Permanent Makeup Questions Answered
You are bound to have questions about Permanent Makeup, in this FAQ section, we have covered our most frequently asked but please do not hesitate to contact us with any additional questions.
Does it hurt?
It is completely normal to feel anxious about the procedures. We use a range of topical anaesthetics to ensure that you are as relaxed as possible during the treatment and that any discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum. Most clients describe the sensation as ‘tingling vibrations’ rather than pain and many fall asleep during the procedure.
Who can have the treatment?
Providing that there are no medical contraindications, anyone over the age of 18 can have permanent make up. We will send out medical forms and a patch test before the procedure and can discuss the results during your consultation.
Is it permanent?
The pigment will affect everyone differently depending on skin tone, sun exposure, lifestyle and medication. The treatments can last several years but due to the elements listed above we do recommend an annual maintenance appointment.
How long does it take?
Procedures vary in length and can range from between 90 minutes to 2 hours, we are happy to discuss this during your consultation.
What can I expect before the treatment?
Please do not have any lash/brow tinting or perming for 2 weeks before and after the treatment, please remove contact lenses before any lash enhancements. We will send out a welcome pack which includes full pre and post treatment instructions.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Following the treatment you make experience some redness and swelling, the skin may flake from around day 4 – this can be minimised by applying the aftercare balm. The pigment will appear darker and more defined on the day of the treatment and will reduce by up to 60% once the skin has completely healed. We recommend attending the control visit (between 4-12 weeks post treatment) to assess how the pigment has settled and any touch ups that are required.
