Also known as permanent make-up or micro-pigmentation, cosmetic tattooing is the placement of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. The result is a shadow of colour which provides the appearance of flawlessly applied make-up or natural skin tone.
You can swim, sleep, perspire, play sport, wash your hair, eat and still look GREAT! It won't wash off and lasts for years.
While cosmetic tattooing is for all intents and purposes the same as conventional tattooing, it is a unique procedure in many ways. The most important difference is with the objectives of the two.
A conventional tattoo is designed to stand out and be clearly defined whereas the essence of cosmetic tattooing is to highlight natural facial lines and features in a way that the tattoo itself is not obvious.
Cosmetic tattoo technicians are essentially qualified beauticians trained in tattoo procedures. Their aim is to accentuate beauty, not just to produce art!!
A cosmetic tattoo treatment is especially beneficial to people who have allergies to traditional cosmetics, who are active sports or gym enthusiasts, or people who are in the public eye and want to look their best all all times without worry. People with disorders resulting in hair loss, or with poor vision, or who are suffering from dexterity challenges that make applying make-up difficult, find that a cosmetic tattoo offers an excellent solution for their beauty needs and their self esteem.
Beauty is in the eyebrow holder! Eyebrows frame the eyes and lift the face. They can be shaped and defined or repaired from over plucking or hair loss with a Feather-stroke tattoo.
Feather-stroke eyebrow tattoos are ideally suited to the woman who has permanently loss hair filaments in her eyebrows. The technique involves applying a fine hair-stroke (or feather-stroke) to the area to replicate the missing filaments. An example of a feather-stroke tattoo may been seen here.
An eyeline treatment is ideal for people with small pale pink eyes needing definition and shape, oily skin which causes make-up to smear, contact lenses wearers, allergic eyes, people with poor eyesight, or people who like to wear eyeliner to enhance their eyes. Top and bottom eyelines can be fine or wide, tapered or straight.
A cosmetic lipline tattoo can be used to enhance the contour of the lips towards a more pleasant, youthful, even pouty or sensual look. Ideal for people who have no definite lip shape, uneven lips or lips that have lost their shape as a result of cold sores or injury. Colour is implanted in a fine line on the outer edge of the lips, giving a lovely defined shape to the mouth.
A full-lip tattoo or lipline blend is beneficial to pale or sun damaged lips or simply so your lips look great 24hrs a day hassle free!
Strictly speaking, a cosmetic tattoo is a semi-permanent treatment. Over time with exposeure to the environment, creams and as we exfoliate, a cosmetic tattoo will fade. The rate of this faded is dependent on the type of tattoo, recipient's skin qualities and lifestyle and the skill of the technician.
Regular retouching will be required to ensure the tattoo is always looking its best. AS a guide, eyebrow microblading and feathering techniques will require retouching every 12 months. lips - 2-3 years and eyeliner - 4-5 years.

Yes, a little but the result far outweighs the pain. Everybody has a different pain threshhold so some feel it more than others. The pain is far less then that associated with conventional tattooing as pigments are placed much shallower under the skin.
Some clients take pain relieving tablets prior to the treatment. A topical anaesthetic cream may be used to numb the treatment area if the client desires.
The healing time is minimal for all treatments. A small percentage of people have some swelling, but work and all other activities can be continued immediately.
During an initial consultation, we will be able to provide an indication on the final result based on your skin properties, along with which treatments you would most benefit from. Normally the procedure is completed in a one hour appointment which, in some cases, may be performed immediately after the consultation.
Many things can alter the end result appearance of a cosmetic tattoo: skin pigment, acidity, oils levels, medication and neglecting to follow the tattoo home care instructions. We insist that all her clients return for a review. In most cases a small retouch is required.
While a cosmetic tattoo can last as long as 4 years, an annual re-touch will prolong a cosmetic tattoo for may more years.
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, which is emitted into the skin in the form of tiny beams. These beams converge under the skin at different depths and create a minuscule source of thermal energy. The heat produced stimulates collagen so that it grows and repairs. Collagen is the agent that works to tighten the skin. The active role of collagen tends to decrease as we get older, which you will notice when the skin on your face becomes loose. Then, as HIFU reactivates the collagen, your skin will have a tighter feel and appearance.
You should see results after 3-4 weeks after the treatment as the collagen rejuivanates. Results will continue to improve in the following weeks.
This will depend on your skin, needs, and expectations. The procedure can produce long-lasting results, but some people may benefit from a top-up treatment. However, most of our clients see effective results from only one treatment.
It is important to remember that this will vary from person to person. Results can last for up to 6 months. If you take care of your skin, then you will see long-lasting effects from just one treatment.
HIFU Skin Tightening is ideal for treating signs of ageing around the eyes, and mouth. It can also help to reduce sagging skin on the cheeks. Depending on the area of the face, different intensities of the ultrasound will be used. In particular, lower levels of ultrasound are used around the mouth and above the eyes, because the skin is thinner and more sensitive. Furthermore, the HIFU Face Lift can also target skin on the neck and decolletage. This helps to reduce signs of double chins, and leave you with a tighter and firmer neck.
Discomfort levels vary from person to person. The procedure can be a little uncomfortable on certain areas of the face where there is less volume, for example around the jawline or across the top lip. HIFU treatment is often described as a tingling feeling which can become more intense in these areas.
The HIFU Face Lift is a safe and non-invasive procedure. Our equipment is certified by the Therapeutical Goods Administration, Australia.
This is the best part about the HIFU Face Lift - there is no downtime! You may experience mild redness after the treatment, but this will fade within a few days. After the treatment, you can resume your daily activities immediately, with brighter and fresher feeling skin.
