Custom Products

How long does it take to make a custom lipstick?


From blending, mixing, molding and packaging the average custom lipstick takes around only 30 minutes to make! This may vary depending on the number of custom products you choose to create during a given session.




My favorite lipstick has been discontinued. Can you match it?


The short answer is YES! The long answer is if you bring a product to be matched, we cacn create a lipstick color that is nearly indistinguishable from the original. That beind said, every manufacturer has their own formulation which means the feel, smell and perfomance of their products are unique. Conjure Cosmetic Custom Lipsticks are not different.

Advanced Treatments

What is the downtime for a Chemical Peel? What will my face look like?


We've all seen the pictures around the internet of red, raw and very painful looking after effects of chemical peels. Truth is there is little to no downtime and most people will not even be able to tell you have had a peel! The Chemical Peels used in our services are superficial peels that gently exfoliate the top layers of epidermis to reveal the healthy skin underneath. You may experience light to moderate flaking for 3-7 days depending on the health of your skin prior to your peel. The healthier the skin is, the less flaking you will experience! It is very important that you follow the pre and post procedure product recommendations provided by your esthetician. We usually ask that you start prepping for the treatment 10-14 days before your appointment. This will ensure that you get the best results possible for your Chemical Peel sessions. Your esthetician will suggest a series of peels depending on the health of your skin to target your areas of concern as well as a maintenance program. During a Modified Jessner's solution peel you may experience frosting which will appear as white crystals. This is a normal occurence due to the Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) in the formula. In very rare cases mild to moderate Periorbital edema (puffy/swollen eyes) may occur as a side effect of the peel. Do not apply ice to the area, as superficial freezing will only harm the area more. Instead, apply a cool cloth to the eye area and sleep with the head slightly elevated to help reduce swelling.




What will an Enzyme or Chemical Peel feel like when applied?


Everyone is different! While some people will feel a slight to moderate tingle, most clients will feel little to no discomfort. Your esthetician will evaluate your sensitivity prior to the peel which allows them to keep you comfortable during the application process. The Blueberry, Pomegrante and Pumphin-Orange Enzyme Peels have a slightly higher tingle or heat factor. If at any point in time your sensitivity level goes above the discussed level between you and your esthetician, let them know immediately and they will take measures to decrease the sensitivity and bring you back to a comfortable level.




What is the aftercare for an Enzyme or Chemical Peel?


Our esthetician is fully trained and certified in chemical peels. Although we take every precaution to avoid unfavorable effects or results, on rare cases the may still happen. That's why it is very important and we highly advise you to be as truthful and transparent on your client intake form as possible. Certain conditions and medication greatly affect the outcome of the chemical peel. The DO NOT list: (at minimum for the first 48 hours post peel) -DO NOT go in the sun -DO NOT apply ice or ice water to the area of treatment -DO NOT put face directly into a hot shower spray -DO NOT use hot tubs, steam room or sauna -DO NOT go swimming -DO NOT participate in activities that cause excessive perspiration -DO NOT use loofahs or other means of mechanical exfoliation face -DO NOT direct hair dryer onto the treated area -DO NOT pick or pull at flaking skin as it may be attached to healthy skin below The DO list: -DO stay cool! Internal or thermal heat can cause hyperpigmentation and/or water blisters -DO wear a broad spectrum SPF everyday -DO follow your esthetician's recommendations for home regimen. Up to 60% of results are based on home regimen!




Should I schedule an Enzyme Peel or Chemical Peel? What is the difference?


Both Enzyme Peels and Chemical Peels are forms of chemical exfoliation that break down dead skin cells to reveal healthy skin underneath. Enzymes are typically found in plants and fruits and provide a very superficial peel to the outermost layers of the epidermis. Chemical Peels are made of acids derived from sources like sugar, milk, almond and apple and may penetrate into the deeper layers of the epidermis for a more aggressive exfoliation. Typically Enzymes do not produce any peeling, with the exception of the Pumpkin-Orange peel. Chemical Peels may cause flaking after the procedure. (It is very important that you let us know on your client intake form of any allergies you may have as some products may cause a reaction) If you have not had a Chemical Peel we strongly suggest for you to come in for an Enzyme Peel first. This allows us to fully assess your skin's condition, concern areas and sensitivity to all types of chemical exfoliation and recommend the proper regimen.




I have been on Accutane or Isotrenoin. Can I schedule a peel?


You must stop using these medications at least 6 months before the skin is able to handle a peel. Performing a peel while on these medications will cause more damage and harm due to the thinning of the skin from the medication.




Why are my dark spots getting darker after my Chemical Peel?


Chemical peels are frequently used for hyperpigmentation in areas of the skin. The peels will gradually remove the surface layers of skin and bring the pigmentation to the surface of the skin which results in the areas appearing darker. Once the pigmentation is brought to the surface, it will start to lighten with each subsequent peel session as it is removed with the surface layers of the skin. It is a gentle and progressive approach instead of an aggressive approach which will keep inflammation to a minimum and provide excellent results with less damage and discomfort to your skin.




Which type of Chemical Peels do you use?


