How permanent cosmetics can be life changing, by Helen Taylor.

Hello, it’s Helen and today I wanted to talk about the 3 ways that I believe that enhancing your eyebrows can change your life.

There are different methods to achieve the optimum brow shape. Permanent cosmetics can be used on the eye area (brows and liner) and also on the lip area. Whether you know it as microblading, semi permanent makeup or even permanent makeup, one thing is for sure – the effects that permanent cosmetics and great looking eyebrows has on the women who come to see me– are  life changing.  Here’s why:

You look like your best self – daily.

You wake up to make up and look like your best self, daily. Let’s be honest, most of us prefer the way that we look when we are wearing makeup.

Now, you can wake up, looking and feeling like the best version of you, and what’s more, you look the same, daily.

If you have ever spent hours trying to recreate yesterday’s perfect eyebrow look you will understand what I am saying here. Permanent cosmetics can take the daily worry out of great looking eyebrows.

You save time and that’s priceless.

Who doesn’t want to save time in the morning, when getting ready? How much time a woman spends on applying her brows for example, in the morning, can naturally vary greatly – but I have worked with women who are exasperated and riddled with anxiety, because they get up at something like 4 in the morning, to meticulously apply their eyebrows. Just gaining that extra time in bed, and finding themselves free of the mental load, can honestly be totally life changing!

You can look (and feel) like yourself again if ill health has got the better of you.

Ill health, such as vitamin deficiencies, thyroid conditions, and treatments such as chemotherapy, can mean that hair loss can occur for some women, and this can obviously affect their confidence. If this has been the case for you, then having for example, your eyebrows enhanced can mean that you feel like you are taking back the control again, and this is really powerful.

It may seem like a cosmetic enhancement procedure, but for some, taking this step when they are undergoing chemotherapy, can mean that they develop a fighting spirit, that puts them back in the driver’s seat and helps towards fighting cancer.

Whatever it is that has you considering a treatment with myself or the team, we would be more than happy to welcome you into the clinic. To find out more about the treatments that we offer, head here.

Permanent Makeup

Permanent Makeup can be life changing – and here’s why.

Permanent Makeup can be life changing – and here’s why. 2000 1333 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Think it’s all about looking pretty? Think again. Here is why permanent makeup can be a godsend.

Hello, it’s me, Helen, and after a whirlwind week since the launch of my Taylormade skincare products and my book ‘Your Best Kept Secret’, I’m getting back into the swing of things, here over at the Helen Taylor Clinic

The other day I was talking to a client, about the life changing effects of permanent eyebrows, and as we have had several requests about the procedure this week, I thought that I would write this blog post.

If you have seen any of my other posts, about the positive benefits of getting permanent makeup (lips, eyebrows, eyeliner), then you will know already that I highly rate this procedure. But it’s easy to get caught up in the ‘save time, and wake up to makeup’ side of it, so today I wanted to talk about a different side to things.

Permanent makeup can help someone who has been diagnosed with cancer to feel like they’re taking the power back.

I am often contacted by ladies who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, who ask me ‘Helen, is there any way that you can give me some eyebrows, as I don’t think I can handle losing them when I have to start chemo’.

My answer – is yes. Of course, if you are already undergoing chemo, then it’s not a safe procedure for you. But if you are newly diagnosed, getting permanent makeup can give you a sense of control, at a time where everything is spiralling. It can also help you feel better about your appearance when you wake up in the morning, and the more confidence that a woman has during a time when she is fighting cancer – the better!

It can help women with thyroid conditions feel confident again.

An underactive thyroid can mean a thinning of the eyebrows (and hair all over the body). Permanent makeup can add volume to thinning brows, for anyone who is living with a thyroid condition. A sluggish thyroid can make a massive impact on a woman’s physical appearance – weight gain, thin sparse eyebrows, and thinning hair in general, can really knock a person’s confidence.

With anxiety and depression also going hand in hand with this, the last thing you want is for the you that you see in the mirror to get you down too isn’t it?

It can help with asymmetry of the facial features.

If your lips are thin, or your eyebrows are different shapes and sizes, then permanent makeup can be a real confidence booster. It can make asymmetrical features appear…. Symmetrical! What can be a real bother for one person, may not even be visible to another – but if it is something that bothers YOU when you get up and look in the mirror, then it might be time to address things.

So – there you have it!  Permanent makeup can be confidence enhancing, reconstructive, and life changing. If you have any of these issues going on for you and you would like to speak to me in confidence about it, then book a free consultation or email me.

3 reasons that permanent makeup is a total game changer

3 reasons that permanent makeup is a total game changer 2000 1443 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Hello, it’s Helen and today, I wanted to talk about permanent makeup.

