If you still haven't heard about Semi Permanent Makeup then where have you been?!
SPMU has been around for years, but over recent time its popularity has grown massively and celebs worldwide setting huge trends for perfectly groomed brows - now everyone else wants a piece of the action! Semi Permanent Makeup is the beauty treatment of NOW and whilst eye and lip treatments are popular, highly sought after Semi Permanent Brows are the real star of the show. Despite the growing demand many people don't actually know what the process involves, so here is a quick blog post that will hopefully answer all your questions.
Semi Permanent Makeup, or micro-pigmentation as it is otherwise known, involves implanting medical grade pigment into the upper layers of the skin to create a natural looking makeup effect that lasts. Before that can take place a patch test and full medical health check will be carried out to ensure your suitability for the treatment and that you don't have any sensitivities to any of the pigments or materials that will be used. A £50 deposit is required to secure your appointment, and once this has been received your pre-treatment pack and patch test kit will be sent to you in the post.
On the day of your appointment Maisie will carry out a full consultation to discuss your expectations and establish what you are looking to achieve with Semi Permanent Makeup. This is also a great opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have regarding the treatment. A 'before' picture will be taken of your natural brow area which will remain confidential – this is a great way to see the difference after your enhanced look.
Whilst Maisie is discussing your treatment with you, a numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to ensure minimum discomfort during the procedure. Taking into consideration your skin type, hair colour and personal style, together you and your artist will select the most suitable colour for you from our wide range of KB Pro Pigments.
After assessing your face shape, Maisie will measure out the desired brow shape and pencil on a template. Its not a 'one size fits all' kind of deal with brows - each individual client is different from the last so brows are completely bespoke. This drawing can be tweaked as many times as necessary until you are 100% happy with design. Then and ONLY then will be begin the treatment! A state of the art digital machine is then used to implant the pigment into the skin. This part of the process takes about 90 minute. Some clients compare the sensation to that of having your brows plucked. Generally speaking the treatment is fairly pain free, some of my clients are so relaxed they fall asleep mid treatment!
Aftercare is essential to ensure proper healing of your brows. Maisie will cover the do's and don'ts with you following your treatment. Contact details will be provided should you need any further advise during the healing process. A re-touch treatment will be arranged for 4-6 weeks post procedure to assess how you have healed and many any final adjustments to perfect your semi permanent makeup enhancement.
