Frequently Asked Questions:
- How is colour implanting performed?
Only sterile and disposable needles and colours are used. The needle is dipped into the colour and only the tip of the needle is inserted into the skin quite shallow
How long does it take?
Treatments are complete in one treatment (except for camouflage and medical tattooing which require multiple treatments) but we do like you to come back in four to six weeks for a final checkup and any adjustments which are free of charge within two months.
Is It Like a Tattoo?
Yes, it is basically the same procedure, except during permanent makeup treatments the needle is not inserted as deeply into the skin and the pigments fade with time, but permanent make-up is a work of art.
What does it Look Like On the Skin?
It looks as if you have applied a make-up pencil, but the colour immediately after the treatment will be stronger and darker than your desired colour. You will lose approximately 20 – 40 % of colour intensity during the healing process, depending on the colour used and the skin type.
How Long Does it Last?
The pigment can last anywhere from 2 – 4 years, depending on different skin types, however darker pigments such as black can last up to 10 years.
Does the treatment hurt?
Colour implanting is not completely painless, however all treatments use a local anesthetic cream to minimize discomfort. The minutes of discomfort are well worth the long lasting results.
Who Can benefit from Permanent Make-Up?
Both men and women can benefit from this exciting procedure. Older people with poor eye sight and unsteady hands, handicapped people, vision or motor impaired persons including those with arthritis, Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and stroke survivors, alopecia sufferers, those with allergies, people who have scarring or have had reconstructive surgery, or anyone that travels, swims, plays sport or just everyday busy people who want to look their best under any condition.
