Where Does The Time Go?
Is it me or are the days getting shorter and shorter as we grow up? After thinking about this phenomenon I came up with 2 possible theories:
1. With the cellular degradation that corresponds to us aging with the passing of time, maybe we are forgetting about certain events that have taken place throughout the day, therefore making it appear shorter. This would coincide with a high percentage of memory issues found in the older generation of people.
2. Our lives are simply getting busier.
Obviously the answer is number two. As children the world seemed to be our oyster, we had unlimited time to play out with friends, build spaceships from cereal boxes or sit and watch hours of continuous cartoons on TV. Life as a child was a carefree experience, your only worry being you had to behave all year round to make it onto that all important good list that is owned by a certain man in red that lives at the North Pole. You know the one…he makes presents for little boys and girls and rides a flying sleigh lead by a famous reindeer with a red nose.
However as the wick of our lives burns down so does the time in which we find we have free. As you make your own passage through the journey of life you will most likely find a job, get married, have children and buy a dog. Now why is this important? Because with each and every step you take along that journey you acquire more and more responsibilities which you have guessed it = less spare time.
Semi Permanent Makeup
I don’t know about you but I hardly have time to go to the toilet and wash my hair in the morning, never mind applying any cosmetics. In a recent survey it was found that around 95% of women wouldn’t leave the house in the morning without first putting on their war paint. This is where semi permanent makeup (SPMU ) comes into its own.
What is Semi Permanent Makeup?
Semi Permanent Makeup is a well kept Hollywood secret. In the procedure a coloured pigment is placed into the dermal layer of the skin, which can last for several years.
Is It Expensive?
Not at all. When you look at the money invested over the several years that Semi Permanent Makeup can last you can actually make quite a saving. Also, SPMU doesn’t run or wash off so not only is a money saver but a timer saver too.
How Long Does The Procedure Take?
It will usually last approximately an hour for your initial appointment. If you want to have more than one area done you will have to allow for further time. A second visit is required at around the 6 to 8 week mark after your first visit to perfect the makeup and boost the colour. This second visit works on the basis of “less is best”. Its better to do under-do an application on the first procedure than over do it.
How long Does It Last?
The Semi Permanent Makeup can last for several years. It is suggested however that you return for a ‘top up’ appointment to boost the colour around every 12 to 18 months.
Does it Hurt?
While most people say they feel no pain at all, others have reported only a mild discomfort. If this is a concern topical numbing can be used to keep any discomfort felt minimal.
Is An Allergy Test Required?
An allergy test is offered and recommended but it is not a mandatory requirement. If you decide to have a test it can be carried out 24 hours before your treatment – 99.9% of people who have this test do not have a reaction of any kind.
Will It Look Natural?
After you have had the treatment the area that has been treated will be darker and intense. However after around 3-5 days after the area will naturally exfoliate and the true colour will emerge through. Some people experience some swelling, don’t worry this is completely normal and usually subsides within 24 hours.
