Will it hurt?
Each client is different but usually there is little to no discomfort felt during a procedure. We use anaesthetic to numb the area before the procedure starts and then maintain application of anaesthetic to the area during the procedure to maintain comfort.
How long will it take to heal?
Healing time is minimal, usually 4-10 days for Permanent Make Up. A small percentage of people have some swelling and tenderness but this is hardly noticeable. Most people walk out the door and back to their life with no interruptions. Pigments will initially be stronger and will soften over the next few weeks. We will provide you with a take home cream to apply to the area to reduce peeling.
How long will my procedure last?
The degree of permanency depends on the client. In general due to the natural aging of the pigments, environmental factors and the client’s unique chemistry the colour will need refreshing from time to time.
We recommend a yearly visit to maintain Permanent Make Up procedures.
How much does it cost?
All procedures include a free of charge consultation before we commence. At this time we will discuss the look you are after, the procedure, the aftercare and the cost. Compared to other regular beauty treatments, permanent make up is not expensive.
Can I have permanent eyeliner if I wear contact lenses?
Absolutely. You will find it convenient to not have to apply your eyeliner everyday and you will know that it will always look perfect. Make sure you bring your glasses so you can take your contacts out for the procedure.
I suffer from cold sores, can I still have a lip procedure?
If you have ever had a cold sore, even if it was a long time ago, the virus will still be in your system so it is important that you follow these steps. Take a course of Lysine tablets at least one week prior to, and after the procedure. Zovirax cream can also be applied to the lip area prior to and after the procedure. This will decrease your chances of getting a cold sore.
Why do I need a follow up appointment?
A Follow up is a colour enhancement. This ensures that your Permanent Make Up looks exactly how you expected it to. With Permanent Make up we like to commence lightly with the colour and see how your body processes it. During the follow up we can make any colour or shape adjustments that you require. It also ensures your make up lasts longer. Most procedures need at least 1 follow up with Lip procedures sometimes needing 2-3.

How do I prepare for cosmetic make up?
Keep in mind this is not surgery. So you can eat or drink anything you want prior to your procedure. Clean eyes without contact lenses for eyeliner and a clean face without make up for eyebrows and lips. It is okay if you wear your moisturizer. You can drive yourself to and from any procedure. If you have a career, you can return to work right after we’re done or take the rest of the day off. If you are feeling nervous take a paracetamol to help you relax. It’s up to you.
