Semi Permanent Makeup

Semi Permanent makeup is a type of cosmetic tattooing that uses pharmaceutical grade pigments applied to the skin.  The aim of the treatment is to give a natural make up appearance that perfectly complements your skin tone using the right combination of pigments to enhance your natural features.  The makeup can be used to frame the face and give fuller more defined eyebrows.  It can be used on the eyelids as eye liner to enhance the natural eye line.  It is also used on the lips add colour to the lips and on the lip line to achieve fuller more defined lips.  Our products are a high quality brand leader in the industry.

Benefits of Semi Permanent Make up

Semi permanent makeup is increasingly being used by both men and women who want to enhance their appearance and look great all the time without having to carry around and regularly apply makeup. It can be used to add eyebrows/liner when there is a lack of hair e.g. alopecia, thinning of hair etc.  Semi permanent makeup saves you time by eliminating the need to apply makeup every morning, you can wake up every morning looking fresh faced and have that “get out of bed make up” look. No more smudging after swimming, raining, or after working out at the gym.

What happens during the procedure?

During consultation our trained technician will evaluate your skin tone and natural features and together you will select the most suitable pigments for you.  Once the shape, design and colour have all been agreed upon and photographed, the pigment is then carefully implanted into the skin during Procedure 1.  Depending upon the size of the area, it will take about 45-90 minutes. Procedure 2 is completed 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment, to check
healing, pigmentation and perfect.

How Long Does it Last?

The treatment is safe and is carried out with the highest hygiene standards.  A topical anaesthetic will be used to numb the area before the procedure. It’s no more painful than having your eyebrows tweezed. The permanent make up could last two years  but may last as long as seven years.  It is very difficult to be more definite on a time frame as each & every client's skin is different, and will act differently, however the average is 3 years.  As the colour will gradually fade, a
retouch treatment is recommended every 12 – 18 months to keep your make-up looking as good as new.

Aftercare Advice

PRE-TREATMENT

A patch test is required 24-48hrs before procedure.

Avoid drinking coffee, taking ibuprofen, aspirin (unless medically advised) or alcohol the night before.  You will not be able to apply makeup for 24hrs after your treatment, then we strongly recommend you use new products to avoid bacterial contamination.  Ideally you should not visit the gym, sauna, jacuzzi or swim for 24hrs.  Any tweezing, waxing, tinting, eyelash curling should be done 48hrs prior to treatment and 1 week post procedure.

Eyeliner - you should not wear eyelash extensions, please remove them before arriving.  If you wear contact lenses you will need to bring glasses to wear immediately after your treatment.

Lips - If yu are prone to coldsores it is likely you will have an outbreak.  Take necessary precautions to avoid.

 

ON THE DAY OF YOUR TREATMENT - You must be in good health.  Please eat before you visit, this will help maintain blood sugar levels.  You will be required to complete a Consent & Treatment forms and you will be photographed before & after the procedure.  These will be held securely by your Technician.

POST TREATMENT - Aftercare is the key.  If you keep the area clean and do not pick any scabbing that may occur, your procedure will heal quickly and look beautiful.

You may notice whiteness/blanching around the area, this is quite normal and will subside in a few hours.  Do not allow water to go directly onto the treated area - if it does, please blot dry with clean gauze - do not wipe/rub.

The area may still be numb and maybe slightly swollen.  The numbing will subside within a few hours, the swelling should subside within 2 days.

In some cases there may be bruising.  This should last no longer than 1 week.  If the area weeps, you can gently blot the area with tissue to remove moisture.  Do not rub.

If you are given aftercare ointment for eyebrows or lips use sparingly.

Apply 1-3 times a day with clean hands and a cotton bud.  If your lips feel dry, apply more frequently but do not over use.  Over use may affect pigment retention.

DO NOT PICK OR PULL AT THE AREA - IT MAY RESULT IN INFECTIONS OR PIGMENT LOSS

THESE ARE THE HEALING STAGES:

HEAL- as soon as your procedure is finished your body will start to heal.  The skin will close and you may see a thin scab which protects the area whilst healing.

PEEL - after a few days the scab will fall away and you will see pigment

FADE - you will see a lighter hue of implanted colour.  This colour will change over 4/6 weeks.  In some cases healed lip colour will not be seen for up to 3 months.  In some cases eyeliner can disappewar entirely during this phase.

THIS IS A TWO STAGE PROCEDURE

NO.1 - THE BASECOAT

NO.2 - THE PERFECTING

Your procedure is not deemed complete until you have had both treatments.  Your second procedure can be booked 4-6 weeks after the first.

Tips for keeping your procedure looking fab!

1. consider using waterproof, total sunblock, sun exposure can fade your colour

2. strong chemicals or glycolic acid peels of any kind may cause pigment to lighten

3. boost your colour 12-18 months following the second visit

PLEASE REMEMBER:

Giving blood - The REd cross advise against giving blood for 4 months following your treatment

MRI Scans - Please inform your Radiologist that you have had micropigmentation.  It has been known for the pigment to show up on a scan.  You may also experience tingling.

Laser - Do not allow laser to hit the skin near the pigmented area.  You must inform the laser technician who should cover the area as a precaution.  Lack of care could cause the pigment to turn black.
