Ardencote Spa, Warwick launches Semi Permanent Make-Up with Charlene Pratley........
WHY CHOOSE CHARLENE PRATLEY?
Having been involved in the beauty industry and working for some of the leading cosmetic houses for over twenty years, I have learnt how important it is for women to look good.
I have discovered the amazing benefits of semi permanent make-up when it comes to easing the pressures of our busy lives. We all know how much better we feel after applying makeup, so imagine feeling that way all the time. Semi permanent make-up can subtly enhance what you already have or give you a completely different look altogether.
WHAT CAN I HAVE DONE?
- Lash Enhancement
- Lip Liner
- Lip Brush
Is it safe and does it hurt?
For each treatment I use a new, single use, disposable sterile needle conforming to the British and European Health and Safety standards.
It's no more painful than having your eyebrows tweezered but I do apply a topical numbing agent before treatment begins, to eliminate any discomfort.
What happens afterwards?
Normally after treatment the area becomes dry and flaky, I supply a gel to apply that will help moisturise and protect. Treatments to the lip area may occasionally cause a cold sore, using a topical treatment for a few days beforehand can help avoid this problem. Final results are seen at 28 days.
How long does it last?
Some pigment will remain in the skin permanently but will gradually fade over time. Results vary from client to client, but on average can last between 3 and 5 years. I recommend a top up after 18 months to boost colour and definition.
Can it be used for anything else?
Yes. Permanent cosmetics are used for paramedical work. They are ideal for replicating realistic nipples onto reconstructed breasts after a mastectomy or covering scars, hare lips or even the correction of existing procedures.
