brows

Your brows enhance the shape of your face, giving a visual beauty and balance. Natural, sleek looking brows can be tricky to perfect and permanent make up will take the time and effort out of creating that flawless look.We have a range of options to create beautiful brows that are fuller and perfectly styled, giving symmetry and finesse all day, every day.

OMBRÉ BROWS

A perfect choice for clients who have little to no brow hair and want a soft natural fuller look; Ombre Brows are also a great choice for clients with oily or uneven skin where hair stroke techniques can’t be achieved.

The Ombre effect is created by lightly shading the brow area using a fast whip shade motions. This gives a smudged pencil brow with a translucent and sheer finish. The subtle use of shadow creates the illusion of fuller hair, imitating a complete brow which when healed will blend with the natural hair, giving your brows a super soft finish. 

MICROBLADING

Microblading is the latest buzz word in permanent make up. It is similar to micropigmentation, in that it is a form of tattooing by implanting colour into the skin but instead of being tattooed with a permanent make up machine, a fine blade tool is used to tattoo  wispy hair strokes throughout the brow.

Microblading is a good choice for clients who have some hair already and are looking to add shape and fullness to their natural brow. We match the pigment to your natural hair colour to blend the fine strokes with your brow hair to create a natural fuller look.

The microblading effect doesn’t last as long as conventional permanent make up.

HAIR STOKE 3D BROWS

Hair Stroke brows use fine strokes and shading to create the 3D effect of a fuller natural looking brow.

Colours are carefully selected and blended to create a stunning effect. This is the perfect choice if your brows are thin or sparse or you want a more youthful look.

HAIR STROKE POWDER BLUSH BROW

This technique will incorporate both some strokes through the brow and then adding a soft powder blush finish through the background of the brow. This is the brow for everyone, suitable for all skin types and clients. This technique gives you full, beautifully shaped brow for those who want hair strokes, without any gaps between them. Probably my favourite finish and look!

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR brows APPOINTMENT

You will have an in-depth consultation where we discuss your expectations and work together to choose the perfect brow colour, taking into consideration your natural brow colour, the tone and colour of your skin, hair and eyes. We will always numb the area to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.

We will draw the template whilst looking at the shape of your face and your natural brows to make sure they are drawn to best suit you as an individual and create the perfect result. We then mimick the natural brow hairs and shape to create your desired effect, giving you beautifully styled and designed brows bespoke to you.

The treatment uses the only the highest quality pharmaceutical grade pigments and quality tattoo equipment especially designed to gently infuse the colour into the skin.    We always use disposable equipment such as needles and all personal protective equipment, single use trays and disposables.

Very occasionally we will find that someone is not suitable to have permanent make up work carried out. Should this be the case at your appointment we will advise you and refund any deposits. You are under no obligation to carry through with your appointment if you feel during your consultation the treatment is not for you.

your eyes

Beautiful eyes, mean a beautiful you. Eyes are often described as the window to the soul. Create a look that you love by giving your eyes a lash definition and extra depth or a soft smoky appearance that will stay perfect without smudging, making your eyes really shine day and night.

LASH ENHANCEMENT

Lash enhancement creates the look of fuller lashes by using a fine liner through the lashes for a natural effect.

This is perfect for those who want a day to day natural fuller look to the base of the lash line.

EYE LINER

The Eyeliner treatment will give colour just above the lash line with the appearance of make-up eyeliner. This give a more solid defined look rather than a lash enhancement.

This option is perfect for those who like to wear eyeliner every day.

FULLER EYELINER WITH FLICK

Eyeliner with a flick, also known as Latino Eyeliner can give eyes the perfect defined look. This treatment can be applied with a choice of a slight colour or a fuller look. We are also able to give a soft definition smoky look to the liner whilst also creating a defined flick.

This look is not suitable for everyone, and we will discuss it fully with you during your consultation. The eyeliner will be drawn onto your eye prior to treatment for you to approve the flick and you can decide whether to continue with treatment once you have seen the effect.

PMU Frequently asked questions

What is permanent make up?

Permanent make up is the infusion of permanent make up colour pigments to the very  superficial top layer of the skin, this is why you will need regular touch up visits as the colours fade in the skin over time.

We use only the highest quality pigments, with the safest ingredients for your treatment.

How long does it last?