We use PCA Skin Chemical Peels which are a unique blend of acids that self-neutralize due to the lipid and water content within the skin. They are safe for all Fitzpatrick skin types and sensitive skin. We use Modified Jessner's solution and Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) depending on skin type and skin concerns. Your esthetician will evaluate your client intake form and perform a skin analysis to determine which peel is best for you to achieve your goals.




What is an Oxygen Infusion Facial?


An Oxygen Infusion Facial is an excellent way to revitalize the skin. It nourishes and promotes collagen production and growth. A highly concentrated air stream of oxygen is applied to the skin after hyaluronic acid serum to improve blood circulation giving the skin a plump, youthful glow.




What is Dermaplaning? What is the difference between Dermaplane and Dermaplane Deluxe?


Dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation using a sterile surgical scalpel to remove vellus hair, or peach fuzz, and dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. The skin is cleansed and prepped before planing and followed by a hydrating facial mask, moisturizer and sunprotection. An enzyme mask and hydrojelly mask are included in the Dermaplane Deluxe service to enhance the level of exfoliation and restore the skin's moisture to reveal a healthy glow. Contrary to popular belief, dermaplaning will not make the vellus hair grow back thicker or darker as it is removed at surface level and not from deep within the follicle.




What is a Detoxifying Pore Treatment?


The Detoxifying Pore Treatment gives instant results, as well as long-term skin-clarifying benefits by clearing pores and reducing sebum (oil) production. The special time-released AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) blend will gently boost skin exfoliation to reveal smoother skin with the minimized appearance of pores. For clearing of deeper congested pores we recommend 2-3 subsequent treatments.

The "Best. Facial. Ever." The Rezenerate NanoFacial, or Infuse-ZEN, reduces fine lines and leaves your skin feeling & looking younger.

What is a 24K Glow Facial?

Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C are paired with 24K Gold to leave the skin with a healthy inner natural glow! If you are allergic to metals, especially gold, we do not suggest this facial since the gold used is pure 24K gold.





Waxing

How long does my hair need to be?


Hair needs to be 1/4 inch long but no longer that 1/2 inch long. Shorter hair growth will not be grabbed by the wax and longer hair growth results in a more uncomfortable experience.




How often do I need to get waxed?


It depends on the area and personal hair growth cycle, but usually an appointment 4 weeks after is recommended. Waxing regularly will give you better results and possibly less hair growth for a longer period of time.




What are the contraindications for waxing?


We can not provide a waxing service if you: - are currently or have used Accutane or Isotretinoin in the past 6 months - are taking antibiotics or acne medication - have any open lesions or active Herpes breakouts - have had a chemical peel or aggressive exfoliation in the past 7 days - have sunburn or windburn on the waxing area - have eczema, psoriasis, rosacea on waxing area - have skin tags or moles in the waxing area - have used Retinol in the past 48 hours - have been in a tanning bed in the past 24 hours - have had laser skin resurfacing in the past 12 months - have had a medium-deep peel done by a physician in the past 2 years




What is the aftercare for waxing?


It is very important to keep the waxed area clean, avoid heat and friction for the first 24-48 hours. -Avoid hot baths or showers, saunas, hot tubs, massages for 24 hours -No tanning or sunbathing for 48 hours -No sport, gym or excercise that causes excessive perspiration -Avoid touching the waxed area with unwashed hands -Wear clean, loose fitting clothing over waxed area -Moisturize every day -Exfoliate 2-3 times a week to avoid ingrown hair (not before 24 hours after service) -Do not apply deodorant to waxed underarms for 24 hours




What type of wax do you use?


We use both soft wax and hard wax. Soft wax, or strip wax, is applied to the skin then pressed with a paper strip to be removed. Soft wax adheres to the hair and skin and is for all parts of the face and body, especially larger areas. Hard wax is applied to the skin and hardens to be removed. Hard wax is a great option for anyone with sensitive skin because it adheres to the hair and not the skin. A patch test is always recommended for anyone with sensitive skin.





Lash Services

What is a Lash Lift? Should I get them tinted at the same time?


A Lash Lift is a much like a perm but uses solutions that are safe for the eye area. It lifts and curls the natural lash from root to tip and gives an eye opening appearance. The esthetician adheres the lashes to a silicone rod then applies lifting and setting solutions to set the curl. A lash tint service is often paired with a lash lift to enhance and make the lashes stand out more!




How long does a Lash Lift last?


A lash lift will typically last for the duration of your personal lash growth cycle which is 4-6 weeks. Naturally heavy or thick lashes may slightly relax due to the weight of the lashes. Using products recommended by your esthetician will ensure the longevity of the results.




What is the aftercare for a Lash Lift and/or Tint?


Your esthetician will recommend at home treatments to help keep lashes conditioned and nourished between lifts. Lash lifts are recommended every 4-6 weeks. -Avoid moisture excess steam and water for the first 24 hours -Do not rub or play with lashes -Do not use shampoos, conditioners, makeup, creams, serums or oils on lashes or around eye area for first 24 hours -Avoid using strong eye makeup remover for first 48 hours -Try sleeping on your back for the first night to avoid the lashes dropping on outer corner -Avoid sun/UV light as it can cause tint to fade

What is Cupping Massage?
