How do I choose the right technician for me

 

 

With so many technicians out there using various methods, each one charging a different fee from the next and all for the same procedure, you would be forgiven for feeling a little confused.  Before you commit yourself to a technician always ask if the individual has been professionally trained and passed an examination enabling her/him to obtain insurance to cover any eventualities that may arise from the procedure.  As the involvement of needles carries a risk of contamination, always verify that only disposable needles and pigment containers are used. Enquire also if the technician will use a suitable anaesthetic for your comfort. Avoid those who will try to inject you with local anaesthetic as only a trained nurse is qualified to do so.  Finally, ask to see examples of their previous work so you can actually see what kind of results they can produce: remember pictures speak louder than words. Many websites will not display pictures of both completed brows; this can be misleading as the most tricky part of such a procedure is to make them both as alike and as symmetrical as possible.

What is Semi Permanent Makeup? (9)

Will the treatment look natural?

I will always advise our clients to select natural-looking enhancements. The enhancements should not be conspicuous – they should be in harmony with your features, skin type and eye colour. People should notice the improvement in appearance without being aware of your treatment.

There is a design stage before Your skin is broken, this is an ideal opportunity to discuss Your concerns and expectations.

About Semi Permanent Makeup

What is Semi Permanent Makeup?

What is Semi Permanent Makeup?

Semi-permanent make up, as the name suggests, is make up that, while not exactly permanent will not smudge or smear either.  Also known as micro-pigmentation or permanent make up, the procedures involve inserting pigment into the dermal (shallow) layer of the skin, bringing shape and definition to the brows, eyes and lips thus erasing the need for conventional make-up

How many treatments are needed?

Two treatments are usually needed, at least three weeks apart. Sometimes just one treatment is sufficient. With most procedures, the colour fades dramatically after one week. For the second treatment, the practitioner gauges the colour retention and adds the required amount of pigment.

Will the treatment look natural?

I will always advise our clients to select natural-looking enhancements. The enhancements should not be conspicuous – they should be in harmony with your features, skin type and eye colour. People should notice the improvement in appearance without being aware of your treatment.

There is a design stage before Your skin is broken, this is an ideal opportunity to discuss Your concerns and expectations.

Am I suitable for this treatment?

Most people are able to have permanent make up treatments. At your free consultation, Laura will discuss the procedure in detail with you. This is your opportunity to ask as many questions as you wish and, together, a treatment plan will be organised. Laura will analyse your skin and tone, and you will be able to discuss in confidence any concerns you may have about areas of your appearance you would like to enhance, improve or camouflage. Remember that semi permanent cosmetics are very successful treatments for improving contour, assymmetry and volume.

Semi-permanent make up is completely safe and natural-  it is endorsed by cosmetic surgeons and approved by medical doctors.

However there are very few exceptions when semi-permanent make up is not recommended for example –

* Those under the age of 18

* Pregnant women

*People susceptible to keloids formation (pink, fibrous growths that form on the skin following injury)

A consultation and a medical questionnaire will need to be completed to verify suitability.

 

MRI Scans

 

Yes you can have an MRI done safely and effectively with no serious side effects or diagnostic problems. You should inform the physician performing the MRI that you have permanent cosmetics. Some pigments contain iron oxide; this metallic substance can interfere with the electromagnetic fields used in MRI procedures causing a minor discomfort. However, permanent make up has such a low amount of iron oxide that the possibility of a diagnostic problem is scarce.

Shape & Colour

Shape and Colour

How will the shape be decided?

 

The Math behind the Beauty – Fibonacci – The Golden Mean Ratio (1 : 1.618)

 

Ancient Greeks first identified the measurable formula (1 : 1.61803398875)

The golden ratio occurs in nature, in essence it is a ratio of proportions which identify the key dimensions of the human face (& lots of other natural elements) it is considered aesthetically pleasing in Nature, Art & Architecture.

Some great examples are nautilus shells, flowers and our own bodies.

The perfect eyebrow breaks at the arch at approximately (1 :1.618)

Using the Golden Mean Ratio for eyebrow cosmetics I can create the right set of eyebrows that accentuate your features, creating balance and symmetry. Using a Fibonacci gauge i am able to carefully map out your new brows to give you the best shape for the contours of your face.

Decisions are based on the shape of your face, on your personality and your preference. If Laura feels your choice is not suitable she will suggest other options. A make-up pencil is used to outline alternatives until the ideal shape is found. The template is then measured and checked for perfect symmetry and balance.

How are the colours selected?

The choice of colours depends on the tone of your skin and the colour of your hair and eyes. With Laura’s assistance , suitable colours are selected and dabs of pigment are placed around the area to be treated in order to find the best match. You may like to bring along your own make-up and a match can be made from it.

You will always approve the colour/s in the design stage before I break Your skin, however due to the vast differences in people I cannot be sure how much colour your skin will retain until you have healed treatment part 1.

This process should always be done over a minimum of 2 treatments so that any adjustments can be made at treatment 2.

