For anyone with thinning or over plucked brows, alopecia, anyone who has undergone chemotherapy or anyone who wants smudge-free make up all day, every day!
Semi-Permanent make up, also known as micropigmentation, is a revolutionary method of inserting small amounts of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin in order to enhance your facial features.
For eyebrows - after a topical anaestetic is applied and consultation completed I draw on an eyebrow shape which you are happy with. Using a specialist cosmetic & medical tattooing machine, I gently apply pigment to the skin using very fine needles in the form of a fully retractable, disposable cartridge. The treatment may feel ticklish or scratchy, like someone is running a toothbrush along your skin. I use a topical anaesthetic throughout the procedure for your maximum comfort. The process is normally complete within two hours, but may vary from person to person depending on your individual requirements. Immediately after your treatment the area will look darker but his will start to fade and soften after 5-7 days. The true healed colour will show in 3-4 weeks. You will be given aftercare instructions, which you must adhere to in order to obtain the best results - like a regular tattoo, this involves keeping the area dry and not picking at it! (I usually err on the side of caution at the first appointment, particularly if you are new to SPMU, so normally choose a lighter colour so that we can see how it heals in your skin. We can always go darker at your top up).
A second appointment is needed 4-8 weeks after your first treatment. As the area heals, some parts may not hold as well as others and you may have a few areas that need more colour or your base skin tone may change the pigment colour. This is completely normal as everyone heals differently. Whatever the case, I encourage you to come back for your second session so that we can make any amendments.
How long does it last?
The pigments can remain in your skin indefinitely but as the pigments fade over time you may require further follow-up treatments every 12-18 months to keep the make-up looking fresh. The darker the colour, the longer it will last. i.e. black eyeliner can last several years without the need for an annual colour boost.
What are the pigments made from?
These are made from dry, insoluble minerals which have been pulverised and formulated with iron oxide - a safe ingredient for the skin.
Please be assured that I am using only the highest quality pharmaceutical grade pigments with a state of the art digital micropigmentation machine as used within the medical industry.
