Cosmetic & Medical Tattooing

At Karma House Clinic in Aylesbury, we carry out a range of cosmetic and medical tattooing procedures, including:

Semi Permanent Eyebrows

Semi permanent eyebrows are one of the most popular procedures carried out at Karma House Clinic. Anyone who has ever suffered from sparse or uneven eyebrows will know the difference that real definition can make. You may have tried to create the look in the past using an eyebrow pencil but it is not that easy to do and the results can still be uneven. Our highly experienced micropigmentation specialist at Karma House can carry out cosmetic tattooing to suit your requirements, giving you a lasting shape and colour that will help frame the face.

You will be able to find out more about the cosmetic tattooing process at the initial consultation where our specialist will explain everything that you need to know and answer any questions that you may have regarding cosmetic tattooing. When having semi permanent eyebrows you get to choose from a softer look or a tattooed simulation of hair. This is a popular option for those who have lost their eyebrows as a result of a medical condition.

Eyebrow Tattoos

What are the benefits?

There are many advantages to having semi permanent eyebrows. You can rest easy in the knowledge that your eyebrows are in good hands and you can save so much time when compared to applying make-up each day. The colour will never smudge or run and you get to choose the colour you like and the exact shape of the cosmetic tattoo.

What is involved?

Anyone considering having semi permanent eyebrows will want more information on the actual procedure and our experts at Karma House in Aylesbury are on hand to tell you anything you need to know. The process is very much like a standard tattoo although it uses pigment rather than standard ink – making them semi permanent only. The pigments are placed within the skin’s dermal layer. For most people the whole procedure will take 1 hour, and it is done in two stages, the first treatment and then a second about 4-6 weeks later. The process is relatively pain free, although there may be some discomfort, but recovery time is fast and you will find that you can simply go about daily life again afterwards.

The treated area may swell slightly for a couple of days following the semi permanent eyebrow treatment and you may be concerned that the colour is too strong at first. However, these will subside fairly quickly afterwards and you should see the true colour within four – six weeks, although the time for this will vary according to the individual being treated as age, lifestyle and skin type are all factors that can affect the process.

Having this type of cosmetic tattooing is also referred to as micropigmentation and our experts will explain how this is a very safe treatment that can give you the lasting results that you are looking for. Semi permanent eyebrows can give you a little more confidence about your overall look and you can also consider a variety of other semi permanent make-up options such as eye liner and lip liner, and these can be carried out at the same time.

Here at Karma House Clinic in Aylesbury we understand how important your confidence is and our treatments are aimed at helping you to boost your self esteem. When you have your initial consultation, why not talk to our experts about the various options available to you? You can address other issues that may be affecting you. With a range of treatments on offer our team can help to reduce the look of those fine lines at the same time as giving your face the definition it needs with semi permanent eyebrows.

Semi Permanent Eyeliner

Every woman has at some point in time wondered about taking shortcuts with their make-up and solutions such as semi permanent eyeliner have come along in response to this. Putting on make-up each morning can be time consuming and messy – it is so easy to smudge the make-up as you apply it, especially if you are in a hurry. Why not consider a more long-term approach to your make-up? Semi permanent eyeliner is something that is well worth considering, particularly for those who often wear the same shade. When you get up in the morning the eyeliner is already in place and that’s one less task to carry out while you are still half asleep!

Semi permanent eyeliner is not the only option with Cosmetic Tattooing. Anyone who regularly has to fill in their eyebrows with a pencil or who uses lip liner and lip colour can benefit from this type of cosmetic tattooing. Imagine make-up that stays in place no matter what you are doing! You can go swimming, take part in other sports or even just stand out in the rain without worrying about your make-up running.

What are the benefits?

The effects of semi permanent eyeliner and other cosmetic tattooing can be very dramatic. The definition given to the face can be amazing and our micropigmentation specialist at Karma House in Aylesbury will be on hand to offer advice on shaping and other factors to achieve the result that you desire.

Being able to look your best at all times is one of the main benefits of cosmetic tattooing. When you first wake up in the morning the colour and definition that you are looking for is already in place saving you a great deal of time, not to mention the money saved by not having to purchase make-up regularly. There is a choice of colours for this type of treatment and our micropigmentation specialist will work with you to find shades that will suit you no matter what you are wearing or doing.

What should I expect?

The procedure for semi permanent eyeliner is the same as for a tattoo although the standard inks are replaced with pigments. The pigments are coloured and are applied within the skin’s dermal layer. Our experts will be on hand to guide you through the process from the initial consultation to the aftercare so if there are any questions about the treatment they will be happy to answer. You do not need to put aside a lot of time for a treatment either, as most treatments can be completed in 1 hour.

The process is fairly painless; while it is not uncommon to experience some discomfort, this soon passes. You can also expect your recovery time to be fairly short too. The treated area could see some swelling but this will soon subside. Colours used for semi permanent eyeliner may appear to be darker at first but will fade as the colour settles and stabilises within the skin. This is a process which has a variable time frame as it is affected by different factors including age, skin type and the shade chosen.

