Do you find it difficult applying make-up yourself? Maybe you're a sporty person bored of the dubious claims of waterproof make-up? Or perhaps you simply want to look perfectly groomed all of the time without the effort?
Permanent Eye Treatments are a long-lasting solution for anyone who wants perfect eyes without the hassle. Mellissa can create anything from subtle lash enhancements to perfectly defined eyeliners; she can give you a perfect classic pencil look, a liquid liner with a seamless flick or a sultry eye. However subtle or dramatic, an eye treatment can transform your morning routine - you'll wake up with meticulously defined eyes that give you an instant, wide-awake and fresh faced start to the day.
Permanent Eye Treatments can also be a life-changing solution for those who suffer from alopecia, for chemotherapy patients and for people who have lost their lashes as a result of an accident or injury.
Whatever your reasons, Beautissima can help make an incredible difference to your appearance.
What are Permanent Eyes?
It's all about creating illusions. To give the appearance of fuller lashes and more defined eyes, Mellissa applies a series of tiny dots between the lashes combined with some shading. For further definition Mellissa uses a highly precise Micropigmentation tool to create everything from a soft and shaded line to a more extravagant Alexa Chung inspired Latino flick.
The treatment in detail:
A Permanent Eye treatment is a three-part process that is usually completed in two appointments. This consists of an initial consultation, the treatment itself and a follow-up appointment, all of which are included in the price quoted and are listed in detail below:
Megan Fox, Cheryl Cole, Twiggy or somewhere in between? The Beautissima process starts with a thorough one-to-one consultation. You can either keep your consultation separate from your treatment or, as most clients prefer, you can combine it with your treatment.
You will be asked about the look you want and your reasons for considering Permanent Make-Up; whether it's a fresh face for the school run, a polished look for work or a more dramatic transformation to match your hectic social life. Subtle or celebrity glamorous - it's your choice. Whatever your reasons, you can expect the same honest advice and an expert opinion before you commit to any treatment.
All the options will be talked through and the whole process explained, as well as going through a few essential health checks, so you're completely comfortable before starting your treatment. Your trip to Beautissima should be an enjoyable experience so we'll do everything to make it feel that way.
Once a decision has been made, Mellissa will draw on your eyes with a make-up pencil and won't start the tattooing process until you are totally happy.
Using a specialist low frequency tattooing machine, Mellissa will gently apply pigment to the skin using very fine needles. There should be little discomfort felt, although you may feel small 'vibrations' as she works. The treatment takes about two to two and a half hours and you will be given breaks should you need them. Initially, the colour of your eyes will appear 40%-50% darker than the pigment chosen but this will fade within 7-10 days.
The next part of the treatment is a follow-up appointment which is usually 6-12 weeks after your initial treatment. The reason for this second appointment is to go over the treated area to add more pigment because after healing takes place, there is the possibility that one or two areas might not have held the pigment as well as the rest.
How long does it last?
As the name suggests, permanent cosmetics won't wash off at the end of the day, week or year, however the amount of time it lasts varies from person to person dependent on various different factors such as: skin characteristics, use of certain medication, natural skin undertones, personal pH balance of skin (which can vary from visit to visit), diet, alcohol intake and smoking and post treatment care. The intensity of the colour will fade as your skin regenerates, which is why we strongly advise that you come back to Beautissima for a Colour Boost roughly every 6-18 months to restore colour intensity. As Mellissa says "it's important to remember that Permanent Make-Up is a low maintenance not a no maintenance treatment". This is a good thing because as we age, our preferences change and trends change. Over time your permanent cosmetics can change with you.
How long does the treatment take?
A Permanent Make-Up treatment takes between 2-3 hours.
