Have you heard about the newest craze at the moment which is Semi- Permanent Make-up? May sound slightly farfetched but there are procedures out there, that can make this happen. Imagine being able to roll out of bed in the morning, and the only thing you have to worry about is your hair. Sounds too good to be true right?
Wrong! Surgeons can carefully apply permanent pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. The pigment that is used is made up of natural iron oxide. It is classed as a hypo- allergenic and has no fragrances, emollients or any other ingredients added. Once you have chosen the correct shade for your skin, it will then be implanted into the lower layers of your skin. It can remain here for up to 5 years. The pigments that are used are 100% non-reactive and almost limitless in colours on offer. This new-age make-up has been tested and is perfectly safe. It has been approved by many doctors. Many respected beauty writers have written about it in a positive light.
Procedures on offer:
- Eyeliner & Eyelash Enhancement: To add depth and definition to your eyes a fine, soft and natural line can be created. This will make your eye lashes actually appear thicker. To customise the look the colour and thickness of the line can be individualised. Your own make-up can be applied over the eyeliner for a more dramatic look.
- Eyebrows: Eyebrows frame your face and eyes, and when designed correctly it can lift the eyes to give a more youthful appearance. Cheekbones can appear more prominent and it can change the overall look of your nose. If you have tweezed away your eyebrows, or they are less prominent from shaving or alopecia, you can enjoy the look of natural semi-permanent eyebrows. If your eyebrows are naturally blonde or a light colour then this procedure is the best treatment for you.
- Lipliner: This can reshape uneven lips and can make them look larger and fuller. It also can help prevent lipstick from smudging, and can cover almost any scar. It will give your lips a natural enhancement with colour that will last all day (every day).
How long will it last:
How long it will last will differ from person to person, but it will commonly last for between 2 and 5 years.
Will it hurt?
This procedure does not normally hurt and there is minimal discomfort. Anaesthetic is used to reduce the discomfort and will help with relaxation. Some patients claim they feel nothing except for a prickly sensation.
