Create a lasting impression at Beauty Secrets Clinic, Roscommon

Semi-permanent make-up, otherwise known as micropigmentation or cosmetic tattooing is the latest trend in the beauty industry and it has arrived in Roscommon, thanks to Beauty Secrets salon, St. Alban Place, Market Square, Roscommon.             Eyebrow enhancement and lifting, lip volume and balancing and eye enhancement are among the cosmetic applications available. Those with vitiligo can have their skin tones evened out and cleft lip sufferers can be given back full symmetry and colour blending to restore the balance of the mouth.             Denise Harlow, owner of Beauty Secrets, which provides micropigmentation treatment said, ‘The results of this treatment are amazing, so there is a huge demand.’ Denise also provides ultrapeel treatments which includes micro dermabrasion, treatment of fine lines and wrinkles and acne scarring, also scar revision and treatment of stretch marks.             Micropigmentation treatment involves the implantation of hypoallergenic iron oxide micro-colour pigments into the skin using digitally controlled equipment. The procedure takes about an hour and the pigments remain in the skin for up to three years.             It’s a fact, as we get older we need to pay more attention to our appearance, so imagine having natural looking make-up that does not wash off, it simply stays fresh and beautiful for months and months.             Semi-permanent make up is an advanced technique which implants coloured pigments. If you regularly apply eyeliner to accentuate and widen your eyes and lip washes to define the shape of the lips – you will know the real benefit of having your features redefined, which can give the appearance of a face lift for a fraction of the cost and without the need for surgery.             The medical side of this procedure offers fantastic results in terms of procedures such as scar reduction, burn therapy or areola colouration following breast cancer.             An open day at Beauty Secrets, St. Alban Place, Market Square, Roscommon, will take place on Friday, July 27th. Proprietor Denis Harlow will be available on the day to discuss the potential benefits of both ultrapeel treatments and micropigmentation. The entrance to Beauty Secrets is between the Ulster Bank and Easons.

I no longer have to worry.’ – Marie   ‘My eyebrows were really embarrassing and I was really self-conscious’ – Betty   ‘I have 30 minutes extra in bed every day – a result.’ – Diane
