On the day of your first procedure you can expect the following;
# You will have as much time as you wish for your appointment to discuss everything that you would like to discuss without feeling rushed or looking at the clock, because Tracy only books 1 client in at anyone time so as not to add any pressure in getting the procedure done quickly and having another client waiting before your procedure is finished, because the time you book is all allocated for you and including the cleaning and setup afterwards. Giving you the reasurance that the time is all yours.
# We will discuss all shapes, styles & colours of any procedure you are about to go ahead with and Tracy will address any concerns or querys you may have, Tracy will not start and implant any colours in to your skin until you are 100% happy with what you are going ahead with-shape, style & colour, this will be your final say, we want you to be extremely happy with your choice.
# When you are completely happy and give the go a head we will then start the process.
# We take a before photo.
# Tracy will set up and follow all health & safety rules/protocol and will prepare herself for the procedure i.e handwash, glove, face mask, aprons, eye protection.
# And the client will be prepared i.e gowns, and bibs, hair bonnet protection.
# First we cleanse the skin, and take off any dead skin cells, we then place the aneasthetic on to your skin so as to numb your skin, so as the procedure can be as pain free as possible, however this is different for everybody because everyone's pain freshold is unique to themselves, some people feel only minor sensation and some people feel nothing. We will have already drawn on the template for the procedure in the case of eyebrows. We set up our micropigmention machine with patended oneclick needle cartridges, which are completely sterile and only taken out of the packet in front of you just before the procedure begins, so you are safe in the knowledge that the needle is just for you, and will be disposed of immediatley the procedure is finished. All touchable surfaces are protected with barrier film to protect from cross contamination, and all consumables for the procedure are one time use and are fully disposable and disposed of immedately after the procedure
#We mix the coloured pigments to your requirements.
# We then start to implant the pigment into the skin.
# After the first pass we then add a second step aneasthetic onto your skin which can go into broken skin, this makes the procedure extremely comfortable for the client, some have even been know to fall a sleep!. Each persons pain tolerences are unique and most people do feel something but do say it is very comfortable it feels just like a scratching sensation or like the plucking of your brows.
# Just before the procedure is finished we show the client the procedure in the mirror and discuss if any adjustments are required, because we always do it less first time so the client can get used to the new look and we can always add more or make it a little darker next time, as it is always better to add then to take away!.
# When we have finished the procedure we take an after procedure photo to record how the procedure went.
# We then put on an aftercare product, and apply icepacks for a short while if necessary and add soothing eyedrops in the case of an eyeliner procedure.
# We then explain all aftercare to the client and issue you with a full aftercare instruction sheet & aftercare package of products to use and a helpline number if you are in doubt about any thing to do with your aftercare once you are home. We are there to help ALWAYS.
# We record all procedure information on record sheets i.e pigments used and batch numbers, needle size, client pain tolerences, aneasthetic usage, skin reactions, and client comments, price client paid, etc so we have a full record of your visit ready for your next visit and all held in the strictest confidence.
The client will then come back again for follow up procedures 4/6 weeks following the first procedure this is so that the skin can heal and the colour can settle into the skin correctly. If it is done any sooner the skin will not have healed and the skin can become damaged and can possibly scar, at Totally Faces we will never do the procedure again until we are sure the skin is healthy and safe to proceed on.
# The client can expect to come in at least 2 to 3 times 4/6 weeks apart for all procedures. This is to allow for a safe & gradual process as we see permanent make-up as a process and not a one off procedure.
# When all procedures are complete you can expect your makeup to be quite longterm but depending on your style and facial cream usages there may be some fading that will occur prematurely however this is not a problem because we do suggest a touch up procedure in the future at your convenience this keeps your new permanent makeup looking pristine and completely renews it again giving you the added self confidence again.
|WHAT IS MICROPIGMENTATION AND HOW IS IT DONE?
Permanent cosmetic make-up is the art and science of implanting colour in to the skin, it is putting the right colour in the right place so you can look better naturally. Specialised instruments allow your practitioner to place colour into the layer of skin known as the dermis . Because the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis, is always shedding and renewing itself, you are looking at the colour through a thin veil of skin. Permanent cosmetic make-up helps replenish what time has taken away and gives back precious time you normally spend 'putting on your face' Permanent make-up is not intended to replace cosmetics completely. Because the colour is placed 'in' your skin and not 'on' your skin a more natural softer look results. When you're ready to kick up your heels and go out for a night-on-the-town, you can apply as much additional make-up as you like. The procedures are completely safe and effective and used for a variety of semi-permanent cosmetic enhancements, Women and Men of all ages are experiencing the difference micropigmentation can make.

To put the icing on the cake! esppecially if you do not wish to have more surgery this is a must and it gives you a very natural looking finish to your reconstruction without the down time.
|HOW IS IT DONE?
The first application of permanent make-up is some what like a 'primer' and will usually need 1 or 2 touchups within 12 weeks to make the colour truly permanent. Using the analogy of painting a house or car, you wouldn't think to purchase a car that had only one coat of paint, would you? your house and car needs numerous coats of paint to prolong their colour. Permanent make-up needs multiple layers of pigment to achieve the desired outcome and retain longevity. The permanent make-up is applied using a rotary pen which can hold multiple needles to implant coloured pigments. The tattoo needles and this technique is medically proven to be completely safe. The tattooing device basically works like a small sewing machine, the needle asssembly rapidly moves up and down, pushing the needles into the dermis layer of the skin, implanting the chosen pigment. The practitioner holds the machine with a steady hand while gliding it along the skin. The needle penetrates the skin only a couple of millimeters at the most as the tube needle caps & digital technology limit the needles from penetrating any deeper.

|IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
Every client is different, we all have different pain tolerances to pain. With advanced new equipment and techniques discomfort is minimal. Very good topical cream/gel anesthetics are now available and made especially for the permanent cosmetic/ medical tattooing world. Here at TOTALLY FACES we use only the best anesthetics available today so your procedure can be as comfortable as possible.These creams and gels are applied to the desired area.
Before and during the procedure the creams are applied to assure you of the most comfortable experience possible. Some people describe the sensation as a 'tingling' feeling. Most people experience some sensation, especially for lip & eyeliner colour procedures, for eyebrows this is the procedure that usually as not much pain at all and is the most comfortable procedure. It is common to hear that there was not as much pain as was expected. As the anesthetic wears off after the procedure, cool packs are very soothing to the area.
|WHAT TO EXPECT OVERALL;
Each procedure behaves differently after it's application. Depending on the procedure you have done, you will see various changes occur in the first few days i.e swelling, colour to dark, shape a little distorted. immediately after the procedure is done
When the area as healed, there is a much greater chance that the permanent make-up procedure will be to light or subtle, Most practitioners offer at least 2 free touchups. Most clients are satisfied with 2 total applications. The touchups are necessary to make your make-up just right. This aplication can be balanced, supplemented, darkened, or changed or altered if necessary. It is much better to add pigment than to take it away!. Over the next 5 to 28 days the artificial look will naturalize and soften. It is impossible to accurately evaluate what the final result will be until this 'naturalization' process occurs. The shape may appear to be somewhat distorted; 'DON'T WORRY'. Only after the pigment has settled into place and irritation from the process has disappeared can the make-up be accurately evaluated. 'THIS PROCESS ALLOWS FOR A SAFE, COMFORTABLE AND GRADUAL PROCESS'. And once procedures are fully finished you can expect them to last as they are permanent but may need a touch up from 1 to 7 years due to fading, to keep your make-up looking pristine.
