Is permanent makeup suitable for everyone?
Providing that there are no medical contra-indications, anyone over the age of 18 can have permanent make up. Before your treatment date you will receive medical forms to complete. A patch test is also required to ensure there are no adverse reactions to the pigment and anaesthetic used during the treatment. I ensure a full consultation is always carried out before the treatments begins.


Is the treatment really permanent?

The pigment used is designed to break down in the skin over time. Permanent Cosmetic treatments can last several years, but this is dependent on skin tone, skin type, sun exposure, lifestyle and medication. With this in mind, a colour boost appointment is recommended around 12-18 months after your initial treatment.

How long will the treatment take?
Please allow at least 2 hours for your permanent cosmetic treatment. Although this can often be much less, I don't like my clients or myself to feel rushed or under pressure to finish for a certain time. 

Do I need a patch test?

Yes, a patch test is required at least 48 hours before any treatments can be carried out. You will not be able to go ahead with your treatment if you do not complete a patch test. 

Is a deposit required to book an appointment?

Yes, a £75 non-refundable deposit is required to book an appointment. This can be paid via bank transfer at the time of booking and is deducted from the cost of your treatment. The balance is then payable on the day of your appointment and can be paid via cash or bank transfer.

Am I able to pay in instalments?

Yes, you can choose to pay for your PMU treatment in instalments. The instalment option requires a £75 non-refundable deposit in order to book your appointment. The remaining balance is then split into two equal payments - the first payment is due on the day of your appointment and the final payment is due at the 6-8 week touch-up appointment. The deposit payment can be paid via bank transfer at the time of booking and the further 2 instalment payments can be paid via cash or bank transfer.

Pre-Treatment Advice:

  • Avoid alcohol, blood thinning medications (like aspirin/ibuprofen) and caffeine for 24 hours prior to your treatment. This will minimise sensitivity and swelling. 

  • Avoid sunbathing, sun-beds and fake tan for 2 weeks prior to your treatment. This will allow for the correct pigment colour to be chosen for your natural skin tone. 

  • Avoid exercising and heavy sweating on the day of your procedure, as increased body heat will cause your pores to expand and the pigment will not settle/heal as efficiently. 

  • Wash your hair either the night before or on the day of your appointment, as you will need to keep your brows relatively dry for 2 weeks after your treatment. 

  • Botox/anti-wrinkle injections should be performed 4 weeks prior to your treatment.

  • Do not tint your eyebrows within 2 weeks prior to your appointment. 



Aftercare Advice:

Aftercare is key to the healing of your permanent makeup and must be strictly followed.

Immediately after the treatment, you may notice whiteness or blanching around the area. This is normal and should subside within a few hours. You may get some swelling, this is also normal and should subside within a couple of days. In some cases, there may be slight bruising which should last no more than a week. Remember, your colour will be darker and more prominent for the first 7 days. 

As soon as your procedure is finished, your body will start to heal. The skin will close and you may see a thin crust which will protect the area whilst the skin heals. Once the crust comes off, the pigment will be revealed in a lighter form than the initially implanted colour. The colour will continue to change and develop until 4-6 weeks. Please be aware that you may notice areas of lighter colour or no colour at all. This is a very normal part of the healing process and why a touch-up appointment is recommended around 6-8 weeks after your initial treatment. 

  • It is important that you keep your brows dry for 14 days after the procedure. Please avoid washing your hair for the first 3 days. 

  • You will be given aftercare balm to take home with you. After 48 hours, you can apply a small amount (rice grain sized) of the balm to your eyebrows, using a clean, dry cotton bud. This can be done once or twice a day for 10 days. 

  • Avoid any saunas/swimming/heavy exercise until the area has completely healed. 

  • Avoid direct sun exposure and sun-beds for 14 days. After this time, you must apply a high SPF to your brows, as this will protect them and prevent fading from UV rays. It is recommended that you wear SPF on your face every day.

  • Do not apply makeup on or around the eyebrow area for 14 days. 

  • Avoid anti-ageing products which contain Retin-A, retinols, glycolic acid etc. Never put them directly on your eyebrows and DO NOT use them for at least 30 days after the treatment. 

  • Do not pick or scratch your treatment area. As your brows heal, they may become dry, itchy and flaky. Never attempt to remove any flaking skin from your eyebrows, as this will result in uneven healing.
