||What is semi-permanent makeup?
Also known as Micropigmentation, this cosmetic enhancement
procedure uses advanced techniques to implant ‘hypoallergenic’ pigments into the ‘shallow’ dermal
layer of the skin.
||Health and Safety?
The digital technology system used in these procedures is state
of the art. The pigment delivery system is recognised as one of the
safest on the market
today. The applicators used during the procedure are sterile, individually
packaged and intended for ‘one time’ use only, the disposal of
which is always shown to the client at the end of ‘each’ treatment.
The stringent clinical environment ensures that all equipment is covered by
protective coverings which are also disposed of at the end of each treatment
thus eliminating risk of cross-contamination.
||How is the procedure carried out?
A minimum of 24 hours prior to the treatment commencing, a
test’ is performed by placing a tiny amount of pigment into the skin
usually in the hairline behind the ear, this is to ensure there is no allergy
to the pigment.
On the day of treatment a thorough consultation will be conducted
which will include an assessment of your skin colour and face shape. Suggestions
offered regarding the enhancement of your natural beauty, and once you are
happy with the colour effect chosen, a design is created to ensure you are
completely happy with the shape before the procedure commences. Discussing
in detail your desired outcomes will ensure the unique look created will be
exactly as you desire. Essential to the procedure is the follow up or ‘top-up’ treatment
carried out 4-6 weeks later enabling the fine tuning of colour density and
making sure the pigments are retained uniformly.
||How long does the treatment take?
Actual procedure times vary between 30 minutes upwards per area. Usually
1 hour 15 mins is allocated for the complete treatment as described above.
||What will I look like after the procedure?
Immediately after and for the first few days the colour intensity will
appear significantly darker and more intense but will subsequently lighten.
and swelling may be apparent for the first couple of days, however normal activity
can be resumed immediately following the procedure.
||How long will it last?
Enhancements can last anything from 1 – 5 years dependant on factors
such as age, exposure to U.V. and swimming. Usually clients who wish to maintain
the colour intensity of their enhancement will return every 12-18 months for
a ‘refresher’ treatment. These treatments take much less time to
complete, the price of which is therefore reflected accordingly.
||How does the procedure feel?
Topical anaesthetics (eg creams) are used to minimise discomfort.
||How much does it cost?
A price list can be sent out to you on request and is explained at
The treatment cost is comparable to botox, restylane, perlane and
IPL treatments and varies depending on the area treated. This is

your semi-permanent makeup specialist. The price reflects the expertise
aquired by the therapist to carry out such procedures.
