Any active person, man or woman, who has a concern for their appearance may benefit if they have fading brows, or an imbalance or a scar. This is so easily repaired and can look totally natural. Usually people will not be able to tell the brows are tattooed on instead of real hair. Anyone who has a hard time putting on eye makeup, due to far-sightedness or unsteady hands can benefit from permanent eyeliner or eyelash enhancement. We can apply a natural looking liner that is neater and finer than one could ever get with regular cosmetics. Permanent lip-liner and shading can be used to correct scars, or overly narrow lips, and to enhance the color which fades as we age. Lip color can look as natural or bold as you wish. Scar tissue as the result of accident, or surgery can be camouflaged with permanent makeup techniques. In some cases scar tissue can actually be relaxed as a result of tattoo technique. Aureola restoration also can be done for mastectomy patients.
Permanent makeup, (also known as micro-dermal pigmentation) is a tattoo process. Pigment is implanted into the dermis (the second layer of the skin) using a sterile probe. Pigment can enhance natural features, restore lost color due to aging and hair loss, or help to correct scarring or misshapen or unbalanced features.
It is considered permanent, however, fading will naturally occur over time due to sun exposure and individual differences in skin condition and health. Most procedures will require color boosts from time to time for best long-lasting results. Colors can be changed or altered somewhat at that time. Certain procedures have a tendency to need renewal more often than others. Eyebrow hair simulation for example requires such a subtle use of color that it is more subject to fading.
Universal Safety Precautions are always followed. New needles and pigment are used for each client each and every time. Greatest care is taken for the health of BOTH client and practitioner. We do our utmost to reduce any discomfort through the use of topical anesthetics and by making each procedure as quick and efficient as possible, and by keeping you informed at each step of the process.
For the benefit of the boost to your self esteem and the convenience you will experience, no it's really not very expensive.
Eyebrow hair simulation is used to create very natural-looking brows, 3 subtly different shades in fine hair lines. Very satisfying results! Eyebrows are our most common procedure as eyebrows make such an enormous difference to the face.
Also known as "lash enhancement" - this involves pigmentation placed into the upper and lower lash bed for the look of thicker lashes. Great for those who don't want the look of "eyeliner", suitable for both men and women. For a dramatic look of classic eyeliner, a thicker line can be implanted. This procedure can be done mostly with the eyes closed.
Can be a very subtle look or more dramatic. Restores healthy color lost due to aging, also can create a fuller look or repair a scar or imbalance in the lips. Much can be done with lip-liner and a generous shading to create the look of "just a touch of lipstick" that never smears or comes off.
The next step beyond Lip-liner with Blend … However we have so much success with the lip-liner that very few have opted for full color.
