Frequently asked questions
What does a procedure involve?
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?
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.

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

Between 18 and 118.
