Frequently Asked Questions
Will it look natural?
Is it permanent?
In my opinion, yes. Micro-pigmentation (permanent make up) is designed to fade. However, a residue of pigment will always be present in the skin indefinitely and a faint residue will be left which is why I choose to use the phrase “permanent” as opposed to “semi permanent” to describe my procedures. “Semi permanent” could be misleading as it could easily signify that your skin will return to the state it was prior to treatment, and that just won’t happen. It is a tattoo and pigment is implanted into the skin and that applies to all areas of the face and body. With this is mind, it is crucial that you make an informed decision with all the facts up front. I will expand more on this at your consultation if needed.
What should I expect after the treatment and are there any side effects?
There are very few, extremely slight side effects. Immediately after treatment the colour appears a little darker than your chosen shade. Some clients may experience slight swelling and redness of the area immediately after treatment too but this usually subsides within a few hours. If you have your brows tattooed then after about 3 days your colour will gradually appear darker as the area heals. By about day 5, as the treated area is beginning to heal, itching may occur. At about 7-10 days the body will start to naturally expel any scabs so your brows will appear messy & flaky at this point – it is advisable to avoid any special social occasions throughout the healing process days 5 – 14) to be on the safe side. After 10 days continued exfoliation takes place and at this stage the colour will probably appear lighter than you want it to be. As further healing and exfoliation occurs over the 6 weeks your brow colour will re appear. Some patchy areas may be visible, depending on how your body has accepted the treatment and how well you have managed your aftercare. For Lips & Eyeliner treatments you will experience some minimal swelling on the day of treatment and possibly the next day. The are will be surface healed in 5 days so very little downtime. Your 2nd appointment is there to address any tiny tweaks; however, this second appointment is not always needed.
How long does it take?
Why permanent makeup?
Why do permanent makeup prices differ?
Does it hurt?
How long does it last?
This varies but as a general guide expect brows to last anywhere between 9 months – 2+ years, lips 2+ years & eyeliner 2+ years but these all vary between each individual depending on your skin type, how you look after your enhancement, environmental factors, health, sun exposure, sun bed use, skin creams… These and many more can all play a part in premature fading and some areas (such as health) are out of your hands. As there are so many variables to this question and everyone is individual and unique in their lifestyles, it’s hard to give a definitive answer.
What if I have a procedure and then I hate it?
Are the pigments and materials used safe?
What colours should I choose?
What factors will affect permanent make-up?
There are a few variables here but a few include; the sun / sunbeds. The sun fades pigment much faster so a minimum SPF50 sun block is recommended daily to prolong your enhancement (available in clinic), also on application sun exposure will result in poor implantation. The choice of colour, a lighter colour will fade faster than a darker colour. Skin care, some creams contain ingredients that exfoliate the skin, this will speed up the fading process, also Retinol & chemical peels will have a big impact on whether the pigment can be implanted satisfactorily. Medication can also affect the implantation and retention of pigment and this can be discussed at your consultation should it be necessary.
