Eye and Lip Micropigmentation
What is Micropigmentation?
Eye and Lip Micropigmentation is a semi-permanent makeup technique that creates long-lasting eyeliner drawing and lip colouring. Using special pigments, eyes and lips can be emphasized, brightened, or darkened successfully with the colour of your choice.
What can I expect during my visit?
A numbing cream is applied to the area prior to the treatment to prevent discomfort. Once the numbing cream sets in you may feel light scratches on the eyelid as the pigment is deposited or nothing at all depending on your pain threshold.
The lips are more sensitive and you may feel the needle but this will only cause a slight discomfort. The lips are first outlined along the contours and then filled in with the colour of your choice.
Eye and lip micropigmentation can take between 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete.
How many treatments are required for best results?
You only need one treatment to see results but a touch-up is recommended 4 to 6 weeks after the initial procedure to adjust the colour or density. After that, results should last one to three years, depending on your lifestyle and your skin type.
What is the downtime?
The eyelid and lips will be slightly swollen and the colour will appear darker than when the skin heals. Avoid sun exposure and apply lip balm to the lips to protect it.
After 1 to 2 weeks, the eyeliner and lip colour will start to flake and heal. You will see the full results after 4 weeks.
