Semi Permanent Make Up
Semi Permanent Make Up
What is Semi Permanent Make up ?
Semi Permanent Make up is a cosmetic technique which deposits pigment into the dermis layer of the skin. I work very superficially in the skin and use a pigment which is designed to break down over time and gradually fade out the skin.
How long will it last?
Permanent makeup will last approximately 3-5 years but annual top ups are recommended every 12-18 months to keep it looking best.
Does it hurt?
Everyone has a slightly different pain threshold but most people find it slighty uncomfortable but keeping my clients as comfortable as possible throughout is my priority.

Avoid any activity that will cause you to sweat on the day of your treatment. Do no take aspirin, fish oil, coudamin, vitamin E or ibuprofen 48-72 hours prior before unless medically advised. Paracetamol is fine. You have to have stopped taking acne medication (Accutane) for one year - no exceptions. Avoid caffeine/alcohol the day before and after your treatment. Smoking will cause the pigment to prematurely fade and your anaesthetics you apply will not last as long. You are responsible for maintaining your appointments.
Do not have tan/sunburn on your face on the day of your treatment. NO SUN 30 days prior and post treatment (re-touch also). If you arrive at your appointment with a tan/sunburn you will be required to reschedule and your deposit will be forfeited. I reserve the right to apply at my own discretion if I feel that pre-procedure advice has not been followed.
If you get your brows waxed or tinted, get this done 1 week before the procedure. It is also recommended to wait at least 30 days to have them tinted/waxed after the procedure.
30 minutes after your treatment please wash the treated area with cool, clean cotton pads to remove any blood/lymphatic fluid from the treated area. Repeat this 2 more times leaving 2 hourly intervals in between. Then clean and cream morning and evening for 14 days. If you accidentally get the area wet use a dry tissue and pat gently. Ease only use cream I provide on the treated area.
Only touch the area with clean hands during the healing process. Any scabbing or flaking will naturally shed. Some
itching is normal, but please don't pick, peel or scratch the treated area as the colour may heal unevenly and you will risk scarring and infection.
Do NOT apply any creams or makeup on your brows for 2 weeks after your treatment. You can get your brows wet after 2 weeks from your initial treatment, but only if all of the scabs have disappeared. Your aftercare procedure is just as important
as your initial treatment. Absolutely NO exercise, swimming, sunbathing, sun beds, saunas, direct shower spray, water or makeup should be applied in the area during the healing period. (14 days after treatment) Avoid sleeping on your face 2 weeks after the treatment.
No swimming until the area has completely healed. It is recommended to apply some vaseline to your brows when swimming after healing to protect the colour and stop chlorine/salt water from entering.
There are many factors that can affect the result of your treatment. The main factor is the aftercare. The better you look after your Brows the longer they will last.
Our skin changes as we age so eventually the permanent makeup will look more powdered. This happens will all PMU procedures. Hair strokes will appear crisp and bold at first, but will soften up in appearance as the tissue heals. The area will shed, taking some colour. This is normal. The brows will start to oxidise and darken over the 1st month. It is common to have some areas fading more than others. This is part of the healing process and will be treated at the recommended top up appointment.
Skin type is also another factor that can affect the result. If you have oily skin, your results will look softer and more powdered instead of crisp strokes. If you have dark skin, please be aware your PMU will not appear as bold as lighter skin types. Red heads, blondes and fair skin types may experience more fading than darker skin types.
Pixal Brow is our powder brow. Techniques can be adapted to keep these as soft, or defined as you wish. Used to replicate the finish of brow makeup, good for those who are used to filling in the natural brow on a daily basis. Ombre, soft powders, bold powders …. The choice is yours! Suitable for any skin type.
Combination Brow a mix of our HairStroke & PixalBrow for when you just can’t decide or you like the look of both! Strokes can be placed anywhere around the brow to keep your fronts / edges super soft with the addition of shading to strengthen & add more definition. Suitable for any skin type.
Hairstroke Brow is your other option for a super natural finish. Soft strokes are placed throughout the brow replicating natural hairs. Great for those who are not used to wearing makeup on the brows and would like to enhance / reshape existing (or non exiting) brows. Good for dry / normal skin.

InvisiBrow is a technique to give you the softest, most natural finish there is. Once healed, the InvisiBrow will give the illusion of that “just tinted” feel to the brows.

I can give you the most natural enhancement or something a little more vibrant, that perfect lip line back again or just give you lipstick that isn’t smudge proof .
A lash enhancement will give your lashes the appearance of thicker lashes. A Smokey lor Winged liner frames the eyes and can be a subtle or dramatic is you wish.