Now I don’t know about you, but my time is really precious. Whether I am at home or in the Clinic, I value every minute of it. I am constantly looking for ways to manage my time for effectively, and so as you can imagine, I don’t like spending longer than I need to when it comes to applying makeup.

One of the biggest game changers that I’ve found that has made a difference to MY life, and also to hundreds of clients – is permanent makeup.

With permanent makeup applied beautifully, I can get up and go, and just ENJOY my day. I absolutely LOVE permanent makeup and here are 3 reasons why permanent makeup is a total game changer

1.   You save time. And life is short. Who doesn’t want that?

In many ways, saving time is the main reason as to why lots of us choose to get permanent makeup applied. Because life is busy, and spending time at the mirror attempting to create that perfect brow quite frankly stresses us!

I’ve worked with clients who would spend literally hours applying their makeup, maybe YOU are one of them. When they have reported back to me about how they have found things since having their treatment, the answer is always that it’s life changing.

I’ve had women contact me,  in particular after getting permanent eyebrows done, to tell me that they save hours a day as they no longer stress about applying their eyebrows!

2. You look better on the outside.

Have you ever stood and drawn your eyebrows on, only to wipe them off 5 minutes later? How annoying is that? Permanent eyebrows is the most requested form of permanent makeup at the Clinic and really will put a stop to that.

Getting permanent makeup means that you can skip that process and ‘get up and go’, knowing that you look just as good in the morning as when you did when you went to bed

Professionally applied permanent makeup is a form of artistry and the results are outstanding. When I work with a client, I like to make sure that I don’t class it as a ‘job complete’ until I have achieved perfection.  Take permanent eyebrows for example – every single little hair is ‘created’ which leaves  a very natural looking browline. You can’t achieve results like that with makeup

3. You feel better on the inside.

Getting permanent makeup can honestly be life changing. Clients have reported back to me that they feel like a weight has been lifted! It’s so easy to become obsessed about your makeup, always checking in the mirror to see if it still looks perfect, setting the alarm clock to get up at a ridiculous time in the morning, and going into a mild panic at the thought of actually staying out overnight anywhere.

Waking up to makeup can give you freedom, and that in itself is priceless.

So, if you have been thinking about trying permanent makeup, but would like to know a little bit more about it, why not get comfortable and have a read of the information here.

And if you already know that it’s what you’re looking for, but want to come in and discuss it, then book your free consultation here.

As always, it’s been a real pleasure to have your company, and I look forward to seeing you. And don’t forget to keep being social over on Facebook, you can find us here.

Facial Fillers – and Four Places You Can Have Them!

Facial Fillers – and Four Places You Can Have Them! 1024 1024 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Fillers can dramatically improve the appearance of your face – but when you think about them, what’s the first thing that springs to mind? It’s probable that it’s the image of plumped up lips, but did you know you can also have filler injected in various areas of the face?

It’s the reason they’re referred to as ‘facial fillers’ and not just ‘lip fillers’ – and the type we use here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics offers benefits which last several months.

In the Lips

Enhancing your natural pout, lip fillers can make your pout appear healthier and more feminine – and they can easily be broken down over the course of a few months. What that means for you is your fillers won’t be a permanent fixture in your face; if you decide you’d like to go au naturale again, you can!

In the Cheeks

Plumping the area for a fresher, brighter look, cheek filler is performed by our highly-skilled team to give you more confidence in the way you look.

Correcting sunken cheeks and contouring the area to restore lost volume, cheek filler is a safe option for anyone who’s looking to spoil themselves with a treatment in 2019; go on, get booked in and look forward to a new you in the new year.

For the Tear Trough

Focusing on the depressions and droopiness that can appear under the eyes, tear trough facial filler treatment can make you look fresher and more youthful. It’s needed when the bone and the skin loses density, due to age.

If this is you, you may find that you have eye bags or dark circles – but the tear trough plasma filler treatment at Helen Taylor Aesthetics can help a great deal.

To Replace Surgical Rhinoplasty

It can be massively daunting to go ‘under the knife’, but if you’ve always wanted a daintier-looking nose and don’t want to commit to surgery, non-surgical rhinoplasty– via the wonder of facial filler – is the route to go down.

This safe filler is also hugely effective – so why not chat to our team here at the clinic and get booked in for your free, no-obligation consultation?

We’d also be happy to talk you through any concerns about facial filler – or answer any of your questions. Plus, if you’re feeling anxious about your upcoming visit to the clinic, this blog should help prepare you.

All-Natural Fillers

It’s called Biofil and it contains your own blood. Sounds gruesome but it really does pack a punch when it comes to boosting your appearance – and with it, your confidence. Once reinjected into the skin, the filler can target the appearance of wrinkles, but it can also be used to treat much larger areas. Biofil is a vegan-friendly product that has revolutionised the aesthetics industry. It uses a plasma-based product extracted from your blood and it works to add volume wherever you need it.

