated.

After the first session, a darker colored ink will be used, and the third appointment will allow the professional to add the finishing touches to ensure that the pigmentation looks natural. With Scalp Micropigmentation, if the process is completed in stages, then the appearance will appear 3D with shadowing that mimics natural hairs.

Traditional tattoo ink contains "very high" heavy metals. It is not recommended for anyone who had undergone chemotherapy, treating scars and stretchmarks or skin condition such as Vitiligo. Scars and stretchmarks are commonly considered skin damages due to breakage or stretching of the skin, depositing traditional tattoo ink may cause more skin damage.

Micropigmentation or Traditional Tattoo for scars and stretchmarks are not recommended for any clients with the Fitzpatrick scale of I-II  to avoid any "white ink" complications and cause more skin damages.

Vitiligo is a skin condition where the pigment cells of the skin, melanocytes, are destroyed in certain areas. Symptoms and signs of vitiligo include loss of skin color in the form of depigmented, or white, patches of skin in any location on the body. It's a hit and miss if the skin in those areas will acknowledge any treatments of Micropigmentation or Traditional Tattoo. There is absolutely no one that can guarantee you results. 


Trésor will give all clients with vitiligo a complimentary first session to see if their skin will acknowledge micropigmentatin colour.
