Q & A
What is Permanent Make up?
Simply put, it is a cosmetic procedure, where micro mineral pigments are implanted into the upper dermal layer of the skin. When the procedure is completed it will give the appearance of make up or a natural correction of shape and definition and of missing hair.
How is the treatment carried out?
24 hours before the treatment a patch test is carried out, which involves placing a tiny bit of pigment into the skin, usually behind the ear to ensure you do not have any allergic reaction to the pigment. We will then have a consultation to discuss your procedure and your desired shape and colour. A cosmetic makeup pencil is then used to draw the Eyebrows, Lip Liner/Blush or Eyeliner in to place, allowing you to visualise the shape and look. Once you are completely satisfied the treatment will begin. I use a state of the art machine specifically designed for the cosmetic market. This is entirely different to machines used at tattoo studios. You can be reassured that all treatments are carried out to the strictest health & safety guidelines using single use sterile needle cartridges.
How long will it take?
Depending on your treatment we would recommend you allow 2-3 hours for your appointment.
Is the treatment painful?
Everybody is different when it comes to pain, some feel no discomfort and even fall asleep! Whilst others liken it to feeling scratchy.
How long will it last?
After treatment the pigment stays in the skin indefinitely, but remains visible for 12-18 months. The length of time the pigment shows varies, depending on your age, skin type, colour of your pigment and your lifestyle. It is recommended your treatment is refreshed every 12 months or so.
What can I expect after my treatment?
Immediately after your treatment you will experience slight swelling and redness however that will soon disappear. You may also experience flaking, tenderness, dryness and itching for 2 to 5 days after your treatment. The colour will also appear a lot darker straight after the treatment but will fade by 40% leaving it a lot lighter and more natural. The true colour will not come through until up to 4 weeks after your initial treatment as it is obscured by the healing skin.
