SEMI-PERMANENT MAKE-UP


What is Semi-Permanent Make up?

It is a process where advanced pigments are inserted into the dermal layer of the skin, which (after their second visit), should last for several years. Clients are patch tested prior to the first procedure to see if they my have any allergic reaction to the pigment or anaesthetic. 99.9% of people do not have any reaction at all.

How Long Does it Take to Have a Treatment?

You will need to allow 1.5 hours for your first procedure. If you intend to have a "full face" (3 procedures together) then you should allow 3 hours in total.

How Long Does it Last?

Semi-Permanent Make-up should last for several years. Over that time the colour will fade and break down. It is suggested that you come back to us for a top up" procedure every 18 months/2 years to keep the look complete and fresh. A "top up" appointment is half the current full treatment price.

Does It Hurt?

Some clients feel no discomfort at all - others feel minimal discomfort. We use topical anaesthetics to control pain tolerance. Clients say that having a procedure is similar to having their eyebrows plucked or their legs waxed. Once the procedure is complete there is no discomfort whatsoever.

Will I Be Able to Go Out Without Everyone Noticing?

After a procedure the area treated will be darker, more intense. This will last for a few days until the area exfoliates and the true colour emerges. Generally it is only you who notices the darker colour. If anaesthetic is used you may swell slightly - this will go down usually by the end of the day. It is suggested that if you are having an eyeliner procedure that you bring a pair of dark glasses with you (as you may look as if you have been crying).A little inconvenient but the long term results are well worth it.


What About After Care?

You will be given a comprehensive after care guide after the treatment, along with verbal instructions.


TATTOO REMOVAL


Does it hurt?

The treatment is very similar to being tattooed. Most clinics can apply topical anesthetic to numb the skin prior to treatment, please enquire about this at your chosen clinic.

Does it work?
Due to the unique nature of every tattoo removal cannot be guaranteed, however the success rate of body tattoo removal is around 92% while for permanent cosmetics is 100%. Based on data from cosmetic dermatology trial 2001, (removal defined as no appreciable colour remaining after 1 treatment). New treatment methods now use multiple treatments over a greater timeframe for better results and lower risk. The eventual success can be effected by the condition and circumstances of the original tattoo.

Will it leave a permanent scar?

As with any process that breaks the skin there can be a risk of scarring. The removal process is well tolerated by the skin and the scarring rate in a published series of 98 patients (Cosmetic Dermatology April, 2001) was 0% for permanent makeup and 6% for body tattoos compared to laser with a 5% chance that a permanent scar will form**. New treatment methods are more conservative so the risk of scarring is reduced. Usually if you did not suffer any complications when the tattoo was originally applied, do not suffer from hypertrophic or keloid scarring and the treated area is cared for properly then the risk of scarring should be minimal. If the original tattoo has been applied poorly, (tattoo is scarred or raised or has become very blurred) then attempted removal can be more liable to scarring. Please discuss this with your technician.

How much will it cost to get my tattoo removed?
Please see the chart on the right for a rough idea on recommended prices. For example if you have a small tattoo around the size of a 10p or 50p piece then the price will likely be £60 or €80 per treatment. However to get a correct estimate it will be necessary to visit your intended studio as prices may vary. For this reason we cannot give firm quotes over the phone or by email.

How long does a treatment take?
A treatment takes around 45  minutes to cover a 2x2 inch square area.

What's in the removal cream?
The removal cream has been specifically developed for the purpose of removing tattoos by bonding with the tattoo ink and causing its expulsion from the body. Many of the ingredients can be found in food and cosmetic products.The ingredients in order of quantity are as follows Water, zinc oxidemagnesium oxidecalcium oxiden-propanol, Triethlaomine (PH balancer), benzoic acid (Product preservative). Only a very small amount of cream is required per treatment typically less than 3-4ml most of which does not penetrate the skin, exposure is minimal and chemical concentrations in the cream present little or no risk. The treatment has been approved by various health and safety officers around the UK.

If you tattoo the removal cream in does this mean it gets left in the body rather than the tattoo?
No, the removal cream is designed to bond to and absorb the tattoo ink and extract the ink to the skin surface. It does not replace the tattoo and it does not remain in the skin. It is not a skin colored cover up tattoo.

Is this treatment is suitable for me?
The treatment is suitable for most people, however a through consultation is carried out prior to any treatment. Generally if you have tolerated the original tattoo process then this treatment is very similar. Treatment should not be carried out during pregnancy or breast feeding (due to aftercare considerations such as potential infections and medications). Certain other medical conditions may be a bar to treatment, make it necessary to postpone treatment or seek further clarification from your GP. This can be discussed at the consultation process.

I have a home made tattoo, will this system work on that?
Yes, usually the ink in home made tattoos is less resilient than that used in professionally applied tattoos and can be removed very easily, however unlike professional tattoos ink depth can be very random which may make additional treatments necessary.

I have permanent make up, can this system remove that?
Yes this treatment will completely remove permanent make up, the only place its not suitable for is sensitive areas near the eyes, or where there is a risk of moisture contamination (lips).

Can all pigments be removed?
Yes the process acts upon all pigments equally, unlike laser which is ineffective against certain pigments. The success rate of tattoo color removal is 100% for permanent makeup and over 92% for body tattoos, much higher than the success rate of laser treatment.*

How many treatments will it take to remove my tattoo?
On average most tattoos can be removed in three to four treatments depending on size and location. However as every tattoo is different this can vary from less to more treatments, depending on tattoo condition and circumstances. Large tattoos will need to be broken down into sections for treatment. Continuous bands (arm band) cannot be treated in one session.

