Enhance your natural beauty!
Look fresher, younger and more polished!
Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which deposits pigment beneath the surface of the skin to produce the “illusion” of makeup, such as eyeliner, lips and eyebrows. Permanent make-up, (also known as cosmetic tattooing, dermapigmentation, micropigmentation), is a fast-growing part of the beauty industry appealing to the young right as well as the more mature.
Whether you’re looking for a soft, natural enhancement or a bolder appearance the final decision is up to you. Permanent make-up is especially appealing to those who may not be able to wear traditional cosmetics due to allergies or sensitivities, active people who want to look their best for sports activities such as swimming, outdoor activities, aerobics, and for all those who don’t want to have to worry about sweating off or reapplying cosmetics.
Permanent cosmetics also benefit the visually impaired who may have difficulty applying traditional makeup, others who suffer from conditions such as arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, MS, stroke survivors and people who just don’t have the time or can’t be bothered to spend time applying and/or refreshing their makeup throughout the day or evening.
Permanent Make-up is individually customized to highlight the natural contours and ensures that your look is perfect and ready for any situation around the clock!
Things to be aware of when scheduling permanent make-up procedures
Often the tattooed colour is not perfect immediately after the initial procedure heals. Permanent cosmetic procedures are a process and at least one follow-up to the initial treatment should be scheduled. It is recommended that any necessary touch-up detail work appointment should be completed no sooner that 4 weeks, with the minimum required time for lips 6 weeks. Lips have a different rate of healing. Please keep in mind that the healing process varies from client to client but these are good minimum guidelines to keep in mind.
While eyebrows may show little side effects, eyeliner and lips may show slight to moderate swelling post procedure. This varies depending on the amount of work performed. eg. A lip liner or blended lip liner will show less after effects than that of a full lip colour. Also, some people swell more from minor skin infractions than others. During the procedure, there may be some minor bleeding. Again, this is client specific and may not be the case with all clients.
Many people take blood thinners on a daily basis so some slight bleeding would be expected. Others show little or no signs of bleeding. Bruising is rare but again, if a person is on blood thinners, bruising could occur. What is seen more often is that eyebrows rarely if ever produce any bruising; minor bruising during eyeliner procedures is possible if the skin being tattooed is very thin and close to the vascular system. This also applies to lip procedures in the event the client is more mature. If bruising does occur, typically it is minor and subsides in a few days. There is usually some tenderness for a few days. The colour is much darker than you may expect for the first six to ten days but subsides during the healing process.
Other less often reported side effects are difficult to determine due to the individuality of each person’s biological system. This is why professional permanent cosmetic technicians require a client history profile be filled out to assess different factors that may contribute to your experience after the tattooing procedure has been completed.
Please be sure to advise your technician of any underlying health concerns or medications as this must be taken into consideration when considering permanent make-up procedures.
