EYELINER & LIPS FACT SHEET

Permanent Lash enhancement or Eyeliner treatment

Thankyou for your enquiry regarding the eyeliner treatment. Here are some frequently asked questions and information on the procedure. If you have any more questions at all, please don’t hesitate to ask.

What is permanent Eyeliner?

The permanent eyeliner treatment is a treatment used to define eyes. It is a form of tattooing, where we implant pigment under the skin close to the wet line of the eye and in between the lashes to add colour, enhancing the appearance of the eyes.

What look can I achieve with this treatment?

With this treatment you can achieve a very subtle lash enhancement, where we implant a small amount of colour through your lash line. This would not be visible when your eyes are closed but will make the lashes appear fuller from the root. Or for a slightly stronger look, you could opt for a baby eyeliner. This look would add extra definition around the eye mimicking more of a makeup look. It can be extended out into a small Latino flick or finish at the last lash. Alternatively, if you are looking for something more dramatic, you could opt for a bigger Latino with shading perhaps. There are many options and each design would be tailored to your specific needs and requirements. Taking into consideration the shape and colour of your eyes, the skin around your eyes etc. As with all permanent makeup procedures, this procedure will not fully replace your conventional makeup, it will however, give you a lovely fresh look to wake up with every day.

How long will it last?

The length of time that this treatment lasts varies hugely from person to person, although it typically lasts longer than the eyebrow and lip procedure as it is protected by your lashes. You may require a colour boost once every 12- 18 months.

Does it hurt?

We use anaesthetic gels to numb the area, making this treatment relatively pain free. It will however become tender during the appointment as the eye area is wiped a lot and our skin is quite sensitive in this area.

How will my Eyes feel afterwards?

After this treatment, you can expect slight swelling, in some cases eyes swell a little more than others and this can be a delayed reaction the following day. There may be slight redness around the area. These symptoms generally subside within a couple of days. You will not be able to wear mascara for 1 week post treatment so it is a good idea to have your lashes tinted 1 week prior to having your treatment if you have very fair lashes. Individual lashes will need to be removed a couple of days before having your appointment and you are advised not to have any individual lashes put back on until 2 weeks after your retouch visit.

Will I get to see the design before you start?

At the start of every treatment, the top liner is drawn on to the eye with eyeliner to establish the look you wish to achieve and any limitations in our way. Once we have both agreed on a shape and style of liner, this will be my guide and I will tattoo directly over the top of this template.

How long does the treatment take?

This treatment takes around and hour and a half for a lash enhancement and up to 2 and a half hours for a large Latino liner. This includes numbing and drawing time. There will then be a further hour and a half time slot allocated for your retouch visit.

Why will I need a retouch visit?

This treatment, as with all other permanent makeup treatments, is a 2-part process. The first session is to design your new liner and deposit the first coat of pigment under the skin. When you leave they will look perfect, and very dark, however, depending on skin type, aftercare and colour choice, they may heal lighter and possibly patchy after the first session. A little bit like painting a wall, after the second session your colour will really come to life. This second treatment is to perfect the shape and colour, going over the whole area again filling in any patches or shape change that may have occurred during the healing process.

For this reason, we recommend that you allow plenty of time to have your treatment completed if you are wanting to have them done in time for any big event.

Can I have this treatment whilst pregnant or breastfeeding?

This treatment can not be performed whilst pregnant or breastfeeding. It is advised to leave at least 8 weeks after pregnancy or once you have finished breastfeeding for your hormones to settle down.

How do I book and what happens next?

Once you have secured your booking, we will send all of the adequate paperwork out in the post, including your medical health forms and consent forms.

Permanent Lip liner and blush treatment

What is the permanent makeup Lip Blush treatment?

The permanent lip blush treatment is in fact a semi- permanent tattooing procedure which has been popular for many years. The reason it is called ‘permanent’ makeup is for the very reason that the pigmented deposited under the skin may lay present in your skin for a number of years after your first treatment. So for legal reasons, we must call it ‘permanent’ as to make our clients aware of this before making the decision to have permanent makeup. Pigment is deposited into the epidermis of the lips using a specialised tattoo machine and needle designed to work on delicate areas of skin such as the skin on our lips. This method can be used to help define lips, correct shape and add a flush of colour to pale lips when not wearing any makeup.

What look can achieve with this method?

The lip blush procedure can create very beautiful subtle results, enhancing or correcting the shape of your lips, defining the border of your lips which may have become faded over the years and adding a soft hue of colour. You can opt to have your lip line defined by tattooing slightly over the vermillion border creating the appearance of extra fullness. It will not replace your brighter lipstick colours as the colours heal quite muted and subtle. It can however give you that extra kick of colour if you feel that your lips are very pale or ‘disappear’ when you have no makeup on. It is personally one of our ultimate favourite beauty treatments as the results are so subtle yet make a huge difference to the symmetry and appearance of your natural lips.

How long will it last?

The implanted colour will typically last between 12-24 months (see treatment menu for current prices) however this varies hugely from person to person, depending on skin type. There are precautions you can take to help your lips to last longer, including following the aftercare advice 2 weeks post treatment (see aftercare leaflet) following a maintenance program and applying a high factor physical sun screen to your brows daily (ask our team about our recommended exclusive SPF facial moisturiser). Your body will gently metabolise the pigment a little bit each month making the colour appear lighter and lighter. It is completely your choice when you come back for your colour boost between this time, providing there is still a haze of colour left to follow the existing shape. This treatment differs from the brow treatment as the colour typically lasts longer and naturally fades back to the natural colour of your lips.

Is it painful?

Topical anaesthetics are used throughout the procedure to keep pain at a minimum and most clients feel a little discomfort at the start and towards the very end of the treatment, once the anaesthetic has got to work during the treatment it becomes much more comfortable. It can be a little uncomfortable for a couple of hours after the treatment but this tends to subside fairly quickly.

How long does it take?

Your first treatment will take around 2 hours from start to finish including numbing time and a thorough consultation to choose your shape and colour. You will then return 6 weeks later for your second top up appointment which will take around an hour and a half. This top up appointment is included in the price quoted and it is extremely important that you return for this visit.

How will my lips look after the treatment?

Immediately after the treatment your lips will look very dark in colour and can be swollen. The following day your lips could swell more and the scabs will start to form. Your lips will be extremely dry and flaky for up to 1 week after. This can be very prominent so it is advised not to have any plans made for the week following your appointment. This will be the same after your retouch visit also. After around 1 week, the colour will soften and appear much lighter. Your true healed colour will not show through until around 4-6 weeks after this.

Why will I need a retouch visit?

This treatment, as with all other permanent makeup treatments, is a 2-part process. The first session is to design your new lips, and deposit the first coat of pigment under the skin.
