The process can be used where people have gaps in their eyebrows (perhaps due to scarring), have only an eyebrow, would like darker or more defined eyebrows or brows that appear thicker.
Many people have uneven shaped lips which give a lopsided effect. Some lips blend into the face without a clearly defined border. Pigment implantation (cosmetic tattooing) can create an attractive lip line that enhances the shape of the mouth, and looks good with or without lipstick.
Pigment implant can give you a permanent made- up look.
If nature hasn’t given you a beauty spot you can create one in the place of your choice, through pigment implantation.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Pigment implantation gives you the benefits normally achieved through the skilled use of make-up. It changes your appearance in ways that you choose. The great advantage is its semi-permanent nature- you look good right around the clock.
You can shower, swim and perspire without a problem- there is no risk of these changes smearing or running or of lip colour “bleeding”.
HOW IS PIGMENT IMPLANTATION PERFORMED?
Using the finest quality needles, the pigment is introduced INTO the skin. The needle is dipped into the pigment, and the tip of the needle inserted into the skin, allowing the skin to absorb the colour. Needle penetration is quite shallow, which is the reason for the changes being only semi-permanent. As you replace your skin over the years, the changes gradually fade away.
The pigments used are of vegetable origin. There are good ranges of colours to enable colour selections that best enhance your appearance.
IS IT A TATTOO?
It is basically the same process, except that the needle is not inserted as deeply. Tattooing goes into the deepest layers of skin, and uses a permanent ink, which is the reason tattoos last forever.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
The pigment in the skin can last 3-5 years, depending on the colour used and individual variations in the skin replacement rates. The average length of time an implant lasts is 3 years. Lighter brow colours, which clients sometimes choose for first treatments, may be a little less definite and will start to fade out before 3 years. Some clients choose to have a retouch after 18 months to retain a darker colour and more defined line.
HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT TAKE?
Treatment times varies depending on the extent and nature of the treatment. An appointment time of 2 hours is generally allowed.
A short follow up appointment is generally made for 3-4 weeks time, to check colour and shape, and to make any adjustments, if necessary (e.g. sometimes a small area will require a little more colour).
DOES THE TREATMENT HURT?
Using a cotton bud dipped in local anesthetic and applied to the skin makes the treatment virtually painless.
ARE THERE ANY AFTER EFFECTS?
Swelling is mild and usually lasts 2-3 days. There may be some slight tightness as healing occurs. People who are prone to cold sores very occasionally develop a cold sore following treatment to the lips. This is due to the stress of the treatment, which causes the dormant virus to become active. If you have any symptoms which concern you, please feel free to ring my mobile to discuss your concern.
IS THE TREATMENT SAFE?
Yes. We are not aware of anyone with any adverse reactions. The treatments are performed under sterile conditions, with every precaution taken for the client and myself.
