From an article in the Bucks Advertiser:
I used to say that if I were marooned on a desert island and could only have one personal item with me, it would be my eyebrow pencil. I've always had skinny, sparse eyebrows which need boosting every morning with pencil. Only people with skinny sparse eyebrows will understand this.
Eyebrows can make more than a little difference to your appearance. Pictures of Catherine Zeta Jones and Liz Hurley before their eyebrows got the Hollywood makeover show just what an impact these two little strips of hair can have. I never really thought there was any worthwhile alternative to my trusty eyebrow pencil until I heard about Shahla Saunders who runs the Forever Young Clinic.
She offers a range of marvellous skin and beauty treatments including permanent make-up which can be used for eyebrows, lips, or as an eyeliner. It wasn't without some nervousness that I made my appointment. I kept trying to keep the word tattoo out of my head. But Shahla's warm and friendly nature immediately put me at ease and dispelled any lingering doubts about my imminent treatment.
After chatting with Shahla I was more than happy to undergo a transformation of my sparse eyebrows using permanent make-up. Shahla has worked as an qualified RGN and Aesthetic practitioner with top plastic surgeons in Mount Vernon Hospital. For the past 15 years she has gained invaluable experience working in the NHS and the private sector. Before my appointment I had to attend her salon for a patch test to eliminate any possibility of an allergic reaction to the dyes that Shahla uses. This involved a small pinprick of the pigment behind my ear which was then left and observed after 24 hours. There was no reaction of any kind and in fact Shahla has never had a client who has reacted to the organic dyes she uses.
A week after I turned up for my appointment and my eyebrows were immediately covered in a gel which numbs the area to be treated. After a while Shahla drew in a shape for my eyebrows and asked for my opinion. She is very happy to change the shape if you are not sure and will only continue when you are happy with this outline. Next she mixed the dyes together to create a color which was natural for my hair and skin.
Her permanent make-up machine is a state-of-the-art Cryo system which cools down the skin as she works. The dye was injected just below the surface of the skin using tiny movements of the needle. Then she followed the outline of the shape that she had drawn in.
This process creates a natural look which resembles the hairs of your own eyebrows . As my skin had been numbed before treatment began the sensation was one of the light scratching. Each brow took about half an hour to finish to Shahla's exacting standards.
When she had finished the second brow, she handed me a small mirror to observe the result. I was amazed to see what an immediate difference my new eyebrows made to my face. They certainly made me look younger and my eyes looked somehow bigger. To begin with, my brows were slightly red and this lasted for about 24 hours. They also tingled a bit but this sensation soon settled down. The good thing about my new eyebrows is that they look totally natural and blend well with my other features. As I am blonde, Shahla had chosen a pale caramel mixture of dyes which is perfect for my colouring.
After 6 weeks I will go back to the salon for Shahla to touch up any tiny imperfections. This visit is included in the original cost of treatment.
If, like me, you have little or no eyebrow hair you will be stunned by the benefits of this treatment. The effect is far more natural than any pencil or powder and I cannot wait until I go on holiday without an eyebrow pencil in my bag. I can swim, apply suncream,and shower without thinking about re-applying my eyebrows.
The whole procedure takes nearly 2 hours and the cost is around £300. However, the effects lasts for at least two years before you think about having them again. Shahla also does microdermabrasion, Botox and fillers like Restylane and Juvederm, Environ Ionzyme intensive vitamin facial.Media Article.
Like lots of women in their 50's, I was looking to improve and update my look, without looking unnatural. As one ages the volume of the lip decreases and one ends up with awfully thin lips! That was the state of my lips. So I decided to pluck up courage and do something about it. Shahla was referredD. Simmons.
to me by a friend and I thought long and hard and finally took the plunge. I have been thrilled with the results. I would certainly recommend the Semi-Permanent Make Up for enhancing lips. I have now a very nice subtle colour in my lips with an natural looking border, which make my lips appear fuller. My luscious lips have given me a more youthful look. Encouraged by this amazing results, I decided to have my eyebrows enhanced too. This procedure did not hurt at all and I am now in possession of a fine pair of high arched eyebrows. I would be happy to speak to anyone using Shahla's services.
I have been given a wonderful outline that emphasises my eyes and allows me to look confident and more awake even in the mornings! My friends don't know the secret of my youthful looks. I owe this to my practitioner Shahla.Ms. Christina Gale.
I found Shahla most professional at her job, with her friendly mannerism she put me at ease, answered all my queries and gave me an excellent after care. Her Theatre nursing experience has helped her a lot in dealing with pain management during the procedure. Having my brows done has been the best beauty treatment I have ever decided upon.Miss.
