What is Semi-Permanent Make-up?
Semi-Permanent Make-up is a non-surgical treatment that replicates flawlessly applied ‘conventional’ cosmetics through the infusion of coloured, pharmaceutical grade pigments into the skin. Results are instant and long lasting, bringing definition to facial features.
Who is Semi-Permanent Make-up suitable for?
Every woman who wants to feel good about herself and confident that her make-up application is faultless with an endurance way beyond anything conventional cosmetics can offer! There may be some conditions or medications that prevent some individuals from receiving this treatment, however this will be covered during the consultation process
Is Semi-Permanent Make-up safe?
Yes! We follow a strict code of conduct that ensures the safety of our clients. Meticulous standards of hygiene are followed with the use of disposable cartridges and gloves etc.
Does it hurt?
You will feel a sensation during the treatments which each patient describes differently. Client comfort is an important measure of all semi-permanent procedures. It does hurt a little, but is rather more uncomfortable than unbearable. We use potent numbing agents, before and throughout the procedure to maximise client comfort.
How long do the results last for?
The results can last from anywhere to 6 months to 12 – 18 months. The actual length of time is variable and depends on factors such as UV / sun exposure, skin type, beauty regimen, the density of colour implanted into the skin. All enhancements will require a colour boost or top up every year or two to maintain their definition and colour.
Some clients will require a second treatment 1 to 2 months after initial treatment to achieve best results.
Can I play sport or swim immediately following my procedure?
We recommend that you avoid sport on the day of the procedure, and avoid swimming, saunas and steam rooms for 7 days or until the skin has fully healed as this could cause infection and the tattoo
How will I look immediately afterwards?
Right after brow procedures they will usually appearing darker. There generally is some redness around the areas treated, however this can be expected to reside within a day of the treatment.
Can I wear make-up afterwards?
It is advised not to wear normal cosmetics until the skin has healed as this may cause infection and/or hinder the healing process. If you absolutely have to, a light application of newly opened mineral make-up using new/clean brushes and wands is permitted, but we would rather you keep the treatment site hygienically clean and lightly moisturized to promote efficient healing.
How long does the procedure take?
Generally the procedures take approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Is there anything I need to do before a treatment?
We ask that all clients receiving any of our cosmetic tattoo treatments arrive 20 minutes prior to your appointment time for application of topical anesthetic. We also ask that you arrive with the area to be treated clean and free or any existing make-up.
For those having our Feather Touch Brow Tattoo, you may have your brows shaped prior to your appointment to assist in achieving the most desired brow shape.
