In the hands of a skilled technician, a cosmetic tattoo can naturally enhance your features and correct unwanted asymmetries. Traditional makeup has become a thing of the past for countless women the world over. With this exciting treatment you too can enjoy the benefits of looking good 24/7 and say goodbye to time consuming beauty routines. Customised semi-permanent or permanent makeup is designed specifically to suit you.
Permanent makeup is a specialised artistic technique and your result is only as good as your chosen artist. It is important to make this decision based on the design aesthetic, experience, ability & talent of the technician along with the quality of the equipment and products used. A thorough consultation with conventional makeup to simulate the desired outcome should be performed prior to any procedure to ensure that you know what to expect.
The most popular procedures include – complete eyebrow redesign to a subtle ‘fill-in’ with hair-like strokes for a realistic 3D effect. The most on-trend techniques for this purpose are Microblading/Feathering. Eyebrows are undoubtedly the most important facial feature. They frame the eyes and set the tone for expression. Great eyebrows act like a facelift! Subtle eyelash enhancements that give you the look of more lashes to eyeliners of varying thickness in a variety of colours will add depth and definition to your eyes. Liplines can be defined and blended or fully coloured for the ultimate natural looking, youthful lips.
PARAMEDICAL – Para-medical procedures include nipple and areola repigmentation following mastectomy, scar camouflage, micro-hair simulation for hair loss irregularities due to injury, surgery, alopecia or trichotillomania, vitiligo re-pigmentation and cleft palate restoration following reconstructive surgery to balance the lip shape.
CORRECTION WORK- There are various methods used to greatly improve poorly performed permanent makeup. Unnatural colours can be returned to a more pleasing colour using corrective pigments. There are also professional treatments utilizing inorganic chemical remover products to lighten existing unattractive makeup but they are not suitable for removing permanent eyeliners. Expectations must be realistic as results are not usually as perfect as new cosmetic tattoo enhancements.
