Permanent Makeup Cosmetic Tattoo Treatments
Permanent and semi-permanent makeup has come along way since its inception. It has never been easier to put your best face forward using the latest cosmetic tattooing techniques such as ‘microblading’ hair strokes to create a feathered, natural looking brow.
Subtle full lip tattoos to rejuvenate lips that have seen better days while eyeliner tattooing makeup accentuates and defines your eyes making streaks and smudging a thing of the past.
An eyeliner is fundamental for accentuating the colour and shape of your eyes. The techniques used range from a very subtle eyelash enhancement where colour is placed between the lashes only to medium or thicker eyeliners depending on the desired effect. Topically applied eye makeup is beautiful but a cosmetically tattooed eyeliner has the advantage of being waterproof, smudge proof and very long lasting permanent makeup treatment. Choose from a variety of colours to create a soft look or deeper more intense shades for a more dramatic impact.
A beautiful eyebrow tattoo will literally change your facial expression! It should compliment your face shape and dramatically emphasize your eyes but unfortunately few of us are born with naturally perfect eyebrows. An advanced cosmetic tattoo makeup technique is used to create realistic looking hair-like strokes that simulate real eyebrow hairs to achieve a very natural looking result. Badly shaped, asymmetrical and sparse brows can be redesigned to suit your face and bone structure with absolutely amazing results!
As we age lips tend to lose their colour and fullness while the natural border diminishes. Permanent makeup lip colouring can restore faded lips to their youthful appearance, redefine your natural lip border and correct inherent asymmetries. The most natural result can be achieved with the ‘full lip’ technique as opposed to the lipline only or ‘lipline and blend’ that has been used extensively in the past. Colour choice is unlimited and ranges from super soft light colours to the most vibrant shades. The ideal lip shape for your face should always be balanced in harmony with your features.
Other cosmetic tattoo 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.
There are various methods used to greatly improve poorly performed permanent makeup or semi permanent cosmetic tattoo 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 makeup eyeliners. Expectations must be realistic as results often cannot be as perfect as new cosmetic tattoo enhancements.
Eyeliner treatment- Contact lenses should not be worn for at least 24 hours post procedure so you are best advised to bring along your glasses to wear afterwards. Eyelash extensions, eyelash perms and tints should be avoided for at least one week prior and two weeks post procedure.
Lip treatments- Herpes/Cold sore sufferers need to minimise the possibility of an outbreak following the procedure by using oral and topical Zovirax products and the like prior to and after any lip tattoo.
