Who is Semi Permanent Makeup for?

The treatments are ideal for people with active lifestyles (or people who don't have time to re-apply their makeup all the time), people who have allergies to conventional makeup, or people who would like to enhance their features in a very subtle, natural way. Take a look at the Treatments section for more information. 

What is semi permanent makeup?

Getting permanent cosmetics is a procedure of introducing quality coloured pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. Patients are given topical anaesthetic to numb the skin and, after the anaesthetic takes effect, the therapy can begin. The overall procedure usually takes about one to two hours.

The technique relies on a highly-trained practitioner's skilled use of precision needles and advanced skin pigments to colour the upper layer of the skin (the dermis). These pigments are "permanent" compared with normal cosmetics - but semi-permanent in that, as the skin gradually replaces itself, they'll fade over several years. 

Does Semi Permanent make-up hurt?

For most people it isn't a problem. For others it can be a little uncomfortable depending on the individual's pain threshold, generally it is understood to be no more painful than having your eyebrows tweezed. However anaesthetic creams are applied prior and throughout treatment to keep any discomfort to a minimum.
