Permanent makeup, cosmetic tattooing, technically known as micropigmentation, is a process whereby minute particles of inert (remain stagnant) iron oxide colour pigments in a carrier solution are implanted into the dermal layers of the skin. This is achieved by using a specially designed hand–piece which utilises a single-use only, disposable needle cartridge. Depending on which features of the face are to be enhanced, the implantation depth will vary approximately between 1mm and 2 mm. The procedure is very safe and medically approved and is fast becoming one of the most requested treatments in the beauty industry.
The pigments (or ink) used at Lucie’s Medispa have been in use for over 30 years and to date there have been no recorded cases of allergic reactions. The procedure takes about one to two hour and is made comfortable with the use of a topical anaesthetic cream or pain killer. The effects of permanent makeup can remain in the skin for 10 years and sometimes longer. The result achieved is stunning, makeup that looks great, all day – every day! Permanent makeup which has been carefully applied can give the impression of rejuvenation and even as far to say as a mini face lift. Always have these procedures carried out by a reputable technician and remember, these treatments are long-lasting so should be regarded as permanent.
Lucie’s expertise and critical eye for detail can help you look 10 years younger without going under the knife! Lips which have depleted over the years through the breakdown of collagen can be given a lush sexy pout with the clever use of pigments and shading techniques to restore volume and balance without the use of dermal filler injections. Eyes that have become tired-looking can be made to appear alive and inviting by carefully placing pigment in the lash-line, both top and bottom. Even men can benefit from the procedure by way of the dot placement technique.
Prior to any treatment a consultation will be conducted and during this time a client-consent form will have to be filled in and signed by the client who is to receive the treatment. Lucie will take you through a thorough and informative consultation answering any questions or concerns which you may have regarding permanent cosmetics treatment(s). During your consultation you can view before and after’ pictures while discussing your preferred enhancements. You can even try a ‘mock’ appearance to see how your procedure will look.

She will advise you which ‘look’ suits you best and will even create a flattering anti-ageing appearance on depleted lips and cantered eyebrows.
