Imagine waking up and going to bed with the perfect eyeliner, lip liner, lip colour and eyebrows. No time spent making up, no smudges, no need to continuously buy make up products…
Welcome to the reality of Permanent makeup. This precision art form has been utilised for the past 30 years to enhance the natural contours of faces all over the world. Deepti works with you to achieve the look you desire. The process begins with a detailed consultation at which your ideal colours and definitions are selected. At this stage biometric measurements are taken and guiding “templates” drawn onto the face.
When you are completely happy with the curves and colours selected, the permanent makeup technology is applied to produce a well-balanced, natural enhancement to your appearance.
A plastic surgeon once coined the phrase “eyebrows frame the face”. The phrase stuck and is oft used by Semi-permanent makeup technicians as seldom have so few words painted such a true and vivid picture.
We all take our eyebrows for granted – they’re just there. We pluck, wax, thread, tint them, pencil in gaps between them safe in the knowledge they’ll be there in the morning where we left them. But for many people it’s not always such a stable relationship.
Semi-permanent makeup or micro-pigmentation is a safe, effective and time proven method of restoring a natural appearance after eyebrow hair loss. There are two techniques for restoring eyebrows – “Hair stroke brows” or “Powder Brows”.
Years of plucking, or more correctly overplucking can lead to permanent loss of the eyebrows, often in patches
Eyebrow hair, like scalp hair, thins with age. The genes we’ve been dealt play a significant role in the extent to which the thinning occurs and when it occurs.
Eyebrow hair loss is also a symptom of Hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid).
In fact, loss of the outer section of the eyebrows is used as a diagnostic sign of hypothyroidism.
Please note: although less common, eyebrow hair loss can also occur in an over-active thyroid (hyperthyroidism).Adequate thyroid replacement therapy helps towards restoring the eyebrow hair but the re-growth can take many years and is often incomplete or absent.
The word on it’s own means hair loss. There are different types of alopecia such as alopecia areata (patchy hair loss) or alopecia totalis and different reasons for it, such as immune disorders. In some cases, with medical treatment, the hair loss can be reversed. Often however, it is permanent.
Chemotherapy given, for example, for breast or ovarian cancer can lead to a general loss of hair including the eyebrows. The hair re-growth is delayed and of a thickness dependent on the type, dose and duration of the Chemotherapy. Instances where the hair has not re-grown are well recognised. Restoration of the eyebrows in these patients is a great self-esteem and confidence boost at a time when it is needed most.
Some sufferers of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) display a behavioural pattern called Trichotilomania which, in plain language, means habitual pulling out of the hairs. Any hair that can be pulled is pulled. The eyebrows are a frequent target.