The treatments will last around 12-18 months before you will need to come for a booster touch up treatment where we refresh the colour and make any adjustments.

Will it hurt?

It will hurt a little, yes.  It is usually the first initial pass over the area that is the most uncomfortable part of your treatment. We use topical anaesthetic to make the treatment as comfortable as possible for you, making the treatment much more comfortable. You can take paracetamol before your visit if you would like, but we don’t think this will make much difference and you should be relatively comfortable throughout your procedure.

Will I be able to return to work afterwards?

Yes, you will look red around the area you have had tattooed. This will subside after around 1-2 hours. You are able to bring mineral make up to apply afterwards if you are returning or going to work. 

The area will look darker and more strongly defined for up to a week.

How long will it take to heal?

Your newly tattooed area will take 5- 7 days to heal and for the skin to shed leaving a lighter visible colour.  The full healing process is around 4-6 weeks depending on the area. Your touch up will be scheduled after this time. Please remember permanent make up will more than usually always require a touch up visit to fine tune your enhancement.

Can I choose the colour?

Of course! During your initial consultation we will discuss your preferences on colour, shape and placement. If you have any colours you like to wear, please bring these along with you to your appointment.

Will you show me the shape first?

We will always discuss shape and offer advice on what would best suit you. We do not offer fashion brows and we are always careful to work with the natural expression, face shape and symmetry of your face.

BROW POST-TREATMENT CARE

POST-TREATMENT CARE

Aftercare is a vital part of your treatment. Failure to follow the aftercare instructions may lead to your treatment failing to heal properly or as desired. Please ensure that you read, understand and follow the aftercare plan below. If you are unsure about any of the instructions, you must contact us as soon as possible so that we can clarify them for you.

Brows

Permanent Make Up treatments involve breaking the top layer of skin to apply colour in the lower layers beneath. Your body treats the area as it would any other wound by forming new layers of skin over the broken skin, and the four weeks following treatment are extremely important for this healing process to take place.

During this healing process, there will be a number of changes to the colour of the permanent make up before the final, expected colour appears.

At first, the permanent makeup will rise to the surface and appear a little darker than expected. As this top layer flakes off, the colour will then look extremely faded and you may be concerned that the treatment hasn’t worked properly. However; over the remainder of the 4 weeks, the colour will resurface as each layer of skin heals in turn, until your desired tone appears once the area is fully healed. You will only get the full effect of your treatment once the whole healing process has finished.

During this 4 week period, you may also experience the following symptoms:

  • Minor redness or swelling
  • Mild tenderness
  • Itchiness in the brow area
  • Dry flaking skin
  • Some scabbing or lighter crusting due to lymph coming to surface of area.

Essential Aftercare – Don’t’s

You must not sunbathe or use sun beds for at least 14 days after your treatment. If you need to go into the sun in this period, you should try to cover the brow area or use a 50+ sunblock and expose your face for as short a time as possible.

After the 14 days it is still highly recommended that you cover your brows or use 50+ sunblock on your face in the sun, and cover the brow area completely if using a sunbed. Failure to take these precautions will cause the brows to fade at a fast rate and more regular touch-ups will be needed.

For the first 14 days following treatment, you should also avoid high levels of sweat, so avoid heavy exercise and do not use a sauna or steam room during this period. Sweat produces high levels of salt, which is used in the removal of pigment from the skin, so high levels of sweat will break down and fade the colour in your treatment.

You must not pick, scratch or itch the treated area for 14 days. This can cause the colour to heal unevenly.

Do not have facials, or apply any facial products to treated area for 14 days after your treatment. After 14 days, we further recommend that you do not have any facials touch the brow area as the skin will be shedding more than it naturally does due to the healing process. This will cause the brows to fade at a faster rate than normal.

At any time following treatment, do not exfoliate the brow area as again, this will cause the treatment to fade more quickly, resulting in your needed more regular touch-up treatments.

Essential Aftercare – Do’s

You should clean the brow area by using a make-up pad or sponge moistened with cooled boiled water to gently wipe the brow. Do not pull away any of the natural crusting or use an artificial wet-wipe.

Apart from this gentle cleaning, you must keep the area dry for the first 14 days. If you do get your brows wet, pat them dry with a towel – do not rub. You may find washing your hair over the bath or going to a hairdresser to get your hair washed will help keep your brows dry.

