HOW DOES THE PROCEDURE FEEL?
Topical anaesthetic (e.g. creams) are used to minimize discomfort. On a scale of 0-10, 0 being nil and 10 being the highest, an average rate is a 3 level of pain.
WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
Immediately after procedure your colour will appear darker and more intense, but will subsequently lighten with the healing process. Mild redness or swelling may occur but not for all, for the first couple of days, however normal activity can be resumed immediately following the procedure.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST ?
Enhancements can last from 1 to 5 years dependant on factors such as age, exposure to uv light and swimming. To maintain the colour intensity of your enhancement you can return for a retouch every 12 months for a refresh treatment. These treatments take much less time to complete and are priced accordingly.
FADING OF COLOUR ?
Permanent Make-up also called micropigmentation is designed to fade. So the colour you have today will not be the colour in 5 to 10 years time. Patients that desire a red lipstick today will fade into the softness of pinks in the future. Plan to have your enhancement maintained with refresher treatments.
