Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS SEMI PERMANENT MAKEUP?

It is an exacting procedure in which carefully applied semi permanent pigment is placed into the dermal layer of the skin. The pigment is made of a natural iron oxide. It is hypo-allergic, and there are no fragrances, emollients or other ingredients added.

Your preferred colour is implanted into a lower layer of the skin, where it remains for up to five years. The pigments we use are non-reactive and virtually limitless in the choice of colour.

This make up is perfectly safe.

The treatment has been approved by doctors and reviewed extremely favourably by many beauty writers.

WHAT CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH THIS?

Today’s techniques can achieve fine light lines of colour. These can be subtly layered to create natural results indistinguishable from regular make up.

Most semi permanent make up these days lasts for the amount of time that the client desires so they don’t have to worry about it looking odd as the skin ages.

THE PROCEDURE

Treatments start with a consultation and colour analysis to discover the best make up look for each individual.

Pharmaceutical grade pigments will then be custom mixed to suit their colouring.

An airbrush type gun is used to add pigments to the top layer of the skin (The dermal layer) and a numbing cream will be applied to the area before this happens.

For the first couple of days the pigment may appear darker than it will eventually look and the surrounding area may also be slightly red but scabbing is infrequent.

A retouch may be scheduled for a few weeks time to achieve a perfect result.

DOES IT HURT?

There is usually minimal discomfort.

We use topical anaesthetics to greatly reduce discomfort and promote relaxation. Some clients feel nothing except a prickly sensation.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

This varies with each individual person.

The expectation is between two and five years.

WHAT ABOUT INFECTION?

Safety is our priority. At all times, we adhere to the strictest sterilisation procedures.

Only new, sterile, disposable needles are used for complete safety.

We have been highly trained in this art to exacting standards.

WHAT IS THE HEALING PERIOD?

On the second day after a procedure, a light crust will form, this is only dry to your touch, and will fall off in a few days.

During this time the pigment area may look darker than the colour you decided upon but once the crust flakes off it will lighten by up to 40%.

DOES IT LOOK NATURAL?

Very natural!

Your features look more defined, friends will never know the difference unless you tell them.

HOW SOON CAN I GO OUT?

Immediately! The colour may appear a little darker than usual for the first few days

The crusting is only slightly visible, but usually never really noticeable.

Had my consultation with Teresa and from walking in she put me at ease straight away. I had my brows done and oh boy I'm overwhelmed by them, I cannot believe the difference in my appearance which I thought I was happy... So a huge thank you Teresa you are so talented, professional and wonderful... My hubby loves them too so double whammy! No more tedious hours in the mirror and goodbye eye powder. The most fabulous professional lady I have ever met - I LOVE my brows! This lady is brilliant!

Thank you so much Teresa. My brows look amazing and have made such a difference. No more drawing them on myself, one higher than the other! I am so happy with them and can't thank you enough. I'll definitely be recommending you to my fiends. I had semi permanent brows, which were less painful than the microblading I had done last year, and look a million times better. Thanks again, I love them!

Donna

I just wanted to say a big thank you for my wonderful brows. It's only been 3 days since I had them done by Teresa but I absolutely love them! Such a professional job. I was so nervous about semi permanent but she talked me through all my options. She is super professional, all the paper work is done and double checked beforehand and then she takes her time to make sure I was happy before my treatment. I felt like I was in good hands and I certainly was! I'm so impressed and would recommend to anyone! Thank you so much. x

A very big thanks to Teresa. An amazing difference, so natural. Great expertise and very quick. The time taken before is the main time, spent on the whole sorting out which is important. Would recommend it to people like myself who have over plucked their eyebrows. Definately a must - Thanks again!

I had hardly any natural eyebrows left after years of over plucking. I am so thrilled with the result. My face is lifted and younger looking – better than botox and so much more natural.

Amazing results! Teresa I simply can't thank you enough for your expertise and pure talent. From having no eyebrows to having absolutely stunning eyebrows! My confidence is overwhelming, not to mention I actually look years younger. Received my top up today and I'm over the moon with the results. Teresa you simply have transformed my looks and confidence. Once again a huge thank you. xx

Thank you to Teresa for a wonderful experience. My eyebrows look amazing and make so much difference to my face. I had a problem before with one brow lower than the other making my eye very droopy looking, this has now been enhanced and looks much better and has lost the droopy effect.
