Semi Permanent Make Up FAQs
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 several 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 several 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 18 months/2 years to keep the look complete and fresh. A "top up" appointment is half the current full treatment price.
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.
