Sanitation during pmu procedures

Image

At Ink Cosmetica (Eyebrow Feathering Melbourne) we practice strict infection control to protect everyone against blood-borne pathogens. Air-borne pathogens are usually a problem easing into the cooler months but especially during the current highly infectious climate.

Strict sanitation before and after every client is mandatory using hospital strength cleaning products.
• All our consumables used during each procedure are disposable single use items and are disposed of as hazardous waste.
• All tools and equipment used in eyebrow feathering, lip blush tattoo and eyeliner tattoo are sanitized accordingly before and after use.
• All our equipment is wrapped in barrier tape and that is disposed of immediately after each procedure.
• Everything is then sanitized with hospital grade chemicals.

So you can feel 100% comfortable that we will look after you during your cosmetic tattoo procedure.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, a temporary hold has been placed a ALL lip tattoo appointments until further notice.

The reason for this is that for all appointments during this time all clients will be provided with a mask to wear on arrival. I wear a mask as standard with every procedure all year round, but for now this requirement is in place (along with all my other standard infection control protocols) is to ensure the studio space is kept sanitary for everyone’s safety. Unfortunately this means lips cannot be tattooed while wearing a mask. Tis wont affect brow and eyeliner procedures. <Br />Thank you for understanding and I hope you still feel comfortable to support small local business during this time.

Microblading vs Micropigmentation

So you'd like your brows feathered! You love the idea of not having to pencil them in anymore! You also want a natural looking feather brow, like real hairstrokes - not a solid, filled in brow. Please read on...

You’ve heard about Microblading and it sounds like a great semi-permanent solution. Well, it is if you have the correct skin type! There is another technique which gives the result of Microblading but is suitable for everyone - Introducing Nano Brows...

Here are the main differences:
Microblading is performed with a hand tool made up of tiny blades that the technician uses to implant the hair stroke lines into the skin while implanting pigment at the same time. This is what creates the natural hair stroke look. Unfortunately this technique causes some trauma to the skin the blade slices the skin. If not done correctly, it can lead to scarring.

Nano Brows is essentially 'micropigmentation' and is done with a PMU Machine (a machine similar to a tattoo machine but more gentle with less vibration). The cartridge gently taps the pigment into the skin repeatedly with a very fine nano needle. This causes much less trauma to the skin yet implanting more pigment and offering longer lasting results

If you have oily or mature skin then Microblading is not recommended for you. Microbladed strokes can blur out over time leaving a shading result instead of an actual hair stroke. So unless you are a candidate for Microblading (few people actually are)then you will most likely not achieve great long term results. Nano Brows are suitable for all types of skin.

Microblading can last up to 6 months - hopefully longer if you have the correct skin type. Nano brows last way longer. It is all in how the pigment is implanted into the skin.

So in a nutshell:
• Nano Strokes give you a beautiful natural looking feathered effect just like Microblading.
• Nano Strokes have better retention therefore last much longer
• Nano Strokes creates crisper hairstroke results
• Nano Strokes cause less trauma to the skin
• Nano Strokes are suitable to everyone (unless you have medium to dark pre-exising pmu tattoo).

Constantly researching and taking advanced training to always bring you the latest techniques and the best. I hold my clients skin integrity and long term results always at the forefront of my work. With this in mind, I have made the decision to to give the Microblading technique away and provide all feather brow procedures as Nano Brows.
