What is Semi-Permanent Make up?
It is a process where advanced pigments are inserted into the dermal layer of the skin, which (after their second visit), should last for upto 5 years. Clients are patch tested prior to the first procedure to see if they my have any allergic reaction to the pigment or anaesthetic. 99.9% of people do not have any reaction at all.
How Long Does it Take to Have a Treatment?
You will need to allow 1.5 hours for your first procedure. If you intend to have a "full face" (3 procedures together) then you should allow 3 hours in total.
How Long Does it Last?
Semi-Permanent Make-up should last for upto 5 years. Over that time the colour will fade and break down. It is suggested that you come back to us for a top up procedure every 12 to 18 months to keep the look complete and fresh.
Does It Hurt?
Some clients feel no discomfort at all - others feel minimal discomfort. We use topical anaesthetics to control pain tolerance. Clients say that having a procedure is similar to having their eyebrows plucked or their legs waxed. Once the procedure is complete there is no discomfort whatsoever.
Will I Be Able to Go Out Without Everyone Noticing?
After a procedure the area treated will be darker, more intense. This will last for a few days until the area exfoliates and the true colour emerges. Generally it is only you who notices the darker colour. If anaesthetic is used you may swell slightly - this will go down usually by the end of the day. It is suggested that if you are having an eyeliner procedure that you bring a pair of dark glasses with you (as you may look as if you have been crying). A little inconvenient but the long term results are well worth it.
What About After Care?
You will be given a comprehensive after care guide after the treatment, along with verbal instructions.
