PMU Treatment Questions

How long will the treatment last?

Permanent Makeup is a cosmetic  tattoo. As the name suggests it can be a permanent treatment, the pigments used for your  chosen service are implanted lightly into the upper layers of your skin and are designed by the manufactures to fade over time. There are no guarantees given that your permanent makeup will leave the skin completely. Each service will have varied results and longevity from person to person.  Environmental factors and lifestyle has an impact on your permanent makeup, so everyone is unique.  We recommend a colour boost anywhere between 18 months and 24 months or depending on the fading and personal preference.  

Is the procedure painful?

As with any tattoo procedure there will be an element of discomfort, but most clients find this to be minimal. 

How long does it take?

Please allow 3 hours for new treatments and please allow 2 hours for a retouch. Varying factors will increase or decrease the length of appointments. 

What about my medical history or current conditions?

We are required by our legal team to ask for your medical history to check for any reasons why you may not be suited to permanent makeup. If we have any concerns we simply require a note from your doctor or medical professional to give consent. 

What happens after the treatment?

Immediately after the treatment, the area can appear swollen and the colour will appear darker. The area requires a minimum of 6 weeks of natural healing between appointments, this is to ensure skin health is kept optimum and your permanent makeup heals beautifully. Full aftercare can be found on the website, and will be explained to you during your appointment. 

Tattoo Removal Questions

What is Lift?

The Li-FT® Saline Removal Solution is a non-chemical, non-acid, high salt based, fruit seed extract saline tattoo lightening solution that can lighten a tattoo or permanent makeup procedure.

Where can Lift be used?

The Li-FT® Saline  Solution is safe for use on Eyebrows, Eyeliner, Lip Vermillion borders and small body tattoos.

Can i have Lift? Do I need a patch test?

Everyone can have it! Yes, all lightening services require a patch test.

How is the Solution applied?

The saline solution is implanted and tattooed right into the skin, directly into the area of the unwanted pigment just as pigment or ink is implanted into the skin. 

Does tattoo removal hurt?

Lightening is not a pain free treatment but it is tolerable.

What Can I Expect After the Procedure?

The skin will be very red and you should expect it to be a little tender.  The area must remain clean, dry and no makeup applied to the area so a scab can form. The scabbing process is very important, during this process ink particles are drawn up into the scab and fall out during the healing process. It's important to not pick or pull at any scabs on the surface.