You must also ensure that you apply the aftercare lotion provided to you as directed on days 2-14 post treatment. The aftercare lotion should be applied twice a day, preferably morning and evening. To do this, dip the tip of the cotton bud into the cream and gently smooth over one eyebrow. Use the other end of the cotton bud in the same way on your other eyebrow. Take care not to rub in the lotion as this can rub off skin before it is healed properly. We will demonstrate how to apply the lotion after your treatment.

Last but not least…

We will book a touch-up appointment with you on the day of your treatment. This is for any alterations or gaps that may need filling in once healed. If you are unable to make the touch-up appointment please contact us to rearrange. Please remember, everyone’s skin is different, therefore everyone will experience different healed results. In many cases some unevenness of colour is to be expected. This is the purpose of the re touch visit allowing us to retune your enhancement.

POST-TREATMENT CARE

Eyeliner Aftercare

Good aftercare is a vital part of your treatment. Failure to follow the aftercare instructions may lead to your treatment failing to heal properly or as desired.

Please ensure that you read, understand and follow the aftercare plan below. If you are unsure about any of the instructions, you must contact us as soon as possible so that we can clarify them for you.

Expected Symptoms

For the first four days after treatment, you should expect the following symptoms.

They are part of the normal healing process.

  • Minor redness, bruising, swelling and tenderness of the eyelids.
  • Eyelashes that stick together, particularly overnight
  • Dryness and itchiness in the treated area.

Care the first 2 days

Reduce swelling by applying an ice pack as necessary. Ensure the ice pack is wrapped in muslin or a similar material so that it does not stick to the surface of your skin. Do not apply ice directly onto your eye area. Over the counter remedies such as antihistamines can also help reduce swelling. Do not wear contact lenses during this period.

Care for the first 7 days

Apply the aftercare healing balm or Vaseline every day, three times a day using a cotton bud. To minimise the risk of infection, always wash your hands thoroughly before applying the balm and only use a separate cotton bud for each application. To avoid cross-contamination, never dip a cotton bud back into the aftercare balm after it has been on your eyes. We recommend that you only use a gentle facial cleanser to freshen your skin during the first 7 days. Do not vigorously wash or splash your face. Instead gently clean the eye area with damp cotton pads. If your eye enhancement gets wet, gently pat the area dry using a clean tissue. Keep your hair away from your enhancement to prevent the possibility of infection.

For the first two weeks

Do not expose your eyes to direct sun, tanning treatments, Jacuzzis, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools and direct shower spray. Do not receive bleaching, waxing, electrolysis or laser hair removal treatments close to your enhancement. All of these can affect the healing process or cause infection.

Some itching is normal, however you must not pick, peel or rub your enhancement as the colour may heal unevenly and you will risk infection, which in turn could lead to scarring. Always allow the colour to flake away by itself.

Do not apply make-up close to, or on your eyes for at least 3 days post treatment. After 3 days use only a new mascara until the enhancement has healed fully.

Use eye-cream sparingly and avoid the enhancement.

Do not use or have any skincare beauty treatments for 5 days after treatment.

When outside; use sunglasses to protect your eyes from wind and pollution.

Do not receive eyelash tinting, permanent curling or artificial eyelash application.

Control Treatment

Once your eyes have healed fully, you may notice some unevenness of colour. This is not uncommon and a control treatment is included in your initial cost to rectify any blemishes or uneven tones. You should book this treatment within the first 3 months of your initial treatment. If you do not attend a control visit in the first three months, then you may be charged for a touch-up appointment. Any cancellations for control treatments should be made with 48 hours’ notice. If you do not attend your appointment without cancelling, you will be charged for any further treatments.

Important notes

It is possible that you may lose some eyelashes during the healing process. Lost eyelashes will normally grow back within 4 months. Your selected colour will be stronger and more sharply defined for 5 to 7 days after application but will soften and lighten during the healing process. The approximate healing period is 14 days, however healing can be prolonged if your immune system is compromised, if you are generally stressed and by poor diet. Conjunctivitis in relation to permanent cosmetic eye enhancement is however a rare occurrence. However; having lash or eyeliner enhancement can occasionally result in an eye infection. If your enhancement displays any sign of conjunctivitis get an antibiotic eye cream from a chemist or your doctor. You should always seek medical advice for any eye infections.

