Are permanent cosmetics a form of tattooing?

Permanent cosmetic enhancement – also known as semi permanent make-up and micro-pigmentation – is an advanced form of tattooing, however the pigment is not infused as deeply into the skin and therefore the enhancement will not have the permanency of a conventional tattoo.

The pigments I use replicate the colour choices available with conventional cosmetics enabling me to achieve subtle, natural results.

Is the procedure safe?

I follow a strict code of practice that ensures a safe treatment. I choose to work only with hypoallergenic pigments that meet European medical standards and perform an allergy/sensitivity test before the treatment commences .I only also use the highest quality sterile needles, which are disposed of immediately after the treatment is completed. My working environment also follows a strict hygiene protocol.

Will it hurt?

I use a selection of effective numbing agents to minimise any discomfort you might experience. The discomfort felt can be likened to that associated with tweezing eyebrows. Sensitivity and pain threshold obviously vary from person to person.

How will I know the colour you select for my procedure will suit me?

I work with Cosmetic Permanent Cosmetic Pigments, the market leaders, who offer the most advanced selection of coloured pigments available for permanent makeup use. This ensures that I am able to blend a bespoke mix of colour to match each individual skin tone. This is then placed on the skin by hand and shown to the client before I commence each procedure.

How long will my look last?

Permanent cosmetic enhancement can last for many years & is dependent on many variables.  Softer neutral enhancements tend to fade faster normally requiring a colour boost every 12 months to maintain their fresh appearance. Darker, stronger looks mean often more pigment has been infused into the skin, meaning results can last longer. Following the Aftercare Advice that is given will ensure you get the best out of your treatment.

What will I look like immediately after my procedure?

The colour will appear a darker shade than the desired result for up to 1 week after treatment and mild redness and swelling may be apparent for up to a few days, but generally subsides within 24 hours.
