Frequently asked questions

What does a procedure involve?


All treatments include a full consultation either on the day of treatment or prior to if required. The consultation is a relaxed in depth conversation to ascertain what the client is wanting to achieve. We will discuss the best style, colour and shape to compliment features and suit skin tones. Brows will then be drawn on for clients approval prior to tattoing. Feedback is encouraged and brows will be re done as many times as is necessary to get the look the client is happy with. The procedure - using a specialist digital facial tattooing machine hypo allergenic pigments are carefully placed into the upper layers of the skin using ultra fine needles. Anaesthetic gels and creams are used to numb the area likening the resulting sensation as that of an electric toothbrush running over your skin. Full aftercare guidance given. Top Up Treatment - Between 4 weeks and 3 months after intial treatment. Due to everyone being individual brows heal individually. Some areas may not have held the colour as well as others therefore this shorter appointment allows me the opportunity to ensure your brows are the best they can be for as long as they can be!




Does it hurt?


Everybody is different when it comes to sensitivity. Most people are pleasantly
surprised at how pain free the procedure is. We do our very best to ensure you are
comfortable from start to finish.




Am I suitable for this treatment?


Your medial background will be fully assessed during your consultation. Whilst there
are some contra indications to procedures these are fairly uncommon. A patch test
will always be carried out to ensure your suitability for the products that will be used.




Are permanent cosmetics really permanent?


The cosmetics implantation technique deposits color pigment into the upper reticular layer of the skin and is considered permanent because it cannot be washed off. Unlike traditional tattoos performed on the body, permanent cosmetics professionals do not use traditional tattoo ink (dye). Permanent cosmetics pigment is more delicate and designed to work with the skin’s undertones and to mimic hair. Every person’s skin is different in regarding pigment retention. Factors which effect longevity of permanent cosmetics are: color selected, age, thickness of skin, scarring of skin, use of skin care products, injectables, laser treatments, medication and sun exposure. You will need periodic refreshing of color, depending on how light the shade of implanted pigment, as well as factors mentioned above.




Why permanent makeup?


Permanent makeup is a helpful option for a variety of people whether they are looking for an enhancement and don’t have time to do makeup every morning or for those who have suffered from hair loss. It is also a great alternative for anyone looking to simplify their beauty routine, whether that’s getting out of bed and spending less time in front of the mirror, going to the gym, in a profession that dictates being in front of the camera or on stage frequently, or even going swimming without having to worry about their makeup coming off. Permanent makeup is also a great option for people who have loss of vision or loss of motor skills due to aging or medical conditions.




How long is the healing process?


As everyone is different healing times vary however as a general rule the skins
surface heals within 3- 7 days. Until the skins surface has healed you will need to
take particular care of the area and full aftercare will be provided.




Can I bring a friend?


Yes, of course, as long as they are over 18.




What are the risks?


To obtain the result of “semi permanent” the procedure does break the skins barrier
and is therefore invasive. There is the risk of infection if aftercare advice is not
followed. Other risks include undesired result or colour and misplaced colour or
scaring. These risks are minimised as we adhere to the highest standards of health
and safety and always conduct a full consultation.




Do I have to remove all my brow hair?


No, we work with your natural brow hair so it’s best not to even tweeze before your
appointment.




I am pregnant can I have the treatment?


We do not tattoo anyone who is either pregnant or breastfeeding.




How old do I have to be to have permanent cosmetics?


Between 18 and 118.




I have had my lashes tinted / permed can I still have a lash liner treatment?


Yes, as long as it was done a week before or you wait two weeks after the treatment.
