Semi-Permanent Make-Up Can Help To Define Your Facial Features And Save You Time
Just imagine getting out of the bed every morning with your make-up already applied. Semi-permanent make-up can make this a reality.
But before you go for this treatment, you must realise that you are trusting someone with your face. It’s not like a bad haircut, where you can always tie your hair up or wear a hat, and it will eventually grow out; with semi-permanent make-up it’s right there on your face, where everyone can look at it. If it does go wrong there is always corrective laser treatment, but this could prove expensive and painful.
You shouldn’t rush into having semi-permanent make-up treatment as it can remain in the skin for several years, so it’s wise to find a reputable technician, with the correct qualifications and training to avoid unfortunate mistakes.
- Before you go for any enhancements, do your research!
- Make sure the technician is fully trained, fully insured and fully licensed with the local council.
- Check out photos of their work on social media, and their websites.
- Check out where they trained and who they trained with.
- Always go to a shop, clinic or salon, don’t have treatment at your home.
- Choose someone who is up to date with current trends and techniques.
- Have a consultation to discuss what you want and what will suit you.
- Over time the colour will fade to a softer colour complimenting the skin tone.
Semi-permanent make-up has become really popular over the last five years and over the past twelve months, micro blading has become a treatment that’s often asked for. Micro blading the brows with strokes of colour individually, makes them look natural, unlike the block of colour that happens when you pencil them on.
Micro blading is a technique where we put small particles of pigment into the eyebrows to create really fine hair strokes. It’s done with a hand-held tool, featuring several tiny needles in a row to deposit dye into the dermal second layer of the skin. It’s a cosmetic form of tattooing which puts pigment into the skin, but doesn’t go as deep as a normal tattoo would. The colour should last between 12-18 months and then you should return and have a colour treatment boost to freshen up the colours.
A consultation before any treatment is important, as this is when you will learn exactly what’s involved in your chosen treatment. The process will be fully explained and they can answer any questions you might have. The technician will find out what you want, and work with you to create your new look.
