Healing process and touch up

The result of the procedure is determined by the following; medication, skin characteristics (dry, oily, sun-damaged, thick or thin skin type), Personal pH balance of your skin, alcohol intake and smoking, post procedure after care. Upon completion of the procedure there may be swelling and redness of the skin, which will subside within 1-4 days dependent on lifestyle. Immediately after the procedure the enhancement can be 30 to 50% darker than the desired result and it can take between 4-10 days to lighten. The true colour will be visible 1 month after each application, and that the colour may vary according to skin tones, skin type, age and skin conditions. Some skins accept colour more readily than others and no guarantee of an exact effect or colour can be given. It is very important to wipe the pigmented area with sterile water, cotton pad and then apply thin layer of ointment on the first day. The reason is to remove the lymph otherwise your eyebrows will be covered with big scabs. If the client follows the aftercare, she/he will get small scabs – thin layer of crust that will be peeling of itself. It is very important not to scratch eyebrows (client can feel itching) as you can easily loose the pigment together with scratching. If this happen, mostly there is no pigment left and skin can be white or even reddish because of irritation. The irritation will disappear in a few days. Sometimes the client can see redness the same day after the treatment. This is also normal and it disappears in the next few days. The touch up is recommended no earlier than 30 days. During the touch up, the client can add more strokes (some can disappear during healing), choose warmer/darker colour, add some shape.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT HAVING A PROCEDURE
Plan to book your appointment out in advance

Before Treatment
A full and in depth consultation is carried out at the time of your appointment to have your procedure done, to understand your skin suitability and realistic expectations of permanent make-up. All colors and shapes are customized to each person! I will always draw on first to make sure this is YOUR desired shape, no surprises!  A consent form will be filled out to ensure we have all the medical information necessary for the procedure. Your photo will be taken and we will apply topical anesthetic cream to start your numbing process so you will be comfortable during the procedure and the initial measurements will be marked and drawn on first to make sure this is YOUR desired shape, color and get your approval before we start.

During Treatment
A topical anesthetic will be re-applied during procedure keeping you comfortable. A fine needle with the use of a top of the trade computerized machine will be used to implant the dermatologically tested and state of the art pigments into the skin (NOT body art inks as they are not fit for a natural look on the face)

After Treatment
When the treatment is finished some after care cream will be applied. You will be advised on after care and will be given an after-care leaflet. The treatment area may feel sensitive. With eye liner or lip treatments you may have some swelling which should settle down within a few hours.

Follow Up Treatment
You will be booked in for your follow up treatment to complete the final adjustments. (The perfecting visit) This will ensure that your enhancement will be beautiful. Your follow-up appointment no sooner than 8 weeks from your initial treatment

Will 3D Eyebrows work well for me?
If you have extremely thick oily skin, the 3D eyebrow technique may NOT work well for you but we are happy to do it for you as long as you have a realistic expectation. The constant production of oil will cause the hairstrokes to heal with a diffused, softer look. Your end result will look more powdered than you would expect. If additional touchups are needed there will be a charge.

  • If you are a frequent smoker, your pigment will fade sooner.
  • Unhealthy compromised skin due to health issues, medications and over use of (anti aging,acne skincare, or anything with the inredients acid ect..) are all factors in the outcome. To keep your hair strokes looking good, a refresher appointment is suggested every 1 to 3 years. Results vary with each client and health of skin. If you have more difficult skin there will be additional charges if more work needs to be done.
  • Additional touch-up appointments will be charged depending on how much work is to be done.

Who Are We?

Hi I’m Demi! I love people and people love to feel beautiful, which is the reason I’ve spent last few years engulfed in doing makeup. I believe if you feel comfortable in your skin, then you can spend your energy loving others and enjoying life instead of worrying and being self-conscious. Is makeup the best way to gain self confidence? No way!  So I hope I can help your life be a little bit happier, and perhaps more colorful.

What We Do Best?

I have always been fascinated by human faces. I still remember how obsessed I was with drawing faces ever since kindergarten, and being a makeup artist was the first dream I ever had.

Although my upbringing made me a scientist, my passion for makeup has not waned. Instead it has grown stronger during my journey of self discovery. Makeup is my art, the human face is my canvas.  I am inspired  by every person I see, and harmonizing inner beauty with physical uniqueness has become my ultimate goal of creation. As makeup trends are always changing and each individual has different needs, I don't limit myself to certain styles. My portfolio is a true reflection of my creativity and versatility. I am also extremely lucky being married to a talented photographer, who always supports me and helped me build up a beautiful portfolio.

Nothing is more fulfilling than making people feel beautiful. I am friendly, sensitive, understanding and professional.

Trust me, I will bring out the best in you.
