What is permanent make up?
Permanent make up is applied to the eyebrows, lashline or lips and ensures that you will always look your best, even without traditional make up.
It is similar to tattooing, but the specially designed pigments are implanted slightly shallower into the skin, using a machine. The pigments used are organic and hypoallergenic.
Microblading is used on the eyebrows only and uses a hand tool to implant pigments.
How long does it last?
Depending on skin type and area treated, permanent make up can last for at least 18 months
to 2 years, with lip treatments often lasting even longer. However top up treatments are recommended in order to keep your look absolutely pristine. A free ‘top up’ or perfection appointment (for 4-6 weeks after healing) is included in the initial treatment price.
Who is it suitable for?
Permanent make up is suitable for most people and this will be confirmed during our preliminary discussions and a thorough in person consultation, addressing medical history, allergies and so on. It is particularly suitable for people…..
- With a busy life, who just have no time to apply and re-apply make up
- Who participate in sports or swimming
- With facial hair loss or patchiness (due to chemotherapy, alopecia etc)
- Who find make up difficult to apply due to conditions such as Parkinsons, MS, Arthritis, old age.
- Who suffer from poor eyesight
- Who are allergic to traditional make up products
All ages will benefit from permanent make up application, but clients must be over 18 years.
What will happen at my first appointment?
We will discuss everything that you need to know about the procedure…
You will have previously had a patch test for all of the products that will be used during the procedure and we will discuss the outcome of this. We will then go through your medical history, discuss allergies and concerns and talk about your expectations and preferences.
Depending on the area to be treated I will measure and draw guidelines on the skin to ensure that everything is even, symmetrical and perfectly shaped to flatter your face. We will only proceed once you have confirmed that you are completely happy.
Before and during the procedure numbing (anaesthetic) cream is used, making the treatment virtually painless.
After treatment you will be given aftercare advice and a free aftercare pack.
