You have to be off any Acne medication for at least 12 months.
If you suffer from coldsores you must ask your Doctor for a prescription of Aciclovir tablets prior to your appointment. If you are unable to get them, with enough notice, we may be able to arrange a private prescription (charges will apply).
If your lips are excessively dry or chapped we will not be able to carry out your treatment – please make sure you exfoliate and balm your lips for at least a week before your appointment.
You can’t have eyeliner if you have Glaucoma as the pressure of the procedure can be damaging.
Any use of lash enhancing serums must be stopped no less than 4 weeks before your liner appointment.
Lash extensions must be removed before any liner appointments.

Are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Have very dark skin as there is a risk of pale spots (hypopigmentation) or post inflammatory dark spots (hyperpigmentation), especially if the carbon crusts are picked or scratched.
How Do I Book In?
Once we have found a suitable appointment date a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of £90 is paid to secure your appointment. This deposit is deducted from the final price.
Consultation forms are posted out with your skin tests (please do these asap and let us know if there are any problems they must be applied a minimum of 48 hrs before treatment); forms must be read thoroughly, completed and brought with you to your consultation. You will also be given a pre read form with all information regarding do’s and dont’s before your procedure.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS THOROUGHLY AS IT COULD MEAN POSTPONING YOUR APPOINTMENT AND LOSING YOUR DEPOSIT!
What If I Already Have PMU?
If you already have semi permanent makeup on the area we MUST SEE PHOTOS before we can book you in. Unfortunately we can not guarantee that we will be able to work with existing PMU without removal.
What Happens On The Day – PMU?
I draw the design in makeup so you get an idea of shape and form. I don’t use stencils, I work with your own natural bone structure. Everyone is different and one eyebrow/lip/liner shape does not suit all.
I take a photo of you and your design and work with the symmetry of your face making sure that when you are in a relaxed state your makeup is as even as possible. Everything is a bespoke design to you.
I use a Sterile micro-pigmentation handset/tool and disposable blades/needles during your procedure.
I use EU Regulated Permanent Makeup high quality pigments, specially manufactured for micropigmentation.
How long does it last?
Depending on how well you look after your new semi permanent enhancement, your skin type and the amount of uv exposure, brows should last for between 12-24 months; lips and liner 18-24 months.
A colour boost will be required after this time, to keep them looking on point; this is priced accordingly.
Does it Hurt?
No, not really. On a scale of 1-10, most clients report a discomfort of about a 3.
All procedures, other than microblading are pre-numbed.
At the beginning of your treatment you will feel a scratching feeling while I am doing my first pass and marking the shape and design. A numbing cream is then applied which is absorbed into the skin within a few seconds. Once the cream is absorbed very little feeling remains.
PMU Aftercare: Touch Ups
You will need to return for your perfecting session 6-12 weeks after treatment. To avoid additional charges please give a minimum of 48 hours for any cancelled retouch appointments. PLEASE NOTE – WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO FIND ANOTHER RETOUCH APPOINTMENT WITHIN 12 WEEKS IF YOU CANCEL – IF WE CAN NOT FIND ANOTHER APPOINTMENT AND YOUR RETOUCH IS OVER 12 WEEKS A £90 CHARGE WILL APPLY.
Everyone’s skin heals differently and most clients develop patchy areas or the appearance of fading after the first treatment. It is important to understand that this is a two part process and the second, perfecting session will complete the procedure. PLEASE BE PATIENT AND DON’T PANIC!
PMU Aftercare: Important Info
Follow your aftercare that will be given to you. Keeping your brows/eyeliner dry for TWO WEEKS IS ESSENTIAL.
Always follow the advice given after your procedure. 50% of your results are my skill, 50% is your body and skin and how you look after them. One can not work without the other.
Important Note: Avoid Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline during your healing period. Anything with a Petroleum or Vaseline base can cause a reaction and cause crusting and scabbing. We expect to see a little flaking but not scabbing. Vaseline/Petroleum can also cause sweating as the skin is not able to breathe.
PMU Aftercare during the healing period:
You will be given an aftercare sheet with guidance on how to care for your PMU during the initial healing period, this includes:
No sun beds
No sweating in the gym
No makeup on the area
No anti ageing creams on the brow area
Do not pick scabs if any appear
Do not itch the area or pull scabs away
Leave the area alone and let them heal totally for at least 10 days
n.b. Lip healing (VERY EASY) requires you to use the balm provided constantly until the flaking stops, usually 5-6 days
PLASMA SIDE EFFECTS AND DOWNTIME
Following treatment, the area will swell temporarily, this settles in 48-72 hours and may require use of oral anti-inflammatory tablets.
The carbon crust takes 4-10 days to disappear. It is important not to scratch, pick or rub the area treated as a pinkish skin discoloration or hypo/hyperpigmentation could persist.
You can use special foundation which can be applied on the treated area for one month to aid the healing process.
Things To Remember When Having Semipermanent Makeup!!!
1. Semipermanent makeup is healed in the skin, it is not makeup. It’s longevity will be affected by uv rays, medication, hormone treatments, skin type, skincare routine, use of harsh exfoliant products/creams.
2. IT ISN’T MAINTENANCE FREE!!! You won’t need to apply makeup everyday to create a brow shape, but if your brow/ facial hair is really fair it may mask your new enhancement. Brow maintenance i.e. waxing and tinting is essential to keep your brows looking fresh.
3. Brows should not need colour boosting for at least 12 months!! They will fade as the months go on as it is semipermanent, but usually they only need an HD brow or wax and tint to get WOW #browsonpoint again. I will not go back into your skin unnecessarily when this is all you really need.
It may be necessary to colour boost more frequently if your have veru oily skin or if no hair is present. If you have little/no brow hair your semipermanent makeup is more exposed to uv rays. Try and make it routine to use a sunblock through your brow especially in summer to protect your enhancement.
