Overview

Permanent cosmetics, also known as micropigmentation, is a specialised procedure whereby an allergy tested pigment is placed into the dermal layer of the skin. Permanent cosmetics eliminate the need of having to apply, remove and reapply your make-up every day. The resulting effect will give you beautifully natural, enhanced features which are smudge proof and waterproof. The time saving benefits are evident; your features will be perfectly balanced and defined when you wake. There is no need to spend valuable time in the morning balancing brows and lip lines. Eyeliners that won’t run, lip lines that won’t smudge or fade, brows that define and open the eyes. These are just a few of the benefits of permanent cosmetics. Who would benefit from micropigmentation? Professionals with little time to apply a finished make-up. Those with allergies to conventional cosmetics. Those who seek a natural enhancement without using make-up. Those with oily skin who tend to shed make-up easily. Those with hair lose due to alopecia. People with scaring disrupting hair growth or lip definition.

Eyebrows

March 19, 2010 Leave a comment

Your brows are the frame for your eyes and face. When properly designed the brows can lift the eye area giving a more youthful appearance.

If your eyebrows are sparse from tweezing or alopecia, or if your brows are naturally blonde or light in colour you can now enjoy the satisfaction of defined and balanced eyebrows.

Eyebrow Definition

This procedure creates a consistant definition and and mimics the appearance of pencilled brows. The method is effective for those with thin brows or to boost an established shape.

Eyebrow Hair Simulation

Combinations of colour are blended and applied to the brow area in very fine strokes. Utilising this method will give the eyebrows a three-dimensional effect with the appearance of hair simulation.

Eye Liner

A fine, soft and natural line can be created to add depth of colour or definition to the eyes. Your lashes will appear to be thicker and more balanced. Colour and thickness can be individualised and make-up can be applied over the eyeliner for a more enhanced evening look.

Eyelash Enhancement

This procedure differs from an eyeliner procedure in that rather than creating a consistent line, a serices of single pigment implants are made along the base of each individual eyelash root. The resulting effect will give a very subtle and natural enhancement, creating and impression of thicker lash growth.

Lip Lines

This procedure is perfect for reshaping uneven lips and for making the lips appear larger and fuller. It also has the benefit of preventing lipstick from bleeding. The pigmentation covers scars and can give your lips a natural or more dramatic blend of colour enhancement with colour and definition that lasts all day, every day.

Lip Line

The procedure for those seeking a defined edge to their lips, in order to add strength to a shape that is already present or to add a bolder colour.

Lip Blend

This procedure is a more advanced version of the lip line. The pigment colour is blended further into the lip vermillion to produce a softer transition of definition. This method is essensial for making thin lips appear realistically fuller.

FAQ?

March 19, 2010 Comments off

Are the procedures painful?

There is usually minimal discomfort for most people; it is generally comparable to waxing or tweezing. Topical anaesthetics are used to reduce any further discomfort and limit any post procedural swelling.

How long with the results last?

The duration of results will vary according to the individual, area of pigment placement, strength of definition and saturation of pigments used. The expectation os between two and five years, during which time the pigment will gradually soften until it fades completely. At this point you can choose to return for a reapplication or can resume make-up application.

Are permanent cosmetics safe? Do you use sterile equipment?

Safety and hygiene are the paramount priorities in this type of procedure. At all times the strictest sterilisation and hygiene procedures are adhered to. Only brand new sterile needles and equipment will be used. These will be opened in front of you and everything disposed of after each client. The pigments and equipment used in these procedures have been specifcially designed for the purpose of micropigmentation and are manufactured to exacting standards.

Who decides on the shape and colour to be applied? What if styles change?

You do. There is a vast range of colours, and virtually any colour can be mixed to compliment your natural skin tones. The shape and colour is always drawn in for your approval prior to applying the semi-permanent colour. If you are unsure of what will suit you then your technician will be able to advise you. As professional technicians we will never apply a shape that is too ‘fashion influenced’. All colours are custom blended to compliment your skin tone, eye and hair colour, resulting in a soft and natural appearance.

Is it expensive?

Not if you look at the long-term cost and effect. It may initially cost more than a cosmetics bill, but is little compared to three to five years of daily make-up expenses. Also, unlike other facial procedures, micropigmentation provides a lasting benefit, not to mention the time saving element, which could well prove to be wor the cost alone.

Post procedural information

You can resume most of your normal activities immediately after any of the procedures. In some cases there may be a little redness or swelling of the treatment area, but this will subside quickly.

The treatment area will take between five and seven days to heal, depending on procedure. You will be given a detailed after care leaflet and instructions after any procedure.
