Permanent Make-up

Louise was trained through the world renowned Premier Permanent in November 2013. Premier prides itself on being hypo-allergenic and free from toxins. Premier Pigments set the industry standards for quality permanent cosmetics. Over the years Premier pigment colors have been proven to be safe, long-lasting and fade resistant, thanks to the limited use of iron oxides in all their pigments. 

 

Pigments / Colours are chosen and mixed according to each individuals skin tones and requirements. Colours can be soft and subtle or dark and bold. Shapes are measured, drawn on and discussed before the procedure begins.

 

Brows are the best way to frame your face and with permanent make-up we can subtle enhance your natural shape or even redesign your complete brows. Whether it is filling in a few missing hairs or even shading in your whole brow, there is a look and technique to suit all. Brows are measured, shaped and drawn on with a pencil before the treatment starts ensuring you are 100% happy with the intended shape and style. 

 

Permanent eyeliner is great for defining the natural shape of your eyes. Eyeliner can be done with a soft or dark line, thick or thin in a wide choice of colors: black, black brown, brown, dark plum, blue, grey and even green, with a wide range of other colors to still choose from.

 

In terms of the actual liner you have the option to choose from a:

  • Natural lash enhancement (A thin line applied along the lash line adding a look of fullness to the lashes),

 

  • Designer lash line (A slightly thicker looking line that look like a liner applied with makeup, it is slightly in the lash line moving slightly above the lash line making it slightly more visible) or

 

  • The liner can be applied just on the top or bottom lash line or both.

Multiple layers of anesthetic are applied throughout the treatment making it virtually pain free.

 

Who makes a good candidate for permanent makeup?

  • If you are in good health with no active infections or illnesses

  • If you are not taking any blood thinning medications. If you have been on blood thinners then they have had time to work out of your system

  • You need to have clear skin that is not healing / recovering from a previous procedure or sun damage 

You will not / may not be a good candidate if you have the following:

  • Pregnant

  • Currently breastfeeding (Can be sensitive due to change in hormones)

  • Fitzpatrick Skin Type I (redheads, white blonde, white/translucent skin, light eyes) –  This skin type is usually hypersensitive and the skin does not retain pigment well

  • Moles or scars in the area that you would like to have the PMU done – any “raised” area cannot have pigment implanted

  • Sunburn – please notify your technician as soon as possible if you are sunburned within 2 weeks of your procedure

  • Acne medications such as Accutane within the last year

  • Heart conditions/Pace Maker/Defibrillator (no exceptions due to being high risk)

  • Have taken or are currently taking medications that will increase bleeding and/or affect the retention of the pigment.

  • Auto-immune disorders of any kind (MS, RA, Lupus, etc) - your immune system may be compromised and the medications can prevent retention

  • Alopecia - hair loss due to auto-immune disease may change the texture of the skin and could possibly affect retention

  • Trichotillomania (Compulsive pulling of body hair) - due to constant pulling, scar tissue is prominent and color will not heal evenly/properly

  • For eyeliner treatment:  Using Glaucoma eye drops (eyelash follicles and eyelids are hypersensitive and will bleed easily and color will not retain)

  • For eyeliner treatment:  Upper or lower eyelid surgery (eyelids are thin and will bleed easily-color will not retain well)

  • Had shingles on your face – (no exceptions as PMU can cause flare ups)

  • Eczema, psoriasis or other dermatitis in or around the PMU area

  • For microblading treatment: Oily or severely oily skin  (The strokes will blur and usually there is little or no retention)

  • Extremely thin skin that is transparent (translucent) or very vascular

  • Large pores in the PMU area (pigment can migrate into the pores)

  • Piercing in the PMU area (pigments can migrate into/around the holes)

  • Deep wrinkles in the PMU area (pigments can run into/along the lines)

  • Hemophilia or other bleeding/clotting disorder

  • Platelet disorders (aggregation disorders that prevent platelets forming up)

  • Thyroid condition and taking medication for this condition (Hypo, Hyperthyroidism, Graves Disease, Hashimoto’s- results in thicker skin which could affect retention)

  • Rosacea that is advanced

  • MRSA, Herpes, warts or other infections (PMU can exacerbate these conditions and/or cause flare ups)

The above mentioned conditions can possibly cause the healing to be compromised or may cause the lack of pigment retention resulting in the procedure to be unsuccessful. 

Should any of the above mentioned conditions be applicable to you, it is advised to come in for a consultation before your PMU appointment. Each condition will be decided on a case to case basis.
