Permanent Makeup

Bonnie brings Permanent Make-up to Vero Beach

Is the procedure painful?
Topical and local anesthetics are used to minimize discomfort.

Is permanent make-up a tattoo?
Permanent make-up is very similar to a tattoo, in the fact that color is implanted in the skin with an automatic machine; however, all equipment and pigments used are specifically made exclusively for cosmetic procedures. Unlike a tattoo machine, permanent make-up equipment is designed to work on delicate skin and pigments are intended to look more natural than the standard primary colors found in a tattoo establishment.

What does permanent make-up look like?
Permanent make-up looks very similar to regular make-up, but a little more natural since a layer of skin softens the implanted color. Lip color would simulate a lip stain and eye/brow make-up would look very similar to make-up pencils. If conventional make-up looks natural, then permanent make-up can look natural too. How natural your permanent make-up looks depends on your own style, hair (amount and color) and any modifications desired to the shape or design of your eyes, lips or brows.

What is the recovery?
There will be slight swelling, redness and occasionally bruising, depending on the individual. Swelling typically only last 1-2 days for the eyebrows, 2-3 days for the eyes and 3-4 days for the lips. The color, initially more intense and bold during the healing process, fades to the desired color in less than a week. The color lasts 3 – 5 years, depending on the desired color and amount applied.

  • Would simply enjoy the freedom from daily make-up application

BOTOX®
BOTOX® is a purified protein derived from the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum. Using a tiny micro-needle, a very small amount of BOTOX® is injected, very precisely, into several locations on the face typically the vertical lines between your eyebrows, forehead lines, and lines at the corners of your eyes (crow's feet). BOTOX® injections have been used safely and effectively for over ten years to treat many ophthalmologic and neurological disorders. In 2004, over 2 million people were injected with BOTOX®. We purchase our BOTOX® directly from Allergan, the only FDA approved source in the U.S.

Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are used for the correction of facial wrinkles, soft tissue contouring and volume enhancement. We use next-generation fillers which are safe, natural looking and long-lasting.

Laser Hair Removal

Now men and women are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past, thanks to CoolGlide® laser systems. No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! CoolGlide laser systems deliver 21st century technology for treatment of this distressing problem. Cleared for permanent hair reduction, CoolGlide lasers can treat men and women of all skin tones safely and effectively. Even patients with a suntan.

The CoolGlide Difference
CoolGlide systems are the best laser hair removal systems on the market for all skin tones, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Their unique design, longer wave length, and innovative cooling design allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.

What areas can be treated with CoolGlide systems?
The CoolGlide Laser System can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.

What do CoolGlide laser treatments feel like?

As the name implies, the CoolGlide handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, however some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.

How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 3-6 treatments, but the number of CoolGlide treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on various factors such as your hair’s thickness, the area treated, and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, but actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. CoolGlide systems work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following your CoolGlide treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be re growth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment, and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?
Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away. However, since some redness may occur, you may want to plan your work or social engagements accordingly. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure. In addition, your physician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regimen especially formulated for your skin type.

What are the possible side effects?
Slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn may occur in some patients. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

How do CoolGlide lasers compare with other hair removal methods?
Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. CoolGlide lasers offer permanent hair reduction for lasting results.

How do CoolGlide lasers compare with Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, CoolGlide lasers effectively treat an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.

Why choose CoolGlide lasers over other laser hair removal systems?
Using the latest technology in laser hair removal, CoolGlide Laser Systems can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies. The CoolGlide system’s longer wavelength allows it to be used safely and effectively on patients with light or dark skin as well as tanned skin. Unlike other systems, CoolGlide lasers can treat the fine hair on a woman’s upper lip just as easily and effectively as the coarse hair on a man’s back. The cooled handpiece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.
