semi permanent make-up
Semi Permanent Make-Up with its advanced new techniques and procedures will enhance your natural beauty and give your features shape and definition without ever having to visit your make-up bag.
Also known as Micropigmentation, it is the term used for applying coloured pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. The procedure is completely safe and effective and used for a variety of semi-permanent cosmetic enhancements such as eyebrows, eyeliner and lip liners.
Women of all ages are experiencing the difference micropigmentation can make. After just one procedure you can have stunning smudge free make-up that will last for several years.
Anyone who requires emphasis of the 'brows' will love this procedure and the time saved never having to pencil again. Once a micropigmentation procedure is complete you can swim, partake in sporting activities or just lie in the sun without the worry of ever again loosing your 'brows'. Choose between a soft textured look or hair simulation. If you have no brow hair, or sparse brows due to over plucking the difference balanced brows can make is amazing.
eyeliner and eyelash enhancement
Make the most of your eyes with micropigmentation. From subtle to dramatic, eyelash enhancement or eyeliner can dramatically define eyes, creating great looks that are long lasting and always perfect.
lip liner and full colour
For a truly subtle and beautiful cosmetic effect, micropigmentation is an excellent way of enhancing the shape and colour of your lips. With skilled application, lips can look fuller and more shapely. This fabulous procedure can help reduce lipstick bleed, ensuring that you have perfect lips at all times. Full lip colour is also available in a subtle shade to crisp, correct or redefine lips. For a more striking effect stronger colour can be applied.
frequently asked questions about semi permanent make-up
How long with the make-up last?
Although pigment molecules stay in the skin indefinitely the colour remains visible for several years. This is variable depending upon the client's age, skin type, colour choice and lifestyle.
Is the procedure painful?
Every client is different but with advanced new equipment and techniques discomfort is minimal.
Do I have a choice on placement and colour?
Definitely. The client is in control every step of the way from desired shape to colour selection.
How long will it take?
You should allow a minimum of 1½ hours for a new procedure.
What happens after the procedure?
Immediately post procedure the area treated may appear swollen and the colour will appear darker and more intense. This will last for several days. Complete healing can take up to six weeks for the pigment to mature in the skin and the true colour to emerge.
What other procedures are available?
Micropigmentation is extensively used in the medical profession for CPC work; areola restoration, scar camouflage, burns patients and cleft lip reconstruction. Ask your technician for further information.
