July 22, 2015: Wake up with make up!

Have you ever thought of having Semi-Permanent Make Up and wondered what it is all about? We spoke to Paula Aldridge our in-house cosmetic tattoo specialist.


How long have you been doing semi-permanent make up?

Over ten years now. I trained with Nouveau Contour, a leading company in this field and gained experience while running my own salon for over eight years.  I know it is important to provide a professional and reliable service and customer satisfaction is essential.

Who can benefit from semi-permanent make up?

Almost anyone as long as they are 18 years or over.  There are a number of reasons why someone has semi-permanent make up.  Some want to save the hassle of daily application of make-up, others want to change and enhance their looks. It is also suitable for people who can’t wear make-up for some reason such as allergies, lifestyle or medical reasons.

Does it change how I look?

It can be used to imitate traditional make-up but can also be used to subtly change features – lip contours can be improved, eye contours enhanced and brow shape changed.


How does it work?

Pigment is applied to the upper layers of the skin – a technique known as permanent cosmetic, cosmetic tattooing or semi-permanent make up.

How long will it last?

It will vary depending on personal factors such as skin type, diet, genetic factors and so on, however, as a guide, 12-18 months although this can be extended with the use of colour-boost treatments. Remember, semi-permanent make up is a ‘low’ not a ‘no’ maintenance treatment.

Does it hurt?

We use topical anaesthetic to manage discomfort effectively and state of the art equipment ensures a comfortable treatment experience.


How long does it take?

Usually you will need two appointments four weeks apart, about one hour each. The first for consultation and treatment and the second for assessment and any final touches needed for perfection.
