FAQ's About Permanent Makeup
Permanent makeup gives you the look of professionally applied makeup everyday, with natural-looking results that can be as subtle or as dramatic as you want. The effect is achieved by hypo-allergenic specialist pigments into the dermal layer of your skin. The results fade gradually over 2-3 years, with a “colour boost” recommended around 12-18 months after the initial application – to maintain a fresh look.
Why have Permanent Makeup?
Naturally, everyone wants to look their best at all times, this gives you this everyday! Waking up with perfectly shaped brows, defined eyes and beautiful lips without having to apply makeup, no smudging either.
What if I have specific needs?
You may have specific requirements for semi-permanent makeup such as scars, alopecia, chemotherapy, vitiligo, loss of sight or other health related concerns. Semi-permanent makeup is an extremely beneficial and very successful for these types of medical concerns.
Is Permanent Makeup safe?
We use the highest quality sterile needles, which are disposed of immediately after the treatment is completed. We follow a code of practice that ensures a safe treatment. We choose to work only with top quality pigments that meet European medical standards.
Does it hurt?
We want you to be relaxed during the treatment and in as little discomfort as possible, so we use anaesthetic before and during the treatment.
How long will it take to recover?
Normally the colour will be darker for the first few days. You may experience light to moderate swelling, especially with eyeliner and lip procedures. After the initial few days, the skin will heal and will begin to gently flake off and the treated area will lighten. It may be too light for you, so recommend to have top up around 4-6 weeks after to achieve the best results for you, to refine and perfect.
How long does Permanent makeup last?
It lasts for many years but we recommend having a colour boost around 12 months after the initial treatment allowing you to maintain a fresh look. All treatments are carried out in our luxurious salon in Ashford Kent.
