How it works
This technique is also referred to as micro-pigmentation which is a cosmetic semi-permanent tattoo. During the application of semi-permanent makeup, the dense pigment is implanted into the upper dermal layer of the skin using advanced technology, specifically designed for the sensitive areas of the face. Getting tired of pencilling in your eyebrows, eyeliner, lipstick/liner every day? These treatments are perfect for you.
What to expect
At Norwich Face & Body Clinic we take time to listen to your individual needs, enabling us to provide the best treatment for long-lasting results. During the initial complimentary consultation, a treatment plan is devised, complete with a lengthy discussion regarding the treatment as well as pre and post-care. A patch test is completed at this visit to ensure no allergies to the topical anaesthetic or pigments. This is required 48 before the commencing of treatment.
When we see you for your initial appointment, we again discuss your expectations. We will then create a template/outline to ensure we are both happy with the style and design before starting the process. The topical anaesthetic is then applied to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. In most cases a pigment enhancement/redefine appointment is required 6-8 weeks after the first appointment to help build and layer the pigment, this is a complementary pigment enhancement/redefine which is included in the price.

The duration of semi-permanent makeup varies from person to person. We would generally expect it to last between 8-24 months. This will depend on many factors such as skin type, age, lifestyle, activity etc.
Your first appointment will be a 15-minute complimentary consultation. The second visit at which the treatment commences will be between 2 and 2.5 hours. A follow-up review or pigment enhancement/redefine is then required 6-8 weeks later; this will be discussed at the second visit.
We use two types of topical anaesthetic. One before the procedure and one during the procedure, if needed, so it is pain-free.
You can still wear makeup on top of the semi-permanent makeup, but you must leave the area to heal first. This will all be discussed during your complimentary consultation appointment.
No, microblading is when a hand tool is used to cut the skin, and ink is rubbed in. Semi-Permanent Makeup/Micropigmentation uses an electrical current and a needle, which implants the pigment slightly deeper into the skin. It is also said to last longer and hold the pigment better than microblading.
From the first appointment, it takes 6-10 weeks for the area to heal due to the natural healing process. During this time, the area may look slightly darker in colour and dry which is normal. The second appointment (pigment enhancement/redefine) is between 6-10 weeks in which case we would advise for the best results to allow 3-4 months after having the semi-permanent makeup. Full aftercare will be given in detail during the complimentary consultation.
Yes, we use three different pigment brands to ensure we have a full range of colours to suit every skin tone, brows, lips and eyes.
Yes, it is safe. The highest standards of hygiene are met and the use of a state-of-the-art digital technology system excludes any risks of contra-infection. The pigments are non-allergenic, dermatologically safe and meet strict European medical standards.
By listening closely and creating a template in conventional makeup before creating your enhancement, we make sure you will get the precise result you expect before we start the procedure.
We discuss all possible options during your complimentary consultation. We also create a template/outline of the eyebrows to allow us to discuss the style and design before commencing the treatment.
The eyebrow template/outline is a guideline for us to follow during your treatment. This also helps to confirm you are 100% happy before starting the procedure.
No, we will work with the natural brow line and angles of your face to ensure we achieve the absolute best result.
Expect your brows to look darker in colour immediately after the appointment. This will soften in 7-14 days. There can be some slight swelling straight after treatment, but this settles very quickly. Full aftercare along with day-to-day steps on healing will be given at the complimentary consultation.
Yes, generally 8 out of 10 people will need a second pigment enhancement visit 6-8 week later.
During the healing period, you may lose some colour/pigment from one or both brows leaving a faded or patchy appearance, hence the advised pigment enhancement/redefine 6-10 week later.
We supply all clients with all aftercare instructions and ointments.
We provide a very thorough and detailed aftercare sheet both explained verbally and given in a written form at the complimentary consultation appointment.
As tempting as it may be, do not pull off the scabs as this will damage the skin and remove the pigment.
Sun can affect the makeup, to ensure longevity, use sun creams with an SPF 30-50 to prevent the pigment from fading.
The needle, caps, hats, gloves, etc are all single-use items. Treatment areas are always cleaned thoroughly before and after each client.
