F A Q


Micro-Needling

Micro‑needling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that can relax and smooth out scars, pores, wrinkles, stretch marks and help to even skin texture and pigmentation. It is performed with a special digital machine that will place fine needles with high‑speed in the lower and higher dermis of skin layer.
Micro‑needling is 100 % safe and natural. There is no poison injected into the skin, and no tissue destruction. Micro‑needling can safely be used on all parts of the body and for all skin types.
Most people do not feel any pain during the procedure and some may feel discomfort. In order to help with discomfort topical anaesthetic cream is used to keep the patient comfortable during the procedure.
Treatment can last 1‑3 hours while multiple visits might be needed depending on the scar or wrinkle itself, skin type and person’s ability to recover. Clients by average do 2‑4 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart, but some people may decide that the results of the first one are good enough and not need any more. You can expect to see improvements on your skin over the course of several weeks for up to several months as collagen production still continues. After the procedure, wrinkle lines may not disappear completely but will be far less noticeable, not as deep and much smoother. Effects from needling are expected to last somewhere between 3 to 8 years.


Permanent   Make‑Up

Permanent make‑up is cosmetic tattooing. The specialized techniques of permanent make‑up are often referred to as micro‑pigmentation, micro‑pigment implantation or dermagraphics. The permanent make‑up is essentially a technique by which coloured pigment is deposited into the upper layer of the skin (dermis) by small, sterile micro‑needle. It can be used correctively, in areas where hair or skin colour is missing or for cosmetic purpose visually enhancing certain areas of the body.
It is similar to permanent tattoo, but I apply different techniques; utilize different needles and a specialized ink.
People with various skin discolouration issues or scars, suffering from alopecia, people with areola loss, those with vision challenges who have difficulty applying their cosmetics, people with muscle and bone related conditions such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis, individuals who suffer from Parkinson’s disease, stroke survivors, those sensitive or allergic to conventional cosmetics, and all healthy people too busy to spend their time applying and refreshing make‑up every day.
Yes. All procedures are safe. The pigments I use are made of natural minerals, they are non‑toxic and hypoallergenic. I pay great attention to safety and proper sterilization and disinfection of the equipment. Needles I use are pre‑packaged and new, opened in your presence and discarded after each procedure. Although they may occur, allergic reactions to any type of tattooing pigments on the body or on the face are considered extremely rare.
This may vary for each individual because of different pain threshold and skin sensitivity, but generally permeant make‑up is not painful. Most people will only experience some kind of discomfort. Various topical anaesthetics are applied before procedure for pain and discomfort management.
Permanent make‑up last quite a long time. However, as with any tattoo or colourant it will fade with time due to skin’s exposure to the sun and other environmental elements, and through natural skin exfoliation. For that reason periodic colour refreshing might be needed. Longevity varies from person to person depending on their skin, life style, the colours used for the procedure (lighter colours fade faster than darker ones) and various skin products that person may use.
You may expect some swelling and puffiness in the affected area for 2‑3 days depending on the procedure. Some flaking is also possible for the period of up to 2 weeks. Colour fully settles in the skin in about 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure, but it is expected to appear darker during the first week.
After the procedure do not expose your healing skin to direct sun or tanning beds. Avoid steamy showers, sauna, Jacuzzis and swimming in chlorinated pools. Do not pick, scrub or scratch the treated area, because the colour may heal unevenly in addition to some potential risks of scarring and infections.
You should avoid applying make‑up 10 days after the procedure in order to allow the skin to heal properly.
It is not recommended to get permanent make‑up if you are pregnant or nursing because your hormones will be out of balance and your skin is quite sensitive during this period. Even though there is no age limit for getting permanent make‑up you should be at least 18 years old in order to make decisions relating to permanent make‑up. If you are diabetic and have healing issues please consult your physician before having any procedure. If you have a rosacea (redness) in your face with thin or sensitive skin you will not be good candidate for the eyebrow procedure because your skin will not be able to accept much colour. Reasonable results may be achieved only with multiple treatments and added cost.
Permanent make‑up may not be very effective covering really dark or surgical scars. In those cases you may consider waterproof concealer make‑up instead.
If you already have existing permanent make‑up with another specialist I may not be able to perform new procedure unless it is almost invisible. In this case I recommend that you remove the previous tattoo.
Most likely yes, but you should be aware that lower prices come with lower quality. I try to keep my prices competitive while providing high quality service through using superior pigments and having highest standards when it comes to safety and customer satisfaction.


EliminInk

EliminInk is the most effective tattoo removal treatment for all pigment colours. It is less invasive, less expensive and less painful than laser and surgical removal. It is effective for all tattoos, regardless of the colour.
EliminInk is inserted into the dermal layer of the skin via permanent make‑up device, an instrument that functions similarly to a standard tattoo machine. EliminInk contains a magnesium oxide solution and scar inhibitor. Once implanted into the dermal layer of the skin, EliminInk binds with the ink and draws it to the surface through oxidation. Than it forms a scab on the skin. Within few weeks the scab falls off, taking the ink that was drawn to the surface with it. The healing process take up to 2‑4 months and then the client can repeat the treatment, if necessary.
Procedure time varies and depends on the size of the tattoo removed. Each 2 x 2 inch area takes over 1 hour to complete.
In terms of pain the treatment feels about the same as getting a tattoo. Topical cream is used to minimize pain or discomfort during the procedure.
