Permanent make up can be divided into two different areas...
Cosmetic facial procedures consist of eyebrow, eyeliner and lip treatment and paramedical procedures (medical tattooing) includes scar camouflage and areola re-pigmentation after breast reconstructive surgery.
Plastic surgeons can create faux areolae after breast reconstruction, which may require pigmentation and shading, or camouflage may be required for white face-lift or breast-implant scars with pigment matched to the client's skin tone.
For the breast reconstruction patients the areola pigmentation is the final stage in their recovery process where the areola is built up over a number of treatments using a dotting technique with a range of different skin colour pigments to create a realistic 3D effect.
This technique is used to correct missing or faded pigmentation in the nipple and areola area caused by the ageing process or from breast reconstruction surgery. Many women opt for breast reconstruction after mastectomy and may have been left without areolae or nipples.
Alternatively, they may have naturally pale or faded areolae, or been left with uneven, asymmetrical, misplaced or discoloured areola following surgery. This type of permanent make up is an artistic and creative process designed to fully restore colour and give a 3D effect to the reconstructed areola after breast reconstruction surgery.
Areola pigmentation can be an important final step to helping restore an aesthetically pleasing appearance to the breasts. Nipples can be created by the surgeon and areola pigmentation used to restore original colour.
Areola pigmentation can also be used to create a 3D look. It is possible to closely match the patient’s original or remaining areola and the effects are realistic and natural.
Areola pigmentation to the breast can also be applied after breast surgery to disguise the scars caused by some augmentation procedures; reduction and uplift treatments.
Repositioning, re-colouring or reshaping of the overall appearance of nipples and areolae can be achieved. Some women also want to darken a naturally light areola.
Scalp Pigmentation/Micro Scalp Pigmentation (MSP)
This is a highly specialized non-surgical permanent make up treatment for people who have scars in the scalp from injury or from surgery, are thinning, or in the process of experiencing hair loss from alopecia, trichotillomania, or male pattern baldness.
The artistic simulation technique can replicate hair follicles of a receding hairline, fill in a balding crown, or cover the complete head to create a natural looking shaved or closely cropped hairstyle that looks like real hair.
The results can have a huge impact on self-esteem and self-confidence. Not only will you believe you have real hair, but so will everyone around you.
Treatment is suitable for:
Hair transplant patients
Strip method hair transplants always create a scar and scalp pigmentation can help hide these scars. Also, if the hair transplant should fail scalp pigmentation can simulate hair follicles.
Scalp pigmentation is offered to those people who are suffering from natural hair loss, typically caused by a condition known as male pattern baldness. The ‘horseshoe’ effect is produced because the hairline is pushed backwards, particularly on the frontal hair line sides.
Scalp pigmentation can redefine your hairline, resulting in a youthful and more natural appearance.
Balding of the crown
Another common form of male pattern baldness is the one in which the baldness or hair loss is more predominant on the top of the head towards the crown. A balding crown can have a negative effect on a person's perceived age.
Scalp pigmentation can fill in the bald or thinning crown and give you the look of a more uniform distribution of hair. A new, younger, you!
Complete hair loss
Hair loss in men can happen very quickly or take years to affect the whole scalp. Complete hair loss can cause the patient to experience confidence and self-esteem issues. Scalp pigmentation can create the look of a complete head of short or cropped hair.
Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
Collagen is one of the key building blocks; by the age of 35 we have lost half the collagen level in our skin.
Skin needling is a method of controlled stimulation of the skin’s self-repair mechanism in a safe, pain-free method that stimulates new collagen production and can reduce scars.
It also aids product penetration to the deeper layers of the skin for advanced anti-ageing skin regeneration.
This is the latest permanent make up technique for creating eyebrows using an ingenious razor to create fine lines that look like hairs and look like the real thing.
This procedure is suitable for clients who have sparse hairs or gaps and can be supplemented with traditional permanent make up techniques to create a natural looking brow.