Opting for a treatment such as semi permanent eyeliner is a great way to give your confidence a boost but this is not the only option available to you. If you are struggling with issues such as the first signs of ageing then there are many different treatments that we can offer you here at Karma House in Aylesbury. If you are interested in having other treatments then talk to our friendly and helpful team as it may be that they can be carried out at the same time as you have semi permanent eyeliner applied.

Semi Permanent Lip Liner

We have a highly experienced professionally trained micropigmentation specialist with over 20 years’ experience who can carry out this procedure. If you often wear the same shade of lip colour then semi permanent lip liner is something that you should consider. However, why stop there? You can also have full lip colour applied in the same way.
Permanent Lip Liner

What are the advantages?

Anyone who regularly wears lip liner and lipstick will understand the frustration of having to reapply it time after time. During the day it tends to disappear when you eat and drink, so to maintain the same look you need to carry your makeup around with you. Semi permanent lip liner and colour provides an alternative. It will simply stay in place and you can enjoy the advantages of lip colour without it taking up more time than necessary.

It is also a great feature for those who do not like to be seen without their make-up – the colour remains fast, even when you first wake up. In addition, it will not smudge like traditional make-up so no trying to correct mistakes!

What is involved?

When you arrive for your initial consultation our micropigmentation specialist will explain how the process works. For semi permanent lip liner the process is the same as for a tattoo. Coloured pigments are placed within the skin’s dermal layer. The time it takes to apply varies from person to person but most semi permanent lip liner procedures can be completed within 1 hour.

Immediately following the treatment you may notice that there is a slight swelling and it could take a few days for this to subside. At first you will notice that the colour is perhaps a little darker than you first wanted but your micropigmentation specialist will explain that this is normal and it will fade in time. The pigment matures, and around six weeks after the treatment, it will be the required colour. However, this is an estimate and it does depend upon the individual being treated as age, skin type and lifestyle can all play a part in this process.

The process of semi permanent lip liner is safe and you may hear our team refer to it as micropigmentation. The lasting results of this type of treatment are helping to make it popular and it can save a great deal of time. Semi permanent make-up also comes in the form of eye liner and eyebrows. Medical tattooing can also be used to cover up scars.

Shape and definition can be given to the features of the face and this can help to ensure that you always look your best. Here at Karma House in Aylesbury we understand that the loss of confidence can be soul-destroying and our range of treatments are designed to help you to achieve the look that you want and give you back your self esteem. Our professional team are all qualified and experienced and are on hand from your initial consultation right through the process to answer any questions that you may have.

If looking your best is important to you then why not talk to our team about some of the other treatments that we have on offer?

Some of our treatments could be carried out at the same time as the semi-permanent lip liner and can help you to get the younger and fresher look that you want.

Areola Restoration (Areola Tattooing)

Those who have had surgery for breast cancer may be considering treatment for areola restoration, commonly known as areola tattooing or a nipple tattoo. At Karma House in Aylesbury we have a highly qualified and experienced micropigmentation specialist who carries out the areola tattooing and can help with the issues surrounding this type of treatment. The nipple tattoo procedure is very safe and can help to restore your body confidence following a serious illness. The process is called Areola Restoration, also referred to as micropigmentation or areola tattooing.
Areola Tattoo

What is involved?

Areola tattooing can take place once you have undergone reconstructive surgery. The areola is created/coloured using a medical tattooing procedure and this can also help to cover any scar tissue, improving the overall appearance of the breast.

Our experienced micropigmentation specialist can also use this technique to disguise the appearance of scar tissue and burns, giving the skin the same colouring as the surrounding skin, thus making the scar far less obvious. Cosmetic tattooing can also be used for semi permanent eyebrows and eyeliner.

Areola tattooing can be considered along the lines of a standard tattoo, although pigments are used instead of inks. These pigments are placed within the dermal layer of the skin and the process can take between one and two hours. We understand that you may have concerns about the nipple tattoo procedure being painful, but there is almost no pain involved as a numbing cream is used on the area to be treated before the procedure begins. Some people may experience a little discomfort but this soon subsides.

Aftercare for Areola Tattoo

Recovery time following areola tattooing is very quick. You may find that the treated area is slightly swollen and, although this may last for a few days, the area soon returns to normal. Our experienced micropigmentation specialist will explain how the the nipple tattoo and the colouring works. To complete the treatment you have to have two treatments roughly 4-6 weeks apart. When the treatment is first carried out the colour can be much deeper than expected, but this will fade over time and will practically disappear after your first treatment. This is because the pigment is layering down below the skin. Then, when you come back for your second treatment, a visible layer of pigment will be left on top of the previous layer, completing the process.

Every patient is different and the colour will settle into the skin slightly different with each individual. At your initial consultation, Caron will discuss this with you as she will look at factors such as your age, your lifestyle and your skin type, and how these will affect the process of areola tattooing.

