SPONSORED CONTENT BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT SPONSORED CONTENT F A New World of Beauty at Affordable Prices or Terri Bell, becoming a licensed aesthetician was a dream achieved later in life. A former paralegal, Bell’s life changed when her father passed away from cancer. “I took a leave of absence from my job to be with him and I realized, during that time we spent together, that life’s too short. You should wake up every day and be happy. Always into beauty, I decided to pursue my passion—so I went back to school, and opened Purefection Beauty Bar in May,” she explained. Since then, Bell has been providing the newest beauty trends like microblading and microneedling at prices that are affordable to everyone. “This is a passion for me. It isn’t work for me; I love it every day. It’s part of my life,” Bell said. “So I keep my prices reasonable because I love helping people look and feel good. I keep my microblading price at $250, for example, because people can afford it. I love providing the service, so it’s a win-win for everyone.” Microblading places pigments into the skin around the eyebrows manually with a blade comprised of a row of tiny needles rather than with a machine. It mimics natural hair growth patterns and gives a more natural effect rather than traditional solid eyebrow tattooing done with a machine. Microneedling, which is extremely popular in big cities, is an alternative for clients who want to keep a youthful appearance without the use of injections like Botox and fillers. This cutting-edge technology pushes hydration into the dermal layer of the skin and offers maximum collagen stimulation. This treatment is perfect for improving the appearance of fine lines, acne scarring, sun damage and large pores, and improves the skin’s overall appearance. Each session lasts approximately 45 minutes and four to six sessions are recommended for the complete effect. Bell is a certified Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring Practitioner, providing an all-natural hair removal process that epilates hair at the roots without burning or pain, or causing ingrown hairs. Purefection is one of the few places around that offers the service. And, if you want a massage to top off your day of beauty, Bell brought in therapeutic massage therapist Pam Wolinski, who she worked with previously at Spa and Salon at Southpointe. “Our clients love Pam because she’s not just a massage therapist. Her therapeutic massage training allows her to help people who have had injuries in the past that continue to aggravate them,” Bell said.