How frequently can I have the treatment?
It will generally take around 2 to 3 weeks from the initial treatment for most of the crusting to fall away, normally after around six to twelve weeks the area is healed sufficiently for further treatment. You may also take breaks in the treatment without effecting the outcome.

How soon will I see the results?
This treatment is very effective at removing body tattoos and permanent makeup. The crust that forms over the area should primarily take on the colour's of the underlying tattoo, as the crust falls away it will take the unwanted tattoo ink with it. It is likely that parts of the tattoo will be almost completely erased on just the first treatment. Your tattoo can be completely removed in just a matter of months, compared to years that it takes with laser.

Can I have this treatment if I've had laser treatment?
It is possible to treat tattoos that have previously undergone laser treatment. However laser can cause chemical changes in the pigments and sub-dermal scarring which can effect the e-raze treatment. It is perfectly safe to have laser or other treatments on your tattoo after it has been treated with the e-raze system once suitably healed. If you have recently had laser treatment then it will be necessary to wait eight to twelve weeks for it to heal before treatment.

I just got this tattoo and I instantly hate it, what can I do?
The remover can be applied mid tattoo for immediate reversal, if you are in the middle of getting artwork applied which is not what you specified or imagined then stop and discuss this with the artist. Once the skin has resealed, then unfortunately the skin must be allowed to recover from the process which takes around eight to twelve weeks. Treatment to early may cause unnecessarily high trauma to the skin which can lead to scarring.

I'm getting married, job interview etc. next month can I get rid of this by then?
While the treatment is very fast, unfortunately its not a magic wand. As a sequence of treatments are normally required and the area will take at least six months after finishing treatment to begin to return to normal you can reasonably expect for it to take at least twelve months or more to resolve a tattoo. Otherwise you may reduce the visibility of a tattoo which may make it easier to temporarily cover up with make up. Employers may look favorably upon your circumstances if you are already undergoing removal, although we would recommend you discuss this directly with them before embarking on any treatment.

Are there any lasting side effects?
There have been no lasting side effects documented arising out of the removal treatment. The area may be sore for around a week after treatment and following the final treatment the area may appear slightly redder however this should fade to the normal skin colour after a few months. None of the cases in the Cosmetic Dermatology April, 2001 study of 98 patients demonstrated destruction of the skin's natural pigment unlike laser where hypo pigmentation and hyper pigmentation can be more common.

 

HAIR REMOVAL

 

Is it effective?
Yes, the technology is backed by world wide clinical research studies with proven results.
The most effective results have been achieved on fair skin and darker hair. It is not suitable for black or sun tanned skin. The treatment is also likely to work for blond or grey hair.

How many treatments are needed?
Laser only destroys hairs when they are in the growth phase. At any one moment 20% of hairs are resting or dormant. Repeated sessions will treat these hairs when they re-enter the growth phase. Generally all areas will require at least 8-12 treatments, however different areas on the body/individual need more or less
This depends on many factors including your skin and hair type, ethnic background, hormonal balance and skin sensitivity. It is not possible to categorically state how many treatments an individual will need, however this will be discussed at your consultation.

What parts of the body can be treated?
Laser can treat all external areas of the body and face.

What does a treatment involve?
A cool gel (IPL) is applied to the area to be treated. The laser hand-piece is placed gently against the skin and pulses of intense light are delivered into the hairs. At the time of the treatment some of the hairs are wiped off, however it can take up to two weeks for all the treated hairs to fall out.
 

What can I expect to pay for treatment?
It is recommended that you have a course of treatments and therefore discounted packages will apply.  Maintenance prices are also offered at discounted rates.  Please telephone our Customer Care Advisors for the cost of the area you wish to have treated.


DERMAROLLERS


What are Dermarollers?

Dermarollers are used for a treatment process called micro needling or skin needling. It is a form of collagen induction therapy, quickly gaining popularity in the USA, UK and Europe. Dermarollers are already hugely popular in parts of Asia where skin needling has been practised for some time. Unlike other treatments for acne scars, stretch marks and wrinkles, Dermarollers do not damage the skin or remove the epidermis layer.


How Skin Needling And Dermarollers Work?

Although there are no outward signs of damage, one single micro needle causes a tiny wound in the skin. You cannot see it or feel it as the damage is on a minute scale. Despite the minuscule nature of the wound, the body still acts to heal itself in its own natural way.


The post traumatic response of the skin is to produce collagen and elastin – two of the key building blocks of skin. As there has been no removal or “real” damage to existing collagen, the new formations of it simply add to existing levels.


Imagine now that on a typical roller, there are 192 needles. If when using the Dermaroller the skin is rolled six times (back and forth in three directions), this is over a thousand needle entries, all of which will act to stimulate new collagen fibres. It is not difficult to see that over time, this will act to massively increase the thickness, suppleness and general condition of the skin in these areas.


Skin needling?

The Microneedles of the dermaroller penetrate the epidermis and dermis layer of skin. The process should not be painful and no blood should be drawn.


The derma roller needles will leave micro channels into the skin. This gives a pathway for skin products to penetrate far more easily, boosting their effectiveness massively. These channels should close up within an hour.


So if you are also applying moisturizing cream or any other type of product, the nutrients or active ingredients are allowed to reach the lower levels of the skins layers. This vastly improves the effectiveness of skin care products by several hundred percent. It also means that the the best conditions possible are achievable for collagen production.


LASOLIPO / LIPOLYSIS / FAT REDUCTION


Laser is used to break down fatty tissue/cellulite/ fatty deposits, for this treatment to be efeective it needs to be used in conjunction with exercise and a calorie controlled diet for quick result. Clients need two per week for 4 weeks for results to show.


PEELS

There is no downtime on superficial peels as skin will naturally shred and you can wear make up in 24hours, however medium/deep peels, skin will noticably shred and there will be downtime of 7-10 days.
