What is semi-permanent make up?
Semi-permanent make up is a safe and effective beauty procedure that involves placing specially formulated pigments in the upper layers of the dermis. One of the most popular types among York clients and throughout the UK is microblading, a cosmetic treatment used to create beautiful semi-permanent eyebrows.
Is semi-permanent make up safe?
Yes, at Pout Cosmetics we follow extremely strict health and safety procedures. All clients are asked to have an allergy test prior to their treatment to determine if you have any sensitivity to the pigment. We also make sure the surrounding areas and equipment used for your treatment meet high sterilisation standards and pre-packed, sterile needle cartridges are used for each individual client.
What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as Botox or Botulinum toxin, is a treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. Botox injections work by blocking the nerve signals to the specific muscle which causes it to relax, reducing the effects of lines on the skin. Many clients in York request Botox to reduce the signs of ageing, but it can also be used to treat a number of medical conditions.
How long does microblading take to heal?
Just had a semi-permanent make up treatment? After treatments such as microblading your new semi-permanent eyebrows will need time to heal. It takes around seven to fourteen days for eyebrows to heal and approximately one month for the colour to fully settle. As part of the healing process the colour can fade by up to 40% and you will experience some slight scabbing. Avoid picking at the scabs as this can damage the skin and result in patchy eyebrows.
What do lip fillers do?
Lip fillers, along with semi permanent eyebrows and botox injections, are one of our most popular treatments in our York-based beauty clinic. They are a dermal filler treatment used to add volume and definition to the lips. They are perfect for anyone wanting more luscious lips, to make thin lips bigger, treat scars or to change their lip shape. At Pout Cosmetics, we provide Juverderm Lip Filler treatments and the Gold Lip Filler treatment.
What does the NYTOX Vampire Facial involve?
NYTOX Vampire Facials is a skin rejuvenating treatment used to address a variety of skin issues and is known giving dramatic results. Known also as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, it works by using the body’s own natural healing powers to repair the skin by causing mild trauma, with a 192 needle Derma roller that is gently rolled over the skin. A gel-like plasma substance created from a small amount of blood from the client is then applied onto the skin.
