Benefits of semi permanent make up
Semi permanent makeup is increasingly being used by both men and women who want to enhance their natural beauty and look great all the time without having to carry around and regularly apply makeup. 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.
It is also used by sports men and women, as there is no smudging after swimming, raining, or after working out at the gym. It is also used by people with disabilities such as neurological weakness or tremor who may find it difficult to apply makeup evenly every day. Semi permanent make up can be applied to thicken the eyebrows in those people with medical conditions such as alopecia resulting in thinning hair or hair loss on their eyebrows. Finally it can be used in people with scarring of the lip line or eyebrow to reduce the appearance of the scar.
What happens during the procedure?
Our Highly trained technician will evaluate the most suitable pigments for you, taking into consideration your skin tone and personality. She will create the desired shape using a conventional make-up pencil. Once the shape, design and colour have all been agreed upon and photographed, the pigment will be carefully implanted into the skin.
Depending upon the size of the area, the procedure itself will take about an hour and a half, and a complimentary retouch procedure is usually required 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment.
How long does it last?
Permanent cosmetics sit somewhere in between semi- permanent and permanent; over the years the colour will fade. The longevity is dependent upon certain factors, but you can expect your permanent make-up to last 2 – 7 years, the average is 3 years. Because the colour will gradually fade, a retouch treatment is recommended every 12 – 18 months to keep your make-up looking as good as new.
Does it hurt?
It’s no more painful than having your eyebrows tweezed. A topical anaesthetic cream will be used to numb the area before the procedure.
What is the recovery time?
Normal activities can be resumed immediately, there may be some swelling and redness but this generally subsides within 24 to 48 hours. As the skin heals, the treated area will form a protective crust over the forthcoming days and the final healed result of the treatment will be about 30-40% lighter than the immediate result.
A minimum of 4-6 weeks rest between treatments is required to ensure the skin is fully healed, both on the surface and below.