Areola restoration, also known as areola tattooing – what should I expect?

Here at Karma House in Aylesbury we have a highly experienced micropigmentation specialist, Caron Vetter, who has been carrying out the procedure for over 20 years and was one of the first in this country to train in areola restoration.

You will have an initial consultation with Caron which will take ½ hour where she will discuss the whole process of areola tattooing with you, as well as showing you areola tattooing before and after photos. We will need information on your general health and the kind of result that you are hoping to achieve. By going through all this in advance we can be sure that the treatment you are having is suitable for your needs. This is also the opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have. If you have any concerns at all regarding the nipple tattoo then we are happy to give you the information you need.

Getting your confidence back can be a major issue following surgery for breast cancer. At Karma House in Aylesbury Buckinghamshire, we want to help you to achieve the look that you want and many of our treatments are designed to deal with those niggling image issues and give you a younger and fresher look. Why not talk to our team about having other procedures carried out at the same time? We have many revitalising treatments available and our team will be able to help you to choose the right one for you at the same time as you undergo areola tattooing.

Scar Camouflage

Scarring of the skin is one of the most confidence-sapping issues that people may face but here at Karma House in Aylesbury we offer scar camouflage treatments that can help to transform your life.

Scar camouflage comes in the form of medical tattooing – also known as micropigmentation. This is a treatment which uses skin needling to soften the appearance and texture of scars making it far less visible to the naked eye.

Scar of caesarean section

What is involved?

You may be concerned that scar camouflage is a painful process but the vast majority of people will only feel a slight discomfort during the treatment. The hand held device delivers a specifically chosen size of needle cluster over the scar, to injure and promote the natural healing process. Recovery time from medical tattooing is also quite fast. The treatment area will initially be very red and can be sore for a day or two following the procedure but this does subside quickly. If you have any concerns about this our team are on hand to give you advice and answer any questions that you have regarding your scar camouflage treatment.

What should I expect?

Our micropigmentation specialist at Karma House in Aylesbury is highly qualified with over 20 years experience in medical tattooing. We work very hard to put you at ease from the moment you arrive for your initial consultation. The consultation is a very important part of our process as this is the point where we gather all the essential information about you, your health and the results you want to achieve. This is how we plan your treatment and make sure that the approach is the right one for you. Here you can ask us any questions that you have and we will give you all the information that you need.

*Results will vary from person to person and a thorough in-depth consultation will first take place.

Scar Camouflage

Cleft Lip Repair

We understand that living with scars can be difficult and cleft lip scars are often noticed quickly by others, however, here at Karma House in Aylesbury there are options to help disguise the scars so that you can feel confident to face in facing the world! Medical tattooing may be used to balance out the shape of the lips and help give a fuller and more defined appearance. Medical tattooing is the process that we use to place a natural pigment below the skin to create a tattoo and reduce the appearance of the cleft lip scar, although it can be used to treat many other types of scars too.

How does it work?

You may hear our practitioners refer to this process as medical tattooing and we can use it for cleft lip repair. The lip line is tattooed to camouflage the cleft lip’s appearance. It is a form of semi-permanent make-up and works the same way as a standard tattoo, although pigments are used in the place of inks. As well as this dry-needling can be used along the scar line running from the lip to the nose, to soften and reduce its appearance.

The pigments are inserted into the dermal layer of the skin and your cleft lip repair treatment will take around an hour or more, but this depends greatly on the area of skin that is being treated and the individual. Cleft lip repair is relatively painless, although our experienced micropigmentation specialist will advise you that there may be some discomfort. Our initial consultation process has been designed to put you at ease so that at every point during your cleft lip repair treatment you will feel as though you are in safe hands.

The treated skin may swell slightly after treatment but this is perfectly normal. It should return to its normal state within a few days, but if you have any concerns then our team is on hand to answer any questions that you may have.

What are the advantages of this treatment?

Cleft lip scarring is something that is fairly obvious every time you look in the mirror. By opting for this treatment you may reduce the appearance of the scar and when you look in the mirror, it should be less noticeable to the eye. Confidence can be lost very quickly when there are obvious scars and the temptation to hide away can be great. Cleft Lip Repair using medical tattooing is an option that can help you to want to get back out there again and start living a fuller life!

Karma House in Aylesbury is staffed by qualified and experienced professionals and at every stage we are on hand to answer any questions that you have about the cleft lip repair treatment and the aftercare. More information can be obtained at the consultation stage, where our experienced micropigmentation specialist will talk to you about your medical history and what you want to achieve before advising you if the process can be taken any further – we will never recommend a treatment if it is unsuitable for your needs.

The range of treatments available at our Clinic are all designed to deal with those niggling cosmetic issues to give your confidence a boost and allow you to achieve the look that you want. Other treatments such as laser hair removal can also help and could be carried out at the same time. Why not speak to a member of our team about combining other treatments with your cleft lip repair medical tattooing treatment?

*Results will vary from person to person and a thorough in-depth consultation will first take place.
