Frequently Asked Questions

Your safety is our concern

- What's the difference between traditional tattooing and permanent makeup?

In traditional tattooing pigment is added to the third layer of skin whereas in permanent makeup the pigment is added to the second layer(known as dermis) creating a soft blend to the tattooed area.

- Is the procedure painful?

Only the highest grade topical anesthetics are used and combined with modern techniques, discomfort is minimal if any at all.

- Do I have a choice of colours?

There is a wide spectrum of colours that you may choose from.

- Do I have a choice in the placement of pigments?

Only after consultation will any procedure be performed. You will be fully aware during the procedure, instructing the technician where you wish the implants to be located.

- 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 up to 6 weeks while the pigmentation matures and reaches its final colour.

- Will my tattooed area change colour or fade?

It is natural for permanent makeup to fade a little over a number of years. The high quality and iron oxide free pigments used, maintain true to colour even after years of wear with no pink or blue discolouration.

Eyebrows

Eyebrows frame the eyes. They give the illusion of larger, brighter eyes or can make them look small and beady. The correct shape is determined before any procedure by looking at the face as a whole to enhance the eyes. Soft shading can be done on those who already have hair or for those who have overplucked/minimal hair, hairstrokes can be created for a more natural look. Those wanting dressed dramatic eyes - a solid look can be applied.

Scar Camouflage

All camouflage procedures are experimental in nature. Flesh colours vary greatly due to racial origin, complexion characteristics, area of the body and of course the health of the skin but with time the desired effect can be achieved.

Lips

Lip line, line and blend or full lips can be applied. Your lips are a sensuous feature on your face and therefore having defined and fuller looking lips is ideal. You can choose from natural looking shades or vibrant colours.
