Permanent make-up is an established treatment that inserts pigment under the skin, much like a tattoo, to mimic and enhance facial features. The most popular areas for permanent make-up are eye brows, top and bottom eye-liner, lip-liner and full lip colour.
There are a variety of methods used; the rotary machine method which is more traditional and versatile, the microblading method and embroidery method.
The Rotary Machine Method
At Just Skin, we use the rotary machine method. This method uses a needle/ probe to quickly, accurately and effectively deposit our plant based premier pigments into the skin. With the rotary machine the pigment is deposited slightly deeper into the skin and therefore results tend to last longer than when the other methods are used. With this method we offer permanent brows, top and bottom eye-liner as well as lip liner and full lip colour.
Different size needles/ probes are used in the machine to give you the desired results. A finer needle is used for the brows, so we can create hair strokes and a natural shape. A thicker needle is used for liners and a cluster is used for full lip colour.
The Microblading Method
Microblading uses a flat cluster of needles that are manually inserted into the superficial layers of the skin. This method is only used for eye brows and allows for very realistic, precise, fine strokes to mimic each hair. The initial results look fantastic however within 6 – 12 months expect the ink to fade and spread under skin. This is due to the fact that the pigment remains within the epidermis (upper layer of the skin). Click here to watch a full review.
The Embroidery Method
This method is very similar to Microblading, but is differs slightly as the pigment can be deposited deeper into the skin and this technique can be used for both brows and lip-liner.
What to expect
Before your treatment, the area being treated, will be prepped. For brows they will be drawn in and shaped according to your facial features. Once approved the area will be numbed using a numbing cream.
The treatment itself takes between 45min and an hour.
After the treatment you must allow the area to scab and heal, this usually takes 4 -5 days. Ideally avoid make-up and excessive water on the area during this time. Full healing for lips can take up to 10 days.
A follow-up treatment is required within 4 – 6 weeks.
