LIPLINER

TIRED OF RE-APPLYING YOUR LIPLINER AND LIPSTICK
OVER AND OVER AGAIN DURING THE DAY? DO THE CURRENT ALL DAY LIPSTICK BRANDS MAKE YOUR LIPS DRY OR CHAPPED? WOULD YOU LIKE MORE DEFINITION, FULLER LIPS, OR TO CORRECT A CROOKED LIP LINE? JUST WISH YOU HAD BACK SOME OF THE COLOUR YOU HAD WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER?

FAQ'S

1) "IS IT REALLY PERMANENT?"

TECHNICALLY, PERMANENT COSMETICS PROCEDURES ARE CONSIDERED PERMANENT BECAUSE THE COLOUR IS IMPLANTED INTO THE UPPER RETICULAR PART OF THE DERMAL LAYER OF THE SKIN AND CANNOT BE WASHED OFF. HOWEVER, AS WITH ANY TATTOO, FADING CAN AND OFTEN DOES OCCUR, REQUIRING PERIODIC MAINTENANCE, COLOUR RE-ENHANCEMENT OR COLOUR RE-FRESHING. JUST LIKE HAIR COLOUR, FURNITURE THAT MAY BE LOCATED NEAR A WINDOW, OR EVEN HOUSE PAINT, PIGMENT IMPLANTED IN SKIN MAY FADE WITH TIME. IT IS IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER THIS AND ALL ASPECTS OF THE PROCEDURE WHEN SELECTING A POTENTIAL PERMANENT COSMETIC MAKEUP TECHNICIAN.

2) HOW LONG DOES EACH PROCEDURE TAKE?

THE INITIAL PROCEDURE WILL GENERALLY TAKE APPROXIMATELY 1 TO 2 ½ HOURS. TOUCH UP PROCEDURES USUALLY DO NOT REQUIRE AS MUCH TIME.

3) IS IT PAINFUL?

MOST PEOPLE EXPERIENCE SOME DISCOMFORT. THIS MAY VARY ACCORDING TO EACH INDIVIDUAL'S PAIN THRESHOLD AND THE SKILLS OF THE TECHNICIAN PERFORMING THE SERVICE. HOWEVER, THER ARE DIFFERENT METHODS AVAILABLE TO HELP WITHPAIN MANAGEMENT, INCLUDING VARIOUS TOPICAL ANESHETIC OINTMENTS, ANESTHETIC LOCALS AND NERVE BLOCKS (ADMINISTERED BY A DOCTOR OR DENTIST). YOUR TECHNICIAN SHOULD DISCUSS THESE METHODS WITH YOU TO DETERMINE WHICH ONE SUITS YOU BEST.

4) IS IT SAFE?

IF PROPER STERILIZATION AND SANITARY GUIDELINES ARE MET, PERMANENT COSMETICS SHOULD BE COMPLETELY SAFE. THESE GUIDELINES INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:

MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO LOOK FOR-

  1. ALL NEEDLES SHOULD BE NEW AND STERILE FOR EACH CLIENT.
  2. OTHER EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES SHOULD BE KEPT IN A SANITARY MANNER.
  3. GLOVES SHOULD BE NEW FOR EACH CLIENT
  4. THE TECHNICIAN SHOULD BE CLEAN AND NEAT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE OF ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
  5. THE ROOM OR TREATMENT AREA SHOULD BE FREE FROM OTHER CONTAMINANTS.

5) WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE IT?

ALTHOUGH THE PROCEDURE IS CONSIDERED PERMANENT, THESE PROCEDURES DO HAVE FLEXIBILITY IN CHANGING COLOUR AND SHAPE TO SOME EXTENT, DEPENDING ON THE EXPERTISE OF YOUR TECHNICIAN. COLOURS WILL APPEAR DARKER IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWNG THE PROCEDURE BUT WILL SOFTEN AND LIGHTEN DURING THE HEALING PROCESS. THE HEALING TIME IS DIFFERENT FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL AND PROCEDURE.

6) ARE THERE ANY AFTER OR SIDE EFFECTS?

GENERALLY, THERE IS SOME SWELLING OF THE TREATED AREA. WHILE EYEBRROWS MAY SHOW LITTLE AFTER EFFECT, EYELINER AND LIPS MAY SHOW MORE AND THE EDEMA MAY LAST FROM TWO TO SEVENTY TWO HOURS DURING THE PROCEDURE THERE MAY BE SOME BLEEDING AND OR BRUISING. THERE IS USUALLY SOME TENDERNESS FOR A FEW DAYS. THE COLOUR IS MUCH DARKER THAN YOU MAY EXPECT FOR THE FIRST SIX TO TEN DAYS. SOMETIMES PEOPLE HAVE REATIONSTO ANITBIOTICS. YOU MAY USE ANY TYPE OF ANITBIOTIC THAT YOU PREFER FOR YOUR INDIVIDUAL SYSTEM. THERE MAY BE OTHER SIDE EFFECTS UNFORESEEN DUE TO INDIVIDUALITY.

7) DO THE PIGMENTS POSE ALLERGY PROBLEMS?

THE APPLICATION IS JUST DEEP ENOUGH TO PENETRATE THE MINUTE CAPILLARIES IN THE DERMAL LAYER OF SKIN. THERE HAVE BEEN SO FEW REACTIONS TO THE PIGMENTS THAT SOME DOCTORS ARE SUGGESTING THAT THE PATCH TEST BE ELIMINATED. YOU CAN DEVELOP AN ALLERY TO ANYTHING, ANYTIME. SOME DOCTORS RECOMMEND THAT PEOPLE WITH ALLERGIES HAVE PERMANENT COSMETIC PROCEDURES BECAUSE THEY CAN REPLACE COSMETIC PRODUCTS THAT THEY ARE SENSITIVE TO.

8) IS THERE ANY POSSIBILITY FOR MEDICAL PROBLEMS?

THE POSSIBILITY THAT YOU WOULD HAVE ANY PROBLEMS OR REATIONS FROM THESE PROCEDURES IS ALMOST NON-EXISTENT WITH TODAY'S HEALTH STANDARDS. POST PROCEDURAL INSTRUCTIONS, IF FOLLOWED CAREFULLY, WILL COMPLETELY ELMINATE ANY RISK.

9) WHAT'S A TOUCH-UP AND DO I NEED ONE?

A TOUCH-UP IS A COLOUR RE-ENHANCEMENT. ALMOST ALWAYS THE IMPLANTED COLOUR IS NOT PERFECT AFTER THE FIRST PROCEDURE. THESE PROCEDURES ARE PROCESSES AND AT LEAST ONE FOLLOW-UP TO THE INITIAL PROCEDURE SHOULD BE SCHEDULED. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU DO NOT TRAUMATIZE THE SKIN AGAIN FOR A MINIMUM OF FOUR WEEKS. SIX WEEKS IF BETTER OF CAUSE. YOUR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS TAKE PRECEDENCE. EIGHT WEEKS IS RECOMMENDED AFTER A LIP PROCEDURE.
