BASIC INFORMATIONS

What is Permanent Makeup?


Permanent Makeup ( PMU or also known as Micropigmentation ) replicates the basic fundamentals of tattooing, however, instead of ink being implanted into the lower levels of the skin, uniquely formulated, hypo-allergenic pigments are deposited into a higher level of the skin. Permanent Makeup treatments are one of the most sought after beauty treatments of recent years. Some people choose to undergo PMU to enhance their features, whereas others may consider PMU for medical reconstruction.




Are there any precautions that should be taken before the procedure ?


Only with the lip procedures. If you have ever had a fever blister or carry the Herpes virus, then it is advisable to consult your physician prior to the procedure for a prescription of an anti-viral medication, such as Famvir, Valtrex or Zovirax. This will greatly reduce the risk of a breakout. I’ve read that you should begin taking them 5-7 days prior to the procedure and 3 days after the procedure. I’m not a doctor though, so please follow your doctors recommended dosage. It may also help to take L-Lysine tablets at least a week prior to and after the treatment; although I don’t recommend taking L-Lysine instead of anti-viral medication but in addition to it. It’s advisable to use a lip balm prior to treatment so that your lips are in good condition to achieve the best results prior to the treatment.




What is the difference between Semipermanent Makeup & Permanent Makeup?


Nothing. There is no difference between the two. The reason for the two terminologies is that in tge USA treatment is known as Permanent Makeup and in the U.K is known as Semipermanent Makeup. They are in fact the same. It will be soon mandatory for the treatment to be recognised as Permanent Makeup in the U.K also. As Permanent Makeup is a form of cosmetic tattoo, it is possible in some cases that the pigment may never leave the skin entirely but will soften/fade over time.




Can I have Permanent Makeup treatments whilst pregnant?


Treatments are not advised.Most definitely NOT! Please do not tweeze, thread, wax or modify your eyebrows in any way for as long as possible, and no sooner than two weeks. The beginning of your service includes a brief consultation, followed by shaping and finally a discussion about color. Your regular brow maintenance of tweezing, threading, waxing and/or tinting may continue once the brows have healed.




Does it hurt ?


Everyone has a different level of sensitivity. An anesthetic is applied for numbing during the procedure to alleviate discomfort. Every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the duration of the procedure. Clients are usually pleased to discover that it is no more painful than having your eyebrows tweezed or threaded.
PLEASE NOTE: Having this service performed during your menstrual cycle may increase discomfort during your procedure.
If you are a frequent smoker, the topical anesthetics used during the treatment will not last as long. If you have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, be aware that this may affect your sensitivity tolerance to the procedure.




Do you remove my natural eyebrows?


Most definitely NOT! :) Please do not tweeze, thread, wax or modify your eyebrows in any way for as long as possible, and no sooner than two weeks. The beginning of your service includes a brief consultation, followed by shaping and finally a discussion about color. Your regular brow maintenance of tweezing, threading, waxing and/or tinting may continue once the brows have healed.




How old do I have to be ?


You must be 18 years or older to receive semipermanent makeup treatment.




What is the difference between the Microblading and Micropigmentation / Permanent Makeup?


The first thing to know is that both methods are cosmetic tattoos. Don't let anyone tell you microblading is not. Microblading - hand tool method. With Microblading a technician will use a "micro-blade" to create hair stroke-like incisions in the skin. Is important to mention that Microblading is not suitable for most of the skin types. Micropigmentation - digital device method The exact same principle can be applied using a digital device which is more high tech, whilst using a specially designed needle. But there is no cuts made in the skin (allowing for less trauma to the skin) and the digital technique is exactly the same as when you might see a normal tattoo but more superficial. The device and digital technique is also suitable for 99% of the skins that walk into any clinic anywhere in the world. Whereas Microblading is suitable for only 5% of all skin types. Another key benefit of Micropigmentation is that a variety of areas can be treated (Eyebrows, Lips, Eyes, Scalp & for the use in medical reconstruction). Micropigmentation also allows for a variety of eyebrows styles such a hugely popular Ombre Powder Brows or a Hair Stroke Techniques.




How may treatments are needed ?


It is common to need two-three appointments to get to your desired outcome. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. If your permanent cosmetic does not heal perfectly the first time, do not worry! We can always go bolder and add more density at your next desired appointment.




How will I look immediatelly after ?


The treatment area will look 40-70% darker for the first 5-7 days. The colour will soften over the next 4 weeks.




How do you create the best results for me ?


Before pigment implantation, pre-drawing designs takes place. Designing considers your objectives regarding shape/colour as well as your facial dimensions amd symmetry. Numerous tools and techniques are used to help design the best results for you.




How long will the treatment take?


Depending on the treatment, I recommend at least 2 hours for each new procedure to ensure you receive a detailed and personalised consultation and treatment.




Is Permanent Makeup for me?


The benefits of Permanent Makeup are endless and adapted to your needs : To correct and redefine eyebrows To lessen time in daily makeup application For those with allergies to conventional makeup For athletes or those enjoying an active lifestyle To wake up, made up each day To correct and redefine the lips Medical reconstruction Hair/Scalp Enhancement when hair loss is experienced.
