So you want the lips … what happens now?
Before we can go ahead with any treatment, it's important to have a Complimentary Consultation with me. This gives me the opportunity to ensure you are suitable for a Permanent Cosmetic treatment. I will offer professional and honest advice on what procedure would be best for you and how to get the best possible healed results. This is also a great time for you to ask questions and to make sure I’m the right PMU Technician for you before committing to a procedure. A patch test is completed during the Consultation. (It is important to inform me at this stage what medications you are taking as this can affect treatment).
Booking your Treatment
Once you are happy for the procedure to go ahead (and the patch test is OK) you can book your Initial Treatment. A booking fee will be required in order to secure an appointment. Once I have confirmation of this I will send over the pre-procedures for Permanent Cosmetics, it is important you read them and follow all advice given particularly if you suffer with cold sores.
Your First Appointment
You will be warmly welcomed into my clinic and made comfortable. Prior to treatment you will complete various forms. I will clean and numb the lip area and with your permission take before photos (these are great to look back on!) I will take the time to draw in a crisp lip border as my template. I never rush! Once we are happy with the shape, I will start to look at the best pigment colour – taking into consideration your Fitzpatrick Type, Skin Tone, Skin Type and if you have any existing PMU. (I turn into a little Scientist sometimes, mixing pigments together in order to get the right one!) Once we have agreed the shape and pigment colour we get to work! The procedure can take up to 2.5/ 3 hours, numbing cream is used throughout to keep you comfy! You will feel a slight “scratchy” sensation, but it is very bearable (I speak from experience) Once the Lips have been completed and you are happy with them, I will provide you with an aftercare kit including how to look after your new tattooed lips, it is vital you read, understand and follow the aftercare.
Perfecting Top Up
Before you leave your initial appointment, I will book you in for your Perfecting Top Up. This allows me the opportunity to perfect the Lips. This needs to be around 6 weeks after the initial treatment and is included in the initial price. This is a very important step in finalising the desired look - you can then really enjoy those LIPS! Perfecting top up treatments must be completed within the agreed timescale as set out.
Annual Colour Boosts
Permanent Makeup does fade over time and exposure to the sun and various skin types are contributing factors. In order to keep your Lip Tattoo looking fresh and fabulous I offer discounted Colour Boosting Treatments to clients who have had their initial tattooing treatment with me.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me, I would be happy to help.
