What is permanent makeup?
Also known as micro-pigmentation and cosmetic tattooing, permanent makeup is an advanced form of tattooing in which medical grade pigments are infused into the dermal layer of the skin in order to create a shadow of colour that mimics perfectly applied make-up in soft natural tones of colour.
Does it hurt?
We use fantastic topical numbing products to ensure the treatment is as pain free as possible, with most clients experiencing very little discomfort.
What does it cost?
Except for beauty spots individual procedures cost between $420 and $930. Contact us to find out how permanent makeup will benefit your specific situation. An initial consultation where all your questions will be answered is available. The cost of a consultation is $60, which is deductible off your treatment price if the procedure is undertaken. All new procedures require an adjustment visit 6-8 weeks after your initial procedure, at a cost of $100 per procedure. A non-refundable deposit of $150 is required on booking.
How long does it take?
Most procedures take between ninety minutes to two hours. We will advise you of the exact time it will take during your initial consultation.
How long do permanent cosmetics last?
With the correct aftercare, permanent cosmetics last an average of two to five years, depending on various factors such as your skin type, sun exposure and skincare products and services. Light or very natural coloured hair strokes will only last one to two years.
Do I need to do anything before my treatment?
On the day of your procedure wear your normal makeup and bring your lip or brow pencils. Come as you normally present yourself to the world. Advise your artist of any medical conditions and medications you think may affect your treatment i.e. blood thinners or a cold sore sufferer.
What happens after my treatment?
Initially the colour of your treatment looks a lot darker than you expect. This is perfectly normal immediately following a treatment and usually last for about five days. Unless specifically requested a darker colour, by the end of eight weeks your permanent cosmetics will have settled down into a soft muted colour. The treatment area may feel a little tender for a few days; swelling is minimal and usually disappears within 24 hours.
