About permanent makeup

What is permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup is an increasingly popular treatment in beauty and in medicine. Women all over the world are choosing this procedure to enhance and compliment their features. Permanent makeup can visually diminish natural flaws such as asymmetrical features and discoloration. Permanent eyeliner or lip colour looks more natural than regular makeup. Medical cosmetic pigmentation can camouflage and disguise imperfections. This procedures such as areola pigmentation can be life changing such as areola re-pigmentation (after breast reconstruction) Areola procedures are FREE of charge in Elite Permanent Makeup Edinburgh.

Who benefits from permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup has incredibly wide range and can benefit most of us. Busy women in all walks of life are getting permanent makeup including many famous women, movie stars, athletes, politicians etc. Imagine how great it would be not to ever worry if your makeup will run or stain your clothes. However, as with medical procedures permanent makeup has its limitations and sometimes we are not able to perform the treatment. We will make sure this is all covered during first initial consultation.

How long does a procedure take?

Most procedures take around 3 hours to perform. We never want to rush this process, as the final outcome is extremely important to us and our clients. First of all, we want to make sure we create perfect shape before we start the procedure. Therefore, the time may vary from patient to patient depending on the difficulty of the treatment.

Is the procedure painful?

We will take every precaution to reduce discomfort, we will numb the area until you feel comfortable. We all have varying degrees of pain tolerance, so some of us may find it more painful than others. But when you see your new beautiful look, you will quickly forget about the discomfort.

How safe is the procedure?

This is something that is extremely important to us. Cleanliness and a sterile environment during permanent makeup application is a must. It not only protects our clients but also keeps us safe. Therefore, strict sanitation and sterilization guidelines are followed and single use sterile needles are used with each application.

How fast will it heal?

Depending on the area of treatment, it will heal within 2 weeks. Straight after the procedure you may experience a little swelling but this should go down between a couple of hours to 2-3 days. Over the following 2 weeks you will have to make sure you follow our aftercare routine, as this will have a great impact on the final result of your treatment. It is natural for your permanent makeup to scab and shade, even fade.  We can observe the final outcome of the procedure after the pigment has properly settled in to our skin. We recommend to book your retouch session after 4 weeks from the first procedure.
