About Microchanneling

Microchanneling with ProCell is the most effective and non-invasive method for an aesthetic expert to enhance the look of fine lines, acne scars safely, and hyperpigmentation, among other problems. 

Microchanneling keeps your skin looking and feeling younger by stimulating your body’s inherent regenerative qualities, which tighten and lift skin while reducing many common skin issues. 

Microchanneling employs supports and can aid your skin’s natural healing abilities instead of most cosmetic procedures, which employ damage and inflammation. 

Consequently, the treatment is more pleasant, there are almost no downtimes, and the skin is happier. So today, give yourself a one-of-a-kind ProCell micro-channeling treatment; your skin will thank you afterward!

Scars on the skin can be reduced or even eliminated using ProCell Microchanneling treatment.

This Therapy can minimize the appearance of stretch marks in the skin and cure and repair acne scars.
You may say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles with this one-of-a-kind therapy.

It can improve your look while not harming your skin.
It promotes the regeneration of a younger, fresher layer of skin, which can help to address uneven skin tone and texture.

For the first 24 to 48 hours after the Therapy, your skin will appear pink or red. However, within 90 minutes of treatment, this may be concealed with high-quality mineral makeup.

In terms of requirements and expectations, everyone is unique. Discuss your expectations with your practitioner and be patient since the finest benefits are generally observed after several sessions. There is no need to be afraid; Micro-Channeling treatments are quite safe, with few adverse effects.

The theory behind skin needling procedures is simple: the process promotes new collagen and blood vessels. As a result, the skin’s texture and suppleness improve, while noticeable imperfections such as stretch marks and pore size are reduced.

 An experienced and certified aesthetician or cosmetic nurse can give the Therapy using a piece of specific equipment.

These minute punctures exfoliate the epidermis and generate microscopic channels. Micro-channeling, as opposed to the usual method of micro-needling, provides for a less abrasive application. 

Contrary to popular belief, skin needling is a minimally invasive and painless therapy for most patients.

The procedure’s micro-channels can kick-start the body’s natural healing reaction. Consequently, your skin may seem less irritated or red, and tissue damage will be healed gradually. In addition, a topical serum is usually administered to assist speed up the healing process and stimulate the regeneration of new, repaired skin.

ProCell Microchanneling, on the other hand, can last anywhere from 2 to 10 years, depending on the client’s age and lifestyle!

The cost of your micro-channeling treatments will vary depending on your skin condition and what is being treated. For example, the average price per session for face and neck is $350; other treatment costs vary depending on the consultation.

ProCell Microchanneling is not harmful, yet it is also unpleasant. However, if you experience discomfort during the treatment, you can request that your skincare specialist use a mild topical numbing lotion.

About Microblading

Unlike tattooing, Microblading is done on the surface of the skin rather than in the deeper layers. This, too, is not permanent, as the color disappears after 18 months.
Because a handheld needle/blade is utilized, hair strokes are considerably more natural and finer than any tattoo – no electrical gadget permeates deep in this process.’ As a result, there are more scratching sounds rather than the buzz of a tattoo gun piercing the skin so deeply.

After your initial treatment, you may be requested to return within a month for a touch-up treatment to guarantee the greatest results. Your artist will provide you with comprehensive information about any touch-up sessions. In addition, your skin type will determine how long your Microblading brows will last. Typically, the effects last 18 to 24 months until the color begins to fade.

Customer is required during the mending process. So while your brows may seem darker than you expected (or desired!) in the first few days, don’t worry. They won’t stay that way.
Once your body begins to recover, you will be on your road to the brows of your dreams. Your brows may seem black at first, then lighter than expected. When the healing procedure is over, you will have the brows you’ve always wanted.

Even if you have oily skin, you can have Microblading. However, the effects may not persist as long as they would on other skin types.
High levels of sebum, or oil, generated by your skin might make it difficult for the pigment to attach to and remain in your skin. Discuss any concerns you have about your skin type with your aesthetician and how long you can anticipate your results to endure.

Most customers note that their brows seem darker in the first few days following the Microblading process, before lightening by 30% to 50% after the pigment scabbing and flaking.
This is completely normal and should not be seen as a reason for concern. You will not have any long-term difficulties or worries if you listen to and follow the aftercare recommendations properly. You’ll love your new brows.

If you are pregnant or nursing, have a history of keloids or hypertrophic scarring, diabetic (requires doctor’s clearance), undergoing Chemotherapy (consult your doctor), have viral infections and diseases, have epilepsy, have a pacemaker (consult your doctor), or major heart problems, have had an organ transplant, have had skin irritations or Psoriasis near the treasury, have had an organ transplant, have had skin irritations or Psoriasis.

We decide on the form of your new brows as a team. We will manage it one step at a time, whether you want to improve the fullness of your natural brows or create a whole new form. Your new shape will initially be applied using a cosmetic pencil so you can see how it will look on your face. We will not begin the operation unless you are completely satisfied with what we have designed.

This is an excellent alternative for individuals suffering from Alopecia, Trichotillomania, or who have had Chemotherapy. Microblading can even repair previous wax catastrophes, over-tweezing, or post-menopausal hair loss.

