What should I be aware off?
Permanent makeup is a matter of trust. Not every institution stais true to what they promise. Besides a qualifying training from the market leader, the quality of the colors used, the technical possibilities of the pigmentation device and the standard of hygiene are the most important factors. In addition to these basic standards, only a understanding and considerate consultation will lead to a professional result.
How long does permanent make up last?
The time period until it has completely faded can be up to 10 years.
Depending on the method of work, quality of the colors used, skin type, the following lifestyle choices and habits influence durability and intensity:
e.g.: extensive exposure to sun, frequent sauna visits and facial peelings can speed up the fading process.
To obtain the original result a retouch after 1- years is sufficient.
Is there any discomfort or pain during the Procedure?
Depending on the individual’s pain threshold, minimal discomfort may be felt during the procedure. Most individuals experience a slight scratching sensation with limited to no discomfort. Naturally I cater to my clients needs, to make the treatment experience as pleasant as possible.
Will it bleed?
With the Long-Time-Liner® method only the first layer of skin is penetrate. This keeps the deeper, blood perfused tissue completely untouched and intact.
Are there any risks? How safe is this?
Most important for a save treatment is the usage of the top modern ultr-fine- pigmentation device by Long-Time-Liner®. In addition all work utensils are disinfected, or sterilized by the producer, like all the one time needles with which the color is infused into the skin. I work in line with the highest hygiene regulations to assure the best results possible.
How long will the procedure take?
Usually every treatment takes about 1-2 hours. I spend a major part of this time to choose together with you the perfect form and color and answer all your open questions, followed by the pigmentation process.
Can more then one area be pigmentated in one day?
Yes, without any problems. A complete pigmentation of eyebrow, eyeliner and lips will take at average 4-5 hours.
Do I need vacation?
Unlike plastic surgery, it is absolutely unnecessary to take vacation for permanent makeup. Immediately after the treatment you can back to you every day life. In the treated areas light swelling might occur, which will fade within a few hours.
Is there a preferred time of year?
There is no preferred season for getting a pigmentation. But generally you should be aware, that you need to avoid direct sunlight, peelings, sauna and chlorine water for 7 days after the treatment.
When will I see the final result?
Because of the protective color composition of the Long-Time-Liner® method the final perfect result will be visible after 2 to max. 3 treatments. After each treatment there will be excess color on the skin, which will disappear through the natural skin regeneration. Since there is a mandatory 2 week period between treatments, the total time comes to a minimum of 4-6 weeks.
Can the end result be different then what I expected?
A major part of my personal consultation is to paint the desired result with a special makeup pen, paying attention to every last detail. Since this is done before I begin with the pigmentation process, it allows you to see the end result beforehand.
What happened to my natural eyebrows/eyelashes during a pigmentation?
Since only the first layer of skin is worked on all your eyebrows and eyelashes will stay completely intact. The decision is also yours concerning the shape and natural look of the end result.
What’s the difference to a tattoo?
Tattoos are pigmented into the middle and lower layers of the skin, the Dermis and Hypodermis, where they last for life. These tattoos cannot be altered in shape or color and cannot be easily removed. Pigmented make up after the Long-Time-Liner® Method only penetrates the first layer of the skin, the individual has the option to keep the semi-permanent makeup longer, change the shape and color or let it fade away. Also the colors and the coloring technique are different from a classic body tattoo.
What colors will be used?
The pigment colors are anti-allergy tested, antiseptic, inorganical, mineral origin and MRI exam safe. Only the Conture® 2000 Colors are manufactured in accordance with the EU-Rules 93/04 EWG as medical products. The investigations by European Inspection Authority (TÜV) have been executed by means of REM/EDX Analysis and Gas chromatography and the pigment colors are certified and registered in conformity with the EU-Rules 93/04 EWG for Medical Products since June 1998 as inactive implants. The state of the line development ensures, that no blue, green, gray, or purple tints will appear in the contours.
Can you correct my old permanent Makeup?
Unfortunately it’s not uncommon that clients are unhappy with the results of other methods and colors then the ones I use. I am capable of adjusting shape as well as coloration in cases of blue, green, gray, purple or turquoise colored results, and improve the overall result.
What do I need to be aware of in terms of Chemotherapy?
Many concerned individuals have the wish to avoid the therapy induced optical side effects. I would highly recommend an eyebrow and/or eyelid pigmentation in these situations. To ensure optimum coloration results it is important to start your pigmentation session before your first scheduled chemotherapy treatment. A later beginning will make the coloration process exceedingly difficult.
