Does permanent make-up hurt?

I use topical anaesthetics throughout the treatment to numb the area to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during the treatment and that any discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum.

Is permanent makeup suitable for everyone?

Providing that there are no medical contraindications anyone over the age of 18 can have permanent make up. Before your treatment date you will receive medical forms to complete. A patch test is also required to ensure there are no adverse reactions to the pigment and anaesthetic used during the treatment. I ensure a full consultation is always carried out before the treatments begins.

Is permanent make up PERMANENT?

The pigment used is designed to breakdown in the skin over time. The treatment can last several years, but this is dependent on skin tone, skin type, sun exposure, lifestyle and medication. With this in mind, I recommend an colourboost 12-18 months after your initial treatment.

How long does the treatment take?

Treatments vary in length. From start to finish I recommend 120 minutes is set aside for new clients. A colourboost treatment normally takes around 90 minutes – 120 minutes.

Timings are as follows:

  • pre-numbing of the area: 20 minutes
  • template design with client approval: 20 minutes
  • treatment time: 60 minutes.

Please always ensure you allow enough time for your treatment and aim to arrive 10 minutes earlier.

What can I expect BEFORE the treatment?

I will ensure you are fully prepared for your treatment by supplying pre-treatment instructions, which will include advice on timings of tinting, waxing etc. prior to treatment.  The pre-treatment advice and aftercare instructions will be included in your welcome pack/sensitivity test kit on booking your treatment.

What can I expect AFTER the treatment?

Following your treatment you may experience some pinkness of the skin and mild swelling. Around Day 4 there may be some gentle exfoliation of the skin. This reaction can be minimised by following the aftercare advice and applying the healing ointment. Immediately after the treatment the pigment will appear darker due to the pigment oxidising in the skin.

Once the healing process takes place the treated area will lighten in colour by up to 60%. I recommend all clients to return for the complimentary refill appointment 6 weeks after the initial treatment, which allows me to fine tune your permanent make up results.
