PERMANENT MAKE UP
What is Permanent Make Up?
Permanent make up is one of a few descriptions for ink embedded into the dermis of the skin that resembles freshly & professionally applied topical make up. It is also referred to as semi permanent make up & tattooed make up.
Whilst it is true that the ink will fade over time many variables affect how quickly to what degree it will fade. Permanent make up prevents missleading a client as it is impossible to guarantee that over time the embedded ink will disappear completely.
How quickly your skin rejuvenates.
Lifestyle including outdoor activities exposed to sun & other elements.
Skin care routine & beauty treatments.
Immune response & or medications.
A tattoo can mimic eyeliner or lipstick, or it can darken and create the appearance of thicker eyebrows. The other popular terms are referring to the technique used & style in which the treatment is performed.
Microblading uses a hand tool not a machine & is used primarily to create hair simulation, only used for eyebrows. It can replicate missing or sparse hair, add density of colour, width or height to client's brow. I use Tina Davies microblades as detailed here.
A tattoo machine can also be used for permanent make up brow procedures; more commonly but not exclusively the machine wand creates powder shaded brows, a result called ombre or combination brows. A combination brow commonly has stroke work (hair simulation or feathering) plus shaded areas for density of colour. This is generally a border, dynamic resulting appearance. I will ascertain your goal & preferences in order to create your bespoke brows based on your skin type & desired result. All elements will be discussed, guided & mutually agreed upon.
A machine is always used for permanent lip colour/blushing, lip contouring or lip liner & fine or bold eyeliner. Other terms include lash enhancement which is a fine liner at the base of the lashes resulting in a subtle but effective method to make lashes appear fuller in an eye opening style. Alternatively different thickness eye liner can be created & small flick detail in the outer corner of the eye if desired. The Microbeau Flux Mini tattoo machine is one of the industry leading tools & my go to preferred tattoo wand. This machine paired with Tina Davis needle cartridges guarantees the desired flawless results I demand with every treatment.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Your first appointment will take 2 hours. Creating a shape that you love, one that is timeless & bespoke to you is paramount before the first treatment. Brow mapping will be performed measuring the contours of your face & creating brows that are geometrically correct for the contours of your face. At the stage any adjustments to balance the brows & correct symmetry will be designed & mutually agreed.
Once the treatment commences it takes between 60 - 90 mins. Six to eight weeks later the second session is performed in order to tweak & perfect the colour & shape is necessary, this appointment generally takes 90 mins.
