EyesEnhance Eyelashes & Define Your Beautiful Eyes
Whether it be a natural lash enhancement to define the natural eye shape, or a bolder line to give extra wow to the eye area, permanent eyeliner is just an amazing treatment to make you feel amazing from the minute you open your eyes. Lucy will discuss the most suitable options at consultation, taking into consideration your eye shape, skin condition and age.
Lash enhancement – subtle liner through the lash line
Eyeliner – bolder line through the lash line and above with a slightly thicker tail
Liquid liner effect – Bold eyeliner with a defined wing.
This is a perfect treatment for those who feel bare without make-up. This treatment will enhance the shape of your eyes giving definition, contour and fuller, thicker looking lashes. Eyelash enhancement is a fine line tattooed adding beautiful definition to your eyes. Eyeliner is a thin line tattooed between the lashes. Liquid liner is a much stronger treatment, tattooing a bolder line above the lash line.
Prior to your actual treatment, stop using any sensitizing skincare products (like retinol or glycolic acid) around the eye area for a full week before your appointment to avoid irritation. You'll want to come to your appointment with clean skin that's completely free of makeup.
Whether it’s a lip tattoo, semi permanent eyebrows or permanent eyeliner you’re after, there are a whole lot of shapes, thicknesses and colours to decide upon. It would be good if you’ve had a good think about this before your appointment, so we can narrow down your options at an early stage, although we can also provide advice on what is best going to suit your facial shape.
We will give you full aftercare instructions to take home with you, as well as a soothing balm, so that you know how to look after your treatment over the coming days. Immediately following treatment your body will form a small scab over the treated area, but after two weeks this should naturally fall off and be replaced by new skin.
The process of new skin growth and healing of the area can affect the colour and shape of the treated area. For this reason, we ask you to return to the clinic for a touch up around 4 – 6 weeks after your procedure. The retouch appointment will be shorter than the main appointment, and will simply be filling in or recolouring where your body has altered our work.
HOW LONG DOES A PROCEDURE TAKE?
Usually, each procedure appointment is one and a half to two hours. The majority of the time is spent in adequately consulting and selecting the appropriate color for your skin; in measuring and artistically drawing on the planned procedure prior to actually implanting the color; and allowing for the application of topical anesthetics. Complete after-care instructions will be reviewed verbally and then sent home in written copy form.
CAN I HAVE EYELINER AND LIPS AND EYEBROWS ALL DONE AT ONCE?
Yes, a full-face procedure will take 3-4 hours. In fact, one advantage is that your aftercare and healing time for all the areas is consolidated into the same time frame. However, some people choose to do the procedures as individual appointments, and some will do only brows and eyeliner and return for lips later, etc.
IS IT THE SAME AS A TATTOO?
It is a form of tattoo, although different techniques and pigments are used. Anytime color is implanted into the dermis of the skin, it is technically a tattoo, regardless of the manner in which it is performed.
WHAT IS MICROPIGMENTATION?
This is the name of the process used to implant color in permanent makeup. Many people refer to permanent makeup by fancy names such as micropigmentaton, dermal pigmentation etc. It is all correct, however, it truly is a tattoo process.
IS THE PROCEDURE SAFE?
Unlike many technicians that re-use or sterilize via an autoclave the various components of their equipment, we use all pre-packaged, sterile and disposable needles and needle casings. With the highly technologically advanced digital implantation system used at Newport Permanent Makeup, we use medical-grade needles that are encased in a special permanent cartridge. This patented cartridge system contains an internal diaphragm that prevents any bodily fluids and airborne contaminants from entering into the system. This ensures that you will receive the safest, most sterile form of cosmetic tattooing available.
IS IT REALLY PERMANENT? HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Some people may need the color darkened after twelve months.
WHAT FACTORS AFFECT HOW LONG THE COLOR LASTS?
The skill of the technician, the quality of the pigments used, the individual's skin type, how dark the original color is, sun exposure, and use of exfoliating skin-care products. First the color must be put into the dermis layer of the skin, if not, it will come off as soon as the epidermis goes through a normal shedding cycle. The sun, exfoliating products such as Retin-A, and regular swimming contribute to premature fading. Regular use of sunscreen will help prevent premature fading. A soft brown eyeliner color will fade several months faster than a black eyeliner color.
WHAT IS EYELASH ENHANCEMENT AND HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM EYELINER?
For a more natural, less dramatic effect than is achieved with the look of full eyeliner, eyelash enhancement can be done. The color is implanted at the base of the lash line only. This procedure can even be done on men too and simply serves to define the eye lash line, make the lash base look fuller and more dense. This is great for those that don’t usually wear eyeliner but want the eyes to stand out more. All eyeliner starts with lash enhancement to color in the spaces between the eyelashes. The color is then widened until the preferred thickness is achieved.
