Permanent makeup also known as permanent cosmetics, semi-permanent makeup, micro-pigmentation and cosmetic tattooing is an advanced form of cosmetic tattooing. However, the pigments (inks) used are not infused as deeply into the skin as normal tattooing.
Permanent make-up is considered permanent since the implanted pigment cannot be washed off and remains perfectly applied. In time, however, fading will occur and some or the entire colour will need to be reapplied.
The process is the same. It largely depends on what the technician likes to call it. It is preferable to call it permanent makeup, because although your permanent makeup will fade, there is no guarantee that it will completely disappear. So, to be safe, it is called permanent makeup.
The desired effect of permanent makeup lasts for about 24 months. However, the fading process is dependent on so many variables. For instance, if you like to sunbathe, it’s likely that your enhancement will fade faster. It is recommended that you refresh your enhancement every 12 – 15 months.
Micro-blading is a form of permanent make-up where a hand tool is used instead of a machine used to create beautiful, natural looking hair stroke brows.

A needling device is used to penetrate the skin. This will create thousands of micro wounds. Your body responds to the wounds by producing significant amount of collagen and elastin fibres. As a result, this will rejuvenate your face by filling in wrinkles and scars.

Micro-needling is harmless on all skin types since the epidermis is not damaged throughout treatment. The possibility of change in skin tones or hyper-pigmentation is small. Micro needling works on very sensitive regions (eyes, neck, back of hands) that can’t be addressed simply with other methods.
Micro-needling is absolutely not appropriate for people who have used Accutane in the last 90 days, have poor wound healing, have open wounds, have had skin radiation therapy in the last year, are struggling with any kind of abnormal skin disease, are pregnant, and have a history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring.
Micro punctures or micro wounds close up quickly within 1 hour. Therefore, infections are very rare.
Plasma aesthetic treatment is performed through a series of minute spots which are made using a Plasma Pen. This stimulates the instant contraction and tightening of loose skin fibres. The entire procedure is performed successfully without causing any bleeding nor damage to the surrounding skin tissues.
Normally a procedure takes about 30-60 minutes and you can start experiencing the results immediately. However, the best long-lasting results can start appearing after 3-5 weeks.
What areas can be treated with plasma aesthetics?
Plasma aesthetic treatments are used to remedy skin blemishes in several areas and for treating a variety of conditions as stipulated below;
While we encourage all genders to seek plasma aesthetic treatments for all kinds of loose skin blemishes, we conduct our research well to make sure that vulnerable groups are not exposed to the side effects of this treatment.

Well, this depends on the treatment area and the extent of skin damage. In many cases, such as the removal of skin tags, a single treatment session is enough to yield the desired results in a short span of time. In other treatments such as the eyelid tightening, the results of a plasma aesthetic treatment can be cumulative. However, additional treatment sessions may be needed depending on the severity of the saggy skin to achieve and maintain a striking result.
The plasma aesthetic treatment is safe and relatively pain-free, clients may report a mild discomfort during the procedure. An anaesthetic cream can be applied 30 minutes before the treatment procedure. A tingling or burning sensation may be felt afterwards due to the hot feeling in places during the treatment.
As with any other treatment, it might result in some mild side effects such as reddening of the skin and few others all of which subside after a short while.

Salt & saline tattoo removal is a common, effective approach to lightening tattoos. Although a slower process than other treatments, this method of tattoo removal is popular because it is safer than other tattoo removal procedures. Further, salt & saline treatment is ideal for those with darker skin tones, those with sensitive skin, and those who have had an allergic reaction to tattoo pigment. This method can lighten tattoos on any area, including around the eyes.
During the treatment, the client should expect some minor bleeding and some bruising. The treated area will also be tender for a few days. The skin should scab over and heal over the course of a few weeks. Fading will happen gradually over several months.
Individuals who are patient and willing to follow aftercare instructions are ideal candidates. Clients on blood-thinning medications or who expect immediate results are not ideal candidates for this treatment.
Clients should be realistic in their expectations. They should expect a lightening of the tattoo, but a full removal should not be expected. Clients should expect three to four procedures before they see desired results.
