FULL LIP COLOUR
WAKE UP WITH MAKEUP
Colour implanted into the skin creates beautiful shaped eyebrows, lip line, eyeliner, and beauty spots.
These corrective treatments are for people with fair or no eyebrows, caused by over plucking, age or scaring, defining lip shape, making thin lips look fuller and correcting uneven lip shape.
WHAT ARE THE APPLICATIONS FOR MY COSMETIC TATTOO?
The process can be used where people have gaps in their eyebrows (perhaps due to scaring), have only half an eyebrow, would like dark or more defined eyebrows or brows that appear thicker.
Many people have unevenly shaped lips which give a lopsided effect. Some lips blend into the face without a clearly defined border. Pigment implantation can create an attractive lip line that enhances the lip shape of the mouth, and looks good with or without lipstick.
COSMETIC EYE LINER TATTOO
Pigment implant can give you a permanent made-up look.
If nature hasn't given you a beauty spot you can create one in the place of your choice, through pigment implantation.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Pigment implantation gives you the benefits normally achieved through the skilled use of makeup. It changes your appearance in ways that you choose. The great advantage is its semi-permanent nature - you look good right around the clock. You can shower, swim and perspire without a problem - there is no risk of these changes smearing or running, or of lip colour "bleeding".
IS IT A TATTOO?
It is basically the same process, except that the needle is not inserted as deeply. Tattooing goes into the deepest layers of the skin and uses a permanent ink which is the reason tattoos last forever. Cosmetic tattoos, like the ones we offer near Belconnen, on the other hand are a semi-permanent solution – you get to enjoy the benefits of a lasting design without the permanent commitment.
HOW IS PIGMENT IMPLANTATION PERFORMED?
Using the finest quality needles, the pigment is introduced into the skin. The needle is dipped into the pigment and the tip of the needle inserted into the skin, allowing the skin to absorb the colour.
Needle penetration is quite shallow which is the reason for the changes being only semi-permanent. As you replace your skin over the years, the changes gradually fade away.
HOW LONG DOES A COSMETIC TATTOO LAST?
The pigment in the skin can last 3-5 years, depending on the colour used and the individual variations in the skin replacement rates. The average length of time an implant lasts is 3 years. Lighter bow colours, which clients sometimes choose for first treatments may, may be a little less definite and will start to fade out before 3 years. Some clients choose to have a retouch after 18 months to retain a darker colour and a more defined line.
DOES THE TREATMENT HURT?
Using a cotton bud dipped in local anaesthetic and applied to the skin, makes the treatment virtually painless.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Treatment time varies depending on the extent and nature of the treatment. An appointment time of 1 hour is generally allowed. A short follow up appointment is generally made for 3 -4 weeks time to check colour and shape, and to make any adjustments, if necessary (eg. sometimes a small area will require a little more colour).
IS THE COSMETIC TATTOOS TREATMENT SAFE?
Yes. I am not aware of anyone with any adverse reactions. The treatments are performed under sterile conditions with every precaution taken for the client and myself.
ARE THERE ANY AFTER EFFECTS?
Swelling is mild and usually lasts 2-3 days. There may be some slight tightness as healing occurs. People who are prone to cold sores very occasionally develop a cold sore following treatment to the lips. This is due to the stress of the treatment which causes the dormant virus to become active. If you have any symptoms which concern you, please feel free to ring us.
