Semi Permanent Make-up for Cleft Lip
A cleft lip is developed during foetal development. It is caused when the palate area fails to close and one or two fissures remain. It mostly affects the top lip but can also have an effect on the nose, leaving you with disfigured nostrils. Using a number of different treatments, it is possible to give you a better, more natural looking shape to your lips. Our treatments involve micro pigmentation and in some cases MCA (dry needling).
Cleft is a congenital disorder. Most of the time it only affects the top lip, but can affect the nose as well resulting in differently shaped nostrils. Corrective surgery is now done at an early age but there are many older patients who require asymmetry to their top lip, which can be done by micro pigmentation.
By repositioning the illusion of the cupids bow to the centre of the lips a dramatic change can be seen immediately after procedure. This can be worked upon creating full and shaped lips. Sometimes the scar above the lips needs to be worked first by MCA (dry needling). This action can flatten and soften the scar making the creation of the cupids bow more successful.
*NB – The initial Cleft Lip treatment takes up to an hour as does each follow up retouch session.
