Under Eye Concealer
Can you completely get rid of dark circles without fillers and surgery?
As many of us know from years of testing eye creams and concealers, dark circles are difficult to budge. This is because they're largely caused by dark tissues and blood vessels under the skin, which is why topical treatments can only do so much.
Semi-permanent Under Eye Concealer is very similar to other semi-permanent makeup treatments, in that pigment is deposited into the skin via a special semi-permanent makeup device.
Pigment is not implanted in the skin’s surface, but rather deposited one layer beneath the visible under-eye skin. The pigment used in this treatment is a cosmetic-grade pigment, in a colour customised to the client’s skin tone. The needles used to dispense the pigment provide skin-rejuvenating benefits, similar to microneedling: “It stimulates collagen and improves the quality of the skin, it actually can do your skin a lot of good: placing pigment underneath the eyes can aid in smoothing fine lines and plumping up under-eye hollows.
How many sessions do you need?
For maximum coverage (approximately 70%-80%), two sessions are recommended. The sessions are spread apart - dispensing too much pigment at once can result in uneven texture, as the pigment needs time to gradually settle and adjust to the under-eye. The results should last two to three years.
As with all of Lulalash Brows & Beauty Semi-permanent Makeup procedures, the first step involves taking the time to consult with each client to determine the appropriate amount of coverage of the semi-permanent under eye concealer.
Once these factors have been determined our technician will begin the procedure.
Topical anesthetic will be applied first to keep you comfortable and pain free throughout the procedure. The semi-permanent under-eye concealer process starts once the treated area is numb. The process itself can take 30-45 minutes. You feel pressure on the under-eye area and buzzing from the machine, but some clients have been known to fall asleep! Once the anesthetic wears off you will not be in pain.
Prior to your procedure, clients are advised of the following:
Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours.
To be certain color is not compromised, please avoid the following for one week after treatment: exposure to water, saunas, excessive sweating.
Avoid the following for 14 days: swimming, tanning or into saunas
Redness may occur immediately after the treatment, so apply a protective ointment to soothe the skin. As the under-eye area is delicate, makeup can only be applied three days post-procedure. Taking extra precautions to protect the sensitised skin from sun exposure is vital, so apply a sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 and always wear sunglasses.
