Always look good and fresh with Semi Permanent Make-up

For eyebrows, eyeliner and lips, eliminate the chore of having to apply, re-apply and remove on a daily basis

An introduction to Semi-Permanent Make-up

Semi-permanent make-up is a revolutionary method of applying micro-insertions of the natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. This state of the art technique is medically proven and specifically designed to be completely safe. Intra-dermal pigmentation is used for a variety of permanent cosmetic enhancements such as permanent eyebrows, eyeliner, lip liner, full lip and for alopecia patients.

With semi-permanent make-up you eliminate the chore of having to apply, reapply and remove make-up every day and it will always look professionally applied. Imagine the possibilities; wake up looking good, step out of the shower, the pool or gym confident that your eyebrows, eyeliner and lip line are perfectly in place.

How would I know what colour to choose?

Beginning with a variety of basic pigment shades, virtually any colour can be mixed to complement your natural skin tones. We work in conjunction with you to discuss your preferences/ideas and make suggestions to help to perfect your look, custom designing your semi-permanent make-up with colours that will suit you best.

What if styles change?

We would use colours that are custom blended to complement your skin tone, eye and hair colours to give a soft and natural appearance. However the colours can be changed at any time by blending another colour over the original.

Is it expensive?

Full price list is available by contacting us, but you should look at the long term cost. It costs no more than a years cosmetics bill, but it is little compared to 3-5 years of daily make-up expense, it doesn't run or wash off and it's a great time saver. It's worth every penny to make the most of your natural beauty all the time.

Does it look natural?

Very natural - your features look more defined; your friends will never know the difference in you, unless you told them.

How long will it last?

This varies with each individual person, though the expectation is between 3-5 years and in some cases could be longer.

Does it hurt?

There is usually very minimal discomfort, we can use topical anaesthetics to greatly reduce any minor discomfort and promote relaxation. Majority of clients feel absolutely nothing except a prickly sensation in the area being treated.

Is there a chance of infection?

Safety is our priority, at all times we adhere to the strictest sterilisation procedures. Only new sterile disposable needles which are opened in your presence are used for your complete safety.

How long does it take to heal?

Between four to seven days - depending on the procedure that you have done.

What is the healing period like?

On the second day after the procedure, a light crust will form which is dry to the touch, this will fall off in a few days. During this time the pigment area may look darker than what you decided upon. Once the crust flakes off it is common for the colour to lighten by up to 30%.

How soon can I go out?

Immediately. The colour may appear a little darker than usual in the first few days. The crusting is only slightly visible, but usually never really noticeable. A detailed portfolio of post treatments is also available at the clinic.
