Frequently Asked Questions
What Exactly is Semi-Permanent Make-up?
Semi-Permanent makeup is the art and science of implanting colour into your skin. It is putting the right colour in the right place so you can look better naturally. The latest digital technology allows colour to be placed in the layer of skin known as the dermis. Because the outermost layer of skin, the epidermis, is always shedding and renewing itself, you are looking at the colour through a thin veil of skin. When your procedure is completed, the colour will appear darker than the final result. This is because the colour is in BOTH the epidermis and the dermis. The colour in the top layer will flake offer during the healing process.
Is the procedure painful?
Topical anaesthetics are used to minimise discomfort.
Do I have a choice of colours?
Definitely! There is a wide spectrum of colours that you may choose from.
What is involved in recovery?
There will be slight swelling and redness in the skin, which will subside quickly. You may resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Complete healing takes one to six weeks while the pigmentation matures and reaches its final colour.
