PERMANENT COSMETICS

by Dermaspa

Permanent makeup is a cosmetic form of tattooing. Using computerised technology, or a hand held tool (referred to as microblading), pharmaceutical grade pigments are ‘tattooed’ into the upper dermis of the skin to define lips, eyes and brows. Permanent cosmetics are the future of the beauty industry and are used increasingly for cosmetic and ‘medical’ purposes to complement the work of Surgeons, Aesthetic Doctors and Ophthalmologists.

  • LIP LINER (soft or defined)
  • LIP BLUSH (with soft line)
  • LIP BLUSH (with definite line)
  • FULL LIP COLOUR

MAINTENANCE

Once you’ve had your initial permanent makeup procedure, the colour will begin to fade gradually. The longevity of your result depends on a numberof factors including medications, exposure to the sun and the rate at which your skin exfoliates.

On average the colour will remain visible for approximately three years, although you may have particles of pigment in the skin permanently. We recommend a colour boost approximately every eighteen months to keep your results looking fresh. This involves a single visit in most cases although some clients may require a top up on this procedure within three months. We have found that clients; with Alopecia, clients that have had or are having treatments such as Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy and acne treatment do not retain colour as well, so colour boosts are required more frequently. To prolong colour retention we advise limited exposure to the sun and any products which may exfoliate the skin. We advise use of barrier cream and a cream of at least 30 SPF to protect whilst swimming or sunbathing. All lip and eyebrow treatments include a free 2nd application between 1 and 3 months. This is not always necessary but may be required if the colour does not heal evenly. If a further top up is required a small charge will be incurred.

Colourboost options:

  • Extra Top Up Within 6 Months
  • Colour Boost Within 12 Months
  • Colour Boost Within 18 Months
  • Colour Boost Within 24 Months
  • Colour Boost Within 36 Months

PARAMEDICAL

Permanent makeup is an excellent treatment to assist those who have lost their eyelashes and brows through Alopecia and Chemotherapy.

It can be used to create the colour and shape of the areola after breast reconstructive surgery or to correct the shape of uneven areola. It is also effective when used to camouflage scars and small areas of Vitiligo.

Paramedical treatments are heavily reliant on the condition of the skin and nature of the scar/condition. Therefore we cannot guarantee results. Multiple treatments may be required to achieve the best result.

Treatments include:

  • Paramedical
  • Scar camouflage
  • Vitiligo camouflage
  • Areola
  • Colour Enhancement
  • Shape Correction/Enlargement
  • Single Reconstruction
  • Double Reconstruction

please note: treatments with Nilam are charged at a premium, strictly by appointment only.
