Semi-Permanent Makeup:


What is semi-permanent Make-Up?

Semi-permanent makeup can produce amazing results to enhance your natural beauty and enhance the features of the face you wish to highlight. For a small investment the results of flawless, stunning make up can last for years. You can now look forward to having denser, shapely eyebrows, or create a sophisticated, Old-Hollywood glamorous appearance by having a beauty mark created, or enhance your pre-existing beauty marks. Look and feel beautiful in your bare skin with semi-permanent make up.

Semi-Permanent makeup is the name for Micro Pigmentation; the process of implanting pigment into the area-of-choice. It may also be known as cosmetic tattooing. The treatment is much less intimidating and gentler than your traditional, generic tattoo gun and needle, created specifically for the more sensitive areas, such as the face. Micro pigmentation is a specialised procedure that should only be carried out by highly trained professionals such as Ella Stokes, who was prestigiously trained by Karen Betts at Noveau.

Ella will firstly proceed to give you a FREE consultation prior to treatment and discuss any concerns or questions you have about the treatment, and with trial-and-error, once you have confirmed the shape you believe fits you best, you have the option to have your brow or beauty mark on the same day. If you wish to proceed to treatment, we apply a local anaesthesia to the area where you will receive treatment. The treatment should not be painful, however you will feel mild discomfort as your face is a sensitive area to tattoo.

All semi-permanent procedures take a minimum of 2 visits and require a patch test and FREE consultation prior treatment.

The area that the pigment will be placed is applied with make up first so the client can confirm they are happy to with the expected result. A numbing solution is then applied and the micro pigmentation is carried out whilst the client is lying comfortably on the bed.

Immediately after the procedure the area may be slightly red and swollen but this will soon subside. The pigment will appear darker and more intense for several days as some is still lying on the first layer of the skin. It is asked that the client does not get the area wet for 48 hours. Complete healing can take up to six weeks to settle into the skin and the true colour to be seen. As part of your procedure with Joanna Twyman, a follow up treatment is provided. This visit will assess how the pigment has gone into the skin and whether alterations are required.

Each visit should be spaced out between 4 – 6 weeks and you should follow the prescribed aftercare advice from our technicians to ensure your desired result.
