WHAT THE FAQ
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
This varies from person to person because skin type, diet, genetics and environmental factors can all contribute to how long the pigments will be retained. For instance, sun bed use and sun exposure have a bearing on the pigment retention, but this can be prevented with proper protection.
WHAT IS SPMU?
Semi-permanent make up, also known as cosmetic tattooing, Micropigmentation and Microblading, is a form a tattoo. The pigment is implanted into the top of the dermis layer of skin, just below the basal layer.
WILL I top up OTHER PEOPLES WORK?
No. Our touch up service is only for our existing clients. If you have had your brows done elsewhere, we do not go over them until they have completely faded. Once your brows are ready to be re-done, full prices apply. We offer a saline removal treatment to help lift and remove old unwanted work.
IS IT SAFE?
We adhere to the highest standards of health and safety. You can be assured that all risks are minimised and that you are in safe hands. However, because the treatment involves implanting pigment into the skin, that means it is invasive. While this is what provides permanent cosmetics with its long-lasting benefits, there are also some risks. As with any form of tattooing, these can include allergic reaction, infection or scarring.
You will be given the best aftercare advice to follow after your treatment.

DO I NEED A CONSULTATION?
