What is Permanent Make Up?

Permanent Make up is a form of cosmetic tattooing, placing pigment into the upper dermal layer of the skin using a cosmetic machine. With treatments being offered to the eyebrow, eye and lip area it is a fantastic way to enhance facial features. All treatments are carried out in two stages, this will be two separate treatments on two separate days with a minimum of 4-6 weeks between each.

The consultation..

I offer a consultation free of charge to all clients interested in finding out more about Permanent Make Up. This gives clients a chance to answer any questions you may have and it also gives me as a technician the chance to recommend the best treatment plan for your desired results. All clients will be skin tested no less then 48 hours before, this can either be done during the consultation or posted. Next step is to get you booked in.


On the day of the treatment there will be a medical form to fill out. All treatments are individual to each client and will be measured and drawn on to ensure the client is happy. At this stage we will discuss colour options, it is important to understand during the healing process your Permanent Make Up can fade by up to 60%. Once both the client and I are happy with the drawing and colour choice we will then move on to tattooing stage. Having already spoken about what you want to achieve during out consultation we will have worked out if it is better to use a hair stroke method, a shaded method or an ombre method. For each appointment I ask my clients to allow 2h-2h30m for each appointment. 


All aftercare is explained in detail post treatment and you will walk away with written aftercare also. It is very simple and easy to follow, a vitamin ointment will be provided for you to aid with the healing process which takes around 4-6 weeks. Permanent Make Up will fade over time and top ups would be recommended on average between 12-18 months. This is usually a one off treatment however the scan vary depending on the individuals skin, lifestyle and health.