Long term care

If you are planning a chemical peel, eye surgery or an MRI scan, please inform your doctor of your permanent cosmetics. Please inform the National Blood Service if you donate blood, as you may not be eligible to give blood for a year post application.

Lips Aftercare

Aftercare is a vital part of your treatment. Failure to follow the aftercare instructions may lead to your treatment failing to heal properly or as desired. Please ensure that you read, understand and follow the aftercare plan below. If you are unsure about any of the instructions, you must contact us as soon as possible so that we can clarify them for you.

Lips

Good aftercare is absolutely essential for your lips to heal with the best results. While can’t avoid using your lips there are a number of ways that you can protect them during the healing process. Permanent make up is applied by breaking the top layer of skin to insert colour in the lower layers. Your body then heals these breaks like any other cut. The healing process takes up to 14 days, however it can take longer if your immune system is compromised, or if you are stressed or keep a generally poor diet. Following your treatment, you should expect to experience some or all of these symptoms for up to 4 days. These are all part of the normal healing process.

  • Swelling and redness.
  • Tenderness
  • Flaking and mild itchiness as the lips heal
  • You may also experience dry skin for up to 3 weeks.

Post treatment, your selected colour will be stronger and sharply defined for 4 – 5 days before the top layer of skin sheds away. It will then appear as if little or no colour is present. This is completely normal and over the following two weeks the colour will blossom into a softer version of the original colour.

Aftercare

For the first 2 days

Reduce swelling by applying an ice pack as necessary. Ensure the ice pack is wrapped in muslin or a similar material so that it does not stick to the surface of your lip. Do not apply ice directly onto your lips. Over the counter remedies such as antihistamines and ibuprofen can also help reduce swelling.

For the following 7 days

Apply the aftercare healing balm every day, twice a day using a cotton bud.

To minimise the risk of infection, always wash your hands thoroughly before applying the balm and only use a separate cotton bud for each application. Never dip a cotton bud back into the aftercare balm after it has been on your lips.

If you need to clean your lips in the first week, gently wipe them with a make-up pad or sponge dipped into cooled boiled water and gently pat them dry using a clean tissue.

Do not use a make-up remover or other artificial wipe.

During the first 7 days we also recommend that you use a gentle facial cleanser to freshen your skin rather than soap and water. Apply a layer of Vaseline to your lips before you clean your face, to avoid them getting wet. You should also apply a layer of Vaseline before brushing your teeth for the same reason. Gently remove the Vaseline with a make-up pad or sponge once you have finished.

For the first two weeks

Do not expose your lips to direct sun, tanning treatments, Jacuzzis, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools and direct shower spray. Do not receive bleaching, waxing, electrolysis or laser hair removal treatments close to your enhancement. All of these can affect the healing process or cause infection.

Some itching is normal, however you must not pick, peel or rub your enhancement as the colour may heal unevenly and you will risk infection, which in turn could lead to scarring. Always allow the colour to flake away by itself.

Do not apply make-up close to, or on your lips for at least 3 days post treatment.

Do not eat spicy spicy, salty or highly dyed food and drink for 3 days. You should, also drink through a straw for 3 days.

To prevent infection, do not kiss for 5 days after treatment.

Do not use or have any skincare beauty treatments for 5 days after treatment.

Cold Sores

If you have ever had a cold sore, then lip treatments may trigger an outbreak. To help prevent this, you must use an anti-herpes medication, such as Zovirax 5 times daily for the first 7 days after treatment. If an outbreak does occur it will generally begin on day 3 of the healing process.

Control Treatment

Once your lips have healed fully, you may notice some unevenness of colour. This is not uncommon and a control treatment is included in your initial cost to rectify any blemishes or uneven tones. You should book this treatment within the first 3 months of your initial treatment. If you do not attend a control visit in the first three months, then you may be charged for a touch-up appointment. Any cancellations for control treatments should be made with 48 hours notice. If you do not attend your appointment without cancelling, you will be charged for any further treatments.

Long Term Care

Use a good sunscreen. Sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics. If you are planning a chemical peel, laser treatment or an MRI scan, please inform the technician of your permanent cosmetics. Please inform the National Blood Service if you donate blood, as you may not be eligible to give blood for a year post application.