Booking Policy

Whatever type of appointment you make, please remember that time is a valuable commodity – both for you and the person you’re making the appointment with. 

Nail salon manners are no different from politeness in general. Don’t purposefully waste other people’s time. Nail technicians almost always rely on appointments to make a living, and if you don’t show up, they won’t be paid. 

Some salons may even charge you if you fail to appear. Technicians typically understand if you over-scheduled yourself and can let them know as soon as you realize you won’t be able to make it. The earlier, the better because the tech may replace the gap with someone on the waiting list or a walk-in consumer.

While we recommend making an appointment, walk-ins are accepted; however, this is available upon request, and if we are busy, there may be a waiting period, or you may be required to book an appointment.

Our Paua Beauty Lounge team specialists respect your appointments. We reserve your appointments exclusively for you and ask that you give us 24-hour notice if you need to cancel or reschedule one. Our expert staff will be able to adapt their schedules accordingly, and we may be able to accommodate customers on our waiting list as a result. We recognize that unforeseen difficulties arise and will do our utmost to work with you in the event of an emergency, etc. If last-minute cancellations or “no shows” become a pattern, you will be charged a cancellation fee for the full service. The following is a general breakdown of cancellation fees:

No-shows will be charged the full price of the service.

You waive your right to reschedule when you reserve an appointment within less than 24 hours of service. So please do not schedule expecting to alter your day of service. If you do not show up, you will be charged the full fee and barred from scheduling in the future.

If you do not reschedule your appointment 24 hours in advance and do not show up, you will be charged for the full service. There will be no acceptances or excuses.

Deposits are non-refundable in any case. However, if you reschedule your appointment within 24 hours, your deposit will be used for your rescheduled appointment.

We phone, text, and email to confirm the day and time of your appointment at least 24 hours in advance as a courtesy. If we are unable to contact you and must leave a message, or if we are unable to contact you at all, please realize that you must remember your appointment dates and times to prevent missed appointments and cancellation penalties. If you have any doubts, you are always free to contact and double-check any appointments.

If you are more than 30 minutes late for your appointment, it will be canceled, and you will be charged the entire amount for any services booked.

Suppose you are given less than a 24-hour notice to reschedule. Each appointment will include a $20 courtesy fee.

If you do not show up for your appointment and cancel your card, you will be unable to make a future appointment until you have paid all costs owing from your previous appointment.

If you arrive for your appointment and cancel any service on the day of your appointment, you will be charged the full fee for the service you canceled.

Please arrive for your meeting with a clear schedule. Do not schedule an appointment if you are in a hurry; we will not cancel any services planned for that day because you need to leave; you will be paid for all services booked for that day. Therefore, please allow enough time for your appointment.

We will always do our best to accommodate you if you are running late or delayed in traffic, for example. We’ve all seen it happen! However, your tardiness can disrupt the rest of our employees’ days by causing them to be late for their clients who arrive on schedule. As a result, we’ve established a few broad ground rules for such circumstances. First, clients are usually given a 15-minute grace time. After that, a $20 charge will be applied to your total balance.

We always want you to be completely happy with the services we provide. If you are not completely happy, we ask that you notify us before leaving the facility or that you call us within three days of your treatment so that we may arrange for you to have your services repaired free of charge. Any concerns reported more than three days after the initial appointment date will not be considered immediately as a redo but will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES REFUNDS ARE NOT AVAILABLE.

Gratuity is not included in the purchase of services or salon packages; standard tipping ranges from 15% to 20% but is entirely optional. You can tip the nail technician with cash, cheque, or credit card right after treatment or at the front desk when you check out. A 20% gratuity will be applied to the final price for groups of 5 or more.

Please turn off your mobile phones and other electronic devices as a courtesy to others. Also, please do not use the speakerphone; instead, use headphones or text. Thank you very much.

Specials at Paua Beauty Lounge cannot be combined with any other offer, promotion, or third-party gift vouchers.

Pets Regrettably, no pets are permitted in a salon under California state law.

Please have a look! Please do not make any demands at this salon. We will not allow additional persons in the salon who are not receiving service. We can’t have any more people in the salon because of Covid-19. Please make changes as needed; we’re not interested in fighting or fussing with anyone about the tight standards. We didn’t establish the regulations; we’re just doing our bit by adhering to the governor’s instructions.

Our first concern is the safety of your children. We realize how difficult it is to find time for oneself. We also recognize that your “me time” does not always coincide with your nail sessions. Our policy, however, strongly prevents unaccompanied children from entering the salon. 

If you must bring a young kid into the salon, please offer additional supervision in the form of a nanny. Unfortunately, the salon does not provide childcare. In addition, small children in carriers/strollers are not permitted to be put near service stations or held in the lap. We respectfully urge that ONLY those who are receiving assistance be present in the service areas. 

Older children (12 and older) who can sit quietly and unaccompanied may wait in the designated seating area. While this policy is intended to guarantee that all clients have a peaceful salon experience, it was also designed with your child’s safety in mind. 

Our salon is not child-friendly. Sharp tools, chemicals, and a crowded, congested location contribute to a potentially hazardous setting for young children. Soak and Polish nail experts and staff are committed to offering the best service to all of our clients. We appreciate your adherence to our kid safety policy.
