Imagine going on holiday and being able to swim without your eyebrows disappearing. It can be a very time-consuming process, which can be simplified by our fabulous semi-permanent make up treatments. This technique is also referred to as micropigmentation which is a cosmetic semi-permanent tattoo. During semi-permanent makeup dense pigment is implanted into the upper dermal layer of the skin using advanced technology, specifically designed for the sensitive areas of the face.

We absolutely appreciate that everybody’s skin tone shape of face and features are different so advise on the best possible look.

When we see you for your initial appointment, we again discuss your expectations and draw up your eyebrows, eyeliner, lip blush/contour to ensure we are both happy with the style and design before starting the process.

FAQ's

Q: Does semi-permanent make up hurt when being applied?
A: Not at all – We use two types of topical anesthetic. One before the procedure and one during the procedure if needed.

Q: Can you still wear traditional make up?
A: Absolutely, you can still wear make up on top of the semi-permanent make up, but you must leave the area to heal before. This will all be discussed during your consultation appointment.

Q: Is this the same as microblading?
A: No, microblading is when a qualified therapist uses a hand tool to cut the skin, and ink is rubbed in. Semi-Permanent Make Up / 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.

Q: I have a wedding coming up soon, when should I book the treatment for?
A: 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 top up appointment is between 6-10 weeks in which case we would advise for the best results allow 3-4 months after having the semi-permanent make up. Full aftercare will be given in detail during the consultation.

Q: Do you have different colour options available?
A: Yes, we offer a wide range of colours suitable for brows, lips and eyes.
