What is semi permanent makeup?
Semi permanent makeup, also known as micro pigmentation, involves inserting small amounts of pigment into the skin. Pigment is inserted into the top layer of skin where the cells rejuvenate, which is why the makeup fades over time and needs topping up.
The difference between semi permanent makeup and tattooing is the depth of penetration of the pigment. For tattoos, the ink goes deep into the hypodermic level, whereas semi permanent makeup only penetrates into the dermis. Typically, semi permanent makeup technicians refer to the colour as pigment, whereas tattooists call it ink.
Do I have to top it up?
In order to keep your procedure looking fresh, we recommend that your colour is refreshed from anytime from 6 months onwards, and continue with maintenance on a regular basis. We offer a reduced top-up rate for this procedure, which will be discussed at your initial consultation.
How are semi permanent eyebrows created?
Prior to any semi permanent eyebrow treatment, you will first have a consultation to discuss the treatment, answer any questions you may have, and decide on the shape and colour of your desired brows. Once you are happy, an appointment will be booked to create your semi permanent eyebrows.
Your eyebrows will be created using cosmetic tattooing pigments, where a thin needle inserts pigment into the top, dermal layer of the skin.
Immediately after the treatment the pigment may appear darker, however after a couple of days this will fade to the desired shade.
Does having semi permanent eyebrow treatment hurt?
Semi permanent make up is not as painful as a regular tattoo. In fact, discomfort is usually only very minimal, the majority of our clients only reporting a slight discomfort or describing a tingling sensation. Whilst some may feel a little sore afterwards, this does not last for long.
What are the pigments made of? Are they safe?
The most common ingredients in the pigments we use are: iron oxides, titanium oxides, glycerin, ethanol, alcohol and distilled water.
A patch test is performed prior to your treatment to test for any reactions. Whilst this cannot 100% guarantee you will not have a reaction at a later date, this is extremely rare.
What colour or shape is right for me?
With your preferences and Gillian’s experience, you can decide on your very own, bespoke eyebrow design.
Your face shape, skin colour, and eye shape are all taken into consideration when creating your perfect eyebrow shape and colour.
This diagram can act as a guide to help decide the right eyebrow shape for you. Gillian can work with you to discuss your ideas and come up with the perfect design tailored to your preferences.
What do I have to consider before my treatment?
Do not drink tea, coffee or alcohol or take any drugs, (unless life saving) on the day of the procedure.
We recommend you apply a topical anaesthetic cream thickly, covered with a plaster one hour prior to the treatment to minimise discomfort during the treatment. Such creams are available from any chemist or pharmacy, such as Emla or Amitop.
Is there any danger of infection?
Any instrument used in contact with the skin is disposed of after each use. This is especially important with the needle and the needle holder. All areas are sterilised, at least twice, with a specialised skin and instrument disinfectant.
How much does it cost?
Semi permanent eyebrows cost £450, which includes a consultation, one treatment session and a bespoke aftercare pack, plus a boost 6 weeks later if needed.