Aftercare

Aftercare

What should I expect after the treatment?

Immediately after treatment, the colour will appear darker than your chosen shade. This is because the pigment takes around seven days to enter the deeper layers of the skin. After seven to ten days, exfoliation takes place. The top layer of the skin peels off, leaving a softer, lighter colour below. The result is a natural-looking enhancement. As the treated area is settling down, itching may occur. This is a good sign as it means the skin is healing. Do not touch the treated area for seven days.

How long will the treatment last?

This varies depending on how well your skin holds the pigment. I recommend a colour boost to be taken once a year to keep enhancements looking fresh. Should you choose not to have a yearly colour boost your enhancement will fade over a period of approximately 1 – 3 years.

When will I need a colour boost?


Top-up time is different for everyone. Usually the colour should be touched-up after one year.

How long will my permanent makeup last?

Your permanent makeup enhancement can last for many years. However, everyone is different, and the longevity of your enhancement will depend on many things. Your lifestyle, sun exposure and environmental factors will all play their part in your enhancement fading gradually over time. But on average, clients can expect to return to the clinic after one year to eighteen months for a colour boost appointment.This will ensure your enhancement is always looking fresh and at its best.

What factors will affect permanent make-up?

* How long you spend in the sun. UV fades the pigment faster so sun block may be used to prolong your enhancement (sunbeds will cook your permanent cosmetics)

* The regeneration of skin cells – the longer the regeneration takes the longer the pigment holds.

* The speed at which the skin absorbs the pigment – the slower the absorption the longer the pigment will hold.

* The choice of colour – some colours fade quicker than others, e.g. a blond colour will fade quicker than a dark brown colour but it will ALWAYS fade and require upkeep to keep it looking at it’s best.

* The area of treatment – enhancements to the face, for example, fade more quickly due to constant exposure.

Safety, Discomfort & Allergies

Safety, Discomfort & Allergies

Will the treatment hurt?

It depends on the individual.  We are all distinctly unique; each one of us has a different level of tolerance to pain.  What might feel unbearable to you may be little more than a discomfort to the next person.

As someone who has first-hand experience, having had my brows and lips tattooed, I can honestly say the sensation was not dissimilar to a persistent itch.  I had the uncontrollable urge to scratch the treated area while the procedure was being performed, aside from that the stinging subsided as soon as the treatment ended.

Anaesthetics are used to minimise discomfort of the treatment area. Some clients may experience slight discomfort and a stinging sensation, more so on sensitive areas such as Scalp, Areola & Lips.

You may purchase an over the counter topical anaesthetic and apply up to an hour before Your appointment.

Some of the brands are LMX, EMLA, AMETOP, Lidocaine (Tesco unbranded pharmacy product) You are likely to be asked why You require it, I normally say I’m having an injection. This will give You a head start on Pain control but I will be using My own topical anaesthetics.

Will I be able to return back to work the next day?

Yes. Most of my customers show little sign of swelling or redness after treatment. The colour will be quite dark at first but not too conspicuous – it will soften and lighten within 10 days. Lip treatment clients may incur swelling and the colour will look strong for 3-7 days.

Is there a risk of infection?

There is a minimal risk of infection as strict hygiene standards are maintained. Sterile needles from sealed packets are used once only. To prevent cross-contamination Laura wears sterile gloves. The treatment area and machinery are disinfected after each treatment.

 Clear after-care guides are given to you at the end of each treatment and your aftercare kit.

Is permanent makeup safe?

Yes. I use only single sterile applicator cartridges, and the pigments we use are formulated from natural minerals, and are prepared to the strictest standards of hygiene. I also hold a current cross infection control certificate.

All pigments used in the clinic have CE european approval, are safe, non-toxic and hypo-allergenic. The pigments we use are frequently used by private and NHS hospitals. Wherever possible single use disposable items are used.

Furthermore, opthamologists recommend permanent makeup procedures for clients with sensitive eyes.

What about allergic reaction?

Allergic reactions to permanent make up in general are very rare but reaction is always a possibility –  Statistics indicate there is less than 0.1% out of every 100,000 permanent make up procedures that result in an allergic reaction, therefore, the chances of a person developing such a reaction are extremely remote.

The products I use including pigments and needles are hypoallergenic, ensuring the risks of allergies are reduced. In fact most adverse reactions result from sensitivity to antibiotic ointments sometimes given to clients as part of their after care procedure and not to the semi-permanent pigments themselves.  If you have very sensitive skin and are prone to allergies I offer a 2 step patch test, in which case 24 – 48  hours must elapse before your procedure can take place However Laura always advices a patch test which are always free of charge.

It is also worth bearing in mind that patch tests do not necessarily guarantee an accurate prediction as to whether you are suitable for permanent makeup or not as it can take months or even years for any reactions to take place you will also be asked questions about your medical history to establish your suitability as a candidate for permanent cosmetics as a part of your consultation.
