PERMANENT MAKEUP TREATMENTS
We’ll Take Care of You
The first part of the permanent makeup process is a consultation. I like to meet you beforehand to explain in detail the process of the treatment. I will perform a patch test for the pigment and products used during the treatment and we will fill out all medical health and pre-treatment consultation forms.
On the day of your treatment we will talk together in great detail about the look you are trying to achieve and what i might recommend to you. This is very much a two-way conversation. I listen, i respond, i advise. Once we have an idea of the look you are aiming for, i will draw the brows or eyeliner on with a makeup pencil. These can be drawn on and adjusted 50 times if necessary! We will never begin the tattoo process until you are completely happy with what they are going to look like.
Using a specialist facial tattooing machine, which works at a much lower frequency than a standard tattoo machine, i will gently apply pigment to the skin using very fine needles. The sensation is that of an electric toothbrush being held against your skin – you feel the vibrations but you should not feel any discomfort. I will always work with you at this stage, giving you breaks if you need them. The process normally takes about 1-2 hours, but it varies from person to person depending on your individual requirements. Immediately after any treatments you should expect the area to look 20-30% darker than the colour you have chosen in consultation. This will start to fade after 3-4 days.
A second appointment is needed 4-12 weeks after your first treatment. This treatment is included in the price. This is usually a 60-90 minutes appointment to add more pigment to the brow area. This is because as the area is healing, some parts may not ‘hold’ as well as others and you may have a few patches that need more colour. This is completely normal and everyone heals differently. Whatever the case, I advise you always come back to clinic for your retouch.
