Modern cosmetology allows you to correct the shortcomings of your appearance. One of the most popular and widely used procedures to do so is semi-permanent make-up. This the makeup that you don’t need to apply and wash off every day, which saves you precious time, money and at the same time helps you to remain attractive regardless of time of day and other circumstances.
When applying makeup, a special attention is usually paid to the eyes, so that the eyes are simply fascinating. Not many people know that not only make up (mascara, eye shadow, eye pencil, etc.) plays an important role but also the eyebrows: their shape and appearance. It is they who give the woman’s gaze a special expression and openness, while emphasizing the contour of her face.
Alas, not all women have naturally beautiful thick eyebrows, and even if they do, the age tends to have an effect on them: eyebrows become sparse, and sometimes they may completely disappear. In such cases, permanent eyebrow make-up comes to the rescue. It helps the eyebrows get the ideal shape and look natural, but most importantly - this effect persists for many years. I work with several techniques, which help me to achieve the desired result.
Brow shading – it mimics the process of applying the eyebrow shadows or pencil. Eyebrow shading tattoo is suitable for women who want to emphasize the beauty of their eyebrows, give them clarity and expressiveness. Brow shading is an excellent option for women with sparse eyebrows or with their complete absence.
Microblading (hairs) is used in the case of thin eyebrows, asymmetrical eyebrows, irregular eyebrows or scars on the eyebrows. The effect is achieved through a method of manual micropigmentation of the eyebrows, at which microscopic incisions are made on the surface of the skin, filling them with a pigment. After the shaded cuts heal, they will look an accurate imitation of natural eyebrow hairs.
Often, women who have just had semi permanent makeup done on their eyebrows, ar somewhat surprised at their unusual brightness. However, this phenomenon is considered quite normal, because with the passage of time (3-4 weeks), the pigment introduced into the skin will gradually lighten. After the procedure, there may be a slight redness around the eyebrows and slight burning. There should be no swelling. Please do not be concerned about the cuts nor crust that appear several days after the procedure. Proper care and observation of all precautions will eliminate these unpleasant skin manifestations within a week.
Now imagine: you wake up in the morning with your eyes already perfectly underlined. There is no need to spend an hour at the mirror to make the look expressive with the help of a pencil or eyeliner. In my salon, I offer a special kind of natural semi-permanent eye makeup – a tattoo between the eyelashes. It is almost imperceptible on the eyes, although it gives enough of an expressive look. This option is ideal for those who prefer natural makeup look. The application procedure consists of filling in the free spaces between the eyelashes with a pigment. This method makes eyelashes visually thicker and more chic, allowing you to dispense with daily use of mascara.
Semi-permanent lip make up adorns the face for several years, eliminating the need to regularly apply the lipstick. This is to some extent an excellent alternative to plastic surgery, as it can help correct lip asymmetry and mask scarring. It also allows to visually make your lips fuller or thinner, or make them brighter, to make the lips more attractive. I offer my clients the most optimal option of lip tattoo – the lip contour definer with full tint – it gives a lipstick effect, making the lips more "harmonious" and more attractive.
The period of healing after the semi-permanent lip make up lasts about 14 days. The final colour of the lips will appear only after a month. After healing, the permanent make-up of the lips will get lighter by 40-60% of the initial intensity of the colour.
Immediately after the procedure, the skin of the lips and the area around them turns very red, there is swelling and/or skin irritation. On the second day after the semi-permanent lip make-up procedures the crusts appear, which must not be removed independently. Otherwise, besides traumatizing the skin of the lips, pale "untattooed" spots will remain on the lips. In two or three days after the procedure the crusts will come off by themselves.
After the procedure, there may be appearance of herpes on the lips, which is caused by the virus (Herpes iabius) localizing in the human body on the red border of the lips and which may occur in 80% of cases. To avoid exacerbation of oral herpes before and after the procedure, I strongly recommend taking antiviral medicine for 7 days prior to the procedure.
After having a semi-permanent make-up procedure, the result is symmetrical shape beautiful colour of your face features. However, the work of the expert is only 50% of the success. The other 50% of success is your care of the make up during its healing process.
In the 7-10 days post procedure in order to suppress negative symptoms you should follow simple recommendations:
• it is forbidden to visit sauna and swimming pool.
• avoid exposure to direct sunlight
• do not use make up
• do not attempt to remove crusts yourself because a depigmented area of skin (gap) may form in the place of a crust
• do not wet the treated area. If there is a need to cleanse your eyes, use a damp wipe without alcohol content. If it so happened that the tattoo is wet, you should immediately get dry it with a tissue using light patting rather than rubbing movement
• a special remedy should be applied to the treated area several times a day.
Please remember, you cannot fully evaluate the result of the procedure until three to four weeks afterwards. Please do not draw early conclusions, because the manifestation of colour and shape occurs precisely by that time. Please do not be afraid of small defects, they are eliminated with the help of correction, which is required in 90% of cases. It takes 21 days until complete healing of the skin, after which it is possible to carry out a "correction” procedure, if and where required.
