SEMI PERMANENT MAKEUP
THE NATURAL LOOK
At The Nova Clinic, we offer a range of semi permanent make up including eyebrows, eyeliner, lipline, lip blush, lip full color, beauty spot and color corrections to give you that perfectly natural look.
MICROPIGMENTATION is a non-surgical treatment where medical grade pigments are gently implanted into the dermal layer of the skin.
This pigment will, after a healing process, stay in the skin for a number of years – breaking down and fading with time, dependent on the client’s age, skin type and lifestyle.

Non-laser Tattoo Removal, using REJUVI which is a unique method of tattoo ink extraction which is designed to completely remove your tattoo ink pigments from the body. The treatment has been extensively researched, developed and tested for over ten years, and is being used worldwide.
The treatment utilizes similar methods as having the original tattoo. The removal formula is delivered to the ink using a tattoo or permanent make-up machine, therefore the treatment can only be performed by a trained tattoo or permanent make-up artist or medical professional. The extraction cream is specifically designed to blend with and capture the original tattoo ink.
The formula then forms into a thicker substance which the skin easily pushes out in the form similar to a scab, taking the captured tattoo ink with it. A number of treatments are normally required to completely remove a tattoo. After the treatment course is finished the skin should return to its natural state over a period of months. The benefits of the Rejuvi tattoo removal system over other methods of tattoo removal are numerous. This treatment is substantially less painful than other removal methods and the treatment course and subsequent tattoo removal is much faster and more effective than laser removal options.
There is also no need to avoid direct sunlight after treatment, (as is necessary with laser) and aftercare is relatively simple.
The Rejuvi tattoo removal system is suitable and effective for both professional or homemade tattoos and permanent make-up on most areas of the body. Sensitive areas near the eyes or areas where high levels of moisture occur may require special aftercare considerations.
The treatment is not colour selective (unlike laser) and acts on all colour pigments equally,
What Rejuvi Tattoo Removal is Not
It is important not to confuse the Rejuvi tattoo removal system, with any other method of tattoo removal.
- The Rejuvi treatment can only be administered by a trained tattoo or permanent makeup artist
- Rejuvi tattoo removal is not – a home applied treatment to fade your tattoo
- Rejuvi tattoo removal is not – a skin coloured cover up tattoo
- Rejuvi tattoo removal is not – a acid or bleach based fading treatment
- Rejuvi tattoo removal is not – a medical or surgical treatment
What’s in a tattoo?
Tattoos are created by injecting insoluble, micrometer-sized particles of ink into the second (dermal) layer of skin. The cells of the dermis are remarkably stable, so the tattoos ink will last, with minor fading and dispersion, for your entire life!
Why Laser removal fails Laser removal relies on using high energy pulses of light to smash the tattoo pigment into smaller particles so it may be absorbed by the body. The wavelengths of the laser light must be varied according to skin color, what color pigments are to be removed, the type of ink used (there are over 120 different inks currently in use), and the depth of the tattoo. Green and yellow are also difficult pigments for the lasers to eliminate due to the fact that they reflect most of the light energy. As all pigments can be traced back to the three primary colours; red, yellow and blue, it becomes clear that remaining pigment elements can be difficult if not impossible for lasers to totally eliminate
How Rejuvi Tattoo Removal Compares
Rejuvi tattoo removal is possibly the least painful method currently known for tattoo removal without resorting to use of general or local anesthetic. As the process uses the same tattoo method you have already been through, it is no more painful than that. The area is also treated with Painaway Solution, which is a powerful anesthetic agent to numb the skin prior to treatment.
Rejuvi tattoo removal is the fastest non surgical treatment to completely remove a tattoo. Typically a tattoo can be removed in three to four treatments. It takes between six to eight weeks for the treated area to heal sufficiently between treatments. This allows a tattoo to be removed in a matter of months. Laser treatment takes significantly longer.
Rejuvi tattoo removal is the most affordable compared to numerous laser treatments.
Rejuvi tattoo removal is safe. All surgical methods of tattoo removal are not only extremely painful but will also leave extensive scarring. Incidents of scarring from the Rejuvi tattoo removal treatment are extremely low and are comparable to laser, however the Rejuvi tattoo removal system will not cause long term skin texture or pigment changes like laser can. Also with Rejuvi tattoo removal you do not have to avoid exposure to direct sunlight after the treatment, unlike laser.
Rejuvi tattoo removal is proven. This treatment process has been researched and developed over ten years and in used worldwide, with many clinics in the world now offering the treatment. Some laser clinics have even changed to using Rejuvi!
MESO SKIN REJUVENATION
The Meso Vytal Cell Boost Concept has been developed to solve the problem of conventional methods that do not implant bigger particles deep enough into the dermal layer. Mainly the junction between the epidermis and the dermis and in targeted and hard to reach areas where they are most needed and where they can achieve the best possible results. The active substances stimulate the cells metabolism and contribute to their regeneration.
Particle sizes larger than 200nm cannot penetrate the epidermis; this means that the vitamins and hyaluronic acid are unable to pass through the epidermis. The only way to penetrate the epidermis is to inject, enhance delivery with laser advice or to punch holes into the epidermis. This system makes this possible by the flexible convex plate with 18 points it has a small surface of 5mm plate diameter the point length are 0.5mm allowing penetration into the skin between 0.2-0.3mm.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
No, the needles are plastic and are less invasive than other skin needling techniques.
What skin care routine do you recommend afterwards?
The beauty of these products is that you don’t have to buy an expensive skin care range after the treatment. Carry on using your usual skincare as long as it contains a SPF of at least 30.
Why is Meso Skin Rejuvention better than Rolling Needle Head Method Treatments ?
Vytal is less invasive; we do not need to use numbing creams on the skin which means the products are able to work better. The contoured needle head means you can be more specific in your treatments and target finer areas. You can go around the under eye area.
How will I look at the end of the treatment?
There is very little downtime with this treatment. Your client may look slightly red immediately after but his will quickly subside. The skin starts healing immediately and you should notice a difference within 2 treatments. If you have worked a little more on wrinkles or small scars these may take a day to subside. Your clients may experience some peeling and this is very normal. It is the dehydrated skin leaving the stratum corneum.
What aftercare solutions do I use?
There is an aftercare treatment included in the treatment package. Clients can use any product but will benefit more from the treatment if they use one with hyaluronic acid. Mineral make up is a great solution to camouflage any slight redness immediately post treatment.
How far apart are the treatments?
For the first 2 weeks it is recommended that the treatment is done 2 times per week and then 1 – 2 times per week thereafter to complete the course of 8 Treatments. For maintenance, Treatment should be carried out 1 every month to maintain optimal results.
How soon after Botox and Fillers can I have meso vital treatments?
With botox, must leave at least 14 days after a Botox treatment before starting a Meso Vytal. With fillers must leave at least 21 days after the fillers have ensure they have settled.
What is MICROBLADING ?
Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery is a Cosmetic Tattoo that is applied on
the Eyebrows by a manual technique using, a Blade Hand tool where the pigment is in effect – cut into the skin.
This procedure is somewhat more painful and usually does not last as long, as procedures that have
been done with a Digital Machine.
We use only the Digital Machine for all of our procedures (Cosmetic and Medical), where the pigment
is digitally implanted into the skin. This procedure is much easier/kinder to the skin, pain free and
with longer lasting results… so your need for a Top Up/ Retouch treatment, is less frequent.
