Permanent makeup is able to correct nature’s imbalances — when one eyebrow is higher than the other. Or those that may be too light in color, too thin or sparse, and even non-existent— can be filled in with natural-looking hair strokes. Permanent makeup also helps to conceal or disguise alopecia, vitiligo, scaring, or stretch marks.
Permanent makeup provides a solution for those with poor vision or physical limitations who have difficulty in applying their own makeup. Permanent makeup visually restores age-related changes such as redefining lips that have lost definition and color with age.
What is LONG-TIME-LINER® Conture® Makeup?
LONG-TIME-LINER® Conture® Makeup is a superior European cosmetic procedure known as micro-pigmentation. Small drops of blended custom pigments are inserted into the outer layer of skin, creating the appearance of well-defined makeup. Pigments are medical grade, 100% hypoallergenic, and allergy tested for sensitive skin.
Why choose LONG-TIME-LINER® Conture® Makeup?
The ‘Conture 2000′ machine is a digital medical device utilizing high quality pigments manufactured by LONG-TIME-LINER®. The pigments are medical grade, hypoallergenic and are of mineral origin. The Conture 2000 and pigments have been awarded the ‘Prestige Award’ from the European Union (European equivalent of the FDA).
During your free consultation, a pre-drawing is done using makeup pencils that match the permanent pigments; this is very important because it will establish what can be achieved from the procedure. Jackie will also discuss which colors and shapes should be used to best compliment each individual’s face. This gives the client a good visual guide of what to expect from the final treatment. When the client is completely satisfied, the procedure can begin.
Permanent eyebrows help women and men whose eyebrow hair is lightly colored, thinning, sparse, or nonexistent. Eyebrow hair loss can result from years of tweezing/waxing, health conditions and/or medications.
A study of the shape and contours of the client’s face during the initial consultation allows for accurate correction to their symmetry, and enhancement to their shape. This is achieved by delicately creating the appearance of fine hairs with subtle shading in between. Eyebrows are light in color, too thin or sparse, and even those that are non-existent — are filled in with natural-looking hair strokes.
Your eyebrow color will gradually lighten and stabilize in the weeks after your procedure. If they heal lighter than you would like, they can be darkened with a second application or “touch-up”. Ideally, your second visit should be completed between 2 to 4 weeks post treatment. Because permanent makeup can fade over time, you can schedule maintenance visits as needed to keep your color looking fresh.
Eyeliner defines and enhances the beauty of the eyes.
Immediately after treatment
For a natural look, Jackie places pigment between the lashes without drawing an obvious line above or below them. The eyelash base will appear darker and fuller without the appearance of having eyeliner. If a more defined look is desired, the thickness of the line can be increased gradually over a few sessions until the desired look is achieved.
Permanent eyeliner provides safety and convenience to people with vision problems or unsteady hands. Eye doctors also recommend permanent eyeliner to those who wear contact lenses, have watery eyes, or may be allergic to traditional makeup. Imagine never having to worry about smudged eyeliner again!
Your eyeliner will gradually shrink and the color will lighten and stabilize during the weeks after your treatment. If it heals lighter or thinner than you desire, it can be darkened and thickened with a second application or “touch-up”. Ideally, your second visit should be completed between 2 to 4 weeks post treatment. Because permanent makeup can fade over time, you may schedule “touch-up” appointments as needed to keep your color looking fresh.
Full Face Technique
A free consultation is given before the first treatment in order to decide the best color and shape to compliment each individual’s face.
A pre-drawing is made with matching colored make-up pencils (color matched to pigments). “Drawing in” is a very important part of the process as it will establish what can be achieved from the procedure, giving the client a good visual guide of what can be expected from the final treatment.
If the client is completely satisfied, the procedure can commence. Usually the process is completed in two treatments.
For anyone who wants the appearance of wearing lipstick with a defined lip line. Lips can be reshaped and enlarged naturally by using full lip shading.
Imagine never having to worry about whether your lipstick has worn off, bled into the fine lines surrounding your mouth, or smeared onto your teeth. Permanent lip color can be applied to give more definition around the lip line and to redefine the shape of the lips, also correcting any imperfections in symmetry and shape.
The color for the lip and the desired technique is selected during the initial consultation; either lip liner with full lip color or blended lip liner. Blended lip line color is a more attractive technique than a lip liner by itself which can appear harsh and unnatural. Uneven lip borders are balanced with this treatment.
Follow-up and Maintenance Appointments
Your lips will gradually lighten and the color will stabilize in the weeks following your procedure. Lip tissue is different from regular skin, so it loses color following the first tattooing procedure. Your lips may heal lighter than you want, but they can be darkened with a second application of pigment at a follow-up visit “touch-up”. Ideally, your second visit should be completed between 2 to 4 weeks post treatment. Because permanent makeup can fade over time, you can schedule “touch-up” appointments as needed to keep your color looking fresh.
Permanent Makeup Corrections
Unfortunately, many clients choose a technician based on price or location, which can lead to unsatisfying results. Even though, permanent makeup fades over time inferior work can be devastating. Fortunately, many permanent makeup mistakes can be corrected or at least improved. Corrections may require multiple procedures to correct.
By utilizing different shades of flesh colored pigment permanent makeup can help many skin conditions to blend in with the surrounding skin tone; concealing their appearance.
Jackie has had great success in disguising many skin imperfections, such as:
|* Scarring from surgical procedures
* Burn marks
* Stretch marks
* Areola scarring
* Hair lip improvement
Men and women can benefit from restoring color to visible scars left from surgical procedures, burns or accidents, and stretch marks. Even when scarring is in front of the hairline or in the eyebrows, which can result in permanent hair loss, permanent makeup re-pigments lost flesh-tones and hair strokes can be simulated to restore a more natural look and allow more choices in hair styles.
