Semi permanent make up is a cosmetic tattoo on your face.
Cosmetic tattooing gives a subtle and natural looking effect to eyebrows, eyes and lips and it usually lasts between 2 to 5 years. The results are truly amazing. This way you can keep your appearance always perfect.
** It is always advisable to choose your technician wisely based on pictures of their work, cheap treatments usually result in poor work with disappointing results. Badly done permanent make-up causes distress and often needs to be removed or camouflaged, which in the end makes it more costly.

We are very careful when it comes to your safety. You don’t need to worry about infections or blood born pathogens as we use 100% disposable tools, needles and cartridges. The needle cartridges we use have a safety membrane built in to ensure that there is no risk of pigment or bodily fluids travelling up the machine towards the motor and the hand piece. The membrane is also a one way system, ensuring that no bacteria, germs or infection is able to penetrate the membrane and contaminate the client’s bloodstream.
Your treatment begins with a permanent makeup consultation to discuss the range of designs, shapes and colours available. We will consider your skin tone, hair and eye colour. We custom mix colour for you individually and keep a record of that for future treatments, so every time you come back for top ups we can mix up the exact colours again.
During your consultation we will carry out a patch test to find out if you may be allergic to either pigment or numbing cream. You will be asked to fill in a medical questionairre form which will help us to make sure that you do not have any conditions / contraindications that would restrict the treatment.
Before we start the treatment we will draw the eyebrows, lips or eyeliner on with a pencil for your approval (we will take photos of the drawing, show it to you and ask to sign the design template ). After the treatment you will be adviced how to look after your new enhancement, and you will receive written aftercare instructions with a sachet of aftercare balm to take home.
A follow up appointment is available 4-6 weeks later, paying particular attention to fine detail. this is included in the treatment price.

PERMANENT MAKEUP AFTERCARE
You may resume normal activities straight after your treatment, clients often go back to work or out the same evening. There may be some slight swelling or redness but this is normal and shouldn’t last long. The selected colour will be sharper and more defined for about a week and then will shed away appearing as if little or no colour is present. Over the next two weeks the colour will blossom into a considerably softer version of the original colour. After care balm should be applied daily whilst the area is healing. Some activities such as having saunas and swimming need to be avoided whilst healing. Full aftercare instructions are given to every client post procedure.
What Shall I Do Before Receiving My Permanent Makeup Procedure?
Prior to your micro-pigmentation procedure think about the look that you wish to achieve. As experts in the field of colour analysis and makeovers, we ensure that the correct colours and styles are chosen for you, however you are part of the decision-making process. Micro-pigmentation enhancements normally require multiple application sessions. To achieve the best results you may be required to return for a complimentary tune-up procedure between 4 and 12 weeks after the initial application. Be prepared for the colour intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become softer as the skin heals. This process can take up to 14 days.
Eyebrow Enhancement Waxing and threading treatments should be performed no less than 1 week prior to your procedure. IPL laser hair removal should be performed no less than 2 weeks prior to your procedure. Electrolysis treatments should be performed no less than 2 weeks prior to your procedure. Eyebrow tinting should be performed no less than 4 weeks prior to your procedure. Eyebrow hair stimulating products should not be used for 4 weeks prior to your procedure.

Lip Enhancement If you have a history of cold sores (herpes simplex) and are scheduling a lip enhancement we advise you to use anti-herpes medication for example Zovirax ointment that can be obtained from a chemist. Use the preparation 1-week prior and 1-week after your enhancement 5 times a day to reduce the incidence of outbreak by 50%. Oral anti-herpes medication (available on prescription) will control the incidence of an outbreak more or less completely. Micro-pigmentation does not cause cold sores, however if you carry the virus, it lays dormant in the nervous system and can be aroused by the infusion process. IPL laser hair removal around the mouth should be carried out no less than 2 weeks prior to your procedure. Waxing and bleaching treatments should be performed no less than 2 weeks prior to your procedure. Electrolysis treatments should be performed no less than 2 weeks prior to your procedure.