Look Good, Feel Good with These Aesthetics Treatments

Look Good, Feel Good with These Aesthetics Treatments 1260 1260 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

It’s January, which means you’ve probably heard the phrase look good feel good about 34,567 times already – and we aren’t even half way through the month.

But there’s real meaning behind that old adage – and we do (well, most of us anyway) feel great when we look our best.

So here on the blog, we’re bringing you one treatment that will make you look good in 2019 – and beyond. But what is it? Say hello to the wonder of permanent makeup!

Look Good with Permanent Makeup

eyebrow tattoo

If your goal in 2019 is to improve the way you feel about yourself by tweaking your appearance, this is the treatment for you.

Permanent makeup is huge news in the aesthetics industry, with big-name celebs showing off everything from perfectly groomed eyebrows to gorgeously neat lip liner. Of course, this can be achieved with semi-permanent makeup, via eyebrow tattoos or semi-permanent lip liner– and you can spread the cost of your treatment, too.

You can even have your eyeliner expertly drawn on – and you’ll also leave our clinic with thorough aftercare instructions to ensure you get the very best from your beautiful new, permanent eyebrows.

What happens during your permanent eyebrows treatment?

Permanent brows are one of our most popular procedures here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics, so we thought we’d make it the focus of this blog. The treatment itself is ideal for anyone who’d like to enhance the look and shape of their natural brows. Resulting in perfectly-defined brows, the procedure can also be beneficial for anyone suffering from alopecia ortrichotillomania.

Are permanent brows permanent?

Also known as eyebrow tattoos, permanent eyebrows aren’t realty permanent as the name would suggest – but can instead last up to two years. When you consider that you might otherwise spend in the region of £30 per monthly eyebrow treatment, semi-permanent brows can save you a small fortune – not to mention time! After all, you won’t need to make a regular trip to your usual beauty salon; following your consultation and your brow appointment, you’ll only need to come in for your touch-up a handful of weeks later.

Semi-permanent lip liner offers the same benefits, meaning you can save yourself some much-needed time in the morning – and save money on regular makeovers before your usual Friday night out. Our skilled aestheticians can perfectly define your lips in a colour of your choice – or they can help you pick a complementing shade that will do your everyday look justice.

If you’re unsure whether these permanent eyeliner or semi-permanent lip liner treatments are for you, simply click the corresponding links above to read more about them. You can also see regular before and after photos via our Facebook and Instagram accounts, as well as read reviews from our clients.

Here is Kayleigh’s story.. please take a look.
So pleased to have met Kayleigh.
Congratulations on your wedding 👰🏻🎩🎊

“I previously had my brows tattooed by a ‘professional’ local to my home, I carried out so much research on her and certainly didn’t go for the cheapest option with her however from the minute I left her salon I regretted my decision. I suffered a horse riding accident when I was 18 with left my face disfigured and unsymmetrical which is one of the reasons I originally wanted my brows tattooed I was sick of levelling things up with brow pencils and it running or smudging in the heat. After I visited her I was left with unsymmetrical brows that over time turned blue and were the wrong shape for face, not only did they look terrible it had such an impact on my confidence. I searched high and low for a clinic that offers correctional work or removal. After sending photos, most clinics came back to me to say that there was anything that could be done and I would need several sessions of laser removal as they were so blue and deep. However Helen answered my prayers and recommended that I have a consultation with her so that she could see them in the flesh. It was agreed that they were terrible; Helen didn’t hold back and said exactly what was wrong with them. Helen advised that it would be a long and possibly painful process but would do her best to work with them. I am due to get married this Saturday (9th Sept) and I really wanted perfect brows in time for my big day so I could look back at my photos and like what I seen, previously I would avoid photos at all costs. Laser removal started very soon after my consultation and not going to lie it wasn’t a pleasant experience, my face swelled like Quasimodo, the day after I looked like the twin sister of Hitch from the film and I really worried I had done the wrong thing however this only lasted a couple of days, I followed the instructions Helen gave me religiously and for the next laser session I had hardly any affects afterwards, and the next one was completely pain free and no after affects. All this worry and discomfort was so worth it when I visited Helen for the 5th time at the beginning of August to have my new brows put on. Wow what a difference, not only to my face but to my confidence and the way I feel about myself. Helen you are truly amazing and extremely talented professional that I would highly recommend to anyone I come across that is wanting semi-permanent make up. My brows are so close to perfect now you have worked with them, and I have no doubt after my top up session in a few weeks they will be even better than perfect. You really don’t understand the difference you have made; I can smile on my wedding photos this weekend and have every reason to smile. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for agreeing to treat me and putting up with all the daft questions and panic messages throughout the process. xxx” – Kayleigh’s Facebook Review
